Hello!

It seems like ages ago since I wrote a proper post in this blog. I apologise for the disappearing, I’m still alive with lots of things happening at the moment, from working on some exciting projects, enjoying the beautiful British summer, to more personal ones I will share with you soon.

But don’t worry I’m back and eager to share more beautiful things with you. Recently I found out about Lucky Dip Club, have you ever heard of it? You should! because the concept behind is so cool, that I can’t wait to put my hands in one of these beautiful boxes soon.

Every month the incredibly talented Leona Thrift-ola puts together a surprise box full of beautiful handmade pieces of jewellery, cool accessories, stationery, easy DIY projects, etc, all beautifully wrapped and ready to send on the post. Although she gives a glimpse of what’s inside by choosing a “theme” every month, you won’t find out until it reaches your door. I love the surprise factor in this idea, and every item is so beautifully curated that I’m literally drooling in my computer right now.

I can’t imagine anything better than receiving a beautiful box filled with little treasures every month, the perfect treat and present for a bestie or sister. Find out more about Lucky Dip Club here.

Aren’t those letters brooches just gorgeous?

Oh The Places you’ll go by Dr Seuss

As a part of our bedtime routine we read Matias three books before he goes to bed. He gets to choose and even attempt to “read” some, which I find incredibly cute. Lately he’s been very keen on reading Dr Seuss stories, they are funny, the rhymes are great to keep him engage and the illustrations are beautiful and so unique.

Oh The Places You’ll Go is my favourite one, you can read it here (but I would recommend you to buy the book!), although a children’s book, anyone can relate with the beautiful and encouraging story. I don’t mind reading it every night, I think every child (and parent) should.

This is one of my favourite parts of the book:

“…

NO!  That’s not for you!

Somehow you’ll escape all that waiting and staying.

You’ll find the bright places where Boom Bands are playing.

With banner flip-flapping, once more you’ll ride high!  

Ready for anything under the sky.  

Ready because you’re that kind of a guy!

Oh, the places you’ll go!

There is fun to be done!

There are points to be scored.

There are games to be won….”

Do you have any favourite Dr Seuss book? There’s any other similar author you like to read to your children?

Have a wonderful weekend everyone

Living Arrow 25/52  “Summer is here”

We started our official first day of summer eating ice creams, a new hair cut and playing in the garden all day. Cheeky monkey holding TWO of them, lucky boy (one was mine ;-).

Ready for summer days!

If you are like me, you are still probably  looking for Father’s day last minute ideas. We are planning to make either cookies or a cake for daddy today as a final home made present. I always leave the wrapping at the end so I thought it would be nice to design and share some cute free printable to help you give the extra touches for dad’s special day.

I like the idea of leaving surprising sweet notes around the house, or simply using them as tags for presents. Download for free here and enjoy!

This Sunday is Father’s Day  in the UK. I’ve spent the last couple of days browsing the internet for some cool ideas, DIY projects and gifts inspiration, there’s a lot of “ties” and “suits” themes, I found it a bit tricky to find something different.

It’s hard not to fall into the cliché presents (although I have to say I totally did!), at the end of the day it’s a gesture to remind all the dads out there that we care about them, their support and unconditional love. Dads are so important in this “juggling act” that’s being a family, often underestimated but this day it’s a good day to do something nice to them.

So here are a few ideas I found around:

3// Father’s Day Printable Typography Glasses

4// Manly Man Soap Set

Any other ideas for this Sunday? What you guys are making/buying for dad?
