If I were to design my dream home, I would take a lot of inspiration from this Stockholm Apartment by Oscar Properties. High ceilings, spacious living room and kitchen, sophisticated and clean lines make it looks so relaxing and modern.

Buy this chic little denim dress from ASOS!
Eat this deliciously simple salad! Recipe here.
Read Why Female Lawyers are still shamed for caring about clothes. I sympathize with the author about the way she feels pressured to conform to the work uniform. I don’t see how someone’s clothes at a corporate environment needs to be strictly regulated as long as it looks polished and professional. A little style doesn’t hurt anyone.
Watch 1864. A Danish drama from BBC Four about three childhood friends during the Second Schleswig War fought between the Kingdom of Denmark and the German Confederation.

I recently bought this Bec & Bridge striped dress and even though it’s a little pricey ($200.00), I feel like it is worth the investment. Instead of buying two polyester dresses for $50.00 a piece that will look old in a few months, you can buy this dress and wear it everywhere because stripes are never out of style.

1) A conversation with Camille Paglia. One of my favorite things she said was “Western culture is in decline. There’s absolutely no doubt about it, in my view, looking at the history of Egypt, of Babylon, of Byzantium, and so on. And so what’s happening is everyone’s so busy-busy-busy with themselves, with this narcissistic sense of who they are in terms of sexual orientation or gender, and this intense gender consciousness, woman consciousness at the same time…” Read the whole interview here.
2) A conversation with a self-made billionaire, Brunello Cucinelli. One of the many quotes from him that I love was “Those who come to me and say, “You know, I work 15 hours a day,” I say, “I am not interested.” I am interested in the quality of working hours, not the quantity. The brain of the human being. Do you think that during the first five hours of the day you are the same as you are in the last five hours? No way. You’re tired, and if you’re tired, you stop listening, and the decisions you make are risky.” Read it here.
4) I’m obsessed with magic, witches and spells or any sort of supernatural stories so it was such a delight to discover this new BBC show “Jonathan Strange and Mr.Norrell”. Imagine watching a visually stunning story without extreme violence or sex? Yes, apparently it can be done on TV.
5) 40 ways to relax in five minutes or less. Whewwww.
