It is just certainty that you want this to … [Read More...]

Beauty – my skin care essentials

Every woman has her own beauty routine that she swears by. I always try to improve mine by listening to what my body and face are telling me. The last very powerful reaction I got from my skin was, I believe, two years ago when I went from a mixed skin to a … [Read More...]


Home decor: Nursery

We have finally managed to finish the baby's room this weekend. I am in my 37 week and our little fellow has his special room waiting for him. It took us three months to finish everything, from painting 2 walls and then deciding exactly what furniture and … [Read More...]


Plaid shirt

Ever since I entered the last mile of my pregnancy, I appreciate more and more the comfort of dresses, flats and tights instead of jeans. I find that most of the trousers are too tight over my belly and that can get pretty uncomfortable through out the day. … [Read More...]

Navy blue shirt dress

Another great find in Zara made my day last week. It is the shirt dress that can always come in handy since it is classy, but also business enough to wear at work. For me is as indispensable in my wardrobe as the little black dress. The colour is one of my … [Read More...]


How to grow tomatoes?

Well this is not a topic I thought I would be writing a few years ago, but it turns out that my little experiment of growing tomatoes on our terrace this summer, turned out very well. I got the seeds in May from my Mum and beginning of June I was planting them … [Read More...]


Little black dress

Last week I had an office party and the dress code was Fab and Glam. I looked in my closet and nothing seemed more appropriate than a little black dress. Since it was too late to order something online, I went to Zara to see if I could find something. I scored … [Read More...]

It's officially autumn around where we live and I started to stock up on sweaters. I was browsing H&M for basics when I found this maxi sweater in the non maternity section. I got the smallest size and it still looks loose and most likely I will be able to … [Read More...]
