Hello again.. back from Berlin and back to blogging again... Do you remember I introduced you to our new sponsor and blog friend Soulsister the other week! I really love their combination of tough clothes, knitted items and basic pieces. They sell some of my favorite brands such as Humanoid and Studio Ruig... I recently bought a big black bag made by Studio Ruig and I am deeply in love with it!
For today's giveaway we are giving away a Humanoid shawl, size 100x200 and made out of 100% wool. Want to join this giveaway?

We are at Berlin at the moment with our group of Bloggers and enjoyed a great day in a cold and snowy Berlin where we visited the Fashion for home store for breakfast and did a cool styling challenge! Of which I will be showing some pictures as soon as we get them back from their photographer. Next was a visit to the Etsy headquarters and Fantastic Frank !
It's getting dark really early in Berlin and we enjoyed the afternoon shopping in Mitte exploring some of the cool shops and buying warm sweaters and stuff. Right now we are having a delicious dinner at the Supergrau apartment, where I fll in love with their black magazine rack. There is a white one as well! We ended the day with some bottles of wine in the Michel Berger Hotel .... just a perfect day! Hope you have a perfect weekend, see you back on Monday with a new giveaway !

Sukha Amsterdam Did you notice there is no colour at all beside all the beautiful shades of white, grey, a little black and naturals! Just how I like it... what also caught my eye are the cute paper garlands, did you made those paper cuttings as well when you were a kid? I really loved making them and I think I will give it another try!

Two weeks ago I had a fun evening with fellow bloggers Interiorator, April and May and Yvestown and Caroline, the winner of this former blogpost: Intratuin challenge. Dutch gardening center Intratuin invited us to their store in Zevenhuizen, where they have a huge Christmas show.
I visit the Intratuin Christmas show every year and have great memories of going to the shows with my kids when they were small... Each year I let them choose some ornaments for our big Christmas tree and for the little trees we set up in their rooms. Always ending our trip with hot chocolate in the little cafe.
Together with Caroline and a friend she brought with her I made a selection of ornaments, in greyish, shiny and matte copper for my own Christmas home. In combination with some black 'leather trees' and natural wood I will decorate my kitchen for Christmas. Here is a little movie made during our X-Mas shopping to get you in the mood!
