Clean October

October to me means starting fresh. As the days get darker you get more tired and the count for endless colds is just about to start. So from now (started already on Monday but if you would like to join what day is better than the first day of the month?):

Exercise minimum three times/week, no alcohol, no sugar, no shopping, as much clean eating as possible, spend as much time as I possibly can outside and to me probably most importantly – making sure to go to bed earlier. Set your own goals or maybe join mine. Welcome October! xx

Ps. Why I´m writing this is because I´m the worst at keeping longer promises like this, I tend to go all in during the first two weeks and then slowly go back to old habits…But I´m hoping that if I put this down in words with you as witnesses I´ll hopefully feel even more motivated Ds.


Vintage shop on wheels

caravan 1 caravan 2 caravan 3 caravan 4 caravan 5 caravan 6 caravan 7 caravan 8I´ve seen this caravan before but don´t think I ever posted anything on it. I´ve just come back from a few days of holiday at Mallorca so maybe I´m enjoying these colors and the sunny feel to it a little bit extra. But I also really like the idea of the ‘Travelling Wares’ caravan travelling shop  – housed in a 1956 caravan called Frankie, hosted by stylist and photographer Kara Rosenlund. Vintage finds for sale specialising in utilitarian pieces for the home, all through this magic piece on wheels.

More about Kara Rosenlund here and you can also see more pics and story through Remodelista and The Design Files. 

Fresh start

new times 1 new times 2 new times 3As for most people the new year comes with new plans, ideas, hopes and goals. I´m really good at breaking all promises that has to do with taking care of myself much better but I truly hope (and once again believe) that this time it will actually work. Good and healthy food, exercise, balance between work and family time and the ambition of growing both professionally and as a person. Guessing all of these are the most common New Year´s resolutions of all and then we can add more specific goals within all of these things. Still haven´t slept many hours since we got back form LA so the extra time certainly helps with at least having more time to get things going in the house. Before 8 today all Christmas decorations where gone, one not so tasty but super green smoothy in stomach, second washing machine rolling and first work emails sent off. Meanwhile getting two kids to school. But there is so much more left to do & I really hope to get time to visit Formex (Swedish interior fair) that is starting today – so here we go. To 2015 being a very productive year!
