TobyTiger - Fun with Colors

When I found out that I would be having a baby girl I got super excited thinking of all the cute little outfits I would dress her in. My first shopping trip for her resulted in lots and lots of fluffy pink clothes - because, you know, it's the obvious choice for a girl and also, I love pink. But after filling Cherie's wardrobe with pink onesies, leggings, socks, cardis and beanies, I thought it would be a good idea to get her something more original. But... I had to realize that about 90% of baby girl clothes sold in stores are solid pink, so if I was looking for other, more exciting colors or prints, I would have to, well, keep looking.

Hello Everyone, I'm Back

Hey guys! I guess I stretched my "maternity leave" a little longer than I expected. My baby girl is two months old now and it's has been the craziest but also the most beautiful two months of my life. I've been trying to keep things as normal as possible - I get out of the house every day, even if it's just to get coffee, I still don't wear sweatpants outside, no matter how exhausted/lazy I feel, I'm pretty diligent in maintaining a manicure (because there's nothing that says "deterioration" more than chipped nail polish) and I still bake cakes occasionally, just to remind myself that I'm still capable of much more than just changing diapers. But I would be a big fat liar if I told you that not much has changed since I had my baby, because it pretty much turned my life upside down... but I wouldn't have it any other way.

Generally, I'm a girl who likes to think she has her life together. I moved from Hungary to Italy when I was just 19 years old and got married at 21. In these past few years I travelled a lot, I moved houses several times, I've learnt to cook, to speak Italian and to be in a marriage (which is definitely not an innate skill, you guys) and so many other things I would have never thought I would be able to do, like producing short films or living out of a suitcase for 3 months at a time. But nothing prepared me for caring for a wonderful tiny human being who depends on me for literally everything 24/7. 

My schedule pretty much revolves around her needs, but since she does me the favor of actually sleeping at night (a miracle, from what I've gathered), I don't really mind going to bed at 10 pm instead of 3 am, so I can sleep a decent stretch of time while she sleeps. Also, I spend most of my time feeding her, since I'm determined to exclusively breastfeed, even if the pain borders on unbearable on some days. I haven't managed to get myself to the gym yet, because who wants to sweat on the elliptical when you can sit on the couch eating cake "because you need 500 extra calories a day to breastfeed". But all things aside, having my daughter is most amazing thing that has ever happened to me and I'm so grateful for every moment I get to spend with her - as cliché as that might sound.

As far as fashion is concerned, my new style can best be described as "50 shades of black". Because ain't nobody got time for matching different colors... But this blog might just be the motivation I need to get back to dressing like a normal person. I hope you bare with me through this crazy and wonderful phase of my life. 

Have a great week my friends and see you in a few days!

Camel Coat

It's been a while since my last outfit post huh... Even though I still somehow manage to dress my sleep deprived self every morning and get out of the house by lunchtime, taking outfit pictures seemed like an impossible task until now. But hey, I did it! I guess this is the first step to returning to a somewhat normal schedule.

Banggood Wishlist

1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 // 6 

It's Christmas time, you guys! Another perfect occasion to wear lots of black - but with festive red accents. I chose these pieces from Banggood and I think they would all be perfect for a casual holiday lunch with friends or a day of Christmas shopping. I especially love the wool skater skirt and the super cute reindeer pin and the biker boots are perfect to balance out the girly details. What do you guys think? Do you have a favorite?

All Things Bean + GIVEAWAY

Well, happy Monday, everyone! I'm up at the crack of dawn (8 am) writing this, because feeding and taking care of a miniature human around the clock while your whole body aches is no easy task and getting out of bed at this ungodly hour is the only way I can accomplish anything during the day. But it's so worth it, people, that I will just stop complaining and enjoy the miracle that is motherhood.
