Fashion doesn’t have to be expensive, these are my favorites on the high-street right now!
Suede slides with studs on that makes me want to style them with a pair of jeans HERE, Pink and polaroid logo print, can’t imagine a better combo HERE, A perfect everyday city bag in suede HERE, I have this thing for big earrings lately ( or let’s say always), these gemstone ones I wouldn’t mind HERE
Let me start by telling a story before I talk about this brand. Twelve years ago I passed one year in London working as an Aupair for a family, I spent all my free time with my dear friend Zuzana who also she worked as an Aupair. We were close like sister that year and since she lived more central I ended spending every weekend at the family she worked for so I also got to know them quite well.
Just before this last Christmas I was looking for gifts in Liberty for some friends and I picked up and bought this Himalayan bath salt, the package was so nice and I just loved everything it stood for and of course the actual product in itself ( who doesn’t like natural products that makes your skin smooth and relaxed? ). A couple of months passed when I caught up with my friend Zuzana, who I hadn’t seen for a very long time. We talked about our life today, and our life twelve years ago, she mentioned that the family she used to work for had started this beauty brand and showed me a picture of their products. You might guess that it was exactly that brand I bought a couple of months back, maybe a coincidence but I like to believe that it was meant to be. I think their product have something spiritual in them that made me choose them from all the couple of hundred other products in the store.
Naturally, me and Zuzana saw this as a sign and went to visit Mauli Rituals lovely founders Anita and Bittu a few weeks ago and they are just as warm and welcoming they were twelve years ago. I love when you know something more about a brand, who the founders are, what they stand for and what inspired them to start this wellbeing beauty brand. A true inspiration!
I really speak from the heart when I say that this brand has something extra, it smells like heaven and contains so many good ingredients, and most important it makes you feel so good! The serum on the picture above made my skin softer than ever felt in my adult years, and that is quite a good achievement I must say.

When Londonswedes.com asked me to be part of their “Home at” series, where they interview various Swedes in London and photograph them in their home, I couldn’t say no. In the interview I talk about my jobs in fashion, what I would do if I didn’t work in fashion, the best things about London and many many more things you guys didn’t know about me.
Londonswedes is such a great community for us Swedes, you can find information on their site about anything from job offers, how Brexit affects us, apartments for rent and where you can find the best cinnamon bun in town ( Yes we swedes care about our cinnamon buns). Sometimes being a foreigner can be hard as you are used to your own countries rules, regulations and culture and it can be tricky to go about certain things, so it’s so good to have those kinds of sites!
Thank you Londonswedes for having me!

A few days ago I was styling the Spring/Summer collection for No Ordinary Suit, and here is a little teaser of what will be coming up on the shop soon. I can’t really explain how happy it makes me to see your vision become realized, it’s something magic when you see a result of a great teamwork. And it sure helps that Paddy, our photographer also is a master of filming and editing videos. This clip makes me want spring now!
And let’s talk about the collection! I love it all, I already put my hand on one piece already. Can you guess which one?
I know that my blog really hasn’t bloomed lately, but recently so many things have been happening work wise that my blog kind of has been caught in between. To sum it up there has been shoot prepping, interviews, new projects who needs time and in between that my blog. All fun stuff so I’m not complaining though!
Anyway, when browsing online for a shoot I did find some goodies I wanted to tip about.
- Pink printed shirt. The color pink I just can’t get enough of it and I’m loving the fact that it’s made of silk. Get it HERE
- I just love a printed tee, and especially the typo of this one. Get it HERE
- The perfect denim colored mom jeans. Get them HERE
- Probably the perfect heeled everyday boots. Anine sure knows how to create those everyday pieces! Get them HERE
Right now I’m prepping our seasonal shoot for No Ordinary Suit, I can’t wait since it’s always so much fun! Here is a video of our last shoot for AW16 that I styled. There is something special with a video isn’t it? You can see the movement in the clothes in a way you can’t with a still photo, I love it!

See you on Monday guys!
There is still a few goodies left in the shop, Go Go Go HERE!
Let’s talk about Primark, I don’t very often visit their store but I happened to be there the other whilst picking pieces for a shoot. I must say that this time I was happily surprised, there is some good stuff there (for a very good price!). Not only did I find good pieces for the shoot but I also stumbled upon those earrings on the picture above and for two pounds (!?). I really couldn’t resist them. Go to Primark folks!

Sorry for my radio silence lately, but I have been a busy bee with various projects, I will get better in blogging! I thought I at least will share some highlights of the week.
1. I’m drinking coffee, a lot of coffee. Last week when I had a cup I realized London really turned me into a lipstick girl. The evidence is on the coffee cup, first time this happens to me.
2. I’m going back to basic when it comes to dressing, a white shirt and jeans (and a gold belt of course ) makes me feel more fashion than ever. This was taken before meeting a client for a personal styling session.
3. Spring and summer collection has landed in store and I can’t wait for bare legs and floaty pieces. Currently very obsessed with the Swedish brand Rodebjer SS17 collection…
Enjoy your Sunday!
The other day I attended the Next press day for their summer collection who will land in stores the first week of March. As always Next manage to deliver, this time I was slightly more drawn to the shoe collection rather than the ready to wear. I think mostly due to the fact that the shoes were smashing and I can’t get enough of a good pair of shoe. But it may also be because I have recently been dressing quite basic and instead put the power in the styling by pairing the look with an interesting shoe!
Enough talking and let me walk you through my favorites.
Red suede stilettos with ruffles, I want, No sorry I need!!!
Burgundy suede and more ruffles. Yes!
Pink heeled mules. They got all things right.
Rock tee, I always need a good rock tee in my life. Always.
I wouldn’t say no to those wide legged white jeans on a summer day. Styled with one of the shoes above.
Last but not least, my favorite from Next home departure, a pink neon sign saying Hola. I don’t think anyone understands how badly I need this in my home, it is by far the coolest home decor I have seen in a while. Need!!
Can’t wait for the summer collection to hit the stores, until then check out more things from Next HERE.
Thanks for having me Next!
