Tis been a while etc etc…

So my plan backfired…lol I thought I´d have time and inspiration to get back here but it has taken me a coupple of months. Sowwy! 😉 So last time I promised to show something from the new stuff I got from Kiko´s in Paris. Here´s my latest nails where I used color nr 373 from Kiko over the entire nail and just added a lil spark on the outer/upper corner. Such a easy way to add a little zazz on an ordinary polish! Hope you´ll enjoy! And that you missed me! ;P

I just fell in love…

…and that my friends is a good sign to that I am well again! LOL I have been having some sort of flue the last few days and since Sunday really been under the weather… 😦 Poor lil me! 😉 Today I was feeling a bit better and thought I´d scoop the web for some inspiration for what I might wear to a dear friends wedding this summer. I know, I am way a head of myself (as usual) since the invitations haven´t even arrived yet. But still. I like to be prepared! One thing led to another and BAM there they were…my new and totally unconditional love! I WANT! I NEED!

They´re just classy enough for me to wear and just crazy enough for me to love! I found them on Lightinthebox.com (surprised???) so they are also totally cheap! Do you think these babies should move to me in near future?!

“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…

New clothes for the cats?

So now that I started on my DIY project to turn a cardigan and a dress into a jacket (read my first post about it HERE) I was thinking that maybe I should use the leftovers to sew new clothes for my cats. Well my cats are of the breed Sphynx wich means they are naked and that means that they sometimes when we travel wears clothes… The little one doesn´t mind at all however the chubby cat with the hot temper goes into one of her bad moods when she has to wear a jacket… Now they wear black fleece jumpers I sew of my mothers old fleece jacket together with a dogjacket. But maybe it´s time for something more fashionable?!

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!

Gårdagens makeup

Så jag fick en del förfrågningar angående den makeup jag bar igår. Ni kanske såg den på avstånd i inlägget Off to work! Den gick i gröna toner efter inspiration från min sporttopp…jag vet tokig mua/danspedagog… 😉 Bilderna tog jag igår i all hast så tyvärr är de inte de bästa men ni kanske får en idé om det hela. Dessutom lyckades jag få skuggor i bilderna… Så det ser lite ojämnt ut tyvärr.

Basen är lagd med .FÄRGs mineralpuder Nordic Winter Fair. Då den är lite för ljus för mig dustade jag ansiktet med ett bronzingpuder efter. Jag använde H&Ms Bronspuder. Rouget är från Makeupstore i nyansen Lush. Ögonmakeupen är lagd med tre skuggor. Jag började med den ljusgröna, som jag lade från fransraden över hela locket upp till globlinjen och under ögat. Skuggan är från Lancome men jag vet tyvärr inte vad den heter då den utgått ur deras sortiment. Därefter lade jag en mörkgrön skugga i yttre ögonvrån och i globlinjen. Denna skugga kommer från Isadora och har tyvärr också utgått från sortimentet. Deras eyeshadow trio Forest nr 84 har en liknande grön. Denna färg lade jag också under ögat i den yttre tredjedelen. Jag avslutade med en ljusrosa skugga under ögonbrynet och i inre ögonvrån. Jag använde den ljusrosa skuggan i Noubas Quattro nr 628. För att få mjuka övergångar använd en blender brush över skarvarna. Ögonbrynen är ifyllda med .FÄRGs Choklad och på fransarna finns Isadoras Precision Mascara deep black. På läpparna finnes Clarins gloss Sweet Papaya. Clarins gloss är riktigt härliga och mjuka att bära!

Pöss på er!
