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 !

Hello Girls , like I promised yesterday here is some ideas what to get for Christmas for your special people and a very easy gifts wrapping ideas !
some ideas what to get for Christmas - luxurious lipstick , hair care products , candles , nail polishes , booknatural raffia ,simple postage paper , ink and stamp (if you don't have any try eBay ) , dried flowers ( I got mine from Garden centre ) , little Christmas decorations ! Remember this is only an idea , you can use and recycle whatever you have at home and in your scrap box ! I am not a fan of plastic fantastic wrapping paper and ribbons , this is very cheap and original idea achieved in minutes , yes , that's how easy it is ! I absolutely love natural raffia ribbon , what an amazing material to work with !
Start with wrapping the present in the paper , then wrap around raffia ribbon and attach anything you like to the present , this time all my materials didn't needed any glue or silikon hot glue , but You might need some glue it depends from materials you will use ! At the end I decided to use some stamps on one of the presents , its so simple and looks great !

Here you can see my idea of storage , I turned totally unused space into nice storage ( before and after picture see above ) , I cant understand why I didn't do that before !!! I got baskets from tk maxx and average price for one basket is £ 12 , except 2 baskets for £ 20 ! I made little lavander love hearts with attached buttons ! I did the same in my daughters room , I stored some of her school work and drawings in the baskets and laid some teddy's on top !
ideas for presents :)

Hello Darlings ! Even thought it's only November but I am already looking forward to the Christmas , I really do think it's the most beautiful time in these dark months , and let me just say no , its not about the presents and all the craziness around the shops , in fact , that is the part I don't enjoy , its about the beautiful Family feel while waiting for Christmas ! Slowly but shortly I am already making some personal gifts and tonight I started with little love heart pillows filled with aromatic Lavender for wardrobe hangers ! In the near future I will show you my little makeover for my Daughters room and of course also wardrobe organisation ! White kids hangers from here
Also I would recommend do all the crafts with your children , yes it might be messy :) but every little girl needs to know how to use a needle and cotton , right !
My daughter is back to school tomorrow after 2 weeks off so keep tuned a lot of Christmas gift ideas and wrapping is coming !
