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.
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.
Lately, I’ve been re-watching the 90s television show Felicity, starring Keri Russell as the young Felicity Porter, who follows a high school crush to New York City. I’m having so much fun watching this show again. I’m thrown back in time – and I’m finding myself considering if I’m a team Ben or a team Noel again (gotta love this love triangle).
You have to keep in mind that this show was before social media – and imagine the famous haircut scene – well, I was taken by surprise – big time back then – sitting there in my childhood home watching Felicity’s now short hair. Imagine that a haircut could turn into a popular culture reference in lots of other television shows. Check out the list on wikipedia And what about the shapeless jeans and sweaters – gotta love (or hate) the 90s right? That said, I actually miss the old school phones sometimes. And the cassette recorder – it’s not quite the same on a mobile, is it?
Take a walk down memory lane an watch these clips:
If you’re interested in some more Felicity check out the Felicity reunion here – and if that’s not enough – then it’s time to start watching. Right now I’m half way through season 2.
So tell me, would you watch it again? What’s your favourite moment? Are you Team Ben or Team Noel? And what about that cute Simon Rex? Now I really feel like watching another episode. Take care and go watch it.
This is my dream kitchen. Our kitchen was build in the 1990s by a father and his son. To be honest, they had horrible taste – but I’m also quite sure that taste wasn’t the issue – cost was. It’s an everyday hassle, when you have to cook for a family in our kitchen. That’s why a new kitchen is on top of my wishlist.
We’ve made a few changes already, but the long haul is still ahead of us. We’ve created a kitchen island using fronts from IKEA – like the ones seen in these pictures. I love the light grey color, and the more I think about it, the more I’m leaning towards a total makeover using these fronts. It’s nice and simple, and I keep returning to pictures like these, when I’m looking for inspiration.
