The trend Body Comfort
Twice a year I collaborate with the Swedish Fashion Council in the making of short moodfilms for their seasonal seminars in which they present trends for buyers and industry folks for the upcoming two years. This spring season resulted in these three film, depicting the trends for autumn/winter 2017/2018. What do you think?
I’m not sure how much I’m allowed to reveal about the trends themselves, at least not yet, but you should be able to get a feeling of them just through the films :)
Dwell in Darkness
Umm, did you see that Rosé slushee over at A Beautiful Mess? It is just the prettiest looking (and probably tasting) thing ever. It’s ultimate for suppressing every last bit of autumn. And it follows the cherry on top-rule, you know; how nothing can fail with a cherry on top (like these cream sodas for example). Heck, I think the first photo on pinterest must have included something with a cherry on top of it.
Speaking of rosé, I think these drinks would preferably be consumed near pink plants and a modest tent by the beach:
You probably know by now that I’m an instagram-junkie. So, my likes on the the instagrammers photos below started piling up on @lolitasblog and I thought I would I might as well share my faves of the moment.
Here they go:
Nice photos, funny captions, a combination of food and fashion and great NYC restaurant and cafe-tips. She’s an associate producer at Popsugar AND founder of Current Creative, an influencer marketing agency. Girl’s just boss.
Pastels, palms, ruffles, pink hologram fabrics and puffy shoes. I love Ann Wynns fashion sense and the fact that she promotes self-love, acceptance and body confidence just makes it even better. She’s not only a blogger but also a co-owner of the Pink Plastic Babez brand, your go-to place for awakening your inner 90s princess (or just getting the best dress for you night out ever).
Light and dreamy photography, flowy lettering and great architectural snaps, Brisbane-based blogger and creative Jasmine Dowling captures the prettiest moments on her blog and instagram. She’s got a shop with really nice prints as well, perfect gifts (for youself). All in all an inspiring lady!
Thats my favs for now. Got any other tips?
So, initially I thought this edit would feature mostly dream-destinations but then I remembered The Dean Hotel in Dublin and thought I might as well start off with a dreamy hotel I actually stayed at. This hotel is in other words tried, tested and extremely approved! Why, you ask? Because if the front dosen’t do it for you, maybe the surrounding neighbourhood will:
The Dean is basically boxed in between dreamy Irish brick houses with bright colored doors and windows covered in plants and blooms.
The rooms are the size of small apartments with orange SMEG-refridgerators, LP-players with Marshall speakers and a selection of great tracks, a reasonable prized Munchies-selection with handmade fudges and iphone-chargers and, on top of it all: Netflix!
I think the only problem with this hotel is that you might not get out and see Dublin so much because of the amazing rooms.
This house is opposite The Dean. You don’t have to go far to satisfy your instagram in other words.
And on top of the hotel lies Sophie’s, a roof top bar with a great view and equally nice menu.
I think this hotel is great for both a city weekend with friends or a romantic getaway with your loved one. The price is around €200.00 for the SupeRoom of 26 sq.m which I stayed at and I would say it’s worth it considering the great location and all the comforts in the room (netflix and snacks, duh).
All in all, an inspiring stay!
Hello perfect lightning..
I used to be so into the all white interior with no stuff at all. Don’t get me wrong, I still am. Afterall, I grew up in Stockholm, come on, the psych about white interior is for real here.. But lately I’m really feeling more bohemian quarters, what with plants and all that pinterest fuss.
For example, how can you not love this Beacon hills house front?
Can you think of an outfit without the location? I’ll usually start off with the place and plan thereafter. Or with a single piece of clothing. In this case, the sheepskin pants got me thinking. I love this model, with the side pockets and pleated details. The price is on the high side so I matched them down with some affordable pieces and finished of with playful YSL earrings. The background is the fabric detail from this gorgeous long denim bomber jacket.
Only thing needed is a pink wall to take your photo with! It’s 2016 afterall and the photo location of your #ootd is as important as your outfit right?
This week I’ve been all for dusty hues, symmetric holiday resorts with a hefty dose of yuppie 80s vibes, edible flowers and net shoulder bags. I’m not over summer. And the holographic nails are just the 90s peak of shimmering perfection I needed this week.

Some months ago, I went to Dublin for the first time for the blog travel blog Fantasiresor and made a small travel guide. I had read about the friendly spirit of the city and the beautiful landscapes but it totally blew me off my feet, I loved it! The people were just the nicest, most easygoing ever and the city was so exciting, full of creative energy.
There was suberb graphic design everywhere, from the street signs of small local business to beautifully layouted posters and restaurant menus, a possible outcome of companies like Google, Apple, Amazon och Facebook having their offices (and creatives) nearby, taking on challenges both on a digital and grassroot level. Dublin is actually the nr 1 tech hub in Europe, here’s a sweet map of where the offices are located in the city center if you feel like some millenial sightseeing.
We went to see the beautiful coastline and the infamous James Joyce tour one of the days. Pictured above is the genius french travel blogger Julie Sarperi of Carnet de Traverse, be sure to check out her blog if you love breath-taking photography.
I stayed at The Dean Hotel and it was just the loveliest experience, I’m getting back to this place in a separate post (because it deserves it obviously).
If you love beautiful house fronts with personal, quirky doors, this is the city for you! There is even a hashtag called #doorsofdublin which says something about the supply.
It’s very Diagon Alley all over the place, just sayin’.
The Dean Hotel facade.
If you read in Swedish, there are three posts on this city for you at Fantasiresor. To do in Dublin, The food & city and The Dublin oastline. If not, the photos tell quite alot about the city – if you think about going, I strongly recommend it!
My 3 top tips for a Dublin visit:
*Have lunch at Super Miss Sue, then stroll the neighbourhoods.
The trip was part of the blog campaign Dublin – a breath of fresh air, and was organized by Tourism Irland together with iambassador (partner with Nordic Travel Bloggers (NordicTB)). The campaing hashtag is #LoveDublin, check it out for lot’s of tips both on instagram and twitter.
