Rainy Days

Autumn is finally here and the weather has been quite grey. It's been lovely to spend some time indoors though; having a cup of tea and getting cozy with a magazine. 

Have a lovely weekend!

Aesop Love

A rainy Sunday called for a bit of pampering. I adore Aesop for their great product range and beautiful packaging. Thank you dear friend who gifted me these products! 

The face brush peeking from the tray is by Iris Hantverk, available at my online store Pikku-Kota.

One Nordic

Have you heard of One Nordic Furniture Company? Their collection includes beautiful and quirky designs that are timeless yet contemporary. I am particularly in love with their Key side table and here's the good news; they deliver around the world!

I am also dreaming of having pendant lights above our dining table and I think this combination of white and copper (with marble in the background!) looks amazing!

Don't you just love these bottle grinders from Danish design company Menu? I love the new "Nude" colour and I think they look perfect with grey, light wood and marble. 

Don't forget to check Menu's new catalogue for more beautiful design!

It's been a very warm start to autumn here in Sydney and on most days it still feels like summer. Humidity has been similar to what we usually get in February and that has made days feel even muggier. Hence I gladly accepted an offer to review and taste test Bionade, a refreshing organic soft drink that's been a best seller in Europe for quite some time and is now making its way down under. 

I must admit I was a bit hesitant first and I thought this drink would be way too sweet for my liking. I haven't been able to drink sugary soft drinks for ages and those sweetened artificially don't suit my gut at all. However, I was really pleasantly surprised by Bionade; it is not overly sweet and it also isn't overly carbonated. There are four flavours currently available: Herbs, Orange & Ginger, Lychee and Elderberry, all of them which I really enjoyed, but if I had to pick a favourite it'd probably be Lychee. So glad I have Bionade to get me through these warm and humid autumn days!
