vipp kitchen

VippBlackKitchenSwartz031-754x1024 In my opinion the black vipp kitchen is the perfect kitchen. When I dream about a new kitchen (which is pretty much all the time) this is the one stuck in my mind. It is so simple and so clean cut and timeless, which is very important to me. Hopefully, one day my kitchen would look a little like this one.

Friday cravings

What an amazing week. It has been all about family time, getting ready for our summer holiday and our trip to Legoland. The kids are ecstatic and to tell you the truth, so am I. I’ve only been there once before, when my daughter was about three years old.

Before the weekend, I’ll leave you with a few of the things currently on my craving list.
Friday Cravings collage A piece of this Matcha swirl cheesecake, which I found at A Cozy Kitchen.

Temporary Tattoos by Ylva Skarp – I just love love love Ylva Skarp’s new tattoos. I don’t have any real tattoos myself, and I don’t think I’ll ever get one (I don’t like needles), but these would be pretty cool this summer.

Some homemade strawberry white chocolate popsicles like the ones found at tutti dolci. I really have to give these a go this weekend. It would be the perfect mother daughter activity on Sunday.

Walks along the beach with my family. I wouldn’t mind a view like the one in the picture from pablitoblue’s flickr account. Maybe enjoy an ice cream as well.

Insta love #3

As you might have noticed I’ve been attending the Blogging Your Way Instagram Bootcamp for the last two weeks. I’ve meet a lot of talented IGers, and I want to share some of them with you and spread a little insta love.

My first pick is Ciara Elliott @ciaraelliott. It all started because of this book: The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt. Ciara recommended another book, which I added to my summer reading list right away. The Opposite of Loneliness by Marian Keegan will arrive in my mailbox this week and I cannot wait to read it. Thanks Ciara and I look forward to following your IG account from now on. Here is a small collection of her beautiful pictures. Hope you’ll enjoy. Insta love ciara Elliott collage Ciara has got some amazing photos of her family as well, hop on over and check out her profile @ciaraelliott.

Have a lovely day <3

Small living and a busy weekend

After a busy weekend which included a school fair, gin & tonics on a Friday night, a Rasmus Seebach family koncert in pouring rain, testing our new grill, taking pictures of our home, BYW homework, baking, cleaning the whole house, a birthday and a playdate for the kids and our girl had two soccer matches on Saturday morning. Well, no wonder I’m a bit tired today.

SFD40342429758E4F5F9E78B5772062A9D9 Today, I’ll hopefully catch up with my last two BYW lessons, work on the web shop and dream a little about a trip to Gothenburg. This small apartment on Alvhem, made me want to go even more. We’ve taken a trip to Gothenburg the last two summers with our girl, but we haven’t planned one this year. But maybe there is still time. While I dream, you can pick up a few interesting interior ideas from this beautiful home.

Have a lovely Monday <3

6 books for summer

During the last 6 months, I’ve been reading a lot more books again. I really missed it, but I just didn’t have time or my mind was full of other things, I had to deal with. But now I recognize myself again, and I’m glad to say that now I’m always in the middle of reading one or two books. It’s such a fantastic change, and now I find myself browsing the net for books to read this summer. What will you be reading this summer?

Here are a few books on my list:
Books One books two 1. Hverdagsglamour by blogger Emily Salomon
2. The Opposite of Loneliness: Essays & Stories by Marina Keegan – Thanks @ciaraelliott for the recommendation.
3. Kinfolk issue sixteen
4. Better Than Before by Gretchen Rubin
5. The Monocle Guide to Good Business
6. Before I go by Colleen Oakley
