Trött på vintern? Våren kommer ;)

Rusk, grått, regn, kyla… Ja, då vill jag muntra upp er med lite prediction för Våren 2015 från de bästa stylisterna i USA; Jill Lincoln från Rachel Zoe Studio, Laurie Trott från Piperlime och stylisten Caley Lawson-Rinker .

Här kommer en lite short-list

1. Trends that will finally reach their apex this season: midi skirts, crop tops and Birkenstocks. For better or worse.

2. The new normcore is going to be morecore. Think: super-luxe backpacks and bedazzled sneakers.

3. Oscar de la Renta, Zac Posen and Calvin Klein are guaranteed red carpet magic.

4. Ankle strap shoes like Stuart Weitzman’s The Nudist are a stylist’s dream come true…even if they’re not much to look at on the runway.

6. And for editorial shoots it’s the craziest pieces – like Marc Jacobs’ knit bellbottoms – that really get a stylist’s heart palpitating.

7. Big, psychedelic prints and ’70s colors are both street style photographer and paparazzi bait. Get on it.

8. Fashion people fall for “nautical”, “white” and “color-blocking” every. single. season.

9. Every stylist will try to pull Proenza Schouler and Altuzarra’s spring collections the second they hit the runway.

10. Designers, please make more belt bags! (Or the stylists are going to have to start their own line.)

How To Become a Morning Person

who doesn’t hate to get up in the mornings? I know I do, and my boo does too (worst morning mood ever, not joking). But here’s a 5 Step Guide how to get your mornings to a better place.

Step #1: Set intentions before bed.

Your first thought in the morning might be the same as the last one you had before you went to bed. Many people have nights, whether it’s Christmas Eve or the prelude to a vacation, when they can hardly fall asleep because they’re so excited about waking up the next morning. Then as soon as the alarm clock sounds, they open their eyes with enthusiasm to skip out of bed and embrace the day.

On the other hand, if your last thought before bed is something like “Oh man, I can’t believe I have to get up in six hours; I’m going to be exhausted,” then your first thought when the alarm sounds is likely, “Oh my gosh, has it already been six hours? I just want to keep sleeping!”

So the key is to consciously decide the next-day’s intentions every night to actively and mindfully create a positive expectation for the next morn.

Step #2: Move the alarm clock across the room.

If you haven’t done so already, move the alarm clock as far away from the bed as possible. This forces you to rise from bed and engage in movement. I find that movement can energize me. But if you keep your alarm within arm’s reach, you’re likely to hit the snooze button every time.

Step #3: Brush your teeth.

Give your body time to wake up. After turning off your alarm clock, go directly to the bathroom sink to brush your teeth and maybe splash some warm (or cold) water on your face. Simple activities like these can increase your wakeup motivation level from a 1 or a 2 to a 3 or 4.

Step #4: Drink a full glass of water.

This is crucial. After six or eight hours without water, you may be mildly dehydrated, which can cause fatigue. Often when people feel tired what they really need is more water, not more sleep.

When you drink a glass of water and hydrate yourself, your wakeup motivation level goes from a 3 or a 4 to a 5 or 6.

Step #5: Get dressed in your workout clothes.

Dress in your exercise clothes, so you’re ready to leave your bedroom. Some people prefer to start their day by jumping into the shower. But I believe people should earn a morning shower by first breaking a sweat.

In my experience, morning exercise helps me maximize my potential by putting me in a peak mental, physical and emotional state to win the day.

So guys, now you know it! and GOOD MORNING btw 😉

Sex proposal? Some people are seriously not metally sane, look what I got…

I know, we all get weird messages on our social medias, and normally I don’t post them, cause its nothing “else” than the regular “hooking up“-kind of messages, but them sometimes we get these messages that we just stare at, cause we can’t believe our eyes. Or at least I can’t.  This I got today.

The Woman Behind GUCCI

Gucci är ett av mina absoluta favoritmärken. Det är deras väskor jag har föest av, när jag tröttnar på någon, så säljer jag den och köper en ny.

While most Italian women exude a certain level of confidence and an enviable amount of innate style, Frida Giannini, the Creative Director of Gucci, is the epitome of European chic. The Rome-born beauty was raised by an architect father and a mother who was a professor of art history. After studying fashion design at Rome’s Fashion Academy, she began her career as a designer at Fendi. In 2002, Frida became the Handbag Design Director of Gucci and after only two years was appointed to the Creative Director of Accessories. In 2005, she was named the house’s Creative Director, overseeing womenswear and soon after also took over menswear. Frida has often looked to Gucci’s extensive archive as a source of inspiration, which can be clearly seen in the label’s beautiful collections. In addition to being a fashion force, Frida is also an extremely active philanthropist, aligning Gucci with several nonprofits including Martin Scorsese’s The Film Foundation—which works to protect motion-picture history—and UNICEF. In 2013 Frida cofounded (along with Beyoncé and Salma Hayek) Chime For Change, a campaign for girls’ and women’s rights. We get to know this powerful and inspiring leader of the fashion industry in our latest Women of Style interview.

