Selecting the right art work for your kids' room can get overwhelming. There are so many options out there, it can get confusing. Below, I created a gallery wall with some of the prints I love, keeping my girls (ages 5.5+ and 4) in mind. We are very happy with the current wall art in girls' shared room, however, when we are ready to switch around the artwork, I'll definitely be using this for inspiration. I especially love the print in blue and the women on bicycles.  I'll be doing a series of more detailed blog posts about creating a unique gallery wall so stay tuned.

Kids lifestyle blog: Introducing chic and minimal designs by Annice


Minimalist designs with great personality is how I would describe this beautiful collection by this Barcelona-based brand Annice. 

Architect and mom of three, Ines Rivaya founded Annice to explore a new way of dressing kids. The simple, sleek designs and the intricate pleats and folds add such a unique dimension to the collection. Her formal training in architecture definitely has an influence on the designs - conception of lines, proportions, volumes, and details.





We love that the collection is so clean, and, at the same time, has sophisticated details that make it playful and stylish for kids. The collection truly embodies "less is more." 



It's so hard to pin point the favorites: mandarin collar dress, long sleeved dress, the pleated dress or the chic breezy tops - we love them all.  I am definitely getting a few pieces for the girls. The collection is available online at Annice

Our wicked fun tulip farm adventure



On a nice spring day in early May, the girls and I headed to the Wicked Tulips Flower Farm after school. The farm was about an hour drive from our place. It was an afternoon full of exploration, picking some beautiful tulips, and enjoying the breathtaking views of the farm. 





N has been learning all about the life cycle of the lady bug at school. She and her friends have been really into finding lady bugs and little worms, and it's amazing how easily they spot these creatures from their vantage points. She was clearly more into bugs than flowers but that's all right. Picking flowers later on was way more enjoyable than just watching them.



The girls chased butterflies, talked about the signs of spring, and their favorite colors of tulips. The day was a little chilly when we first left home, but the sun came out soon after we reached the farm and one by one, all clothing layers started to come off.



The weather continued to be nice and warm and soon the farm was bustling with visitors and tulip lovers. Children were running around, people were picking all varieties of tulips, and there were beautiful colors and happy, springy vibes everywhere!




We first spent time in the 'viewing only' section of the farm, and gradually walked over to the picking area. We soon realized that the little wicker baskets were so cute to carry, however, not too practical for the girls so we switched over to the red buckets. And then the picking fun began...




It was such a lovely experience. This was not only the girls' but also my first visit to a tulip farm. I love our random little adventures. We brought back a big bunch of tulips, and the girls couldn't stop talking about the farm for days.
