As I’ve mentioned before this pregnancy is a bit different for me than the first one. Everything is happening a lot faster and that includes my ever growing baby bump. I swear I look as if I’m at least a month ahead, possibly more after dinner . And while I’m still holding on to my regular shirts, tees and sweaters I had to start thinking about maternity pants around the three month mark. There was just no way of getting around it.

Happy Monday everyone, I hope you had a wonderful weekend. We’ve had the best, and I mean THE best, weather here. The whole week has just been filled with sunshine and fun outings and it was just what we needed after the two dreary hospital days. We’ve officially opened the terrace season and I loved curling up with a book in the afternoons and enjoy a few moments to myself.
Lara also has her nose in her books a lot these days and since she still has another week of vacation left we also set aside some time to read each day. She doesn’t nap anymore so this quiet reading time slows her down a bit during the day and allows her (and me) to rest a bit. Plus it’s nice to have a little cuddle!
So when I found these beautiful book sets from Juniper Books the other day I knew it was the perfect way to introduce Lara to some of my favorite classics. I got her this Baby Lit set of 6 books through Gilt, which includes Pride & Prejudice, Moby Dick, and Alice in Wonderland, just because I own a similar set in an adult version. They’re actually counting, sounds and coloring primers so she might be a bit big for them already but I figured it was a good way to get her to know some of mama’s favorite books. Plus they will easily be passed on to her baby brother. Not to mention they look super adorable!
You can also create your own custom collections at Juniper books and they make the best gifts. I’d love to add a few more classics to my Penguin set (if only I could decide which ones!) and I’m definitely eyeing this personalized “Genius” set for Vid.
Juniper Books ships worldwide but shipping to Europe can get a bit pricey, depending on the size of your order.
My girlfriend tagged me in this amazing picture on Instagram today featuring this amazing new iPhone cover from Kate Spade New York. There’s lemons, there’s just enough of bling… I mean it had my name and Style Lemon written all over it! (Thanks a lot Lesley )
So I hopped on over to Kate Spade to check out the rest of the citrus-y awesomeness and stumbled upon these sneakers, this bag, this camera bag… The citrus theme is a part of their 21 days in Capri collection and it just feels like summer, fun and sunshine, all bound to bring a smile to your face. I don’t know what it is about Kate Spade but I’m definitely loving it.
Ahhh when life gives you lemons…
Hiiiiiii! Wondering where the heck I’ve been and why I just disappeared from the internet since last weekend? Ha, let me tell you, this was as unplanned as it gets and I actually had a bunch of fun posts in store for you this week.
That is until…a super weird sharp pain started shooting through my stomach and back on Sunday afternoon and I had to take a little trip to the hospital. Which is where I stayed for the next couple of days. It was kind of scary and worrying for a few hours there but luckily it all turned out OK and the baby was and is in great form, it was just his mom that was a bit problematic! I’ve never been so relieved.
Let me tell ya people, kidney stones and infections are no fun at all and should try to be avoided at all costs.
Anyhow, I’m now back home being taken care of and pampered like a real lady but I did have to take it easy for a few days there. Just wanted to keep you in the loop and thank you all for being patient and sticking around while I took this little impromptu “hospital vacation”.
We’ll be back in full force tomorrow and hopefully this was the first and the last hospital break I’ll take until this little mister comes out to meet us in June!
P.S. The photo above is from when I woke up in the hospital on Monday morning realizing I’m accidentally wearing a full on leopard outfit. I’m pretty sure the nurses and the doctors were like “oh man the girl in 134 loves a good cheetah print”. You never know who might see you in your PJ’s haha!
Today is Lara’s last day of school before they’re off for the “winter” holidays for two weeks. And this time, for a change, I’m actually prepared with tons of activities and excursions that will keep us busy over the next two weeks. While I love staying at home from time to time and do nothing, I’m usually pretty adamant that if the sun is shining and the weather is nice we should be out and about exploring. It drives Vid nuts but I’ve kind of rubbed off on Lara so she’s always excited to go.
However, the weather isn’t always on our side so I like to be ready for the rainy holiday days as well. Enter Seedling; a wonderful brand from New Zealand that features a wide range of products and incredibly fun craft kits that enable kids and their parents to enjoy quality time together while learning and being creative.
I’m picking up this bird house kit for Lara so we can put it on our terrace. She loved putting the food out for the birdies at her grandparents’ house so I know she’ll be excited to have her own as well.
You can shop Seeedling products here and they ship worldwide. Plus their prices are super reasonable (comparing them to the ones here in craft stores here in France).
P.S. They also have a special capsule collection available for goop now! Your littles can create their own iPod covers or a tote bag.
