One of the best parts of being a girl mom is dressing up your daughters in adorable outfits. And when I find a matching outfit that is just as cute on me as it is on them, I always feel like I’ve hit the jackpot. So today, I’m sharing a few of my favourite places to shop for matching mommy and me outfits.
When visiting a new city, figuring out where exactly to stay is one of the most important questions. When visiting Paris, choosing a hotel in the right neighbourhood should definitely be a priority. The first time I traveled to Paris, we stayed at an Air BNB in the 12th arrondissement and regretted it deeply. While the neighbourhood itself was lively and full of local flavour, it was located far from most of the sights we had planned to see in the city. In the end, I felt like we waisted much of our trip in the underground subway tubes instead of sightseeing.
On our most recent trip to Paris, we knew we didn’t want to make the same mistake we did the fist time. This time we decided to stay at the Trinite Hausman in the Pigalle neighbourhood. Although we originally thought we wanted to stay in the more luxurious 8th arrondissement, we absolutely loved staying in 9th. There were so many wonderful bakeries and restaurants in the area that we frequented daily during our trip and getting around the city from our hotel was quick and easy.
Today, I wanted to share my favourite neighbourhoods in Paris and my recommendations on where to stay during your next trip to Paris.
A huge trend for this summer is smocked fabric. From dresses to swimsuits, this sewing technique is showing up in a big way. Smocking adds texture and dimension to clothing while giving basic fabrics a fresh twist. I am personally loving all the smocked detailing on clothing this season. Because smocked fabric is stretchy, it is also the perfect choice for maternity or postpartum garments.
Hello darlings, today I wanted to share my tips for hosting a traditional British afternoon tea. Now I know depending on where you live it may not be possible to host small get togethers because of covid restrictions so make sure to bookmark or pin this post for when gatherings are once again allowed in your area. These photos were actually taken pre-pandemic, when I hosted a few girlfriends for a tea party celebrating my 30th birthday. To be honest, it’s one of many blog posts that I put on hold sharing since the timing never seemed to feel right while in the midst of a pandemic. But now that we are over a year into the covid-19 disaster I’m ready to keep sharing the content I love to create. Anyways, back to afternoon tea…
Afternoon tea is one of my favourite meals to serve for guests. Dainty sandwiches and desserts are so aesthetically pleasing and of course yummy as well. There is something about a cup tea, that makes you want to sit and linger, promoting wonderful conversations around the table. But how do you host an afternoon tea, and what should you serve? I’m breaking it all down in todays post!
