PARIS IN 48H

Paris February 2017

LAST weekend my brother Richard came to Paris to hang out. It was about +15 C degree and sunshine so it really felt like the first spring days were here. We sort of enjoyed it to max – introduced the outdoors terraces, coffee in the parks and strolling all over. Below a few sweet 48 hours with us.

Min lillebrorsa Richard kom och hälsade på mig förra helgeni Paris, då det var +15 C och sol. Snacka om att det blev att njuta till max – invigning av utomhusterasser, kaffe i parken och flanera över hela stan!  Nedan kommer 48 timmars med oss!

BAG NOTES

Givenchy bag

SAY bonjour to my spring bag Pandora!

What I love about this bag is the size and its adjustable strap, you can wear it on the shoulder or as a cross body. Simply perfect for work! Then of course there’s a tiny detail that makes me secretly smile, which actually makes all the difference, and it’s the red pipings. Look they’re so delicate!

SUNDAY COFFEE

Paris February 2016

BONJOUR from one of my favorite coffee spots in Paris!

In my neighbourhood I have the cutest coffee shop Claus on 14-15 rue Jean-Jacques Rousseau, which is the perfect whole in the wall for zipping on a cappuccino (or even an almond capp if you’d prefer) or why not bounce over to their larger branch across the street. Probably the most stylish and blog friend brunch there is in Paris, and the food – even better than the photos!

RIP GINO

 

YOU might be wondering why I haven’t been active for a while but below happened. So tonight I’m cherishing all the unforgettable moments we shared together with your family that you welcomed me into.

“I’m near you! …sort of. Merry Christmas! xx Gino.” We talked on Tuesday the week before it all happened. You were also in Costa Rica to celebrate Christmas. We were so close to meet up but yet it turned out that we were still miles away from each other. The roads are pretty bumpy over there and doesn’t always connect… If I only would have known it be our last time, I would have made it happen. Gosh this hurts. I actually don’t know where to start? The message reach me when I was walking out of the subway. I started to cry on the street, in the winter darkness. There was  just a big whole inside of me. “How? When? Why?”, where natural questions that started to pop up in my head. I know you where struggling but I just wouldn’t believe it.

You were always full of energy and life. LIFE. Gino was the true definition of life, joy and happiness. But you were still so down to earth, so true, so warm and so much fun. “Did he make everyone feel this special, needed and loved?” I ask myself. Yes, I genuinely think so.

Gino was one of my closer friends in New York, and when I moved there he introduced me to two of my closet friends Meggie and Jessica and many more meaningful people in my life. It’s funny because it’s not often you meet your best girl friends through a guy. Gino was one of them that only wanted the best out of you and for you. One evening when he was hosting one of his legendary parties at his lavish apartment on 8th Ave, he grabbed me and said: “You need to hang out with this girl, you two would make good friends” and one hour later Meggie took my number and we continued to party away at Soho House. Well, the rest is history.

Besides finding friends for me, he was also my friend. Whenever I was down or when I moved from NYC (against my will), he always host a party for me when I was back in town. Who does that? Not even friends I know since childhood would. His heart was just so BIG and maybe too good. This is one of the first time I lose someone close and it just hurts so much. I don’t think anything else for the moment makes sense.

What I’m impeccably happy over is all these amazing memories we have to cherish together 2009-2016. Thank you for letting me part of your family. I love you Gino Gareza

Below some of my favorite moments together with you and your family.


NI undrar säkert varför jag inte skrivit på ett tag, men när en nära vän oväntat går bort slutar världen på något vis att snurra. Många saker blir obetydliga och du zoonar ut, gräver ner dig i jobb tills det inte går mer. Jag har inte världens ork i natt att översätta min engelska text och jag hoppas att det är ok. Som ni säkert förstår är det min magiska vän Gino Gareza från New York som har gått bort.

Jag är så oerhört tacksam över att fått lära känna denna otroliga man och att jag fick vara del av hans familj 2009-2016.

Nedan kommer ett blandband av min favoritstunder med honom och vår familj.

OFF-WHITE F/W 17

OFF WHITEEVEN thought it’s Men’s Fashion and Haute Couture Week in Paris at the moment, some brands are mixing up their runways with Women’s Ready-to-Wear pieces. A favorite that I mainly been admiring for Men’s RTW actually walked off some really sharp looks. Off White’s four ladies above are show how I wanna dress today, everyday. I’m sort of high on these outfits.

ÄVEN om det är Men’s Fashion och Haute Couture Week in Paris just nu, är det en hel del märken mixar upp visningar med dammode. En stor favorit just nu, som jag mest avundas för hans herrmode, slank in några riktigt skarpa looks i sin visning. Off-Whites fyra damer ovanför visar hur jag vill klä mig idag, ja varje dag. Rätt hög på alla dessa oufits.

NEW YEAR’S EVE

Costa Rica Dec 16

WE had bought a bottle of champagne and we were prepared to celebrate New Year’s Eve on plane. When we arrived at the airport we found out that the flight was 5 hours late. So what did we do? Well, we drove into San José and went for dinner at the most amazing Argentine restaurant La Esquina de Buenos Aires. We had the best Margaritas I ever had in my life. Then about 1 am we board the plane and welcome 2017. A pretty different New Year, but we why not? I hope you were at some amazing soirée in a stunning outfit!

VI hade köpt en flaska skumpa och vi var redo att fira nyårsafton på flyget. När vi anlände på flygplatsen fick vi reda på att flyget var mer än fem timmar försenat. Så vad gjorde vi? Vi drog in till San José för att hitta den mysigaste argentinska resturang någonsin, La Esquina de Buenos Airesmed typ världens bästa margaritas. Runt ettsnåret var det tillslut dags att boarda och välkomna 2017. Ett rätt annorlunda nyår, men varför inte? Jag hoppas att du var på en magisk fest i en het blåsa!

COSTA RICA DAY 6

Costa Rica Dec 16

OUR last morning in the jungle we found a cute place called Emilio’s Café, with this incredible viewThey had fresh smoothies, gluten free waffles and soya capp, which I of course I all had. The rest of the day I just spent under the palms reading. That was about it!

DEN sista morgonen in djungel blev det frukost på Emilio’s Café, som hade denna fantastiska utsikt. De hade även smoothies, glutenfria våfflor och sojacappuccino, vilket jag så klart allt beställde. Resten av dagen tillbringade jag under palmerna med min bok och bara njöt. Det var typ allt.
