Friday. Phew. Not only have Nahla and Mummy traveled to Norway last Sunday to enjoy a few days of family-time, sunshine, shopping and holiday, but this busy mama has also had her hands (and head) full with articles, deadlines and research - oh, the life of a freelance journalist! So my lack of blog posts of late is purely down to the fact that I have not even had time to think about blogging, let alone find the time to do so. But; better times are ahead, I assure you!

The beauty of working from home is that you can decide to do your nails mid how-to-shrink-you-pores feature. And so I did. And today; if I may say so myself, I am more than a little impressed with myself! Glitter french mani? Check. I KNEW that Deborah Lippmann nailpolish would pay for itself one day.

Maybe it is the rather catastrophic summer weather we are having, or maybe it is being a journalist and always being a season ahead, but I cannot help but swooning over all the amazing fall/winter preview press releases that are flooding my inbox these days. The latest one? These amazing shots for H&M Home's upcoming interior season, where they are super-influenced by cowboys and indians, it seems, and rustic colours, navajo-patterns, leather and and horses feature heavily. How fab. How chic. How v. Isabel Marant-y of them!
... also inhaled somewhere between kitchen, car and playschool: Soy yoghurt, fresh orange juice, pineapple and melon - with a little coconut-oil and a handful of hempseed thrown in for good measure. YUM!

Mummy has successfully tricked Nahla into thinking raw-food bars are sweets. Mental high-five to me!
We have been to the Zoo again - and concluded that Nahla is not really all that into animals yet. Except for giraffes... For some strange reason.
Nahla got her very fist love-letter! From very cute Connor in her playschool. Daddy had minor melt-down as he now envisions his life a few years from now, having to fend off smitten teenage boys...
Nahla had a "bitch-stole-my-look" moment with the zebra in Dublin Zoo...
Pink dip-dye hair was a roaring success with our very pink-loving 2-year old...
Little Emine Sofie, who is on a week's holiday with us in Ireland, also got to enjoy the zoo - and the sleeping tigers...
And two little cousins are loving each others company and wake up every morning calling each other. Heart-melting stuff.
Oh, I remember the pack-the-hospital bag excitement in the late days of pregnancy! And watching Kourtney's cute check-list, I am feeling very inspired to want to do it all again soon! Congrats to Kourtney and Scott on the birth of little Penelope Scotland!
