WOW! How fast did November go? Don´t know with you guys, but I cant believe it is almost the end of 2016. Looking back at November that that passed so quickly, I must say it has been a good month.


Staying active, I´ve been able to get at least three days of exercise every week, not slacking off, like I often tend to do. So I´m just in a really great state right now. I don´t pay for a yoga studio or gym, since the temperature in Sydney is always pretty good for outdoor fitness.

Jens and I went on a little trip to Jervis Bay, something I really needed, just getting away from the busy city and get my mind of uni, assessments, work, just life in general

My final design outcome for my brand development at uni, wow this have been so much fun, and hard work! I just really love the look I designed, the amazing work from my maker and just getting used to the whole process of ides, design, source, working with industry, branding and so on.

Have a lovely weekend x

Hi Lovelies!

I´ve been so busy the last week, as I´m finishing my trimester at uni Wednesday next week. Which means, I have three final assessments to finalise, and two presentations. I got my designs back from my maker last week, super happy with the result, did my photo shoot this Saturday. Feel like I got most things under control, which funny enough makes me stressed. The fact that I got everything under control, makes me feel like there must be something that have to go wrong, haha.. Stupid uni stress. Anyway I  wanted to share a few photos from the shoot, to show you guys what I´ve made.

My brand is a ethical boho-luxe label, so my goal is to only use recycled /vintage and organic natural materials.

Hope you are making sure you are not stressing to much, whether it is with work, uni, personal life or all of them

Accessories is always fun to play around with, to dress an outfit up or down, making a statement or maybe feeling a bit less naked? I´m sure I´ve had some accessories for at least 5 – 6 years, as I hate throwing out. Thankfully I have a little sister, who have always been happy to take over.

I believe it is better to have less, because there will always be those favourite pieces that you will use over and over again, and simply we humans over consume on almost anything.


These are my 4 favourites jewellery pieces

Feather necklace  I´ve had since high school. The burberry bangle was bought on the airport in London after visiting a friend about 3 years ago. My watch I bought in Paris 4 years ago. The ring I got from work just when I started there, about 7 months ago.

Do you have any favourite pieces that you never grow tired off?

Hi everyone,

hope you are spending your time more wisely than going on a mental shopping spre today, as it is the so called Black Friday. Such a silly American concept if you ask me. I have spent quality time with a friend outside, enjoying the blue ocean and our green surroundings. Hopefully you decide to spend your time more wisely today, see the beauty in the free things around you, maybe consider boikotting this crazy shopping day, appreciate the things you already have in your life.


Sorry for bad image quality, due to our camera going dead on our weekend away.

I just love my cute swimsuit / bodysuit from a small label called Love Stories, they have the cutest underwear and swimwear of really high quality. It is so worth investing a little extra for good quality products that is made well.

Hope you enjoy you weekend consciously

Happy Wednesday everyone!

We had a great little adventure this past weekend, to Jervis Bay, a lovely 3h drive from Sydney. City life can really strangle you if you don´t get yourself out amongst beautiful nature. Jervis Bay offered just what we needed, a great scenic drive, one of the whitest beach in the world, dolphins and great nature hikes.

Unfortunately we forgot our camera charger, so most images from this weekend are phone taken.

– Good Monday everyone –

“One Small Positive Thought In The Morning, Can Change Your Whole Day”

We just got back to Sydney after a great weekend spent in Jervis Bay, away from traffic, city noise and stress surroundings. My body has been filed up with new energy and motivation for the next coming weeks.

Have a great Monday lovelies, hope you managed to fill up your bodies as well

Happy Friday everyone!

Hope your week has been as productive as mine, less than three weeks til my second last trimester at uni is over, which means; MY HEAD IS SPINNING AROUND.

As I´m studying fashion design and branding, I do not have to physically make my designs my self, I will do all the fabric & material sourcing, build the brand, folios, logo, design the collection, organise photoshoot, meet and communicate my designs with my makers and so on.

img_20161116_210227 2016-11-17-04-18-26-1

Sustainable and ethical fashion is a major part of my fashion brand, which means I´m only sourcing natural fabrics, as much organic as I can find and the best part; finding beautiful vintage garments to reuse for my designs.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend ahead, Jens and I are going away this weekend, will share some photos with you guys soon x

Hi Lovelies!

I wanted to share a complete vintage look with you guys this week. Buying second hand or vintage is a great way to keep a unique style, purchase high-end products at an affordable price and the most important be more ethical.

pb160002 pb160001
Fashion is so much more than just a piece of clothing that makes you feel good or that keeps you warm. It has been made by someone, somewhere. It is time that we showed more appreciation.

pb160010 pb160013

Hopefully you´ll be inspired to buy more vintage and second hand fashion

Enjoy the rest of your week

My coconut obsession is unreal, if you know me well, you know what I´m talking about.

I swear to it.

Coconut oil is so amazing for your body and skin, for your inside and the outside.

Lately I´ve started making my own coconut oil blend, with only three simple ingredients that makes the oil just so much better.


Organic Coconut Oil – Lavender Essential Oil – Fresh Lavender
