Earth Hour

Preparing for the green hour,
turning off lights and all electricity, 
lighting the candles..

Remember that the real important thing 
is to learn how to live sustainable 
and prevent the environmental problems 
every day, for the rest of our lives!

is the way I'm feeling right now..and a bit stressed. So here is something blue and pretty instead, another sign of spring.
The thought of spring and summer cheers me up.. a little bit.. But I bet that it will feel a lot better soon, because next week it's Easter! (And I will have finished in time with different school projects, I hope.)

Scilla Siberica
Siberian Squill is the English name for this flower 
or Scilla/Rysk blåstjärna as it's called in Swedish.

Hope you're having a lovely day!

To be the best

Tenacious D is back, and one of the best
is going to help them get their sound back.
 The one, the only.. Dave Grohl! ;)

 Looking forward to hear the new album and
Dave's drumming skills on it.

Just needed to spread the word/music!

Going through old stuff.. Today I've looked trough boxes of toys, paintings, children books, clothes and more... So many memories and a lot of it is actually providing inspiration.

But it's not possible nor practical to keep everything, and a lot of the things you don't want to keep. So I believe I'm going to fill up a few garbage bags and also sell a few things.

I'm going Heidi Klum on these toys..
"One day you're in, the next day you're out!
 Auf wiedersehen!"

(But my first love, this yellow rabbit is definitely a keeper..!)

Because of the lack of inspiration right now to work on my school assignments and projects. I've decided that it's a perfect time to clean, organize and sort out things that aren't "in use" anymore. Dull, tiring?! Not at all! It's fun and afterwards you feel harmony inside and in your home!

Making room for more ideas.. 

And if you're doing the same for the moment, don't just throw things in the trash. Maybe you can sell it or give it to someone who wants/needs it more.

I love to go on flea markets and jumble/yard sales, you can truly find things that will lift your interior design and style. But sometimes maybe it needs a bit of help, just see the opportunities.. Like this sewing box that I found on a flea market a few years back, I just painted and fixed it, and it's perfect for my make up!

When you want to organize - boxes, boxes, boxes..!

Personalize your home 
by choosing boxes 
that matches your style.

Horror Sketch No.1

This is the first sketch of one of the "Horror theme" images, I'm not that into sketching monsters, for me the dark water is more frightening.. The final result with ink and more shadows will of course give a more dramatic effect.

By Hand

Continuing on the structure/texture part.. This is my hand, I can assure you I'm not as hairy or spotted as a leopard though!

The test was - work with different structure/texture, contrast and mood. We could choose the style of the drawing and how we wanted it to look all on our own, as long as we were drawing our own hand.

The creepy and funny thing was that me and a girl in my class almost drew identical interpretation of the assignment.. Same use of green stripes in the background, leopard fur and the same mood on the expression of the hand, cramping..! We were sitting wide apart - not walking by each other or talking, nor were we talking out loud to somebody else about what we were doing..

That's crazy, but maybe it's true.. 
Great minds think alike! :)

Music Makes Me


Right now the song giving me inspiration 
is this one!

Enjoy & have a great weekend!

Today's Red Light!

Please STOP making lazy and stupid choices, people! 
I saw a young girl taking the elevator, to go up one floor.. Come on!!? 

(I know her, and know that she's fully capable to take the stairs instead.)

Please choose the healthier way by taking the stairs, and also save the energy/electricity for the sake of the environment!

Corsica dreamin'..

With everything I have to, want to and need to do for the moment - It's nice to daydream a bit, just to get a break from reality. And I started to look at some pictures from the time I worked on the island Corsica.

If you're planning a vacation in Europe this summer, La Corse - is wonderful! So many things to do like hiking and climbing. The smells from the nature and from all the good food. Corsica really has it all with it's high mountains, rich and green valleys, the cleansing fresh rivers and the ocean. (Really clear water so it's perfect if you like snorkeling and diving.. Outside the coast of Calvi, a B-17 bomber plane crashed in 1944 so almost everyday you can go on diving tours to see it.)

I found one of the best sushi restaurants I've ever tried. A restaurant called "Loria" in Île Rousse, and also it's situated in on the beach with a beautiful view of the ocean.

It's a must to rent a car while on the island, that way you get the best out of your vacation and the island! Then you can visit all the beautiful cities, experience the nature and get access to the best beaches. Don't miss Bonifacio, the southern tip of Corsica, with it's chalk-white limestone-sculpted into unusual shapes by the ocean.
If you're renting a car, get full insurance and waiver on the car(not because the traffic is crazy, but because if you get a scratch on the car the car renting companies are meticulous at checking the car when you return it!)

It's Retro! - Wallet

I have a lot of wallets - a collection of wallets actually. Big and small, different colors and designs, new and old. My wallet is something I like to change from day to day - so it's good to have a variety of some..

And since I don't want to buy NEW stuff often, I found the perfect solution to my need!

I found these retro wallets on the internet (here),

made out of recycled vintage fabrics 
in cool retro patterns!

AW of STHLM - Exclusive Organic Clothes

A friend recommended AW of STHLM to me, and I want to spread the word..
It's a website that offers clothes of really good quality, exclusive style and the most important it's clothes made from organic materials only.

The concept to be able to buy fantastic style and design, with a clean conscious - is an idea that the two friends and founders came up with, after hearing people complain about how hard it is to get good.locking and fashionable organic clothes.

Well it's not any more 

Organic Clothing and Fair Trade/Enviromental principles
The primary thing of the organic methods to produce cotton and other materials, is to do it without the use of synthetic fertilizers and pesticides. If you choose organic clothing you're taking a stand against our environmental problems. As we know now global warming is more a fact than a probability, so to think about what we wear is a "greener" lifestyle and a necessity. 
Organic materials are grown toxinfree, reducing the amount of toxic chemicals we ingest and release into the earth. The employees working with the growing of cotton and the locals in the nearby area for example, are safe and without toxic exposure. The workers also get benefits, equal employment opportunities and more, thanks to the fair trade principles that are embodied in the organic clothing development and environmental principles. 
So by choosing organic clothing, you're doing something good for the environment and for humanity.

These jeans are perfect for the spring, 
I love slims like these..!
The brand, Kuyichi, is the first in the world to produce organic jeans from organic materials! (If you want to check out more on what the different materials are, 
they have good info: Kuyichi - Sustainable Concepts)

..together with these shoes, for every pair you buy of this brand(Faguo Shoes)a tree gets planted! 
So you can (and should..) buy many! 

And this dress is a favourite piece! 
So simple and beautiful design with a flattering figure.
I hope to see more women's wear on the site though, because it's the perfect concept for people in the present and the future. It's a webshop with really great brands and a perfect sense of style! To all men (the men's wear is hot..!) and women circling the internet, check this website out right away!

Thanks, Jens Aronsson and Mikael Windh at AW of STHLM 
for bringing a great idea to life and sharing great sustainable clothes with the rest of us.
I hope you guys inspire more people to think about what they're wearing!

Jean Giraud - Moebius Dead

A great comic book artist and writer died yesterday. Jean Giraud a.k.a. Moebius, was a French comic book artist. To reach the international acclaim as Moebius did, is something one can only dream about! (And I do!)

His art, illustrations, stories and style have affected and stunned people in this industry and others. The work he for example has done and inspired to in Hollywood, in sci-fi and fantasy movies. He worked with a lot of talented people in different genres. He made the illustrations of Paulo Coelho's novel The alchemist, and when the author heard about the death of Moebius, he tweeted:

"Your body died today, your work is more alive than ever."

And I think that says it all.. Rest in Peace.
