Scandi Mini Pre-Loved Charity Children's Event

Tuesday, 14 June 2016 06:27:17 Europe/London

On Friday we are hosting a pre loved children's charity sale at our showroom in West Kensington W14. Having a children's store is great in many ways and one of the things it has been really good for is giving my children an incredible wardrobe. Probably a bit too incredible if I am honest.

Being a shopaholic I've bought them a wide range of clothes from the shop and elsewhere and what better way to remove all the clutter from our already filled to the brim wadrobes than selling everything that Wilhelm and Cornelia are not using at a charity sale. We have more things than we can wear and tear and if we can also raise some money for those in need at the same time than I'd say it's a pretty good reason to go shopping with us at our event on Friday.

Clothes sizes 0-8 from brands like Bobo Choses, Mini Rodini and Beau LOves and many more. The charity we will be donating to from the proceeds of the sale is called Honeypot and it's a children's charity supporting vulnerable children in London, and as their offices are based on the same road as us we thought it was a perfect fit. They will bring along their mascot, The Honeypot Bee and we will also have a facepainter and meringues from the Meringue Girls on site. 

Please see info below with all the necessary info.

A Scandi Mini House Tour - Would you rent your place out?

Friday, 10 June 2016 06:05:54 Europe/London

Would you ever rent out your apartment or house? That's what we are thinking of doing for a few weeks in August but we haven't posted anywhere yet. Or how about a house swap? Have you done one of those?

I've never used Air B'n'B or the likes but I will do when I go to Paris this summer for Playtime Paris and Kid (the main children's fashion fairs in France in our sector). Normally I always stay at Mama Shelter in Paris for the shows but when I wanted to book in March the rooms were out of this world expensive (450 euros per night from around 145 normally, and I assume thanks to the Euro 2016 championchips) so I ended up booking a flat in central Paris instead. And that made me think. Should we rent our house out when we're not here?

I'd love any feedback on websites you've used and how you've found it all, both if you've rented out your place or if you've simply stayed at someone ele's place. Feel free to email me with any feedback, both good and bad.

And below are some shots from our house. It's in West London and we think it's rather lovely. But that's just my personal view. ;)

Best Friends and siblings!

Monday, 6 June 2016 06:45:14 Europe/London

I am sure many of you agree that one of the best things about having children is to see them turn into little individuals, with their own unique personalities. What I didn't expect however is how close a bond my two have, especially as they are a boy and a girl and 3.5 years apart.

Personally I grew up with a brother who is so very different to me (I am sure it didn't help that our parents were also divorced and we didn't always live together), and we never really played together, apart from the hours of computer games we used to play in the mid 80s, ha!

I think as a result, I totally adore seeing Wilhelm & Cornelia being so close and how they are so affectionate with each other. Cornelia, who is the more outspoken of the two, often says: Wilhelm, you are my best friend. Wilhelm nods and smiles. And that, and those few words, make me so happy.
