It’s not too late to get the perfect holiday outfit for your wee ones. We happen to know that Tea Collection has rolled out it’s best Holiday Collection yet. We love the Japanese influences and attention to even the smallest detail with this gorgeous collection. Our top pick for your Christmas soirée? Dress your worldly miss in the Miko Floral Dress…so jaw dropping and perfect too for your tot’s winter time birthday party circuit. Looks great with a black cardi. For our little man of the house we went for the smart Shippo Woven shirt and the Corduroy Jeans in Jet black. We would add a white onesie underneath to make it more casual or a sweater vest on top to take it up a notch. Depends on the outing. Tea Collection is a known favorite of celeb toddler Violet Affleck and has been featured in our baby fashion bible, Baby Couture magazine.
Oh, and just in case you decide to head on over, be prepared to drool over their brilliantnew pajama line. Super soft puma cotton meets luxe styles…how could you go wrong? We have their Butterfly Sleeper Set, and only wish it came in mommy size too.
I love going online to get tea collection clothes.
We’ve been testing out some new carriers lately, and we have definitely chosen our favorite one. Kokopax’s Classic Carrier is making our hikes with the family and walks to the shops more comfy and stylish. What do we love most about this aluminum framed baby carrier? It’s so lightweight…we’re talking so lightweight that all you feel is the weight of your child. Most carriers seem to almost outweigh your tot these days…not Kokopax. We also love the fab color choices…from beautiful blossoms to chic black licorice, these patterns and shades are modern and current, nothing cutesy or too sweet, so you and your partner should be able to agree on one. Also impressive is the handy storage pocket that fits just enough baby gear for an outing (diaper, small pack of wipes, onesie), and even leaves enough room for a few of mommy’s essentials like lipbalm, credit card and phone (if you roll it up, you may just be able to fit your weekly gossip mag in there too!). The Kokopax also wins points for it’s kickstand. This feature will probably be the one you thought you didn’t need, but once you start using it, you’ll wonder what you would have done without it.

Every boy (or girl for that matter) needs a toy dump truck. It’s just one of those things. Total necessity. It’s a classic and solid choice for a Christmas gift…what little boy doesn’t want to zoom around Christmas morning filling his dump truck up with holiday bows and his sister’s precious toys? This year we picked Green Toy’s much sought after yellow and red dump truck. Made completely from recycled milk jugs and free from nasty chemicals ( not a drop of BPA’s in this vehicle) and also free of batteries, funny sounds and remote controls. Perfect for indoors and out and it’s lite enough to pack up and take it with you for playdates. Love the fair price too. We think this toy sends the right message to tots…not too excessive, earth friendly and tons of fun. Green Toys and their fabulous environmentally friendly creations will be making an appearance under our tree this year, what about yours?
We really, really ( no, really) love our fabulous puppet from Canada’s Cate & Levi. We can’t get over how well made and cuddly it is. Handmade from reclaimed wool, these puppets make the most thoughtful and hip Christmas gift to give this year. Each one is fabulously one of a kind, no two puppets will ever have the same exact colors or textures. In a world filled with machine made plastic toys that beep and shout, these puppets from Cate & Levi are a welcome change. Classy, elegant and ready for hours of play, we found these puppets encouraged our tots imagination. Going a little retro, keeping it simple and picking classic toys is definitely the way to go this year mama. You’ll want to hand this puppet down to younger children and even your grandkids, it’s that original and lovely. Our favorite is the floppy eared Moose (can you tell we’re Canadian?). Love that the owner, a dad himself, sources all his materials locally, making them even more eco friendly.
Want a little Cate & Levi under your tree too? We have one fabulous puppet for one very lucky reader. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and tell us your three favorite creations they make and we’ll enter you in our draw. Get your answers in by November 27th at midnight. Good luck mommies!
We love it when we find a hip and stylish company that cares about the environment. We really did let out a squeal of delight when we heard about Apple & Bee, a very eco friendly little gem from Australia that makes the most marvelous baby bags, change pads, cosmetic bags and purses. Apple & Bee use organic cotton, bamboo, hemp, silk, burlap and genuine leather…natural earth friendly fabrics and materials. We went for their truly elegant Silver Clasp Purse. Small enough to fit in your bag and elegant enough to carry on it’s own for a night out. We can fit all our basics into this silk lined stunner…lipstick, credit card and cell. Since we got something for mommy we thought baby would like something too and we went for their practical yet quite stylish Nappy Pad. Love how thick and comfy it is while still quite easy to fold up and take with you. The top layer is organic cotton and the other side is waterproofed denim. Fab patterns to choose…the sailboats would make a brilliant baby shower gift. Better hurry up though, as these creations from OZ have already caught the eye of influential mags like Cosmo and Marie Clare…not long now and you’ll be fighting of Gwynnie and Angie for the last silver Wooden Handel Clutch.
The lovely folks at Chronical books just emailed me about their Friends & Family sale and told me to invite all my friends and family….so consider yourself invited!

Snow is on the way. We know…too soon. However, no reason to fret if you have the right footwear and attitude. We’re getting through our winter blahhs by dressing our tot’s feet in some incredibly stylish winter boots from Vincent Shoes. When it comes to winter, we trust Vincent to keep our babies toes warm and looking very cool. A must have on our list is the Jack…very modern look and fits nice and snug at the ankle so your toddler really will toddle less. The faux wool lining is very “apres ski” and we just love how easy they go on and come off.
We’re also smitten with Vincents Emil, an athletic tennis shoe with tons of style, and very comfy according to our picky 3 year old tester. Perfect shoe for daycare after you take their wet boots off at the door. If you’re tot has to wear shoes all day, this is the shoe you want. Promise.
