Kimono Love 1

"The kimono (着物?, きもの)[1] is a Japanese traditional garment. The word "kimono", which actually means a "thing to wear" (ki "wear" and mono "thing"),[2] has come to denote these full-length robes. (...) The kimono is always used in important festival or formal moments, it is the representative of polite and a very formal clothing." Source: Wikipedia

Do you have a favourite trend for summer 2017?

Mine is definitely the kimono. 


May it be long or short, patterned or not I love it anyway. And in contrary to its original  use, I recommend it for any occasion, not only for formal ones.

How about you?


Are they yay or nay for you?


Thanks for stopping by.

Dream Closet


Hello Everyone!

For today I brought you a mood board as inspiration.
Everybody has dreams they would love to have fulfilled. Those who have been following my blog for a longer time may know that my dream is a walk-in closet. Even though moving into the new house seems pretty far away I was really happy that I was introduced to the services of earnest which made me think of and start to plan my dream walk-in closet once again.

So here are the most essential pieces to my dream walk-in closet:

Dream Closet
I know that such a closet can be quite costy but the inner Carrie Bradshaw in us needs it bad. :)

So here are 4 tips to make it wonderful:

1., Use neutral colours: It is easier to make slight changes later on when you get bored with the design.

2., Buy strong hangers: May your closet look as wonderful as it can, you will not feel good if your hangers break every other day.

3., Get yourself the perfect mirror: It needs to be perfect quality, of course, and be big enough to see your whole outfit.

4., Lights: One of the most crucial things when getting ready. Without perfect lightning you might only find you do not like something about your look when getting out of the house. And noone likes such 'surprises'.

How about you? What would you do if you were granted  an extra $10,000 to your budget?
Your comments are highly appreciated.

5 Tips: What To Bring To The Hospital When Giving Birth


I would like to give you some tips about what to bring to the labour room. I hope you will find my tips helpful.

1., Water: Choose a bottle which is easy to open and does not have a big mouth. Believe me, even if it sounds ridiculous now, you will not have the energy to focus on drinking from a bottle with an "uncomfortable" bottle mouth. :)

2., Socks: It can be so cold in labour rooms. :(

3., Mineral water spray: I used one by Uriage but any label will do, I guess. Yes, sometimes you will feel cold, in other moments you will experience a heat wave. Use it for your face and arms, it will help a lot.

4.,  Dextrose: Giving birth is not easy, you will need some extra boost of energy.

5., Geranium muscatel oil: Put some drops on a hanky. It will help you to relax.

How about you? What did/would you bring?

Thanks for stopping by.

Giving Birth


First of all, sorry for not writing this post earlier. The main reason why I was hesiant to publish my birth story was that giving birth was not an elevating experience for me.
Many women say that this expeience was one of the most beautiful ones in their lives but, unfortunatly, I cannot relate.

As my pregnancy was quite easy with no morning sickness or other problems, I hoped that giving birth would also be "easy" for me. Of course , I knew that I will feel pain but did not know what to expect.

Firt of all, I gave birth 10 days after my due date. In the first 7 days after my due date I wasn't really worried or afraid. I did my househld chores, worked in the garden, etc. But after 7 days my doctor decided that I had to go to hospital to do some tests and I had to stay "for safety's sake". 

Well, I hated it. There were several ladies who I knew from my preggo yoga class whose due dates were 2-3 weeks later but came in and gave birth in a few hours. I felt envious (and thought I was a really bad person).

But after 2 days in hospital, I started to feel labour pain. I knew they were labour pain but as they did not come as regularly as in the "Big Book Of Childbirth", the doctors said that they were only predictive cramps. It went on for 22 hours like that but after 22  hours (no sleep) I went to one of the maternity nurses on due  and told her that I was sure that I would give birth soon and would not return to my room without a baby. Quite harsh, I know. :)

All in all, those 32 hours were really difficult and sometimes I felt like a failure that I cannot even present regular camps but when I saw my son for the first time I experienced such peace, grace and joy I had never experienced before.



I hope that my story will not scare you, ladies before your due dates. I hope it will help you to know that in the end everything will be ok and you will be as happy as never before.


Thanks for reading.
