To celebrate their lovely new The Little White Company Autumn collection, we were invited to a private screening of Frozen, complete with drinks and snacks at one of London’s most special cinemas, the Electric Cinema in Notting Hill. With both film and bed linen collection drawing on inspiration from the Nordic countries, we were in for a treat!
In Sweden, the country which origin, the cinnamon roll is called a ‘kanelbulle’. The sweet pastry, filled with cinnamon, sugar and butter has in fact its own day! The official cinnamon bun is celebrated in Sweden, and worldwide on the 4th of October, as ‘kanelbullens dag’ And this is where you can enjoy your cinnamon bun in London!
The post Norwegian Traditional Costumes for children -the Bunad was suddenly trending on Little Scandinavian yesterday, which reminded me that I’ve lately seen some inspirational photographs on Pinterest, of children in Norwegian National costumes. Please note that this wouldn’t be complete without including the natives, the Sami. Here’s my absolute favourites!
Austrian fashion is perhaps even more traditional than Scandinavian fashion. Known for their beautiful traditional outfits, the Austrian trachten and also longstanding family business producing classic design, for children. It’s therefor with great interest we discover the Danish brand Ej Sikke Lej, with it’s typical Danish retro style, in the alps.
It’s interesting that Denmark with a population of only 5.6 million people is the home to so many wonderful children’s clothing and shoe brands. One of the less known, but nevertheless worth having a closer look at is ByKier, a brand focusing on kitting growing feet with stylish apparel. From the Baby’s very first steps ByKier offers trendy quality shoes up to size 38.

I know it’s only September, but the very first layer of fine, white, powdery snow is covering the mountaintops in Scandinavia. And I can’t help feeling childishly excited about the snow, longing for winter, longing for the first frost, outdoor fun, the hot drink to warm frozen hands and those long nights in front of the fireplace. This is why I love Winter!
