A Few of My Favourite Things

+ I use my little stovetop espresso maker daily for lattés.  I love the ritual and the sound of it bubbling and I love that the technology is simple yet efficient.  I would take this over a Nespresso machine any day.  
+This 100% cashmere sweater is so darn soft.  I wear it weekly, if not more as it's the perfect weight - it's warm without being too warm.
+Last year, I searched all winter for the perfect black coat to no avail.  When I came across this one on the All Saints website, I had to have it.  I ordered it online and had it shipped to our hotel in Brussels in order to avoid the high taxes and import fees in Norway.  The cut is really interesting and the Italian leather sleeves are ridiculously soft.
+ I bought these Hudson jeans at Selfridges last year while in London and I practically live in them.  I roll up the bottoms (because I'm short) and because they fit a little loose, they're more like boyfriends.  The denim is so, so soft and comfortable.
+ When I cut eight inches off my hair this Fall, I really wanted to try curling my hair.  My hair is naturally very straight and it really struggles to hold curl but this wand manages to do it.  It's quick and easy to use and I love that it looks pretty natural.
+ My Christmas present from Joe this year was an iPhone 5S.  I was dying for an upgrade from my 4 and I've been so happy with this new version.  
+ Lately, we've been capping off the night with a cup of Pukka Nighttime tea.  I'm not sure if it's the tea itself or the routine of ending the night quietly with a warm drink but I feel like I sleep better with it.  I also really like this Elderberry & Echinacea tea.
+ While the winter weather in Stavanger has been anything but dry, my skin has been loving this shower oil.  The scent is mild and pleasant and I haven't had to slather on lotion as much as normal.


  1. a great roundup of things! i love those coffee makers :)

  2. definitely diggin the jeans!

  3. i love my 5s too. mostly for the camera. such a big difference between the 4 and 5s camera

  4. I'm trying to muster up the courage to chop my hair, but I need a good glad you posted this! I'm doing it. I'm doing it. I'm doing it and I'm buying that wand. ;)

    1. It took me several months to build the courage to cut but I'm happy I did it! The change was needed! And the wand is great - the curls are pretty intense directly after using it but once it calms down, it looks good. Sometimes I can even get away with sleeping on it and still having nice waves for day 2!

  5. Pukka Chai. I am officially addicted.

  6. Your new black coat is gorgeous!
