One of my favorite events of the year in Gay Pride. I love the festivities, color and overall how everyone is so happy to come together and celebrate love and respect for each other. Reykjavik Pride brings thousands of people together and it lasts for little under a week. The parade starts today at 2PM from Hverfisgata by Ingólfsstræti to Hljómskálagarður Park. See you there 🙂
At Sturegatan in Stockholm you will find this amazingly beautiful flat for sale. I am a total sucker for Scandinavian interior, everything seems to be so clean, crisp and bright. I love the use of windows in this flat especially the one that separates the bedroom and the bathroom. I will let the pictures speak for themselves. For more info look here. Make sure to follow us on Instagram: Reykjavikfashion Hope you are having a great week 🙂
The Slut Walk will be held for the seventh time tomorrow with over a thousand people participating in solidarity for victims of sexual assault. The slut walk is an international movement where the main goal is to call for an end of rape culture, victim blaming and slut shaming. Some people dress “slutty” for this walk , others wear statement t-shirts. The point is that you should be able to dress however you want – whenever you want!! Nobody wants to be raped, no one is asking for it – however you choose to dress is not an invitation to be assaulted in any way. I urge for everyone to take part in this important movement support this cause and stand by the victims by showing zero tolerance towards slut shaming and sexual abuse. The Slut Walk starts at 14.00 pm going from Hallgrímskirkja down to Skólavörðustígur towards Austurvöllur. I hope to see you there marching in your sluttiest outfit ( or whatever you fancy wearing ) !! Follow us on Instagram: Reykjavikfashion #Druslugangan #hofumhatt
My parents invited me for lunch the other day at The Marshall House. The building at Grandi hosts the art gallery Kling & Bang , The Modern art museum, a restaurant and of course the fantastic workshop and exhibition space with works by Ólafur Elíasson. I took a few photos, I will let the pictures speak for themselves. I will be doing a post about the roadtrip I took to the Westfjords soon so stay tuned !! Follow us on Instagram: Reykjavikfashion
I am going on a four day camping trip ending with a country wedding in the Westfjords. I have been looking forward to it all summer and that is partly because I haven’t really had the chance to explore the Westfjords and partly because this will be my first country wedding. I have been thinking about what to pack for the trip all week, unfortunately the Icelandic weather isn’t that predictable so you have to be prepared for any weather. I thought I would share with you a few of the things that I am bringing with me on the trip. Inflatable airbed: Sekkur.is Backpack: Hrím Sunnies: Lindex Hat: Lindex Dress: Geysir Water Bottle: Hrím Poncho: Icewear Rainboots: Geysir I will keep you in the loop on Instagram: Reykjavikfashion so keep an eye out. I will write a post about the trip when we get back next week 🙂 Have a good one lovelies !!
I decided to push myself a little bit, I wanted to try and challenge myself by doing new things everyday. So I set myself a seven-day-challenge. Nothing radical but I will definitely take somethings with me and try to create some healthy habits. MONDAY I wanted to start the week out by doing a little exercise, and believe me I am way way out of shape. A friend of mine was up for being my running partner and we decided to run 3 km around the Laugardalur area. She was so patient with my as I had to stop and walk A LOT during our workout. Doing some kind of an exercise is good for the brain, it stimulates you and gives you energy it also boosts your self-confidence. You don´t have to go running or do anything major, just by taking the steps instead of the elevator each day , can do wonders. TUESDAY Being creative can sometimes be hard and believe me I know, so Tuesday was all about creating something new. I had been wanting to learn how to use a sewing machine and I decided to go for it. It is OK to start out small, I had a pair of leggings that I wanted to fix, hole in the crouch is not a good look. Next time I will challenge myself to a bigger project. WEDNESDAY Weather you are a creative writer, musician , have acting skills or none of the above, it can be good to challenge yourself a bit in the creative area. Some people like to write down their thoughts , for me , my creative outlet is my piano. I can sometimes forget all about the time when I start playing. When I play I feel like I can let…
I had a good friend from Denmark visit me early this summer. We had a blast together, went to Secret Solstice music festival , reminisced and laughed A LOT !! I have been really lucky in life, had the chance to live abroad both in Denmark and the UK for the most part of my teens and early twenties. I met many people, some of them are still my friends today others I keep in my memory bank- we just somehow drifted away. Friends are like snowflakes – if you pee on them they disappear. TRUE , yes it is true 🙂 A friendship is something that needs nourishment, it is a two way street. I have never had to “brake up” with a friend, some people come into your life when you need them and then they go away just as quickly as they appeared. Friendships can also be poisonous , drag you down. You might not even notice it at times – you might feel bad about yourself and you either draw people towards you who are in the same way or you might drawn to people who also are having a bad moment. I think we all go through bad times and good – thats only normal. The hard bit is to recognize what steps to take when you do. I was having a hard time doing Reykjavik Fashion and Design, I didn’t feel supported and almost felt like it was a waste of time. My danish friend helped me, gave me a good pep talk, a pad on the back when I needed it – but was also the one who said ” Björg, get back on the horse – move forward – I believe in you. ” It gave me energy, strengthened me and gave…
There are so many beautiful old houses in Reykjavik, especially in the downtown area. I live in what they call the “old west-side” of Reykjavik and in that area you can find many of the old town houses. Many of these houses have clearly drawn inspiration from Scandinavian designs and I just recently spotted that my dream house has been put on sale. I put a few pictures here and if you want to get more information have a look here.
Anderson Pack, Big Sean and Rick Ross were so great last night, as I listened to their music I fell straight in my element and completely forgot how tired I was. Unfortunatly our camera got a little bit wet on saturday so the pictures from the last day are a little bit dark but here you go.
We got to Secret Solstice just in time to hear Rottweiler scream “if you have chlamydia raise your hands ?!?” over the crowd as they started playing the next song “negla”. The crowd was super energetic and Rottweiler managed to keep the dynamic atmosphere to the max. I was eager to see Prodigy and oh boy they didn’t disappoint, I was actually quite surprised to find out that I recognized a lot more songs than I thought a would. The rain was pouring down but people didnt seem to mind and let the music take over , creating mosh pits everywhere in front of the stage. As usual we took some shots of all the happy people and the great atmosphere at Solstice.
