Family Style Spring Break in Charleston, SC

Family Style Spring Break in Charleston, SC

We visited Charleston, SC for the girls’ spring break this year. Our original plan involved a couple of beach days at one of the many beautiful islands near Charleston but the weather never quite warmed up enough to do so. We ended up staying in Charleston the entire time and made the most of what the charming city had to offer!

I had done extensive research on kid-friendly things to do in Charleston before we ventured there. Some of the activities that came up in the searches included: Children’s Museum of the Lowcountry, Fort Sumter, South Carolina Aquarium, etc. The girls vetoed all indoor museums since we had done enough museum-going in Boston all winter long.

The openness and ease of being in the outdoors is what we were all craving. Naturally, we decided to not plan anything and simply go with the flow. It was so freeing and just what we needed as a family.

Take a peek at our top 5 trip highlights below:

Malmo with kids

malmo with kids
Ok, this is actually so embarrassing that I am not sure what to say. Ha. I have a draft called ‘Malmo with Kids’ sitting in my back end for around 4 1/2 years. Yes! That long. Soon we are here for 5 years and I wanted to share some tips and stuff to do for ages. I receive e mails and questions about it on a regular basis and how practical would it be to just send a link :)
Now! Here we are. Clap Clap. Proud moment.

Let’s start with Paul & Paula’s guide to Malmo with kids. The best things to do, to see, to experience and and and… enjoy and when you are around, give me a shout!

Malmö is called the City of Parks which makes it perfect for a family to live here. It is a very green city and it is surrounded by forests. On top – it is a beach city too. From our apartment we can actually walk or take the bikes to the city beach called Ribbersborg beach. It is amazing to be able to go for a walk along the beach any time you want.

The city is stretched along the coast and you can cycle or drive all the way along the coast from the East End to the West End. Start at Vastra Hamnen and go all the way to Bunkeflostrand. A beautiful scenery will welcome you!

And when you are here, you have to plan these sights and stops:

Little Creative Factory store in Barcelona

little creative factory shop
At the end of January I went on a quick trip to Barcelona. Lucky me was invited to attend the Little Creative Factory fashion show for their A/W collection called ‘Horizons’.

And since the brand has a store in the city too, I went to have a look and took some pictures for you. Situated right in the heart of Barcelona, in the fashionable and artistic quarter El Born.

It is also always fascinating to see Cristina, the founder. A dynamic woman guided by her dreams and who is so very passionate about this adventure called Little Creative Factory.

With Julia Erz in Stuttgart

Stuttgart with kids
For the Autumn break we went to Stuttgart, Germany. In August I became an auntie for the first time and we were all very excited to go and see my brother and the new baby. My little brother {who is actually taller than me} with a baby, a new view, a new chapter and so much love and happiness seeing him enjoying his new ‘place’.

During this week we met another person for the first time. Julia Erz. Julia is a documentary family photographer and asked us if we would like to spend a day with her and her camera.

I really like her approach to photography. Honest, capturing authentic moments including a little mess and sibling chaos.

Living with four kids is fun, chaotic, usually crazy and very entertaining.  Very rare to have a quiet moment and when one little person takes your attention, you can be sure that a brother or sister is using the opportunity…

And this is what you can see in these photos.

Thank you Julia!

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.
