Our last days in Sweden

We've been back for little over a week in Oslo. Back to work and daycare for hubby and Lykke and back to my routine with my little man. Our last days at the summerhouse went by way too fast. I already miss our morning walks and long breakfasts looking out on the meadow and beach. But the best part was locking out the weather, lighting the fire in the evening and just siting and talking.

Notes on clothes: L wears a floral dress from La Coqueta, eco-stocking from KidsCase from web shop Medveten Mini. Mustard eco-woll sweater for the little guy by Oeuf from Jungelensleker in Oslo. 


A day in Copenhagen

Whenever we are down South me and hubby try to get away to Copenhagen (no kids allowed!), it's one of my favorite cities –great food, cozy neighbourhoods and shops. We used our day off to eat and drink, shop and explore the city. The list is long, but here are a few favorites: Deco: Playtype, Beau Marche. Food: Les Trois Cochons and Beau Marche. Kids: Limonade, Astas and Bonpoint.


Mini Rodini SS14


A small break from all the Christmas pics... What's better then a sneak peek of what Swedish Mini Rodini has to offer this spring/summer. The collecton is called Mini Zoologist and is their most sustainable collection yet, organic cottons and recycled polyesters (yay!). I love the cool patterns taken straight out of the Amazonas. The collection will be in store from January 28th.


Christmas Eve

One sister abroad and the other about to deliver twins (!!) in Stockholm meant a quiet first Christmas Eve in our new holiday home. A great traditional dinner with my parents, served with Swedish Christmas porter and both Norwegian and Swedish aquavit. Yes, I'm still full... It is the custom in Scandinavia that we open our gifts after dinner and L was pretty excited just before Santa paid us a visit...

Notes on clothes: Levi wears dotted shirt from Caramel Baby and Child. Lykke got this green floral dress from La Coqueta just in time for the big day. Art Cards from all-organic web shop Medveten Mini


Just blown away...

First, Merry Christmas!. I hope everyone had a good one. Second, so sorry for the lack of posts here on the blog. To be honest, there hasn't been enough energy to do anything. I pretty much didn't sleep for the first week we were here, my poor boy has been sick and that has been pretty rough on both him and me... We are now all together as a family and things are (fingers crossed) getting slightly better. We are spending all our time at the summer house/cabin and it's just the best cure ever. Catching up on sleep, taking looooong walks and getting help from my parents. We celebrated our first Christmas here yesterday (pics. to come) and are making our own traditions as a family. No white Christmas in the South of Sweden, more dark and windy, which actually has been fine. We just put another log on the fire and sink into the sofa with a big glass of mulled wine.  

Notes on clothes: Levi is wearing a new favorite wool brand, Lilli and Leopold. It is the softest ever and fits him like a glove. Great colors to choose from and all organic merino wool. Check it out!. Lykke wears Bobo Choses dress and wool jumper from Babaá


Christmas goodies

Before we left for Sweden I managed to get my hands on some Christmas goodies for the kids. Skirt, blouse and blue baby pants from Ketiketa, red BOBO CHOSES playsuite and cardigan from Noro. I adore French brand Ketiketa, they make the most beautiful clothes, bed linnen and accessories. They works in small scale, with natural fabrics and materials only, they use traditional techniques, working with carvers, independent printers, and small sewing workshops as well as socially motivated industries. Love supporting brands like this!

Find everything over at web shop Shan and Toad


Tinycottons SS14

Remember this cute Spanish brand, Tinycottons?. I have tried a few pieces for Levi and it's just the softest, it's all 100% pima cotton!. This is a preview of their summer 2014 collection and it's pretty hard not to love it!. Fun, retro illustrations taken from the French Riviera, I especially love the retro swimmers. Go check out the fall collection, oh, and get 30% off right now (use the code XMAS30). 



Our urban Christmas tree hunting last week... I picked up L from daycare and met up with Lee at our local Christmas tree market, we chose the bushiest one there and Lee carried it all the way home. Now it's in our livingroom all decorated and pretty. I wasn't sure we would get one this year, too tired to even think about it, but I'm glad hubby convinced me. I love it, it's so cosy and it makes me smile every day!.

A little pre-Christmas sale for my readers from my lovely sponsor, Brebí Little Consept Store. Take 20% off on ALL the new-in items. Use the code junior.

Mocassins from Tocotò Vintage and sweaterjumpsuit and bag from BOBO CHOSES. Enjoy (it ends the 9th of December)!.



These pj's are on my Christmas list of gifts to the little lady in the house... I love the paisley pattern, and I know she will love it –because it's almost like a dress, a nightdress (yes, we are in that phase now, and have been for a while)... These particular pyjamas are from Caramel Baby and Child and you can choose from traditional pyjamas with drawstring tie, or for girls who refuse to wear pants, this nightdress. For that extra special touch, you can get it monogrammed with two initials of your choice, how about that!?.
