Simple Things in Life

Happiness is a state of mind, a choice and a way of living.
Our way of thinking has a positive or negative impact on how happy we are and how we feel. 
I don't know about you, but simple things in life make me happy. Being grateful for the little things is a great way to practise the first steps towards happier you because Happiness Lies Within You.

For example:  

Sunny days ...
I absolutely love sunny days. Sunny days make me feel good, I feel more energetic and happier. The warmer weather and longer days are one of my favorite parts of the Spring. 

Wearing Sunglasses ...
It's important to protect your eyes from the sun's UV rays. They are also a great fashion accessory. They make you look stylish and they make you feel grate. Spring and sunglasses just go together.

A hug ...  
Cuddles, cuddles, cuddles, how great they feel? :-))) 

Seeing my little boy playing and laughing ... 
There's nothing more satisfying than seeing how my son see the magic in the simplest things.
Seeing my boy happy is one of the best feelings in the world.
Awww, the joy of being a mum. 

Getting flowers ...
I like to have flowers in the house. They bright up our living room, they add a color to the place, bring the comfort and happiness. Tulips are my favorite. I love the way they feel, smell and the way they look.

A little walk outside...
It's amazing how the weather can affect our mood and how we feel.
Sometimes all we need to feel better is a simple walk in the woods (park).  

Positive thinking ...
Thinking and feeling positive attracts positive situations. As the law of attraction says, you will attract whatever you focus your attention and energy on. Like a magnet we are always attracting energy. 
Change the way you think, change the way you talk, say only positive words.  

A nice cup of coffee early in the morning ...
I love coffee ;-)
A morning coffee is my favorite way of starting the day. I love how it taste, smell and how it wakes me up. 
Hmmm coffee!!! 

Yummy Big Breakfast ... 
Because breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Eating healthy breakfast can help you lose weight and maintain your weight loss.

An outdoor lunch ... 
Because we all deserve to be spoiled once in a while.

Relax and quiet at the end of a busy day ...
Do you sometimes sit down and do absolutely nothing?
After a hard day at work it feels great to pause fo a little bit and take your mind of what's going on.
Reading your favorite book while drinking a cup of hot chocolate or taking a nap in the afternoon feels great, enhance positive emotions and bring happy thoughts.

Have a wonderful and relaxing week everyone.

Hello September

It's a beginning of a new month and the best time to start over. It's a time of renewal.
I love summer and I'm gonna miss long, hot days full of sunshine, wearing light clothes (especially dresses and skirts). 
We spent this summer outside, going for a long walks, having summer picnics in the park or sitting on our terrace sipping delicious homemade cocktails. What better way to enjoy summer than on a terrace to be surrounded with your family and friends.
August symbolized summer, fun, picnics, sea, relax, short nights, holidays.

But September it's just as amazing and unique.
The falling leaves, golden mornings, smell of pumpkin spice latte (already avaliable in Starbucks), walk in the woods wrapped up in your cardigan and oversized scarf. Autumn clothes are full of earthy colors and I love it.
To me there is something magical about this month. Everything starts to slow down.
It's also perfect time to decorate your home for fall. From adding lots of candles with inviting scents to switching your pillows in the living room.
Enjoy your September everyone!

Happiness Boutique Statement Necklace

Happy Spring everyone, 
This post is from my other blog The Wonderful Life as a Mum :-)

... ...
Finally it's getting warmer outside. I'm really excited to spend more days on the sun.  
The warmer weather and longer days are my favorite parts of the Spring.

Today I would like to show you a beautiful statement necklace from Happiness Boutique. They contacted me to try their jewelry and share my opinion. Well, nothing like a nice piece of statement jewelry to make you feel confident, am I right?  
Happiness Boutique has a lot of lovely necklaces, earrings, bracelets and we all know that a little sparkle bring life to any outfit. 
I'm a jewelry girl. I love wearing them, because the right accessories can be a reflection of your style spirit.

What I like about Happiness Boutique ?

1. Their style is timeless classic with a charming vintage touch. 
2. Their products are made of high quality material. 
3. They have a cute packaging, my necklace came in a lovely white box with the brand logo.
4. They offer worldwide free shipping without a minimum purchase. 
5. They have an awesome reward program and hosting many giveaways. 

