We're nearing the end of summer... and we will miss it! Those juicy watermelons, the long days on the beach and the perfect picnics in the park. But, drinking hot chocolate after a long walk in the forest, and curling up cosy with the kids in front of the fireplace also has its charm! Seeing ...

Irene from one of our favourite blogs Bloesem and Bloesem Kids recently shared the new Bloesem Wear jewellery collection on her site, and I've been drooling over them from the start.

Not just a towel...
May 16, 2013
Whenever we go on a beach holiday, I like to pack turkish towels instead of normal beach towels because they take up less space in your suitcase, they're less heavy when wet after a long day at the beach, they dry more quickly... and they're super cute! Yesterday I was in the Conran Shop with ...

Tie-dye!
April 23, 2013

Aqua Lamb Boots
January 17, 2013
Listen, I am never going to pretend that sheepskin boots are sexy. They never were and they never will be, but sometimes comfort does rule over style (or sexiness for that matter). Personally, knowing that I have a pair of sheepskin boots ready to slip into for the school run, makes me a little bit happier ...
