Can’t touch this (oh-oh oh oh)

Three years ago (gosh, time just flies), when we lived in a car in Australia we used our very last computer battery to watch the Free People short movies (here are two of our favorites, click, click) in the evenings in the car before the very last of our computer battery died.
⠀⠀ ⠀
To jump straight into a world that we wanted to be inside of was our petrol and elixirs. Ever since, Free People followed us and come to be our favorite clothing brand. But it was in Hawaii, we stepped into one of their stores for the first time. And we could not help but buy half of all the amazing clothes that were there.
⠀⠀ ⠀
Below you can see one of the purchases <3

When Thilda turned 23

ft34

 

Thilda’s birthday is in late August, on one of those last days when the sun is still warm, just before the summer let go for the fall to take over. For her 23 birthday we had a champagne (prosecco) lunch at our cousins place, kidnapped her to a forest picnic, went to a live concert where our favorite band, crying day care choir, was playing and dedicated two songs to her..
 ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀

From me, she got four letters. One that I wrote six years ago. One that she may open when she turns 30. And two others.

⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
”To my dearest sister on your 23’th birthday.

 ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
When you read this letter, you have been existing on this planet for exactly 8400 days. For 8400 days, your lungs have been expanded by oxygen every other second, 8400 times have you fallen asleep and woken up (apart from the evenings we filled with glitter and decadence), and for 8400 days I have had the privilege to call you my sister.

⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
I know that you sometimes wish you were older, perhaps because you think that you would be taken more seriously if you were, or because you want to feel more equal to all those you surround yourself by. But you know what, I know that most people who are older than you secretly envy you. For everything that you have accomplished, despite your young age, for all the talent you posses and all the good things you have in front of you. That you, despite your young age, has accomplished much more things than many of the 40-year olds will ever do.

⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
Do not hurry, enjoy instead of getting to be just 23 years old. You’ve got all that in front of you.

⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
You will be 25, 28 and 30, then the years will pass quickly (because your wise three years older sister has already noticed it – that the older you get the faster the time passes).

⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
For example you have already, as 23-year-old worked with world famous brands (not that it matters), managed to travel to almost all parts of the world, you’ve been living in a car, received top grades in all subjects (except one, but it shows just embrace your devils), you have loved and been loved, you have seen how the sun goes up, scattered the night after hours of dancing and gave life to a brand new day.

⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
Because you know me so well that when we have been in the same raves 9 times I have been there three, maybe because I’m eager when it comes to creating memories and see how the sun rises with you.

⠀⠀⠀ ⠀ 

Think how much you will have in you no matter how many numbers you will get. and how much you will accomplish in with the course of life.

⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
If I had been blessed with a minimum musical talent I would have made an own written song for you, singing a jingle about our journey through life with a guitar or recording a fantastic video where all your friends are sharing with their love for you. But unfortunately, I was born unmusical, and I can’t film either. So, instead of that, a wrote some little words for you.

 ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
When I think of my life you show up within a millisecond. For there is almost nothing in my life, so far as I have been through that you can not relate to. For you have been with me and shared just about everything, all the way.
 ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
I’m so looking forward to every new coming thing with you. New life staget, all future adventures and escapades that is waiting ahead of us, memories that will be created and all upcoming birthdays to celebrate.
 ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
From the deepest bottom of my heart, all the way to infinity. Beyond the stars, galaxies and the universe.
 ⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
So it has always been, and so it will always be.

⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
CONGRATULATIONS TO  8400 DAYS ON EARTH.
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀

I look forward to all the upcoming days, adventures, pranks, memories and life with you.”

Like Bambi on slippery ice

Could probably write a love story about this jacket..
Who doesn’t walk around in a white winter paradise looking like bambi (…on slippery ice)?

⠀⠀⠀ ⠀

 

Have spent the weekend on the country side and taking our green hippie van Don for a very first ride
– can’t wait for the spring and to go on a real road trip, we are actually already planning our first one that will take place in April!!

Paris

This is the last picture taken of me as a 25 year old, at a balcony in Montmartre with the most beautiful view over all the rooftops behind me.


↟↟↟

Me and Thilda are always trying to go to Paris every spring just to breath the french air, stroll around on the streets looking at curly haired french guys smoking cigarettes and eat croissants. Sometimes there is nothing better to run away and escape for a while. All cities are like love stories. Paris is our lifelasting. It had been raining for the whole week, but rainy days in Paris is still better then a rainy day anywhere else.
⠀⠀
Here is some pictures from our Parisian adventures from the past years.

Early morning beach strolling

To wake up with the sun and go down to the beach (…and when the clock strikes 8, it’s almost to hot to do anything else but to swim in the ocean) was exactly what we did our last morning in Honolulu before we went to Hilo. Back in snowy Stockholm, it feels almost like a dream.
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
I have been living in these linen pants from Ewa i Walla’s new collection and they are so amazing in every way.

Golden Child

Looking at these pictures brings us back to when we where strolling around in an amazing park in Big Island, just a few hundred meters close to the hostel we where staying at. The park was kind of inspired by typical Japanese Gardens.. It was like they created a miniature landscape with amazing and big threes, small three houses and more. Walking around there and drinking beer was one of the highlights of our Hawaiian trip

2016 was the year when a gentle purple rain slowly fell over us, the year when darkness came crawling and covered the earth, but to quote the great Cohen ”there is a crack, a crack in everything, that’s how the light gets in”. However difficult and impossible it may seem to see any positive effect of this year’s events maybe there has to be a darkness for the light later to show.

⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
2016 was the year when so many innocent people fell victim to no purpose. We wish it was possible to rewind time and make things right, but unfortunately it’s not possible.

⠀⠀⠀ ⠀
Let’s make 2017 the year of change, so we proudly can look back and remember that 2017 was the year when we stopped focusing on and fighting over our differences. The year when we realized that we are one.
As the great Martin Lurter King once said ”I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: We Hold These truths to be self-evident, That all men are created equal. And so even though we face the Difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. ”
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀

We hope that in a few years we will look back at 2016 as a trial. We still have so much to learn.
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀

In a few years, when we look back upon 2017, we wish, with all our heart, that we remember it as the year when we realized that we are united. The fact where we realized that we are united and that there is so much greater than our differences. That we live on a planet orbiting a glowing star in the space where there is, against all odds, life. Looking at the earth from space you’ll see a whole, green planet where no land borders is shown. A planet that is so beautiful and full of life, a whole planet with no territorial borders. Let us remember 2017 as the year of change.
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀

Promise us to be kind to each other, to love and to keep an open heart, to dare even if you feel scared. Together we can change the world to the better. It must be done now, we do not have time to wait any longer.
⠀⠀⠀ ⠀

And to finish this post, we would like to end it with a quote from one of the greatest prime ministers we’ve ever had ”det får inte finnas vi och dom – det finns bara vi”.
