Want Wear Need Read in October

Want Wear Need Read October

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.

Winter reading is one of my absolute favourite activities. Snuggling up in the sofa with a good book and a warm cup of coffee – that’s magical – just like the print says. I’m reading books more than I’ve done in years – and I’m loving it. I look forward to all the books I’m going to read this autumn and winter. I’ve got everything from fiction, cookbooks and magazines on my list right now.

My top 5 winter reads

A Little Life – Hanya Yanagihara – I’m reading it right now – and loving every page of it
Green Kitchen Smoothies – David Frenkiel & Luise Vindahl – I’ll make some delicious smoothies from this book all winter
After You – Jojo Moyes – It’s about time I find out what Lou’s been up to after Will died
Kinfolk vol 21 – a great source of inspiration
Cereal City Guide – Copenhagen – lovely city lovely guide book

Friday craving from Kinfolk

The kinfolk home

Actually, I don’t have a lot on my Friday craving list this week. I haven’t stumpled upon that much since last week – maybe it’s because I’m still wrapped up in holiday mood. However, I did see some really exciting news. In October I’ll have one item on my craving list: the new Kinfolk book – The Kinfolk Home.

This is what Amazon writes about the book:

The Kinfolk Home takes readers inside 35 homes around the world, from the United States, Scandinavia, Japan, and beyond. Some have constructed modern urban homes from blueprints, while others nurture their home’s long history. What all of these spaces have in common is that they’ve been put together carefully, slowly, and with great intention. Featuring inviting photographs and insightful profiles, interviews, and essays, each home tour is guaranteed to inspire.

Summer reading – Kinfolk

Summer reading is the best, don’t you think? This summer I’m reading on our iPad as well as ordinary books and magazines. And I just wanted to recommend a pretty cool magazine. It’s called Kinfolk.

Since I’m reading it on the iPad, I only have access to volume two and three. Hopefully, volume one and four will be available too soon.

Volume three of Kinfolk explores how we all might benefit from incorporating more of the things we love into our daily routines instead of saving them for the weekend or our next vacation.

I’m trying to change exactly that in my own life just now, so I’m really enjoying reading the essays and personal stories. And I love the thought that we should all welcome food, community, and simplicity into our lives as regularly as possible. I’m so inspired by the content in this magazine.

I thought about getting a subscription, because I like to sit with the actual thing in my hands – yes when it comes to books and magazines – I still prefer the printed ones. But unfortunately it was really expensive, so for now, I enjoy swiping the pages instead of turning them.

I hope you’ll be just as inspired as me, if you do decide to check it out. You can read about the different issues right here, and buy the printed ones as well. And do let me know what you’re reading this summer.
