Last day of March and time for my second monthly list. Here we go!
Travel: When I was about 12 my parents and their friends rented a big boat – pram style – and went through the canals of France. It was quite an interesting experience going through the locks and seeing France from a different perspective. My favorite memory is jumping of the boat, running to a strawberry field picking your own basket and running back to sit on front of the boat eating those sun warm berries. I probably won´t do the exact trip again but seeing this image made me think back.
Shoes: This month is all about comfortable shoes as I (eh…) dropped a very heavy lamp on my foot and it went twice it´s size causing to say the least a little bit of pain. Already have too many Adidas but this pair could easily fit into the collection too. The love for details is constant.
Flower: The ”snow drop” without doubt. Finally signs of Sping all over are garden and everywhere else and it´s gives me the greatest feeling every year.
Outfit: Even though Spring is getting there I´m still into big and chunky knits a while longer. But soon, very soon, there will be an end to that too…
Pic via. Bedroom: I just want it simple at the moment. White crispy sheets, fresh air from an open window and not too many distracting details. And a Paris-view added to that wouldn´t be a problem.
Office: An office with a view. Always preferred comparing to facing a wall in my book. I´m sure most people could come up with great ideas by this desk.
Words: I´m slowly dreaming and working on something that is hopefully becoming reality within not too far ahead. Meanwhile I´m telling myself it´s ok to daydream, that is often how the most fun things come to life. Now I just have to pick the brains of some smart friends to make this daydream come through.
Pic via. Food: After having eaten everything but healthy throughout this Spring break all I dream about is a simple and delicious salad.
Pic via. Series: Last month this category was a book but I´ve decided I´ll keep it open and since I unfortunately don´t have time to read as much as I like I still watch a lot of series tucked in bed at night. Hopefully you´ll find something you haven´t seen or we can at least share the love for something here. This time ”Togetherness” on HBO. Described and ”some people have it figured out, these people don´t”. Perfect cast and caption of what life can be like.
Sustainable pick: H&M initiates World Recycle Week between 18th-24th of April. Any textiles in any condition from any brand will be accepted for drop-off for hopefully another ”reclaimed” collection. M.I.A is an ambassador for the project and the official video to highlight it will be released on April 11h.
Via Make It Last with thanks.
Music: The song ”Egoist” by Kent. Last tour and last album, end of an era. I know I will be there in December for sure. Unfortunately no video available yet, but their good bye message is a piece of art itself directed by my friend Adam Berg. You can see it here.
Very nice Easter caption by Danilla Witte with thanks
Even though I´m by my desk with tons of paper work in front of me I feel so very happy that Spring is finally here. The sun is shining, the birds are all ecstatic outside and within a a week some holiday time. Hope you all are having a great day xx

Back after 4 wonderful days in Paris, I just love that city so much. Beauty everywhere. And to my big content the surprise for my husband that our two best friends where joining us after two days went all according to plan – you should have seen his face when he opened the door. I will put together a list of the restaurants and places we went to if you are interested and meanwhile here are some snapshots. Have a great week everyone xx
1) One happy guy on our balcony in the afternoon sun 2) The Eiffel tower of course, framed by the blooming trees that where everywhere. 668 steps and some vertigo later 3) Boeuf Bourguignon for lunch on this cosy veranda 4) 1 out of 100 pics of all the blooming trees. This one from Montmartre 5) Fresh berries and fruit every morning. The best raspberries I´ve ever had 6) A flower market to die for 7) Lunch at Chez Julien, a little pricy but great food and location 8) Looking down from the 5th floor where we lived (we rented a flat through Airbnb). Beautiful details everywhere 9) Of course there was a mandatory stop at Merci where I bought some very pretty props to join me for work. What I loved the most in addition to beautiful things, the restaurant with view over this courtyard garden
