A Girl called Kristina
I hope you're all having a lovely weekend so far!
Today we're heading over to Stockholm to meet a new creative girl - Kristina.
She's a talented illustrator and fun time blogger who loves all things girly and beautiful!

Welcome Kristina!
Can you tell us what is currently inspiring you?
Currently I am very inspired by interiors.
I am in love with my IKEA catalog and too much time in my day is spent looking at blogs which showcase gorgeous interiors and design.
I can easily spend hours in magazine shops as well, flipping through home magazines from all countries.
I really want to start designing wallpapers and fabrics to be using in decorating gorgeous homes.

Name 3 things you couldnt live without?
Pretty pictures, beautiful music,
and my soulmate Johan.
Life would be so boring with out a little romance.

Can you define to us, your personal style?
My style is classic but not too boring, simple with somesort of twist,
sexy (not too showy), sweet but not too cutesy, and hopefully my own.
I wear a lot of skirts and dresses and feel most comfortable dressed up...I never ever ever wear sweats or casual wear.
I like to feel feminine, wear red lipstick, and not follow trends or ‘fashion rules’ (such as no white after Labor Day.)

Favourite colour (or colour combinations)?
I adore pink but I would say my favorite color is blue.
I love all sorts of blues, navy, royal, cobalt, light blue, turquoise, and especially Tiffany’s gorgeous signature blue. I think everyone and everything looks gorgeous in blue.

Favourite Smell/Frangrance?
Surprizingly I am not much of a perfume lady even though I have spent many hours drawing fragrances.
I very rarely wear perfume and if I do it’s something subtle like Stella McCartney’s 'In Two Peony' or Victoria’s Secret 'Divine'.
I adore smells from my kitchen like lime zest, smoky tea, rosemary (or any fresh herb), bacon, anything baking (especially if it involves chocolate), wine and even ripe cheeses.

What do you love about your City?
Stockholm is just gorgeous.
I especialy love that it is so close to nature and the water and quiet spaces yet also has a city centre that is interesting, cultural, and lively.
I love that you can walk through the entire city in just a few hours but you will never really discover every corner.

Do you have a favourite quote you'd like to share with us?
“In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different.”
-Coco Chanel
