I bet you didn’t see this one coming! I mean, no flowers, no Christmas, but a motorbike? Have zombies or aliens taken over me?No,not really (maybe they did, but I don’t know it?). 

Anyway, I found this jewel in Geneva and really liked it, it did look more like a piece of art than just a machine. And I wouldn’t mind taking it for a ride. Or two.

Christmas Inspiration

Pinterest House

Can you believe it’s only two weeks to Christmas? Time flies indeed, and this year I made it a goal to enjoy the  Christmas time as much as possible. House decorated for First Advent? Check. Christmas scented candles? Check. Christmas playlist on repeat? Check. Swedish gingerbread? Check (thank you IKEA!). We still need to find glögg (Swedish mulled wine). While we’re still to find the wine, we have already stcoked raisins and almonds. Ready!

Even a Christmas lover like myself lacks sometimes inspiration so I have a Christmas board on Pinterest (of course) that I actually use a lot these days. You can find my Christmas board here.

And since it’s the second Sunday of Advent, I’m stepping up my game, and will also share some of my favorite Christmas songs. 

We start with Mariah Carey’s classic ”All I Want For Christmas Is You” that came out in 1994. Enjoy!
