Clara has always been very fond of music. I sang to her, when I was still pregnant – and played classical music, so she could “listen”, while growing beautiful and strong in my womb. It has actually been proven that, in the third trimester, an unborn baby can recognise her mother’s voice, her native language and even begin to remember word patterns and rhymes!
“Oh wow – are you going to Adam Handling Chelsea? I am so jealous!” The lady at the reception at Maggie and Rose Nursery looked at me with big eyes, when I came in with my little Clara all dressed up and ready to go. “Yes, I am! Do you know it? It is my first time visiting!.” She knew it, as she used to work in the Knightsbridge area, and it was clear, that I was in for a treat!
Staycation… such a popular choice these days! And now I know why!
To be honest, I have never experienced a staycation before. Why stay at a hotel, when your home is 20 mins drive away? I will tell you why! It is an amazing opportunity to get away from it all without the travel-hassle! You basically take time off from work and daily chores and instead spending quality time with your family (in very luxurious surroundings!) Yay!
Christmas isn’t Christmas for me without a lot of delicious things to eat and drink… Being Danish, I was brought up in a home with many lovely Christmas traditions! One of them was enjoying a lot of homemade Mulled wine (or Danish Glögg, as we call it) during the festive season
Christmas is almost here – and with everything, that is going on in our world right now, we spend A LOT of time in our home. Two adults, one toddler and a Norwegian forrest cat named Dolly Parton… That’s us! My husband is French, and he loves to cook with our daughter, Clara. When they spend time in the kitchen, things can become a bit messy! Luckily I have found a solution, if something goes wrong!
The Kensington Hotel… One of the first hotels, I noticed, when I moved from Copenhagen to London 5 years ago. This beautiful and luxurious hotel is perfectly situated in South Kensington, It is close to popular must-visit places like Harrods, Harvey Nichols and The Royal Albert Hall. (The Natural History Museum and The V&A are just 5 minutes on foot)
On a cold and windy autumn day in London, something very special happened. My family and I were invited to stay at Marriott Park Lane London for two nights – and Clara was the star of the show (as always!)
And so we meet again! I love dining at new places, but I think I love going back to place, where I know, that the food is spectacular is even better! Galvin at Windows is exactly that… a place, that I can’t wait to visit over and over again
If you know me well, you will also know, that there is a place in London, that is very special to me. I always bring my guests visiting from abroad here and for a good reason! The place is called Fortnum & Mason and it is absolutely impossible for me to pass by this stunning and luxurious department store without entering…
Autumn has officially arrived in London… Being Danish I am a big fan of “hygge”… I love everything cosy, comfortable and romantic! Having enjoyed a lot of “cosy and comfortable” lately, Frenchie and I decided it was time to do a bit of “romantic”. Luckily I knew the perfect place. We called our babysitter – and off we went into the city…
How to transform a classic green/blue wooden playhouse into a nordic-styled fairytale playhouse? I might as well admit, that I am NOT a DIY person, but I love making Clara happy – and this project was the perfect surprise for my little girl
Last weekend was very special! It was the first time, that Frenchie and I went on a long weekend without Clara for more than a year. We really needed to spend some quality time together after many months of lockdown and moving to a new place. My mother came over from Denmark (she is the best babysitter in the world), and off we went to a place, that I have been wanted to visit for as long as I can remember… Verbier!
How time flies, when you have a little one… Forgive me for having been a bit absent lately, but Clara is taking a lot of my time - and I have also been quite busy judging at The UK Blog Awards 2019. It is not easy finding a winner and a highly commended out of 400...
I think most of you know, that I love my mother very, very much! I don't think, I have met a person with a more beautiful soul ever! When my mother comes to visit from Denmark, we always make sure to have fun and lovely things planned in advance. Sometimes we go to...
I can still remember the first time I had hot pot! I was in Tokyo on a business trip, and I had never heard about this dish before! In Japan hot pot is called Shabu-Shabu - and just like in China and Thailand it is a beautiful, tasty broth containing a variety of East...
