Notes from a Swedish stylist


A summer of surfing is in one way the highlight of the year for my hair, but at the same, the combination of saltwater and sun beats it up pretty badly. To keep it moisturized, I usually just treat the ends to some raw coconut oil, but this summer I’m going to try out the Biolage R.A.W. series. I’ve already been using the clay hair mask for three weeks, and I must say I love it!

Grow

Spring is approaching fast, so I spent the other day buying plants and seeds for the garden. My favorit one so far is this little lemon tree that I’ve temporarily placed in our living room window. The scent of the flowers makes me want to do a somersault—it’s truly amazing!
I even tried putting one of the flowers in some oil today, hoping that I’ll be able to make my own perfume. Might not work, but if it does, no one would be happier than me.
We also got cucumber, tomatoes and peppers, and as soon as the nights become a bit warmer, I’ll plant some sugar snaps too. I have to say it feels great (so far) to grow my own food. Before, I’ve only done some sprouting, so lets hope I’ll manage to keep these poor plants alive.


Now I remember

Old ballet body and secondhand jeans.

A week ago I had breakfast outside on our deck, only wearing a vest. This winter, I have questioned our move to the countryside many times, but after spending that weekend in the sun on the terrace, I knew why we did it.

Raw Hair

Lately, I’ve been feeling this urge to clean, detox, re-do and just get myself into a more controlled and stylish state. Spring-cleaning we call it around here. So, the other day I paid my hairdresser Hannah a much needed visit. After a few minutes talk about cutting a fringe again, we decide to save that for fall and just cut off the split ends instead.
Hannah, who’s been cutting my hair for a long time, agreed on the fact that my hair is a lot stronger and healthier since I stopped coloring it. So now I think my dream of having “lord of the rings-long” elves hair might actually come true! That is, if it survives a month of surfing, sun and salt water this summer…


Happy cleaning

Clean bath, Pure effect.

I’m just about to embark on something I’ve never done before: cleaning with bacteria (!). I’ll try it this weekend and get back to you with the scoop.
Wish me luck!


Patches

I love that some brands have started making patches! They are great when you want to patch over a hole, and you don’t have the skills or time to mend it with just needle and thread. Also, they’re a great way to make your shirt or jacket a bit more personal.

If you’d like some more inspiration on how to customize your shirt with embroidery, check out the shirts I made last year here!
