Posted on by

There are lovely clean, fresh products for your lil’ ones from Father Rabbit.  Founded in 2010 by husband and wife team Claudia Zinzan and Nick Hutchinson, after the birth of their son, in New Zealand.  They share their living space with their shop, and have lovely, clean products for the whole house.  It reminds me a bit of Bailey’s Home which I have adored for years.

The pyjamas are a collaboration with New Zealand based childrenswear designer G Nancy.  Totally gorgeous and classic.  Go and browse their online shop it’s a breath of fresh air.

don’t forget the dads

We love this site ‘Not a Bad Dad‘.  Founded by Simon Tyler in April 2012, it’s an online magazine offering great articles and cool finds for dads and their kids.


There is also a shop by Not a Bad Dad called ‘Father‘.  It has a selection of great hand picked products, full of design and quality.  The site has a cool feature where you can enter the birthdays you need to remember and it will send you a reminder a couple of weeks before the date, with a selection of gift suggestions.  These guys are truly creating something special and not forgetting the dads.

I’m in love with these custom made shoes from Zuzii.  Ryan Campbell sources supplies from around the U.S to make these adorable shoes from her studio, creating a wonderful home made business.  Zuzii also make accessories, just as cute as the shoes.

New local food market for South London!

Posted on by


So, this Saturday 11th May 2013 sees the opening of a weekly food market in Crystal Palace.  As a local, this is rather exciting.  Quite a few of my friends like to go to local food markets on a weekend, take a wander and taste locally made treats.  It’s great to do with kids too, especially when the weather is nice (fingers crossed for sun on Saturday).

You can make advanced orders and collect produce from some stall holders, which is a great idea and many stalls are on a rotation.  Also, a great idea as it gives variety from week to week for customers and allows many great local producers a chance to get familiar with and support from the community.

If you are a South Londoner and foodie then take a trip to Crystal Palace and support the small businesses!  Also, a tip for the 1st June sees the amazing treats from Cookie & Biscuit on the market.  A take on classic American deliciousness, NOT to be missed!

Land of Kids – Bank Holiday Monday

Posted on by


If you haven’t made plans for Bank Holiday Monday (6th May) yet, then take a look at ‘Land of Kids’ 1 day festival.  Taking place in East London, this ticket entry festival looks to be packed with fun stuff to do with the kids for the day.  Things like, Anorak Magazine Making Machine, Indikidual Scooter Paint Party, Disco, Photo Booth, Flower Seed Bombing, Reggae Nursery Rhymes, Street Feast Food Market, is just naming a few.  Everything is free once inside, apart from food and drink.  It’s going to be busy and let’s hope for some more good weather to top off a great day out.

So, the sun has put it’s hat on and made it’s first warm appearance of the year this week. Therefore, we should start going crazy for sandals…Salt Water sandals!  Beginning in America in the 1940’s, they are now stocked Worldwide.  The sandals come in a good range of colours, 6 styles to choose from, in sizes for toddlers to adults.
