Are you guys ready for another amazing Tuesday giveaway?

Today we are treating the little ones in your life – you can win a $100 gift card from Little Citizens Boutique to buy whatever your heart desires. And let me tell you, your heart’s going to desire a heck of a lot once it checks out Little Citizens Boutique!

LCB has treasures for kids from around the world – they have some of my favorite French brands like Djeco & Vilac. It is the perfect place to shop if you want well-designed toys that your kids will want to use over and over again, if you want more creativity and less big brands in your life.  In LCB’s own words: “Our toys and clothes inspire the imagination, remind us of good times past and present, and prepare little citizens for the adventures of their life.” I don’t know about you, but as far as I am concerned, that’s exactly what I expect out of toys for my own children. Did you see that little wooden coffee machine? I want it for my girls, they would have such a kick out of pretending to make coffee like mom and dad!

Just a sweet photo to share with you today.

Now that the Valentine’s day craziness is over, it seems only normal that I’d like to talk about love, right? :) I didn’t really plan it that way, but last week my best friend Soazic sent me this picture of her grand-parents…made my heart melt. Her grand-parents have been in love for over sixty years – that 6.0, people!!– and I don’t know, isn’t that beautifully crazy?

I’m not a super-duper romantic kind of girl – oh I love a weekend away with hubby and small attentions, but I’ve never really been into rose petals on the bed or Nicholas Sparks movies for that matter. But seeing that kind of endless, genuine love almost brings tears to my eyes. We all know that being in a relationship isn’t all filled with pink and unicorns, and it takes a great deal of work and understanding to make sure that love doesn’t die with time -but personally, I am up for the challenge. Because growing old with my best friend, that’s one of my biggest wishes, and really, I couldn’t imagine my life any other way but with my husband next to me, holding my hand and making silly jokes. Happy Monday, friends!

PS: Did you enter our giveaway?! Hurry, hurry, you have until tomorrow to do so!

Last weekend I was miserable – runny nose and soreness that comes from blowing it too often, felt chilly and all I wanted was to hang out under the cover.And let’s not talk about my (rather grumpy) mood, shall we? Hubby helped out with the girls, prepared me about a thousand cups of tea, and that alone helped so much. When you’re sick, the smallest intention goes a long way! And so I thought, wouldn’t it be so nice to make a little something special for our friends when they are sick? Here a list of fun little DIYs that will help you save you friend’s day:

  • FOR AN UPSET STOMACH: How pretty is this hot water bottle cosy? Hot water bottles are so great to help relieve stomach ache – or any muscle pain for that matter. I also heard that ginger beer is one of the best remedies if you feel a bit of nausea/upset stomach, so I found this great little recipe.
  • FOR A SORE THROAT:I don’t know if it’s true, but I heard that eating 3 or 4 marshmallows soothes a sore throat. Apparently, the gelatin helps relieving irritation. Plus, I am pretty sure that the sight of these color dipped marshmallows alone would make anyone feel better :)
  • FOR MORNING SICKNESS: Is it me, or is there something in the water? In the past three weeks I’ve heard of 5 of my friends expecting a baby for July! Ginger is one of the best thing to calm morning sickness, and I’m sure it would make my friends’ day to receive a pretty little box filled with this yummy candied ginger.
  • SOOTHE A COLD: When I had a cold last week, my nose and lips were so so dry! I wish I had some of this pink grapefruit sugar lip scrub and some great coconut moisturizer to make it all better!

Of course, you can also just bring them a box of Advil that you picked up at the pharmacy…but if you have the time, I think any of these little will make your friends feel all that much more loved and cared for. Do you guys have any special homemade remedies that you make for yourself or friends when sick?

Happy weekend, friends!

Today I wanted to share the gorgeous and very special pictures of Danish actress Freja Zeuthen. Not only because the pictures are stunning (the flowered crowns!!), but also because Freja is a stunning person, both inside and out. Freja has become a good friend of me and my little family since we first met a couple of years ago, and I am always amazed by her – she’s so much fun, compassionate, and sweet at the same time. A true Scandinavian beauty, if you ask me. I really REALLY hope that all of her dreams come true. She deserves it so much. And I have no doubt the rest of the world would love her as much as me and my family does.

Ok, so the image to the right isn’t technically about something in black & white, but I loved these images together so much that I had to post it. And seriously, how stylish would you look with you hair up in knots like this (how-to by A Beautiful Mess here) while strolling through your neighborhood with your dog on this triangle dog leash? Happy Thursday, friends!

PS: These earrings & necklace would also be a great match for this! Have you entered the giveaway yet?

Happy Wednesday, friends! Having a good week? It’s a pretty big one for us, and hopefully I’ll be able to tell you more about what’s going on soon! Spring is still nowhere in sight here in NYC – we’ve got to run from one place to the other with the stroller because it’s so cold and windy here in Battery Park city. But my mind is already in place where the flowers are budding and everything looks bright in the Spring sun. Here are some of the things on my wish list these days, in a warm spring palette of pastels, bright pink and gold. Hope you like it!

1. I’ve always wanted a globe in my home to show our daughters about all the place we talk about. Love this vintage globe at Ia’s Vintage.
2. These little paper bags are too adorable, perfect for little party favors! By love Mae.
3. Love the pop of neon against the simplicity of the grey fabric of this quilt by Paper Plane Home.
4. I wish they made these my size!  Metallic suede bootie by Juicy Couture.
5. How pretty is this ring? Love the roughness of the metal. Geo drusy ring in blush at Leif Shop.
6. I can NEVER have enough washi tape. Great combination of colors and patterns by Torie Jayne, who seems just as addicted as me :)
7. Pretty hand-painted little treasure box by Anamarko.
