Fell in love with this lamp when it first came out but then we where just about to move so I wanted to wait and see if it would fit in our new home. Then when I visited IKEA last week this beauty was on sale, I needed to get it before they where completely out of IKEAs product line.
A month ago Beyonce and Jay-Z gave birth to their twins Sir & Rumi Carter, a boy and a girl.
Twining is Winning 🙌
Now is also Kim Kardashian and Kanye West expecting twins. (well of course they are)
If they only know the real work of having twins 💤 I worked as a Nanny for a American family and they had newborn twin girl’s, I helped during the day and then they also had a nanny for the night shift.. now I understand why 😅 It is hard work having twins and for me so far there have been little almost no sleep. I can imagine that Bay-Jay is not doing many night shifts and only needs to be there for the ‘easy’ parts. For me part of being a parent is to be present at all times, hard and easy but I would also love some extra hands during the days and to be able to run errands alone from time to time or go to sleep for more than two hours. I would love that night nanny sometimes to if I could afford it 😂
We had some amazing summer days in the beginning of the week and in our garden it was almost unbearable hot. Þóra was crying to go to the “sundlaug” but I was alone with the kids and cant take her when I also have the boys so I decided I needed to get a pool for her here at home. I took my little gang and we went to three shops before we found the right size pool, the things I do for her 😅 and that was nothing then I needed to blow up this thing and fill it 💪 we dont have any garden hose yet so I had to run with buckets of water from the bathroom out in the garden, it took me 30min and about 40 rounds of buckets before the water level was enough to play in… Shit this was exhausting! It was probably less work to just take her to the Sundlaug 😄
I bought the pool in Rumfatalagerinn for 3.990kr. Highly recommend to buy a electronic pump 😘
For me setting the table before that one special dinner is just as important as the food being served, a good dinner experience needs to look and taste good. I love table wear, I never seem to get tired of buying me new ones.
I visited the iittala store in Kringlan today and picked out the perfect dinner set. Smoked gray and clear glass mix 🙌
We enjoyed a beautiful evening grilling on our balcony with this perfect dinner wear ☀
Almost every bedroom in the new house had plastic carpet flooring. For me it was urgent to get new flooring in the children’s room, a floor that was quiet, but still able to take a lot of beating without showing signs of it. We heard that vinyl parket was the best answer to that need. The new types of vinyl parket are really pretty and feel like real wood floors when you walk on them.
In Murbuðin they have a great vinyl parket from the german brand Wineo for a fair price and they were really helpful to show me how to lay the parket. We were able to put it in ourselves which of course is really nice, both planning wise and it saves you the cost of having to pay someone to put it in. I am super happy with the outcome and now we are also considering putting in our store because it is so beautiful, and it really does hold up against just about anything.
We where able to lay the new Wineo floor on top of the old floor.
Then we just had the skirting left.
I am so happy with the look and the feel of this parket 👌
Here is a video to show how easy it is to lay it yourself.
