Swedish winters are long, dark and cold. They are really hard and often I wonder why I live here. But as a contrast we have wonderful summers where the sun only sets for a few hours and Stockholm's archipelago is simply breathtaking. This short trailer by Kalle Gustafsson reminds me of why I put up with the winters. Do click to view full screen, it is worth it. Via Est.
Have you seen my guide to Mallroca in the latest issue of Est Magazine? If not you have to head over and have a look. The 7th issue of Est is just stunning and filled with gorgeousness. I am honoured to be a part of such a talented team.
I hope 2013 brings you lots of joy and that you allow yourself to follow your dreams. Take a few minutes to be inspired by Alan Watts. It is not an easy question to answer, but what do you desire? xx Mrs. J.
Hi lovelies, hope you have been well. Just returned from our 2 week honeymoon in United Arab Emirates and Oman. If you follow me on Instagram you already know! We had an amazing 2 weeks. I needed this 2 week break from blogging, all my other must and my never ending todo list. It was wonderful to live the s.l.o.w l.i.fe. with my hubby and son. We truly got to spend some quality time together, we laughed a lot and created new memories that I will cherish forever. The above photos are from my Instragram feed and were all taken at the simply amazing Six Senses Zighy Bay in Oman. More about UAE and Oman in the future.
My life has been quite crazy this past fall and will be for quite a while. I am juggling a lot. My life has felt like it has been on fast-forward and at times I have been overwhelmed. While we were away I decided that I need to slow down. One of the areas that will be affected is Simple Blueprint. Don't worry I will continue to blog but when time allows me to and when I really feel like it. Some weeks I might blog everyday and some weeks I might only stop by with one post. I am simply removing the pressure of having to blog everyday or a certain number of times each week. I truly hope you will still follow me and remember that you can also find me on Instagram (simpleblueprint) and on Pinterest. Happy December and new week! xx - Joanna
