Naked Lunge

April 30, 2014

"handmade linen dolls""hand made linen dolls""grey and white striped pillowcase""liberty print bedlinen"Adorable linen dolls, beautiful bed linen and stylish stationery is what it’s all about at Naked Lunge.  It’s all very understated and simple which is what I’m loving.  Naked Lunge is the creation of designer Roxanna who is also running a workshop in London this Summer where you can learn to make your own dolls.  Speaking of those dolls, aren’t they great?  I’m loving the simple drawing style which runs through the entire range of stuff as well as the colours Roxanna has used.

Naked Lunge has recently teamed up with Brave Ones Apparel to create the most adorable range of clothes – how cute are these trousers, mittens and tops?  I love the bunny print as well as the Indian boy and girl print.  Naked Lunge also offers jewellery, stationery and some tea towels all of which are pretty cool.  I love Roxanna’s style and think she is very much a designer to watch.

Happy mummy socks

April 29, 2014

"novelty socks for ladies""fun socks for women""fun socks for ladies"These mummy socks made me smile so I had to share.  How fun are they?  All animal themed with lots of humour and cuteness.  These socks will surely make for very happy feet! 

"European kids clothing shop"

Today I’m excited to introduce you to Walking the Cat, my newest sponsor and a very cool kids wear boutique from Germany.   Walking the Cat are a new online shop filled with some of my favourite brands like Bobo Choses, Louise Misha, Soft Gallery, Tocoto Vintage and more.  The founder Daria is crazy about kids fashion and it shows from her lovely selections.

"tights for boys"

Walking the Cat have clothes and accessories for boys, girls and babies.  One of their standout brands for me is Little Titans who make cool and colourful tights for boys as well as girls.  Who said tights are just for girls?!  Walking the Cat are new so they’re still adding labels to their range and one of their latest additions is Buho, a gorgeous brand from Spain.  While I have my favourites, all their brands are slightly unusual and very stylish yet very practical and comfy for kids too.  Walking the Cat, just like the name suggests, is a fun store with a cool attitude and they deliver worldwide too.

This week I’m especially glad it’s Friday.  It’s been a long week with a lot of travel so I’m glad to be home and look forward to sleeping a lot!  Before I leave you for the weekend, I wanted to share this happy new collection by Tiny Cottons.  The prints are so adorable and the colours so cheerful and percfect for Summer.  This collection brought a big smile to my face and I think it will do the same for you.

Have a happy weekend x

"handmade rag dolls"

I wanted to start by saying sorry to you, my readers, for my silence this past week.  I was away on holiday and spent the last week in Nepal.  While traveling around I didn’t have much internet access.   We had a wonderful holiday though and I really recommend a trip to Nepal.  I will post some holiday pics soon but today I wanted to share these beautiful hand made dolls with you. 

"hand made rag dolls""hand made doll mobiles"

These dolls are hand made in Brooklyn, NY by talented mama Indira Villalobos.  This is her new collection for 2014 and I love the colours that she has chosen as well as the gorgeous metallic linen fabric.  Those pink overalls are just the sweetest!  In addition to the dolls, there are pretty mobiles and decorative star cushions.  I’ve known the designer Indira for a while and know that she puts lots of love and passion in to what she creates which is why each piece is made by hand and every little detail is paid attention to.  Indira created the brand Snuggly Ugly with her husband a couple of years ago and this collection is my favourite yet, especially those beautiful star and moon mobiles.  

"ramayana by sanjay patel"

Ramayana by Sanjay Patel is possibly one of the most beautiful kids books we’ve got.  While the book is based on Hindu mythology, it’s a simplified version of the story that any child can relate to.  The tale involves a prince, a 10 headed demon, a beautiful goddess like princess and some animals with super powers.  It’s about an adventure involving deceit, wit, friendships and good triumphing over evil.  The story is engaging and the illustrations are stunning.  Full of colour and detail, each page comes to life with pictures that tell the story as beautifully as the words.

Since it’s a long book we’ve been reading it in chunks.  We’ve already been through it twice and I know we’ll be reading it many more times in the coming years.  Anya absolutely loves the book and will often get it out herself to look at the pictures. 

"ramayana by Sanjay patel"

Ramayana by Sanjay Patel is a book that can be appreciated by kids and adults alike.  It really is a must have book in any child’s library (Hindu or not) and also makes a beautiful gift.

"Scandinavian homewares and kids clothes"While browsing La Petite, I recently discovered this sister duo who design homewares, kids stuff and more, all with a minimal touch.  I’m loving that graphic bear print that appears on quite a lot of stuff from baby blankets to wallpaper.  There’s lots of black and white in their collection which has a very Scandinavian feel to it.  The sisters are German but run Lile Sadi from the Netherlands.  Lile Sadi doesn’t have a huge collection, but what they do have is a distinct aesthetic which is simple, stylish, minimal and very appealing to anyone who likes a bit of beauty in their everyday objects.

Hello from India

April 11, 2014

"pink tutu girls"

We are away on holiday in India and we have mostly been eating, spending lots of time together with my family, soaking up the hot, hot, hot sunshine and eating some more. 

"family time ebabee india""family time in India ebabee""Anya family trip India""family time ebabee"Because we are all so spread out – my mum in India, my brother and sister-in-law in the States and us in London – we don’t manage to get together as often as we would like.  But because of this, our meetings feel even more special when they happen.   And with Anya being the only child around, she gets so spoiled – today she indulged in two desserts after lunch thanks to my brother!  I’ve been sharing a few of our photos over on instagram and so thought I would share a few here too. 

Wishing you a wonderful weekend full of lots of family time.

"bunny soft toys bunny plush"

With Easter coming up you can’t move for bunnies.  Even though they’re everywhere I still like a stuffed toy bunny  especially because I love how this one animal can be designed to have so many different looks.  I’ve seen cute bunnies, quirky bunnies, funny bunnies and even some slightly sinister looking ones!  So I rounded up some of my current favourite bunny soft toys and while no two are even slightly alike, they’ve all got lots of charm.  Which one do you like best?

1.  cuddling rabbit…  2.  spotty bunny…  3.  tall long-eared bunnies…  4.  pretty girl bunny…  5.  quirky denim bunny…  6.  cute brown Easter bunny.

"black & white kids room ideas"

I know that black and white kids decor isn’t for everyone but I am a big fan.  So if you are a fan like me then this new Dutch shop is for you.  En Las Nubes does some of the cutest black and white posters, wall stickers and decorations for kiddies as well as some adorable tees.  There are lots of stars, triangles, clouds and raindrops featured on a range of goodies, all in black and white but sometimes with a hint of pink or grey.  I’m especially loving those sweet posters that have happy little thoughts printed on them.
