Swedish brand marketing manager at Weekday, Elinor Nystedt is a lady with a style to envy. She manage to make outfits with a fine balance between masculine and feminine pieces, timeless and modern staples. Simply just google her when lack of inspiration occurs!
The very last drop of my perfume was consumed the day before I left Norway and I have since then been drooling over one of Byredo´s scents. I find the design on the perfume bottles and of course their smell extremely appealing. Very subtle and delicate.
So, when me and my cousin finally went to Liberty on Monday I simply couldn’t resist buying a new perfume. Or perfume oil that is in fact. Totally fell for the smell called `Gypsy Water´. With top notes of bergamot, heart note of orris and base notes of vanilla and amber. It´s divine!

Woke up early yesterday and took the train to Hackney with Emily, to leave my art piece at the gallery. Luckily I didn’t have to hang the work myself and therefore decided to eat lunch in Hoxton. Ended up at Fabrique with a massive cardamum bun and a lovely cappuccino. Fabrique has by the way the very best cinnamon and cardamum buns in London! The locale is also extremely charming and is conveniently located right next to Hoxton station – tip, tip!
And a little reminder: The exhibition I’m participating in ‘Aesthetic: 12 artists ● 12 perceptions’ is opening tonight. It’s held at The Old Baths in Hackney Wick. Don’t hesitate to visit! Lots of great artists will be displaying a great amount of varied work; photography, sculpture, drawing, painting and performance.

Layers, volume and boxy shapes – yes please!
Exciting news! I will be one out of twelve artists displaying work at an upcoming exhibition in East London called `Aesthetic – 12 Artists – 12 Perceptions´. Pop by The Old Baths in Hackney Wick between 18th – 25th October if you wanna have look!
Major weekend tip: eat brunch at Ace Hotel´s brasserie Hoi Polloi.
Located in the heart of Shoreditch High Street this little gem is easy to find and comes in handy if you would like to have a stroll in Shoreditch afterwards.
With the name Hoi Polloi meaning `the many´ in Greek, it has set the standard for the menu: varied and something for everyone´s taste – serving everything from breakfast to supper and cocktails. Personally I will recommend the buttermilk pancakes with bacon and maple syrup (and ask for berries to come with it!), super delicious. The Eggs Benedict is also prima.
With its interior inspired by mid-twentieth century European bistros and `Sunday Strings by Xavior´ (live string music) this is the ideal spot to spend a relaxed Sunday with good friends. Pop by That Flower Shop before leaving, to get your hands on the mandatory “weekend bouquet” and for an inspiration boost.

I find this editorial utterly charming and beautiful and simply just wanted to share it. Especially like the colour combinations!
