Coasting

This pretty much sums up our sweet summer this year: beach and some more beach. Morning swim and evening swim and everything in between.... We all loved it and miss it terribly now... It seems that summer is over (and it's not even September yet!!). The beach by our summer house is so kiddie friendly, you can walk for a kilometer and still just have the water up to your tummy. This is where I grew up and no better place for kids. Fingers crossed we will have an indian summer a bit later in September.

PS.: Lykke shot the first picture of me jumping, pretty darn cool!

La Coqueta AW14

Fall/winter collections are slowly working there way in to the shops!. I have a small list and I will try to stick to it, more on that list later... This is a sneak peek of Spanish brand La Coqueta. They always do really cute traditional styles with a cool color pallet to go with it. My favorites are the clean Cala jumper (last pic on the right) for both boys and girls (it comes in a really nice dark red color as well). This collection will be released tomorrow (Monday) so head on over and have a look at the whole collection!.

Still life, sort of...

Not exactly, but looking back at our summer vacation it sure looks like it... We had our family close by, all the kids running around all the time and us grown-ups trying to enjoy that first cup of coffee in peace. The days were so hot and we spent most of the time on the beach. We stayed in our summer house in Sweden for four weeks and It was the best vacation ever!!. Me and hubby also snuck off to Copenhagen for two days and one night (yes, we were counting every hour). My plan was to keep up with the blog and all my other projects but I hardly had time to answer e-mails.... I guess that's a good thing!. Soooo, that means I have a few pics to share...stay tuned.

1.Our meadow. 2.Josef and cousin Ellis. 3.Sandy feet means happy feet. 4.Making breakfast (Lykkes first scrambled eggs!). 5.Horses!! They were just down the road from our summer house for a few weeks. Loved it!. 6. Nanna and Lykke right before bedtime. 7.On top of the world. 8.Levi are pretty excited about our new 'Thonet' chair from Objektum (check it out, they have so many nice things!). Or maybe he just had an ice cream?.

Swedish Crayfish Party

 

We had our crayfish party at the summerhouse a bit early this year. It's just something I don't want to risk missing when I'm in Sweden at this time of year!. We had loads of crayfish and shrimp and my sister made the best traditional Västerbotten pie, all this with cold beer and frosty Swedish snaps. These parties are always a bit crazy with all the kids and this year we also had my sisters twins, who just turned 6 months.

Evening swim

All you need is a towel, something to get wet in and red wine in plastic glasses. I love warm summer evenings and going for a late evening swim is what summer is all about!.

Paris is Always a Good Idea

Yup, still in Paris here on the blog!. Just wanted to show a little selection of pictures from my wekend besides being at Playtime. I actually don't mind traveling alone, I love to wonder around in the city and have coffee breaks whenever I want to, go in and out of shops as I please and just explore different areas. It was both sunny and warm and rainy and gray that weekend but I managed to have a pretty great time anyway!. 1.The city is so pretty! 2.Playtime Paris head office. 3.Favorite kids shop in Paris: Talc. 4.Favorite hotel in the city: Mama Shelter. 5.My roof for one night: Hotel Paradis. 6.Coffee break. 7.Ice cream break with a photographer friend and her sweet kids. 8.Party at Playtime. 9. Lovely Elisabeth from Norwegian brand Jumina having Cotton Candy. 10.The perfect summerhouse gift for a little boy and girl: a boat night light. Love it!

Favorites from Playtime #2


No, I'm not still in Paris... but I'm on vacation so the blog might also be, at least a little bit!. I still have some goodies from Playtime to show you guys though: Caramel Baby and Child  (pic. 1–2) always seem to tick all my boxes. It's wearable and just dressy enough . I loved the vintage styling and their stand was just so cute. NYC based brand, Oeuf, was a real surprise this season. Lot's of new styles, patterns and colors. Ketiketa is a French brand and makes the most delicate clothes, bedlinen and decorative accessories. I adore the exotic prints, delicate colours and the whole natural look and feel.

Playtime Paris Favorites #1

It's so hard to make a selection from all the great brands I saw this weekend. That being said there is always somebody who stands out and catches your eye, here are a few favorites (1 out of 3). Pierrot la Lune (two first pics) has made a lovely spring/summer collection filled with soft summer knits, comfortable dresses for girls and shirts for boys. Adeline Affre (pic. 3–4) is kind of a newcomer, she makes really cute and playful jewellery for kids and also showed a new home collection this time. Blankets, pillows and bags all in colorful patterns, I left wanting more (...like everything). Danish shoe brand Angulus was like a candy store... shiny pastels mixed with classic navy and black leather. The way to go... Norwegian brand Jumina (last two pics) is always like a fairytale, fun and whimsical. Bows, dots and kites is what to expect from summer 2015. We can't wait!.
