Not much as time has been limited this week, but here are things I want to share with this week from around the web.
Have a great weekend!
I didn’t get the chance to watch the Oscars ceremony! I know! I’m gutted. But I still browsed pictures of all the red carpet fashion! I agree with Fashion Mummy on this one. Her favourites are my favourites too. The winner being Kate Blanchet and her Armani dress! Classic! http://www.fashion-mommy.com/2014/03/03/oscars-2014-my-favourite-looks/
OK! Going back to work is a painful subject right now so I am not going to get into details here but this post about working mums by Kendra from My Full Thyme Life got me a bit emotional.
Oh I found this 50s dress on Pintrest and fell in love!
It looks like a film on my favourite book, Still Alice by Lisa Genova, is in the making.
This is an interesting article on what qualities you need to have to get a job at Google. I recommend you read it!

And last but not least I guess blogged this week on the lovely Mile High Mamas blog to share my experience on being a mum on the move.
I love cauliflower! It reminds me a lot of my grandma and her amazing pickled cauliflower salads which she prepared during the summer to be eaten during winter. She would shop the cauliflower, put it in a big jar, mix it with water, salt, vinegar and garlic and do some other magic tricks which I am not very familiar with, then leave the jars in a boiling water for several hours before storing them in the basement for several months. Then when snow starts to fall and we start to eat a lot of pork meat, she would take one jar at a time to eat as a salad. I loved it!
When I was a teenager getting into some kind of beauty routines for great hair and flawless skin, there was little skin care or hair care products available or affordable even. Me and my friends had to use a lot of natural ingredients and make our own masks to make ourselves look beautiful. I had a big recipe notebook left from my mum that had hundreds of recipes for facial or hair masks. One of the advices left from mum was about the magical treatment of egg yolks. They could be used without any processing on both hair and face. And they do work wonders!
Why are egg yolks so good for skin and hair? They are naturally rich on a numnber of great nutrients- protein, vitamins A and B and zinc. This combination is perfect to treat hair loss and thin hair as it would strenghten the hair and smooth the scalp. It is also great for skin to treat blemishes, spots and treat the signs of ageing. That is why eggs are great for home made masks for skin and hair care.
I missed this last week. Last week was a crazy one and not only I did not find the time to do this weekly post, I didn’t have much time reading and browising stuff online, so I had nothing much to share. But hope you enjoy this week’s links and have a great weekend!
I love face masks! From home made to high end super expensive brands to cheaper alternatives, I believe face masks can change our skin in a couple of minutes. Lisa Eldridge talks about face masks in this video
And more face masks! I wouldn’t mind an organic rose hip powder!
I went to a fantastic blogger event last week. It was organized by The Mile High Mama blog and sponsored by Soybu. Check them out! They’ve got really cool Yoga outfits. I can’t wait to share the one that I bought.

Photos from our weekend outing to the Museum of Nature and Science in Denver. I am really impressed with the museum exhibitions and would recommend a visit. Especially for kids, they offer amazing activities and offer science and nature studies in a fun and enjoyable way.
We didn’t manage to see all that is on show at the museum but it surely wasn’t our last visit.

I am too tired to write anything about the fact that my little baby just turned 11 months! We spent the entire day of her 11 month birthday in the emergency at the Children’s Hospital in Aurora. She was really dehydrated and had to go through an IV treatment for the entire day to get fluid running into her body. We are back home now and she is doing much better!
I can’t believe we are only a month away from Maya’s first birthday! I have said this many times but I feel like screaming it right now: where did the time go! 11 months! She keeps surprising me every second. And with every mischief or new achievement she makes I love her even more!
Happy 11 months my sweet baby!

Love this dress!
And for a great ending here is an article written a few years ago which I had the opportunity to hear read live at a conference by the author himself. It is so well written and such a great and thought provoking story I keep reading and reading it over and over again. Makes only sense to share with you! There is a horse in the Apple store
I am still learning a lot about makeup and how to properly work with it but I thought I’d share my idea for a stylish Valentine’s Day, or more evening, makeup. I played around with a number of ideas I had in my head and here is what I liked the most.
As I still have my lovely red lipstick from Mac, which is running out but I have just enough left, I thought there is no better lip colour for St. Valentine’s then a full bodied red colour. I wanted the focus to be on the red lips so eyes would be very simple and only to add a little more glamour but nothing too big.
A few weeks ago I bought this gorgeous fabric from our local thrift store, yellowish colour in a funky red star shape pattern. There wasn’t much of it so I knew I couldn’t do anything for me from it, but I thought it’d be great for a dress for Maya to wear on Valentine’s day. It was a lot of trial and error but I finally got what I wanted and I really like it. Unfortunately I did not take photographs of the process of how I made this dress so I will try my best to explain it. I had no pattern so it is pure imagination and experience from making this dress tutorial.
