Jaxon James | New online store Feature ☆

A parents monochrome shop perfection! This fab new store that has only just opened its virtual doors is already becoming a very popular online store. Filled with beautiful monochrome inspired clothes, toys and soft furnishings what more could you want.

I am THE biggest monochrome lover and could buy everything.!!

Jaxon James is run by a passionate mum ‘Camilynn Baker’. She has 3 beautiful boys, Jack-5 , Leo – 2 , and Tom – 8 months. Being a mum of two little boys and running a business I have absolutely no idea how she does it with an extra little person thrown in the mix!

Here’s a little something ‘Cam’ ( as she likes to be called) wrote for you all to read :

‘I have always loved fashion and quickly got fed up with the same old stuff on the high street. I always get my mum to send me clothes for my boys from America or South Africa (where I was born). I researched for about 8 months and slowly JaxonJames was Born!Everything is done by myself, with some assistance from the management team (my boys lol). Before I had children I worked in project management & business development but now I’m a full time mum and couldn’t face an ‘office’ job! Running Jaxon James from home with my boys is my dream job and I love it. Every single part of it! ‘

A few of my favourite pieces from Jaxon James are these monochrome goodies listed below and I’m pretty sure they will be all working there way into our home very soon!

Milk print long sleeve tshirt
XO print knit blanket

One of my favourite things about this store is that they have so many brands from over seas that would normally take and cost ages to arrive but these guys are based in the UK !!

I’ve been getting pains only once a day for the past couple of weeks but today I’ve had quite a few so I’m just preparing myself for it to happen!!! Which I think I would be very happy about so I won’t have to be induced and nature can take it’s corse!! Wish me luck if it does happen tonight….I’m going need it!

So…… I am a huge lover of all things Monochrome!
Instagram has such an amazing showcase of beautiful monochrome nurseries and children’s rooms decor!

After receiving so many entry’s to my newborn baby gift guide competition on IG, I decided to do an extra feature of 10 stores that have THE best monochrome goodies for all little newborn babies….

Frankies Room

image

I was trying to think of my next Blog post and I thought it just had to be about Frankies Room.
If it wasn’t for his room I wouldn’t have been introduced to the amazing world of Instagram and all the lovely ladies behind the beautiful handmade shops.

Gone are the days of borders and the classic pink or blue room! FINALLY! Just because it’s a child’s room why does it have to be messy, unloved, multicoloured and just not thought out!
When Frankie was born I never had a proper nursery for him as we rented and the spare room had a huge ugly double bed in it and just not a lot of room, and frankly I didn’t really know how to decorate and work with what I had! So he just had a cot in the room and that was it really, but every time I walked in it made me miserable, I hated it! So I would just walk in get Frankie and get out, shut the door and pretend it wasn’t his room.
We finally moved into a two bed house in June this year and the spare room was empty so I had my blank canvas finally!!

My main inspiration for Frankies room I’ve got to say is from a beautiful unique website called ‘This Modern Life’ it is owned by a lovely lady called Suzanne who has the most amazing taste in home decor. She has carefully selected all these different little shops to create one of, if not the best online store for your home. Everything on the website, from the cushions to the smallest things like the wall hangers you will want to buy. It’s really is a must to go and visit!

The centre of his room is really all about his reading corner, I wanted to create a cosy quiet little place that after his bath we could go and read. Pillows pilled high a soft rug and a shelf with all his books, and it was as simple as that, Frankie’s reading corner was created. Continue reading
