Was not sure what to post today, I think I need to sit down and write a list of what to post when. However this morning I was sent this from a customer. A little photo collage of Spektakulär at her home!
WOW!!!!! And I mean wow! What a wonderful treat to receive and a fantastic reminder that we do in fact inspire to create homely homes.
Thank you Sandra! This really made my day!! I love those Pappelina rug colours, the sea grass and storm are personal favourites!
If you have designs from Spektakulär, feel free to share them with us! It truly makes us happy and is a huge motivation to stay strong and keep going.
Have a wonderful day! We are chilling, think a little bit of the “fun” home schooling will take place today such a designing a playpark and write a short story! Otherwise not a lot, had waffles for brunch and I shall make more coffee and sit down with a book. I will walk over to the shop later to check post and make sure it is all ok and to get my 10000 steps for #walkalloveercancer.
I am so super excited to welcome a fantastic new brand to Spektakulär!
This Danish family owned business was established in 2017. AYAIDA is the combination of the names of their daughters Aya and Ida, and the overall thought behind AYAIDA is to think about the next generation and consider every usage we do. They combine design, functionality and elegance with a mission – to relieve the planet from the exaggerated amount of plastic. And most of all they a making a difference for the people who are not having the same possibilities as we have here in Europe. The materials used in their products are carefully chosen to keep their customers healthy and to last for the longest time. They aim to inspire and minimise the “use and throw out” culture that we live in today.
These beautiful drinking bottles keep your beverages perfectly hot for 12 hours and cold for 24! They are 100% free from BPA, Phthalates and toxins. The bottles comes in three sizes, 500 ml, 750 ml and 1 L. And a super clever sports lid can be purchased separately.
I was given one a month ago and I can not describe how pleased I am. It is comfortable to drink from, stylish, leak proof and my water is always cold. My friend who gave it to me suggested to use it for a bottle of cold wine…I think that is a great idea and I will definitely try it out in near future!!! Plus I am about to use mine for hot Ribena as I am about to drag my family to Pentlands for a long family walk to get my steps up. When I first got it there was a few scratch marks and I once took it out of my bag covered in colour pens (!!!) but it came right off and it still looks new which I am very impressed by!
So what are you waiting for? Time to invest in a proper bottle, use less plastic and look stylish! Plus did you know AYAIDA donate 100 L of clean water for every sold AYAIDA products. You do good for you, children in need and for our beautiful planet! I would say this is a fantastic gift to give!
UNICEF expects that 1000 children are dying every day due to the lack of clean water. AYAIDA think EVERY child has the right to be healthy and to be safe which is what UNICEF also is fighting for. AYAIDA is extremely proud to be a business partner with UNICEF! You can read more here on AYAIDAs website.
How are you, how was your summer? I really hope it was enjoyable. Myself and the girls headed home to Sweden for five weeks. Wow you say, that must have been such a fab holiday! Weeelllllll I am not sure I would call it a relaxing holiday!! Yes we go home, yes it is wonderful to speak my own language (basically the only thing I know in Sweden these days) and it is great to go home to be with my family. As you might know I am one of many many siblings and it is always great to see them all. One of my younger brothers had his first baby (sadly after we came back to the UK) which is so lovely! It is however hard to relax when you live in someone else’s home and you constantly worry you are in the way so no, it is not really relaxing. Returning back to our own flat and my own bed was actually quite nice. However this place, this place, sitting in the sand and just breathing that certainly makes me homesick! It is a small beach in a little village outside Alingsås. It is comfortable and it is easy for me to be in the water with one child that according to herself is an excellent swimmer (not true) and a non swimmer. My happy place! If I ever won the lottery, I would buy a house here!
Slowly we are returning to our normal everyday routine life with school, activites, work and all that stuff. For some it is super boring (missing the lazy days by the beach perhaps) and for some it is needed. For me it is needed, I personally need structure and planning to stay happy and most of all I need goals. Small goals, something to look forward to. And do I have something for us all to look forward too!
We are entering the month of September, normally a stunning month, still warm, a hint of crisp in the air and some trees will start to change colours. Autumn is my favorite season and not only that, September is also Spektakulärs Birthday Month. NINE we will be this September! Blimey!!!
Nine years of Scandinavian designs here at Holy Corner! I am not going to lie it is a huge mix of emotions and it has been full of challenges. But mostly happiness! We are so lucky to be part of this community and we do like to give something back. So during September we like to treat you a little bit extra! So what do you think? What shall we do? Well let us kick it off with a FIKA FRIDAY next Friday the 6th. Coffee and Cake on us! Pop in anytime between 10-12 (or until it runs out). Bring some friends, browse the shop and treat yourself or someone loved. You know we do love gift wrapping!
Last year we had a fab day, we had birthday prizes and we were also up in our ears with Swedish buns from Soderberg . It was a great day and of course I would love to recreate the same wonderful atmosphere this year if not even better! So go on! Let me know what you like to see in the shop this September, what would make you join the party?
