· A selection of my favorite summer sale finds ·
Just as we’re getting into the habit of really enjoying the warm summer evenings and have started looking forward to spending a long summer vacation in Denmark, running around in nothing else than relaxing summer dresses and soft sandals, the summer sale has begun. And since I still haven’t gotten around to updating my daughters summer wardrobe, I have been through some of my favorite children’s shops and found a little selection of great items, that can both be used now and in many seasons to come.
· About flower masks and some lovely cosy clothes ·
Last Sunday we planned a family excursion for the whole day. But then life happened and for different reasons I found myself with a head full of thoughts. I know better than trying to do too much with two kids and a half-distracted mother, so a quick change of plans was necessary.
We decided to put some of the flowers we had bought on sale the day before to good use, and make flower masks.
· A short text about why skipping school can sometimes be okay ·
Today I let my 1st grader skip school. Not that she was feeling sick, had thrown up at night or had bumped her head. She just didn’t feel like going, which is really rare for her because she loves school.
I guess it was just one of those mornings.
• A roundup of 10 children’s trends I believe in now (and in years to come) •
A few weeks back I posted a small list of some current trends in children’s fashion that I personally believe in, on Enfants Terribles Mag’s blog. Having the title as their Trend Editor, a bi-annual trend report seemed to make sense. But the truth is, that I much prefer to talk about further-reaching trends and ways we can make the children’s consumer market into a more thoughtful, longer living and more sustainable one. And still be able to buy new things and have kids who look adorable of course.
• A little list of how becoming a mother has changed me •
A lot of noteworthy days have passed by while I’ve been absent here on the blog. My eldest turned seven, my youngest got accepted to pre-school and motherhood was celebrated on Mother’s Day.
It seems as if motherhood has the ability to constantly turn my life upside down. Just as I feel like something is working, routines are found and our everyday life is on a roll, a new thing, a change in personality, a wobbly tooth or a sick child can make it all change once again. A year ago, when I just started doing this blog, I wrote a list on how becoming a mother has changed me (you can read it right here
), and during the last few months, I have been collecting a few more things that I wanted to add to the list. So here you go, a second part to my list on how becoming a mother has changed me.
• About Fashion Revolution day and my my favorite selection of ethically produced children’s clothes •
Because people shouldn’t suffer, live in poverty or even die producing cheap clothes for us or our children, Fashion Revolution was started to raise awareness of the true cost of a cheap fashion production.
• A bit about the wanderlust I feel every spring and a picture from our earth day flower journal •
Every year when we reach spring and especially around earth day, I’m hit by a severe case of wanderlust.
• A small text about how a park and some spring weather helps me find the ease of motherhood •
Once again I have discovered something that I seem to realize every year when spring arrives and forget again when autumn kicks in. As the weather gets better and allows you to spend more hours outside, being a parent gets so much easier.
• Something about motherhood, me-time and spending time apart •
Last Sunday my husband took our children out for lunch. I had decided to stay behind and do a bit of writing, take a walk and enjoy my own company. My husband will be gone for the next few weekends, and I figured that now was the time to stock up on some me-time.
But a few minutes after they had left, my maternal instinct kicked in, and I started missing both my girls intensely.
• A bit about why it has been quiet and a month seen in pictures •
Lately I have felt lost for words. Not so much when it comes to chatting with friends over a cup of coffee or talking with my children about how their day has been. But when it comes to putting words down on a piece of paper (or into a document on my computer) I have been feeling like I had nothing more to say. For weeks it felt like I would never get back into it.
