Bag it up

Currently at the top of my wish list is this vision of a bag.  Looks like Etro but it's actually Zara.  Perfect for daytime, night time, smart, casual, festival, Lego land... what more could you want?

T u l i p C e n t r a l

Tulip time is one of the highlights of my flowery calendar.  Sitting in front of me as I type are the most beautiful mix of tulips - striped, parrots, tall, small - so ridiculously pretty they don't look real.  If you feel like a flowery outing this weekend and don't have the time to go to Holland, Worton organic is the place is the next best thing.

Bobo Choses

I don't think the smallest Cub has one item of new clothing.  Being the third boy, everything is a hand me down.  I obviously exaggerate,  he's been given a lot of divine little creations, but I personally haven't bought a thing.  Apart from maybe a bib or two. 
Two weeks ago I went to Amsterdam to surprise my brother Ned on his 30th birthday.  I had a couple of hours to kill and on the train into the city was directed to the 'Nine Lanes' area for a shop and a potter.   I had a bit of an ignorant view of Amsterdam before I went - clogs, red lights, cheese, maybe a tulip or two.  I now feel rather embarrassed about my naivety and can't wait to go back again and explore properly.

 The children's clothes shops there are like no others I've ever come across - brands I've never even heard of and the coolest, most original designs and styles.  With no suitcase to hand I had to leave empty handed -  though me and Mr Fedex are now becoming firm friends since my return.
Bobo Choses was my favourite discovery;  it's watermelon strewn collection is properly sensational - desperate to get some adult sized pieces.  I yet haven't broached the subject of the pink onesie that's hiding in my office with Chaz, yet.  Boys can wear pink though, no?
