Two and a half years ago I met my Danish lush bearded boyfriend while working on a project in Stockholm. He was intense and funny, and I fell for him like a little a little kitty trying to balance on the laundry basket edge...Read More
The other day I came across something rather upsetting about myself. I realized that even though i have all these big dreams and wishes, my belief that they actually could ever come true was on a bit of a shaky ground . It was one of those “Shit, have I lost my belief? When did that happen, and where did I leave it?”.
I remembered a blog post I read many years ago (that I can't find anymore ugh) that was about making your own magic spell list...Read More
Look, I'm not a perfectionist when it comes to many things in life. I rarely shave my legs regularly (even in the Summer), I'm really lazy when it comes to putting the lid back on things, and if you'd see the chaos in our fridge you'd understand why my boyfriend thinks I'm a messy little piggy.
But, one thing I am quite perfectionist with is my creative work. That's why, even though I must have snapped thousands of photos last year, a very small fraction of them actually made the cut...Read More

Right now the only thing I know for certain is that In 3 months time I will be living in a new home in a different country. But, the thing I don't know is where in the world that will be. So, the year 2018 definitely seems like it could turn into an interesting one.
I moved to Sweden 2 years ago because I fell in love, yup the oldest tale in the book :), and the reason we've stayed in Stockholm...Read More
We're here again. I've got my head buried in a pile of pillows on the couch and I'm taking short intense breaths. On the inside I feel like smashing something to pieces and jump and run and scream really loud all at the same time.
Yet, I remain completely still on the couch, like a bag of potatoes (style note: not one of those boring brown colored bags of potatoes, but one with a floral pink pyjamas and fluffy grey sweater). Yes, this my friend, is what my creative frustrations and failures look like...Read More
So we've all heard it a million times, "Follow your heart, dream big, make it happen!", "Be the girl who decided to go for it!", and so on. Growing up I always thought that in order to become successful you have to choose one thing and stick with it. Like so many others I believed that going after your dreams meant completely devoting yourself to that one special thing, and that straying away from that chosen path was a sign of weakness and lack of determination...Read More
