I’m next on the birthday list in our family. This year I turn 36. I haven’t had time to think that much about it, and in the end it is just a number, right? This year turned out a lot different than I imagined. But luckily, it’s for the good. I haven’t been this happy or felt this good in years. This year, I’ve added a few more personal gifts to my wishlist, things that will not be added to the household, so to speak, but things that I will enjoy wearing or using on an everyday basis. Today, I’ll give you a sneak peak of some of the things which made it to the final list.
During the last year, I’ve been reading books again. And I want to make time for even more reading this fall. High on my list is of course a gift certificate to an online bookshop. In October, I’ll buy the new Kinfolk book, which I wrote about here. I can hardly wait to sit down with a cup of coffee and start reading it. But high on my list is also the book The Monocle Guide to Good Business. It would be amazing to read under the light of the beautiful Reade Table lamp from Menu.
Something I’ve taken up this year, or the end of last year to be precise, is yoga. It’s amazing for me and my body, and I want to get to know even more and learn even more. So comfortable yoga clothes from Sofie Schnoor’s collection also made it to my list this year. The necklace Caro by Maria Black, would look great on me this season. The print I do I do I do from One Must Dash would be perfect for our new corner in the dining room. And I would love to sleep in this bed linen from H&M. Lastly, I need some more beauty products. Purely Professional is such a great match for me and my daughter.
But mostly, I want to be around the people I love and care about. Throw a dinner party and just drink some wine and talk all night.
While the kids are visiting my parents, I’m getting ready to celebrate my little man’s birthday this weekend. So I’m busy cleaning the house and making various treats for the guests. Later we’ll go out with a few friends and listen to some of the music around the city.
But first I want to show you this amazing apartment. I absolutely love the pink details around the home.

This year is all about Lego for my son, who turns six this week. Ninjago and Batman are high on his wishlist. He can play for hours with a small Lego man or the Batmobile.

This week my little guy turns six years old. Wow! We want to throw a big party in our garden, with lots of treats and cake, fun and games, and a walk along the fjord, to look at all the ships. The coming weekend is all about ships here in Aalborg with the Tall Ships Races 2015. But the main event is of course his birthday party. Here are some of the ideas I’ve collected for they party.

Actually, I don’t have a lot on my Friday craving list this week. I haven’t stumpled upon that much since last week – maybe it’s because I’m still wrapped up in holiday mood. However, I did see some really exciting news. In October I’ll have one item on my craving list: the new Kinfolk book – The Kinfolk Home.
This is what Amazon writes about the book:
The Kinfolk Home takes readers inside 35 homes around the world, from the United States, Scandinavia, Japan, and beyond. Some have constructed modern urban homes from blueprints, while others nurture their home’s long history. What all of these spaces have in common is that they’ve been put together carefully, slowly, and with great intention. Featuring inviting photographs and insightful profiles, interviews, and essays, each home tour is guaranteed to inspire.
