I found this brand last fall and really liked there philosophy which goes like this:

Living beautifully has been EcoTools mantra since it launched a few years ago. The fast-growing brand believes in finding the perfect balance between beauty and environment. A harmonic combination of conserving our fragile environment while allowing you to find beauty from the inside out. EcoTools has a fine selection of beauty products, with their soft and delicate make-up brushes being the most popular of the range. The natural and sustainable bamboo plant, recyclable aluminium and recycled plastic are some of the materials used by the brand. You must remember to not only think about the ingredients of the products you apply to your body, but also what tools you use to do so. EcoTools natural and 100% cruelty free products allow you to use fantastic quality products as part of your daily routine while remaining environmentally conscious.

The search for lamps for the apartment continues to day. The hardest one to find is the one for the livingroom. One lamp I can’t stop thinking about is this one from Costa Rica.

Seventies

Emma tries to avoid trends.

Jacket, H&M. 

I truly try to avoid trends which over all is pretty easy. Until one of my favorite decades are the inspiration for the season. I have a weakness for the 60s and 70s. This spring the seventies is a true hot potato in the fashion world. And I just want everything 70’s I see. When this happens I try to remember what I read in this article. Also, the best seventies cloths are the garments that actually are from the 70s! This weekend I’m taking myself on a vintage hunt!


You need to check out the new Make it last organic beauty editorial! I love the 70’s vibes. See the full story here!

I have a thing for bamboo. Especially when it comes to accessories.  These earrings are a bit out of my price range but on the plus side if one where to buy them they plant 8 bamboo seedings to give back to the earth. They write on there website:

“We strive to always do better. Being green is a never ending process. Every day, we are implementing energy-efficiency programs and evaluating ways to lower our impact on the environment because we care for our people.”

– Damien Dernoncourt of John Hardy

True classics

Emma did get some nice Christmas gifts.

IMG_6332 kopiera

I’m not much for bags. Or any accessories for that matter. One bag that I’ve always considered a classic that I really wanted in my wardrobe is a quilted one from Chanel. So when I got one for Christmas I just couldn’t believe it. What I love about these bags is that I can still see my self wear it as a 80 year old lady. Really chic and most importantly timeless.

Yesterday I was like a kid in a candy store.

stellamccartneyYesterday I was like a kid in a candy store. I got to spend an hour with the very nice people at the Stella McCartney store in order to find a something to borrow for yesterdays Gala. Not an easy task in a store where you wanna wear EVERYTHING (this is a luxury problem that I’m not sure I deserve) but after narrowing it down to two outfits. I was choosing in between this dress I been eyeballing online and this lace jumpsuit that Naomie Watts wore at the Oscars (!) I decided on the dress. I post a picture tomorrow, hope you’ll like it as much as I did!

The shirt that I’ve been living in this past month is this Oxford shirt in baby blue. Or actually I’ve been wearing it at least once every week the last two years since I got it. It’s been washed, brought all over the world to beaches and on winter holidays. And it still looks the same as the day I got it. It really is the perfect fit and color it’s always been special to me since it has my initials on the left cuff. A small thing that maybe shouldn’t matter but it really makes me wanna keep the shirt forever.IMG_6285 kopieraShirt, Gant.

And I felt right at home.IMG_5970 2-BWAfter unpacking the surfboards we head down to the beach to see what mood the ocean is this very day. IMG_6017 2 kopieraThe first week was we didn’t get perfect longboard waves. This picture is form the last day when the conditions where perfect. But I’m so grateful that we got so many good days of surf as we did. IMG_5439 kopieraAfter the morning surf at 5 am we would head to the organic restaurant Olam at the boutique hotel Nautilus. Other days we would go to my favorite café place in Santa Teresa called The Bakery.IMG_5479 kopieraHere you have Josefin and me at Olam. I feel in love there gluten free pancakes and organic smoothies. Perfect after a few hours of morning surf.IMG_5420 kopieraThey also had Yoga classes on the loft of the restaurant where we took this picture. I wish I could tell you I went once but nope, I didn’t even stretch once after surfing… Something I’m gonna regret at tonights Yoga class here in Stockholm.IMG_5372 kopieraAt the beach I was quite bussy making friends with the local dogs.

Something I could recommend to everybody going to Santa Terese, having a pool that is.IMG_5646 2 kopieraFrank by the poolside enjoying the shadow. IMG_5518 kopieraMost evenings we went out for dinner but some night we had the pleasure of eating fish tacos or Andrés amazing lentil Dhal.IMG_5995 2 kopieraAt the beach it was all about the surf.
