I’ve been trying to learn a few lullabies to sing to J and i’ve mastered the “Hello to the Sun” one this morning while showering. There’s something about this one that i would listen even if i didn’t have a baby. So while singing it to Jason earlier, i swear to God this happened.

He started staring at me, and his eyes filled with tears.. and then his lower lip started trembling by the end of the song while he still kept listening! In the end he started crying a bit however ahah so my bet is that either he was surprised to hear me sing or my voice is really really bad lol.

It is a sunny day however and i really wanted to letter something today. I took these flower pictures back in Athens while we were waiting for J to arrive. I have tons of small pink roses and sunny white ones (not sure how they’re called?). So expect some moody designs coming your way soon!

Don’t know about you, but we’re waking up every day to some really nice and chilly mornings and in the evenings, the air smells a lot like Autumn. This time every year, i get especially inspired but hot coffee and the leaves falling, as i’m pretty sure you all are!

So i quickly illustrated today for the sake of creating something after such a long time. The pink still lives strongly around here, so here’s a wallpaper for those who are fully embracing fall and for those who are still can’t let go summer.

But really, what i’m mostly excited about is Walking Dead and first Halloween with J!

It’s high time i acknowledged the fact that it’s summer you guys! A little late in the game i know – you’re probably already sipping margaritas by the pool. This past week has felt a lot like June (at last!) and spending summer with the babe is really something. Yesterday, we had our first trip to the beach, where he slept pretty much the whole time. Hah, i guess at 2 months old, you’re too young to be excited by the waves and sand between your toes.

Things have been very nice and peaceful at this side of the world. Smooth projects, back to work, slowly making time for personal projects as well. I’m so lucky to have the support of my dear hubby and family so we’re mostly enjoying our little guy’s every day achievements and smiles. Like, when he showed interest and tried to grab his toy for the first time a couple of hours ago.. which of course was followed by shedding a few tears by his dear mother. Something that happens a lot around here lately 😀

Today marks week 38 for my -not so little anymore- belly and you can only imagine the anticipation level we’ve reached. Everything is ready, everyone prepared and any time now, we’ll be holding our little guy.

At the same time, although i should normally feel like slowing down, quite the opposite my mind is scheming and planning the next steps. The past few years in my freelancing and business building career, one i’ve learnt is that you can literally achieve anything you put your mind onto. No exceptions. All you need is hard work, a plan, determination and passion.

If we start talking about dreams, oh i have so many of them! I only wish i could clone myself and start working on each and every project i have in my mind. From the silk scarves we talked about the other day, to a summer inspired clothing / swimwear line, wallpaper design, textiles, homeware..don’t get me started. Were i’m loosing my thoughts entirely, is where do you stop? How do you choose which one is the right one to pursue especially when you have so many of them?

I guess just having them, is a great start for motivation isn’t it?

It’s been a long long week, full of working hours and new pretty colourful projects i’m working. You may have spotted the illustration i did for Apartment Therapy and you’ll definitely be seeing it on their Instagram stories quite often.

We’re already in Athens were things are a bit more hectic and crazy, but enjoying every bit of it so far. Did this quick lettering today in between projects to remind you that you’re pretty! I’ve been feeling so crappy most of my pregnancy until i obviously realised that beauty came from within and not fro whether i wear fancy clothes and have my makeup on.

*Said the girl who has been wearing pjs 24/7 for the past 8 months*

Vintage tropical patterns, white linen, white lace, woven shoes, bags, straw hats.. that’s pretty much everything that has been on my mind lately. I’ve literally have fallen in love with my Pinterest all over again the past couple of months and the dream girl on my Wear & Styled boards.

Psst.. i may be toying with the idea of creating silk scarves -you know the ones that you can wear as tops too- and i may have been practising on some woven beach bags. When i can’t find what i like, you know me.. i’m all about making it myself. So who knows, maybe one day i’ll launch a few different things on my shop at last!

This tropical piece was an experiment of colour play and vintage mood. A pattern i would love to wear as a scarf maybe? So far it sits on my desktop and i’m sharing it with you as well!

To all my ladies out there, Happy Women’s Day!

To be quite honest with i didn’t celebrate this day all the previous years. This one however, i feel so empowered by everything going on globally. I’m inspired by the unity, all the powerful women i know and admire and with everything going on with my body at the moment.

Most of all, i feel so lucky and privileged to be a woman in this era, as well as having everything i have, including the right to be heard and be equal.

We may seem to forget that often, but we have so much while other have little. While battling for what is right in our era, my thoughts go to all the strong women around the world who are not as privileged and have to endure the unjustice.

Mothers, sisters, friends, lovers and wives. We fight, we love, we create and we speak with a fiery passion. And for that, I admire and love you all.
