Quality People
I am very impressed by the new label Quality People and their cute and super soft T-shirt and tops for children. The label was started by Kellie, an LA fashion designer who relocated to Paris. After having kids she decided to rethink her approch toward fashion and tried to produce clothes that make a difference. She ...

The Lunchbox
Unlike the UK and France, where I've been told kids get a warm and nutritious lunch at school, here in the Netherlands we send our children to school with the traditional lunchbox. Every morning I find myself in the kitchen preparing sandwiches for Pim and Sara, with some cold sides like fruit, cheese or vegetables ...

Tiny People, Byron Bay
If only my daughter still let me dress her!  Isn't this little jumpsuit totally gorgeous? It is by sweet Aussie brand fabric from a shop called TinyPeople .  Tiny People is in the eclectic town of Byron Bay on the far north coast of NSW.  Byron Bay is quite a hippie little town. Think 'bohemian cool' ... locals ...

Date Reminder Calendar from Flora Douville
I'm usually so good at remembering birthdays and other important dates, but lately I've been slipping! (Does 'baby brain' ever go away? I hope so!) Anyway, I just bought myself this Date Reminder Calendar by French artist, Flora Douville, and I'm really hoping it will help. Isn't it beautiful? I'm going to hang this in ...

A guide to staying warm
When I was about 25, I suddenly had a big revelation: I was standing at a bus stop in London on a very cold winter's day and realised that maybe for the first time ever I was warm -- I was actually wearing sensible clothing! It was a big milestone in my journey to becoming ...

Last Minute Christmas Craft -- wall panels
These wall panels were quickly made with my kids -- just using pieces of an old sheet, some fabric scraps and Fabric Mod Podge. I did the cutting for my 3-year old, but my 5-year-old was able to do everything herself! After drying we glued the sheet around a piece of cardboard and voila, some stylish ...

Super skinny jeans...
My daughter inherited my long and skinny legs. Now, I understand that long and skinny legs shouldn't be complained about, but most women know that there's a downside to everything (am I not right, curvy girls?). Well, the downside to having long and skinny legs is that it's very hard to find long and skinny ...

Jamie at Winter Wonderland
As children are starting to break up from nurseries, kindergartens and schools for the Christmas holidays, a typical London holiday attraction to visit is Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park. We went last weekend and whilst crazy busy I was really impressed with the fairground -- lots of really beautiful old-fashioned fairground rides, mixed up with ...

Petit Pan Pyjamas
I'm loving these pyjamas I recently spotted in the office of Amsterdam-based web boutique Broer&Zus. How fun are those fabrics? They're by Petit Pan, and they're wonderfully priced considering the quality. Broer&Zus have more lovely items from Petit Pan in their shop -- have a look... xxx Esther

Tapikid Playmat by Deuz
Don't these Tapikid Playmats just look like instant fun? I got one for my kids and they immediately brought out their collection of trains and cars and drove them around the 'city' all afternoon. The playmats are big (49 x 49 inches) and are made from a heavyweight organic canvas. The colourful graphics are printed ...

Cape by Deluna Kids
My girls love to dress up so much that if they get a chance they will play 'dress-up' before actually getting dressed in the morning. Fun as it may be, most of the dress-up clothes they have are not really very practical for everyday use. This is one of the reasons my eldest daugther, Coco, ...

Waddler
Just after the birth of their first baby, Philip and his wife Marina waved bye-bye to London and moved to South America so their son "spent his first years picking avocadoes in a tropical garden, riding bareback with gauchos and dining on the Andean speciality: roast guinea pig. He saw the forests come alive with ...

Tamar Mogendorff
This moose head (it is a moose, isn't it?) I am desperate to acquire. Well...desperately hoping to acquire that is as I haven't yet investigated matters of cost. I think it will look gorgeous on the blank wall above my son's bed (provided it doesn't inspire nightmares, mind you). New York-based, Israeli-born Tamar Mogendorff is the mega-talented artist behind this and ...

Lille Barn Hat, Scarf and Mittens
I was talking to a Swedish person the other day and she told me that 'there is no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing'... meaning if you want to survive the cold, just dress for it. I'm taking this advice literally this year, which is why you'll find me constantly wearing my wool ...

Titlee Jewelry
I think there are two schools of thought regarding jewelry -- mine and my daughters'. The girls believe in plastic, volume and bling, while I have a bit more of a subtle approach to it -- I like little understated pendents and bracelets. I recently was given a lovely little bracelet by Titlee and wear ...

Two-Tone Tights
Last week I went to American Apparel to seek out these two-tone tights (pictured above) which I noticed cropping up in the pre-school scene, and I am LOVING their kids collection.  It's all '70s an '80s inspired (but in a good way).  Not only did I pick up a few of these two tone tights ...

My two favourite breakfast meals are pancakes and oatmeal. So imagine how excited I got by the prospect of Oatmeal Pancakes!! My sister first made them for us a few months ago, and they were by far the best pancakes I've ever eaten in my life. They are slightly heartier, moister, more complex than regular ...

A Christmas Pink Martini
My husband and I have uber-opposite music tastes -- it is one of the subjects we get really annoyed with one another about.  However for many years now, one of the Albums we both agree is brilliant is Pink Martini's Sympathique. If you don't know Pink Martini -- they are a Portland-based group who do ...

Mudslinger Hoodie
Living in Paris I do have the tendency to put my girls in dresses, Mary Janes and hairbands. After all: when in Rome do like the Romans. But sometimes it is just nice to put them in jeans, a hoodie and some trainers and go out to the park. I actually think my girls play ...

Do you have stick obsessed children? Esther celebrated these collected treasures and created a whole birthday party around the theme! And we love this quote from @guardian : ‘And thus, sticks. For I have learned that boys like, nay love, sticks. But a stick to a boy is far, far more than an inanimate object. A stick is a toy, a weapon, a friend and a foe. A stick is adventure, possibilities, destruction and danger. A stick is, in the right time and place – or even better, in the wrong – everything.’ More in the link! #babyccinokids #babyccinocrafts #stickcollector #sticks

Author Joseph Coelho has perfectly captured the sensitivity of talking about death and dying to very young children through his new book, If All The World Were. A book which is lyrical, gentle, softly spoken, and helpful at the saddest times in a family’s life. @quartokids #babyccinoreads #babyccinokids

There are more than a million words in the English language. We remember the most common term and associate more complex or less frequent words with that. So the clever people from @mrswordsmithofficial have developed cards linking word groups together. To make this memorable to children, they developed learning tools designed by comic book illustrators. Super fun and memorable, the designs are instantly associated to the word. So clever!
