It’s the 1st Sunday in Advent; we’ve enjoyed visiting Christmas markets, seeing the Christmas lights being lid in our town centre as well as the first Advent Candle at home. 48 small presents have been wrapped up, and we are just about to launch the Little Scandinavian Advent Calendar with 24 amazing presents for you!
Imagine a talented children’s fashion designer collaborating with a highly talented photographer, wouldn’t only happen to be siblings, but also grandchildren of one of Denmark’s biggest names in furniture design!? I’ll tell you what happens; it’s a magical Nordic Winter fairytale!
Abercrombie & Fitch hosted an event to launch the Abercrombie Kids Savile Row store in aid of Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital Children’s Charity. We were invited and wouldn’t miss the opportunity to see one of Little A’s favourite brands as well as support the brilliant work of the London based Great Ormond Street, a dedicated children’s hospital.
Winter Wonderland might be just a bit closer than what you think it is. Norefjell is a mountain area and ski resort, a beautiful piece of Scandinavia and one of its kind, situated just an hour outside the Norwegian capital. Family friendly, or perfect as a romantic getaway. Whatever you choose you are sure to experience a something rather special.

Scandinavian Christmas cookies are lovingly baked together with family and friends in the run up to Christmas. In Norway you’ll be offered ‘Sirupssnipper’ and ‘Serinakaker’. In Sweden there’s sweet treats in the shape of ‘Rönnskärsformar’ og ‘Sätoftakakor’, where as Denmark proudly presents their ‘Klejner’ and ‘Brunkager’.
Having spent the weekend in Winter Wonderland I couldn’t help feeling a little nostalgic and inspired. The new Christmas Collection of gorgeous children’s clothing by MeMini might just be what you were looking for, if you too are planning a Nordic Christmas.
