Happy International Women´s day, all girls around the world.
This is an important day! A day for celebration but also a day for reflection and thinking.
We´ve come quiet far in some countries (mostly Western) in terms of equality between men and women, but we still have far more to go (did you for instance know that there are more females that study photography, but still the majority of the industry consist of men. They get most of the jobs and the best paid jobs. Just as a little example).
There are sadly also countries where women more or less don´t have any rights at all.
This is definitely not a blog about politics, but I see myself as a feminist (and no, I don´t hate men!!) and think women´s rights and equality between men and women is essential.
Should´nt we really have achieved more, I mean we´re in 2014?
I honestly think this is something that should be considered and reflected every day. Not just once a year.
What are your thoughts?

If you haven´t heard the name I reckon the “flashing-over-the-highway-shot” looks familiar. A photo shot by the fantastic Cass Bird. A lady who´s photography looks careless, youthful and loving. Her work also tends to challenge the relationship between gender and identity which she depicts in a very spontaneous and honest way.
Check out her website or blog to see more fabulous work.

In the middle of one of the most hectic periods this semester, I have now managed to get a really bad cold / flu. Such bad luck. Every little inch of my body hurts and I can barely move.. There is however no time for me to stay in my bed at all because there are too much stuff that needs to be sorted out. No rest for this girl!
Yesterday I spent 8 hours (with a fever) learning how to make lithography prints. In the end I was absolutely exhausted but it was worth it! So much fun. On Thursday I will continue with printing processes, but then I´m going to learn another process called monogram. Excited!
Hence my cold the only photos I have to offer today are the outfit photos above, shot by Élena last week. A quite windy day as you can see.
Well, I´m soon off to a meeting regarding our exhibition in May so have to get ready now.
Have a good Wednesday guys, stay healthy!

On Thursday when I posted the editorial starring Lykke Li I realised that I´ve never made “a gal to google”-post with her.
So, today it´s about Lykke Li. As most Swedes she sports a raw, minimalistic and androgynous style.
Little colours, little fuss. As mysterious and dark as her music.
She also has this special charisma which adds a whole lot more edge to it.
Google her and get inspired!
I bumped into a photo montage made by the brilliant visual multi media artist / illustrator Jesse Draxler while doing some research a few days ago. I instantly fell for his style and had to check out more of his work which mainly consist of hand crafted photo montages and collages. You don´t find a lot of hand crafted photo collages these days so I find this truly inspiring and of high quality!
Would´nt mind having some of his collages hanging on my wall..
Check out more of his work here.
It´s the last day of the week and I´m going to spend the day stuffing myself with “fastelavensboller” and do research at the library. Deadlines are sneaking up on me.

Spring is almost here. The cherry blossoms and tulips are in full bloom, the sun is shining but it is however slightly too chilly to start wearing thin spring coats and jackets.
Luckily I can pair up my woollen blazer and turtleneck and voila – I´m good to go!
As usual I´m not combining lots of colours, but to me the subtile stripes on the blazer is enough.
Wish you all a fantastic Saturday, use it wise!
I woke up waay to late and am in a rush as we speak (in a true Thea manner..)
Finally, finally it´s mine! On Tuesday I got this sleek top in a pretty, little box delivered on my door and now I am a happy owner of the most perfect, versatile silk camisole from Tibi.
Will sport it with everything from tailored trousers to shorts.
It´s been on my wish list since last year but it was worth the wait – at least I know I will use it when I´ve been craving it for such a long time.
Ps. Turns out my day did´nt become that hectic after all. My meeting was post poned and the presentation went well. Now – pub time!
