 Ready on the wall :)
I had some old plastic picture frame with no use so I decided to paint it in Annie Sloan paint and make it usable !

perfume bottle diy with flowers


 I removed metal seal from Chanel bottle with kitchen knife and it was quite easy ( see pictures ) most important is to open bottom bit and then it comes off easy !
It was a different story with Signorina bottle , oh , it was a mission , the metal seal was from different type of metal , very hard with no chances to bend it like Chanel seal , so I used nail clippers to somehow remove the seal ! That took time but I did it !
I hope you liked my little tutorial and will try to do it as well , on that note if you do please share it on Instragram and feel free to tag me so I can see your beautiful  DIY :)

After a very long I can finally sit down and write a few lines here :) Both of my babies are asleep by now so I will show you a quick and easy tutorial how to reuse / recycle a pretty perfume bottles ! I think clear glass bottles are the best , they simply look the best ! I had an empty Chanel bottle and recently finished Signorina bottle which I really liked because of the little bow , well , bottle was better then the actual perfume :) I will not write a lot , as you can see in the pictures above its nothing difficult just takes a bit of patience !
Enjoy Birds singing outside , it's spring :) so Beautiful !

Kids Birthday Party Details












Yesterday my daughter Isabella turned 7 , I really can't believe where the time has gone , it feels like yesterday when she was born and I held her in my arms  , now she is 7 , time is so precious ..
I had a little partyl for family only yesterday  but of course there will be another party with school friends in 2 weeks time , at the moment we are very excited about Isabella's first ballet examination so all the free time is spent for dancing , our weekends are so busy , Saturday mornings we have swimming lessons and ballet afterwards ..and I have a newborn to look after also ..sometimes I really don't know how I manage everything !
But let's I will tell you about my party accessories !
I really wanted to create something Beautiful avoiding any supermarket stuff with plastic sheets of " Happy Birthday " , already in advance I ordered Honeycomb balls ( it's not that easy to get them and they are not cheap , I got them from Ebay ) , little milk bottles ( local Garden Centre ) , I used round stickers for wall decoration , also I made little cupcake decorations and flower shaped labels on the milk bottles ! I had few more ideas but just didn't had time for everything ! One of the ideas was favour boxes with children names on them , but I made a mistake by ordering individual stamps , I was expecting delivery already a week ago and then I decided to contact the seller :) surprise surprise ! I didn't notice that my seller is from China he he , so no stamps for a while ! Anyway , I will have another post for a girly party with more detailed post in about 2 weeks time !
Are you missing my outfit posts ( just wondering ) ?

it's a Girl ♥







hello Darlings , some of you already know that I am a mama for the second time around , we welcomed to the world  our baby girl Allessandra on 4th of February ,  after 12 long hours of labour I was rushed to emergency C section which wasn't planned at all , but most  importantly that everything is fine now , more about this experience in some of my future posts , I never knew that C section can be so painful afterwards ( so many woman  choosing it by choice !!!) , I never experienced so much pain just even to get out of the bed ! Now I am enjoying time with my little baby girl and between breastfeeding , sleepless nights and nappies I have a lot of posts planned in the near future - motherhood , fitness and creativity !

Recycling time - candle holders !



Luxurious candles are my weakness , the beautiful scent sometimes is the only thing you need to relax , and when the soft wax is melted in the air why not to recycle and make candle holders usable !
Great way to update your interior !
What do you think ?

home made Christmas gifts

This time a great idea for Christmas gift - home baked cookies ! I baked traditional Latvian Christmas cookies Piparkukas ( black pepper cookies ) but you can bake anything you like !

 I decorated the jars with simple paper , ribbon , raffia and few  berries ! Also I customised a little does which you can use as a decoration for Christmas tree or maybe for table decorations , with name tags on or just like a little favours for your guests ! ( I am preparing a separate post about table decoration ideas for Christmas )


 Also I made  a simple paper bags filled with cookies !

Enjoy your weekend girls ! :)
