Rise and Shine: Paleo Breakfast Apple Muffins

If you are looking to upgrade your breakfast from a traditional latte and muesli / yoghurt combination, to something more flavourful and REALLY healthy, check out these amazingly simple Apple Muffins. There is no flour or sugar in them: just almond meal, juicy apples, honey, cinnamon and just a bit of butter. Could be made in 10 min flat (plus 20 min in the oven), and voila: delicious injection of energy!

Summer time!

What a beautiful weekend. With temperatures jumping to +20C, suddenly everything around looks brighter, prettier, everyone is out in shorts, tank tops, cool sunglasses. The parks, walking streets and Torverhallerne bursting with happy crowds sipping chilled rose. If you are searching for the comfiest footwear for this summer season, check out Soya Fish slip-ons and sneakers: cool, light, quirky. And there are tons of beautiful and not so pricey sunglasses, if you wish to update your style, at & Other Stories. Have fun !

Happy Delicious Easter!

The sun is shining, and Easter Sunday is finally here! How are you celebrating Easter this year? We've been lucky to visit Ukraine and get home to Denmark just on-time for Easter lunch, so it feels like we're celebrating twice - fantastic. If you happen to be in Kyiv or Lviv, make sure to stop by the incredible Lviv Handmade Chocolate boutique-cafe: they have probably one of the widest selections and best chocolates we've ever tasted. Try traditional Ukrainian painted eggs and of course the Pasochky - Easter cake (see the photos of home-made ones from Lviv (thank you, Nata, Katya & Nastya) and Kyiv (dyakuyu, Vaidochka). 
Have the loveliest, happiest, most delicious Easter, filled with sunshine, flowers, yummy Easter cakes, traditional Ukrainian painted eggs and lots of chocolate Easter eggs hidden by the Easter Bunny. Be happy, grateful and joyous wherever you are.

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 !
