If Nia, five and three quarters going on forty, had her way, she’d be in dressing up gear morning, noon and night. Loving everything from role play costumes to animals, to dressing up as royalty, whether that’s in traditional African clothing or full-on princess gear, she’d probably do all of this while eating sushi, sipping homemade lemonade with mint and crushed ice and pinning on Pinterest. She also has her own distinctive style, preferring to live in a mix of bold dresses, skirts, patterned tights or leggings and colourful trainers and shoes. Obsessed with all things small world, she adores Playmobil, Sylvanian Families, collecting little things of interest and building complex structures out of Lego. She’s also big into her arts and crafts and is eager to add to her burgeoning library of books now that she has her own room.
