Preparing Violet for School

Preparing Violet for Schoolfeatured

I am now mum to a school aged child.  I find this really astounding that I have a child who goes to school!  It doesn’t seem that long ago that I was at school, but time flies and here we are! Over the summer Joe and I spent a lot of time carefully and gently Read more

Reusable Swim Nappies on Holiday

Reusable Swim Nappies on Holidayfeatured

While we were preparing everything for our holiday in Spain I had to decide what to do about swim nappies. Our villa had a pool and we were by the sea so there was bound to be plenty of opportunities to go swimming. The thought of packing loads of disposable swim nappies was off putting Read more

Kids’ Room Decorating Ideasfeatured

Now that Ezra is sleeping through the night (praise the Lord!) we are starting to think about putting him in the same room as Violet.  Since we moved here we have replastered the bedrooms, painted and laid new carpets but the rooms are still quite generic and impersonal.  I would really like to decorate their room Read more

Christmas Begins with the Scandinavian Christmas Market

Christmas Begins with the Scandinavian Christmas Marketfeatured

Christmas started early for me this week with the wonderful annual Scandinavian Christmas street market on Albion Street in London.  This market has been going for about 10 years now and this year was the biggest yet.  Stalls selling Norwegian knitwear, Swedish seeded rye bread with scrumptious smoked salmon pate, Estonian warming fast food and Read more

Where are all the Boy’s Leggings?

Where are all the Boy’s Leggings?featured

As I’ve said previously, I am quite particular about what the children wear.  Not from a point of view that I want them to look fashionable… I’m not particularly on-trend myself!  First and foremost I want them to be comfortable.  I see so many kids clothes which have bits sticking out, are hard and unforgiving or Read more

Scandi not Scandi #3featured

What have these little tykes been wearing this week? Well Violet chose her own clothes on Sunday and I think she picked really well: The dress is from M&S last year. I just love the stencilled elephants. Again, not strictly Scandi, I think the elephants would be a bit more rounded and chunkier if it was Read more

Scandi not Scandi #2featured

Today Violet is wearing one of my favourite outfits on her. I’ll be bummed when she grows out of this. It’s Mini Club at Boots and I got it last year. It caught my eye because of the bold and colourful repetitive print which I just love. It’s not Scandi but as good as in Read more

Charity shop findsfeatured

I’ve recently discovered the treasure troves that charity shops can be. In truth I hadn’t really rifled through many before moving here.  But the ones in our little high street are stuffed full of gems. I had been looking for playdoh and cookie cutters for ages. I was a bit blah about the ones online Read more

Scandi not scandifeatured

I am half Finnish half British and I LOVE Scandinavian design. I would love to bring the cool Scandi touch into our house as we renovate but right now my obsession is with Scandi clothes. And seeing as I hardly buy myself any clothes these days that means I love Scandi kids clothes. Particular favourites Read more
