The reason it took me so long to answer all your questions:

What do you do when you have nothing to wear and everything in your closet feels wrong? Usually, I just put on something simple, like a pair of skinny black jeans, a plain t-shirt and a leather jacket. And then I add some fun accessories, like nice shoes and a printed scarf, or maybe a hat.What curling iron do you use for your hair? Or any other products? Because your hair looks perfect all the time, not too curly and not to straight. How do you do it like that? I don’t use a curling iron, or any other products than shampoo & conditioner (L’Oreal Elvital – volume non-stop). I don’t even use a hairdryer. My hair is naturally semi-curly, so I don’t have to do anything at all ;) If you could only chose between Niotillfem, Kenza and Lisaplace – which one would you read?
Niotillfem. Do you know any shoes that are similar to your black Zara heels? And also, what cell phone do you have? First of all I have like three different pair of black heels from Zara, but I’m assuming that you mean these ones. I know that Zara has a similar pair in store right now, but I can’t seem to find any pictures of them:/ I have a Sony Ericsson t650i (the midnight blue, not the tacky green one). Which blogs do you read on a daily basis? Wow, I read LOT’S of blogs everyday. But my favorites at the moment are Childhoodflames and Knightcat. Why did you start blogging, and how did you end up here? Was it a goal of yours to be world famous? I’ve been collecting tons of inspirational pictures since I was a kid and have always loved to write, so I thought, why not share this with others? I have absolutely no idea how I ended up here. I guess it has a lot to do with the quality of the content. I’m not the best on updating the blog, but I always make sure to have something great to post when I do update. My goal has never been to become famous in any kind, and I certainly don’t consider myself famous at all. But being noticed by Vogue Girl Korea and Teen Vogue is of course something that I’m really flattered and honored by. Do you have any tips for other bloggers? Like I said before, quality before quantity. I rather read a blog with few updates that are really good (text and picture wise) than a blog that updates all the time with boring text and lousy pictures. What’s the color of your tooth brush? Purple. What kind of music do you listen to? Right now I’m listening a lot to The Strokes, Daft Punk, Pharrell, Joy Division, Nouvelle Vague, Kanye West and the White stripes. Their music makes me high on life. If you could choose only one store in Sweden, and one international to buy your clothes in, which two would you choose? I have absolutely no idea. Maybe Colette in Paris? Do you have any beauty tips that you want to share? Make sure that you get enough sleep, and drink lots of water! You work in fashion, right? Are you still studying? Yes, I’m currently studying fashion at the University of Stockholm, but it’s roughly 4 hours a week, so I have time to work as well. Have you always had this hairstyle? Yes I have pretty much always had the same hairstyle. I dyed my hair black once though, it looked awful. Hey, I’d like to know what are your favorite collections for AW08? Definitely Balmain, Givenchy and Martin Margiela. I’d like to know what you studied and what you are currently doing? Model, stylist? I can see you doing both..I have studied media-journalism. I’ve been working as a freelance fashion stylist for about a year now, and besides that I’m studying fashion at the University of Stockholm. + I’m working on a secret fashion project which probably will be released in January :) Where are your favorite places to shop? H&M, Zara, and I love treasure hunting at flea markets/thrift stores. How would you describe your style? Simple yet chic, with a little bit of rock going on. Do you have any must-haves for fall/winter 08? I would love to find a nice faux fur vest. a zebra jacket, a jacket similar to the ones in the Balmain show .. and a pair of leather pants!! What kind of make up products do you use and from which brands? Foundation, concealer, rouge, eyebrow pencil, eyeliner, eye shadow. Brand wise it can be anything from H&M to Dior or Lancôme. Do you have any style icon? Absolutely, I love the styles of Emmanuelle Alt, Geraldine Saglio, Kate Lanphear and Carine Roitfeld, and the olsen sisters of cours. Which is your favorite garment? A vintage leather jacket that I bought a couple of years ago. How tall are you? 171 cm, which is like 5’7-5’8 I think? How old are you? I’m 21 years old When is your birthday?
5th march. Where do you prefer to shop? In London. They have so many great stores there! How did you and your boyfriend meet, and how long have you guys been together? We met when he was about to launch a fashion community and I was brought in to help him and his co-workers to bring some fashion into their boring website (trust me, it was really lame!). I fell for him the first time I saw him, and a couple of weeks later, we became a couple. The fashion community never happened, and instead they started bloglovin´. We have been together for a year now:) Why did you get into fashion? Because I think it is fun! It started in October 2007 when I was asked to style some inspiration videos for the re-launch of a shopping mall here in Sweden called PUB (the company that asked me had seen my blog and liked the way I put together clothes and thought that it would be interesting to throw in some “new blood”). And after that I have just continued to work as a stylist! I haven’t studied to become a stylist or anything like that. How long have you been blogging? Since 2005. Do you use any special products for your skin? It looks like perfection! Haha, thank you but it probably has a lot to do with good lightning. Right now my skin is a total mess – the result of too much sugar and not enough sleep (trust me, it