July in France

july_france_2

Enjoying the pool and eating a lot of popsicles. I can never eat mine entirely or I have to hide because as soon as she sees me she says “glace, glace!” and I have to give it to her…

july_france_1

Catching up with my favorite french magazines by the pool and discovering a lovely article featuring my paper bunny trophy in As you like magazine.

july_france_3

Shopping for our baby girl arriving in 3 and half months! Spending a lot of time at Les Puces du Canal de Lyon and finally found the rotin crib I dreamed about! And a matching bed for Lula’s dolls, a few pillows and blankets, baby shoes…

july_france_4

Taking summer baths windows opened in my parents nice and bright bathroom with her new friend.

july_francw_6

Going to the carousel at least once a week if not every day!

july_france_5

Going for walks, making friends at the playground and hanging out with her bff (the dog!).

It feels so nice to spend the summer in France, having the time to relax and go to my favorite places. I love to see Lula getting to know the family better, calling them by little nicknames. We are all going to Greece next week for 10 days and I am so excited about it. My parents rented a little fisherman’s house on the Paros island.

I hope you are having a wonderful summer! Follow our adventures on Instagram!

22 weeks Maternity Style + Youh Youh Les Indiens

22weeks_overall_3

I am living in those Zara denim dungarees this summer! So comfortable, easy to wear and plenty of room for my belly to grow. How beautiful are these earrings and bracelet I received from Youh Youh Les Indiens?! The perfect accessories for my vacations! Thank you Youh Youh! You probably know by now my passion for basket bags, I was looking for a large (big enough for my wallet, sunglasses, diapers, wipes, snacks…) and simple one with long handles to take everywhere with me this summer, found the perfect one at the flea market in Lyon for super cheap (7euros!!) couldn’t be happier. My shirt is from Denim & Supply Ralph Lauren (on sale).

Happy Summer!

strawberry_pool

Lula and I just arrived at my parents in Lyon, France. It feels so good to be home with the family and have a real summer (not a fan of San Francisco summer). Not just 2 weeks but a month and half this time and this is what I plan on doing most days! Also someone is turning 2 in a month so I am gathering some ideas for her little celebration only with the family this time!

I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!

Happy Monday!

girl_pineapple_pink

I hope you had a lovely weekend!

I spent most of mine working, wrapping up some clients projects and orders from the shop before Lula and I leave for a month and half (maybe two) tomorrow! London, France and Greece… I seriously can’t wait!

I was so envious of Lula’s pineapple sunglasses from Gap kids but couldn’t find them in my size so I had to make myself paper ones! And this is what I plan on doing for these next 2 months… a much needed vacation and I am so happy Lula will get to spend a lot of time with our family and friends.

Our Weekend In Arizona!

smile_pool

Spent mostly at our hotel’s pool and in restaurants because of the heat! I am not used to stay at a hotel when I go on vacation, I like to discover places, walk around, go to the museums, shopping … but seriously, it was way too hot to do anything else other than be in the pool. On saturday, after brunch I tried to go for a little walk by myself in the Old Town of Scottsdale for the beautiful Navajo jewelries, but after 20 minutes I couldn’t stand the heat anymore so I just went back to the hotel and join my girl for a nap. On Sunday we went to visit the Franck Lloyd right foundation but it was only a guided tour and the lady advised us to come back on Monday, early in the morning so it would be nicer/safer for Lula, me and the baby. Unfortunately Monday (today), I was at my desk working. So it was not the most productive weekend but a very colorful and relaxing one. And Lula’s happy place is the pool anyway!

Happy Friday + Big News!

baby_number2

Happy Friday friends! I am so excited to share with you today that Lula is going to be a big sister in November! I am now 18 weeks pregnant and we discovered yesterday at the screening that it’s a girl! When I showed this ultrasound image to Lula at 13 weeks, this first thing she did was to go grab a pen thinking it was a coloring pictures. Now she sees my belly and says “bébé”, give her a kiss and then pull down my shirt and say “all done!”.

Just like when I was expecting Lula, the first trimester was difficult, I was super tired, sleeping most of the time and not inspired at all. Now that I am in the second trimester I have so much more energy and so many ideas for new products in my head! I wish I had more time to make them all happen. I am so impatient! But you’ve probably seen the Safari Collection already that I worked on this month and thank you so much for the orders I received.

Have a wonderful weekend, we’ll be spending ours in Arizona for some much needed relaxing time by the pool! Warm weather here we come!

22 months!

lula_22months_5

I can’t believe my Lula turns 2 in just a couple months! She is the sweetest and funniest little girl. I love her dance moves, every day when she comes home from daycare she asks for music and our living room turns into a dance floor! She loves pretending she is on the phone and laughing like she’s having a very funny conversation. Sometimes she even put her hand (imaginary phone) to our cat ear to share the conversation. She also, just like us, put the phone between her shoulder and ear when she has her hands full. I love that every morning when she wakes up she comes in our bedroom, jump in our bed and give me a big kiss on the mouth. I like a little less that now she has a toddler bed and knows how to open the door, she wake us up at 5.30 or 6 which used to be 7.30 or 8. Also after giving me a kiss she comes around the bed to my bedside table, give me my glasses and put my phone in my hand and says “Tro Tro!” (it’s a french cartoon), so funny! And even if we don’t like to let her watch too many cartoons, it gives us a extra 30 minutes to sleep! I love that she like books and ask for them all the time, reading before bedtime is a precious moment.

Her favorite words (the ones she uses the most, a mix of english, french and spanish words) are “gateau” (cookie), “tétine” (pacifier), “all done!”, “agua”, “this!”, “dessine” (draw), “ballon” (balloon) and “bubble”, “stop it maman”, “piscine” and “tut-tut” when she sees a truck, bus…She knows more and more words every weeks, every days. She repeats a lot what we say and it is so funny to hear songs and other things she learned at school. Last week she kept singing ” gulp, gulp, oh nooo!” during diner time, with my husband we had no idea what it meant, so we recorded her and showed the video the her teacher who told us that was a song called Slippery fish, they sing it together with the other kids. Because English isn’t our first language and we went to school in France, this is all new to us. We have so many songs, stories to learn. She also loves singing the A, B, C; Freres Jacques and other french “comptines”…

Do your kids have favorite songs? books? cartoons?
