Rainy Day Activities

Looking out the window today is a there is a misty haze of drizzling rain outside.  It is safe to say that my outlook and feel for each day is totally affected by what is happening with the weather outside my window!  Today all I can think about is sitting in the living with a blanket and cuppa and doing some nice quiet activities with my little guy.

Here is some rainy day inspiration (If you click on the image below it will take you to tutorial! x)

DIY Rain Clouds - Minieco
Make your own cardboard Mailbox (Once made there is totally time for a tea while you watch the kidlets play! xo)

Paper Garland to brighten your day by Minieco

Pom Pom fun

I love making things, I love creating, but my favourite is doing quick, cheap crafts that make a big impact.
I have made these pom poms for several baby showers,birthdays and with the boys a couple of times (though that was slightly more stressful !!! a one and a two year old with scissors and lots of tissue paper = not relaxing fun!)
I promise you they are incredibly easy to make if you follow these simple instructions .
They can be used for decoration in nursery's and children's room also.
Here is a link to one of my favourite nursery of all times. I'm sure I would have copied completely had I have ever had a girl instead of stinky boys
Don't they look fab?!
I always get my tissue paper from spotlight as its the cheapest I've found and they have quite a good range of colours, but you can buy tissue paper in bulk over trade-me or stationary shops if you were wanting to make ALOT!

DIY Car Seat

Wow I found this very cool idea via pinterest.  The lovely lady over at Ex Patria, put together this tutorial of how to recover your tired looking car seat.

I will go as far to say that 90% of new car seats look pretty aweful so if I have some spare time oneday (wouldnt that be lovely!), I am definitely going to give this a go!  Click on the image to see how she did it!

Project outdoor play area

I am right into my Vege garden at the moment, it is tucked into a little spot around the side of our house.  Its such a nice place to hang out in the shade and play with Kahu. 

Since 1/2 the space is taken up with my gardens I thought it only far that the other 1/2 could be turned into a fun outdoor play area!

I am going to work on this for the next few weeks, but in the meantime I will share a few images that are inspiring me!

Most images from Ohdeedoh!

Nettle & Wolf Winter 2012

I love that the range is lovingly handmade.  The clothes are practical but super cute.  Ranges now available for pre order! xox

Friday Winners!!! x

Congrats to Shelly Howard & Rebecca Goad, thank you for submitting photos of our products in action! xxx

Catch & Kiss Underwear

I had  been dreading toilet training as I have a VERY strong willed child.  We tried a few times and it was just a nightmare.

To my surprise just before Christmas he just started going to the toilet.  We had a few accidents but by day 3 he pretty much had it under control!

So the fun part starts and we got to track down some super cool underwear (ie superhero pants).  Lucky for me and Naked Baby I know someone who has an underwear range... Yep Catch & Kiss are now online at our store!

Win yourself a $25 Voucher!!!

Would you like to win a $25 Naked Baby Voucher?

We will be drawing a winner every Friday starting this week over on our Facebook page! All you have to do is post a photo to our Naked Baby Facebook wall or email an image to of a product you have bought from us in action!

Get creative, have some fun, we cant wait to see what you come up with!

Off to a good start!

So Mr Naked Baby and I are on the let's try for baby no 2 bandwagon. We never really tried not to get pregnant after Kahu, so as his 3rd birthday looms, and no baby no. 2 is not here, I think we need to start getting serious.

I suffer from Polycystic ovary syndrome and Endometriosis, which means getting pregnant is not an easy task. After years of seeing specialists my stepmum found a hormone specialist who proscribed some progesterone cream and a diet (ah how I hate diets!)

Anyway 12 months later Kahu was under construction and 9 months later he made his grand appearance!

So as hubby reminded me the diet was essential I have bitten the bullet and am 3 weeks in! I feel more energetic and generally happier all round.

The diet consists of cutting all estrogen causing foods (as I produce WAY too much). So goodbye wheat, rice, potatoes, sugar, banana's, grapes.... Oh how I loved you all.

Breakfast had always been my downfall. I love nothing better than a slice of toast smothered in butter and honey. I have made myself a list of 3 easy breakfasts which I rotate and you know what I am loving it and not even missing the toast.

I am loving the fresh fruit ie blueberries, apples, pears etc with some yummy natural yoghurt, topped with pumpkin seeds and cinnamon!

Stay tuned as I share our journey with you!

Chalkboard & Stripes... 2 things I adore in 1 room!

Wow I just spotted this fabulous kids room on Pinterest! (I seriously love that website!).

I must confess that I am totally addicted to stripes and Chalkboard paint.  As I sit here typing I am secretly dreaming of running upstairs and re doing Kahu's room to look just like this.  (Remember the awesome bed my friends hubby built? Well I think it looks pretty similar to the bed pictured here!).

Rachel of New York nursery tales thought up this fabulous room for her son.  I personally cant wait to see what she dreams up next!

Felt Tip Pen Ink Art!

I am not sure about you but we always end up with a multitude of pens that have been unlovingly strewn across the room and left without their precious lids!

I just found this awesome idea on Mini Eco (I adore this blog!), I know you will love it too!

Just pop the unloved pens in a pottle of water like so overnight...
