On My Mind

 

on my minds july 2019

I spent six days in London last week, because I wanted to escape for my birthday and see many of my friends, who currently reside in the city. It was as good as always, but one of the highlights was to try on a few pieces from Bottega Veneta by Daniel Lee! It is so different to experience his designs in real life – the fit is great, everything looks well thought-out and contemporary. I’m sold!

Chic Ladies: Caroline Lundqvist

Caroline Lundqvist is a talented model and artist based in Stockholm. She is obsessed with oysters that appear as the motive of her paintings, but her aesthetic point of view is equally eye-catching and very worthy of anyone’s attention. As told by Caroline:

Tell me about your style. What brands do you wear?

My style is minimalistic and timeless. I have been a thoughtful shopper for a long time, and I prioritise quality; when I buy new expensive pieces, I always keep in mind that I can use them for many years and still like them.

I mostly wear Levi’s 501 jeans or trousers from The Row, Totême or Khaite, which I combine with either a t-shirt or a tank top, and wear with a sweater or blazer. I’m a big fan of Céline by Phoebe Philo and The Row! I bought a Céline cashmere sweater last year, which I kind of have been living in and I still love it. I also like Filippa K’s tights and shorts, and cashmere sweaters from their Soft Sport line – that is my Sunday uniform! When it comes to accessories, I love Céline, Norrfolks, All Blues and Engelbert.

How did you become an artist?

I started painting when I was very young, so it has always been part of me. Eleven years ago, when I ate my first oyster, I new immediately what I wanted to paint, and after nine years I opened a website for my fine-art prints.

Nowadays I paint a lot in oil and the motive is a bit more surrealistic, but oysters are always at the centre. I’m going to start sculpturing this year, which I’m really looking forward to!

What are you planning to buy next?

My plans is to buy a new bag from The Row or Céline’s Box bag, which I haven’t been able to stop thinking about. But I cannot stop buying more Manolos…

But I will definitely get the Como scar by Totême, a long black coat and a sweater or two for the fall. Also, Sophie Bille Brahe’s latest La Dolce Vita collection is stunning! Both the pearls and diamonds! I might have shown my fiancé a potential wedding ring.

What are your favourite beauty and skincare products?

My beauty look is natural, and I invest money and time into my skincare routine. I use Boy Brow from Glossier, Brightening CC serum by By Terry, and finish off with a powder from Bareminerals or Chanel Les Beiges. I wear mascara only occasionally, as I am not a big fan of a lot of makeup.

The skincare brands I use include Verso, Dr Dennis Gross, Leegeehaam, Exuviance and Omorovicza. Though some particular favourites include the By Whistrend C Advanced Serum, cactus fig oil and a face mask from either Oskia or Rodial. I don’t leave the door without SPF50 from Exuviance or Dr Dennis Gross, or without having curled my eyelashes with Surratt – for those who are still looking for the best eyelash curler!

How do you detox?

I drink a lot of water and lemon water every morning, meditate and eat healthy organic food. I love to cook as much as I love to paint, and I am very aware of food additives. I also try to be near water and in the woods, as that is where I feel calm and relaxed! I also do social media detoxing from time to time.

What are your plans for the summer?

The plan was to go to Italy, but both me and my fiancé have been traveling a lot lately, so we have decided to stay in Sweden and enjoy the summer here!

Bag Crush!

Bottega by Daniel Lee does grow on me, and it is nice to see good bags after a while! I am totally obsessed with the Acro style featured in the picture above, which appeared on their social media earlier today.

  1. Hey, hannasjournal!

    Want to be Instagram cool?

    If you’re like me, you have trawled Instagram, thinking ”how do so many friggin people on Instagram get so famous”?

    Imagine: it is the wee hours of the morning and you told yourself you’d go for a run today.

    You spring up to check your cellphone.

    Flipping to Instagram.

    Whoaaa, you think, Over 800 likes on one picture.

    You put your soft slippers on and head to the kitchen for some tea. After putting on the kettle, you pull out your phone again.

    Bam! Another 38 likes.

    Vrrrrrr—a message pops into your inbox from a follower. They’re asking you for advice on how you manage your food, and are congratulating you on your third month of hitting the gym.

    The kettle blows and you pour your tea. When you flip out your phone, there is another message–this time from a young girl–thanking you for posting. She follows you religiously and your’e an inspiration.

    Within minutes, your phone buzzes AGAIN.

    Oops, another message. But you can’t hit them back—you’ve got to hit the gym.
    Anyways, you get the point. This is the life of an Instagram celebrity. I should know, because I’ve made many of them.

    I’m going to show you how to take control of your Instagram.

    Now, what if you increased your popularity by 100%, or 1000%?

    It’s not complicated to do, although almost no one does. Just check out our website. There, you will learn how to garner Instagram likes and followers like mad…without even trying.

    Automagically see tons of likes on your images just minutes after posting.

    The ”Top Post” section, all of a sudden, does not seem that far away.

    This is all great, but you’ve actually got to put in the work to make it happen. OK, you got me, it is not real work.
    1. Check out https://jabbertune.casa
    2. Plug your Instagram username.
    3. Your three most recent uploads are getting 10 – 15 likes. Just like that.

    Being a regular staple on that page will accelerate your growth 10x, easy. But if you want the fame, you’ve got to reach for it. Are you ready?

    Happy image-uploading.
