Favorite luxury retreat

17:08 | March 20, 2017

It has become a tradition for us to spend some time at one of the Alila Resorts while we are in Bali. Last time we were at the Alila Villas Soori and this time we tried out the Alila Villas Uluwatu. The same Alila concept that we love but a different location. What we love so much about the Alila resorts is definitely the calming and sooting colors and the luxurious but yet simplistic feel of the resorts. I personally love that combination. It makes you feel close to nature because you focus less on distracting colors or details but more on the beauty of the Balinese landscape and the beauty of the simple things. For me this also helps me find some inner peacefulness. Other details I love about Alila and what really makes it stand out to me is this feeling of freedom to do what ever you want with your vacation and that you don’t have to worry about anything. A clear example of this is that every villa has it’s full case of products for your every need. This may sound like a very superficial and girly thing. But the knowledge of having everything from mosquito bite spray, to sunscreen to facial mists in my villa makes me feel so calm. Forgetting a beauty essential on vacation for me could be so stressful. I remember when I was in the Maldives and I forgot my hair ties. BIG mistake. Since all resorts has it’s own Island there is only one shop on each island and they didn’t have any hair ties. Not to exaggerate but it ruined some of the experience for me to constantly feel my sticky long hair against my back in that heat not being able to put it up in a pony.  It is a true form of luxury for me to know everything is there if I need it and I don’t have to worry about it. Now when I’m back home it’s so easy to day dream about booking a ticket and pack a minimal suitcase and just go without any stress about what I need to bring. Another thing I love is that they always change up their breakfast menu with a lot of exciting and healthy options each day. It really makes me feel like they care about doing something inventive and exciting for me to start my day in the best way. I also love the fact that you can choose upon your arrival weather you would want a full on butler service for your villa or you prefer to have help upon request. Again I just love the freedom of the choice.

What difference the Soori location from the Uluwatu location is that the Uluwatu location is situated high up on a cliff with magnificent views of the ocean and forrest. The lounge area which is hanging out from the infinity pool is iconic and having a drink there just enjoying the view is magical. The manager also told me that they are in process of building a Hakkassan restaurant just next to the Alila Villas Uluwatu resort that will be finished by the end of this year. Hakkassan is one of my absolute favorite restaurants so to me that just had me completely sold. They will also have a few suites there that I am sure will be out of this world. We also had the pleasure of trying their restaurant Quila which serves fine dining food but it also takes you on a full on experience for all your senses. I will tell you more about that experience in a later post.



A day at the Marylebone

18:27 | February 1, 2017

Usually when I’m in London I stay with my sister and then when we are in Stockholm she stays with me. A fine little arrangement we have. But this time she had hooked us all up with some hotel stays starting of with a beautiful day at The Marylebone hotel. We got a super cute little suite and I loved this specific rooms interior feel with the minty blue tones. The scent in this room is absolutely divine and makes you feel straight at home. I actually asked the staff about it and they told me it was specifically created for the hotel and that specific room. Wonderful detail! The feel of the hotel it self is extremely contemporary but with a very homie feel which is a hard combination to achieve. Especially at night with the fireplaces and all the sit down areas you really get the feel of you being in someone else’s Marylebone townhouse. The hotel is a part of the Doyle collection that has 3 different hotels in London with very specific styles that sort of suits the area that they are in which I really love. One of my favorite things about The Marylebone is actually the location since Marylebone is one of absolute favorite areas in London. It is super central yet very cozy with a lot of restaurants, cafes and shops. So if you’re ever in London, for what ever reason, I can highly recommend staying at this hotel because of the location and general feel of the hotel which has achieved the the feel of you being at a gorgeous 5-star hotel but still feel at home.

Vanligtvis när jag i London så brukar jag bo hos min syster, och när vi är i Stockholm så bor vi hos mig. Ett fint litet arrangemang vi har! Men den här gången så hade hon fixat att vi skulle få bo på lite hotell. Så vi fick en helt fantastisk dag på The Marylebone. Vi fick en super fin liten suite, älskade just detta rummets känsla med de mintgröna detaljerna. Doften i denna sviten var också helt fantastisk och någonting alldeles speciellt som jag kände med en gång. Den fick mig verkligen att känna mig hemma där. Jag frågade personalen om doften och de berättade för mig att den var speciellt framtagen för hotellet och för det rummet. Underbar detalj! Känslan på hotellet i övrigt är väldigt modern men ändå med en hemtrevlig känsla, vilket är ganska svår kombination att få fram. Speciellt på kvällen kände man verkligen som att man var hemma i någons Marylebone townhouse med alla tända brasor och lounge delar i olika rum. Hotellet är en del av The Doyle Collection som har 3 olika hotell i olika delar av London med väldigt specifika stilar som passar just de området. Något jag gillade speciellt mycket med just The Marylebone är faktiskt just området då det är ett av mina favorit områden i London. Det är verkligen centralt med massvis med restauranger, cafes och butiker. Så om ni någon gång är i London, i vilket ärende som helst, så rekommenderar jag verkligen er att bo på detta hotel på grund av området men också på grund av den generella känslan av att man är på ett lyxigt 5-stjärnigt hotell men fortfarande känner sig precis som hemma!


