BABY SLEEP: myHummy
Say hello to white noise, the sleep saviour that will help your newborn achieve a peaceful night’s sleep. White noise has a soothing consistency that reminds baby of the safe and enclosed environment of your tummy. It also increases the likelihood of your baby falling asleep by three times. myHummy bears emit white and pink noise sounds and can play the sound non-stop for twelve hours to help your baby sleep through the night; there’s a standby option too wherein the sound starts up when the bear detects baby stirring. Read the full low-down here.

TRAVEL: Samsonite’s Holiday Essentials
If, like us, you’re dreaming of sunnier climates or ski escapes, ease the holiday countdown by shopping some travel essentials. We’re loving the Samonsnite Dalmatian print for adults, as well as the fantastic kids’ spinner suitcases and brilliant backpacks. Here are a few favourites:
VEGAN: Marks and Spencer’s vegan shoe line
Marks & Spencer has unveiled its first ever vegan shoe range for spring. Due to customer demand, and the popularity of its vegan food and beauty ranges, the collection has landed in time for Veganuary. The footwear, which adds to the synthetic range, is 100% vegan-friendly, from the process to the materials that have been used. The collection spans across womenswear, menswear and kidswear and is available in store and online.
