This season's must-have linen items for kids

This Summer’s must-haves for kids

I had so many messages & questions on Instagram about the outfit Mila was wearing today that I’ve put the links below and the photos we took today. It was a rainy day, the girls were a bit bored and since I fainted this morning, I didn’t really have the energy to take them to explore Singapore. So instead, I taught them about posing and photography.

Life with Mila | Shopping

Me: “For your birthday, we can have a girls day and go shopping if you want” Mila: ” oh great! Can it be unlimited credit?” Me: “errm non….” Mila turned 11 a a couple of weeks ago. As we were staying with some friends near Cap-Breton, we went shopping in Hossegor. I’m sure if you are mums of pre-teens you’re going through the same thing than me but the days of having fun buying clothes for my daughter are **OVER**! I used to be able to buy her and most importantly dress her, in gorgeous Liberty print dresses and blouses with smocks but now the sole mention of a dress and she looks at me in disbelief if I was completely mad. I’m not mad, I keep hoping that she will change her mind :-)))) Saying that, we found a middle ground… Last Summer, we had paid a visit to a shop in Hossegor (forgot the name sorry!) where the lady was a bit pushy but she had a great selection of my favourite brands Finger in the Nose, …

LIFE WITH MILA | THE TUTU

Last night, Mila was hanging out in her tutu wearing hardly anything while I was all wrapped up in my soft jumper. I asked her what was the occasion, her response cracked me up…

Happy vibes & mother love

Good news!

I have teamed up with Elias and Grace, one of my favourite shops for Mila, to offer my readers a whopping 20% OFF with the promo code TREATBF15. To redeem the offer, make sure you enter the promo code at the checkout and click on apply, the 20% OFF will be automatically deducted. The offer goes from today until Tuesday 27/10/15 midnight GMT. Mila is now getting too old for Bobo Choses but it is still one of my favourite brands and I love love love this Birds dress! Another of my favourite brands is French label Louis Louise. The collection has a slightly retro, boho feel yet with

Denim power

I tried to take pictures of Mila’s outfit this morning before going to school… I got 10 seconds of stillness and then, she went off running with Lucas, jumping on the trampoline. True to be told, she is on the trampoline ALL THE TIME and I think if you have the space, it’s the best thing to keep the kids active rather than having them glued to their iPad! In addition, her dad built her a mini-Accrobranche so she is constantly doing a circuit from the trampoline to the tree house, hanging on the trapeze, pulling herself from the strength of her arms to the top of the rope and jumping back on the trampoline (last night she was training to be a Spy!)

Bobo Choses SS 2015 Collection

One of my favourite brands to dress Mila is BOBO CHOSES (available at Elias and Grace in the UK and Smallable in France). I’ve watched them growing from a small indie brand in 2008 into a beloved worldwide brand and each season, their collection fills me with joy and inspiration. I would love to style their collection once and I really wish they would do some of their sweatshirts for women too!

MILA’S VIDE-DRESSING: IG 04/01/2015 11am

A few days ago, I was asked on Instagram how I kept our home uncluttered. The short answer is that I go through our things every month. I know that there is often a lot of emotions attached to the way we don’t let go things and that’s ok. Yoga teaches you that if there is one posture you don’t want to do, that’s exactly the one you should be doing right now. I think it’s a bit the same with decluttering our personal space…the things we don’t want to let go are the things we need to let go so we can move on with our lives and address the emotions that tie us down. One thing I do now (and it took me a while of getting used to the idea) is letting go of Mila‘s baby & toddler clothes because at the end of the day, she is growing up, she is becoming her own, beautiful person with a mind of her own, her own tastes (which means she will no longer wear the gorgeous Liberty …
