Baby Z’s Style Corner featuring Mothercare Philippines

People ask me where do I get my fab outfits. My mommy buys it from her list of “trusted” shops. She has quite a few on her list (she can be very picky!). One of the stores in her list is Mothercare Philippines. The brand may sound like it sells only hardcore baby stuff, like cribs, potty seats, diaper bags, and the other essentials, but guest what?! They also sell cute clothes for babies and toddlers. And these clothes are really very fashion forward, too!

I think I featured one onesie from Mothercare in the past: http://mommyginger.com/2013/05/hot-pink-stripes.html

I also have dresses from Mothercare and I love all of them. Here they are:

I can’t wait to wear more outfits from Mothercare Philippines. I overheard mommy say that I’m going to have a shoot with Kuya Inigo (Son of Tita Frances of MommyTopaz) for Mothercare today. I hope that pushes through! I’m so excited!

Love lots,

Chateau de Sable Philippines

Baby Z’s Style Corner fans, a lovely day to you! Have you been to SM Aura? It’s like heaven for a tiny trendsetter like me. There are a lot of shops that I can go to to buy new clothes (or rather, for mommy to buy me new clothes). One of the cute stores that I have come across is Chateau de Sable.

I love the clothes in this store. What I love is that they use subtle colors that make these clothes timeless and classics in their own right. The creator of Château de sable (meaning sandcastle) is Stéphanie Lemaire, who is French. She comes from a family who works in the textile industry. Looking at the clothes that she designed, I think that she really achieved what she wanted — to design a collection representing both childhood innocence and joy.

Mommy wanted to buy me a romper when we visited the store, but I heard her tell daddy that’s she’ll buy one for me for my fifth month birthday. I can’t wait to wear the romper that she’ll buy!

I also saw their dresses and sweaters, and they are all gorgeous! Check these out!

After a few days, it was such a blessing that I received this gift from my Mamou. I love these socks. They fit just right and you can really see that they are made of quality materials.

Party Crafts by Ava Promo

I am amazed at how parties of kids have evolved. When I was young, we didn’t have food or candy carts of famous brands in the event. The most that we had during those days were our typical ‘dirty ice cream carts’ (which we knew wasn’t really ‘dirty’). Nowadays, activities that you can do during these children’s parties also have also changed. Before, we were happy with the ‘pabitins’, ‘pokpok palayok’ and the games of ‘bring me’s’ (which is still popular).

I find it amusing though to see art activities like the ones being provided by Party Crafts by Ava. Check out this set up:

Ceramic painting

They provide Ceramic magnet painting, foam frame decorating, sun visor or crown/tiara decorating, etc. These activities are really unique and children just love them!

Baby Blue Jeans

“Blue jeans…
Alam mo ba ano ang ibig sabihin ng ating pagsisikap sa ‘skwela
Blue jeans…
Ba’t ‘di na lang iwanan ang pag-aaral at sama-sama tayong magsaya

Ngunit ang kabataan daw ay kayaman
‘Wag daw basta’t itapon at papabayaan
Kaya magsikap tayo habang may panahon at
Mag-aral at mag-ipon tayo ng karunungan” – Apo Hiking Society

Happy Friday once again!

I’ve been hearing mommy say that she still can’t fit into her jeans. I’m sure she’ll gain back her figure in a few months. I heard that doctor tell her that she can’t workout yet. She can only work out when I’m already 6 months old. Poor mommy! I’m thankful though that she bought me this nice pair of baby blue jeans from Cotton On.

The jeans had little hearts on it. Mommy also bought me my first collared shirt from Cotton On Kids, too, to pair it with the blue jeans. It’s a white top with hot pink prints.

To go with my attire, I matched it with my Celestina & Co. blue violet bow, and black and white Tippy Toes socks that look like shoes (how convenient!). People love these socks and notice it all the time!

How about you? Do you have your own pair of baby blue jeans?

Love lots,

Baby Fashionista, Zeeka

Wall Candy Art Stickers

Babies grow up fast. When we decided to have the room of Zeeka fixed and painted, we had that in mind. Most of the thing that are in Zeeka’s room can be changed and adjusted to fit any little girls age. Of course, we wanted to customize, so what we did is we decorated her room with wall stickers.

If you want to see how we decorated Zeeka’s Nursery, please do check out this link:

I recently came across additional stickers that would look lovely in Zeeka’s room. I hurriedly stuck it to the wall, since I was so excited to see Zeeka’s reaction.

While sticking it, Zeeka kept on looking at me, then looking at the stickers then at me again (back and forth).

I visited the site of Wall Candy Stickers (http://wallcandystickers.com/). They have beautiful designs that yo can choose from. The idea started when a guy named Joe, who rents a condominium unit in Makati, wanted to decorate up his place. He was looking for an easy and cost efficient way to decorate since his occupancy is only temporary. His girlfriend, Valerie, on the other hand, had a cousin who recently gave birth and wanted an affordable way to decorate her baby’s nursery. They then thought of a perfect worry-free and low-cost solution which was to decorate the condo unit and the nursery using Wall Candy Art Stickers!

These stickers are quality adhesive wall décor that have passed European safety standards approved, are non-toxic and lead-free, and will not damage your wall or glass surface at all. They are safe to place on walls that can be reached by children. What I love about these stickers is that they are very easy to use and apply plus they are removable, and reusable.

How to install the sticker:
1. Prep wall: Ensure he surface is smooth, dry and free from dust and dirt. What I personally do is I wipe the surface with alcohol, but wiping with a clean cloth is enough.
2. Plan your design: Layout your design before applying stickers to the wall.
3. Get your sticker on: Smooth on with your hand, working diagonally across the sticker from one corner to another. Smooth out creases and bubbles as you go along.
4. Sit back and enjoy your new look!

Wall Candy Art Stickers has more than 50 designs available with the more unique ones being the glow in the dark and chalkboard / whiteboard designs. Prices are affordable at P650- P950 only per pack.

Here are some of my favorites. Pictures are from http://wallcandystickers.com/:
