Chop chop

Jeg skal vre rlig og si at det ikke er bare, bare med en liten en p vei midt i leilighetssalg og husjakt i en helt annen del av landet. Derfor var det helt ubeskrivelig deilig starte dagen hos Slve p Spagetti i dag. Det er kanskje ikke s lett se akkurat her, men hret har ikke bare blitt kortere, det er lysere ogs. Skikkelig vrhr med andre ord. N skal jeg sren meg blafre med hret resten av dagen!

Book time med Slve her.

I'll be honest and tell you guys that it's not easy with a little one on the way in the middle of selling our apartment and looking for houses in a whole other city. That's why it felt so damn nice to visit my hairdresser, Slve, today. Maybe it's not that easy to see, but my hair actually went both blonder and shorter. I love it! Now I'll throw my hair around the rest of the day.

Det er ikke ofte jeg blir glad for regn, men n var det faktisk litt gy kunne ta frem igjen de lrhye bootsene mine. Kjresten min kaller meg bare for Fantomet nr jeg har dem p, men det fr vre greit. Jeg digger dem! Skulle gjerne hatt et par i semsket skinn ogs egentlig.

-
I don't usually wish for rain, but it was actually a bit fun being able to wear my thigh high boots again. My boyfriend just call me The Phantom when I wear them, but I love them! Wishing for a pair in suede too.

Jeg elsker fine flasker og blir stadig vekk lurt til kjpe produkter jeg egentlig ikke trenger og som ikke er noe srlig gode. For det er jo ikke snn at alt som ser bra ut faktisk er bra (prver overbevise meg selv ogs). N har jeg imidlertid samlet noen produkter som skal vre skikkelig gode, og fine samtidig. Jeg tror det blir en liten runde Ebay i kveld, gitt.

-
I love nice bottles and keep being tricked into buying products that I don't really need and that doesn't really work. Because let's be honest, it's not like everything that looks good actually is (trying to convince myself here). Now I've managed to collect a few products that is supposed to be really good, and look good too. I'm definitely heading over to Ebay tonight.

New bling

Det ser faktisk ut til at jeg kan krysse av det ene punktet p mai-listen min allerede! For denne ear cuffen er temmelig r spr du meg. Jeg har skikkelig gulldilla, og et par glitrende stener gjr liksom ingenting det heller. I tillegg elsker jeg smykker som kan brukes til alt fra jeans til kjole og disse er akkurat diskret nok til det. Alt er fra et nytt dansk merke som heter Lola's Project.

-
It actually looks like I cross out one tiny part of my May list already! Because this ear cuff is quite rad if you ask me. I'm totally hooked on gold, and a couple of sparkling stones doesn't hurt either. Also I love jewelry that can be used with anything from jeans to dresses, and these are just discrete enough for that mission. Everything is from a new Danish brand calles Lola's Project.

The May list



Jeg har hoppet over et par lister, men n er den tilbake!

1. WEAR MORE EARTH COLOURS |So I guess most of us know a couple of shades that fit our skin tones extra well. For me that is earthy colours like beige and powdery pink. Still I end up wearing way to much black. This month I have got to start thinking about what actually suits me again.
2. FIND SOME RAD EARRINGS |
I'm in love with the pierced earring trend going on right now and I'm dying to find a pair of golden beauties to welcome the spring with. Maybe one of these?
3. END THE PARKA SEARCH |This one is a lot more difficult than it sounds (trust me). Please let me know if you know of any, I want one so bad!
4. TRUST MY GUTT |
With all the stylish people all around the world wide web it's easy to get lost. Especially during spring and summer I think. I always look back at my outfits during hot days not knowing what I was thinking (it is kind of fun, though). So I'm definitely going to trust my gutt a bit more this spring!
5. EXPERIMENT WITH MY NAILS |
I won't go all crazy, but I think it so cute with just a little black sticker or something on a pale pink nail. Never wear it myself, but I'm definitely going to try. Just need to get better on the patience thing, I always ruin my nails while waiting for them to dry. Found a few excellent tips on afterdrk though (check it out, I've already bookmarked it).
6. FIND A SUMMER SCENT |
I was so in love with my Black Saffron scent from Byredo, but now I need something new. I think the pregnancy has made my nose all crazy. Any nice scents to recommend? PS! I'm a sucker for nice bottles too.
7. PRACTICE BRAIDS |
There's so many nice messy braids around, and I wan't them too. Check out my hair board on Pinterest to see more styles I'm going to practice this month.
8. MAKE MATERNITY OUTFITS EXCITING |So I've reached the point where I think it's really boring not to be able to wear anything I'd like. I see those gorgeous crop tops and pieces I can't wear instead of the opportunities. That has got to end!

