Week-end has been good. Very relaxing. My place is finally coming together and I can’t even explain to you guys what a seriously sick feeling it is to see it become what I always envisioned it to be. You see, throughout my whole childhood I’d look up to this emancipation moment with fear yet an extreme excitement. I’d even make myself fall asleep at night by imagining and dreaming of what it would eventually look like and what kind of furniture I’d have in it. Well, even though my taste has evolved ever since (and honestly still continues to evolve!) I do have to admit that it’s starting to look really good, and I do feel at home.
There’s no such feeling as coming back to your own place, for which you’ve hunted down each piece of furniture, where each book, each picture frame has a story and a personal meaning to you. I was sitting on my couch the other day, it was late at night, I couldn’t sleep… and I was just staring around, thinking about how crazy my life turned out to be. I mean, in my wildest dreams would I have never envisioned myself moving from my small town in Switzerland (where it takes two buses and a train to go to Geneva) to L.A, getting my own place in Beverly Hills to pursue my lifetime dream. Who would have thought…
And little did I know, it actually feels good to be at home by myself for now. I’ve been travelling so much, always surrounded by so many people, that coming back home and finding peace for myself is one of the most magical and relaxing feelings ever. It’s amazing. I feel so independent. It’s my place and my make my own rules (meaning dance parties in your underwear at 2am after you applied bronzer and you don’t want to stain your bed sheets… so you shake it to make it dry quicker, my favorite activity in the world). Of course, I do miss Fiona and living with her, but growing up as an only child, I have to say, I always thought I’d live by myself (like a Carrie Bradshaw in her own little appartement, coming back home after long days, and pulling out her computer to share the story of her life…)
My neighborhood is so nice. I wake up and fall asleep with a view of palm trees outside my window. They actually became my pals (my palms hehe). Each one of them has a name, which varies from Fred to Louis. On another note, the weather has been so insane here in LA and dressing up accordingly has never been more fun. My taste in clothes had been very minimalistic and boyish lately. I love everything very simple, such as a white buttoned up shirt with leather bottoms, jeans, or a cool pair of trousers. Now, I have my fun with accessories and I have to say I’ve been absolutely obsessing over this Coccinelle bag. I remember shopping in town a few days ago and by just seeing their ad, I had to get my hands on this beauty of a bag ASAP. Firstly, I love this military khaki color. It’s such a beautiful shade of green, and the golden buckle adds a luxurious, elegant touch to it. Also, not to mention, you can literally fit your whole life in it. You’ll see it become your it piece of the season! Definitely worth the investment.

Hello here is Mithos from Switzerland, we like your style and pictures!!
visit our new store MITHOS !https://www.mithos.com/
lot of clothes for men and women in store or online.
I think that's the perfect way to describe living on your own: feeling like Carrie Bradshaw, where you can come home and just be in your little bubble to write or in your case, create and of course, shop and have your money where you can see it, haha! I LOVED that couch you bought, it's so beautiful! Hope you'll give us a tour of your place as you decorate, Kristina! I'm sure your interior style is just as great as your fashion sense! xohttp://huongctvo.com
I saw your couch on either snapchat or instagram and it looks amazing!
I love this outfit! I saw this bag last week and felt in love. May be I will buy it next days. :)

What a lovely outfit, perfect for summer!
I just got a pair of leather trousers and I cow;don't be more happier! They were from Goodwill and are Anne Taylors!!!!
J'adore ta tenue, avec le short en cuir pour la touche de rock <3 très élégante :)
Kristina you are so inspiring! I mean it for real, you know I'm also from Switzerland the little country and of course I'm dreaming of a life like yours. Sometimes I think 'forget it the chance is so little'. But then I look at you and your strong belief in yourself and I just think yes the chance is not big but big enough to work for it and keep going forwards. I've just started my blog and I love it! Even though not that many people may read my posts but even if there's one like it motivates me.http://carmitive.com
So I really wanna say thank you for inspiring me and showing me that everything is possible. I hope you'll read this :)
Greetings and love from beautiful Switzerland. XO Carmen
Congrats on your new place, Kristina :)

Great bag! I saw the brands shop on Kings Road in London a while ago and can't believe how great this bag is! It must feel great to be independent. I left home at 20 and moved to London where I didn't know anyone. It felt difficult sometimes but freedom is worth it.http://www.champagnegirlsabouttown.co.uk
You look stunning Kristina! It must be incredible to actually live in Los Angeles, it's like a dream! Enjoy your new home xxxhttp://waitwhat-ab.blogspot.com.es/2015/08/summer-outfits-inspiration.html
WOW! That's so gorgeous. I love the shorts and the location is perfect. I think I need that bag :)

Absolutely love your outfithttp://fashionbackyard.blogspot.it
I really loved this post, it reminded me of your first articles when you used to write about simple things and pieces that you found out and about when you were in highschool.http://andreadaga.blogspot.com
Of course I love your collaborations and luxurious photoshoots all over the world, it is seriously insane and I am forever grateful that you share those experiences with us, but I found something very nostalgic about this post...
Anyways, you look stunning as always and tan as never before!
Loads of love from a Spanish follower <3
Great outfit! simple and chic, so relatable. I have 2 helpful tips to help you avoid excessive 2am dance parties (as awesome as they are..!) 1. use a hairdryer to make it dry! you can use it on the cool setting if you prefer & 2. beige/ brown sheets - not as chic as white; but well its a compromise!!
Gorgeous as usual!

