VALENTINE'S DAY CRAFTS
Valentines Love Heart Bunting with Potato Printing
There is lots of love in the air, with Valentine's Day here, so I wanted to create a craft with simple items we had on hand. Naturally, a classic potato print project came to mind. After all aren't potato prints a right of passage? This craft entertained my nearly two year old and almost five ...

Sweet and sugar-free Valentine's party
I love to create small and sweet celebrations out of holidays, and Valentine's Day is no exception! While I was heavily pregnant last year, I wanted to do a fuss-free Valentine's Day 'baking' activity with my daughter, but without the dreaded sugar crash afterwards. So we made watermelon hearts, which are bake free, and only sweet ...

An amazingly snug and cozy bunting bag
This week, we've seen snow for the first time in Amsterdam this year, and even though it only lasted for an hour, I've been gearing up for severe cold. Snow boots, puffy jackets, hats and scarves -- we are ready for winter! I've transformed Ava's pushchair (a simple umbrella style one) into a wonderfully warm ...

Water-resistant garlands from Hip Hooray
I recently discovered these nifty reusable SmartGarlands from Hip Hooray. What makes them so brilliant is that they look like the beautiful tissue paper garlands I love so much... yet they're made of a water-resistant, high density polyethylene material which makes them super durable and totally reusable.  I can't tell you how many garlands I've ...

Bunting has had a serious revival in recent years. For me it evokes birthday parties, village fêtes, country weddings and general wholesomeness... and is so easy to make yourself! To celebrate Babyccino's 1st birthday my friend, Purvika Patel, who runs her own bunting making business, put me through a bunting master class. We spent a ...

Birthday bunting
It seems we are attending birthday parties every weekend these days... it must be that time of year! Here in England, no birthday celebration is complete without bunting -- a term I have only learned since living here! Bunting is very common across Europe, and you can find loads of really cute designs.  So I've ...

DIY birthday decorations
My 'baby' turned one this week, so I'm in a festive mood! I decided to have a go at making some cute birthday decorations... I brought out my collection of tissue paper, cut out little tear-drop shapes, and stuck them all to a long piece of string. Cute, don't you think? I might even leave ...

It’s World Mental Health Week this week, which is a wonderful opportunity to talk about our children’s mental health and how best to support our kids through their emotional ups and downs. In the research @courtneyadamo did on adolescence for her Tweens & Teens e-course, @intheloop.teens she learned that it is normal for mental health and self-esteem to plummet at the onset of adolescence and puberty. Adolescence is a huge developmental period where children’s brains are being reconstructed, their emotions are supercharged, their bodies are changing and they are charting a path away from their parents, leaving behind the comforts and familiarity of childhood. If you think about it, it would be strange if our tweens and teens didn’t feel confused, anxious and self-critical at some stage in this developmental period. These emotional ups and downs are completely normal. Despite knowing this, it can still be incredibly difficult to see our children sad, anxious or angry. Sometimes their big emotions can make us uncomfortable or want to retreat. So what exactly should we do when we see our children struggling? Link in bio for some recommendations Courtney’s gathered from the research she’s done… #worldmentalhealth
