8 simple and festive hairstyles for children

8 simple and festive hairstyles for children
For some reason I thought about hair when I was looking into the article for today. Since the kids wear uniforms to school, even Leonor has to tie her hair back. And finally her big sister is allowed to help (she was asking her all the time to braid or just do her hair but only on very rare occasions she got a yes!)!

So, since it is only 2 weeks (!!!) until Christmas, I thought that some simple and festive hairstyles for children ideas would be really good!

I hope you like the idea…

Because you probably got a nice dress already, the kids are excited anyway and having a lovely hair-do will just underline the whole festive spirit.

Here are some ideas, because often it is all we need. Some inspiration. Some ideas… a photo, and there we go:

Fun and enchanting craft kits for teenagers

djeco7

My 11 year old loves crafting! She loves to make, cut, sew, glue, design, colour or draw. And even so she is big enough now to do most by herself, I do enjoy helping her here and there. And I love that she makes little hand made gifts for her siblings birthdays or for Christmas.

Every project is teaching her some new skills or makes her improve the one’s already learned.

So when we received a box of fun creative kits for tweens and teens from French brand Djeco I had one happy camper at home. Carefully checking out each kit and discovering her new creative sessions.

What did we get?

We got a cute gift wrapping kit that includes all kinds of little bits and bobs for beautiful packages and decoration. She made some jewelry, got a sewing kit that she is using at the moment to make little bunnies for her sisters for Christmas.
And more… let’s have a look at the pictures:

Colourful chalkboard walls

Colourful chalkboard walls
We all love to create a fun and interesting home for our families. Cosy, stylish and full of life. If we can add some creative aspects – perfect!

An easy option is the famous chalkboard wall. I showed you some inspiring spaces already and I still think that this one of the best solutions. And you know what, the whole chalkboard wall thing just got better. Like a million times better.
Why?

Because Farrow & Ball is now in the game too. On the top of the game actually because now you can get chalkboard paints in all colours of the rainbow. The Farrow & ball rainbow if you know what I mean. Because they do have the best colours. No question!

Done with the black and ready for some cool colours. Especially with Spring just ahead of us, this is so good!

For the occasion I found some more inspiring spaces for you:

Konfetti Kids – new kids store in Barcelona

Konfetti Kids - new kids store in Barcelona
Barcelona is THE city at the moment and if you happen to live there {lucky you!} or planning a trip, then take note now: there is a new kids shop called KONFETTI KIDS that opened just recently in the Barrio Gotico disctrict. And it looks really super inviting and fun.

And so does the online shop by the way, I love the illustrations.

Claudia is originally from Bergamo, Italy.
After her studies she collected some professional experiences in women’s wear, where she had the chance to travel and fall in love with Berlin.
Five years ago Claudia decided to move to Berlin, met her husband Michael and in March 2015  their daughter Lilien was born.

Since Lilien Claudia’s interest in the world of kids wear started to grow. Thinking about quality and good design and how to combine both. The starting point for her ‘project’.

In 2016, the family decided to move to Barcelona and in May this year Claudia found the perfect location for KONFETTI KIDS in a beautiful street of the Barrio Gotico and her project became finally real!

So, yes, the concept was conceived in Berlin and is now based in Barcelona. A concept store for the whole family with a hand-picked selection of international brands for children that reflects her passion for good quality and design.
