Frugi is one of my very favourite brands. I like that they are organic and ethically-made, but mostly I am in love with the bright colours and adorable designs. And having met the people behind the brand on a couple of occasions I can confirm that they are genuinely lovely too, which always makes my geeky little heart happy. There’s nothing worse than buying beautiful things from ugly (on the inside) people. We started buying Frugi when I was expecting the boys and they were lucky enough to be asked to review some Frugi for their great-grandma’s 80th birthday party last summer, so we have quite a stash of it by now that I am so excited to pass down to the little girls.
This year the twins have been invited to be Brand Ambassadors for Frugi as part of the #FrugiFamily and we were delighted to say yes. One of my favourite things about brand ambassadorship rather than a straight-up review is the opportunity to really develop a relationship with a brand that we believe in, and to support them throughout the year.
We were invited to pick an item each for the twins from their new collection and deliberated for a while between the ‘Lovely’ Babygrow two-pack and choosing some proper, outdoor clothes for the boys. In the end we decided to purchase the babygrows ourselves for the boys’ little sisters when they come along in July (and we subsequently have) and to request the whale Kneepatch Dungarees and the rainbow Hayle Hoody for the little chaps. These we teamed with a cardigan from M&S in a shade somewhere between coral and red (Balthazar) and Boden trousers (Lysander), although the Frugi range is cleverly designed so that you can actually kit your child out in head to toe Frugi if you would like to do so.
The boys are at an age where getting them to stand and pose is virtually impossible unless we’re indoors in our own home with no distractions, but that’s no fun so we took them to our local farmer’s market for the morning instead. They attracted plenty of attention dashing about in their new togs whilst we followed haplessly with the camera, but they looked so cute that I don’t think that anybody minded. And they didn’t run into VERY many legs anyway…
We are a little obsessed with video and vlogging at the moment, so we thought it might be fun to make a little film of our mini adventure. You can see the boys – and their gear – in action, as well as our favourite place to spend a Sunday morning, the Chislehurst Farmers’ Market.
I’d love to send you to my #FrugiFamily sister Mum in a Nutshell to see what her little ones got up to in their Frugi togs. Do pop over and say hello!
Oh, and if you love Frugi as much as we do, you might like to head over to their website where they’re hosting a fab competition to win a three-night campervan tour for two besties and their families, plus Frugi clothing and a photoshoot for the children as well as some rather cool other prizes. If you can’t think of a friend you’d like to take campervanning, please feel free to take us along if you win…
