Elin shows us the simple and lovely things of life, adorning her post with beautiful pictures that normally makes her look like a lovely fairy, and the world around her looks like an enchanted dream.
I had the pleasure of ask Elin some questions about her, so we can all know her a little bit better, and she has responded me in that magic way that she do things ... so ...
Q: So, first of all, could you please tell us who you are and a brief description of you?
A: My name is Elin, and I live in a tiny apartment with my boyfriend in Ystad, Sweden. I like pretty dresses, Alice in Wonderland and photographing.
Q: What do you do? What do you like to dedicate?
A: Well, I try to blog as much as I can, and I also work as an insurance salesman.
Q: Can you talk a little about your interests?
A: As I mentioned I like to photograph a lot, and because I'm an amateur photographer I'm always trying to learn new tecniques, and new ways to use my camera. Also, I like to go shopping, especially at vintage shops and big flea markets!
Q: Tell us a book, an album and a movie without which you could not live.
A: For a book, Alice in Wonderland. That book just makes my imagination go crazy, and if I could choose the whole world would be a bit more magical, you know, with talking rabbits and weird laughing cats. For an album; I must say "The Life Pursuit" by Belle and Sebastian, because I can listen to the songs on and on, and they always make me feel calm and happy. I would describe the feeling like sitting below a giant rainbow with soft sunshine in your face. And a movie... I have so many to choose from in this category, since there's lots of movies I like, but a couple of my favourites are The Wizard of Oz, Alice in Wonderland, Wall-E, My Neighbor Totoro, Le fabuleux destin d'Amélie Poulain...

Q: Oh yes, I love almots all those movies too!... so... Would you share with us a memory that makes you smile?
A: Of course! There was one time, about six months ago, when Joakim and I helped two of our friends move into their apartment. When you enter the building there's this wooden door with a big window in the centre, and when I ran towards it to open it and get into the building I tripped on something and fell right into the glass door. I was quite chocked by the whole thing, and fortunately the door didn't broke, but they said that I looked like a cat jumping into a window and just sliding down towards the ground.
Q: And any favorite quote?
A: More is more.
Q: Now a little bit about fashion... At what age did your get interested in the fashion world?
A: Maybe when I was 16 or something.
Q: Could you explain us a bit what has been the evolution of your image?
A: I just wear what I like, and that of course depends on weather, what mood I'm in or maybe what I feel inspired by.
Q: How would you describe your actual style?
A: Fun and playful.
Q: What inspire you in choosing your clothes? Do you follow a pattern to match your clothes or just choose randomly?
A: I have some favourite combinations, but I try to vary them.
Q: Where do you usually get your clothes? Do you customize or sew any garment to you?
A: I mostly get them at H&M, Topshop and from vintage shops. Sometimes I make my own dresses and skirts, and sometimes I just remake old clothes.
Q: Have you got any special obsession (like shoes, bows, skirts...)?
A: I really like lipstick. A great lipstick can make a whole ouftit wonderful.
Q: And now about blogging... When and why did you decide to start writing a blog?
A: I think it was in my second year of high school. I did it because I wanted to inspire others like they inspire me!
Q: That's really beautiful... What do you want to express with your blog? Do you think it adds anything to the people who read it?
A: I want to inspire, and I want my blog to be a blog that I would like to read.
Q: What do you feel when someone says you are his/her inspiration? What would you say to those people?
A: I'm just grateful that they feel that way, it's feels good to make people feel inspired, because I love the feeling of it myself.
Q: Tell us a tip for your readers...
A: In life, just do what you think feels right, but never forget to have fun!
I think that's a very good tip for everything in our lifes... Thank you so much Elin! I hope you'd keep inspiring us for a long time... well, you always inspire me!!
