Soft, organic baby sleep essentials from MORI
I met with Akin, one of the co-founders of MORI, in London a couple years ago -- back before they had launched their business, when they were seeking advice about their idea. He asked me if I thought there was a need for organic baby essentials. Yes! He asked what I thought about the designs. I ...

Upcycle Clothes - together with the Funky Peas
My kids are hopefully going to stop growing soon. Not only because my eldest, who is now 10 is almost as big as I am (!) but also because of the amount of clothes they go through is just simply extraordinary. I was talking to my friend Michelle about this the other day and we ...

Marie Puce, timeless Parisian chic for all ages
As I mentioned before, finding the right style for a nine-year-old can be tricky. It is a funny age, when children are still children but also teenagers at the same time. Luckily boutiques like Marie Puce have a great selection of clothes for older kids. I love their style - it is at the same time ...

Pala Mino
I now have a 9 year old who “hates” girly stuff. Now the problem is that it is very hard to understand what that actually means. When questioned the answer is: “Well, you know…. girly stuff!!!!” What I have concluded is that it means pink and frills and nothing that is considered “not comfy”. The ...

Cool new products from Muddy Puddles
A few years ago a Swedish friend told me: there's no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing. That year I ran out and invested in a big, warm, waterproof parka, and I swear it changed my entire outlook on winter. Having proper outdoor clothing is really essential to making the most of the ...

To shave or not to shave? Makeup free and natural or fight those sign of age, avoid grey hair, etc? We received lovely responses from readers yesterday who appreciated seeing makeup-free Emilie and Esther make-up on holiday. It reminded us of Courtney’s article on pampering pressures on social media. And arm hair! How do you feel about grooming and pampering as a mama, and what lessons is it teaching your kids? 🤷‍️ One reader commented : “We really do make life harder for ourselves: the same people telling us to be happy with ourselves, love ourselves, accept ourselves etc are the same people telling us in the next breath (or page of a magazine, or showing us on the red carpet) to shave everything/dye our hair/wear a push-up bra/undergo surgery to stop the ageing process... I tell my kids all the time – be your own person. It’s fine to be inspired by, covet, try or buy something you’ve seen on someone else, but ultimately YOU have to shine through too and what makes you YOU is going to be very different to the next person, so embrace it. Hair (or no hair!) and all.” What are your thoughts? #babyccinokids
