While my mind was occupied by reminiscing the past year and mentally preparing for a life post-maternity leave, holiday season sneaked up on me and I didn’t realize it until Wham’s ‘Last Christmas’ was suddenly on the radio. Luckily, I come prepared; A while ago I decided to create a holiday cocktail for family and friends who are visiting during the holidays; something festive and effortless to mix from staples in my cupboard. The result was this Ginger Kombucha &…

We went road-tripping in California, hiked in the Faroe Islands, swam in Barcelona, and feasted in Paris. August kept us awake at night, got his first teeth, and took his first steps. I overcame my fear of nursing in public, my body healed, and I’m back into my favourite jeans. A year has passed since we got to hold our little monkey for the first time; we travelled, overcame our fears, returned home, and landed on our feet. In the…

Here are a few of my quotidian essentials. Something I would like to talk more about on the blog; the  beauty in the every day, the mundane.

These are some of my favourite products, products of beauty and every day use. When it…

As much as I appreciate exploring new places, I simply love to nest and wander familiar streets, too. To me Paris is the perfect place for that. The past Weekend we stayed in the Marais, the ideel neighbourhood for us. It hosts everything we seek in…

Currently what inspires me is seasonal vegetables cooked to their maximum potential, served on ceramics shaped by the hands of local artist, Magdalena Kaluzna. The art of cooking a simple seasonal meal from super accessible veggies jazzed up with spices from our pantry is an art I want to exercise more in our quotidian routines. As our everyday storm is getting closer, the waves get so high I want to make room for what really matters to us; to cook…

Dear Grandma, I got blueberries at the market yesterday. I carried them home carefully not to squeeze them under the head of cabbage I bought, too. I think they’ll be the last blueberries I carry home this season. Autumn is sneaking in, mostly unnoticed under the persisting Copenhagen heat, but it can’t hide its flaming leaves that dances to the rhythms of the wind on the pavement. To mark the end of Summer I made us a big batch of…
