The Day We Moved

Day 2 . the day we moved | Te Amo Too

You may or may not have ever read the About Me page. If you did you know that when my husband and I got married in 2007 we moved from Brazil to Kentucky with a few bags. Than three years later we moved from Kentucky to South Carolina with two little ones and a few extra bags. We lived in South Carolina for five years and this August we moved again, this time from South Carolina to Virginia, with three kids, a whole lot of boxes and only a few bags ;) Along the years we enjoyed and explored each little […]

DIY . Laundry Detergent

DIY Landry Detergent with Free Printable | Te Amo Too

A life without toxicity is probably not something we could all achieve. But we all know how extremely important it is to reduce our exposure to toxins. They enter our bodies and corrode it from inside, damaging our systems, and preventing our bodies to self heal and correct. Regardless of wether we notice it or not, toxins can still hurt us. Reducing exposure today is the first step to building health for tomorrow. We are susceptible to toxins from many areas that are outside of our control. So we need to do the best we can at what we can control, like the detergent […]

Tissue Decorations in the Bedroom

Aqua and Gray Nursery | Te Amo Too

I hope you all liked the progress pictures of the Tree Wall Decal on my little girl’s Aqua Nursery. Today I want to show you the progress pictures of the tissue decorations I hung over her crib. After the 8 hours I spent to finish that wall, hanging the tissue decorations was the easiest thing! I bought a pack of those small white hooks, screwed them on the ceiling and used fishing line to hang the decorations. I fell in love with the bedroom Ashley from Under the Sycamore created for her little girl, and the same way she was inspired […]

DIY . Summer Snowball Fight

DIY Summer Snowball Fight | Te Amo Too

I have so much fun planning birthday parties, thinking of every single detail, designing every decoration, assembling all of the little projects and even though the list goes on and on, a beautiful looking party is not necessarily a fun party. What really matters is that our children feel loved and celebrated in the midst of family and friends. So don’t overlook planning little party activities that you feel your child would enjoy. To keep up with the Owl theme of my daughter’s first birthday party, I put together a Wise Owl Corner, a Night Owl Corner and a Winter Owl Corner […]

BIY . Wall Decals

30 Gorgeous Wall Decals | Te Amo Too

One of my absolute favorite elements about Olivia’s Nursery is the Japanese Cherry Blossom Tree Decal from Leo Little Lion. It was the first wall decal I ever bought, I’m glad I started small ;) I am not gonna lie. It took me hours to put this thing together! It wasn’t hard, the diagram was pretty easy to follow, but because I’m such a perfectionist I paid way too much attention to where every leaf and flower was going. A little unnecessary, but I love how it turned out and it’s not something I am going to have to mess with […]

Owl Birthday Party

Owl Birthday Party | Te Amo Too

I think you have figured out by now what the theme was of Livi’s First Birthday Party after the huge hint I gave with the pictures from her nursery, right?! Plus, there’s the fact that the post title is “an owl birthday party” so … ding ding ding You got it! How clever of you ;) One thing I love doing when celebrating first birthdays is using pieces I already have, or plan on buying, from their rooms. I knew I wanted Olivia’s First Birthday to match the color scheme in her nursery: aqua, white, grey and black. That way I wouldn’t have to buy […]

DIY . All Natural Remineralizing Toothpaste

I am always up for a challenge when it comes to making my own remedies, beauty products, and cleaning supplies. So I was beyond excited to continue my journey towards a healthier lifestyle by eliminating my exposure to harmful ingredients found in a regular toothpaste. What is wrong with my toothpaste? To begin with, Fluoride is the main ingredient in toothpaste … and rat poison. It is categorized as a “toxic drug” by the FDA. Fluoride can cause side effects like damage to the brain, decreased IQ in children, damage to the pineal gland, thyroid gland, bones, gastrointestinal tract, and cancers. Since it […]

White Dresser Makeover

White Dresser Makeover | Te Amo Too

I am so happy you all enjoyed little Olivia’s Nursery. Today I wanna show you a simple makeover I did on the dresser. This is certainly one of my “if I can do it, you can DIY” projects. Believe me! It took me so long to paint my first piece of furniture. I wish I had started painting furniture a long time ago. It is so easy and it makes a huge difference. During my search for all white furniture, an acquaintance offered to give me this chest of drawers. At first I thought it looked weird, mostly because of […]

Aqua Nursery Tour

Aqua and Gray Nursery | Te Amo Too

Hello friends. I’m so happy you are here. Today I want to give you a little tour into Olivia’s Nursery – you can see more pictures of this little booger right here. To start this room we need to go to the place where all dreams begin, to a place that gets your creative juices flowing, a place where all the impossible seems possible: Pinterest, of course! One of my very first pins (oh milestones) was this office by Mary McDonald. Isn’t it beautiful?! To start the decorating process, I asked myself what everyone should ask after pinning something they like, or finding […]
