One-on-One time with kids
February 18, 2013
This weekend Violette was invited for a sleep over so Coco and I were all alone. We ran some errands, grabbed a cup of tea together, she had a friend over, we talked a bit about school and life, we then did some crafting and went out for some food. Nothing extraordinary... but at some point ...

Anja Schwerbrock 'Treehouse' collection
February 15, 2013
Fashion designer Anja Schwerbrock is originally from Germany, and after spending some years in Japan (designing for Comme des Garçons!) she moved to Antwerp with her Danish husband to established her own fashion label. Quite an international affair! I loved meeting Anja over the weekend when I was in Antwerp. She's such a fun, clever and pretty ...

The onesie trick
February 7, 2013
It was only when I had my third baby (Ava) and was struggling with one of those typical nappy explosions, that someone shared with me a little secret. Something so simple, I couldn't believe I'd never been told this before or that I never thought of this myself. As all new mothers of all new ...

Pregnancy Yoga with Nadia
February 4, 2013
I had never done yoga before... until I found myself at 32 weeks pregnant with a breech baby. A good friend (and fellow pregnant mama) recommended I try yoga, both for the physical benefit as well as to calm my mind and find a sense of peace with my pregnancy and baby.  I figured I ...

February 1, 2013
One of the exciting new discoveries we made at Playtime last weekend, is the Parisian jewellery brand Titlee (for adults) and Little Titlee (for kids).

Wool Fabrique
January 30, 2013
Toward the very end of our day at Playtime, as we were frantically running out of the building to catch our taxi (late, as usual!), we stumbled upon the Wool Fabrique stand... and we literally stopped in our tracks! The taxi could wait -- these gorgeous goodies were too good not to check out. Wool ...

Real Love
January 29, 2013
There are a thousand great things about being a mom, but one of the best things can be the total undulated love you get from small children. I have heard the rumours it changes for a couple of years when they get older but I am still privy to my kids thinking I rock. Now, ...

Welcome sweet Francesca!
December 8, 2012
Right around the time Elizabeth started contributing to Babyccino, she became pregnant with baby number two. She and I quickly discovered that we were both pregnant and due on the same day! It was so fun for me to share a due date with someone, and to bond over similar pregnancy milestones together (morning sickness, ...

38 weeks pregnant and thankful for Koka Mama
October 19, 2012
I have gotten to the point in my pregnancy where the only thing I can comfortably wear are leggings. (I had a funny conversation with my 7-year-old the other day where he asked me why I always take him to school in my 'pyjamas'. I told him they weren't my pyjamas, they were 'leggings' and ...

On the brink of giving birth we asked our super talented photographer friend Sue Cowell to shoot some photos of pregnant me with my family. It is, after all, my last pregnancy! I really like the outcome of the shoot -- I love how natural Sue's style is, the moments she captures are just full of ...

Something old, something new...
October 10, 2012
The bed for baby is ready! Set up in our bedroom, waiting, waiting... The one very special thing about this little bed is the sheet that was embroidered by my late grandmother in the 1940s of last century, for the birth of my mother (her oldest daughter). It's 70 years old! I love that little ...

New Apron

I have decided that it is time for me to grow up and accept a wisdom of generations and generations of men and women: it makes sense to wear an apron when cooking. It actually makes sense to wear an apron when cooking, cleaning and crafting. In fact, an apron is a great idea! The ...

Choosing baby names
September 29, 2012
I am having the most difficult time choosing a name for our baby! I think it is especially difficult when you don't know your baby's gender... maybe because you can't really visualise your baby, or maybe it's just because you don't know what your baby is, so you don't become too attached to either the ...

September 21, 2012
A few weeks ago, Esther and I and our oldest girls were in the South of France visiting a local market. At one of the market stands, some great, cheesy Euro 80's pop music was blaring out of a little stereo. Of course, we launched straight into some rather impressive dance moves (if I may ...
