Stroll

Stroll with mini me yesterday after a delighted lunch at Diplomat.
Many of you have commented that little Leon is a copy of my father (and me actually when I was small) and my love Alexis looks like my mother in law a little. It's absolutely correctomundo! I think so too!

(by the way, on the picture I wear no lipstick, it's my finished lip tattoo that you see looks so perfect in pink/beige colour, can highly recommend it. I went to Jenny Hanzon at Akademikliniken for you who wants to do it also!)

In the meantime

After a full rainy and autumn-ish cold week, it was a blessing to have the summer sun back again, just ready for us to leave for a longer time and welcoming our friends into our house to stay during the time.

I really cant wait to leave Sweden!

(This picture is by the way taken with our new Panasonic Lumix LV100 camera. I have a new system camera (the body) on its way also, a real tough one that I've dreamt about a long time, but this smaller one is suppose to be excellent and sometimes it's easier to bring a small camera then my enormous one.)

Flash Back

My man is finally coming back to Stockholm again tomorrow before we 
let my friends move into our house in Sweden and enjoy the house-feelings in Stockholm during summer and we immediately fly into our house in South of France. 

Since there's so much to packing and fix before leaving for a longer time, I've been lacking in posts. 
But maybe you want a LONG and beautiful flash back in moments and pictures from 2012?

Coral red

A white crispy shirt (it was perfectly ironed but then I carried Leon), simple pants, some comfortable heels and a gorgeous bag. A combo I wear more often then seldom!

Have a beautiful day, this week is count down from horrible weather to my happy place on earth!

Craziness

These two, I mean these two. They might look like two angels, but I'll give them to you for three hours and If you survive, I'll salute you. I don't know if mine are worse then other brothers with the same small age difference, but mine are just completely CRAZY filled with energy. Phuuuuu ... I'm sure my parents love to have them there with us, but tonight when we're back home,  they will sleep like two rocks.
I hope my Dear parents in law are ready for these two wild boys for a month in our house in South of France. It will be quite something now when they both are so active and curious of life.

You readers with girls might be offended, please don't I'm sure you'll have a harder teenager period then me, but honestly ... sometimes I wonder how we stay sane. 24/7 of constant tricks, climbing, running, jumping, testing, it's like motion captured in two small bodies that just needs to explode 100 times per day. Everyone I meet or introduce this reality to (that are not use to small boys) just loose their breath and wonder how I cope.
All I can say is, only mothers and father in the same situation understands. Only them.

I love them to death and have gotten use to this life of never ever sitting still and relaxing, but even so, I sometimes just stand int he middle of it all and ask myself if this can be possible? Sometimes I just want to lock them into two different rooms and forget the key for an hour or two and catch my breath. But I guess I would miss them too much and let them out after ten minutes. That's how deeply I just need them around also. Love is weird for sure.

City chic

As a continuing on this great morning it's a pleasure to inform you that it was perfectly followed by a lovely lunch with a handsome friend in the city (where we were almost blown away though by the storm that arrived this afternoon unfortunately) and got a nice little gift for myself in coral red.
I picked up the kids on my way home and then the whole family went for an easy BBQ at some friends house on the other side of town. Really, a perfect day. I'm all warm inside! ♥♥♥♥

Mornings

My boys always wakes me up at 6am and it can really feel hopeless if you've had a dinner the night before or just stayed up late and want to sleep in. But mostly it's so great actually. You manage to do so much more with the day then if you snooze to 10am. By this time, 10.06 when I write this post I still haven't showered or put any makeup on, which for me feels so liberating.
I've had a soft and slow morning with the boys (I'm off today), took them to kindergarden and had a power walk after. I replanted some flowers in the garden and removed some weed and other things and really felt what a privilege it is to own a house even if it sometimes feels overwhelming with what needs to constantly be done and how expensive it actually is when you think about it. Three times as much as an apartment for sure with insurances, heating, water, garbage, etc etc. In the end though, I love the freedom so much. The feeling that this all, the flowers, the trees, belongs to us and the fact that the boys are constantly out playing and breathing fresh air.

After my walk I just sat down on our smallest terrace, outside the master bedroom which i've done for me and my man mainly and had a smoothie and just felt the wind breathing by and adored our apple tree behind. It felt so lovely. And it's only morning still! That's the best part!

Stina's Vintage Store

Dear readers, one of my beloved friends, another fashionista is selling off some of her shoes. They are too small for me, else I would get most of them myself. Small feet persons, take a look and indulge in really amazing prices for designers!

Hurry up though so I can ship them away before the end of June when I'm leaving for vacation!


As always it's first comes first!

Kevin Murphy

Got my man and me some products from the well known Kevin Murphy some weeks back. Their volume collection I've heard so much good from and I'm very happy with the results. I use the plumper after washing, when my hair is still wet.
My man had different styling products and some nice hair shampoo I hope he'll appreciate also!

Have you tried the brand?

Flying

We attended a vintage car and private airplane show last weekend. I love those old, shiny and perfect looking cars and all airplane owners showing off their freedom in the air. My man and my oldest was in heaven! We went with the wife and the guy my man flies with here in Sweden, her husband is just as crazy about all of this, meaning he is also and excellent source of information of all technicalities around it. A very intensive but fun day in the sun!

