August: On my mind

Skärmavbild 2017-08-28 kl. 09.45.28Travel: Recently back from four lovely weeks in France and feel super spoiled not being done with the summer activities quite yet. Soon heading for Mallorca with my sister and mother to celebrate our mother´s 70th birthday & we are all beyond excited. Currently reading through all great tips of Sanna Fischer Nordström featured on her blog and all I wish is that we had more days to spend.

the vanessaShoes: These ”Vanessa” shoes in grey suede from Blankens have been sold out for a while but managed to get on the waiting list for next restock and therefore hopefully have these perfect Fall mini heels on my feet very soon.

Flower: I used to find Baby´s breath too romantic as an everyday flower but through the last years I´ve changed my mind and now use it quite often. On my kitchen table right now are leftovers from one of last week´s photoshoots with Baby´s breath mixed with Eucalyptus.

suitOutfit: Could this be the Fall where I´m becoming a suit person? I really hope so. Inspired by the Mango campaign video as well, think it´s a really nice one. You can see it here

gather & feastFood: How perfect is this? Every morning I wake up superhungry and one of the first places to visit for inspiration is amazing Gather & Feast on Instagram. This cheese platter by @emmahawkins & captured by @blossomdailycreative looks so good. Weekend goals.

dialoguesBook: Finally bought ”Dialogues” by Frama in cooperation with Our Food Stories the other day and I can really recommend it. Not only inspirational in terms of beautiful pictures and settings but also filled with some really nice recipes and conversations with interesting creatives.

cottonmadeSustainable pick: This month´s choice is my friend Maria Soxbo of blog Husligheter´s cooperation with Cottonmade. Beautiful towels in different colors, here in Krita that goes straight on my wishlist. All made by eco cotton and with a GOTS certification. Well done, Maria! Looks great.

Music: Not knowing anything else about this band than that this one track is one of the most beautiful songs I´ve ever heard and it´s been on repeat all summer long. Bell X1 with ”The Upswing”. Go on Spotify as well to listen without the video….

March: On my mind

Can´t believe how quickly this month has passed by…Only made it through half of my to do -list, both at home at at work. Hopefully April will bring more of  Spring warmth and feelings. But before that, let´s go with the monthly list for March:

travel marchTravel: This month I was asked by my husband to block a weekend in April as he has planned a surprise trip. I´m probably one of the most curios people in the world so I´m trying to get him to reveal where we are going but he is super stubborn about it being a surprise so I will have to wait patiently. In the meantime me and my sister booked a trip for our mother and us as she just turned 70, so Mallorca – see you in September!

shoes marchShoes: Not only do I long for warmer days with lots of fresh fruit but apparently I have the need for dito on my feet too. These cuties are new in my wardrobe (that I have finally cleaned out and organized, wihooo!!)

Pic via. 

flower marchFlower: My allergy is on a high at the moment so I´ll take that as proof Spring and more colours in nature are to come. Finally! Our magnolia tree just had one or two flowers when we moved in ten years ago but now it´s happily exploding every Spring and I can´t wait to see how many flowers this year will bring.

outfit marchOutfit: Not only do I crave that bike but that outfit looks just perfect to start of Spring with too.

Pic via. 

bedroom marchBedroom: Wouldn’t mind to meet April in a bedroom like this with open windows and no fuzz.

Pic via. 

office marchOffice: That floor, big windows, Essay table by Cecilie Manz and Series 7 chair by Arne Jacobsen from Fritz Hansen – yes please.

words marchWords: Simple beauty.

food marchFood: How lovely do these look? Found these amazing coconut acai bowls over at  Design Love Fest. Wish all meals could look this pretty.

Pic by. 

series marchSeries: No surprise that just the scenery of this serie keeps me hooked but the cast and plot is so good too. Reese Witherspoon, Nicole Kidman, Shailene Woodley, Laura Dern and Swedish Alexander Skarsgård who is actually doing a really great job here. If you haven´t already seen it, perfect for this weekend!

TheSustainableSociety-loggaSustainable pick: My friend Maria Soxbo of interior blog Husligheter has always a million exciting projects going on and this one is no exception. Today she together with 11 other bloggers are launching initiative ”The Sustainable Society”. Together these blogs will pick one subject per month to write about within the subject of sustainability. Love it!! Really looking forward to follow, learn more and see different angles of the same theme.

bloodjungle-39515156--1024x1024Music: Track ”Hands” & ”Air is free” have been recurring tunes in my head since the release in February. This weekend I´ll give the whole album a good listen to see if it all has the same effect.

