THE KAHLER FUGATO CERAMIC SPREAKER

fugato_white_danish_ceramic_speaker

I love the simplistic and great design of these Kähler speakers, it has the perfect natural and Nordic look. Fugato is both beautiful and simple and can easily be integrated into any home with the roundness of the ceramic and the distinctive fabric. It is easy to use and can be connected to your computer, tablet or mobile anywhere in your house whether that’s the kitchen, bedroom or living room.

SERVING YOUR MIDSUMMER DRINKS

flatlay_drink_aperol_spritz_scandinavian

This weekend is the Midsummer celebrations which is quite a big deal in Scandinavia because it marks the beginning of the summer and finally brighter days! If you want to learn more about how the Swedes celebrate it then check out this Short and pretty guide to celebrating midsummer, Swedish style by my fellow Scandi blogger My Scandinavian Home.

As midsummer is all about floral crowns, beautiful cocktails and fun I though I would share this fun and creative way of serving your drinks. I love the idea of the MyFlavour water carafe by Eva Solo. It has a skewer in the lid, which means that you can easily add all kinds of aromas to your drink or water if you are not serving an alcoholic drink. It is so clever and also very decorative, and the good thing is that the skewer makes it easy to remove the fruit and greenery from the carafe when you are done using it. I think I need to get one of these, would be so handy when making Aperol Spritz, which is basically my favourite summer drink!

Each of the products has been given its own tone of voice, for instance with an eraser with the text ‘never forever’, felt pens with the title ‘make your marks’ or notebooks saying ‘fill in the blanks’ to light up your everyday life. The assortment of colors, patterns and materials is said to encourage creativity, play and to create the daily story that suits your individual personality.

“For a long time we have wanted to add a new category of small design products to our existing collection of designs. We get a lot of inspiration from fashion at Normann Copenhagen, so it was natural for us to look for a collaborator in the world of fashion.” – Britt Bonnesen (Normann Copenhagen’s brand manager)

THINGS I LOVE // NUORI LIP TREAT

scandinavian-product_nuori-branding

💛 I’m currently loving this lip treat from Nuori, both the beautiful branding & the product inside.

Branding: So nice, fresh and minimalistic with the perfect pop of colour. The premium designed protective packaging has a simplistic expression and is easy to open. It cleverly has a start-using-by date stamped on the front of the outer packaging and the expiry date stamped on the top of the tube as a reminder. I really feel like the packaging design reflects the freshness of the product.

Product: A lovely blend of natural hydrating wonders; sweet almond & apricot oils along with shea, avocado, and cocoa butter. It really works wonders for dry lips, my lips are now so smooth and nourished after only using it for about a week. Thumbs up!

“NUORI, a new Scandinavian beauty brand, is reinventing how we view freshness in the beauty industry” – The Telegraph
