Ski bunnies

We escaped the city for a little ski-ing up North. Just our family, the wonderful white nature, the peace and quiet of the snow filled forests and fresh air all day long. A lit fireplace and a sauna every night. We love our yearly trips to cross country- and downhill ski. Great cozy meals and playing games at night. We do spend time together at home but it’s always a little different when you change the scenery.

I am very unsurprisingly in navy and white at the slopes but we got the kids colorful Colmar outfits from the sale last year ( I shared it here). Great for spotting them at the slopes especially as in Finland there is often snow or the weather is otherwise grey. You want people to actually see you to not get run over. This is what we learned last year when trying to spot our friends and one of their kids had a very brightly colored helmet and pants. We could always spot her from the lifts.

Slow cooking

by Sofia   -   in Cooking

I have a Le Creuset Dutch oven that I like to use for braising things and making stews but lately I have wondered if I should get an actual crock-pot slow cooker. If I have understood correctly you can leave it on during the day and then it slowly cooks your meal while you work. Or you can make a lovely porridge overnight and wake up for it in the am. There are actual slow cooker cook books available as well as Pinterest full of ideas. As we do have a pantry I thought it would also find a spot in my house in case I don’t want to have it in the kitchen counter all the time. But I did find a white one which is a bonus for me. 

What do you think? Do you own and use a slow cooker? If you do please share your ideas and thoughts on it. I asked on Instagram and I got no con´s from those of you who have one but plenty of pro´s. So I think my mind is already headed this way. But I do not just buy on a whim so I’ll give my thoughts some time to stew ( pun intended) as well as discuss with the rest of my family to see what they think. But the idea of coming home from work to a warm meal that has been slowly cooking to perfection during the day or to wake up to a lovely porridge in the morning kind of has me excited. Think lovely soups, or a bowl of chili or even a tagine or some lovely stew. And Martha Stewart’s famous slow cooker Mac´n´cheese would make our girls so happy. The best bonus in my mind.

Navy turtle neck

by Sofia   -   in Shopping

I have been on a lookout for a good navy knit. Especially a turtle neck. I was browsing online as I had not seen anything in the shops. And then I saw this one. What did I love about it? Dark shade, properly high neck and extra long sleeves that can be worn cuffed or long. It’s just as good in real life. I have not used it for long so I don’t know how it will hold in long term. But shape & shade get good reviews from me. The brand I had not heard of and to be honest their own website did not speak to me in any special way but the knit itself is a great addition to my wardrobe.

I actually like this knit so much that if it stays nice in use & after being washed I could definitely add the light blue & white ones on my wishlist. But obviously I don’t need it all at once! Some shades were actually on sale now.

Have a great day!
