Urban Shopping with a tween

Shopping, shopping and more shopping. Later this year we’re going to Copenhagen with the kids. The first thing my daughter said was YES! then we can go to Urban Outfitters. She loves the store and she could easily buy the first 100 items there.

To kill time we hit the online shop for inspiration – and then she could make a wishlist of the things she would like to buy. Truth be told, I kind of like some of the things as well, so I don’t mind going in there with her, and a few of the things could end up on my wishlist as well. It’s the perfect mother-daughter store if you ask me. It’s not the clothes we’re after, but it’s the Home & Gifts section.

Gifts for kids – Etsy edition

Today it’s time for the gifts for kids edition. I’ve already covered gifts for him and her – and now it’s time for the kids. Etsy is full of super cute toys and stuff for the kids. I always love buying something special for the kids – something you cannot buy in the store around the corner. That is one of the main reasons why I love finding stuff on Etsy. I’ve picked out things for the kids, some for the tiny ones and some for the older ones. For more inspiration go to Etsy Editor’s Pick Page, where you’ll find more interesting gift ideas.

Advent – what to buy for the kids

I had way too many plans this last week, so I got a bit behind on the posts here on the blog. Therefore,  I’ve decided to combine two posts that I had planned. I wanted to do a post full of gift ideas for my 7 year old little guy, and then one for my tween. Due to lack of time, I’ll show you what I ended up buying for them instead. I had a hard time picking out the gifts for my little guy, but I found the last one yesterday. Now they are all wrapped up and ready for next Sunday. How about you, are you ready for Christmas?

Interior inspiration – bunkbed

It’s Friday and I’m off to a dance party at the school. The calendar is packed with meetings and activities these weeks. I hardly have any time to finish some of the interior projects, which we’ve started. Tomorrow, I’m going to the Finders Keepers fair here in Aalborg – I hope to return with a lot of inspiration and maybe a thing or two.

One of the things which inspired me lately is a bunkbed project by Susanna Vento. What a beauty – and it’s so practical. I love the storage space in each bunk. You can see many others photos of the project on Instagram #projectbunkbed – it’s almost a step by step guide.

Getting ready for winter – kids edition

A few days ago I read that it would be a very cold winter here in Denmark this year. I’v bought some things to prepare the kids for the cold weather, but I’ve still got a few more things on my list before I’m fully ready for snow. Over the years I’ve tried lots of different brands when it comes to kids clothing. I’ve found a few favourite brands, which I know will keep them warm and dry during the winter season.

Summer time in the tween bedroom

The kids have been at soccer camp all week, and my husband and I are still busy with work. Two weeks to go before I can sit back and enjoy my summer holiday with the rest of the family.

But I’m planning to rearrange a few things in our home before that. Last weekend we ended up buying the Ikea bed for my daughter, which I mentioned in this post. She’s crazy about it. Last night we watched The Karate Kid (her for the first time – and me reliving one of favourite childhood movies) in her bed. We both slept in it last night, which was really cozy. The bedding from Sirlig, which I mentioned in the last post as well is on sale right now, and I just clicked two home for the family. My daughter has been talking about it for ages, so I hope I’ll get an OMG out of her when she sees it.

We still need to decide on prints in her room. I’m not into a whole wall filled with Christopher posters, so we’ll need to find a middleway. I’ve been collecting a few free prints on Pinterest, and then we’ll find a few together.
