I wonder if I could be a barista. I love to watch them at work - how fast their hands move as they navigate the grinding, then the coffee-making ( see, I really do have a lot to learn ), the milk-frothing. So much care and precision put into each. There are times I regretfully… Continue reading musings :: alicia vikander.
I've already remarked in the past how the Swedes are infallibly cool, all that grunge, alternativeness and envy-spiking tans. They've got the art of natural down pat, and design skills galore.

They have that ultimate new-age, flower-child, seriously peaceful look. It's like an eternal season of spring in their world - one where you frolic in fields… Continue reading musings :: the first aid kit girls.
This has truly taken advertising to a new level. As a way of displaying the homelessness in Gothenburg, Sweden, typical areas where the homeless reside have been photographed in a magazine-like way. Just picture an outdoor hotel. And they manage to make these sites look appealing for a night's stay. I found myself saying, 'oh… Continue reading faktum.
