The cutest woven baby baskets by Design Dua

if i had known about these awesome handwoven moses baskets from Ghana before Axel was born i would have ordered one in a nano second! he is now of course far too big to fit into any normal sized basket, but i would even consider getting one just to keep…

fun fair print

Cute prints & things for kids

at the moment’s Axel’s nursery is a work in progress – which is why i haven’t shared any photos! he’s been sleeping in our room since he was born, which means his room is mainly for storage and the occasional nappy change (we mainly use a changing pad in our bedroom).…

Jujubunny

i had a rare few hours to myself this morning and so decided to go browse around the shops. and everywhere i went – h&m, Zara, Cotton On… i went straight to the kid’s section. i’ve lost almost all interest in clothes for myself (maybe cause i can only fit…

Playtime

one of the things that modern parents have to grapple with is how much screentime to allow your kids, and it’s something i think about often considering that i am absolutely unashamedly addicted to my phone. i mean, i have been kind of addicted to the internet since our first…

Kids ❤ Animals

Kids ❤️ Animals

one thing i’m really excited about is introducing Axel to animals. i mean, right now he can barely recognise my face let alone appreciate how cute a kitten is – but before we know it he’ll be picking out his first puppy… and it’s highly possible i might be more excited…

Nido Kids

there’s nothing cuter than a kiddo wearing a hand-knitted jersey, especially if it’s been made by someone special like mom or granny. if you don’t have any knitters in the family perhaps check out the new nido kids AW16 range. see my previous posts about nido here.

Axie

Welcome Axel

we welcomed our son Axel Anton Visser on Tuesday 10 May. he wasn’t breathing on his own when he arrived and had to be transferred to a specialised NICU at a hospital across town where he stayed for a week. needless to say it was a harrowing time for us. staying…

Baby Blanket

Baby Things

above: kaleidoscope cloud blanket. forgive me, for i am not in my right mind. i am a broody, anxiously waiting mom-to-be. i can’t stop thinking about babies. our baby. we are only a month away from welcoming the little dude, so i’m awake at 2am googling “do i REALLY need a changing table?”…

Jorey Hurley

Jorey Hurley

we won’t be doing a nursery initially, as the kiddo is just going to sleep in our room for the first few months. we would only just have moved into our new house by the time he arrives, so i’d want to figure out the space before settling on who sleeps where (needless…

Bobo Choses

Bobo Choses: Der Blaue Reiter

i know i’m supposed to be imagining how cute my little dude would look in these duds, but truth is i want adult sizes please! Bobo Choses is a renowned Spanish brand of super cool kidswear, and their new exclusive SS16 range is inspired by artists like Matisse, Picasso and Hockney. you…

Mama Bird

gonna have to get myself one of these tees by The Bee and the Fox when the little guy is born. and he will have to wear this one, sorry son – i’m already embarrassing you with matching tees. shop the entire range here.

Polder

Polder + April Showers

polder is a boutique in Paris that also has a girls line called april showers. originally i was just going to share the new polder spring 2016 collection, but was totally seduced by the kids line, too. The Parisian brand polder was created in 2000 by two sisters of Dutch origin, Madelon Lanteri-Laura and Natalie Vodegel.…

OneDuo diaper backpack

Diaper Backpacks (that aren’t ugly)

Above: diaper backpack by One Duo. fun fact, we don’t call them diapers – we call them nappies. so really, it’s a nappy bag. but for the sake of the internet i’m going to switch to the American version here. soooooooo, diaper bags! yeeeesh. that’s basically my reaction whenever i even…

Miss Moss: Kids Things

Kids Things

i was conflicted about doing this post because the one thing i feel weird about is “designing” your kid’s life, or creating a remotely instagrammeable lifestyle for your kid. on the other hand i think some kids things are pretty sweet, and i find myself straying into kidswear departments pretty often…

Lorien Stern ceramics

Lorien Stern

when i first saw these ceramic shark wall hangings by Lorien Stern i thought, damn – wish i had a kid to buy these for. but then i realised i don’t need to have or even be a child to partake in the joy of a sweet ceramic shark head!…
