saving memories with Nordstjerne...

December 10, 2017

 memories...we try to keep them in our hearts, but slowly they will disappear, if we don't save them. It can be in photos, but also by writing those special moments down on paper. I regret not having started this when Adam was born, because I've lost so many fun things he has done or said, special events or things that I just wish I could remember forever...but have forgotten already...

I recently started writing things down in these suede notebooks from Nordstjerne. Small things he says or memories I just want to keep. My plan is to have some polaroid looking photos printed to put into the books too. I'll probably fill these with memories in no time at all, so notebooks are always on my wishlist. These with the suede cover comes in 6 beautiful colours. A great personal gift for someone you hold dear - as you can fill it with memories you did together, favourite recipes or let the person fill it with their own words. 

a minimal home full of character...

December 6, 2017
this is the home of Yvonne Kone. I love that it is quite minimal, but still full of character. We have always had white walls, but looking at this home I am dreaming of adding hues to our walls - oh and a huge book shelf...
The colour selection is perfect - the terracotta in the hallway, the beige in the dining room and the blue-grey in the rest of the home with burgundy touches like the curtains - really beautiful.

gifts for the entire family from ellos...

December 4, 2017

it is that time of the year...people are in search of the perfect gifts for the ones they love and online shopping is as easy as it gets. I have been browsing on Ellos in search of some great gifts for both him, her and child.
A nice bathrobe or nightwear is always a hit - Adam have the one for kids and it is really nice and affordable too! I also love the soft sheepskin slippers that they carry from Shepherd - Adam has these ones and they are so comfy and easy for him to put on himself. I have the Ugg ones and I wear them all the time at home. My husband steels them from time to time, since they are super warm and comfy.
I love that Himla have made some special gift-wrapped pieces - like the blanket and the linen set. -Looks really nice to receive a nice gift in a beautiful box. The bag is on my own wishlist, since we need something for small trips or as a carry bag - I love that this is a classic that my husband will also want to carry. You can get a matching toilet-bag too, which is a great gift for men - fill it with nice products that he loves and you have a really nice and personal gift.

beautiful, classic home in soft hues...

November 29, 2017

there is something very special about this home. I love the mix of classic furniture and the relaxed atmosphere in Aiayu founder Maria H√łgh Heilmann's lovely home. The beautiful knitted pillows from Aiayu mixed with linen pillows gives such a nice and cosy feel. Slow living at its best.

homemade confections with Nordstjerne...

November 19, 2017

this is the season to cosy up at home. I try to do a few different diy's every year and this year we are starting with homemade confections. I'm normally not that crazy about marzipan, but these are really delicious and crunchy and really easy to make - I'm sharing the recipe below, so make sure you try it out.

I had planned on Adam and I doing this together, but all he did was eat the chocolate and stress me out. So if you have a busy 3 year old too, I suggest you make these on your own...The mess after was...well...a lot...nuts, chocolate everywhere on the floor...I was also stressing about the light, because it gets dark SO early and it was raining all day, but luckily I got some nice shots anyhow...

Making these in style thanks to the beautiful pieces from Nordstjerne. I love their beautiful collection of decor made of brass, marble and suede; very Nordic, raw and simple. They also make the most beautiful christmas decorations in beautiful colours and materials. I especially the Tibetan singing bowl and the brass tray are favourites and they can be used for all kinds of things. - Love pieces like that.

As for the recipe for these marzipan balls with crocant...


100 g sugar 
1/2 table spoon butter
50 g mixed nuts (I used almonds and hazelnuts, but pecans are also really nice)

200 g marzipan
100 g dark chocolate

1. Melt the sugar on a dry pan and add the butter. Add the nuts and cover them in caramel.

2. Put the crocant on some bakingpaper to cool down and then chop it into small pieces. Put some away to use as topping.

3. Knead the marzipan and crocant together and roll small balls

4. Melt the chocolate over water. Dip the balls into the melted chocolate and add the rest of the crocant as topping.

little winter wardrobe update...

November 14, 2017

uuuhhh it's getting colder by the day and no going out without gloves and a warm coat now. I've been at home with a terrible cough for over a week and I hear that a lot of people have the flu at the moment, so definitely remember to dress warm!

I've been looking online for small updates for the little one's wardrobe. - I seem to spend every penny on him (if you're a mom you might relate)...

Adam takes off his hat all the time. Every day when I go across the street to pick him up from Kindergarten, he's thrown it somewhere on the playground and we'll run around looking for it. - or more like I'll be running around searching, while he takes another spin on a bike and happy that he can stay another 5 minutes...
I'm thinking of buying him this one from Frilo, which is not too easy to take off and it is also perfect for under his helmet, when he sits on the back of my bike. Same story with his gloves, so I'm thinking getting him those from Bonton, which he will not be able to throw anywhere.

I bought him the Caramel sweater in both cream and grey and they've become a favourite. I just love the cut and I really like to get him the matching leggings too. If I had to just buy him one set it would be this.

He jumped a size in shoes really fast, so I have had to buy him some new pairs. I found some really cute shoes with wool lining on discount at my favourite children's shop, but he'll probably need a pair of new warm boots soon too and these from Pepe are perfect.
Luckily he still fits into his snowsuit from last year (hoping he will until the sales start at least). I recently bought him a Burberry duffle that I found preloved. I also love this one from Cos, which is quite classic too.