Mummy tips:

- Rather than choosing the most popular fashion jewelry, choose necklaces (bracelets, etc) with unique and interesting details. Something that represents you, that carries meaning.

- As it goes by saying, sometimes less is more.

- Did you know? Plastic drinking straws are perfect to help you pack your necklaces. By inserting half of the necklace into the straw, you avoid them from getting tangled. :-)

Close to my Due Date

Wow, the time passes so quickly. 
My due date is coming up faster than I thought.

I love being pregnant and I'm gonna miss kicks in my belly, I love the feeling so much :-)
I'm starting to be excited and a bit scared at the same time.
I know it is normal for a first time mum, I'm trying to be confident, positive, but still there are moments I get nervous. 
It's part anticipation and fear of the unknown. Sometimes it feels as if the world is spinning around.
My head is full with all kind of thoughts ... is everything ready, did I forget anything, etc.
But, I'm happy, I'm finally going to meet my little baby. I'm trying to embrace the whole process, at the end this is how we all got here.


I came across these inspirational quotes and decided to share them with you:

''When you change the way you view birth, the way you birth will change.''
~Marie Mongan, Hypnobirthing~

''Nothing on life is to be feared. It is only to be understood.''
~Marie Curie~

''Rain, after all is only rain, it is not bad weather. So also, pain is only pain, unless we resist it, then it becomes torment.''
~The I Ching~

Firmoo Sunglasses Review

Sunglasses are a must have summer accessory. 
Not only do sunglasses serve a very practical purpose, but they can really pull together your summer style. Plus, we all know that too much sun can increase the number of wrinkles under your eyes. It is a known fact that sunlight is a cause of premature aging.
Having a signature pair of shades can easily pull together even the simplest outfit.  
You don't have to go for expensive, but it's important to look for the UV protection.

A few weeks ago I received another beautiful sunglasses from Firmoo.com and once again I'm very pleased with the quality. I already mentioned in my previous post Firmoo.com is the world most popular online store for eyewear. They cater for those who needs prescription lenses and those who dont. Firmoo has such a wide variety of stylish glasses for an affordable price and hundreds of classic or fashion style frames. On the Daily New page, you can find the newest frames which are updated every day. You can search by frame shape, upload your photo and do a virtual try on.

That's why I was very happy to collaborate with them on my blog again and write my review.
The glasses I've choosen are in a great condition, very comfortable and great quality.
I also love the complimentary case.
Prescription glasses and sunglasses from Firmoo are very affordable and there are a lot of styles to choose from. 
I highly recommend Firmoo, they are doing a wonderful job of providing oustanding customer service.

Get the latest fashion trends and must have glasses.
Because summer and sunglasses just go together :-)

Putting on a new pair of glasses or sunglasses is a simple way to completely transform your look - just like a new hairstyle.

Late nights, bikinis, shorts, flip flops, sunglasses, sunshine, loud music, the list go on ... Summer!

Pregnancy is an amazing journey

Pregnancy is an amazing journey, the most magical adventure you can experience. Every day brings something new, new feelings, excitement, love you never knew you had inside you.
I love every moment of being pregnant and experiencing everything that comes with it. 
To me, the feeling of carrying a little soul inside me is simply magnificent.

Have a lovely week everyone!

Maternity Maxi Skirt from Seraphine

Hello everyone :-)
I can't believe we are already in July. It feels like last week I was in Etretat and it was actually more than a month ago.
Situated on the Normandy coast, Etretat is famous for it's scenery around the town, in particular its white cliffs. 
It's a magical place.
It was a great weekend, just a bit windy, but sunny and pleasant. 
I was happy wearing my lovely light blue maternity maxi skirt from Seraphine. I have to admit I'm loving maternity clothes. 
My favorite are dresses and skirts. 
I like feeling trendy and don't see why being pregnant should stop that. Seraphine offers comfortable and chic options for pregnancy.
Everything I picked out fits just right, plus their clothes really are so comfortable and soft.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
