Babyshower Party Decor

Hey loves,

right before we left Germany we had our Babyshower/Farewell party. As we were expecting our little boy I couldn’t resist decorating in baby blue and white. I got inspired on Pinterest and had a garden party with barbecue and bonfire in my mind. Luckily the weather pleased us and it was a warm and sunny day. :)

I found the Pompoms on Ebay and decorated the tent with them. Although it took me ages to build them together I loved the results and still think they are a must-have on babyshower parties. For the flower arrangements I bought several bunches of different white flowers in the supermarket and took a walk around in the garden to add some green highlights. This helped to save some money as flowers tend to get quite expensive. The last thing I worked on were the candle holders. Our family once bought the glasses for a wedding – a great investment as we are still using them for several occasions. To pick up the blue and white theme again I bought a white and babyblue ribbon to wrap around the storm lamps. Instead of leaving the knots at the end, I found the little pearl flowers in a local stationary shop and put them on top of the knots.

I wish you all a happy week-end,
lots of love

Introducing our Babyboy

Hey everyone,

I’m so happy to introduce our little bundle of joy to you. Little Noah was born on October 11, 2014 at 1:55 pm. I gave birth at the Rosie Birth Centre in Cambridge and would totally decide to go there again. As I gave birth naturally without an epidural the pain was like hell – but having our little one on my chest for the first time definitely made up for it! My midwife back in Germany told me to concentrate on breathing – that helped me to survive the 14 hours. But even more supporting was my boyfriend – he supervised my breathing during every contraction and never left my side. I am so thankful for having the best partner I could ever ask for :) The first few weeks have been quite tough as Noah suffered from jaundice and I had really bad back pain. Luckily little one is healthy now and gaining a good amount of weight every week. My back is getting better but still hurts, let’s hope it heals soon. The nights are still really exhausting and I feel like an owl – only living during the night. Noah’s tummy often hurts and his rhythm is the opposite way around. So we’re currently working on a routine and trying to help him with his colics.

Even though I have less time for myself and a permanent lack of sleep, I absolutely love being a mum. Having a little baby is the greatest gift in the world and I am so grateful for that.

Now I send lots of hugs to all of you!
Yours,

Mimi

Moving to the UK

Hey loves,

I am so sorry for being gone for so long! A lot of things have changed the past weeks but I’m ready to finally fill you in and give you an update on what has been going on. First of all: my boyfriend and I moved to England! We gave up our apartment in Germany and will be living in Cambridge for one year. We already settled in very well (only some home decor is missing ;)) and I absolutely love this beautiful city.

On top of that our little baby boy was born in October and we couldn’t be any happier. I will introduce our little one in the next post, so stay tuned.

I tried to document our moving process a little bit, so have fun checking out those pictures!

See you soon and lots of love,

Yours Mimi
