Danish Kids Favourites

  Somewhere between my first and my second baby, I discovered my love for Danish design. Since we’d saved pretty much all our baby stuff the first time round, baby no.2 was fully equipped, which I took as an excuse to invest in a couple of additional high quality pieces, so he wouldn’t just have hand-me-downs.

My Favourite Mummy Beauty Products

As someone who is lucky enough to have been blessed with pretty good if somewhat sensitive skin, I’ve never been in to cosmetics much because I didn’t really need them. Though as I’ve gotten older, I’ve found my skin needing that little bit of extra TLC – and then there are those days when both kids […] Read more…

Picture Books About Snow

This past week, we’ve had our first proper snowfall here in Berlin this winter. We had just enough snow last weekend to go out for a round of sledging, snowball throwing and snowman building, and then a few days ago we had a complete white-out with a proper snowstorm. Sadly, it has since rained and […] Read more…

When Mr Fox was born, fox print everything was still at the height of the kids fashion […] Read more…

The Boy has really taken to his new role with much enthusiasm, showering his little brother with hugs […] Read more…

Favourite Christmas Books

Following on from the post about the charity book store in Berlin earlier this week, I felt it appropriate that this month’s Friday Five would also be about books. With Christmas just a few days away, I would like to share some of our favourite family Christmas books with you, perfect for cuddling up and […] Read more…

Gifts for a New Mum

A little over four years ago, I became a mum for the first time (Edit: and yesterday for the second time!). I remember being flooded with greetings and gifts for the baby, but what I most appreciated within all that were the thoughtful gestures aimed directly at me and not just the baby. Because even […] Read more…

Books for 4 Year Old Boys

You may have noticed that the blog has received a bit of a makeover this week. This was long overdue and the result of finally moving the blog from Tumblr to WordPress. There are still a few hiccups to iron out that went along with the transition, but I hope you like it! Along with […] Read more…
