20 Great ideas to do with your family during the summer holidays.

Admittedly, not something I know from experience (yet), but something I do hear loud and clear from other parents: "The summer holidays are here, now what to do with them kids?". 

Some parents feel obligated to fill up their children's summer with activities that will be both educational and entertaining and by not providing such environment they have, however failed to give to their kids a great summer experience.

Now, probably I was simply neglected from my parents, but they never really showed much concern about how I spent my long summer days and I keep plenty of good experiences.

My advice to other parents would be not to worry as much. There are many things we can all do with our kids if we are creative enough and surely time spent trying them out will bring lovely summer memories for everybody involved. Don't over complicate. Sometimes it's O.K. and natural for anybody to get bored. Boredom is probably the birth of creativity!
Anyway, I have looked up at 20 ideas of what to do during summer holiday season. I can't honestly wait to try some of this out with my little one. I am keeping my list for future reference!

Colourful touches to creatively decorate any bedroom.

We continue with the maniacal habit of wanting to DIY everything to make this home sweet home a warmer place to live in. This week I have made a blackboard to write the shopping list (or any other kind of special message, drawing or what not...) 

Also I painted a wooden sign with the following legend: "Salle * de * Bains" to indicate which is the bathroom door (though to be honest, this Loft is so small that it is quite clear where the bathroom is and there is really no need for any kind of add). 

But going back to the sources of inspiration in order to start with a new future project; here goes some very colourful ideas to sparkle any bedroom.  :) Enjoy!

P.S. How about you? Have you got a project in mind? Which one?

Ideas to decorate your kitchen and dinning area!

Next I will present you the last ideas that have been floating around in my head. Lately I feel quite strongly about DIY and making our home (sweet home) far more pleasant.

For sure I want to know how to paint in glass, fabric (or anything), become a carpenter, a fashion designer, (or at least be familiarized with the sewing machine)... anyway I want to be able to create and develop projects!  Such is my obsession that, weekly I am carrying out a mini plans that include in a way a sort of repair/ renovate/ fabricate. 

I can proudly say that so far my intentions are far better than my accomplishments :) None the less, I'll keep you up to date on how it goes. 

Here they go: simple ideas to incorporate to your kitchen - dinning room that will surely make it look different: a little lighting, some plants, colourful accessories and contrasts... 
...à bientot!

I love it, how about you?

Home Photographic Session :)

This is my very dear friend A and her baby boy. A is a wonderful and quite unique woman. We could talk for hours and enjoy each other's company whilst just doing nothing. We believe in the same things and share our core values that could be consider to be: hipster, revolutionary, hippy or what not but regardless of the label we know we are right and everybody else is wrong ;) we are just sensible women who want to fully enjoy life and work for a better place.

In exchange of these pictures (and being all boho's) A will be providing me with new garden acquisitions that will go very nicely with our already growing allotment.
