So what have I been up to lately…

say yes pink

Not blogging that’s for sure. But I’ve missed it so much, and it’s the same every time I take a break (voluntarily or not) I end up missing this place a lot.

For the past 3 months, I’ve been studying to get a diploma in Digital marketing and getting numerous Google certifications. It’s been hard work, and last week I aced the exam. Hopefully, I’ll be able to find a job within this field of work. I’m willing to work freelance, part time and full time, I just really want to contribute to something meaningful. So if you know anyone, got a small business yourself or you’re looking to hire someone like me – check out my profile on LinkedIn. And let’s have a talk.

Making room for storage in our daughter’s room
Apart from studying, I’m also planning a bit of a project at home. In the next couple of weeks, we’ll be redecorating our daughter’s room (again). Due to some minor problems, we need to remove her closet and give that corner some air. Therefore, we decided to go with the solution we picked for our boy’s room. It’s simple, looks amazing, and perfect for storage. We’ve bought the cabinets from Ikea, and our hallway is now filled with boxes, waiting to be assembled. Great when we’ve got a few birthday parties coming up.

I still remember seeing this blog post many years ago and loving every detail of it the cabinets. It took me some time, but I finally convinced my husband that it would be perfect for our boy’s room. Since we’re doing something similar in our girl’s room, well we haven’t regretted it once. Now there’s just the hard work ahead of us – but I cannot wait to decorate and add some finishing touches in there. I hope it’ll last a bit longer this time around.

Back to work

Monday you bastard print

Today my summer vacation ended. Right now I’m on my way to Copenhagen for a few days. It’s pure work-related, so unfortunately, I will not have time to visit any shops or get a great cup of coffee while I’m there, but I’ll post a few pictures on Instagram that’s for sure. It also means that I have to leave the kids. They will stay with my parents on and off for the next week, while my husband and I are at work.

In Gothenburg I found a sign with the above statement. That’s exactly how I’m feeling right now. I so wanted  to add another week to my vacation. However, that’s not an option. Anyway,  I’m loving the statement – and might have to buy this print on Etsy.

For those of you out there still on vacation – remember to enjoy every minute of it.

Have a lovely week.

Ich bin ein Berliner…

…or so I wish.

Jeg har et eller andet med Berlin. Det er bare én stor melting pot af kultur, historie, frihed, design og livsglæde. Det er så fantastisk at spadsere rundt i en by, hvor man på få sekunder kan gå fra top moderne arkitektur til gamle bygninger med skudhuller i muren. I mit hoved er det bare spitsenklasse. Jeg har før bragt boligreportager fra den fede side fvf, og er endnu engang blevet inspireret af en lejlighed på siden. Så slap af, og træd indenfor i Lizzy McGrath’s lejlighed i Friedrichshain, Berlin.

Lizzy McGrath er chefredaktør på siden BANGBANGBERLIN.com, som er godt på vej til at blive stedet, hvor du finder arrangementer som bangs i Berlin. Som freelancer er Lizzy McGrath vandt til, at der den ene måned er penge til en ny sofa og et TV, og at der måske slet ikke er råd til boligprojekter de næste par måneder. Derfor er hendes lejlighed et godt mix af loppemarkedsfund, rejseminder og pop kultur.

Se mange flere billeder og læs mere om Lizzy McGrath her.
