Welcome to my home – Interview at Londonswedes.com

londonswe

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!

Hot Drops Meets Gabriella Lundgren – Interview with me

hotdrops1

Tomorrow it's Christmas here in Sweden (We celebrate the 24:th here FYI) and I'm a busy bee helping out my mom with the Christmas food, decorating and wrapping gifts. But before I turn off my computer I thought I would give you something to read in between all the food and Santa Claus.

Hot Drops is a service that helps you find fashion matching your style easier, all you have to do is set up a profile and once you search for an item Hot Drops tracks down where you can get the item in your size and budget. A very clever way of saving time when shopping, so when they asked me if I wanted to answer some questions about my blog and style I couldn't say no. Here below is a little sneak peek of the interview.

Thank you again Hot Drops, for having me!

And also MERRY CHRISTMAS!

The Debrief Interview – The shot before that perfect Instagram shot

interview

When I got contacted from the magazine The Debrief if I wanted to participate in an interview about everything behind that perfect Instagram shot, I couldn't say no. I think it is so important to as much as you can get inspired by Instagram to understand, and in a way see in between the lines, of what lies behind that shot. It may look like a perfect picture but in most cases there is also a lot of work behind it, and not always a picture "on-the-go" so to say.

I love Instagram and I love putting my time and effort in to inspire all my followers in fashion, styling, deco and life in general. But as I mentioned in the interview it's also a way of showcasing your work and you want your work to look good, let's not forget that! It's all about taking Instagram for what it is. For me, it's a source of inspiration and I know that most people don't really live that perfect life that they might be showing, but it's ok because I know it and I'm there to get their goodies from their life in a way. Does it make sense?

Read the full interview here, and please leave a comment if you have any thoughts around this subject! I would love to hear it.

Get to know me – 25 Questions & Answers

profile

Today I'm gonna be busy running around in a studio styling a shoot for Noordinarysuit , So I thought since I have got some new followers lately I would do a little interview with myself in a way by responding this  formula with 25 questions I found online. Are you ready to get to know me a little bit better?? Let's go!

What is your middle name?

Hennisdotter, "Hennie" from my moms name and "dotter" from the word daughter in Swedish, so Hennies daughter if you translate.

What was your favorite subject at school?

Art and sewing classes (yes we actually have subjects like that in Sweden! ) of course!

What’s your favorite drink?

Coffee, all day every day.

What is your favorite song at the moment?

Arghh this one is a hard one, there are so many good songs out there. I always loved Cat Stevens/ Father and son, and I never get bored of it. I used to listen to a lot of music before, but I somehow lost it lately by constantly hearing music at work and living with a musician in the house so when I'm alone I enjoy the quiet moment I have. Need to find that love for it again.

What is your favorite food?

Everything Italian, pasta for life.

What is the last thing you bought?

A green sheepskin fur coat from Mango (London is really getting cold).

What is your favorite book of all time?

The Magus by John Fowles ( Blew my mind! ).

Favorite color? 

Black?

Do you have any pets?

We did have some mouse problems in the flat (welcome to London!) so we decided to name him Jerry (as in Tom and Jerry). Well I'm not sure you can really call it a pet though...

Favorite Perfume?

Dolce and Gabbana/ The One, Margiela/ Beach Walk and Clean/ Warm Cotton.

CHRISTMAS!! ( Can it be December soon?)

Are you married?

No, but I have a lovely boyfriend since 4 years.

Have you ever been out of the country, if so, how many times?

Well considering the fact I grew up partly in various countries in Africa due to my fathers work and have a mother who is a real globetrotter I have to say yes. I traveled since I was a kid hard to count how many times...

Do you speak any other language?

Yes, Swedish, English and French. And I understand Norwegian and Danish.

How many siblings do you have?

One, my older sister Evelina, she is the best!

What is your favorite shop?

Can not chose, to hard..but Noordinarysuit, Acne Studios and Liberty is where I shop the most.

Favorite Restaurant?

It obviously change according to country, I had a few in Paris but if I have to say in London I would recommend two local ones just next to our place The Havelock Tavern and The Bird In Hand ( Love British pub names).

When was the last time you cried?

Oh I'm a real cry baby, probably wasn't too long time ago...

Favorite Blog?

Ilovejeans, tessmontegomery, fashionmenow, Manrepeller, Envelope, aportablepackage to name a few ( I can honestly go on forever, I'm a real blog junkie)

Favorite Movie?

I actually don't know, I have obviously seen many good movies trough out the years but I really can't think of any movie good enough to be written down here. I did really love the movie Into the Wild..

Favorite TV show?

I have to say Sex and the City because I used to be obsessed with that show, nowadays House of Cards, first season of True Detective and Stranger Things of course.

PC or Mac?

Mac! Never going back to Pc.

What phone do you have?

Iphone 6s (?)

How tall are you?

Not very tall...1, 60 m I think, kind of stop measuring myself when I realized I stopped growing.

Can you cook?

I can, but I don't love it, to be honest. I don't hate it either but I'm definitely not a passionate chef. I kind of do it because I have to eat..if it makes sense.

That's all from me, Over and out!