Comme ça fait plaisir de savoir que ça y est, petit à petit tu commences à bien t'installer et te sentir enfin chez TOI. Pas chez tes parents, pas dans une chambre d'hôtel, pas dans un Airbnb mais bien dans ton propre petit cocon ! Je connais tout à fait ce sentiment, de rentrer le soir et de se dire qu'on peut faire ce que l'on veut, qu'il n'y a pas de restrictions, pas de contraintes. Je ne voyage pas autant que toi, et pourtant, qu'est ce que j'aime être dans ma maison, me retrouver seule, tranquille chez moi. Je pense que même si chacun d'entre nous est fait pour vivre entouré, la solitude est bénéfique. Elle nous permet de se retrouver, se recentrer sur nous et de prendre du temps pour soi tout simplement.http://thejourneydiet.blogspot.fr/
D'après ce que tu nous laisse voir, ça a l'air vraiment joli, je dirais dans des tons neutres, blanc, noir, gris, minimaliste. Tout ce que j'aime !! Bonne nouvelle vie ma poupée, ça c'est encore une nouvelle expérience dans ta vie à 100 à l'heure !!
nice outfit !!http://intelligently-fashionable.blogspot.comhttp://intelligently-fashionable.blogspot.com
Love this simple tomboy look! The bag is gorgeous!http://trendenciesblog.com
Dear Kristina, this post is very inspirational. You again managed to show that their is no need to have one basic fashion style in life. Experimentation in fashion is the most important thing. This way you can express the way you feel and think at a particular moment. I also love the fact that interior design is your hobby. Keep going! Can't wait for the next post:)http://www.chochmes.com
I have recently also opened my own webpage where one can wander from the main path for a second and find ones daily inspiration. I would be very honored if you visit my blog www.chochmes.com.
Cool pictures :) With Cool girls.

It sounds great that you finally get some time to enjoy your home which I believe is very beautiful! Thanks for sharing your thoughts and I think a minimalist outfit is always appreciated in warm weather! Simple but chic monochrome look and the bag is gorgeous! Especially love the elegant and unique gold buckle design!
You always look incredibly stylish, just like you're in this masculine and minimalistic outfit too!
I like your bag very much. :)
A perfect easy look for summer! Glad your place is coming together nicely. It must feel so wonderful. I can't wait for my place to totally feel like mine.
Definitely one goal I wanna achieve in life. Creating original and formative contents in my little space which I can call my own. :)
There definitely is something great about having some time to yourself! I hope you enjoy your down time. x
Love the outfit & I can't wait til I have a place of my own :)http://www.looksbymc.com

Beautiful look, I love those leather shorts! Living on your own is the best! I live with my boyfriend but we're on the same page about house rules :)http://www.looking-glass.ca
Hi Kristina, I love your style and you have definitely inspired me to share my own fashion tastes. It sound's so exciting to have finally moved into your own place. Please can you include a blog about your house, it would be nice to see how you decorated all the different rooms. x
I too dream of the day I'll have a place all to myself and you give me the inspiration to work hard in order to achieve that dream :)
And btw, your hair looks amazing.
When I read your posts I can see your beautiful soul and your creative mind full of interesting thoughts. You have a poetic heart, which has so much to say and give to the world. These are the reasons why I love you so much. You are unique and I say it to myself everytime I read your posts. World needs people like you, because you are beautiful inside and out. It's the first time I write a comment below the post but I really wanted to tell you these words. Wish you all the best and hope you will always be the same :)
Such a cute outfit! I love the top!!

I've missed your "story posts"! So glad for you. Your new home seems to be what you always wanted :)http://www.anotherside-of-me.com
Maybe you will post a home tour when it's ready :)
Great pictures, I like your expression - it totally fits the outfit. I would love a room tour (doesn't have to be a video) - I bet you also have an elegant taste in furniture as in clothing. I saw some pictures of your room in Switzerland and loved it. I like the black and white theme with some pop of colour. In my head I can totally envision my flat but in reality I would need tons of bucks to really style it the way I want. Besides I do live with my man and he might have some opinions as well ;)http://www.electrofairy.de
you are such an amazing perfson. Beautiful inside and out! Love your outfit btw <3
such a cool take on a classic combination! I am actually wearing a very similar look today! And I love that bag!http://nomoreboringclothes.blogspot.com/

Oui effectivement c'est dingue ce que ta vie est devenue... mais tu as travaillé si dur pour ça... d'un autre côté je ne sais pas comment tu fais pour aller d'un évènement à l'autre, passer autant d'énergie à courir d'un lieu à l'autre, d'un pays à l'autre, rencontrer autant de personnes en si peu de temps, des gens seulement de passage sur ta route la plupart du temps, sourire à tous et repartir...pfiou... il faut le vouloir j'imagine... (disons que je préfère prendre le temps, de visiter, de voyager, de créer des liens qui restent...) alors oui c'est bien et sain que tu ai enfin ton home sweet home... meme si tu voyages encore beaucoup par la suite, tu auras ton cocon, à ton image, aménagé par tes soins, où tu pourras te ressourcer!!
Je serais curieuse de voir quelques photos de chez toi, dans un post genre lifestyle, mais peut être que tu veux garder cette partie de ta vie privée, oh et au fait, James travaille encore avec la team??!
That really is the dream, to have your own little place to do with what you wish, like a little sanctuary to escape to every day for peace and quiet. I literally can't wait to have a place of my own one day! I used to, like you when I was little when I couldn't sleep lay in bed designing my dream house, it's just so much fun to do! Also I just love you minimalist style it's so lovely and chic!http://www.elzbthchlmrspps.blogspot.co.uk
I can't see the price of the bag, is it available for sale or still in preview? love the bag!https://ohhisunshine.wordpress.com
What a lovely Bag
