Sometimes the road down goes perfectly well with the little one, which means he falls asleep immediately and M and me can have a nice chat or I can take the opportunity to catch up on some sleep. But other times it's just an inferno in the car and Alexis hates it. It takes entertaining, in the approximately amount of three hours, to a different level and the fantasy has to go beyond singing and showing different cars or cows outside the window. Last night was one of those times, God was I exhausted after sitting turned back all way down, singing and amusing my little son and just trying to keep him as happy as possible until we arrived. A big glass of wine would have been perfect after that sort of Friday night exhibition.

Beautiful, beautiful little boy of mine.
I'm indulging the last couple of month with just the two of us, where it sometimes
feels like only you and me exist in the whole universe.
Soon you'll become a big brother and I'll become a mother of two.
Things will obviously change, but you will always be my first born, my miracle
who came from nowhere and surprised me like no one have never done.
You taught me what love, real unconditional love, really is and
you brought emotions into my soul and heart that I've only touched on the surface before.
What an adventure we have in front of us, you and me.
My biggest gift in life and the strongest source of true happiness.
Now I'll pack, eat lunch, take a nap when Alexis is napping, do the last couple of errands and then wait for my man to get back from work and I'll hopefully sleep in the car back down to Geneva. The last trimester of the pregnancy is stepping in and I do remember that the tiredness gets back during this time. So boring and frustrating, I hate feeling like I'm on a sleeping pill all day long, but it seems like it's the price one have to pay when creating small princes inside of me. Blink.

As a pregnant woman at the moment, the selection is somewhat limited to a few dresses of mine and a few models that suits properly when finding a new one. It's so much that needs to fit and most of all it needs to enhance the more curvy body and make us feel beautiful, elegant yet with that important originality.
I fell in love with the Primavera pattern when the SS13 collection of byMalina was presented, yet my favourite model was in reality impossible to squeeze myself in to, no matter how much I loved it. But then I found this model, maybe not a classic Stina-dress, but very pretty and even prettier in reality I realised when I got a DHL delivery at home yesterday with it's romantic inside.
The dress is, as all of the designers dresses, made of pure silk, an easy and liberating fabric for all occasions in life. I've had them in my normal state, pregnant ... I love how the textile is blowing in the wind when walking, how it just switches around the legs and creates that dramatic effect, sometimes needed in life. Look here, here and here to understand what I mean. I have a few of her dresses by now.
The weather forecast for the weekend though is disappointing me big time and I have to have a plan B. The temperatures says around 10°C and it's going to rain, rain, rain. The old Chateau we're going to is hopefully heated up, else I need to wear something else unfortunately. But I've fortunately have more excuses to wear this dress in that case, but let's hope for the best.
But I know there's a lot of parties, student balls, graduations, weddings etc, etc in front of us all - and a outstanding dress, one that will be used a lot in the future and has something exceptional to it; can be hard to find so I'm here to help YOU!
Go to byMalina, find a stunning model, choose the fabric and when paying, put the code: STINA and you'll have 20 percent off any purchase! How about that!?!!!?
Happy shopping and enjoy all the celebrations this summer! You'll by far be the one best dressed!
If you want help with any questions about size, fabric etc, please write them in the comment field and I'll do my best to give you my empirical experience!
See you soon!

With all of this said, it's also a material who need some extra love and care though cashmere is delicate and need to be washed in a very sensitive hand wash program or wool program in a separate washing bag, but most preferably taken to the dry cleaner. Every time you've used it, you should let it air in some fresh wind or just open in the bathroom, to keep its freshness.
I have the great opportunity to give ALL my readers 10 percent on ALL things from Soft Goat for 10 days if you use the code; Stinaauer
Please click your way there and pamper yourself with some lovely cashmere! They ship all around the world! Last time I got these ones.

The whole purpose this time for the stay in Geneva, was my man's birthday. He though we would have a easy family dinner in peace and quite, but the day after we had arranged a surprise garden party for him as I wrote about before. We had invited friends from different places and cities, ordering the cake, fixing the decoration and M's parents had been cooking the food and prepared what I couldn't, being in Zürich.
So this is some pictures from the warm and lovely party, which turned out even better then we hoped for. The people are so wonderful and it was a laid back, fun, kid-friendly and just perfect environment and we even had luck with the weather which is so important when being outside.
M was so touched and so happy and humble, It was a joy to give him this day filled with some of the best of people. Later that night we gathered some friends and drove into the Geneva city to eat at the Pizza institution Da Paolo. They have the best pizza I've ever had and If you're around, you can't leave without going to this superb place and indulge yourself. When I drove home I was almost falling asleep in the car, and after this weekend I'm very tired but it was so worth it! Happy Birthday again my Love and THANK YOU everyone for helping, keeping the secret and for coming!!!
