Made in China - Tredjelångatan

 Trousers: Monky, Top and Necklace:H&M, Bag:Ginatricot, Heels:
 Photos by:me 

Tredjelångatan or Third-street, (the area where I took these pictures) is probably one of my favorites streets in Gothenburg. Until recently it became an pedestrian only area and at the moment its mostly known for its young and hip variety of fine gourmet food restaurants, fancy bars and fancy gourmet food trucks, yes gourmet food trucks. I actually celebrated my birthday dinner at one the restaurants in the area.  I have also heard that the oldest property was built in 1892 and the newest was built in 1977. During the years it has been renovated, but I feel that it has kept its original feeling. I know some people would disagree, but I don't think the new changes wash away its beauty and history. In fact for me it usually feels like being in the past and in present at the same time. 

These photos as you can see were taken in front of this super fancy restaurant call Made in china. You can imagine what kind of food they serve here, right. I've being dying to eat here even though the reviews aren't that great.  I wish I could tell you more about the food, but those times when I wanted to eat there it has been either overbooked or the company that I would be with wouldn't be up for it. 
I chose to take my outfit pictures here because of the lighting, but I also felt like the scenery went well with my outfit that day... Or what do you think?

Africa Fashion Week Stockholm: Blog ambassador

Photo: Emma Burendhal
Design: Enab Al Ali
Model:Kolo Soumare

You heard it here first!I' m going to be a blog ambassador for  Africa Fashion Week Stockholm this yearThis means that Im going to be so lucky to attend all the seminars, parties and fashion shows.  I have never been on a fashion event of this magnitude. So this a huge, huge deal for me! The event is in a month so it feels totally suitable to talk about it now. 
For those of you who didn't know, Africa Fashion Week Stockholm (AFWS) is a sister event to Africa Fashion Week London (AFWL). AFWL, has hosted five catwalk events since its inception in 2011 and is today Europe's largest catwalk events of African- and African-ispired design. With that said, I think its just about time for Scandinavia to catch up. I don't think you need the whole background story, but AFWS was launched last year for the first time. So this year we'll be celebrating the second annual between the 1st- 3rd of October in Stockholm .The original idea behind the show was to highlight a fashion that because of its origin often remains in the shadows in this part of the world. To complete my honorable duties as a blog ambassador I though that I would from now on going to be doing small post like this where Im going to be sharing updates on the event, cool interviews and fashion inspiration for you all. I'm also going to be sharing what Im going to wear to the show and much, much more.
So, Stay tuned and don't forget to check out AFWS for more information.

Rain coat season: Mens street style

 source: google, tumblr and Pinterest 

I don't want to think that summer is over, but I think that is an unavoidable fact that I need come to terms with. It has been raining the whole week and think that could be a clear sign of fall. I 've been sick so I 've been off work. I know I've have mention this before. But one of my favorite things to do on my free time is to check out beautiful photography. One of my favorite categories that I always fall back in to is STREET STYLE: I love dreaming about snapping photos on different fashion weeks. Getting my picture taken by other photographers. Sitting on the front row of various fashion show. And just leaving and breathing fashion. Since Im contemplating on getting myself a rain coat. I thought that you all would appreciate a post like this.

That's how it post to be

 Top and jeans:Gina Tricot, Heels:, Denim shirt: H&M
Photos:By me

 My body complexes have reached a limit. I think that these pictures are gorgeous and even though I have gained a lot of weight and I feel a little bit insecure... Looking at them I come to the realization of how important it is to appreciated your body and all the changes you go through. I have also learn how being around toxic people can play a number in your well being. When I was about 10 kg lighter my confidence was low and I was super hard on myself and my body image. Now that I see the different between the pictures now and back them... I can honestly say that: Wow I've really learned my lesson. I'm determinate to get healthy again. But what I need to work more on is not being so hard on myself.

Busy prints

 Playsuit and sunglasses: H&M, Bag:Ginatricot, 
Photos by:me 

Im not hundred percent sure about what happened with todays look pictures. I always go trough my pictures when I shoot an outfit and I  remembered being pretty happy with the results. But when I transferred the photos to my computer and saw them magnified I was in a little bit of shock. The quality was pretty bad and I feel as if the print got lost...  And Im afraid that you might not be able to appreciated. This happens to me every now and them and most of the times I choose not to post them. But this time I decided to post them anyways.

Just enough time

Top and short: H&M, Glasses:Bikbok, Shoes:, Bag:Ginatricot 
Photos by: me 
Im going to head out soon. But before I start to get myself ready I wanted to post this look. This is actually one of the looks that I was rocking at Roskilde festival last month . The shorts I actually got them on my way to Denmark. I found like 4 pair of shorts on the sale section of HM in Malmö and I couldn't leave them behind. If you haven't figure out, the reason why I had to do some last minute shopping before Roskilde was simple cuz I didn't pack the right clothes. I still think I was well prepare after all it was only my first time going away for that long for a festival. Now I know that wearing shorts at a festival is a must!
