Feeling, hot, hot, hot... so we'll be heading down to the Southbank this weekend to check out Appearing Rooms on the Southbank. Danish artist Jeppe Hein has created an interactive fountain where walls of water appear creating rooms, try and walk through the rooms without getting wet. A great way to cool off and we guarantee Dad won't be able to resist joining in, but we bet he gets wet first!

With the weather heating up it's time to ditch the city and head to the beach. Here at Sparkle & Spin we have a great range of hip shorts that scream Summer. For surfer dudes we love Molo's Graphic Print Short and Katvig's board shorts, and for the girls the super cute Holly's ballon shorts, in coral or blue, are perfect for lazing on the sand or relaxing by the pool. So pull on your shorts and sunnies and relax!

This week the shop seems to have been taken over by animals! Everywhere we look we have new furry friends waiting to be taken home and loved. Louie Louis wild Zebra print dress is a gorgeous versatile shape that looks great on it's own or with leggings and Freoli's vintage style cow print dress is just gorgeous. Perfect for pocket money treats we have some cute animal figurines and who doesn't love Walt Disney's Bambi. For birthday presents you can't go wrong with a beautifully illustrated Charley Harper peg puzzle or colouring book.

Since Stine arrived back from her New York adventure she has been making us green with envy with all her tales of NYC!! So this week we've decided to share some of her fun and give you a taste of NYC with our Something for the weekend feature.
The High Line is an amazing elevated park on reclaimed railroad tracks that has been transformed into a beautiful urban oasis, where you can relax on a lounger and take in the views of the city. A perfect place to let the kids run wild, we will be adding this to the list for our next trip to the Big Apple.
The High Line is located on Manhattan's West Side and is open from 7:00 am to 10:00 pm daily. It runs from Gansevoort Street in the Meatpacking District to 34th Street, between 10th & 11th Avenues.

Stine has been jetsetting and has just returned from an adventure in New York (there will be tales from her soon). To help her holiday blues we’ve decided to get out the stars and stripes. If you want to get in the spirit check out Katvig’s stripes, Louie Louis leggings and the must have for the cool summer evenings is Molo’s star hoodie. It will be the 4th July before you know it!

We're not entirely sure that pink does make the boys wink but here at Sparkle & Spin the girls can't get enough enough of it!! From Hollys Pink Mega Clover BodySuit with shocking pink trim for the tinies, to Katvigs Pink and Grey Stripy Playsuit we've got enough pink to put a smile on the face of the girliest girl :)

And trumbeled off to London. For the past few weeks we have been enjoying playing spot the elephant on our many journeys across the city. The Elephant Parade is a conservation project that is raising awareness of the endangered asian elephant, the event has brought 250 brightly coloured elephants and dotted them around the city. Each elephant has been decorated by a different designer or celebrity and are for sale by auction. Until then they can be found brightening the streets of London and we can't think of a better game to play this half term than spot the elephant. So grab a panama hat and get hunting...
