    The Essential One Ambassador Announcement and Giveaway


    Last week I was absolutely over the moon to be announced as an Ambassador for one of my favourite baby clothing brands The Essential One.


    I am thrilled to have been chosen as not only do we absolutely love their gorgeous clothes and their snuggly blankets but as you all know (not that I go on about it or anything!) my Little Mr is the face of their new Autumn Winter 2013 catalogue and features both in the catalogue and online, modelling some of their beautiful collection.

    Before Little Mr was born, I was introduced to their clothing range and bought a few pieces in anticipation of my new arrival. Since then we’ve bought more of their range for Little Mr to wear as we have been very impressed with the quality of the clothes and they wash beautifully too.  Friends and family have also been treated to a few pieces for their new arrivals so I’m more than happy to recommend the brand.