On What Drew Her to the Fashion Industry

“Growing up in Rome, my creativity and interest in design came from my family. My father was an architect, my mother taught art history and my grandmother owned a boutique. I quickly learned the skill of sketching and drawing, but it wasn’t until my teenage years—during the height of Italian fashion in the 1980s—that I realized I wanted to be a designer.”

On The Key to her Success

“I work with a talented team with a strong commitment to my vision for Gucci. Together we understand the importance of the house’s iconography, and we work to create trendsetting collections with a sense of innovation. Drawing from Gucci’s powerful heritage is part of my inspiration as I evolve and write my own chapter in this story. It’s not about nostalgia but instead a perspective on how the past informs fashion’s future.”

Her Goal As Creative Director

“When I came on board it was important to establish a strong, personal point of view that distinguished my own work from the past. I set out to bring a new sensibility.”

Her Advice to Someone Wanting to Pursue a Career In Fashion

black jumpsuit“Trust your instincts and fight for your ideas. Never underestimate your work. There is no perfect equation to achieve success as a designer in the industry today. That said, one needs strong instincts, innate creativity, a clear point of view and the ability to make decisions. I would say it’s also important to keep an open mind and know who your customer is across different markets. And you must surround yourself with the right people and know to trust your team.”

The Best Career Advice She’s Received

“Someone once told me, ‘Express yourself in a personal, effortless way and you will succeed.’ I think about this often and always remember to be confident and elegant in my career.”

The Items Every Woman Should Own

“An iconic handbag, a great pant and a day-to-night dress.”

 

On Her Personal Style

“Every woman should interpret fashion in her own way, creating her own personal style. I like to mix items from current collections with vintage pieces. Fashion is exciting when you can be creative and personalize things.”

What She Wears When She Wants to Feel Glamorous

“I think makeup is necessary to really define a woman’s look. This is why it was important to me to add cosmetics to the Gucci world. To feel glamorous, I feel women should draw attention to their eyes. A woman’s eyes are magnetic and can really exude confidence. Lipstick can also be very transforming and add glamour to even the most classic look.”

What She Is the Most Proud Of

“My daughter, Greta. Motherhood has changed me—my life is now more balanced and complete.”

On Balancing Work and Personal Life

“Fortunately, having a daughter has really made me understand the importance of a work-life balance. Being so passionate about your job makes it hard to step away, but having Greta has taught me how important it is to keep that balance.”

What She Loves Most About Living In Rome

“It was a wonderful place to grow up because there was so much to do and see. The city never sleeps, and that energy is  infectious. I think my personality reflects a lot of Rome’s characteristics—the openness, excitement and warmth.”

On Why She Started Chime For Change with Salma Hayek and Beyoncé

“Chime For Change was started as a global campaign to raise funds and awareness for girls’ and women’s empowerment. Discrimination and violence against women are still happening everywhere around the world. At Gucci, we are proud to put the weight of our name behind worthy causes. Both Salma and Beyoncé are talented individuals who share my commitment to philanthropy. I always strive to work with people who also want to share their stories to empower other women.”

On Why Supporting the Film Industry and the Preservation Of Film Is Important to Gucci

“Gucci has a longstanding relationship with cinema and Hollywood, dating back to the 1940s. There’s a history of the house’s association with Hollywood and with the world of film that I feel is important to carry forward in a meaningful way. We have worked closely for many years with important art and film-industry leaders including Martin Scorsese’s The Film Foundation, LACMA and the Tribeca Film Institute. Restoring cinematic treasures is an achievement I am very proud of.”

What’s Next For Gucci

“Something I am very excited about is my collaboration with Kris Knight, an extremely talented artist from Canada. For the Cruise 2015 collections, he reinterpreted the iconic Gucci Flora print, which has always been a strong source of inspiration for me. We wanted to showcase this partnership in a unique way so we created an animation of his print coming to life. This was unveiled on a two-story LED wall at the newly renovated Beverly Hills store that just opened.”

When People Don’t Understand

I’ve been really busy lately. So much going on. And the last thing I need, when I’m already stressed out about most parts of my life, is drama. I get it that people may get irritated that I’m basically never available, and then they see me meeting up for drinks/dinner/lunch with other friends or people. But I can honestly say that the meetings I take, even if they may look all “private” are mostly not. Even meeting up with friends has had the main purpose of some work related stuff.

And right now there is so much going on in my life that if I could I would just pull the duvets over my head and stay in bed, doing nothing, caring about nothing and just wishing that the next day I could start over not having anything hanging over my head. I’m actually kinda drained, so sorry if I don’t seem to “give a damn” when some people seem to get mad because I say I can’t see them. I just have enough with my own shit to take care of without adding on some “I’m mad at you” on top of that.

And for the guys, sending stuff like “looks like its taking you a long time to answer…” – give me a fucking break. I haven’t even read your previous message… and maybe I just don’t feel like answering.

There is only one person that I would take time for whenever right now. Or of course if my friends really needed me, but as said ONE person. Can’t help it, that’s my only focus except of work-related matter right now.

Hope you guys are having a great Sunday, I actually have a headache..

Do the best You can with a small space

This is pretty amazing. 8sqm to live on and she is making this out of it. And I’m complaining about my apartment being way to small for me with it’s 48sqm. What this girl did in Paris is amazing, but I would go nuts in such a small space and such a small space for my clothes and shoes.
