Before and after

Yesss, I did it again! I found another pitiful nightstand on the street. It look very similar to the one I found last year, but it´s a but more damaged. You must have seen the looks of peoples faces when they saw me walk with the dirty old nightstand under my arm, many people don´t get it, but I see potential in things. A friend came up to me that he also saw me walking with an old nightstand and was wondering what I do with this crap!
Well, see next foto, I turn it in to this:

This is the one I have next to my bed and I am missing one for on the other side, hopefully the next one will look similar. Let me get you to the next before and after.

This is how I should look like every day in my office...

And this is the reality...many times I look like this, with a white coat on, hair pulled back and a colicky baby sleeping on my you know it, this is my Beau Lifestyle...

What we did last weekend...

Adding some pictures of our last weekend, I finally bought some candles for our candleholder, and I am very pleased with how it looks. The flowers are real orchids, I am so in luv with them.

The Peonies are back! They are my most favorite flowers. As a child I admired them in my parents yard, such nice memories!

Last Friday I mentioned we were going to the beach, It was Matteo´s first day ever on the beach and he absolutely loved it, we stayed in the shadow, underneath a parasol and applied sunscreen...I am very aware that the sun does no good to a Baby´s skin. The sound of the breaking waves are very soothing and he din´t stop smiling, wiggling, kicking his feet and brabeling, going to the beach was a success.

I spoiled myself this weekend...I got these earrings from an english jewelry designer Lucas Jack.
I have checked their website, and oh my, such nice things they have...

My gal Patricia and me we are making more bracelets for our brand Leonor designs, in this picture the friendship bracelet with rhinestones is the one we made and we have scored our first shop customer in Spain, and this weekend we made several new ones. Now that I have a little bit more time on my hands (besides already running a successful business and having baby Matteo) i will invest more time and love in to our handmade jewelry. Soon more to come...

We watched this movie, ´´the Help´´and I was quite impressed by it, I recomend everyone to go and see it. This is a quote from the movie that Aibileen said to babygirl, and I had to explain to mr Beau why she wasn´t speaking proper English. I will tell this to Matteo when he has an age that he will understand this. Every child should feel that they are kind, smart and important!

p.s. don´t forget to participate in the neon bracelet giveaway, there aren´t many comments yet, so the fact of you becoming the lucky one is very big!

They are made of gold colored chain and elastic neon cord, so it will hug your wrist.

The pictures don´t do them justice, the colors are more vibrant!

Last weekend

Hi guys how was your weekend? I had the joy that my parents came over to spend a long wekend with us, they really missed their grandson and had to see him. As they spend quality time together, I had some mommy free time to do girly things, and attended a Bobbie brown make up class with my friend Patricia.

Patricia said that we looked like 2 cougars, ggrawww....

Matteo loves his night time bath, it makes him sleep trough the night...yes you heard it...the whole night!
Next week he will be 3 months old.
I made some quinoha california rolls, it´s exactly the same as the normal californian rolls, just use quinoha instead of white rice. A healthy opion.

 This is how our bedroom wall looks at the moment...have you seen what we had on the wall before?
It was a vintage sunburst convex  mirror, very pretty, very spikey...and I had nightmares that that thing would fall on us during breastfeeding Matteo, so off came the sunburstmirror.
now it´s a boring empty wall, and i am looking for something to fill that space.

This is the before, what do you think I should hang above the bed? Any suggestions?

Beau Butterfly

I  really love the crochet butterfly “taxidermy” frame display, I saw it for the first time during our stay in france in easter holidays. It´s so adorable for any nursery. It´s from the NYC based brand Oeuf!

Digging the Spikes

For a while now i have been seeing the spikes everywhere, I especially am liking the gold toned ones on bracelets, clothes and shoes. I feel a new DIY proyect is coming up...on the otherhand I am probably not doing it, cause it´s not so babyfriendly...Matteo is turning 3 months soon, oh he is growing up so fast, I think he is getting his first tooth!

Platner love

Hi Babes and Boys, sorry for not posting yesterday was a bit snif, snif, had a terrible cold!
I just wanted to express my love for Platner! Especially love the dining table. If I had to redecorate my home, this table will be in it.

I am craving some spotted fabric upholstered chairs with pink piping, coral lamps, a white ceramic stool, colorful paintings and a gold piggy bank! This images comes from the new lonny magazine that i saw over at the decorista.
Have a nice weekend!

Frame it

How nice is this arrangement? I especially like the detail of the frame, it doesn´t matter if there isn´t enough wall for it to be hung, as you can see it still looks great.
