  • Had dinner with my friend and previous colleague Kicki who is the master mind behind Daisy Beauty, - Swedens leading beauty Magazine. It had been as much  as 1,5 years since we last saw each other so I was really happy to get to steal her from her deadline for a couple of hours. I booked a table at Bardot wich is a new classic / chic restaurant in Östermalm. I had expected something somewhat calmer (we tend to speak a lot so when it gets too loud it's tiring to sit and yell for 3 hours) but it was full on party at 21. The food was great with an exception from a disappointing créme brûlée so I do recommend going but if you are tired then Monday - Wednesday is probably a better choice than Thursday- Saturday. If you are in the mood for a cocktail, they make a nice whiskey sour. If you are there on a busy day you are going to need one.

    Bardot is situated at Ingemar Bergman's Gata 2 in Stockholm

  • I have a weakness for sweets and I adore Pärlans Konfektyr in Södermalm, it's the perfect go-to place for pressies.

    You are always greeted with a smile, soft jazz tunes and traditional home made fudge. 

    Pricy? Yes. Worth it? Yes.

  • My dear friend Louis just dropped by with theese amazing wooden spoons that he made me before taking off to India for six months. 

    They are carved in mahogany and oiled with almond oil.

    I have so many smart, beautiful and creative people around me and it makes me truly happy when people follow whatever they are passionate about. 

    A fourth spoon is in the making but it's still a surprise, - I'm excited to see it! 


    Love, Christine Deckert
