So excited to share my first christmas gift recommendation! That if something means it’s totally ok for me to go a little bananas this season, no? I love giving gifts, but only if I find something I know the receiver will love and appreciate. We all have stuff laying around we don’t really need or use, therefore I think gift shopping requires some planning and research. The earlier you switch on your gift shopping mindset the better.

These gorgeous WILD furs are very much up my alley. I’ve always loved the softness and luxurious feel and impression the material brings. Now when I’ve finally found a brand that offers the opportunity to wear a material that comes from our Finnish nature in an ethical way, I can exhale and enjoy wearing it with good conscious.

No matter how much I love snuggling up in the queen of coats (here) I have to admit I love to vary outerwear quite frequently. It just makes or breaks the entire outfit I think. A chunky scarf and slouchy beanie makes any coat look completely different than when pairing it with a fur collar for example. That way you don’t have to buy a new coat. Win-win for everyone. Especially my wardrobe space. And marriage ;).

Normally these knitted beanies cost 60 euros, but now Marita Huurinainen offers these beanies for 45 euros! Discount valid until christmas. Perfect christmas gift for anyone. High quality, ethical, Finnish design, beautiful and practical. I mean we all need to stay warm so why not do it in a stylish way?

My favorite is this red fur collar but for the beanies I love the grey one with a jumbo sized fur ball. Perfect finish to a wintery relaxed look on a day off. Shop online here or visit Marita Huurinainen Boutique, Galleria Esplanad 1.krs, Pohjoisesplanadi 29, Helsinki.

This year it has gotten out of hand. My christmas obsession. I wanted to bring in our christmas tree already in October and have been listening to christmas songs for longer than I dare to admit. Gingerbreads are frequently in the oven and I keep adding gift ideas to my notes on my phone. This time of year truly is magical. Especially with kids.

Today I got up early. We wanted to shoot before the streets filled up with people. Best time of the day. Especially when the weather is this beautiful. Now it’s time for more gingerbread cookies! Ta-ta!
