magic sundays. sleeping in, leisurely breakfast in bed, reading a book till noon, turning around again in bed, hiding under the covers... just kidding. up since 6am and nothing is stopping us (or her, really). my little rascal. #itshappyhere #thehappynow #mamalovesyou #mamaleben #youaremywild #swissblogger #swissmom

a bit over a year ago, these were the place cards at our neat little wedding. magnolia leaves, hand written on by @e_v_a__g_a_d_i_e_n_t of @louisdortdesign. #memories #tb #thatsdarling #weddingstationery #weddingplanner #handlettering #weddingdesign

frankly, nope, we are not yet in the mood for christmas. i feel like there is so much to do in our house that i don’t feel like decorating on top of the mess. windows need cleaning. balcony needs scrubbing. plants need to be replaced. stuff needs to be gotten rid of. linen drawer... omg don’t get me started on the linen drawer. well and as long as there are no house elves volunteering i guess we’ll just be stuck in this pre holiday-season-prep mess and the only thing that looks like christmas is the swan. shm. but let me at leat try: volunteering house elf, anyone? i pay in peanuts and clementines. #houseelf #wanted #hiring #momlife #swissmom #itsbeginningtolookalotlikechristmas #seasonsgreetings #wintervibrs #desperatehousewife

the cutest little - suitable for winter - cashmere pullover has moved in with us! it was a gift from elma’s uncle @romansky_ch from @bobolescargot. makes me happy just to look at it. in other news, i am so thankful for all the sweet comments and questions regarding my absence (here) that i got from you. i am looking at you mama friends. definitely feeling much better, thank you. so you can expect to hear a bit more around here again. we’re back hehehe (insert evil grin). #icecreamforthewin #backwithabang #babyootd #cashmeresweater #babycashmere #swissmom #mamablogger_ch

the end to a beautiful anniversary weekend. celebrating your wedding anniversary with a baby means you you order pizza and watch (half) a movie before passing out. having a baby also kind of means eating yoghurt for dinner, 5 nights a week. fine with me. love the new yoquas, with forest berries and less sugar, yet all the creaminess. try it, it’s delish. #guilty #nonvegan #yoghurtlover #emmi #yoqua #wenigerzucker #ad #celebratoryweekend #hearteyes #bokeh #creativeportraits #weddinganniversary #momlife #movienight #iloveyoumorethanpizza

this little mouse bear is standing (with help) and pulling herself up every chance she gets. temper tantrums when she doesn’t get the chance included. happy weekend! breathe in all the love and soak it up and make good memories. #tenmonthsgoingontwenty #babymilestones #creatingmemories #letthembelittle #childhoodmemories #childhoodunplugged #motherhoodunited #motherhoodunplugged #letthembelittle #letthekids #pixelkids #candidchildhood #itshappyhere #babyootd #kidsfashion #itshappyhere #theartofslowliving

the days are just flying by... my baby is ten months old - going on 21. really, you need to be super tough as a mom to not dissolve in tears about every new baby milestone. good knows i’m anything but cool and tough. the good thing is you can hold on to those baby stage memories a little longer with a foto book. i made this @ifolor album on my phone with the ifolor app while we were away in france. so convenient! and now i have all those precious memories of when elma was tiny in one place and can shed a secret tear looking at them whenever i feel like it. create your own in a few simple steps: use to code FORKFLOWER to get 30% off (valid through 20th november). #ifolor #fotobuch #ad #ifolormoments #holdthemoments #creatingmemories #weihnachtsgeschenk #visualdiary #photoaday #letthembelittle #swissmom #mamablogger #fotobook #creativeportraits

i’m in the mood for changing things up a little bit, to prepare for the winter season. a little more cosy and festive for the darker months. simply lacking ideas right now and then... there’s always something else to be done. so, we’re stuck with a mixture of neon, summery fun pom poms, a snowflake and an early, sneaky christmas stocking (that i love). #ohwell #letscalliteclectic #orboho #kidsroom #hometour #thatsdarling #simplethingsmadebeautiful #theartofslowliving #mamablogger #swissmom #homeinspo #winterbibes

