September is finally here, and it is time my little rascal starts going to kindergarten. I have been looking forward to it for the last month, because I have started working and it has been pretty difficult passing Rayan back and forth, babysitting him, and besides that I think it is great for every child to have that experience with other children, playing, learning, socialising, which he never could have got if he was staying home. So even if I wouldn't be working I'd still put him into daycare.

I have had my worries though, like every mother, how is he going to adjust to everything, how am I going to deal with it, because that is a big change in child's life, a whole new environment, people and most importantly no mommy involved :(

I am super happy and pleased with the kindergarten in our town, not only that it is brand new, opened a year or two ago, looks beautiful, the kindergarten teachers are super friendly, and they have a really friendly approach of adjusting children to everything.

Our first few days went quite well, we came in around eight, Rayan was a bit clingy at first but he found interest in all the toys that were there quickly, he played by himself, and every now and then took a glimpse of where I was sitting :) around 10.30 they got a fruit snack, and around 11 they would go to take a nap, which we skipped for the first couple of days, so we went home by 11.  

We stayed with our children the whole time, playing with them, and on the fourth day we left for an hour or so.. Rayan was crying of course, until I came back for him. Then day after day we started leaving our children longer, he stayed for naps and lunch, and now it is his second week in kindergarten and I can see a progression every day.. He is crying when we leave him in the morning, but he soon starts playing and gets distracted, he takes his naps, which I thought was impossible, because at home he sometimes didn't fall asleep until late in the afternoon. He eats better by the day, and every time I go pick him up, I find him playing and being in a good mood. It sure makes me really happy and relieved, to see things are getting better every day, it still isn't easy leaving your child, hysterically crying, but I have hope that he soon will grow on it, and will love being there :)

I can't remember the last time I was looking forward to summer vacation like this year. I miss the sun, salt, relaxation, tanned skin, hot nights, palm trees, everything!! Well don't really know how much of the relaxation part is going to happen this time, with my bubba, but it doesn't matter cause I can't stop thinking about what a blast he will have as well. Last year he was only three months old when we were on vacation, but now he's a big boy and I can't wait to see him play on the  beach and enjoy in the sea. Counting down the days till we go to the sea side. ☀️🌴

Hello beauties! It has been a while since you heard from me, but I have been working on a little secret project annd have been crazy busy with my bub, last couple of days were exhausting. Apparently I have a hyper baby and things tend to get pretty intense around here. I get really anxious and overwhelmed when I can't manage to cope with everything I want to, and my boy is giving mommy a hard time lately. As bad as I want to spend time blogging, my baby is my number one priority always, and so is spending quality time with him. And we are by ourselves most of the time so even doing things around the house got basically impossible. I really wonder where does he get all that energy from though, cause I didn't imagine that a one year old can wake up at 7.30, have a half an hour nap in the entire day and then barely fall asleep at 11 pm 😓. Anyways, situations always change, especially with a little child, and sooner or later I will get back on track with things. Hugs!

T-Shirt & pants : ZARA baby

Heey babes, how are you all doing? I was an early bee this morning, had some work to do before my bub woke up, because it is quite impossible to do anything when he's awake 😊 He always wants my full attention during the day, but he prefers playing by himself and running around in the evenings. Yesterday though we slept in together until 10am. I was quite in shock, because that has never happened before. 😬

Anyway, we're having lunch right now and then we're probably heading out for a walk. Unless it starts to rain again, because these last couple of days the weather was a mess :( I just hate it, and the fact that it impacts on my mood so much, I don't have the energy or motivation for anything on days like these. Being stuck inside the house is the worst thing for me.

Uh I almost forgot to mention, I loove these military camo pants from Zara baby, they are probably my fave right now. I just adore Zara when it comes to baby outfits, they are just so freakin adorable :) I try not to buy everything for my little man, when I'm there but it's quite hard to resist.