Coral blue

Wearing something old, something new in this poppy coral blue shade.
Enjoying a bit of refreshment before leaving for a small, private airplane and vintage car show with friends and kids yesterday.

Silver sparkling

Another wonderful evening yesterday. I had to split myself in two this night and started it with a super fun bunch of women who I've come do like so dearly and was later on picked up by my man who took us to the next crowd of people.
I wore silver from top to toe and it was one of this mind-blowing, Swedish summer nights. Warm, lively, beautiful and a lot of fun.

Louis Vuitton dinner wear

So i brought my old bestie and always amazing company Linnea, she is my soul sister and family. We enjoyed a lovely glas of bubbles before the evening started and seriosuly, had such a perfect night, in gratitude to Louis Vuitton. I was wearing this arty blouse from Marni which i got from a dear friend of mine and fitted it with the wider pants and my new heels. We look stiff, but we laughed and talked so much the whole evening, i can feel it in my jaw line!

Tonight is another festive evening, starting with some adorable girl friends and ending it with my man coming in to town from Geneva and meeting up another friend and her man for a dynamic dinner at Teatergrillen!

Talk soon! Happy Friday!

Louis Vuitton exclusive dinner

Ohhh what an incredible and impeccable night yesterday, hosted my the grand Louis Vuitton in Stockholm, celebrating the new beginning of the renovated store and the beautiful collection "The spirit of Travel".
We started it with cocktails in the store, checking out the colourful collections, the new interior that really takes the shop up a notch in elegance and international, French atmosphere - and a very few of us were later escorted my private cars to the French embassy where a magnificent long table had been put of with gorgeous flower arrangements that never seemed to end.
The world know chef, Matthias Dahlgren was there to cook a lovely menu for us and, yes, it was just so lovely. I was seated in the middle of the table, with my favourite Mr: M-LV and some other really fun and fascinating characters, including my bestie who I brought along since my man is in Geneva.
I feel so uplifted and humble, can hardly feel the fact that I came home far too late and was up with the rooster like always as my monkeys are earlier birds.

Thank you Louis Vuitton Stockholm! I'll stop by and get the bag I fell in love with soon!

Beautiful

More days like this please. This picture was taken last week, next to our majestic Hortensia I planted.
Tomorrow I will attend the exclusive private dinner with Louis Vuitton as host with my bestie since my man is abroad. So happy with my outfit i finally just got, more pictures from that soon!

I had the cosiest of time with the kids today from after lunch until bedtime - they fill me with so much love, it's hard to compare to anything else.

Talk soon!

Country side life

Everyone who knows me, knows how much I love being out in the nature. I find strenght in the calm forest, full of natural beauty and understand my smallness close to this endless and alive ocean. The kids have been taken out like this ever since they where newborn and I love exploring the simplicity of what we have around us in the country side in the Swedish archipelago. Life is so simple, you live in soft and practical clothes and the kids are dirty and tired in the evening from all wonderful country air. I never sleep as well as out there.
In a few weeks we're spending a long weekend in our family house again, let's just hope the sun decides to show itself a little bit more generous.

The sea

Back from a cold but cosy weekend at the country house in the Swedish archipelago.

Evening fun

Yesterday evening was as lovely as it should be in June. I meet up my adorable mother after work for some Cava at Vau de Ville and did some nice shopping and after had a fun time at the only place in Stockholm with an international atmosphere in the summer, Josefinas. Hence Christer (the owner) just had a pool installed, it might be that I jump between that place and Bodvars Strandbryggan this summer when still being in Stockholm and want to have a cocktail or two.
Galderma, (Azzalur and Restylane/Emervel) had a really well put together dinner for us and honestly, it felt like summer started. If you haven't seen that Sharon Stone is the front person fro Restylane this year and the amazing "real and natural results campaign" she is hosting, you just have to see it. CLICK HERE! It really proves how beautiful and natural you can look with Botox and filler when going to the right person who understand your face and your personal need.

I wore this lovely safari jacket from Valentino that I last wore in Provance when Leon was still in my belly and high heels. Next week will also be filled with summer festive things. Dinner with Louis Vuitton and a summer party, not so bad after all!

One, two, kiss!

Motherhood at its best.

Since my smallest is not at all as affectionate as my oldest (I hope that will get better though, meaning he hates kisses and cuddles but is very cute in his own way), i enjoy Alexis kisses and hugs even more. Straightly picked up from kindergarden - dirty, happy and ready to plant some flowers with me.

BLACK ...

... always such a stunning colour when you think about it.

In between

I should not complain - but I CAN'T help myself being depressed in this horrendous, non existing summer. A couple of days before I had a hat, wool coat and my Isabel Marant autumn boots. How sad?

We've also spent so much time and money now on both of our two terraces and it's impossible even to sit outside for a cocktail when necessary, unimaginable to enjoy a cosy dinner. Please, please, please arrive with those impeccable summer nights now and mild, warm winds in the evening.

PERSONAL STYLE

Summer is hesitating strongly to arrive in Stockholm and it make me long and go trough warm and atmospheric photos of last summer again. It's funny how the soul feels so much more liberated and joyful when we have the natures in bloom, the heat form the sun and the beauty of life in another dimension then during the rest of seasons.

Can't wait for bare legs, our pool, dresses, light tops, sandals, calm days, bikinis and cool bathing suits, high heels and endless evenings again with family and friends!
