  As a first time Mom most of the time you will feel overwhelmed. Overwhelmed by the change in your life, by the amount of new information it is thrown at you, by the love for this tiny human being and the list can go on. Now that 6 months have passed since I took on the role of a Mom, I asked myself what could have helped me to make this period easier. And here are … [Read More...]

Pointy flats

I have a thing for flats these days. I have been wearing  flats ever since Luca joined us mostly because I needed to be comfortable. But also because they make me feel good and they seem to go with my new found Mama style. Yes, I seem to live in skinny capri … [Read More...]

A quick coffee run

We are big fans of coffee at our house. And honestly it is one of the incentives of getting up in the mornings when I am way too tired (Luca makes sure that I don't get enough sleep). So whenever we have a moment to ourselves me and hubby either enjoy a cup at … [Read More...]

Weekend away with a baby

We are back from our adventure in Milan with Luca. Normally I would not call a weekend away an adventure but when it is your first time away with your 15 weeks old then the term is just about right. We decided to drive since it was easier for us, Milan being … [Read More...]

Home office outfit

I miss dressing up and going to the office. There, I said it. Does this make me a bad mother? I hope not, cause I certainly don't feel like one. I love spending my days with baby Luca. We are slowly getting into a routine of our own and everyday is a new … [Read More...]

Baby Talk: Activities with a 2 month old baby

What have I been doing lately? Well besides getting to know my baby, not much. My mother was here for a week and having help was so good, that as soon as she left, I was depressed. Yes, depressed that I was again alone with no support during the day. Little … [Read More...]

My Mama Uniform

I have a new uniform as of a few weeks. Thanks to the January sale from Zara, I managed to score the most comfy trousers and a jacket that is so light, but warm enough for the sunny winter days. I never thought I will wear knit trousers as an adult but once I … [Read More...]

A first glimpse of motherhood

Our boy was 7 weeks this past Friday and I can't begin to tell you how in love we are with him. Babies have this magic power that only by looking at them you just melt. And if it's your own flesh and blood then you are in big trouble. The mix of feelings you … [Read More...]

Dreaming of Spring

I am a sucker for colour block items when it comes to clothing and accessories. So when I had to chose between a grey, black and electric blue bag from Marc Jacobs I was immediately drawn to the blue one. Then when I had to pair it with something, my hot pink … [Read More...]
