i’ll rise

I skipped a night’s worth of sleep.

Yesterday was the longest day of the year (according to my sister) and we had the brilliant idea of receiving this day at the highest point of Skåne. At 2.30am five city girls (or at least non-country side girls) set off on an adventure to Söderåsens nationalpark, hoping to catch the sunrise and do some wandering about.

I feel slightly retarded due to the lack of sleep. I also got a fair share of visits by certain mosquitoes as well as slight heart attacks from the horror of encountering certain creatures I know, I’m a major wuss.

But it was worth it.

mein liebe hair

I’m slightly obsessed with my hair. Ever since I first chopped my long hair for a Halloween party with FAME as a theme in 2007 (I was supposed to do Rihanna from the Umbrella video) it’s just gotten shorter and shorter. I’ve had all sorts of short hairstyles by now. Page, bob, asymmetrical page, asymmetrical bob, undercut, hawkie, shroom and then some. I just have an obsession with going to the hairdresser and feeling like a bran new person every time I come out of there. I just haven’t shaved it all off yet. Which I won’t. I think.

Anyway. Yesterday I went to my personal maintenance hairdresser (my cousin Ivonne) to trim it up. I’m currently sporting 5mm short sides and my longest strand of hair (strategically placed at the top of my head) is possibly around 15cm long. I’m doing another version of the hawkie. I’m taking it one step further than the undercut.


Screw Cassie and Alice Dellal. Actually, no, I adore Dellal, she works this look. But I’m planning to channel Sonya Tayeh. Kind of.


So my hair has an aim, and will hopefully stick with it ’til it’s achieved. I’ll keep you posted with the developments.

How important is hair to you?
