Little Choopie hearts Style Collective

I love Style Collective! Yesterday I received an email from the lovely Amanda at Style Collective with a link. Upon opening the link I found that Style Collective had written up a gorgeous feature on Little Choopie. You can read the feature here.

I am so excited that Little Choopie got such a lovely write up from Style Collective and even more excited to just be featured in this amazing style community. If you haven't already been over to Style Collective you really do need to check it out. Not just for budding fashionistas' and their mummies, this amazing fashion community also houses urban design, urban living and bridal style. Something for everyone and an absolutely sensational read.

Thanks again to the great team over at Style Collective for featuring Little Choopie, we really are thrilled beyond words to have such wonderful people writing great things about us.

Marveling over MintiMoo

Photobucket

I wonder if there is anything that the gorgeous Andrea from Soda Pop Kids isn't good at!

This week Andrea set about launching her second business baby, MintiMoo shoes. Having just received our first pair of MintiMoo boots in the post yesterday (talk about super speedy service!) I can tell you that we are 100% hooked on what Andrea has done with these amazing little shoes.

On the MintiMoo website the shoes are described as buttery soft and I would have to agree. I have never felt children's shoes so soft before. They really are just divine. To believe it, you really do have the feel the quality of these shoes. I am so impressed.

Andrea writes this in her about us section of the MintiMoo website:
"I want MintiMoo shoes to not only stand up to everyday wear and tear, but to also look fresh, funky, colourful and fun! I want you to want to put them on your children, knowing that they not only look good, but that they are also good for your childs feet. MintiMoo: fresh, colourful, funky, fun shoes for kids!" We definitely think you have hit the nail on the head Andrea, and believe these words ring so true of Mintimoo.

Well done on your new business launch Andrea and know that we will back back soon to buy our second pair of MintiMoo shoes. (just as soon as we can decide which gorgeous pair we want!!)

Little Choopie Hearts Ministylista

Thanks again to Jen from Ministylista for hosting this last fortnights Little Choopie win a bodysuit of your choice competition.



For those of you who just new to Little Choopie and reading about this for the first time, we asked Little Choopie and Ministylista fans to come up with a new design for our t-shirts and bodysuits and a new design for Christmas.

There were some brilliant ideas coming through the Little Choopie mailbox. Some of our fans have some really fabulous imaginations but in the end it was a really tough call between two terrific ladies, Anna Codey (from cradlejam) and Kym Teale.

Both ladies came up with some really amazing design concepts that really took into consideration the current designs of Little Choopie and the new look design of the website. Anna came up with some amazing ideas involving a Hot air balloon (I really can't wait to get this design started) and Kym who absolutely adores Christmas (as do I) came up with some fabulous Little Choopie Christmas designs including our Little Choopie bird decorating his Little Choopie home.

Given, I think these ladies really took into consideration the Little Choopie design and feel I am awarding them both the main prize!! Well done girls!! I can't wait to expand on the brilliant designs you both have offered.

Thank you again for being apart of our first Ministylista and Little Choopie give-away. Do stayed tuned and check back often because we will have many other opportunities for great give aways.

I will be in contact with both Kym and Anna for their choice of bodysuit and there details.

Fun and Fizz with Soda Pop Kids

Here at Little Choopie we are very proud of our stockists and wanted to give you a little insight into how these wonderful people think with our Little Choopie fun quiz. Do go and check out there stores, they all have an amazing array of goodies in store, including some of your favourite Little Choopie products.



First cab of the rank, is the gorgeously stunning Andrea from Soda Pop Kids. Here are her answers to our quiz:

1. I love a story behind how business came up with their names, how did you come up with yours?

Well, I think a store name needs to be something fun and catchy, a name that will stand out from the crowd ... and to cut a long story short (yes, it's a very long story!), we were discussing what I could call the site and throwing names around. I said that I wanted something fun, something poppy, something fizzy ... hence Soda Pop Kids!


2. Running a business can be a stressful time, what do you love doing to unwind?

I love to read! I don't get much of a chance, but when I start a novel I just zone out. I also love taking photos, and hope to get back into that again soon.


3. What are your three favourite products in your store at the moment?

Ohh, tough question! I love the Little Lark tees. Christy has produced an amazing range this Summer, lots of organic and lots of colour. I am also in love with the gorgeous Princess Ratbag Pettiskirts, and the DINGaLING range is pretty amazing!


4. I love buying childrens book for my Little Choopie can you tell us your favourite childrens book?

We love 'Mr Pepper's Perfect Pet Shop' at the moment... who wouldn't love a baby zebracorn as a pet! Too cute!


5. If you could pack up and go on a holiday tommorow, where would you go and who would you take?

I would take my partner Dan, and go to a resort: relax on a beach, nice food, warm weather ... too tempting!


6. What are your children's fashion must haves for this summer?

For Connor, the Tommy Rocket shorts and tees are perfect, and I have just ordered Imogen some Oobi pieces from Terri at Little Styles: just gorgeous!


7. Lying on a hot beach with great book or snuggled under the covers reading a great book?

Probably snuggled under the covers with a great book

and finally

8. If you were to spend your last $20.00 at Little Choopie, what would you buy?

Those gorgeous little Ribbit Ribbit ponytail holders and the flower head wraps! Bright, colourful and fun!

Mixing it with Mini Stylista's



Last night was the first ever ministylista live chat event. The creator of this wonderful and inspiring haunt for children's and baby style asked Little Choopie to be the featured designer for the night. Incredibly honoured and chuffed we were glad to jump at the chance and lend a hand at the running of the night.

Jen (ministylista's creator) did an amazing job bringing so many wonderful people together to celebrate this first chat. Although overwhelming for some at the speed in which the chat was going (us ladies do love to chat you see) I think a great night was had by all.

Little Choopie had a marvelous treasure hunt going on during the one hour chat event and from all the emails I received in my inbox I was sure I was going to crash my system but it all stayed afloat and the treasure hunt was a huge success with a few lovelies being sent some gorgeous new snap clip sets.

Our final competition for the evening is still open and open to anyone who wants to join up at www.ministylista.com.au All you have to do is email me at info@littlechoopie.com.au what you would like to see as a new design for one of our t-shirts? and what you would like to see for a christmas design. The winner will be selected after reading the entrants next Saturday evening. That gives you a week to get you entries in!!

The winner will be able to choose from the existing designs one onesie or t-shirt (in available sizes on our site).

We don't want you to miss out so please email us, message us here or send ministylista a message to be in the running to win this great prize.
