  • Wild Mushroom Pot Stickers

    wild mushroom pot stickers

    Autumn means one thing; mushroom season, and I’ve got an exciting recipe for wild mushrooms that I want to share with you! I come from a family of foragers, so it’s not unusual that I get something crazed in my eye during this time of year. Imagine plenty of walks in the woods searching manically along […]

  • Spotty for Yayoi Kusama

    I first discovered Yayoi Kusana way back in high school. She had an exhibit which filled Stockholm with spots, sparking a life-long interest in her unusual art. Studying psychology at the time, it felt extra poignant to see this artist using her mental health issues to create. For anyone who has not heard of her, Yayoi […]

    Pride Festival Stockholm 2015

    The horrendous act of violence committed in Orlando towards has resonated throughout the world. It seems impossible, in this day and age, so unreal in its cruelty and the sheer number of victims. The target of the killings somehow shatters our rose-tinted view of the world. We thought we were over this shit. A dark veil […]

  • Favourite Beetle Shoes

    and other stories petrol metallic shoes

    In my birthday post you may have spotted my beetle shoes. I posted about these bad boys nearly two years ago. I had spotted them during a visit to the & Other Stories‘ shop in London and fallen hard. They were too expensive, too perfect to use and they had to be mine. I made a […]

    & other stories metallic shoes

    I turned the ripe ol’ age of 27 exactly one month ago today, and the best present was that my London-based best bud and her boyfriend came for a weekend trip! I felt like a happy 5-year old for most of the day which is exactly how one should feel on their birthday. Here is a […]

  • Spring Trend – Blue Eyeshadow

    brown eyes light subtle blue eyeshadow

    Once the girls of Chanel’s spring 2016 collection marched out as pastel bandits it had been decided. Blue eyeshadow is back, and there is no getting round it. You may have already heard several complaints about this trend. It’s understandable. It is a tricky thing to pull off a colour mostly seen in children’s play makeup-sets. […]

    I am in love with the work of Sarah Benning. She is a fiber artist living in Spain, who produces bright and cheery house loop embroidery mainly featuring the humble house plants. I would happily have one of these in my bookshelf, or a few in a cluster on the wall like Sarah herself has!  Normally I […]

    On the 30th of April Stockholm’s vintage fair is kicking off again. I went last year but never shared the photos (I blame having too much fun) But, this way you can know what to expect if you are planning to go!  I went with Linnéa, a fellow vintage aficionado and my Mr. Miyagi when it comes to knitting.

  • Ruffles for Spring

    Patterned ruffle dress with ties

    There is no getting away from ruffles this spring. Most of the shops have already got their own takes on these flattering, flowy shapes. Personally I am craving a light blue top to toughen up with some cut-offs, and there are even faint plans in the works to make my own. Until then I am more […]
