the lion and the unicorn.

So the past couple of weeks have been quite hectic. I have had contractors in and out the house to refurbish our flat and I have had my family over from Sweden. In addition to all of this it has been mad busy at work as we have been launching our sale in store. But that's all good because I have some pretty exciting plans ahead that I will reveal shortly.

Anyways .. I came across this installation in front of the Royal Festival Hall at Southbank here in London during a day out with the fam. It's created by artist Gitta Gschwendtner who has worked together with 50 young asylum seekers and refugees to create a fluttering wall of poems. I just thought the whole piece was so beautiful and the way they were representing their thoughts about freedom and fear just had to be documented. So I snapped a couple of images for you guys to see. Not quite sure if it is still up (I hope not as it has been raining like crazy the last couple of days) but if it is .. it is definitly worth taking a trip down.

"Freedom is never dear at any price. It is the breath of life. What would a man not pay for living?" // Mohandes Ghandi 

The thought behind it is quite similar to a project I was working on 3 years ago. I'll try to find some images of that to show you later but right now I gotta run. Ciao for now / P. x

bring the spa home.

Wouldn't we all want to go to the spa ... like everyday? And haven't you all noticed that the most intruiging and interesting treatments at the spa are the ones that are the simpelest? I am not so fussed about big, clinical words that I barely understand but to think that remedies containing words like "hot stone" or "tropical mousse" could be the answer? That always catches my eye.

Well anyways here's another great anwer. If it's all natural .. Make your own! I have long read about this coffee scrub treatment that would rejuvinate your skin and even out any bad fatty tissues and impurities. And I had also read peoples comments about it and it seemed to really work. So instead of buying one I made my own.

Here's the recipe:

2 cups of used ground coffee (if you're not a coffee drinker like myself, Starbuck's can help you with this)
1/2 cup natural sea salt or raw sugar
1 tablespoon of massage oil
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1/2 cup brown sugar to make it sweeter (optional)

I have used it once already and it felt really nice so will definitly finish my jar! And for all of you that don't really care about things like this .. how about making a cool, embellished or painted jar and give it away as a gift?

And for all you that do .. make it and try it. You will love it! / P. x

Let's hope for better weather tomorrow! / P. x

Sunday, 3 July 2011


So I am thinking about all my future plans and how I want to go ahead with them so I have decided to take matters in my own hands tomorrow and start to do some research .. Contact a few distributors and companies and see where things go from there. Have had a very relaxing day today which has allowed me to think through my goals. Has been quite inspirational actually .. Sometimes you need "me-days" I guess .. Weekend has been great btw. Already longing for the next!
