Supporting the spring’s biggest trend?

Yeah I sort of am! 😉 Black and white is one of the most over exploit trends this spring I think. Don’t get me wrong black and white during spring and summer IS rocking it for me, however when was it NOT a trend? 😉 I like to add a pop of colour to it (as you might know…) so here’s an example of using black and whites with pop of colour (please do forgive my sad and washed out tights…) 😉

“The black discussion”

Hm, yes I tend to have this discussion with most of my friends. Now most recently with the lovely Gretchen, or well more her, uhm brother, one could say. 😉 Robert as soooo many of my stylish swedish friends adores black. Well let´s take this back to womens fashion where I am a little more at home. Most swedish women wears mostly black from fall until spring and then maybe during the summer a pop of colour can be worn. I am opposite. I never (well let´s say til at least 90% of never) wears black during fall, winter, spring. I prefer browns as a base and just loooves to use all sort of colours into my outfits. During summertime I can wear an occasionally black or black and white outfit. When everyone else is wearing colour. Hm, am I just obstinate?! At least I am not worse then that I can admit a defeat… I was browsing through fall 2013 fashion and actually found outfits I surely could wear! And yes Robert, if you are reading this, you know by what designer… 😉

All four of the wonderful creations above are by one of my favourite designers, John Galliano. The first two is from his fall line and the second two from his resort collection. Yes I would wear this outfits! All though that don´t mean I will be starting to wear all black! 😉 Maybe an occassionally dress or pant or so…but I still am more of a colourful lady! The more the better, right? 😉

My look for non traditional easter dinner wiff fiancé…

Yeah we just wanted to spend time together this easter day. So after a looong walk in the sunshine, coffe downtown, some chillin in the sofa at home we decided to go out for dinner. We ended up ( as usual 😉 ) at a local italian restaurant with the best pizzas ever! 🙂 Chevré toast as starter, real thin and crisp italian pizza and then pannacotta to tip things of, yummy! When we got home I asked my fiancé to take some photos so I could share my todays look with you guys and I got company by the cutest lil model you´ve ever seen! 😉 Always nice to get a proper welcome when one steps inside the door…

Nails of the week; Happy Dotted Easter!

Friday always means new look on my nails (but yes I realise it´s passed midnight and that it will look like this post was put up on saturday, however I still think it´s friday so hmpf if you say otherwise 😉 ) and since it is easter I wanted to use fun colours. I decided on a yellow background with colourfull dots.

IMG_1821[1]

For this look I used a total of 7 different polishes including the dry fast top coat from Seche Vite. I used a yellow nailpolish from Depend (356) as a base then added dots using the back end of a match and the head of a sewing pin. The orange polish is also from Depend (124). The turquise dots are made with the turquise polish in this trio and the pink ones from the pink in this trio. The green and dark purple dots are made of two of these polishes. Dots are a rather easy way to make a fun pattern on your nails and according to me a good way to start with nailart! Don´t rush putting on your topcoat though because the dots do need their drying time! (If you look closely you´ll see that patience isn´t my strong side…;) )

Hope you enjoyed the dots and your good friday! Happy Easter everyone!!!

Longing for fall?!

Yes! For a short period of time today I actually did! Wich is soooo weird…because I just can´t wait for it to become warmer here! Just the fact that it snowed this weekend made me instantly wanna move to the Caribbeans! So what triggered this weird and abnormal longning for fall then you might wonder? Well, I was browsing the web for some DIY tips. I have soooo many ideas at the moment but just not enough time to make them real since they all are a little bigger projects… I really hope I can get at least one made this weekend…cross your fingers for me! Well back to this fall-longing-buisness. I came across the 2013 fall line for Libertine. I soooo loved it! For most of my friends it would be over the top but I have always had a love for rich colours and ethnic patterns. So I thought I share some of my favourite looks with you guys! Here we go!

Spring is on it’s way!

Spring is on its way and I could really feel it on my way to work this morning! (Unfortunately it also means my allergies kick in but lets not destroy this lovely first sight of springtime…) When I arrive at the boutique we had gotten new spring socks from Marimekko. Really lovely spring colours! Makes me think of light blue jeans rolled up and the socks showing of their loveliness down into a sneaker, soft spring breezes and sunny days!

And the makeup to go with it….

My makeup today is a combination of old favourite products and the new ones I am trying out right now. Easy yet elegant. Soft yet sophisticated.

IMG_1607[1]

Base: Foundation I bling I touch (or whatever it is called…?) nr 22, loose powder Vsoya nr 2, bronze powder H&M
Blush: Worship from FACE
Eyes: Eyelid Gräddkola from Makeupfabriken, under brow and inner corner of eye Vanilj from Makeupfabriken and Knäck from Makeupfabriken in the crease. All shadows can be found HERE. I tried this creme eyeliner from Efolar for the first time today and so far I am really liking it, very easy to apply exactly how you´d like it. I also tried this mascara from Vsoya for the first time and the small brush was perfect to blend my own lashes with these false ones. For the brows I first used Kakao from Makeupfabriken and then the browpen from Populart in nr 2. I also used the Kryolan kajal pen in Highlight on my lower waterline to open up the eye.
Lips: Survivor from Makeupstore
