28 delightful things for your December!

Paul & Paula: 28 delightful things for your December!

Ok, I know it is not Friday (yet!) but Thursday will do beautifully this time around too. Because I saved so much great stuff for this list, you will need an extra day.

And I am happy to finally share all of it and get this out to you… this may very well be the longest Friday List on Paul & Paula to date!

By the way, I am planning to write a few things that are on my chest next week. A few life updates…

I hope that I will find the time and the perfect moment, because I always need to ‘right’ moment to get started.

15 happy things for your October!

Paul & Paula 15 things for October
Oh hello! At the moment I am not so sure how I feel about Fridays. On the one hand, I am happy for the weekend to start. On the other hand, I feel like time is literally rushing through. Another week has gone by… waaaaahhh…

I cannot wait to slow down again and breathe. We do have a really great holiday coming up for the Winter break (Dec/Jan) and I just love the pre-excitement before going away. This time even more, because we all really need a break. To relax, to spend time together (slow and quality) and do not follow any wake-up calls, appointments, and other commitments.

How about you?

I do love autumn very much and this year we are lucky to see some sun shining through the pretty leaves as well. But I can also see that this is always a rather hard period for the children. Between the middle of August when they went to school and the very end of October – it is a long period of school weeks. On top the days are getting shorter, the mornings are dark and a little chilly. Everyone is tired. Do you feel the same?

Nevertheless, I have gathered quite a few cool finds as well as reads for you. I hope that you will enjoy them:

Beautiful kids bedding and home accessories from Australia

Paul & Paula: Beautiful kids bedding and home accessories from Australia
This week I showed you some really cool play corners. For your children to play and to have fun. Another thing that really makes a difference in a children’s room is the bedding. Beautiful, soft bedding helps with sweet dreams but it also changes the whole look and feel of the space.

A child’s bedroom is a sanctuary. A place where they can dream, sleep and play.

I just found this Australian brand called Hiccups and their Linen House for Kids range that has your child’s room covered. They have colourful and trendy designs that kids love, and parents would want for their own bed too.

You can find kids bedding, storage bags, cushions as well as beach towels (It is an Australian company after all!) in all kind of sizes – including European sizes – and enchanting designs.

My absolute favourite is this dotted set – so pretty and lovely.

There are also some boho inspired items such as the beautiful and huge macramé that is interspersed with wooden beads throughout. Some cool pillows or pom pom throws…

A few things for August (Friday List)

A few things for August (Friday List)

I moved my desk to France and isn’t a new scenery always a welcome change?

We arrived on Sunday late and had our dose of crepes, creme de marron, supermarket stroll and real cider straight away. Oh and a ‘croissant aux amandes’ for me too…

We are in Brittany which is relatively cool compared to the temperatures of the rest of France! (which means: very often we had rain drizzles and temps around 18 when the rest of the country had sun and 28C. No kidding! We which the ‘meteo’ and the whole country was nice and sunny and then one grey spot. One. Just here! But anyway… this year we are just happy with the weather and that we can be outside all the time!)

And enough about France and off to my finds from the last weeks, lots of goodies. As usual!

When we are back from holidays we will do a family project. One full week of vegan eating. We are always interested in food, nutrition and healthy living. And we just watched another set of documentaries and I just decided that we will do this. Ha. Talked with the kids one morning and everyone is in, without much discussion actually. Now, I will report… so stay tuned. If you are living vegan as a family I am happy to hear from you… maybe it is just our beginning :)
This article, it is a long one – is really good when you want to know more about food:
