Allegra Isobel Bouw is 18 Months Old!

Monday, June 18, 2012

Ok so Allegra is now closer to 19 months than she is 18 months (I've been super slack ~ again!) BUT I just had to get this post in as 18 months (wow- a year and a half!) is I guess a little milestone. I pinch myself most days that this amazing little girl is mine. I am still in my element, every single day, as get to spend all my time with her. She is just so much fun to hang out with! You will see by the photos and video below that she continues to blossom into a gorgeous little person.

Finally big enough to wear the Burberry
 dress Daddy bought for her 1st Birthday
 all the way from London!
Outta my way Mum!
Look at my outfit Mumma ~such a fashionista! :P
Fun @ the park ~ still obsessed!
Look Mum, the bubba! :)
Cutie pie :)
Treating ourselves to some popcorn
@ the Sydney Aquarium! :)
This was Allegra's first time eating popcorn and
she absolutely demolished the bucket...
with a little help from me of course :)
Not guilty Mumma!
Helping me pick the patty cases for my
Birthday cupcakes :)
Allegra was a little under the weather when
this was taken ~ little angel x

Sick little monkey :(
Very happy about wearing her Ra Ra skirt to playgroup :) 

This video was taken over 3 weeks ago... our clever girl clearly knows all about Bubba Bouw... soooooo sweet! :)

Mumma love you darling, a bushel and a peck! x

Inspiration: Allegra's Big Girl Room!

Tuesday, June 5, 2012

Ok so I think I may have finally found my decor design mojo! You might remember that when I was pregnant with Allegra I was very enthusiastic about designing and creating a space for her that we would both love. Well I am most definitely the same the second time around... but... you will be disappointed to know that (just like with Allegra) we won't be sharing BB#2's gender when we do find out so that means any plans for the new nursery will remain under wraps... Sorry! hee hee

Allegra's current room will become BB's new nursery (it's closer to our room and much more practical) and we will be converting the current guest bedroom into Allegra's new big girls room! There are still too many goodies in Allegra's room to start from scratch so I will try and incorporate some old with some new. I have found a heap of divine items online that I am pretty sure I will be purchasing over the coming weeks (never fear, when I do I will definitely share) but for the time being I thought I would share a few images that have tickled my fancy and sent my decorating imagination running wild!


(images from decor pad)
Yep, as you can see I am still loving colour colour and more colour! Perfect for a toddlers room :)

I have my babysitters inlaws arriving tomorrow morning for a week and they are itching for some 1:1 time with Allegra... hopefully the perfect opportunity for me to have some time to myself and start tackling projects around the house! I'm determined to keep this mojo burning! x

Birthday Goodness!!!

Hiya and happy Friday! I said I'd be back to share my Birthday goodies with you all so here I am! I had a lovely low-key day with my little lady followed by a gorgeous dinner date with Mr B!
