I remember now that I forgot to show you the cutest little tea set I received from Ladurée before Christmas! Isn’t it adorable? I definitely need to step up my afternoon tea game over here and put this baby to good use.
Fresh flowers from my favourite florist in Paris: Stéphane Chapelle.
A few details from my apartment back in Paris, which I already miss terribly (I know, I’m being silly – I have the beaches of Bali outside my doorstep!)… Love me some baby’s breath (random fact: in Swedish the literal translation for this flower is “wedding veil”) and this lovely scented candle from Sanui that my friend Sofie was kind enough to send over. To my Paris apartment: I’m coming home for you soon, wait for me!

I’ve been locked inside my apartment all day today, trying to edit photos from a few different jobs that I’ve done during the last couple of weeks. This is something that I love to do (I mean editing is half of my job) but after a while my eyes starts to hurt, my body misses fresh air and my mind starts to wonder… Thankfully I got to put on a pair of heels, treat myself to a few glasses of wine as a little reward and celebrate a friend’s birthday last night.
• A recent story I had the pleasure of photographing for Goop.
• I’m currently obsessed with making soups and need all the suggestions I can get!
• Garance Doré talking lingerie (which just made me place two orders from Net-a-Porter… Ops).
• Laughs thanks to Man Repeller.
I’ve been running between meetings all day, getting caught in about 15 rainstorms and ruined yet another pair of shoes. Tonight I plan on doing nothing else than to stay curled up in my bathrobe, catching up on emails and perhaps watch a movie or two. If you’re in the same situation, you could always pass time by reading this little feature with me on Corniche’s website today. Hope you enjoy!

A few bits and pieces from my little Parisian apartment, which I still haven’t managed to decorate (I’m still missing chairs and one million other things) even though I’m celebrating my one year anniversary on this address in just a few days. My favourite thing about this place and the reason why I signed the rental contract as soon as I possibly could? The light.
A dear friend of mine told me that apparently it’s my year this year. At least if we’re talking about Chinese zodiac that is. I’ve never been very into this sort of thing but after proving her point over and over again I’m starting to suspect that there might be more truth in this than I previously thought. Another lovely friend told us both, after hearing our conversation, that you’re allegedly supposed to be wearing something red during this time to protect you from various things (don’t even ask because I have no idea…). As you probably can tell I bought into this (literally) and in my handbag you’ll now find a few new, red, accessories. Let’s hope that this works!
My favourite sight is seeing the light come streaming in through my windows and lighting up the whole apartment. I love working from home with my windows open and looking out over the street below. Although it can be hard to keep my bum on the seat instead of wandering off to admire the pretty view or calling friends to meet up for a glass of wine on one of the terraces in the neighbourhood instead…
