As mum and dad used to remind us; you can't judge a book by its cover.  This is a lesson that is a good one to try and carry through all phases of life, as you never know what is going on behind the scenes. Take this weeks curator, Malin for example. From the outside, Malin is a blue eyed, blonde, sweet and innocent Swedish nurse, but peel those layers back and you will find a horror film obsessed, spirit hunting, absolutely wonderful weirdo! 
This weeks playlist is certainly the most eclectic to date, from the wild mind of Malin.  
It has been a pleasure having her company around our parts for the last little while, and are stoked to have been able to share some waves and adventures with her, and remember what a unique and incredible human Malin is!  We hope you enjoy this playlist as much as we have, it certainly has been a thrill listening to it. 
If you ever want your playlist featured, please get in touch with us here on instagram or send us an email at

Describe to us your ultimate dream day…

Waking up on a mountain top to the sounds of birds and insects. It’s sunny so I grab my horse and ride down the mountain to the local cafe and grab a coffee. Then I spend some time at the beach, swim, surf (might also have to read something crime related). Finishing the day with a sunset picnic.

How do you measure success?

By how many people I can help, inspire and bring out the best versions of themselves. I strongly believe in paying it forward.

Do you have any unusual skills?

What are some of your daily/weekly rituals?

Get out of bed every morning, start the day with hot lemon water, moisturise and meditate.

Are you more of an introvert or an extrovert? Or somewhere inbetween?

Hmm… introvert I would say, but once I took a test that stated that I am a 60% extrovert. Guess that would leave me in between.

What are your strengths you are most proud of?

Independent and resilient.

Any guilty pleasures? 

Yes. Watching too many crime shows, chocolate coated raspberries and an occasional Mickidee burger.

If you were an animal, what animal would you be?

A more assertive human

When was the last time you laughed so hard you nearly wet your pants (or maybe you even followed through)?

I don’t think it started out as a laugh, more like the other way around. I was in need of a bathroom on a flight, basically didn’t get there in time…  a wet seat later and a very chatty lady next to me, we awkwardly shared a laugh.
