A few weeks late because I am now 30 weeks! We got back from France a couple weeks ago and I have been catching up with work! A recent collaboration with PlayStation and some exciting new products coming soon in the shop. So I haven’t had much time to update the blog recently, but I am back!

I miss Greece already, but the weather has been really nice in San Francisco since we got back, I can still wear dresses and I hope I will be able to until baby arrive, it is so much more comfortable! September and October are my favorite months here, they can be really warm, much warmer than July and August when it’s usually foggy and cold.

My Pregnancy Style – 25 weeks in Greece!

25weeks1_1

Dress – Sandro, Sunglasses – Illesteva, Sandals – Old Navy, Basket – Vintage

I fell in love with this dress as soon as I saw it in the shop and had to get it even if I know I won’t be able to wear it for long with my fast growing belly (good thing I got it on sale)! Sadly our family vacations in Greece came to an end. It was such a fun and relaxing trip. The island of Paros where we spent the week is super charming, we loved walking around, eating Greek food, shopping for souvenirs and taking the boat to beautiful beaches. I’ll post more photos next week.

We are back at my parent’s in Lyon (France) and celebrated Lula’s second birthday today with my family. I can’t believe she is 2, just like that. I remember every details of the day of her birth like it was yesterday. And I can’t believe she is going to be a big sister in 3 months!!! I am now looking at the date on my computer and read August 22nd, my due date is November 22!

Enjoy your weekend!

PS: Lula and I are featured on Babiekins Magazine today, I answered a few questions about art and motherhood, check out the interview here!

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…

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

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!

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.

Mother Daughter Style #30 + Quinny South Beach Collection

lula_stroller_3(Photographed by Sabrina Bot)

I am so excited to share with you about Quinny’s new special edition South Beach Collection. This gorgeous Zapp Xtra stroller was offered to us last week and I couldn’t wait to go on a stroll with Lula. How cool is this pink pastel color with accents of neon?! It fits perfectly with our colorful world and just in time for summer. As soon as we unfolded the stroller, Lula jumped in it ready to go! And trust me, it hasn’t been easy having her stay in her stroller lately.

I just realized while looking at the photos that we were so in a rush to get outside with it that I forgot to remove some of the white protection pads near the wheels haha!

Thank you again Quinny for this super cool stroller, it will sure come with us on many adventures this summer!

And if you too are not afraid of colors and want to brighten up your day with a fun stroller, you can buy it at Albee Baby (on sale now). It also exists in a soft blue with neon green accents!

Lula’s First Music Festival

bottlerock_1lowres

This month in San Francisco has been very grey and cold, so yesterday we went in Napa Valley to find the sun and dance at the Bottle Rock music festival. As you can tell, Lula loved it! She danced all day, clapped her hands at the end of songs and asked for “more, more, encore”. She ran around, said hi to strangers, played with balloons, skipped her nap, ate a Nutella crepe and a quesadilla, had a coconut water and a flamingo balloon made for her, played hula hoop, caught bubbles… and fell asleep in the car on the way back, a good good day!

Welcome Into Lula’s Dreamland!

lula_dreamland_5

Hello!

If you’ve been following me for a while, you probably know what Lula’s nursery used to look like. A bunnyland with a mint, blush and grey color palette.

Lula is now almost 2 years old (21 months to be exact, already?!!) and I’ve been rearranging her bedroom for the last couple months. She is a big girl now who loves colors, animals, playing with her dolls, dancing, cooking, hiding in her teepee, reading stories… A girl full of energy and adventurous. She started climbing her bed a couple months ago, until she fell out one morning! I never thought this moment would arrive so fast! Most of my friends kids are still in their crib until 2 and half-3 years old. So we first removed the front panel from her crib while I was looking for a toddler bed.

