Ok, so now I know. I will never, ever, buy shoes with shoestrings for my daughter again. They are ALWAYS come undone!!

But since I liked this pair of shoes a lot, I couldn’t give up at the idea of giving them away. So… I pimped out the shoes with a bit of creativity and I’m enthusiastic about the outcome: they won’t untie anymore and they’re even prettier!!! ūüėČ

Hi everyone!

Today I’m sharing an easy DIY project: a flower box to be put inside your baby’s nursery or everywhere else in your house! Let’s say you have a bright and cozy spot in your home where you love spending relaxing moments sipping a coffee… why not cheering it further up with some colored flowers in a window box? I love the idea!!

You simply need a plastic flower box, floral foam and fabric flowers. I chose daisies and tulips since they are my favorite, but you can obviously pick whichever you like and also make them yourself! … Read more...

The idea of writing a blog was still taking its shape into my mind and I was already overwhelmed by notes, reminders, random notebook pages, sketches, etc. Well, the good thing is that the ideas were freely flowing but… what a mess!!

So, I immediately started to look for some kind of organization and I found myself urging the help of a “Blog planner”. Well, turns out I’m not the only one, since I found many different blog planners online (provided by other generous bloggers), yet I was not entirely satisfied with any of these different versions.

DIY Fairy Mobile

by

Fairyok

My latest addiction? Sculpting with fommy! In Italy it is also known as moosgummi, a thin layer of colored foam that gets very plastic when heated, allowing tridimensional creations!

To practice a bit with with this material I decided to go for a nursery mobile… isn’t this cute? The body of the fairy was made out by felt roses, to which I hanged romantic and scented bars of soap as well as small bells. Head and wings are made with Renkalik Fommy, and decorated with Sharpie and glitters!

I love it! And my toddler does, too!!

lamp makeover cover

This is a super easy, yet very cute project that I did some time ago, while still planning and setting up Minnie’s nursery.

I had bought a cute and feminine bedside lamp at Zara Home, yet it seemed too anonymous to me… So with just a few touches I changed its appearance and made it look much more suitable for a cute nursery! First of all, I spray painted the wooden base of the lamp ’cause it was plain white, while I wanted it to match all the other furniture pieces in my daughter’s room, which are a pale … Read more...

This year I got a little late with all Easter preparations, and I found myself in the urge of coming up with something cute yet simple for two special moms I’ve recently had the blessing to become close to. No time for making my own printables, no time for setting up a DIY gift box… so what could I do? Recycle boxes from my wedding and borrow a printable from another blogger!!

So, first of all I used a very cute Bunny layout from a free printable generously shared by Erin from¬†Strawberry Mommycakes¬†via http://www.Iheartnaptime.net (be sure you get … Read more...

Keep track of yearly world events in a… fashionable way!

elle mag

 

I have a very clear memory of something that happened last year, at the beginning of March.

It was a bright and sunny day, and I was lying in a hospital bed and reading my favourite fashion magazine, Elle.

Yes, I had just delivered my baby, and she was peacefully sleeping in a tiny crib next to me. As I was flipping through the shiny pages a sudden thought occurred to me: what will it be like, our world, in 20, or 30, or 40 years?

Will the pollution be decreased? Will poverty throughout the world be defeated? Will … Read more...

Even if this is not a food blog, I wanted to share a random recipe of an exquisite breakfast cake that my mum used to bake for me ¬†very often (let’s say, always!), and that nowadays is never missing in my kitchen for Minnie!

This is a very simple yet yummy recipe that everyone in the family, and especially children, can enjoy for breakfast … or in any other moment of the day! It’s kind of a loaf cake, very popular in Italy, which we call with an English name: plumcake (no plums involved, though!).

My Minnie has already turned … Read more...
