Uniqlo X KAWS

Posted on by

We like the artwork of KAWS in our house, so looking forward to buying a few pieces from the Uniqlo x KAWS collaboration that launches tomorrow, 2nd June at 10am.

Here are a few pieces to give you an idea, many more colours available as well as some bags.  Might even get a pair of the slippers to pack in my labour bag!

A good every day bag should be pretty easy to find when you have kids, but it’s not – or maybe I’m a bit fussy. But, worry no more and get a bit excited, because new brand TIBA + MARL launch in September and will satisfy your mum/dad bag needs.  Launching with 4 main styles, Raf, Elwood, Mabel and James, these bags all contain the following features: padded changing mat, insulated bottle holder, smart phone pocket, key fob, removable clutch or cross body bag, wipe clean lining, internal zip pocket, plus 4 extra pockets, a cross body strap, elasticated bottle/toddler cup holder, and metal feet on the base of the bags.  There is also a signature nappy changing clutch in the range, in various prints.  The styles and prints are varied enough to suit everyone, and a mum and dad team should be able to agree on one they are both happy to use, whether it’s plain black or leopard.

Screen Shot 2015-05-21 at 19.40.42I haven’t seen them in person yet, but my favourites are Raf and Elwood.

Screen Shot 2015-05-21 at 19.40.54Anna and Lydia are the mum’s behind these bags, both from a fashion background and now have 2 littles each so know what a good parent bag needs.  You can sign up to the waiting list here

We have one of our quick little q&a’s with Anna here:

Who do you live with and where?
With my husband James, my 2 year old son Raf and 4 month old baby boy, Miller. We live in Ealing, West London

How did you get together to form Tiba and Marl?  How have you found
starting a business and juggling motherhood?
Lydia and I have been friends for many years – she was my designer in my first job in fashion buying, back when we were really fresh faced!! Between us we have 4 children – both our youngest are still babies – we both couldn’t find a nappy changing bag we liked and decided that we would just create a brand ourselves!! We already have 80 people on a waiting list for our ELWOOD backpack – that in itself makes all the hard worth seem worthwhile, and we have received so many amazing messages from mums and mums-to-be saying they can’t wait for the bags. It has been hard work starting the business with small children but we are so passionate about the brand and it really helps that Lydia and I are in the same situation and can bounce off each other. In some ways it has been the perfect time to start a business as we are so driven and focused on our aims.

What is the hardest thing about motherhood for you right now and what is
your favourite thing to do or place to go as a family?
Hardest thing at the moment is that I’m still breastfeeding and he won’t take a bottle and I’m worried what I will do when we have our trade show in June – may just be sat at the stand with a baby on my boob!!! It is hard to balance family time and work, I’m finding myself particularly addicted to Instagram as exciting things are happening daily and it’s so temping to look constantly – but then I feel so guilty doing it in front of the kids 🙁

Favourite thing to do – we love days out in Richmond park or Kew Gardens followed by a family evening meal of dim sum! My two year old hoovers up prawn dumplings!

Agatha Cub

Posted on by


We love Brooklyn based kids brand Agatha Cub, and are so happy to be a UK stockist and have them on Lil’ Beans. You must have an Agatha Cub piece to mix and match in your kids wardrobe.  Really high quality, unique clothing, that’s one of a kind.  Each print varies from fabric to fabric, as the pieces are digitally printed on the surface of the fabric that is already woven or knitted.  Agatha Cub is one of this season’s brands to have a piece of.  Whether it’s a cap, one of the amazing knitted T’s (loose and super soft), a pair of racer shorts, or bag, you won’t regret it and your kids will love it.






Agatha Cub have a great repurpose program too.  If you’re not handing down your grown out of garment, you can sell it back to them to re-cycle.  Just sign up to the program on their site when you’re ready to pass it on and Agatha Cub will help you do the rest.

Take a look at our full selection of the brand here.

Rylee & Cru

Posted on by

It’s a slight step away from all the sparkle and talk of Christmas at the moment, but I wanted to post this new brand Rylee & Cru.

Screen Shot 2014-12-16 at 19.04.12Founded by Kelli, inspired and named after her two children.  I love the soft tones of this collection, and the supersoft, pre-shrunk jersey it’s made from.  The prints are all hand drawn and it’s all made in the U.S.A.

Miansai + Beau LOves AW14

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.

I’m really liking this Canadian brand I’ve recently come across.  Largely monochrome based, they have great handmade organic, swaddles, leggings, hats and scarves.  All handmade, using organic cotton, we especially love the leopard and pineapple prints.

Here are a few of our favourites.
