Where do you go to be inspired?

I get the most inspired in outdoor environments so I usually go somewhere quiet with my dogs where I can enjoy a good view or observe nature. This of course relies on it being good weather, so if it’s a rainy day I would just go on Pinterest to find inspiration. I love to scroll through that app and I get really inspired by the visual content on there!

What is your favorite item of clothing and why?

Hoodies… I love a good quality hoodie! In Sweden where I’m from, the weather is not always that great… So I’m always, ALWAYS cold. Therefore I need a good hoodie so I can look cute while still staying warm!

What are some of your current fashion obsessions?

My current fashion obsession are milkmaid tops. I think they’re so cute! I love how vintage fashion is coming in style again and how you can combine them with new more modern trends.

Netflix or YouTube?

Hmm… That’s a difficult one. But I guess I would have to say YouTube. YouTube is such a diverse and easy source of entertainment and I definitely spend more time on YouTube than I do on Netflix. But Netflix does offer some pretty good shows nowadays… And nothing compares to a binge worthy TV show. Okay.. I guess I choose Netflix!

What are three songs that have to make it to your life’s soundtrack?

Three words that describe your personal aesthetic.

Girly, trendy and vintage inspired.

How would you describe your Instagram aesthetic and is it a representation of your personal aesthetic?

I would describe my aesthetic as girly and adventurous. I think the “adventurous” side of me can be shown in many different aspects of my Instagram. For example, I love to explore different places whether that’s a city, climbing mountains or somewhere tropical, like the beach. And I also do a lot of spontaneous trips which I like to showcase my Instagram. I also love to be adventurous with my style. I for example love to combine girly items with something considered more “edgy”, and I often tend to hop on new trends pretty fast! I think my Instagram is a pretty accurate representation of my personal aesthetic. I of course wish I could be more expressive with my fashion looks but as many of you probably can relate to, my budget won’t allow it. Right now I’m prioritising spending my money on travel and experiences rather than material things!

What tools do you use to maintain your Instagram content?

My favorite apps to use for editing is Lightroom and VSCO. Lightroom is a game changer when it comes to color correction and adjust lightning, and VSCO I use for filters. I always use the same filter to get a similar vibe for all my photos. As for the planning part I use UNUM which is great for planning your feed!

What are some of your fave beauty and fashion brands?

My favourite beauty brands are Anastasia Beverly Hills, Tarte Cosmetics, Morphe and MAC. Some of my favourite brands are Michael Kors, Nike, Ted Baker and Tommy Hilfiger. I usually shop at Zalando, ASOS and Bootz, they have such a big variety of good brands that I like!
