Road trip – only two more weeks before the trip

alba bici illustrations
Wow! 2 weeks ago I really started to get nervous… that was when I realised that we only had 4 more weeks.

4 more weeks to prepare and to be able to leave with nothing left on the to-do-list…

Another 2 more weeks later and the “deadline” keeps me busy. Pushing me to prepare the blog as good and as much as possible. But of course there are other things to prepare to: what to take {and what not… 9 weeks away you really do not want to have things in your bag you never need}, what to do “sur place” and and and…

What to do with the car, the plants, the mail… you name it.

Antoine & Leonor’s bedroom

Antoine & Leonor's bedroom

I did it! I finally took pictures of Antoine & Leonor’s new bedroom. You remember that we changed things around when Josephine joined us. My old office / guest room moved out and became another kids bedroom.

We now have one playroom, Romy has her own room {where Antoine used to sleep too until the change}, a bedroom for Antoine & Leonor and a corner for the baby in our {truly giant} bedroom. And as I often get asked how old the kids are when it comes to rooms and where they sleep: Romy is 9 {in just a few weeks}, Antoine 6, Leonor 3 1/2 and Josephine 8 months. {at time of this post}

So we do have a 6 year old boy and a 3 1/2 year old girl sharing a bedroom. As you know I am totally not into the gender stereotype – not much of pink and blue going on here.
Let’s have a look at the room and how we managed a neutral place where everyone feels comfortable:

Lex&Liv Footwear

lex&liv baby moccasins
You are probably aware that the baby moccasin market is blooming. There are many many brands out there, most rather similar in style {moccasins are moccasins in the end} as well as in colours which is because the leather comes from the same supplier for everyone {if they are going down the natural road and most are}.

BUT there are surprises out there. Sweet little germs… and I found one.

Lex&Liv Footwear is a stylish line of American handmade, soft-soled, leather children’s shoes. I am in love with all the details, the little extras… the feather style, the elegance and and and… just perfect!

Mis Crios

Mis Crios
Mis Crios  is a timeless yet modern collection for kids and women. Designed by Cecilia Sörensen in Helsinki. Made in Europe.

The idea behind the Mis Crios collection is a no-fuss approach. All garments are very easily dressed without inconvenient zippers or buttons complicating daily life. Made from very high quality fabrics the pieces will last forever and can be worn all year long.

I really like this combination of high quality and casual, something I aim for in my wardrobe as well,  you create outfits that are modern and also a bit romantic, a twist of northern style… and basically you look perfect for just any occasions!
