Ju-Ju-Be x tokidoki Better Be Diaper Bag

For the longest time I wanted to have a bag by tokidoki. Not one of the fake ones you see some people with here and there. tokidoki’s designs are heavily influenced by Japanese pop culture. The bag, accessory and clothing patterns are really cute and colorful with a lot of funny mascots like cactus people and animals and similar. The first time I saw something by tokidoki was while I was still at the university. I instantly fell in love with their designs, but even with working part-time I had no spare money to buy a bag which would cost € 100+. So…

Flynn’s Birth Story – Part 1

It’s almost one year ago since Flynn was born, but I still think about it from time to time. Especially now, as it’s July again. Sadly I can’t really remember much from Flynn’s very first few months, it’s like I’m missing days and weeks of my memory. And everything that I can actually remember is just blurry. I think this is what it must feel like when you drink too much alcohol, and you can’t remember what you did last night. I’ve never experienced this, so I can’t say for sure, but that’s how I could describe it best. So before…

Hello Flynn!

Hello Flynn!

It might be a little late, but I really want you all to meet our beautiful little baby boy Flynn! I can’t believe that he’s going to be eight months already by tomorrow… But let’s take a look back to his first days: Here’s the very first picture that they took at the hospital, just some minutes after birth. I’m sorry about the quality, but it’s just a photo of a printout. But I still think it’s really cute: Flynn Oliver 16.

4 Weeks Remaining

Wow, the big day is only 4 weeks away today – approximately of course. Because you can never say for sure when exactly the baby will decide to come out. Well, according to what my mother told me I however was born exactly on the calculated date. The story is easy to tell: My mother didn’t feel well and walked (!) with my grandmother to the hospital and not even two hours later I was there, just without any trouble whatsoever. My mother even complained that she was hungry, but no one wanted to give her something  to eat, because I…

A New Chapter in My Life

Hi everyone! I’m really sorry about the lack of updates in the last months. Somehow I just didn’t feel like writing much. And then so much has changed in my life as well: Last year in November Tom and me found out that we will be expecting a child. I was really surprised at first, not that I became pregnant of course XD, because we wanted to have children now and stopped using any birth control in late summer, I already stopped using Evra in late 2012, but since as you might know I was having a pretty hard time and…
