inspires me, so I had to take some pictures
2. some more...
3. picked up my passport-one step closer to california!!
4. oh, my. we're turning this into a food blog ;) delicious tomato/mozzarella
salad
5. the view of the sunset from my room
6. last week, when the weather was so bad: the bright blue sky was visible through
a hole in the clouds


See? My life's not all about fashion. I eat, too.

New in: sale shopping

bralet from H&M (€10); green heels from Zara (€20)

These are my favourite picks from the sale last week. I've been opting for that bralet for a while, but I didn't really know how to combine it and so it came a little pricey with its €25. But now that I found it in the sale, I couldn't resist it anymore. And then at Zara, I finally fell for the pointed toe heel trend. I've always wanted coloured shoes and since I never wear my pink ones (think I'll sell them), I decided to go with green instead. Love them!

I love her





Adele. She's just perfect. I love her voice and her music. If I had one wish it'd be to sing like her.

Outfit/25062011


H&M blazer
H&M conscious collection top
Levi's curve ID jeans
Casio mini watch

Just checking in really quick as I need to study. How's your weekend so far?
I finally got a piece from the H&M conscious collection- in the sale. I think the top is really cute. The sale has gone totally crazy now but I guess last week's little shopping trip was the last for a while now (need to save some € -or $ for that matter- for my trip to the US this summer).

So, now I'm off -have a good time!

New in: earrings


dragonfly + peacock earrings bijou brigitte; crown earrings from market in Ystad (Sweden)

I got the first two pairs as a late birthday gift from my godmother when she came over to cut my hair last week (it's so great to have a hairdresser you can totally trust!). My mum went on a business trip to Ystad in Sweden over the weekend and brought home those cute crown jewels (haha) for me.
Kunglig, huh? (means 'royal'..one of the few swedish words I know)

Outfit/21062011



H&M top,blazer
DIY shorts
Casio mini watch
Swarovski ring

People- finally another outfit post! The weather has been making it hard to wear all my new beautiful summer clothes recently, but last night I came up with this idea for, well, layering the pieces.

I took the hairstyle inspiration from the adorable Angelica. Doesn't show that well in the pictures, but I really liked it.

Strangely, when I walked through the city/home today, sooo many people stared at me as if I was wearing something, I don't know, filthy or insulting or just totally out of the line. I mean, I guess you ladies know that men (particuarly old men...eww!) tend to stare at womens' legs. But today it were almost exclusively women, giving me these looks. So, does my outfit look any weird to you? Because to me, it doesn't. But maybe there's something I just don't see... ;)

Peek-A-Boo

Just a quick hello! I learned how to animate in photoshop today, just in between studying and work. Went pretty fast :) I'm sorry I didn't post in a while, I'm just busy with my studies, as I've said.

In the animation you can see my new hair length. Like it? The split ends just became longer and longer, so I had to have that much chopped off. For my standards, my hair is pretty short now haha. But it feels nice and healthy now, for a change.

What's in my bag

Since i can't post this much now/don't wear any fancy outfits because once again, exam time is coming up, I thought I'd to the typical 'What's in my bag' post. Seems like a standard post every blog has to have ;) So here we go... (i also always bring my keys with me, but i thought that information is sort of redundant)


american apparel medium carry-all pouch; glamour magazine; wallet from mango; iPod; astor perfect stay concealer; lipbalm; sony ericsson vivaz pro phone in union jack-case from accessorize

playsuit from cubus, (gorgeous!-photo doesn't do it justice) dress from Zara

Outfit/11062011


Zara tee
New Yorker faux leather shorts
Casio mini watch

This is what I wore yesterday, for a usual day at work. The mustard yellow tee is one of my purchases from Friday (I'll show you some more later). We shopped a hell lot, haha. (Maybe that's my talent..ahem).
I don't have much more to say, because if I do, I'll probably talk about the fact that I have to study and I don't wanna think about that right now... So, toodles!

Sporty Spice?!

I swear I didn't set this up! I just threw my shoes in the corner the other day and they landed on top of my dumb-bells. I love how this photo creates the illusion that I might be both fashionable and sporty. Well, one of those is true about me. Can you guess which one it is? ;)

Outfit/07062011



Weekday top
Pimkie pants
New Look belt

Sorry for my pixelated face in the second pic.. It was the one that portrays my outfit best but my face looked like shit ;) It's an outfit-post, so it's the outfit that matters anyways, right?

