Merino Wool Dress from Baby Pinecone
I'm loving the new limited edition red Frill Dress from Baby Pinecone! How festive for the upcoming holiday season... and not to mention, so cosy for the cold winter months ahead. They sent a dress for my daughter and it's such an easy thing to throw on, paired with leggings or tights and dressed up or ...

Olivia!
My daughter is absolutely obsessed with Olivia. She talks about her incessantly, references her all the time, and insists we read Olivia about 200 times a day.  And who can blame her? This little pig is pretty fabulous, and the perfect little storybook 'hero' for a 2-year-old girl. And I just love the adorable black ...

Clarks Desert Boots
We are slowly accepting that winter is knocking on our door over here in Paris. Sandals are finally being packed away (we have resisted till the bitter end) and the winter shoes are coming out. On a recent trip to the UK, I picked up some pairs of Clarks Original Desert Boots for my girls. I ...

Greetings from sunny Antwerp! We are having such silly, girly fun this weekend and thought we would share some photos with you.

Esther's five favourite posts
It's hard to believe it's been four years since we first started Babyccino! SO much has happened in the meantime. Happy things, sad things, beautiful things, silly things... It's been a bit of a challenge at times (and a lot of hard work!) to keep the blog going strong, but we're happy and proud that ...

Perfect Party Dresses from Amaia
Every year around this time I start to think about all the upcoming holiday parties we'll attend... and I start to see a void in my kids' wardrobes for dressier clothes. For some reason, I have a difficult time finding beautiful, timeless-yet-modern children's clothing suitable for fancier occasions. The answer, I've discovered, is Amaia. Not ...

Our 4th Birthday!
Gosh, time flies! Can you believe we have been blogging for exactly four years this week?! It's a funny thing because in some ways it's hard to believe four years have passed so quickly... but then on the other hand it's almost impossible to think about life pre-Babyccino Kids (at least for us)! To celebrate ...

La marinière
If you were to draw a caricature  of a French man, you would very likely draw a guy on a bicycle with a baguette under his arm, a beret on his head, a healthy looking mustache and a blue and white striped T-shirt. Not all of it would be a cliché: the blue and white ...

A Zeal of Zebras

Such a funny one!  A Zeal of Zebras is a new book created by Woop Studios showcasing their A to Z of collective ...

Children's Beds
I am in the market for a new children's bed, as I am trying to de-clutter and re-organise the children's room. As usual, there are so many amazing beds available that it is almost impossible to choose one! If left to my own devices, I would fill up a whole dormitory... Anyway, I wanted to ...

Win a Minui Highchair from Blue Daisy!
I've seen and used the HandySitt portable seat before -- you often see it in restaurants here in London. But I had no idea that it is a part of a bigger highchair system. Combined, the Minui HandySitt Chair and portable seat form a freestanding high chair. When detached, the chair is a seat for ...

Top Ten Hoodies
How super cute is this reversible wolf/bear hooded jumper? Absolutely adorable!

James and the Giant Peach
Just like Courtney and her boys, my girls and I have graduated to a new type of bed time story. Longer format books are slowly replacing shorter, illustrated books (although I'm sure a few firm favourites will remain). We are now reading chapter books! One of our recent reads was James and the Giant Peach by Roald ...

TroiZenfants
With three children I'm a bit biassed when it comes to the gorgeous French brand TroiZenfants (Trois Enfants meaning Three Children). I'm loving the beautiful fabrics, and of course, the signature folds and pleats (check out these cute shorts)! The quality and detailing of the fabrics is really amazing.

So simple: Scoot 'n Pull
As always -- simple ideas are best. All of us, mummies of Microscooter-users, know that Microscooters can be tiring, and pushing a 2-year-old home on his/her scooter can result in a really sore back (and not to mention, a foul mood)! Also, the scooter doesn't really fit in the buggy, does it? Now, with this ...

Our friend, Al MacCuish’s wonderful children’s book, The Bee Who Spoke is now available in paperback as of today! It is a beautifully illustrated story of a girl named Belle and her adventures in the French countryside, where she meets a talking bee and is introduced to the wonders of nature.

Wild Garlic, or Ramson, is abundant in early Spring. We have a simple pesto recipe in our bio which is great with pasta, on fish, or with a cheese toastie! And if you are wondering what’s so good about wild garlic, well, it’s great for you! It has antibacterial, antibiotic, antiseptic properties so it makes sense to pack as much into your diet as you can. It reduces blood pressure, heart disease and the risk of stroke. It’s also fun to forage. Recipe from @laraoflondon
