i should have titled this post “the waiting game” as our baby is overdue and i’m just, well, waiting. man! waiting is boring. limbo is boring. i know i should appreciate the quiet time and “catch up on my sleep” (???) and all that jazz – but it feels weird to not be working, not be doing anything – just waiting…

come on baby!

also, i have a cold. so many hours have been spent lying on the couch, listlessly, blowing my nose and browsing the internet on my phone while i watch The Office for the billionth time. and while i am supposed to be on “maternity leave” i thought i may as well share some cool new finds in a classic old these things. the next time i post we will probably, hopefully, have a baby! 👶🏼

the new First Rite collection is very nice. also i need that haircut.

  1. Come on, baby! Sending you good vibes on that end. Love the Greetings from Mars photos.

  2. good luck with your upcoming delivery!
    That hospital gown/tunic/dress thingie is pretty but will be useless because there’s no way to get the boobs out (and there will be a lot of having the boobs out if you are breastfeeding)

  3. My mum always swore that a good curry will hurry along any late arrivals! Also, there are strategic pressure points a good pregnancy masseuse can work on to encourage labour – kind of a win win situation!

  4. Baby was due May 4th so I am anxiously waiting with you! I can’t believe it’s only been 2 days – feels like a whole week has passed just waiting & waiting…..

  5. Thank you for including my fluffy pillows! Really cool gallery, in love with your pics! You totally made my day!

  6. Sleep while you can, for real!
    Something inside you changes when you have a baby, even when they are sleeping, it’s hard to sleep!

    Thai Green curry and a long walk on the promenade worked twice for me! Hang in there!

  8. C’mon, baby! My first was eleven days overdue (such a nice way of putting what was a frustrating time of Twin Peaks-athons, plentiful chilli rich thai curries – which didn’t work at all, alas – and mad bouncing on a yoga ball) so I know your battles. Good luck! (And great sources of distraction you’ve found, there).

  9. Thank you for including my jewellery line! Super happy to scroll past and see that <3 <3

  10. So curious about Metaformose. Do the items stand up in real life?

  11. EEps!! Please! I must know where to get the blue Laves Les Mains print??!! I love it and would be PERFECT for my bathroom!

  12. That LA home is utterly gorgeous. It doesn’t look overly pristine and that’s what I love about it.
