3 MUST SEE SUNDAY MOVIES

Vet ni vad? Jag har sett en hel massa film på sistone! Nästan alla filmer jag sett har bearbetat ämnet relationer, inte för att jag medvetet valt det men antagligen för att jag tänkt så mycket på just relationer på sistone. Här är tre helt olika men mycket bra filmer som alla har gett mig nya vinklar och insikter kring ämnet. Anteckna titlarna och lova mig att ta fram dem en regnig dag eller kanske en chill bakissöndag som denna?

You know what? I’ve watched a whole lot of movies lately! Almost all them have processed the subject ”relationships”, not that I deliberately chose it, but probably since I’ve been thinking so much about relationships lately. Here are three very different but very good movies that has given me new perspectives and insights on the subject. Write down the titles and promise me to watch them on a rainy day or maybe a chill hangover Sunday like today?

LIFE PARTNERS

Pagie and Sasha are best friends. They do everything together, and when they’re not physically together watching top model, making sarcastic jokes about everyone and everything or drinking wine, they’re on the phone with each other. Even though they both agree it’s impossible to find a person that’s better than (or at least as good as) each other, they both half heartedly date guys (Pagie) and girls (Sasha). One day Pagie meets Tim (Adam Brody) and everything changes; Sasha isn’t Pagies number one anymore. This movie is about female friendship, jealousness and the struggle of growing up when all you want to do is eat mozzarella sticks, get drunk and just ignore stuff like responsibilities and boring work.

”Sasha: ”I guess I should have known that as soon as you found someone else to couple up with that you’d be done with me!”
Paige: ”Yes, I’m less available to you now than I was when there was no one in my life.”
Sasha: ”You still talk to someone at two in the morning. Nothing changed for you. It just changed for me. Can you acknowledge that, please?”

I really really loved this movie, I relate to exactly everything Sasha and Pagie are going through.

THE LOBSTER

This is a super bizarre yet brilliant drama comedy about David, who just got dumped by his wife. David lives in a society where all singles are forced to check in at a hotel where they have 45 days to find a new partner or else they will be turned into an animal (free of choice, David would like to become a lobster). Outside the hotel there’s a rebel group of loners who lives together in the forest.
This movie is a obvious satire of the society’s obsession of coupledom, and the fear of loneliness.

”Hotel Manager: Now the fact that you will turn into an animal if you fail to fall in love with someone during your stay here is not something that should upset you or get you down. Just think, as an animal you’ll have a second chance to find a companion. But, even then, you must be careful; you need to choose a companion that is a similar type of animal to you. A wolf and a penguin could never live together, nor could a camel and a hippopotamus. That would be absurd.”

This is an extremely beautiful movie with really dark humor that made me think. A lot. I really liked the bizarre atmosphere.

HOW TO BE SINGLE

I watched this movie since I helped promoting it before the premiere this spring. It’s a colorful, funny but very predicable movie about being single. Alice takes a break from her boring high school boyfriend to live and work in New York. She meets Robin, a crazy slightly alcoholic co-worker who helps her unleash and discover herself- and a bunch of one night stands.

”Robin: In every male-female friendship, there’s a total number of drinks and if you hit that, it means you will definitely have sex.
Alice: If I had more than five drinks, I would hook up with you.
Robin: My drink number is 27. I wouldn’t even touch myself on less than 24. ”

This movie is a typical romcom, it’s stereotypical and predictable. The characters are boring; the shy quirky main character, the chubby crazy friend, the beautiful ”grown-up” sister. We’ve seen it before. Still it’s very funny and at times very relatable and insightful. Actually kind of inspiring (I also got very inspired by Alice’s clothes). But be prepared at lame gender stereotypes!

Do you have any movie tips?

Yo! Jag är tillbaka i Göteborg och vädergudarna skämmer bort mig med sol och sommarvärme. Jag älskar att äntligen kunna använda mina shorts och klänningar igen, men ibland är det svårt att göra det utan att se lite för semesterchill ut, om ni fattar vad jag menar. Då gillar jag att addera detaljer som tillexempel denna stiliga klocka som piffar upp känslan lite.
Ni som följer mig på instagram vet säkert redan att jag är CLUSE watches nya ambassadör. Känns så himla kul att få samarbeta på long term med ett företag jag verkligen gillar. Ska bli så kul att få visa deras fina produkter för er! Vet att ni kommer älska dem!

