Did you celebrate Valentine’s Day or are you one of those that feel it’s just another Hallmark Holiday!?
I am not usually the romantic type, but I do love being remembered on Valentine’s Day. It has also become a bit of a deal for my daughter, she just love celebrations and when Friday the 14th Feb arrived we did make an effort.
Mark bought her a Valentine’s card, two roses (one for me and one for her), and we also made a voucher so that she could pick o new movie on ITunes. We placed it all on the table in our living room together with a plate of pastries so that it was waiting for her when she came home from pre-school. She was absolutely ecstatic.
What I didn’t realise was that he had got me a surprise too.
I am forever browsing the internet for new outfits, every night I’m with my IPad on the sofa and I guess it’s become my hobby. I’ve noticed that I spend more time ”window shopping” than read books these days and possibly beacuse I don’t really have time for shopping anymore, not the way I used too.
In the past few weeks I have ”almost bought” clothes worth thousands and thousands of kronor (SEK). I am very proud of myself that I haven’t gone wild. For each purchase that I’ve nearly made, I have evaluated exactly what I had in my shopping bag and exactly what I have in my wardrobe and I’ve stopped myself every time. Well, nearly every time.
Last week I bought a long coat from Hope, which arrived home and turned out to be a disaster. It was swiftly returned. Last night I clicked home a jacket from Filippa K, (see below) and this one I may actually keep. It will be great with ballet flats, jeans and a t-shirt this spring. By the way, I am kick starting my spring with a work trip to New Orleans, USA, in April. Cant wait!
I am planning the next family trip. It’s with excitement that I am making plans for Storlien. Storlien is in the Swedish Mountains of Jämtland, or as we all say ”fjällen”.
The expression ”fjällen” though, is quite a generic label and refers to all ski resorts in Sweden, which are quite a few as you can imagine. We have been going to Storlien, the very same resort where the Royal Family have their Ski Lodge. But it’s not posh at all which is quite nice. It’s the most chilled out lottle village I have ever been too.
Do you think I am a label addict on the slopes? Well, yes but not these kind of labels. When I ski I prefer to wear Swedish gear, to support my the Swedish Outdoor Indutry!
It would be to cool though, to wear this kind of stuff whilst skiing. Perhaps I need at least goggles from Gucci!?
