When Sylvia was born I did not know what kind of hair she would have. I knew she would be half Tongan and so it could have been more fuzzy like her birth father’s or straight like mine. As she grew it became clear she had beautiful curls.
I think Sylvia’s curls make her unique. They are gorgeous and perfect. She can get away with super tight curls or the untamed look and always looks fab. She has from time to time said she wants straight hair like mummy but then I would like curls like Sylvia.
I guess thats the awesome thing about Iron straighteners and curlers, you can have either or.
At the end of the day I think she is perfect as she is and wouldn’t have it any other way! I really love my daughter’s hair. Her curls are gorgeous and it’s wonderful to see every day.
Does your baby have curly hair?
If your looking for some fabulous tips to perfect and protect your child’s curls then why not take a look at this fabulous post over on the Mommy My Way Blog. Nikki Santori talks about how she manages her child’s biracial baby hair. Her post is a great read and super useful.
Tiny Trolls of Norway Fleece Outfit Sylvia’s Style
This week Sylvia received a fantastic new outfit from Tiny Trolls of Norway which is an unique store for little ones and children based in Norway. Trolls of Norway sell warm clothing such as Winter suits, coveralls, rain suits. Fleece and Microfleece outfits.
We first discovered Trolls of Norway via Twitter and I was really impressed with the look and design of the Fleece’s on the shop website. When we were given the opportunity to review a Fleece Suit I was really excited and Sylvia chose the pink outfit.
There are a number of designs and styles and we really liked the 2 piece StoreTroll Fleece. The material 100 percent polyester which is very soft and really warm.
The fleece Jacket and trousers have the Tiny Trolls of Norway logo embossed which is a cute design and the seams are overlock stitched with in contrast colours to help the outfit stand out.
As Autumn and soon Winter is approaching this fleece outfit is the ideal Cold weather warmer for my daughter and she really does love it. I was not sure whether Sylvia would like a fleece top and trousers as she really is a dress kind of girl but she loves it so much and commented that it is so soft and warm.
This outfit will be the perfect winter warmer to wear in the evenings as Sylvia walks the Dogs Yoda and Casper with her dad and the outfit is really going to be a great addition to Sylvia’s clothing collection for the season.
I am really impressed with the quality of the clothes from Tiny Trolls of Norway. Sometimes you get an item and it can be really flimsy and cheap. This is a real quality item and I’m really grateful for the opportunity for us to review it.
Sylvia is really happy and pleased and when asked to describe her new fleece Jacket and trousers in three words she said, “Spectacular, Amazing and Soft”. I think it’s a winner for Winter. The Storetroll outfit can be purchased online for £49.99. It is best washed separately and should not be placed in the tumble dryer. I think it’s a great quality item from a very unique Children’s clothing store and look forward to seeing my daughter enjoy this item.
Disclosure: We were sent the item for review and all opinions are honest and my own.
Thankyou Tiny Trolls of Norway for the lovely outfit.
