Seriously. Who does not want to send Lotta Lundgren and Emi Guner free clothes?  There are not many other people in the Swedish, or German, Media that I feel more respect for and at the same time make me smile.

But last week I could not help it: I was craving for spekkoek. 1,5 years ago, for Easter Dinner, I was introduced to this Thousand layered Indonesian-Dutch Cake (Indonesian – Lapis Legit) that my friend Robin van der Kaa made. It is a relic from … Read More

City dogs need holiday

My friend Rahel has a Weimaraner named Finn. We all knew that there is something very special about Finn. Finn has been photographed by Mario Testino. And modeling for Stefanel.

I tried it on friends already and it … Read More
