INSPIRATION :: Babiekins Magazine Print Issue Hits Stores June 24

Babiekins Print Issue 2 - Available on newsstands 24 June 2013Mark your calendars, ladies and gents! I’m excited to announce the newest PRINT issue of Babiekins Magazine is set to hit newsstands June 24! It’ll be available ’round the world (Barnes & Nobles, Books-a-Million, and select Target stores in the US), but if you can’t find a copy in your part of the globe, let me know and I’ll help you find one.

For this issue, I interviewed some of my very favorite Instagram mamas — Whitney Reeder @whitneyreeder, Deborah Gordon @apieceofcake82, and Claire Moir @dancelittleliar (thank you ladies!)

I also talked with Sue Kleine @sueshine about her precious autistic daughter Sammy Lu in one of the most heartwarming interviews I’ve ever had the privilege to be a part of. On the fashion front, I chatted with Katherine of the American children’s label Wovenplay — and oh yes, Aveline’s airline travel antics make an appearance in these pages too.

And the photography this time around? Just plain-old gorgeous. Wait until you see Deb Schwedhelm’s editorial!

There’s more, but I wouldn’t want to spoil all the surprises, would I? Suffice to say the amazing people who put this issue together are quite possibly the most talented and creative magazine team out there (why yes, I am biased.) I’m so delighted to be a part of a project like this!

LIFE IN PHOTOS :: This Kid

June 2013 - Aveline in headband and icecream shirt

This kid is pretty great.

Even if she DID moo — loudly! — through the entire dairy aisle last time I was at Target.

She’s been extra interested in “taking pih-uhs” lately, so of course we did the only logical thing. We gave her a blog.

Introducing…Aveline {and a } Camera, a website of photographs taken by a two-year-old.

INSPIRATION :: Spring/Summer 2013 Toast UK Home+Home Catalogue

Thanks to these images from Toast UK’s Spring/Summer 2013 Home+Home Catalogue, I’m dreaming of a nice seaside picnic — one that involves crusty bread and jam. And maybe a nap in a breezy riad, waking up to Moroccan mint tea before a boat ride where I just sit on a heap of cushions and don’t have to row at all.

Hey, there aren’t any rules against dreaming, right? :)

INSPIRATION :: Bunting (and Petra Bindel)

I love bunting. I do. I don’t care if it’s viewed as overdone or trendy; it makes me happy and adds a bit of bright happiness to any wall. In our house, there’s bunting in Aveline’s room (of course), the bathroom, over the laundry area and even in the kitchen! So, naturally, I found myself drawn to these images from photographer Petra Bindel. She’s an incredible photographer; I’ve scrolled through this gallery several times today. Gorgeous!
