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!

PARIS. As I mentioned in my previous post, I did a second trip to Paris from tuesday to wednesday to attend the Louis Vuitton S/S 13 show. Although we may look relaxed in these pictures I can tell you that was totally not the case. On our way to the show, me and Andy got stuck in traffic and ended up having to run the last 200 meters (in high heels) to the sound of the guards outside the show space counting down the minutes until the show started. We arrived at 09.59 and as soon as we found our seats, the lights went down and the show started. Talk about last minute!!

The show itself was a magical ode to the 60′s featuring cute mod girls in couples of two, cascading down four massive escalators onto the checkered runway. The models sported cute beehives, pea coats, maxi skirts, mini dresses, crop tops and short jackets, all covered in graphic squares in white and sunshine yellow -  a fresh contrast to last years romanticly themed runway show.

Huge thanks to LV for inviting me, and to my running partner Andy for not leaving me behind when my left shoe almost fell off during our sprint to the show. Never ever thought we would make it on time but somehow we did and I could not have picked a better team mate! ;)
