Today, Sweden celebrate midsummer with the blue and yellow flag raised and likewise the traditional “midsommarstång”, decorated with flowers. Friends and family gather to eat good food (especially fresh Swedish strawberries), dance, play games and just relax in, hopefully, the warm, sunny, bright Scandinavian summer evening.
Tonight the sun sets a little after 11 pm, but still the darkness keeps away and about 3 am the sun rises again. It’s happy times and the fact that we’re already going towards the darker season doesn’t matter. It’s summer!
Have a happy midsummer evening!

The South African doctor, Sonnet Ehlers has invented a condom that feels like a knife when penetrating. It is supposed to “prevent” rapes. Or at least make the rapist come to a hospital afterwards, which will make it easier to arrest him. The condom can only be removed by a doctor.
I can understand the idea. But somehow it doesn’t hold up. Won’t it make the woman feel more vulnerable and afraid when always reminded of the risk? And what if she actually want to have intercourse, she’ll have to visit a doctor first and afterwards she’ll have to go to a doctor again to put it back in. Seems complicated.
Kind of a bad idea, if you ask me.

Tomorrow it’s wedding time and I can hardly wait to see my very best friend walk down the isle and say “I do”.
I’m wearing a Norwegian “bunad”, that my mum was sweet enough to lend me and because the summer really really have come to town it’ll probably be extremely hot. But what don’t you do to look your best.
I came over some pictures of Malene Birger’s spring/summer collection, don’t they look comfortable? I wouldn’t mind wearing them in the heat of sun.
Have a nice day, all!

Those classic vintage photos. They just catch my eye and I have to save each and everyone of them. I can’t help it, my computer is filled with them. I often wish we still had those clothes and those hairdos. And that special way of photographing. Sure, every digital camera on the market today can probably take such pictures, but still.. it’s not the same, is it.
Here’s a little (!) peek at my collection.
