Cannot wait for the green colors to take over… here’s a quick way to add crisp spring feel’n’tones on grey days – inside ♥
↑ Fermliving plant box + pots are amazing for pre spring inside ; ) visit Fermliving.
Love Hyricinths – these are in Belly Pots by Poast – shop them on Etsy.
Not a plant person? Just make some splases of spring inside with some fresh fruits in a caracteristic coffee table bowl – citrus are in season now – mix the orange and yellow colors with deep blue eggplants or dark red apples or some sticks with brussel sprouts (tiny note: kale is not yummi for days in living room tempatures ; ). This bowl is from Menu – shop it here.
Dusty pink above ↑↑ also from Fermliving plus the hanging pots – find them all here.

Just ten years ago cow milk was “just milk” and still as normal as butter or eggs in every fridge. Today Google friendly health wisdom makes it a jungle to figure out: WHAT it is good / bad to you and your family.
I miss the GOT MILK campaigns – just enjoy, don’t care, relax, drink milk because (…or if) you love it.
Back in the days I was called “milky girl” by my mom as in: I loooooved milk. Today a few, or some summers later, milk – as in cow milk – has become the devil in the fridge or in the tummies.
↑ I’m not totally happy about the “diet GOT MILK” posters ↑ – the 90’ties “perform to your max – do your best – loose weight” strategies… focus today will probably be a bit more mind based ; ) Last year to many kids at the age of ONLY ten had stress symptoms, early stages of depressions, anxiety attacks and eating disorders. Due to living after the most simple rules: 1000% perfect without any mistakes. That’s scary.
My kids don’t have a clue of who the stars are on these posters : ) as in: no “YouTube-celebs” = it’s a BYT before Youtube campaign!+ before smartphones and SoMe. And it is also before vegan-veggie-flexi-pesci-eat-organic-clean became the new black.
But is it bad / good / perfect? To me, to you, us? Who knows? And. What is next?
I don’t drink gallons of milk everyday. A bit of good taste and nice organic quality everyday = basics of my healthy lifestyle. I enjoy full fat cow milk in my coffee. I have tried all kinds of plant alternatives, and the result = no happy coffee breaks to me but a lack-of-taste – I was missing the full fat flavour (please notice: I have all the respect in the world for you who love plant milk ; ). Delicious coffee = a happy mind = VERY important ; )
I would love a fair fun fact MILK campaign (bold with clear basic evidens please) – with a no BS focus on the animal vs veggie-plant debates – for kids to understand and remember that a strong healthy growing body, teeth and happy mind is alpha omega.

Love yellow details in my home. Makes me smile. It’s a bold choice. Sometimes a bit too shiny.
I like one or two items in a white room. Or with darker tones: a perfect match to dark ash grey. An old door or closet in a bright yellow – or just one single lampshade – lovely!
↑ Love the bold mix of materials: new + old + smooth + rough + stone + glass + natural + neon + classic + a splash of yellow = perfect!

In Copenhagen the spring is finally starting. The cherry blossoms will be all over Bispebjergkirkegård (north-west Copenhagen area) in a few hours/days (follow this # on Instagram and you will see #bispebjergkirkegård).

“When in Rome…” make a party. Festive candles … my Emma turns 11 years in May – and the party will be full of colors & glam – sunny, outside I hope ; )
No party without bubbles ; ) pink to-go – I like ♥
… cannot get enough of … trays … DON’T KNOW WHY?
I have 20 or more … all full of patterns and colors – always makes me happy to serve tea & cake (or wine, cheese and olives – you decide!)
on a colorful tray … and it is a perfect “table” in the grass or on the beach.
↑ Don’t forget to dress up the good stuff. Beauty for the butter. Home baked bread with butter. Not even Nutella can beat that taste I think.
↓ Let’s face it: macarons are just small crunchy bites of Heaven. I cannot wait to order a to-go-box like this at Bottega Louie – must eat place in LA.
Picnic-spring-party for my ears ; )))
↑ All packed nicely in this – oh yes please.
Calm bath after a long sunny day outside. My Number One mom-treat is actually not chocolate, not hand bags, or glam-bam-accessories… but: delicious and luxurious bath-body-shampoos – cannot get enough ; )
All picnic items, earrings + milk bath etc.: from my favorite webshop www.leif.com
Go visit amazing Louie in LA here.
Champagne to-go Harvey Nichols
January always make me want to start over… clean up, make or dress up our apartment with new interiors, mix bold colours or make a classic twist with dark grey shades. All links below.
Bohemian mix –
… or London classic shaker style.
Exclusive in steel, marble and dark colours.
Or mix of all kinds of colours, styles + materials. And a palm tree in the corner? Why not ; ))
Show it all in natural shades and textures –
… or go simple with clean graphic shapes in light Nordic tones with a few colour splashes.
Confused… I like it all!

Winter in Copenhagen is more grey and rain than high blue sky and bright snow. Makes us go inside and make… make all kinds of creative stuff or just bake, or create delicious slow cooked meals – or “just” a iced coffee with homemade vanilla syrup on the side – This One is by my favorite foodie + photographer Eva aka Adventures in Cooking.
I always enjoy my morning coffee. Gooood coffee. Organic and fresh roasted by Simon – our local barista. I drink 1-2 cups a day, that’s it. A bitter morning pause with the newspaper – makes me wake up and smile ; )
TIP! A homemade vanilla syrup = a perfect host/hostess gift! LINK for recipe below ; ) ↓
Would I love to have that kitchen???! OH YES!
I’m more into a bitter-sweet cup of Joe and salty crisp starters, than sweets and desserts. Makes this iced mocca recipe perfect for me. The homemade syrup does a good job for a hot cup as well ; )
Iced Latte recipe – find it here.
