...and the world smelled of roses. The sunshine was like powdered gold over the grassy hillside.” ⁠

In-between days of magic that filled my heart with soul food.⁠

I have SO much to do in the next 24 hours before I head to a wedding and then off to the beach for a week - but to be honest all I wanna do is nap! 😂 Who feels me?! #mylifebythebay

Quiero confesarte algo…🌪️
.
.
Quizá hace tiempo pensabas que lo lograrías todo. Pero, ¿qué es todo? Creías que lo sabías todo. Inocente de ti. Nunca dejarás de aprender.

Según va pasando el tiempo no tenemos las mismas falsas creencias que la sociedad nos impone. No seguimos las estadísticas. Intentamos romper las reglas establecidas de esta burda sociedad.

La Bea de hace unos pocos meses hubiera dicho que para qué tomar responsabilidades si total el éxito llegará en cualquier momento, que con perseverancia y trabajo todo llega. Sólo hay que saber esperar.

La nueva versión de Bea confiesa que tiene miedo al éxito. Tiene miedo a muchas cosas. Sin embargo, tiene muchas ganas de salir adelante y reunir fuerzas para ser más valiente y dejar fluir sus emociones.

A veces no todo es lo que parece y no nos damos cuenta cuan equivocados estamos.

Piensa un segundo y respóndeme a esta pregunta: ¿crees que conseguirás los grandes premios de la vida? 🤔

Algunos de nosotros quizá soñamos con ganar el Nobel, el Pulitzer, los Goya, el Premio Planeta o cualquier gran premio que se tercie.

Pero nada más lejos de la realidad no todos lo queremos o quizás sí. Desde pequeños nos dicen que soñemos en grande. Que pidamos un gran deseo y que se cumplirá. Y no siempre es así.

Lo que quiero decir es que todo podemos elegir cuales son nuestros pequeños placeres de vida. Un beso de buenos días o de buenas noches de alguien especial. Un helado de chocolate de esos que te recuerdan a instantes de tu infancia. Un bonito atardecer en tu lugar favorito. Un café con alguien que hace tiempo que no ves. Un abrazo que cura tus penas cuando más lo necesites. Una noche a la luz de la luna y con la lumbre de una fogata. Un paseo en barco en un bonito día de verano. Conocer nuevos lugares y nuevas culturas. Sonreír y disfrutar de un día de desconexión. Un baño en el mar.

No te preocupes por querer ganar los grandes premios de la vida. Disfruta de sus pequeñas delicias. Hay muchísimas para todos nosotros, más de las que crees.💡
.
. 
Abre tu mente a nuevos horizontes y nuevos retos. Comienza a disfrutar ya de la vida.💙 .

Tomorrow is Saturday, and that means comfy pajamas, hide all the room clutter in a basket & shove it under the bed, put laundry away, enjoy a hot cup of coffee, and indulge a plate of at least 6 of these pancakes ~ made with oatmeal, millet & buckwheat, topped with fresh cream & aunt's homemade apricot jam ~ grown up morning status! 👖👕🧺🥞🍴☀️

I'm loving this new painting so much and all of the new techniques I uncovered along the way as I painted her. She's inspired by flowers and a deep love of color, a reminder to have the courage to be you and be bold. I'm calling her "Wanderlust", oil paintsticks, acrylics, acrylic inks, paint pen and pencil on canvas, 11" x 14" #JulietteCraneArt // Original Available. Email me at info@juliettecrane.com for details.

Nie używam photoshopa, więc wybaczcie mi tą naturalną naturalność z bliznami i siniakami😆 ale tak wyglądają moje nogi przez większość sezonu letniego😂 no może, często nie zakładam takich skarpetek, bo po drodze pewnie zgubiłabym niejedną parę😜 To co? Mamy weekend!? Kto już się cieszy? Kto świętuje? Ja troszku mniej zadowolona, bo to ostatni weekend przed powrotem do pracy🤦🏻‍♀️
Ulubionych przyjemności na resztę piątkowego dnia moi mili😘🥂

WELCOME TO THE WORLD ✨ Dorothy Luna May Pitts ✨

Made of stardust and wishes and magical things, our baby girl honestly couldn’t be more perfect! Our little miracle 💕 ‘Dottie’ was born on 18th July at 5.51am after a rather tiring 30 hours, weighing 2.725kg/6lbs and measuring 49cm.

The last couple of days have passed in a total blur, and I no longer have any idea, or care for what day or time it is!

