My Christmas wishlist

It’s time for my Christmas wishlist – partly because people keep asking me for a wishlist, and partly because I wanted to show you some of the things on my list this year. My wishlist is centered around making life a little bit more comfortable. Therefore, I’ve added comfortable and warm cashmere clothes, organic beauty products, organic food (a subscription), a new iPhone and .a few more things. I’m trying to make a few changes in my life, and live even more by the less is more concept. For example, I would rather drink one amazing cup of coffee a week, than drink 8 cups of bad coffee a day. It goes for everything in my life, from the clothes I buy/wear to the food I eat.

Christmas Wishlist – Teen Girl

This is the first post – Christmas Wishlist – Teen Girl –  in a series of posts about Christmas presents. Over the coming weeks I’ll show you different ideas of what to put under the Christmas tree. I plan to give you ideas of what to buy for the whole family.

I’ll kick this one off by giving you some ideas of what to buy for your teen girl. My soon to be 12 year-old girl has a long wishlist this year. It’s a good mix of clothes, music players, gadgets, books and beauty products. Just right for a girl her age. It’s fun to watch her transformation. I’ll try and collect some of her wishes here.

Advent – Still not ready – Get inspired here

Are you ready for advent? In one week we’ll light the first candle and celebrate the first advent. I haven’t created this year’s advent wreath, but hopefully, I’ll get it done this weekend. I’ve been using one of my Kubus candleholder for the past couple of years, but I’m actually considering going more ‘natural’ this year. I’m very inspired by some of the pictures below. However, I also love using my son’s Schleich animals, to make it more playful.

Black Friday – Check out what’s on my shopping list

Black Friday is coming up soon, and it’s time to do a bit of shopping. What’s on your shopping list? Is it long? Or do you simply hate everything about Black Friday?

12 Christmas Calendars to pick from

One of the things I love about Christmas is picking out a Christmas Calendar for each of my kids. If I’m lucky, I’ll get one myself. I’ve picked out 12 different calendars this year – I wouldn’t mind getting one of them.

I’m the kind of person who would rather have a tiny piece of good chocolate than a bag of candy. The same goes for coffee – I don’t drink coffee every day at all, but when I do drink it (mostly on the weekends, I want something special. I try to teach my kids this as well. Therefore, my daughter picked a liquorice calendar two years in a row a few years back. With the little guy, it’s a bit more tricky. But like my daughter, I’m sure he’ll come around eventually. Though, she’s always been curious about different food.

This year, I’ve picked out a little bit of everything for inspiration. Underneath you’ll find dark chocolate, cosmetics, caramels, wine gums, coffee and more. I hope you find one to make those December days just a bit more cozy.

Daily countdown in December

The past 3 years we’ve had a candle from Normann Copenhagen to help us count down the days till Christmas. However, I’ve bought another candle holder for our candle this year.

First of all, I wanted a thinner candle. It was hard for us to burn the bigger candle down each day, so a thinner version is on trial this year. In mid October a candle holder from finnsdottir arrived at my door. I’d been trying to decide which one to pick for a few weeks, and I finally decided on the one with the tiny Bambi.

I’ve added a few new trees from Søstrene Grene to the decoration and I’m quite happy with the result. I’ll add a picture on Instagram, when reach the end of November. But until then, you can check out the Christmas campaign from Søstrene Grene – I bought the green and white trees. If you want even more Christmas inspiration, you should check out my board on Pinterest. But I’ll make sure to collect some of my favourite Christmas ideas in another post when we hit the end of November.
