Sisters!

We couldn’t have hoped for a better big sister. Lula has been the sweetest since we welcomed Anouk. She asks for her sister all the time, the first thing she does when she comes home from preschool is to look for her and she has a big smile on her face when she sees her. She gives her kisses, hold her tiny hands, rock her if she cries, sing to her… and watching them interact is simply the best. I can’t believe how grown up she looks all of a sudden!

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?

Les Petits Carreaux + My Yellow Bunny

petits_carreaux_1

Do you know the kids clothing brand Les Petits Carreaux? it is designed in France and made in California, I met with the founder Stéphanie a few weeks ago and she offered me that super cute neon yellow skirt for Lula, I’m obsessed with it! I can’t wait for the days to be a little warmer so she can wear it.

Also it’s really fun to see my paper bunny in the spring/summer lookbook!

Hello and Happy Monday!

Here are a few images of the cat (my new paper animal kit I released in the shop last week) shot by Maria Del Rio. I had so much fun styling this little playroom for the girls! They had fun drawing, dancing, jumping on the bed, reading stories…

As you can tell, I am a little obsessed by the light purple and apricot colors lately with a little touch of neon! Check my Instagram for more photo inspiration.

The clothes are from Zara Kids and Old Navy. The neon orange chairs are Mini Bertoias. The lights are from BrightLab!

I had fun making this bed from a palette I found and spray painted light purple. I think the result looks pretty cool and Lula was so happy when she saw it.

Have a Great Weekend!

LA_7lowres

Last weekend we took the train for a long ride (but worth it at the end, watching the sunset from San Luis Obispo to SB was so magical) to Santa Barbara early on Saturday morning. We spent the night there and drove to LA on Sunday, had lunch and did a little bit of shopping (Pebble and Heyoka Hideout) in the dreamy Topanga Canyon on the way. In LA we spent a couple night in this super fun Airstream in Venice, just a few blocks from Abbot Kinney street and the beach. It was a really fun and unique experience! The property has a lot of character and the garden is beautiful. Lula made friend with Felix the bunny and the flamingos. I loved the outdoor shower! Would love to stay there again but maybe during summer, when the nights are warmer.

We went to LACMA for the first time, Lula had so much fun in the noodles and the urban lights! We spent some time at the beach, she loves the sand so much I’ve never seen her that happy. She would just let herself fell on the sand, roll and do some fun figures.

Here are a few pics from our trip! Have a great weekend!

A Perfect Way to End the Weekend

oceanbeach_1

After a long and lazy rainy morning sleeping in, we decided around 2pm to get out of the house and go for a little hike. We first went to explore Mount Davidson which I’ve heard about for a long time but never went until yesterday. A beautiful view on downtown San Francisco and Sutro tower. Then we decided to go to Ocean beach. It was really magical. I think this is Lula’s favorite place, she is always so happy at the beach. She collected little rocks, ran toward the ocean and back to the sand when the waves were chasing her, got caught by one, me too. My pants were all wet and my rain boots filled with water. We made friends with dogs… A really good way to end the weekend! And another weekend were I tell myself how lucky I am to live in this wonderful city.

And then we had to take off her clothes, wash her face and hands before getting in the new car… I was barely allowed in it, had to remove my boots.
