Weekend Reading

Hydrangeas by Carin Olsson (Paris in Four Months)

I bought these beautiful hydrangeas yesterday for my mom who arrived in Paris last night to pay me a little visit. I haven’t had any family members visit since I moved into my new apartment so I can’t wait to spend the weekend together.

•   Vogue Paris arrived in my mailbox this week and this editorial, shot around familiar areas in the city, caught my attention. It’s always interesting to see how other creative minds, photographers etc. sees the same corners and streets as you’re used to passing by.
•   As the red carpet freak that I am I can’t leave out the Emmys, which took place a couple of days ago. My favourite dresses could be found on Julia, Sarah, Claire, Zooey, Julianne and Sarah.
•   Another familiar area, that always makes for great strolls, is the beautiful Luxembourg garden, which Alice Gao captured so beautifully.
•   Something I miss from home is a really good blueberry crumble. I don’t care what you say, we make the best one. Although this one, shot by talented Nicole Franzen, looks pretty tasty as well.

  1. Vogue Paris editorial is unreal. So so good!

  4. I love hydrangeas and this photo is truly beautiful!

  5. I’m pretty certain I love the red carpet more than the awards themselves! Julia look PHENOMENAL. My other favorites were Lilly Caplan and Michelle Dockery.

  6. Hydrangea is my favorite flower! When I have been in Paris at the first time, my boyfriend surprised me with a hydrangea while walking down the street. I will never forget 🙂

  7. Gorgeous photo! Have a lovely weekend Carin!

    Love the flowers, but a bit unsure about the Vogue editorial, the photography was strong but the model seemed a bit lacking. She had more or less the same facial expression in every shot

  11. those luexmbourg gardens are stunning, wow!

  12. Those flowers are gorgeous – so sweet of you to purchase those for your mom! Hope you two have a lovely weekend 🙂
