Caramel -- the cutest place for children's haircuts
We adore Caramel -- it has been a Babyccino member for years on our shopping portal, and we adore visiting their little gem of a store in Notting Hill. 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 ...

Interestingly, they make shoes based on the principle that wearing no shoes is best! Their product has a distinct philosophy associated behind it. Bayarma tells us about ...

Mini Me – Copenhagen's coolest kicks for kids
If Copenhagen has a particular destination ‘high street’ – not so much high street stores as delis, flower shops, bakeries and independent bookstores all beautifully wrapped in a local neighbourhood vibe – then Gammel Kongevej in Frederiksberg is it. This could, to Copenhageners, seem a little strange – because Frederiksberg is actually a municipality all ...

Beautiful, European-style shoes at Munchkin et Moi
Shoes -- we cannot live without them so we might as well embrace them! Here in continental Europe we have some very specific styles of shoes for children. I swear you can often recognise a European child by the kind of shoes he/she is wearing! We like brogues, buckled shoes and shoes that get passed ...

My favourite brands from Byron Bay
There are roughly 9,000 people who live here in Byron Bay -- just over 30,000 if you include all the surrounding towns that make up all of Byron Shire. It is tiny! And yet, this little town is brimming with creative talent and beautiful brands. From designer furniture to stylish sandals, beach umbrellas to bikinis, and a ...

Finally the days are getting longer and the sign of spring is appearing. The bulbs are popping their heads up and the sun is shining! Every new season excites me but spring has to be my favourite. When the days are getting brighter so are the colours we wear. And when I saw La Coqueta's ...

Back to school with Young Soles shoes
It's back-to-school time! We have started exceptionally early here in Amsterdam -- our kids have been in school since mid-August already. The Netherlands is divided into three 'zones' -- each zone starts their summer vacation one week later than the others (with the aim to spread out vacation traffic etc). Our zone was the first to start their ...

A sunny new collection at Amy & Ivor
After spending a snowy week in NYC last week, I was relieved to come back home to London where spring is definitely in the air. Is it just me, or does it seem to be earlier this year than the past few years? It's soooo nice! In the week that I was away, the kids ...

Desert boots from De Vries
I was rearranging our shoe shelf the other day, putting away summery sandals and bringing out our shoes for Autumn, and I realised I have a real thing for desert boots. I love them! Both for girls and for boys (and even for myself!). What I love about desert boots is that they're gender neutral, ...

Amy & Ivor handmade moccasins
I've gotten moccasins for the kids before, but never ones this soft and supple! The moccasins from Amy & Ivor must be the closest thing to walking barefoot -- perfect for babies and beginner walkers... and even busy toddlers who never sit still (as tested by Marlow). Amy & Ivor moccasins are handmade to order and are ...

Sturdy summer sandals from Angulus

Leather baby booties from Donsje
I first discovered Donsje shoes at the Bubble tradeshow last January and loved the look of them immediately. I think the little lace-up leather booties are just so cute - many with contrasting laces, some with warm lining on the inside, and all made from soft, flexible leather. I finally got my hands on a ...

I recently ordered a couple pairs of Freshly Picked moccasins for Marlow, and I'm so happy I did. She's going through a 'take off my shoes and munch on them' phase, and it has been so annoying trying to keep anything on her feet (thank goodness it's been a warm summer). I love the look ...

Hunter Boots
When you live in the UK, rain boots are serious business. They aren't just an accessory for the odd rainy day, but a necessity year round. Even at the children's schools they're required to have a pair of wellies on hand for wet, rainy days... which means that all of my children have a pair ...

Earlier this week, a successful beauty blogger in the Netherlands, Nikkie de Jager @nikkietutorials publicly announced that she is transgender. A very brave thing to do and was incredibly impressed by her story and the way she chose to share it. If you haven’t seen it yet, there is a lot to learn from Nikkie’s coming out video on youtube. It is an inspiring message from a strong roll model, addressing young people who feel insecure, misunderstood or simply not in the right place. It is about acceptance, respect, hearing and understanding each other, about writing your own story, about the power of being yourself — whoever you are and whatever you are. It is also about the importance of supportive parenting. Nikkie shares that she is intensely grateful for her mother, who always saw and heard, listened and understood, respected and supported her in her choices and in her transition. We have always tried to be straightforward in discussing sex and reproduction with our children, and open about the idea that heterosexuality is just one shade of a wider spectrum of diversity. Thanks for the new blog post @estherbabyccino ... what are your thoughts? Comment below and link is in bio. #babyccinokids #thursdaythoughts
