Bubbles Before Bed Book Trailer

Yipppeeeeeeee, we have a Bubbles Before Bed book trailer made by the very wonderful and talented Clare (music courtesy of her equally talented husband)

It is so lovely seeing Belle & Boo come to life like this, my brain is whirring with possibilities for future animations, I just need to get some new stories and illustrations down on paper. We are thrilled with how well the book is doing, Tracy ordered our second print run last week.

Our Halloween Cupcake wrappers have been getting out and about, although this first picture in The Telegraph focuses a bit too much on me and not the wrappers for my liking!

Autumn/Winter Collection 2010

At last our new clothes have arrived and they are so, so beautiful, they really are. The Boo Winter coat is an absolute favourite with all of us Belle & Boo ladies, the pointy hood, the chocolate tassel, the Boo lining, squeal. Also it's a great price at £55, made from duck egg blue Merino wool, a future Belle & Boo classic me thinks!
I wont write too much just show you all the stunning photographs we have. Taken by 2 amazing photographers Clare & Coral we couldn't be happier, available in our shop and on Etsy now!

Boo Winter Coat

Polka Dot Pinny £27
Perfect for Christmas day, Belle will certainly be wearing hers. Made from baby cord, with apple buttons, pretty pockets and lined in our signature Boo print.

Reversible Umbrella Parade Skirt £24 & Blouse £21
Sold separately, but oh so cute worn together.
This is a walking piece of art, my Umbrella parade print has been screen printed around the bottom of the skirt with stab stiched rain and if you ever get bored of looking at that simply turn it inside out and find a beautiful embroidered chocolate Boo. The blouse features Belle & Boo playing in a puddle on one side with stab stitched rain and on the reverse side our signature repeat Boo pattern.

Here are a few of my favourite photos from one of our photo shoots

Borrowed Photos

As usual there are a hundred and one exciting things going on in the world of Belle and Boo, but frustratingly my camera has frozen, so thank you to all the lovely people that have been forwarding me their photos.

First up thanks to Catherine from the Bristol Parenting Cafe for these pics of her beautiful daughter wearing our Freedom dress. If you like it GOOD NEWS we have reduced the last few in the shop to make way for our Autumn/Winter collection, which will be available (if everything goes to plan) by the end of next week. The dress is now just £27.50, it is so pretty and well made and there will never be any more after these have gone, so don't miss out.

Secondly thank you to Suzannah for her photos from a VERY exciting photo shoot I was part of for YOU Magazine, about woman and their little black dresses. I had my hair make up done which is always a treat and met a bunch of wonderful, interesting, creative, motivated woman.

Then today Kate and I were at the NCT show in Croydon, I will have to wait for the professional photos to show you our stand, but what I can show you is this INCREDIBLE skirt that Tina from Tobyboo made from her Etsy craft pack.

I couldn't resist buying a few bits and bobs from her stand including this cute, cute tape.

We have been getting some great press in Australia, which reminds this time last year Russ and I were getting ready for our 3 month home exchange to Sydney, booooooooo if only it were an annual event!

Lastly Kate find these GORGEOUS photos on the web taken by Teka e Fabio from Brazil. If only this Belle & Boo cafe was life size.
