Nostalgic objects

We took a few inspiring and beautiful pictures at the home of Maria, one of the two designers at As We Grow, where she lives with her husband, four children, a dog and a cat, and asked her to describe them with her own words.  

"I am so very happy with my new car. Just love the color. Thanks Vaka for making it for me : )"
 
"Got this artwork from the official "street artist of Reykjavík". Still remember the feeling when walking with my mom, just a little girl, windowshopping in the city center".
 

"Do recommend this "multible-monkey-machine" for your kids, educational and great fun!". 


"My mom just gave me her old dolls. I am so happy that they are finally mine, even though I am in my forties!"

The Blue Lagoon

We had to fill up on the stock at the Blue Lagoon and since we had already driven all the way out there we decided to go in. It was such a beautiful day and it felt wonderful, especially since we got to try the new Algae Mask . Our skin looked so nice we didn´t dare put any makeup on afterwards.

Dealing with pilling

When you have a new piece of quality knitwear you undoubtably have to deal with some pilling, especially in places where there is friction.  Generally alpaca is known for pilling less than both sheep´s wool and cashmere. Here is how I deal with it.

I bought a sweater-stone at my local yarn shop and just brush it over the garment in the same direction as the stitches. It is best if you hold the garment a little stretched while doing this.

After seven minutes my son´s sweater looked like this. All done.

Mýrin by the Harbour

Mýrin opened a new store at Geirsgata 9, just by the harbour.  Of course we used the opportunity and threw a party. We got lucky because Steinunn Vala, at Hring eftir hring, made beautiful children´s necklaces to coordinate with the As We Grow clothes.

The new store is especially nice and many things caught my eye. This is the place to go on a splurge, I left there with a mint green, graphic candleholder from Finnsdottir. It´s my christmas gift to me.

After your shopping trip I recommend sitting down at in-house restaurant Mar, designed by cool couple Karítas and Hafsteinn at Haf.

Are we overdressing?

I was reading a magazine the other day and they recommended a book by Elizabeth L Cline called Overdressed The Shockingly High Cost of Cheap Fashion.  It instantly hit a note with me and now I am waiting for it to arrive in the mail.

In the meantime I have been reading some of Elizabeth´s articles and I found these two quite intriguing: What´s Behind Cheap Chic Fabrics? and The History of a Cheap Dress. I am certainly no saint when it comes to cheap fashion but  I believe it is better to be informed when choosing to buy something. Being aware is the first step.
