    ROSE GARDEN

    Who would come and plant me a rose garden? I love how the look and more than anything how they smell! I’m a terribly lazy gardener, but I do appreciate beauty. Maybe I would be able to maintain a rose garden… Some day. Right now our tiny garden space is barely holding a one bush of roses, one bush of peonies and one bush of hydrangeas. Only lilacs and rhododendrons are missing and then I would have all my favourites in one place! These photos of me where take by my hubby in a garden called the Guastalla garden situating in south-east of the centre of Milan. It had a…

    THE SECRET GARDEN OF ACQUABELLA

    Our little getaway in Milan was beyond perfect! Never mind the thunder storm on our first night there, we had so much fun just walking around and observing the Milanese way of life. Which is by the way, very different from the Roman! During the four days of my stay, we walked a lot (20k steps per day) and ate a lot too… Gotta keep things in balance, right? On our walks around the city centre we discovered amazing parks and gardens and stopped to admire them more closely whenever we got a chance. The Milanese have these gorgeous gardens in the courtyards/patios which are only meant be for residents…

    STORYTELLING BY PHOTOGRAPHY

    I love photography. As I love taking photos from everyday life and memorizing special moments on film, I do also love the more editorial kind of photography as well. Combining that with my love of styling and creating looks is my favourite pass of time, at least in the creative sense of things. I don’t get as much pleasure from painting or sewing (althought I like doing them a lot) as I do from creating a story with a series of photos. Either behind or in front of the camera, it doesn’t matter! This time I had the pleasure to work with Camilla with my vision. I wanted create a…

    THE DENIM JACKET

    A week ago I started my mission to find a denim jacket that would be fit to wear in many occasions during the spring/summer season. I wanted a jacket that is 100% cotton, without any elastane to make sure it would keep its shape as long as possible. I wanted a jacket which colour isn’t too light nor too dark, but a neutral shade of blue. With a little search (took about three stores) I found the perfect one from Cubus! So, now I’ve got a denim dress, a denim dress, a denim jacket plus jeans of course! I don’t know whether I’m a all-denim-everything person, but I do like…

    THE GINGHAM DRESS

    For me wearing a dress is the easiest way to dress. I save a lot of time putting on a dress instead of several pieces of an outfit. I mean, I love styling and taking my time with clothing, but sometimes (read: most of the times) I’m too busy to pick up fabulous outfits and come up with fresh ideas with shirts and pants. But I do sometimes struggle with what to wear, even with the dresses. When I’m having a “bad-clothing-day” I like to rely on one of my favourite dresses, which is always appropriate for work and suitable for more dressy occasions as well. It’s the gingham dress.…

    PACKING FOR A WEEKEND IN PARIS

    Yesterday was all about packing for a weekend in Paris. What to wear for a weekend stay in a sunny +11 degree (Celsius) weather? Easy, since the answer is pretty much anything! The trouble for me was to fit everything in my hand luggage… But I made it. Thanks to Pinterest! I created an inspiration board in Pinterest, which included outfit ideas to wear in Paris. Every item can be found in my closet, so all I needed was some outfit combo inspiration from Pinterest. That’s what I came up with, how do like it? I love it! It was so much easier to pack when I first visualized it…
