Date night.

Magical date night on Saturday, so beautiful with all the Christmas lights around town. Champagne at Razzia before dinner, and then some more at Terasse, a perfect evening ❤image image image image image image image image image image image image image image image image image image image image

Hi friends! What a beautiful weekend we just had. The November weather here in Zurich has been amazing. Carl came back from New York on Friday (he has already left again, in Dublin this week) and we just had a quiet night at home, dinner and then some yoga for me. On Saturday we went to the yearly Swedish Christmas markets and then some shopping and sushi in the Old Town. It is so nice with all the Christmas decorations up! Carl and I went out for dinner on Saturday night and yesterday we celebrated my birthday but more pics from that later… Hope you’ve all had a good start to the week ❤

Date night.

Off to dinner with Carl now. Wearing my Alexander Wang for H&M dress for the first time…a bit different but I think I like it 🙂 Found a new pair of shoes from & Other Stories I bought in Stockholm this summer but never wore. Have a beautiful Saturday evening friends ❤image image image

Tonight at 6 pm they switched on all the Christmas lights in the city and there was a big “late night shopping” event in town with free champagne, roasted chestnuts and bands playing along Bahnhofstrasse. After dropping the boys off this morning I did some work from Sprüngli and then spent a few hours at my favourite Aveda salon with my lovely hairdresser Shkurte. Now that the boys are sleeping, time for some yoga and a hot bath. Have a lovely evening!

Hi friends! Hope you’ve had a beautiful day. We’ve had such lovely weather here in Zurich this week. Each morning after I walk the boys to school I walk through the park and sit down for a few minutes to meditate under a tree before going back home to write. Even though it takes a few more minutes before my work day starts it’s such a nice feeling and always puts me in a good mood.  I had two meetings this morning and then picked up the boys at 12. We had a picnic lunch in the park, then took the tram to the city to look at the Christmas decorations – and buy winter shoes for the boys. Tomorrow’s Thursday and I’m going to the hairdresser’s, yay! And only 2 more sleeps until Carl’s back from New York…

Early b’day drinks.

On Saturday afternoon 15 of my lovely Zurich girlfriends came over for some wine & chocolate. I always use my birthday as an excuse to get everyone together once a year and November is always a good month for a party! I feel so thankful to have these beautiful people in my life…

Hi friends, hope you all had a good start to the week. Carl left for New York on Sunday and is not back until Friday. I had some friends over for early birthday drinks on Saturday, so much fun! More pics from that in my next post, in the meantime, here are some pics from last week. We started the week with swimming as usual yesterday and I’m off to Kung Fu practice with the boys now…

November is one of my favourite months of the year. I love how it’s getting darker outside, the crisp air and that you get to wear a coat and a scarf when you go out! This week started as usual with swimming on Monday, Kung Fu practice yesterday and Wednesdays is “playdate afternoon”… The boys had a great time with their friend Trym today. Tomorrow it’s time for the Swedish school again and they’re practicing “Lucia songs”! Last night we went to a “lantern parade” at the school and after that I went to an author lecture. Carl is off to London in the morning but back again for the weekend. I’m having some girlfriends over for drinks on Saturday and then Carl is off to the US for a week on Sunday…

Sunday brunch.

November 9, 2014

Our good friends Rebecca & Daniel plus kids came over for brunch earlier. Another beautiful, sunny autumn day, it was magical to walk along the lake early this morning. Hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend ❤image image image image image image image image image image image image image

Italian.

Amazing Italian dinner at one of our favourites, Conti, last night. White truffle season…sooo good! Champagne cocktails at Kronenhalle before. Thank you M & G for a super-fun night xxximage image image image image image image image image image image
