This poor little blog of mine has been so neglected these past couple of weeks. I blame it on being 38 weeks pregnant and falling asleep on the couch way too often. It makes it really hard to sit down, feel creative, and actually make a post. But I did want to do a few special posts before my bébé makes it's debut, which could be any day now! Ah I have to pinch myself because it all still feels so surreal and I am so excited.

After sharing a couple of sneak peeks of our baby nursery on my Instagram throughout the past few weeks, we are finally all done. On Sunday we put up the wallpaper by the baby's crib, and by we I mean just James, because I was having regular contractions all day. I really thought it was the real deal and James was telling me to hold my horses and just wait until he finished the last strip of wallpaper before I have this baby. Well false alarm, thankfully, we finished everything and baby decided to stay in a little longer. Now I am hoping it wants to stay in until after my Mum arrives on September 30, but unfortunately it is not up to me.

If you saw my nursery inspiration post than you would know I wanted this room to be gender neutral, fun, whimisical, and comfortable. I also wanted it to be a room that James and I would want to hang out in. After many, many hours this Summer of painting, building furniture, and decorating we are all done and I am so happy with how it turned out. I have to say this has been the most fun room I have designed in my house, and I am a little jealous my bedroom doesn't look this styled. So here is my bébé's finished nursery, I hope you like it as much as we do.

I have been collecting different pieces of art or cards before I became pregnant knowing I would love to one day make a gallery wall with them. So with those and some sentimental photos and gifts I put together this fun feature above the dresser. It is so nice to have special keepsakes displayed for baby to grow up with. That gorgeous white mobile was handmade by my sister Alex, and I hung it above the changing table so baby has something to look at while I get the amazing job of changing diapers done. 

How amazing is this wallpaper? I am so in love! I knew this wall was missing something so after searching online for different papers I found this great company called Majvillan and ordered a roll right away. FYI if you have never hung wallpaper up before it is so much easier than we thought. Now I want to wallpaper my whole house!

I wanted to make my own mobile for above the crib because I couldn't find any that I loved or I found that they were too expensive. So on one of James and my weekly hikes I found this branch in our favourite forest, cleaned it up, and sewed and glued these seven little birds to it. It is all a lot easier said than done because it did take me an embarassingly long amount of time to make, but I am happy my baby will look up at something I made by hand for it. 

I wanted to make a comfortable little reading/nursing corner, and everyone was telling me to get a really good rocking chair because I will be spending a lot of time in it. So I found this super cozy rocking chair second hand online originally from Ikea. 

Having accessible shelves for books and toys was also important for when baby is old enough to play so this bookshelf also from Ikea works really well. Now we just need a few more toys and books to actually fill it up.

It is so exciting knowing now the only missing piece in this room is the baby and all we have to do is be a little bit more patient. For now you will see me sitting in that rocking chair everyday, imagining life with this baby, and wondering who he or she is. Have I mentioned how excited I am?

So there you go, the full nusery tour, I would love to know what you think!

I am hoping to share a few more posts before baby arrives, so keep an eye out for those. 
Until next time, Bon Weekend xoxo


Happy Midweek! Laziness has struck me hardcore this week and all I want to do is relax, and listen to chilled out playlists. So this week I made one just for that. For days when all you want to do is curl up and hibernate, because maybe you are hungover, you had a bad sleep, you're having a shitty day or maybe you're 8.5 months pregnant. Whatever the reason may be, I feel ya. Let's all be lazy together and relax with this awesome mellow Midweek mix. Enjoy!


With the launch of their brand new website and AW15/16 collection of baby clothing, I knew it was about time I finally shared with you this incredible Barcelona brand, 1 + in the family.

I have had my eye on them for some time now, stalking them on Instagram (naturally), just like any normal pregnant woman would do. As you may know, I am always searching for locally and consciously made baby products, from family run companies, with simple designs. After contacting Gemma Mases, the creator and designer of 1 + in the family and getting some more information about her and her brand, I was so inspired by her story, and knew I had to feature them.

Gemma is a Mum of three who has always had a passion for children's fashion. Wanting to create her own brand, she was inspired when her sister had her first child, baby Bruna.

''The brave decision of my sister to start a family as a single mother, was key to encourage me to undertake the project that I had been dreaming for so long, that's why we decided to name the brand 1 + IN THE FAMILY''.

What I love about the designs are how minimalistic they are and you can mix and match each piece to create new outfits, which is always helpful when dressing a baby. With the refined colour palette it also makes shopping for this mystery bébé so simple, since almost all of the clothes are gender neutral. I also love how cozy, soft, and comfortable they are. Don't you just love the designs? So cute!

1 + in the family is sold in stores Worldwide, if you are in the EU you can shop online at Hula Hoop, Pas A Pas, So Lovable, Carrousel Kids and Babyssimo. If you live outside the EU you can contact them for a list of stores in your area. 

I can't wait to dress my little Winter bébé in these!


Escaping this non stop Summer heat has been my mission all season. So when our friends suggested we pile into their car and drive 1.5 hours to spend the day at the waterfalls on Friday, I was in! None of us had ever been to Sillans la Cascade before, so we didn't know what to expect. But like most surprises this was a great one. Scaling down a 1000m trail, led us to the most beautiful waterfall cascading down into a turquoise pool below. We walked along the riverbank to find the perfect spot to set up our picnic and spent the day relaxing, and watching brave souls swim in the coldest water I have ever felt in my life. For some reason turquoise water always looks like it should be warm and tropical to me, so when I dipped my little toesies in the water, I was in for an unpleasant shock.

After lunch I was feeling ambitious and decided I wanted to try and swim by the waterfall. My friend Alex and I being brave, strong women ventured knee deep into the bright blue arctic water. Debating for 15 minutes whether or not we would actually go swimming. I knew I would be so mad at myself if I didn't suck it up and just swim, and seriously, if I can grow a baby inside me for the past 8 months, then I can swim in a little cold water. So I finally just did it. The words that proceeded to escape my mouth would offend your ears, this water was made for polar bears. After forcing James to take a photo of me trying to enjoy myself I hurried out for dry land. Then Alex followed suit and plunged herself in right after. Funny how the men made every excuse in the book not to go in, but us ladies went in, no problem. Girl power!

As James and I are counting down the final weeks before our baby arrives, it is so nice to spend time relaxing with friends and being a little adventurous before I am in full nesting mode, and don't want to leave my bed. We had such a fun day here, I am hoping we can squeeze a few more getaway days like this before October.


Ah Summer love. Isn't it the best? I thought since we only have a few weeks left of this glorious Summer, I would make a little playlist for all you lovers of the Summer. Some of these songs are about lasting love and others are about heart break, you know, for those flings that don't last past Autumn. So snuggle up with your guy or gal, while enjoying the final days we have of the heat, sun, and beach days.
