CAMERA FOR BLOGGING

Let’s talk photography… I collaborate with my super pro Jennifer for most of my photos but when I’m out on my own attending events and or just home capturing my dinners or flowers I make the photos on my own. Before I even started my blog (in December last year) I decided to buy a good camera as blogging is all about the pictures in my opinion. So what is "good camera for blogging"

I decided to go for Sony Alpha 5100 as it’s a “smart camera” with touch screen, digital transfer to my phone and also a video camera (although never used…). I even love my camera so much that I made it drink coffee after my first week of having it; I dropped my coffee cup all over the lens which of course broke and I needed to pay a fortune to get repaired. Well, I love my camera and I can warmly recommend it. If I make some sort of selfie pictures I have a small tripod to stabilise the picture.

Now it’s time for me to prepare for my photoshoot with Jennifer tomorrow, we are going to shoot a couple of summer looks; dresses, heels and hats.

THREE THINGS

Hi there, Three things on my mind right now; One, I hope your day is as sunny as mine! Two, I really feel like sharing this beautiful inspiration from Alexander White, an apartment to die for and Third and last; the divorce of Isabella Löwengrip.

I find it shocking and I can’t stop thinking about it. She has been one of my role models for a long time, and somebody that seemed to have such a good balance between business and family life. And on Sunday they announced the divorce. I feel so sad for her, she said in her previous blogpost that she’s lending an apartment in Stockholm city and I wonder how that split will go with her having all the success and her husband who’s the more passive one. It will for sure go down in Swedish history where the essence of gender equality and roles never been more present. And it reminds me to never take love and happiness for granted.

Isabella wrote on her blog something like...

"Your company will never wake up and say they don't love you anymore". True words...

SUNNY SIDE UP

Good morning, I finally opened my bedroom blinders and and felt a hint of summer. It’s already 22 degrees outside and I started my day with a power walk. There is nothing better than to breath the fresh air and listen to the birds in the morning. Apart from listening to birds I listened to Framgangspodden, a special episod about meditation and self control. I find it interesting how one can control our own minds and thoughts and direct ourselves to more success and happiness.

Instead of thinking when you wake up “I wonder what will happen today” you can wake up and pre decide “this will happen today”. Your ego is the one deciding most of the feelings and actions in your mind, like small thing as to itch when it’s itching, look at your phone just because you have the urge to or shout at someone because you feel angry. These actions consume our time and controls our behaviour. I end it there and let you do your own research. The point is, don't let your ego drive you; drive your own ego.

PASSPORT
Good good morning, This week will move fast as I have some exciting plans in front of me with both a photo-shoot with Jennifer and a long weekend in Venice.
Do you travel with or without your passport? I always travel with mine, as here in Switzerland it can be tricky sometimes. When coming back to Zurich from abroad they sometimes asks for identification and if you then show a Swiss identification like drivers licence or similar, they will always start asking for more when they see my last name and hear my accent. And sometimes, they can be very rude. So from experience I always bring my Swedish passport with me, even if the rules tells it’s not needed. It’s time for the week to begin, and have my first cup of green tea. Have a lovely one!

BELONGING SOMEWHERE
bloggers Zurich

The importance of belonging somewhere is so important for us humans, and I admit; very much for me too. Especially when it comes to a profession, do you know the feeling of suddenly being surrounded by likeminded individuals and how much energy that gives? That is how I felt the other day at the Westwing event. Being in a group of extraordinary women; super beautififul and intelligent and with a passion for social media and endless discussions about photos, tools and software and for the occasion also interior. It’s nice, just so nice to feel that I’m belonging in this group of professional bloggers. Because blogging can sometimes feel very lonely.... In addition to this I must say I’ve reach a personal goal. I wrote on my blog in January 2017, 10 days after I started my blog that I will strive to be among the top ten bloggers in Zurich. Now I am. I found this fantastic quote by Stephen Chbosky; that describes my feeling last Thursday; “I don’t even remember the season. I just remember walking between them and feeling for the first time that I belonged somewhere.”
