  • I took a break from writing this summer as I wanted to spend as much time as possible with our little one. Having a child is such a wonderful and transformative experience and I felt that I wanted to live in the moment and take it all in. As I've had a chance to do so I'm happy to be back to share some highlights and hopefully keep updating a bit more frequently this fall. We're spending a month in France soon and I aim to write at least 2 updates per week.

    One of our highlights this summer was our trip to the West Coast to see my family. It's been a tricky year, but when Albert was 7 months old, we felt that it was time for my family to meet him, so we quaranteened for two weeks and drove to see them. 

    After a few days we got chased out of the house by my lovely family members as they thought we deserved a night on the town just the two of us, and since Albert was in safe hands, we asked our friends where to go in Gothenburg if you love natural wine, awesome food and a bit of ambiance. 

    We did this : 


    Natural wines, small dishes and appetizers, Champagne and a lovely little garden. 

    Kyrkogatan 13, Göteborg

    Restaurang Natur 

    Natural wines, delicious food with carefully selected produce and great service. 

    Geijersgatan 12, Göteborg 

    Unity Jazz Club 

    Live jazz, cocktails, natural wine and craft beer.

  • I was recently invited to experience the “3D Collagen Shock” treatment with luxury brand Natura Bissé at Care of Skin in Stockholm. I predict great success for the brand as it connects with it's somewhat slim target audience over time. The products are expensive but highly sophisticated and effective and the treatment was both relaxing and quite shockingly transformative. Hello jaw lines! Unfortunately I have no photos from my experience and the results but I do absolutely recommend the treatment. The day after was my 34'th birthday and I got to welcome it feeling like a princess.

  • I had quite the treat at BABOR's new Flagship store this morning - I had been craving a facial for quite some time. I love being a mother but it comes with little sleep and my skin's need for hydration was urgent to say the least. I went with the 50 minute Doctor Babor facial and I felt like a new person afterwards. Or well, a far prettier one, at least. 

    Located at Humlegårdsgatan 13,  BABOR offers five luxurious treatment rooms and a spa-menu suitable for all. Modern luxury at it's best and quite possibly the nicest in-store spa in Stockholm at the moment. 


    Love, Christine Deckert
