Okay, Thanksgiving is almost here and I could not resist these beautiful and delicious looking cookies. I think you all know by now that I am kind of a cookie fanatic. See here and here. And I thought I would post these a little early so you might actually be able to get what you need together to make them. Let me know if you do try one of these recipes. If you take a photo, I will post it on our Facebook page!
Have a great weekend!
Finally an incredibly fun space for kids at a hospital that heals them through art and play! This has been a long time coming and such a revolution in healing and one of the most inspiring art projects I’ve seen in a while.
Cottrell and Vermeulen architects, designer Morag Myerscough, Nexus and Chris O’Shea all worked together to transport children to an interactive woodland world with their new activity space at the Royal London hospital. Chris O’Shea, the artist and interaction designer, has collaborated with digital production company, Nexus Interactive Arts, to create ‘Woodland Wiggle’, an innovative interactive installation at Europe’s newest hospital, The Royal London, which helps children benefit from the healing powers of art and play.
Okay, so this is seriously cool and ingenious. These roadmap tees by Bky Kid are designed to attract your little ones give you a back massage while you just chill out. What a fabulous way to get a rest, a massage and keep the kids busy playing, all at the same time. I just asked Oona if she would like to play on this shirt and she said, “Yes”! Looks, like I have one in my future. But I wonder how relaxing it will be if the girls fight over it…
I went to the Desigual Spring 2014 showing a couple of days ago and I thought I’d share some of the colorful and oh-so-wonderful things they have in store for us – not only for the kids, but for the ladies too. The showing was in a rustic loft in midtown, and exquisitely designed with artistic touches everywhere.
All the pieces will be available at Desigual online and in their stores come February 2014!
We are crazy about dollhouses and you won’t find a more incredible and original collection than right here!
On the 11 November 2013, 20 of the world’s best contemporary architects and designers’ creations went under the hammer with their version of A Dolls’ House in an exhibition and auction at Bonhams in aid of KIDS. The project was curated by Cathedral Group, an innovative property developer and they raised over £90,000. What a wonderful cause that all of these architects put their heart and time into.
KIDS is a UK charity supporting disabled children, young people and their families. They run home learning programs, specialist nurseries, short-break programs for disabled children and a series of inclusive adventure playgrounds. They offer a wide variety of services to parents of children with disabilities and programs for siblings of disabled children and young carers.

It took me ten years living in New York to finally buy a black fall coat. Coming from a sunshine state I was use to wearing clothes with color and print, happy clothes my co-workers would exclaimed. I would say that now I have a balance wardrobe of neutrals and prints. The solid palette works longer and if you know me you may notice I wear the same things over and over for I just tend to rework my wardrobe with great pieces that have multiple uses. I also like no fuss cuts but with a twist in the design department. Which is why I love the top from Zara with the leather pockets. I’d wear that to work with a leather skirt and jeans on a Saturday morning. I am a sucker for the printed jean, I love that they bring a wardrobe up a notch and find them perfect for moms since they are quite comfortable. The leopard coat is perfect if most of your wardrobe consists of solid-classic pieces for this coat is fun yet chic. I am a believer in the hat and I’m thinking of getting a more dressier version of the baseball hat I wear any chance I get. The navy Baggu tote is perfect for all year round and the gap boot, $100? Finally a well made boot that isn’t $400 plus.
I just had to share this. It just hit such a chord. And whether you are a ballet lover, or a New Yorker or not, I think it will affect you too.
Filmed at sunrise on the 57th floor of 4 World Trade Center in lower Manhattan, this short film captures an extraordinary and moving performance of Christopher Wheeldon’s After the Rain. It is a testament to the resilience of the human spirit, and a tribute to the future of the city that New York City Ballet calls home. Beautifully shot and created.
Happy Friday! Now that the weather’s getting cooler, it means more and more time inside. Luckily, we’ve got a fun craft to pass those hours indoors… these adorable little girls! Such a simple DIY, but the results are so sweet! You can even take your creative license and try making animals, using different materials, etc… The possibilities are endless! View the full tutorial here.
Have a great weekend wherever you are in the world!
The Trench: How divine is this jacket? Cropped at the hip, it’s a fresh take on the classic trench. We’re swooning over all the details: the buckles, the trim, the pockets… Just lovely! Grab this beautiful Burberry jacket here.
A few weeks ago, we posted our favourite fall jackets for kids. And guess what? It’s your turn, Moms! We know you’re busy, but you most definitely deserve to treat yourself.
