Moodboard: Totally Romantic






[1. Gucci / Ellie Saab 2. Gucci / Tumblr 3. Saint Laurent / Tumblr 4. Stella McCartney / Abraham Mignon 5. Stella McCartney / Gucci. ] 

Ahh I am very in love with SS16 fashion. It's all straight out of a story, tumblr-chic, dreamy and completely whimsical. Dying for pink Saint Laurent dresses, Gucci black lace and botanical suits chez Stella McCartney.

What went on this week











This week got off to the wrong start, seeing as I got precisely one hour of sleep Sunday night and ended up skipping my morning lecture due to being completely sleep deprived. Not that big of a deal, really, and I didn't really miss anything significant but it meant that I spent the first three days of the week being very tired.

However, things seemed to pick up from there and besides being 100% confused by microeconomics (one of my classes this semester), the rest of the week has been pretty decent. The snow melted and the temperatures rose to much milder degrees, I went to the gym twice, a group assignment that we had was completed without too much fuss and perhaps most excitingly... I bought a new laptop! 

Honestly, I am so excited. I've been dreaming of trading in my six year old, slow-as-fuck macbook and today it finally happened. It feels amazing to be working with a laptop that actually behaves and does what you want it to. I think it will be great for my studies and for blogging...editing pictures and all of that is actually doable now without me going crazy from it taking so long.

Some more good things: watching new tv-shows - currently Portlandia and Twin Peaks, January coming to an end, getting used to living by myself, listening to St.Vincent, and Daughter's new album Not To Disappear and re-watching Parks when you're feeling low.

Cold beginnings

January. 
It's a new year. I've moved into a new place. Tomorrow a new semester of classes start and I finally feel like I can let go of 2015. The whole new-year-new-start-thing doesn't really work when you have exams both before and after Christmas.
And I truly do hope this year brings better things. I'm done with feeling blue, anxious and generally negative and I've resolved to try to deal with my problems rather than to let them fuel life.



Stockholm is freezing and covered in snow that will most likely stick around for a while (it's -13 outside). I'm living out in the suburbs now and it's actually a quite nice contrast to being surrounded by city noise all the time. I also have my own little house and fulfilling my dreams of living completely by myself; it's very freeing. 



Here's a sneak peak of my new place:


My cozy little dining area. I bought a table from Ikea that you can easily make three times bigger in case I decide to have people over. Also loving silver decorations as you might be able to tell.


Colourful books are the perfect contrast to all the white of the apartment. Can't wait to bring more of my books up next time I go home to my parents. I mean, where are my Harry Potter books??


My mom insisted that I needed a TV so that I wouldn't get lonely which is kind of crazy but I've only had it for a week and I'm already obsessed. I love being able to watch Parks and Rec before going to bed and having noise in the background while I'm cooking or getting ready.


Having the opportunity to decorate my own place is so wonderful! I brought a ton of stuff with me from my parents house (this lamp for example, and the curtains that used to be in my old room in France) but I'm also looking forward to buying more prints for the walls and other knick-knacks.

I've just had four days of relaxation after the most stressful month and a half in ages. I've slept late, watched a lot of TV and socialized in non-study-related situations. Friday evening, my friend and I watched the 1989 World Tour movie while drinking a lot of tequila and it was completely magical. There is seriously nothing better than drunkenly belting out to Taylor Swift while wearing pyjamas. We continued this wonderfulness by going to see Star Wars yesterday and even though I had seen it once before, I loved it just as much (if not even more...).

After this very necessary dose of fun, I feel so ready for a new semester. Bring it on.
