Film still from “Persona” (1966) directed by Ingmar Bergman
Swedish icon, actress and beauty Bibi Anderson, is definitely worth checking out (if you haven’t already). Especially in Bergman´s classic “Persona” – where she is dressed super simple yet tremendously appealing. The focus lays on timeless quality basics like dark, simple, fitted maxi dresses, big glamorous straw hats, turtlenecks and classic raincoats. The attired combines Scandinavian practicality and French effortlessly chic.
Watch the film or google this gal to get inspired.

This week seen through my iPhone´s lens / Instagram profile.
Pssst! It’s been rather quiet here lately due to a hectic period at the university etc. I update my Instagram two-three times a days, so opt for that instead if you’d like more frequent updates.
A taste of summer: prawns, mayonnaise, dill, lemon juice, salad, white loaf and apple/eldflower juice.
I felt my room needed an update while staying at home in Norway, so I strolled to town one day and bought myself three sublime plants to sheer up the ever so monochrome space. Ended up with a cactus, a succulent and a hyacinth. Placed them neatly on a marble tray and vóila – a hint of spring and colour entered the room.

Photo number one was removed by Instagram twice. This was Kaur´s comment to the action:
“Thank you Instagram for providing me with the exact response my work was created to critique. You deleted my photo twice stating that it goes against community guidelines. I will not apologize for not feeding the ego and pride of misogynist society that will have my body in underwear but not be okay with a small leak. When your pages are filled with countless photos/accounts where women (so many who are underage) are objectified, pornified, and treated less than human. Thank you.”
Does social media treat women and men equal? Not so much. Does social media affect culture, how we look at ourselves and how we look at other peole? Yes indeed.
Just a little reminder on how far away gender equality really is, even in Western countries. But thank god for women like Rupi Kaur. Hopefully she made a trend which will evolve and in the end make a change.
