I was going to do a From The Weekend post but there are too many photos I wanted to share from this fantastic weekend that I decided to separate in 2 posts: Saturday and Sunday. The weather was so gorgeous, after a little bit of work in the morning on saturday wrapping up some clients projects (because my parents arrive soon and we are going on a road trip) we went for a little bike ride to Hayes Valley and stopped at Duboce Park for a little snack and some playground fun!
I love the cute houses around Duboce park, this one is one of my favorite since I moved to San Francisco, I always love to stop by and take some photos. The navy blue door used to be mint, they recently repainted it I think, just for us so it matches our outfits of the day haha.
I am wearing a Scotch & Soda shirt from last summer and Levi’s embroidered shorts. Lula is wearing a Levi’s scarf, Old Navy top and Zara shorts.
She loves cookies, look at her stealing a piece from inside the paper bag!
And lemonade! From the straw!
Here are a few fun props I made that were commissioned by amazing photographer Maria Del Rio for her summertime shoot in San Francisco. It is featured in the issue 10 of Minc Magazine. I love all the colors and fun styling! And the super cool graphic background, it was shot in the sunset, a colorful neighborhood near the ocean. Don’t you want to have a garage door like this? I also want those super curly hairs!
If there’s 2 summer prints I will never get tired of it’s the watermelon and the pineapple! I mean look at these super cute limited edition moccasins by Freshly Picked! Lula already has 7 pairs of mocks, is it too much if I get another pair?…I’ll be able to open a store soon!
Just one more month until Lula turns one! Where did the time go?
Her favorite activity lately is to hide under blankets and wait for me to find her. She waves now and applauds. She dances every time music is on. She can say mama and our cat’s name. The other day I was calling Maggie who was in the backyard, Lula repeated it, so funny. And now she repeats every time. She is such a happy baby! Since we turned her stroller seat to face the other way she waves and smiles at people and I always see people smiling back and say “nice shoes” and “aw, look at that headband”… I love her so much and I love being her mama. This is getting more and more fun every day!
Honest Company diapers and Freshly Picked moccasins is the best combo! I am obsessed with both. I started buying the diapers from Honest about a month ago and I loooove them. How cute are they? I mean look at those prints, so much more fun than the plain white and cuter than the cartoon character ones! Lula loves them too!
We met with a few friends at Yuba River on saturday. It is about 2 hours and half north east from San Francisco near a super cute little town called Nevada City. We hiked for 20min to arrive to this magical place. We spent most of the day in the water, babies in floaters, we had a nice picnic and watched the babies play together. It was super fun and I can’t wait to go back. I wish I took more photos to show you the beautiful scenery. Thank you so much to our friends Anastassia and Dan who we met a few weeks ago in Mexico for inviting us to their annual trip to Yuba river’s secret spot.
Lula is wearing a Bobo Chose hat, Gap swimsuit and Zara sandals.
Do you know Jujubunnyshop? They have the cutest clothes for kids! Last week I discovered those fantastic dolphins shades on their accessories page. I couldn’t resist. They are not baby sunglasses, so Lula will have to wait another year probably to wear them but I just couldn’t wait for the photo and she was so happy when she put them on, I was actually very surprised she didn’t take them off.
I was so excited last month when agency Alma DDB in Miami reached me to work on a new McDonalds campaign for the Happy Meal. I mean who doesn’t know McDonalds? Funny thing actually, I’ve been trying to tell my american friends who I was working for during the project and they couldn’t understand the name, I had to say it like ten times and then spell it…I’ve been living in the US for almost 6 years now and there are still some words I can’t pronounce like squirrel or water! “Can I have a bottle of water please?” “I’m sorry what?” you should have seen me at the supermarket the other day…embarrassing.
So, I have had a lot of fun working this project. I hope you like it. I don’t really eat meat anymore but making those miniature burgers made me really hungry for one.
More from this campaign coming soon!

1/ Jujubunnyshop fabulous dolphins sunglasses, I am in love with these and the entire shop actually. I just ordered them for Lula even if they will probably be too big for now.
3/ Freshly Picked Glacier moccasins, just another color to add in her closet!
4/ Shoppe La Lune mermaid necklace, how cute?! I couldn’t resist getting the soft blue and pink for Lula for when she is a little bigger too.
5/ Swatch candy watch!
I love wearing necklaces. I feel naked without. I have so many but never enough of them! I especially love pompoms ones. The thing is, Lula loves them a lot too, especially in her mouth! I don’t want to stop wearing them but I also want them to be safe for Lula to chew one.
I am so glad Mama & Little reached me on instagram to show me her fun line of teething jewelry for the hip mama and her little. I love that they don’t look like obvious teething jewelry and the colors are really pretty. The Teresa necklace is my favorite. I love the modern and geometric look of the hexagon beads. Both the mermaid and lavender colors combo are very nice and easy to pair with any outfit, from denim to any color shirt or cute dress.