I created the pregnancy video in my previous Instagram post with the intention of uploading it before she arrived...but I think I might have to get used to the fact that my life will now run at least a day or so behind schedule!! So thank you to everyone for your comments on it - I was reading them all whilst recovering yesterday!

It has been an emotional few days but in the best of ways, and obviously all totally worth the exhaustion! I can’t believe I grew such a beautiful being, and tonight we get to take her home!

Needless to say Bea is delighted that her baby sister finally ‘popped out’ and is absolutely besotted. She’s also already telling me I’m doing everything wrong!! Let the adventures of Bea and Dottie commence... 💕

I have two very exciting shoots this month, one will take me to the UK and the other is much closer to home.

Here is a sneak peek from inside the atelier of
@swoboda_anne who creates bespoke shoes. Her work is seriously delicious in buttery soft leather sourced from the best tanneries in Europe.

Can't wait to share more!

I’ve read a flurry of REALLY GREAT books recently and I’m so excited to share them all over the next few weeks! First up, #Mothership by @francescasegal - with big thanks to @vintagebooks for sending me this proof!

Francesca Segal was excited to be pregnant with twin girls, and was happy and healthy until she suddenly went into labour at twenty nine weeks. This, her memoir, is the story of what followed in the immediate aftermath: told with brutal honesty, painstaking detail, and heartbreaking tenderness, we follow the stunned new parents and their tiny, vulnerable daughters through the days, weeks and months they spend in the new-natal unit. I was particularly touched by the way Francesca writes about the other mothers she met there, and how incredibly obvious she makes it that their support kept her going. I don’t know much about prematurity, so this ordeal was something of an eye opener for me. The repeating refrain that “they just weren’t ready for the world yet” really haunted me. A moving and important book.

I hope that as I parent I am teaching my own children to start accepting themselves as a whole now instead of just picking a part of who they are and loving only the socially acceptable ones. .
.
I know that they will face struggles and doubts and experience the loneliness and joy and misery and overwhelming happiness that we all do in life. I just hope that they utilize the tools I’m desperately trying to convey to them when the doubt creeps in. .
.
I want them to see the beauty there is when you accept yourself wholly. .
.
When you see your flaws as a stamp of your uniqueness. The thing that sets you apart and makes you, you instead of hiding it away and shoving it in a box so you can become them. .
.
It all comes down to confidence and the ability to pretend to have it until you do. .
.
To know that no matter what flaws you think you may have you still matter and are still needed in this world. .
.
You need to be you to make this world work. We need the weird and the strange and the plain and the boring and the average and the extreme. We need it all. .
.
Don’t hide your flaws, flaunt them and be proud that you got them in the first place. .
.
Because damn they are wonderful.

Photography has taught me a lot of things. One thing I’ve learned over and over is that every family is different. What they look like. What they value. How they love each other.
💕
There’s usually one constant though. The urgency to remember. To hold close the moments that are so dear and fleeting. 💕
That’s why I feel so fortunate to be able to photograph families. To document their love and connection. It’s a pretty important job if you think about it. To be able to freeze a moment in time and allow it to live on forever.
💕
Even when the season you’re in might not feel worthy of being photographed. Think of this time as just a chapter in your story. Each chapter is part of your journey and it wouldn’t be complete if you didn’t record it. And that doesn’t mean you have to share it with the world. Take the photo for you. Embrace the imperfection and tuck it away somewhere for a rainy day. 💕
This is just as much a reminder for me as it is for you. The photos I take help sear the memories onto my heart. If I didn’t have them, the memories would fade. The details would become fuzzy. Even the times I want to forget.
💕
So here’s my little PSA for the weekend as you’re out and about with your families. Take your camera out. Even if it’s just your phone. Snap a photo. Don’t wait for the perfect moment. Just do it.

I was just listening to a podcast I became obsessed with lately (@jennakutcher shoutout to you), and a subject I was thinking about lately so much was mentioned and I wanted to share a few thoughts about it. It's investing in yourself. .
The last few months I have been digging so hard through the endless base of information all over the internet, searching, researching, learning, reaching out to people who are creating content, buying online courses and other resources and going through every possible piece of free material I could lay my hands and eyes on, from e-books, books, webinars, podcasts, youtube videos, pdf's and so on, and all about online marketing, SEO, using Pinterest and e-mail marketing, and I had a blast. Yeah, I know. Sooo nerdy. And I SOOOO enjoyed it and I still do. I have found a new passion in it and I'm soo excited about implementing this all in my upcoming projects. I feel I have improved so much in this area that I had zero knowledge only a year ago, and that time will show it was all worth my energy - time and money. How do you feel about this? Do you invest in your growth by purchasing services and/or products by other entrepreneurs? Do you feel it's worth your time and money? Do you feel you're worth investing in? I would SO love to hear from you on this! Let's dive a bit into a conversation. Hop on!
.
*And also shoutout to @zzorulee who's IG story inspired me to choose this place for our week-long getaway. Such a lovely little island Rab. Thank you for that! .