Outfit | Dungarees again

Jeg har nesten glemt hvor komfortabelt det er med snekkerbukse! Noe s deilig. Det er imidlertid litt vanskelig bruke synes jeg, men med en skjorte under genseren og en bikerjakke fler jeg meg akkurat passe casual og pkledd.

-
I'd almost forgot how comfortable dungarees really are! I mean, they're great. However I think it's a bit hard to wear, but with a shirt underneath the sweater and a biker jacket I feel just casual and dressed up enough.

Wouldn't mind #21

Photo/Tommy Ton for style.com.

Hver eneste vr leter jeg etter den perfekte grnne parkasen, men jeg finner den jo aldri (jeg m virkelig slutte lage meg bilder av drmmeplagg som ikke finnes)! Jeg husker at jeg hadde en fra H&M nr jeg gikk p videregende som jeg brukte til den ble helt utslitt, men ingen kan liksom mle seg med den. Noen av dere som har sett noen fine? Det er jo den perfekte vrjakken! Passer til alt, og ekstra godt til hvite jeans synes jeg.

-
I start searching for the perfect green parka every spring, but I never seem to find it (story of my life, I have to stop creating dream pieces in my head that doesn't exist!) I remember I had one during high school that I used until it was no longer wearable, but no one can match in. Anyone of you guys seen any? I mean, it's the perfect spring jacket! Goes with anything, but looks great with white jeans I think.

May wishes

1. DUNGAREES|I went all in on dungarees trend last spring, and I'm still not sick of it. However, I'm missing a black one in my closet and this one would be so cute with the baby belly.
2. BIG SHOPPER (SIMILAR HERE)|This shopper is all over the place these days and I think it's really nice. I would love a pretty bag with room for all the stuff I bring around during summer time. I'm talking towels, camera and all that stuff. Diapers too, in a while.
3. SANDALS|I don't think I'll be buying heels anytime soon, but these are so pretty.
4.CLEAR SUNGLASSES|I love clear plastic. Whether it's sunglasses, iPhone covers, tamagotchies or whatever.
5. BASIC T-SHIRT |This is the thing constantly missing from my closet. I don't know where my basics go. I ruin them in the washing machine (hopeless cleaner when it comes to clothes), get spots or holes on them.
6.PALE PINK LIPSTICK|I'm kind of tired of those very pink and red lips, so now I'm looking for a more discrete shade, like this one.
7.RINGS|Can't believe I've actually started to wear rings on a regular basis. Now I can't get enough!
8.GOLDEN WATCH (SIMILAR HERE) |This one is just perfect, and I am actually missing a watch with golden details.
9.BLACK NAIL POLISH|Just because my old one is empty.
10. PHONE COVER |I actually just ordered this one. Can't wait to get it!

Outfit | Trench and stripes

Er det noe jeg er avhengig av om dagen, s er det striper. Hver morgen tenker jeg at i dag m jeg ha p meg noe annet enn striper, men likevel ender jeg opp med g ut dren med striper til slutt. N har babybollen imidlertid begynt bli spass stor at denne genseren er i ferd med minne om en magetopp, s jeg tror jeg m p stripeshopping asap!

