Want – Even though my birthday was last month, I still have a few things left on my wishlist. I recently came across this beautiful snow globe which would be perfect for my office space. I simply love them, and a few years back we always bought a snow globe for our daughter, when we visited a new place. I found some really cute ones – I’m trying to decide between the more winter inspired collection or the zen collection.
Wear – I would love to wear these new pants to yoga – or simply at home after some television yoga.To top it off, I would add the cool grey sweater by Rebecca Minkoff. I’m trying to get back in the routine and would love for my daughter to join me on the mat. Right now I’m looking for a class for both of us.
Need – I really need a new bag. My everyday bag has seen better days. I’m on the lookout for something classic and black. I need a medium size bag for the stuff I carry around on a normal day. I’m trying to cut down on the stuff that I carry around in my bag – but that’s a whole other story. I’ve been looking at Rebecca Minkoff’s Regan Satchel Tote online, but I want to feel and have a look in the store before buying it – just to make sure.
Read – I’ve been wanting to read Milk and Honey all summer. Milk and Honey is a collection of poetry and prose about survival. About the experience of violence, abuse, love, loss, and femininity. Milk and Honey takes readers through a journey of the most bitter moments in life and finds sweetness in them because there is sweetness everywhere if you are just willing to look.
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.
1. Paddywax Small Concrete Candle
2. Unicorn Sparkle 50/50 Colour Pencils
3. Heart Mirror
4. Say What? Scented mini Eraser set
5. Wire Wall Grid
6. Light-Up LED Heart Sconce
7. Fujifilm Instax Mini 8 Camera in Pink
8. Cactus Money Box
9. Fresh’N Rebel Rockbox Cube Pink Wireless Speaker
My kids (and my husband) have been asking me what’s on my wishlist right now – reminding me that Mother’s Day is coming up soon. So I’ve decided to help them a little. All of the things and more can be found on my wishlist on Pinterest.
My husband and I just returned from yet another fantastic trip to Hamburg. I wanted to share a few where, when and what’s with you from our latest trip. We often stay in a flat, but almost always in the St. Pauli area.
Where to stay ➳ We stayed at east
Where to get your cup of coffee ➳ I would highly recommend you check out Nord Coast Coffee Roastery and less political (Hermetic coffee roasters)
When to visit the city ➳ Every single day of the year – we’ve been there spring, summer, fall and winter.
Where to get a decent burger and sweet potato fries ➳ Check out Brooklyn Burger Bar and Otto’s Burger (Try the salted caramel shake!)
Where to find food trucks ➳ Street food session Yum!
Where to shop ➳ Get away from the high streets – and explore all the cool little shops. This time I bought quite a few things in Kauf Dich Glücklich
Where to eat pizza (to die for) ➳ Das Mehl – we went there in November and loved every bite of pizza – I hope they’ll find a new location soon
What to do on a rainy day ➳ Visit Miniature Wunderland – it’s not just for kids – adults will love it too
Have a fantastic day xoxo
Somehow December came and went. I ended 2016 with a nasty cold, and 2017 began with a few days in bed. But now I’m up and ready for 2017 and the changes this new year will bring.
I’ve got high hopes for this year. Like the rest of the world, I’m also waiting to see what’ll happen, but on a personal note, I’m more than ready for 2017.
This week and the rest of the month actually is all about my daughter turning 11 years old. I’ll write a post about what to buy for a girl like her soon. Hopefully, I’ll have some time this weekend.
I just wanted to stop by and say hello. I’ve got a night with a good book planned.
Take care xx
After spending a wonderful long weekend in Hamburg last weekend, I’ve been really busy at work. Things are changing and my head has been elsewhere.
I want to give you a few tips about where to eat in Hamburg – but I’ll have to leave it for another post. I’m in love with the city, and my husband did some amazing research and found quite a few spots worth writing about.
It’s already the second Sunday in December, and I’m still trying to figure out what to buy for my family. Right now I should be shopping online for some of the presents, but I just don’t know what to buy for all of them.
We’ve been baking and making chocolate treats for Christmas today, and the rest of my family is relaxing right now. I think I’ll join the kids for a Christmas movie now, and do the shopping some other time. Have a lovely Sunday <3
