Totally Totême.

The other day I found myself browsing through net-a-porter, seeing what new things they had in store, and adding my favourites to my wish list. It wasn’t until later when I was reviewing my updated wish list that I noticed something interesting: most of the new additions were from Swedish brand, Totême. Started in 2014 by couple Elin Kling and Karl Lindman, Totême, has gone from strength to strength being featured in publications such as Harper’s Bazaar, Vogue and WSJ (Wall Street Journal’s magazine). Looking at their clothes, one of the main things I love about the brand is the easiness and simplicity of every piece, as well as the casualness and effortless chicness about the pieces (you guys know how I love my clothes simple and casual). I also love how everything could just as easily be paired with jeans and sneakers, or with a mini skirt and heels. Here are a few of my favourites from net-a-porter.

Island.

Today’s Soundtrack is another Florida Georgia Line good’un from their latest Dig Your Roots album. I’ve had this album on repeat all week long so naturally it made sense to share one of the songs today. ‘Island’ is a romantic song about a man getting lost in his girlfriend and the world disappears whenever they are together. I love the broodiness and depth of the lyrics and melody, and the way this song gives me chills with every listen.

Happy Sunday.

Across The Oceans.

Like last week’s Soundtrack, today’s also comes from Uncontrollably Fond. While the drama wasn’t the best I’ve seen (the last two episodes in particular were a bit of a let-down), the soundtrack was really good and worth a listen. I’ve had this song on repeat for the last few days, and it’s perfect if you’re looking for a song with good vibes and full of refreshing energy – perfect for starting the new week.

Oh and if you’re looking for something new to watch, why not check out Falling For Innocence? Happy Sunday.

A Little Braver.

This song from k-drama Uncontrollably Fond has been stuck in my head on and off ever since I first heard it over four weeks ago. This song is eerily beautiful and haunting, and always sends chills down my spine with every listen. Even though the song is a bit grey and melancholic, the lyrics give that little glimmer of hope for the future, making the song perfect to listen to if you’re feeling down and need a pick-me-up.

Oh and what do you know, today marks five years with this blog! Happy Sunday.

May We All.

Today’s Soundtrack is another song from Florida Georgia Line’s latest album, Dig Your Roots. I first watched the video earlier this week, and I’m not ashamed to say that I’ve watched it every day since its release. The song itself was one of my favourites from the album, so I was looking forward to seeing what the boys would do with the video, and they really didn’t disappoint. The video is quite emotional, so if you’re prone to crying make sure you grab your tissues before you press play.

Happy Sunday!

Smooth (Live on the Honda Stage at the iHeartRadio Theater NY).

To celebrate the release of my favourite country duo’s latest album, Dig Your Roots, today’s Soundtrack is a live version of their sexy, feel-good song ‘Smooth’. By the end of the first verse, you’ll be grooving like nobody’s business and then before you know it, you’ll be singing along to the music… smooooooooth😉

I’ve waited so long for this album and I’m really excited about it. I can’t wait to share more songs from the album with you. Happy Sunday.

Darkness Within.

Earlier in the week I spent the day catching up on Suits (I’m so excited that it’s back!!!!!!!!!!!!!) and it’s better than ever! The first episode takes place a few hours after the end of season five, and though it was quite predictable, I loved seeing the gang together and the soundtrack throughout was amazing – as usual. This song played at the end of the first episode and it fit so well with the dramatic, tense ending.

I can’t wait to see how the rest of this season will pan out. Happy Sunday.
