Hey my loves! I am so happy to be back after this little break (read: flu and chest infections all around and not sunbathing on a lovely little beach in France.. if you were wondering...) featuring the little dude label from the amazing Amsterdam label: Scotch & Soda, Scotch Shrunk SS17! Shrunk is exactly like big brother brand Scotch and Soda, and no detail or expense has been spared in the quality and creation of these amazing threads and the little dudes absolutely loves the colours and the artwork! We always head straight to Buckets and Spades at every drop, this playful brand, has really become a favourite over here. Even better, Scotch And Soda has a very strict code of conduct they follow from production to end, and I love that about them. 
Our kids are pretty amazing climbers and this sunday we took them out to our new favourite park ever, and we had a little market shop, a big play and a climb (yes, I was even climbing with my camera to get some of these shots!) The massive gum tree was blown over in a huge storm and is now laying across the water: Still growing, with her roots firmly in the ground surrounding the saltwater lagoon ~ how amazing she is! The colours and the light in here is amazing! The light dapples through the leaves and the colour of the stem and the water underneath just makes this the most amazing place to explore! Mr C threw himself from branch to branch and Lu climbed up the tallest trees ever! Gah these kids are incredible little humans, I wish I had half the strength and ability they have! (Yep Im their biggest fan! They amaze me every day!) 

I hope you enjoy this little adventure! 

Have a wonderful week my darlings

Hey loves! I am so excited that the SS and AW collections from around the world has begun to come in, and we going to show you the best of the best in ethically manufactured children's fashion. One of our all time favourite brands, is Scotch and Soda's little kids labels Scotch R'belle and Scotch Shrunk. This beloved Amsterdam brand follows a very strict code of conduct in their production, and spares no expenses in their amazing luxurious quality and detailing and with vibrant colours and amazing prints. We have been lucky enough to feature these gorgeous brands a few seasons, and I must tell you, these pieces just last and last. This is one of those brand that I just wish you could touch through the blog, because it would literally knock you over. Buckets and spades has the best selection of Scotch for kids, and is our one stop destination for other amazing brands also, like Bobo Choses, Rylee and Cru, Munster kids to mention a few.
Miss W is wearing this beautiful boxy fit teeny-bit-cropped cotton top, full of sequins down the front. It is so gorgeous and the colour is the perfect shade of peachy pink. The skirt features a soft elastic waist, and a silky layer, printed with gorgeous tropical artwork, and a super soft cotton underskirt. This outfit mixed with Eli Papanatas Star Clogs, I have to say, super classy and the cutest outfit everrrr! I haven't really used blooms much in my shoots before but oh how lovely it feels to add a bright splash of colour! And of course we get to have the blooms in our house for days and days after the shoot, brightening up the house. What a win! 
For this little adventure, we just headed to a little surf town a few minutes away from where we live and explored around the lagoon. This country is so beautiful and I am so happy to know my kids are growing up surrounded by all this beauty: colourful blooms everywhere, warm weather, beautiful clear skies and the lush ocean blues. And then, of course, we headed out for lemonade ice pops when the sun set because after a productive day, lemonade ice pops is definitely a must for 4 year old little ladies! 

I hope you will love this little adventure, and that you will have yourself a wonderful weekend!!

Thank you for popping by
