Essentials Pt. 1

I wanted to start a series of blogposts about the essentials I use and share on Instagram, so here we go!

It has been a few days and I still need to find a way to get this ‘blogger’ thing in my routine, but at least we got a new blogpost today ;).

A few days ago I posted a picture on Instagram of this shelving unit with some essentials I use on a daily basis. I thought it would be nice to bring more depth to this post and let you know more about these essentials. Let us start with the shelving unit, it’s the well known KALLAX by Ikea. It’s a very versatile shelving system with a great minimal look for a price you can’t say no to in my opinion.

The next thing I want to take a closer look at is ‘AnOther 13’ by Le Labo. I got this scent for some weeks now and it has grown on me every since I got it. You’ve maybe recognised it by the amount of times it is featured on my Instagram, but I believe this fragrance deserves it. ‘AnOther 13′ was created in collaboration with AnOther Magazine back in 2010 and at first only available at Colette, but after she closed her doors in 2017 Le Labo adopted the scent into their own collection. It’s composed of ambroxan, a synthetic animal musk which lasts very, very long, together with 12 (hence the ’13’ in the name). Other ingredients such as jasmine, moss and ambrette seeds makes it a nice lighter but still well articulated scent that almost magicly comes alive every now and than. It is hard to describe but it is really nice, trust me :).

The next piece I want to talk about is the Acne Studios Canada scarf in grey melange. It is my most used scarf, period. The wool feels nice but for me the color is just what 9 of the 10 times does it for me. I’ve noticed the new season scarfs from Acne have a different label than mine as mine is last seasons. I have some cashmere blend scarfs that feel softer to the skin, like that one from Asket (such great value) but this one somehow got the most wear. It’s made in Italy and definitely a wardrobe staple for me.

Some other essentials are the MW50+ headphones by Master and Dynamic, which has interchangeable on and over-ear ear pads. That’s quiet a solution because I tend to need both for different occasions. Of course my grained leather Common Projects are in the picture as they are the most comfortable sneakers I own. I find the grained leather softer than the leather used on the original achilles low.
Further products are; Oakmoss scented handsoap by Arket, Bibliotheque candle from Byredo and Shoe and Clothing mist from Pure Effect Sweden. Below I’ve put some links where you can take a look at the products for yourself.

 

Enjoy your week guys!
