Books For Christmas

Partnered with Adlibris

It’s so much fun to have a new partner for the blog. This time I’ll be working with Adlibris! And when I don’t buy online it’s cosy to visit their shop at Kungsgatan and look at all the books on the shelf. For Christmas, books are a perfect present. I am buying new books for GIllis and Sally which we will be reading before bedtime. A few of the ones I’ve chose are Important Maps for Adventurers and Daydreamers.  It’s fun because it’s a book about facts written for kids. It’ll be cosy to dive into different places throughout the world and not have to leave the bed. I’ve also chosen Christmas in Bullerbyn and Pippis Christmas By Astrid. I love reading fairy tales to the kids that I read as a kid. That book will be perfect for Christmas time.  The Super hero handbook  will also fit right in.

My Story  by Michelle Obama is a book I’m looking forward to reading. The book Alcohol free option for food  is what I’m going to use a lot during 2019. At the moment I’m loving fresh Virgin Mary and for food I have something a bit dryer.

A Big Sorrow

Jag är verkligen sänkt. Jag är så tacksam över att ha Isolina här. Men igår när hon var iväg under dagen kunde jag inte låta bli att spendera borta timmar i sängen och bara gråta i min ensamhet. Jag satte på min och H:s gemensamma playlist och vågade gå igenom oss i huvudet. Det gjorde så ont. En känsla av panik greppade dag i mig men så kom jag ihåg att en av er läsare hade skrivit att de värsta ångestkänslorna går över efter 90 sekunder så jag försökte andas igenom allt. Det fungerade. Tack.

Everything ended so suddenly against my will. It was over in one day. One moment we were texting about what to have for dinner and a few hours later I had to break it off. 18 months of intense love. 18 months that felt too good to be true. Which it also was. Do you know what the worst thing is? He is the first person I’ve ever let in for real. He described me as an onion which takes a long time to peel but I was there in the end. I loved him so much and saw him like my family. Now I’m alone with my guard down and it really hurts.

This weekend in NYC should have been ours. We were going to celebrate Christmas with the kids followed by a holiday to the Maldives. It’s not difficult to cancel the trips, but erasing us from the calendar is hard. There is no more us.

It’s so painful.

Yesterday Isolina and Hannah took me on a night out so I could think about something else. Dinner at Bellini. They had delicious (and alcohol free) Bellinis which I appreciated.

During dinner with the girls I felt happy for the moment. A lot of laughter and good conversations but it was heavy when we got to the night club.

At Socialista

I went home early, took off my makeup and cried myself to sleep. Rationally, I know it’ll get better but I also know I need to experience the grief. This wasn’t my choice at all. I was decieved and got to know a person who told me they were someone else.

This pain.

La Rouge Chanel

After saying goodbye to my team Isolina and I went to Chanel’s event for new Le Rouge no 5. The bureau we’ll probably be working with for Löwengrip in NYC organised the event so it was fun to go there and see how they worked. Everything was so well organised.

My black dress is from Ellos (new bag from Chanel and shoes Manolo Blahnik). There’s no collaboration today that I get paid for but Sascha thought it was so lovely so I’ll put it on regardless. Apparently it’s hanging at Nordic Tech House with some other dresses Sascha picked for me at the Nordic Tech House/Löwengrip pop up stall in the Galleria in Stockholm (one floor up) so go there and try it if you’d like. Otherwise you can find it here online.

I got a lot of inspiration during the event, I wrote down everything and took photographs.

I still think you can see that we’re related. We have the same body language and qualities.

I remember when I chose the manicure on Sunday at Grand Hotel, Justina said to me ”Pick something really dark but something with a bit of a shine to it when you look closely. That’s how I feel now.”

I like Le Rouge, it’s a younger and sweet version of No. 5

After that I had dinner at Cipriani Downtown. SO much to talk about! Isolina is staying with me for the weekend but this morning she went to study (Parsons). I got up at half past seven and been working from bed. I’m off to a massage soon and a face treatment at a nearby SPA. My skin has been reacting to all the stress. Then I’m going for a walk, a bit of christmas shopping and a blow dry later tonight. We’re going out for dinner around eight o’clock to meet a a few friends for food.

This morning was the first morning I woke up feeling happy after everything that happened. I needed that
