Check These Out

One of the blogs I like to read, Niotillfem, is Swedish - I think. To be honest, until really recently there was no translation, now there is extremely brief translation (that doesn't even begin to touch on the text of the post), and I can't seem to figure it out. So if it's Norwegian or Finnish or some other Scandi language, my apologies...

Point is, this woman takes awesome pictures. And because I really don't know what she's saying, I've got it in my mind that she's a very privileged, very chic young person who's living the high-life with her (seemingly zillions of) friends in one beautiful locale after another, looking fantastic all the while. Do you agree?

Recently she did a post about A Home For Alice. Have you heard about this project? Billed as a "world wide art project", the artist (Alice) is compiling photos and written descriptions from people all over the world who write to her to tell them why they feel at home in their homes.

Something tells me Miss C. should give this a go. Her outrageously splendid home would definitely make the cut.

Wish me good shopping vibes (the kind that bring gorgeous finds at an absurdly low price) and I'll write when I'm back from Mtl.


  1. Oh, you are so dear to say that! I'll check this out . . .

  2. Each "entry" in "A Home For Alice" is very personal and homemade-looking, if you get what I mean. I love how each person's essence is captured for a split second.

    I like the Niotillfam blog, too, but feel at a loss for context. Thanks for giving me something to divert myself!

  3. Could she be any cuter? All the boys have fabulous haircuts and look like they just stepped out of a magazine. Wow! You can imagine any sort of scenarios with their lives. How fun!

  4. Fashionpuppy: I love it when people tell me I'm right!

    Miss C: Your house deserves a spread in H&G!

    Enc: The loss for context can be good (i.e. for the imagination) or irritating (when you just want to know what's going on). That woman seriously goes to the best parties in the world. Her work parties are hip.

    Marth: I thought you'd like those boy's haircuts!

    IM: Honestly, I'm surprised you haven't made a guest appearance yet.