Hey guys! I’m back in Gothenburg and the weather gods are spoiling me with sun sun sun these days. I just love being able to wear short skirts and tank tops again- but sometime it’s hard to make a summer-ish outfit like this not look too down dressed. My best tip for avoiding this is to add a stylish watch! Right now, I’m in love with this one by CLUSE – classy black with gold details. They just launched a new collection of 8 stylish models but this one (it’s called La Bohème) turned out to be my absolute favorite as you can combine it in so many different ways.
The ones of you who are following me on Instagram probably already know that I’m the new ambassador of CLUSE watches, but I want to write it here too. Hurray! It’s so much fun partnering up with companies you really like, I just can’t wait to introduce you guys to their products. I know you’ll love them.

Lacoste Pour Elle- Natural, Sparkling, Elegant

Hej vänner! Minns ni plåtningen jag gjorde med Lacoste i somras? Det är äntligen dags att visa upp resultatet och berätta lite om samarbetet! (haha, projekt med större märken kan verkligen ta sin tid att utvecklas från produktion till produkt, det är så himla många mellanhänder inblandade)
Hela samarbetet handlar om lanseringen av EAU DE LACOSTE L.12.12 Pour Elle fragrance collection, en parfymkollektion inspirerad av den klassiska lacoste-tenniskjolen som i decennier gett kvinnliga tennisspelare frihet och självförtroende. Tre dofter ingår i parfymkollektionen; Natural, Elegant och Sparkling. Jag har parats ihop med Natural-doften, som passar mig absolut bäst i både smak och livsstil. Ni vet alla hur viktigt jag tycker det är att hålla fötterna på jorden och att hålla sig i kontakt med naturen. Men mer om det senare!
De kommande veckorna kommer jag publicera alla bilder från plåtningen och berätta mer om samarbetet! Staaay tuned kompisar!

Hi friends! Do you remember the shoot I did with Lacoste last summer? It’s finally time to show results and tell us about cooperation! (Haha, projects with big brands like this really takes time, it’s important that everything is perfect)

This cooperation is about the launch of the EAU DE LACOSTE L.12.12 Pour Elle fragrance collection, a perfume collection inspired by the classic Lacoste tennis skirt which for decades has been giving female tennis players the freedom and allowed them to be their true selves- sparkling, natural and elegant. That’s actually also what the three fragrances of the collection are called: Natural, Elegant and Sparkling. The Natural fragrance is a perfect match for me in both taste and lifestyle. You all know how important I think it is to keep the feet on the ground and stay connected to the nature. But more about that later! The coming weeks I will publish all the pictures from the shoot and tell us more about the heritage! Cant wait!

John Frieda Lightening shampoo, Lightening Conditioner and Lightening treatment

När jag var på denna plåtning för några veckor sedan snackade jag lite med hårstylisten Andreas från John Frieda om dessa produkter. Någon vecka fick jag tag i ett par flaskor att prova hemma, och jag måste säga att jag är mycket nöjd såhär långt! Jag är ju lite smått besatt av att bleka bort alla pigment ur mitt hår, men efter att ha rådgjort med x antal frisörer har jag sakta börjat inse att bleka håret mer vore en dum idé. Dessa produkter ska däremot ljusa upp stråna på ett mer skonsamt sätt- utan peroxider. Dessutom kostar dessa tuber knappt 12 euros, alltså en bråkdel av vad ett frisörbesök skulle gå på- så varför inte? Jag har använt dem i två veckor och tycker mig ana en skillnad redan nu, blir spännande att se vad framtiden har att komma med! Puss!

