This year is all about Lego for my son, who turns six this week. Ninjago and Batman are high on his wishlist. He can play for hours with a small Lego man or the Batmobile. Therefore, we decided to buy some more Lego Ninjago for him, and his sister picked out the new Villads from Valby book for him. I’ve collected a few other things from his wishlist for you today. If you need even more inspiration, I’ve got a board on Pinterest for you to check out as well.

This week my little guy turns six years old. Wow! We want to throw a big party in our garden, with lots of treats and cake, fun and games, and a walk along the fjord, to look at all the ships. The coming weekend is all about ships here in Aalborg with the Tall Ships Races 2015. But the main event is of course his birthday party. Here are some of the ideas I’ve collected for they party.
A Smores Brownie Pie from Averie Cooks
A pretty number 6 from Søstrene Grene
Amazing watermelon printable ice cream cone wrappers from Design Eat Repeat
Party popcorn She wears many hats
Lots and lots of fruit. Maybe like these from Trendenser
Frozen banana pops from Sugar Hero
Actually, I don’t have a lot on my Friday craving list this week. I haven’t stumpled upon that much since last week – maybe it’s because I’m still wrapped up in holiday mood. However, I did see some really exciting news. In October I’ll have one item on my craving list: the new Kinfolk book – The Kinfolk Home.
This is what Amazon writes about the book:
The Kinfolk Home takes readers inside 35 homes around the world, from the United States, Scandinavia, Japan, and beyond. Some have constructed modern urban homes from blueprints, while others nurture their home’s long history. What all of these spaces have in common is that they’ve been put together carefully, slowly, and with great intention. Featuring inviting photographs and insightful profiles, interviews, and essays, each home tour is guaranteed to inspire.
This week I started looking at some of the AW15 collections for the kids. I’ve collected a few things, which I’ll probably end up buying for my girl. Later this week or the beginning of next week, I’ll also show you what I’ve found for my little guy.
1. Cute lip balm from H&M – it would also be the perfect birthday gift for the girls in her class.
2. Lace-up patent bootie from Zara – they remind me of my old black Dr. Martens I had in the 1990s
3. Heart printed snood from Zara – this is so cute, I almost want one myself
4. Casual Tote Bag from Zara
5. Gym clothes
6. Gym Bag from H&M
I almost feel like it isn’t really summer if I haven’t been to Gothenburg in Sweden. Last week we decided on a day trip this year with both kids. Unfortunately, the ferry had a little accident on Sunday, and we had to change our plans. We were all pretty excited about the trip, but we decided to go during our fall break instead.
I wanted to return to my favourite coffee spot da Matteo with my husband and both kids.

But I also recently discovered another coffee spot, Kafé Magasinet, which I’ve been wanting to explore.
