Welcome 2017

kindness

Somehow December came and went. I ended 2016 with a nasty cold, and 2017 began with a few days in bed. But now I’m up and ready for 2017 and the changes this new year will bring.

I’ve got high hopes for this year. Like the rest of the world, I’m also waiting to see what’ll happen, but on a personal note, I’m more than ready for 2017.

This week and the rest of the month actually is all about my daughter turning 11 years old. I’ll write a post about what to buy for a girl like her soon. Hopefully, I’ll have some time this weekend.

I just wanted to stop by and say hello. I’ve got a night with a good book planned.

Take care xx

So how about those presents….

After spending a wonderful long weekend in Hamburg last weekend, I’ve been really busy at work. Things are changing and my head has been elsewhere.

I want to give you a few tips about where to eat in Hamburg – but I’ll have to leave it for another post. I’m in love with the city, and my husband did some amazing research and found quite a few spots worth writing about.

It’s already the second Sunday in December, and I’m still trying to figure out what to buy for my family. Right now I should be shopping online for some of the presents, but I just don’t know what to buy for all of them.

We’ve been baking and making chocolate treats for Christmas today, and the rest of my family is relaxing right now. I think I’ll join the kids for a Christmas movie now, and do the shopping some other time. Have a lovely Sunday <3

Gifts for kids – Etsy edition

Today it’s time for the gifts for kids edition. I’ve already covered gifts for him and her – and now it’s time for the kids. Etsy is full of super cute toys and stuff for the kids. I always love buying something special for the kids – something you cannot buy in the store around the corner. That is one of the main reasons why I love finding stuff on Etsy. I’ve picked out things for the kids, some for the tiny ones and some for the older ones. For more inspiration go to Etsy Editor’s Pick Page, where you’ll find more interesting gift ideas.

Gifts for her – Etsy edition

A few days ago I kicked off a Christmas gift special full of different gift ideas from Etsy. Today, I want to share a few things which I found for the women in your family. Here you’ll find gifts for your mother, sister, daughter or maybe your best friend. Some of the things, I think I’ll have to get for my daughter. My mother is another story. She’s very picky, and I need to find a special gift for her. For more inspiration go to Etsy Editor’s Pick Page, where you’ll find more interesting gift ideas. What are you going to get for the women in your family this year?

Ikea hack – love at first sight

On Monday, I fell in love big time. I was scrolling along Facebook, when a beautiful bookcase from Stylizimoblog appeared on my phone. I had to know more about this Ikea hack. I found more pictures of this grey bookcase, and my crush became even bigger.

The bookcase is made out of two of the biggest VALJE shelf units. Add to that a beautiful grey color. I’m crazy about this light grey color. No wonder Nina was inspired, when she saw a similar bookcase on Anna Kubel’s blog. I think I might have to convince my husband that this is the best idea I’ve had in a while. I showed him the bookcase on Monday (I couldn’t help myself), and his first reaction was… do you need yet another bookcase. Yup, and I’ll find a way 😉

Advent – 10 ways to do it

Advent is just around the corner. Are you ready? If now, I’ve got some last minute ideas for you. Some of them might need a bit of shopping before you can create them at home, but you’ve still got a few days left.

I ended up using my Kubus candle holder from ByLassen again this year. I like in nice and simple – also when it comes to Christmas decorations. I’m a bit of a weird Christmas freak, when it comes to decorations. Truth be told, I’m more of a winter decorations kind of gal. I’ll add snowflakes, trees, snow, glitter, silver, some black, some lights and some toy animals and cars – and then I’m ready for December
