Longing for…


I know, it´s really too soon to already be longing for Christmas but this is as excited as I have been about it in a really long time. We have spent the past years celebrating Xmas with friends in LA and as lovely and special that has been it´s of course very different from being back home with snow, the big family and all traditions. When we realized our youngest doesn’t even remember what it´s like to celebrate Christmas back home we decided to leave after Christmas this year instead. I´m so happy about that and super excited to get all the decorations up, plan and cook food for days, getting the Christmas tree, making the Gingerbread house and making decorations with the kids. I really do hope we get some proper snow so that it will be a white and crispy one. Can´t wait to go all in!

Time for nomination

Skärmavbild 2017-10-11 kl. 09.23.41I was so happy and overwhelmed last year to be part of the top 10 Interior Bloggers in Sweden in the Elle Decoration Swedish Design Awards. Now it´s time to nominate again and I would be lying if I said I wouldn’t´ be extremely happy if you took the time to vote again. For me or for another favorite, or both. Only a few days left, last day to vote is October 15th. Since I don´t look at statistics that much from being a non-commercial blog I really did appreciate it so much more getting your feedback last year by being nominated so I want to say a big thanks for that! It means a lot since I really put a lot of time and effort in the blog and sharing it with you makes it worth everything.

As I know I have a lot of international readers, a quick translation of the voting page that you can find here . Scroll down the page and then field 1: Name of you favorite blogger, 2: Why do you think this blog should win? What do you like about it?, 3: You first name, 4: Your surname. (Leave boxes without a star), 8: Your emailadress & finally just click approval in the last box with a star attached to it. Then just press send through the big black button and you vote is in. 

Thank you! ❤️

May: On my mind

Oh how I love the month of May! Here we go with some goodies on my mind before heading off to June:

glampingTravel: I have to be honest, camping is not really my thing. I´m one of those silly persons who think a bear will eat you up as soon as your eyes are closed but now I´ve found something to look into! Terra Glamping, that would be something! In decorated tents with an incredible view of the ocean just along Highway 1 in California. Yep, goes right on the to do list.

valerieShoes: Really like these suede flats by Valerie & Heelow. Perfect with jeans and a basic top. By a quick look I could´t find them in my size though, hopefully they will restock soon.

peonies new
Flower:
Without doubt – and this will always be my flower choice for as long as the season is right – peonies. Along with lilacs of course but peonies are for the win as they last longer.

outfit mayOutfit: All I want, blue jeans and a striped shirt. Simple as that.

office mayOffice: I don´t remember if it was here on the blog or on Instagram I posted this image the first time but I know I reacted to how many people then was equally taken by it as me. This space…yes. Many great things would come from there, I´m sure of it.

I know my destination and with a little luck and a lot of continuous hard work I´ll hopefully be on my way.
