What makes Stockholm so special? A city made up of a beautiful archipelago that includes about 30000 Islands. Making it very accessible to both city life and amazing nature at the same time.

Any other shopping secrets you can share? Judith (amazing second hand). Tjallamalla

Favorite summer activity? Going to friends’ summer houses. Sailing through the archipelago, the further out you get the more authentic it gets.

Favorite weekend getaway outside of Stockholm? Visby on the Island Gotland. A medieval town surrounded by walls. Cobble stone streets with lots of amazing cafés and restaurants. A great summer retreat with stunning beaches. It has the most amount of sun hours during the year in Sweden :)

Who is on your stereo? Bahamas. Bloc party. 

Words you live by...life's a garden, dig it.
