Fabriko -- a passion for patterns!
Swedish design company Fabriko was started last year by Lisa Erikkson, a Stockholm-based designer and mum. Her patterns are aimed at children but I'm sure they are as attractive for big people as they are for the little ones!

Ada Ada Tights
I don't think there is anything more frustrating in life than waking your child up in the morning, trying to get her to dress in a hurry in order to get her to school on time... and then being told: "I don't like that outfit!" This is not a debate to be had at 7.30 ...

Do you take your kids to see Santa?
Every year of my childhood my mom took us to see Santa. We would drive into the city, head to the big department store and wait for hours in the queue to see Santa. I still remember standing there with all my siblings, waiting eagerly to see him, and my mom telling us all to ...

Sometimes a new children's brand comes along that does something totally new and different. And these days, with all the many children's clothing labels out there, 'new and different' is not easy to do.

School photos
There is nothing that appeals more to my cheesy side than annual school photos. They are always so funny, from the cheesy backgrounds (check out the pastel rainbow concoction Violette and Coco where photographed against) to the startled look that all kids sport. I love the totally un-natural smile, it has become such a classic ...

Last week @courtneyadamo joined the amazing @businesschicks in Brisbane and hundreds of mama entrepreneurs. One big lesson shared for mamas and a great #mondaymotivation : “We just need to cut ourselves some slack. We can’t do everything and we shouldn’t feel guilty if we don’t. We also shouldn’t feel guilty if we ask for help (or have a cleaner or nanny, etc.). Nor should we judge other women if they do! We’ve all had moments when the juggle didn’t work, when the wheels all fell off, and that’s okay. It’s about learning to prioritise the balls you’re juggling and knowing when to say no, and just remembering that we’re all humans juggling the same stuff.” Yes. yes. and yes! Here’s to that reminder. #babyccinokids #inspiration #mamapreneur #reallife #parenting
