Christmas Soon

In about 10 days from today, the Christmas Day is coming. And I am so excited. This is my favourite holiday. The perfect time when I can decorate our home with as much glitter and flamboyance as I want, the time I buy presents for family, friends and loved ones and wrap them in pretty […]

Time for Comfort

Autumn. It’s getting chilly outside. Cold crisp wind starts to blow and the beautiful colours of falling leaves rustling on the ground. But when it’s too cold, I love to spend time indoors, sitting on the sofa, wrapped with a nice fluffy blanket, holding a cup of warm beverage on one hand and something very […]

The French Do It Better

What is it with the French? I have been thinking and reading a little bit about the french way of living. And it seems like any place on the internet (and a few books I have) is saying the same thing about the french.They somehow do things better. Their lifestyle, fashion sense, the way they […]

French Rose Meringues

I have been looking very much forward to spring ever since the month of April came. I was already posting spring-y things on my Instagram and very excited about it. But then as this week started, we woke up on a snowy Monday morning. And Tuesday. It only lasted for 2 days though. And then the […]

The “New” Grand Café, Grand Hotel Oslo

For not so long ago, the Grand Café, Grand Hotel Oslo opened again after a year of renovation. It was sad when they decided to close last year, after 140 years of service. A lot of people were disappointed. Including me and the Mister. Because it is one of our favourite cafés in Oslo. This was […]

Le Chocolat Chaud

I remember when we were in Paris a few years back. We went to Angelina. A century old (110 years to be exact) tea salon and pâtisserie that serves the best chocolat chaud (hot chocolate). It is so thick that you can make your teaspoon stand on its own when dipped in the cup of that […]

Chocolate is the best medicine

Been quite a while since I posted something here. I haven’t had the time and energy to write a blog post because of things that happened lately. There we so many things that I could’ve written and shared. But now I’m back. Let me tell you a story. I have been “sick” the past weeks. […]
