My fall wishlist

Today, I want to share my fall wishlist with you. I’ve been doing a bit of shopping for the kids – getting them ready for fall/winter. But this year, I’m quite ready for the season to change myself. Unlike any other year, I come prepared. I actually did my own shopping before making sure the kids had what they’ll need to get through. The worst part about that is that I now find myself drooling over all the beautiful fall items in the shops right now. I might have to buy just a tiny bit more – just for me.

Gorgeous glitter Chelsea boots from Sofie Schnoor. Oh, I want them right this minute!
Pack of 40 hair tie ball 
Cute little brown handbag for work
Oversized ochre cardigan
Really cute rose cashmere sweater
Black cashmere pants – for those cozy winter days
Did anyone say hygge? These slippers are to die for
A little bowl to keep all my bits and pieces in the bathroom

5 books to read this fall

It’s time for some serious fall reading. The weather is cold and wet, and it’s time for me (and you) to enjoy even more great books inside under a blanket.

I’ve been offline with my family for the last couple of days. But now I’m back with a list of books currently on my wishlist. Some of them are already on their way to my mailbox. The past few days, we’ve been taking things slow, enjoying some time with our family in Aarhus and in Hjørrring, been fighting a cold (it’s that time of the year again), but now it’s time to return to ‘real life’ again.

Coffee, Paris and life hacks

As you might have guessed by now, I’m pretty passionate about my coffee. And when I came across some of these books, I had to have them. I remember our travel destinations based on where to get the best cup of coffee – and I always research before we go. I would never land in a city and not know where to get a decent cup of coffee. I’m sure two of these books will be of much help in the future. The other ones are simply based on interest and curiosity. I always love reading about new things and finding inspiration in that.

My autumn wishlist

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.

Autumn wishlist

Shopping list:
Striped Mads Nørgaard sweater
Saga Tusk Necklace
Pink slippers
Cashmere dress
Dress with dots
Long jacket
Boot Loafers

I’m in the mood for some online shopping…

Urban Outfitters sep 2017 (one) Urban Outfitters sep 2017 (two)

Last week, when we were in Copenhagen, we stopped by Urban Outfitters – but my daughter Cathrine was not impressed. I guess I had failed to mention that they change the goods quite a bit – and she had hoped to buy a thing, she’d seen in February. However, we’ve look online, and found a few other cool items. Now I just feel like clicking it all home and start decorating for fall/winter.

Shopping list:
#1 Umbra Shift Sediment Bowl + Plate set
#2 Amaretti Designs Paint Splatter Mini Notebook
#3 Reversible Sequin Pineapple Throw Pillow
#4 Plymouth Sliding Storage Mirror
#5 Corkcicle Heathered Canteen Water Bottle
#6 12-Piece Modern Dinnerware set
#7 Brogamats Yoga Joes Set (aren’t they fun?)
#8 The Five-Minute Journal by Intelligent Change
#9 Peace Sign Light Sculpture
#10 Cool Beans Coffee Ice Cube Tray
#11 12-piece Speckled Dinnerware Set
#12 Tolletries Dual Pocket Shower Organizer

Too cool for school – boy edition

Too cool for school - boy

What about your boy – is he too cool for school when it comes to clothes? Last Sunday I shoved you what I would buy for my soon to be teenage girl right now. I love this season, because if you ask me there’s nothing better than to curl up in some comfy clothes and just enjoy the beautiful weather. I absolutely love fall – to me it’s the most beautiful time of the year.

My son is the quite opposite of my daughter – he’s been very aware and direct when it comes to clothes ever since he was little. He loves cool clothes – and this summer he wanted to look like dad when he had the chance. So I figured, why not buy a blue shirt for him as well. He’ll love it, and I’ll enjoy watching my hubby and his mini-me walking around.

I’ll add a few more posts about what I’ll end up buying this season – but this one will focus on items from Zara. I like the quality (it’s not half bad), it’s rather cheap and they’ve got some pretty cool items each season. I’ll add items from more expensive Danish brands as well, and I love going on a clothes hunt in order to find cool clothes for the little guy.

Shopping list:
Bag with a splash of paint
Blue shirt (Like father like son)
Black scarf
Basic fall/winter jacket
Cool rock shoes
Relaxing black pants
Grey sweater

Too cool for school – Girl clothes edition

Today, I want to share some cool back to school clothes with you. This post will only focus on clothes for girls – in this case my tween girl. I’ll then return with a boy edition in a few days. So, this back to school thing… well we’ve been hit by the “back to school craziness” big time this year. We’ve had way too much to take care of in the past two weeks, with our boy participating in a new television show for kids (which by the way was a fantastic experience – but more about that later, when they are done filming the show) and meetings. Our girl is now on 5th grade ans she’s loving every minute of it – she’s learning the German language now. She’s turning into a real teen before our very eyes, and clothes is very much a part of her transformation. Could someone please turn back time?

She’s much more into having “the right clothes” than she’s ever been. She knows what she wants, and it’s so funny listening to her talk about wanting “blogger glasses” and so on. I’ve made a collage of some of the clothes from Zara, which is currently on her wishlist.
