Jag hade stämt kafferep med en gammal vän. Vi gick till Yerba, ett kafé där föreståndaren bär ett litet förkläde och tycker om att prata om kaffe och thé i minst fyra timmar samtidigt som han drar i sin mustasch.
Today I met up with a friend for a coffee party. We went to a café called Yerba, where the owner wears a tiny apron and like to talk about coffee and tea for at least four hours at the same time as he pulls his mustasche.

Vi drack minst tre koppar kaffe och åt frallor med pumpakärnor och sambalost medan vi pratade om allt sådant man inte hinner säga ifall man inte träffas mer än någon gång i halvåret.
We drank at least three cups of coffe and ate sandwiches with pumpkin seeds and sambal cheese while we talked about all the things that there´s no time to talk about if you only meet once every six months.

Inne på Yerba har dessutom min Victoria en utställning utav sina magiskt detaljerade tavlor som får det att susa lite sådär i hjärtat och väcker en längtan att åka någonstans långt bort. De är till försäljning och jag skulle köpt varenda en om jag inte varit en fattig student.
At Yerba my friend Victoria is exhibiting her magical detailed paintings that brings to life a wind in the heart and a feeling to travel somewhere far far away. They are for sale and I would have bought every one of them if I hadn´t been a poor student.

Varje målning är döpt efter en låttitel eller en sångmening, mina favoritbitar visade sig. Victoria´s blogg hittar ni här!
Every painting have a songtitle or a song sentence for name, my favourite songs I noticed. You will find Victoria´s blog here!

Efter att vi fikat i mer än 1/6 dygn och var kaffeskakiga bestämde vi oss för att det nog var dags att gå. Det hade blivit mörkt ute och innegården som omger Yerba var så fasligt fin.
After having a coffee party for more than 1/6 of a day we decided to leave, a little bit shaky by all the coffe that gone down. The dusk had began to fall and the greens surrounding Yerba was utterly beautiful.

På lördagskvällen gav jag mig än en gång ut i natten. Det söktes skydd mot snö och isiga gator i trevligt sällskap på stadens krogar. Spontant vilket alltid innebär hysteriskt roligt.
On Saturday I went out into the night. A few nice fellows were seeking protection from the raving snow and streets of ice in the pubs. Spontaneous which is always equal hysterical fun.

Vi drack några öl på Butler´s och tittade på alla femtiofem-åringar som svingade sina lurviga. En kinesisk man bjöd oss på tuggummi och tipsade om restauranger i Göteborg.
We had a few beers at Butler´s and watched the old folks doing their moves on the dance floors. A Chinese man gave us gum and tout about restaurants in Gotheburg.

Vi åkte ut till Sara på ett snöstormigt Gustafsberg och år trerätters. Lisa stod för apelsinkanderad cheesecake, förmodligen den bästa någonsin.
We had a three course meal at Sara´s place, a snowstormy Gustafsberg. Lisa had made an orange candid cheesecake.

Vi drack vin och talade om världen och livet.
We drank wine and talked about the world.

Redan klockan nio begav vi oss ut i vimlet fast först stod vi i kö. Det är många som ska gå ut på juldagen.
We headed towards the clubs and the pubs at nine o´clock. There was a long line, a lot of people have their dancing shoes on at Christmas day.

Efter att fått en drink och någon bärs nedför mi klännngsrygg gick jag till Butler´s. Där var Lina.
After I got a drink and some beer spilled down my back I went to Butler´s where I met Lina.

Julaftonen lider mot sitt slut.
Jag är mätt trött och lycklig. Vi åt en sjuherrans massa mat och gotta och öppnade mängder utav klappar. Lagom odramatiskt, för dramatik är ju trots allt en del utav julen men iår serverades den i lagom mått.

Christmas eve is drawing to a close.
I´m stuffed, tored and happy. We ate a lot of food and sweets and wrapped up loads of christmas presentes. The drama was served in suitable doses, as in oppose to all the other years.

På fötterna bar jag dessa skodon från Carin Wester´s samarbete med Cheap Monday. De är ett utav de sämsta par skor jag köpt, har använt de tre gånger och i maxåtta timmar sammanlagt. Limmet har släppt så själva skon och klacken kommer förmodligen att dela sig nästa gång jag kastar en blick på dem.

I wore these shoes from Carin Wester and Cheap Monday´s collaboration. It´s one of the crappiest pair of shoes I ever bought. I´ve used them three times which adds up to a maximum total of eight hours. The shoe itself has come off from the heel so next time I cast a glance on them it is very likely that they will fall apart.

The marvelous with being home during Christmas is that I got to experience the essence of Swedish winter. Heavy snow flakes settled as a layer on the ground, trees and roof tops and created a truly winter landscape which evoked the Christmas spirit even in my chrissy cynical heart.

I took the bus to the southern to meet some friends, have a few drinks and do the mandatory christmas shopping. Me and Sara went to a bar for a few beers.

We took the train to Malmö where they had lit up the city with all kinds of different innovative decorations. Among the Christmas market stalls we found a carousel.

The evenings was mostly spent at different bars/clubs. They involved a lot of laughter, dance and clothing layers-it´s an art form to dress suitable for -15 degrees outside and temperature á la discotheque inside.

Such a joker behind me doing the bunny ears. Made me laugh though, but that´s only beacause I´m easily amused.

