Ever since I laid my eyes on this silk scarf by Hermès for the first time I’ve been sort of..what’s the word I’m looking for..OBSESSED. First of all: it’s huge. I mean you could cover your whole body with this thing. Second of all, this print in this colour combination is beautiful. It’s bohemian but still luxurious. Yes, I could go on forever. Still dreaming away…

SO, the news are out! A huge congrats to Elin and her soon husband to be, Karl Lindman on Totême! I guess you already read all about it but I actually had the opportunity to meet Elin for breakfast last week and take a closer look at the pieces and let me tell you, there are some serious it pieces for your vacation wardrobe here, ladies! They’ve put a lot of effort into choices of materials and great detailing. The collection will be released May 5th at toteme-nyc.com, net-a-porter and at The Line. Can’t wait!

I could stare at this picture for hours as a kid as my father had (and still have) the poster framed on the wall. Through the years I’ve been scared, intrigued and fascinated by this very painting. I guess one of the reasons is beacuse when looking at it you keep playing possible scenarios over and over in your head thinking about the story, the before and after this particular scene. I doesn’t matter how many times you’ve seen it, it really doesn’t.
Now, I know we’re a little of topic here but since I’ve been thinking a bit about defining moments I wanted to share something outside of fashion that have had an affect on my own visual expression. From the 29th of May The Modern Museum in Stockholm will hold an exhibition with his paintings and I’m hoping to see my favourite one! I’m taking dad to see it too.
During the weekends I make sure to take extra good care of my skin, especially since our office enviroment have quit a bad effect on my skin, I definitely need that extra boost (I’m really trying to drink a lot of water, get fresh air at lunch a having my facial mist ready at all times, maybe you guys have more suggestions of how to keep your skin in good shape despite of bad ventilation and hours spent in front of an computor? Holla!). So, this Saturday I actually went to the amazing spa at Grand Hotel in Stockholm, their steam sauna is the best and as usual I also did my Sunday beauty routine. For the body I use this super creamy gentle body exfoliant with the scent of Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle which I rinse off with the help of an exfoliating brush. Right now I prefer to put on the body oil from Björk & Berries after but I don’t always go for the same product to rehydrate, I could as easily go for the firming body lotion from Clarins or Crème pour le corps from Chanel.
For the face I use my true companion from Clarisonic, as seen above. I’m telling you, there’s a reason people can’t stop talking about this electronic exfoliating brush, twice a week does it for me, no more, no less. I combine it with the refreshing gel cleanser from the same brand or Chanel’s Mousse Douceur. After that I make sure to rehydrate my skin with Le Lift Crème fine. Now, I don’t wear this day cream everyday but after exfoliation I need a bit more intense moisture and this one does the work. I usually wear a bit lighter day cream for everyday but at nights I always wear a cold pressed Fair Trade Marula oil (totally obsessed). Now, I’m ready for Monday, how about you?
Found these pictures on my computer and realized I never shared anything from my New York trip earlier this year. In about two weeks I’m going back to do some work and I can’t wait! I really looking forward to (what’s hopefully going to be) spring in New York, doing some exciting work, going to some favourite restaurants of mine with my very best friends and staying at my favourite hotel. Like I said before, can’t wait!
Here a are som snaps from my last trip when I went more or less for vacation:
1. Majestic buildings in Soho. 2. The view from my room at lovely Soho Grand. Love that place 3. West Village. 4. A quick break from the post storm weather at the hotel. 6. Going out to dinner wearing jacket from Dagmar, knitted scarf from Hunkydory, jeans from Gina Tricot, shoes from Isabel Marant, bag from Chanel. 7. Rangers vs Flyers! Amazeballs. 8. At my hotel: love Bigelow Lavender & Peppermint shampoo. Need to bring this home with me next time.
