Notes from a Swedish stylist


Birthday dress

Posted in Second hand
by Emma Elwin on 30 September, 2016

Emma is very happy for her birthday gifts.

I got this beautiful vintage dress for my birthday from André this weekend. What a guy I have! The tread is of silver and I can’t wait to wear it with my black knee high suede boots. He also got me a pair of ice skates, that’s another thing I am longing for! To get to skate on the lake next to our new house and drink hot chocolate in front of the fire place.

Love a beret

Dylan is sporting a new look and doing his Ingmar Bergman stare.

The other day Dylan’s godfather came by with this beautiful beret that hi found at a charity shop. Dylan instantly understod that a beret call for a more serious look. Here he is doing his Ingmar Bergman interpretation, pretty good ha?


French press

You only need is water and coffee, no filter or coffee capsules needed.

French press, Tiamo. 

I get so inspired by the lovely Lauren who writes the blog Trash is for tossers. She is writing about how to live a trash free life, please have a look at her site! You won’t be sorry! Since coffee is vital for me to function as a normal human being right now I was so happy when I found this stainless steal french press pot. It’s completely plastic free, keep the coffee warm and the only thing you need is water and coffee. No filter or coffee capsules needed. And not to mention the taste, in my opinion it’s the best coffee there is! When I make a port the smell reminds me of when when we spent our summers on their sailboat, my mother would make french press coffee.

Yogish collective

Emma has a new favorite brand.

If you would like to carry your yoga-mat stylishly to the studio I would recommend these leather straps made in soft organic leather. Since I can not find my mat (I hid it during my pregnancy so it would not judge me when I was eating french fries) this blanket had to fill in for it. The brand Yogish collective only works with organic, eco-friendly and sustainable materials in small-scale productions to ensure quality and sustainability.

Cloak coat

Posted in Outfits
by Emma Elwin on 25 September, 2016

Emma is looking forward to fall and winter coats.

Is it just me or are you guys also thrilled that it’s finally time to switch to winter coats? I just love to dress in layers, wear big scarves and wooly hats! Today I am wearing this coat that is a vintage find from Vestiaire Collective that I got last spring. I might end up living in i for the rest of this autumn. Mainly because it’s warm and cosy but also because I feel like I am on my way to a defence against the dark arts lesson.

DIY: baby gym

Posted in Baby

Emma shows how to make a baby gym. Easy, cheap and fun to make!

This weekend we made a baby gym for Dylan out of left over wood from when we built the bedroom wall. The sting, the paint and the wooden beads we had at home but the round stick in the middle we bought. But if you have an old broomstick you can use that instead! The paint is from Grandpa and called Fridhemsgatan. And the toys are from the organic brand Finn and Emma.
