Creating a Rosemood custom photo book -- documenting our summer travels
Not so long ago I spent an evening on a lagoon beach in Galicia. I was eating sardines straight from the tin with crusty pieces of bread. The last sunny rays of the day were warming my back as I was lazily watching my husband navigate his SUPboard in the shallow waters in front of me, ...

Discussion -- What Subscription/Delivery Services do you use?
I've always loved drawing inspiration and reading discussions on this platform, whether small or more complex parenting topics. So I wanted to pop in here and quickly ask a very profound question; what subscription-based delivery services does your family use that you would recommend? Ha! Serious question. I'm curious if there are any subscription-based services out ...

Revisiting summer memories with photo books, and strategies for moving photos from digital to print
I'm now five and half years into parenthood and I still haven't developed a consistent method for archiving and printing photos...please tell me I'm not the only one! I've had stretches where I ordered some prints monthly and I've made photo books after having nice family photos taken, but I'm still searching for a method ...

My new project: an e-course and Instagram community for parents
Guys, I'm really excited to share a new personal project I've been working on! After two years of mushy baby brain (no joke -- I honestly thought my brain might never work properly again!), I'm excited to be back in entrepreneurial shoes -- with fresh ideas and enthusiasm. Back in February, just before Wilkie's 2nd ...

Documenting our trip around the world with Bob Books photobooks
It is no secret I am a big fan of photobooks. I have photobooks for each of my children's first years of life. I also have photobooks of favourite holidays and summer vacations from the past twelve years. One of our favourites is our '100 Days Away' photo book from our big trip to Australia ...

Maud Fontein's Happy Holidays Shoot, back at the London ShopUp!
It's become a bit of a tradition: having your kids' Christmas photos taken at the London ShopUp by Maud Fontein. I always love checking on her during the event, to watch all of those adorable kiddos (and parents of course) having such fun in front of her camera. Maud is magical with kids, she just ...

Skiing with kids, planning made easy with Powder Byrne
Skiing played a big role in my upbringing -- I was so lucky to spend one wintery week in the mountains of Austria each year. I loved this vacation -- being outside and active all day, hitting the slopes from early in the morning 'til the last lifts closed. For the past few years, Tamar ...

A Christmas Box of YAY! from ShortStitch
We have written about the great convenience of the ShortStich private shopping service before. The idea is that you fill out the (very straightforward) questionnaire to indicate what sort of occasion or activity your child needs clothes for (for example school, sports, or party), and a personal stylist will put together a box of clothes, taking into account ...

Worm London -- they do flowers AND books
It's no secret I love books, and I love flowers just as much. So when I came across a gifting service which perfectly mixes the two, then it was a given I was going to fall for them! Worm London intrigued me right from their beginning. I found them on IG as I noticed something ...

The children's travel journals turned into a book with Doodle Nest!
As I've mentioned before, each of our children kept a journal during our travels this year. They wrote in their journals at least once or twice a week, documenting each country and noting down memorable moments from each place we visited. Their journals are filled with notes, writings, doodles, drawings, small souvenirs and mementos from ...

ShortStitch, personal shopping -- also for boys!
Do you remember the personal shopping service, ShortStitch, that we tested for Ava last year? I loved the easy process, the excitement of receiving the box full of gorgeous outfits, and was so happily surprised by the awesome suggestions Darina had put together (some of them I would have never thought of myself -- and ...

Katrina Campbell Photography
A few weeks ago we spent a lovely Sunday morning with the talented photographer Katrina Campbell, who came from London for the day to photograph our family (and to spend some time in our lovely city, of course). Katrina told me beforehand not to worry too much about a tidy house, perfectly posing children, well, not to ...

Thoughtful and beautiful gift boxes from The London Gifting Studio
To give, but mostly to receive a gift that was chosen with care, with love, with attention to detail, with just that extra something, is so, so special. A gift that has meaning, a purpose, that is (and becomes) an experience and a memory -- those kind of gifts are the best ones. But which busy parent has the ...

Maud Fontein's Happy Holiday Shoot, again at the ShopUp!
It's becoming a little ritual, my yearly trip to Maud Fontein's studio with my four children. It's always a bit chaotic, because it needs to be done quickly, in between school pick-up and tennis training. Maud is great at making the kids feel at ease though and always captures them looking so cute, making use of clever ...

Making date night easy with Childcare.co.uk

Bloom & Wild, flowers through the letterbox!
My husband has given me flowers on the fourth of each month since our first kiss on 4th Feb, 2002. (So sweet, right?!) Over thirteen years of flowers later, I still find myself charmed when I receive them. Their fragile nature, and purely aesthetic function make flowers such a special, and luxurious gift. Given my ...

Shortstitch, a personal shopping service
Personal shopping -- it sounds expensive and luxurious, doesn't it? It makes me think of those slightly hidden areas on the top floors of high-end department stores. Luxurious... and definitely mysterious. But fact is: parents are busy. Very busy. Although we love (virtual) shopping and browsing, we don't always find the time to scout the high streets (or ...
