When Pyjama Factory got in…

Personalised Nursery Prints | Timeo and Chloe

GIFTED AD | Baby K is turning 2 in just a few weeks.  As with most parents with their last baby, I feel like holding on to him being a baby for a tad longer.  If I can squeeze him into babygrows past 2 years old, I would!  But for now, I will hold on the special memories and cherish those where and when I…

Kids wardrobe organisation with Belo and Me – Review

Organised house…organised mind right?!  When it comes to kids wardrobe organisation, I must admit I can be a little..whats the world…jumbled!  As with many parents, I tend to buy more clothes for my children than I do myself, and with Baby K in particular being 22 months, he grows out of his clothing much quicker than the other two.  So i find myself with his…

Disney – What I got for Christmas

I love these sorts of blogs/vlogs.  And this is my FIRST ever ‘What I got…’ post.  I wasn’t sure if it comes across a little bit braggy when people share all of the gifts they received for their birthday or Christmas.  I do not think that when I read or watch this type of posts.  However, I would hate to think anyone would think that…

Hi and welcome to The Willow Tree. I’m Michelle, also known as Shel and I am a mama to three beautiful crazy kids – I have two handsome boys and a wild and wonderful girl.

I really wanted a concrete place to share my thoughts, ideas and my ups and downs on family life, sharing our family adventures and love for fashion. I’d love for it to be a community of support and advice for others too.

I chat everything from Disney, parenting hacks to the latest haul from Primark! I love going on family breaks and holidays and love to document these times of creating special memories.
