About a week ago, an old pair of Shepherd (of Sweden) sheepskin slippers crossed my mind. My mum gave them to me many years ago and I have not seen them since. I sent her a text to ask if she knew where they were. One minute later I got the reply: “At my place, in the closet. Do you want them back?” She is funny. Of course I want them back, winter is coming and I am in great need of all things furry in order to stay alive!
These marvellous pictures are from Newport. It was love at first sight with every single one of the items. I am dreaming of a Christmas spent in a snow-covered chalet in Switzerland but I will be in Stockholm this year. However, I thought that I can bring the après-ski vibes to me! I have visited my family’s Swiss cottage a couple of times before. I can ensure you that it is just as dreamy as it seems in the magazines! The atmosphere up in the Alps/mountains and the typical interior is truly delightful.
My mother asked me yesterday what I want for Christmas… Here you go, Ma! Imagine the cosiness with those mink Aspen slippers (one cannot have too many), the polar bear or the wolf Whistler cushion and blanket/throw. Besides, the fur is faux but looks super authentic! Oh, and how stunning is this ‘julstjärna’ as we say in Sweden? My flat would certainly get a brilliant Christmas ambience with these impeccable design details!
How cool are these sunglasses from Le Specs? I want them all! I actually ordered one of them already, but you will have to guess which pair…
Ladies and gentlemen, this is the best hand cream/lotion/salve on the market as far as I know! It makes my hands super soft, it is not sticky at all and it smells like it ’does good’. KIEHL’S Ultimate Strength Hand Salve comes in particularly handy (excuse the pun) after work since I have a job with a high standard of hygiene; I have to wash my hands frequently and use hand sanitizer. My poor hands would certainly not survive without this product. I strongly recommend a hands-on experience! Hands down. Ha!
It’s pumpkin spice everything season and I couldn’t be more in love with PSLs, and the striking colour orange! Images from Zalando.
My skin cannot not do without the UltraCalming series from Dermalogica and my hair is just frizzy and tangled without Orofluido’s elixir and mask.
Julia has officially taken a fancy to sneakers! This trainer style from Cole Haan is so dreamy! First-class design in my opinion. They look super light and soft as well which is perfect; stylish and comfortable! The coral floral colour is super sweet, too. A great tint for springtime! I think they resemble some pretty spring flower or a Cosmopolitan, the cocktail. It hardly gets better than that! Oh, and for all the trendy men out there – I urge you to have a look at the men’s shoes! I really like these for instance (for you).
Yet another runway look that I fell in love with! I even liked the description of the skirt: “The Spring-Summer 2017 is a journey towards an imaginary Italian Tropic, where the icons traditionally associated with Italy, like bread, pasta and good luck charms are merged with a holiday atmosphere, punctuated by cocktails, ice cream and sequins.” That is D&G for you!
Oh my, oh my, oh my! These over-the-knee boots are everything! They look so well-made and the embroidery is gorgeous! I have been looking for a pair of o-t-k boots for a long time now and I refuse to buy cheap ones – fit and quality is vital. If I had the money I would not hesitate a second to buy these boots. Christian Louboutin, I do not even know what to write. Wow. Just wow.
My Danish neighbours really do know design: architecture, interior design, fashion design… They never disappoint. Here is a newly discovered brand that I found on Instagram today – ARKK Copenhagen. The clean and simple sneaker design with its unique details very much appeal to me. Well done you, Danes! I am proud to have a Danish surname and I will definitely put this post in the Larsen Loves category!
