latest purchases

The new Gio cot set in Aqua from DwellStudio.
The icon "helicopter" blanket was a bit of a splurge - it's cashmere silk! -

but figure it will last years (not six months like

so many other baby products out there).

DwellStudio's Transportation stroller blanket will

go perfectly with the Luce stroller, below.

Okay - so this was when the shopping frenzy took

control and I bought these soft toy

building blocks - but they're educational!!!

One of the best decisions yet - a Benetton Luce stroller -

they retail for only $399.95!!!

A gift from the real living team - simple, stylish

and gorgeous colours: thanks guys!!!

I think this baby will be arriving soon (famous last words, I know) but I had a "sign" this morning so we'll see what happens in the next couple of days. Thankfully I managed to get a last burst of shopping activity in yesterday - all in the name of gifts. My mum wanted to buy a cot set and after a very disappointing foray into David Jones department store and a few other baby shops I decided to select something from the DwellStudio range. They are head and shoulders above the other designs in terms of style. So couldn't resist to buy an icon knit blanket, stroller blanket and soft toy building blocks too! Also, was lucky enough to pick up my light and zippy stroller a few weeks ago - the Australian-designed Luce for Benetton (it's distributed by Born with style) - and received a gorgeous Oeuf bouncer from my work colleagues at real living as a gift.
