You are more beautiful than you think!


This post is somewhat beside my regular posts, but when I saw this video, it moved me, and I really want to share it.

As a parent, I’m thinking differently about the world: how will my daughter’s life be? How will the world change as she grows up? Will my husband and I be able to teach her the values that we feel are important? My hopes and dreams are that she will be happy, well balanced, confident, strong, kind, and that she feels loved and beautiful!

Did you know that only 4 % of women see themselves as beautiful? We’re way too judgmental of ourselves! Look around you: do you think only 4 % of the women around you are beautiful? No! There’s beauty in everyone!

Let’s go into the weekend with a promise to ourselves: tell yourself your beautiful, at least once every day! And tell the people around you as well! do you like your eyes – accentuate them! Do you like your waist – show it off!

Happy weekend everyone!

Wall decals for your nursery


Right now we’re in the middle of selling our apartment. In late Summer, we’re moving to a new apartment.We’ve already started sending our thing to storage, so our apartment almost doesn’t feel like “home” anymore. Therefore, I’m dreaming about decoration our new home more than ever! Right now, it’s decoration the room of my little baby girl which is occupying my mind. I really want the perfect wall decal for her new room.

Today I’ll show you some of the wonderful finds I’ve done  – there’s just so much pretty decals!

The first three pictures are from My Wonderful Walls on Etsy – check it out!

I love the idea of trees in a nursery! It reminds me of life, nature, and movement! Also, it works for both a little prince and a princess!

 

I have a fascination for Peter Pan, and would love to use a Peter Pan wall decal. I was so inspired by a picture I found on Pinterest

I would love to try to make something similar!

Teacups and Tutus party


I earlier wrote a post about tea parties for adults, and this time I’m showing you the most adorable tea party for your little ones!

Oce again I’ve been inspired by The Hostess with the Mostess, and she featured a party made by The Pear – and it’s just every little girl’s dream come true!

I know I would have loved this party as a little girl – I loved to play ballerina!Which theme parties have you had for your little girl?

 

 

Purple and blue wedding inspiration


I’m a big fan of some sort of theme in a wedding – I fell it looks more “put together”. Using theme colours are a great way of doing this. The wedding I’ve found today, from Taylor Lord Photography, has the most beautiful colour combination of purples and blues – perhaps not the most common wedding colour, but it gives a sophisticated and elegant impression:
