My essential travel companions

Summer packing Mom I’ve got a few important things on my packing list this summer. First on my list is a book, maybe two, depending on what kind of book I’m reading at the moment and my mood when packing. This year, I’ll bring The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt. I bought it in Gothenburg last summer, but my husband started reading it before I got the chance, but this summer it’s my turn. I’ll also bring The Opposite of Loneliness by Marina Keegan.

This year, I’ll also bring my yoga mat from moshi moshi mind along with my online yoga instructor Adriene. She’s amazing, if you don’t know her. I’ll also bring a pair of headphones, in order for me to relax and meditate. The dusty pink ones from kreafunk would be perfect.

I will bring a bottle of gin this year as well, or maybe buy one when we get there, if I find something interesting. I see no point in taking a vacation from our Friday Night Gin Club. I might try out the gin from Mikkeller. I’ll throw in a good bag of Salt & Pepper chips for the ride, or the first night, when none of us wants to go out and buy them.

Best of the week #3

It’s officially summer in our family. We’ll be unplugging and relaxing and enjoying all the best things Denmark has to offer this time of year. But I’ve written a few blog posts in advance with dirrerent things related to our holiday. I’ll give you ideas and lists of what my family will be cooking and baking over the next couple of weeks, what I packed for the kids and for myself. Thoughts on my boy turning 6 years old and party tips as well. So even though it’s summer time, I’ll still stop by once in a while. And you can always check out my Instagram profile for more daily updates on what I’ve been up to.

Before I leave, I’ve collected a few pictures for inspiration. This week, I’ve been very inspired by how to live with less. I must say, cottage life according to Minna Jones, from the beautiful blog Time of the Aquarius, does seem appealing, when it looks like this. I wish we had a cottage like this, where we could live and enjoy a more simple lifestyle. Enjoy these beautiful pictures, and do visit Minna’s blog for much more inspiration.

I wish you all a wonderful summer and I’ll be back on a more regular basis at the end of July.

Friday cravings

It’s Friday already. It’s time to share some of the things on my Friday craving list.

Friday cravings #2 #1 My iPhone cover is full of cracks in the corners, pretty soon one of the corners will break off. Therefore, I’m on the lookout for a new cover. Right now the beautiful cover from Lala Berlin is topping my list.

#2 This bag is turning out to be quite an obsession. I keep looking at the cute rose Mini Lily from Mulberry.

#3 For me this summer is all about cold brew. Therefore, a Hario “Mizudashi” cold brew, in black of course, would be the perfect companion.

#4 I’m a sneakers girl. A few years back, I wouldn’t have thought so, but a quick look at my wishlist on Pinterest will tell you the truth. Boy do I have a lot of sneakers on there. This is one of my latest cravings when it comes to sneakers.

#5 I want to add some new fresh bed linen to our bedroom. This pretty grey one from H&M will add even more calm to the room, and peace and quiet is what I’m aiming for in there.





Dining room corner

We, or should I say I’m moving things around in our home these days. First I moved my work station into our bedroom and then moved the dining table. I wanted to redecorate our dining room in order to make room for a sofa of some sorts. We need a spot in there, where we can sit down and relax. Right now we’ve only got one armchair and a safari chair – and lets face it, the safari chair is nice to look at, but you don’t use it, when you want to relax. I’ve created a mood board in order to keep track of my thoughts when it comes to decorating the room.

Friday cravings

What an amazing week. It has been all about family time, getting ready for our summer holiday and our trip to Legoland. The kids are ecstatic and to tell you the truth, so am I. I’ve only been there once before, when my daughter was about three years old.

Before the weekend, I’ll leave you with a few of the things currently on my craving list.
Friday Cravings collage A piece of this Matcha swirl cheesecake, which I found at A Cozy Kitchen.

Temporary Tattoos by Ylva Skarp – I just love love love Ylva Skarp’s new tattoos. I don’t have any real tattoos myself, and I don’t think I’ll ever get one (I don’t like needles), but these would be pretty cool this summer.

Some homemade strawberry white chocolate popsicles like the ones found at tutti dolci. I really have to give these a go this weekend. It would be the perfect mother daughter activity on Sunday.

Walks along the beach with my family. I wouldn’t mind a view like the one in the picture from pablitoblue’s flickr account. Maybe enjoy an ice cream as well.
