Vintage & Whimsical Inspired brands for children

Secert Garden
It was a chilly and slightly foggy autumn morning when we visited Garden Hill in Hampstead. It’s one of the beautiful gardens in this area and we call it our secret garden.

We have lived here for almost 10 years and although my daughters attend the local school we had never come across this garden until we found it by chance last spring.

We fell in love with it - it is so quiet and peaceful with relatively few visitors - you can’t quite believe that you are so central to London and just a short walk from a vibrant high street. As well as the stunning garden, there is also an amazing house and lake to explore. At this time of year the colours from the changing leaves and flowers are delightful.

My daughters love this place. They can walk freely and enjoy chatting about the names of plant. (To be honest, I know very little about the names of flowers or plants). My second daughter loves flowers and is always slightly disappointed about mummy’s lack of expertise!

My girls like to carry their treasures, toys and mini packed lunch with this cutest maileg mouse. I swear my girls are obsessed with it - playing over the logs.

On Sundays, we like to dress in comfortable and easy to wear items, as the girls are here with the pinafore skirt and bloomers.

Enjoy exploring x
