Things I Love | Little Cloud by Friends With You

Being a long time fan of the art collective Friends With You, I couldn't miss blogging about this incredible cute little lamp. Little Cloud is a limited-edition lamp with two different light intensities: cool white and warm white. It includes rechargeable battery or can be plugged into mains, and comes with an European two pin plug. This is is a lamp I think the whole family would fight to have, and as soon as I have saved a bit of mullah, we might just get one!

NEWS | Mini Rodini - Quel Carousel Drop II

It's been a busy few days lately with photography work so there haven't been much time to update the blog, but how could I forget about Mini Rodini's second Drop?! The very popular Swedish label has just landed in stores and a lot of cool prints are in this drop. The tiger bomber jacket is simply awesome and the pug print gives me the giggles. Plenty of my favourite stores are selling Mini Rodini so there is a great chance the size you are looking for is in any of the store links below.

Moments | Here Comes the Sun

D wears: Denim anorak by Esp no1 / Bird long sleeve by Bobo Choses / Beanie by Vans / Pants by NICO.NICO / Shoes by 10IS

The afternoon sun is magical, especially after a long, windy winter. When Melbourne dishes out sun, you grab it, every little ray! And then you have icy poles and make sure you eat it while the sun warms your cheeks. Then you run around so much that you get too warm for a jacket but not too cold to just wear a long sleeve, and right about then you can tell, that Spring is waiting around the corner.

Moments | A Promise of Spring

M wears: Hoodie by Talc / Hat longsleeve by Bobo Choses / Stockings by Popupshop / Skirt by Finger in the Nose / Shoes by 10IS / Cap by Toykyo Kids.  D wears: Sweatshirt by Bobo Choses / Denims by I Dig Denim / Shoes by Puma / Beanie by Vans / Tote bag by Bobo Choses.

Friday offered warmer weather and lots of sun. M had a day off school so it was the perfect day to take both kids and grandma and grandad and spend outside. It was such a wonderful day and we couldn't believe that it was as warm as 19C, being August it is normally still Winter time so it was such a nice change. We threw rocks in the water, built rock towers, spotted big ships on the horizon, rode on scooters and had lunch in the sun. It was a nice promise of what is to come soon... Spring!

Things I Love | Zip it

Love these zip purses coming this fall from creative genius Donna Wilson. I have had a Baggu purse for a while now and I love it, but wouldn't mind having a back up one as cool as this one.

Close Up | Bobo Choses - A Day in LA

It was a happy mail day today, and our first purchases of the newly released Bobo Choses collection A Day in LA arrived. There is something so wonderfully vintage with all these garments that it is instant love. It is like they have already been worn and loved to the point where it is soft and just perfect to wear.

Both the kids and myself love the prints and there is never any arguments on who gets what because the unisex approach of the prints and colours makes it easy to pass down to the little brother, so we get a lot of wear out of our BC clothes. Here are the links to a couple of our favourites.
