Baby Moon Scrapbook: Mallorca!

posted on: Sunday, September 21, 2014

Hola amigos. Thank you so much for all the nice comments and best wishes. They mean the world to us. I'm currently on the week #31 of my pregnancy, and thank God, everything is going well. I'm also slowing down at work, taking one day off per week. The long weekends are doing wonders for me. I'm feeling more connected to my pregnancy, getting stronger for what it's coming.

The first week of August, to celebrate we were finally settled in our new apartment, we headed to beautiful Mallorca for a week to relax and re-charge batteries, after a pretty exhausting moving.

I thought I'd share some pictures of what it was supposed to be our last vacation as a childless couple. History in the making for the Schinnen-de Diego family :)

We rented a villa in Cala Murada, one of the spectacular little beach towns scattered around the East coast of the island. Karen, a Cologne-born lady and our landord for the week, was beyond adorable and made sure we felt home during our stay. Aside of taking a day trip to Palma, to meet one of my mother's best friends, Julita -it was wonderful- we spent the rest of the week relaxing at the beach or in the pool, enjoying wonderful sunsets and having great dinners. Exactly what I was looking forward to. Enjoy the pics!

Can't wait to share with you more highlights of the past weeks/ months, including a gender revelation, the evolution of my pregnancy from an emotional standpoint and a few more surprises.

Thanks so much for reading and my apologies for not being as present as I was before. Miss you tons!

Our Last Beach Day (As We Know Them)

posted on: Sunday, August 24, 2014


Hi my friends! Hope you guys had a great Summer -although it's not over yet! On this end, I'm happy to tell you that my pregnancy is going as well as expected. We're finally settled in our new appartment -well almost, still no Internet Connection...grrrr!!!- and could squeeze a week-long Baby moon in Mallorca.
The pictures above were taken during our last beach day in Cala Murada, which will always be remembered as our last beach day hanging as a childless couple -God willing!
My third trimestre is now in full swing, hitting next Thursday the week 28 mark.
I'm feeling happy, exhausted and grateful. All in one!
I owe you so many posts, visits and comments. My apologies. I hope to be able to make up for my absence soon.
Much love!

Inspirations To Customize Your Straw Bag

posted on: Monday, July 7, 2014

Hola amig@s! Hope you had a great weekend. Some of the questions that I got to be asked the most since I moved to Germany were if I miss Miami or how I'm coping with the cold winter. The reality is that the transition has been really smooth and have enjoyed and embraced the advantages and challenges of my new life from day one. BUT...when the Summer arrives, I really miss THE BEACH. 

We have ahead of us some pretty hectic weeks, involving the moving to a new apartment, work or doctor's appointments, but I believe that we'll finally be able to hit the Mediterranean shore at the beginning of August. More details to come. Fingers crossed. 

In the meantime, I've been "Pinteresting" my way around embellished straw bags. I got one last year, in Asturias, and I'm thinking about giving it a facelift for our upcoming trip. Here you have my top inspirations. Enjoy the images.

How do you like straw bags or embellished straw bags for that matter?

Have a great week!
