Alice à Paris
I have a real soft spot for the French kids clothes; living in Paris for 5 years has made its mark... Alice à Paris is a perfect example of French style: Simple cuts, high quality material and lovely, muted colours. There are not a lot of pieces on offer, but each one is beautiful. And what ...

Waddler
Just after the birth of their first baby, Philip and his wife Marina waved bye-bye to London and moved to South America so their son "spent his first years picking avocadoes in a tropical garden, riding bareback with gauchos and dining on the Andean speciality: roast guinea pig. He saw the forests come alive with ...

Hucklebones at Chic eKids
Before my daughter was born, and when I had just the two boys, Hucklebones was one of those brands that made me long for a daughter -- oh to dress her in beautiful, timeless pieces -- the dresses, the winter coats, the blouses, etc. Anyway, now that I do have a little girl, I am ...

BB+++
I love the new collection from Buisjes En Beugels (BB+++). It might have to do with my sudden craze of all things yellow, but I LOVE this yellow silk skirt that I got for my daughter. (That photo actually is my daughter Sara with her grandfather's horse). Kellie, the super creative woman behind BB+++, always ...

Hold it up with Dapper Snappers
Nowadays a lot of children's trousers are sold with the elastic band inside, so they can grow with the belly size of your kid and it's all a big improvement. However, sometimes there's still the odd pair sold without the elastic inside, which admittedly has a much nicer fit but does come with the problem ...

Win!! Adorable 'Gold' baby girl outfit from Smallable
As a very pregnant mama, Smallable is a dangerous shop for me to browse. And especially if I go over to the baby girl section... (The baby boy section is equally cute, but fact is, I'm going to have a little girl!) Wish I could participate in this amazing give-away...  Gold is a fairly new ...

Poppy and her dog Fred
This weekend I wore shorts for the first time this year -- yay!! And my daughter wore her dress without leggings and was running round the garden with bare feet -- Hurray! Time to write about the delightful summer dresses from Poppy. Bringing to mind the best from Fifties fashion, these dresses are just what a ...

Fun fashion from Madre Perla
Last week my colleague and I were enjoying the nice spring weather (oh, finally!) with a walk through the center of Amsterdam. We sat down in a café to have some traditional Dutch apple pie (I'm pregnant after all) , and I suddenly noticed a lovely young lady sitting across from us carrying one of ...

Masala Baby dress (and win!)
I love bright colours -- especially in this cold, grey winter season a splash of colour does wonders to my mood. And my daughter loves dresses she can twirl in -- the moment a dress twirls, it is labelled a princess dress! So when we received a beautiful dress from Masala Baby, a NewYork-based label, ...

What's the story with Oilily?
About 40 years ago, a young Dutch couple, Willem and Marieke Olsthoorn, started a children's label called Oilily. Marieke had a unique talent for design, and Willem had an independent feel for business. They gathered an unconventional bunch of people around them to help grow their brand, all driven by the same mentality as Marieke and ...

Before I had kids I seriously had no idea that there were so many great brands out there, ranging from cheap and cheerful to seriously luxurious. My newest discovery ...

Madison Browne does cashmere
My husband and I joke that the upside to English weather is that you never have to switch out your winter wardrobe for your summer one, and you can wear cashmere all year long! (Seriously, yes -- summer is really that bad here.) Now, buying cashmere for your kids does seem a bit indulgent... but ...

Receiving packages in Paris is a nightmare! The post is notorious for losing most packages. The other option is private delivery companies, but the delivery times are often between 8 am and 6 pm. There is no way that I can stay in my flat for a full 10 hours, so I always miss the ...

Shirin Kids
A few days ago my daughter's teacher came up with a new nickname for her: she now calls her Kate Moss. This is slightly due to the fact that she insists on wearing a pair of over-sized purple sun glasses to school and never wants to take them off, even when it is raining (actually ...

When the girls were in Paris, Esther and I were chatting about the different perceptions we had about Japanese design. Esther, coming from a background in architecture views Japanese style as clean, minimalist, muted colours and general zen-ess, whilst, with my background in animation, I think of Japanese style as bright, funky and crazy.

Summer holidays! If you follow Esther and Emilie on Instagram, you’ll have seen a few happy photos of their two families together in France! It’s a sweet summertime tradition for them. Being on the opposite side of the world, I will admit it makes me feel extra far away and sad to miss out on these wonderful get-togethers. The kids are all growing up so quickly — I couldn’t believe how tall and grown-up Emilie’s girls have gotten. And speaking of tall — I’m pretty sure Esther now has at least two kids who are taller than I am. Like an old granny would do, I’m pretty sure I’d squeeze their cheeks and tell them all I remember holding them in my arms when they were just one day old!!! Anyway, we’re taking a couple of weeks off from blogging to allow Esther, Emilie and all of our wonderful contributors some time to enjoy a bit of summer holiday family time. We hope you’re doing the same! See you back here in a couple of weeks. Courtney xx @estherbabyccino @emiliebabyccino @courtneyadamo #babyccinokids

Fancy an easy-peasy, delicious, light, fudgy chocolate sponge cake? Easy enough to rustle up with a 3-year-old’s help too. It’s gluten-free for starters, vegan, and nut free too. 🤎 You won’t need any fancy kit, the preparation time is around 10 minutes, there’s no whipping, melting, or soaking overnight, and you won’t need to source any wacky ingredients from the health food shop. It’s also a robust enough recipe to work as either cupcakes, a sponge cake, or even a loaf. So visit our new blog post and get baking! @beesbakery #babyccinokids #babyccinoeats
