spice

I love when the PR agencyx27s get creative with packaging. When I got back from Hong Kong this box was waiting for me at the office with the latest Jägermeister Spice flavoured with cinnamon and vanilla. I just love the illustration (of yours truely) on the coasters. Definately bring this set out next time I have my girls over.

Karl's Emoji's

Ok so seriously this is one of the best apps to come out of app store since Candy Crush- Emojix27s featuring Karl Lagerfeld, his kitten Choupette, and his many glove dressed hand gestures. How much do we fashionistas love this? The only down side is that the app doesnx27t link with your iPhone keyboard like your regular emojix27s so you canx27t use them in your texts but you can save them to your photos, link directly to instagram, facebook, twitter etc. Ix27ve been having fun with this for the past hour and a half haha.

Having to work on vacation isnx27t quite so bad when itx27s to this view. This is where I spent my day yesterday, poolside with my computer, planning a new TV production, magazine work and going through the mailbox. Besides a break for a two hour Bikram class which Ix27ve started going to everyday. My back has gotten so much stronger!

answers pt. 2

1. what kind o food do u like?and what you eat regularly? I love all food! There really isnx27t anything i wonx27t eat. I love to try new things, and when I travel abroad I find it a necessity to try the street stalls, and local dishes. I cook about 6 times a week, we hardly eat out for dinner. I cook a lot of Asian, mostly Thai dishes such as penang gai, tom yam, som tum, and kao pao. A lot of pasta, stews, home made pizza, fish tacos and crazy soup combinations like lentels, tomato, butternut and pumpkin! 2. How do you keep your nicer things staying nice. Do you clean them or store them in a certain way to preserve them? Shoes, bags, jewelry, etc. I could use some advice in this area. I keep all my clothes hanging on wooden hangers. When we bought a new apartement a year ago i switched form a crazy mix of clothes hangers to all wooden ones, from white ikea hangers to a set of 20 Balenciaga hangers i got on E-bay. Jewelry i usually keep in the original box, and my shoes i display on shelves in our living room. The dream would be a walk in closet with everything stacked after color, designer and season. I keep all my original shoe boxes. I keep my fur coats/jackets in a cool dry place (the attic) during the spring/summer when i donx27t use them. I send my blazers and coats for dry cleaning rather than trying to wash them myself. 3. Hi Isabelle, I really like your posts but youx27ve never talk about your favorite places in Stockholm, I mean your favorite pubs or shops and what do you do in your free time...Ix27ll visit the city at the end of November, so you could give me some tips;) thanks,Monica Hi Monica! Ok to be honest I donx27t go out that much. I work a lot so when Ix27m free i like to spend my time at home. Rather than partying I prefer dinners at home or hanging out at friendx27s apartments for drinks. And since i work as a stylist, i hardly spend time shopping for me. My work basically involves me knowing whats in every store, I visit them all regularly for work related matters. But restaurants i like are PA & Co, Story Hotel, Riche, Papax27s and Story Hotel. Clubbing (which was ages ago!) but i prefer Berns or V. Enjoy your travels! 4. Hej. I visit Carolines mode and your page very often (maybe a little too often ;)) Any blogs (outside here) that you love? Hi! Oh gosh, I hardly have the time to visit other blogs outside the site. But recently i worked on a styling project that involved me keeping track/knowing what other blogers wrote about, I can say i didnx27t really get x27caught upx27 in anyone due to the amout of information I had to take in. I do check fashion gone rogue regularly for editorial/advert inspiration and style.com for fashion updates. I like The Cut as well. 5. Hello Isabelle! Your sooo lucky that you get to travel a lot!! Any tips? Do you makes friends easily? Tips when it comes to traveling? I prioritize my travels before trends, clothes, shoes or bags so I always save for that! I love seeing the world and my goal in life is to visit every country. So i have to hurry up, as an underlying goal, i have set a standard of 5 new countries a year, unfortunately 2011, i will only manage 3 new ones. Ix27m very social, and I reckon part of the experience of traveling is meeting new people and hearing their stories. My dream would be to travel the world full-time, perhaps have a travel show on TV, where i get to try crazy things in odd places. I would also love to highlight fashion and trends in different countries. 