After a long day of shopping in big cities you often get the ergs to calm your body and soul. One popular and lovely thing to do this time of the year in Stockholm (if the sun is shining) is to visit parks with the ones you love and enjoy. You can have wonderful picnics, do some activities such as play sports, or just relax, walk around and take a moment from the high speed and energy level there is in the city. Humlegården is a park in the central of Stockholm, this means that you don’t necessary have to go by train or bus to get there.
Activities – Hornstull market
Hornstull market is an outdoor market that is stretching along the waterfront. Many locals have it as Sunday entertainment just because the market is only open every Sunday at 11:00-17:00, from April to October. Here you can bargain hunting among the stalls with vintage clothes, arts and gadgets. There are also several food trucks lined up for those who are hungry.
Stockholm has plenty of cozy and great coffee shops; one of my favorites is “Under Kastanjen”. This place is located in the wonderful, idyllic Old town (Gamla Stan) and it is also a bakery and a bistro bar where you can buy and eat amazing and fresh baked bread. Here you will not only experience the lovely location and its surrounding, but also great “typical Swedish” food such as meatballs and much more.
The idyllic, biodynamical and lovely garden in the heart of Stockholm, Rosendahls garden is a perfect place where you can bring your family and friends, order tasty and organic soups, sandwiches or salads, and if you just want a delicious pastry you can buy a piece and walk around in this magical garden that is full of beautiful plants and flowers. You can also buy yourself or someone else a flower in Rosendahl gardens own plantshop.
To directly translate the name of the restaurant; King Carls back pocket, has a menu with well prepared dishes from both Sweden and France. The restaurant has its own character with the feeling and true spirit of the turn of the century. The whole interior is breathtaking and it will take you back to another time. It hardly gets cozier than this!
For many,the beloved summer is right around the corner and with the popular season comes along a patch of beautiful, colorful and creative outfits. Dreamy laces, sheer fabrics in pastel tones and patterns that reminds of a beautiful canvas.
A lot of our jewelry are feminine and romantic with a twist. One timeless and effortless style such as the bohemian chic is quite popular during the warmer month of the year. The maxidresses, lace jumpsuits, sandals, hairscarves, it all creates a sense of calmness and brings creative back to live after a slummering winter sleep.
I´m very fond of the bohemian chic style beacause as long as your effort goes to putting together and outfit that makes you feel comfortable and if you have a slighty sense for mixing and matching patterns and fabrics, your´re all good.
But, in case you lack inspiration, we created a moodboard at Syster P Pinterest–Boho Chic, please check it out:)

New York City. One of the most interesting and vivid places in the world. I say place, because New York City is more than a city. It´s a culture that has influenced and inspired people all over the world.
For me as a fashion editor, New York Street Style is like the Holy Bible and no matter what, I always scroll through the internet for new street shoots and captures.
The main reason I got in touch with Syster P was actually for their passion and love for places, in particular New York. My curiosity needed to be nourished, and now when I´m one of the crew, I really understand why N.Y is inspiring them to design and create jewelry that not only looks good and matches almost everything, but also where every little detail and piece has a story behind. A value, something untold.
A big city like N.Y has endless amount of things to do, sights to visit and places to eat. I´ve gathered a few of my own favorite spots in the city for a weekend and I hope it will serve as a good starting point if you plan your trip to the city that never sleeps!

It is time to present another beautiful oceanblue stone that Syster P is using to create lovely collections. This stone is found in two collections; Adorable and Scarab. In this post I will tell you short about the meaning, history and properties about larimar.
Blue oceans and white clouds
In 1974 a man by the name of Miguel Méndez found the stone in the dominican republic, on a beach in the Barahoma province. The natives thought larimar derived from the ocean and passed this story to Mendez. ”Mar” in spanish means ocean, and Méndez beloved douughers name was Larissa.
So the ocean blue stone therefore was named Larimar.
Some people say, I would guess, women, that larimar nurtures the pregnant women´s body to relieve any depression and/or stress she might feel. There are also stories about larimar´s power to awaken the power of feminism and to sooth emotions.
Other traditions tell us the larimar teaches people to respect each, love and nurture one and each other. It said to block unhealthy emotional blocks and to release attachments we might suffer badly from.
Angelite is another beautiful stone found in Syster P jewelry collections ”Dripping” and ”Nugget”.
It is recognized by its ocean blue color and is sometimes called blue anhydrite.
The Dripping collection that comes in both gold and silver is a very classy and popular choice in our collection. The stone comes also as necklace, earring.
Nugget collection includes earrings, bracelets and necklaces that comes in gold and silver.
Traditions says that angelite brings calm and inner peace. In this post I will tell you more about the significant properties and meanings.
Calm and inner peace
If you feel stressed and overwhelmed, some people say that angelite creates a psychic protection and balancing etheric and physical energies. The stone is known to make you calm and give you inner peace. Angelite has the effect that can maintain and build a harmonic relationship this because it is said to dispel anger, fear and also encourages forgiveness.
The meaning of Angelite is that it is used like a healing crystal and I use it to avoid headaches, different infectious diseases and inflammations and also for the circulatory system. Some say that the stone can also be used to connect with spirit guides, the higher self and guardian angels.
Howlite is a reoccurring stone in Syster P jewelry collections.
One of the popular necklaces with the stone is Dripping Necklace and this beautiful jewelry comes with a variety of stones.
Traditions tell us that the stone has several meanings and people use it for different purposes
In this post I would like to tell you what the story is and the quality of the properties.
Howlite, a borate mineral, was discovered near Windsor, Nova Scotia in 1868 by Henry How, a canadian chemist, geologist, and mineralogist.
According to howlite traditions it has several properties (beside being a beautiful stone), for instance spiritually, it´s a stone for awareness.
Many say that the stone prepares you to receive wisdom from the higher self and the divine and it´s also used for meditation.
The stone is also used to calm upset states of mind and emotions. It is said to decrease stress, anxiety, selfishness and brings calm and relaxation to the user.
I use howlite to increase my creativity and to expand my self-expression which is important in my job.
In some part of the world, it is used as a healing crystal for pain, insomnia, leg cramps, anxiety disorders and stress-related illnesses.
Well, see you in a few days with a new crystal meaning!
