My girl recently turned 8 years old and my not so girly girl wanted to add pink to her room. I never agreed to painting her walls pink when she was little, but this I can live with.
So instead of adding tons of toys to her wish list, she added a few things for her room. Here are a few examples of the things which found their way to her list this year.
1. String pocket 2. Pink Muuto E27 3. Hay ‘Candy’ Dot Cushion Steelcut Trio 4. Ikea Klippan sofa 5. Hay table DLM New Lavender XL 6. Magnetic wallpaper with Rabbit from Groovy Magnets 7. Hay Bed Linen S&B Minimal Collection Syrup
Just a quick hello from me. I’m taking things slow today, playing games with my son, writing birthday cards with my girl, planning next week, looking for inspiration in our new cookbook (New York Cult recipes), getting things done in the kitchen and uploading pictures and text for sale on Den Blå Avis. I’ve collected a lot of toys – and in order to make room for the new stuff, we need to sell some of it.
In a minute, I’ll enjoy yet another delicious soup made by my husband. Have a lovely Sunday evening out there.

After spending a few days after Christmas just the four of us, relaxing and playing with the kids, creating different Lego City items, and drawing with Posca markers, but also the obligatory sitting and eating around different tables during the week, well now I’m ready to embrace 2014.
As much as I love getting ready for Christmas with all the beautiful Christmas decorations and the baking – well I’m enjoying all the ‘new’ space I’ve suddenly got around the house again. It’s so bright and clean again. I’ve got one white wall in particular – and I cannot wait to add a few prints and maybe some shelves.
After seeing a few fantastic wall calendars online, I’m tempted to get my hands on one of them. Right now I’m trying to decide between the ‘Scratched Calendar’ by Coco Lapine or Kristina Krogh’s black calendar.

Believe it or not I haven’t gotten around to hanging my beautiful Muuto dots on the wall yet. But I’m planning on doing it this weekend. I had a look around Pinterest for inspiration.

I get the feeling that my affair with Kähler will not end any time soon. I’ve been looking at some pictures of their AW13 collection, and I’m sensing quite a few must-have items already. I’ve tried to narrow it down to just a few pieces, but it’s really difficult. So here goes.
I didn’t plan for it to take this long. But one day took the other – and it turned into a month.
When July came around, I knew I needed to take a break and figure out what to do next. I was extremely tired and I did not enjoy writing posts anymore – it had become yet another duty on my list. And I couldn’t take it anymore. I knew I had to take a good look at my life and start changing the things I didn’t like.
I took a good long vacation with my family – only posted a few pictures on Instagram and pinned a little on Pinterest on the iPad. ButI never once opened my Mac. I hardly watched TV (only a little Netflix – did you watch Orange is the new black?) and I really loved being offline for so long.
It was so much fun to just play and be with the kids and I also did manage to get time to relax and read as well (Finished Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn – but none of my friends have read it, so I need to find a reading group so that I can discuss it with someone).
Of course one month cannot cure it all, but it helps to clear out a few thoughts. I said to myself that I would not start writing posts here on Espresso Moments before I was ready to get really inspired and passionate about it again. Then last week, I started thinking about different blog posts, design projects and about blogging again – so I guess it’s time.
I’m ready to start blogging again <3
