Soeur
The concept of being chic starts early in Paris. As you can imagine even little girls have an innate sense of style, so their older sisters are off the chart! Luckily enough there is now a shop just catering to the 10-14 bracket. Soeur was opened by two sisters, one, the co-founder of Bonton and ...

La Mercerie Parisienne
One of my favourite shops in Paris is not a shoe shop or a fancy food shop (though there are many). It is actually a beautiful, little haberdashery shop in the Marais: L'Entrée des Fournisseurs is full of ribbons, buttons, fabrics and wool, just like in the good old days. It also stocks some of my ...

Brocantes Popincourt
Just around the corner from me is a little collection of about 8-10 little brocantes shops which, surprisingly, not that many people know about... and they are fabulous.

Whidbey Island is a beautiful and untouched destination in the US Pacific Northwest. It is made up of several small quaint towns and gorgeous historic nature reserve — there are lots of hikes, views, parks, beaches, and more to explore. Addie says: ‘Perhaps one of the best overall things about being on Whidbey was just that — being on the island and enjoying its natural state and sharing that with my family. The pastel-colored stones collected at the beaches, the deer that aren’t scared of humans at all and just mosey about the island, the cherry trees, the seal pups... It was so great just to be there!’ If you are a family who loves nature and adventure and enjoys exploring the lesser-traveled destinations, you can find @addieladner ‘s great tips (and more dreamy photos! ) over on our blog. It sounds like the perfect getaway to us!! #babyccinokids #babyccinotravels #whidbeyisland #familytravel
