Petit Jour Paris

With just 7 weeks to go until we leave on our European holiday we are getting more excited by the day. Of course we are most looking forward to spending time with our Dutch family and friends (and eating our tummies round with delicious Dutch food!) but we’ve got plenty of other fun stuff planned too. We can’t wait to revisit Paris and explore the many beautiful spots, typical French streets full of character and special attractions, there is so much to love about Paris.

Can’t make it to Paris? Don’t worry, Australian online store Where Did You Get That? is bringing a piece of Paris to you with the divine Petit Jour Paris dinnerware range that arrived in store this week. Isn’t it just gorgeous?

Petit Jour Forest MugFeaturing stunning illustrations in warm, vibrant colours Petit Jour Paris is sure to delight even the most stubborn little eater. Petit Jour Paris dinnerware is made from strong, durable melamine (100% BPA free) and designed with small hands in mind, what a stylish way to encourage independent eating! There are several sweet themes to choose from: Jungle, Forest or Farm, which one is your favourite?

From delightful 4-piece or 5-piece gift sets to individual plates, bowls, mugs, cutlery, placemats and more, the handy mix and match collection allows you to create the perfect setting for every occasion. Sneakily I am coveting the whimsical Forest Gift Set for baby Hattie’s birthday, the colours and prints are simply amazing. Prices start at $7.95 up to $49.95.

Little Big Room

With only one week to go until our 23rd Big Birthday Bash giveaway comes to end I am starting to get very excited about drawing the lucky winner of that beautiful Little Big Room bedding set from Where Did You Get That?. It’s so much fun reading all the entries and seeing which styles are the current favourites. If you missed the original giveaway you can still read it here and get your entries in but if you’re in a rush you can also take a short cut and enter below, easy peasy.

LBR Girls 2

A lot of votes are going to the gorgeous Flowers design and I have to admit I am not surprised, it’s my personal fave too. The soft green and pink tones are absolutely delightful and perfect for a sweet girl, no matter what age. Just like all the other Little Big Room linen this bedding set is reversible so you can enjoy these two pretty looks for the same price, which one do you like most?

Little Big Room ButterfliesTo help you create the ultimate Little Big Room you can add a few, or all, of the matching decor pieces and really complete the look. A feature wall (or even just one banner) of Little Big Room wall paper is a very easy way to freshen up a plain wall, there are lots of stunning wall papers to choose from. For a super speedy (and less permanent) makeover why not decorate a blank space with some sweet wall stickers or replace your boring light by an eye catching light shade, they’re small changes that can make a big difference.

Little Big Room Maltese Light ShadeFor the boys it’s neck and neck between the Graphic and Checks Quilt Cover Set but Checks is slightly ahead. The funky geometrical design featuring neutral base tones with a bright pop of yellow is a welcome change from the classic navy and red you see in many boys bedrooms. Sharp and edgy on one side and soft and rounder on the reverse, change the look every time you change the bed.

All Little Big Room bedding sets ($99.95) are made from 100% cotton and contain a single bed quilt cover and matching pillow case, other accessories are sold separately so you can mix and match to your heart’s desire.

Big Birthday Bash – Day 23

For months the lovely girls at Where Did You Get That? have been tapping their toes and biting their fingernails, impatiently awaiting the arrival of the stunning Little Big Room range. Now it’s finally here and it was most definitely worth the wait. Created by French designer label Djeco this divine range of children’s bed linen and room decor is sure to transform any kids bedroom from boring and plain into a wonderful space that’s full of character and style.

Little Big Room Girls

The Little Big Room linen collection is split up in five beautiful themes to suit boys and girls of all ages. From vibrant Orient to pink Romantic and sweet Flowers and from funky Checks to bold Graphic, there is a perfect Little Big Room for everyone. The eye catching quilt covers and pillow cases are made from breathable, comfortable cotton and all styles are reversible, offering two stylish looks in one great product.

Little Big Room Boys

What I really love about the Little Big Room collection is that the colourful prints are not too childish, they would look great on a toddler’s first big bed and they would look just as awesome in a tween bedroom. Each theme features multiple colours making it easy to find decor pieces in the right colours to complete the look.

It’s been a while since I brought you an update on Ebulobo but today I’ve got news and let me tell you, it was worth the wait. A brand new delivery of Ebulobo toys has arrived from France and made it into the Coccinella store on Down That Little Lane, they’re soft, huggable and gorgeous as always and make the perfect buddy for your little one:

Super Monsieur Louloup

Even though he measures a very impressive 100cm in length this big wolf is far from scary. Kids will be running towards this cuddly Super Monsieur Louloup ($99.95) to give him a big squeeze and he has no big sharp teeth for grandma to worry about. Like all Ebulobo toys he is made with precious little bundles in mind, all of Europe’s strictest safety standards are met and he contains only safe and non-toxic elements for your peace of mind.

Trendy Monsieur LouloupWho said fairytales are old fashioned? Clearly this Trendy Monsieur Louloup (65cm, $59.95) knows his chances of eating Little Red Riding Hood for dinner are very small so he has brought along his mobile phone to order take away instead. Mr. Wolf has flexible long legs and arms that are the perfect size for little hands to hold on to and on his belly you’ll find a handy storage pouch for his phone, you didn’t know wolves could have pouches did you?

Little Bag BettyDo you remember Tightrope Betty from the Ebulobo Magic Circus Collection? Well she is back for another performance this season in the shape of this adorable Little Bag Betty ($39.95). Little girls can carry around there special treasures wherever they go in this sweet pink cord shoulder bag decorated with Betty in her pretty gold tutu. I’ve popped one of these away for my daughter’s upcoming birthday, she is going to love it!

Ebulobo WoodbearThis year Ebulobo has given old favourites Gustave, Louloup and Woodbear an extra snuggly makeover and transformed them into flat cuddly toys ($34.95), combining the eye catching look of Ebulobo toys with the soft, comfortable feel of snuggle blanket. Unlike with ordinary ’round’ soft toys there are less bumps and bulky shapes that could be uncomfortable to sleep on and it makes them more compact to pop in your bag too.

Belle & Sebastian

Belle & Sebastian is based on the much-loved 1965 children’s book which was later adapted into a popular French TV series. Set high in the French Alps during the Second World War, it is the timeless tale of a boy and his dog.

Six year old Sebastian lives on the mountainside with a kindly but gruff caretaker and no real family of his own. As such he is left to his own devices and is often found roaming the countryside. Belle is a wild mountain dog who has escaped from her cruel owner. The villagers have mistaken her for a “beast” that has been killing their sheep.

When Sebastian first crosses paths with Belle he must keep their friendship a secret and the two of them form an unshakeable bond. Their adventures take them through the mountains and ultimately they become pivotal in the successful escape of refugees fleeing Nazi Germany for the safety of Switzerland.

Belle & Sebastian was the second highest grossing French film to be released in France last year and has also captured the hearts and mind of movie lovers at the Alliance Française French Film Festival earlier this year.

Belle and Sebastian is showing at selected cinemas across Australia from July 3, 2014.
