Brunch spot in Paris: Cafe St Regis

18 February, 2019

 

BRUNCH SPOT IN PARIS: CAFE ST REGIS. One of my favourite areas in Paris is Ile Saint Louis, a picturesque little island located in the heart of Paris, surrounded by water and beautiful views over the neighbouring areas. When I lived in Paris back in 2013 I lived in St Germain des Pres, one of the cosiest areas of Paris in my opinion The area is filled with so many neat bistros, art galleries, antique shops, restaurants and wonderful shopping. They offer everything from the big international high end brands to smaller boutiques offering a wide selection of brands, ranging from high to low.

Something that Johan and I always used to do during the weekends when he came to visit me in Paris was that we used to take a walk along La Seine from St Germain des Pres to Ile Saint Louis to eat brunch at Cafe St Regis. The venue is bright and airy, filled with big windows letting through the light, allowing you to look out on the people passing by, listen to the sound of the street musicians playing the piano on the bridge, this little island is filled with so much life. The ambiance inside of Cafe St Regis is always buzzing, filled with laughter and people talking, it’s a popular place, especially during the weekend when they serve their mouth watering brunch (Their french toast is not to be missed) so make sure to come here in time before the queue has started to take form. If you are not that in to french toast I can also recommend you to try any of their egg dishes which they are very known for.

 

Location: 6 Rue Jean du Bellay, 75004 Paris

Celebrating our 6 month engagement

12 February, 2019

 

CELEBRATING OUR 6 MONTH ENGAGAEMENT. Johan and I were recently in London looking at apartments and during that week we also celebrated 6 months as engaged which we celebrated with some champagne in our hotel room before we went out to eat dinner at a lovely Italian restaurant in Belgravia. I wore a new dress that I recently bought from Ida Sjöstedt that I really love, I’m thinking about buying it in another color as well, I think it’s such a fun statement dress.

I have gotten quite a few questions regarding my engagement ring that I thought I would answer in a post here on le blog. We created my engagement ring at our jeweller Strömdahls, all my jewellery come from them. The sapphire is a 4 carat Ceylon sapphire surrounded by 1,3 carat of diamonds, then I also have the diamond eternity ring that Johan proposed with on Sardegna. I’m turning 30 this May and for my birthday I’m wishing for either a diamond/sapphire bracelet that will go very nicely together with my tennis bracelet or a necklace with a sapphire and diamond pendant, like my ring but slightly smaller, perhaps 2-2,5 carats. A piece that I can wear throughout my life, always remembering my 30th birthday.

 

CELEBRATING OUR 6 MONTH ENGAGEMENT. Jag och Johan befann oss nyligen i London för att leta lägenhet och i samband med detta så firade vi även 6 månader som förlovade vilket vi firade med lite champagne på hotellrummet följt utav middag på en underbar italiensk restaurang i Belgravia. På mig så hade jag min nya klänning från Ida Sjöstedt som jag köpte här om veckan, älskar modellen och funderar på att köpa den även i en annan färg, såg att den även fanns i beige samt svart.

Jag har fått många frågor kring min förlovningsring, vi gjorde ringen hos vår juvelerare Strömdahls, alla mina smycken komma från dom. Älskar att dom enbart jobbar med högsta kvalité och allt dom skapar är ett absolut hantverk samt att dom är ledande i Norden på just safirer, smycken som kommer kunna gå i generationer. Safiren är en 4 carat Ceylon safir omringad utav 1,3 carat diamanter och ringen är gjord i platinum. Valde att göra båda ringarna i just platinum då det är den mest hållbara metallen. Fyller 30 år nu den 12 Maj och det enda jag önskar mig är antingen ett diamant/safirarmband som jag kan bära i kombination med mitt tennisarmband eller så funderar jag på ett halsband med en safir omringad utav diamanter, som min ring fast lite mindre, runt 2-2,5 carat. Ett smycke man kan bära med sig för resten av livet, ett himla fint 30 års minne.

Starting the new year in Paris

23 January, 2019

Photographer: Mon amour

 

STARTING THE NEW YEAR IN PARIS. It felt absolutely wonderful to start the new year with a celebratory weekend in Paris with my love. We recently celebrated 6 years together so we decided to book a romantic weekend to Paris to celebrate. We checked in to one of our favourite boutique hotels in Paris, le Grand Hotel du Palais Royal, which is a marvellous hotel located in the heart of the 1st arrondissement, just next to Palais Royal. This area of Paris is so charming and has some of the best restaurants in the city, I can give you a few of my best tips in a coming post if that would be of interest.

The shopping in Paris is as great as always and I have bought many new pieces for my closet during this trip, one of the pieces is the bag from Mulberry that I’m wearing in this post. I fell in love with the model and its color, it truly is the perfect everyday bag.

 

STARTING THE NEW YEAR IN PARIS. Det kändes helt underbart att starta 2019 med en romantisk get away till Paris. Jag och Johan firade nyligen 6 år tillsammans och vi valde att fira det i staden som vi båda älskar så mycket, le Paree! Jag kommer ihåg när jag bodde i Paris under våren 2013 och Johan kom och hälsade på mig 1-2 veckor varje månad, jag älskade min lilla lägenhet på Rue Jacob i St Germain des Prés och alla underbara minnen vi har från den tiden, det kändes verkligen underbart att fira vårt 6 års jubileum i just denna stad.

Vi checkade in på ett utav mina favorit boutique hotell Grand Hotel du Palais Royal, lokaliserat precis invid le Palais Royal vilket är en helt underbar del utav Paris, i denna delen så absolut kryllar det med några av Paris absolut bästa restauranger. Kan tipsa er om några utav mina favoritrestauranger i området i ett kommande inlägg. I detta inlägg så tänkte jag nämligen bjuda på en outfit, bär min nya väska från Mulberry som jag precis köpt, absolut älskar modellen samt färgen, den perfekta vardagsväskan!

My skincare routine

21 January, 2019

 

MY SKINCARE ROUTINE. I absolutely love trying new skincare products and I’m always on the hunt to find new favourites. I have currently found a couple of skincare products that I really love and I have been using them everyday for the last 2 months and my skin has entered a whole new level of hydration. I’m currently looking for a new favourite in terms of eye cream or eye serum for that matter, I haven’t found one that I really really love yet. Do you have any recommendations of what eye creams I should try?

 

– Omorovicza Queen of Hungary Mist: I absolutely love this spray mist, after cleansing my skin in the morning (And at night) I spray my face with this mist for extra hydration before I apply my serum.

Perricone MD PRE:EMPT Series Skin Perfecting Serum: I love serums and I love this one from Perricone MD. I apply this serum after I have cleansed my face and applied my mist from Omorovicza. I apply this serum on my face and neck and let it sink in before I apply my daydream or night cream.

Transderma Vitamin C Serum: This serum is absolutely excellent, I can highly recommend you to try it. I usually go for this serum 2-3 days per week and my other serum 2-3 times per week. I always apply my serums after I have cleansed my skin so the serum can go as deep as possible into the skin.

Dr. Barbara Sturm Face Cream Rich: I love rich creams in terms of skincare that I apply after that I have applied serum to my skin. I love to give my skin as much hydration as possible and this rich face cream from Dr. Barbara Sturm does exactly that to your skin. I apply this cream during my nighttime routine as it is very rich and it can work its magic throughout the night.

Dermaceutic Laboratoires Regen Cutic: This is my daytime cream that I apply after serum before I start applying make up. It’s still a rich cream but not as rich as Dr. Barbara Sturm. This cream from Dermaceutic works its magic and firms up your skin immediately. I absolutely love it.
