Weekend Reading

A homemade life

  • I visited the incredible city of Copenhagen in June this year for my birthday and to visit a friend who lives in this city. I loved it from the very first moment and I’m secretly planning a second visit. Apparently I am not the only one who loves Denmark. Faye, the talented lady behind the blog Farfelue, shares some of her amazing photos of her trip to Copenhagen.
  • According to Vogue’s list of places in France every woman has to visit, I need to up my travel game. It makes me feel like I have to pack my suitcase and move to France. I’d love to visit Musée Christian Dior in Granville and the amazing garden Vaux le Vicomte in Maincy.
  • Put the champagne on ice, turn on the Mariah Carey album and enjoy the pretty Christmas lights, it’s holiday party season! It’s finally time to prepare your wardrobe for the holidays! Harper’s Bazaar shares twenty looks that take festive style to another level.
  • From the editors of Elle Decor: the ten most common home decorating mistakes everybody makes and how to avoid these design mistakes.
  • In case you haven’t noticed the amazing blog of Garance Dore, here’s a short introduction: Garance Dore is an incredibly talented writer, storyteller and photographer. Reading her blog posts has become part of my everyday routine since I discovered her a few months ago. What makes her blog so special, is that despite becoming one of the world’s most renowned bloggers, she has managed to maintain the kindness and down to earthness that made her blog so successful in the first place. I wanted to share this inspiring blog post that she wrote about saying goodbye to Facebook and how it changed the way she and her loved ones get in touch with each other.
