Working Weekend

Saturday, July 30, 2016




The pros and the cons of being self employed : more often than not the weekends end up being working days. August and September are going to be very busy months, there are so many fairs and press events to attend to, my calendar is almost full. However it is going to be so much fun at the same time, I can hardly contain my excitement. This weekend is dedicated in planning ahead, I do not want to miss any of the events in my planner so I am in the process of creating lists all the brands I want to visit, which halls they are located, noting down flying dates, hotels, routes,renting cars etc. And since I will be in Paris, I have to visit some of the places in the Cereal city guide. This weekend is shaping up to be more fun than work, I like it!

Avocado Tree Growth Rate

Tuesday, July 26, 2016

Last week I have been on vacation, though spend most my time at the summer house. Coming back home I was stunned at how much my avodaco trees have grown, and in comparison to a photo from about two weeks ago(as seen below) the growth is even more impressive! I cannot wait to see how much more they are going to grow, this is the first time I have done this so I am in constant unknown territory. I have re potted them quite a few times, as I started them in quite small pots to begin with. You see I did not anticipate how fast they would grow and that consequently they would need more space for their roots to spread. Their new medium to large sized pots will hopefully be big enough for the growing trees for the next few months. Either way, I have some pots in my wishlist I wanted to buy, change some of my old plants,if the avocados need another re potting I will be more than happy to oblige.
You can see all the posts concerning the avocado tree on my DIY section, including a full tutorial on how to grow one of your own from an avocado stone right in your home!

Hopefully they will be presenting in one of the upcoming fairs that I am attending August and September.

In Vacation Mood

Monday, July 18, 2016

We came to the cabin for a few days to kick back and relax, maybe if the weather cooperates sunbathe or even swim or kayak. While out shopping locally I found this amazing little blanket that is also thin enough to be used as a towel. Perfect. Now all we need is the sun to shine for a few hours and we are set to go. Either way, I can still wrap it around myself when it gets chilly, flexible design, what else can a girl ask for?

Bathroom Essentials

Sunday, July 17, 2016

Lately I have had a little bit of a trouble finding time to do everything I want. Blame it to my newly found running routine that is making it hard for me to concentrate on normal tasks. It is funny how adding something so small in my life as an hour of running, can take up so much of my time. Trying to get back into schedule I decided to organize the bathroom and gather all my morning and night routine essentials in one place, and then move to more rooms in the house.So far it has worked, and having my essentials in one place it really encourages me to actually use them daily as intended. I am so bad at keeping up with a schedule, it is no wonder even adding a new routine to it threw me off course for a few days. For my essentials you will find a combination of Aesop products and Meraki.When it comes to perfume the Santal 33 is my absolute must wear as of late and I have to say, I can't wait to visit Paris on September so I can try more of LeLabo fragrances.

Copenhagen : Hotel SP34

Tuesday, July 12, 2016






To honor the launch of the Cereal Copenhagen Guide I decided to share my favorite hotel in Copenhagen, the Hotel SP34 by Brøchner Hotels. Elegant in its design , the boutique hotel 4 star hotel is situated at the Latin Quarter of Copenhagen, just 100 meters from the City Hall Square and the pedestrian street Strøget. With a courtyard and its rooftop terraces overlooking the surrounding neighborhood, the 3 town houses that comprise SP34 are furnished with elements that hold true to its original architecture while key components of contemporary design help create a unique feeling of luxury in the form of penthouse suites with skylight bathrooms and balconies with a panorama of the Danish capital. 
I cannot wait next time I am in town to spend my nights there, and hopefully my schedule will be less than hectic so I can enjoy breakfast and coffee while I work at its cafe area.
Check Brøchner Hotels Instagram for updates, promotion codes and giveaways.

Best of Hand Creams in Tube : Interior Rendition

Sunday, July 10, 2016


When it comes to hand creams, there are few that deliver not only in quality, but also in style. It is no wonder that while in the past, hand creams were a staple in our bags, now they are also a favorite display in photos. What is even more fascinating is that they have also managed to tickle into interior lifestyle as well. From casually being displayed in the bathroom, to more often than not seen beside a MacBook and a coffee cup, laying inconspicuously on the latest Kinfolk magazine on a marble coffee table, or strategically placed in a top down mood board featuring all sort of must have props for the interior conscious. It is no mystery how these products ended up being featured so often in photos, they are very photogenic, while they look great in compositions as much as in the bathroom as outside of it.More importantly they give a much wanted glimpse in our real lives all the while being relatable and easy to shop for. Personally I like changing every few months to a different brand, and I always prefer having a full set of soap and hand cream for the bathroom but also a smaller sized tube for my bag or the coffee table. As ironic as it sounds, I do use hand creams a lot so it is no wonder they are so often featured in my own photos, I really do move them around wherever I go. Above you can find 4 of my favorites, I recommend any of them wholeheartedly.

Balcony Sneak Peek

Friday, July 8, 2016





A couple of weeks ago I painted our petites balcony floor white from red. Also I threw away any old furniture so I could start styling it anew. I am almost done (if only it will stop raining enough to paint the pallets that will go under the pillows), but there is a small factor I didn't quite consider while thinking about this. Although the balcony is easy enough to style, petite and all aside, it is incredibly hard to find a good angle to show off its best features. I have created two nooks one as seen above and one on the other side with a small table and chairs, while also there are plants spread around, lights and a rug to tie everything together. Once I am finished I will share the final result, it is coming along exactly as I had imagined, even though it might be hard to capture. I will certainly try!

Pinterest Love

Thursday, July 7, 2016

One of my favorite things on the afternoon if I am home is to browse on my Pinterest with a drink on the side. Depending on how warm the weather is I might opt for a cold brewed coffee or an iced coffee (next time I am outside on the balcony I will  snap some shots for you). A tip if you are drinking iced coffee, try freezing some in your freezer,this way instead of ice cubes you will use coffee cubes. In fact I love just filling a glass of milk and dropping in coffee in ice cubes instead of making it the traditional way, it is perfect for a summer morning. It is funny because all these ideas I initially discovered on Pinterest, along with so much more inspiration of just about everything. You can see why I dedicate a few minutes every afternoon to it. As for my snack in case you are wondering, it is just cottage cheese on knäckebröd with some lightly caramelized seasonal forest fruits. Do try it!
