The little things

Thank you for your well wishes of our pregnancy, for not turning this blog into a babyblog, I will post sometimes a few things about babystuff.
Today I wanted to share some little things that made my day.
my new gold chain and leather bracelet from Massimo Dutti, wich is my new arm candy love.

New Iphone cover, my Iphone was getting severely scratched.
Yesterday I saw this pretty and simple black Iphonecover and it turned out to
 cost only 2 euros. It made me happy, functionality and price wise.

I bought an Ikea frame for the pretty portrait of my friend Masha.
She went to live in Mexico, where this picture was taken also.
When I see her happy picture, it makes me smile.

This gold glitter jacket from Zara, that will come out handy for my growing belly.
I do want to dress up nicely and try to take good care.

Back again...we have an anouncement

Dear all, life is full of surprises, especially for me 15 weeks ago, i happily found out that I was pregnant!
We told our closest relatives in the beginning, but now that we passed the 3 months we can say it out loud finally!
Maybe you have noticed that sometimes i was feeling a bit sick and didn´t blog that day, well now you know why. I started feeling better since a week, the nauseas are disapearing and I am full with energy.
I am happy to read many other bloggers have babies, children or are pregnant themselves and of course I am interested to know about their experiences and advises.

Here is a little image of the baby in my belly.

We still don´t know yet is it´s a boy or a girl, but I can tell you for sure I am looking forward to decorate the nursery!

What to do when you only can afford one roll of gorgeous wallpaper? Well get it if it makes you happy, I will show you some examples what you can do with only one roll.
If you have two little nooks like these, they come to life with such a colorful and fun wallpaper.

 What about these 2 different staircases? I think they add that extra little bit of fun
thanks to these graphic wallpapers.
By aplying your favorite wallpaper to the wall where you have your vanity table, makes it clear that this space is totally yours!

This kidsroom, the wallpaper makes the difference.

This is one of my favorite idea´s, it´s done by Eddie Ross wich I admire.

If you have some more wallpaper, but still not enough to cover the whole livingroom, I
advise you to add it to the toilet or second bathroom.
It´s still a small space, but it makes so nice.

We have spend our last days in Ibiza, and o we are fond of this Island. All our friends recomended not to go in August, cause there are too many visitors, but all I can say that we have had a great time and we feel totally relaxed.

Beach Cala salada

How to attact conversations with strangers on the street... dress like a tourist, buy and drink a fresh coconut, garantee for sure.

The city has great ambiance at night.

Shopping at the hippy market

Sluiz store Ibiza

We heard about this amazing all in one store called Sluiz. wich is near a lovely village of Santa Gertrudis.

Sluiz offers home goods and decoration, presents, a clothing boutique, a bar and dining area and more... it was quite an experience to discover such an original store on Ibiza.

They had a wide range of the missoni home collection that I was eying on...

They have so many great items as morrocan poufs, stools and benches, hippy ibiza pillows, candels.... it's difficult to leave this store empty handed.
I especially love the woven straw bags, that you see all over Ibiza.

The presentation of their collection was simple and industrial but o so original.
They had these huge industrial jerrycans hanging from the ceiling.

Their clothes boutique offers great clothes for men and woman.

Almost everything is for sale, it's nice wandering their garden and checking out their garden furniture.

A relaxing moment in the garden with another fresh fruit juice and VTwonen decorating magazine.

Please visit Sluiz on your trip to Ibiza:

update Ibiza

Yesterday was a lovely long day we went to Cala aguas blancas, located on the northeast coast of the Island.

At the beginning of the beach was a professional masagist called Renate, she gave me a great neck, head and shoulder massage. It was a great experience to be right on the beach, hearing the waves break.

After the beach, we took a shower and decided to explore Ibiza center. I took an extra dose of vitamins by ordering a carrot and celery juice at Hostal Parque.

Beau boyfried is always my walking guide, as he plans the way to explore the city.

Ibiza does remind us a bit to the south of France where beau boyfriend and I met almost 9 years ago.

Hope this little update gives you an idea how our vacation is going so far, soon I'll be back home and blog about the wonderfull world called Decoration.
More Ibiza pictures to be continued.
