LONDON with my girls

Oh my God, what an incredible weekend I've had these past days, just because my tall, beautiful, strong, loyal and caring bestie invited me to London with her as a gift from just nowhere. I feel completely uplifted of life and joy, really something you can sometimes only get in these fun, lively and eclectic surroundings by dear girl friends from all over the world.
We meet up with P from London who sort of has a access to everything for an absolute top notch time and with the help of my gorgeous girlfriend M from Zürich, they so kindly booked every day and planned it amazingly for lunches shopping, cocktails, dinners and clubs at the best of the best, mostly members clubs and restaurants of course since that's where you have all the best of memories ...

Endless taxi trips all around, gourmet food, english ambience, girl talk, many glasses of bubbles, only problem being the astonishing hotel which I loved but hardly had time to enjoy to the fullest. But in the same way, who wants to sleep or lay in bed when you have this vivid cosmopolitan just pounding around you?

It was times we laughed and giggled so much, I honestly felt like my belly was about to cramp or crash and since two of them are brought up in London (among other places) they are just the best to be around and the shopping was impeccable as always when coming to this just so classy and sophisticated city.

I mean, worlds can never describe a weekend like this and I'm not intending to try reveal it further then by saying that it was just so much fun and really, London is one of my favourite cities in Europe.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart A, M & A!

Love you!

  5. Your lip? Can you honestly say that the lip-pigmentation you did was a success and with good, natural result? In my eyes it looks.. well, there are no need to say it. Nice pics from London though.

    1. How could you ever know since I always wear lip pen and lipstick over? Don't judge by a cover ... If you don't like my way of putting make up that's your opinion but who could care less?

      Best,

    3. I just love that you are dressing, taking care of yourself and wearing make up in your own way. Liberating! I do not always feel that everyting is for me but that is the beauty of it in my eyes. As long as I feel something, get inspired, challenge or anything I will enjoy reading your blog.
      So many copys everywhere today. Looking at instagram and some blog, they all show the same pieces and outfits. Thats why I really like this place, it is personal and brings some fresh air to the blog community. Thanks!

  14. Underbart att ni fick en sådan fin helg! Gosh ni ser så glada och snygga ut, sådär exklusiva som bara en del gör på riktigt. Du klär dig tips top jämt:) Helt otroligt imponerad av att ni kan "göra" London i klackar och inte "träningsskor";) Glädjer mig åt att du fick denna helg med dina vänner, som du är värd det som är ensam med barnen så pass ofta. Gillar skarpt din mindre ljusblekta hårfärg, det ser så naturligt och fräscht ut. Kram till dig!

    1. Ha, ha ha ... Well my feets were tired after this trip but sometimes you just have to make an effort. But if you saw me on my Instagram account (stina_auer) you could also see a pair of super comfy Isabel Marant sneakers, but I did wore mid heel boots almost 24/7

      thank you for reading and commenting and for all kind compliments!

  15. I really enjoyed this post. The energy and happiness of all of you spending time together really shines through. Lovely!

    May I ask what brand and model the gorgeous black tote that your girlfriend wearing the trench coat (in the photo of the 4 of you) is holding? I absolutely adore the shape of it.

  16. Oh dearest, i have never seen such Happier pictures from you and your also beautiful friends in the
    This magic London when we exactly know the places where to go and to have the opportunity to be glad to enter when private as you could have done. It makes me full of joy looking all of you.... Only one question Stina, how did you do to travel with so many coats ? Particularly the furs' ones who take a lot of place in the luggage?
    If I am with my husband He would become crazy!!!! Well, alone may be, it was easier?
    Special great trip for wonderful ladies. I really would be happy to have such sincere and fantastic girl friends around me! Its not the case unfortunately.......

    1. Welcome back Uta!

      Well, I traveled with a large luggage and had them veyr carefully put in fur protection. The Red fox fur I had to travel in, it really didin't fit without taking up half the luggage!

      My man can't understand me neither but what can you do, he is use to it by know!

      And yes Cecconi's been around for such a long time and I'ts like Bindella in Zürich, such great feeling to it!

      You have to try Corinthia as a hotel, I'm sure you'll be very happy with your choice!

      Hugs,
      stina
