We first learned about Studio Mucci when we were looking for some beautiful party supplies for one of our editorials in print issue 2 and came across their gorgeous pinatas. Ever since we have not gotten enough of their tassel garlands and everything else they have to offer! Needing something amazing for your holiday or New Years Eve party? Try their golden gray garland or their platinum peach garland to give your party that perfect amount of sparkle!
Studio Mucci is based on the idea that they can bring a dream-like whimsey into the every-day. Joy, excitement and inspiration of life! We love it and so will you!

We just love this time of the year! I really can’t get enough of all the beautiful colors and fun things to do during this season. But the leaves are almost off the trees and the temperature is decreasing. We really have to enjoy the last weeks of Autumn since Winter is on its way. We have done so much fun things, like playing in the leaves, painting leaves and nice walks in the woods and parcs.
I’m really going to miss Autumn! How about you?
wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving of full bellies and full hearts.

hi there -it ‘s christina from neutral hue. i wanted to share a little shoot of my daughter mila’s first [real ] halloween. i wanted her costume to be home-made, but i don’t know how to sew. this option popped into my head inspired by another shoot i was styling up. she is going to be a little indian, + with all her hair, what else could you possibly think of? i simply folded over a piece of felt, cut a hole for her head, fringed the sleeves, bottom + neckline , and there you have it. i braided a belt + head band, attached some feathers + you have some fun accessories. i like the real look of dress up, and it not being perfectly perfect- what do you think?

I finally had enough strength to go upstairs and show Cruz his nursery. It’s a fun mix of colors, vintage and modern things I love and of coarse gifts from people that love Cruz as much as we do! We will have more pictures in Print 3 coming out soon!
When Cruz isn’t chilling with mama he is usually hanging out in his big brother’s room! Details of this room will be in print 3 also!
As you can imagine it has been pretty busy around my house with the new addition. I am enjoying the little things with this one. Looking at every crease on his skin as he’s feeding, enjoying the smell of his skin and listening to every little
sound he makes. Babies are magical!
Cruz was born September 12 and was a little thing! 6 pounds 4 ounces of love! Check out our instagram for more images
Our little babiekin loves when we are reading books together. Gabriel never sits still for a second, but when it’s reading time he can sit still longer than a half an hour. Reading books is really a daily activity in our home. We have regular times to read, especially before naps and bedtime. This all started when Gabriel was only 6 months old. My older sister (she’s a teacher) told me that reading books is one of the best ways to learn a language. In combination with the wish to create a bedtime routine for Gabriel, we started reading books together.
But the most important thing is that we always having so much fun when we read books together. So we created his own little “library” in his room on his own bookshelf. We have a wide variety of books and we let Gabriel participate as much as possible. He picks his own books he wants to read, we let him to finish the sentence, read the pictures etc.
Is reading books a daily activity in your home too?
Good bye summer, hello autumn! Fall is coming here, I can’t believe this is just happening. I know it is September already, but less than two weeks ago it was 30 degrees celcius and we went to the beach. It’s raining cats and dogs for days now, the weather is getting cooler and the leaves begin to drop off the trees.
But today there will be some sun. Yay! So we decided to put our rain boots on, Gabriel not me, and take our little babiekin for a nice walk in the woods to collect some beautiful leaves. And during our walk we teach Gabriel all kinds of things about nature and fall.
Beside summer, fall is one of our favorite season of the year! I love the beautiful colors of this season, the pumpkins and fun family things to do.
What is your favorite season of the year?
