First trip out and about with just us was a success! The pacifier is really helpful for times like those. We had a pediatrician appointment and found that he’s gaining weight well- woohoo! 💪🏻
Nothing like winter skies gets us dreaming of warm destinations. Where are you going + who are you taking with you?? Don’t forget the necessities like these carry on cocktail kits for 2🍸✈️✨💕 #cocktailsfortwo #giftsonthego

"I am not afraid of storms, for I am learning how to sail my ship." - Louisa May Alcott. If like me you've been wandering in a cloud of self doubt the past few weeks, know that it's ok. This time of year is strange and often difficult. Take time for self care this weekend - for me that's just doing the things I enjoy doing, creating from little sparks of ideas, reading books, drinking tea. Hope you can find some quiet and calm too 💕

No soy fan de pintarme las uñas, ni ando obsesionada, no me gusta dejarlas crecer porque BACTERIAS, y además... lavar los platos, estar con tierra de plantitas, entre otras cosas, hace que me incomode más el tenerlas largas.
💖Alguien más que comparta desagrado por las uñas largas? 🧐
•En historias les voy a dejar mi opinión en relación a su duración, porque me las pinté hoy 💅🏼
So thankful for my best friend ❤️ don’t forget to tell your bestie how much they mean to you!
|| Hey lovers! Currently in the City of Light chasing cheese, wine & any pastry I can get my hands on. For anyone recently new here, welcome! I’m Kimon, your avid wandering, sometimes getting lost, love loving photographer. I packed 4 books with me, though I’ve been reading the same one for the past 6 months, we all have good intentions, right? I also miss climbing in Santorini, good thing I’m staying in Montmartre tackling stairs. And hey, let’s see how my willpower fairs against giving into all the French butter, but what better city to buy a new (larger) wardrobe in. Either way I’m here meeting new inspiring couples, still waking up at ungodly hours capturing as always wild and roaming hearts. 😘
This beautiful lady in competing in Miss Florida this weekend and I could not be more proud of her!! Go get your dream girl!! 😍
Last weekend I learned that my cousin @livefromnewy0rk
had an entire collection of art that he created "just because." I had so many questions. How did you learn? Where did you get the material to make it? HOW DID YOU MAKE THE TIME?! To which, his answers were: YouTube, local art shop, and by just doing it. I sat there scratching my head, dumbfounded. But he ain't even lying, though!
So, on this Friday, I would like to shout the F&%k out everyone who does what excites them simply because it does. I do my best to do the same, but sometimes I can't help but think, "once everything falls into place, then I'll have time to... [enter everything that makes my heart really, really happy]" Seeing this was confirmation that it doesn't have to be that way!
What have you FINALLY crossed off of your #bucketlist
, simply because you made the choice to do what makes you happy? Safe space to brag, below. 👇🏼

~ La vita e i sogni sono fogli di uno stesso libro. Leggerli in ordine è vivere, sfogliarli a caso è sognare.” A. Schopenhauer ~ Pagine di un diario di metà Gennaio, e pensieri sparsi sui sogni. Quelli chiusi per troppo tempo in un vecchio cassetto impolverato, che chiedono solo il coraggio di uscire. E proprio il coraggio è quello che ci manca, a volte, per farli diventare realtà. Come fare allora?
1. Liberarsi dalle paure: L'ostacolo alla realizzazione dei propri sogni è la paura. Può essere la paura del giudizio, dell'abbandono. Oltretutto, il più delle volte noi stessi operiamo una sorta di "auto-sabotaggio": nel proprio intimo, ciascuno di noi sa perfettamente cosa NON va bene, però, per vari motivi, magari per non uscire da una zona di comfort, preferisce accontentarsi e raccontarsi che tutto sommato non va così male.
2. Cambiare attitudine verso gli eventi: gli eventi della vita non si possono modificare, ma quello che possiamo fare tutti è modificare l'attitudine verso gli eventi.
3. La realtà è il nostro specchio: spesso abbiamo l'impressione che ci siano persone che ci ostacolano, alle quali attribuiamo la colpa dei nostri limiti, ma dovremmo ammettere che gli altri sono il nostro specchio. Quando pensiamo di avere attorno solo persone sbagliate, spesso siamo noi a riversare sugli altri le nostre vibrazioni negative.
E voi, come vi comportate con i vostri sogni? Ne custodite alcuni nel cassetto in attesa di farli diventare realtà? . . .
My R&R in Lincoln was so much fun in the hot tub. 🛀
don't ever put 8 in a hot tub for 4, you loose all the water and the jets go crazy when you get out!! 😂
But in all seriousness I did learn a lot in between hot tubs that I have been putting into action.
Taking action from lessons least is key! 🗝
We are pretty excited to be creating this pair of bags for an Etsy photo shoot!! 💃🏻 Thank you for the support @etsy @etsysuccess
Why did I start Swoon Food? The truth is I kinda fell into it. I left my job as a pastry chef to start what I thought was my dream business. I saw a gap in the market for really good quality, fine dining style desserts, that you could buy at the supermarket. Molten chocolate pudding, salted caramel creme brûlée, baked passionfruit cheesecake etc. As a pastry chef I could make these myself, but like anyone else, sometimes I just wanted the convenience of buying them!
So I spent a year researching it all. I tested out recipes, got packaging designed, labels, branding, took them to local markets, spent a bomb on microbial testing, found suppliers and talked to distributors. After what seemed like an arduous search, I also finally found a manufacturer. But after doing all the figures, they said they’d have to make 10000 desserts a month to make it worth their while. 🙀
Now, for a product that had a 4 week shelf life that might have been ok in country with a large population, but in NZ there’s no way I could have sold that many.
Around this time I’d also started eating dairy and gluten free, and was looking at cutting sugar too. So it suddenly seemed contradictory to be selling desserts I wouldn’t eat myself.
So when I called it quits on my dessert business I realised what I really loved about the whole process was creating recipes, styling and photographing them, and the whole design process. And that’s how Swoon Food began.
And how do you make money from a food blog? Well turns out it’s not that easy but is a story for another day!
we just booked a place to stay for our Miami trip in March. Miami was the first place my husband and I’ve traveled together as a married couple and I cannot believe this will be our third year going! Our favorite activity is to go cruisin on our bikes with the beautiful view of the beach and walking up to the lighthouse top to see the stunning view. I am so ready to get out of this cold and rainy weather and see some sunshine and blue ocean!
Took a day off of social media yesterday to celebrate Bentley’s fourth birthday! In slight denial about him getting older and thankful for everyday I have with my four legged fur children.
Did you know that I personally hand-form and hammer each of these 14k gold filled earrings before pairing them with their best mate? Each one is ever so slightly different than the next. And to me, these often overlooked details are the most beautiful part😍⠀

