Walking Closet Organization Systems

I love organizing and keeping things in the right place. Our home started getting tighter and tighter and I can't wait when we will finally move to a bigger space once we find our dream home. So I can organize in better storage space. 

One of my favorite things to keep tidy is the closet!! and I follow some small steps to keep things in order even when I ran out of space. Closet Organization Systems come handy in this simple tips and images. If you don't have the closet of your dreams yet and want to start one? find full panning closet guide here. Or check out my Pinterest board Wardrobe 101 to get inspired, enjoy it..  :-)

A Sunny January Day In Sidsjön

Today we had one of them rare sunny January days in Västernorrlands. One really knows the sun worth when moves to live in winter dark lands. I used to hate sunny weather back in the days when I was in North Africa. 

We went to a frozen lake called Sidsjön and enjoyed ice skating around the lake. I am an ice skating beginner, so it was great for me to use the baby stroller as a support. Both walking, skiing and ice skating are a great activity to do here once in a while when we get lucky with such weather. 

Julia was enjoying the ride around as much as we did. And at the end she toke a good nap, thanks to the outdoors fresh air. I took some moment to capture these lovely photos and save them in our parenthood / family diary.

Back From Malaga

Finally got some time to write an update. We traveled to Malaga and came back yesterday night. It was such an amazing weather! sunshine, blue sky and 18c. We enjoyed the Spanish cuisine on our first evening at El Meson de Cervantes. It was a family friendly place and perfect for baby strollers as most Spanish restaurant has too little space. 

Next day I tried to see as much as I can of Malaga city especially the old part. I took the photos below and some live Instagram videos. I made sure to enjoy the Mediterranean sea fresh fish because I miss it so much while living in Sweden, like sardines and octopus. Julia was very happy with the weather and she loved watching pets and pigeons everywhere while siting in her strollers as I walked around the narrow streets of old malaga. 

Lots of things felt like Casablanca actually. I was surprised to see too many smilier things... even the peoples faces. So I didn't feel strange at all.  I hope you guys enjoy this photos of Malaga from my lens.

Lazy Sunday

Finally the temperature raised back up again to 0 yesterday and I managed to go outside and get some stuff done. I visited the city mall where lots of sale is going on since Christmas day. After a long day out I came back home exhausted but still had tasks waiting for me... I completed all the things that had to be done home and I decided that Sunday is going to be my lazy day of the week. 

Actually a Mom's day can't be really lazy because the baby "To Dos" are a must and no way to skip them especially when my hubby is working abroad. I try to convince myself that I will somehow have an easy relaxing day like the old times when I used to work. 

During Julia's first nap around 9 , I made myself a good hot chocolate cup. And I drank it while reading a book and listening to some relaxing music playing on the background with the Live fireplace video on TV. Chatted with couple of old friends over the phone. And at meal times I decided I wont cook today nor order food. So I micro heated some frozen pizza and pie leftovers that were previously home cooked. 

Each time Julia had a nap or was busy playing, of course after she was changed and fed, I could steal some moment to myself to get back and enjoy my laziness while still watching over her. So basically I shortened my lazy Sunday in couple of moments here and there to make myself feel that I actually can make some time for myself rather than just taking care of things everyday.

Anniversary Event Outfit

Back with another personal style post from my closet. Our "first date" 5th anniversary is just around the corner and I thought it would be a perfect occasion to finally wear this dress. 

I bought this dress since summer 2015 to attend my hubby's relative wedding. When I got pregnant and gained couple of kilos I couldn't wear it anymore, not even last year because there was no special occasions nor I was back exactly in my previous shape. 

Lucky we are going to spend the anniversary in less heavy winter weather than ours, which will allow me to enjoy wearing my favorite pieces again. As you guys know that dressing up for heavy Scandinavian winter makes one only focus about being warm and comfortable, I had to learn this the hard way when I first moved here. After all I am not a fan of large coats and big boots, so every winter skipping trip I take it as a chance to enjoy dressing up light and beautiful.

Our first date was in Istanbul - Turkey  Cafe House, and than enjoyed a 360 c istanbul view from 360 Istnabul restaurant / bar . Thats where it all started :-)
