Online invitations made easy & beautiful

[Sponsored post] I was given the opportunity to try out Paperless Post. For those of you not familiar with it, it’s a company providing beautiful online invitations for everything from birthdays, weddings, parties and more. They’ve teamed up with some pretty amazing designers like kate spade new york, Oscar de la Renta, Liberty Fabrics, Marimekko, The New Yorker, Vera Wang, Meri Meri, Jonathan Adler and Rifle Paper Co.

I first noticed the company at the beginning of 2017, when I received an invitation from a Danish design company. To me, it was the wow-factor that made me look into Paperless Post back then. I was excited to be given the opportunity to try it out for myself.

I’ve used the invitations on a smaller scale to make invitations for this year’s Easter brunch. Since we’re not about to celebrate any bigger events this year, I won’t have the chance to try it out on a larger scale just yet. However, I plan to use it for Save the Date cards for my daughter’s confirmation. I know she’ll love designing and personalizing her invitation. I love the fact that people can check out the guest list and keep track of who’s attending and who’s not.

To give you an idea of just how many different designs you can pick from, I’ve collected some of my favorite ones. And remember, you can also personalize the invitations and add your own pictures. You can change just about everything from the text colors, the patterns inside the envelopes (the envelope opening is, by the way, a cool feature in itself).

Check out Paperless Post and create your very own cool invitations. I’m sure you’ll find an invitation that’ll suit your taste and your event. At the moment I plan to use the invitations for my son’s birthday, for the occasional brunch or G&T evenings and who knows – maybe there’ll be a summer party or two on the list as well.

Townhouse inspiration & wishing you a Happy Friday

Wow, I’ve been looking forward to this Friday for a while now. Not that the last couple of weeks haven’t been interesting – in fact, they’ve been some of the best weeks in a long time. But today it’s vacation time!

It’s time for our Easter break. We’re not going anywhere – we decided to cancel Hamburg this year – in favor of going all in on our trip to London later on. So we’ve got a week ahead of us, filled with family time, visiting friends and family and just relaxing and enjoying some time off. It’s actually kind of perfect.

The home tour I’ll leave you with today, well it’s been open in my browser for quite some time, and every time I click on it, I fall in love with this townhouse all over again. I hope you’ll feel inspired too. Have a lovely weekend <3

Meet SPÄNST – a collaboration between IKEA & CHRIS STAMP

Meet SPÄNST by Chris Stamp and IKEA. Now this is a collaboration I’m looking forward to. It’s minimalistic, cool and very street. For SPÄNST IKEA has teamed up with U.S. fashion designer Chris Stamp. I hadn’t heard about Stamp before, but I’ve been reading up on the guy. In an interview with IKEA Today he said:

Fashion and furniture are different animals but the creative process is similar. You have to burn to be good. You have to be inspired and be able to inspire people around you. The tricky part, whether you’re designing a hoodie or a shoe rack, is to get the details right. The details tell people what your brand is all about and make your product exciting and sought after.

I love this way of thinking. I love it when I discover that little extra attention to details. That’s when I know that the person behind has actually given it some thought.

As always, I’ve collected some of the things on my wishlist – and I cannot wait to hit the nearest IKEA store in the beginning of May and check it all out in real life. Hopefully, I’ll find bring a few of the items with me home. I’ve got my eyes set on the indoor basketball net, it would be so very cool in my boy’s room along with the fluorescent lamps. I think I’ll bring home the throw pillows for our sofa. We’re always in need of at least one more in order for it to be real cozy. The good news is that most of the items fit my criteria of always being “movable” – I mean that in terms of the possibility that the object can be used in every room in our home.  Check out the entire collection here – the text is in Danish, but you can still check out the items.

Cool Spring Boy – what to wear?

I’m so ready for my cool spring boy to get out there again. We’ve been out of the game for a couple of days due to the famous flu – it’s been especially hard on our little guy. It’s tough when he’s lying in bed, not eating and with glazy fever eyes.

At times like this, that’s when I long for spring the most. No more winter flu but days and nights filled with expectations and wishes of a warm summer.

I’ve been looking for items to add to his wardrobe. Just a little bit. I actually find it pretty hard this season. I really hope, I’m just too early, otherwise, it’s gonna be a tough season to get through. I know it’s always harder finding cool clothes for boys, but it’s never been this hard.

So what have I been up to lately…

say yes pink

Not blogging that’s for sure. But I’ve missed it so much, and it’s the same every time I take a break (voluntarily or not) I end up missing this place a lot.

For the past 3 months, I’ve been studying to get a diploma in Digital marketing and getting numerous Google certifications. It’s been hard work, and last week I aced the exam. Hopefully, I’ll be able to find a job within this field of work. I’m willing to work freelance, part time and full time, I just really want to contribute to something meaningful. So if you know anyone, got a small business yourself or you’re looking to hire someone like me – check out my profile on LinkedIn. And let’s have a talk.

Making room for storage in our daughter’s room
Apart from studying, I’m also planning a bit of a project at home. In the next couple of weeks, we’ll be redecorating our daughter’s room (again). Due to some minor problems, we need to remove her closet and give that corner some air. Therefore, we decided to go with the solution we picked for our boy’s room. It’s simple, looks amazing, and perfect for storage. We’ve bought the cabinets from Ikea, and our hallway is now filled with boxes, waiting to be assembled. Great when we’ve got a few birthday parties coming up.

I still remember seeing this blog post many years ago and loving every detail of it the cabinets. It took me some time, but I finally convinced my husband that it would be perfect for our boy’s room. Since we’re doing something similar in our girl’s room, well we haven’t regretted it once. Now there’s just the hard work ahead of us – but I cannot wait to decorate and add some finishing touches in there. I hope it’ll last a bit longer this time around.