Well, this was the summary of my mini holiday in Lund. According to the christmas gifts, I will shop all of them tomorrow, cause the other days I will be working as a dog.

Let the Russian weekend commence!
I´m going to the south of Sweden, Lund to be precise.

So I´ve left England for Sweden where I´m currently enjoying my holiday.

It´s past midnight, halv 1 actually and I´m spending the time by looking at people´s photos on facebook and holding conversation via msn as I listen to this song.

If I had no hair but just a black lipstick this is what I would look like.

This is what I look like when I have hair, black lipstick, a bow tied scarf in my hair, crammed up in bed, supported by pillows.

Mall chain Esprit are using the young faces by Julia Restoin-Roitfeld (daughter of the editor of French Vogue) and Daisy Lowe to front their Spring campaign. The celebrity endorsement is a gesture Esprit hope will attract the cool fashion people.

Restoin-Roitfeld will be the face of the woman´s casual line while Lowe accompanied by her ginger boyfriend will appear in the advertising for EDC by Esprit.

The campaign is shot by Barnaby Roper in a car cemetary in the outskirts of L.A.

It would be so much nicer if the sun went up around 5 o´clock, it would facilitate the way to determine what is night and day.

The last two days I´ve been developing a weird sleeping pattern in an effort to enable to finish my seven hand ins that is due on the 9th of December.

My days mostly look like this since I changed routines: Get up around 11, go to uni, eat dinner etc. Fall asleep around 19.00-19.30 and sleep to around 23.00. Then I stay up until 5.18 in the morning in an attempt to sort myself out.

Because of that I mostly look like this:
In my case I´m giving myself an opportunity to finish projects and essays and model Coco Rocha via her blog is providing all aspiring designers and Rocha lovers out there with an opportunity to help her designing a clothing line.

J´adore Edith Sedgwick, or Edie if you want to put it that way. I must confess that I first got aware of her through the Factory Girl film, which starred my then not so fancied a lot celebrity Sienna Miller. My curiousness about Edie and her relationship with Andy Warhol and my embracing of the 60s-70s era´s famous faces made me eager to watch it. And so I did and so I have a many more times after that. It is thanks to Factory Girl that I nowadays am able to stand Sienna.

What I find really interesting about Edie is her sense of style, she was equipped with a pretty face and good bones and that makes it a lot easier to carry off certain apparel, but those headscarves, that crop, and the heavy make up.

The film captivates the time and fashion very well and one of my favourite outfits is when Edie and Andy is walking in a park (Central Park?) and Edie (Sienna)is wearing this fantastic cap. It inspired me so much that I had to buy a similar at Accessorize last year. And today in an attempt to shelter my hair from the rain but mainly covering my roots I wore it for the first time.

Here´s my favourite song from the movie. Also note how I clothed myself in a little sixties inspired dress and white tights, just trying to captivate an era, clueless thoughts.

In an online interview with WWD this week Kate Moss said that one of her mottos were: "nothing tastes as good as skinny feels," which caused an outrage. She is now accused for causing anorexia and giving fuel to those who participate in a pro-ana lifestyle.

I can totally see where those who are slamming here are coming from, but who is really surprised? Is it something new that the fashion world embrace skinny? A new emphasis was put on this subject when Eliana and Luisel, the two model sisters that starved themself to death in the time frame of six months. Because of this Spain among others has banned models with a BMI under 18.

But is it the right thing to do, to blame one industry (fashion industry) for causing eating disorders? Is it all about food and fitting into the clothes? Does everyone in the world who is under the spell of an eating disorder want to look like Kate Moss?

20 year old Daul Kim´s agency Next confirm that the South Korean model was found dead on the 19th of November in her flat in Paris. The cause of death is still unknown but there are rumours of suicide circulating.

When I look at the pictures of this utterly beautiful girl I see no smiles and her glance gives me the chill, it´s too much sadness.

South Korea has the highest rate of suicide among the 30 nations belonging to the Organization of Economic Cooperation and Development.

Kim has walked the collections of Alexander McQueen and Chanel and was well known for her platinum blonde hair complementing her asian features.

I woke about seven times this nights due to nightmares, I can´t remember very clearly what they were about but something like everyone letting me down and turning their back on me. The night before I dreamed that Japanese murderers chased me and I went on a a fence like M.I.A in Bucky done gone video.

I feel as predictable as I look, as if I was trying deconstructivism but ended up with platitude. Bummer!

Just made a can of coffee, I´ll stay up late just to fucking write man (do anyone else than me feel the reference to Lester Bangs in Almost Famous?). The last weeks of never ending parties is declared to be so last two weeks and the new thing is multiple essays and outstanding presentations.

This weekend has been nothing but a bit too much fun to be concentrated on uni work. So here I am on a cold Monday morning newly washed hair and dressed in different shades of white as a sign of the pureness that will mark this week. And the anxiety I´ll just ignore.
I recommend this song.

I got a lounge full of balloons but no model and no camera. And the clubs and the pubs must stay unvisited tonight cause I´ll be writing an essay on the subject of globalisation with special reference to the Japanese designer Issey Miyake. Then I will edit some pictures and analyse Dove´s beauty campaign and I will send all those emails to my interviewees and read French all night long.
Au Revoir!
