Always around this time of year that little niggling feeling of stress comes tapping at your shoulder. Where ever you go you are drowned in christmas ads, christmas shops, christmas tips and christmas spirit – yet there is always a small panic regarding what to buy. What would my mother like? Would my brother wear this tie? Are we going to give each other gifts this year? No matter if you are a real christmas worshipper I bet you recognize that feeling (and if not, well congratulations, please send me your book). So this year I’ve tried to start the christmas shopping a bit earlier and really taken time to sit down and think about what my friends and loved ones would actually appreciate. That is usually not something you find in the price tag or the brand. For me, the ultimate gift would also be environmentally friendly. Of course I will not write what I have bought here, in case someone I know would stumble across this page, but I can give you a clue in the pictures from yesterday’s christmas mingle…
Okay, it is pearl jewellery. And it is from Frogpearl. But I won’t tell you for whom I bought it.
July is slowly passing by and I try to hold on to the best days for as long as I can. Trying to make time go by just a little bit slower. These are some pictures from these best days spent chasing the sun while lying in the grass, eating pasta before dancing in a summer crowded Stockholm and taking walks all by myself thinking about yesterday, today and tomorrow.
Pattern put a silver lining to your daily life, especially the flowery one. It’s easy to fall into the habit of always wearing basic, unicolored clothes but now it’s time to widen our views. At least I am. Hereby I promise to wear more pattern.. at least for the summer.
My friend E wearing both pattern and pearls. Her dress is number one on my wish list.
Back in Stockholm! The day was spent with the best cure for jet lag ; sushi, sun and friends.
Kungträdgården. Stockholm is more beautiful than ever.
Afternoon at “Happy” on Strandvägen. My friend is wearing the “Playing for change” pearl bracelet. For each sold bracelet 50% is donated to the non profit organization Playing for Change that works for children and young people. A great initiative and a perfect gift.
