My name is Lily-Sue, but my mummy calls me Munchkin (or 'Munch' for short!) I am 8 years old, and this is where my mummy will help me write all about all the fun things we do together. I hope you enjoy reading about the adventures of my mummy and me, Munchkin, with the occasional appearance from the siblings - Beastie and Plumlet.

River Island teams with LolliBop!

Go Customise Crazy with River Island's Design Den!

Munch loves fashion. She really, really does. She loves to wear nice clothes, and every day she will request that she wears something pretty. Ok, so 'pretty' will often involve wearing tutus, princess dresses and tiaras, but for reasons of practicality, a nice dress or skirt and top ensemble will usually be sufficient! As long as it is pink or purple!

However, her love of clothes doesn't stop at wanting to strut around in perfect pairings of girly dresses and shoes, or at dressing her dolls in sparkles and pearls. She also likes to combine her passion for lovely clothes with her love of colour and drawing and is often found doodling pictures of herself, and me, in gorgeous fantasy outfits! And some of them are pretty unique, let me tell you! She has even gone as far as saying that after big school, she will go to big big school to be better at drawing, and then she will go to big big big school and learn how to draw real dresses. Do I have a budding Fashion Designer here ...? Maybe. But she also wants to be a Ballerina, a Chef, a Footballer and to work in Toys R Us when she is older, so she may be a little short on spare time!

When I told her that she will have the chance to design and make some real clothing at LolliBop this year, she was very excited! I went on to explain ...

River Island is pleased to announce that they are the official fashion partner for this year's LolliBop Festival, taking place at Hatfield House from 15th-17th August. The three day event is the UK's only festival where all the entertainment is for children!

Due to the huge success last year, River Island is hosting the fun and fashionable 'Design Den' for the second time round where festival goers will have the chance to transform into designers for the day and customise their very own shirt!

How does it work?

The Design Den will host craft stations for various age groups and the little ones have an allocated time slot to create their masterpiece! Afterwards, they can take to the River Island runway to strike a pose and show off their designs on the catwalk.

The youngsters need to make sure they have those cheeky grins at the ready as each child will receive a photo of the fabulous moment to take home too.

Visitors will also be able to shop the latest kidswear and accessories range from the River Island Summer collection at an exclusive pop up shop!

The River Island Baby and Kidswear range for ages 0-12 years is available at www.riverisland.com and in selected stores both in the UK and internationally.

There really is so much to see at The LolliBop Festival, and regrettably we didn't make it to the River Island Design Den last year, but we will be making it a priority this year! She loves to design, she loves to wear and she loves to pose, so I know she is going to love River Island's Design Den!
