The Little Square Gallery -- sweet snapshots in a cool frame
I'm not very organised when it comes to using my digital photos -- I just take a photo, post it to Instagram, and then it disappears in a virtual cloud somewhere. Actually, it wasn't very different back when I took analog photos -- instead of a virtual cloud, photos would disappear in a dusty box, waiting to be organised ...

Vanessa Berberian, London photographer
Remember last week when I told you about our little family photo session in the park with Vanessa Berberian?

If you’re looking for something a little bit different to try over the holidays then this is a great activity.️ Botanical hammer printing is a fun way to capture the colours of a season, it’s super easy, not to mention noisy! It scores 10/10 with kids though I doubt neighbours rate it quite as highly. 🤣 Great for cards, cushion covers, wall art, and more!

Jamberry is the sweetest of board books. It’s about a young boy and a bear who merrily play through the land of berries. The characters sit in a canoe of blueberries with their hats bursting of berries and they lay in a meadow of strawberries with dancing lambs and ponies.

To shave or not to shave? Makeup free and natural or fight those sign of age, avoid grey hair, etc? We received lovely responses from readers yesterday who appreciated seeing makeup-free Emilie and Esther make-up on holiday. It reminded us of Courtney’s article on pampering pressures on social media. And arm hair! How do you feel about grooming and pampering as a mama, and what lessons is it teaching your kids? 🤷‍️ One reader commented : “We really do make life harder for ourselves: the same people telling us to be happy with ourselves, love ourselves, accept ourselves etc are the same people telling us in the next breath (or page of a magazine, or showing us on the red carpet) to shave everything/dye our hair/wear a push-up bra/undergo surgery to stop the ageing process... I tell my kids all the time – be your own person. It’s fine to be inspired by, covet, try or buy something you’ve seen on someone else, but ultimately YOU have to shine through too and what makes you YOU is going to be very different to the next person, so embrace it. Hair (or no hair!) and all.” What are your thoughts? #babyccinokids
