SHOP
Gallery 196
With its entrance tucked around the corner from the main shopping street in Primrose Hill, this charming shop can almost be mistaken for one of the many pretty homes lining the street - or be overlooked entirely if you're not careful. And yet, it's one of my very favourite shops in the neighbourhood and worth a visit ...

Chic sweatshirts for mums (and papas!) at émoi émoi
Boy am I a sucker for anything French. I really never thought I would wear a sweatshirt with a slogan, but when that slogan is written in French it suddenly just looks so much more chic, no? And how could I resist the Maman Poule ('mother hen') version? I love it! These ever-so-chic sweatshirts are ...

The story of the beautiful brand @wunderlang is such a wonderful one. Founder Andrea Lang is SO mindful and SO respectful towards everything life has to offer: ‘I made it my mission to source garments made from natural fibers, which were no longer wearable due to tears or flaws. I set about deconstructing them and making them into children’s clothes. Effectively saving them from the landfill.’ Head over to our blog to read Andrea’s humbling answers to our 5 questions, and get inspired! #reuse #consciousfashion #wunderlang #babyccinokids #babyccinoboutiques #babyccinointerviews

‘I think the @louisemisha pieces appeal to the girls because they are pretty and feminine, with bright pink embroidery, ruffles and a good ‘spin factor’ in the dresses. And of course I love the dresses because they are sweet, without being saccharine, if you know what I mean. It’s a win/win.’ Head over to our blog for more photos of Courtney and her girls, modeling some sweet pieces of the new @louisemisha collection! @courtneyadamo #babyccinokids #babyccinoboutiques #louisemisha #sponsored

‘Of course they were having fun with their friends, of course they are still having long showers whilst protesting wastage, but they are young, after all, and still growing and learning. I think it is so important to be vocal and take to the streets and learn that it is right to stand up, and I am so proud of all of these kids for doing that.’ ‘A lot still needs to be done for climate change… but this little glimmer of hope in between all the terrifying news does make me smile.’ Wise words on the blog from @emiliebabyccino @gretathunberg #babyccinokids #globalclimatestrike
