Bee Wilson’s book First Bite: How We Learn to Eat, is required reading for parents. We are not born knowing what to eat. We all have to learn it as children sitting expectantly at a table. For our diets to change, we need to relearn the food experiences that first shaped us. It is there that we develop our passions and our disgusts, our ideas about which flavours go with what, and how big a portion is. Growing up, we define ourselves through our tastes.
Misha and Puff creates knits handmade by a group of knitters in Lima, Peru. The brand works with the best natural fibers only and their merino is incredibly soft.

Robots will replace us. We’re facing an uncertain future of Artificial Intelligence which at best, will render whole swathes of humanity redundant.

For Spring Summer 2016, Caramel baby&child takes a nostalgic wander through the archives for the latest collection. Referencing a 70s spirit of bohemia, the brand explores three strands from the decade that style has clearly not forgotten: fragile lilac and orchid prints, carob brown and chambray denim, and delicate embroidery details.
