Postcard from DR

Dominican Republic Paradiso Trip2

Dominican Republic Paradiso Trip3The bride in Mary Katrantzou escorted by her father down the aisle

A belated postcard from Casa de Campo in the Dominican Republic is in order, though it’s impossible to sum my amazing trip down to 9 photos. Four days of celebrating a friend’s dream wedding with a wonderful group of people seemed to be just what the doctor ordered.

The beautiful bride, Carolina Gonzalez-Bunster (founder of the Walkabout Foundation), was absolutely radiant in a fantastic creation by Mary Katrantzou, which was in fact Katrantzou’s first bridal creation ever.

As for myself I mostly sticked to the british designers this time around, and wore shorts by Charlie May and a top by Balenciaga, green dress by Amanda Wakeley, and a blue dress by Victoria Beckham.

Postcard from Laos

Laos Insta

Hello everyone, hope you’ve all been good!

Here’s a very delayed postcard from my wonderful trip to Laos where I did nothing else than chillin with my family and friends, enjoyed one of the best cuisine’s I know, touristed, and relaxed in spa’s. Laos has a soft spot in my heart and if you’re tempted to visit a beautiful country which still has that untouched and wild thing to it, then I can strongly recommend you to go, but hurry, things are changing rapidly over there these days.

I just got back to London this morning and I’m so(!) ready to put summer holidays and bikinis behind and roll up those sleeves, work and fashion month here we come!!!

Postcard from Sardinia

Northern Light-Postcard from Sardinia

Good morning world, I hope you’re doing perfectly well in the heat of July!
Sorry for the absence, but I’m still soaking up sunny “holy” days in Sardinia and have been quite cut-off the digital world the past few days (sloooow internet speed….). Anyway, until I get other divisors than my iPhone working down here, (watched pots never boils!), you can always find me on Instagram, @hedvigso is still my name. Have a wonderful Monday!!!!
Puss puss!

Miami

My few days in Miami went so quickly so I didn’t have any time posting from there but I had a lovely time indeed. On the first day we were surprised with heavy rain so we decided to explore the shopping facilities in town and ended up at Bal Harbour Shops, a shopping mall with excellent shopping and small restaurants. I usually don’t fancy malls but this one was in fact a beautiful one, highly recommended.
The last day we enjoyed the rays by our pool at Delano on South Beach, lunching with friends and boom, the fairy tale was over this time around, but it was a damn good one.

Now, time to catch up on real life, but first a highly missed noodle soup in London’s China town!

Smile or Die

Ok, I just had my last dip into the sea and this island adventure is over this time around. No more exotic beaches for a while as sivilisation is knocking on my door but there’s still a few more days left of my trip, next stop, Miami, see you there!

Turquoise

It took  me some time before I got it, the name of the beautiful place I’ve been soaking up at during the last few weeks, Turks and Caicos, off course a reference to the clear turquoise water.

Conch

Haven’t written about food here for a while and since I’m almost starting to turn into a Robinson Crusoe on my dream island we’ve also hunted down our own food. On a snorkeling trip the other day we caught conchs (collected is perhaps a better word) and prepared a fresh salad of them at the beach, served with local beer, delicious!

Happy

Starting to get used to this island life and find myself waking up early morning feeling rested, must be the combo of warm, sunshine, relaxation and perhaps more importantly, early nights. Cannot recall last time I even considered calling it a day before midnight, well, here I do and it’s wonderful, perhaps a good routine to bring a long home…….

Turks and Caicos

I’m in paradise, Turks and Caicos is just what the doctor ordered, white sandy beaches, clear blue water and sunshine, and staying at a gorgeous resort does’t hurt much either. Today I’ve done absolutely nothing except reading chic lit, chilling in the sun and sipping chardonnay.  Haven’t taken many photos so far but from now on I’ll bring the camera along.

Now, getting ready for barbeque!!!!

I wore new bikini from H&M and sunnies Celine.

Finally

Thank you so much for your tips and mails to my cry for help the other day. In 3 days I’ll be leaving for this island in Caribbean, Turks and Caicos, looks just perfect, longing to dip my toes in that clear blue water, sleep, read and recharge! Until then there are many things that need to be sorted and right now I’m working from the fire escape on my sunny roof.
