Notes from a Swedish stylist


As you know, I love how you can make a simple garment unique by adding a little something to it – like an embroidery. Last week we shot beautiful Nikita in some unique pieces from STAND’s spring 2017 collection – all embroidered with the lastest innovation within the embroidery industry. Embroline by Coloreel is an attachment for embroidery machines that both enables unique designs and improves the overall production efficiency by instantly colouring the thread during the actual embroidery production (which means no interruptions for switching threads). Think of it a little bit as a colour printer for industrial embroidery. Cool huh? Look at all the looks here!


Åhléns – Bra val

Why it's a good idea to choose wood instead of plastic.

I find it such a relief that an ever-increasing number of people consider the environmental footprint not only of fashion and beauty but also of furniture and kitchen supplies before they make purchases.

It’s important for a number of reasons: it concerns our health (did you know poor indoor air quality is often related to toxins in furniture?) as well as natural resources and our biosphere (which is the reason we have to consider if the things we buy are durable, recyclable, renewable).

Our choices of materials are so important for the state of our planet for example choosing (FSC labelled) wood instead of plastics for things such as cutting boards.

Here are some reasons to choose wood instead of plastics:

– Wood products are in most cases the more durable choice of material, which helps to preserve the earth’s resources.
– Wood products, at least responsibly treated such, are renewable. Plastics are made from petroleum which is not a sustainable source. Recycled plastic is of course better though!
– Studies show that heat can make certain plastics release chemicals that can be absorbed by the food your cooking. Read more about the different types here.
– Wood is a so much more beautiful than plastic! Try to buy untreated wood and use natural oils to protect it’s surface.

I have selected some of my favorites from Åhléns Bra Val selection. These are all products that have been produced in a environmental friendly way and will make your kitchen a lot prettier than plastic tools.

Emma has plans for next summer...

I keep dreaming of next summer, even though this hasn’t ended yet. We are thinking about spending Andrés paternity leave in France and Spain. This would mean a life of surfing everyday. Fingers crossed that we can make that happen!

For tired eyes

Emma might have found a cure for tired eyes.

Since my sleeping routine is non-existing at the moment I was very happy when I got my hands on this eye serum. All organic containing coffein, green tea, antioxidants and more. So now I am hoping that my tired red eyes will magically disappear!

On Sunday this little gem is turning two months old! My days with him are literary running away, an hour feels like five minutes. He is quite calm, VERY determined and likes to be in my arms all the time. My favorite time everyday is when we are cuddling in bed under ower huge fluffy duvet. Also when you tickle his cheek he starts laughing <3


Breakfast

Emma is switching her summer breakfast for a more Autumn friendly.

I have switched my Oatly yogurt and musli for a more Autumn like breakfast, porridge. I boil it in oatmeal milk and serve it with coconut milk, cinnamon and pumpkin seeds.
