Soft must-haves for the newborn baby

Hey everyone!

A quick hello before the baby is born, while I'm lying in pure whale style on my couch, dreaming about ice cream, swimming pools, the fresh sea breeze, even snowy mountains and anything else cold to kill this damn heat (excuse moi)! I have been doing my wishlist of must-haves for the baby and his room, which I thought I would share with you guys. 

First of all, I am thinking soft, softer, softest, simple and quirky - clean lines with dashes of color, things that will last and keep him interested for years, because we won't be having another kid to pass it on to.... at least it is not in our plans! And no, we still don't have anything prepared... In my first pregnancy I had everything ready when I was like 5 months pregnant! What happened? When does the nesting syndrome kick in? This second pregnancy has really skipped my mind... Oh well, at least the wishlist is done and we'll take it from there ;)

Must-haves for the newborn baby - Soft toys and cushions
1. Little Pop Studio Batboy pillowcase 2. Adairs Trouble Maker pillowcase 3. Adairs Monster Cushion 4. The Lazy Jellyfish Guitar rattle 5. Henry & Co Alphabet pillowcase 6. Toucan Dream On pillowcase7. Adairs Lone Bandit Cushion

Coolest kids' swimwear for summer 2015!

Oh, I am so enjoying a bit of me-and-my-big-fat-tummy-time here on my almost-maternity leave, having time to read, do yoga and even watch an occasional movie! I haven't had that since my last maternity leave 4 years ago. Very big stuff!

So lately I am just seeing the coolest swimwear for kids everywhere I look and so I thought I'd better share some of my finds with you, since this has not at all been an easy task for me other years. I always seem to find them being too boring, too hula hula, too girlish or boyish and with the same flower print, marine theme or palm trees every year (this goes for adult sizes too!) and which has never been me (I take black with me to my grave). 

Coolest kids' swimwear for summer 2015! - Nununu Plus swimsuit
Awesome Nununu Plus swimsuit found in Fourmonkeys

But the kids market has definitely started to get a little more interesting these last couple of years, first of all, with the more original and experimenting brands amplifying their collections of quirky designs to swimwear without this necessarily having to be the typical summer prints, here I am thinking obvious brands like Gardner and the Gang or Beau LOves and also Mini Rodini who always makes the cutest swimwear.

But then there are all of these super cool and surprising new brands with a specific focus on high quality, sunsafe swimwear with fun and unique designs like the Spanish brand Dosydos, the Dutch brand Beach and Bandit and of course Little Creative Factory from my present hometown, Barcelona. 

Here is a little mix of the ones I love the most:

Coolest kids' swimwear for summer 2015! - Beach and Bandit
New Dutch brand to watch: Beach and Bandit - Check out their online shop

Coolest kids' swimwear for summer 2015! - Beau Loves Feather swimsuit
Absolutely LOVE this feathers swimsuit by Beau LOves found in CozyKidz

Coolest kids' swimwear for summer 2015! - Spanish brand Dosydos
New brand: Dosydos - Fun, functional and sun safe designer swimwear from the south of Spain

Coolest kids' swimwear for summer 2015! - Gardner and the Gang Patsy swimsuit
I adore Gardner and the Gang! This Patsy swimsuit found in  Mini X Style is just too good!!!

Coolest kids' swimwear for summer 2015! - Mini Rodini and Popupshop
Mini Rodini Cat swimsuit and Fishes baby swimpant both found in Cissy Wears and the beautiful Popupshop Earth swimsuit in Stars in a Jar

Coolest kids' swimwear for summer 2015! - Little Creative Factory
Little Creative Factory makes some of the most stylish swimwear in the world! Their incredible new collection can be found in Orange Mayonnaise

So what do you think? You are of course very welcome to add more favorites to the list to help out the other mommies ;) I have had a difficult time in finding something really cool for boys which for me usually is the easiest part, so any suggestions?

KID on maternity leave!

Hey everybody,

I have not been very active on the blog lately, and it is with very mixed feelings that I am writing this post. Everything has just been a little overwhelming these last months, with a massive amount of work in the store and me being almost too pregnant now! Working at home is a great privilege to be able to be more present in the life of your family, but it also results in a difficulty to separate your professional life and staying up at crazy hours trying to get some actual concentrated work done. Maintaining the blog has been a little too much for me lately, so I have decided that the best thing is to take a break/maternity leave from it, cause hey... I am not Wonder Woman and even though I would really love to, I have to tell my self that I can't do it all.

The blog is a wonderful way for me to share all the fun, quirky, crazy and just really cool kids fashion brands and their awesome collections that I discover though research and most importantly through the great emails I get from all of you. Please do not hesitate to continue writing me and I'll try to give a shout through my Pinterest, Facebook or Instagram in the meantime. Can't take a cold turkey from it it all, right!

I might also do a couple of posts during the first couple of months of the life of my new baby boy (we still don't have a name for him! Heeeeelp!!!) to show you all the little wonder. I will try to get back on track as soon as possible, but in the meantime I just want to enjoy intensely the last time I have with O. before she becomes a big sister! Like yesterday when she was jumping around in our bed:

Sneak Peek: Lot801 SS15 collection "Boombox Babes"

Last summer we discovered the exciting kidswear brand Lot801 with their super cool, organic leggings and accessories (check out their previous collection here). We now have the privilege to get a little sneak peek of what is in store for when they launch their new collection this 23rd of March ;)

The founder Lindsay White explains: "Our SS15 Boombox Babes collection was inspired by the 90's with a twist. Remember the days you'd walk down the street and see the cool kids with a boom box on their shoulder? Well, we wanted to bring that back. 
Our first drop we focused on bright yummy colors with touches of black to add a pop of color to the kids wardrobe. Pair it with a flannel shirt tied around the waste and you've got a walking cool kid. Our second drop was focused on dark grunge blacks with a pop of color here and there. We added a white honeycomb print to help cool it down a bit." 

Tops by LB Brand and the boombox is from Berlin Boombox.
