Moving Mind





While I'm counting the days to Stockholm I've been having a few things on my mind that I would love to bring in my load.


Maybe this t-shirt is spot on how a country side girl (read me) feel after a while in the hectic city?
'Give Me Some Space' T-shirt from DEDICATED.

My wallet is falling apart. This affordable cutie would be the perfect replacement for my cash and cards.
'Karri' Wallet from MARIMEKKO.

I've been smelling on this candle everytime I've seen it in a store. Its scent has always mesmerized me, but though this I never got down to buying it. I love how scents have such strong association to people, places and memories so I'm thinking this would be a great moving in present to myself as it would forever symbolize this little adventure of mine.
Scented Candle 'Crips Champagne' from VOLUSPA.

Spring aka sneaker season is soon around the corner and right now I feel for a chunkier model on my feet.
'Air Force 1 Upstep' from NIKE.





Stockholm,
HERE I COME!



It's not often I write about personal stuff over here, but due to my excitement I just can't resist sharing these news with you – in a few weeks I'm moving to Stockholm!

Still can't believe it's actually happening, but truth is I've been having this dream on and off for quite some years now – to try out the city life and live all by myself for once. We all know how fast those years fly and as I just recently turned 28(!) I felt it was now or never. Can't wait to see what our beautiful capital has to offer. At the same time I have to admit, as the home-loving lady I am, it's actually a bit heavy-hearted to leave my peaceful Norrland, my home and all my loved ones, but I guess that's what we all need sometimes – to do what scares us the most and just throw ourselves out there, don't you think?

So, here's one look that I wore in London. Can't believe it's almost three moths ago? It's scary how time flies. A lot has been a going on lately and I just haven't had any inspiration nor time to be honest. Though I've prepared a few more posts from our stay in the UK, so check back in if you're curious! xx

Winter
SKIN SAVIOURS




Winter might seem like a fairytale to some, but one of the downsides is the dehydrating impact it has on everything from hair, skin and even the air around us. To avoid (or at least prevent) it from stealing too much of our moisture there are a few tricks (which I wrote about last winter) that can make you bear through without becoming too brittle. Though these can take you a long way there will also be days when your skin requires a more heavy duty artillery.

Here I've gathered three fantastic crack fighting crèmes that are on my wish list right now.


On My Mind




On the 1st of December we're going to a Christmas show/party and instead of a dress (which I've been wearing every single year = boring!) I feel for something less traditional this time. Yesterday I ordered these Vinyl Pants from MANGO and if they fit I might wear them. Patent can be a bit hard to style and some might even find this high shine fabric kinky. The secret to prevent this is to keep everything else simple and balance up with something more feminine and delicate.

Personally I have a soft spot for ruffles so this Crepe Top from J.CREW would be the perfect match.

Party means dancing so therefore I prefer a slightly lower heel. These Ankle Strap Sandals from NELLY are a real bargain as they are both classic and wallet friendly.

One can always dream, right? These Pearl Drop Earrings from MIZUKI would add just that little extra.

Now when winter is here for real we have to focus even more on hydrating our skin. Right now everyone is buzzing about the sheet mask, but as you know I'm very selective with ingredients I therefore haven't tried one yet. After some Googeling I luckily came across the brand 100% PURE which have three different ones I would love to try! Green Tea Water Bomb Mask from 100% PURE.

My hair heroes are running out so it's time to refill. Voluminous Shampoo and Conditioner Duo Gift Set from RAHUA.


Lana Ruffled Crepe top from J.CREW  –  Green Tea Water Bomb Mask from 100% PURE  –  'Sea of Beauty' Keshi Pearl Drop Earrings from MIZUKI  –  Voluminous Shampoo and Conditioner Gift Set from RAHUA  –  Vinyl Trousers from MANGO  –  Heel Sandal from NELLY.

Pussy Power



While Googling around for some pottery the other day I happened to come across this piece of art by the danish designer/ceramicist Per Rehfeldt. So beautiful and genius, don't you think? I predict it's a unique one-of-a-kind vase cause I can't seem to find it anywhere. Though I've sent him an email asking about it so cross your fingers he will get back to me. I just couldn't resist.
