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.

I’m always reading blogs, looking at Instagram and Pinterest, reading magazines and looking into people’s houses – yup I do that, when I’m walking outside and it’s dark. It’s a great way to find inspiration. Therefore, my wishlist is an ongoing list, which I add stuff to weekly. I’ve got one on Pinterest (the visual version) and I’ve got one in a notebook.
This autumn I’ve added some really cool things to my wishlist – and most of them will probably make it to my Christmas wishlist as well. I love this season, and the excuse to add a few new things to your home. It really needs to be cozy, when you have to stay inside so much. What are the things you’re looking for that will add that cozy feeling to your home this season?
Where to find it:
#1 I’ve found this pretty cool ceramic citrus press, which I would love to test.
#2 One of the absolute highlights I’ve found this week are the photographs taken by Maria Fynsk Norup. I absolutely adore this one called Morning Flight and I would love for it to hang in my living room.
#3 This little fella is a self watering device, and it’s small and simple, which I love.
#4 Ever since we bought a new sofa I’ve been looking for pillows or pillow cases. This green pillow would add that autumn feeling, which I’m looking for.
#5 If we add a bit of paint (I’ve got some leftovers from when we painted my boy’s room this summer), this Mercury wall lamp would be fantastic in out home.
#6 I’m still obsessed with everything pinkish – and this Afternoon Chair plus dusty rose is no exception. It would look great around our new dining room table (if we ever decide to act on the current choice that is)
#7 Last but not least, I’ve had my eye on this cool wire shelf. This is such a Charlotte -item, because in my head, I can see it in every room in our home. When that happens, I keep thinking about the item, and that when I know I’ll be happy every time I look at it.

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.

This summer we enjoyed a few days in Sweden in the city of Gothenburg. We love coming there and most of the time we just walk around the city and enjoy a quiet afternoon in the park. The kids love it there, and we always find some exciting new spots. I don’t know why we haven’t been inside a Lagerhaus shop before (Big mistake, huge mistake, as Julia Roberts said in Pretty Woman – without further similarities to that movie) We actually went in there just to get a bottle of water, and an hour later we came out. I could have bought much more that we actually did, and so could my daughter. I guess we know where that came from.
When I was looking for tableware for our Minecraft party for my boy, I found myself browsing through their online shop. I ended up not buying anything, but quite a few things ended in my “wannabe” basked. Here’s a look at some of the things, which may or may not end in my actual shopping basket and even make it all the way to the checkout.
Black Sky Night Mug
Suede Cushion Cover
Clear Glass Dome
Hey Good Looking Mat
Glitter Gift Bag, black
Happy B-Day box
Donut Box, pink

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.
