I’ve missed you…
I’ve missed you…
I’ve got a few days of vacation time coming up this week. I’ve got a few projects planned for the week, but more importantly, the whole family is going to enjoy a few days off. Just relax and enjoy some time together.
It’s time for sleeping in, playing games, reading books, eating out and watching The Brothers Lionheart by Astrid Lindgren with my daughter. We finished the book last week, and now we just need to find the movie somewhere.
Hopefully, my daughter will join me in some DIY projects. We’re planning a make over of her room, and it would be cool for her to create a few things for the room herself. I kind of like these paper fruit prints made out of colored tissue paper. Find out how to make them on The lovely drawer.
Last weekend we moved a few things in her room, and I’ve been cleaning out some of her stuff yesterday. It’s time to add some new and fresh items and welcome spring. The sun has been shining all day yesterday, and I’ve even cleaned her room with one window open, while singing along to some music. What a fantastic time of the year we’re approaching.
I’m collecting cool prints to make a picture wall in her room. This one is already in my boy’s room, but I think I’m going to add it in her room as well.

I know I normally don’t write about movies here, but I was just watching the official trailer for the movie Me before you, based on the novel by Jojo Moyes. The novel had me weeping for quite some time. The last novel, which made me cry like this was A crack in forever by Jeannie Brewer, which you should read, if you haven’t already.
I have to see the movie, to see if it can live up to the book – it’ll be in cinemas June 3, 2016.
Do you remember the super cute bag from Zara, which I showed you in this post? The one from their ss16 girls collection. Well, I went back a few days later to find out that it was sold out.
A few days later, I still thought about the bag, and I went back. This time it was back in stock, and I hit ‘Buy’ so fast, you wouldn’t believe it. Now I’m waiting for it to arrive.
And no, I didn’t buy it for my girl, I hope that I can use it as a small bag myself. If not, then I’m pretty sure she’ll be more than willing to take it off my hands and use it herself.
It seems like the never ending story around here. When you think you’re done with the kids’ rooms, then it’s almost time to start re-decorating again.
Okay, I’m partly to blame, I know. I tend to find cool new solutions, and then I want to implement some of them in their rooms.
But apart from my ideas, we haven’t found the right storage solution either. We keep trying new things, but after a while, we get tired of it. It’s either too big, too small, too (insert word), I’m sure we’ve tried it all.
The beds are another problem. It would be so practical if our daughter had a bigger bed, with storage underneath. A cool solution for our son’s room would be a bed like the one in this apartment. It would create the space he needs on the floor, and he would have a nook underneath, where he could have a TV or something similar.

I mentioned earlier that my little girl turns 10 years old this month. She’s starting to care more about which clothes we buy, and she likes to try out different outfits. It’s so adorable seeing her grow in size, but also as a person.
I’ve collected a few pieces of clothing from her wishlist, all of which she carefully picked out herself.
1. Blouse with lots of stars from Petit by Sofie Schnoor
2. Nitela limited slim fit jeans from Name it
3. Cloud bag from Zara
4. Cool ‘leather’ jacket from Zara
5. Misty grey Alaine jeans from Molo
6. Cool black boots with some pretty cool details from Zara
7. Peggy Knit from Soft Gallery
8. Super cute bag from Zara – I might have to get one for myself as well
