Jag tyckte alltid världen om dig ♥



My grandfather passed away today. I will miss him so much, even though this was right for him. He was 97 years old and done fighting.

This song is for him...


Du kommer aldrig mer tillbaka
Och ingen vet vart du gått
Så gärna skulle jag velat resa
Dit du farit, om jag förmått
Att ge dig nånting på vägen
Hålla din hand
Säga ditt namn
Och visa dig vart du ska gå

Där på andra sidan
Där på andra sidan
Dit jag inte kan gå

När du går där på saliga ängar
För dom är saliga det vill jag tro
Kan du höra mig då när jag sjunger?
Där du vilar i sorglöst bo
Jag vill ge dig nånting på vägen
Hålla din hand
Säga ditt namn
Och visa dig vart du ska gå

Där på andra sidan
Där på andra sidan
Dit jag inte kan gå

Om jag var en fågel
Skulle jag flyga högt över taken
Lämna marken, lämna träden
Och ge mig själv åt vindarna
Ja, om jag var en fågel
Skulle jag flyga längs dina stränder
Var jag vågen i din bränning
Var jag fågeln i dit bröst

Där på andra sidan
Där på andra sidan
Dit jag inte kan gå

Summer days with Alice

Sweetest Alice came to visit me this week.


We hung out by the sea and had sushi...


And went to flea markets, rode our bicycles in the stormy streets of Copenhagen, and simply just had the best time.
Friday night we went to my favourite bars and met up with the girls, ran into people from both the past and the present, and danced around the crowded dance floors.



Saturday night (SA-TUR-DAY night!) we had a pizza picnic with Eva, and Cecilia and Hoang joined us for the open air cinema and the ever so lovely A Single Man.



Before we even knew it, it was time to say goodbye again.


I want to thank sweet Alice for these great times. She makes me believe in things I was starting to give up on.

Song of the week: Vampire Weekend - One (Blake's Got A New Face)


And my head told my heart to let love grow, but my heart told my head this time no.

I love this.

When a glance becomes a stare

I get most of my fashion inspiration from people on the street and different streetstyle websites. But I also love fashion diaries and blogs. Modette was my all time favourite, but some stupid people bought it and changed everything, so now there are no more Stildagböcker by cool Swedes. I really miss that. So lately LookBook seems to have become my new favourite. Here are some of the latest looks I have been staring at...

Monki höst

I can't help but dream about these lovely things from Monki's Fall collection...


But apart from that I don't really dream about Fall. Summer is kinda awesome, right?

Bye for now, Sweet Sverige

After a week of peace and quiet on the Swedish west coast I am back home now. Already missing Swedish nature... and everything else about the country. Fortunately I'm going back in August, when I head for Way Out West with the girls.

We stayed in a cute house surrounded by fields and woods...







I truly love Scandivian Summer.



Someone did something to be sorry for, but we were not sure what. I think I would accept this apology...


We went swimming in the afternoons to cool down...





And we enjoyed the great views of the sea from the rocks...




On our way home we stopped to have räckmacka and laxpaj here...

Tack kära dagar som lägger en paus mellan nu och då. Och en paus mellan dig och mig

I am off to Sweden now. Off to feel like this for a while...





I can't think of a better place to relax. I'll be eating hallon och blåbär and listening to Evert Taube with my family.

Sol och Sommar

I went to visit my grand parents yesterday. Perfectly relaxing. They have the best view from their Summer house. I love Scandinavian Summer and I plan to enjoy every second of it.

That orange feeling

I'm back from Roskilde. Pretty exhausted after some great days of music, dust, beers, dancing, mustaches, hanging out with friends and having great fun.

Every day was nice and sunny...


We tried out some new looks...





And stayed up late at night exploring the festival area...



And had midnight Gurka snacks...


We listened to rock 'n' roll...


And Vampire Weekend. Cutest band ever...


Relaxed...


And played board games back at the camp...



Roskilde can be quite disgusting, but also very beautiful...



I already miss waking up to Walt Disney soundtracks and Nutella sandwiches.
