Take a look at this pictures. Imagine yourself standing over there. The view, the fresh air, the mountains: isn’t this breath taking? And we all know that pictures didn’t get close to seeing it in real life. For all of you planning a roadtrip to Norway? Go!

LIKE TO HAVE: STUFF at GINATRICOT

November 3, 2010


In times where ‘Broke is the new Rich’ we, fashionista’s who love to travel, need to be creative. Shop at budget stores around the world for example. Nobody who notices it because it’s an original piece in your country. In London we go to Primark and Topshop, in Madrid to Stradivarius and Blanco and in the northern countries we go to Ginatricot. A high street chain who loves to get inspired by Malene Birger and Day. I bought a sailers jacket for 70 euro last year (see image at my About page) and still get compliments. So a trip to Copenhagen, Stockholm or Oslo isn’t complete with a visit to Ginatricot.

My shoppinglist:

Beige pull: 21 euro
Striped sjawl: 13 euro
Gold laptop sleeve: 21 euro
Jacket: 40 euro
Socks with hearts: 4 euro

Total: 99 euro.

LIKE TO HAVE: ORDER VALET STAND

August 18, 2010

The idea behind this design: an alternative ‘clothes chair’. You know the one chair you throw all your clothes on in your bedroom. And by doing that you create an instant messy look overthere. Not something I prefer. The design of this stand includes some alternative hangers so you can hang your shirts and jackets over it. I love it. Design House Stockholm sells all things design. But all with a minimalist Scandinavian touch. From clothes to tabletops and from vases to furniture.

Price 239 euro Check out: http://www.designhousestockholm.com
