Rising stylist Sigrún Ásta Jörgensen has worked with everyone from Tessuti UK to Lykke Li and Vök. More importantly, she also often styles Grapevine cover shoots. Here’s how her perfect day would unfold.

First thing in the morning
On my perfect day, I find myself on a well-deserved day off and wake up very excited. I always wake up around 7:00 AM with my husband and kids, and first drink some fresh-made coffee. Oh god, the first coffee in the morning is a life saver. If I don’t get my coffee, I’m a cranky mama. We all have breakfast together and then I give my babies a lot of hugs and kisses and take them to day-care.

My husband and I get ready and head to the Blue Lagoon retreat. I have dreamt of going there since it opened. Parents of newborn twins need some adult time. We have cocktails, get massages and float around the Blue Lagoon for hours laughing and having a great time!

For lunch, we go to the LAVA Blue Lagoon restaurant and order everything from the menu to try with matching high-end wines. We end the meal with a nice créme brulée, and take the bus back to Reykjavík. There, we are flirting and having fun. Yes, I am a foodie and wine lover.

In the afternoon
We arrive at home and end up having sex all over our apartment. Then, we relax and play cards in bed.

Early evening
I start getting ready for the night. I always love getting ready—it’s like my “me time.” I do the “no makeup, makeup look, “ with a little bit of a glam touch. I feel fabulous and I’m ready for the night to start.

This is a girls night out. We start with a nice dinner at Grillmarkaðurinn, where we have the ‘Trip To The Countryside’ menu. It’s so delicious and it feels so good to eat all that nice food. We wash it down with a couple of bottles of Domaine Leroy Chambertin Grand Cru 1990. We sit there for a couple of hours eating, drinking and having a good time.

In the heat of the night
After dinner, we head to a concert—FM Belfast are performing. We dance wildly into the night. What a show! We continue onwards to Kaffibarinn, where DJ Margeir is playing his awesome tunes. We wrap the night up with a pizza and head home.
