If you have a daughter and she's not taking dancing lessons yet you might want to reconsider that after seeing the "Girls on Tiptoes" dance wear. What I love the most about their options is that they're not the classic ones we're used to seeing. They're a bit more modern. That's probably because the brand was created by 3 mothers from Poland. Yes! Once again the nordic countries are way ahead in coolness!
DIY FLORAL CROWN
If there's something that has taken over Pinterest (besides pictures with pineapples) are floral crowns! Last week I had the pleasure of attending a "DIY floral workshop" organized by "The creatives Loft". They taught me how to make my own crown and is amazingly easy so I thought it might be a good idea to show you how to do it for you or your little girls!
What you need:
- Floral wire. You can get it here.
- Floral tape. We used this one.
- Flowers (real or fake) But I do prefer real!
1. Grab the floral wire and put it on your head to mesure the size. Add a couple of inches to create a little handle on both sides. If you want the wire to be thicker and stronger, you can reinforce it with another layer.
2. Once the wire is ready. Select the kind of greenery you want. And cut the flowers, leaving a couple of inches. The greenery is going to be the base of the crown. So start with a leaf and fix it to the crown with the tape. Do not cut the tape when you are done. Then start adding the flowers and fixing them with the tape.
Keep adding greenery and flowers until the whole crown is done! And finally, tie the two handles with a pretty lace.

So, apparently I'm one of the few people who, besides pinning, actually goes out of her way and tries to make everything I see on Pinterest. Especially desserts! This weekend, I was looking for some recipes, and I found Sandra Mangas and her blog La Receta de la Felicidad. She has the cutest recipes for kids’ parties, and I loved her pictures. Everything is so well explained, so even if you are not a super cooking pro, you won't have any problem making most of her recipes. The best part is that it’s not just about the baking. The presentation is a big part of her blog, and to tell you the truth, that's what I loved the most. I'm a big fan of food styling, and if you are too, you'll find great decoration and presentation ideas on this blog.
Black & White Nursery
Who said nurseries have to be pink or blue? If you are a fan of a more nordic style you'll love this shop as much as I do. "En las nubes" is the label of a girl from Spain, and in her shop you'll find simple and stylish clothes and decor for baby's room. She uses a lot of graphics and mainly black, white or grey. Combining these elements with wood adds some warmth to the look. If you still want to add a little color, you can always give the room a little pink touch with the paper rabbits I showed you some months ago. Check them out here.
Boho Chic Summer
I'm back! Sorry it took me a while to write a new post! I've been super busy but now that summer is almost here I'm starting to see some of the kids outfits out there... and let me tell you something, summer is not all about a pair of shorts and a t-shirt!
Like every year, I'm a big fan of the Boho Chic look. And this year it's trendier than ever. So, instead of buying the same denim shorts for your girl, try some ethnic prints. Add a scarf, a necklace and a hat! Massimo Duti and Mango for kids have nailed it this season. So check their lookbook for more inspiration. Their dresses collection is, as always, very classy.
Of course, stripes are back like every summer. They are casual but they also have that something
that makes every look classy and elegant. Combine them with a solid color piece (I love combining stripes with red) and a pair of sandals.
Valentine's Day left us with a lot of ideas, crafts and DIYs. And personally, it left me with an amazing discovery, "La Maison de Loulou". Believe me, if you visit that blog you'll most likely stop whatever you are doing and start crafting! It has the cutest ideas! I can't wait to do some of the DIY projects I've seen there (stay tunned!) The color palettes, the pictures, the displays... I love everything about this blog!
For example this DIY. I know it's late for a love arrow... but hey, who said you can't give love arrows any day of the year?
And what about this rabbit headband? Is the easiest thing ever and is super cute! It's a simple idea for a crafty afternoon or as a goodie for a kids party!
This idea is one of my faves. The chalkboard cats and the speech bubbles. Is a cool way of leaving notes in your kids rooms. And you can do the shapes you want. I'm totally gonna give this a try. It will make a great gift for some of my favorite little ones!
I can't wait to see more stuff from La Maison de Loulou! Another great source for crafts is Mr. Printables. If you want to spend time with your kids doing crafts, this is the place you need to visit first. You'll find hundreds of cool templates. The rest is a piece of cake!
I know... I'm late for Christmas! But think about all the kids birthdays you have this year! During these Holidays I found a lot of gift wrapping inspiration. My favorite was the one from Mr.Printables "The animal gift wrapping". As you can see it's the easiest thing ever! All you need is white paper and a pen. And believe me, you don't need drawing skills!
You can do any animal you can think about! I had the idea of using ribbon to make ears and tails. And stacking them is very cool!
