New Year's Eve











It's soon New Year's Eve, and on this day everyone is dressing up for the special ocassion. But the most difficult with this is what you're going to wear. I have many dresses with different colours, and it takes a lot of time to choose which dress I am going to wear.

But recently, I have made it easier to stick with dark coloured dresses like black, dark purple, burgundy and dark blue and combined it with golden details. So if you're clueless of what you're going to wear. I have added some examples of dresses from Dynamite Clothing which can be in good help for which colours and textures work perfectly together for New Year's Eve. The dresses are also perfect for parties and any other occasions where you have to dress up a little bit special. Other places for dresses and inspiration are:

However, I wish you all a wonderful New Year's Eve with family and friends, and that you all find a special dress you're going to wear, and let's hope that 2014 will be better!!

60's and flowers part 2




Here're some photos I haven't posted before from my 60's inspired look. My make up is inspired by Twiggy, who was a well known model from the 60's. As you probably know I'm really fond of the 60's. It's something with the era which interests me, like the quality of the movies, fashion, make up and music. In a couple of days I will post a post where I write more about me, so look forward to that!

Calendar project, bloggers world & Magazine feature










As you probably know I love art in all kind of forms, and when Lu asked me if I wanted to take part in a calendar project I didn't hesitate any minute. It's basically a calendar project called Blogger's world which is a calendar featuring bloggers from different parts of the world. It's very interesting. because you learn about the bloggers in a different way, and you get to know new bloggers. I always love to know new bloggers and get inspired by their works.

When I received the calendar I was really excited for the result, and I have to say that I am impressed by the work she has put into this calendar. I love the design of the calendar, simple and beautiful. I also received a cute message from her which really warms my heart. She is a graphic designer, and if you want to read more about the calendar project and support her work you can purchase the calendar here

I am also featured in Cliche Magazine for the streetstyle section. For print the Magazine can be purchased here and if you want to read it online then it's possible to do it here

 

Anyways, I hope that you had a lovely Christmas, and more blog posts will be coming soon. Two days ago I wasn't finished with writing this post, and I accidently posted it, but deleted it. But what really suprised me was, a couple of readers had already seen it after a couple of seconds! It's a great feeling and it keeps me motivated to keep blogging.

Merry Christmas


 
Merry Christmas lovely blog readers! I wish you all a wonderful day with the beloved ones, and that you got what you wished for! It's usually snow on Christmas day where I live, but this year it's raining. But it's still filled with Christmas spirit in the house. I have been waking up very early, opening Christmas gifts and I have been watching Three Wishes For Cinderella. Later today, I'm going to have Christmas dinner and spend a lot of time with my family. I'm also going to wear a 60's inspired outfit, hairstyle and make up.
 
Merry Christmas!

Christmas time


 
 
Coat - Vintage
Scarf - Ebay
Pants - Bikbok
Shoes - Din Sko

It's a long time ago since I had a proper outfit post. The weather is getting colder, and since it was going to rain during the day I had to take outfit photos when it was still snow. It's always snow on Christmas day which gives the extra Christmas spirit, but this year it's not going to be snow at all. I love listening to Christmas songs, and I have many favourites, but Last Christmas by Wham always cheers me up during Christmas time. I love Christmas movies like The Grinch and Three Wishes For Cinderella. Christmas is definitely the best time of the year!   
 
Anyways, I hope that you like the vintage inspired outfit. I really love dark blue and brown coats  As you probably know I really love science, philosophy as much as art. But I am more a philosopher, and my interest started when I was just a child. I always asked philosophical questions and wondering about why we live here. It's an interesting thing. I started reading about the greatest philosophers like Platon etc. But I came across an interesting discussion about a philosophical question, Oscar Wilde has discussed it in one his essays and Lana Del Rey has mentioned it in one of her songs called Gods and Monsters. So here it goes: 
 
Does art imitates life or does life imitates art?

Christmas gift tips

It's soon Christmas, and the city is filled with people, shopping for Christmas gifts. We also have a Christmas market in the middle of the city which sells all kind of Christmas stuff. Our house is completely decorated with Christmas decorations. When I was little I wrote a Christmas play every Christmas, I and my cousins would preform it for our families. I thought it would turn out awkwardly, but despite the little time we practiced it turned out really great. I still have that on tape, and since we were only three we managed to find a way to change roles.

My friends and I always give Chritmas gifts to each other, and I have to say it's sometimes difficult to find a gift which is perfect for a person. I love art, and when people give me gifts which they have used a lot of time and creativity to put together I always get happy. It's the message behind the gift which means something .

But for you who have little time and want some ideas and tips for Christmas gifts here it comes.
When I shop for Christmas gifts I always think about a gift which gives a great representation of this person, something which you can use a lot or something this person has wanted for a long time. Watches are very practical, and are perfect for both men and women. For example: ladies lipsy-rose-gold-bracelet watch    
Another tips is dresses which you can wear in any occasion. For example: Dresshop and okdress
Above I have added a couple of photos of different clothings and things which can be some ideas for Christmas gifts. But there're plenty of other things like hair accessories, make up, electronic devices etc.

Snow


I'm really sorry for the lack of updates, but I have been really busy with school and exams. During my absence I have been working with a project where I got featured in a calendar which can be purchased online. I will tell you more about it later in my next entry. I have also been spending more time with family and friends. I have been swimming a lot lately, because I was sick the whole autumn and I saw that I just needed training to the level before I was sick (I don't often get sick, but this time I was sick in two weeks, and then I got sick two more weeks). 
 
I think you guys don't know my passion for swimming. But I love swimming a lot. I have been swimming since I was 4 years old, and I often swim twice a week. I have been doing this in more than ten years. I have also considered to join a swimming team, but the schredule was training five days a week, and school was getting really hectic at the time so I went swimming when I had time.     
 
Anyways, I have also been decorating the christmas tree, and I have also been eating a lot of gingerbread and I am going to make a gingerbread house. It's snow in Norway, so I have to start taking outfit photos when it's still snow.
 
Have you baked a gingerbread house before?
