Los Angeles_mapiful

Yes, I will admit it – I love travelling! And with travelling comes great memories, and one way I can both remind myself of these memories and have it look good on my wall as well is to get my favorite spots in the world printed as posters.

To get these prints made, I am using the website Mapiful that lets me easily choose any location in the world and get it printed on a poster in a variety of sizes. This time I chose, not surprisingly, Los Angeles and Barcelona. Los Angeles will forever have a special place in my heart for the fantastic 1,5 years I lived there, and since this where Stylizimo actually got started.

As for Barcelona, I was fortunate to get a trip there this spring from my fiancé and thanks to the fantastic suggestions and tips from you readers I got to experience the city from a completely different angle. This makes Barcelona one of my favorite cities to visit, which is why I had to have a beautiful print of it on my wall. I have a feeling I don´t need many glances on this before I have my next trip booked *smile*.

Do you have a favorite city? Or maybe you have a city that you are dreaming of visiting? If so, getting a poster of it on your wall is a great reminder for you to get the dream realized. And what is even better is that you now and until the 4th of July can get 10% of your order. Just use the voucher code stylizimo10 when you shop!

Mapiful is also offering free worldwide shipping for all orders over $60, so whether you are reading this sitting in Los Angeles or Ulaanbaatar in Mongolia (thank you for visiting my blog) you can have your prints delivered – for free.

I hope you will find something you like, and if you do please share it on Instagram using the hashtag #mapiful so I can see what you have done with your map!

Since it´s a rainy Sunday, we started our day with a long breakfast with freshly baked bread and coffee. Gotta make the best out of it, right?

Pink flowers in vase

An easy way to bring some color into the home is by using colorful flowers like I´ve done here. Then you can have a new color theme in the living room each week : ) It´s also fun to mix different kinds of flowers together I think –  I just love the mix of pink I have here ( put together by myself.. ).

Happy pink Friday from me!

Midsummer_head wreath

Tonight I´m off to meet some friends and celebrate midsummer, and in that occasion I´ve made myself a midsummer head wreath. Here is a little tutorial for you in case you want to make something similar. It´s very easy, and done is a few ; )

DIY midsummer wreath

THIS IS WHAT YOU NEED:

  • Hair band
  • Scissors
  • Thin green wire ( silver or gold is nice to if you have.. )
  • Flowers ( I used white Gypsophila paniculata / “Brudeslør” and eucalyptus  )

DIY_flower wreath midsummer

1. Start with the eucalyptus, and twirl it around the hair band. Use wire at the ends to hold it on place.

2. Use your scissors to cut the flowers in small pieces, so you can make small bouquets.

3. Start at one of the ends, and lay small bouquets of flowers in the same direction while you use the wire to hold them all in place.

Spray the flower wreath with some water and and put it in a plastic bag in the refrigerator until you are going to use it ( so it stay fresh ).

You can see the midsummer head wreath I made last year here.
 

HAPPY MIDSUMMER, EVERYONE!

Cloudy_Stylizimo shop

Let me introduce you to my new Cloudy pot, as I got some questions about if on Instagram when I showed this picture. The Cloudy pot is designed by Swedish designer, blogger and TV-star Hanna Wessman, and for me it was love at first sight when I saw it in Gothenburg a little while ago. I also like the fact that it´s possible to have it both outdoor and indoor, and I´m thinking of investing in some big ones for my terrace ( you might remember that I had it in my latest inspiration collage ?)

Anyway, I´m happy to say that the Cloudy pots now are available in Stylizimo Shop, and we have them in this dark grey, green and white in different sizes.
