    Toddler Room Makeover on a Budget (Rental Friendly)

    Our little ones need a cosy safe space to call their own. Today I’m sharing a toddler room makeover on a budget (that is also rental friendly). It can be quite costly to buy lots of new furniture bits and decor for a nursery. However, it doesn’t have to be like that. Babies and toddlers will be happy with whatever you choose, so why not go the minimalist route? Here are my tips for keeping it simple, yet adorable for your little one’s room. I also have a good hack for all of you living in a rental space (like we do). Let’s get started! Minimal white furniture It may…

    Fall Toddler Capsule Wardrobe | +FREE CHECKLIST | H&M Minimalist Baby Boy Wardrobe

    I’m so excited to share with you today my fall toddler capsule wardrobe for this year. Autumn is upon us and I couldn’t be more excited, especially when all the cute baby sweaters and tiny jackets start to make an appearance in stores. It also seems like my toddler has had a growth spurt because nearly all of his clothes are now too tight for him or the sleeves have become too short. Around springtime I first shared my toddler’s capsule wardrobe and a lot of you found that post helpful, so here is the autumn version of my toddler boy capsule wardrobe for this year. A couple of days ago…

      There are so many products for babies and toddlers on the market at the moment that it’s hard to know which ones are worth spending your money on.

    Toddler Boy Capsule Wardrobe | +FREE CHECKLIST | Minimalist Baby Wardrobe

      I recently had to re-do my toddler’s wardrobe, so I decided to share the process with you. Here are a few tips I followed in deciding what pieces we needed. I hope you find this helpful if you’re looking to create a toddler boy capsule wardrobe. My toddler is soon turning 18 months old and this is about the time when they also change size in clothing. I could definitely tell that Victor is not really fitting well in the previous size, so I had to get a series of new clothes for him in the next size up. And that is 18-24 months or 1 1/2 – 2…

    BABY PRODUCTS I REGRET BUYING – You Don’t Need These

      As a first time mom, I wanted to buy ALL the best things for my baby. And in the process I realized there are a bunch of them I actually didn’t need or didn’t end up using. Here are the baby products I regret buying.  1. Intricate baby outfits Anything from newborn shirts to constricting jeans (I think they’re ok if they’re a more flexible fabric). In the first months I mainly used baby grows, onesies, simple things that you just change quickly, because as new babies they will spit up a lot and have blow outs, so you want to make the changes quick and easy for both…

    10 Things I Learned in My First Year as a Mom | WHAT I WISH I KNEW BEFORE HAVING A BABY

    Hi to all moms or future-moms out there! I thought today I would share with you a few things that I learned in my first year as a mom and just some bits that I wish I knew before having a baby. When I was pregnant I used to read a lot about being a mom, how to take care of a baby; I would watch youtube videos trying to picture my life with a baby. And yet – as prepared as I thought I was – I learned the most of it AFTER becoming a mom. Because no book can prepare you for the whirlwind that is motherhood. It…

    Tips On Traveling With a Baby | What I Pack & What I Wore

    Happy Wednesday! For today’s post I figured I would do something a bit different than my usual outfit posts. I wanted to share with you a few outfits that I wore on our beach vacation last month, along with my tips for traveling with a baby. I’m also sharing my list of things I packed for my 9 month old (at the time). Obviously, things change when you travel with a baby that is older than 6 months, because you have to take into consideration solids as well. Because I didn’t know what would be available at the hotel to give to Victor, I decided to get jars of baby…

    When Your Baby Grows Too Fast | PatPat Baby Clothing

    I recently got a chance to test out the PatPat baby clothing and I wanted to share some bits with you. One of the most bittersweet experiences of a mom’s life is probably seeing how quickly your baby grows up. It’s probably very cliche and I know every mom says this about her baby, but I honestly CANNOT believe how much little Victor has changed since birth.   Now that he is 6 months old, I feel like there’s a lot of new things he can do that he was not able to before. He can sit up on his own, eats solids, babbles like crazy, rolls around and crawls…

    Baby Neutral Nursery Tour. Organisation Tips and Ikea Ideas

      Putting together the nursery was probably one of the most exciting things I got to do during pregnancy. I loved buying little bits for my baby and it made me feel more calm and happy, because I felt more prepared for when he would arrive. Today I’m sharing our neutral nursery tour   If you follow me on Youtube, then you’ve probably already seen the Nursery Tour video and my huge baby haul video to prepare for baby’s arrival. But just in case you haven’t, I wanted to make a blogpost all about it. I also got a lot of questions about random things I got for his nursery.…

    Third Trimester of Pregnancy | My Experience

    Today we’re talking all about the third trimester of pregnancy in my experience. Symptoms, what went on week by week, how I felt, ultrasounds etc. While I was pregnant, I filmed weekly updates on my Youtube channel, so if you would like to see those here is a playlist for you. I kept a pregnancy journal throughout my entire pregnancy and I thought it would be nice to share my experiences with you, week by week. These will also include the symptoms that I’ve been having during those weeks. I’ll try to write just a few short sentences for each week – since I don’t wanna make this post too long. Here…
