So we thought we were back and then the household got poorly again – is it just us or has everyone had the non-stop sniffles since about October?

Here’s a round up of things to get you through if your household is similarly afflicted.

First off, cosy in with this blanket from A Home for All Seasons – currently at 50% off:


If you must go out – remember your brolly!  We love this Duckhead umbrella by ethical clothing superstars American Apparel, it’s available in the Mimi and Will colours, too.


Of course colder days mean clearer nights, did anyone manage to spot Mars recently?  Never fear, the planets are fully aligned in this space cape from one of our favourite designer-makers, Sewing Circus.




If you’re going to sneeze, it might as well be an educational one!  Ouch at the pricetag, but what a stunning vintage hanky from Orbiting Debris on Etsy.

And if all else fails, well, there’s always Marshmallows, hot chocolate and a movie… We suggest you follow Edinburgh-based Burgh Bakes on Facebook for special deals and news about new flavours *cough* Prosecco and Rose *cough*.  



And if you’re under the weather, we hope you’re feeling better soon.

Hello, March!

After a blogging hiatus at the start of 2014, we’re back with some Mimi and Will news.  Behind the scenes we’ve been beavering away with new plans for the rest of this year.  We’ve been talking to a handful of very nice shops about stocking our t-shirts so that more people can discover the tops that you and your children love.

We’ve been working on our branding, and making plans for an updated website and a photoshoot now that the light is starting to last past tea time and the weather is brightening up, too.

We also have some new designs on the slate, and have been collaborating with some really exciting people from the worlds of illustration, art and design.  We can’t wait to show you our new samples later in the year once our new micro collection is ready.

We’ll be back again soon with more news, thoughts and musings – we have plenty to tell you.  But don’t forget in the meantime, you can always find us on Facebook and Twitter for more frequent updates – see you there!
