Oh dear! June has been a busy month for me and I have had no time to update my blog. It was difficult adjusting to a new routine and timetable at home because I am left at home with Summer almost all day. I initially planned to apply for my visa to Denmark last month but I had to put it off because I had to attend to Summer's needs first and going around with her alone is something that is not easy for me to do yet. I sometimes catch myself just staring at her for hours and hours.

I am currently in the process of drafting our itinerary and I tell you that an itinerary of two months is not at all an easy undertaking. Honestly, I would rather we wing it but I don't want to waste hours and hours of discussion between me and the husband. I want to be able to work on a schedule because I am OC like that. Speaking of OC-ness, I am also drafting a list of clothes and things to bring and as I was scouring through my cabinet last night, I realized that I only have a few season-appropriate clothes to bring to Denmark (it will be summer when we arrive and it will be fall when we leave).

I've been to a few shopping trips but almost always end up with bags containing clothes for the little miss and nothing for me. Haha! I am sure many new mommies can relate to me and what I have become. Not that I am complaining but dressing up the little one is so much fun and I love living vicariously through her. Good thing, I have online shopping to save me and I can scour through the web for clothes that I can bring to Denmark. One website I frequent is Zalora. Zalora carries incredibly pretty dresses and other apparel. Check them out here to find out what I am raving about. I can shop at the comforts of our home and I wouldn't be as guilty to leave the house and leave Summer to the care of another person.

I hope I'd be able to finish writing the itinerary, packing our bags and doing all other chores soon because August is almost here. The excitement is unbelievable and the fear of traveling long haul with an infant is palpable. I really hope Summer cooperates and behaves and I really hope I could fit in clothes and milk cans in all our luggages. Wish me luck!

In the meantime, let me plan my outfit (at least for the gatherings that we will attend and already written in the itinerary - still clueless for the rest of the days)!

If you want the original copies of the watercolor illustrations I used above (above photos were already edited), you may go to CreativeMarket which is currently my best design friend. I have a few days left to plan my wardrobe, so I will leave you for now and I gotta get started on shopping while the little one is still asleep.