I have been following the work of Kalon Studios for some time and I was obsessed with their beautiful caravan divan. So Lula climbing out her crib actually gave me a good excuse to finally get it! I think it looks perfect in her new room. I love the modern lines, especially the legs and the pink color on natural wood. And I like that when she’ll grow out of it, we’ll still be able to use it as a little divan to seat on with pretty cushions on the sides.

I started bringing more colors in her room by adding other paper animals than the bunny with bright colored backdrop. In the frame on top of the raccoon is the original paper art I made for her baby announcement and the ice cream cone is a prop I made from her first birthday. I got the poms garland in Mexico and the God’s eye too.

lula_dreamland_22

I wanted her room now to feel more personal and unique, inspiring for her, filled with colors and decorations that are not baby decoration that you’ve seen a million times already. Objects we brought back from our trips in Morocco and Mexico. My husband is half Moroccan. Paper decorations I made, photos, gifts… from her first almost 2 years.

It is still a work in progress but like every room in our home, I like to move things around all the time!

lula_dreamland_6

Every time she sees a basket or paper bag, box… she has to put it on her head! This cute mini basket is one of the few I bought in the souk in Marrakesh!

lula_dreamland_7

Oh hello! Her outfit is from Pink Chicken.

The name of this post and Lula’s bedroom is inspired by her favorite french book called Bienvenue a Dreamland. This is a super fresh and colorful book representing scenes at the beach, at the theme park, in tree houses with animals and cute little characters like a grandmother skateboarding, a flying pig… so many fun and magical details to look for.

lula_dreamland_11

Lula loves her new bed, you should have seen her face when she saw it for the first time in her room. In two seconds she was jumping on it with a huge smile. She is still adjusting to it at night. We found her a few times sleeping on the floor with her bunnies against the door, because she wanted to get out but didn’t know how to open the door…until this morning!

During the day she likes to put her dolls and bunnies to sleep in her bed. She puts them under the blanket, give them a kiss and say “dodo”. I love her so much!

lula_dreamland_12

Her crib used to be against that grey wall and the teepee on the other side of the room, where the bed is now. I like this new setup, I think she likes it too! On the white wall you can see my paper bunny and a garland from my friend Jordan’s BrightLab!

lula_dreamland_13

I bought this gorgeous embroidered scarf (not sure how to call it) in Mexico, as well as the striped blanket and the poms on the bear.

The teepee is from House Inhabit and the arctic rocker from The Land of Nod.

lula_dreamland_14

Always hugging her friends!

This beautiful Peruvian cushion is from Leif, my favorite online shop!

lula_dreamland_17

Shoes, shoes, shoes… I don’t know which one of us has the biggest collection! She loves trying on my shoes and walk around the apartment with them, she also like to put her shoes on her dolls, bunnies…and us! Lula is wearing sandals from Zara which I need to find in my size! I am wearing Jelly sandals from American apparel and the ones in the basket are Freshly picked moccasins! We got this beautiful rug in Morocco, during our trip last summer. I am obsessed with it and I want another one…or two!

lula_dreamland_18

I started a little photo gallery on her wall of friends and family, we also have one in the kitchen and in the hallway. She likes to pass by, point and say who she sees in the photos. We are teaching her names. It is the cutest thing to hear the way she pronounces them, you should hear her say “Augustine”, her friend’s name.

She also loves her kitchen my parents offered her for Christmas. She pretends she put salt and pepper and the casserole and taste the imaginary food and say “mmmm” and offers me to taste as well. She like put put things in oven, Every time a key or remote control seems missing, we know this is where we’ll find it.

I got the colorful rattle in Mexico and the mini grocery bag at Mapamundi kids, a new fun store for kids in San Francisco.

This cute hairpin is from Hello Shiso. I know she doesn’t have many hair yet but I’m just so impatient and I couldn’t resist. Her hairs seem actually to be growing lately! I am so excited. All our friend’s kids and others we meet at the park who are younger or same age as Lula have always more hairs. I am so jealous! But sometimes, especially during dinner time I am actually happy she doesn’t have much. It is really hard to take lasagna off hairs!!!
