What a way to spend our first day in Barcelona! Our friends Erik and Lisa live here and their apartment has a wonderful rooftop pool. We spent the whole afternoon up there until the sun went down. Niklas, Minna, Johanna and Mårten are also on vacation here for Primavera Festival (yeah, that's what the hideous neon yellow bracelets are for). The festival starts today with bands like Beirut, Death Cab For Cutie and Grimes, so I think tomorrow's post will be a bit more varied, haha.

Last week Oona PR and Eastpak kindly invited 15 bloggers to take a lovely boat ride through the canals of Amsterdam. The weather was perfect, I was in great company and we got delicious drinks and fancy bites prepared by a chef.
The reason for this trip was that Dutch designer Antoine Peters was the first Dutch designer to design a backpack for Eastpak, so we stopped by his atelier to talk about the collaboration. The concept of his bag was really cool. His design is in black and white, and you get colored markers with the backpack so you can color it in yourself. That way you're kind of co-designing the bag. Speaking of co-designing, there's a competition running where you can submit your own design for an Eastpak backpack, and you can win loads of great prizes. Find it here.
Big thanks to Oona PR, Eastpak, Antoine Peters and all the lovely bloggers for a great afternoon!
Even though I don't want to think about the fact that at some point it will be fall/winter again, I went to The Dylan Hotel in Amsterdam to check out what we can expect fromNew Lookafter the summer. These are some things that caught my eye. Big thanks to New Look and Press Only for a lovely afternoon!

What's a party without Amanda?

Dress c/o Kling.
If anyone knows how to do a good summer dress, it's Kling. This one is no exception! I really love it. Yesterday we had a little walk in the park, the weather is finally worthy of summer! So happy to be able to run around in summer dresses until late in the evening.
In other news, Daniel started playing with one of the loveliest bands to ever come out of this country: The Black Atlantic. His first gigs were this week.
Listen: The Black Atlantic - An Archer, a Dancer
