Quote:  Being well dressed or having your home well decorated is a choice.

I admire this 93 year old lady, she is the proof that style doesn´t age. 
Good advise: She prefers to have one simple black dress and a lot of accessories, that way you can create many different outfits.

Last months were a roller coaster ride. I am so so in love with my two little boys, but they are a handfull! There was basically no time for mommy and no time for blogging.
I am very happy that we hired help. We have a sweet girl that loves my boys almost as much as I do and she knows how to educate them.
Slowly I am trying to become my old self again. I gained a lot of weight during my second pregnancy and I decided that I wanted to loose that during these months. I have help from a doctor that monitors my weight, gives me food advise and gives me mesotherapie. I also get lasertreatment to try to diminish my stretchmarks and get sclerosetherapie to get rid of little veins on my both legs. I go to Zumba classes with 3 girlfiends. The Zumba classes are highly addictive, the first time I laughed so hard, I am hooked.
So now you know my beauty routine, hopefully in a few months I can show you some results.
Another exciting fact is that we might move to a bigger apartment (with a balcony) or house (with a garden). Tomorrow we have our first house tour. We are looking in to something that needs to be reformed. A lot of work, yes but also the only way to get a house to your needs and taste.
I just recently discovered the hippy side in me, which made total sense. I love the hippy chic lifestyle, I will add more of those details to my life and home.

Baby Oliver has arrived!

Just a short note that this Beau Baby has arrived! Introducing Oliver.
Oliver was born on december the 29th 2013 weighting 4.450 kg and measured 51 cm.
To me it was a good and fast delivery. The only bad thing is that Oliver got his collar bone broken during the delivery, as he was a big baby, this sometimes happens they explained me at the hospital. We have to take care we don´t hurt him holding him. After 2 or 3 months it will be healed.
  I took my time to recuperate and enjoy this baby.
 Matteo treats him well with kisses and patting, but we do notice a bit of jalousy when he sees us with the baby in our arms. Talk to you soon, LOVE CHANTAL

A purchase that Kelly Wearstler would approve of

Dearest all, I am almost due to deliver the baby, and my hormones are going nuts.
I have to organize the whole house and I also went to an antique market yesterday and purchased this marble roman foot. I am so so happy with it. I think this is a purchase that Kelly Wearstler (my decor godess) would approve of.
It is now on my coffee table and it matches my roman painting behind the sofa.

an image of Kelly Wearstlers book Hue, a stone foot on a table.
I am soooo happy to have found a moment to post again. Oh my I missed it.
love xxx

How I love my new best friend, I recently purchased a Clarisonic mia 2, just as a present for myself, and I was amazed how clean my face is after using it. It even diminished a frown line I had on my forehead! I placed it on a beautiful shell that was a present from my mom. It comes in handy to keep my Clarisonic clean. Best buy of the year. xoxo