the cutest little friends for miss e. hand made, crocheted bunnies with the tiniest clothes. you might know them as miffy and melanie? well, in holland they’re called nijntje and nina. @justdutch_ has even won a prize for them, they are that genius. and i must say they have quickly become a favorite in our house. #nijntje #miffy #miffylover #justdutch #handmade #babytoys #softtoys #crocheted #crochetedtoys #bunnylove #autumnleaves #fallingforfall #thatsdarling #fallvibes #swissmom #mamablogger_de

i like to hang on to hydrangeas for as long as possible. and i’m not picky - i especially welcome the fall kind, dry and imperfect, that has lived a little and tells a story. #flowerstagram #flowersofinstagram #weeklyblooms #hydrangeas #fallvibes #thatsdarling #celebratinglife #livefolk

is that a fairy there, behind the trees? might just be. certainly wears a pixie hat and is quite tiny. happy fall day. crispy leaves, warm colors, fall light and chilly mornings included. hygge, in a nutshell. we love you, fall. #fallingforfall #fallvibes #creativeportraits #candidchildhood #childhoodunplugged #childhoodmemories #creatingmemories #10monthsold #babygirl #pixelkids #childofig #babyootd #pixiebonnet #hygge #staycozy #thatauthenticfeeling #thatsdarling #shopsmall

@karamellzurich - dreamy place for kids clothes in downtown zurich. not only is every tiny piece of clothing a fashionista’s dream - i’d also love to copy/paste this corner to elma’s room. so cosy and perfect for a little bohemian, non? #kidsfashion #visitswitzerland #seemyzurich #visitzurich #zurichshopping #zürilove #karamellzurich #interiordreams #kidsroom #swissmom #mamablogger #mamablogger_ch

one cute christening outfit. certainly not a requirement, because we were blessed with so many non-material things to keep us feeling “full” for weeks. but to have something to keep forever and maybe one day pass on to the next generation isn’t so bad either. bespoke dress and bloomers in liberty print hand made by @mother_of_pearl_handmade. tiny peep toe moccs in dusty pink leather hand made by @chlinimoccs. #celebrateeverything #christeningdress #christeningoutfit #babyoutfit #babyootd #whatiwore #mamablogger #itshappyhere #flatlaytoday #handmadebabyclothes #babycoothes #pinkandwhite #babymoccs #babygirl #kidsfallfashion #shopsmall #shoplocal #babybloomers #libertyprint #creatingmemories #itshappyhere #thatsdarling #thehappynow

ten months today with our little monkey. and she has been the highlight of every single day. i am so incredibly happy, fulfilled, thankful and inspired. to be a mom - to be her mom - has made me so proud. leaving me stronger than ever before. and i have never enjoyed life more. time spent with what matters most to you, that’s what we ought to strive for. find that. and never not focus on it. a shoutout and a thank you to the lovely @all_inc who’s words today on this topic touched me deeply. #beautifulwomen #beautifulsoul #thankful #blessed #tenmonthsold #babywearing #keepthemclose #minutesbeforeshepassedout #sleepingbaby #mommyandme #motherdaughter #momlife #swissmom #mamalovesyou #youaresoloved #carpediem

elma’s apple parade. she’s our little apple. so it comes as no surprise that the verse we chose for her christening today has something to do with a tree (psalm 1, 1-3). i can’t wait for her to live a life knowing god. #christening #celebrateeverything #eventdesign #partyplanning #bashplease #thatsdarling #kidspartx #partysupply #appleparty #fallfeast #fallvibes #appledecor #partydecor #kidsparty #diyparty #inspiremyinstagram #becreative #partyfavors

i can't wait for the weekend. elma's christening. the first of many official celebrations in her life. we are making it a small, low key, fuss free family affair. with even a kids friendly location for lunch after (thank god). but a whimsy little dress for miss e was still a must. so i dreamed up something - and the wonderful emma of @mother_of_pearl_handmade made the dream - and more - come true. she designed this bespoke combination of ruffled blouse and matching bloomers. the pale pink fabric is from @libertylondon. you should just see the beautiful creation up close. i am so happy with the result. emma, you can be so proud of yourself! thank you, dear. #friendsoninstagram #instafriends #shopsmall #supportsmallbusiness #babybloomers #babyootd #christeningdress #palepink #motherhoodunplugged #unitedinmotherhood #lebenmitkindern #swissmom #babygirl #tenmonthsold #libertyprint #handmadewithlove #bespokedesign #bespokedress #motherdaughter #celebrateeverything #celebratelife #eventdesign #elmaclementine

