Easter Basket for Young & Old

By | DIY, Life & style, Mamalife, Play | 2 Comments

Even before mamahood, gift giving was kind of my biggest hobby. And nowadays with baby (pardon me, toddler of course) I’m kind of in non-stop gift giving frenzy…! The explanation being: little one simply „needs“ so much stuff… From everyday basic clothes to functional wear like rain boots to books, toys, tablewear and snack boxes… Endless. With a toddler, shopping…

E’s Kitchen

By | DIY, Life & style, Mamalife, Play, Various | One Comment

Hi folks, I’m back, and hasn’t it been ages, again… Sure couldn’t have planned for a better return than this, though. Having a toddler means getting to indulge in things that we, as grown-ups, tend to forget to enjoy. Immersing ourselves in play, simple, infinite play. I never thought I was going to be the mama who fills the home…

Elma’s Universe

By | Interior, Life & style, Mamalife | 2 Comments

We’re a liiiittle late to the party regarding nursery “reveals”, given that little is alredy four months (what? eep!) old. Aren’t you supposed to do that before birth? Anyway. Ahem. But then again, a couple of inevitabilities (and, well, baby! ha, my favorite excuse these days) brought us this far: unorganized state (which we all know really is a euphemism…

Hot Chocolate Spoons

By | DIY, From my kitchen, Life & style, Sweet | One Comment

Hey friends! I’m back with a bang and some chocolate, ha! I’ve been busy working – also creating recipes, styling, taking pictures… But just not on this space. At least not as often as i would have loved to. If you’ve read my latest post, you know that there are a few things happening in my life. We got married in…

Hot Chocolate Bar & Giveaway (closed)

By | Life & style, Sweet | 83 Comments

Ever since I had the first (proper) hot chocolate (memory) from real, melted chocolate (and, quite needless to say, not just from powder), I was hooked. There was no going back. I used to sip on such a rich, “real” chocolat chaud in the beautiful town of Aixe en Provence, in the South of France, during our family vacations. It…

Gooseberry Ricotta Cake

By | Flowers, Sweet | 3 Comments

Hei Hei, I’m back! Back from our little summer vacay in Finland – and already back (knee deep) at work. The holidays passed fairly quickly, then again, our stay in the rural log cabin in the lake country of Finland, near Kuopio, was magic and uplifting and also strangely felt like time stood still. I’m convinced nature does that to…

Flaky, Buttery Scones

By | Flowers, From my kitchen | One Comment

To start things off: I’m really sorry – crushed, actually – for that long absence from F&F! It’s been too long (you can tell this by spotting the peonies, who are clearly not late summer flowers, ahem… still very pretty though, and a shame to waste a perfectly good picture). Uncharacteristically, I’ve neglected this space for over a week. And…

Simple & Quick Coconut Loaf

By | Flowers, From my kitchen, Sweet | One Comment

Coconut is probably one of my favorite flavors… I don’t necessarily mean the (cheap) perfumes and body sprays (the term alone…) I used as a teenager. I admit I slightly overdid it with these. Much rather, I refer to the connotations of coconut with summer, sun and beaches – because obviously I’ve spent my beach vacations in Italy, where freshly sliced coconuts are being offered…

Raspberry Swiss Roll

By | Flowers, From my kitchen | No Comments

Funnily, this dessert, that I’ve eaten countless times during my childhood – mostly on garden party occasions in our back yard. But have since neglected, inexplicably, is apparently called “Swiss Roll”. At least, that what pinterest recently indicated it as. Around here, it’s simply known as a “Raspberry Roulade” or “Biscuit Roulade”, which I find slightly more accurate (considering I’m also “Swiss”,…
