New video: a French braid tutorial
Our newest video is now up on our YouTube Channel! We figured it was easier to show you how to French braid in a video rather than in photos, so here's our first video hair tutorial. We shot this video a couple months ago when I was in Amsterdam visiting Esther, and sweet little Ava ...

In my hand luggage
I have been on the road so often lately that my suitcase is just sitting open on the floor and gets emptied and refilled again on a regular basis. I also never have the patience for waiting for suitcases at airports, so I have been honing my talents of traveling not only with a capsule wardrobe ...

Hair style: the low flip ponytail
This hair tutorial is extremely easy. Just brush your child's hair, and make a low ponytail using an elastic band. Pull back the elastic band slightly to make room. Then, separate the hair approximately in the middle, creating a gap. Then, flip the hair over and pull through the gap. Voila! Such an easy hairstyle, ...

Hair style: a messy top-knot
This hairstyle is one of my favourites for Sara -- I think it reflects her style really well (plus, it suits her face). It's easy, but the technique is a bit tricky to explain. I'll do my best, and I think the photos help! Have an elastic band handy. First, brush the hair up high (high!) ...

Hair style: messy side buns
This hairstyle is so sweet, and also a fast one once you get the hang of the technique. I like the crazy, messy look! Have two elastic bands handy. Brush and part the hair. A messy parting is fine! Form a side pony tail with your left hand. With the other hand, pull the tail ...

Hair style: double pinned-up braids
This is a hairstyle that I remember from my early childhood. My mum would pin up my braids for festive days, and I would feel so, so special the entire day. (Again, my friend Maud has taken all of the photos.) I started with Julie's hair. Julie is Maud's daughter and Ava's little friend, you might ...

Hair style: twisties
Twisties (or side buns) have been my super-quick hairdo solution for my girls since Sara started to have hair long enough to work with (and that took years). They're just so quick and easy and always look cute, even when they're completely crooked (I actually like them better that way). They're so quick and easy to ...

Klorane Dry Shampoo
I have been travelling a lot lately in planes, trains and automobiles... which has been a lot of fun, but the one thing that has suffered a little bit is my hair. Waking up in the early hours and getting my girls ready and out of the door to catch a train does not leave ...

Original Sprout Hair Care for Kids
One of my twin daughters has stick-straight blond hair while the other is a brunette with a thick mane of curly ringlets.  During the morning routine the blond is pretty easy -- a quick comb through and she is good to go.  The curly brunette however, takes a little more work to get camera ready ...

What I can't leave the house without ...
Anyone who knows me will find it somewhat hysterical that I would be writing about my favourite 'beauty' product.  I'm one of those girls who considers mascara and lip-balm "dolling myself up".  I'm pretty useless in that whole arena and since having kids even worse. The only 'area' that I did try and spend a ...

Until the twentieth century, many women spent most of their adult years pregnant. Despite this, pregnancies are seldom apparent in surviving portraits. 🤰 We live in a time where we can celebrate the pregnant body, not conceal it. Where society (as a general rule) is not trying to ignore it. Or even fear it. And, where fashion is designed specifically to embrace and proudly show off the pregnant bump. But most importantly, where the medical support for pregnant women — and the likelihood of a healthy birth — is possible. Today’s blog post: Portraying Pregnancy from Holbein to Social Media is inspired by a London exhibition at @foundlingmuseum that @laraoflondon went to the opening of.

This homemade bath soak would be the loveliest Valentine’s gift to make for grandmothers, aunts, teachers, or friends! Ingredients : 1 cup Epsom Salt 1 cup Pink Himalayan Sea Salt 1/2 cup Rose Petals, torn into smaller pieces after measuring 1/4 cup Dried Lavender lavender essential oil, optional, but I prefer it without when using with my children’s baths Lidded jars to gift it in Lavender is excellent for aching muscles, relaxation, and stress relief. Its’ powerful as well for antioxidant, antimicrobial, sedative, calming and anti-depressive properties. So soak away! Rose petals are often the image of luxury and self love. But it can actually enhance your skin and mood. Rosewater soothes irritated skin, brightens your complexion and tightens pores for a smooth appearance. Epsom Salt in water breaks down into magnesium and sulfate. When you soak in an Epsom salt bath, these get into your body through your skin, helping to relax muscles and loosen stiff joints. Himalayan Pink Salt is so very pretty! But it also helps to relax, de-stress, detoxify your body. And it helps you to sleep like a baby. And what mama or friend doesn’t want to do that! Enjoy. #babyccinokids #homemadevalentines
