Featurekins // Loved By Sophia Claire

With all the rainbow of colors, faces of animals, and light up everything, it is nice when you can actually find baby gear that is simple and stylish.  I love anything for baby that has a nod to simplicity and good design, rather than in-your-face fussiness.  These pacifier/toy clips are perfect, because they are hand-braided and real leather.   These clips from Loved By Sophia Claire, have become an everyday necessity that I, and my baby, enjoy using on the regular. Oh! An added bonus, is that you can customize the clip shape and color of leather, so now you and your baby have something to smile about!

Fashionkins // Twinning in Lightning Bolts and Wild Zebras

My mom used to dress my older sister and I in matching outfits. To tell you the truth, we were not big fans of it but now, being a mom, it’s my turn to make some twinning magic happen and I will take full advantage of it while I can, because twinning is winning!

Babiekins Magazine | Easter Woodland Style

Bunny ears, pastel colours, bows, sequins and sunlight streaming through the forest. Easter brings forth an excuse to dress up and savour treats and time. Little hand-made dresses and a crochet rug make the perfect excuse to pack our bags and head out into the forest to play on the rope swing, gobble chocolate cookies and play in the sunshine. Just a few of our favourite things. Adding some bunny ears meant a morning of play and frolicking, the best way to pass time.

Sleepykins // Which Way? That Way.

It can often be difficult to find a designer who truly understands how children see the world – with That Way we have finally found a genius that has managed it. The brains and creativity behind this imaginative brand come from Aga and Damian.

Babiekins Magazine // That Way

Aga has used her years of expertise as an art director and illustrator to transform her talent into creating unique products for children’s interiors and clothing.

You would be forgiven for thinking that Aga is a zoologist when you look at her designs! They really do capture the beauty of the creatures in our world. Each and every time you just look at one of her new pieces, you are being personally invited to take a step into her crazy imagination and look at the world in a completely different way.

As a designer myself, it is really great to see someone pushing the boundaries for children – after all, who says that they cannot enjoy great design?

Fashionkins // Ahoy Tees

For our middle boy Jerome, we had a nautical themed baby shower, birth announcement, party, etc. In short, everything was covered in anchors, stripes and pirates until his first birthday. Even now, I must say that I am drawn to all those cool props and drawings with that have a nautical feel. I was over the moon when I discovered this cool brand Ahoy Tees! Now I can coordinate all my babies in matchy matchy Ahoy! They even have the cutest tops for mamas.

Our schools may be in session, but we are refusing to let go of the summer days around here. We’re still making time for the pool, lake visits and fishing trips, and of course, lots and lots of outdoor play.

Tom & Teddy, an Australian-born male swimwear brand, recently splashed into the US with a new swimwear collection. The 2014 collection, titled “Vintage,” consists of six new 1960’s inspired designs including waves, speedboats, airplanes and retro scooters.

Originally launched in Australia in February 2012, Tom & Teddy caters to a family-oriented market with matching swim shorts in male junior and adult sizes. The collection features a variety of new, graphic prints in vibrant, bold colors.

And best of all? The swimwear is salt water, chlorine and UV resistant. Double stitching makes the shorts extra durable and each pair has side and back pockets with velcro closures. All swim shorts are available in matching sets and sizes start at 12 months for boys and go up to XXL for adult men’s.
