I’ve spent the last few days unpacking and getting settled here in London. It feels so great to be back, I feel infused with new life! I think the Scandinavian culture is more similar to the British than the French, and as much as I enjoy Monaco I feel more at home in London. I love the British afternoon tea, their awkward sense of humour and their genuine polite way of being. I’m sure I will miss the sunshine at some point, but for now I’m in a tizzy over being back in London!

I’m so pleased with this leather skirt I found in the sales, I’m sure you’ll see plenty of it on the blog in the coming weeks, the styling possibilities of leather are endless! And I think I’m having a thing for messy hair at the moment! I’m really enjoying the ease of just tossing it together and heading out, and I love the effortless look of it!
Hope you’re having a great Monday! Let me know what you think of the look in the comment section! X
Last week I shared fun and game changing favourites from the sales, but what is a wardrobe without basics? Basics are what brings it all together, or, worn on their own, the epitome of “less is more”. Despite what your inner Carrie might have to say, basics are actually what we wear most. A polyester blouse has nothing on a silk blouse. Don’t get me started on leather and cashmere..

The sale is going so fast things are selling out as I’m typing. I will let you off without any unnecessary excess writing.. just the basics.
I hope you’ve had a great start to the new week and that the nefarious Monday has been kind to you.
Feeling a little under the weather this weekend I opted for very chilled attire and a messy bun when visiting one of my favourite places outside of Monaco, Villefranche. There is a little restaurant situated right by the waterfront that serves wonderful seafood with great views over Cap-Ferrat, called La Mere Germaine – it is a must if you’re in Villefranche. I find Villefranche such a beautiful and tranquil place, and the location of La Mere Germaine couldn’t be better for a long relaxing lunch of seafood and white wine after a stroll along the water.
These jeans are about 5 years old, and though some of the holes were intended, new holes and tears have appeared naturally over the years giving them that natural distressed look and soft feel. The “boyfriend jeans”-trend returns year after year and I’m certain it will continue to surface for years to come.
I like the legs to be casually rolled up, preferably asymmetrical, and as imperfect as can be. Looks just as good with flats as with heels, depending on the style you are going for.
I hear the weather is being tricky all over Europe. We had just finished our lunch when it started to rain.. In Norway we call that fortune in misfortune.

I’m thrilled to be reunited with the blog again as it has been immensely missed since I had to shut it down last summer. I can’t wait to get going again and I hope you will enjoy it too. I am so grateful for all the emails and notes you’ve written me – it means so much to me. Thank you!
With a lot on my plate the blog won’t be updated just as frequently this time around but I will strive to create a relaxing and inspirational blog to turn to for inspiration in all things fluffy. Fun times ahead! Most old posts are gone, but I will probably write much of the same as previously, but perhaps with a new spin. People change, and so have I and I’m sure you’ve changed too. Change is good!
During busy days I understand the need of ease of use and so I have replaced daunting text archives with photo galleries for tutorials, outfits and recipes to easily find what you are looking for when time is of the essence.
I have also dedicated a space for recently found favourites of both basics and exclusives, as well as vintage and beauty items among others. Naturally, this is my favourite place on the blog and I hope you will like it too.
I hope the blog will bring you inspiration and brighten your day, and I look forward to seeing you around.
