This cake is otherwise known as my mouth moves faster than my brain. Did I just promise the kids I'd bake a cake? Anyhoo, after losing my planned lazy Sunday, I figured I might as well take out a couple more birds out with that stone. Mika has been bugging me to bake his chocolate cake and we have a huge stash of chocolate eggs from the Easter hunts.

Fluffy vanilla cake sandwiched together with black berry jam, dripping in chocolate and covered in yet more chocolate Easter eggs. Mika first sentence upon waking..Mama, can I have a piece of cake now?

P.S. They had a slice with breakfast. Heck, I say "let them eat cake"!

Added some much needed storage in the hallway. I like to think adding these shelves add the style...

Have a great weekend!

I was browsing through the Etsy shop of George and Willy, drooling over the daily roller for groceries and the round sign for a bit of in punch in the hallway when I saw this fire starting kit.
I know, I know, it's almost June, but I can't help it. I have fires, Christmas and marshmallows roasting on the brain. Yes, my brain is a frightfully delightful but oddball kind of place...

But back to the fire starter. Totally perfect. I mean, seriously, do you see me with a kindling and paper? I'm scared every time I light a candle! This kit is seriously easy and not to forget aesthetically pleasing. Light stone. Place stone in fireplace. Bob's your uncle.

Most days I won't leave the house without my contacts. And most days the first thing I say when I get home is "I'm going upstairs to take out my lenses". I finally got around to updating my glasses and I can see again. I even wear these outside the home... sometimes.

We had a couple of days in Barcelona. The thing I love about the city is the architecture. The most amazing, detailed, buildings mixed in with grand open spaces, little courtyards and windy streets. An our favorite thing to do? Dinner and drinks.. Thanks babe.

Brass bed




Not quick to DIY. Also not one to jump on the brass bandwagon right away. And then I saw this headboard made from a sheet of polished brass and now I'm thinking of ways to get rid of our current one..

Check out more of this lush bedroom here.