Vaca has always been a special time for our family. I feel like with the hustle and bustle of everyday life I don’t get to enjoy these two as much as I should. When I’m on vacation I feel like I’m given to freely serve and love on them without the pressures of anything else. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Yeah. We still fight. Yeah we still have arguments. But it’s nice to enjoy them at our favorite place in our little world. The beach 🏖

😱😱😱😱 Ma che fai!!! Si rovineranno tutti!!! E invece no! Lavare le mie creazioni è un'operazione che faccio periodicamente! Capita che con i mercatini, umidità, vento, stando semplicemente all'aria aperta si sporchino un po', ma niente paura! Possono essere lavati con acqua e sapone! Potete farlo anche voi perchè i materiali non scolorano, anzi tornano a essere più brillanti che mai!😎

• Pregnancy can change your body, forever. I think we’re getting better as a society at acknowledging the physical nonsense: Your feet may get bigger and flatter, you may never again be able to laugh without peeing a little, you may grow way more hair and then it may fall out into your bathtub drain and through your fingers over the course of your first month after giving birth. What’s harder to talk about is the shit it can dredge out of your heart. “It's this whole chemistry of emotions,” Alanis said. “Hormones and chemicals that are just coursing through your body. It [can] be triggering, or flashbacking, or re-traumatizing.” • words by @nicole.cliffe interviewing @alanis for @selfmagazine • beautifully out-of-focus portrait of me by Roman James 💛🌿✨

“Some beautiful paths can't be discovered without getting lost.” - Erol Ozan 🌊

Reliving the most magical morning of Ibiza today. I made this little BTS video from my shoot with the lovely & amazing @del_mao as a special memory of this day, when the little jewel cove of Cala Nova was quiet and glittering with the early morning light. We spent 2 hours exploring, hiking, skimming the shore of this beach 5 minutes from our villa, my heart full of all kinds of feelings - wonder at the still beauty of this little island, bliss from the warmth and invigorating energy surrounding me, and clarity on what makes me feel my best. It’s amazing what a little me time can do for us, no matter where we are. 💫

This weekend I’m looking forward to a little morning beach walk, an awesome @kidsfashionfair at @thecoopsf with my favorite SF @fashionmamas (it’s tomorrow + open to the public if you rsvp!), and a mini reunion with our LA fam that traveled with us to Barcelona. We’ll be on the hunt for some paella and tapas all weekend long! 🦐 🥘 
Weekend roll call! Share with us what you’re looking forward to this weekend and any awesome Spanish restaurant Recs in your city! Here’s to a wonderful weekend. ✨ #dametraveler #sheisnotlost #passionpassport

Top #littlestoriesofmylife posts

The first thing I did was open the windows. It is uncommon for a sky to weep a summer, but in the quiet shadows of the farmland there I was, looking at my soaked bicycle below, and all the shattered ideas I placed for the afternoon. I checked the old clock on the foyer, a little bit pass four, if I’m not mistaken. Is there still time to take a jump in the river after this pour? - I questioned - after all the water would at least be warmer. The delicate perfume of the sweet pea woke me up from this conundrum. It is a hidden harvest, this one, that neglects the fruit and focus on the flower. If venturing outside was out of the question at that moment, I might as well bring all that joy to that refuge I was under. The weather suddenly complied, amusing me from the lack of control in any given situation. A bright sun lighted up the room, dried the leafs and grass in the gardens. My inner child screamed - to the river! And there remained, on that kitchen table, the fleeting infatuation for flowers in this never ending summer. Nothing out of the ordinary, if I must be candid.

Yesterday I took some time out from my day to go and meet a fellow freelancer for coffee ☕️ Although it was a pretty busy day and I had a lot to get through I still prioritised getting out of the house for an hour, building connections and creating the opportunity to talk about running your own business with someone in the same boat.

I know that taking time out from being IN your business and doing the work doesn’t always seem like the most sensible decision but it can definitely be the most rewarding ✨ 📸 @amifordphoto
