Summer in Chelsea… When the sun is out in London, it truly is a magnificent place to be! If you haven’t been to Chelsea yet, it is definitely worth a visit. This Saturday Clara, Frenchie and I were on a special mission… We were going to do a bit of shopping and then have dinner at Hans Bar & Grill – a wonderful all-day dining restaurant located in the very stylish and cosy Pavilion Road
I am really, really excited to share this blog post with you guys! First of all, because Frenchie and I had a truly unique dining experience at Searcys at The Gherkin. Second, because I have wanted to visit this stunning skyscraper since the day I moved to London 5 years ago!
Friday out with Clara and my mother! I can’t remember the last time, when the three of us went out together on a real “girls-day-out!” Obviously there had to be Afternoon Tea involved, as we are all big fans of this lovely British food tradition – and this time we were going to Knightsbridge for a cosy and wonderful afternoon at The Egerton House Hotel
Have you seen the Movie “Disney’s Cruella”? If not you should! It is absolutely fabulous – and so is the “Cruella” inspired Afternoon Tea, that is currently being served in Michelin-starred Celeste at The Lanesborough Hotel in London!
It has been a while, since my family and I were able to leave our home for a couple of days… And how we longed for it! Just getting away to a lovely place, where we could enjoy a bit of luxury and still feel relaxed…
I can not tell you, how happy I am to finally be able go out and discover more of my new home-country again! It feels like the last lockdown lasted forever, so when May 17th 2021 finally arrived, Frenchie and I decided, that we wanted to do something really special together!
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)
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...
