Halloween is just around the corner, and my kids are making plans and talking about what to wear for the party. My girl has at least two parties to attend this year, and my little man will probably attend a party at his school. It’s such a fun day here in our neighborhood, some of our neighbors go all in, and they scare the s*** out of the kids, which is so much fun to watch. Last year, my daughter and her friend ran away from a house screaming, when they went trick or treat.
Normally, we don’t decorate our house, apart from a few Jack o lantern’s, which we carve out with the kids.The past few years we’ve meet up with some friends for a bit of Halloween fun. While we help the kids with their pumpkins, we also have time to drink lots of coffee, talk and make dinner. This little get together is the perfect excuse to try out a few different Halloween dishes or cakes. Normally, my daughter will find something spooky to bake, and we hit the kitchen together. Usually, it’s fun to make, and the kids love eating it, if it’s not too gross.
So with all the parties, we had to figure out what kind of costume to make or buy this year. My daughter and I sat down this past weekend to plan her outfit. She wanted to be a zombie teen. I didn’t want to buy a cheap pre-made costume, so we decided to look for ‘real’ clothes instead. This way she can use some of it afterwards. This is what we came up with.
It’s time for the October edition of Want Wear Need Read. I had planned to post it a few days ago, but I never got around to it.
Want Ever since I bought the croissant necklace from Jukserei for my birthday, I’ve been wanting to add this croissant keychain to my bag. It’s really cool, and I wear the necklace quite often.
Wear Normally, I wear different shades of black (or so my daughter would tease me) so putting a flower blouse on my wear list is a big step for me – some would say in the right direction. But I’m not ready to go all out just yet. With this blouse I can still wear my favourite color if I wear it with a black skirt or trousers.
Need I really need a new batch of Matcha. I drink a matcha iced latte every morning, and for me it’s the perfect way to start the day. Normally, I meditate while the matcha gets cold in my beautiful pink mug. I’m looking for different brands of matcha and would love to try out different ones. I’ve got my eyes set on this matcha kit. Do you drink matcha, and if so where do you buy it online?
Read I’ve been waiting on this new Kinfolk book for quite some time now. I pre-ordered it a few months back, and I just checked up on it, I might have it later this week or the beginning of the next. I’m planning on quite a few hours of reading with a cup of coffee in my hand.
I really miss my Yoga moments. I haven’t really been practicing yoga for over 6 months. The reason is that I’ve got some problems with my foot. However, last weekend I spoke to a friend of mine, who practices yoga quite a lot, and she encouraged me to get back on the mat – even though my foot is still hurting. There’s always a pose for me to do, without hurting my foot.
So, I’ve been looking at different yoga gear – not that I need all that much, but it’s just nice to add a new piece or maybe even a book for inspiration.
Funny weather. One day it’s really cold outside, and the next it’s warm and almost better than we’ve had all summer. And then there’s the rain – wild and crazy, and without any warning. But I love this season very much. I love the color pallet and the excuse to drink hot chocolate after school. It’s also the perfect chance to do a bit of shopping and figure out which items you need to replace, and which you cannot live without.
In my case, I really need a new winter coat. I’m still trying to find the right match. This year I also bought these pretty pink slippers – our dog ate the ones I’ve been using for a couple of years – and I had to have these pink ones.
Lately, I’ve been re-watching the 90s television show Felicity, starring Keri Russell as the young Felicity Porter, who follows a high school crush to New York City. I’m having so much fun watching this show again. I’m thrown back in time – and I’m finding myself considering if I’m a team Ben or a team Noel again (gotta love this love triangle).
You have to keep in mind that this show was before social media – and imagine the famous haircut scene – well, I was taken by surprise – big time back then – sitting there in my childhood home watching Felicity’s now short hair. Imagine that a haircut could turn into a popular culture reference in lots of other television shows. Check out the list on wikipedia And what about the shapeless jeans and sweaters – gotta love (or hate) the 90s right? That said, I actually miss the old school phones sometimes. And the cassette recorder – it’s not quite the same on a mobile, is it?
Take a walk down memory lane an watch these clips:
If you’re interested in some more Felicity check out the Felicity reunion here – and if that’s not enough – then it’s time to start watching. Right now I’m half way through season 2.
So tell me, would you watch it again? What’s your favourite moment? Are you Team Ben or Team Noel? And what about that cute Simon Rex? Now I really feel like watching another episode. Take care and go watch it.
Last week, when we were in Copenhagen, we stopped by Urban Outfitters – but my daughter Cathrine was not impressed. I guess I had failed to mention that they change the goods quite a bit – and she had hoped to buy a thing, she’d seen in February. However, we’ve look online, and found a few other cool items. Now I just feel like clicking it all home and start decorating for fall/winter.
