Personal Thoughts & Style Bloom Linkup

fashion blog, dc fashion blog, creative blog, art y Elena FayIt’s been a while since I posted something new here and I thought I’d take the time and share some thoughts that’ve been bugging me for a while.

I’m almost 36 weeks pregnant now and sometimes I feel like a hamster on the wheel. I want to make our home perfect for our fast growing family and also keep growing this blog and my Etsy shop. There are days when I wake up with so much energy and so many ideas and I want to accomplish them all but, by the end of the day, I feel totally drained and can’t even move my hand. Running around with my 2 year old toddler getting harder and harder especially with this huge baby bump:). Many doors have opened since I started blogging and I want to keep going, but there are always things I keep thinking about.

Will I be able to manage it all with 2 little kids? Is it possible to be a successful blogger/ entrepreneur and a good mom?

And you know what? I believe it is possible! We (moms) just need to set clear expectations and make a good plan. It’s OK to take it easy and stop being worried about posting less. It’s OK to say no to some projects. It’s Ok to have a pizza day once a week and forget about cooking at least for one night, right?:) I decided to take small steps to archiving my goals and the most important thing is to take a proper care of myself because I want to enjoy every second of being a mom and a business woman and it’s not gonna happen If I’ll be stressed out all the time.

Ladies, we can do this, right? Share you advice about how do you manage your time with your family and business (in a comment) and don’t forget to submit your link to your style post!

Last weekend we went to Zoo. Ethan was super happy and could have stayed there all day long but we’ve noticed big dark clouds and knew that something bad is coming. Later that day we had a storm and I’m glad we left earlier.Baby boy at ZooGiraffes were Ethan’s favorites, he couldn’t take his eyes off of them:)giraffes at Zoo, Maryland ZooMy two favorite men:) Looking at these pictures makes me realize how big Ethan has got and it makes me a little sad.father and sonYep, my baby bump is getting bigger, it grows faster than when I was pregnant the first time.

Exciting News

19 weeks pregnant, big announcement, maternity style

It’s been awhile since I’ve shared our family photos or my personal style with you. Somehow this blog turned into my art diary and I really miss sharing my thoughts with you, trying and posting results of new recipes and awesome DIY projects.
This blog always motivated me to find great deals and try new trends, that’s why I’m so excited to do style related posts again.
When Ethan was born, I realized that it’s almost impossible to look elegant and polished all the time (well, at least for me it was a big struggle)! But I want to stay stylish not only when I go out but also while running after toddler in the park, doing grocceries or getting coffee with my friends.
And… it’s time to share our big news with you!!!! Yes, yes I’m 19 weeks pregnant and can’t be more excited! We’ll find out if it’s a boy or a girl pretty soon and I’ll tell you right away:)
Love
Elena
**************
Как же давно я не делилась с вами фоточками из повседневной жизни. Мало помалу мой блог превратился в портфолио моих иллюстраций и я очень скучаю по тем девичьим постам где мы беседовали просто ни о чём, делились рецептами и интересными проектами! И поэтому я безумно рада снова начать такие посты.
Когда родился Итан, у меня совершенно не было ни сил ни возможности всегда выглядеть ухожено и стильно ( думаю молодые мамочки меня поймут). Тем не менее, мне хочется выглядеть на все 100 не только когда мы идем в ресторан, вечеринки и важные мероприятия но и когда я просто гуляю с малышом в парке, бегаю по магазинам или захожу в кафе с подругами.
Ну и пора уже поделиться нашей новостью! Думаю вы уже догадались;) Да, да, я снова с пузиком ( 19 неделек). Совсем скоро мы узнаем если это девочка или мальчик и я сразу же вам все поведаю!;)
