#ProjectMilf Monthly Review


This is the first entry for our monthly reviews of #projectmilf and this entry is going to be very short.


I threw my fitness and healthy eating habits into the bin as soon as I left Canada. I haven’t weighed myself in about two weeks and I don’t mind. Being on holidays has ruined my goodwill. But I promise I am looking into what I eat and from tomorrow I am going to take AOI on long walks.


Nothing to report


My novel is with the professional editor and she is going to start working on it starting July.

Hello There!


{Sorrento, June 2013}

Long time, eh.

Nearly three weeks off from my blog. I miss it but I need it. But right now I need to find a way to de-stress so bad and blogging is my way of sanity.

I am finally alone after nearly two weeks on our 2013 European holidays. Hubby and AOI are out for a walk with my in-laws, one of my twin sister-in-law and her two girls {one toddler and a baby} and the two little dogs.

Right now, the house is quiet enough for my thoughts to function. Outside the sound of the seagulls sooth me and I feel peace within.

I have so much to do on my blog. First I will be announcing the winner of Shabby Apple giveaway and also I have to share with you some photos from my holiday so far.

Though everything is going smoothly, I miss my routine in Canada and the precious time I can dedicate to my blogging and writing.

I have to sort out the photos I took in Italy, until then un ciao da Positano, Campania, ItalyOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA         OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA         OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA         OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA         OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I Had A Plan…

june blog planAs you can tell from about, this month I had planned topics to discuss on my blog. However my body and mind want something completely different. DISCONNECTION from personal blogging. My body wants to relax and my mind want to soak up books I’ve been meaning to read in ages and blogs I need to catch up in reading.

I am really fighting against this state of being but, unfortunately, I know I can’t win.

For instance, I’ve been reading my bloggy-friends blog entries but it takes me days to write a comment and I am so sorry about that.

As much as I don’t want it, I am taking a break from blogging. I want to focus on reading blogs, books and watching music, dance and culinary programs. Also I want to focus on packing for Europe.

In the meantime I am leaving you with this awesome giveaway {I am very excite about it, so please enter for the chance to win a Shabby Apple $50 gift card}Shabby Apple Giveaway

Arrivederci {see you soon}!!!

Shabby Apple Giveaway

I am in the process of organising my summer wardrobe and looking through my clothes I realised that I’ve been wearing too many jeans. I also concluded that jeans or trousers don’t suit my new body shape. I must be bold and donate some of my size Small and Medium outfits, because truth is I am  not going to fit into them anytime soon and the more I see them the more I get depressed.

Most important thing I am packing my suitcases {Emily and Faith and Shanique are coming too} and I have to decide what to wear during this trip in Europe. I want to be like a lady, wearing more dresses and skirts that fit my frame. This reminds me, once upon a time I was into vintage/retro and bohemian style but I lost my sense of style over the years. However, last summer I decided that to flatter my new shape I had to go back to my bohemian style. I bought new things but this year don’t fit anymore. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

This time instead of feeling bad about my new weight, I am looking to find new vintage and bohemian outfits. I really like Shabby Apple, the online dress boutique that specializes in vintage and retro dresses. I really feel like few things in my wardrobe to vamp it up a little.

More of less this is how I envisage my 2013 European/summer wardrobe. Click vintage dresses to view these collections {also, don’t forget to check out below to see the giveaway details}

Firmoo June Classic & Chic Models - Free for New Customers

Hello ladies! Firmoo has updated their New Arrivals for June. Moreover, they are available for Firmoo First-Pair-Free-Program. Now you may have the chance to get yours for FREE!

Oversize frame:

Oversized glasses have won wide following and endorsement from celebrities due to their flamboyant and bold impression. The large frames and sleek lenses make that superstar vibe instantly as you put them on. If you want to have a new look, oversized frames definitely worth a try.



Rectangle frame:

Rectangular glasses are the most common style you can see on the street. For a simple look, you can never go wrong with a pair of rectangular framed glasses. They are of traditional style, very charming. Sleek and slim rims outline a precise profile.



Vintage style:

We are always fond of wearing stylish and chic glasses but we often ignore one particular type-vintage glass. Sometimes it's just so cool to go back in time and have a feel of what fashion was wayback. They are also the perfect way to complete your vintage outfit.



Nerdy style:

A medium sized, round eye frame shows a charmingly studious look. If you want that geeky or school girl type of look, then take a look at the below nerdy style, though simple, these are very stylish and classic too.



Still not sure that eyewear can be fashionable? Then check out how some of these fashionistas style them:

Week 22


{I snapped this picture on 25 May in the park at the zoo during a festival}

I can’t believe how tiring this week was. Hubby had a conference to attend to so I was left alone most nights taking care of AOI after a very hectic day.

The proof of how tired I was is the lack of photos in my week 22 folder, I mean I have only 15 photos. For a photography lover as me, I was super surprised when I decided to upload few pictures today just find 15 photography of poor qualities as well.

Two days stood out for me were Monday and Tuesday.

Monday: I was so tired and had no desire to do anything. Feeling guilty I tried to have an early nap but AOI wouldn't collaborate. So we had snack, had a change of diaper and went for a quick walk. It took me about 10 minutes walk for AOI to fall asleep.

In the afternoon I wanted AOI to play in the garden but the mosquitoes are back in business. I was going to put the mosquito cream on but AOI freaked out when a plane flew by – she is freaking out too much about noises that sound like planes passing by.

Tuesday: I made the biggest mistake to undo my braids instead of going to the French playgroup. AOI was cranky most of the day. Well, she woke us up at 8am after trying to let us get out of bed for one hour.
After I washed my hair and had a shower, we had snack and then went for a walk. She didn't sleep, so we stopped at a playground. After 10 minutes I decided it was time to go for another walk. She slept 10 minutes later.

In the afternoon we went to have AOI's 18month vaccination. My heart was in pain to see her hurt so much after the injections. She was so delicate and mummy's cuddle. My heart felt like stopping every time she cried "Mummy, male" (mummy, pain).

The rest of the week went by smoothly.

Wednesday, I planned the day. We went swimming in the morning. She had a good nap and then we went to the mall before heading to C's house for a play date in playground. Thursday was last day of the indoor playgroup. The kids could feel something in the air because they were wild than ever. Thank goodness nobody cried in the end. Friday C and her mummy joined us at the swimming pool and we talked about potty training and teeth brushing {these are few of the greatest conversations we have when in each other’s company}.

Now that ‘school’ is over for AOI we will enjoy our time with some friends we made during the indoor playgroup period by going to the paddling pool, AOI will ride her bike in the house {she wanted a bike so much, but can’t ride yet so she just pretends paddling in the house}. Also I am so looking forward to our trip to Italy and Great Britain new week.


{I want to ride my bicycle}

I wish everyone a great week 23.

xoxo, TOI

Portrait of My Child #6

Hello June, I want to welcome you to 2013. You mark the half of the year. I know I am going to enjoy you even more than your other friends. I hope many of you are having great 2013 as much I am still having.
Today I want to share portraits of my child from the previous month. Many of you have seen some of these pictures but they are my favourite from May.
chilling and reading time
Cooking pizza for dinner
Walking with daddy over the threshold
Playing "hide and seek” with her stuffy friends
"A portrait of my children, once a week, every week, in 2013."
I want to capture precious moments this year, for this reason I am taking part in various photo projects.
