November is here and Paper Tastebuds is making a comeback! Slow and steady but I’ll be returning to the blog for more fun content this month after a couple months of being in a new-baby-bubble. I’m kicking it off with some kid stuff, which is sure to make an appearance more often now that its on my radar.

These are some funny and styling hair clips from Very French Gangsters, who specialize in eyewear for kids along with this stand-out accessory.

This nursery, as featured in Australian Elle, is a feast for the eyes! It’s a bit intense but I still found myself drawn to all the color and shapes and treasures. It is the playful home of kids Captain and Sugar (yes, real names), children of stylist/designer Sheree of CaptainAndTheGypsyKid.
