My fall wishlist

Today, I want to share my fall wishlist with you. I’ve been doing a bit of shopping for the kids – getting them ready for fall/winter. But this year, I’m quite ready for the season to change myself. Unlike any other year, I come prepared. I actually did my own shopping before making sure the kids had what they’ll need to get through. The worst part about that is that I now find myself drooling over all the beautiful fall items in the shops right now. I might have to buy just a tiny bit more – just for me.

My fall wishlist (contains add links)

Gorgeous glitter Chelsea boots from Sofie Schnoor. Oh, I want them right this minute!
Pack of 40 hair tie ball 
Cute little brown handbag for work
Oversized ochre cardigan
Really cute rose cashmere sweater
Black cashmere pants – for those cozy winter days
Did anyone say hygge? These slippers are to die for
A little bowl to keep all my bits and pieces in the bathroom

Shopping for dad

Who doesn’t need a few new things for the fall season? I’ve been looking for inspiration for my husband. The kids and I have been talking about surprising him with a few new items this fall. Luckily, it is way easier to find clothes for the kids. But I’ve come up with a few things. If your man isn’t keen on wearing baby pink or any other colour in fashion, well then your choices are a bit limited.

6 drinks with aperol to make this summer

There’s nothing wrong with a classic Aperol Spritz – you cannot go wrong there.  However, I’m in the mood for something else this year too. I’ve looked around and found a few other drinks containing Aperol – you could call them Aperol Spritz with a twist. I’m planning on trying out all of them one by one. I’m pretty sure I need to get those beautiful ferm LIVING Long Drink Glasses.

Here’s to a great summer full of Aperol Spritz twists

#1 Aperol Fanta Float
#2 Blackberry Aperol Spritz
#3 Aperol Spritz Sorbet
#4 ferm Living’s Ripple Rhapsody
#5 Aperol Spritz Popsicle
#6 Watermelon Ginger Aperol Spritz Cocktail

Favourite Finds – Gift ideas for Dad

Father’s Day is coming up soon and I wanted to share some gift ideas with you here. I’ve already clicked something home for our Farmand, and now the kids and I are excited to see if he’ll like it. Hopefully, he’ll love it and bring it with him when he goes to work.

This new brown Duncan belt from Levi’s would also come in handy

Summer Reading 2018

One of the things I love the most about summer is picking out books for my summer reading list. The last couple of years I’ve taken the time to read more books. I had a period in my life where I never picked up a book, and I realised that I needed books in my life to relax and feel inspired and happy. Now I’m always in the middle of a book or finishing one – and I love it. As soon as I read the last word on the last page I go to my bookshelf and pick out the next one. I also keep a page in my notebook just for book titles that I would love to check out. Then once in a while, I go online and read more about the books on my list. Some of them then end up in my home and some I delete. But I always keep a list. How do you keep track of the books you want to read?

Summer Reading List 2018

Braving the Wilderness by Bréne Brown
Bring Me Back by B.A. Paris
Hormonal by Martie Haselton
How to be Happy by Eva Woods
Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng
Wild Power by Alexandra Pope
The Light We Lost by Jill Santopolo
Womancode by Alisa Vitti
The Last Mrs Parrish by Liv Constantine

These are some of the books currently on my wishlist. I always check out Instagram, The New York Times book section, Amazon, and Pinterest when I start to browse for new books. I always find it inspiring to see what others are reading right now. Lately, I’ve actually been looking at Reese Witherspoon’s Bookclub account on Instagram for inspiration. I hope these 9 books have inspired you to go and check out some of them and that you’ll get the time to read a book or two this summer. I know I’ll be waiting for some of these books to arrive in the mail within the next couple of days. Let me know if there’s a must-read-book that’s missing from my list. I’m sure you get what kind of genre I’m into by now.
