Summer Sale at Loja Dada – the best pieces!

loja dada
The last weeks (months even) have been difficult for all of us. However running a small business through this crisis is an especially task force.

A good friend of mine and owner of children’s boutique Loja Dada who has all the most wanted brands in her shop just started her summer sale. Therefore I did a little selection of the best pieces you can now grab for a great price.
Helping you to add some gorgeous summer pieces to your child’s wardrobe and helping a small business to survive.

Bobo Choses is a no brainer but if you ask me you should go for the jumpers and t-shirts. The summer ones are always fun and great value.

Tiny Cottons has a great colour palette this season and lots of great stripes.

Play Up has lots of gorgeous baby things, but not only. I spotted some cool pieces for mums as well.

Newcomer The Campamento makes me happy with some lovely dresses and sunny prints.

Happy Shopping!


Oh, if you happen to be in Lisbon, their showroom is open with all rules and restrictions in place:
Located near Rato, in the Principe Real Neighbourhood
Rua Nova de São Mamede,58A
1250-173 Lisbon

22 jolly things for your July!

22 jolly things for your July

Two weeks ago I realised, with horror, that I missed a Friday list for this June! One of my favourite articles and I missed it. And this probably is the a good proof how the current situation took over my days…

And even so I did not manage to prepare a Friday list right on the ‘correct’ day, it is ready and here for you to enjoy just before July starts!

As usual packed with fashion, reads, news, interiors and more for the whole family.

Fun and delightful clothes for children


Ola! Just did Spanish school work with Leonor and Antoine and I am learning with them because my Spanish is very ‘small talk’ limited. And it’s neighbour, Portugal, is home to some wonderful children’s brand including Piupiuchick.

And I want to show you their latest collection today. If you are still looking for some great summer pieces these are perfect. (and on sale)

Mariana, Inês and Marta are making fun and delightful clothes for children out of Porto since 2012. From comfy clothes to cool accessories, lots of passion, creativity and humour for the best childhood days.

The two sisters, Inês and Mariana, and a very good friend, Marta, started when Portugal was in a severe financial crisis and they wanted to bring something fun, and light into the homes and on children:





The heart socks are the cutest!







Piupiuchick is a tribute to childhood. Each collection is a story that we want to tell our children. Stories about our childhood: how we lived, what were our plans, what was the music we loved and the TV shows we watched when we were their age. Above all, it’s an attempt to show them how important these memories that they are creating now are.’

As you know I love independent, small brands that are full of creativity and life. And that focus on the sustainable and fair factor in their production. Away from the high street and more for personality.

Happy Summer to you all!

Summer Staples for the whole family!

Summer Staples for the whole family!
We had the most gorgeous month of May and even so we are not going far (for now) we got our summer dresses, shorts, and sandals out.

And when talking to friends, mostly online, I heard a lot of questions about clothes shopping for children because things start to become small and/or too warm.

Can there be a better invitation than that to browse around and gather some lovely summer staples for the little ones? And to make it even more fun, I added some cool stuff for mums too. My personal wish list so to say…

So, there is a summer list for baby, then for boys and girls, teens, and last but not least for mums. And if you have been around here for a bit you know how much I love the smaller brands, and the more timeless and classic with a modern touch look. Things that you can and will keep for a long time, pass on to siblings, and things that will become real staples in the wardrobe.
