5 Cute Hairstyles For Girls

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are my own.

One of the things that a mum with little girls has to deal with on a daily basis is how to style their little darling’s hair before she set off to school or go about her day-to-day girl activities. Of course, mum knows that a cool hairstyle can make or break her girl’s day so it is up to her to make sure she is all made up and sporting the coolest hairstyle at any given time.

Here are a few easy and cute hairstyles for little girls your mum might want to consider doing next:

Banded Bob

For girls with short ‘dos, and for very small girls, win your daughter’s heart by adding some level of cuteness to her bob with a lovely headband with flowers or big bows.

dressing to the nines

fashion, kids fashion, grown up stuff, tips and tricks

It might probably take a few more years before you see me dress to the nines. If I would have my way I’d rather be dressed in my favorite ensemble of a comfy tee and a shorts, with my worn-out pair of trainers, to boot!

Of course, special occasions later on in life might leave me with no other option but to put one of those uncomfortable dress shirt or that 3-piece suit, for example, on. Some of these occasions include  school graduations, my first communion, or, I don’t know, a wedding or two, perhaps. I might have to be forced to put on my Sunday best just so I won’t look under-dressed or out-of-place in a place teeming with beautifully-dressed people.

I thought weddings are always a good excuse to dress up. I was the ring-bearer to my tita‘s wedding and even when I had to wear this itchy barong for several hours, I absolutely enjoyed the experience + the thrill of walking down the aisle with my family.

If you think about it, it probably isn’t a bad idea to dress up when the situation calls for it. A button-down long-sleeved shirt paired with a nice slacks in darker shade will probably do the trick. Add a pair of loafers {or a dark slip-ons, if I can pull it off!} + I shall be all set!

a lovely wedding dress am sure mum will love

Dressing up for girls, on the other hand, can be rather complicated. I know that apart from taking too long to choose which dress to try out first + buy, they have quite a number of things to take into consideration, like the color and style of the dresses that would best suit their complexion + their body type, or which pieces of jewelry to go with that dress, for instance. It will be quite an episode am sure. + we have not even talked about shoes!

Anyways, I think the key to dressing to the nines successfully is simply to choose the items that not only look good on you, but those that make you the most comfortable, too. Add to that just the right amount of self-confidence + you’ll be good to go!

Tips When Shopping For Toddlers’ Shoes

guest post, grown up stuff, kids fashion, tips + tricks
 

the funky grom trollop in cool red color

It is that time of the year again when mum is planning to get me a new pair of shoes since the Christmas season is just around the corner. If you must know, I do not normally wear shoes. I am mostly clad in my sandals as I prefer to wear them whenever we are out and I guess mum agreed that they are the most comfortable for my feet. So, I seldom wear my pair of rubber shoes and always opt for my comfy sandals before heading out the door. For this year, though, mum is considering to get me a pair of shoes from Reef, or similar shops, for a change. Brands like this have the style and sensibility of shoes while giving your feet the comfort of sandals, just perfect for rowdy little boys like me!

Shopping for toddlers’ shoes can be quite tricky but here are a few tips from mum you might want to keep in mind the next time you go shopping for your little one’s footwear:

Go For Comfort

Little boys and girls loves to move around a lot, and it is rather difficult to be our fun and boisterous way when we are moving about in tired and aching feet, that is why comfort is the first thing you need to consider whenever you plan to buy us shoes! Opt for those brands and styles that are made of soft fabrics and similar material that will protect our little digits without hurting them. Mum’s top pick is this cool and groovy pair of Grom Trollop slip-on shoes. It sure resembles her own pair of slip-ons, so we can go out in our matching shoes!

Consider Style

Of course, mums want their kiddos to be this little fashionistas, so they would always opt for those kid-friendly, yet stylish brands that will make their little ones look awesome! Going for shoes in different colorful shades would be ideal, but it is also important to stick to some of the basic and general colors that will go well with your little ones’ clothes. This Grom Soulwolf‘s neutral shade is a perfect example, as they will go so well with any little boy’s wardrobe.

Let the Little One Choose

Nothing excites us more than to have a say in any decision our parents make, so make sure you get the little ones’ opinion and consider it before making a purchase. The trick is to give us a couple of different shoes to choose from to make your job easier. Narrow your choices and let us pick which of the pairs we’d like to bring home, it will make us look forward to wearing the item knowing that we chose it ourselves. Plus, it also allows for everyone to enjoy the shopping experience to the fullest!
