Oatmeal Cocoa Cookies

Looking for some homemade alternative to the store-bought cookies? Check out the latest super easy, delicious recipe from our favourite Danish blog Cute Carbs: we adapted it a little, adding less sugar and substituting oats with muesli (a much crunchier mix). You will be done in under 20 min. Enjoy the cookies and sunny weekend. We are off to the next BLCK reunion, this time in Paris !

Copenhagen In the Sun

There is no better place we can think of, than Copenhagen - when the sun is shining, that is. Everyone looks happy, relaxed, grilling outside on their terraces or enjoying the bloom in Copenhagen parks. And if you are looking for a cool new place to enjoy chilled rose and some food with it, try Grill Royal on Kongens Nytorv: excellent burgers, moules marinieres and beef, plus a cozy setting. To wind down at night, bring your wine outside to the terrace and enjoy some of the best Belgian chocolates (we got the prettiest box straight from Brussels!). Have a great sunny week.

Good Food

Good food is as essential to our well-being as, say, sunny weather on a weekend, going on vacation, a good morning kiss. It was therefore such a delight to experience all the excellent food italian Monza has to offer, while visiting it on business last week. Breakfasts and dinners in Monza were the highlights of this business trip. If you happen to be there, for business or pleasure, ensure to book a table at Oppio Osteria: unforgettable experience and truly THE best tiramisu we've ever eaten. Happy sunday !

New Outfit For Your iPhone

We've been looking for a season appropriate replacement to our favourite January-themed iPhone case, and found a myriad of fun, bright and happy new outfits on Society6 - an amazing virtual art-place. Apart from iPhone cases, you can find prints, coffee mugs, t-shirts, rugs, throw pillows, wall-clocks, shower curtains, and many other things that would make your home even cosier. Society6 ships internationally, and e.g. shipment to Denmark (from the U.S.) costs only USD 10. 
So, which one of these iPhone cases is your favourite for upcoming summer season? We're torn between My Happy Place and Hang In There Baby… Have a good one!
