Beautiful and Poetic handmade creations: Scalaë

Mobile Baleine de Scalaë

This week, we received the beautiful new pieces from Scalaë, so what better time to introduce you to this beautiful French designer.

Scalaë was created by Laëtitia, in Marseille, the South of France. At first, Laëtitia was only creating small pieces and childrens accessories for herself and sharing the results on her blog. Her creations however did not go unnoticed and quite soon, many people wanted her to design something for them too ! Laëtitia began creating new pieces, not only for herself, but for all her friends that love handmade creations too !

Her favourite theme? Animals! In the charming collections of Scalaë, you will  be able to find birds such as cockatoos, swans, parrots, peacocks . You will also find a mama whale with her baby as a beutiful handmade room mobile.

At French Blossom, we love Laëtitia’s creations that bring a touch of originality to a childrens bedroom or a babies nursery. These beautiful creations are certain to add a touch of poetry and dreaminess to any decoration.

My personal favourite? Gaspard, the peacock handmade mobile that has been made exclusively for us. Coming in pink or blue, this little bird is just stunning with its long feathery tail. We love the association of soft cream white with bright colours that will surely brighten up any room you choose to display it in!

But Gaspard is not the only exclusivity you will find on our online shop, Nino the cockatoo is also one of a kind. With its warm expression, this sleepy cockatoo is perfect to help lulling your child to sleep while adding pastel softness to the room.

If you are more of an aquatic person however, you will probably be more appealed by the superb whale mobile. Showcasing a mother whale and its baby, this mobile will look lovely in a baby nursery and their peaceful expression will surely help little babies to sleep soundly.

Love these beautiful handmade pieces? Then do not hesitate any longer.  –  Discover all these pretty creations on our website: Scalaë – French Blossom!

New Collections : Having fun with Emile et Ida!

Sweatshirt Sardines

 

Sweatshirt Cheeseburger. Today, we will focus on Emile et Ida and their wonderfully fun Spring Summer collection!

But first, a few words about the brand. Created in 2010 by two tailors’ daughters, Emile et Ida is a brand not like the others. Making clothes for school does not interest them.

Making clothes in which kids can have fun at birthday parties, during the holidays, during the weekend and more generally, during happy days! Of course, you can wear their clothes for school too! 😉

Their collections are always original, playful and full of wonders. Perfect for going out or staying in! The collections are predominantly made in Portugal with certain pieces made in other European countries !

Now, about this summer collection, it is as usual super original and fun! It’s hard for us to resist the sweater with small burgers all over it. Same goes for the little baby bottles pattern or the “I’m always hungry” t-shirt. Your little ones will look so adorable you will just want to eat them.

You can also find in this new collection some extraordinary animals such as sardines with hats or hippopotamuses with bowties and headphones. But don’t forget about the cat bags or the backpacks covered with cars to complete any cool kid’s outift!

But this season is not only about original patterns. You can also find lovely simple pieces with powdered and soft pastel colours. They are ideal for a more poetic and dreamy outfit for little girls.

You will surely find a piece that you will love in this new collection from Emile et Ida just like we did! Discover the beautiful Spring / Summer Collection of Emile et Ida  at French Blossom.com !

New In: Naïf, Natural Baby Skincare Products

Naif Complete Product Range

These days, more and more skincare products for babies flood the market so we can’t help wonder which one is really good for your baby? Which one combines efficiency, respects  your baby’s skin and also smells nice?

At French Blossom, we found one brand that matches all these criteria. Its name? Naïf. This young cosmetics brand for babies made it its mission to offer natural products that won’t hurt your little one’s delicate skin.

Naïf was created when two friends found out they were going to be fathers. They started to be concerned for the welfare of their future children and started reading label after label, realizing how difficult it is to find the perfect baby skincare products.

From here they decided to create a range of baby skincare products for which each and every name on the labels would be pronounceable and not confusing to users. And because nature is  best, they use cottonseed oil, sweet almond oil, macadamia oil and avocado oil as the main ingredients.

