ALONDRA BABY COLLECTION

I had the opportunity to visit the O concept store and have a look at the amazing Alondra Baby collection just launched for the first time in the UAE. For those of you who don’t know…Alondra is a Spanish brand, which started in the middle of the 80’s by manufacturing baby accessories. but after a successful decade, the company shifted its focus to the production of baby furniture and bedding.

The brand ALONDRA in other parts of the world have become an internationally recognized leader in the field of nursery equipment over the last few years.The success is definitely based on several factors: innovation, striking designs, high quality and impeccable finishes.

Present in more than 50 countries, and offering a vast variety of products Alondra has managed to earn the trust of more than 800 partners worldwide.With keeping the comfort in mind, Alondra Baby collection surely strives with amazing looking products and the latest design trends into the baby rooms.

Here’s a little glimpse of the Alondra collection.

ALONDRA COT COLLECTION

Each Alondra cot collection is designed elegantly  and beautifully,transforming and serving a different purpose according to a child’s age.

Alondra Kurve Cot

Such an elegant design

The Kurve turns from a cot to a handy toddler bed, to a desk.With contemporary cool style, this design adds a simple yet an elegant style to the nursery with its stunning good looks in bold white and warm oak tones, rounded corners and polished chrome steel feet.

That’s some serious transformation from a single piece of nursery furniture!

Alondra Maths Cot

It’s All About Adding Colors To The Nursery

These cots are ideal for limited spaces. You can combine them with a bath – changing unit, which will provide you with additional storage options.

This stylish baby cot converts into a toddler bed with by simply replacing one of the side panels with the safety guard included. Its contemporary and iconic design comprises a high gloss finish, premium quality materials and available is in various colours.

Alondra Joy Cot

From Baby to Kid to Junior Bed

This cot is ideal for trendy parents who look for design, safety and quality in the same product. Once the baby outgrows the cot, it can be assembled as a small bed, which lengthens its useful life before the child sleeps in a junior bed. Mattress, textiles and decoration items not included though but this is one ideal piece of furniture that parents would seek for.

Not only this Alondra Baby collection has a variety of other good-looking products to offer like bath changers, accessories, decor and bags textiles and Mattresses as well.

This brand has surely become my favorite with its stylish and simple yet elegant designs too sad that my daughter has already passed her toddler stage and I have no plans for any more kids

Winter Collection

Winter Collection

Winter Collection

As winter is approaching it’s time to cuddle up the kids in their winter wear.Princess Z is not fond of jackets/or coats.So this year I thought of buying her warm clothes that make her feel comfortable and she doesn’t have to cover herself with layers.Whether your buying for your boys/girls…listed below are my Top 4 shops I highly recommend to visit and buy winter clothes from:

1.MARKS & SPENCER-If your looking for bright colors and lots of bling this winter than Marks & Spencer is a must visit.Having a lovely and a massive variety of winter collection for both boy and girls it was hard to go limited.(liked mostly everything they had ). The clothes are a bit pricey but they will surely last till next season.Here are a few items I picked and bought for princess Z.(She was happy to model in them too 🙂 )

P.S They have a great collection of winter sets for girls(long sweaters with stockings)

Loved the color so bought this set for Princess Z

THE CHILDREN’S PLACE-If your looking for something more comfortable like track suits for your kids to keep them warm this winter than this is the place.It was hard to find something that fitted Princess Z perfectly here (Being taller than her age group and a bit skinny). The clothes were either lose or either short.But nevertheless they have a great variety of winter clothing specially track suits.Sizes ranging from 2T-7T.

These are a few items I got for Princess Z

MOTHER CARE-Honestly I prefer buying from mother care during sale time as you get to save a lot.But Every branch according to me doesn’t have the same collection.They have a lot to offer from warm pajamas suits to jackets,sweaters,pullover and much more.This is one stop shop for all your winter needs.

F&F- There are only a few outlets of F&F here in Dubai.They have great collection of jackets,sweaters,stockings as well a great variety of Christmas jumpers.I just bought a Christmas jumper from here for Princess Z this time as the things I liked didn’t have her size.P.S The sizes here sell out fast.
