Dancing in the sunlight

Easter is over, it just seemed to come and go in the blink of an eye and a belly full of the brown stuff. Ah well, I’m just wiggling constantly now trying to burn off all the calories that are sitting around my bottom from the half eaten Easter eggs scattered around my house.
Kids are on mid term break, I have been working hard to keep them entertained, run the business and keep everything flowing. So far so good, so the recycling bin tells me -clink clink.
We are on the road visiting family up North and have a week at Centre Parcs, I think we are the only family in Britain never to experienced CP so in for a penny, (or rather a pound- its not cheap).
Anyway I’m keeping the blog super short as we all need holidays.
This week I’ve I been be getting prepared for our first event of the year. A rave !!!! (a super, kids disco rave). We are bloody honoured to be part of the Camp Bestival warm up gigs hosted by our friends at Big Fish Little Fish Events.
BFLF Events have invited us along to play. They are a family fun events company for the post–rave generation of parents. It’s great fun, so if you haven’t been before with your sproglets, you should try it .
The raves take place in real clubs and venues and is basically like a club but not so dark ad scary. There are play areas with tents and tunnels and a baby chill out area. A Licensed bar, free transfer tattoos, cake stalls and face painting, and that’s just for the adults ……only joking.
Music wise it will be Iain Baker and Dylan Beale plus Camp Bestival DJs leading the sets on the multi-sensory dance floor, complete with glitter cannons, bubbles and of course the giant parachute dance – what more are you looking for in an afternoon. Grab your self a beer and show baby how to boogey.

We are part of the Hackney event on the 17th but there are lots of other dates coming up too. Have a look at their site for more.
So the theme for the Rave – ( it is making me giggle now saying ‘rave‘ – yes glow sticks will be handed out, and nope I am not joking) the theme being “outer space” I have been working on a space backdrop for our photo booth installation. I’ve shared the designs with you below – I think they are great. The design basically being the idea of being a rock star as in stars and constellations. I’ve created icons of rock and pop and put them into the nights sky. Simples
Were going to bring a box of dressing up stuff and get parents and kids to pose for us in front of the sky and then send the kids free pictures. We might even have a prize for the craziest pose.
We also have a tiny stall too selling our wares so if you are looking for some cool summer stuff , or if baby poops himself again and you are all out of clean clothes we are the fifth emergency service.

Check out their site for other dates as we will be launching a competition next week to win tickets to the events in your area.
So what else is going on in Rockabye Land I hear you say?
Our Mellow Yellow collection is ON SALE right now. There are mid season sales on everywhere you go so we thought we would join in for a couple of weeks too. This range is made from a medium weight jersey fabric and it is just perfect for layering up when you are never quite sure what the weather will do. With our striped greys offset with the bright bursts of yellow and pink, perfect for our rave / disco event.
Feel free to SHOP NOW
If you spend £40 online during the sale you will get a free guitar toy/cushion (worth £16). Who doesn’t love a freebee?
Hope to see you on the 17th or feel free to drop us a line and share your thoughts.
bye for now Emma xx
