Emma’s guide to summer in Stockholm


Sthlm brunch Club
 lis located by a beautiful park in Vasastan and serves breakfast all day. They don’t take any reservations so be prepared to come early to get a table outdoors. @sthlmbrunchclub_

Köpmantorget in Old Town is a new favourite of mine. It’s a quaint little square a bit off the most touristy streets where the restaurants’ outdoor settings unfold along the cobbled streets. My favourite spots are Grill RubyÖsterlånggatan 17 and Bistro Pastis.


Special place.
Rosendal’s Garden
 is an oasis located at Djurgården in Stockholm. Stroll among the flowers, apple trees and plantations, buy some home-made jam in the Garden shop and enjoy a cup of coffee and a pastry at the café. Rosendalsvägen 38, Djurgården.

Juice bar.
Juiceverket at Odenplan is one of my regular spots. I always order the Asklepios Health Sumo with extra ginger that is said to be good for your health. Norrtullsgatan 21, Vasastan.


CA & Company
 is a new beauty salon at Södermalm run by my amazing friend Annelie Englund. Book an appointment for a relaxing massage, a manicure or a tailor made facial with Emma S. products! Folkungagatan 89, Södermalm.

If you want to get as much shopping done in as little time as possible you should head to Biblioteksstan. The stores are lined up closely and you’ll find a great mix of high-end and budget, Swedish and international brands. My favourite stops are By Marlene Birger, & Other Stories and Filippa K.

I love photo art and Fotografiska always has fantastic shows. This summer I’m going to see “The picture of Greta Garbo” and Bryan Adam’s exhibition “Exposed”. The Modern Museum also has an amazing exhibition signed  Yayoi Kusama right now, which is as amusing for grown-ups as for children. Stadsgårdshamnen 22, Södermalm and Skeppsholmen.

Emma has developed Barrow Street together with the perfumer Shyamala Maisondieu. 


Barrow Street is an elegant and bohemian fragrance with top notes of unique pink Pepper spiced up with Mandarin and Bergamot. Green leafy notes and Musk enveloped by warm and sophisticated scents of Vetiver (aromatic roots). The fragrance has been inspired by the energy, creativity and the people in Greenwich Village during the early 90’s.

Office wear for spring


The spring in Stockholm has been cold this far but we are still longing to leave our black winter uniforms behind and upgrade to a more colourful look. Right now we love the combination of a crisp, blue shirt, pink lips and rosy cheeks.

Spring in Paris

I was in Paris a few weeks ago for a fun upcoming project. My friend Malin Baryard was also there by chance for a competition at Grand Palais hosted by Hermés, what a fantastic race! Here are some snapshots from the trip:

Always on my night stand!

  1. Hand cream. The best trick to remember to use hand cream is to keep it nearby the bed. A thick layer of cream and some extra on the cuticles will take good care of your hands during the night.
  2. Cotton gloves. Cover your well-moisturised hands with cotton gloves during the night. This will lock in the moisture and work as a caring treatment throughout the night. You can find simple cotton gloves at the pharmacy.
  3. A great book. I try to read a couple of pages every night, that is if I don’t fall asleep during the first page… Right now I’m reading “Sthlm Delete” by Jens Lapidus.
  4. Lip balm. During the winter I always apply a thick layer of lip balm right before bed. Right now I use one from Decubal. Perfect for chapped lips!
  5. A big glass of water. Always.

Last week was the grand opening of Mall of Scandinavia, which is now the largest mall in the Nordic region. We were there this weekend and met some of our fantastic costumers, always a pleasure meeting you! The mall is located just outside of Stockholm and you can find us at Kronans Apotek Care & Beauty, Kicks and Åhléns.

My desk heroes


Long days at the office and running between meetings can make the most glamorous look loose it’s shine. Make some space for these desk heroes and you always have a touch-up close by.

  1. A refreshing and moisturising facial mist you can use over your makeup (moisturising facial mist, 15€/150ml)
  2. A hand cream that is easily absorbed into the skin and keeps your hands soft (hand cream SPF15, 15€/60ml)
  3.  A lip balm that also doubles up as a cuticle moisturiser (Rosebud lip balm)
  4. A great hair brush that does not tear on your hair.  (hair brush from Mason Pearson)
  5. A great nail file is a real life saver when your manicure just does not hold up (O.P.I glass nail file)
  6. I always have my signature scent close by (Rue de Varenne EDT, 55€/50ml)
