Hello darlings!

I hope you all have had a merry Christmas followed by some relaxing holiday time. It's been a while since the last post since the christmas calendar faded away a bit to soon, hehe. As a matter of fact that is actually why I'd like to thank you. Thank you for still visiting our blog after we failed to provide the Christmas calendar we promised! Normally I'd just say that we are sorry but a couple of days ago Adriana Lima (the Victoria's Secret legend) posted a picture on Instagram saying that it's better to thank people instead of saying that you re sorry. Like, instead of "sorry I'm late" you say "thank you for waiting for me" and by doing that you don't focus on the negativity in a apology but instead on the gratitude in a thank you. I thought it sounded kind of nice and I'll try to use this method more often :)

And that was all I had to say for today so have a happy new years tomorrow and I'll see you in 2017!

Hello Darlings!

I am so sorry for the missing post! I totally forgot that it was my turn to blog and open the 16th window the other day. I was out Christmas shopping all afternoon and when I got home I just packed my things before we headed to our country place. The blog post had totally slipped my mind. But better late than never, right?

Something that have become quite common (maybe it's always been, idk?) is to have different Christmas games. Usually where everyone buys a gift and then you play some sort of game so that everyone gets a present. Anyway sometimes it can be hard to find gifts that fits a lot of people so for the 16th window I'm giving 5 tips of these types of gifts.

1. A blanket. It tend to be quite cold in a lot of places during this time of year which means that a cosy blanket is always appreciated.

2. Headphones/earphones. Basically everyone uses these maybe even your grandparents and I think we all have broken a few pair of earphones. An extra pair is always good.

3. A board game. Board games should not be underestimated. They can be a lot of fun when you gather a bunch of friends or your whole family so find a game that suits you Christmas game group and maybe you can play afterwards.

4. A scented candle/votive. Everyone could use another candle in their room/apartment/house. There always a good contributor to a cosy atmosphere.

5. A nice cup. Who doesn't love a new cup for their tea, coffee or hot chocolate? I myself love having different cups with different exiting patterns!

I hope you'll find some inspiration for your next Christmas game gift and if nothing of this fits your group of friends or family then you can always go some some good old chocolate ;) See you again tomorrow!

Hello Darlings!

I am so happy right now because we just had our final test for the year this week meaning I am now ready to start to wind down! With the test behind me the holidays just seem to be getting closer and closer. And since I am so excited I thought I'd show you my favourite activities to do during (or right before) the Christmas Break.

-Go Ice Skating

-Go to a Christmas Market

-Shop during the Sales

-Watch my favourite Christmas movies

-Bake all your favourite Candy and cookies

-Decorate the Christmas Tree

-Make Holiday cards

-If there is snow, build and igloo

Now you know what I am going to be doing the rest of december! No but seriously I am so excited to do all of these stuff and to just be able to rest without having to worry about school and homeworks. And ED has already given you guys some incredible baking advice and recipes and SA some great tips for decorating. With that being said I truly hope you've had or will have a great Sunday, lots of love!

XOXO

Hello darlings!

I hope you've had a wonderful Tuesday. I myself have been extremely tired today and even after a two hour nap,this afternoon I had to fight to keep my eyes open. But after all it's still been a good day with a lot of christmas spirit! Speaking of Christmas spirit it's time to open the 13th door in the Christmas calendar so let's get right to it!

Today I'll give you a recipe to a very easy but still delicious Christmas treat!

It's very basic and all you need is:

About 200g of cooking chocolate- you can use either dark or milk chocolate or mix them together.

About a handful of cornflakes - Just put in until it got a nice texture there should be a lot but not so that it's dry.

About 1-2 tbsp of oil or butter whatever you prefer.

Flavouring: Orange zest from 1 orange or grated coconut etc.

Break the chocolate inte pieces and then melt it using the microwave. It's done pretty quickly but you have to stir about every 15th-30th second. When it's melted put in the oil or butter and then the cornflakes and flavouring if you choose to have any. Put parchment paper over a plate or baking sheet and make small peaks with the batter. You can also put it in tiny cupcake forms. Then, put them in the refrigerator until they're cool and solid. Enjoy!

As I said you can use whatever chocolate and flavourings you prefer but one of my favourites is dark chocolate (or mixed with a majority of dark) with orange zest. Play around with different combinations to find your favourite.

I'll hope you try it and that you'll have a nice couple of days until I'll see you next time!

Hello Darlings!

It's NN here and I hope you've had a nice weekend weekend and that your monday wasn't to hard. At the moment I am super tired and hopefully I'll be able to catch some sleep very soon...Buuuuuut before that it is time to open window number 12 in the calendar!

Okey so my first calendar post was of my favourite and best tips for Christmas movies and now I feel is the time to continue that list so here are three more of my favourite Christmas movies for you to enjoy!

1. How the Grinch stole Christmas: This movie were Jim Carrey plays the perfect grumpy Grinch is a Christmas essential. A hilarious but absolutely adorable classic which will help the Christmas spirit just right!

2.Frozen: I know, I know okey! This movie was so super duper hyped that we all grew tired of it after a while but it truly is a magical disney movie that just suits this season perfectly. So snuggle up in the couch and watch this whilst you without any shame or holdbacks sings let it go at the top your lungs.

