Panduro Hobby – Crafting and creativity across three colourful floors
In the country of hygge, hobbying and crafting are a Big Deal. This is because time spent quietly and warmly indoors, while the air freezes outside and the light takes its leave, is a thing that gives comfort. Spending time together is important to Danish families and, in a country so admired for its strong design ...

Souvenirs from Copenhagen – Airport Danish pastries from Lagkagehuset
When I travel to England (or to anywhere else in Europe for that matter) to see family and friends, I always leave the task of buying small gifts for the airport. Firstly, because there’s a packed little branch of Illums Bolighus there, where you can buy all the beautiful Danish Christmas decorations from autumn through ...

Souvenirs from Copenhagen – Vintage Danish blue plates
When we first moved to Copenhagen, I noticed many of our Danish friends had cool, eclectic crockery collections that were mixed and matched. There were handmade one-offs from stores like Stilleben mixed with simple white dishes from chains like Søstrene Grene, and there were vintage plates from loppemarkeder (flea markets). I noticed that in among the latter, ...

Ry 70 – Vintage kimonos, handmade children's clothes and flea market finds in a tiny Østerbro shop
On the largely residential street of Ryesgade, is a little peach-pink shop of treasures, where you never quite know what you’re going to get. The store keeps off-kilter hours, sometimes decided by the weather, and when you walk past its single window when it's closed, it’s intriguingly filled with dinky vintage toys and hung with ...

Fabelab – A soft, sustainable universe for babies and kids
Through an ornately carved doorway on Nansensgade, secreted away between the Botanisk Have and the busy Torvehallerne, sits the studio-store of Danish children’s brand Fabelab. Here its founder Michaela W-B and her small, enthusiastic team busily create soft, organic things ‘for dreamers and adventurers’, many of which are designed for buying now and carrying on ...

Mini Me – Copenhagen's coolest kicks for kids
If Copenhagen has a particular destination ‘high street’ – not so much high street stores as delis, flower shops, bakeries and independent bookstores all beautifully wrapped in a local neighbourhood vibe – then Gammel Kongevej in Frederiksberg is it. This could, to Copenhageners, seem a little strange – because Frederiksberg is actually a municipality all ...

Welcome to our newest #babyccinokidsboutiques on the block! Eco conscious clothing and decor for adventurous kids … Bella + Phoenix! Brand @bella_and_phoenix is created by Debbie Turrell a Sussex based graphic designer/illustrator and mum. From a young age both her children showed an avid interest in the natural world. From rock pooling to finding mini beasties in the back garden, everything would be inspected (not dissected!) and then avidly talked about. Next would come the barrage of questions! It inspired her to come up with the 'Tee of Knowledge’. The clothing is organized into cute themes and children will definitely feel inspired when they are dressed and ready for an afternoon spent amongst nature! Being passionate about ethical production, all the clothing is handprinted to order in Bella and Phoenix Sussex studio on organic cottons, using eco friendly inks. The packaging is recycled and 100% biodegradable too. We hope your little explorers will be inspired!

Wilkie has requested this as his bedtime story every night for the last few weeks, and it’s one of those books I never tire of reading. Arno and his Horse is a beautiful story, written with rhyming text and illustrated with beautiful, rich watercolour illustrations of an Australian country setting.

Today we had the very best sunny day in London town! We visited our amazing #babyccinoboutiques @vildhouseoflittle for a studio tour and sneak peek at their newest items! We enjoyed @somersethouse and the @londondesignbiennale including the inspiring free exhibit, Forest For Change, directed by @esdevlin. We then went to meet some beautiful elephants in @coventgardenldn at @petershamnurseries bringing attention to the @coexistencecampaign. Needless to say, it was a full day and @laraoflondon got the babe back in time for a nap. Now tell us, what new energy has the summer sun given you? #babyccinokids #babyccinotravels

How to make honeycomb… a fun activity to bake with children. Watching the mixture bubble up is like watching a seriously exciting science lesson! Once made, broken up into chunky shards it is devoured by the whole family. Even better crushed onto vanilla ice cream makes for a fun summery dessert.

This gym bag is such a fun and easy project, also for beginners this is a nice sewing project. Esther, Emilie and the kids had so much fun going to the market choosing all the supplies. The fabrics from Little Cube are the cutest!
