Moozle Teepee SALE !!

I don’t want to cause a major stampede or anything but…I’ve just discounted a really nice teepee I forgot I had! If you are an avid Moozle follower you will know that it’s very rare to see a Moozle teepee tent in a sale. This is because our overheads and make prices remain pretty constant (exchange rates however do NOT and are driving us crazy right now!), we manufacture on a small scale here in Amsterdam, with a great team, quality materials and a true heart (we don’t use unethical labour, we don’t import from China, we don’t pollute, waste or avoid our taxes!!).

The other BIG reason we don’t discount our products is because that would be unfair to all of our lovely customers who have bought from us in the past, we value your choice, your investment and your style!

So, now you know.

Originally €205 and NOW €160 !! (this is a one-off design, one-of-a-kind, only one ever made with this appliqué)

If you want to grab it whilst you can head on over to my Etsy shop here.

Last week we went to the beautiful Dutch Tulip gardens, the world famous Keukenhof.

Only open for a few weeks each year, with months and months of planning and planting before hand, it’s no wonder that thousands of people flock from all over the world to visit. I think the photos speak for themselves, but really the place needs to be experienced first hand – the colour around every corner makes your soul lift up and do a little happy dance.

A top day out for sure!

*This years theme was Van Gogh.

Hello readers, thanks for stopping by. I took these photos earlier this week at the beautiful light filled apartment of photogarpher Barbara Iweins. I was so excited to be able to shoot the new Moozle stripe teepee in such a stylish setting… that brick wall sets the stripes off perfectly don’t you think?

The apartment in Amsterdam, near the Vondel park is actually for sale here, and if you’d like to see even more go here.

Spring is in the air here in Amsterdam so it’s high time I started taking pictures again now the dark days are behind us, for a while at least (scared to speak too soon!). I spent a lovely day this week at the residence of accessory and home wares label SCENERY. They have such a fun and colourful home – more of that to show you soon, but for now, here’s a peak into the lovely room of the SCENERY kids.

The idea behind these photos was to create an editorial style image incorporating some of the lovely designers and brands I have connected with recently on Instagram, all Dutch or French made products and many of the items made right here in Amsterdam.

Below is a little round-up, click the links to go to the product page or webshop for each item. All products are hand selected and approved by myself for quality, relevance and absolute gorgeousness!

We did an impromptu mini shoot on the way home from school today just because our outfits with our new Mon Petit Zoreol bead necklaces were a good excuse to use the backdrop of fresh new graffiti I spotted the other day! Well, when I say ‘we’ (Dexie is in the cargo bike just out of shot) I had to bribe Miss Dolly (it is a bit chilly and obviously we needed to take our coats off!) into doing the pics, I was only allowed to take pics of her if she could take some of me AND apparently the cost of a 6 minish mini shoot with Miss Doll-face is 2 packets of Frozen stickers 🙂 Done deal.

Bead necklaces available here – thanks Mon Petit Zoreol, we LOVE them x

Oh. My. Goodness. The kids and I had such a great time yesterday afternoon with photographer Maud Fontein at her studio in De Pijp. We shot a new Moozle teepee design that called for something special… and it certainly all came together 🙂

I am so excited to share the results with you but for now here’s a few pics I took on my i-phone whilest we were getting the balloons for the shoot and then on our way home.

We cycled across the Amstel with the balloons trailing behind and the sun streaming though them – I wish I had a photo of that!

We had so much fun we couldn’t sleep last night, way too much visual stimulation 🙂

It was great to work with Maud, I highly reccommend her if you are looking to do a kids/family shoot and hope we get to do lots of more work together in the future.

Keep an eye on the Moozle Facebook page for exciting Moozle news!

Hello there! If you are a Moozle Facebook fan then you will have already seen a couple of previews from Monday’s fun photo shoot with SCENERY girls Beth and Maude and their lovely wares. The SCENERY acessories perfectly compliment the amazing graffiti back drop with the bright pops of neon colour and striking geometric patchworks.

Photo credit to… me! I do love to get behind the lense and really enjoyed seeing the shoot come together just as I hoped it would, the kids do their own thing so I just have to capture it – there really is no directing these characters, it’s like herding kittens 🙂 We managed to squeeze the entire setting-up/shoot/styling into just over 1 hour between school and after schools clubs – we know how to keep busy!!

Good news for SCENERY fans… they have a SALE on all of their graffitti range… get on over there – QUICK, look sharp!

This new teepee tent design is up on the site now and I like how the photos came out (on such a dull rainy Amsterdam day too) and Nora’s cute room was the perfect location, thanks Nora!  All those super props to use, and so in theme. You can see the rest of the photos here Flickr.

Order your tent here Moozle.

Fort – ish!

Some kids in my neighbourhood have built this fort… it’s a really nice neighbourhood, educated, quite well-to-do affluent families… but this fort…well, it’s crazy! I really don’t think British health and safety would approve, but, hey, this is Amsterdam!

I saw this home made lampshade on a lamp post further up the same road – it takes pimping your pavement to a whole other level – I love it!
