Making Bathtime fun and hygienic {Hevea Bath toys Review}

Let’s talk bath time today as it is Saturday and week-end means Spa Session with my daughters. As a bachelor, bath time meant for me : relaxation, bath salt, taking care of myself and when I had my first baby, my understanding of bathing literally changed and made a loop. Bath now was all about having fun, playing and enjoying precious moments with my baby. The bathroom was now a park -aka Bathplayroom –  which needed some toys. My partner and I had a clear idea of bath toys: I guess we have been a bit brain washed by TV adverts and movies, Yes, because believe it or not all we see enter our minds and influence our choices. We decided to buy a bundle of plastic bath toys with the very popular YELLOW DUCK! Where does this come? No idea. We wanted a yellow duck. We filled our bathroom with some of these toys and enjoyed a lot –relatively lot– of play. After few months, we started to notice some black sediment starting to …

Neobulle Deauville Collection Dune Gris Ring Sling Review

After my first try into Ring slings with the Didysling, and because I was not entirely satisfied I wanted to explore more and try another one. It was exactly when Neobulle launched their brand new Deauville Collection. It was love at first sight. I was also in love with the collection name that was bringing me back to my childhood. Yes, I know I am an emotional buyer. I grew up in the North-West suburb of Paris and every weekend when the sun was shinning, my parents will bring us to Deauville. Deauville is a seaside town in Normandy. We had lots of lovely memories there and the prints of the new Neobulle collection reminds me exactly the Deauville seaside! Neobulle is a french company specialised in babywearing and baby products.  Their wraps are handwoven and for this Deauville Collection, they got Rugiada Petrelli involved who is a fabulous textile designer. This is what she says about her collaboration with Neobulle: “Deauville is the new collection of patterns that I designed for Néobulle a company that produces baby wraps. All jacquard woven in cotton …

Indio Aurora Didymos Didysling Review

I used only my My Stretchy wrap for the last five years and this time round with Baby3, I am enjoying Babywearing and getting more and more confident. I used to be afraid to bring my wrap for our car trips but it was before. When I struggled with breastfeeding – well, let’s say that it is not easy to juggle between a baby that just wants to feed almost all the time and two other children, a home, etc.- I was looking for a sling in which I could breastfeed easily free hands. The dream! I asked some lovely Babipurians Moms – Babipur has a very friendly group – for some advices. A great one was “Breastfeeding and Babywearing are two different skills and you need first to master both of them before considering doing both together”. This is the best advice I have ever received and I am really grateful for all the support I had when I was truly lost in my breastfeeding journey. I listened this wonderful advice and decided to try a …

EcoSnack Wrap for Lunch Boxes and Sunny days!

Sunny days are still here and we all love a bit of a day out, to the park, beach or zoo or anywhere else you fancy ! September is also coming fast and it is already {unfortunately} time to think again Lunch boxes for work or four little Bambinos. Back to school very soon, we love green alternatives. So instead of wrapping our  -or our children- sandwiches in plastic bags or foil, why not try some more sustainable alternatives?   One of the alternatives available is Fabric wraps. I have seen a lot since a while and always wondered if it was really keeping food fresh. You can always use plastic box, but we try to avoid plastic: I am just saying we try 🙂 But sometimes, you just do not want to take a big plastic box and you are looking for something more flexible. We have tried Eco Snack Wrap that I have discovered through the website of LivingNaturally who stock them. “Ecosnackwrap is the sole UK distributor of http://www.4myearth.com.au range of Sandwich …

Green Beauty: Bye bye shower gels, Friendly Soap now takes care of all my tribe!

It is a long time I have not shared with you a bit of green beauty tips. Did I stop? Absolutely not. I have been just very busy testing a lot of fabulous products for my family and I. As a good tester, I take my time to gather a maximum of informations and share with you an in-depth experience. Because beauty is a bit complicated and beauty products have a tendency to be very good when you start with them and after few weeks of use, you can get very confused and change your mind. Are you a shower gel addict/user? This simple question can elevate a lot of opinions. Most of people love them and swear just by them. Did you know that: “Gels first appeared in British bathrooms in the Seventies. Today (2011) some 200 million bottles are sold in Britain every year”* There was a time, I loved them and used them a lot. My favorite ones were those of well know french fragrance designers. I enjoyed the fact that they always leave …

Taste of the Med for our Little ones , New Organic Baby Food Brand “Piccolo”!

The first time we had to introduce solids in one of our Baba’s little life was 5 years ago. I can tell you that I did not know how much it will be SO hard to find some ready made baby food that will meet our needs! Never I will have thought that eggs and other products will always be in the ingredients list! NEVER, really. Why to be worried by eggs? Baba1 has been diagnosed with Cow Milk protein, Eggs, oats and soya allergies when she was 3 months old. Since that moment, we started to read all the ingredients lists madly and annoyingly. Annoyingly as we have discovered that some ingredients are a bit everywhere with no reason. Processed food is really strange and manufacturers are playing a strange game here. Do you remember the beginning of our green journey? I forgot this step, this is our real STEP 2: no more processed food or ready made meals {sometimes, we do, to please me when I got tired of cooking but shhhhh… 🙂 let’s keep the …

Close Parent Pop-in V2 New Generation Reusable Nappies Review

This week I want to talk to you about Pop-ins reusable nappies. Why? Simply because I love them and have used them a lot. I will be completely honest with you , when I was pregnant of Baba2 and started my search for great nappies , I have not heard at all about them. Maybe and surely because my main references were Blogs and Vlogs that are mainly US Based. So how did I hear about them? I am quite a shy lady and was really anxious about going to a nappucchinos { not everyone is at ease surrounded by strangers – being a Muslim with a veil does not help if you see what I mean}. When I meet new people, they always assume who I am , where I am from and how I live, which is quite annoying and challenging in the same time. I have my own history like any other woman on this earth and deserve a bit of empathy… Well, that is why I usually like blogging and emails as people …
