This could be one of the most fashionable streets in the world. Here one finds the stores of Hermès, Lanvin, Chanel, Lancôme, Yves Saint Laurent and so on. It´s a true joy just to wander around and watch the beautiful crowd.

Roasted chestnuts

When walking the streets of Paris in December the air is filled with wonderful smells of roasted chestnuts, vin chaud and freshly made waffles.

French delicacies

While in Paris I wouldn´t miss the opportunity to pay a visit to Ladurée to buy some Christmas presents. Jewellike macaroons in soft pastels, delicious chocolates, teas and marmalades all in beautiful packaging.

Well groomed

These are my two favorites for achieving well groomed brows. The tweezers from Tweezerman, which I found in a small pharmacy when visiting Montréal, really do the job in an excellent way.  The Mac eyebrow pencil  is slim, self-propelling and self-sharpening, which is very convenient when you are in a hurry most of the mornings.  My favorite color is Lingering, a soft, flattering taupe .

For me inspiration is everywhere. I can find it in beautiful coffee table books, in glossy fashion magazines, while readíng or viewing television and movies. Although my greatest source of inspiration is the men and women who have that special sense of style that truly enhances their personality.

Gingerbread cheesecake

Every year we invite family and friends for a small pre-Christmas party. This year our guests were treated with mulled wine, saffron bread and a delicious gingerbred cheesecake.

A beautiful Christmas home

I love the pictures from this elegant Stockholm home found in Sköna hem´s 2010 December issue. The dark wooden furniture against the light background and the mixture of beautiful old pieces and modern details really create a lovely Christmas home.

Filofax update

Today I`ve updated my old Filofax with a 2012 refill. Though it´s been a true companion during the past 15 years I must admit I´m a little bit tempted replacing it with one of these beautiful LV one´s.
