Gunner & Lux Magic

These necklaces are pure magic. I think that covers this. No, wait, we love knowing that the vendors we support and then in turn would like you to support are artists and that they are interesting and cool. And Gunner & Lux is no exception, they are making a product that is magical and we want in. 
I gave my daughter the "Azul Unicorn" and she has not taken it off since and is in love with her. She has kept her busy through errands, dinner prep, and a doctor appointment. If that isn't magic - I don't know what is.

This is epic news! Little Bean is joining the store front world again! We have partnered with MADRE a new shop opening in March 2015. We can not wait we are SO EXCITED we can't stand it!
The three girls above, Kerri, Mia, and Louise - who are so talented and chic are the masterminds behind MADRE. They blow it out of the water with style and we want to live in each of their houses. And we don't take Goldilocks behavior lightly...

They have scoured the markets and found the best of the best and are bringing it to their coral door in a bungalow on West Lovers Lane. Right next to a certain famous lavender door that also kills it in the cool factor. Also nearby is Belair Home with a mix of stylish fashion and home design, delicious JK Chocolates, and CANARY down the block.West Lovers will be the place to be! 


In every little room at Madre, they will have a fabulous mix of gift items, mom essentials, headboards and furniture to make your room, children's rooms and design ideas a dream come true. MADRE will also offer monogramming for all your custom gifts, linens and school needs. Along with all of your Little Bean favorites - Siaomimi Play, Vilac, Magic Forest, Peas and Queues, and Hazel Village. So stop in (and bring the little ones) to Design, Shop and Play.

Please stay tuned for more updates as they unfold and go ahead and follow MADRE on instagram for some sneak peeks!

Peas Do Us a Favor Santa

Peas and Queues is such a cool brand, so cool in fact that we want Santa to ask them/beg them to do us a favor and make mother/daughter matching outfits. Because we want to wear this in tandem. Thank you in advance and also sorry in advance to the Little Bean for all the future embarrassing matching moments.

Fujifilm Fun

These mini polaroids are from pictures my daughter took with our Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 and the ones she is in she "art directed". I am pretty impressed with her composition but she has big dreams for herself. She says that when she grows up she wants to be "a painter girl in Paris" and I believe whatever she wants to be should be followed by me and her whole heartedly.
Remember when we were younger and we would take our disposable cameras to CVS for the one hour developing and it was like a torturous 60 minutes while you thought about all of the awesome potential your roll of film had?? Our kids won't even know about that and when we try to explain it they will think we are weird and old.

Time for Holiday Tea

This French tea set is something we would have loved to have had our grubby little princess, dress up, tea loving hands on as a kid. It is metal tin which gives it the air of kind of being legit which as a kid always takes things to the next level and it comes in it's own beautiful little hand case. You know just in case you want to take the party outside when it starts to warm up for my childhood favorites of tea, mud pie, and onion grass.

Need a boy gift?

A bright orange wooden dump truck and a spanking yellow wooden excavator are for-sure hits with little boys. They operate, they roll, and they are tough! From the renowned Italian toy company Sevi, these toys are meant to be loved and to last.
