On our mind for February

Feb wishlistSo I have a been a little bit slow on the blog-posting front this month due to all the things that life has thrown me (including a new dog) so here is a slightly late wishlist for february. This month there is a stronger focus on essential wardrobe basics, which I can never get enough of. I have not started thinking about my wishlist for spring, so these items are items that I would love to wear and use now.

1. Delicate gold jewelry

I generally do not wear a whole lot of jewelry and often try to steer clear of gold as it can look a bit funny with my tan skin but I totally fell for these beautiful and delicate pieces designed by Lara Melchior for & other stories. 

2. The perfect minimal silk camisole

Every girl should have a great black or white camisole in their wardrobe. Looks great paired with jeans, or for a more dressed up look with a black loose-fitted blazer (what I wore for valentines dinner last night). My all time favourite camisole is from Tibi but I have found a beautiful budget option with lace details from Monki (this one looks prettier in real life, I promise).

3. A new scent

I have to admit that I am one of those girls who buys one type of perfume and uses it almost every other day (Chloé by Chloé, in my case). However, I am looking to change it up this month and I am contemplating Rose Noir by Byredo. Byredo also makes beautiful leather perfume cases which I am currently pining for.

4. The perfect black shoulder bag

Although I could probably carry my black tote bag around every day I am still on the quest for the perfect black shoulder bag for evenings and those occasions when you just dont need much with you… This one from COS is my curent favourite.

5. The perfect boyfriend jeans

Since I have been wearing tight fitting black jeans/pants almost every day this winter, I am really longing for a lighter more relaxed option. The best boyfriend jeans, in my opinion are POP from Acne Studios.

6.  Versatile black ankle boots

My acne pistols have seen better days so really need to buy a new pair of black boots. I am particularly picky when it comes to this because black ankle boots are my most worn staple so they have to be both versatile and comfortable. What do you guys think of these boots?

7. Grey cashmere scarf

I am a sucker for a cashmere scarf, so much so that I have probably over-worn my black cashmere scarf this winter. Desperately need this Grey canada scarf from ACNE but they are sold out in this colour!

What is your favourite item? and which items do you think I should get?

How to actually wash your face

Isabelle Bellis

Most of us won’t ever be able to spend hundreds of dollars getting a facial by French beautician Isabelle Bellis in her beautiful New York brownstone. However! You can firstly read all about her here and here. And dream. More importantly, you can watch a three minute video and find out everything you are doing wrong whilst you wash your face. If you don’t learn anything, we are beyond impressed with your evening beauty routine (and please tell us more!)

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!

Baskets

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 of  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.

Running

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.
