Sweet Smart Dreams

I knew it - frequent naps actually makes you smarter. According to researchers at University of California Berkeley they're the brain's way of making room for new information. The study, presented a American Association of the Advancement of Science Conference this weekend, can be interpreted as follows according to USA Today: a good night's sleep + a solid midday siesta = increased intelligence.
Great news for me and fellow parents who tend to be very efficient when our small darlings sleep. Better to lie down next to them. Sweet dreams.

Serenity and Beauty

Beauty and esthetics is an important part of our everyday life, not only something that lies on the surface. The objects we surround ourselves with, the visual impressions we are fed with, affect our wellbeing. In that context I´m extra superhappy about my new Serenity Prayer-artwork, made by talented Therese Sennerholt. I´ve placed it in my bedroom, so I can rest my eyes on it when I´m about to fall asleep or when I greet the day.

A Single Man

All my life I´ve been facinated by people who dare to jump, change direction in life, follow their heart. Therefore I´m impessed by and curious about fashion icon Tom Fords directorial debut A single man. I´m off to see it next Monday, thanks to Moderådet (The fashion council) in Stockholm. It´s been told in articles that large parts of Hollywood laughed when Ford began to work on the film, but now Colin Firth is nominated for an Oscar. Check out the interview below with Tom Ford.
