Little Dancing Sloths

This weekend I journeyed to my hometown to see the fam. It was a nice, relaxing weekend spent with some of the most important people in my life. In particular, I went to see my beautiful niece perform in her end-of-year dance recital for:


hiphop sloth

…and contemporary. 


She was absolutely stunning and so poised for a girl of only eight. No fear! Very proud to call myself her Aunt and have her blow kisses to me at the end of the performance. Kinda makes some of the things you worry about on a daily basis seem trivial.


PS: The second pic is from some cute little greeting cards available on Etsy.


The Sloth Gift Guide 2014

It’s December! And that means it’s time to get onto your Chrissy shopping if you haven’t yet. Last year I posted the Ultimate Sloth Gift Guide, but each year more weird and wonderful sloth-related products and experiences seem to come into existence, so here’s my top-ten pick for 2014.

Number 10: Sloth Tops has you completely covered on this front… literally. This Majestic Sloth top is one of my favs.majesticsloth

Number 9: Sloth Wall Calendar for 2015

Lucy Cooke’s noble quest to make sloths part of everyone’s lives takes us into the future with her Hanging With Sloths calendar for 2015. The added bonus of seeing baby sloths on your wall all year round.


Number 8: Sloth Art

Etsy delivers the goods on this one. This beautiful sloth watercolour is absolutely fabulous.


Number 7: Sloth Hat

When you’re lazing around (or not?) this totally cute sloth hat is ideal for keep those little slothy ears warm.slothhat

Number 6: Sloth Clocks

Sloths have a habit of being late! Nothing wrong with that, but if you need to know the time and want to do it in lazy style, this funky vintage sloth clock (slock? cloth?) will set you right.  slothclock

Number 5: Sloth Onesie

For the intense sloth lover, you can’t go past this all-over sloth onesie from Kigurumi. Ideal for lounging, lazing, and sleeping… a sloth’s favourite activities. slothonesie

Number 4: Sloth Jewellery

Carry a little sloth close to your heart with this gorgeous sloth necklace from Etsy.


Or, if you want some finger bling, the sloth wrap-around ring is hard to beat. slothring

Number 3: Sloth Toy

Fancy your own Sueno or Duermo? This Wild Republic sloth is one of the most popular world-wide and you can cuddle him/her to your heart’s content.slothtoycuddlekin

Number 2: Meet the Sloths Series

Chill out one afternoon (or many) and have a marathon of Meet the Sloths. The amount of gasping, Aww exclaiming and heart-melting you will experience is like no other.


Number 1: Adopt a Sloth

Get the real deal through the World Wildlife Fund. You won’t get to take a sloth home, but you will be contributing to the conservation and maintenance of sloths everywhere, so that they can be around to enjoy for generations to come.


And finally…

Don’t forget to wrap your sleepy presents in some sloth wrapping paper, and send a sweet snoozy message on some sloth Christmas cards like these ones from Night Owl Paper Goods.


Happy holidays!

Nightmare on Sloth Street

Second Halloween party last night. London ZooHaven’t been to a Halloween party in a few years, and this time got invited to two! They went all out with the decorations and Jack-o-Lanterns last night too, so it was quite impressive. Bit like this sloth from London Zoo! I wore a bright green wig and went as an alien this time around. So Halloween is (finally) over for another year, so I’ll leave you with this Nightmare on Sloth Street print available on Etsy.nightmare-sloth

Sloth Showers

My friend had a baby shower this afternoon, for her second little boy due in six weeks. I think if it ever comes time for me to have a lil babe, this would definitely have to be the nursery themenurserysloth

You can get some sloth wall decals here. Also, if you are looking for a great baby shower present, you can’t go past this adorable sloth mobile from Etsy.slothmobile

Sloth Scrawls

For all those times where you wake up and need to quickly jot down an idea, keep one of these Sylvie Sloth jotter notepads next to your bed! Available on Etsy or Amazon from Night Owl Paper Goods.

Sloth on a Bike

Back in Slothsgivings, Buzzfeed challenged its writers/readers to draw a sloth on a bicycle. Just because. Of course. There were some… interesting… illustrations. (View them all here.)slothbikepic

But I think Dark Cycle Clothing has to take the cake for its incredible Sloth on a Bike on a Tshirt. Wowsa.slothshirtbikeI should point out that I DON’T ride a bike. I do have an exercise bike at home, slightly collecting dust, but one of these days I WILL ride it! However I think (even though it’s proverbially wrong) that I’ve forgotten how to ride a bike. I feel like if I tried, I’d fall. So, bully for you if you know/enjoy riding but unfortunately it’s not for me!!


Sloth Beauty (and Brooch)

Just started watching American Beauty for the first time in my life (don’t worry, it’s paused). Apparently it’s supposed to be good, so we’ll see!

americanslothyAll that keeps coming to my mind is the image of Matty the Sloth:

mattyslothflowerOk, so I know it’s not rose petals, but hey, I’m not gunna say no to this gorgeous little man.

On the topic of love and flowers, I really like this v. cute brooch from Etsy!
