Notes from a Swedish stylist


The spring hasn’t quite sprung in Stockholm yet and I’m desperate to save my skin from giving up due to the cold, dry climate and constant weather changes. It’s definitely the time of the year to make an extra skin effort, don’t you agree?

I like making it easy though. As you know I’m a fan of Skin Treat, a brand sold exclusively at Kicks and Kicks.se. Skin Treat offers 100% vegan, at least 90% natural body care in which all key active ingredients originate from organic farming. Naturally gentle and budget-friendly, while at the same time technical and effective. How happy I am for the developments in this field, it didn’t use to be easy to find these kinds of concepts only a few years ago.

My best products to boost skin right now are from the Skin Treat Intense Moisture series. Rich, creamy formulas that work deeply, beyond the surface skin. The Multi-Action AHA & PHA Rinse-Off Peeling, Anti-Blemish Body Treatment and the Anti-Blemish Gel Cleanser are my favorites!

Sold exclusively at Kicks.se, right now with a 25 % discount.

In collaboration with SKIN TREAT.


Emma Elwin teams up with modern-day outlet Afound to share her best style advice–and guides to some of the prettiest things available at the marketplace selling carefully selected, discounted fashion and lifestyle products.

Have you discovered Afound yet? As one of the H&M Group’s latest concepts, Afound is an innovative marketplace–a modern-day outlet sweeping the world for gems and selling them at discount prices, both in physical stores and online. Afound currently operates in Sweden but hopes to expand internationally soon (follow Afound on Instagram and Facebook to be first in line to know).

 

I obviously love the idea of offering season-less, curated, timeless fashion, and prolonging the lifetime of clothes from previous seasons (who cares about the season?). I also love that Afound offers unique vintage accessories from timeless brands alongside new things. So when Afound asked me to share my best tips for a sustainable wardrobe I was excited.

If you’re curious to know about my very best wardrobe staples and how I reason when building a wardrobe to last, click here. I’ve also selected and styled some of my favorite items available at Afound right now  – exclusive vintage pieces as well as timeless classics from some major international brands – check it out!


Fantastic Four: Let There Be Light

Posted in Style
by Emma Elwin on 26 January, 2019

For the past few weeks, the darkness has been very overwhelming, and I’ve felt this urge to surround myself with light. So, here are four things that inspire me in these dark times:

1. What better way to protect your wooden table than with white crystals coasters. I’m hoping to find similar ones to these on a flee market this spring.

2. My favourite brand Bite Studios‘ spring collection gives me hope. The collection is focused on timeless design, detail and craftsmanship; underpinned by aesthetics that are timeless and understated. Also, Bite Studios only use fabrics made with natural, non-harmful dying processes and treatments.

3. The lamp of my dreams! I’ve been thinking of this lamp since I saw it in October, and couldn’t stop myself from ordering it…

4. Like I wrote a while back, my mission right now is to cover my walls with work by female artists to level up my daily intake of girl power. This painting by Swedish artist Siri Derkert is one that I would love to decorate my study with.
