Olive Us

Olive Us is a charming web series following the lives of six children, Ralph, Maude, Olive, Oscar, Betty, and Flora June. The family lives in the countryside of France and these short films capture the nostalgia of family and adventure through a child's eyes. One of my favorites is Betty in Paris - I love how the film shows the grandness of Paris from the gaze of a little girl dressed in red. I always smile when I see a new episode alert in my inbox - Olive Us always delivers a short escape into the child's land of adventure. For the Olive Us website, click here. To see the new season, click here. The mother of these six children, Gabrielle Blair, also writes a blog, www.DesignMom.com (I don't know how she does it all - I have two kids and always feel slightly behind).

Bonpoint? Nope. Its Zara...

There is no doubt Zara is one of my favorite stores - the clothes are well made, the shoes are always great, there are great handbag and shoe options in leather for excellent prices, and my Zara purchases never seem to go out of style. This fall, Zara has done it again. The children's line is precious with a bit of edge and the baby line is awesome - very French with beautiful little prints, adorable cardigans, leather mary jane shoes (!!)- looking quite Bonpoint for a fraction of the price (and did I mention that the boys clothes are cute too?? You can visit the Zara website or my pinterest page where I have been pinning away!! Images via Zara Website
