Baby Dior, Summer 2015 Collection

July 7th, 2015



Baby Dior Summer 2015 Collection is a burst of color in crisp whites and blues and lollypop pinks and fire engine red. For the girls, the romanticism bursts from every luxury seam and the cuts are simple, classic and some pieces reminiscent of 1940’s movie stars. And the mood is very sophisticated. These little misses have social engagements and serious style business to attend to. For the boys, there is a nice mix of laid back graphic shirts under striking turquoise and toned down grey blazers as only Dior can do.

See the full collection here at Dior.

Edible Sprinkle Bowls For Ice-Cream

June 30th, 2015



What? Edible Sprinkle Bowls for Ice-Cream. Well, I’m always looking for interesting and imaginative ways to serve up ice-cream. The old ice-cream cone is getting a little old, I must say. Of course, the girls are not going to agree with that one as they are completely obsessed with ice-cream cones. But then, what kid isn’t? So, these little dishes made of white chocolate and sprinkles are a fabulous idea, especially for a kid’s birthday. Of course, you can make them with dark chocolate or wait…even mix dark and white. And experiment with other tiny candies mixed in with sprinkles. Actually, the possibilities are endless if you want to experiment and modify. Looks like we’ll have to wait until next year for a Birthday but definitely not waiting that long to experiment with these dessert bowls.

La Mangerie – Kid Friendly Brunch, Paris

June 29th, 2015



La Mangerie, is a family restaurant in the heart of the Marais, in Paris, which now has a kid friendly brunch! And wanted to share this with you all as the “go-to place” to take the kids if you are traveling to Paris this summer.

It’s been four years now that La Mangerie  has been dishing up portions that are shareable, which is great for group meals. And they are getting better and better.

I used to be in the Marais all the time when I was living there, and they had nothing like this. In fact, it was hard to find a specifically kid-friendly restaurant at all. Well, times are a changing in Vieux Paris.

Preschool in Japan Lets Kids Play in Puddles

June 25th, 2015



This new preschool in Japan understands kids and was designed to accumulate puddles so the kids could play in them indoors! Usually when it rains, kids aren’t allowed to play outside, but the new Dai-ichi Yochien in Kumamoto City is designed to make sure the puddles stay exactly where they are. And yes, the kids play in them. And what better way to foster fun and learning than to let kids be kids and to live out their fantasies of having puddles indoors?!
