Love that Rabbit

I have loved the White Rabbit England store for a while with its mix of children's decor and gorgeous accessories but i recently saw Brit owner Victoria's New York home on Refinery 29 and fell in love. Such a wonderful eclectic mix and who doesn't love a chalkboard?!

Check out the full tour at Refinery 29, here.

Travelling with my mate Mac

I so walked around London with this beast! It worked.

DVF at Gap Kids is here!

    Right now I'm off to browse at Gap. Browse being the operative word. I will try to keep my credit   card firmly wedged into my purse!

Blogshop London

 loving me some instagram!

So there is so much going on in the Chalk house right now it's CRAZY! But i thought i must do a  post about my amazing weekend with the blogshop massive. It was so inspirational and yet head hurting at the same time. I think learning something completely new from scratch is like learning another language really. You really need to practice everyday just to get that sucker to sink right in. I met so many cool peeps including Xanthe who made an little film about our class! Now i just need to practice. It makes perfect don't you day!

Happy Birthday Kitty!

Someone special was 5 today. Preparations are in full swing for a superhero party at the weekend. 
She loved my washi tape birthday parcels. The girls got taste. What can i say?!
Her day went something like this.

Wake up, presents, breakfast, school, jewellery making, lasagne making, cake decorating, more presents, eating tea and playing with presents, playing, bath, playing, stories, bed.

Oh the joy of birthdays when you are young.

Happy Mother's Day

"As a mom, you get to experience what falling in love feels like again with each child.”
Kate Young via The Glow

 In England, today is Mother's Day. I'm still recovering from what feels like an eternal haze of sickness in this house but today i'm thankful for my three bambino's. They illuminate my life and complicate my world in equal measure and i would not be without them for the whole world.

Also i love what Karine has posted about mother's Day here. I feel exactly the same.

100 Cameras

So after reading about this project on La la Lovely I felt i wanted to share too. 100 cameras project gives cameras to 'marginalized children to document their lives through photography and to create positive change in their own communities.' Some of the photos are beautiful and some sad and if you buy a postcard, card or print, every single penny goes straight back to the child. Pretty cool huh?

These beautiful images were taken by Kiden who like many of the other photographer children has a story to tell. You can buy any of the images from as little as $8.

And if you work for a company who look to donate places or you are incredibly generous you can also offer a one time donation of $500 to adopt a camera for another child.

Awesome. This is on my to do list in life.

Little Liberty

So last week Liberty re launched a kids line instore selling designers across the board from Kidscase to Paul Smith Junior. Liberty London now stocks mini garments of perfection for those with a large wallet and a some more lovely pieces for those with a medium sized wallet.

I love this Miller dress.
