A peek at our little Paris kitchen
A few people have asked me for photos of my flat and of the kitchen. Though we moved into our new place exactly two years ago (!), I've never gotten round to taking photos. We now live in Belleville, a vibrant, multicultural part of Paris. We lived for years on one of the big boulevards ...

Interesting Article: The Confidence Gap for Girls
Today is the International Day of Girls, a perfect opportunity to share this article Courtney recently sent to me from the New York Times. The article, which addresses a confidence gap for young girls, has made me think about how one of the bigger shocks of my girls getting older is witnessing the self consciousness creeping in. I'm ...

PARENTING TIPS
Teenagers -- let them vent!
When my girls were small, their problems seemed smaller. A cuddle and a kiss solved most problems. But as they grow bigger, so does the complexity of their problems. I cannot just rush in like Batman anymore and make everything okay.  One new development I have noticed as my kids getting older is the need ...

Shon Mott, beautiful clothing for us mamas!
As parents we often spend time looking for nice things for our kids, and forget to pamper ourselves. But in a shop like Shon Mott where they take so much care in selecting their materials, you might be spoiling yourself, but I can guarantee your kids won't complain when you wrap them up in your new ...

This past weekend, the event that drew us all to London was our 2nd annual spring/summer ShopUp, and it was such a beautiful event! Honestly, it was so fun and so inspiring. We ...

Nostalgic baby clothes from Van Beren
Babies do seem to come in waves! Just when all the babies I know have started walking and talking, there is a new bunch of cuddly little ones that have turned up in my life (most important of all, our little Bram ;)). So I have had the pleasure of re-discovering the world of baby clothes ...

TRAVEL
Kid & Coe - the perfect place to stay
We love traveling as a family! Ever since the kids were small, getting out of our daily environment, spending time together and discovering new things has been our favourite thing to do. Some of our best memories have been made while we've been on the road. Sometimes things don't even go to plan, but that ...

Merci Maman -- prettiest hand engraved, personalised necklaces
I don't tend to wear a lot of jewellery, I actually don't even have pierced ears! Every piece of jewellery I do own has some sentimental value. A little trinket bought on a holiday, or a present for a special occasion. Possibly not worth much, but very valuable to me nonetheless. For our 10 year ...

Classic French Fruit Tarte
This year is a year of plums in the French countryside – the trees are falling over with them!! I tried to vary a little bit from my usual solution to this 'problem', which is to bake a clafoutis every day. This year, I tried one of the most traditional French desserts: a fruit tarte. The great ...

'Read the Room' -- advice for kids
I have recently realised that a lot of my parenting philosophies can be synthesised down into a few short phrases or even words. The phrases have changed with the years (I don't seem to be screaming a simple "Stop!" that often anymore). Some phrases, I am sure, have been used since the dawn of time. ...

My favourite cruelty-free skincare products
My daughter has started developing her activist streak and it is really making me think about my shopping habits and attitudes. I absolutely agree with her that testing on animals is not a great thing, but have to admit I can easily forget to think about it when out shopping. But seeing the earnestness in ...
