Happy Halloween!

I hope you had a great Halloween weekend! Here are a few photos of Lula in her handmade costume (I took the morning after). She is obsessed with planes lately, I think “avion” is the word she says the most during the day, (well after “I want…” ) so I thought it would be fun if she was a little aviator for Halloween! I made the airplane with cardboard and paint. It was fun to make and she loved it! She kept playing with it during the week, jumping in, pretend she was flying. Then came Halloween day and she refused to put it on for trick or treating… she’s been a little grumpy after her naps lately so it was impossible to get her to wear it. But hey, that’s life with a toddler right?! So we got together with a few friends families and went trick or treating anyway, we still got her to wear the helmet and goggles and me and my big belly pretended to be a cloud with a rainbow (imagine me on the way to my friend’s house in the car…haha). Lula had so much fun picking out candies and chocolates at the houses and we stopped for a good hour in front of a house with a dj for a dance party with a bunch of people, that was the best! Watching toddlers dancing is seriously the funniest thing ever.

My Baby’s Flamingo Nursery!

I had so much fun decorating this little space for our baby girl due next month! She will be sharing Lula’s bedroom. I’ve wanted a vintage rotin crib since I was pregnant with Lula so I was really happy to find one in France this summer. And I fell in love with the matching doll bed so Lula can play with her baby doll while I play with mine! The theme for this nursery is a little tropical, I wanted to make a paper flamingo for a long time so this was the perfect occasion and I thought it would look super fun with the shell mobile I bought in Greece this summer. The wall used to be grey for Lula’s nursery, but I wanted some change, something more colorful and not girly to balance with all the pink that’s in the room already! I am a little obsessed with that blue lately (I even got a new fabric set of that color for our bugaboo stroller). The one last thing I’d like to add on the wall is this beautiful pineapple mirror I saw in a cute little shop in France, they only had the larger one but my mum is on the waiting list for the little one that should arrive any day now. I am so excited to add it to the space, I think it will be really cute on the wall above the dresser.

I was so happy to find this dresser on The Land of Nod, it fits perfectly in the color palette and it looks like it was made to be with Lula’s caravan bed from Kalon studio!

When I discovered Donsje on instagram I fell in love with their booties, so thank you Donsje, now my baby girl has a bigger shoe collection than mine (yes they are not all shown in the photos…). Oh and I just saw they have new ones in their shop, I mean look at these!

I am addicted to baskets as you know and had my eye on the Eliza Gran one for quite some time. The colors of the poms is perfect for her little space and it looks great with the ones I brought back from Marrakesh and London. I added the crochet round rug to make the space a little cozier and brighten up the floor a little (our hardwood floors are so dark! I wish I could paint them all white!)

Oh I can’t wait to see her little feet in these!

Goodbye Summer!

I know we’ve already said goodbye to summer about a week ago but it doesn’t feel quite yet like fall in San Francisco. September and October are usually the best months of the year (I mean they are my favorite) where we can enjoy really nice and warm days. But I am excited for cooler days, sweater weather and getting cozy for the arrival of our baby girl in November, so soon!

For now, I am remembering the wonderful time we had in Greece with my family this summer. My parents rented a house on the island of Paros, in a charming little village called Parikia. Lula and I, my parents, my sister and brother in law all met for 12 days. Only my husband had to stay in San Francisco for work and my brother in London. Next time maybe! It’s so rare to be able to all meet at the same time in one place now we all live in different countries.

It was such a nice and relaxing trip. Walking around the little streets of Parikia, visiting other villages on the island like Naoussa, take the boat to beautiful beaches.

Looking at these photos of me in these dresses makes me realize how much my belly had grown since! I was around 25 weeks pregnant in France. Have you seen my pregnancy style feature in MOTHER mag last week? I was wearing the same dresses at 31 weeks.

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.

Lula is 2!

How did that happen? How can she be 2 already?! I feel like we celebrated her first birthday yesterday…

We celebrated with the family in France where we spent our summer (a month ago already, she turned 2 on august 17th). My parents had bought two little strawberry plants for when we arrived to surprise Lula, everyday she went to pick the red ones, tried to eat the green ones too, she would eat them all if we didn’t stop her, she loves strawberries so much! So I thought a strawberry theme for her birthday would be fun. I made a pinata that I filled up with all her favorite things: stickers, little dolls, jewelries, candies… and confettis!

lulais2_4

She’s had her first candies when we were in France and ice-cream and chocolate almost everyday thanks to her grand-parents! She knows the words for these really well now and keep asking for some since we got back! But the vacations are over…
