bitsy favorite for the itsy…NOCH MINI!

Bitsy is pumped to introduce you to a brand that enthusiastically follows an organic way of life. Meet Noch Mini. The name NOCH signifies “the basic and majority elements of everything living & organic – N(nitrogen), O (oxygen), C (carbon), H (hydrogen)”. Bitsy has shared organic brands with you in the past – we are definitely passionate about what materials we put on our sweet babies’ + childrens’ skin. Noch Mini uses only certified organic materials and low-impact dyes. We applaud and thank them for their thoughtfulness!

It can be difficult to find adorable options that are also 100% healthy for our pipsqueaks’ little bods. Well, not only does Noch stand by its organic promise, but the designer, Jina Jang, does not skimp on style + trend when creating her collections. Without further adieu, let us introduce you to NOCH MINI…

*Also a quick follow-up on the Twig Creative Wooden Toy Camera that was featured in the orginal “in my Easter bonnet” post last Monday 3.24.14. The Easter Bunny may be adding it to Lucy’s basket (and since it arrived last week) it is SUCH an adorable toy! It also doubles as an accessory! There will be lots of great “Say Cheese!” moments with this one for sure…

sing (+ dress!) yourself happy…Brooklyn style

in-spi-ra-tion – noun.

the process of being mentally stimulated to do

or feel something, especially to do 

something creative

 I am always looking for inspiration – whether it be in someone else’s style, a new funky color, food or music I try to notice what makes me tick and note it away for safe keeping. You never know when you’re going to need a little inspiration. Lucky for me, we took Lucy to see THE POP UPS in concert on Monday. After the show my insides were bursting with inspiration! I would definitely consider us a musical family – my husband plays guitar among other instruments and we all just really appreciate what music does to us and how it inspires mostly everyone around us. That being said, after the show we were all feeling very tickled with inspiration!

For those of you that don’t know The Pop Ups, you have to check them out! They are a Brooklyn-based, Grammy nominated(!) musical duo that creates funky children’s songs that (believe me) even parents want to jam out to. They instantly grab their audiences attention by wildly performing their music using cardboard props, hand-painted sets and a colorful cast of original puppets. At our show they even threw out big + colorful beach balls in the audience so kids could ping them to one another. Just really fun stuff. Check them out here – THE POP UPS – to learn more and see when they may be rocking a house near you soon!

Here they are getting down to business…

The Pop Ups in Action

Since I had so much inspiration in my bones, I also hit up some fun Brooklyn-based children’s designers + web shops to see what the hipsters are up to. Check out these adorable finds (there is SO much more to share…stay tuned!)…
