GÅLÖ, SWEDEN

This weekend I was invited to Gålö, Sweden to visit Eric’s family and celebrate Midsummer with them! It was a weekend of minimal make up and sea soaked hair.

OFF THE RADAR

It’s June!

Wtf. I honestly cannot believe it. I can remember the day I arrived here in London four months ago. I leave next month people. Almost all of June I have accounted for.

But I also have knowledge of how quickly these moments will pass to become memories. Of which I am not prepared.
