Kids galore

With one friend currently expecting, 2 friends recent additions and my brother and his wife hopeful of an announcement in the coming weeks, it's proving next to impossible to not get sucked into the world of kids & babies (see recent post on Counrty Road children's wear - to die for!).

So today's post is dedicated to all things kids, with a few things for us adults thrown in as well. Firstly, if you haven't come across the wonderful website My Messy Room, get on it now! A friend of a friend runs this gorgeous little store in Summer Hill, Sydney but also has a great online shop to boot. I fell in love with a tonne of items in the online store, especially the little girls dresses (if only they came in adult sizes!). You'll find all manner of clothing, toys, homewares and more both in the store and online and if you're after a great read on all things kids, check out the blog.

Another website worth checking out is the fantastic Hotslings for baby slings and nursing covers. I came across these cute designs when reading the Pacing the Panic Room blog - a great account of one families lives from week 1 of their second pregnancy right through to the birth. I love that the baby slings come in reversible material, print on one side, plain colour on the other. Great for the fashionable Mum who wants to coordinate her babies accessories with her outfit. The nursing covers are also a wonderful idea, easy to carry around in your handbag and a great way to cover up if you're out in public and the little one needs a feed (and again, all in lovely printed fabric).

Thanks also has to go to Popsugar this morning for these photos of the stunning Halle Berry and her little family of 3. Not only am I coveting her watermelon summer dress and hat but I'd be willing to take the bub, husband and dog while I'm at it! Such an adorable family having a great time on the beach. If this doesn't make you want summer to hurry up, I don't know what will.

Something that took me back to my own childhood this week was the latest edition of Grazia and their double page spread of paper dolls. I still remember my Mum making me a cardboard doll at the age of 5 and spending hours putting little paper clothes on her. Who needs Barbie when you've got a cardboard cut out? What's even cuter about Grazia's edition is the famous gals you can style (although the choice of clothes is limited, I still want to hack up the pages and pin the designs to my wall!).
