So shopping a great sale could be rewarded...now that is what I like about Fourmonkeys, an reward on top of a reward!

UP CLOSE | MAÁ SHOES



Every once in a while you come across something you feel you really need to show up close. These sneakers from MAÁ shoes are one of those things! 

MAÁ stands for Manuela, Amanda and Antonio: first names of three brother and sisters born and grown up in the middle of the Spanish shoe industry. Sons of entrepreneurs, they decided to make the difference and set new standards in the children shoe industry by creating their own fashion label. Different but similar at the same time, each of them brings his own personality and creativity to the stylish, cool and modern designs. Goodbye boring shapes and fade colors! Hello bold, bright, trendy and colorful designs! 

Handmade in Spain, these super cool sneakers are made out of the softest leather. Now when I say soft I really mean buttery soft! Most sneakers that are made out of leather feel hard, but MAÀ have manged to keep the same softness as suede but it also have the durability that only strong leather has. Comfortable and stylish, they are practical to wear and fasten on the front with laces for tightening and have a zip on the side which makes them easy to slip on. They also have a proper thick sole which offers plenty of support for growing feet.

We had the chance to try out these El Dorado sneakers and before we take them through the urban landscape I wanted to make sure you saw them in their pristine glory! You can find these and more models in Australia over at Buckets and Spades who ship worldwide and also have them in store now.

Moments | Beach Bound


Winter is sneaking up on us. It tricks us with some warmer days in between but it is pretty clear that a new season is upon us. The wind is cooler and the best bet is to bring a warm hoodie where ever you go these days. Even though the weather offers cooler days there simply is no day you refuse an ice-cream when you are a kid... 

We took in the views, drew in the sand and soaked up the beauty of this coastline. The magnificent views of Cape Woolamai is etched in our memories. The vast beaches, the vivid colours of the ocean and the endless waves that seem to bring out the best in all the surfers. 

We could have stayed here forever...

Moments | Beach Life

M wears: Mint Ship Dress by Kukukid / Black Dino Hoodie by Kukukid
D wears:
Navy Dino Hoodie by Kukukid / Octopus Tee by Kukukid / Mint Ship baggy Pants by Kukukid

Sun, sand, blue sky and with the ocean as backdrop this has been the summers best hang out place. There is nothing better than digging your toes into warm sand and finding a stick and instantly you have the biggest drawing pad in front of you. We love coming down to the beach as I am sure you know by now. It is the best baby sitter as you can perch on the sand dunes with a coffee in hand and just watch them go wild. Loud voices, big jumps and giggles and nobody to tell you off. These lovely soft threads from Kukukid is the perfect beach attire. I love the mint colour in this seasons collection and it is such a great colour for both boys and girls. In fact most items works just as well on boys as on girls because the prints are also unisex.

What you can't see in the photos is the lovely stretch these clothes have. They have such a good fit and because of the nice 5 % spandex content it means your kids can wear it for a longer period of time as they are growing. The great Dino hoodies have been a favourite for a while in our house. Again, both my boy and girl are equally happy for this one and it has... hands down the coolest silhouette ever!
