… this colouring roll for kids – this would be perfect to put up when we have our next family trip to a remote summer house
I have recently come across a lovely online store in the UK called Little Scout. It is catered for little boys. And their products are just wonderful. I could purchase everything in this store for my sons. But if I had to narrow it down, here’s my top picks.
For the times we need to sit still and play quietly (eg. enroute to a new location):
My darling #1 son is almost 6 and currently his birthday list consists only of lego items. While we will happily give in to his lego wishes, we would love to buy some other pieces that he would be equally excited about. Other than lego he loves the beach, swimming, music and funky fashion pieces. When I came across Sunuva, I was instantly excited. Not only do they stock incredibly cool stuff for kids, their story captures my heart. Created by two British Mums who met holidaying who were bored with the usual prints and colours, they instead decided to work with Boho styles and funky graphics. Their products are popular by gorgeous celeb Moms such as Gwyneth Paltrow and are stocked in major British boutiques. Now they’re online and shipping internationally (I was also excited to do my first European collaboration!*)
Back to #1, for his 6th birthday, I picked out the following items:
A pair of machine washable, quick drying, UV protected swim shorts (these are the softest swim shorts I’ve ever found!)
A funky, cotton tee (the cotton is just lovely, especially for these hot days)
And a pair of camo printed anti-fog goggles
(these are just super cool, my son just can’t wait to jump in the pool, great motivation for new swimmers!)
Other items I loved for him:
He shouldn’t be the only one with aviators
Perfect for all our travel, my music lover can plug himself in!
Of course I couldn’t help but peek at the girls and womens section:
Adorable nappy pants perfect for toddlers
The most exciting thing though is that Sunuva is offering one lucky reader £250 worth of chic UV Sunuva swimwear! Simply click on this link, fill out your details and you’re in the running to win!

no better way to turn the kids heads (and maybe raise their eyebrows!) when they leave the classroom

Who says just because they’re heading back to school kids are the only ones allowed to get new purses? I say no! A Mommy needs a back to school purse too!
Here’s my back to school picks,
One of the reasons I was so enthusiastic about our move to Scandinavia was because every product that I’ve come across made in this part of the world – particularly for children – are so beautiful, innovative and of good quality. And with #1′s 5th birthday fast approaching, I felt it time to do a little shopping…
And don’t even get me started on the kids clothes here… actually a post is forthcoming!
I was always told that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I agree. I also love how our breakfasts can last well over an hour, especially as the kids are waking up at the crack of dawn and we have no where we really need to be. Oh well, once school starts that will all change. Better make the most of it!
On a side note, how great are these tea sets? I purchased this for #1′s second birthday and they’ve been one of the most popular toys we own.
It’s quite a milestone when your child first enters organised sport. #1 is playing T Ball this Spring and I find it hilarious. 10 kids running after one ball, my son hitting the ball and running after it to retrieve it, coaches chasing after kids who are aiming bats their size at their playmates heads…. but it’s so much fun. And he loves it. That’s the best part!