-
If there's something I'm addicted to these days, it's stripes. Every morning I try to wear something else for a change, but still I end up leaving the apartment in stripes after all. However, my baby bump is getting quite big, so this sweater is actually starting to remind me more of a crop top than anything else. I think I'll have to go stripe shopping asap!

Happy weekend

Endelig helg igjen! Og jeg gleder meg skikkelig til endelig f tatt en ordentlig titt i Porter Magazine. Jeg fikk aldri tak i det frste, s dette blir spennende. Net-a-porter leverer jo aldri fra seg noe drlig virker det som, s jeg regner med at jeg har en skikkelig kosestund i vente. Noen av dere som har lest det? Uansett, nyyt fredagen!

-
Finally weekend again! And I can't wait to finally take a closer look on Porter Magazine. I never got a hold of the first one, so this is going to be exciting. But then again, net-a-porter never seem to deliver a bad product, so I bet I have a great time ahead of me. Have you read it yet? Anyway, enjoy your Friday sweeties!

Outfit | Take a bow

Jeg er et skikkelig vanedyr nr det kommer til hret mitt, men jeg har funnet ut at jeg m bli mye flinkere eksprimentere. Spesielt n nr jeg endelig har ftt s langt hr! S selv som fletter er langt utenfor min komfortsone, valgte jeg vise meg offentlig med fletter likevel. Hva synes dere? Jeg fler det ser ganske sukkerstt ut (jeg skulle sikkert egentlig ha blitt gutt), men liker det egentlig bare bedre og bedre.

-
I'm such a sucker for old habits when it comes to my hair, but I've decided that I have to get better on experimenting. Especially now that my hair is so long! So even though braids are far outside my comfort sone, I choose to show myself with braids in public after all. What do you think? I feel a bit to "cute" and girly (I bet I was meant to be a boy), but I actually like it a lot more after a while.

In today's bag



Det er virkelig sommerstemning her i grden, og det merkes p innholdet i vesken ogs. Fuktighet er, som jeg har nevnt tidligere, enda viktigere. Solbriller ogs!

ULTRA RESTORATIVE CREME | Jeg har brukt Exuviance (alt fra rens til foundation) i over en mned n, og jeg har aldri vrt s fornyd med huden fr. Og dette kommer fra ei som ikke har hatt tro p den slags i det hele tatt. Denne kremen har jeg alltid med i vesken, og under sminken, for snne som meg som sliter med litt trr hud og nsker mer fukt og glans.
LIP GLOSS| Lip gloss minner meg egentlig veldig om videregende, men jeg synes det er s fint n nr solen skinner. Denne har forstrrende effekt p leppene, men gjr de litt trre, s det kan vre lurt med en vanlig lypsyl i bakhnd.
CREME BLUSH| Jeg elsker blush! Dessverre har den en tendens til forsvinne utover dagen, s da har jeg med denne som jeg smrer p kinnbena.
SUNGLASSES| Solbriller er med overalt. Disse er fra Prada.
HAND CREAM| Denne hndkremen er helt fantastisk. Et av mine favorittprodukter ret gjennom!

-
I'm having the best summer feeling these days, and you can even feel it in my bag. Moisturizers is, as I've mentioned earlier, even more important. Sunglasses too!

ULTRA RESTORATIVE CREME| I've been using Exuviance (everything from cleanser to foundation) for over a month now, and I've never been happier with my skin. This comes from someone who never believed in stuff like this. This cream I bring everywhere (and wear under my makeup), because it's perfect if you're struggeling with dry skin, like me, and keep dreaming of that perfect glow.
LIP GLOSS| Lip gloss kind of reminds me of high school, but I think it looks so good when the sun is shining. This one has a plumping effect, but it makes my lips kind of dry after a while, so I recommend bringing a lip balm too.
CREME BLUSH| I love blush! Unfortunately it tend to disappear during the day, so I bring this one that I apply to my cheek bones.
SUNGLASSES| Can't go a day without sunglasses.
HAND CREAM| This hand cream is simply amazing. One of my favourite products all year around.

