Some answers for you

8B7B2792

These are the most common questions people ask me:

I don´t get it, what do you do?
I´m a photographer who enjoys blogging and home decor. I also run the printshop www.sammyrose.se with Jens. You can read about HOW I became a photographer here!

What kind of a cat is Saba?
She is a Laperm, an allergy friendly breed.

How do you find things on Ebay?
For real – people ask me this so often. I´ve written a few posts about my finds before. Read them here!

Just gather all the stuff from your brain that you like:
For me that list could look like this:
Grace Jones, cotton candy, Leslie Nielsen, the pink panther, Divine, the Shining girls, cookie monster, tv ,daydreaming etc
Give your words a try in the search engine. I´m sure you´ll find things there.

For a while I wanted everything associated with ALF. I searched for “ALF” in all categories, found lots of fun stuff like toys, backpacks, old cereal boxes and even behind the scenes photographs from the show. Speaking of that… there are so many nice photographs from moveis that you can buy on ebay. Just search for that actress or movie that you like.

But if you´re still feeling uninspired then go ahead and use my saved search words that are:
“hunted”, “holy”, “wooden doll”, “sigourney weaver”, “outrageous”, “behind the scenes”, “oddities”, “lot” (meaning a large amount of items)

Some of the obvious words like “vintage” and “retro” are being over used at the moment and will give you many search results.
But if you have the time scroll through. When I´m in a hurry I usually use “Old” instead of “vintage”.

 

Good luck!

Copenhagen shopping

8B7B2708

Copenhagen was great. I bought a new outfit that I will wear 24/7 from now on. (Above)
I went there with my mother in law and sister in law. We indulged in shopping and food and had a really nice time.

I´ve talked about this before: I´m a really bad shopper. I rearly see anything that is worth getting into a cramped dressingroom for. Or at least that´s what my brain tells me. (I have a pretty basic, no frills -kind of brain).

So the only way to successful shopping for me is to have a nice personal- shopper- kind of person with me. Isabelle is one of those. And apparently so is my mother in law and sister in law. As soon as I was about to give up on somehing in the dressingroom they stuck their head in and asked if they could bring me a diffrent size of it. Saying things like. “You could wear that with a plain T-shirt” and “do you have a belt at home that would work with those pants?. No? Okay try this”

I´m so please today with my shopping. However If I had more money here are a few pieces I would have bought:

cos-4

Pretty much all the coats over at COS. Especially these two.

dosfamily-vagabond

Shoes from Vagabond. My Mother in law bought these. So lovely.

New chest

dosfamily-chestGood morning.

I bought an old chest of drawers with a marble top yesterday. Not sure what to do with it though.
Should I paint it?

Today I´m going to Copenhagen for some leisure.
I´m planing to drink beer and buy sandals.
The tattoo on my foot is half way gone now, so I want some open shoes for the summer.

Speaking of my tattoo. This is how I looked last week when I had had my laser treatment at Mirijam´s studio. I´ve had 4 treatments so far and now it´s starting to show.  Read about my tattoo in this post.

Here are all the info you need if you have a bad tattoo you want to get rid off.

Jennifer Jansch´s book “I had a dream (but no idea)”

123

When I´m in doubt about stuff concerning my company I ask myself “What would Jennifer do?”

Jennifer Jansch, the Swedish entrepreneur behind Bag-all, is my guru. She´s the kind of person that gets shit done and always seems so sure of every move, I rally admire that. She and her family moved from Stockholm to New York with a dream of a new kind of life. For those of you who follow her already know this but let me just say: it worked out great.

This spring her book “I had a dream (but no idea)” came out. I´ve had the plessure of photographing for her on several occations, some of those pictures can be seen in the book.

Buy it here!

“The book “I had a dream (but no idea)” is a book about how Bag-all came about. It is written by the owner and founder of Bag-all, Jennifer Jansch. It starts with her dream of having her own business, but not having any idea of what that might be. It leads us through the challenging times, the fun times, the obstacle people, the successes, up until today. Bag-all has come a long way from Jennifers living room to having her bags sold in over 25 countries world wide, a flagship store in Nolita, New York and owning her own printing factory in Brooklyn.

Jennifer believes we are all capable of fulfilling our dreams and goals. In this book you find out how.

The book comes in a super cute cotton bag with grosgrain closing and a handle with the text: “Bag of dreams”.”

PS: Follow her on Instagram @bag_all
