Gelateria 3bis -- calling all ice cream lovers in London
Gelateria 3bis is a great way to keep summer alive as Autumn gets closer! We are so lucky (or is it so very very dangerous?) to live in walking distance to this gelateria on Portobello Road in Notting Hill. The thirty year old recipe and shop, famous on the Adriatic Coast in Rimini, Italy, is ...

Biscuteers -- a very British icing cafe for tea and fun
Biscuteers is such a cute little boutique and icing cafe! It is as sweet as the items it sells, and a very fun place to visit for tourists and locals alike! It really feels like you are a kid in a candy store with collections that specialise in hand-iced biscuits, chocolates and cakes.  And, before you ...

Caramel -- the cutest place for children's haircuts

They have several locations, but Notting Hill is so very special because tucked downstairs is an adorable kid's hair salon and it is truly a parent's dream! As ...

Fabrique Bakery -- the best cinnamon rolls in London
Thankfully Fabrique Bakery exists in London. In Stockholm, Fabrique is famous for the fika, a concept based around a Swedish cake & coffee break. Fortunately Fabrique bakery, located on Portobello Road, is about twenty minutes away from my home, so it is a destination.  If it was any closer, it would be deliciously dangerous to ...

Hearts will melt...
February is one of those months that really gets to me-- these long, dark winters really make me question why I live in dreary 'ol London. (I left sunny Los Angeles for THIS??). Thankfully, there's Valentine's Day to get me through it. (I'll take any excuse to overindulge in chocolate, but Valentine's Day is the ...

Today’s new post from Lara “Seek is the one and only app that our (young) children use. It started in lockdown over the Spring, as things sprung to life, and our children would ask us ‘what’s that?’ So my husband found the answer, which was for all of us to learn more from the world of amazing digital technology by using a free app (and find out more about the amazing world!). We think it is so outstanding actually and have told so many friends and family members to use it too, because it teaches them about the world and nature! I should quickly add that this is not a sponsored post! It is just a great tip I wanted to share.” And we love this thought... “You don’t have to travel far to find weird and beautiful wildlife. Your garden, local park, street tree, window box or the verge alongside a local footpath are rich ecosystems filled with species… you’ll be able to identify any living thing in your patch – plants, flowers, insects, fungi, birds and animals. It’s like having a naturalist in your pocket! When you ID a species you’ll be able to find out all about it, and see how common or rare it is for your area and the time of year.” More about the app in our bio link. But tell us, are you using any interesting educational apps for nature or science? ps And stay tuned for more about her holiday on a lighthouse island in @laraoflondon ‘s post next week! #babyccinokids #babyccinotips #babyccinotravels #seek

Autumn Equinox — a note from Esther... “I was talking to Lara earlier today, and she was reminding me of the start of Autumn happening today. Autumn! Today, the bright daylight hours and the dark nightly hours are of equal length. From now on, the days will get shorter, the nights will get longer… until the longest night, Winter Solstice (taking place on December 21st) will mark the beginning of the Winter season. Today is Autumn Equinox: the night and the day are in perfect balance. It marks the moment of the sun entering Libra (my star sign!), bringing harmony and stability, and which is ruled by Venus, the planet of love and beauty. All good things, and definitely things we need in these uncertain, difficult and turbulent times. Autumn is when the air starts to feel crisper and smell muddier, when the colours of nature are intensifying before they change colour, when the light is low and magical, when the days get wetter and the weather gets windier. It is the time to harvest apples and nuts and pumpkins, to make pies and soups and stews and to cosy up the house with rugs, pillows and blankets. Fall is so cosy! To celebrate this First Day of Autumn, I thought it would be nice to make a list of all the little things, family traditions and crafts we love doing in fall. Most we have posted about before, but there are some new ideas and things I want to try as well. Going through old posts and getting this list together has been so inspiring — yes, we are entering the darker and colder months, but there is so much to do and make, and many of these activities are super simple and made with whatever nature supplies us with. Fall truly is fabulous!” xx Esther Enjoy @estherbabyccino fifteen favourite fall activities to get inspired, link in bio. #babyccinokids #babyccinotips #autumnequinox @maudfontein 🧡

Vegetable bolognese anyone? This ragu is seriously, seriously delicious, packed full of vegetables and extremely straightforward to make – a chuck it all into the pot and pop it in the oven recipes! It’s also great for using up leftover/sad vegetables in your fridge. See Lyndsay’s recipe on the bio link. @ieatmypeas #babyccinoeats #babyccinokids

Make your own gnome friends! We think these would be a fun after-school activity on a Friday afternoon to celebrate completing another week of school. (Is it just us or does every week feel even longer than it ever has before?) Or even a weekend craft too. See these step-by-step photos and share your finished gnomes with us. We’d love to share in our stories! Link in bio to @estherbabyccino ‘s idea from a birthday many moons ago. #babyccinokids #babyccinocrafts

Often seafood suppers seem complicated, and a bit pricey. But @laraoflondon’s family have perfected a Crab Linguine pasta dish this summer that we had to share with you. It is economical, easy to make, takes less than 15 minutes, and feeds the whole family a healthy dinner or a big family Sunday lunch. Link in bio. #babyccinokids #babyccinoreads

Tiny, Perfect Things by M.H. Clark and Madeline Kloepper. The book is about a supportive grandparent sharing and encouraging his granddaughter in a way that only loving and patient relationship do. What fun it is to find some magic in books! It truly is a little treasure that needs a spot in any book collection. @_maays___ #babyccinokids #babyccinoreads

This gym bag is such a fun and easy project, also for beginners this is a nice sewing project. Esther, Emilie and the kids had so much fun going to the market choosing all the supplies. The fabrics from Little Cube are the cutest!
