Odd Molly - LA guide





To celebrate the launch of our new denim line, we teamed up with some of the most inspiring girls out there, who all have a special liking for the city of angels. Meet Eddie, an LA based blogger, model and health entrepreneur. The amazingly talented singer songwriter Awa. And Elsa, one of Sweden´s most appreciated life style bloggers, who dreams of becoming a full time artist. Together with lead singer Jennifer from the rock band “Bloke & Bird”, they reveal their favourite sweet spots in LA, for you to enjoy. Dressed in denim, they went up into Hollywood Hills, out to Venice Beach and everywhere in between. LA was all about amazing food, great music and making the best out of every day, in a city full of opportunities!

Juice served here


Wake up, sun is shining and the juice is freshly pressed. This juice society is what happened over breakfast one day, when Alex met Greg, and fashion met health, and they hit it off, spectacularly.


“I believe a healthy life is to try and aim for feeling good and nourishing your body the best way you can – eat organic and clean, exercise regularly, laugh and have a positive mind set.” – Eddie Mitsou Pettersson

Tribute to @krickelin





Kristin Lagerqvist is a freelance photographer located in Varberg, Sweden, and the person behind the lovely blog and Instagram account @krickelin. Kristin did a takeover of our Instagram account for a few days and shares some inspirational images from her week. Please see the photos and read more about Kristin below. For more inspiration, have a look at her blog: http://www.lovelylife.se/krickelin/



How did you find your own interior style?

It came along the way and it changes all the time. I have always been creative. And I don’t want to put a fortune into interior pieces or have the exact same home as anyone else. I’ve been quite impulsive in my home for several years. Now I try to be more thoughtful about what I consume, thinking of the environment. Vintage is great.



What makes your heart bounce at flea markets?

Right now I’m longing to find a big oil painting. I know the theme when it hits me.



Tell us about your most precious item in your house?

I don’t really have one. The people that live here are the most precious to me. But if I have to say something, it has to be my collection of geraniums or the chairs around the dining table.



What is the most fun about sharing your experiences on your blog and Instagram?

The communities are awesome. I found so many friends and so much cooperation here. Everyone is so friendly and I find tons of inspiration on blogs and instagram each and every day.



What can we expect from your Odd Molly Instagram take over the next couple of days?

Oh, I try to show you a bit of my everyday life, living on the west coast of Sweden this time of year. It’s cold, beautiful and calming. Hang around; I hope you will find some inspiration to fill up your day!



Tribute to @weare365





Thilda & Mira, the lovely sisters behind the colorful and inspiring travel blog ”Weare365” are taking over our Instagram for three days. Get a glimpse of their everyday adventure at @oddmolly starting today! And don´t forget to check out their blog – www.weare365.com



What has been the most amazing place to visit during your travels around the world and why?

Oh, we have been visiting so many amazing places. We love to go on adventures in the nature and to let the road and the destiny decide where to go. We usually don’t plan our traveling so much. When you’re open to things happening along the way, the most amazing things usually happens. But if we had to choose just one of our adventures, it must be our trip to Norway. The mountains are so breathtaking even though we were about to die when hiking to the cabin on the mountain top were we were suppose to sleep, to make a long story short.



Tell us about your travel essentials, what can´t you live without?

Great headphones, books and the most important thing: a camera. An amazing book we just read is Shantaram. Tips tips tips.



Where are you going next?

We are heading to Tulum in Mexico with one of our best friends Maxinne in January. The thought of turquoise water is almost unreal when you’re looking outside the window right now.



What is the most fun about sharing your experiences on your blog and Instagram?

The response and comments. It is amazing to read. We love to share what we see and to take part of other peoples adventures.



What can we expect from your Odd Molly Instagram take over the next couple of days?

A glimpse of our - a little bit messy - everyday life

ROADTRIP TO GAGNEF




Summer is magic when camping under dalecarlian skies with these truly inspiring girls. All with their own unique personality and eclectic style, following their own passion and sharing the love for adventures. Together we went on a roadtrip to Gagnef in Sweden where we had a weekend of listening to music, hanging out in the sun and most importantly, danced all night long.


Arriving at Gagnef

Our home for the next few days.



Breakfast á la Eddie

Talented Eddie making us metabolic boosting cinnamon kale smoothies.



Gagnef style



Barbecue

Food tastes better when cooked and eaten outdoors.

Greetings from Tulum, Mexico


“Imagine a roadtrip with the best friend, to travel exactly where you want - and where a new adventure awaits around every corner. Imagine experience unforgettable memories, to get out on an inspirational journey where earth, wind, fire and water act as backdrop for your spontaneous stops along the way. Imagine getting to roll freely, stop wherever you want and experience the adventure that awaits the dawn of each new day.” Odd Molly and Plaza Kvinna gave two best friends the opportunity to experience a roadtrip together. The competition was to take a picture from a trip that the best friends had previously done together, hashtag #oddmollyplazakvinnaroadtrip and justify by maximum 20 words why we should make the adventure possible. The winners were best friends Hanna Moe and Katarina Bengtsson. They went on their dream trip to Tulum, Mexico. Thank you for all the lovely pics, girls!








The best way to get around...












Snorkelling at Casa Conote. No one told us that there were crocodiles until afterwards...
















Hanna on the beach in historic Tulum.

Unlike other Mayan ruins, this archaeological site is found on the Yucatan peninsula right by the water.












At leisure around the Maya ruins in Coba.

When the city was at its peak during the Mayan period, it is believed to have had almost 50 000 inhabitants.

















Enjoying the views from the ruins in Coba!












Katarina on the beach in Tulum, on the Yacatan peninsula northeast coast.
















Our favorite snack: coconut straight from the tree.












Awesome rawfood at Hotel Sanará in Tulum.