Hey guys! Hope everyone is doing well. I finally got a couple of minutes for myself, to have some coffee and relax in the sun a little bit. I was on a walk this morning with my babe, and when he was walking by himself, he stumbled and fell on the pavement, he actually landed on his hands but he tipped over on his face and bruised his lip 😥 And I was just saying this morning how his eye bruise got better finally- yeah, couple of days ago, he was walking across our apartment for two hours until 11 pm like a little hyper baby, and we couldn calm him down until he fell and hit his head on the coffee table. 😖 I sure am sick to my stomach all the time, watching him run around an be clumsy. I keep an eye on him all the time, but it takes a split second for such thing to happen. Feel so sorry for my little boo.

If you know me, you know that I am obsessed with candles. There is just something so enchanting and calming about them. I burn them almost every day, whether it's for the ambiance or the scent. They are a gorgeous decoration as well, because of the cutest packaging you can get them in.

My fave candles are the Yankee candle ones, but they are quite expensive to be buying them all the time. Like I mentioned in my previous post, I was in Graz couple of days ago, and besides going crazy in Ikea, I also went to Primark. It was totally overwhelming going through the clothes department, and I definitely need to go some other time by myself, without bubba, but I quickly checked the home area, and got these beautiful candles. I am in love. Such cute packaging, they look and smell amazing, and are super affordable. The most expensive one out of the bunch costed 4,50 eur. I'm hooked you guys. Cant wait to go back and get plenty more of them.

​Hey loves! Another weekend has passed by too fast, and boy this was a great one. Yesterday we went on a trip to Graz, we went to Ikea and some other shops, and got a bunch of new stuff for our home and for ourselves. When we returned we picked up my nieces, for a sleepover at our place. We had a fantastic afternoon, the girs were playing with Rayan all the time, they even gave him a bath, or I should say they had a bubble bath together in his little bathtub 😅. They stayed up until 11pm, but of course my bubba was the last one standing, and could probably go for hours more if I hadn't tried putting him to bed so much. 

Today though I had a very chill day with my lil babe. Hubby was away for a race car event, and me and bub stayed in cozy at home. Spent the day cuddling, playing and eating 😂 

Have a great evening and a fabulous week ahead of us! **

​I ordered this beautiful contouring palette the other day on and I can't wait to try it out. I love trying out new products for sculpting the face, especially since I haven't found one that I would fall in love with and wouldn't want to replace. This is a cream contour from a brand called Revolution. Their products are pretty affordable and a great quality I heard. I'm eyeing a couple of products I will definitely try out if this turns out good 😊 You can order this on Licila.si .

I'll update this post in a couple of days to let you know my thoughts on this product ;)​

Hey babes! I can't believe it's all over now, I've been anticipating my babies birthday celebration forever. Though I'm quite tired but It was all worth it, because to me everything was just perfect. I couldn't wait for the day to begin on Friday, to kiss and hug my little boy, to sing him a happy birthday, and as if he knew, he kept me waiting and he slept like never before, until 10 am. 😊 In the meantime I prepared some snacks for later, I made finger food sandwich bites, pizza rolls, some cheese and salami plates, fruit kebabs, and the previous day I made muffins, rum balls and I baked the cake with my mom. 

I was really happy with how everything came out, and couldn't wish for more. Baby Rayan, (khm now a toddler) was so hyped the whole day, he was properly celebrating his first candle. He was loving the cake as well as the decorations we have put up. It was sure a  very special day, and I will remember it forever!

Happy first birthday baby Rayan!!!My sweeeet child, turned one!!! 🎉 I can't believe how fast this year has gone by, I am totally overwhelmed with everything. Rayans birthday was a couple of days ago and I really planned to keep you updated with everything but these past few days were a complete roller coaster, went by so quickly , and I couldn't focus on anything else but my family.

One year ago my life changed completely, and I can't begin to explain how amazing it was. So many priceless moments, I wouldn't trade for anything else in the world. I love this little human more than words can describe, and I am beyond grateful to have him.
