DIY Easter Pastel Party

I have to admit I never been crazy about Easter (except for the fact that you get a couple of extra days off from work). Saying that, for this years Easter, I headed back home to Sweden  to spend some quality time with my family and decided to go Easter-Decoration-Nuts. My sister and I decided … Continue reading

Blondie&Pixie DIY Experiment: Statement Headpiece

In the second workshop for the Blondie&Pixie DIY experiment, Carmen and I decided to play with tulle to create two-different head-pieces. December is one of those months that are crazy-busy and packed with Christmas parties and events. In the midst of doing-everything-that-needs-to-done it can be difficult to find the time (and the energy!) to get … Continue reading

DIY Tulle Skirt

Ever since I saw the below photo several seasons ago, I’ve been obsessed about creating a big-puffy-nude-pink-tulle-skirt. I dissected the tulle-skirt topic here a couple of months ago (love-love-love the white-polkadot-tulle-skirt from Chloe Fall’13) and was planning to schedule this post shortly after. That did not happen (sorry!) as my life over the last two months … Continue reading

DIY Patched Denim Jacket

Fashion trends are quite facsinating. It starts so subtly; you see a detail; a fabric; a silhouette; a vibrant colour that you like. Initially, you may not even know that it’s a new “trend” coming along, you just know that you like it. Then – boom – there is the explosion and you suddenly see … Continue reading

Blondie & Pixie DIY Experiment: Rhinestone Heels

Life is ironic. Carmen and I meet several years while studying Business at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology. Between the busy schedule of supply and demand, I found myself daydreaming about beautiful fabrics, dresses and shoes. I asked myself if there was anyone else “out-there” dreaming about a career beyond finance? Several years … Continue reading

One of my favourite hobbies during summer time is to renovate old furniture. Last summer, I renovated an old coffer and this summer, I got my hands on a gorgeous vintage pin chair (check out my flea market post of reviews of the greater Gothenburg area ). Despite being very different kind of furniture, I … Continue reading

DIY Vintage Teatowel Pillow

As mentioned from my flea market posts, this summer has been a quest sourcing old vintage pieces and coming up with new product applications and ideas. I received a bunch of old monogrammed linnen towels from my aunt (check out their gorgeous little red cottage here), which used to belong to my fathers grandmother called … Continue reading

DIY Nautical Name Bracelet

I participated in a Fashion show organised by the lovely Fa Herrington at ITS Fashion project last summer and the theme of my collection was “Maritime Luxe”. I came to think about it as I was looking through a lot of old pictures and found the inspiration board. The blue and white colour combo seem … Continue reading

DIY Transparent Embroidered Cards

I love giving and receiving cute cards. May it be hand-drawn, with a quirky illustration or a good quote; anything with a little bit of thought behind make my heart skip. My boyfriend and myself are separated this summer as I’m back in Sweden and he is in Australia for work. While we are use … Continue reading

DIY Swedish Midsummer Flower Crown

This post is coming a few day’s late as I’m in London visiting my sister (more traveling posts coming soon). To understand why Swedes are crazy about midsummer, one need to know that we are not a particularly patriotic country (except for the ones’ living abroad – we tend to be over-the-top celebrating anything Swedish). … Continue reading
