Me&I Clothing Review

Last year I was lucky enough to spend a fabulous day at The Baby Show seeing lots of lovely products and meeting new companies. One of my favourite that I met that day was Me & I, who were showcasing their gorgeous Swedish design clothing. After the show, they were kind enough to send me a dress for Pumpkin and now (very overdue) I want to tell you what we thought of it.

The dress we were sent was a Red Singoalla with Rabbit in Pocket. This particular design isn’t available now, but there is a very cute blue panda version instead!

The dress is a terry tunic, with elasticated neck and sleeves. The dress is an A-line design that is very flattering and practical for a little’un!

We absolutely loved this over the summer. It was a great dress to wear when we went swimming, as it was very easy to get dressed back into after (getting a toddler dressed after swimming without getting everything soaking wet is a pretty tricky task!). It also came into its own on holiday, when it was a great option to chuck on over a swimming costume when we went to the beach. The style and terry fabric made it very practical for playing on the beach, and it was a dream to wash and dry ready to wear again.

The beauty of many of the products sold by Me&I is that they last a long time. Pumpkin was wearing this dress last summer, but the A-line shape means that now she has grown she can wear it with leggings or trousers, as a long-line top. With a long sleeved babygro or t-shirt underneath to cover the arms, she can really wear this all year round! Our dress has been washed many many times, but still looks as good as new which shows the quality!

There were some other great design features in the Me&I range which are worth pointing out. Trousers with double fabric at the knees (hard wearing), adjustable elasticated waists and sleeves designed to be rolled up if they are too long. All these are great for getting value for money. The dress we reviewed is sold for £23 which is a fair price when you consider we are getting a whole year of wear from it.

Me&I products are sold primarily through parties, where a representative will show the products and how to put them together. There are discounts available for party hosts if thats something you fancy! Alternatively you can shop directly with a representative by visiting the website and filling in a form to find your local rep.

We are big fans of the clothing ranges from Me&I and I’ll be looking at the new season range to pick up some more wardrobe staples.

Disclosure: We were sent a dress from Me&I for the purposes of this review. No payment was received and all opinions are our own. 

Visit The Baby Show Earls Court this October

Earlier this year I was lucky enough to be invited to The Baby Show and had such a great time that I knew I wanted to make the journey up to London again this October for the Earls Court Show. This one promises to be a great show as The Baby Show celebrates its 10th Birthday!

Running from Frirday 26th – Sunday 28th October 2012, the show is a must visit for mums to be and new mums, but don’t be put off if your children are a little older. There is lots to see and do for parents of toddlers (like me!). Pumpkin is almost 2 (eek!) but I know there  will be lots of toddler friendly products on display!

So what will you find at The Baby Show? Well first off is the shopping! I love getting the chance to see and try so many different brands, from the big names to some much smaller companies. There will be over 300 brands present at the show – thats a lot of shopping!

Also available are free changing facilities courtesy of nappy recycling experts Nappies2Go, a free Fisher-Price crèche (bookable in advance), Vtech Smart Play Zone packed with innovative toys to help development through play, a shopping drop off and collect by car service, so that you don’t have to lug your shopping around with you and for the first time you can take the stress out of shopping completely by booking a personal shopping experience with Baby Concierge! Now that sounds fun!

With leading brands such as Britax, Fisher Price, Mamas & Papas, Mothercare, M&S, Stokke, Superdrug, The Gro Company & Trunki in attendance, you really could tick off your whole shopping list in one day!

A who’s who of parenting experts including Professor Robert Winston (Child of our time), Annabel Karmel MBE (The Baby & Toddler Mealplanner), Claire Byam-Cook (celebrity breastfeeding expert) and Dr Julie Coultas (baby development expert). will be on hand to offer their knowledge with events taking place on the stage all weekend.
