Since the baby is down for a nap and H is off putting his car back together (he had it repainted), I have some me-time. In stead of tidying up and doing laundry, I thought I’d spend it among good friends: Marie Claire, Elle, Vogue, Graza and InStyle. I made myself a cup of Kusmi’s Spicy Chocolate tea (highly recommended!) and lit a beautiful scented candle from Byredo parfums (the one I have is called ‘Tree house’ and let me tell you, it’s the crème de la crème of scented candles). This sure is shaping up to be the perfect afternoon. Toodles!

Very proud of myself 🙂
I learned to read when I was about three years old. The little bug still has 2 years and 4 months to go, but I guess she’s getting a head start. Her favorite thing to do with books: completely neglect the one she has in front of her and grab the one someone else is reading. Greedy already, the little rugrat!
The excuse for the massive blog-drought this time is that we had my mommy dearest over for a visit. It was the coziest family week so obviously once she left last night I couldn’t stop weeping. We spent our days mostly playing with baby & pooch, eating, drinking wine, going for walks and just having a laugh (who knew my mum and H could suck that bad at Super Mario?), really.
Now we’re back to our everyday routine and the upcoming weekend will bring a flea market to our neighborhood! I rented a spot and two clothes-racks so I’ll have the opportunity to clean out our closet and sell stuff we no longer use. What better way to earn some extra money to waste carelessly on new items of clothing? So if you live anywhere close to Nõmme, come check it out and see us this Saturday!
We’re also planning a trip to Finland to see a cool exposition at the Espoo Museum of Modern Art and visit some friends (and maybe some stores if I’m lucky). We have to get up really early to make the morning ferry but I’m guessing our little lady will be just fine and up for anything we plan for her 🙂 She’s great that way!
Pictures from when we went to dinner at H’s mom’s house.
Nice cheese plate tip: take your camembert/brie, sprinkle some nice olive oil over it, grind some black pepper (and rosé if you appreciate the taste) on top and shove it in the oven for 10-15 minutes. It’s absolutely brilliant!
