Come what may

There are the good days and the one too many bad days.
We’ve not been sleeping well since Sunday night due to Channah’s fever peaking every 3am.
We would then take turns to rock her to sleep as she would cry piteously when we put her down on the bed. Keeping our fingers crossed that the medication have kicked in and tonight will be good again.

For all who are having a bad period, no matter the situation… there is always hope when we persevere through.

Keep it going strong, XO!

It’s been a cranky day for our darling Channah, crying a lot.
Her temperature raised at about 3am when I breastfed her – she was hot to touch.
Papa came to the rescue with a cool gel pad to paste on her forehead.
All 3 of us did not sleep since then.
Reason? Her little pearly white is breaking through. :)

On good days, she would be pa-pa-ing away, playing with her maracas along to papa singing latin melodies while shaking her butt, hip-hop-jumping to disco music by Earth Wind Fire, screaming in crescendos, grabbing at pages when I read to her, enjoying eating what we eat, drinking from our cup, obsessed with intricate patterns… quite a demanding little girl.

And here’s one of her analytical moments with her gold flats, traits from her papa and mama ;)

Swing along

Say hello to our new addition to our necklace collection, Balançoire (swing in French).

JeannieRichard Balançoire Necklace

We wanted to create a minimalist look with a quiet sparkle that still speaks volumes.
And using silver-lined glass beads was the perfect candidate that meets our expectations. Balançoire sparkles like a bar of diamonds, which measures a good size of 1″ wide and makes a sublime presence on your feminine collarbone with the silvery chain almost blending into your fair complexion, or glistening against your tan complexion. Whichever the complexion, Balançoire swings along to a melodious tune, adding a dash of spring fling to your day.

Balançoire is versatile and easily styles for a corporate day,

Nude + Black for Work

 

to a casual stacking necklace outfit,

Effortlessly Stylish

 

to an easy spring evening affair … the styling escapades are a myriad.

Easy Evening

Balançoire is available at our shop for $30 : www.etsy.com/listing/186384231

Light as a Cloud

The clouds come and go,
providing a rest for 
all the moon viewers
~ Matsuo Bashō (1644-1694)

A lofty haiku that eloquently describes our new bracelet, KUMO  (cloud in Japanese).
The poem conjures up a magical emotion within me, of celestial beings moon gazing from lofty clouds .

Golden small anodised aluminium jump rings hand weaved by Richard into the shape of an oriental cloud floats beautifully upon your wrist – adding an almost heavenly aura.

What I like about these jump rings are that they are light and they will never tarnish.
The golden hue glows radiantly and will look divine on fair to dark complexions.

Beautiful things

Those of you who have been following our blog know that I’ve been putting our blog to a transformation. At the current moment, its halfway there. With Channah around, getting a “5-min” job can become a few days challenge. Not saying that its a negative, I’d actually rather dedicate 24/7 to her if I could – I want to be her mama I would like to have had. That being said, her presence for the past 7 months definitely made an impact in our lives, and I’d like to make our blog a little more warm, a little more casual, a little more human :)

Like us, Channah is a night bird, she doesn’t go to bed until she spends some time with us over a movie. We watched The Secret Life of Walter Mitty last night, a delightful movie by Ben Stiller that we would definitely watch again when Channah is older. The strongest line that struck a chord with us was spoken by Sean Penn, “Beautiful things don’t ask for attention”. Don’t you think its poetic and true?

And here’s Her Cheekiness, sneaking up on me from under the blanket with her cheeky smile while we were watching The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.
