Star in a Suit

Pappa! Thanks for everything you have done and sacrificed for us. You are always ‘absurdly’ proud of us even at times when we might not deserve it the most. Oh, and thanks for giving us your nose and cheeks too 😉 You are a star in a suit. Happy Fathers Day. Love from your girls. … Continue reading

BAMBOO SCAFFOLDING

I never stop to be amazed by the bamboo scaffolding technique that is used in Hong Kong. No matter how big, tall or grand, the buildings will be dressed in bamboo from ground to celling, all constructed by human-hands. Bamboo scaffolding is a technique that have been used for thousands of years in the region. Hence, many Hong Kongers think  about Bamboo scaffolding … Continue reading

Vitsippan ute i backarna står

I just got back to Hong Kong after spending one wonderful week in Sweden – watching Fall transform into Spring. My sister was joking that I’m slowly turning into a landscape photographer as the nature has been my prime source of inspiration over the past visits (explaining all the flower and landscape photos that have been … Continue reading

Show Off Your Shoulders

March is one of those strange months in Hong Kong when you don’t know how-to-dress; one day is warm, the next will be rainy and cold(ish). At this point of the year, I always feel a bit stuck in my-old-boring-grey-winter-clothes. On the other hand, it feels odd to completely transit into full-on-summer-outfits (my-pale-legs are so-not-ready-for-it!). To … Continue reading

THE NEW DENIM

Denim has always had a special place in my heart. In a weird way, it was the catalyst for my love for the fashion industry. My first job ever started on the floor in a small boutique carrying Italian denim brands like Replay and Diesel. I got my first job here in Hong Kong as product … Continue reading

12 ESSENTIAL TIPS TO SHOEBOX-LIVING

This is probably one of the first blog post I should have written here on Shoebox-Living. After all, it was the inspiration for this blog as well as how I lived life in Hong Kong over the last seven years. A topic long over due, I got together with the Hong Kong’s newest creative web-community StylebyAsia to dissect … Continue reading

SNÖKRISTALLER

Af snökristaller klara står fältet prydt; om några veckor endast är allt förbytt. I glittren emot solen och fröjden er; snart sjunken I som tårar i jorden ner. I, vinterns vackra blomster, snart vissnen I, men utaf edra tårar skall blommor bli. Om några veckor endast är allt förbytt: af vårens väna blomster står fältet … Continue reading
