Finally, after a few months of hard work, I can now show you the beginning of something that with time I hope will become even bigger! My own brand House of Hennie, pieces all designed and handmade by me here in London. I am of course beyond excited to start this journey! See all the products on my webshop ( more coming up soon), read my story of why I started the brand and why I named it House of Hennie. You will find everything at HouseofHennie.com

Let me know your thought and leave a comment below!

Lots of love!

My favorite drink is water (ok coffee too) and I drink a lot of it. Because of my consumption of water I also tend to buy quite a lot of plastic water bottles when I’m on the go in the city, it does make me feel bad in many ways. First of all, we have perfectly good tap water in this country so it’s just bad to mother nature using and consuming all those plastic bottles and second, it’s a silly thing to spend your money on if you ask me.

But there is an end to this, I got the nicest water bottle now! Glacial is a Swedish company with a mission to reduce the consumption of plastic bottles (yay) and they make really nice and fashionable bottles. My one imitates one of my favorite materials, wood. From now on I carry this bottle with good conscience, and looking pretty stylish too!

I guess I’m not alone in my coming home from holiday feeling weird, slightly disorientated and lost. I’m so eager to back into routines ( I love routines) but end up mostly just staring at the wall not knowing where to start (hence the absent here on the blog ). This summer has been great in so many ways, I traveled a lot (Turkey, Sweden, Paris, Wales, and South of France ) which also led to a lot of thinking. Mostly about me as a person, my goals and my soul search in a way. It opened my eyes and creativity ( I guess that’s was travel do!?) and my mind feels a bit clearer.

For me my new years start now, I have so many plans ahead. First I’m planning a new shoot with Noordinarysuit (and more plans with the company in general), I’m taking silversmithing jewelry classes ( a dream I had forever), expect some fun collaborations on the blog and many more blog plans ahead (Please let me know if you wish for anything specific !), I’m expanding my personal styling business (book me HERE), and last but not least I’m still working for my beloved Acne Studios. Autumn 2017 let’s do this!!

Enough talking and let me share some snaps from South of France.

Coffee and straw bags. Life.

So one week ago I came back from the Green Man festival that takes place in national Park Brecon Beacons in Wales. Do I have to say that the surroundings were incredible? The main stage had a beautiful view of mountains creating this amazing backdrop when you listen to the bands. But there was rain, a lot of rain to be honest. Luckily I was prepared, I managed to get myself a rain coat and a pair of wellies the last minute before leaving. Thank god for that. The downside is that I really don’t have any interesting outfit post to show since I wore raincoat and wellies the entire weekend, but I have other amazing photos to share.

This is where I got my coffee from every morning, I really care about a good cup of coffee and this place delivered my morning macchiato.

Tired/happy me waking up.

The festival really had good food trucks in all sorts of styles and cuisine, and some of them really work with the home styling as well, I mean take a look this tea room bus!!

I can promise you I didn’t bring the rain. The moment I bought this raincoat I told my boyfriend that I’m gonna get so many comments from happy unsober people at the festival, and I sure did. “Can you make it stop now?” “Why did you bring it?” to only mention a few, all of them said with a smile on their face!

One morning we adventured outside the festival to discover the surroundings a bit, turns out decision well made when we found the ruins of this old castle. Majestic and simply beautiful.

That was that for Green Man, and the internet detox I mentioned in the title? Well, after coming home from the festival we didn’t have internet for one week, long story, less blogging updates for me but more reading and organizing at home. Not so bad after all, sometimes it’s good to go offline. More about that another time.

XOXO
