In the warm, under the duvet

What better than December month to talk about warm and cosy duvets ? A few years ago, I discovered Zizzz, a Swiss brand of organic and durable linen. This brand is peoccupied by the children’s sleep : so they created duvets, buggies and blankets, entirely made from ecological wool. Now Zizzz also makes adult duvets and 100% organic cotton children’s pajamas. The interest of using wool to make duvets and bunks is that it is a perfect thermal regulator … contrary to synthetic polyester pudding usually used for duvets…

Christmas cabin

To start Christmas festivities, Sweet Cabane will open its online Christmas shop today !! There, you can find toys, stationery, candles and beautiful exclusive accessories for children. Some French designers have made exclusive pieces for us : Petit Bec, Apolline à Paris and Johanna Braitbart. These three designers have in common a same sweet, poetic and refined world. All of them have made here a  hand-crafted collection mainly made up of unique pieces. *** Petit Bec, a new French brand for kids, has designed  pretty decorative wreaths for Sweet Cabane. Perfect…

Little Creative Factory

Little Creative Factory is a Spanish brand that I’ve been admiring since its beginning : I love above all its creativity and independence of mind. So, when its designer asked me to do a series of photos, I was so happy ! This brand is very special, supported by the creative spirit of its founder, Cristina, who originally worked as an architect. This is probably why each piece is so well cut, with a perfect balance of volumes. The brand’s image is nostalgic : neutral colors, simple and timeless…

Classy coats

As Fall is progressing  and  temperatures are becoming cooler, looking for the right coat becomes a real issue. Precisely, I find it very difficult to find  the  ‘right’ coat, the one that is lovely, cozy and convenient … That brings a ‘plus’ to the outfit… instead of completely hiding it ! And if it’s not easy for little girls, it’s even more complicated for  boys! So I hope you will enjoy this selection I’ve made for you from my own research.    *** GIRLS 1….

One day in the countryside

A few weeks ago, I did a photo shoot for a vintage furniture brand called ChahutBahut. It was a wonderful experience and I loved to imagine, organize and take in charge the whole shooting. This new work is important to me, and that’s why I’d like to share this moment with you here! With Coralie, the founder of Chahut Bahut, we went to a friend of mine who lived in the countryside, not far from Paris and we installed our scene in her garden. My youngest daughter didn’t…

Autumn at their feet

Chilly mornings are the first signs of Autumn. If you can still easily wear a t-shirt with a simple cardigan during the day,  feet now want to stay in the warm. So, for kids too, comes the time to choose the right  pair of shoes … The one that will be both comfortable and warm, practical and easy to slip into, resistant to rain … and aesthetical, of course 😉 ! I’ve correctly summed up the situation, haven’t I? Here is a selection of…

Kids’ fashion from Reykjavik to Barcelona

For this Fall children’s fashion selection, I’d like to show you some small brands coming from many different European countries, which often work locally from high-quality and refined fabrics. Most of them are very small companies working with local workshops. The design is beautiful, timeless, and the quality at its best (I’ve tested all these brands with my kids). Each tim, I’ve just selected one or two models fromf these brands, but I beg you to go and have a look at their website to discover many other beautiful…

Splash mood

Last week, I wanted to write a culture post about the  The Great Animal Orchestra exhibition currently taking place at the Cartier Foundation … Unfortunately, due to wifi problems, I had to give it up. All my apologies ! But the only thing I could say now is that you should go and see this exhibition dealing with animals, their voice and, more broadly, with the place of human being in Nature. A beautiful moment to share with your kids to talk about environment and animal  protection. The exhibition runs until January 8,…

Summer vibes

Summer is theoretically here (yay … even if we still need some prooves, here, in Paris) and we’re dreaming  of sunshine and swimming, grilled food and complete salads, relaxation and excursions … I have, of course, not yet packed our bags as holidays are into two weeks and a half, but here’s a very eclectic selection of what I would take with me during Summer holidays … The list is varied, but not complete at all! It goes from super swimsuit to restorative cream,…
