So our trip to the States is a mere week away. At this point I’m super excited and super anxious at the same time. I had the best time planning it; our itinerary looks as if we’re a bunch of foreign delegates on a tight schedule and not two happy tourists, but after 5 years of waiting to go back there I had to find a way to curb my enthusiasm and planning was just the trick. Luckily Vid is one organized soul so he wasn’t completely freaked out by my traveling agency ways.
We’re going to visit NYC and Boston and even though we initially wanted to add the West Coast to the scenario, I just couldn’t bring myself to be away for two whole weeks, so we postponed that for another time and compromised on ten days instead. Some of you may be wondering what’s s four days more but let me tell you, when I even think about not seeing Lara for ten I get seriously stressed out already. If you add four more to that, I’m pretty sure I’d have a full blown heart attack by now.
At the same time, I’m super excited about spending ten whole days with my man. The last time we’ve done that was…ohhh, never! This will be the first time! How crazy is that? So ten days of sleeping in, wandering, exploring, eating (OK, and shopping) don’t sound half bad and I absolutely can’t wait.
I think I did a pretty good job with figuring out everything we need to see but we also want to catch a show on Broadway and I’d love some suggestions. Initially I planned on seeing the Orphans but they ended their run early so now I’m at a bit of a loss now. Maybe The Book of Mormon, or just go classic with Chicago or Wicked?
We’ll be taking lots of photos obviously so I’m hoping to thoroughly document our escapades over here on Style Lemon. Let the countdown begin!

This past weekend was our last weekend in Montpellier before we’re off to Slovenia for the summer holidays. We’ve been sans daddy for over a week now and while we’ve been missing him terribly, we’re taking some advantage of our “girls only” time as well. Summer has finally kicked into full gear so we made good on our beach plans over the weekend. We had tons of fun, with lots of ice cream, cuddling and an obligatory trip to the zoo Sunday afternoon. I don’t know how your kids are but Lara could probably keep house at the zoo. She never tires of it. Like never, ever. Continue reading »
Lara is not very into dolls. At least not yet. I’m hoping this shifts at one point because I, on the other hand, loooove dolls. Especially the cute knitted ones or those made out of cotton. Kind of like these adorable custom Sophie & Lili dolls. Oh, to be 3 again…
But there’s more. The real reason I stumbled upon Sophie & Lili in the first place are actually these even more gorgeous watercolor sketches. I’m getting this mother-daughter original watercolor for Lara’s room, which I absolutely 1000% love. I’m thinking of a slight re-decoration project for her room now that she’s a little lady (at this point she’d probably tell you that she was a big girl already) and this will be absolutely perfect.

LaRoche Posay Anthelios Dermo Pediatrics Sunscreen 7. Song of Ice and Fire (Game of Thrones) Book Series 8. Calypso St. Barth Valencia Tote
I’ve been dreaming about going to the beach for weeks. Like swimsuit wearing, sand frolicking, swimming, full on beach outing. I know Lara has been dreaming about the exact same thing as well, although her dream probably doesn’t include the Song of Ice and Fire book series like mine does.
Anyhow, I think the gods of nice weather will finally smile upon us this weekend and give us a sunny warm Saturday perfect for a full package beach day. Above you’ll find some of my beach essentials for this summer. Finally, right?
We’ve got a pretty sweet camera at home and we try to take it around as much as possible when we go on our little trips, but when it’s just me and the little one, I rarely take it along. Instead I just rely on my iPhone. That’s quite a pity actually, especially now that I’m working on our project life album and I could really use high quality images.
Part of it is because it’s kind of huge and heavy and while we have a special camera backpack for it, it doesn’t leave much space for anything else so if I did take it along I’d find myself lugging around a backpack, a bag and quite possibly (read: 90% sure) a three year old. Continue reading »
