Summer hat


We've been pretty busy over here. I went back to work in June, my parents came for a visit and Luca had his daycare accommodation period. Plus it is summer and we are trying to spend as much time as possible outside. My new favourite item when it comes to enjoying warmer and sunny days is a nice  hat. I am just in love with the one I got from Paris from Banana Republic (free … [Read More...]

Books to read this summer

I always have a list of books that I want to read. Do I get to read all of them? No, of course not, but let's hope that in this lifetime I will find the time to read more. I remember the time when reading was my only job. As a French Literature Major I had to … [Read More...]


Our Parisian weekend sans bebe

Finally I get to post a few updates about our weekend in Paris. It was the first time since we had Luca that we were just the two of us for 3 days. Thank God for Skype and for the internet since it made our time apart a lot more easier. It was nice to be away, … [Read More...]


Family photo session

We are getting ready for our first weekend away without the baby. It is one of those milestones that I feel we have to reach, but I am not sure how ready I am. I sometimes think six months is too soon for me to leave him, but in the same time I know that I … [Read More...]


The blue shirt

I have always loved a nice shirt, but recently I started wearing them quite often. I am such a fan of the loose fit ones that go well with skinny jeans and not only. I love a soft fabric that still looks well put together after a few hours of sitting and … [Read More...]


The Little Things

Guys, I am wrapping my final week as a stay at home Mom. I am retuning to work on Monday for only a few days a week and I feel so weird. I am not ready for this new chapter but again what woman is?! I will just have to figure everything out as we go along. But … [Read More...]

Our bedroom

Summer bedroom essentials

  What is better then a good night's sleep? Since Luca joined our family we learned the importance of a good night's sleep, especially since in the first 5 months of his life, we slept only a few hours at the time. So I started to be much more aware of … [Read More...]


10 things I wish I’d known before becoming a Mom.

  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 … [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...]


Mother’s Day

My first year celebrating Mother's Day! It is just so surreal to think that for almost 6 months now I have been learning to be a Mum to the most amazing baby boy. Every second I spend with him I get how incredible lucky and blessed I am. Being a Mum is the … [Read More...]


Luca’s Christening

Luca was baptised as a christian on the 13th of April which coincided with the Easter Monday for the Orthodox church. It was a nice day and we were extremely blessed to have friends and family sharing the day with us. Luca was not particularly happy during the … [Read More...]



I bet all of us feel inspired by Spring. I know I fell like a new beginning is unfolding right in front of our eyes. When I was home at my parents, I loved how everything was blooming and from one day to another we had a different scenery in the garden. I felt … [Read More...]


A two week road trip with a baby

We are back from our marathon holiday. We literally spent the last 2 weeks on the road, in total we stayed at 4 hotels plus our parents houses. It was hectic, but it was much better then I expected. Luca was incredibly nice and he adjusted to all the changes … [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...]


Baby Talk: 4 months old

Luca turned 4 months last week. I am still having an Awww moment every time I realise the special bond I have with him. We are the luckiest people in the world to have him in our lives. As any proud mamma out there I want to memorise every moment with him. So … [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...]
