Advent is just around the corner. Are you ready? If now, I’ve got some last minute ideas for you. Some of them might need a bit of shopping before you can create them at home, but you’ve still got a few days left.
I ended up using my Kubus candle holder from ByLassen again this year. I like in nice and simple – also when it comes to Christmas decorations. I’m a bit of a weird Christmas freak, when it comes to decorations. Truth be told, I’m more of a winter decorations kind of gal. I’ll add snowflakes, trees, snow, glitter, silver, some black, some lights and some toy animals and cars – and then I’m ready for December

Winter reading is one of my absolute favourite activities. Snuggling up in the sofa with a good book and a warm cup of coffee – that’s magical – just like the print says. I’m reading books more than I’ve done in years – and I’m loving it. I look forward to all the books I’m going to read this autumn and winter. I’ve got everything from fiction, cookbooks and magazines on my list right now.
My top 5 winter reads
A Little Life – Hanya Yanagihara – I’m reading it right now – and loving every page of it
Green Kitchen Smoothies – David Frenkiel & Luise Vindahl – I’ll make some delicious smoothies from this book all winter
After You – Jojo Moyes – It’s about time I find out what Lou’s been up to after Will died
Kinfolk vol 21 – a great source of inspiration
Cereal City Guide – Copenhagen – lovely city lovely guide book

The Christmas catalogue has landed. As some of you are well aware of, I’m quite a Christmas fan. I love decorating the house, love the cozy atmosphere, love baking with the kids and love finding small advent presents. For me it’s not really Christmas, if I haven’t been to Hamburg in late November/start december. There is something so cheesy, and yet so wonderful about all the Christmas markets and activity in the city. It’s the perfect way to kick off a wonderful season.
One of the other ‘before Christmas traditions’ that I’ve got is to go to Sostrene Grene quite a few times. I always buy something from their Christmas collection, and this year is no exception. Today I want to share some of my favourite items from this year’s collection and their Christmas catalogue.

A few days ago I read that it would be a very cold winter here in Denmark this year. I’v bought some things to prepare the kids for the cold weather, but I’ve still got a few more things on my list before I’m fully ready for snow. Over the years I’ve tried lots of different brands when it comes to kids clothing. I’ve found a few favourite brands, which I know will keep them warm and dry during the winter season.
Boy: Hummel Parka Jacket | Ecco Urban snowboard boots | Mads Nørgaard Trio Rib Acrino | Molo Mitzy ARMS black
Girl: Molo Peace jacket black | grey D-xel hat | Hummel Stadil Super Sparkle sneaksers | Creamie scarf | MJM Mitten Napalan Black

Do you know that feeling? You look at one of your friends and you wonder: how on earth does she do it? I’m talking about everyday life. Work. Family. Balance. Life. Fun. And it all looks so easy peasy.
We’ve been having some crazy weeks lately. And between work, picking up kids, soccer practice and cooking dinner, well we haven’t managed much else.
This weekend I had planned to clean the house (for a party next week), and simply pull the plug, and just relax with my family. I’ve managed most of it, but I could use one or two more days just to get my energy back on track.
I’ll leave you with some beautiful pictures from Montana, which I really love.
