KISS….. I Wanna Rock n Roll All Nite
April 26th, 2012
If you grew up in the 70s and 80s then you will know who i am talking about.
KISS is an American rock band that formed in 1973 and were well known for its members face paint and flamboyant outfits. The original line up consisted of Paul Stanley, Gene Simmons, Ace Frehley and Peter Criss. With their makeup and costumes, they took on the persona’s of comic book-style characters: Starchild (Stanley), The Demon (Simmons), Spaceman or Space Ace (Frehley) and Catman (Criss).
With a string of hits from albums such as ‘KISS’ ‘Destroyer’ and ‘Lick It Up’ its no wonder us parents want to dress our kids in funky threads from the rock bands we grew up listening too.
With that in mind we now stock a range of cool threads for kids from the Sourpuss range for lovers of KISS including the KISS Destroyer tee, KISS socks, KISS Demon Child Tee and my favourite, the I Wanna Rock n Roll All Nite onesie.

Gemellini is TWINtastic!
April 20th, 2012
Last weekend i had the pleasure of meeting a beautiful family for a photo shoot to showcase our new brand Gemellini.
Gemellini seeks to serve the growing twin market with innovative fashion solutions for everyday kid life. The fabrics are soft, durable, and washable. The designs are trendy and chic with an edgy rock n roll feel. The concepts capture the way twins are the same, yet different, part of each other and yet completely individual. With this in mind we had to find a set of twins to be the face of Gemellini.
This is where Claudia and Claire stepped in and boy did they do an awesome job. It was funny watching the way these girls interacted. It was just so natural for them to be holding hands.
The other great thing to come out of this photo shoot, besides the clothing was the photographer. Ian and i have been friends since high school so it was a great chance for us to work together. I think the pictures look awesome! The girls did a fantastic job and the clothing speaks for itself.
Available exclusively at A Little Bit of Cheek this range of rockin’ tees and onesies have been designed with twins in mind. Available in four designs; Pink Rhythm and Beats, Double Drum, Guitar Babes and Grey Rhythm and Beats. They are sold in a gift set and the tees compliment each other. Making them a great gift for twins from newborn to size 4.