6. What is your skincare and make-up routine like? What products do you use? Please share Oh Ix27m so excited about this one, because soon soon soon we will be launching a new beauty site here on Carolines Mode which has been sort of like my little baby for the past month. I use dermalogica for my skincare and have done so for about 8 years. But right now Ix27m trying out Sensai by Kanebo and I canx27t wait to review it. Make up wise i use Bare Minerals mineral foundation and bronzer, MAC blush, and YSL mascara, and Kheils lip balm #1. Thats my everyday make up routine. If its the weekend i may vary with some eye shadow and eyeliner. 7. Hello, Isabelle! Whatx27s your best advice to someone who wants to get in the fashionindustry as model, stylist, assistant (to anything really) or to be a journalist or a reporter on a fashion magazine or so? Whatx27s the first thing to do and how do you market yourself? I want to in the fashionindustry when I get older, but Ix27m not sure how to expose myself, how to show them that I am something they can use and to place myself on the map - what are you best advices? Both studies, but also how I actually place myself on the map! And how do you get to go to all the Fashionweeks and how do you get invited to shows and stuff? I know it might be a silly question and a question hard for you to answer, but I donx27t know who to ask really... Love your blog btw, I try to read it every day! Keep updating! :) Hey! Ok, firstly i think you have to try to figure out what in the fashion industry you want to do. All areas are very different. Do you want to be infront or behind the camera? Do you see yourself writing or on TV reporting? Once you figure that out, which may be after a general course in the fashion industry, where i would recommend you to maybe study fashion history, since you are still uncertain of what you want to do in the business. Fashion history is a good base to have school wise no matter which area of fashion you are planning to work with. I would apply to intern or assist different stylist/editors/maybe even photographers, to learn more about the industry. Physical practice is the best education. Remember its all hard work, and not glamorous at all! Be ready to work hard, long hours and for little to no pay in the beginning. Model wise I dont know much other than, send your picture (clean polaroids, sans make up) to different agencies in your city. 8. how many readers do you have on your blog? =) I actually have no idea regarding the statistics, i donx27t check it, because its not the reason why i blog. I do it for me, the readers and because i love it, not for the numbers! :-) But the whole site and all of us here at Carolines Mode are doing a great job, and we are one of the top blog sites here in Sweden. 9. Hi ! I love your blog! I wanna know which key clothes you think are more important to any woman ? Thanks !! A good pair of jeans, in both denim blue and black. Skinny high waisted and flared. A cashmere sweater or two. Great basic tees and top. A good blouse preferably in a color such as navy, cream or jade green. The LBD and an LRD (litte red dress, especially if youx27re a brunette!), a good pair of heels, booties and ballerinas. And of course a good sequines piece, be it a blazer, skirt or dress. Something unique, that fits good, and that is a staple in your closet those times when you have clothing crisis! 10. Are you a fashion "purist?" Meaning, do you think once an individual resonates with a particular style (goth/prep/grunge/etc.), then veers in a different direction, it betrays whatever tradition wex27ve preserved in those styles, and s/he becomes a "poseur"? Are those subcultures even worth preserving? Oh gosh, thatx27s a deep one. I actually to be honest have no idea. My moto has always been, wear what you feel comfortable in! I donx27t follow trends, sure i pick up trends but ix27m not a slave. Trends come and go, look back every two years and its the same styles/trends coming again. I donx27t believe in magazine stories such as for example x27 find the perfect jeans for your shapex27 blah blah. I just think wear what you like, feel comfortable in, and what fits. Some people have that touch the makes them be able to mix different pieces well. Either you have it or you donx27t i think. If you like the goth style, the prep, the grunge, whatever works for you and makes you feel comfortable and makes you feel like you get to express yourself, than I say Good for you!

it's a wrap!

