On our mind for January

January listIf you guys are like me and are working on a limited budget this month (after christmas, new years, holiday celebrations), you are probably not looking to spend a great deal of money this month. I have therefore assembled a short list of what we have on our mind this month – practical and/or inexpensive items that will help you feel inspired, feel good, or get organised!


I dont really know why but I have this thing for baskets. They just have the effect of making things appear more cozy and organised. I have searched long and hard for the perfect basket and this one from Hviit is my absolute favourite.

Finding the perfect organiser

It is high time that I bought an organiser to plan the exciting year that is 2014. For the last six years I have been using the black Moleskine weekly diary but this year I am thinking about changing it up. In love with this diary from Marjolein Delhaas.

DIY books

This year I will be involved with more DIY projects, particularly for the home. I am currently loving DIY books which can inspire me in this mission. Just waiting for this book by Susanna Vento & Riikka Kantinkoski, to be published in Swedish or English (it is currently only available in Finnish).

Rosehip oil

Ordinarily, my skin suffers greatly during winter time but this winter, since I have been slathering rosehip oil on my face every night before I go to bed, my skin is much more refreshed and hydrated. I can definitely recommend it! I have yet to try Kora’s rosehip oil, but I have heard great things about it.

Flea market/thrift shop finds

Unfortunately Stockholm has a shortage of flea markets at this time ofΒ  the year, but I this month you will find me scouring second-hand stores for unique finds for my apartment. I visited an amazing flea market in Copenhagen in November and picked up some amazing finds including this vintage brass magazine stand for only 50 Danish Kronor.


Every year I make a resolution to get my running shoes out and get moving again. A new pair of nikes, a new running playlist, great head phones and a running buddy always helps me get motivated. Running has becoming increasingly fashionable in Stockholm the past year. Why not invest in beautiful, minimal running gear (like the perfect pair of nikes) that can fit in seamlessly into your everyday wardrobe.