We like the adorable and funny packaging designs used by Naïf that offers a refreshing perspective where they see the adult world through children’s eyes. Bright colours and great drawings are one thing that makes their products stand out from the others.

We also love the delicate smell of these creams, lotions and shampoos.

Our favourite product has to be the protecting baby sunscreen because it is fairly rare to find one specially made for babies, and it is even rarer to find one made with natural ingredients! This cream is perfect to go on a walk when it is sunny outside without having to worry too much about your baby’s delicate skin!

L’Infuseur Paris: not your typical herbal tea

Complete Herbal Tea Set

Many people see herbal tea as a beverage for older people, with no real taste and that doesn’t exactly bring much pleasure. As a tea drinker myself, I tend to think the same.

Well, how wrong was I and here is the brand that made me rethink everything about herbal tea: L’Infuseur Paris. This young French brand breaks every code about herbal tea, and it does it with style and refinement.

This brand was created by Céline and fellow herbal tea lovers that helped her. Tired of this image of grand-mother, medicinal or plain beverage, they wanted to create something amazing, something beautiful, something modern that would change the image that traditionally follows herbal tea.

L’Infuseur makes you forget the negative clichés about this type of beverage and turns it into an elegant and modern drink that reconciles pleasure and benefits for your health. Made with only the best ingredients, this brand offers you high quality tea, with subtle yet original and delicious tastes.

Let’s take the Delight Infusion for instance. You will definitely be charmed by its amazing spiced scent and the ingenious blend of flowers and fruit that compose it. Looking for something simpler to drink after a copious diner? Then you should pick the Digestive Infusion. Its blend of aromatic herbs is sure to dowonders when your stomach is unsettled.

Or maybe something to make your whole body (and mind) feel better? Then let yourself be surrounded by the sweet scent of the Dé-Tox fruit-based herbal tea. Here at French Blossom, we love its amazing smell and wonderful taste that is not only good for your taste buds but also for your health and mood.

To enjoy these treats putut your kettle on and turn it off just a few seconds before the water is actually boiling. One spoon of tea should be enough to appreciate a mug of these amazing flavours. You’ll then have to let it brew for 4 to 5 minute depending on how strong you want your tea. And tadah! Now the only thing left to do is enjoying a warm cup of tea.

And we shouldn’t forget the small detail that makes the difference: the beautiful packaging in navy blue that’ll make you want to leave this herbal tea box on your kitchen counter for everyone to see!

Want to give these herbal teas a try? You can find them on our online shop right there: L’Infuseur Paris – French Blossom!

New In: My Little Cozmo

My Little Cozmo Dress Confettis and Bloomer

Today, I am going to talk about our newest arrival for designer baby clothing: My Little Cozmo. This young Spanish brand was created in 2014 by Nuria Iracheta and is based in Barcelona.

Nuria wanted to discover more about fashion and develop a universe that would focus on little ones from 1 to 24 months. Aided by her experience of working in the fashion industry for many years, she decided to create her own baby clothes collection!

Designed to fit the modern lifestyle of energetic parents and their babies, these clothes give off a minimalist feel thanks to casual patterns and unique prints that make them ideal to complete a refreshing urban look. We like the comfortable cuts and the soft, powdered colours used by the brand for its new collection. These delicate pieces are ideal to match with many styles thanks to their simplicity. Only made with the finest cotton, these garments are dyed and washed following a manufacturing process that helps create soft and comfortable clothes for babies.

This season, My Little Cozmo treats you with beautiful leggings, dresses, bloomers and tops. In white, pink or blue, your child will be ready to spend sunny days outside! I especially like the soft pink dress covered with little black sparks for a little girl or the blue Pacman tank top, matched with the grey leggings, for a little boy. And if you want something purer, why not try the beautiful white legging and combine it with a grey blouse from Poudre Organic?
