Danish design icon for children

This rocking horse from danish designer Kay Bojesen is my boys favorite toy. Carl-Gustav is soon four years old and likes to play cowboy. Soon will brother Ferdinand also discover the fun riding horse in our living room.
The rocking horse from Kay Bojesen will always have its permanent place in our living room because of it´s beautiful design.
Price € 553

Kay Bojesen (1886-1958) graduated as a silver smith in 1910 after completing his apprenticeship at Georg Jensen. In the 1930s he explored his passion for wood. 
Creating animals that matched his belief that a product should be 'round and soft and feel good in your hand". The lines in a design should "smile". The Rocking Horse has been in the Bojesen family since 1936. Kay Bojesen’s intention was never to create an exact replica of any animal. It is an exact replica created from Kay Bojesen’s original drawings. Kay Bojesen has created treasured and beloved characters that appeal to the child within us

Kay Bojesens design appeal to the child within us all.

Eyelashes as Bambi....

Do you, like me and 1 trillion other woman, not have powerful and long eyelashes with volume, then read this.

I was introduced to a product called M2 lashes by my very good friend Katrin. I bought the M2 lashes  last time I visited her in Hamburg. It´s a serum you apply to the roots of the lashes one time each day.....and... hocus pocus....12 weeks after you got the most amazing eyelashes. 
The activating serum contains the key ingredient complex MDN*.  It was specially adapted for cosmetic applications from ophthalmology and for several years now has been used in a comparable form in the USA with great success. This modified and carefully dosed active ingredient stimulates the roots of the lashes, bringing about a longer growth phase while also creating fuller, stronger lashes.  

The price is 120 €, and you may think it´s very expensive,  but compare with eyelash extensions. A eyelash attaching costs around 160 €  and every 2-3 week you need a filling to the price around 60 €.  It´s not you own natural eyelashes, you spend a lot more money and time, and you have to take into account everything that you can´t do or must be cautious with when you have eyelash attaching. 

So I think it speaks for itself what i choose !

I wish I had a pair of L.G.R

My old pair of lovely persol sunglasses bought in Florence is broken, so I went to the optician to see if he by any chance could bring them "back to life". 

But then........ I saw and fell in love with the most beautiful sunglasses from the company L.G.R.

The L.G.R sunglasses are handmade. Each frame is a development by one individual who has skillfully built it from start to finish. My favorite model is the Siwa Havana.

The story about L.G.R begins with
Luca Gnecchi Ruscone. He was born in Rome, Italy to an Italian family with strong roots to Africa. He spent most of his childhood growing up between both worlds. His father lives in Kenya and his mother was born in Eritrea, where Luca's grandfather opened an optical store in the 1930's with imported frames from Italy.

The rediscovery of these classically designed glasses inspired Luca to begin his own line of eyewear.

Wauww... just fantastic
