Mini Spa

by Sofia   -   in DIY projects  Good things for kids

The girls and I have done our little spa treatments forever. It has started from the baby massage and continued their whole life. Some kids like physical touch more than others and mine have always loved to be sitting on our laps, cuddling, having us draw on their backs and so forth. Our mini spa is no different. It´s more about a lovely relaxing feeling than an actual facial.






 The cutest morning robes from Petite Plume.


I like to do a whole set up with candles, special drinks ( water or tea is great) and relaxing music. And the girls do spa treatments for me too.  I recently found a great face massage tutorial on the Vanderohe highlights under sculpt that my girls enjoyed ( I did a light touch version). I also do a back & head massage. My girls favourite? When they lie on their back and I sit behind their head. I  put my hand under their back and slide my hands upwards from the tailbone, fingers by the spine, so that they lie very relaxed and I carry their weight. Continue all the way up to the point were the neck & head meet. The movement is from baby massage so you may know it. Try it! It makes them feel so nice and relaxed. I made a lovely little lounge area for them to chill at on our bed afterwards with their cucumber water. This like many other things does not have to take hours off your day. Just a 20 minute spa session is plenty for a child. In one hour I will be able to set up, do their ” treatments” and clean up.

Are you trying to find something cute and fun to keep your ( smaller) kids active? Here are a few printables I found with links for you.

Riley Sheehey designed this super cute seek & find game for Dixie Design. You can find it here. There is also a colouring page you can print too.



This Tartine et Chocolat has made the cutest little village you can print and assemble. Just use a stick of glue and scissors. And if you prefer a bit more colour then colour the village with all the crayons in your box to make it bright and fun before assembly.

Bath robes

by Sofia   -   in Good things for kids  Shopping

Our girls grew out of their robes so it was time to order some new ones. I love a fluffy bathrobe but as mine also use them as morning robes especially on weekends we decided on classic flannel this time. I have been waiting to order Petite Plume robes for them for a few years now. Ours have not arrived yet but I hope they will be as classic in real life as they are in pictures.

Cotton Candy chose the timeless white with navy monogramming.



Bubble Gum wanted to have the pink gingham robe with light pink monogramming. 


And I wish my girls had needed  new slippers too as these are too cute ( also available in adult sizes).


They also have amazing pyjamas, nighties, slippers and sleeping masks. They do girls, boys, infants and everything is available for adults too. They even have a maternity line. If the robes are as nice as I hope then I will be ordering some new sleepwear next.
