... Fall in love with Paumes, an amazing family run Japanese publishers who work in close contact with artists and designers in Europe on different editorial projects.( The magazine itself is in Japanese but definitely worth a look ). Paumes is also responsible for a superb online boutique called " Galerie Doux Dimanche" where I discovered Anne Hubert's wonderful range (above)... The liberty cushion just stole my heart... I so so want it!!!http://paumes.chicappa.jp/blog/

... This amazing editorial was shot in London for Milk magazine, anytime I feel like some visual inspiration I reach for Milk online and search their archives for some great editorials... This serie was called Blur and was inspired by British culture with school blazers, trench coats and high socks and not to forget some pretty fabulous wall paper!www.milkmagazine.net

... As a child Astrid-Fia is fascinated by Japanese culture and the 40's to 60's... As an adult she creates clothes for her brand Little Miss Y. All her garments are made by hand with vintage fabrics... This label really reminds me of my friend Jodi who also goes mad for this vintage style...

... Online shops for kids are popping up all over the world... This one called "Little Vintage" is based in France and specialises in vintage pieces, from furniture to clothing and toys... Visiting this site is like taking a trip down memory lane... I clearly remember playing with my Fisher Price phone...

... A brand to watch out for, Douuod, comes to us from Italy... What can I say, I got completely sold by their skinny jeans and "their less is more" style for kids... This is their winter collection so the colours are very muted which I love right now...www.douuod.it

... Some dolls, like some people, seem to have more personalities than others... And these handmade dolls just stand out, they are just so unique with their cute hair cut and quirky clothes... They have all been created by Malaysian artist Tako aka Evangelione... She has a really great blog where you can stay up to date with her latest creations and if you wish to buy one of these fab dolls, go to her Etsy shop:
