I'm still here

Hello everyone, I just wanted to say 'I am still here' the past few months have been a blur of moving, a difficult pregnancy, the early arrival of my twins (5 weeks) and the chaos of being a mum of twins! Slowly, slowly I am getting back into the swing of things and on that note here are a few snapshots of my gorgeous boys.

New Website!

We have a brand new beautiful website! The Belle and Boo team, led by Patrick, have been working very very hard behind the scenes with our lovely web designer to get this site just perfect. Belle and Boo really outgrew the old site long ago, so it's so nice now to have this new site that is easier for us to manage, and more importantly, easier for YOU to browse, and shop from.

Unfortunately due to our previous site being built long ago we were unable to transfer existing customers login details/profiles. So you'll have to sign up again to the new site and make new login details. By way of apology for this, and celebration, and a big thank you for being so loyal, we're offering 15% off your first purchase on the new site. Please use the voucher code in the image below at checkout.

The cover animation is taken from one of the many gorgeous spreads in Belle & Boo and the Birthday Surprise.


Boil the kettle, settle in and have a browse of Belle and Boo's new home! We hope you love it as much as we do.  We'd also love your feedback, so please get in touch if you have any comments.

Please note, you'll be redirected to a new domain name. This is only temporary, and please leave www.belleandboo.com in your bookmarks!

Make a home of Belle & Boo

We couldn't help but smile when we saw this picture that Jules sent us from Australia. This New Holland mouse (which is an Australian endangered species) was found living in her Belle & Boo Lovely Day tote while camping. With that look of guilt and the little crumbs on his nose there is no way he can plead innocence.
