MiniØya 2014

Yup, a few weeks late on this one (to the point I almost forgot I was suppose to post it)... Anyway, MiniØya is a tradition for us, Lykke LOVES it and we always team up with good friends. A day filled with sun, music, ice cream, Pippi Långstrump and cotton candy... Pretty damn perfect if you ask me!.


Oeuf introduces VIVA BROOKLYN

I know, the last thing you are thinking about is wool right now... I just had to share the upcoming collection from NYC based Oeuf. They got their inspiration from the energy and attitude of Brooklyn. It's as usual very playful and easy to wear. Oeuf invites kids to feel free, to play, to dance, to create, to dress-up and to express themselves. Who doesn't want to look like cool little Brooklynites??.

These garments are hand-knitted in 100% baby alpaca, a luxurious and sustainable material. Oeuf believes in fair trade and partners with a cooperative in Bolivia, allowing the women to practice their craft in a favorable working environment.

In Norway you can get it at Jungelensleker.

The End of May

We have had a real taste of summer with a weekend at the summerhouse. Lazy days on the beach, picking meadow flowers around the house and just spending time with the children and my family.

May 17th


Happy birthday Norway!!. We celebrated the Norwegian independence day this weekend. For us non-norwegians, May 17 is still a day of celebration, but with a little less pressure. We might normally start the day at a champagne breakfast with friends but instead we spent a lazy day wondering about our neighbourhood and the big park nearby. It was nice and warm outside and happy norwegians all around. 

Notes on clothes: Lykke wears a dress by Wolf and Rita from Scandinavian Minimall and Salt Water Sandals


Shakes, rattle and roll

The tummy was one happy camper after two hours at The Nighthawk Diner a couple of days ago... Burgers, milkshakes and pancakes. A perfect way to spend an afternoon if you ask me... and a tiny bit chaotic with 2 crazy girls and one curious little boy. 


Instagram snaps//April

One step closer to summer, right!?. We have had a pretty busy April, busy but fun!. Our baby boy turned 1, yes 1!!. Where did time go??. Also trying to find a balance between family, work, and all the other things you want to do... Slowly getting there... Anyway, catch you later April!.

Sunday in the City

Well, this weekend summer popped by. Not sure how long she'll stay, but we sure enjoyed it!. My absolute favorite spot for a lazy brunch in Oslo is Kolonihagen. It's an all eco café and restaurant in a lovely backyard. Come here for lunch, dessert and coffee, or a romantic dinner... Yes, I'll take all of the above!.

New in: Our brand new Bugaboo Bee, just the perfect city stroller, easy and cool, we love it as do our two monkeys. We have had our Cameleon for four years now, it has been a real work horse but it was time for something more compact for the crowded city streets.
