Sometimes I get some products from a sponsor. I enjoy that because of course I love a present now and than and second because I get to test their products. And in all fairness... it's easier to recommend something if you've tried it yourself.
For lötiekids clothes from Barcelona my little boy was the one to do the testing. We've tried some shirts and shorts and I must say I really really love them. The material is really soft and holds well after washing, as well as the colors. And they've thought of little ones by putting buttons around the neckline making it easy to put on and off. What I personally like is the amazing prints. Beautiful detailed fishes, bikes, houses and now with the new collection sea stars and kangaroos.
Luckely I'm not the only one loving the lötiekids products. I've spotted some other (Dutch) users in my Instragram feed and they are also very fond of this brand.

Also like what Vincent has to say about his kids 'The kids confront us both with our short comings as talents as a parent'.

Such a cute decoration idea for adding a bit of color to a room or a party. A garland of colorful felt in circles and traingles. Available at the Land of Nod in every color you can think of. The Land of Nod is also one of the Instagram accounts that I really enjoy following. They are opening a few new shops in the US and show you in steps how they DIY decorate them.

After about 16 months of (not allways voluntarily) cosleeping we're considering getting our little boy a toddler bed. Looking online at the options I came across this amazing junior bed by Kalon Studios called Caravan Divan. Available in several detail colors that will suit your kidsroom decor. I love the legs, the little differences in wood color and the attention of detail. And yes, they can live up to their slogan.

It's my birthday this Monday and I know I'm no longer a kid (think you've outgrown that by the age of 38...) but how I would love to still have birthday parties like this. Great preps with making funny cakes and DIY decorations. And than have an amazing day with your friends celebrating and getting your imagination going. The images are from the site of Australian stylist Rachel Vigor. You can also see some Friday eye candy of homes she's worked in on the LilleLykke blog.

I love thrifting and therefor have so many vintage toys, puzzles and books for kids. A room like this (seen on the Family Living website) is a cute inspiration. However somehow when decorating a kidsroom I stick to a more modern atmosphere. Must find a good way to blend the two. Still have 2 boysrooms to decorate here in Singapore so a good challenge ahead of me.

If you can draw and paint this is a great idea spotted on the IKEA kids site. Use one of their rolls of paper, paint and your own imagination to create a growth chart. And the good part is. This one you can take with you when you move and write their growth on. I remember us doing this on the kitchen door post. You could really see a growth spurt around 14 years old.

Via the blog of an Australian designer I came across these building block beauties by Torafu Architect in Japan. You can make the most amazing figures and they've used great colors. I've found an online shop where you can buy them but must admit my Japanese is not very good. So not sure if they'll do international shipping.

I'm a huge LINDEX fan and a huge Littlephant fan. Can you imagine my excitement when these two teamed up for a collection. They started last season and how there's a whole bunch of new items in the shop. You can order from most European countries. Make sure you visit the LINDEX shop if you haven't already because there are much more goodies to find for an affordable price (many of my Instagram followers have already placed several orders).

This week I received this cute gift from the owner of House of C, a Kitchenbloom poster. Only mine says 'BEWARE OF the little rascals'. Make sure you visit this shop. Not that you'll find a lot of kids decorations but all the more cute stuff for yourself.

Can I please get a big CHEER for the new Littlephant collection. I discovered them when they just sold Swedish books and cute posters. Their website had an announcement for Interior and more kids stuff to come and I just couldn't wait. This is their second seasons of those products and my o my they just keep getting more cute, more desirable and more a neccassity. Still need a bit of patience for these goodies to hit the stores but I love looking through their new catalogue.
