October: On my mind

I know we have already entered November so it´s a little bit late but could´t resist starting the weekend with a list for October anyway. Happy weekend everybody!

ett hemTravel: Right now I have absolutely no desire to go abroad but would´t at all mind a staycation here in Stockholm. Just me and my love for at least one night.

burgundy healsShoes: I really want a pair of burgundy heals (not that I wear heals that often, especially not in bed, but still enjoy dreaming about it). Those heals look super thin and will probably cause a fracture but oh how they would make any outfit more fun.

flowers octFlower: Hortensia has been on the list before but I really love this flower and how changing it´s color can add to every season.

outfit octoberOutfit: Big knits and good hair, yes please.

outdoor octoberOutdoor space: Since travel above offered a bedroom view I´m changing the bedroom category for outdoor space instead. This is the way I want to spend the days of Fall.

Screen Shot 2016-11-04 at 09.59.11Office: Last week I did a photo shoot for Residence Magazine in a home with an amazing home office to be inspired by. I love working for them as it always takes me to amazing places. The issue will be out next month and until then the colours and textures of this space will stay in my mind. It´s an office corner of a bedroom of Mauritzhof Hotel in Münster.

words octoberWords: Hopefully you are too? To dream is also planning, right? No fear.

food octoberFood: I´ve only made something with pumpkin once and that was cooking pumpkin soup when living in Paris 18 years ago so I can´t really say it´s one of my signature ingredients. But yesterday I had the most amazing warm pumpkin, sage & almond dish and now all I want to do is try something similar again. This recipe of Maple roasted pumpkin with chili and feta looked really good, maybe something for the weekend?

Series: Have always had a crush on Sarah Jessica Parker, from Girls Just Wanna Have Fun to classic Sex & The City. So needless to say I was really happy to see her star in the new series ”Divorce” on HBO, so good.

susstainable octSustainable pick: How come all products always empty at the same time? They are not at least by me used in the same way, the bottles are of different sizes and so on but still it seems they follow the same trend. This time I want to find some new products as I have always used the same and found Moonsun over at Make It Last. Good reviews, organic and with high quality ingredients. Please make me glow!

Music: Solange´s album ”A Seat at the Table” was released in September and has been the soundtrack of my work days since then. One of those albums that put you in a good and calm mood.

Gotland here we come!

Even though this was photographed a few years ago I believe, the interior is spot on for today as well. Timeless yet with materials and colors that are everywhere today. This is not where we are going to live but the house we are renting looks pretty lovely too, a 300 m2, 200 years old country house. Can´t wait for my second visit to this lovely island and some time to explore properly.

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.
