A LONG-WEEKEND IN NORWAY

As I mentioned on my previous post, it is essential to frequently leave the hectic London life behind and travel somewhere farfetched. I decided on travelling to Norway to visit my sister and her Norwegian husband. She lives in a small town in the Southern Norway named Tønsberg (actually known as Norway´s oldest town) and we spend the days strolling around the harbour of Tønsberg and talked about love, life and everything in-between. We also visited her parents-in-law an afternoon where they run their own apple farm (very hipster, I know!) around 2 hours drive outside Tønsbergand, I meet and feel in love with their new poppy called Chaos. Even though the weather was not ideal, I must admit it felt amazing getting closer to the nature where the time has little meaning and small trivialities in your life starts to fade away.

DAYS IN BRIGHTON

I try to visit the small seaside resort Brighton, located at the South coast of England, as often as I can. The fresh breeze from the ocean, the hippie and chill out atmosphere and quirky shops (and the most amazing second-hand shops) is extremely refreshing comparing to the cosmopolitan London. I´m especially very fond of the many local caffe places, offering the most delicious selection of pastries.

Even though the weather was not ideal (yes typical English weather, rain and windy) we managed to stroll around in the central of Brighton, have a long walk to the fish shop to buy our traditional lunch steak tuna with chips and skate, or at least trying to.

BLUE ON BLUE

I came across the amazing London- based shoe brand called FINSK, found by the Finnish designer Julia Lundsten in 2004. FINSK is known for mixing avant-garde yet modern style inspired by architecture and details found in furnitures. Besides creating stunning shoes, a pair of FINSK are super comfortable. All are Made in Brazil by local craftsmen using traditional shoes making methods and applying highest quality materials as by-products of other industries.

A pair of FINSK shoe is a statement piece, giving your look the little extra it might have been missing.

THINGS THAT CAN BE FOUND ON SECOND-ON-SHOPS

One of my biggest hobbies is to go around and find different second-hand stores, vintage boutiques or even better, charity shops every time I travel to a place. The top and skirt I´m wearing is from Eriks Hjälp, a charity shop in Malmö and was bought the last time I was back home in Sweden. The bag is from Zara and the shoes is also from Zara but was bought at the charity shop Barnardos in Brixton.  The reason why I so fond of second hand items is that I always find unique and special things, from clothes, furniture to accessories, also its environmental friendly and sustainable to purchase (or reuse) perfectly fine items others no longer need. 90% of clothing that is thrown away is before the end of its life circle, this means that clothes have much longer life cycle and can be worn longer period of time before it actually is unwearable. So if you area bit sceptical to second-hand clothes, try to organise a clothes swapping day with your friends and get a totally new wardrobe and the best thing is that its for free!!
