Fashion Coos: Linge Shoes

looking for the ultimate holiday shoe? found! the new children's line of ballet flats from linge shoes make the perfect accessory this season. available in a rainbow of colors, these flats are not only stylish, they stay on--thanks to a stretchy strap--and they are soft, which is a must for tiny ones. adela has been basically dancing around non-stop in the ones linge sent us...and honestly, i am ordering another color! i do recommend sizing up.

Ahhs: Twig Creative

i just about fell over when i saw these beautiful cameras by twig creative. they are so bright and playful, but also smart and imaginative. you might think these are more an objet d'art than a toy, but adela has the franny and alexander camera and she uses it all the time...whenever she wants to take a picture! it's insanely cute.

Ahhs: Citibabes Craft Boxes!

new york's finest family membership club just launched a new monthly subscription service citibox. just in time for the holiday season and blustery winter days when you are stuck inside!

each month citibox includes a uniquely themed project tailored to specific age groups. citibox includes two main lessons and a bonus project as well as all necessary materials to complete each task. each box comes with detailed instructions and images of the completed project. i also love this as a gift for big brother or sister when a newborn arrives! available for children ages 18 months to 6 years.

both kids tried out a box and absolutely loved them. they do need supervision, but it was a fun activity for all! to learn more go to or email to order a box.
