The prettiest leather accessories from Hedley Field
We all love the baby and toddler shoes of Amy + Ivor (nowadays you can find these under the umbrella brand Hedley Field), but did you know that Alice (who is the owner and creative soul behind the brand), also makes the most beautiful leather accessories? Alice works with the softest, most beautiful and carefully ...

A pretty, poetic new collection from Louise Misha
Louise Misha needs no introduction here. We've shared our love for this brand a few times over the years (see last year's post and notice how much Marlow has grown! Oh my gosh!). Louise Misha has become well-known and loved for its pretty, bohemian-style clothing for girls and women, and it is now stocked in more ...

Indoi -- slow fashion for women -- maternity and breastfeeding friendly too!
Buying better and buying less for my wardrobe is something I have not yet perfected but am attempting to make a real effort at. But often fast fashion seems easier, especially with a growing bump, unless you can find well-made pieces that evolve and grow with you -- silhouettes that have flexibility and are long-lasting, ...

My favourite swimsuits
I've received four (!!) messages from friends in the last couple weeks asking for swimsuit recommendations -- one friend who lives in LA, one in France, one in the UK, and one here in Byron who asked for my favourite local brands... which is surely proof that swimsuits are on everyone's radar right now, no ...

Holiday gift idea for us mamas -- pretty jewellery from Temple of the Sun
I've said it before a few times, but one of my favourite things about living here in Byron is the amount of creative, entrepreneurial  people who live here. There are so many wonderful independent brands based here in Byron Bay, and just when you think you might know them all, you discover yet another one. ...

A vibrant new Autumn/Winter collection at Louise Misha
Okay, okay... I will admit straight away that these photos are not very Autumn/Wintery with the beach as our backdrop, and with barefoot children as my little models.  : )  But, this is exactly what I love about the Louise Misha brand: the pieces are beautiful and cheerful, despite the season. This is the new ...

Monogrammed coin purses and other accessories from Hedley Field
At the last London ShopUp event in December, I got the kids each their own little leather coin purse, monogrammed with their name on the front. It made for the perfect stocking stuffer for each of them and was one of their favourite Christmas gifts.  Alice from Amy & Ivor has set up a division ...

The new spring/summer collection at Louise Misha launched last week and it is simply beautiful! With stunning, bohemian dresses and accessories for little girls, and a larger-than-ever selection for women, this is my favourite collection yet. There is honestly not a single piece in the women's collection that I wouldn't love to have in my ...

The best re-usable shopping bag, by Flip & Tumble
A few years ago (was it 5, already??), Courtney and I met up in NY with the lovely Annie from Brimful. She brought us a few of the cutest, most thoughtful gifts. One of those gifts was a re-usable Flip & Tumble bag, which she told me was simply the best re-usable shopping bag ever. I ...

Merci Maman -- prettiest hand engraved, personalised necklaces
I don't tend to wear a lot of jewellery, I actually don't even have pierced ears! Every piece of jewellery I do own has some sentimental value. A little trinket bought on a holiday, or a present for a special occasion. Possibly not worth much, but very valuable to me nonetheless. For our 10 year ...

My favourite dress (and it's pregnancy and breastfeeding friendly!)
A couple years ago, at the start of our family travels, I discovered the newly opened Christy Dawn shop in Venice, California.

Notabag, a foldable bag AND backpack in one!
