Louis Moinet Memoris watch

This month was full of birthdays, starting with my babygirl’s first birthday, and my hobby’s 34th the day after! And every year, I struggle to find him a gift that will rock his world, he is very picky especially when it comes to his own style, and well honestly I still haven’t found him that perfect gift, but I’d like to think that the surprise trip I planned to Ibiza was also his birthday gift! So while researching online, I found this beautiful Louis Monet Memoris watch, which is the first chronograph watch in history. Unfortunately it isn’t a watch I can afford (not yet, one has got to keep dreaming), but knowing him and how he loves watches and their complex designs, I knew he would absolutely fall in love with, and I was right as I showed him videos and photos of the watch, he fell head over heels with it, and so it might not be his 34h birthday gift but I am keeping it in the back of my head as possibly a gift for one his near future birthdays (maybe on his 40th ?). This unique and timeless watch truly stands out and says I love you in so many ways, and I thought it only appropriate to share it with all of you in case one of your loved ones birthday is coming up, or an anniversary, the holidays are just around the corner, with the hopes that this will help you find and pick that perfect gift for him.Memoris Louis Moinet

Gift ideas for Him

Today it hit me, next Saturday it’s Valentine’s Day! Yes I know you were all more aware of it, since we are being reminded of it every day everywhere we look, and I have been aware that it was almost February 14th, but with my baby girl I really forget to look at the date, and keep up with the days! My clock and time just runs around her feeding, changing and napping times (in between I manage to squeeze baby yoga time, baby music class, and of course story time;). But yes today I realised I need to find the right gift for Jeff, and I am sure just like me many of you need to find a gift for the man in your life! Here are some of my favourite selections for him, and throughout the week I will keep posting ideas and Pinning ideas on my Be My Valentine board! 

Rent The Runway

Monique Lhuiller gown When I realised New Years Eve was just a few days away and I had absolutely nothing in my closet that fit me ( I went from size 0 or 2 depending on the clothes to size 6), I knew shopping for a new dress was not worth it at the moment since I am planning to shed some pounds (hopefully sooner than later, but chocolate is my best friend at the moment), so I decided to get on Rent The Runway and find a dress (or two) to have as an option if we decided to attent a party or event (at the end we went to a house party, with all of our friends and their kids, there were kids in every corner, which was so much fun but also made me realise that this was the scene for the next few years). So my pick was this stunning J’adore Monique L’huillier gown, I knew that the shape, the fabric and of course the colours would hug my curves to perfection, and make me feel comfortable in my new body! To add the final touches I decided to style it with these vintage pearl earrings (my mom’s), and my Saint Laurent clutch. Hope you like this gorgeous gown, and if you are looking for a timeless look for any upcoming event do not hesitate, Rent The Runway has the perfect dress for you;)

Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and this year as every year it is about our amazing mother’s, but in a way I am already considering myself as a mother so it is that much more special to me! So I am sure you are all searching and researching and thinking of ways to surprise your moms, as well as your wives:) It can always be a little overwhelming finding the right gift for one of the most special person in our lives, which is why I am always on the look for sites or stores that offer us unique pieces, and a beautiful selection, but not overwhelming us with too many things! So when I found out about Uncommon Goods, I was truly excited, those of you who have been following me, by now you know how I love to support independent designers, and style my looks with unique pieces, and well simply find little gems that make me feel special, and that is exactly what you can find at Uncommon Goods.

They are based in Brooklyn, and their essence is all about giving designers a platform for creativity, and connecting those artists with us:) Most of their products are hand made here in the US, and their mission is to be environmentally friendly in everything from their own company to the materials used by the designers to create/handcraft their designs! So of course I had to get my hands on their Links of Love Necklace! And from this necklace I was inspired to create my Mother’s Day look, with this Raoul Primrose dress, and my Zara heels (who have been proven to be the most comfy heels in my pregnancy:)! Hope you like this look;)
