Mrs. Alice

Now there is no denying it. If you live in Finland you must be on the same page with me. The approaching Autumn can definitely be smelled in the air. And I for one could not be more excited. I can already see the pumpkins and cozy evenings at home drinking tea with a book. And hopefully, hopefully hosting friends as well. And for the tea and the hosting I have some good news. The fabulous Mrs. Alice who has a great collection for your table does ship to Finland and she takes care of the tax and duties from the UK. At least in my order when I did a try out for some fantastic new thermos. Let me share some favourites on my wishlist.


First of all the thermos I ordered in two fold as I like to have one for hot water and one for coffee. I will mark the coffee one at the bottom with a sharpie so they don´t get mixed. 


I have a mint julep cup and some similar silver cups but I would love to have a few more. I love them for little flower arrangements but I would also like them for instance for french fries for a fancier setting. 


I love a scalloped edge and these napkins would look so good with my light blue & white china. 


But the question is, do I love a scalloped edge and a bow even better?

Bonpoint F/W 21

by Sofia   -   in Random

Elokuuhan on ihan kesä kuukausi vielä, mutta ajatukset hiipivat asujen suhteen jo muutaman viikon päässä häämöttävään syksyyn. Ja jos pidetään tämä meidän välillämme niin sateisina aamuina myös kurpitsat ja kurpitsapiiras-mausteella hunnutettu aamukahvi ovat pieninä häivähdyksinä käyneet tämän syksyä rakastavan ajatuksissa. Siellä ne kuitenkin odottavat kun nautimme vielä tästä kesästä hetken!

I promise you I will write about other things than just children´s clothing. But if you are here you must know it´s a passion of mine and I can´t help but endure myself just a little. I was so positively surprised to see that a lot of the Bonpoint collection comes up to 14. Hurray! We bought some beautiful dresses for the girls this summer and some were size 12 and some 14. The 14 is a little big still, they will be able to wear it next year too. But size 12 is just right now and at the rate they are now growing I think it´s a safer choice for us. Especially in anything that has sleeves long legs as Bubble Gum has such long limbs almost everything is too short on her. Not that she will mind in a few years time. Anyhow, back to the clothes. I can´t share everything I loved at once so I will share them here and there and try to add some other subjects in between so those of you looking for other content will not pass out of boredom. So here goes..





First of all this knit is to die for and yes I would love it in my size too. It looks absolutely divine and so soft.

Let´s talk about clothes, because why not. Bonpoint got a new Artistic Director, Esther Loonen and the first collection of hers is the Fall Winter that has come out. I am very fond of it. As always some of the pieces I think can be found on shops like Zara but some are again very exciting. I will share some favourites later on but wanted to highlight this collaboration they did with La Botte Gardiane. Perhaps not my favourite pieces for my girls but worth a share never the less as I am sure this will be right up someone else´s alley. I could see them worn with white and denim. Simple styles and great leather details for accessories. Quite cool and very Parisian don´t you think? Also these are the kind of styles that look great on older children too.
