Bumble Bee Birthday Party

Bumble bee birthday party

Maya turned two on 18th March! A few weeks have gone by and I still can’t make sense of how is this possible? How is it possible that two years have passed and it feels like an instant! It it is the most incredible thing to watch her grow! Every moment, regardless of whether it is a tantrum or a joyful laughter is a true blessing and I couldn’t be more grateful! Happy Birthday my sweet girl!

Flying With A Toddler

Long Haul Flight Tips when Flying with a Toddler

I know that this topic has already been covered a lot. Many moms write wonderful and very useful tips on how to handle travelling with babies, toddlers and little kids. My favourite blog on this topic is Delicious Baby. If you are planning a trip with your little ones definitely check it out, it is packed with useful information.

In October we made a really long trip from Denver through London to Sofia, Bulgaria. Maya was 18 months old. I am not sure if there is anything new that I can add to this topic but since I have the experience of flying with a toddler on multiple flights including a long haul one, I would like to share my own thoughts and tips.

Knit IPhone Case Pattern

This is an easy knit iPhone case pattern that is simple to follow so that even a beginner can complete it.
I have been doing a lot of knitting lately and have a few projects and patterns to share with you. What you’d imagine is going to be easy to do, knitting a case for a new iPhone, actually turned to be a really daunting task. I mean, all you need to do is knit a solid block of fabric without any shaping and sew the seems, right?
I had a number of ideas in my head to use for a knit iPhone case pattern but every time I completed a project it just didn’t fit or seem right.
Finally I found the reversible mock cable stitch. It is very pretty knit and purl stitch that will look great for a lot of knitted projects.

Homemade Beauty Mask For Face And Hair

Happy New Year to all!

I hope it is a better one for all of us! For me it starts with some frustrating issues I am concerned I am not going to be able to deal with on time as well as some sad perspectives or rather pessimistic views on some past events.
I strongly hope the New Year turns out to be a lot better than the way it started!

I was pondering for a while on how to start the year in blogging. I was even considering if I should continue blogging at all since I don’t see much return on my efforts. But I love doing it so I thought I’d continue with Prettily. Almost any blogger I follow starts the year with a post about resolutions, dreams and intentions for 2015. But I don’t want to do that. I don’t like making resolutions or plans anymore. I know what my goals are and what it takes to achieve them and if I manage to do so that’s great. But if I fail somewhere in the middle and have to stop for whatever reason I don’t want to feel guilty by looking at a resolutions list.

Anyway, this post is supposed to be for beauty so let’s keep it this way! I thought I’ll kick of blogging in 2015 by sharing a recipe for a mask I’ve been doing for the last couple of months. It uses all natural ingredients that are good for both hair and face, even body, so feel free to make use of it as you see fit and as your beauty needs require.
