When I started with Instagram some time ago, I didn't really know how Insta was working and started to follow, along with my contacts, well known influencers / bloggers.
However I soon noticed that a few things were disturbing me - I don't know why but I was under the impression there was too much negativity.
I didn't feel inspired or happy from these posts...
As part of the bachelorette party I attended in Paris recently, we had a floral head wreath workshop.
It was loads of fun and...pretty easy to do!
So if you are heading to a summer party, wedding or even a midsummer party in Sweden, here is some inspiration for your headdress...
We are so lucky. And grateful. And blessed.
After some unsuccessful attempts, we received the incredible news that we soon - if all goes well - would be allowed to become parents once more :)
I still can't believe it.
It sounds so surreal.
And I must say the way there was a little rockier than with Number 1...
As Baby Lifestylette was fighting off a pretty bad virus last week, I managed to let her childcare know at 10am where the caretakers had probably already jumped to the obvious conclusion...
Embarrassed that I had forgotten, I reflected on the many 'new learnings' and items I have now integrated in our daily lives over the past months....
Here are the 10 things I have learned in 10 weeks of childcare:
We wanted to finally build (and "pimp") the play kitchen that Baby Lifestylette got for Christmas this week end - I was already seeing everything going wrong and how I could share a do's and --especially -- don'ts...
But then came the disgusting virus that Baby Lifestylette has been fighting off since Friday - and hence myself since Saturday - and instead of a fun family week-end, we spent lots of couch time with tea, hot chocolate and fluffy blankets.
And LFSTYLT husband and I broke our
About the same time I experienced Lifestylette blog being claimed by some utter stranger, I somehow came across platforms where you can gossip about other blogs and bloggers.
Curious as I am – and the eternal gossiper & rambler with my girlfriends - I soon became fascinated by this…
But what kind of Pandora’s box was hereby opened!!!
The internet and just about everyone was asking me: are you planning on Black Friday? Did you get your codes? What did you shop? (And don’t get me even started on Cyber Monday!)
This is pretty new for me: I had heard about the big Black Friday sales in the US; seen some videos of people going crazy and basically the decadence of human beings becoming animals fighting over “stuff”.
Weeks ago, I was fetching the injection I needed for one of our (unsuccessful) attempts for a potential number 2 and I was asked if I wanted the brand-name product or a generic one.
Answering that I had been suffering from headaches with the other hormones already, I asked to please have the original stuff. I have no clue about any of this and did not want to risk anything.
But then what do you do at home all day??? And is that ok for you?
I have heard this sentence so often this year during my maternity leave and most of the time it just made me laugh so much!
Not only am I amused by the image that the people asking have of the “stay-at-home” mom, but also I have never seen it as a burden!
Yes! We know, summer is over and it is the season of cold and rain and flu…BUT for lots – autumn & winter is the season of romantic proposals…and with them engagement parties!!
The first party LFSTYLT husband and I attended, we weren’t yet engaged.
We were asking ourselves: how does this work? Should we bring a gift? After all, they “just” want to share their engagement “officially” and again “officially” exchange ring and watch.
It is a difficult and delicate question.
