We celebrated Mother's Day today with fresh tulips, coffee, balloons and chocolate cake, oh, and two excited kids. How lucky am I??. Also a BIG kiss to my amazing Mom, and my big sister who just had twin boys!.
Notes on clothes: Lykke wears this super cool dress by French Quenotte from Cissy Wears, we just got it and she loves it!. Levi was luck enough to get this cute Moomin sweatshirt at Lindex, it's a bit too big but it's so adorable on him.
It's the weekend and having a long breakfast together is a highlight for me. I promised to share our favorite smoothies and here is number two: raspberry with banana, avocado and lemon. You will need this: 250 g of frozen raspberries, 1 banana (organic if you have), 1-2 dl apple juice, 1 avocado and a few squirts of lemon. Defrost the berries for a bit and then mix it all together in a food mixer. Yum!.
I had a few hours on Saturday to enjoy Copenhagen, and I did just that!. First stop was breakfast at Granola, I went up and down Værnedamsvej, which host great deco shops, restaurants and small mouth-watering delis. I might have gone overboard with the shopping part, but i figured i deserved it....you know, for that thing i did last week......in other words, don't tell hubby!. See you soon, favorite city!.
More on a specific shop and new Nordic magazine soon...
Let's stay in Denmark for a while... Pierrot la Lune is a new Danish kids wear brand that was created in 2013 by designer Emilie Ventujol. The main part of this collection is produced in organic, GOTS-certified cotton and the knitwear is manufactured in 100% Alpaca wool from the Bolivian highlands. I love the loose and airy styles, a great mix of Scandinavian design with the typical French chic touch. Go check out more styles on pierrotlalune.dk.

We try to make at least one type of smoothie during the weekend. Both kids love it (especially Lykke)... It's so great for the extra energy it gives, and the fact that you make something together. I Wanted to share one of our favorites, first up is blueberry smoothie with sour milk and oatmeal: 250 g of frozen blueberry, 1 banana (organic if you have), 2 dl sour milk, 1-2 dl oatmeal.

Well, their spring/summer collection last year was one of my ALL TIME favorites, so pretty impossible to beat. This is BOBO CHOSES SS14. The coolness of this brand and the 70's vibe of this particular collection, I mean, come on!. These are clothes you can play and get dirty in, it works in the city and at the beach. I love it, do you?.
