Speaking in Swedish

Hello Friday!

I've got a little bonus video for you today, Me speaking in Swedish! As you may have gathered, I live in Stockholm and I speak Swedish on a regular basis. Although I grew up with Swedish my accent isn't completely perfect. Personally I think I sound pretty goofy, but I get by as a local most of the time. hehe. Swedish is a rather difficult language, but I find it really fun to speak. 

Hope you enjoy this silly short video (don't forget to turn on the subtitles!) and have a great weekend!

Blogger What's in my Bag: Flora of The Accidental Londoner

Hello Wednesday!

Can you see something very different about today's Blogger What's in my Bag featuring Flora of The Accidental Londoner? Besides there not being a lick of pink anywhere to be seen there are also no beauty products featured... not even a lip balm. Fun change don't you think?! Lipsticks and jewels are traded for coffee shop reward cards, Penguin Classics and lots of note taking. All of the essentials for playing tourist in your own city.

If you are planning a trip to London, or you're just an Anglophile you definitely must give Flora's blog a visit. I've been to London 3 times. The first time I visited I didn't quite like the city, but on return visits it's grown on me more and more. Can't wait to visit for a fourth time!

Besides Flora I've had the pleasure of featuring so many other inspiring and stylish ladies. To see my entire series you can view my Blogger What's in my Bag Pinterest board here...

And if you're interested in having one commissioned for yourself or a friend you can purchase this Custom What's in my Bag illustration in my Etsy shop here...

Current EmmaKisstina Products

Hello Monday!

I've got another video to show off today! This time I thought it would be fun to film the current EmmaKisstina products I have in shop so you can hear my thoughts and get a little closer look at sizing that may not come across as easily in photos. This is hopefully the first video in a series because I plan on adding lots of new products in the next coming months. At the end of the film I also chat about projects I'm working on producing and ask for your opinions. I'd love to hear what you'd like to see from EmmaKisstina in the future!

Talking to no one but my phone strapped to a lamp is still quite awkward and I noticed afterward that I talk sooo slow in this one but I'm still of course learning. Self promotion is not my strong suit either, I always feel strange talking about my work, even in my room along. At least I gave it a go! (Promise I'll get better at this too)

Thanks for watching! You can subscribe to my YouTube channel here if you'd like :)

I love love love working on these illustrations! They are always so much fun. I love getting the list of items I get to draw and plan out how to put everything together, plus I really get to know the girl I'm illustrating for (extra funness!).
