Best Press Yet

You will know by now I have an on going love affair with Junior magazine so you can imagin the size of my smile when I opened this months edition.




'La Belle Vie' is a 2 page spread about Kate, motherhood & Belle & Boo. The photo shoot was lots of fun, Robyn was a perfect model, whilst Kate & I got all embarrassed & giggly! We have had amazing sales ever since, so Thank you, Thank you to Catherine and the team.

My sister phoned from a music festival to say she was lying in the sun flicking through Red Direct & had spotted our Joy Aqua postcard on this beautiful notice board I might have to buy one.


Russ & I made the most of the sun in Devon this weekend, Kayaking, cycling, surfing and the best bit.... fresh fish & chips on the beach with a bottle of bubbly, it doesn't get much better than that.

  3. Mandy & Kate (and Robyn too of course): congratulations! It's great that 'the other side' of Belle & Boo receives such great press as well.

    Love,

    PS: Thanks for taking photographs of the article itself. I had to squeeze my eyes tight at times, but I was still able to read it!
