The beautiful Garnet Fairy Dress would be top of the list for any little girls birthday! Izzy wanted it on from the second she unwrapped it. She was in such a rush to get it on we had to leave her pyjama top on to begin with!

With soft velvet straps and a stunning rose detailed body any little girl will feel like a fairy princess wearing the Garnet Fairy Dress. When we finally managed to remove the pyjama top we got some lovely photo’s like the one above which I shared on Instagram.

I love the matching headband, wings and wand. The wings are much better quality than any we’ve bought before and are decorated with silver glitter. Of course every fairy needs a matching butterfly wand too! 

Sizing

I make no attempt to cover the fact Izzy is pretty big for her age, at just 3 years old she is on the 95th percentile and is already in 4-5 years clothing with a little belly room due to her height. We asked for 5-6 years as we’ve previously had issues with dresses being far too tight and a little too short. Izzy is pretty stocky and it can be difficult to find dress up clothes that A) Fit well and B) Don’t feel like they will fall apart when pulled on. Using Pretend To Bee’s size guide I was pleased with the outcome as she will be able to wear it for a while.. until another growth spurt at least!

Having seen the quality and detail of this dress we couldn’t help but take a look around the Pretend To Bee website to see what else was available, especially for Izzy as she is lacking dressing up clothes at the moment.

New Arrivals

We couldn’t help but notice the fantastic new arrivals such a this Giant Peach Costume with a worm puppet for just £16.95! Such a fun costume for world book day or a Roald Dahl party for 3-7 year olds. We are great Roald Dahl fans and the girls instantly recognised which book it was from.

Both girls absolutely love this Pink Unicorn costume which is also for 3-7 year olds and super cute! Eva is a little sad that she is too old for it though haha! We love the wings and tail and at just £15.95 it’s a great addition to any dressing up box.

For Nursery children these High Vis Nursery Jackets are absolutely fantastic at just £2.95 each. Available in 4 colours – Yellow, Orange, Pink & Blue and in 2 sizes – 2 to 3 years and 3 to 5 years. These are great for Nursery day trips or useful during the holidays when going to busy parks.

Izzy’s 3rd Birthday Weekend Celebrations

It was Izzy’s 3rd Birthday yesterday! Thanks to Martyn, Hannah & all the kids Izzy also had a lovely BBQ party. Izzy loves food so although she said she didn’t want a birthday party a BBQ was acceptable.

She loved munching away on sweet treats, sausages & burgers across the day.  I caught her looking pretty chilled out with all the kids watching TV, munching away haha!

Munch time

Hannah had some fab party supplies that the kids all loved, especially the Pinata and party bags! All the kids had fun scrabbling to get the most sweets.


We loved the pirate cake candles too & this lovely birthday cake. 😍 I totally need those for my birthday too! 😉

We had a slight accident where Izzy hit her head quite hard and ended up with a small cut. She was soon happily playing and eating again though. She even seemed slightly impressed looking at herself in the mirror! 

Proud of her war wound

Izzy loved spending the day with everyone and singing her favourite song with Martyn. ‘Beer Beer Beer – an ode to Charlie Mops’ she heard at the Rochester Dickens festival and has loved it ever since!

Izzy’s 3rd Birthday

After a very long busy day and a rather late night she finally woke up after an hour of me waiting impatiently to celebrate her 3rd birthday. Snuggling up on the sofa with daddy to help her unwrap her presents she squealed excitedly as I passed each one over.

Along with my Paw Patrol haul all from pound shops apart from the lookout tower I think she did fairly well! Izzy also got a cool looking scooter with tilt steering which she couldn’t wait to try out. She is slowly getting the hang of tilting it and pushing herself along.

She received this absolutely gorgeous Garnet Fairy Set from Pretend to Bee which she couldn’t wait to put on! Complete with wings, wand & headband this gorgeous outfit is adorable & something Izzy would have picked out herself. She has barely taken it off since and wanted it on first thing this morning! I wouldn’t definitely say it is well worth £25 for this stunning fairy set, the dress is so well made and lovely and soft inside.

Putting a spell on Mummy!

Across the day a few of our friends came by with even more presents & she was most definitely spoilt! It was most definitely all about Paw Patrol this year, she has a huge Sky & Everest balloon and lots of new characters & vehicles! Eva got a lovely soft Rainbow Dash too so she didn’t feel left out which was lovely!

We ended Izzy’s birthday with yet another birthday cake. Afterwards she happily went off to bed hugging her Skye LED Night light. I think it’s safe to say she has had a fantastic 3rd birthday!

I always worry that lack of family will make special occasions a bit rubbish, most kids have aunts, uncles, cousins etc to play with so Martyn & Hannah organising a BBQ for Izzy means a lot. It meant she got to spend the day playing with other kids and having fun!
