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

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

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

Swedish Style: The Streets of Stockholm

When I started think about different topics for the Swedish Style blog series for Shopdescreateurs, the first thing that came to mind was street style and denim (don’t miss the interview with Dr.Denim here). This because Swedish fashion is after all about the functional-chic-affordable approach to Fashion as opposed to Haute Couture. Try to Google “street style” … Continue reading

Halloween Pumpkin Inspiration

Happy Halloween! For me, the best part about Halloween is to make cute pumpkin decoration and carvings. Halloween wasn’t really celebrated when I grew up in Sweden, so I always had a non-traditional sense for the holiday. I always loved pumpkins though; the shape, the taste and the color! Everything-all-at-once! However, over the years I’ve … Continue reading

SWEDISH STYLE – PLAYFUL, CLEAN & TIMELESS ACCESSORIES

As a full-time working employee and a semi-professional blogger, one of my day-to-day challenges is to dress appropriately for work as well as for evening dinners and events. Like many other Hong Kong gals, I always carry an “evening emergency kit” with make-up essentials, heels and accessories to quickly transform into evening mode. Experience has taught me that … Continue reading

Swedish Style –The Rise of Fashionable Denim

Loved beyond nations and generations; denim jeans was the catalyst for international interest in Swedish fashion and the starting point for several iconic labels like Acne, Whyred, Nudie, Cheap Monday and Dr.Denim. The second post in the Swedish Style series “The rise of Fashionable Denim” talks with the iconic Gothenburg label Dr.Denim about what-makes-Swedish-denim-so-very-special. Pop over and read the whole interview at Shop des Créateurs … Continue reading

Something Old, Something New …..

Antiques, vintage, slow-fashion, second-hand, loppis (in Swedish), thrift shopping, flea markets – name it what you want but once thing is clear – there is a HUGE trend right now in Sweden to Restore, Reuse and Renovate. The old saying “Something old, something new, something borrowed” has never felt more appropriate. Perhaps it’s a backlash … Continue reading

My Swedish Summer House – The Kids’ Attic

It’s ironic that I have not yet written a post about “My Shoebox apartment” in Hong Kong. After all, my tiny flat was what inspired me for the name of the blog. Once back in +852, it’s the first thing scheduled to be published. In the meantime; after hijacking my parents place here in Sweden … Continue reading

Sun, Waffles, Paint

I first thought about writing a DIY from my little painting session the other day but decided to skip it as I believe most of you know how to to use a brush and paint. Let’s just say it was not really anything groundbreaking; I just added a little bit of white and pale pink paint … Continue reading