Hope you guys like the look, I've been bad at pulling together looks lately... I really need some fresh stuff in my closet. I'm soo looking forward to going shopping with my mum on friday! She used to be a stylist, so I guess I'm in good hands. She actually always picks the things nobody else sees/wears (but that still look great), even in H&M! My sis, btw, always picks the best stuff during sale. I wouldn't mind having one of those talents either..but well, I don't. I wonder what my secret shopping talent might be, though. Doesn't every woman have one? Do you have one?

Do you take a piece of lime?






Cool sparkling water with some pieces of lime is my favourite drink on hot days.
I love how artistic the bubbles look together with the limes. When, one day, I get my own apartment, I'll buy really big prints of similar pictures and decorate my kitchen with them!

Gift Time






As promised, my birthday gifts. I hope you don't think I meant to brag. Think of it as some sort of a haul... ;) I didn't want any gifts, but I guess you all know it's useless to say so.

My crazy boyfriend gave me this nice Swarovski ensemble (and no, we're not engaged now with that ring). My mum picked out the sweet necklace you see in the first picture. It's so beautiful! Can't wait to wear it! And thanks to my friends and boyfriend (again, duh!) I finally got my hands on that gorgeous American Apparel carry-all pouch. It smells sooo good (of leather)!! They also got me a YSL lipstick (i'll keep the packaging, it's just so nice) and that shea butter set from The Body Shop. I love that scent!

I also got a suitcase, so now I'm really ready for L.A.!

So if any of my friends read this: Thank You! Again. ♥

Birthday Photodiary







1. it may not come out right in the photos, but I spent all day in the kitchen..I heard the food was good ;)
2. my shrimps/courgette salad..I'm so proud of this recipe!
3. cupcakes!
4. me and my (pixelated) ladies
5. and me and my (also pixelated) man

So now I'm officially 20. Whoa, sounds a little old to me... I had a blast last night. We had a party at my place and all my friends came :) Really made my day! I also love how it's always sunny on my birthday. I even got to extend my tan a bit.
I'll definitely show you my gifts later (not because I want to brag, but because they're just so nice). Btw, I wore a dress from H&M which is really old... (and looked a bit like a nightgown) I tried on tons of different dresses and skirts and tops.. The buffet was perfect but I just didn't know what to wear. So frustrating - always happens to me! My wardrobe really needs an update now. That's official!

That's where I leave you for now. Awww, I really had such a good time ♥

And thanks to all the lovely readers who wished me a happy birthday yesterday!!

My ultimate wishlist


skirt monki; blazer + tops h&m; bandeau top gina tricot; ring weekday; dungaree monki; jean jacket h&m; necklace weekday; skirt gina tricot

It's probably a little late for a wishlist, since my birthday is tomorrow (whoohooo). But lately, I've spent (what felt like) hours and hours in front of my closet every morning, convinced I have absolutely nothing to wear. Sounds familiar, right, ladies? Getting dressed can be a game, but sometimes I just tend to forget the rules... And with this cold in the morning/sunny at noon/rainy in the afternoon-weather we've had lately it wasn't exactly easy to pick an outfit either. Skirt or pants? Tights, no tights? Is a skirt too dressy? Just jeans and tee too casual? Sounds like a stupid problem to have, I know. But to my defence, I have to say: I'm always a little stupid in the mornings. Sometimes I 'hear' myself think right after getting up and I can't even believe where my thoughts are at. I guess there's some sort of an autopilot taking over my head mixing any kinds of words together I ever knew when I'm tired. Okay, this makes me sound like a psycho (which I'm not..as far as I know).
Alright, back to business: I really wouldn't mind getting all the pieces from the wishlist. I think it'd solve my "what to wear"-problem for a while. And since my mum's birthday gift to me will be a shopping tour, who knows - maybe I'll end up with a super duper great closet upgrade (or something...). I'll keep you updated on that one ;)
But for now, I have to go.. I'm cleaning the house since I'll have a party at my place tomorrow. Toodles!

PS: Oh, and, happy Father's Day! (mine's chilling in Spain now...lucky man)

Austria Photodiary - Part 2





1. a cute traditional bakery - doesn't that stuff look so delicious?
2. we took a little cruise on a motor boat (never did that before)
3. baaad weather approaching. i just love how this looks in the hills
4. there was someone performing stunts or something with their little plane, it was actually quite impressive (mostly cause we didn't expect it)

Where there's a part 1, there has to be a part 2 eventually... But those are all my phoots from the Austria trip, promise ;)
I'm very relaxed now (though I should probably be studying) because my weekend starts right now since tomorrow is a holiday and friday's my regular day off uni. Have a good one!
