And so at once, springs has turned into summer with balmy weather reaching into the 30s. I’ve decided to take a mini holiday and enjoy a long weekend at the beach. With Ascension day last Thursday, Sebastian and I packed our bags for Zandvoort, followed by dinners at Mango’s with Virgin Mojitos and tapas on the menu.

It’s days like these, creativity is starting to flow freely. I have been working on my objectives and new projects in my agenda and also managed to finish Paolo Coelho’s book on Mata Hari. Normalcy is gradually returning, instilling a sense of peace.

Sebastian was quick to find friends to play with

I got the opportunity to wear my new Michael Kors flip flops

I had promised for a long time to take my girl out for shopping, lunch and dinner (not necessarily in that order). With a hectic schedule it hasn’t been easy to find a date, but eventually we managed to nail yesterday as D-day. After hours of shopping, I’m not sure what feels more sore…my wallet or my feet. But most importantly the girl received the princess treatment in style. After 6 hours on the go and a meeting in between, we ended the day at Pompstation in Amsterdam. A splendid dinner to end a terrific day.

a lot of walking through Amsterdam’s canal district

More shopping

ending with drinks…

There isn’t a single day that goes by that I don’t think of my mum. I have her pictures on the most important spot in the house – on a family heirloom together with a prized collection of perfumes. It stands opposite my bed, thus I go to bed and wake up with my mum in mind and heart. Today is her birthday and it’s with both sadness and gratitude I commemorate her. As time goes by her legacy is greater than ever before. A wonderful woman who has given me so much strength and courage throughout my life.

Jag älskar dig ❤

My daughter came to surprise me with an early mother’s day gift yesterday. Luxury body cream, scrub, shower gel and tea! But best of all was her announcement – you are the best mum in the world! Honey, it made not only my day but my week. xx


thank you darling
