Camp gear

by Sofia   -   in Good things for kids  Shopping

I hope you all had a lovely weekend. We did not make it to the island yet but we had a great family weekend in the city including a lunch on a sunny restaurant terrace, ice-creams & bowling amongst other things. The Spring is also bringing all the Spring recitals from gymnastics & ballet and of course school & day care too. So excited to watch my girls perform! I will be on a lookout for little bouquets of Lily of the Valley or Sweet Peas for them to present after their performances. I think both are lovely for little ones.

Then comes summer and things like camp for Cotton Candy. We stocked up on a few basic things for those day camp activities. Like a new cap & sweatpants and a hoodie etc. Obviously depending on the weather the kids will be in t-sirts & shorts or summer dresses but there is a possibility that sweats will be needed too as this is the Finnish summer we are talking about. I was on a lookout for a very basic one in navy that I think looks great with white Superga sneakers we already have and with baby blue or light pink. It´s just such a classic. We found ours from Petit Bateau´s collection. Cotton Candy and I are both loving the cap. I bought them great summer hats from our London trip but ( “obviously” and “dah” and “silly mom”) it is not suitable for school or camp just for the beach. But this cap definitely is. I have always been a cap person and used them all my life myself. I think they look so cute on girls ( and obviously boys too… all my puppy crushes all the way to my husband have been cap wearing guys). This one is perfect both in colouring and shape. Very classic!

Are your kids attending camp this year? Ours is a half day camp for two weeks. There would have been the gymnastics camp as an option but this one has most of her school friends so she chose this one ( that sounds perfect with a trip to go swimming and Linnanmäki amusement park and lot´s of crafting amongst other fun things). We looked through a leaflet of camps and there were incredible things for basically everyone from tennis to dogs ( you can take your own pups with you) to whatever you can imagine. In Finland the summer break from school is over 2 months and most parents don´t have such long holidays so the camps are fantastic for that!

Just wishing you a very, very happy weekend! What got me into such a great mood? The country house is being opened today! And with the best of luck we will all go there on Saturday. It´s my happy thought!

Can´t wait to stand on that rock. And let my soul rest. I love that the place is so special to all of us that even the girls get super excited. They miss it too.

xoxo,

Tylliunelmia

by Sofia   -   in Good things for kids  Shopping

Oletteko jo valinneet teidän perheessänne kevätjuhlamekot? Meillä on kevätjuhlia tänä  vuonna kaksin kappalein kun ensin on päiväkodin kevätjuhla ja sitten vielä koulunkin kevätjuhla. Meidän juhlamekkomme tulevat tänä vuonna Nona K´lta ja ne debytoivat jo pääsiäisen sunnuntailounaalla. Nämä olisivat täydelliset myös ristiäisiin tai häihin vaikka ihan morsiusneidoille. Mekot ovat hyvin klassiset shampanjan valkeat. Yläosa satiinia ja alaosassa päällä tylliä. Simone mekkoihin kuuluu kauniit rusetit vyötäisille, mutta me tilasimme omamme ilman niitä ja puemme ne leveiden satiininauhojen kanssa jotka sidotaan rusetille selkäpuolelle, koska tytöt käyttävät näiden kanssa heille teettettyjä kruunuja. Nämä mekot ovat hyvin klassiset ja malli sopii kauniisti erilaisille ruumiinrakenteille ja myös hyvin sekä ihan pikkutytöille, että jo vähän vanhemmillekin. Täydelliset juhlamekot siis. Nämä eivät myöskään ole vain kesämekot vaan pehmeä sävy sopii hyvin myös talven hienompiin juhliin. Kevätjuhlaan puen ne kuitenkin tytöille sään salliessa kauniiden juhlavien nilkkasukkien ja nilkkaremmikenkien kanssa. Pitkiin hiuksiin laitetaan muutama loiva kihara ja ohuet kranssit tasapainotellaan pään päälle. Näen jo tytöt juoksemassa koulun pihalla hiukset hulmuten innoissaan pian koittavan kesäloman alusta.
