More from NYFW! I know I’m a bit slow with the update here loves. I have just been feeling completely uninspired with blogging lately so my other channels like Instagram and especially YouTube has taken over for me completely. I think it’s like that with everything that you have been doing for a really long time. Even if something is extremely fun when doing it as a profession for too long everything just feels like boring work. I have been blogging for over 10 years now. I envy other bloggers that still have the same passion for it but I just don’t feel it at the moment. I personally don’t read blogs myself and much more prefer YouTube. If I visit a blog it’s mostly just to look at pictures and see what friends and colleagues are doing. So I have been taken some time now to reevaluate what I want to do here on the blog for you guys but also for me to personally feel that it’s fun and something I enjoy doing. Mostly I want to be proud of my blog, how it looks and what I do. Now it’s like the last thing I would ever present to a client or talk about. And it shouldn’t be like that. I owe you guys who has been following me since the start my whole career! So let’s do something fun here. I will have a re-launch of my blog in the beginning of May and I hope you’ll bare with me until then! Lots of Love, J ;)

Mer från NYFW! Jag vet att jag är ganska långsam med uppdateringarna just nu mina fina. Jag har bara känt mig så otroligt oinspirerad till att blogga på senaste och mina andra kanaler som Instagram och speciellt YouTube har tagit över totalt. Jag tror det blir sådär med i stort sätt allt som man har gjort under en väldigt lång tid. Även om någonting är väldigt roligt, som att just blogga, som föddes ur en hobby för mig. Så blir det bara tråkigt jobb efter att man haft det som yrke under en längre tid. Jag har bloggat i över 10 år nu. Jag avundas andra bloggare som fortfarande känner den där passionen för bloggen och skrivandet. Jag känner inte det alls just nu. Personligen läser jag inte bloggar själv utan föredrar YouTube. Är jag inne på en blogg kollar jag mest bilder eller för att se vad mina vänner och kollegor i branschen gör. Så jag har tagit lite tid nu att tänka över vad det är jag egentligen vill göra här. Både för er men också för mig personligen, att jag ska tycka att det känns roligt. Mest vill jag bara känna att jag är stolt över min blogg, hur den ser ut och vad jag producerar för content här. Nu är det i stort sätt det absolut sista jag någonsin skulle presentera för en kund eller prata om. Och så borde det ju inte vara! Jag är ju skyldig er som följt mig här längst hela min karriär! Så låt oss göra någonting kul här. Jag kommer ha en re-launch av min blogg i början av Maj och jag hoppas att ni följer med mig där också. Lots of Love, J ;)

Home is where..

In collaboration with Mapiful

Home is where your Mapiful is! I love this idea that you can search for any part of the world on their website and make a poster out of it! For example I can search for Ramlösa where I grew up or I could search for a favorite holiday destination like Maldives. To me it was most fitting to have it in my bedroom where I can sort of dream away to my favorite location! Malibu is the type of place that I wish to live someday so for my it is somewhat of a vision board to have it next to my bed. Right now you get 15% off with the code JOHANNA15.

Home is where your Mapiful is! Jag älskar idéen att man kan ta vilken del av världen som helst och göra det till en poster man kan hänga på väggen! Jag hade exempelvis kunnat ta Ramlösa där jag växt upp eller en semester-favorit som Maldiverna. För mig var det mest passande att ha min Mapiful i sovrummet där jag kan drömma mig bort till min destination! Malibu är ett ställe där jag gärna hade bott någon dag så det blir lite som en vision-board att ha den där bredvid sängen! Just nu får ni 15% med koden JOHANNA15.

In collaboration with Batiste

A must have for me to always have with me in my gym bag and on all my travels are my Batiste Dry Shampoo. I think it’s one of the absolute best dry shampoos ever (and I have tried a lot of them) and it is also one of the most affordable ones. Which of course is a win! I love the smell of all of them as well. The fact that you can get them for dark hair is also a plus. But I don’t think the classic one makes your hair that white anyway so I tend to go for either of the two. One of my absolute best tips for when you want to try and wash your hair less often and to also look good after a visit to the gym!

Ett måste för mig att ha med mig i gym väskan, på alla mina resor, och ja i alla mina väskor är ett torr shampoo från Batiste! Jag tycker de är ett av de absolut bästa torr shampoo som finns (och jag har provat en hel del) det är också ett av de billigaste. ÄLSKAR när man hittar såna produkter. Sen gillar jag att man kan köpa för mörkt hår också så att det inte blir helt vitt, brukar föredra det när jag har nyfärgat hår men tycker faktiskt inte att deras “classic” blir sådär jättevit så brukar variera mellan de två. Torr shampoo är mitt absolut bästa tips för när man vill börja tvätta håret lite mer sällan och även att vara snygg efter gymmet!


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.
