Thank you Jessica and Shayne for inviting us to this awesome party every year that makes me feel like I’m part of a mad man episode and that gives me a chance to wear my fancy dresses. I work in an office you know.
Hope to see you in the summer for a double date on motorcycle!

Bottle-feeding a siamese cat.

DSC_0817 kopiaThis is one of my favourite things to do for sure. I tried this when he was a kitten just for fun and then I stopped once he grew older. I wanted to see his reaction after 1,5 year and well, he still goes bananas every time he see the bottle. You know, screams the way only a siamese cat can scream. Youtube it.
DSC_0822 kopiaIts just that now he is fucking heavy.DSC_0839 kopiaDSC_0849 kopiaDSC_0836 (kopia)DSC_0858 (kopia)DSC_0859 (kopia)I just had to share this!

Lobster and pirates

DSC_0091 (kopia)After driving all night we arrived in Maine and Maurizio wanted to go whale watching so thats what we did. I wasn’t really in the best mood after only sleeping a few hours in a car and then board this whale watch boat in the rain. We never brought any rain clothes with us either so it was basically 4 hours of constant freezing and very little whale.DSC_0132whalwDSC_0061 (kopia)DSC_0032k DSC_0076Whale watch popcorn cafe!
DSC_0073And this is basically what we saw. The atlantic ocean was very pretty though!DSC_0020Our captain looked just the way a captain is suppose to! Like, hello, he is wearing a fish shirt!DSC_0078 DSC_0088 DSC_0092Then we ate tons of cheap lobster for lunch at a bar close to the dock where the guests all were men in their 60’s that looked like real pirates and that asked me and Maurizio if we were some kind of rock star couple.
DSC_0098Night came and as usual Im the one entitled to ride all the carousels with Jacqueline!
DSC_0102Namnlöst-1Something I in fact love.

the goldfinger dress.

I was invited to see the Antoine Laoun show from the Vip section at Festival Mode et design in August and I took Jacqueline with me.
I convinced her to wear black to look older because I was afraid they would not let her in with me.I was wearing the dress that made me feel like a golden goddess statue. Cant go wrong.The reason for my invitation is this shoot I did for Antoine Laoun and you can see it here or on St.Catherine or in the Montreal metro. It felt awkward and awesome at the same time to find a picture of myself in the goodie bag. Highlights from the Antoine Laoun show.Forever 21 highlights. Mondrian lookalike.I always meet Christine at all fashion events in Montreal! She is apparently known locally  in television here in Quebec but since I don’t have a TV at home I’m always clueless. One of my favourite pieces from UNTTLD that I also saw at fashion week in February.
The back is just amazing!And then we had these awesome feminists entering the stageThey got the chance to do some sexy moves before the security guards came running like angry elephants. And shortly after that we could enjoy some more Unttld. Maurizio came later on and bought me one of my favourites:  Dry martini. Perfect ending of a fabulous evening.

Festival mode et design is happening every year in August and is open to the public. Here is their website.

Maid of the mist

Saurday June 30th. Dayton, Pennsylvania
We drove by Pennsylvania on our way back home to Montreal and I met my mothers cousin Lars Rosell for the first time and his wife and their 7 dogs! Amazing.Lars used to be in a band called Rockabilly junction and I got to see and touch a guitar that Elvis basist had tried at one point.  Cool!I was mighty impressed by this, too!We also drove by Niagara falls on our way home. It was magical.So we decided to go on the maid of the mist boat tour. Mau is in the hood
One size fits all.

Monticello villa rotunda.

Friday June 29th. Monticello, Virginia.

And we drove off to Monticello. Maurizio drove like a robot for like 6 hours during the night through a tornado. I woke up because the car was shaking and I remember it was such a pain getting gas in the middle of the night since all the electricity was out at all gas stations.  
When we finally reached Monticello we drove to the house of Thomas Jefferson and slept in the car in a parking lot. And then you finally wake up in a hot car under the gazing sun and it feels like you haven’t had a shower for days and you need to change clothes in the car and cannot really put together a nice outfit.
Road trip times, oh sweet road trip times.

Monticello feels just like Italy! Its just as warm and the landscape looks the same.Robot boyfriend that drove all night. Love you baby.The grandiose house of Thomas Jefferson. You gotta show the world that you’re the president of America and the master mind behind modern democracy!Obviously he was inspired by Italy also in the design of this renaissance villa rotunda-house. I have a slight memory of seeing this house in an architecture book in school. Wine cellar door. I want a door like this. Sturdy. Steel. Wood.Big ass party in tha Jefferson house! Wine and dine til you die! Porcelain.Morgonbad. Farmland.and so we walked down the mountain.
Then I got this awesome drink book in the gift shop. This is where I find the recipe for beer battered beans, Dr pepper dip sauce with grilled shrimps wrapped in bacon, honeybee drinks, southern comfort drinks and other yummy alcohol based brewages served in beautiful crystal glasses. Very, very Southern USA.

Fifteen reasons why I love Charleston.

Friday June 29th. Charleston, South Carolina.

Breakfast in a South Carolina jungle!middle balcony was ours.So we went out in the heat on the streets to explore daytime Charleston.They had some Swedish souvenirs here strange enough! The flea market where you can buy handmade sweetgrass baskets and other cute and useful things.Then we went to the shopping street.Charleston has got one of the prettiest shopping streets. They make Forever 21 look like a nice little private owned clothing store. Almost. 
And we ate lunch at this awesome sea food restaurant by the water.

After lunch we went to the beach and took a quick dip in the hot sea. I can’t think of anything better right now than huge, heavy waves that covers me from top till toe in the blink of an eye. Bam.
But we had to be realistic and realized we had about 3 days to get back to Montreal before vacation was over so we had to drive back up north. Otherwise we would have stayed. Forever.
Here is 15 reasons why:

1. Palm trees.
2. Warm sea with huge waves. (Sullivan beach!)
3. Heat. Because I hate cold.
4. The cutest city centre where the biggest of retail chains looks like that local village shop from the 1850’s.
5. The vintage shops are filled with goodies. FILLED. One even had a huge section with only Chanel.
6. Horses and buggies.
7. Nice people with funny accents.
8. Voted second best dressed city in America after New York.
9. Voted sexiest city in America. Voted the most friendly and most hospitable too.
10. The city started growing in the 1690’s. That’s old for being America, people.
11. It’s small and charming but still there is around 120.000 people living there.
12. The rainbow-colored houses.
13. Cheese and wine at 5 o clock on the porch.
14. Whiskey on the porch.
15. Cigarettes on the porch.
