Fertility Treatment: The Intricate Road Of PCO

You’ve sent me so many words throughout and after my year in treatment. All of those streams of thoughts, grief and happiness in my DM, via email and here. You still send me messages when ‘it’s there’ – which really touches me deeply. And you also write when it isn’t there. When you, like me, experience an ectopic pregnancy and feel ‘well-prepared’ (insofar as that’s possible) after having read my post…

Happy Weekend

I tell you, my kitchen reeks of sweaty feet, haha! Whilst baby’s breath are incredibly beautiful, covering the entire rainbow in terms of their colour scheme, they stink of old fart or cat urine. And it’s not the colouring – the flowers have just been absorbing dyed water, I reckon; it’s the actual flowers. Which makes me wonder, WHY have they been a staple in bridal bouquets for so many years??…

Happy Valentine’s Dog

Frida, eight years! My heart! Do you remember the time when Frida wrote her own birthday post?? She has had this amazing ability to sneak her way into OOTD series over the years  – and professional shoots even. She used to be a real prize dog – just take a look at these puppy shots of her, omg! A pug puppy beats even poor photo quality. Frida my Frida. My heart’s desire for so many years. Today, the…

To Do Or Not To Do Genetic Selection?

Photos by Alona Vibe I’ve been pondering and pondering and thinking and thinking and speaking to Adam, speaking to lovely Trine (who, like Adam, is a carrier of the BRCA gene, about which she is sharing some thoughts HERE), speaking to friends and reading all of your thoughts following this post on the subject of when to have a second child. As I’m still practicing thinking ‘when’ rather than ‘whether’ – I realise that I’m in some…

Everyday Snaps

What a magnificent week! I was out two times – after 8pm and after having tucked in Eddie. It semi-worked, sort of. But, wow, was it lovely. Just getting out and feeling like myself. I was productive at work, had a good time at baby swimming, ate quite a few cream puffs (we’re testing our way to finding the best ones in town; so far, Social Foodies hold the lead) and…

OOTD: Frosty Cheeks And Layers Upon Layers

It’s been a while since I last did an outfit series, huh? At least a few weeks, hah! And shot with Alona? Yup, it has almost been a year since we shot H&M Conscious Exclusive. And, well, birth photos. Damnit! All time favourite shots. Hence the faltering self-confidence, I just haven’t felt up for it. Outfit photos, that is. Which is why, in essence, it was totally okay to not participate in Fashion…

The Cold Sweat Of Climate Anxiety

^^^From our roadtrip in 2017 I think I’ve got a case of climate anxiety. It hasn’t moved in permanently yet; it tends to appear out of the blue and cause a light palpitation and exam-stomach. Mainly when I watch and read the news (why I often skip them). And when I gaze down on Eddie during one of our (many) breastfeeding moments. Will he be able to have kids in…

Who Am I?

I find the feedback on the brief mentioning of my lack of self-confidence so interesting that I decided to turn to the keyboard once again. The thing is that it may be a tad difficult for others to recognise this if you’re really good at smiling and being on. Which I am! It also has been my job for very many years. As a radio host, I had to master…

Everyday Snaps

Hundredth edition of these everyday glimpses, my girls and guys! That’s some sort of anniversary. And this time, we’re looking back on a real January-like January. The kind with grey weather, melancholy and nostalgia. I wish we could go away! I really, really wish, but you’ll have to wait until May for our next holiday, which once again will be in Italy. We’re just so in love with the country…

Happy Weekend!

I just can’t help writing ‘fiiiinally weekend!’ Even if we currently are enjoying most hours of the weekdays together as well. Doing nice things. A good long walk. A trip to the swimming pool. Breakfast at cafes. And then I’ll typically work in the afternoons and evenings, which works well for now. Spending the best hours of the day together, all three of us, makes the weeks quite weekend-like –…
