This is what Emma Elwin is planing to wear for her new years outfit.

Today we are going down to the beach for a quick surf session and the we are off again to Venice beach to celebrate the new year with Lisa, Martin and some friends of theirs.

I was going trough my wardrobe yesterday and I did not bring to many fancy clothes to wear except my lace up Miu Miu sandals and a dark blue dress. I might wuss out and wear jeans and a shirt instead of the dress. But the shoes, them I have to wear!

Happy new year to you all!!!

Like new!

Earlier today I mended the little holes that had appeared on the front of my favorit t-shirt. At hand I had my new sewing kit. And even though my sewing skills are a bit rusty, I am pretty happy with the result. The only thing I need to do now is to press the the sewn patches with an iron to make them a little bit flatter.

Emma Elwin is looking for a good alternative to bottled water in California.

The other day I went in to a coffee shop to buy water and was exited to find this one.

Stick with the virgin colors , no dyes

Alpaca sweater, Industry of all nations.
This the sweater that I got during our Christmas weekend in Venice. I already feel that it will be a good friend of mine for a long long time. What makes me love this sweater even more is that the colors are all natural virgin colors, no dyes.

I think this is a great thing to send with each knitted garment. Some extra yarn incase you would need to mend a hole in the future.


Your moms

Cool kid

One of the things I really appriciate here in Encinitas is all the second hand shops and the unique stuff you can find if you just take a closer look. There is one store called Your moms where they sell super cute second hand kids’ clothing. Second hand clothes for kids is not only a great option to save money, worn and washed clothes are less likely to contain rests of dyes and other toxics.

All you need sewing kit

For Christmas I got this sewing kit, which in my opinion might be the ultimate gift for anyone. I have been looking for something similar for ages back home without any luck. This would be an easy gift to make yourself as well. Later on today I am gonna mend som holes in one of my favorite t-shirts.
