Weekly round-up #2

Here’s another little round-up of my past week following my Scandinavian adventures as a fashion intern. Catch up on last weeks round-up right here471319c3f906cd41e969e90ebd46e6d4

Starting top left to bottom right:
The week kicked off with a fun shooting we had with the lead singer of the band Savages, Jehnny Beth. She’s super pretty and everything went really well, but obviously I was most excited to take a little peek into the make-up artist’s beauty bag. Foundation wise she used a mix of MAC’s Face and Body and the Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk bases, which worked great due to the fact that neither contain an SPF.

A quick outfit shot featuring my H&M velour leather slip-ons, an old blouse from Dutch department store De Bijenkorf, plain black trousers by H&M and a knee-length cardigan by Cubus. I’ve loved this combination for the current weather where it’s quite chilly in the mornings but warms up nicely during lunch hours.

I just really cannot get over how gorgeous this city is!The architecture, the details, how everything looks stunning against the blue skies we’ve had for the past weeks. I don’t think I’ll ever get sick of the beauty Stockholm comprises.

Here you have a little sneak peek at Wednesday’s post: I played a little bit with make-up and this is what I ended up with on my face. If you’re interested in the products I used, stay tuned!

Another city shot, they just are too pretty not to be featured. This one was taken on my way to the Museum of Modern Arts on the island Skeppsholmen. I walked over the bridge connecting it to the heart of Stockholm and just when I was halfway through the perfect image composed: A crown on the bridge, afternoon lighting, the beautiful houses in the back and a little tourist boat. It almost looks like its painted, don’t you think?

Mentioned museum was really nice! I initially only went there to buy one of the famous Warhol prints as they are exclusive to sale in the museum shop, but then thought it was a bit disgraceful not to visit the museum itself as well. The main exhibition was on Nils Dardel, a swedish expressionist from the 19th century.

On sunday a couple of friends and I took advantage of the amazing weather and went to a flea market located right at one of the beaches of Stockholm. I didn’t buy anything but it was a nice atmosphere and lots of young and hip people.

Actually when I said I didn’t buy anything I lied. This wrap from a food truck was DELICIOUS! Especially the coriander dip that neutralized the spiciness of the Chicken Tikka – wish I could get this in the shops. Yum yum yummmm!

Since moving here I have made it a Sunday ritual to apply a face mask and then catch up on my favorite YouTubers with a nice cuppa.


What is your sunday ritual and what are you looking forward to do this week?