Finally (and sadly) we are done with the production! Itx27s been an amazing 8 days, despite long hours, way too little sleep (last night I got home at 3:30am!), loads of packing and unpacking, and ironing like a maniac. But I donx27t think Ix27ve laughed as much as I have done during this project, been as inspired by so many talented people, or had as much fun with a team as I have with the group behind this show. I am extremely proud of the results, everyone has looked amazing, and I canx27t wait for it to air sometime next year. As special thanks to my sidekick and my right hand. Today (after packing up everything), I moved on to the set of another production, which some of you Swedish readers may have seen the first episode off. Now Ix27m gonna catch up on sleep, get back into the blog updates, and finally get back to the Carolines Mode office tomorrow, Ix27ve missed my colleagues!

answers - pt 1.

Two things: what blush/tanner do you use (your skin is so glowy!) and do you colour your hair? 1. I use Bare Minerals warmth & MACx27s blush in the shade x27pinch mex27. No I donx27t color my hair, I used to to go darker each fall and blonder for the summer but now I havenx27t dyed my hair for about three years, so this is my natural shade. do you cut your hair on regular times? how do you stay fit? are there any pieces of clothing that should never miss from onex27s wardrobe?if so, which are those? 2. I donx27t cut my hair regulary. I cut it back in August and before that in April I think. I try to run and do interval training, but now I havent been out on a run for a couple of weeks due to my work situation and lack of time, plus it gets so dark now in Sweden, and I dont like running in the dark! I did Capoeira back in the spring/summer and I think Ix27m gonna start doing that again now that winter is here, perfect training for working each muscle in your body! I think a good basic wardrobe is essential in any womenx27s life. A good pair of jeans in both denim blue and black, basic teex27s in white, grey and black, a good cashmere sweater, the little black dress & and a black leather skirt, the perfect black blazer, a nice blouse, and a black pair of trousers in either a cigarette model or flared suit model. And of course a statement piece such as a skirt, blazer of dress in sequines, sparkles or something that glitters. I think itx27s important to invest in these items with quality, I know cashmere costs more than say something in polyester but itx27ll stick with you for atleast 10 years. From these basics you can fill up with fun items to your closet! how you define your style? And what are your favourites trends for these season? 3. Ix27d say my style is quite eclectic. I love color and structure in my clothing. But i do appreciate the essentials and x27wardrobe basicsx27. I tend to dress after mood. Ix27m loving pencil skirts at the moment, but other than that I donx27t think i pick up on trends that much. I buy what I like, what i think works for me, and most importantly what i feel comfortable in. Color wise Ix27m crazy for anything blue right now, and have found a new love for burgundy. Hey, Isabelle! Just bought a shirt (long, light beige, long sleeves, looks like boyfriends shirt) and reallized I donx27t really know how to wear it. What would be the perfect combination for it? (if you can get something out of my description) :) 4. Hey! I would pair it with some skinny black or washed out grey jeans, heels (if the weather allows) or a pair of brogues. Tuck it in, in the front of your jeans in a messy sort of way. Or pair it with a snug pencil skirt (maybe in dark blue or a forest green, Zara has some options) with bare legs! (again if the weather allows!) Good Luck! Hola Isabelle! ...that´s very kind of you. Thank you. You posted a very nice nude lipstick few weeks ago and I really would love to know which brand, number or name it is. And because I get my new Iphone tomorrow... do you use some running Apps??? Your blogg is a big blessing... may God protect your lovley heart. Greetings from Munich/Germany Tina 5. Hola Bonita! I think you mean my lipstick from Make Up Forever, its called Rouge Artist Intense #22 and you can get it at Sephora. I use runkeeper on my Iphone. Thanks! xx Hi Isabelle! First of all Ix27d like to say that I really like your blog! I read it almost everyday and I think you have a great style! Thatx27s why Ix27d like to know, what inspires you when it comes to getting dressed? And I read that you grew up in Bangkok; what is the difference between Thai and Swedish womenx27s style? I am interested in what kind of clothes people from other countries wear ! haha.. :) Greetings from Brazil, Sil 6. Hi Sil! Firstly, thank