Good morning from Alila Uluwatu

 Love this bikini from Marysia Swim and my new favorite cat eye sunglasses from Le Specs. We spent this day recording some videos for different collaborations at our Villa at Alila Uluwatu. Love this pool villa so much! I will show you more of the resort and the inside of the villa soon! 

Älskar den här bikinin från Marysia Swim och mina nya favorit cat eye solglasögon från Le Specs. Vi spenderade den här dagen med att spela in lite videos till olika samarbeten i vår villa här på Alila Uluwatu. Älskar den här pool villan så mycket! Kommer visa mer av resorten och insidan av villan snart!

Dress from S/W/F , Shoes from Hermes, Hat from Maison Michele, Watch from Rolex, Earrings from Shai jewelry

I’m in Bali right now enjoying some work on the other side of the world. It’s always nice to change location! Right now we are at Alila Uluwatu. Absolutely amazing resort! We stayed at Alila Soori on our last visit here and I really love the atmosphere on all the Alila Resorts. I have really enjoyed wearing all my maxi dresses here as well! This one is a new favorite with some lemons on it! I really had a thing for yellow and lemons last year (like everybody else.) But it’s such a gorgeous color on vacation!

Jag är på Bali just nu och njuter av lite jobb på andra sidan jorden. Så skönt att kunna byta location lite! Just nu är vi på Alila Uluwatu. Fantastiskt resort här på Bali. Förra gången vi var här bodde vi på Alila Soori. Älskar verkligen atmosfären på alla Alila Resorts. Jag har haft på mig mycket maxi klänningar denna resan vill jag lova! En ny favorit är den här med små citroner på. Hade verkligen en grej för guld och citroner förra året (som alla andra.) Men det är en himla vacker detalj på semester inte sant?

Post in collaboration with Casall

Confidence bra, Long leg tights, Structured knitted jacket

I’m so proud of being the brand ambassador for Casall which is a brand that I have worn for years and really love when it comes to work out wear. I even love to wear some of their sports bras at home or to sleep in because they are just so comfortable and soft. And it’s what I love most about the brand also that it is comfortable, chic and clean. They just launched this new sports bra yesterday which is called the confidence bra. Compared to what I usually wear from Casall which has mostly been softer bras which is great for yoga or just regular gym work outs this is much more fitted. And since my favorite exercise is actually running or HIT work outs I just love this sports bra. I tried it out at the gym at Four Seasons resort when I was in Marrakesh and I went running – so impressed! Everything is super stable and yet it looks so good, especially with the zip in the front is such a nice detail. That they managed to make is so stable and look good at the same time is just what I’m looking for and I think most women look for in a sport bra? I wore it with these high waisted pants which is again so comfortable and you can fold the top part down if you want to make it more low waisted. But I just love it super high waisted like this! I think I wore these pants most of my trip in Marrakesh since we went back and forward to the Sahara desert which is like a 9 hour journey from Marrakesh by car. So I was wearing these the whole time and felt so comfortable.

Jag är så himla stolt över att vara brand ambassadör för Casall just nu. Det är verkligen ett märke som jag gillar när det kommer till träningskläder och jag har haft på mig deras kläder i flera år. Jag tycker till och med om att ha deras sport bh:ar hemma eller att sova i för de är så himla mjuka och sköna. Det är det jag uppskattar mest med Casall att det är så bekvämt men ändå skapar en chic tränings look. Dom har precis lanserat den här nya sport bh:n igår som heter Confidence. Jämfört med vad jag brukar ha från Casall vilket mest varit anpassat för yoga eller lättare gym träning så är den här mycket mer stabil och håller in mer. Min favorit träning är faktiskt att springa eller köra HIT så den här sport BH:n är helt perfekt för mig. Jag testade den på gymmet på Four Seasons i Marrakesh och sprang där – så imponerad! Super stabil men den är ändå så sjukt snygg, speciellt med dragkedjan där framme som är min favorit detalj! Att dom har lyckats få den så stabil, skön och ändå snygg är precis vad jag letar efter i en sport BH. Jag tror de flesta tjejer gör de faktiskt! Jag hade på mig den tillsammans med dessa byxorna som har hög midja som man även kan vika ner om man vill ha lägre midja och skapa en annan look. Men jag älskar de uppdragna såhär – och så bekvämt! Jag hade på mig dom så mycket den här resan då vi åkte fram och tillbaka ut till Sahara öknen som är typ en 9 timmars resa från Marrakesh med bil. Så jag hade på mig dessa i sort sätt hela tiden, bästa!