m u l t i t a s k i n g & g i v e a w a y | tiny fingers grabbing stuff. not to be nostalgic (okay, actually yes) but in my much referenced food blogger past, i used to dream of this. having a tiny human around to grab food and fill my food shots with life. now, reality looks like this, somewhat: said human finally sits somewhere it's not in danger of killing herself and is distracted aka happy for, oh, maybe, two seconds? food (aka finger food for tiny human, including random healthy stuff plus the stuff she actually likes, like those whole wheat puffs 👌🏻) is in place - and only that. styling? never mind. ok, so get that brilliant shot now, quick! now, before human throws food and props everywhere. ahh, love multitasking and being in a hurry literally all the time now. #momlife... who knew it would be so much fun 👻 yes people, and i've also got a giveaway to celebrate! @bimbosan_schweiz is giving away a gift basket filled with goodies to one lucky (future) baby mama. all you need to do to participate is comment below on how you juggle those balls #momlife is throwing at you and multitask like an ace everyday. and that's it. winner will be chosen at random on saturday, 28th and contacted directly via pn. open to swiss participants. good luck! #ad #bimbosan #feelgoodbaby #fingerfood #babyledweaning #blw #babyfood #babycook #foodstyling #foophotography #swissfood #swissblogger #swissmom #snacktime #heresmyfood #storyofmytable #foodshare #foodieflatlay #flatlayoftheday #mamablogger #instamom #giveaway #babygiveaway #healthybaby #wettbewerb #verlosung #newmom

falling for fall. going outside every chance we get. be it sick or tired or both. the fresh air and a change of scenery is like magic. for body, mind and soul. #fallingforfall #fallvibes #fallcolours #colorsoffall #strollerstrides #morningwalk #lifewithkids #candidchildhood #childhoodmemories #inbeautyandchaos #itshappyhere

glad facebook reminds me of some "memories" from my food blogger past every now and then. sure love these scones. and i counted: there are no less than 5 different scones recipes on my blog. ha! the secret to a crumbly, fluffy scone is: lots of ice cold butter, quick preparation, not much kneading. a beautiful china plate like this one, "wild strawberries" from @wedgwood by @interio.ch, does the trick. out of the oven and whoosh - nom, nom, nom. #scones #happybaker #onthetable #ontheblog #heresmyfood #storyofmytable #foodblogger #foodstyling #foodphotography #swissblogger #feedfeedbaking #thekitchn #food52 #gloobyfood #foodgoals #foodgawker #eeeeeats #delish #foodiegram

little has more stripes than me in her wardrobe by now and that means something... i'm a little jealous. but when people go all out of the way and pick out clothes for you that are exactly your style: lucky. thank you so much @coop.ch #naturaline. miss e was super comfy in her stripey pants today! with a little white blouse and some moccs by @petitmai01 (see in stories) it was the perfect fall sunny weather outfit. okay, so you had me at stripes, granted. but that the pants are organic and fair trade sure doesn't hurt. no ad - just a pr sample we're really happy about. #prsample #naturaline #stripeslover #stripesforever #babyootd #ootd #fallvibes #swissmom #mamablogger #fairfashion #organicbabywear #organicfashion #organiccotton #childhoodunplugged

everything we love: stripes, ice cream (for breakfast), polka dots as pom poms, slow mornings playing together. with baskets full of surprises awaiting. the cute striped pants are organicly produced and fair. available @coop.ch by #naturaline - thank you so much for the gift! #goodmorning #slowliving #slowdowncollective #consciouslife #organicbabyclothes #ootd #babyootd #playtime #lifewithkids #swissmom #mamablogger #mynaturaline #coopnaturaline #fairfashion
