WEEKLY INSPIRATION : COSY PIJAMAS

My kids love having pijama’s days. To be honest, I don’t know where they got that from as both Mr B and I are totally presentable in the morning. I mean, fully showered, fully dressed and even some makeup on… it is important to be presentable for breakfast, to start the day prepared… yeah, right… there is nothing better than breakfast in pijamas and messy hair (this last detail doesn’t seem to be optional… my hair is just crazy in the mornings).

The weather has just turned and the cold seems to be here to stay. We are officially entering into pijama’s season. That time of the year where the kind of pijamas you are wearing will determine the day you will have. Ok, I might have taken it too far but you know what I mean…

For a lazy day watching TV by the fire, animal onesies are a must.

Now, these pijamas might prove uncomfortable in bed, with their tails and ears, so a sexier onesie (because there is totally such a thing, right?).

But in fairness, bed is not just for lazing around., I also like to read in it – snuggled under the blanket, kindle in hand and loads and loads of coffee.

Just because you are in pijamas it doesn’t mean that you can not be stylish

Whatever style you’d prefer, enjoy your lazy day, put your feet up, cuddle up and embrace the chaos.

Have a great weekend.

NO MORE SHOE-LACES

No more laces in summer shoes
I like to spend most of the summer in flip flops or sandals. There is something very invigorating about getting your toes out in the fresh air especially when they spent the rest of the seasons inside boots. Despite my best intentions to free my feet from the restrains of shoes, the weather doesn’t always comply and sometimes it rains. Imagine that! So inconsiderate, don’t you think?
I usually have a pair of canvas shoes that I have for those days where sandals are not an option, but I don’t like laces. I actually resent them. You need to tie them, they get wet, they become untied, tangled… they are just messy so I decided to get rid of them.

This “no lace” solution is also great to use for children’s runners, especially when they are at an age where they don’t know how to tie them up properly just yet. It allows them to wear the shoes that they want without the hassle of the laces (no more dirty looks from teachers!)

Remove the laces from the shoes (isn’t it liberating?) and replace them with an elastic band tying a knot at the top and at the bottom. That is it.
Replacing shoe laces for live
No wet laces. No more knotted laces. No more laces. Easy to slip them in and out. Hurray for small victories!
