I love love and I heart hearts, which is one of the many reasons I am so excited to share my love of love and hearts with my babiekin this Valentine’s Day. Whether hearts are on a whimsical t-shirt, a tutu skirt, a plush toy, shoes, decor or a doll’s play-tent a graphic heart print says I Love You in a fresh and fun way! This Season I am loving heart prints and think you can wear them even past Valentine’s Day because Love is something to share everyday; isn’t it?
It’s 4th of July weekend, a celebration of American Independence that includes enjoying BBQ, family, friends, fireworks and hopefully some fun in the sun. The most patriotic way for your babiekins to celebrate Independence Day and to salute the American flag is to match it by wearing stars and stripes. Stars are a trend in apparel and accessories that are fashionable and classic enough to wear even after the 4th of July day. I have a round-up of some adorable fashions that will have you seeing stars and wanting to pledge allegiance to the American flag. Enjoy and have a wonderful and safe 4th of July weekend!
I am literally going bananas over bananas! This yellow tropical fruit is adding a bit of whimsy and fun this summer season on everything from apparel, accessories and shoes to decor (Warhol’s iconic banana print is even on a bugaboo bee fabric set!). Who doesn’t love this yummy fruit? Soon your babiekins will be asking for bananas for breakfast, bananas for lunch, bananas any time of the day! Go ahead, let them go ape!
This spring season eye glasses replace mustaches as the new cool icon; the polo makes a return as a fashion staple; and chemistry blurs with art creating Pop Lab. I am loving this new ‘geek chic’ trend because I grew up watching Bill Nye the Science Guy and I have always loved experimenting with science. I consider the most wonderful experiments to be the ones that don’t turn out quite as expected – it’s the mistakes that surprise us with a fusion of Pop Lab. I am looking forward to creating science experiments with my little babiekin that teach him about the wonderfully unexpected world of science.
This week we’ve started to see the tulip’s breaking through; the first of the lighter afternoon’s; the birds on our short walk to school. Spring is definitely on it’s way.
And with Spring, brings the need to clear out. We need more playroom storage. Storage doesn’t have to be mundane. Check out these super cute ideas to give you extra space whilst adding pops of colour into your Babiekin’s room.
I’m rarely happier this winter than when the wood fire is raging, the popcorn is warm, pizza is ordered in and I’m snuggled in with the kids and ready to watch a film on a Friday night. We have an old trunk in our lounge full of blankets and throws to get cozy with. From blankets that have seen better days but hold treasured memories of babies first trips home from the hospital, to beautifully chunky knitted blankets saved for the snack free film nights!
I’ve rounded up a few of my favorites to inspire you and your little babiekins to snuggle down for film night these holidays.
