Yay! Creative Block has arrived! I received yesterday the book I am featured in. The writer, Danielle Krysa is an artist and the blogger behind the well-know Jealous Curator.
I am so proud and honored to be featured in this beautiful book, among these amazingly talented artists from all around the world. Creative Block shares the artists insight into their process and offer challenges to push you and help you moving forward when you are stuck! So fun!
Friends and followers in the bay area, come to Little Paper Planes march 5th from 7-9pm. The shop will be hosting the book launch party. There will be wine, sweet treats, and a few of the unblocking exercises set up. Books will be for sale at the event, or if you already have one please bring it for Danielle and the bay area artists (Arian Behzadi, Lisa Congdon, Kelly Lynn Jones and me!) to sign.
Half a year old! Wow! Time really does fly by. We came back yesterday from France. We spent our last days there enjoying family and friends. We went to the playground for the first time and she looooved the seesaw! I can’t wait to bring her to the swings in the playground near our house in San Francisco.
A bunny of course!
It was so funny to see as soon as we were sitting on the seesaw she grabbed the handles and started to laugh while going up and down.
I can’t believe I got my mum on the seesaw! And with the dog on leash! This proves how much she loves Lula and she would do anything to make her laugh.
This is my parents 4 months old puppy. Lula was so attracted to him. Every time he would be around in the house, she’d sit on her bouncer and show her hands so he could lick them! She was so excited, making cute sounds and laughing.
And my sister came from London for a long weekend to spend some time with her.
There’s many reasons why my backpack works wonderfully as a diaper bag, check them out on BabyList!
One of them is that my husband can carry it too without being embarrassed!
These photos were taken last weekend when it was still warm in San Francisco. Now we are back to winter temperatures, I mean californian winter temperatures.
Me – Scotch & soda vest and earings, Zara top, Madewell pants, Free People necklace, vintage Zuni turquoise cuff.
Lula – Madewell scarf, Petit Bateau dress, Zara Mini pants, Freshly Picked moccasins.
I hope you all had a wonderful week. I am wraping up a couples of client projects before leaving this sunday for France, I am so excited! And a little scared too, this will be the first time I am flying with Lula without my husband and for a long trip (12 hours).
I love this shot of her I took a couple days ago. Very often lately, when I put her down in the crib for a nap, I find her on her tummy chatting with her friends (the dolls and stuffed animal).
Also since Lula’s birth, every night when she’s sleeping we find ourselves looking at photos and videos of her, we miss her and can’t wait for the morning to see her little smile when we come get her out of bed. Do you parents do that too?
After my winter accessories, this is hers!
The Fjallraven Kanken backpack I use as her diaper bag (of course an accessorize for every season!), the H&M cute little star blanket my sister got for her, the baby Gap bear hat, cozy socks from Zara, little boots from Baby Gap and moccasins from Freshly Picked and warm Edoche mittens!!!
A little saturday afternoon stroll around our neighborhood. Enjoying the nice weather.
I am wearing - Zara vest, H&M denim shirt and pants, Free People necklace, Swedish Hasbeen shoes at Madewell.
Lula is wearing – Little Hip Squeaks headband, Zara sweater and pants, Freshly Picked moccasins.
I was reading my friend Jordan’s blog Oh Happy Day last week and apparently today is chocolate cake day! haha. Well, I won’t say no to that either and I can even confess: every day is a chocolate day for me! This is a real addiction. I don’t smoke, I don’t drink…but chocolate mmmm! So I paper baked yesterday and made this chocolate bundt cake! One of my favorite. Inspired by a mold I have.
I love this shot my friend Sandra took of Lula this afternoon. I love her mischievous little smile.
Happy friday and have a beautiful weekend!
Going to France in a week and half means bringing out again my winter accessories. I don’t think the weather will be as warm as in San Francisco lately (23 degrees celsius in january).
So here are a few of my favorites for travelling: The Madewell leather backpack, I don’t actually have it, but I wish. I love the color and the shape and I would definitely use it for spring/summer too, it goes with everything! A handknitted scarf and a Madewell pair of sunglasses, my leather gloves from Club Monaco and always a hand cream, I love this one! Some Happy socks, their design are so fun and cozy. My Hunter rain boots, yes I was looking at the weather in France, it’s been raining a lot! And my Club Monaco hat!
Coming soon, Lula’s winter accessories! Have a beautiful and happy day!
