    Stockholm Vintagemässa 2016

    I’ve written a guest post on my  Top 10 Tips for Vintage Shopping over at BestofYou, full of my best advice on things to think about and how to be a great vintage hunter. I can’t think of a better time to share my recent trip to vintage heaven, the Stockholm Vintagemässa 2016. Stockholm Vintage fair is […]

  • 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 […]

  • 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. […]

    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.

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 […]

  • Carved 1920’s Bakelite

    A throwback to February for a simple outfit where this true vintage treasure is the star! This turn of the century pendant is made from some of the first plastic, bakelite. It’s highly collectable, funny considering how most people feel about plastic these days! This is truly one of my most precious pieces of jewellery. […]

  • Sun Halo

    On my way to work the other day, the sun was shining a bit unusually. I stopped and took a few snaps, and walking along the bridge (away from the approaching bus I was going to take) I discovered there was actually a halo around the sun. I carry my DSLR around sometimes, so I […]

  • Field of Lupins

    In June the fields of Sweden turned purple. The lupins had arrived, strong and proud, standing tall like they had always been there. Not that anyone would dare question them. I admired them through the glass as we  passed them, driving down thin roads bruised with their purple and blue blossoms.  Finally one night, as […]
