Merry Christmas & All Best Wishes

Hedvig Opshaug 24.12.2015I’m wearing a knit dress by Dagmar (also here), Hedda is wearing a dress by Bonpoint.

It’s Christmas and I hope you’re all surrounded by people you love whether you’re celebrating or not. Like every year I’m with my family in the North of Norway where I grew up, no other place is more Christmassy to me than there, and though we haven’t been able to call it a proper white Christmas so far, the magic just happened, and snow is finally falling.

Wishing you all out there a wonderful Merry Magic Christmas too wherever you are!!!

Kisses from me & Hedda

Dear Santa

In the world I was brought up in wish lists hardly existed, you were given what others thought you needed. Most of the time the joy was “almost equal” over a pair of home knitted socks as for books, games and sport equipment. Though I do remember the hard to hide disappointment at the age of 5, staring at my first watch, while my little sister unwrapped the coolest barbie in town, then feeling ashamed afterwards towards my dad’s best intentions.

In fact today I find wish lists quite helpful, and it has saved me more than once when gifting others, having had the person in mind I wanted to treat. So I’ve teamed up with global online retailer, who offers free global shipping until 18th of December, to curate my Christmas wish list of their high level stock ranging from clothing, accessories, vintage and homewear. You can never go wrong with bags, shoes, lingerie, designer knits, scented candles, cosmetic cases, sunglasses, jewellery, furniture and books, to that special someone, do you hear that dear Santa?
Louis Vuitton vintage cosmetic case, sunglasses by Chloe, socks by Marni, lingerie by La Perla.

And whilst you’re at it, in the Christmassy spirit I mean, why don’t you donate towards a good cause or charity organisations close to your heart. This year I’ve picked Children With Cancer UK, but you can find a long list of non-profitable global organisations here. May everyone be merry!!!

Last minute

One week to go before Christmas and when I woke up this morning the number of prepared gifts in my house was equal to none, same procedure as every year I’d say. So this whole day I devoted to Christmas shopping and though I had to practically fight my way through crowds of people in the streets of London, I got a little into that Christmas spirit which to me is pretty equal to stress, in a good way though. Anyway, stress or not, at the end I cooled down with a glass of champagne, caviar and oyster’s at Harrods, perfect after a shopping spree. Happy Saturday eve everyone!

Change of plans today, ended up hanging around Harrods and brunching there instead. The perfect place to get into Christmas spirit, the beautiful decorations and smells and the food hall is simply fantastic. If I wasn’t going back to Norway this Christmas I would have done all the grocery shopping there, delicatessen and temptations everywhere, that reminds me, I’m leaving in 2 days and have billions on things that need to be done and haven’t thought of packing yet. Will post more later today, now work!

Christmas Market

On Saturday I strolled around Sloane Square and visited the Market where they sold lovely cheeses, saucissons, organic jams and tons of other stuff, a whole bag of delicatessen followed me home that day. I love these weeks before Christmas despite I strongly dislike the darkness and cold and there’s nothing that reminds of Christmas in my own home except that the heater is running on max (to my parents if you read this, don’t worry, I’ll appreciate all that when I come home). As for now decorations and singing in the streets are the only reminder but oh so cozy.

Out of the door in a minute, dinner at a great French place in Covent Garden, ciao everyone.

Oxford Street

This is how it looked outside Selfridges on Oxford Street yesterday eve. Everyone who’s been to London this time of year knows how the Christmas atmosphere sneaks upon you on what ever you may feel about it. This year I think they have way overdone the decorations though, more tacky than spirit but outside Selfridges it was still “balanced”.
