Yesterday’s brunch in Stockholm

Travel,7 March 2018

Just came back from yoga that I forced myself to go to today. My head is aching and I’m completely exhausted, but yoga was exactly what my mind needed-refocus and calmness.

Yesterday morning I walked into the airport around 8 am. Me and my colleagues Hanna, Linda and Metti were invited to Stockholm by Soft Goat cashmere for a California themed brunch. It was a relaxed, intimate and casual event. The perfect little mini getaway! Also, the brunch by Stockholm Brunch Club was to die for. Highly recommend visiting if you’re ever in Stockholm.

I’m a cashmere lover and live in my cashmere knits around the year, therefore I for sure didn’t leave empty handed. I got myself a couple new basic knits I know I’ll wear until they fall apart, literally. Talk about good cost per use! Cashmere is a savior for my sensitive skin. It breathes and keeps me warm and is completely non-itchy. Softs Goat’s Spring collection was filled with different textures and beautiful colors. I especially love the chunkier ones.

Our trip went by fast, but on our way home there were some technical issues with the aircraft. So, we flew for an hour, but landed back in Stockholm again. I wasn’t home until midnight, but at least I did my best today to get back on track again. Healthy breakfast, kiddo’s and some mindfulness does wonders ;).

snapshot diary with Huawei

Travel,Work,16 February 2018

In collaboration with Huawei// Kaupallisessa yhteistyössä Huawein kanssa

In my work as an Influencer or whatever you choose to call it the tools I work with play an important role. I need and want to stay connected, available and always ready to catch the moment in case that’s something I feel you’d be interested in. I want to include my followers in my world of inspiration. Inspiration can be found everywhere at any time.

I’m so happy to finally kick start this collaboration with Huawei. I tried one of Huawei’s phones for the first time last Spring, where after I was intrigued by the quality of the phone, especially the camera and reached out to Huawei. Now I’m here, launching a collaboration with Huawei Mate 10 Pro. The excitement is real!

I decided to learn this phone and try it for some time to really get a hang of it. I’ve been photographing stills and different arrangements, people, videos, outfit pictures, food and everything in between. That’s when I got the idea to make this one day in Stockholm diary through the lens of Huawei. During this short stay I shot more than 15 outfit pictures, worked on collabs, went to meetings, attended an event and took pictures of the in-between moments. Those random snaps are the ones I wanted to collect here for you because I usually only share those well-planned moments.

Usually casual snap shots are much more interesting and relatable. When I pull out my phone for a picture the vibe is much more relaxed and casual than when I work with my system camera. The pressure is off and that’s what I wanted to achieve. Some of you might even remember that was one of my promises for myself for this year. More pictures of relaxed situations. This phone helps me achieve that.

Let me introduce you to Huawei 10 Mate Pro. This phone is equipped with a two-way camera by Leica! The color camera lens has 12 megapixels and the black and white-  20 megapixels. What amazes me the most is the possibility to shoot in pro mode, putting the camera in RAW, zoom digitally, use the OIS stabilizer and f/1,6 aperture. It also contains the Bokeh function which gives a blurry effect. Shooting in RAW mode is important especially if you like to edit your pictures. I always adjust the light, contrast and colors or filters in either Lightroom, VSCO or phone. You can edit your pictures using Huawei’s editing tools. I like to put on the enhanced colors for deeper color reception, but it offers you filters, tools to adjust lightning and colors and of course beauty filters for that perfect selfie :D. You can also film with a filter present. The camera contains the most important features I constantly use in my system camera which offers me great quality with much less effort. The phone is also dust and water resistant.

Another mentionable thing is the battery. Seriously, it never dies. During my two days in Stockholm it didn’t die once and I constantly used it! Literally an energy savior.

As this collaboration will continue, I’ll show you and compare the quality of the camera with my systems camera taking outfit pictures. Until next time!

Tänä syksynä Huawei julkisti uuden puhelimen Huawei 10 Mate Pro -puhelimen. Olen harjoitellut puhelimen käyttöä pitkin talvea ja ajattelin, että kuvapäiväkirja reissustani olisi hyvä tapa esitellä puhelimen kameran ominaisuuksia ja laatua. Kun kuvaan puhelimella fiilis ympärilläni pysyy paljon rennompana ja luonnollisena verrattuna siihen, kun kuvaan järjestelmäkameralla. Siksi halusin kuvata teille kuvia rennoista tilanteista joista en yleensä en rakenna postauksiani.

Huawein kaksoiskamera on Leican, jonsa värilinssissä on 12 megeapixeliä ja mustavalkoisessa 20mpixeliä. Kuvastessani RAW -tilassa varmistan, että kuvani sisältävät mahdollisimman paljon informaatiota. RAW -kuvia on helpompi muokata, jos niihin haluaa tuoda lisää valoa tai säädellä väriloistoa, kontrastia tai lisätä filtterin. Tämän kameran pro tila siis mahdollistaa sen, että kuvia voi kuvata RAW -tilassa aivan niin kuin järjestelmäkamerassa.

Huawein kameran asetuksista löytyy myös Bokeh -asetus, jonka avulla saa blurrattua taustan tai muutettua kuvan tarkennuspistettä. Tämän voi tehdä myös jälkeenpäin! Kamerassa on myös (OIS) kuvanvakain sekä f/1,6-aukko.

Kameran akku on myös todella hyvä ja se virtaa riittää ikuisuuden! Puhelin oli käytössäni koko matkan ajan enkä joutunut lataamaan sitä kertaakaan vaikka kuvasin videoita ja kuvia taukoamatta.

Yhteistyö Huawein kanssa jatkuu ja ensi kerralla vertailen puhelimen kameraa vs järjestelmäkameraani sekä niiden eroavaisuuksia.
