La Coqueta, a new collection and a new London shop!!
We have been working with La Coqueta since they first opened their shop in the leafy neighbourhood of London's Hampstead.

I still remember ...

A wonderful selection of baby gifts from Un Elefantino a Pois
I am still trying to figure out what to wear and how to dress the kids in Australian 'winter time'. While the nights and mornings can be chilly, by midday we are shedding the woollen layers we've put on over our summery clothes. It seems I always have a bonnet, jumper and booties in my ...

SEWING AND KNITTING
Wiksten Patterns
I absolutely love to sew. I love the process itself and also the fact I have created something for my children. I wish and sometimes even dare to dream about times I’ll have just a few more hours all to myself so I can do it more. In the meantime I’m pilling up all the ...

Five questions with Julie Kohlhoff from macarons
I remember being introduced to macarons 5 years ago when they first presented their collection at the local children's fashion fair here in Amsterdam. Julie and Veit, joined by their baby girl and Veit's mother, were presenting a different, interesting collection that really stood out -- with amazing double-knit fabrics they had developed themselves and intriguing, cool ...

We drink hot chocolate, throw ...

Sweet baby Orla (in cosy knits from Nieva)
Remember I posted about our new Babyccino baby? Team member Helen gave birth to Orla 3 months ago, and she's just the most adorable baby. Helen brought her over the other day (we Babyccino girls tend to work with our babies in tow), and I had so much fun with that little lady. And, I'm proud to say that ...

La Coqueta, timeless Spanish clothing with a modern twist
Just looking at the beautiful new A/W collection at La Coqueta makes me want to give my children's wardrobe a bit of an overhaul -- to chuck out their denim jeans with holes in the knees, their tatty tees, and their old tired hoodies... and replace them with tailored, timeless Spanish pieces.

Today’s new post from Lara “Seek is the one and only app that our (young) children use. It started in lockdown over the Spring, as things sprung to life, and our children would ask us ‘what’s that?’ So my husband found the answer, which was for all of us to learn more from the world of amazing digital technology by using a free app (and find out more about the amazing world!). We think it is so outstanding actually and have told so many friends and family members to use it too, because it teaches them about the world and nature! I should quickly add that this is not a sponsored post! It is just a great tip I wanted to share.” And we love this thought... “You don’t have to travel far to find weird and beautiful wildlife. Your garden, local park, street tree, window box or the verge alongside a local footpath are rich ecosystems filled with species… you’ll be able to identify any living thing in your patch – plants, flowers, insects, fungi, birds and animals. It’s like having a naturalist in your pocket! When you ID a species you’ll be able to find out all about it, and see how common or rare it is for your area and the time of year.” More about the app in our bio link. But tell us, are you using any interesting educational apps for nature or science? ps And stay tuned for more about her holiday on a lighthouse island in @laraoflondon ‘s post next week! #babyccinokids #babyccinotips #babyccinotravels #seek

Autumn Equinox — a note from Esther... “I was talking to Lara earlier today, and she was reminding me of the start of Autumn happening today. Autumn! Today, the bright daylight hours and the dark nightly hours are of equal length. From now on, the days will get shorter, the nights will get longer… until the longest night, Winter Solstice (taking place on December 21st) will mark the beginning of the Winter season. Today is Autumn Equinox: the night and the day are in perfect balance. It marks the moment of the sun entering Libra (my star sign!), bringing harmony and stability, and which is ruled by Venus, the planet of love and beauty. All good things, and definitely things we need in these uncertain, difficult and turbulent times. Autumn is when the air starts to feel crisper and smell muddier, when the colours of nature are intensifying before they change colour, when the light is low and magical, when the days get wetter and the weather gets windier. It is the time to harvest apples and nuts and pumpkins, to make pies and soups and stews and to cosy up the house with rugs, pillows and blankets. Fall is so cosy! To celebrate this First Day of Autumn, I thought it would be nice to make a list of all the little things, family traditions and crafts we love doing in fall. Most we have posted about before, but there are some new ideas and things I want to try as well. Going through old posts and getting this list together has been so inspiring — yes, we are entering the darker and colder months, but there is so much to do and make, and many of these activities are super simple and made with whatever nature supplies us with. Fall truly is fabulous!” xx Esther Enjoy @estherbabyccino fifteen favourite fall activities to get inspired, link in bio. #babyccinokids #babyccinotips #autumnequinox @maudfontein 🧡

Vegetable bolognese anyone? This ragu is seriously, seriously delicious, packed full of vegetables and extremely straightforward to make – a chuck it all into the pot and pop it in the oven recipes! It’s also great for using up leftover/sad vegetables in your fridge. See Lyndsay’s recipe on the bio link. @ieatmypeas #babyccinoeats #babyccinokids

Make your own gnome friends! We think these would be a fun after-school activity on a Friday afternoon to celebrate completing another week of school.

We’d love to share in our stories! Link in bio to @estherbabyccino ‘s idea from a birthday many moons ago. #babyccinokids #babyccinocrafts

Often seafood suppers seem complicated, and a bit pricey. But @laraoflondon’s family have perfected a Crab Linguine pasta dish this summer that we had to share with you. It is economical, easy to make, takes less than 15 minutes, and feeds the whole family a healthy dinner or a big family Sunday lunch. Link in bio. #babyccinokids #babyccinoreads
