I've just ordered one of these for Felix and I can't wait to see it. The Stockholm based Birth Poster company have created this amazing concept whereby you can have an illustration drawn of your baby at scale 1:1 (which is obviously actual size.) They offer the artwork in 6 different drawings, whether it be a line drawing or a rough sketch and there are two positions that you can choose from. You then have all your baby's information at the bottom of the drawing; you can choose the measurement/weight units and you can also choose the language. I absolutely love the concept, it's just beautiful and what a special thing; to have a reminder of how little that baby was when he/she was born. You can create the poster online, so you can see exactly how it will look before it goes on your wall. Just amazing.

Just arriving in store now. The world rug by OYOY. We sold so many before they even arrived! For each rug sold, a donation is made to WWF, specifically to preserve the habitat of Polar Bears. I love everything about this product. Seriously.
Some words on the design from Norm: "Prime includes two bathtubs and a sink design that is a contemporary interpretation of the antique tubs. The soft outer shape of all the items is inspired by how the pressure of water shapes an elastic material like e.g. a filled water balloon".

So how is your new year going? Are you keeping up with your goals and intentions? Or maybe you're not and that's cool :) All is great here. Life is as busy as always, we're the middle of buying a house so stress levels may be higher than normal! But, we've settled into a comfortable routine now we're back in the UK and it's actually really nice. Is there such a thing as too much travelling and moving around? Yes! Home is my favourite place in the world (wherever home may be).

So the festivities are over and as always I have this overwhelming need to start afresh, get more organised and set more goals. Albeit repetative, it's a pivotal part of the year for me as it forces a mini cleanse of everything around me. Clearing the house, relocating Felix's surplus toys (and half my wardrobe) to the charity pile, reorganising drawers and kitchen cupboards; the list goes on. I move forward into the new year with a fresh approach, excited about the months ahead. New house (keep those fingers crossed for me), travel and seeing my baby bear grow some more. This is going to be a good one ;)
