Lot’s of festive fun ahead; Christmas pop-up events, there’s Christmas drinks and dinners, we’ll be doing a White Christmas shoot this weekend, the Little Scandinavian Advent Calendar is taking shape, we are working on lots of posts covering all you’ll need to know to create your very own, White Christmas. As part of sourcing inspiration I’ll be going to the mountain of North.

Norefjell, situated one hour outside Oslo, offers Winter Wonderland with great skiing, SPA and gorgeous food. We’ll be heading there next weekend and hopefully the ski lifts will be open. It’s snowing now, so fingers crossed.
