postcard from paradise

postcard from paradiseHI. Just wanted to make a quick post to show you guys this amazing swimsuit from Dagmar that I wore for my morning swim a couple of hours ago (if only every morning could start like this!). I’m currently spending the 4th of July weekend in Nanette Lepore’s beautiful summer house in the Hamptons and I seriously never want to leave, this place is magical!

weekend photo diary

GRAND. Me and Mattias spent the weekend at the lovely Scandic Grand Central and I seriously can’t remember the last time I felt this rested. In the beginning of April we will be moving into our new apartment and as we’ve already moved out of our old one, we’ve been living with my parents for a while. Eventhough it’s great to get to spend some time with the family, it kind of drives you slightly crazy after a while, and to get 3 days alone in a beautiful, quiet room was a dream come true. The fact that my BFF Andy who’s been in town for a couple of days stayed at the hotel during the same time only made things even better.

A couple of days ago I finally took the plunge and bought the camera of my dreams and even though it left a gigantic hole in my savings, it’s the best darn investment I’ve ever made. Since I’m ridiculously excited about my new toy, I obsessively snapped everything that came in my way over the weekend. Hence, this rather random photo diary!

Postcard from New York

new york, post card

NY. Hey guys! So sorry about the radio silence these past 10 days! Me and Mattias are in the middle of moving and there has just been so much stuff to sort out that I had to put the blog on hold for a while. Somewhere in between all the stress and traveling I managed to catch the flu but now I’m finally starting to feel better again!

Arrived to New York for fashion week yesterday and I’m so exicted to be back in the city again! I still have lot’s of pictures left from my last trip here 2 months ago so tomorrow I’ll be posting a little photo diary + behind the scenes of the photo shoot I did and don’t forget to follow me on instagram @carolinaengman for lot’s of more NY pictures!

hello NY!

NYC.  Hello New York! Just a tiny bit obsessed with the view from my room, imagine waking up to this everyday… Was planning to head out for dinner with friends tonight but my stupid jetlag is ruining all the fun. Instead, I’m going to throw on my pajama, order some room service and watch a movie, if I can keep my eyes open that is. This bed is dangerously comfortable right now..
