Precious moment with my baby girl yesterday at the carousel. She loves to cuddle.
Have a beautiful weekend.
Lula turns 1 on august 17th! This is so soon, I can’t believe it! Here is the little invitation I sent to her friends via Instagram. The theme will be “fete foraine” which means amusement park. It is inspired by the well-known Parc de la tete d’or in my hometown Lyon in France. I used to go a lot and brought Lula for the first time last february when she was just 5 months old. I can’t wait to go during our trip to France in september. Cotton candy, swans, swing, duck fishing game… a lot of fun activities, I can’t wait to celebrate my baby girl’s first birthday!

Colorful doors are meant for photos! Lula is wearing a Levi’s scarf and Zara overall. I am wearing Levi’s denim shirt and shorts, a hand woven purse from Sayulita, Mexico and Steve Madden boots.
I was going to do a From The Weekend post but there are too many photos I wanted to share from this fantastic weekend that I decided to separate in 2 posts: Saturday and Sunday. The weather was so gorgeous, after a little bit of work in the morning on saturday wrapping up some clients projects (because my parents arrive soon and we are going on a road trip) we went for a little bike ride to Hayes Valley and stopped at Duboce Park for a little snack and some playground fun!
I love the cute houses around Duboce park, this one is one of my favorite since I moved to San Francisco, I always love to stop by and take some photos. The navy blue door used to be mint, they recently repainted it I think, just for us so it matches our outfits of the day haha.
I am wearing a Scotch & Soda shirt from last summer and Levi’s embroidered shorts. Lula is wearing a Levi’s scarf, Old Navy top and Zara shorts.
She loves cookies, look at her stealing a piece from inside the paper bag!
And lemonade! From the straw!
Here are a few fun props I made that were commissioned by amazing photographer Maria Del Rio for her summertime shoot in San Francisco. It is featured in the issue 10 of Minc Magazine. I love all the colors and fun styling! And the super cool graphic background, it was shot in the sunset, a colorful neighborhood near the ocean. Don’t you want to have a garage door like this? I also want those super curly hairs!
If there’s 2 summer prints I will never get tired of it’s the watermelon and the pineapple! I mean look at these super cute limited edition moccasins by Freshly Picked! Lula already has 7 pairs of mocks, is it too much if I get another pair?…I’ll be able to open a store soon!
Just one more month until Lula turns one! Where did the time go?
Her favorite activity lately is to hide under blankets and wait for me to find her. She waves now and applauds. She dances every time music is on. She can say mama and our cat’s name. The other day I was calling Maggie who was in the backyard, Lula repeated it, so funny. And now she repeats every time. She is such a happy baby! Since we turned her stroller seat to face the other way she waves and smiles at people and I always see people smiling back and say “nice shoes” and “aw, look at that headband”… I love her so much and I love being her mama. This is getting more and more fun every day!
Honest Company diapers and Freshly Picked moccasins is the best combo! I am obsessed with both. I started buying the diapers from Honest about a month ago and I loooove them. How cute are they? I mean look at those prints, so much more fun than the plain white and cuter than the cartoon character ones! Lula loves them too!
We met with a few friends at Yuba River on saturday. It is about 2 hours and half north east from San Francisco near a super cute little town called Nevada City. We hiked for 20min to arrive to this magical place. We spent most of the day in the water, babies in floaters, we had a nice picnic and watched the babies play together. It was super fun and I can’t wait to go back. I wish I took more photos to show you the beautiful scenery. Thank you so much to our friends Anastassia and Dan who we met a few weeks ago in Mexico for inviting us to their annual trip to Yuba river’s secret spot.
Lula is wearing a Bobo Chose hat, Gap swimsuit and Zara sandals.
