Beating the odds

If you wonder why I don't write as many articles as I normally do, it is due to my new hobby and the summer slowly arriving.

Just Do It

Remember when I told you about my relationship with sports and how I don't want to be associated with them? Well, don't think for a second that the purchase I did today has anything to do with me changing my mind. I still dislike doing sports. It is in my gene pool.

Keeping it simple

Mango dress

Sometimes, the simplest outfits get totally forgotten because they seem to be too simple when you want to get properly dressed.

Midsummer in Sweden

A couple of weeks ago, I wrote an article about the National Day of Sweden and the general lack of interest for it. The Swedish Midsummer is another story.

Monday Zombie Monday

Monday Zombie Monday

Here you have a person that suffers from insomnia and premenstrual syndrome (PMS), also known as the worst combination ever. I don't know what went wrong, but there was something that kept me up all night. By all night I mean all night, even if the nights are quite short in Scandinavia during the summer. So the day started on zombie mode for me.

A designed lifestyle

A designed lifestyle

Today, I decided to write an article about the fabulous Spring/Summer 2013 edition of BON, a Swedish fashion and lifestyle magazine that I love. I have been looking at the stunning pictures, read the articles and then done it all over again. It is just such a beauty. The structure of the cover, the bright but yet pale colors of the print and the creative layout.

A small step outside my comfort zone

It is raining outside and any look I'll be trying to get will be ruined when I step outside. I decided to take a huge step outside my comfort zone. This is time for an experiment.

Collaboration cuteness

Ladies and ladies, let me introduce you to the cutest thing right after my kids and right before kittens. The prettiest shoes on the planet. A collaboration between Melissa and +Vivienne Westwood Anglomania.

Beyond simplicity

Beyond simplicity

Simplicity is what I think most of the time when I get dressed. I hardly ever go for clothes with patterns and strong colors. I admire all the people out there that are able to mix and match powerful colors and patterns.

Hair talk time

Lately, I have been thinking about changing my hairstyle. From blond to dark, from long to short. I have even considered cutting bangs again. I'm just so tired of ponytails and that my hair is only nice when it's newly washed.

Shopping ambivalence

Shopping ambivalence

Remember when I went to a sale at Elin Maria's boutique a couple of weeks ago? Those pants are a bargain from that sale. I love them so much! They are from Rodebjer. Totally awesome with heels. I wore them today with a blouse from +Åhléns' Wera and the black shoes from yesterday that I had found deep down my closet. At the sale, I found so many nice clothes, but nothing regarding the summer collection. I had a discussion with a friend and came to the conclusion that the previous season must have been so much better.

Julia goes shopping in the promised land

Julia in Tel Aviv

Freshly back from Israel, Julia, one of our associates, decided to share her shopping experience and some product testing in the promised land. This is how her tale will be remembered.

Skinny jeans Monday

Skinny jeans Monday

We are Monday and I realized that I suffer from a strange syndrome called "office narcolepsy". I get so sleepy when I sit down at my desk, that I feel like I'm 15 years old attending a history class, thinking about anything else than Napoleon's campaigns. This is not a joke. I am totally serious here! Last week, I actually fell asleep at my desk. Time for a change, as it seems I won't be smelling any vacation in the nearest future.

Totally addicted to pink

Pink nail polishes

It seems to me that it's rehab time. Yep, I've just found out when I checked my drawer that I'm addicted to pink nail polishes!

National Day of Sweden

National Day of Sweden

Today was the the National Day of Sweden (Sveriges nationaldag) and the graduation celebration for students. The city was packed with dressed up people and so was I.

Rodeo Drive: The WOW Factor

Hugo Boss Rodeo Drive

When I stood in the dressing room at Hugo Boss Rodeo Drive, the girl working there approached me and said: "If you don't WOW it, don't buy it. If you WOW it, buy it and you'll love it!".

Hippie-wear for the summer


You might have heard about people that get pets like cats and little cute rabbits for summer and then just leave them off in the woods when vacation is over? The same goes for the hippie outfit. Admit it. Oh how we love to pick out the V-jeans from deep down the closet, the embroidered blouses and tops, leather bracelets, feathers, the bright colors combined with naturals and wooden earrings...

Heavenly food and delicious sweets

Selection of food, drinks and sweets from the deli

Do you remember the old saying "don't shop when you are hungry because evil rabbits will hunt you down and..." Well, I don't. I was starving and I went to the local deli shop and bought these pretty, delicious and absolutely gorgeous little things. Oh my! Where to start?

Today's outfit: Terrasse Sunday

My Sunday was really wonderful. I have been spending it with my family and friends on our terrasse. I did some shopping to make it cosier. I wanted to make it feel warm and welcoming. I have been cooking for a while and after that I have been chilling on the terrasse's sofa.

Today's outfit: Relaxed weekend

Ooooooh Friday! Celebration time? Oh yes. Check out these silver loafers I bought myself today. I think I can wear them with everything and I bought them in fear of destroying the ones I bought last Friday. Remember? The pearly ones, moccasins? I just love them too much.