утро: - тем ли я занимаюсь?
- почему я всё порчу?
- или не всё?
- ммм, расклад про карму на пять жизней назад - может, пора?
- или испустить дух?
- или порыдать?
- а может, разом всех спасти?
- хочу учить языки, пофиг зачем, просто в кайф
- хочу трениться и трениться, пофиг, танцую ли я как тумбочка
- хочу хочу хочу...
и идёшь такая по улице в наушниках лапками тыц тыц сложное движение на ходу отрабатываешь, выглядишь, как регулировщик, иииии пофиг...
и тараканы в голове по цветным контейнерам расселись, медитируют, оммм... фффух, как же я рада, что вот так...)
а коридор затмений проходит трешово, но всё же достойно.

One of the gifts I got for Christmas was a sweet pampering box with wonderfully lavendar scented lotion and such things. What the giver didn't know was that the box it came in was perfect for a diy light box. Today I finally got to repurposing it! And boy, did my little guy looove it! We looked high and low for things in our house that we could try on our light box. Obviously the most beautiful thing I found was our mini butterfly exhibit, which I've recently hung in his play area. The way the light shown threw each butterfly was just wonderful!

Here's what we used:
*I box with a window
*LED mini string lights
*translucent to semi translucent objects.
Hey everyone 👋🏼 Happy Friday (finally)! I got a pretty late start this morning. I didn’t have my first cup of coffee until 12:00 😳 Tomorrow is my boyfriend’s Birthday but unfortunately he couldn’t get that day off work so I’m on my way to him now to go have lunch together on his break.🍴 Sunday we’ll be going to Texas de Brazil in Orlando, I can’t wait to show you guys their food and also what we’ll be doing this weekend! I hope everyone has a safe and blessed weekend! 💕
Our little cabin felt like a scene from telly tubbys. 😂
We may not have had the weather on our side at all times but such a lovely little hideaway from day to day distractions. 😉 .
Sometimes that just what you need. 😊

This is a photo from one of the best days, trips, vacations of my life... thank you @rachael_laporte
for providing us with such an incredible and unforgettable experience. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I have to admit something to you. I'm an incredibly private person. My whole life I have never wanted to highlight my personal life or really share it at all. Getting married and going on our honeymoon was really the first time I've shared behind the scenes of my real life...
and I loved it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
it actually built my confidence!!!
So now, whenever I get the chance as I'm traveling. I promise to get photos taken so that I remember, savor and share with confidence. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sharing actually made me recognize the fears I had that I wasn't acknowledging and helped me work through them in true #bravefear
I am so grateful for these moments and sharing in real time and I encourage you to share more of your life too. (I'm still working through fears around this, so we can do this together!)
Happy Friday love!!!
Amazing food, delicious cocktails, and endless fun await you. Discover a world of adventure and live in the moment this summer aboard a luxury charter yacht. What are some destinations you'd like to explore this year?
I can’t be the only one excited for Friday, and the weekend! This weekend is extra special because I’ll get to cuddle Axton, my kitten, along with my warm fuzzy grey blanket, drinking a little bit more coffee than I should and catching up on my homework! 😻

I CANNOT express how thankful I am for these people, these classroom supplies, this talent God has given me and the life that photography has blessed me with. 😍♥️ Thank you from the bottom of my heart.
