There is a lot more to come. Shop here.

Paper Light

Somehow I just stumbled across these amazing paper lamp shades from Studio Snowpuppe in the Netherlands. Designed by an architect and an industrial designer, they are just stunning. So perfect for a modern kids room. I so want to get one of these one day! But them here or on Etsy here.

Bean Bags

I know bean bags are usually pretty boring but go and explore the Little Red Stuga range and you will see some cool ideas like bean bag designs based on the highest mountains in the world which show really cute map like information. But my favorite is this knitted pouf based on the highest mountain in Sweden. Feel free to buy me one of these.

Boon Boon Boon Boon

So I have blogged about this brand before but there are so many great products I have only just come across. Unfortunately some of the best items are no longer on the site so below are some of the things I like from their current collection. We have the lady bug bath thingy - it holds all the bath toys and the red bit comes off so you can scoop all the toys and rinse them and hang them up. There is also a little shelf for bottles. The second image is a new bath toy and the third image is some really cute food containers. Lovely things that are wants and not needs? See the full range here.

Finally! Someone has done a range of maternity fashion that has some style. Check out the Hatch collection here. This is actually the first time I have seen maternity wear that is not corporate and personality-free. And you can wear it before, during and after pregnancy, so you don't have to waste your money on short term clothing. Found via Oh Joy.

High Chairs

I have been holding out for a while on doing this post until I could definitely say our High chair was good. We have had a Stokee Tripp Trapp for many months but have only been using it for about six weeks. We chose it mainly because we didn't want a massive ugly piece of furniture taking up space after we stopped using it. So we got a Tripp Trapp that can go from a high chair to an adult seat. We love it and would totally recommend it. The only downside is that there are heaps of add ons which can make the price get pretty high.

Since our baby has been in a high chair we are starting to use other high chairs in cafés and realising that a lot of them are total crap. But one that is amazing is the Handysitt. We have been using this lately at our favourite cafe and like it so much we have decided to buy one for when we are out and about visiting family or just at cafés. It's really sturdy but also really expensive. But there are a few available on Trade Me at half price, so be quick if you want one!