3. Harry Potter: Now I know this isn't technically a Christmas movie but yet it seems to embody the christmas spirit just perfectly. Either you simply settle for one of the many or you have a marathon where you can just stay inside all day and maybe try out all of ED's wonderful beverages at the same time?

I truly hope that you will enjoy these movies and that you'll have a lovely day. Now I am going to sleep because I am exhausted, take care!

Hello darlings!

Today I've been cooking Christmas food all day. My grandparents usually hosts Christmas for all our family so today I was at their place to help them with some of the cooking. After five hours the food was cooling down and almost ready to go into the freezer for two weeks wait. So that's the reason for the late christmas calendar opening today. But let's see whats behinds the 10th door! Well yesterday NN gave you some inspiration for what to wear outside to stay warm and today I'll be showing you some of my favourite clothing to keep warm inside.

First of (left) I have this cosy grey polo sweater. I love this one since you can wear it all from chilly summer nights to cold winter days. It's also easy to style as it goes well with most things.

In the middle we have a beige knitted sweater that's really comfy and very useable. And I also got this on in dark green (right) as it's a very basic knitted sweater.

I also love to wear ponchos (left) when it's cold since it's like caring a blanket around at all times which makes it great for cold schools or offices etc. Here's a beige one with some black stripes. This one is not very warm compared to some of my other ones but it still helps a lot when you're cold :) In the middle I got some warm cosy socks that's a must have for me during the winter. They are comfy to year at home but they're also good as they're not that thick so you can wear them in some shoes as well. To the right we have another knitted sweater, as I'm clearly a big fan of those (who aren't?!), this time in white with this nice pattern. It got a wintery look and it's warm, what more can we ask for?

(some of the clothes look a little pinkish for some unknown reason but they're not, it's some light thing)


Hope you found some inspiration for your winter closet and I'll see you soon!

Today is the eighth day of Christmas. What is hiding behind today's window is: 3 tips on how to get a good Christmas feeling.

1. Music
The music is so important. You need to listen to Christmas songs, because you really get a christmas sense of it. Here is a good playlist.

2. Decorations
You need to decorate everything with Christmas colors like red, green, gold and silver. Just imagine waking up to a house with cheerful colors and a beautiful decorated Christmas tree. Another thing that I also like to decorate with is candles and other lights.

3. You
The last thing you need is a sense, you have to bring joy and a good atmosphere in the family. It's always enjoyable when you are not fighting about a lot of unnecessary things. You should instead try to enjoy the time you spend with your family and friends.

Hello darlings!

Six days of December have past and it's now time to start the 7th. And what better way is there to start a day than with some christmas music? That's why I'm giving you a christmas playlist for today's calendar. I'm going to give you 10 of my current favourite christmas songs today and who knows what the future may bring (maybe a full playlist?). Here we go:

1. Fairytale of New York - The Pogues, Kirsty MacColl This has been my favourite christmas song for a long time now, I just love everything about it!

2. Do they know it's christmas?- Band aid I got all the different versions on my christmas playlist. They are all good (since they're basically the same) but my favourite atm is the one from 2014.

3. Santa Claus is coming to town - Glee Cast There are so many versions of this upbeat happy song but one of my favourites right now is the Glee Cast as well as Dolly Parton's and Justin Bieber's so I got them all on my playlist

4. Little drummer boy - Johnny Cash This is my favourite version of the song because I love his deep voice, hah.

5. Happy Xmas (War Is Over) - Céline Dion Such a beautiful and cosy song.

6. It must have been love (christmas for the broken hearted)- Roxette It's not a typical christmas song but it's very beautiful and it kind of has christmas in its title so It qualifies for the christmas playlist.

7. Fa La La (a capella)- Justin Bieber, Boyz II Men This song has such a nice soft sound and I love that it's a capella.

8. All I want For Christmas is you - Mariah Carey What is a christmas list without this classic ;)

9. Jingle Bell Rock - Hot Chelle Rae Just because it reminds me of Mean Girls and it's easy to sing along with.

10. Mistletoe - Justin Bieber I know, another Bieber song but it has that cosy sound with a lot of christmas feeling.

Put these songs on in the car or your headphones and enjoy on your way to work, school or wherever you're going! Hope you like them! I'd love to hear your comments or you favourite christmas songs so feel free to comment :)

Hello darlings!

I hope you had a nice weekend and that you're managing through this period which tends to be filled with an overload of work. It's the sixth of December and time to open window number 6.

Since I am, just like I suspect you are, drowning in work this will just be a very short blog post with three pieces which I am currently obsessing over!


The shoes are from Mango and I've been eyeing them for months looking for the perfect fall/winter boots and I think they are just it with the sleek black and simple gold.

The white polo is from H&M and a must have for this cold season, it is easy to dress up as well as down.

I don't know exactly where Kendall got her coat from but the Leopard Coat is an essential statement piece this winter (but please only wear a fake one). I did however find a similar one at NAKD .

Have a nice Tuesday darlings and au revoir because now I have to continue to study.
