Happy weekend!

My computer broke ( again… it’s so old) and it’s gone to be repaired ( hopefully).  I’m really not good at blogging from my phone so I just came by to wish you a lovely weekend! Come follow me on Instagram and I hope I get my laptop back asap.

Sunday best

by Sofia   -   in Random

Who else has been in leggings more often than not lately? Yours truly at least. I decided that if my roots are now growing out I might at least try to spice up my leggings and cashmere sweater outfits with a silk scarf tied in my hair. I have plenty of pretty scarfs to make me feel better! Also my lovely head bands from Gauhar Helsinki are now making me feel like I look presentable when I´m on some FaceTime calls with friends. You know you look like you made an effort even if the effort was to put something on your head. I know it´s perhaps frivolous but we need some fun and something girly to make ourselves feel better. I don´t know if you do, but I and my girls like it. They actually asked if we could all get dressed up for Friday night dinners and now we do. They even borrowed my high heels ( which I usually don´t let them do) and it was such an uplifting moment after a week in comfy casual.

Song Of The Skylark

by Sofia   -   in Random

I´m going to continue on my path of book recommendations. More coffee table books coming as well as some of my kids favourites. But first I wanted to share something very different. I think most of us “readers” have an author we really like who writes lighter literature. I know everyone has their favourite detective story writers ( Donna Leon is mine) and I presume it´s the same for romance novels. I bought my first Erica James book solely by it´s cover. My friend was going on a holiday in Como ( this is years ago) and she had bought the book and I saw the cover in the picture and it looked cute ( yes cute) and sounded like lovely light summer reading so I bought the book. I just liked the way she writes. Her writing is somehow soothing and light but I think the books are also well written. Romance novels that include lovely houses, beautiful scenery, silly but cute stories. There are English country sides with gardens, Aga burners in kitchens and old houses covered in rose vines. You can travel to Italy or Greece or back in time to the past.  You know I like Nancy Meyer´s movies. These books have the same kind of cute & lovely vibe.  If you are on a lookout for such reading at this time then check her out. I have read many of her books ( they are available on iBooks too) and for some reason I find them comforting. It´s not Henry James ( they just share a last name) but light & easy reading.
