Too Busy Sleeping | The New Baby Gift Guide

Too Busy Sleeping / The Beautiful Lens New Baby Gift Guide

My gorgeous friend Zanni Louise has just released her very first picture book. How awesome is that?! Too Busy Sleeping tells the story of ‘big sister’ Eleanor and her very sleepy newborn brother Reuben. It’s a universal new sibling tale, brought to life with the whimsical touch of illustrator Anna Pignataro.

And in celebration of this wonderful occasion I thought I would put together a little New Baby gift guide sourced from some of my favourite boutique stores here in Bangalow, Australia. Because – Hello Babies! You are the cutest stylistas of all :)

Are you waiting on the arrival of any beautiful bundles – your own, or family, or friends? One of my dearest friends and her husband (who are based in the U.S.) have just announced that their surrogate is pregnant – and we are sooo excited! It’s a been a very hard and long journey towards parenthood for them and the news of their first bub is so fantastic. Let’s talk cute babies in the comments below! Love, Amber XO
