My Week – Isabelle

I have one major rule. Never go to the hairdressers without putting on loads of make up.
The image of a soaked cat mixed with a pale Gollum is mostly what I see staring back to me in the hairdressers mirror. Make Up gives me at least some dignity back.
But of Course I forgot.

Both Jenny and me have each our own private blogs where we are, yeah maybe a bit more private.
But nowdays our focus is on DosFamily.
Then we have been thinking about that what we like most about other blogs
it must be just the right  mixture of design, humour and some peeking into someone elses life.
Or a personal touch, if you want.
Whats personal and whats private? I have no idea.
But let us just add it to Dos!

Della wanted sparkling nails. We just painted them and then I poured some glitter on top.
Worked just fine. I think I will do it as well.

I started up production for 12 new episodes of Fixa Rummet.
So I have to be in Malmö/south of Sweden alot. Without the family. It hurts.
I am a bit afraid of flying so I always tuck some photo’s of the family in my bra.
Next to my heart. I feels a lot safer then.

If you like us on Facebook you will not only see when we post on the blog
but we will also give tips from cool stuff we find on the net and some more personal snapshots.

Friday I’m in love.
We took the day off. Ate strawberries all morning, bought a new bike & some golden shoes for little miss. I hade the best day in a long time.


I am trying to decide which carpet to choose for our cottages living room. It’s going to be a wall to wall carpet since the floor is very draughty. I like the crazienes of the wood carpet (the one on the bottom) but the lila/blue in the middle on the right is more of a  classic beauty. I guess the fun part of having a cottage is to try out new stuff and be a bit balder in my choice. The colors in these photos are a bit off.
Which would you choose?

Some inspiration from the past week.
Japaneese beer from our work kick off. And a hiding place under Stockholm.

I want to build something with cones. And he is wearing my old jeans from the 70′.

Met some cool dudes this week as well.
Next season of Fixa rummet we are doing an episode where a girl wants to live in space.
ET lives there already – thats a good start!

Beppe my son, just started school.
Look what a great place.
I know it’s good for him but it still stings my heart a bit.
My little guy, in school. oooh.

Well actually Beppe is pretty big. Maybe not big as Tyson but still he is big kid.
We call him our little Fläskhaj (porkshark – sounds much better in Swedish).
Check out the Albert Watson exhibition at Fotografiska. Fantastico.

What do you want to see more of at DosFamily?

    Attans vad vackert med familjekortet under flygresan. Känns klockrent! Måste testa det nästa gång.

    kanske bara en dos blogg…så har man bara ett ställe istället för tre att visitera:)

    Ja, det tycker jag, speciellt om det är lättare för er. Det gör ju inget att Dos uppdateras flera gånger per dag ibland. Jag tittar alltid på era tre i ett sjok så för mig skulle det också underlätta(inte för det är nått jobbigt överhuvudtaget). Jag ser er ändå som någonsort klump, in a good way.;) Privat och personligt, alltid lika intressant att tänka på. Jag tror på personlig med ett uns privat, fast mest tror jag på att ha det på ett sätt som får en att må bra och ger mer energi än det tar.

    Jenny: Tack Sara! Jag tror det hade underlättat för oss med , med bara ett ställe. Tack och kram

    Totally agree on the make up at hairdressers! I think it’s something about the lighting there too. Even when i do wear make up it looks like half of it has disappeared!.

    Loving those glitter nails! Would like to get me some of those!!

    Som nya – båda 2! :D

    Alltid så många finurliga ideer och inspirationskällor. Man kan bara gilla att det personliga går igenom så fint i alla inlägg. Inspiration och hjärta. Ni är verkligen duktiga! Malmö är väl kul (dock jobbigt att längta familj)men du får försöka njuta vårsol.

    hej på er.
    Jag älskar alla tre bloggar så jag kommer att följa dem hur som!
    Jag tycker att vår Isabelleabstinens dessa två månader har känts tung så nu gillar vi att det blirhumor/privat blandat med jobb igen. Jag tror på att fortsätta i ert spår. Den balansen söker jag med- det är inte lätt. Ibland känner man för att vara personlig men ibland vill man hålla folk borta, man blir ju så utelämnad.
    Vill du komma på fika eller sova på en soffa vet du att den kreativa Ripafamiljen i Malmö välkomnar dig med vart hjärta!

    Eller bara fika på stan såklart!

    Kramar från Klara med familj

    Jenny svarar: Hej Klara och tack! Jag kanske också kan få komma förbi på visit? =)

    Hi,
    i am one of the silence readers…

    I like your sons name “Beppe”. What does it mean. How do you pronounce it? Or is it a short form?

    HAve a wonderfull sunday…
    Piro

      Hi Piro, well his name is just Beppe and you pronounce it just As you read it (sorry I’m not Good at phonetics). I guess most zweeds think its more of à nickname. It is à common nickname in Italy. ( like short for Guiseppe). Dont no the meaning if there is one.
      Have a Great day