shows directly on my skin). Right now I’m using a cleanser and a moisturizer from Neutrogena, but I’m always on the search for something better. Are the Balenciaga bags less expensive in Paris? I have absolutely no idea. I don’t own a Balenciaga bag, and I didn’t look at the prices of them when I visited Paris last time. How do you make a career in fashion? I would love to have one, but it seems so “instable”. That depends on what you want to do. Do you want to become a stylist, a model, a designer, a PR-person, or maybe a fashion journalist? There’s lot’s of professions in the fashion business so it’s pretty hard to answer your question. What is the shipping rate from the US to Sweden when you order from eBay? It depends on what you are buying. I think I paid around 50 Swedish kronor when I ordered my top from there. Which city do you live in? I live in Stockholm. Which agency are you with? I’m not a model, so I’m not with any agency. Do you smoke/have you smoked? No, I don’t smoke! I always wondered how did you get so much clothes and shoes? Because I almost only shop at places like H&M, Zara and of course thrift shops. Do you consider yourself a lucky person? Are you happy with the things around you, like your blog, the work you’re doing etc.? What kind of things do you like to change? That’s a very interesting question! I’m not one of those who are happy with myself and my life 24/7, but I try to think positive about things because I strongly believe that when you’re happy, good thing will happen to you! What do you work with, and what have you worked with in the past? I’ve been working as a freelance fashion stylist for about a year now, and besides that I’m studying fashion at the University of Stockholm and working on a, for now, secret fashion project. Before this I worked as a freelance photographer for the website Could we see some picture of your home? Hmm.. I think that’s a little too private for a fashion blog, but who knows, maybe in the future! What do you want to do in the future? Oh, tricky one! The most important thing for me is to be happy. Only time can tell where I will end up! :) How is it possible to be so beautiful and unique? Who.. Me?! Who’s your favorite model? It’s impossible to only name one! Jessica Stam, Daria, Natalia Vodianova, Kate Moss, Elsa Sylvan, Lily Aldrige.. What are you doing in ten years? Hopefully I’ll be living with my wonderful boyfriend in a gorgeous apartment (with a huge closet full of shoes) somewhere else (ha ha), working with something that I love and most importantly, I’ll be genuinely happy. Family? Mum, dad, a brother and a sister. (+ my boyfriend of cours!) How do you stay in shape? Are you one of those who eat lot’s and healthy, or less and unhealthy? I love food, I guess I’m one of those who eat lot’s AND unhealthy. As for the stay in shape part, I don’t. But I’m planning on going to the gym, my body could certainly need some muscles. Could you please update more? I try to update as often as I can, and I would love to update more because there’s so much I want to share with you guys. But right now I’m working more than full time + studying so I really don’t have much spare time. And I don’t want the blog to feel like a dull obligation, it’s supposed to be fun! How tall are you and how much do you weigh? Sorry if it’s too personal, to ask about weight.But I think if you meet stats you should model. Yoooour gooooorgeous!. Haha, well thank you, but modeling is not for me. Firstly I’m not really fond of being in front of the camera; secondly I don’t meet the stats. I’m 171 cm (which is like 5’7 I think?) I weigh about 54 kg (119 pounds?). First of all, you and your boyfriend are PERFECT together! What a lucky catch, do you dress your boyfriend up or is he blessed with the same sense of fashion as you? And what were your favorite collections/items from fashion month spring 09? Thank you! :) Well, when we met he certainly didn’t dress like this, hahaha. But I think it’s unavoidable not to get influenced when you spend so much time with a fashion enthusiast. My number one favorite collection for spring 09 is, no surprise, Balmain! What kind of camera do you use? Which camera would you recommend for someone who’s going to buy their first system camera? I use a Canon EOS 350D with a camera lens from Tamron and a Canon speedlite 420EX flash. And sometimes I use a small digital camera – Canon ixus 800IS, or my mobile phone. I would definitely recommend you to buy one from Canon, I would go for Canon EOS 450D or EOS 1000D. What’s the address to your old blog? I deleted it a couple of months ago, it was a little too personal. Where have you bought your lovely Miu Miu bag, and how much did it cost? I bought it in the Miu Miu store on New Bond st. in London. It cost £575, (ungefär 7000 svenska kronor). How much money do you spend on clothes every month? Not much at all, between 1000-2000 Swedish kronor ($135-270). Who have you been working for a stylist? PUB, PEOPLE, Sandqvist and Skärholmen centrum amongst others. Do you ever feel uncomfortable about your style? Or when you later think of something you might’ve worn, you go; oh piss, what was in my head when choosing this combo? I wouldn’t say uncomfortable, but when I look at some of the stuff I was wearing when I was in my early teens I’m like : What the hell was I thinking? I’ve tried sooo many styles.

  1. Hei!

    Jeg bare lurer på om du har noen tips angående bra butikker i London?
    Eller restauranter og clubs?
    Jeg skal dit om 4 dager, og trenger noen tips!!
    Hadde vært kjempe snilt:)

    Ha en fin lørdag!

    Hilsen Caroline:)

  2. Caroline: Jag var inte på en enda klubb när jag var där och åt mest på restauranger som låg i närheten av mitt hotell, men när det gäller butiker tycker jag att du ska kolla på Oxford street, där finns allt, (glöm inte bort Primark där du kan köpa skor för otroliga 12£!). Trevlig resa! :)
