This is what a text message conversation can look like with Hannah. We’re the ones developing products with the chemists.
We’re developing a Day Mask for the face. So a mask that works properly with a lot of moisture and shine but also contains correcting pigment to even out the skin. An easy kind of day cream but a lot more effective. Perfect for days when you don’t want to do makeup but still have a nice and moisturised skin. When I thought about developing the mask I thought about when I had acne as a teenager and was going to sleep over at a boy’s house but didn’t want to take off my make up. I would have needed something like this, a day mask that gives you and even colour and is nurturing.
It’s incredible! Like satin on the skin. It’s a special kind of joy when we’ve succeeded with a product after many attempts.
I just realised something when I crawled into bed with my laptop after putting the kids to bed…I’ve been evening-blogging every day for 13 years. And for all of my adult life. Insane. Many of you have been following me for ten years. Through boyfriends, apartments, companies, friends, wardrobes, crisis and success.
Sometimes I think about what makes you stay. Regardless I’m happy for it.
This was my outfit today, a lot of internal meetings at the office. Blouse from Zara, bag from Chanel (I love it!), skirt and scarf in my hair from Stylein.
I think Emelie’s half-ups on me are so lovely. It looks a bit like a Brigitte Bardot hairdo.
Hermine Hold is going to be launched in February. The team hired for the company are in China right now. They are testing the material in silk which has been a success. It makes me really happy. It’s always scary kickstarting something and then hand it over to a new organisation and CEO who are going to take care of everything. I think this is where my lack of control-need and ability to hand out tasks makes it possible to expand in so many ways. Otherwise everything could have stopped.
And before the comment section goes bananas (I know you guys), it’s a new Hermes bracelet I got as a gift during this tough period. The watch and bracelet have been returned to the people dealing with his bankruptcy. I’ve returned every single present I got after June.
Speaking of fronts, Sascha and Elin (founder of Stylein we are co-owners of) are going to launch an Isabella collection. ALL clothes Sascha always pick for me will be available. And it will be available exclusively with Ellos. It will be SO GOOD.
I picked up the kids around 4 and then went home. I love each and every nook and cranny.
The first thing I do when I wake up is wash my face/shower and get dressed (the kids usually run down for breakfast with the girls). That’s why I wanted a Nespresso machine upstairs so I don’t have to go down. So good!
I’m going to work for a while longer but I have a 9.30 deadline. I saw my therapist today and she reminded me to have evenings off for the sake of recovery. Easy to forget. I also asked her if I’m falling into a depression but after today’s conversation we confirmed that at the moment I’m just processing grief.
That was good to hear.
It was such a lovely feeling yesterday when it got dark outside and we lit candles at home. The home-team had made everything lovely with a Christmas tree and advent candles. It’ll be a very lovely and cosy Christmas at home.
Today I thought I’d inspire you with a truly Christmassy post from myself and Ellos. Yesterday we set the dinner table with a christmas theme and it looked like this. I’ve said before I want to host more dinners at home and I want lovely tablet sets for it. Ida and I talked yesterday and decided it helps to think more outside the box. add something that feels more unexpected that pretty. Like our gingerbread cut outs from yesterday. Do you set your Christmas table in a spacial way. Fun with inspo.
After having attended Christmas brunch with work and worn the little black dress I showed last week in New York, I want to go home, light the fire and put on more cosy and comfortable clothes. The dress isn’t available with Ellos anymore but if you’re lucky there might still be one left in our Pop Up shop at Gallerian in Stockholm. These kind of clothes are really good for the evening and they’re also available from Ellos. Here you can find the shirt, pants and slippers .
If you haven’t seen it, I’ve got my own page with Ellos where I’ve collected my favourites with Sascha and Ida. Here you can find Selected by Isabella. Ellos also have a campaign called 48H Only and it gives you 40% off the most expensive product. It includes other brands as well. The code is 385728 and is valid from tomorrow.
