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.

PETIT BATEAU by MARIA SKAPPEL 

I had the pleasure of checking out the new collaboration between Petit Bateau and Norwegian designer/blogger Maria Skappel. It's a small capsule collection with some really cute prints and the typical Petit Bateau styles we all love. It's made from the softest wool with cotton on the inside so it won't itch. The collection will be out in August (Norway only).

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.

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.

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.

Sitting pretty

A cup of coffee, a little bit of play and a quick snack before taking a walk with both our monkeys. Pretty much our morning routine when we are down south. It's such a great way to start the day!.

New In: We just got our new Stokke Steps Chair for our little boy and it's great! It looks cool and is a really smart design. It has different accessories so it can be used from birth and for the years to come. Go check it out!.

Easter in the South of Sweden

We are back in Oslo after over a week off in Sweden. So sorry for the silence here on the blog, a mix of stupid technical problems and just taking some time "switching off". Anyway, it has been so nice to spend the days outside and the evenings inside by the fire. Taking walks and drinking coffee, oh, and stuffing yourself with Easter candy. More to come...
