Too cool for school – Girl clothes edition

Today, I want to share some cool back to school clothes with you. This post will only focus on clothes for girls – in this case my tween girl. I’ll then return with a boy edition in a few days. So, this back to school thing… well we’ve been hit by the “back to school craziness” big time this year. We’ve had way too much to take care of in the past two weeks, with our boy participating in a new television show for kids (which by the way was a fantastic experience – but more about that later, when they are done filming the show) and meetings. Our girl is now on 5th grade ans she’s loving every minute of it – she’s learning the German language now. She’s turning into a real teen before our very eyes, and clothes is very much a part of her transformation. Could someone please turn back time?

She’s much more into having “the right clothes” than she’s ever been. She knows what she wants, and it’s so funny listening to her talk about wanting “blogger glasses” and so on. I’ve made a collage of some of the clothes from Zara, which is currently on her wishlist.

Birthday Girl coming up…

Birthday Girl wishes

August is full of birthdays in my family. But first of all, I hope you’ve had an amazing summer. As you can see, I didn’t blog during my vacation, so I’m ready to share some awesome inspiration with you here again. In short, despite the terrible weather here in Denmark, my summer vacation wasn’t that bad. We mostly stayed here in Denmark, but also enjoyed a few days in lovely Gothenburg in Sweden. For the first time in 5 years, we didn’t re-book Svendborg/Christiansminde for the summer of 2018. Hopefully, we’ll travel through Europe next year, and explore some beautiful cities along the way. I’ll let you know, when we start planning the trip.

I’ve got a birthday coming up this month and in order to help some desperate souls out there, I’ve collected a few items for inspiration. You can also check out my Pinterest board for more wishes.

Items from my wishlist:
#1 Croissant necklace from Jukserei
#2 This cool After This We’re Getting Pizza yoga mat
#3 Sofie Schnoor Lace Scarf in cameo rose
#4 Sofie Schnoor Boot Classic
#5 Shimmer.Shine from Kevin Murphy
#6 Miss Jagger Earrings from Vera Vega
#7 The No Mess Waffle

Staycation tips

Staycation is for the hardcore here in Denmark, because you can never trust the Danish weather. Most of our friends booked a vacation somewhere warm during this past week. We were so close ourselves, but decided to stay put.

Not sure what to do this summer? Well help is near. I’ve made a list of some of my favourite summer activities and they’re perfect for staycation inspiration. A few more days, and then it’s staycation time for me as well 🙂

Staycation to do

If you need more inspiration try a Pinterest search. You’ll find lots and lots of staycation inspiration there. You can also check out my latest poat on what to pack for a staycation.

Have a wonderful day 🙂

Staycation in Denmark – Things to do and pack

The summer holiday is getting closer by the minute. This year it’s a staycation summer for us – even though it is a bit nerve wrecking with the weather just now. But I’m sure we’ll figure something out.

We’re going to Christiansminde near Svendborg again this year. It’s the perfect spot for me and my family. We can relax, enjoy the beautiful surroundings, explore Fyn and simply enjoy a bit of time away from home. It’s our fifth summer there, so we haven’t planned a whole lot yet. I think we’ll just see what happens.

I’ve made of list of things to bring or do on your staycation – and if the weather continues, you should look at it as a survival kit 😉

Staycation Survival kit

The Survival kit
Tip 1 – Games
– Always bring lots of games in case of a rainy day or a slow evening on the terrace. This year, I plan to bring Scrabble for my husband and I and Speak Out for the whole family.
Tip 2 – Aperol – If you ask me it’s still a wonderful summer drink. I plan to enjoy a Aperol Spitz while overlooking the sea. Fancy to spice up your Aperol this summer, then take a look at this link (it’s in Danish).
Tip 3 – Raincoat – If you live in Denmark or you plan a trip here during the summer (or any other time of the year for that matter) invest in a pretty raincoat. Trust me, you’ll not regret it. This one is from Zara’s Girls collection, and I’m in love.
Tip 4 – Books – Summer means reading lots of books, if you ask me. A thing I’m trying to pass on to my kids as well. Hopefully, I’ll succeed. This summer I plan to read The Way I Used to Be by Amber Smith and a few other books as well.
Tip 5 – Breakfast – It’s my favourite meal of the day. Normally, I don’t have much time to prepare a delicious breakfast, but during the weekends we often make something special. Imagine 3 weeks in breakfast heaven – I know I’m in for a treat in Christiansminde, but I know my husband will make something even better, when we get home. On top of my wishlist is The No Mess Waffle maker – with one of these our mornings will be magic.

The relaunch & garden inspo

I’ve been away from Espresso Moments for quite a few months now. I’ve been busy working and spending time with friends and family. However, I thought I would return with some garden inspo. More about that later in this post, but first something about why I’ve decided to return.

I did try a comeback a few times during the first half of this year, simply because I wasn’t finished with this blog-thing. But time and time again life got in the way of blogging, and it went quiet in here again. But this time, I’m really going to get my act together and start posting again. I really miss this place, and I’ve got some time on my hands now, so why not relaunch this thing?

I know it’s time to start my summer vacation in a few weeks, but hopefully I’ll be inspired to still check in here once or twice a week. If not, then I can assure you that I’ll be back full time at the end of July.

Garden Inspo
Right now it’s supposed to be summer here in Denmark – but it comes as no surprise that it’s quite windy here and not that warm yet. But we’ve still got to take care of our garden. We’ve got a few plans and projects for this summer, but I’m not sure we’ll finish all of them this year. I’ve been collecting pictures on Pinterest in order to show my husband, what I had in mind. So here’s a collection of some of the pictures I’ve showed him.
