Taking the Ikea Ferry across to Red Hook with our Ergo Baby 360 Prior to our big family trip to the US – I had conducted extensive research on what would make life easier when travelling with a baby – especially on the kind we were embarking on.

A Weekend in the Hamptons!

Exactly one month ago, my little family and I set sail for our first big summer holiday to New York and the Hamptons! Visiting the Hamptons has always been a dream of mine [even before the Kardashian’s graced it with their presence]. Historically the summer playgrounds for many American presidents and first ladies – Jackie […] Read more…

Countdown to New York 12 days to go…Williamsburg

I have been reading so much about Williamsburg in Brooklyn lately – which has apparently become the hub of design in Brooklyn and has a thriving art community – also all of its popular design stores are focused in a small area making it so convenient. I love the sound of Loom, Nest and Saved. […] Read more…
