Really?  

I occasionally feel like my kids are a little over indulged.  I've got nothing to worry about it seems.

i dont know if its spoilt or a marketing tactic - by mentioning all these brands & increasing traffic to her blog, it wont take long before other brands & sites start sponsoring and sending her free clothes & items to mention on her blog .

I think an item or two for a paragraph worth of writing is an excellent way of grabbing freebies & sometimes cash as well.

Gorgeous little girl.  I thought it was cute at first, parents just wanting to show off their baby, but it seems to be a commercial website with all the links to where the little girl gets all her designer clothes and other products.

What a strange blog!  Badly written and badly styled. It is just very thinly concealed advertising which didn't even vaguely tempt me.

Her mother's a PR chick. I'm fairly sure she gave birth to a marketing opportunity rather than a baby.

Think I might start a blog with my son wearing his Best and Less brand gear. Maybe they will send me some freebies.

Yes I suppose she's spoilt rotten but more than that I just feel so embarrassed. The whole thing is so fake and full of name-dropping. It just makes me cringe!!

That child can not possibly grow up into a lovely teenager or pleasant young woman.

It's a bit 'suri cruise's burn book' but less amusing.
A bit off-putting actually

Oh that's funny! I pity the poor 14 year old who one days finds these pictures of herself accompanied by the poorly written look at moi look at moi text with poor punctuation.

What's sadder is the child is rarely smiling. In pages and pages of pictures and there's only a handful where the child looks happy.

Badly written for a PR chick. I read an article about them this morning in the SMH....all I really remembered was the private jet to hamilton island and the expensive boat....and the taste in baby clothes to be NMS.

According to SMH online, Pixie's glam life may not last long with Daddy accused of serious insider trading.

Is it wrong to admit I liked the look of that pool?

About the baby or the label dropping... meh....

ETA? Insider trading charges?! Lawd, I hope they keep their pool *crosses fingers*

Isn't this the little girl whose dad has been charged with insider trading?

How judgemental and wrong can you get?

Or is it just jealousy.

Of course she can still grow up into a lovely teenager and pleasant young woman.  glare.gif

I think it is more about advertising for Mum then anything else.

Pity the child.

To me "reality TV aspirant" says it all.

I don't think the child is spoiled, she's just a little baby.

The blog is weird and creepy and embarrassing though. Mum needs to get a life I think. Its all name and brand dropping with the child as an excuse.

Naff blog about a label lifestyle.  I couldn't bear to live like that but you know, whatever floats their boat.

I thought the same thing, I love Suri's burn book which is very well written and witty but this badly written with more pomposity than wit.

Did you see the Ferrari in the garage (while Pixie has her pink plastic car).

I was saddened to see the child turned forward facing in her car seat well before she had to be sad.gif

Agree, they have a very nice pool!
