Fatherhood Without Fear

Thursday, March 30, 2017






Fancy a bit of cuteness this Thursday afternoon? Harshe and her husband, Brandon's heartwarming feed will melt your heart! It's all about showcasing relationships between real-life fathers and their children in the most adorable way.

Btw: my friend, Amy said it’s the perfect thing to scroll through when you’re trying for a baby - giggle!

Spring Flower Shower







Although wearing a floral pattern is nothing new, somehow nowadays, every single time I open a magazine, they are everywhere! And not just your regular minimal flowery spring dresses or skirts, but totally swoonworthy and unapologetic head-to-toe maxi pieces! Basically, this season you only do florals well, if you’re actually covered in them. I like it!

What do you think? Thumbs up or down?

P.S: Not into florals? How about dots then?
P.P.S: Speaking of stylish, have you entered our bar necklace GIVEAWAY yet?

Spring Home Tweak: Rhubarb Bouquet








Earlier this week I popped by a friend’s flat for a cup of coffee. When I entered, in the centre of the kitchen table there was a beautifully vibrant rhubarb leaves bouquet, standing casually in a glass vase. Yes, the vegetable! I don’t know if it was the grandness of its size or the beautiful mix of deep pink and vivid green hue, but as soon as I left her place, I marched straight to a farmers' market and picked up a rhubarb bouquet for myself.

Try it, it looks amazing and it’s very eye catching too for anyone who pops by! Ah, the little things in life...

P.S: Also, eucalyptus bouquet and Easter carrot bundle.
P.P.S: Plus, don't miss our stunning jewelry GIVEAWAY this week!

Museum Workout



Now we are talking! This is definitely the type of workout I can 100% be on board with!

Meet world-class art and sweaty aerobics class in one:) Since early February, The Met offers a 45-minute morning workout throughout the museum (yes, the actual museum) in the company of Monica Bill Barnes and Anna Bass.

The class is accompanied by a score of disco and Motown hits, and of course the most amazing art there is. The creator of the routine, Maira Kalman said: 'when we work out in nature, rather than trying to understand everything we see, we just observe. The implication was that there might be a benefit in taking that same approach to art.'

And it worked. Just imagine squatting in front of John Singer Sargent’s 'Portrait of Madame X' or balancing on one leg before Henry VIII’s rigid armor, or even lying on the floor next to Harriet Whitney Frishmuth’s 'The Vine'.

Incredible, isn’t it?

P.S: The metropolitan bicycle-ride with a bit of style.
P.P.S: A sassy GIVEAWAY is coming up next!

How To Find Your Go-To Lippy Colour


Fancy finding that perfect everyday lipstick hue that looks foxy and makes you feel awesome in your own skin?

Yup, I'm with you on that:) Actually, I promised myself, that this spring I'll finally discover the 'it' lippy for me. Fancy knowing how I'm about to make this happen? Well, by using Hannah's super smart fingertips trick.

Here is how it goes:

Next time you're shopping for lipstick, 'grab three lipstick shades you like and apply one shade to your index finger, one to your middle finger, and one to your ring finger. If it's a nude, try and go for one close to your natural lip colour, one darker and one lighter. Then simply hold each fingertip up to your mouth to measure!'

Hannah also pointed out that while you're doing this little experiment, it's worth holding the colours against your eyes too, as certain lipstick shades can really bring out the colour of your eyes in the most beautiful way.

Are you game? Let's go...

P.S: And this super nifty hostess bathroom prep secret.
P.P.S: Plus, this very French reading list that I adore:)

The Prettiest Way To Display Cut Flowers




Top tip: if you happen to own one of those giant-tall-glass-jar-like vases, instead of going with the traditional floral display, try arranging a few freshly cut spring blooms inside, like hyacinths or tulips, for that unique floral look.

Doesn't it look pretty?

P.S: Flotsam
P.P.S: Fresh flowers for happy life.

Ah, the little things in life...
