Weekend Reading

I’m finally back and settled in Paris again after an absolutely wonderful time in a super chilly and stormy New York. It feels really good being back home even though I also miss New York of course. Two very different cities, but both very exciting and interesting in their own ways.

•   I couldn’t be any prouder of my little sister Sara who finally launched her amazing illustration collaboration with the clothing brand Vero Moda this week. Can you believe it? She’s so incredibly talented. Visit Vero Moda for the whole story and Sara‘s own blog right here.
•   Even though I’m not in London or Milan for fashion week this time (which is totally okay since I feel quite exhausted after NYC) around I almost feel like I am when following along through photos thanks to and Tommy Ton.
•   If you read Swedish by any chance, you can check out my little Paris guide for Ving! A couple of my favourites in the French capital.
•   I adored this (very helpful) post by my dear friend Lindsey about a few Parisian food myths that I think anyone traveling to Paris should glance at.

… And for anyone interested in some non-online reading this weekend I’m so excited to see my photos of Nicole printed in the latest issue of the Australian magazine Renegade Collective (please excuse the crappy iPhone photo).

    Ahh wow you must be so proud Carin! It must seem slightly surreal seeing your beautiful work in printed magazines. Glad to hear you’re back in Paris :)

    Thank you for your breathtaking photos of New York in the snow. Living here, I was more focused about how sloppy and inconvenient it was, but you reminded me of its magical beauty as well…