Pic via and more listening here. 

February: On my mind

I´ve been thinking about doing one of these of my own as I´m always inspired by others doing the same. I was also inspired and reminded when reading a post about loving listings by Sanna Fisher Nordström (big thanks for mentioning by the way!).

Original monthly list starter here in Sweden as far as I know was Johanna Bradford with her monthly listings encouraging other bloggers to do the same and there has been many great followers in for example Krickelin, Seventeen Doors and Husligheter to name few.

So here is my attempt and naming it ”On my mind” instead of list as I got caught in not being able to decide if it should be ”February list”, ”February listings”, ”List of February” or something else. Please feel free to fill in if you have a suggestion for a good name. All categories inspired by the bloggers mentioned above. Ok – February, here we go!

In Vail, CO

Travel: I can´t say that going to the sun is not high on my wishlist at the moment too but before that I´m gonna enjoy some proper snow and will be heading up north already next week. Equally excited about hitting the slopes as enjoying that hard-to-beat-feeling of super tired legs and sleepiness with a cup of hot in front of a fireplace afterwards.

Shoes: They are actually already in my closet and now I´m just waiting for the streets to clear up so that they can brighten my day.

ranun 2

Flower: Ranunculus – I buy them for work and I buy them for our home. In different colors, on their own or combined with greens. Every year it hits me how beautiful I think they are.

outfitOutfit: I look far from this casually cool on a daily basis but that outfit would be perfect to match up my oh so pale face.

Pic via.

sovrumBedroom: A perfect bedroom. Calm colors and no fuzz. I´m far from done with ours but new beds are in, the old headboard is out and hopefully soon we will get to what I´m dreaming of (without repainting the walls that would make the biggest change but also is a little bit too much work at the moment)

Pic via.

kontorOffice: This office has been in my inspiration files for ever. Mostly because I love the idea of a duo work station at home for me and my husband. Finally (!!) we are getting there and within a few weeks we can sit opposite each other and work. We do work a lot in the evenings when the kids have gone to sleep so why not make it enjoyable? The room does not look anything like in this picture as our station will be in the basement but at least a 100% improvement from banana position with lap top in knee on the couch.

Pic via.

wordsWords: I´ve been so so tired for the last couple of months without almost any daylight and the work load has been massive, not a perfect combination. But it´s still been a lot of fun and not giving up gives energy too. Writing this I´m hearing the birds chatting outside and I´m sure they are talking about Spring and that it is almost around the corner. Hallelujah to that!

Pic via.

zucchiniFood: I might even start looking like a zucchini soon. I eat it every day at the moment. This recipe is a favorite. 

modekokbokenBook: It´s not new but I use it in my styling all the time as I love the cover.  Fashion and food combined in a great wrapping. You can buy it here.

skaphaSustainable pick: I love the products made by Tina Bergdahl of Skapha. I´ve got two of her cushions in my sofa and a basket functioning as a flower pot (you can spot it here in the window). All made in recycled materials.

half moon runMusic: I first got the tip of Half Moon Run from a friend in the car listening to music on our way to his wedding in this beautiful spot in Denmark. Because of that special moment sitting in the car just listening to great songs while traveling the incredible green summer landscape just hours before the wedding – this song will always be special to me. The band played in Stockholm on my birthday just a few days ago and even if we missed it I still was reminded of listening to them again. Half Moon Run with one of my favorite songs, Full Circle. 

Flea market

flea 1 flea 2 flea 4Went to the flea market at Melrose & Fairfax this morning and I just love to stroll around looking at things. Found some really nice stuff and bought 2 prints that I just fell in love with and of course they are both coming back with us to Sweden. You can see both prints and a little Flipagram recap of 2014 on my Instagram.

New in

 

When in L.A, I was invited (thank you!) to Anine Bing´s showroom and I left with such great things. If you like me go for basic clothing in white, black, grey and sometimes the crazy colour brown,  with nice fabrics and details, this is the place to shop. I am so in love with my new leather jacket, it´s the softest thing I´ve ever worn. Highly recommend a visit, you won´t be disappointed.