you! Oh Ix27m inspired by quite a lot but usually Ix27m so stressed in the morning that I put on whatever is comfortable, but when i do plan it out the night before, Ix27m influenced by great street style snaps and people i see on my travels. Yes, I grew up in Bangkok. Wow itx27s a big difference, or I mean Thailand & Sweden are very different worlds, and not everyone in Thailand as it as well off economically as here in Sweden, but if I should compare generally between women in Stockholm & women in Bangkok whom are in the same economic situation, I would say that Thai women are more polished, from perfect hair (always the perfect hair!), make-up and very well matched items of clothing from a scarf to their heels. Hi Isabelle! How long are you togheter with youre boyfriend? And can you once make a post of youre house/boyfriend? Im really curious! 7. Hey! Wex27ve been together for close to 6 years. You can see pictures from our home here, and when it comes to Marcus, well I donx27t think Ix27ll post pictures here since this is a style/trend/fashion blog, not a lifestyle one, but he may pop up on photos from our travels, but check out my facebook fanpage and there may be some pics there ;-) Hej Isabelle! Jag har en fråga kring ditt jobb på Carolinesmode eller vad man ska säga. Jag såg er livesändningsgrej och det såg himla kul ut, men vad är det ni gör egentligen? Är det som en slags miniredaktion för CMODE eller för hela sajten? Jag har aldrig förstått det och vad själva grejen ni tjänar pengar på, om du fattar vad jag menar. Kan du inte skriva lite om vad exakt ni gör? Stylistgrejerna och när ni har olika photoshoots och editorials, är det bara en hobby vid sidan av som ni också tjänar på, eller ingår det i jobbet? Äh, det låter säker jätteflummigt, men jag faaaaattar inte och jag vill veta, haha! Ditt liv och ditt jobb vekar sjukt kul, so thatx27s why... Och hur kommer det sig att du började blogga, och varför här? Och vad gillar du att laga för mat? Kan du inte ge lite tips? :D 8. Hej! Jag frilansar som stylist för bland annat TV, artister och tidningar. Utöver det driver jag min blogg här på Carolines Mode och då jobbar jag med att planera photo shoots, editorials, stilleben plåtningar, och recensioner för siten. Vi jobbar som en tidningsredaktion på kontor, skillnaden är bara att vår site är i blogg format. Jag jobbar periodsvis från kontoret beroende på vad jag har för andra uppdrag vi sidan om, som nu när jag jobbar med TV inspelningar så är jag inte på plats under en period. Jag började blogga först 2007 under eget domän men flyttade till Carolines Mode för ca ett och ett halft år sedan, då jag blev erbjuden. Jag älskar att laga mat! Thai mat är nummer ett, men lagar gärna allt möjligt från dumplings till risotto. Ska försöka lägga upp lite recept då och då. (Sorry guys, this one was in Swedish) Hi Isabelle ! First off all I like your blog very much and I like your style. I was wondering where do you get ideas for your outfits, or does it all come from your head ? What is youx27re hair treatment, because it look very healthy and full of volume ? My last question is how did you ?get? youx27re job or with other words did you go to any special school ? Thanks for taking your time :) 9. Hi Katja! Usually i just put on whatever I feel most comfortable in. Sometimes Ix27ll wake up at night with an awesome idea for what to wear and ix27ll quickly jot it down on my iPhone (i know, crazy!) so i wont forget when i wake up! But I also get inspiration from well dressed people on the streets and street style photos. I have extremely thick hair! I will post what products i use soon again. I try not to wash it too often, max twice a week. I took a fashion styling course a year and a half ago, after that i quite my old job to start my own company and freelance as a stylist. Itx27s a lot about connections, and working hard. Hi, that is a great opportunity you are giving us :) I would really like to know why you decided to become a stylist and what your steps were to accomplish this goal. Thank you very much and keep doing this amazing job. 10. I took a night course one night a week for 3 months, at first just as a hobby to do something creative during the weeks. But when it was over and I x27graduatedx27 I decided this was what I really wanted to do, so I quite my full time job in HR to focus on my dream. Itx27s hard work, I started with assisting and interning and from there it has led to getting my own projects. Itx27s long hours, lots of work, the pay isnx27t always good, your back will ache like never before from carrying so many bags, and its far from glamorous, but itx27s a lot of fun, you get to create, and you meet amazing people along the way!
