Calling all Mini Gods and Goddesses! It’s time to get your style statement going on with Sassy Mama’s new monthly kids fashion column, brought to you by our very own maven of chic – Instant Goddess! So without further ado…
BaoBae [bao-bey] – adj. Precious, priceless n. a treasure, a baby.
Now we’ve got the education bit out of the way, let’s get onto what I’m good at… SHOPPING! A relative newcomer to the Hong Kong scene, BaoBae is all about “effortless gifting for babies and mamas!” Now, if you are a regular visitor to my Instant Goddess column, you’ll know that I love anything that’s effortless and stylish. So I jumped at the opportunity to check out BaoBae’s gifting service and was delighted with what I found.
Packed with the best boutique retailers and fabulous local designers, this really is your one-stop shop if you’re heading to a baby shower, looking for a unique gift for a little one’s birthday or just want to treat oft forgotten mama.
You can either make up your own gift hamper, or get BaoBae’s website to automatically make one for you – just input whether you’re buying for a boy, girl, or want to play it safe with unisex picks; add in the age, and whether you’d like to include a gift for mama (hint: mama will always appreciate a gift!), or even something small for a sibling so they don’t feel left out… aww!
I should also add that I was pleasantly surprised by the range of prices and products on the site. After trekking around HK shops on so many occasions and often ending up feeling disappointed with the limited choice and extortionate prices – it’s refreshing to have an easy and (on the whole), reasonably priced shopping option at your fingertips.
On the clothing front here’s a taste of what awaits:
Oooh, and I am loving these Liberty print bikinis… a MUST for little pool posers everywhere (can we have mama sizes too please!?):
Liberty bikinis $300
And we’re not forgetting the boys here, who also get to choose from some very cool stuff:
And for little bubbas:
And it’s not just clothes – there are toys; baby essentials such as bibs and swaddle blankets; treats for mama, including The9thMuse jewellery gift vouchers; travel kits and tote bags. And best of all, your gift selections come wonderfully packed in a reusable gift hamper.
BaoBae also ship internationally, so you can treat friends and family overseas. Delivery in Hong Kong takes 1-3 days and you can check out their website for more gift options here.
So not just one, but two new brands this week, you lucky people! Cool children’s label Olive&Moss has been around in the UK since 2007, but has just recently popped up on the Mini Goddess radar right here in Hong Kong, and is offering Sassy Mama readers a lovely 15% discount until 31 October! To find out how to claim your discount, read on, mama!
Established by textile designer Nina Govan, you can really see her experience coming to the fore with the high quality fabrics used, the great design and the brightest of palettes featuring unique prints, characters, stripes, florals, appliqués, trims, buttons and badges.
And we love the characters that Nina has created, really bringing these clothes to life and giving them character! With designs featuring Perry the Panda, Michael the Monkey, Betty the Bunny, Otto the Owl, Boris the Border and Leo the Lion these clothes will become your child’s best friends!
The proof in the pudding; I had to literally wrestle the oh-so-soft and snuggly ‘Number 3’ t-shirt off my little girl, who has recently turned into quite the opinionated mini fashionista-about-town… I wonder why?!
Olive&Moss stock clothes suitable for Mini Gods and Goddesses from newborn to 4 years, so get super-stylin’! To claim your fab 15% discount simply enter the code SASSYMAMA at checkout. The discount code is valid until 31st October 2013 and is valid for all Olive and Moss products except Dwinguler and 3sprouts.
That’s it for this week so until next time, Mini Goddesses and Gods everywhere… remember to keep your fastest finger on the family fashion pulse (or ask your mama!) XX
