We’re loving these unisex bracelets by American brand Miansai right now.
The company began in 2008 and have an array of goods, from these bracelets, rings, solid gold accessories, leather goods, and the women’s watches caught my eye too. Simple, clean designs with nice details.
We have Beau LOves Bows & Arrows AW14 collection available to order online now. A great collection, bound to be a sell out. Great prints of bows & arrows, crosses, mini masks and feathers. Oversized shapes, lots of masks, and new underwear in this season’s collection! We love ♥
Happy weekend x

It would be lovely to get a few more zzzz’s on one of these right now, but I’m still doing night feeds and my pillow is more of a back support. Here are a few lovely pillow case picks, I just bought bean 2 his first pillow and got him the Fine Little Day happy/sad face cover which he LOVES.

I’m off to Paris for the Playtime SS15 Trade Show this weekend. Can’t wait to see some loveliness for next year, and a couple of days with just bean 3. He’s teething so I hope it’s a smooth trip.
We have a giveaway on instagram starting today, so follow us (if you don’t already) @samlilbeans to enter.

Here’s a little q&a that the lovely Cheyenne did for us:
Where do you live and with whom?
Small town in Indiana. My long time fiancé (15 years together) and 2 year old son Hugo.
What made you launch Hugo Loves Tiki, what inspires you and are there any new designs/products on the horizon?
Since I was 5, I desperately wanted to be a fashion designer and carried that torch with me always, but never thought I could do it as I’m not the greatest seamstress. After getting pregnant and finding out I was having a boy, I was depressed with the choices from local chains such as Target. Once, I found brands like Bobo Choses and Mini Rodini, my mind was blown. And, I thought that screen printing shirts was a nice easy first step to wet my feet and hopefully one day progressing into a seasonal line.
I’m hoping to add more t shirt designs, pillow cases, hats, bags etc. But, ultimately I want to find a seamstress and screen print fabric that can be sewn into garments I design.
Have you found your work/life/parenthood balance?
Recently, it has gotten a little hectic with wholesale orders. But, one of my best friends babysits my other best friends kids and I usually drop Hugo off with her once a week so I can get orders printed and tags done while Hugo gets much needed social time with his besties. We moved back to Indiana after living in New York and Chicago to be closer to family and friends for this reason. We always have someone ready and willing to watch Hugo for work or if me and my fiancé need some alone time.
What do you love doing as a family?
We love having family time at the beach (lake) in the summertime, farmer’s market runs, and pool time is always a favorite.
To brighten the end of a very rainy half term we’re having a sale this weekend. 30% off the whole shop, enter BEAN30 at checkout.
Hope the sun comes out this weekend wherever you are x

We love what this brother/sister duo from New Zealand are producing. Simple, graphic designs on sweatshirts and tee’s. Especially liking the pillow cases.
Hope you have a lovely Valentine’s with your love(s). Make sure you take a look at our Flash Sale that’s going on for today only.
Big love x

Now Autumn is finally setting in, I’ve been looking at blankets. I love them anyway, but I’m also looking for a special one for lil’ bean 3. It’s one of the things I like to get for each them, to have as their own.

I love the colours and fabrics in the collection from Erica Tanov for summer. Based in San Francisco Bay with her husband and 2 children, Erica launched her brand in 1994. There is a womens wear collection and also a home/bedding collection, both lovely, bohemian, subtle and clean.
This skirt would be on my wish list for summer, if I wasn’t pregnant – the fabric is amazing. I’d like a bed quilt in it too, and the model’s also got a pretty cool tattoo.
Not stocked over here as far as I know, but available online or if your holidaying in America, keep an eye out.

There’s nothing nicer than getting in to bed, especially if it’s in to clean new sheets. Merci is a wonderful Parisian store (well worth a visit if in Paris), full of stuff you ‘know’ you need, and they have an array of bed linen in the loveliest colours. Obviously not cheap, but some things are worth paying for (occasionally). They have recently launched their online shop, so what you save on Eurostar you can spend online.