When I was at this photo shoot a few weeks ago I talked a little with the hair stylist Andreas Wild from John Frieda about these products. A week later I got hold of a few bottles to try at home, and I must say I’m very pleased so far! I’m a little bit obsessed with reducing the pigments of my hair, but after consulting with x number of hairdressers I’ve slowly started to realize that bleaching the hair more would be a bad idea. The Highlight Activating Shampoo and Conditioner from John Frieda will however make your blonde color shine brighter in a gentle way, without peroxides. I’m also especially a fan of the in-shower lightening treatment. You use it like a normal hair mask, and the treatment just takes 5 minutes. In addition, these fellas cost just under 12 euros, a fraction of what a hairdresser visit would cost, so why not? I’ve used them for two weeks and think I sense a difference already, I’m excited to see what the future has to bring. Kiss!

MY GUIDE TO SILVER SHAMPOOS

grg2

Får mycket frågor om silvershampon så därför tänkte jag posta en liten mini-guide till hur jag normalt använder det medan jag springer runt i Paris med Krille.

APPLICERING
Vanligtvis applicerar jag shampoot på torrt hår med hjälp av en kam så att hela håret blir blått och sätter sedan upp det i en knut. Vill jag få det riktigt kallt och använder ett schampo jag vet inte har extremt mycket pigment lämnar jag det i över natten (och sover med en plastpåse på huvudet för att inte fläcka ned kudden, haha) eller går omkring med blått hår en hel dag, men oftast kör jag typ fyra timmar eller så länge det passar. Sedan sköljer jag ur och använder gärna en bra hårinpackning direkt eftersom silverschampo sliter ganska mycket på stråna.

I get a lot of questions about silverschampoos so therefore I thought I’d post a little mini-guide to how I usually use silver shampoos while I’m running around in Paris with Krille.

APPLICATION
Usually I apply shampoo to dry hair using a comb until the entire hair is blue, and then just put it up in a bun or something. If I want to get the color really cold and use a shampoo I know isn’t extremely pigmented, I leave it in overnight (sleeping with a plastic bag on my head so the pillow won’t get blue, haha) or walk around with blue hair all day, but usually I leave it in like four hours or as long as it fits my schedule. Then I rinse and afterwards I like to use a good hair mask since silver shampoo is kinda bad for the quality of the hair.

PRODUKTER
Dessa är de schampon jag använt:
Rapunzel Of Sweden- Detta är min favvo just nu, det har inte jättemycket pigment så det passar perfekt att ha över natten. Det drar mycket åt lila-hållet vilket jag gillar eftersom mitt hår har lite gula pigment kvar och därför gärna blir turkost/grönt.
Loreal- Detta är lite för blått för mig, har dessutom en lukt jag verkligen inte klarar av (??), men set är ju en smaksak. Inte jättemycket pigment.
EXIT silver shampoo- EXIT är ett svinbra hårvårdsmärke som jag använder mycket, och detta silverschampot håller standarden. Ganska mycket pigment så det passar bra för en två till fyra timmars behandling.
Swiss- Detta silverschampo ÄGER eftersom det kostar ca 2 EUR på Rossmann och DM i Berlin. Kan alltså slösa hur mycket man vill. Har väldigt mycket pigment och är ganska blått i färgen. Vet inte om det går att köpa i Sverige dock.

PRODUCTS
These are the shampoos I’ve used:
Rapunzel Of Sweden- This is my fave right now, it doesn’t have a lot pigments so it is ideal to have overnight. The color is more purple than most other shampos which I like because a little yellow pigments remains in my hair and therefore easily gets turquoise/green combined with too blue pigments.
Loreal- This is a little too blue for me, it also has a smell I really can’t stand(??), but that’s of course a matter of taste. Not a lot of pigment.
EXIT silver shampoo- EXIT is a really really good hair care brand that I use a lot, and this silverschampoo is just as good as I would Imagine. Pretty much pigment, so it is suitable for two to four hours of treatment.
Swiss- I loove this silver shampoo because it costs about 2 EUR at Rossmann and DM in Berlin, haha. In other words you can waste much as you like. It has a lot of pigment and is quite blue. Probably not the best quality but it’s totally worth it if you don’t like spending a lot of money on haircare.
