A little throw back thursday from 3 months ago when Lula was about 6 months old. These shots were taken for a Lovely Lady feature on Emma Dime published yesterday.

I am wearing a Club Monaco hat, Topshop leather jacket, Pilcro & The Lettepress pants, a zuni cuff and Bean bag (old). Lula is wearing a Madewell scarf, Monoprix cardigan, Zara mini pants and Freshly Picked moccasins.

MOTHER

I am so excited and proud of my friend Katie Hintz Zambrano, former editor at Refinery 29 and James McCoy of well-know blog Bleubird who launched this week the beautiful online magazine MOTHER. Finally a cool site about motherhood and a perfect resource for stylish mamas. Because being a mum is super cool, yes. All mamas take a look, I promise you won’t be disappointed! Profiles on cool moms around the country, cool finds and other interesting tips about parenting. Now in my top 5 daily reads! Oh and have I said it’s cool?! Okay, have a look already!

Have a beautiful weekend and mother’s day! (My first one!!!)

A Boho Chic Mission Artist

Last week, Lula and I had a little street style featured in the 7×7 thanks to fashion writer Katie Hintz-Zambrano. I love the photos Maria Del Rio took of us! She’s the photographer who shot me last year in my studio for Refinery 29.

I am wearing a Free People dress, Scotch & Soda vest and earrings, Steve Madden boots and a vintage Zuni cuff. Lula is wearing a Tea dress (I wish they had it in my size) and Freshly Picked moccasins.

Best of 2013

2013 was definitely the best year of my life!  A year so full of joy! I was lucky to work for clients I’ve always dreamed to work for such as Milk Magazine, Cosmopolitan Magazine, Gap Baby among many others. A beautiful trip to Maui and fun weekends in Coachella, Palm springs, Los Angeles, NY…! I enjoyed so much being pregnant and the birth of my baby girl was the most beautiful and magical moment. I had so much fun working on my baby announcement and decorating her nursery. All the new beautiful and talented people I met and friends I made! The workshops I’ve been to, the new techniques I learned. And I am so thankful for all the bunny customers. I am so glad for all the support and encouraging words. Thank you thank you thank you!

Here is to 2014! I am looking forward to see my baby girl growing up (even if I wish she’d stay small), seeing her first steps and listening to her first words. And I am so exciting for the future illustration projects I’ll be working on! I am also working on new products for the shop I hope I’ll be able to share soon. I hope 2014 is a year of travel: South America, Morocco, Japan… and starting with France in february! My brother, grand-parents and friends will finally meet Lula! I am so so excited and impatient. We are also planning on a road trip to Arizona in spring! How fun!

As for my resolutions, I want to learn more about knitting and weaving. I want to learn ukulele! My husband offered my one for christmas! Now I don’t have anymore excuses not to do it. Also getting back to running, read more and find a hobby to share with my husband, we’ve been talking about taking lessons together, maybe photography or cooking…

Read my favorite moment of 2013 and resolution for 2014 on Refinery 29.

What are yours?
