the glitter guide
When you have a baby there is off course no need to be restricted to the nursery. From time to time you will want to take your baby out for a nice stroll if only to check that indeed there are still other grown-ups inhabiting this planet.
We all now that if you’re out on the town you need a trendy ride to cruise around with. Not only does it need to look good, a stroller also needs to be practical. My sister told me that she never knew how many pavement obstructions there were until she became a mummy. And let’s not forget that the last thing you want to do in an underground parking is struggle with an unyielding stroller.
So let me introduce you to my favorite strollers that not only look good but scored high on my test drive (although I have to confess I never made it out of the showroom).
1. Bugaboo Cameleon // 2. Joolz day // 3. Stokke Xplory // 4. Binque daily
So is one of these strollers your babies ride? And more importantly do you recommend it to other mummies? Let me know!
One of the things you be doing multiple times a day as a new parent (as we will soon experience) is diaper changing. So, apart from your crib, the most essential piece of furniture in the nursery is a changing table. Off course you can opt for just putting a changing pad onto an existing chests of drawers but there are also some wonderful designed changing tables out there.
My selection contains the more traditional changing table set up, one that is perfect for small spaces and a very versatile changing trunk. So which one is perfect for your baby’s nursery?
1. Kili changing table from Sebra // 2. Nifty change table from Ubabub // 3. Nathi from ByBo Design// 4. Changing trunk from Kalon Studios

Ok, so maybe wallpaper isn’t necessarily a nursery essential but I really need to decide on this so I can set the color scheme for the rest of the decoration. Although looking at the four wallpaper designs that made the shortlist, I do seem a reoccurring tint. And I guess it won’t be hard for you to guess what we’re having 😉
Me and my husband don’t really want a kids only wallpaper since we think we might grow bored quite quickly with a more illustrative wallpaper. So the selection is more graphic and abstract. Please help a stressed mummy-to-be make up her mind and let me know which one is your favorite!
1. Harlequin from Ferm Living // 2. Ibiza from Eijjfinger // 3. Squarestripe from Roomblush// 4. Charm from Eijffinger

So if you read this post then you now we have a little wonder under way. This is my first pregnancy and apart from the stuffy noses and tiredness I’m loving it. There is no way to describe the bliss I experience when I feel our baby kicking…
Apart from receiving a little miracle there is another great bonus to having a baby. Doing up a nursery! There is so many great baby furniture and decoration out there that it’s hard to choose. And I’m sure I’m not the only mother feeling this way. That’s why I decided to make some nursery wishlists summing up some of the best baby stuff out there.
First up is cribs. I have to admit, this is a tough cookie to crack. Apart from looking smart it’s off course essential that your baby loves his/hers little bed because he/her will be spending most of his/hers time in there. I’m particularly in favor of cribs that can be converted to junior beds, that way if you spend a bit more money on a great designed baby cot, at least you know it’s going to last a while 😉
So here’s my selection. We pretty much made our mind up on which one we’re buying but I would love to hear your opinion!
1. Stokke Sleepi Mini // 2. Leander bed // 3. Sebra crib // 4. Oeuf Sparrow crib
