Shon Mott, beautiful clothing for us mamas!
As parents we often spend time looking for nice things for our kids, and forget to pamper ourselves. But in a shop like Shon Mott where they take so much care in selecting their materials, you might be spoiling yourself, but I can guarantee your kids won't complain when you wrap them up in your new ...

Thomas Sires - A boutique for women, children, and home in Nolita
I popped into the boutique Thomas Sires, in Manhattan's Nolita neighborhood, on a dreary February day and it was just the bright spot I needed during these last few weeks of winter, when it seems spring may never come back around again. In the store, which carries gorgeous items for women, children, and home, the ...

Souvenirs from Copenhagen – Vintage Danish blue plates
When we first moved to Copenhagen, I noticed many of our Danish friends had cool, eclectic crockery collections that were mixed and matched. There were handmade one-offs from stores like Stilleben mixed with simple white dishes from chains like Søstrene Grene, and there were vintage plates from loppemarkeder (flea markets). I noticed that in among the latter, ...

Here its founder Michaela W-B and her small, enthusiastic team busily create soft, organic things ‘for dreamers and adventurers’, many of which are designed for buying now and carrying on ...

CW Pencil Enterprise
I love New York for many reasons, but the existence of specialized shops like CW Pencil Enterprise -- an entire store devoted to  pencils (!) - ranks high on the list. I'm by no means a pencil expert, but the selection here seems near-encyclopedic, and with a budding little writer on my hands it was ...

The Micro Beach Wagon -- an excellent companion, even in the city
One of the pesky little things of living in this beautiful city of mine is transport. All my friends who live outside of Paris own a car. The simplicity of jumping into a car and driving to a shop, loading the groceries or bigger items from the trolly to the boot of the car and ...

Our Spring LA ShopUp -- a recap in photos

WEEKEND GETAWAYS
Weekend Getaway: Byron Bay, Australia
We discovered Byron Bay during our first campervan journey up the east coast of Australia back in 2010. It rained every day during that visit, which kept us from spending time on Bryon's beautiful beaches, but forced us inland to discover its 'hinterland' -- a verdant countryside of rolling hills, secret swimming holes and charming towns. While Byron's beaches and surf scene ...

One of the most enriching and enjoyable experiences when travelling to a new place can be found in visiting the local markets -- somewhere you can truly immerse yourself in local culture and cuisine. Markets always offer beautiful seasonal produce, fresh foods and an atmosphere that is representative of where you are. In Amsterdam there ...

The London 2016 ShopUp (a recap in photos)
The London ShopUp wrapped up last night and it was, if I may say so, our best one yet! Even the weather was kind to us this year with not a single cloud in the sky (our rain curse must finally be over!). We had more than 3,000 visitors stop by, browse, shop and say hello. What a ...

See you at the ShopUp (this Sunday & Monday)!

Fast forward four years and here we are again busily making last-minute preparations for our 4th annual event. This ...

We don't eat a lot of candy in our house (or at least not while our daughter is awake...shhh!), but I'll confess to having an abiding love for sour gummy candy. A small pouch of Sour Patch Kids can be picked up at any hour in any drug store or bodega, but a far better ...

Norman & Jules Toy Shop
Like most apartment-dwellers in New York, the amount of space available in our home for toys and playthings is relatively modest. In theory this means I try to be thoughtful about new items brought home or gifted to us, doing my best to rotate toys to keep them fresh and to remove items that are ...

If you’re looking for something a little bit different to try over the holidays then this is a great activity.️ Botanical hammer printing is a fun way to capture the colours of a season, it’s super easy, not to mention noisy! It scores 10/10 with kids though I doubt neighbours rate it quite as highly. 🤣 Great for cards, cushion covers, wall art, and more!

Jamberry is the sweetest of board books. It’s about a young boy and a bear who merrily play through the land of berries. The characters sit in a canoe of blueberries with their hats bursting of berries and they lay in a meadow of strawberries with dancing lambs and ponies.

To shave or not to shave? Makeup free and natural or fight those sign of age, avoid grey hair, etc? We received lovely responses from readers yesterday who appreciated seeing makeup-free Emilie and Esther make-up on holiday. It reminded us of Courtney’s article on pampering pressures on social media. And arm hair! How do you feel about grooming and pampering as a mama, and what lessons is it teaching your kids? 🤷‍️ One reader commented : “We really do make life harder for ourselves: the same people telling us to be happy with ourselves, love ourselves, accept ourselves etc are the same people telling us in the next breath (or page of a magazine, or showing us on the red carpet) to shave everything/dye our hair/wear a push-up bra/undergo surgery to stop the ageing process... I tell my kids all the time – be your own person. It’s fine to be inspired by, covet, try or buy something you’ve seen on someone else, but ultimately YOU have to shine through too and what makes you YOU is going to be very different to the next person, so embrace it. Hair (or no hair!) and all.” What are your thoughts? #babyccinokids
