When I need to go somewhere, I try to avoid the car as much as possible, because I live in the center of our city. When the weather allows it, I always go out with our Bugaboo Donkey. The boys sit comfortably and big sis loves to go with her new bike. A couple of days ago, we went to do some shopping. Since we are rebuilding our house as we speak and my husband is always working outside, I cannot leave any of the kids at home, ever. Of course, that is not so bad, but when trying on new jeans it can be tricky if one kid escapes in the shop window, haha! Anyways, I always take my One Duo diaper backpack with me and it has changed my life! I have my hands free to juggle the kids at all times. Backpacks are so on trend today and in silver it is even more fashion forward. Oh and how about our new jackets? The boys are wearing cute khaki rain coats from Iglo & Indi, and the best I Dig Denim Jeans we got at Toddlers & Tees. Of course this mama wants to match with her little guys so when I saw this khaki I Dig Denim bomber from Toddlers & Tees I knew I had to have it. I actually was looking for a bomber for a long time, it is a must have for this season and Yves Saint Laurent, Acnestudios, Phillip Lim etc. are all doing their version. The I Dig Denim one is classic and just perfection.

Jerome is my second baby and he is so special in many ways. He is the sweetest and kindest soul, he cuddles and gives 100 kisses a day without me even asking. His brother and sister are his best friends and when mama has to punish one of them because they did something wrong, he always comes in to defend them. But lately though, Jerome has been pushing my buttons… as sweet as he can be, as angry and hot tempered he can be a minute later. Jerome is 3 and although his speaking is rather ok, I think he is learning how to express his emotions and feelings and he gets confused and frustrated when he cannot explain it fast or correct enough. I know it is just a phase of course, but any tips for dealing with the tempers of a 3 year old are welcome, haha!
Since Jerome was born, I have always called him ‘my little hero’ and today I still do. Therefor, there couldn’t be a more fitting tee than the “HERO” t-shirt from PopKids! Pop Kids is an eclectic and exuberant collection of graphic tees for babies and kids. With a style that is bold and colorful, and a focus on playful typography, their designs run the gamut from whimsical and sweet … to clever and cool. For Pop Kids, the little blank t-shirt is nothing less than the perfect artist’s canvas! We have also found a super cool cushion to chill… It’s our new fave pillow from Into The Fold, so soft and biiiig!!

My boys are obsessed with Lilou’s bed. At this point, she’s the only one with a “big” bed and I think it might be just that what intrigues her brothers, ha! Our kiddos are hardly ever allowed to go on the Ipad, but when they are, it’s like they are in heaven! Add the coziness and warmth of the big bed and we have the perfect Saturday morning for my littles. We decided to lounge and chill in style in clothes from Pretty Blue Fox and of course a bit of twinning never hurt. I recently stumbled upon Pretty Blue Fox. I already read about this beautiful brand in Milk Magazine and that made me very curious. Pretty Blue Fox is a stylish children’s wear brand that focuses on clean lines and bold designs. The illustrations are very elegant yet joyful and include beautiful little animals that inhabit the children’s world. Pretty Blue Fox is about children’s fashion, but there’s also a range of art prints for kids to enjoy and decorate their world with. And that is exactly what we did in the kids’ room. The designer of Pretty Blue Fox even made a fun headband for Lilou. At this point they are not for sale just yet, but I’ve been told that they are working on it! So watch this space!
Onze jongens zijn geobsedeerd door Lilou’s bed. Op dit moment is zij namelijk de enige met een “groot” bed en ik denk dat haar bed daarom zo geweldig is voor de broers! Onze kids mogen niet vaak op de Ipad, maar als het een keertje mag, lijkt het of ze op de hemel beland zijn, haha! Doe daar nog de gezelligheid en de warmte bij, allemaal samen op het grote bed, en we hebben de perfecte zaterdagochtend voor onze kleintjes. We chillen wel in stijl in kledij van Pretty Blue Fox en natuurlijk kan een beetje matchen geen kwaad. Ik kwam recent dit merk Pretty Blue Fox tegen in Milk Magazine en ik was nieuwsgierig. Het is een kinderkledingmerk dat focust op cleane lijnen en gedurfde ontwerpen. De illustraties zijn heel elegant maar tegelijkertijd ook vrolijk. Het zijn mooie kleine diertjes die vaak terugkomen in de kinderwereld. Pretty Blue Fox is vooral kleding, maar ook prints en kussenslopen en poppetjes om de kamers mee te decoreren. En dat is exact wat we deden in de kinderkamer. De ontwerpster van Pretty Blue Fox maakte zelfs een speciale diadeem voor Lilou. Deze zijn op dit moment nog niet te koop, maar ze zijn er volop aan aan het werken. So watch this space!