On my list



I fjor sommer brukte jeg flate sko som ikke s ut som herresko for frste gang. De har til og med slyfe! N er jeg helt ballerinafrelst, og ettersom mine begynner bli temmelig slitt, s er det p tide med et par nye. Jeg elsker stroppen bak p disse, og litt spiss front er egentlig aldri feil.

-
Last summer I wore flats that didn't look like men's shoes for the very first time. They even had a bow! Now I'm hooked on ballerinas, and since mine are heading in for their last days, it's time to look for a new pair. I love the strap on these, and a pointy shoe is never wrong. Even if it's a ballerina.

Outfit | All black and lace

Skjrt er definitivt p vei til bli et fast plagg i vr- og sommeruniformen min. Jeg reagerer rett og slett p strikken som er p mammabuksene (!), s her gr det i bukser som er skikkelig lave p livet, skjrt og myke shortser.

Og ikke srlig overraskende gr det i svart p svart. Selv om det nrmer seg sommer. Noen andre som ikke har kastet seg over sommerfargene enda, eller er det bare jeg som er ei skikkelig pyse? Heldigvis finnes det blonder. Perfekt til myke opp antrekk som dette!

-
Skirts are definitely becoming part of my summer uniform. I'm actually allergic to the stretch band on the maternity pants (I mean, come on!), so I'm all about really low waisted jeans, skirts and soft shorts these days.

And, not surprisingly, I still go for all black. Even though it's spring. Anyone else out there not too keen to start wearing summer colours yet, or is it just me being a sissu? Luckily there's lace. Perfect to soften outfits like this!

Instalately


Dette er virkelig sommeren hvor alt skal skje p en gang! En gang mot slutten av sommeren kommer babygutten vr, men fr det flytter vi. Det har ikke vrt den letteste avgjrelsen, men n gleder vi oss skikkelig. Vi vender nemlig nesene tilbake til hjembyen vr, lesund! Det er helt vilt tenke p og det er s mye jeg kommer til savne med Oslo. Likevel er jeg sikker p at det kommer til bli fantastisk endelig vre nrmere familien igjen. I tillegg skal det bli skikkelig deilig med hus og hage! Juhu!

Det blir ogs temmelig store forandringer p bloggen i lpet av sommeren og jeg bare gleder meg til ha dere med p alt, bde her og p Instagram. Instagram blir nok en liten reserveblogg nr flyttingen str p som verst tenker jeg. Flg meg p @sarastrandno!

-
This is like the summer when everything is happening all at once! In the end of the summer our little baby boy will arrive, but before that we're moving. It hasn't been an easy decision, but now we can't wait. Because we're actually heading back to our hometown, lesund! It's crazy to think about and there's so much I'm going to miss about Oslo. Still I'm sure it's going to be amazing to be near our families again. And of course to finally switch out the apartment with a house!

There's also going to be some big changes for the blog and I can't wait to have you with me in all of this, both here and on Instagram. I guess Instagram will be my blog number two when we're to busy moving. Follow me at @sarastrandno.

Beauty tip for the nails



Jeg har aldri ftt s trr hud etter en sydentur, som etter denne turen her. Det er helt dryt! Heldigvis har jeg utstyrt meg med en skikkelig fet krem til kroppen fra Kremfresh (til dere andre gravide: den forebygger strekkmerker ogs). Uten den vet jeg ikke hva jeg skulle gjort alts. Det er ingenting annet som trenger godt nok inn virker det som.

Hendene, neglene og omrdet rundt neglene er ikke noe srlig bedre en resten av skrotten, men jeg kjpte med denne nydelige lille krukken fra Dior p flyplassen etter ha lest om den p bloggen til Elin Kling. Den er utrolig deilig! Ogs lukter den helt nydelig. Jeg smrer fingertuppene rett fr jeg legger meg, s er de myke og gode nr jeg vkner.

-
I've never had such dry skin after a trip to the south like this before. It's crazy! Luckily I have a super rich body butter that really works. Just have to use it to times a day.

My hands and nails are really dry too, but I bought this cute little jar from Dior at the airport after reading about it over at Eling Kling's blog. It's so good! Smells amazing too. I apply it on my finger tips before going to bed and they're super soft in the morning! Today's little beauty tips for dry summer fingers.

Outfit | Classic

Innlegget er skrevet i samarbeid med Toni&Guy.

Jeg ender alltid opp med klassikerne mine nr jeg er p ferie. Dette antrekket er et veldig godt eksempel p det. Favorittkjolen fra H&M kombinert med ballerinas, favorittvesken, Ray-Bans og bikerjakke. Jeg bruker mye mindre tid p klr og tilbehr, s det er greit vite at de plaggene som alltid funker er med i kofferten,

Det samme gjelder hr. Snn har jeg sett ut stort sett hver dag her, og det er s deilig ha en frisyre som alltid funker. Superenkel, men klasssisk og elegant, og ikke minst veldig praktisk, i varmen. Produktene jeg har brukt ser du under. De er fra den siste kolleksjonen til Toni&Guy og er fantastiske, spesielt her i varmen. For jeg fr virkelig tidenes mest frizzy hr av sol, klor og saltvann!



Du fr kjpt Toni&Guy hos VITA, Boots og utvalgte H&M-butikker.

Sunglasses for brekfast

Det er ikke noe problem karre seg ut av senga grytidlig p morgenen nr det er solbriller og kos med Stylemag og Krogh Optikk som str p frokostmenyen. For er det en ting jeg synes er skikkelig gy p tilbehrsfronten, s er det solbriller. Og selv om jeg ofte ender opp med et par klassikere fra Ray-Ban, s er det nr det kommer til solbriller at jeg har de mest crazy fargene og fasongene garderoben.

Jeg har imidlertid hatt en godt ye for Prada en stund, og det er definitivt disse som blir med til Lanzarote p lrdag. Ingenting er som et par kule solbriller, sommerkjole og deilig lesestoff p stranden!

-
It's no problem getting out of bed early in the morning when it's eyewear and breakfast with Stylemag and Krogh Optikk on the menu. Because if there's one thing I think is fun when it comes to accessories, it's sunglasses. And even though I often end up with a pair classics from Ray-Ban, it's when it comes to sunglasses I have the most crazy colours and shapes in my wardrobe.

However, I've been watching the sunglasses from Prada for a while, and it's definitely the one on the picture that comes along to Lanzarote this Saturday. There's nothing like a pair of cool sunnies, a summer dress and magazines on the beach!

Outfit | Ice blue

Her om dagen var jeg innom Cathrine Hammels butikk her i Oslo, og denne isbl fargen som flere av de nye plaggene har ftt er bare helt nydelig. Jeg glemmer liksom lys bltt, men det er en utrolig deilig farge. Spesielt n nr det gr mot vr og man endelig fr litt farge p huden igjen. Og en ekstra gy farge sprite opp med morsomt tilbehr!

-
The other day I stopped by Cathrine Hammel's store here in Oslo, and this ice blue colour from the new collection is just gorgeous. I tend to forget ligh blue, men it's truly a delicious colour. Especially when the days are lighter and you finally get a little tan again. Also the perfect shade to spice up with fun accessories!

Heels for the pregnant

Man skal jo tenke litt ekstra p fotty nr man brer et ekstra menneske p magen, s jeg skal nok ikke trippe rundt i disse hver dag. Likevel er det et perfekt alternativ nr man har lyst pynte seg litt, men ikke orker altfor hye hler. Jeg dro rett hjem bestilte dem etter at jeg s dem p Marie, og kunne ikke vrt mer fornyd. Hlen er jo ikke mer enn 5 cm!

-
You're supposed to be a bit careful when it comes to footwear while carrying around another person, so I won't be running around in these every day. Still it's the perfect alternative when you feel like dressing up a little, but can't take high heels. I went straight home to order them after seeing them on Marie, and I couldn't be happier. I mean, the heel is only 5 centimeters!

Outfit | Ripped jeans and knit

Wearing jeans and sweater from Gina Tricot, ballerinas fromZara,jacket fromObjectand sunglasses from Ray-Ban.

Jeg nyter siste dagene med vanlige jeans, for n begynner det virkelig stramme alts. Heldigvis funker det fortsatt med jeans som er veldig lave p livet. Veldig greit siden min favoritt om dagen er varme gensere, jeans og pne sko. Inntil i dag, da det plutselig er sn igjen (!).

-
I'm enjoying my last days in regular jeans, because it's getting tighter. Luckily I can still wear my low waist jeans. Love that since my favourite these days are warm sweaters, jeans and open shoes. Well, until today, because it's actually snowing again (!).

Morning coffee

Er det en ting jeg er glad jeg ikke blir kvalm av til tross for graviditeten, s er det kaffe. Dagen har liksom ikke begynt ordentlig uten en varm kopp. Vanligvis gr det i traktekaffe, men her om dagen fikk jeg teste et par nye smaker fra Nescaf som var overraskende gode, s i dag ble det Caf Vanilla. Min favoritt s langt! Jeg er generelt veldig glad kaffe som er tilsatt litt smak (stjunkie), og det skummet er jo himmelsk.

Hvis dere vil smake, s husk bli med i konkurransen om en tur til New York. Bare stem p din favoritt, s er du med i trekningen om en tur for to og flere andre fine premier.

-
If there's one thing I'm glad I don't feel sick of even though I'm pregnant, it's coffee. I mean, the day doesn't really start until you've had a warm mug. The other day I recieved some new flavours from Nescaf that tastes surprisingly good, so today I went for Caf Vanilla. My favourite so far! I'm generally a big fan of adding flavours to coffee (everything sweet), and that creamy frothy thing they got going on is amazing. Noen av dere som har smakt dem?

If you give it a try, remember to enter the contest where you can win a trip to New York. Simply vote for your favourite, and you're in.

Outfit | The brunette is back

Wearing jeans fromDiesel, ballerinas from Zara,sweater and belt fromH&M, coat from Benettonand bag from Decadent.

Det er s ufattelig deilig med vr i luften! Jeg skal innrmme at ballerinas var en bitteliten tanke kaldt, men det var absolutt verdt det. Det er noe helt spesielt med den flelsen man fr frste dag man kan traske p trr asfalt i pne sko alts. I tillegg fikk jeg vifte litt med det nye hret! Bde kortere og mrkere, ikke akkurat veien jeg pleier g nr det nrmer seg sommer, men jeg liker det. Superfrisren min kan dere finne ut mer om her.

-
It's spring in the air and I love it! I'll have to admit that ballerinas was a tiny bit cold, but it was so worth it. There's something special with that feeling you get the first time to walk on dry streets with open shoes. I also got to show off my new hair. Both shorter and darker, not exactly the direction I usually go before summer, but I like it.

Me time at Spagetti

Hurra, jeg er brunette igjen! I dag var jeg nemlig innom Slve, favorittfrisr nummer 1. Han har byttet salong siden sist jeg var hos han (jeg fulgte selvflgelig etter), s i dag var jeg hos Spagetti i Bogstadveien for frste gang. Salongen var en skikkelig positiv overraskelse, og jeg gleder meg til neste gang allerede! Jeg har jo ikke vrt hos frisren p over nesten fire mneder i frykt for kaste opp i frisrstolen. Den rakkeren i magen alts! Resultatet fr dere se i morgen, men det ligger en liten sniktitt p Instagram allerede.

For bestille time med Slve kan dere klikke her eller ringe salongen p 22 46 38 94.

-
I'm a brunette again! Today I visited Slve, my hairdressen number one. He's switched salons since my last visit (I followed of course), so today I visited Spaggeti in Bogstadveien for the first time. The salon was a really nice surprise and I had just a good time. I mean, it's been almost four months because of my fear of throwing up in the chair. This little baby like to cause a little drama! Anyway, you can see the result tomorrow, but there's a sneak peek on Instagram already.

To order an appointment with Slve, you can click here or call +4722 46 38 94

Tiny favourites

En leser tipset meg om legge smykkene mine ved siden av tannkosten eller ett eller annet som jeg bruker hver dag. Jeg glemmer nemlig ta de p meg. Og vet dere hva? Det funker! N har jeg p meg ringer hver dag, og favorittene er disse. Den rosa er fra Asos, og resten er fra The Hatters.

-
One of my readers said I should put my jewelry next to my toothbrush or something else that I use every day. You see, I forget to put it on. And you know what? It works! Now I'm wearing rings every day, and my favourites are these tiny ones. The pink one is from Asos, and the rest is from The Hatters.

Outfit | Comme ci comme a

Photo/Guri Heli.
Wearing jeans from Diesel, boots from Aldo,shirt fromMats Nrgaard, sweater fromLindex, trench from Selected Femme,bag fromJosephand sunglasses from Ray-Ban.

Hva jeg gjr nr jeg ikke skal til Paris under moteuken? Skaffer meg en genser med franske ord, bare for minne meg selv p det en gang ekstra eller to. For vre helt rlig frister det faktisk ikke s veldig denne gangen. Jeg ser for meg at jeg hadde endt opp med hodet i en spypose midt i kaoset. But then again, Paris is never a bad idea.

Uansett, skjorte og collegegenser er en look jeg aldri gr lei og det funker kjempefint med den lille magen ogs (enn s lenge).

-
What I do when I'm not going to Paris for fashion week? Get a hold of a sweater with french words, just to remind myself that I'm not going. But to be honest, I doesn't really feel to bad. I would probably end up with my face vomiting in a bag in the middle of all the chaos anyway. But then again, Paris is never a bad idea.

Anyway, shirt and a sweater on top is one of my favourite combos. I never get tired of it and it works great with my little baby bump too, we'll see how long that will last.

My maternity essentials

Det er virkelige ikke noe poeng investere altfor mye i klr som skal brukes under graviditeten. Det er jo tross alt bare snakk om noen mneder. Likevel er det noen ting jeg har innsett at jeg liker ekstra godt ha i skapet mens magen vokser. Man fler seg gjerne litt shabby til tider, og da er det greit vite at man har noen plagg som funker uansett dagsform.

MATERNITY JEANS -This one is a must. The only jeans that fit me right now are my Diesel Skinzee jeans because of it's low waist. So I'm looking for maternity jeans as we speak. I lived in mine during my last pregnacy and it's so comfortable with the stretchy fabric over the belly.

TIGHT DRESSES -As I've said before, I think tight tops is the best way to go when you're pregnant. At least when you're starting to get really big. Dresses are awesome. A dress and tights and you're ready to go. Super easy!

SNEAKERS - Good footwear is really important. I know my back will thank me for not wearing too much heels! Once in a while is fun as long as you can walk, but I'm really glad I have a pair of new Adidas sneakers for my heaviest months.

FEMININE DETAILS -So I usually go for oversized and boyish items, but now I suddently feel like wearing more feminine pieces. Today I actually bought a sequin skirt (!). But it's really nice to just dress up and feel nice.

BASIC T-SHIRTS-T-shirt and jeans is a super combo, when you're pregnant too. I like to style it with short jackets or blazers when the belly gets really big.

-
There's no point in buying too much clothes during the pregnacy. I mean, you're only going to need it for a few months. Still, there's a few essential pieces that I've learned to appreciate a lot. You often feel a bit shabby and tired, so it's really nice to have some pieces what works no mather what.

Outfit | Casual Saturday stroll

Wearing rings from WeThe Hatters, jeans from Diesel, boots from Also,dress from H&M, jacket from Lindexand bag from Decadent.

Denne helgen har vi besk av svigerfar og svigersstrene mine, og da er selvflgelig bylrdag obligatorisk. I alle fall for oss jentene! S koselig bare tusle rundt i butikker og p kaf.

Jeg har gtt til innkjp av mine frste mammakjoler ogs. De er egentlig bare fra den vanlige kolleksjonen til H&M, men helt perfekte til voksende mager. S tidlig s denne magen spratt ut, s trengte jeg veldig plutselig er par litt strammere og mer magevennlige plagg. Vanligvis gr jeg alltid for oversized, men jeg synes stramme overdeler er det absolutt fineste til gravide mager.

-
We're having my father in law and my sisters in law here this weekend, and a Saturday stroll downtown is a must. At least for the girls. It's so nice to just walk around in stores and cafes.

Also I've purchased my first maternity dresses. They're really just from the regular H&M collection, but they're perfect for growing bellies. And since this one popped it much sooner than he last one, I suddently felt the need for tighter pieces immidietly. Usually I go for oversized pieces, but I think tight tops is the best for pregnant bellies.

Winter fresh

Jeg liker helt forskjellige lukter p vinteren, enn p sommeren. Og disse to fra norske Alexander Sprekenhus er nye favoritter etter bare en uke i baderomshyllen. Den dusjspen med kamomille er virkelig helt fantastisk deilig. Jeg har hatt lyst teste produkter fra Sprekenhus lenge, for jeg har hrt s mye bra, s det var ekstra gy endelig f pne disse flaskene. Tid for helg og ekstra lange dusjer!

I like completely different scents during winter, than during summer. And these two from the Norwegian brand Alexander Sprekenhus is on my favourite list after only one week in the bathroom shelf. That body wash with chamomille is truly amazing. I've been wanting to try some products from Sprekenhus a long time, since I've heard a lot of promising stuff, so it was extra fun to finally open these bottles. Time for weekend and extra long showers!

Wouldn't mind #20

Er det en ting jeg aldri fr nok av, s er det varme gensere. Jeg har en svart fluffy en, men den har jeg fjernet nupper p s mange ganger at jeg er sikker p det snart er hull i den. Den p bildet er ikke akkurat klassisk, men fy sren s fin. Skulle gjerne gjemt den bittelille bollemagen som har begynt snike seg frem, inni den der.

If there's one thing I'll never get enough of, it's warm sweaters. I have one black fluffy one, but I've been removing so many knobs that I'm sure it will be a hole in it any day now. The one on the picture isn't exactly classy, but my God it's nice. I would love to hide my tiny baby bump (actually starting to show) inside this one.

Endelig kan jeg si det! For det er ikke uten grunn at det har vrt litt roligere p bloggen i det siste. Jeg er gravid og den lille rakkeren i magen har virkelig likt lage kvalme. De siste mnedene har jeg ftt muligheten til studere dosklen litt for godt, men n har det heldigvis begynt gi seg. I dag var vi p ultralyd ogs og det er s deilig endelig kunne fortelle det! Mina har allerede tegnet tegning til minien som er p vei og det skal bli skikkelig spennende g fra vre tre, til bli fire!

Det er ikke s lett se det enda, men jeg lover fortsette legge ut antrekksbilder. Bollemage eller ei. Dette bli gy!

Finally I can tell you! Because the reason for the lazy blogging is a baby on board. The little one has been a big fan of causing nausea, so the last couple months I've had the opportunity to get to know the toilet a bit too well. Today we took the first ultrasound too and it's feels so good to be able to share the news. Mina just finished the first painting for the mini too and we're so excited to go from three to four!

You probably can't tell yet, but I promise to keep posting outfit photos. Huge or not. This is going to be fun!

Beauty tip

Jeg m bare tipse dere om denne primeren. Det har serist aldri vrt s lett sminke seg som nr jeg legger denne frst. Jeg s at den hadde ftt veldig mye positiv omtale, men har liksom aldri flt noe behov for primer. N er det imidlertid ingen vei tilbake. Dette er en stayer i sminkevesken!

I just have to share this primer with you. Seriously, it's so easy to apply the other makeup after putting this one on. I noticed it had a lot of positive reviews, but I've never felt the need for primers. Now however, there won't be a day without it.
