My sweet daughter turns 9 years old very soon. Her biggest wish is a cat and having her ears pierced! She won’t get either just yet! But I’m tempted to get her some of these outfits from MILK Copenhagen which she picked out – and I would happily wear them myself. Their new Spring/Summer collection is online from today and once again they have hit the right casual cool look which we both like. This is not a sponsored post – just think they did a great job! P.S they only ship to Denmark and Sweden for now.
Year of the Snake
We always spend New Years in Asia. And over the years we have come to understand just HOW BIG the Chinese New Year is to a large number of people. And we always keep track of the current animal of the year – and our Chinese signs – I’m a dog! This sunday the Chinese Calender entered the year of the Snake. And the horoscope says: We’re likely to see significant developments in the area of science and technology this year. Research and development are apt to flourish. This is a Water year as well, the element most closely associated with education and research, making 2013 a very special year for scientists and scholars. Snake is a great sign, a positive one, with energy that can help us face all of the challenges ahead of us. Read more here.
I generally like animal prints – used in small doses, and took a small tour to celebrate the year of the snake with some snake print & snake skin favourites. 1. Funky Wedge Trainers, 2. Lovely Printed mini dress by Emma Cook. 3.Mulberry shoulder bag with snake-effect, 4. Silk & Cashmere scarf by Tattoo artist Horiyoshi the Third.
Welcome Emerald – Colour of 2013
I’m a curious graphic designer and couldn’t help myself testing Pantone’s colour of 2013 – Emerald. So here is some great colour combinations and ways to use the colour on yourself or in your home – it also works really well on the web I think. Emerald is considered to be the talisman of the goddess Venus and it represents faith, goodness and kindness. They are traditionally thought to enhance the clairvoyance of their wearers. And Pantone describes it as “Lively. Radiant. Lush… A colour of elegance and beaty that enchances our sense of well-being, balance and harmony.

Tie Dye Trend
The old hippie inside me suddenly craves some Tie-Dye – after seeing the new collection of Tie Dye pillows from Bolia, and the cool t-shirts from Rabens Saloner at Ba10.dk. Strange how cool Tie Dye suddenly looks in black and white. Found the pillows here.
Wearable French Eye candy
Ohhhh these silk scarfs by french design duo Milleneufcentquatrevingtquatre – makes my heart beat a little bit faster. I can totally see myself wearing one of their pieces! So if one of my dear readers or dear Santa wishes to spend 295$ on me – then you can find all their designs here… and I promise to wear it every single day or to frame it! Aren´t they just gorgeous and totally inspiring?
Yesterday I packed my summer clothes away and dug out my winter and autumn clothes – I´m always looking forward to cover up again with cosy scarves and sweaters – and actually like the crisp autumn weather and all the colours. Right nowd I´m inspired by the styling and styles from Rabens Saloner´s new collection. See their new stylish catalogue here – and get the styles here. ( I´m not going to write anything about how fast this summer has passed – and that I really can´t believe it´s September now!)
Nice to have
Everything is on sale right now – and I´m really not a good sales shopper – I tend to buy things I like when I see them – and used to return from the sales with white shirts – (which I never wear) and scarfes (which I always wear). But lately I´ve started to ask myself if an item is a Nice to Have or a Need to Have which saves me a lot of money and a lot of wrong buys . I just browsed my favorite shop and webshop BA10 – and I found a lot of great stuff that would be Nice to Have…Maybe some of it is a Need to Have for you?
Current Colour Crush
I´m so into Pinterest at the moment – it´s the perfect place to collect eye candy – and to keep track of your new finds. And it´s been quite surprising to discover that I´m liking a lot of orange tones at the moment – since it used to be one of my least favorite colours. But combined with grey, chalk and sand colours – it´s just a perfect combination – don´t you think?

Spring Fashion 2011
When you say Spring – I say Fashion! It´s always so refreshing to update your wardrobe with new styles and new colours after a long cold winter dressed in black and grey. Here are 2 of my favorite Danish designer´s proposals for a Chic & Casual look this spring.
Photo 1+2 by Graumann. Photo 3+4 by Vadum. All found via my new favorite webshop BA10.dk – which I´ve also designed. Guess all I need now is a pair of long slim legs and warmer temperatures!
Two of a kind
Kelims are hot -again -in case you haven´t noticed – and so is this loft from New York! I love when photos just make a perfect match like here – both are via the always inspiring Milk Magazine.
