Quotes mood

06/10/2015

We always liked quotes, even before it was a trend, so you can imagine that we are very happy this trend goes on in kids fashion. Personalised, funny or just inspirational quotes, we love them all! Hope this gives you some inspiration for your Autumn/Winter shopping!

Some brands are masters in bold statements like Hugo Loves Tiki, a unisex brand that is inspired by the European lifestyle. Mille is wearing their black and white ‘bébe’ romper and a chill pants from baby Zara.

Short words are often a strong message, we love oversized graphics and words on a simple style. This sweater is from Kiabi, a french affordable brand. Not everything is to our taste but if you do a good search, You’ll find great pieces.

Personalised items are our favourite! See our post on a great way to announce your pregnancy by Ego Maniac. They do all kind of styles from rompers, to t-shirts, to sweaters, even swimwear with your baby name and your telephone number (we put a line on the swim short so our number is unrecognisable), is a life saver if your child get lost on the beach. (never leave your kid out of your sight, but you never know, their tiny feet can be very fast) But for now that’s not a problem yet, still Mille rocked his baby bum by the pool.

We sure love this brand, Mille has a sleeping bag with a personalised quote on it so all his dreams can come true! The future MILLE ionaire… 🙂

Jeans short mood

02/10/2015

A lot of peeps ask about my outfits on instagram. I’ll be breaking down my looks for you in moodboards. Hope you like what you see 😉

Babies in overall shorts are the cutest! This jeans short with suspenders is a must have basic for summer or in the winter with high knee socks. And for baby girls, wear them in the winter with some tights underneath.

Several brands have them in their collection. Mille’s one is from La Redoute.

ALL-ABOARDgoed

You can match them with any color you like. That’s the beauty of denim pieces. Keep it clean and classy with light and earthy colors, cool in monochroom or happy baby in bright. Mille is wearing it with an electric blue Petit Bateau romper polo. The Bomber jacket is from Tommy Hilfiger.

What’s in our flying diaper bag?

10/09/2015

This is about what works for us when we travel by plane. We always find ourselves with a cramped diaper bag even when we are not taking a plane. Our mission was clear for travelling we needed a huge bag that won’t contain just the baby essentials, but also our basic personal stuff. Most Belgian airlines do not allow extra hand luggage when travelling with babies.

After a long search and unfortunately some bad buys, we found a perfect big bag for that: the Elodie Details StrollerShopper in Graphic Grace. It’s huge and has a wide shoulder strap, so if you stuff it, it doesn’t hurt your shoulder, not even on your bear skin. It is washable, that was a key point for us, because travelling means getting your bag dirty!

If you cramp up your bag, you need a system. Working with different pouches, every pouch has a different print so I could easily find the right one in no time. The toys were tossed loose inside, for some extra surprise effect on Mille when I grabbed something from the bottom of the bag.

A must have for us on holiday is Mille’s dream sheep, we call her Eva Mouton, she makes white noise, plays classical music and gives light. Perfect to snooze the trip away!

Create a checklist, so you don’t forget the essentials and the extra’s! Read our post about making a checklist like a pro!

OFFICIAL PAPER POUCH

Don’t forget a pouch with official papers like a kidsID, child booklet, medical card, etc.

TOYS

detailtoys 

Like we already said toys are loose in the bag, this worked better for us. 1 Sophie la Girafe, great for chewing and she looks so pretty and is from Paris, trop chic! 2 Rings and rattles are always good to have around, Mille is happy to grab them. 3 Mille loves these kind of musical books, this Rhyme and discovery book is from Vtech4 We love the Done by Deer brand, they make beautiful toys who are very stylish. Mille loves to put these Zoopreme Safari friend in his mouth 🙂 5 Also a winner is a soft book, this one from Fisher Price has a rattle attached, get’s his attention every time.

CHANGING POUCH

6 Pretty Pouch by Cabbages & Roses, they have great house wear. 7 Pretty essential wipes for that little booty, make sure you bring your regular brand and don’t try out new brand on holiday, travel size is enough 8 Changing cushion, ours is black and beautiful! This one from Lässig is washable and foldable and folds like a A5 book with Velcro. 9 For us a must have for on the go, Cytelium spray, this diaper rash cream, comes in a spray, so no need to dirty your fingers, just shake the bottle and spray. You will thank me when your in that small airplane cabin changing your little one! 10 Same as the wipes, diapers are pretty essential when you travel and take enough for the journey and your arrival. The rest you can buy the next day in a local supermarket. Always fun to have foreign language diapers and wipes, makes changing a dirty one so much more fun! 😉 Don’t forget some plastic bags. Carry a variety of sizes for storing soiled diapers, clothes, and blankets.

FEEDING POUCH

Bring more than double than you need baby formula, your baby has to drink at take off and landing. 11 This milk powder dispenser from Bojungle is lean, AOK pretty and can hold up to 4 feedings. 12 We took 5 feeding bottles with us, filled with Evian water. Mille gets cramps from other brands, so we didn’t want to gamble. You can easily get through customs if the water is in a feeding bottle and meant for your baby. They will poor out some of the liquid to see if it is actually water. 13 Feeding tote bag  from Black Balloon, our family favourite brand (du-uh), this came in handy in the plane, we just had to put some essentials in this one along with the feeding bottles, so we didn’t had to get up every 5 seconds. Also on holiday, this was a good alternative to the big bag for small walks. 14 Bring lot’s of bibs, you never know how your baby reacts in the air. Muslin cloths is also a good thing to bring, Mille likes to sleep hugging one (so cute), but this also comes in handy for burping accidents.

TOILETRY POUCH

15 Don’t forget your baby’s sunglasses, they are essential! Most of the time you need them right away after landing, so keep them near. I searched for a long time for a baby wayfarer model, but I don’t think they make them for small babies. If anyone knows a brand who does, please leave a comment. 16 Don’t forget some gum or mints for take off or landing. 17 Hand sanitizer is an alternative to hand washing with soap and water. Babies touch everything, so keep your hands and his/her hands germ free. 18 Essential kleenex for travelling with or without a baby. 19 Bring extra pacifiers. We didn’t loose one, but in case we would we had 4 extra! (Mille is very picky on that) 20 Lip balm for you and your baby, We are an organic lovers family, so Dr. organic is a perfect brand for us. This balm has a SPF 15 and smells like coconut, perfect to set the holiday mood. 21 Remember that song, ‘always wear sunscreen’, handy to have right before arrival, put it on you and your baby. 22 An essential for us, Digemel sirop, we took it with us in our hand luggage in a travel container. We dip his pacifier in it and silence is with us! 😉 23 pocket size face and hand wipes. These Biolane organic wipes are skin friendly and toxic free.

EXTRA CLOTHES POUCH

24 This large fabric pouch from 3 suisses is perfect for spare clothes on the go. Bring extra rompers and extra outfits, don’t forget to put on an lighter outfit before landing, so your baby is ready to rumble the tropical temperature! You don’t want to smell like baby puke the whole plane ride.Don’t forget those large poncho’s or scarfs, they come in handy during flight and on holiday. Last but not least choose your baby’s sun hat carefully. The ones with a back flap gives your baby more protection from sun and wind.  We went for the Flap hat from the Flap Happy brand this hat has an 50 UPF+

Cool way to announce your pregnancy

14/04/2015

A great way to announce a pregnancy to family and/or close friends is to make personalised gifts on baby rompers. Surprise them with a personal text or image and wait for their shocked reaction! (make sure you have a camera on hands 😉 The best thing about it they can keep it till the baby is out of the womb and after that the little one can wear it and make them super proud.

For this my mums contacted Egomaniacs, I love what these 2 sisters do and, they’ve been friends for years. The best part is that they can start from scratch or you can give them some ideas to work with.

My first outfits

30/03/2015

motor jacket

Here’s a preview of my first outfits. As a music fan (I heard a lot of womb beats) a motor jacket romper seems the appropriate outfit to start. Not in traditional black, but in sweatpants grey for a more relax and playfull look.

my 2 rompers are from laredoute.be

It’s a huge trend to wear typography on your chest. From funny phrases to life quotes or just to let people know what you stand for. I’m going for the truth!

Don’t forget your accessories, it will make or break your outfit. My first and definitely not my last beanie, I’m going for black and white arrows. Easy to mix and match. The shoes are a true fashion statement. Who said that only girls could wear leopard?? Print is the new it for boys, so go for it!

Needless to say it will all look even better with me in it! 😉
