Springtime (almost)

Trying on sunny yellow Zara spring coat

Gianvito Rossi pumps at net-a-porter
Spring is in the air. Despite the cold winds, close to zero temperatures, it feels like spring already. In search of that illusive sunshine, we are craving all colours bright and happy, like this sunny yellow Zara number, which also comes in baby-blue, or a tangerine wool coat, or this lovely fuchsia jacket. Also on our wish list for spring: these dreamy J.Crew pink aviators and Gianvito Rossi leopard-print pumps. Now, hoping the sun is finally out next week! Have a good one

Wes Anderson's latest, The Grand Budapest Hotel, is beautiful, mesmerising, funny, over the top, with a brilliant cast. Such a delightful surprise: haven't read any reviews and had absolutely no expectations. Have you watched it yet? Have a fun weekend !

Happy Baking

Did it ever happen to you that once you got into the baking mode, you just couldn't stop yourself? Something similar happened to us yesterday, when we were preparing for Mom's birthday: started with traditional Danish birthday layer cake (lagkage), ended up with too much filling and frosting and decided to make a mini-layer cake, this time with blueberries and raspberries, and finally came across this incredibly simple and insanely delicious recipe for the Blueberry Lemon Cheesecake Bars (thank you Sally's Baking Addiction!) - and couldn't stop until whipped a batch of this, new favourite, dessert. Now, we just wish we had a larger fridge… Have a great weekend !

If you have not, don't even check the trailer, just book your tickets at the nearest cinema, grab your perfect companions - preferably your kids or your goddaughter if you are lucky to have her visiting, and enjoy 100 minutes of joy, laughter and admiration for the creators of this smart, funny and thought-provoking animated film. 'Everything is awesome'. :)

Best Beauty Find

Great news: the cult French pharmacy staple, Embryolisse Lait-Creme Concentre, is now available in Denmark. While normally we stock up on this little miracle worker while travelling to France, now Embryolisse products - full range - are available at Matas and Magasin. 
It is a truly amazing product, that moisturises, helps cleanse your skin, eliminates any skin irritations, and apparently can even be used as a baby-care product. And now this best-kept French secret can be yours: enjoy!

Baking Spree: Blueberry Muffins and Pumpkin Bread

After a long winter, the spring has finally arrived: beautiful and incredibly sunny. There is something different in the air, and suddenly we have so much more energy. After a two-month break, it is also great to get back to baking: this weekend we've been indulging in these crumbly, juicy blueberry muffins and superbly delicious pumpkin bread (not really a spring ingredient, but we could eat pumpkin-everything the whole year round). Both are light, quick and easy to make, and it was so great to fill the house with a fresh aroma of the baked goods. Have a happy spring week ahead!
