bowties & boys

We have had some difficulty finding any shops that sell little ties/bowties for boy.

New to booqi

Little boy bowties.

Perfect for jazzing up those little shirts or even better teamed with a white tee.

Super long velcro strips means there is plenty of room to grow.

Pick yours up in store today.

Mit-ten [mit-n]


a hand covering enclosing the four fingers together and the thumb separately.
mitt def. 4 .

We're cold here in Australia, our fingers are cold.. gloves tend to restrict us to no end, try opening a packet or flipping a page with those things covering your cute little fingers -- enter: Mittens.

No need to EVER take them off.. well, you know what I mean.

Of course lets not forget the men folk, they have just as much need for snuggly fingers - have you ever tried taking out the rubbish in the middle of winter? Cold!

These mittens can be found here at Wavoki.

Also, of course the kidlings need some, because we really don't want those chubby little sausages to turn purple.

but really if its just too cold, why not roast your fingers near a toasty fire.. or take a trip to the other hemisphere..

{for Mum, from Jess}

My Mum's favourite colour is green. Growing up I can remember her endlessly wearing

1. her green turtle neck skivvy.
2. her green tracksuit pants.
Perhaps even together..right Mum?
(if you question her she will completely and utterly deny that green is her absolute fave, but we all know it is)

(incidentally I couldn't find a picture of Mum wearing green, I'm going to put this down to our old computer crashing 6 months ago//meaning the pics we have at the moment are only mostly recent.)

What I did find, however, are some great green things to buy.

For some reason this dress reminds me of Melbourne, I just love the mottled greens.
And it is even made from gorgeous hemp, check it out here at Edna and Wilhemina .

Military (so I've heard) is back in this season so this bag from packs & totes is perfect to pair with some trendy military inspired outfits.
Love the army green in this. Love this shop in general.

Finally, this has got to be the most exciting discovery I have made of late - felt slippers from Kadabros

All I can say is, I am just coveting them.

I know green has been given a bad rap in the past, but it really is nice to see all the lush green winter vegetation popping up her in Aus. 

Happy winter everybody.

Today is a good day.

The shower was cold, the tap water from the bath is always hot.
So we had a bath instead.

Boy sat and crossed his cute chubby legs for the first time and it made me love him even more.

Then he sang me a song of gobbldeygook and again my heart swelled.

I remembered it wont be long until some scarves, I ordered, from Megans Menagerie
will come in the post - ready to protect my neck from the cold winter chills.

I ordered some TOMS.

for our cold wintered toes and some for someone else who needs them.
(it really is a beautiful thing)

& today we will be off to pick up some special surprises which will be coming to the store soon.

NEW polaroid prop, coming soon.

Ok, Ok, ok.. so clearly we have been having just too much fun with this.

 seriously, why wouldn't we though?

Made from super strong plexi-glass, we chose to write on this baby with permanent marker (took some time trying to figure out how to remove it) and then settled for normal white board markers, just wipe clean when you're finished for a new caption.

Pick up your life sized polaroid prop in store soon... ish..

Oh and buon compleanno, its italian ..for yogurt..   ;)

Ollie & Lime

In our house we have a leander

It is really hard to find good sheet sets for this cot as the shape is a bit different to most cots and the mattress is oval.

BUT then we found...

we LOVE the george collection & its pop of green.

Best of all they are now available in Australia!
