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...

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
COS COAT / BONTON GLOVES / FRILO HAT / CARAMEL SWEATER / PEPE BOOTS / CARAMEL LEGGINGS 

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. 

an aesthetically pleasing home...

November 13, 2017







 so many beautiful details makes Line Dahy Ernst's home truly special. It's aesthetically pleasing to the eye and I just love how classic and modern furniture and decor are mixed together with vintage touches. It's not over the top, but understated and classic and you can tell that every detail is very well thought through. Absolutely love.

home decor wishes...

November 6, 2017

NORDSTJERNE NOTEBOOKS / BLUE LEAVES TEASPOON / MANTIS BS3 LAMP / LINEN PILLOWCOVERS

there's nothing I love shopping for more than decor - oh yeah maybe clothing shopping for Adam...but I would choose a nice piece for the home over any item of clothing for myself and let's face it, fashion change so often anyway, so buying new pieces for the home is a better way to spend your money. Especially if you buy timeless pieces.

My style in decor has changed to a somewhat softer and more classic one - I would describe it Nordic French. We still have a lot to do in our home in terms of decorating. I don't want to fill the space with things, but keep it rather minimal. However, we are in need of a coffee table, so I've been looking through magazines and Pinterest for inspiration. We also need some kind of closed storage to hide things like Adam's board games and other toys we don't want out all the time. - Something quite classic. Might search Ikea for options.

Above are some of the decor pieces on my wishlist that I love. All classics if you ask me. 


soft slippers...

it's November and time for warm slippers...it's already pretty cold here, so we are wearing hats and gloves, when we go out, but it is also time to wear warm slippers indoors. We have pretty cold floors at our house in winter, especially in our kitchen, so I recently bought these sheepskin slippers for Adam at Ellos. I also have my eye on another pair from the same brand that I might get him to wear in kindergarten. They do them in adult size for both men and women - see the selection here.

soft slippers and tunic...

we love this time of the year, when you can just cosy up at home and wear warm and soft clothes. I just bought Adam a pair of new slippers from Ellos and they are SO warm and easy for him to put on himself. I highly recommend them. I also have my eye on another pair from Shepherd - these - so he has a pair to wear in kindergarten too. They come in adult size too - for both men and women. You can see the selection here

The tunic is from our favourite Bonet et Bonet in super soft muslin cotton - it is not yet available, but will be in the beginning of the new year. If you don't know this brand you are really missing out. Their universe and beautiful collection of clothes, decor, beddding etc. is just stunning.
