Polish label Efvva recently travelled to Japan to take part in Playtime Tokyo for the first time. The purpose of the trip was business but obviously the culture and style was not to be missed. The Japanese economy is enjoying a steady and long period of growth, however this isn’t the case in the children’s clothing market with household consumption continuing to decline and the birth rate at its lowest. That said designer and founder Ewa Wrobel-Hultqvist shares with Pirouette her very positive business and cultural experiences from her time spent in the Japanese capital.
Whilst Katie was away at Playtime New York, Lulu and Hattie spent a week (with their Dad) at the world famous Edinburgh fringe, or The Fringe as it’s known. With well over 3000 shows taking place about the city Edinburgh claims to host “the single biggest celebration of arts and culture on the planet”.

There was no competition as to the destination for my sister’s 4oth birthday celebration. Her decision was both swift and decisive – Appplecross, Scotland. Having been there many moons ago as a child my recollection of her chosen destination was a little scratchy. Though amongst those hazy memories a really high scary road with sheer drops seemed to be the clearest recollection. Post trip, I’m so pleased to have been reacquainted with this truly magical piece of the world, thank you Em. So let’s introduce you to this wonderful little remote part of the world, so you can enjoy it too.
Planning a trip to Paris this Summer en famille ? if it’s a yes then the URBANITO Paris Family City Guide would be a very useful travelling companion. This well conceived guide is aimed at making France’s capital city a fun, cultured and stress free experience with the kids. It does this by providing the parents with travelling advice, places to visit, eat and look at, all from city insiders suggestions. A favourite touch is that on every map nearby WC’s are marked so to be located quickly, sparing children and parents undue stress related red faces. The guide is brilliantly designed, and contains lots of interesting info, so let’s have a look and find out where we can pick one up.
