A simple knitted beanie!
One of my many New Years resolutions (which I started over the Christmas period) is to continue making things - just because it makes me happy. ; ) I love watching movies in the evenings, but I also like keeping busy so I have started to try to find simple projects that I can do while ...

Olivier Baby and Kids, at the ShopUp this week!

Last winter Marlow lived in her little bonnet and all the kids had one of their snoods, each a different colour to keep things easy when bundling up before leaving the house. This year they've added hand-knitted pom-pom hats (with ...

Booboos' Bonnets

She wrote to introduce me to her beautiful collection of handmade bonnets and I'm so glad she did. Aren't they beautiful? I love the simple, classic styles and the gorgeous fabrics. I ended up ordering one for ...

Colourful cashmere accessories from Olivier Baby and Kids
I recently got the kids cashmere snoods and I honestly don't know what took me so long to catch on to this convenient fashion trend. Snoods are so much easier than scarves. Hands down. (I can totally understand now why scarves were banned from Emilie's girls' school! They're a pain to keep wrapped around the neck, and often ...

Slowly but steadily autumn is upon us here in Amsterdam.

Gorgeous hat/scarf/mittens sets from Mini McGhee
It's nowhere near as cold as last year, but still cold enough for warm woollens -- here in the Netherlands we tend to take the kids around on the back of our bicycles (or in the bakfiets), so kids have to be bundled up in the winter. These SUPER soft Pixie hats from Mini McGhee ...

Customise your own Summer Hats
We have a bit of a hat obsession in our house -- an obsession which I encourage during these hot, sunny summer months. As the Australians say: Slip, Slop and Slap -- slip on a shirt, slop on some suntan lotion and slap on a hat (do correct me if I have got that one ...

Mittens that stay up -- no strings attached!
Now here is a concept I wish I would have created... mittens that stay put, really.  They're mittens with long, stretchy cuffs that reach the elbow, making sure that no matter how much your child wriggles, runs, or plays, those mittens won't budge, and they won't fill with snow either. With sizes ranging from baby ...

Eton Mess is a family favourite of @laraoflondon. In our house it is referred to as ‘Messy Mash’ and that is exactly what it is. A delicious, sweet, fruity bowl of soft and fluffy meringue bits with juicy berries and delectable whipped cream! We have taken this tradition, and given it a twist adding more berries. But the history of Eton Mess, named after the famous Eton Boarding School that many prime ministers and princes, kings, etc have attended, is that “the strawberry, meringue and cream pudding was dropped at an Eton v Harrow cricket match in the late 19th century. Perhaps it was a Pavlova style desert. Rather than waste the food, it was simply scooped up off the floor and served, smashed to bits, in individual bowls.” I love the tale of this story, and my kids love smashing the berries and meringue into bits to create this wonderfully sweet but not too saccharin dessert. It is also bake-free, takes only a few minutes to make on a day where you’d rather sit in the sun then be in the kitchen. Ingredients : Meringue (2 very large or 20 smaller ones — you can make them, or we enjoy cheating this step and buying delicious ones instead) Whipping Cream 1.5 punnet of strawberries Blackberries, raspberries, blueberries, optional so add to your liking! Vanilla Pod, sliced in half and seeds removed, or vanilla paste, or extract, to your liking. I prefer not to use the vanilla extract as it leaves a bit of an alcohol flavour. Steps for the mess : Rinse all of your fruit. Chop half the strawberries and put them in a blender or smash up. Pour the double cream/whipping cream into a large mixing bowl and add the vanilla. Then whip it up! Break up the meringues into about one-inch pieces, put them in the mixing bowl with the cream, add the smashed strawberries and fold the cream in around them to give a marbled effect. Place the mixture in serving dishes. Chop the rest of the strawberries and combine with the other berries. Put on top of your smashed mixture. You may want to pour a little extra cream on top, but I like the bright, uninterrupted colours of just the berries on the top. Enjoy immediately! #babyccinokids #babyccinoeats
