Sneak peek on my day

Today I wore my camel dress from Asos, bag from Armani Jeans, my fuzzy sweater from H&M, sunglasses from Giorgio Armani and rose lips from Yves Rocher

I ate a delicious breakfast over at my friend Kaja's house

Spent the whole day at school, but on my way home I tried this amazing cardigan from H&M's trend apartment. Bought some reeally nice bracelets to. Can't wait to show you!

I also spotted this great print at Weekday. Inspired by Stella McCartney?

Budget loafers

Jeg kunne nesten ikke la vre tipse dere om disse. Vet jo at flere av dere har jaktet p noe lignende. Maskuline lakksko med dusk alts! Ogs bare 228 kroner inkludert frakt. Ebay er tingen.

-

I couldn't help tipsing you about these. I know many of you have been looking for something similar. Masculine patent shoes with tassel that is! And just 228 NOK including shipping. Ebay is the shit!

Wants

1. Hope 2. Chanel 3. 3.1 Phillip Lim 4. Stella McCartney

Jeg leter fortsatt etter de perfekte maskuline skoene. Disse skulle jo bli med meg hjem fra COS i Berlin, men viste seg vre utsolgt i strrelsen min. S rop ut om dere vet om noen fine!

-

I'm still looking for the perfect masculine shoes. I was sure that these were coming home with me from COS, but unfortunately my size were sold out. So shout out if you see some nice alternatives!

Leather pants from Bik Bok, blazer and turtleneck from H&M, second hand sweater, bag from Zara and sunglasses from Gucci.

Det er fredag og jeg er frisk som en fisk!

It's Friday and I've got rid of my cold!

Styleby

Styleby kunne ikke kommet p et bedre tidspunkt. Jeg er fortsatt ikke i form og vil aller helst bare sitte helt i ro. Selvflgelig med papir, nesespray, varm drikke og lett underholdning i umiddelbar nrhet. Men Styleby levde i alle fall opp til forventningene, med utrolig inspirerende styling. Veldig forskjellig fra det man ser i norske motemagasiner. Og det er jo litt gy!

-

Styleby couldn't arrive on a more appropriate time. I'm still ill and I really just want to sit. With paper, nose spray, warm drinks and entertainment in reach of course. But Styleby didn't disappoint and had very inspiring styling. Very different from what you can see in Norwegian fashion magazines at least. And that's fun!

Lookbooks & chain bracelets

Endelig! Med rde nesevinger og blankt snrr tittende ut av neseborene gikk jeg innom Bik Bok i hp om at de endelig hadde ftt inn armbndene som jeg har ventet p. Og ikke bare hadde de ftt inn armbndene, jeg fant en skinnbukse som passet! S n er det et slvt, men happy tryne som blar gjennom lookbooks fra presseuken. Slett ikke verst.

-

Finally! With a red nose and shiny snot peeking out of my nose I went to see if the bracelets that I've been waiting for had arrived. Not only did I find the bracelets, I also found a pair of leather pants that fitted! So now it's a dull but happy face that are looking trough lookbooks from press week. Not bad at all.

Shoes from Sixtyseven, leather skirt from Selected Femme, bag from Zara, sweater and old jacket from H&M, second hand t-shirt and scarf from Acne.

Grvrsdager er skikkelig koselig av og til. N er jeg kjempeklar for siste episode av Hung, masse kakao og enda mer krem. En skikkelig kosekveld med andre ord. Hper dere ogs koser dere!

-

Rainy days are so nice some times. Now I'm ready for the last episode of hung, a lot of cocoa and even more cream. A really cosy evening in other words. Hope you guys are enjoying yourself too!

Jeg elsker skoene og veskene fra Acnes vr/sommerkolleksjon! Kanskje ikke s rart med tanke p at jeg har fullstendig dilla p dusker og grovt skinn. Og dusker sammen med litt bltt skimmer er jo bare kjempekult! Noen andre som tenker Céline nr de ser de siste veskene der forresten?

-

I love these shoes and bags from Acne's spring/summer collection! Maybe not so weird when I have a huge crush on tassels and rough leather. And tassels mixed with a little blue shimmer is just insanely cool! Anyone else thinking Céline when they see those last bags btw?

Noe lysebltt og loddent hoppet plutselig rett inn p nskelista. En utrolig st genser fra Alexa Chung for Madwell. I tillegg nsker jeg at hret mitt endelig skal ha ndd denne lengden rundt nyttr en gang. Hvis ikke er det p tide med drastiske tiltak!

-

Something light blue and fuzzy jumped right into my wishlist. A really cute sweater from Alexa Chung for Madwell. Also I'm wishing for my hair to finally have reached this lenght by new year. If not it's time to get drastical!

Everyday makeup

Jeg har ftt flere sprsml om hverdagssminken, s jeg dristet meg til en tredje videoblogg! Dessverre blir det utrolig drlig kvalitet med en gang jeg laster den opp p YouTube.

-

I've got several questions about my everyday makeup, so that resulted in my third video blog! Unfortunately the quality turns really bad the minute I upload the movie to YouTube.

Tenk jobbe i slike omgivelser hver dag. Som en ekte nysgjerrigper, elsker jeg f snoke p arbeidsplassen, oppi vesken og inn i garderoben til flotte moteinteresserte jenter.

Imagine working in this enviroment every day. Curious as I am, I love peeking in a great fashionista's work place, bag ord wardrobes. 

The winter jacket

1. Nowhere, 1499,- 2. Cheap Monday, 1200,- 3. Modstrm, 1795,- 4. Romwe, 424,- 5. Baum und Pferdgarten, 1600,- 6. Baum und Pferdgarten, 1800,-

Vinterjakkejakt er nesten like vanskelig som vinterskojakt. En vinterjakke for oss nordmenn skal jo gjerne tle 20- samtidig som den skal vre kul og passe til alle antrekk. Da de frreste har rd til kjpe mange vinterjakker i lpet av en sesong. Over ser dere i alle fall mine favoritter. Som dere ser er jeg veldig glad i jakker uten krage. Hper dette var til hjelp, Malin.

-

Finding the winter jacket is almost as hard as finding winter shoes. A winter jacket for us Norwegians should keep us warm in -20 and also be cool and fit every outfit. Because most people can't afford buying several winter jackets during one season. You can see my favorites. As you can see I'm a big fan of jackets with no collar. Hope this was helpful, Malin.

Yesterday

We started the day at wonderful Patriksson. Amazing colours and patterns from Designers Remix

Ingrid, me, Linn and Linn's friend

Mmm

Absolutely love these shoes from By Malene Birger. You can see more from the collection at Hilde's blog.

So happy with my new necklace from Glitter

I also visited Kaare Lund and now I can't get these gorgeous sandals from Won Hundred out of my head

Sweet fabrics and nice details from Whyred

Whyred again. Love it!

We ended press week at Spalt. Can't wait to try the pink oxfords from Vagabond

Jeg hadde en kjempekoselig avslutning p presseuka sammen med Marie og Hilde i gr. Vi var innom flere byrer og skjemte bort bde yne, smakslker og smilebnd. Avsluttet det hele med en supergy Moods of Norway kolleksjonslansering, s n er det duket for en skikkelig hvilefredag.

-

I had a great time at the last day of press week with Marie and Hilde yesterday. We visited several agencies and spoiled both eyes, taste buds and smile lines. The day ended with a super fun Moods of Norway collection lunch, so no I'm all in for a relaxing Friday.

Sko fra Sixtyseven, skjrt fra Selected Femme, genser og jakke fra H&M, smykke fra Glitter og veske fra Zara.

Fuzzy + cut out

Det var med tungt hjerte at jeg tuslet inn p Lindex og leverte tilbake det fine antrekket mitt. Dessverre raknet hele to smmer p genseren og en knapp lsnet p buksen. Og da var det ikke srlig fristende takke ja til nye plagg. Men turen gikk videre til H&M og n er jeg en fuzzy genser og et Acne-inspirert skjrt rikere. Love it! Dere fr se det p i morgen.

-

I returned my great outfit at Lindex with a heavy heart today. Unfortunately two seams on the sweater were broken and the trousers lost the button. Not very tempting with new pieces after that disaster. But I went over to H&M and now I'm one fuzzy sweater and one Acne inspired skirt richer. Love it! You'll see it on tomorrow. 

H&M flowers

Gleeder meg til se nrmere p dette mnsteret nr det blir tilgjengelig p H&M. Hello Jil Sander!

-

Can't wait to take a closer look on this pattern when it's available at H&M. Hello Jil Sander!

Sko fra Din Sko, bukse og genser fra Lindex (Affordable Luxury) og veske fra Armani Jeans.

Det fles ut som jeg har trasket rundt i pysjamas hele dagen. Utrolig deilig! Skoene derimot, ikke srlig pysjamasaktig.

Polhem PR

Not a big fan of sushi, but these scampies were delicious

Lene and Marie

Reeeally cool sandals from Samse

Hilde

Samse again. Beautiful knit!

I dag startet presseuken og frste stopp var Polhem PR. De kunne by p en herlig miks av sommerkolleksjoner, mat, drikke og mennesker. Og det er nettopp det presseeuka er. En superkoselig og gy uke stappet med spennende kolleksjoner, mennesker, mat og drikke. Gleder meg masse til fortsettelsen. Selv om jeg har en skoleoppgave som gjr at jeg ikke rekker alt. Men travle dager er gode dager!

-

Press week started today and Polhem PR was my first stopp. They offered a great mix of summer collections, food, drinks and people. And that's exactly what press week is. A cosy and fun week full of exciting collections, people, food and drinks. I can't wait until the next stop. Although I have a school assignment that I have to put first. But busy days are good days!

Colour splash

Drlig hrdag og grtt vr resulterte et eneste stort fargesplash. Humret mitt steg flere hakk idet jeg satte hatten p hodet!

-

A bad hair day and grey weather resulted in one big colour splash. A much better mood the minute I putted on my hat!

Comfortable Luxury

Ingenting er som gaver p en helt vanlig mandag. Takket vre den ste kjresten min kan jeg starte presseuken i dette settet fra Lindex' Affordable Luxury. Elegant, komfortabelt og enkelt. Helt grei kombinasjon med andre ord! Dere skal f se det p i morgen, men de ekstra nysgjerrige kan jo ta en titt p Emma.

-

Nothing is like gifts on a random Monday. Thanks to my sweet boyfriend I can start press week in this set from Lindex' Affordable Luxury. Elegant, comfortable and minimal. A perfect combination in other words! You'll get a closer look tomorrow, but the very curious ones can take a look at Emma.

My birthday wish list

1. Baum und Pferdgarten 2. Romwe 3.Triwa Nevil 4. Zara 5. Marc by Marc Jacobs 6. Lindex Afordable Luxury 7. Lindex Afordable Luxury

N er det bare litt over en mned til jeg har bursdag. Og siden kjresten krever konkrete nsker for i det hele tatt kjpe noe bursdagsgave, s kom jeg frem til at en god gammeldags nskeliste er det eneste riktige. Her er alts noe av det jeg nsker meg.

-

My birthday is coming up in a little over a month. And since my boyfriend requires very concrete suggestions (or he won't give me any gift at all), I realized that a good old fashion wish list is a good idea. So here's some of the things that I wish for.

Featured in STREETSTYLE

N har jeg vrt i hele to norske magasiner og det fles utrolig rart. Hvordan skal jeg forklare denne galskapen til barnebarna? Det er i alle fall skikkelig gy og jeg setter kjempestor pris p at jeg fr oppleve det. Takk til superflinke jenter fra Streetstyle! Vil dere lese intervjuet i tillegg til mange andre spennende bloggnyheter, s lp og kjp!

-

So now I've been featured in two Norwegian magazines and that feel really weird. How am I supposed to explain this madness to my grand children? Well, it's so much fun and I really appreciate this experience. Thanks to the skilled girls from Streetstyle! If you want to read the interview and a lot of other exciting blog news, go buy it!

My day

One of those days when you find nothing to wear and end up with jeans and a white tee.

Not all that satisfied with the boring outfit.

A good breakfast is underrated.

Picked up the second issue of STREETSTYLE on my way to school. Can't wait to show you my feature.

Feeling the fall under my feet.

Checked out Elin Kling's Nowhere, that launched today. A liittle bit disappointed to be honest.

Loving this color on my nails (Yves Rocher, Aubergine). And Polliani's gorgeous bags.

Bruno Pieters + Weekday

Via. Vanillascented & Weekday

Da vet dere hvor jeg skal p fredag. Det er ikke ofte jeg lar meg begeistre av denne typen samarbeid, men se p plaggene da. Skulle ikke tro at dette blir tilgjengelig i en kjedebutikk. De to siste + cardigan er herre, men skal absolutt prves likevel.

-

So now you know where I'm going on Friday. It's not very often that I get excited over this kind of collaborations, but look at these pieces. Wouldn't think that this will be available in a chain store.  The two last items + the cardigan is for men, but I'm definitely trying it anyway. 

The bold business case

Pics. Asos Magazine.

Jeg falt pladask for denne. Fr man plass til en liten datamaskin i den mon tro? Jeg har i alle fall skrevet meg opp p maillisten og venter i spenning til den blir tilgjengelig i nettbutikken. Og jeg kommer serist aldri til glemme det armbndet fra Maison Martin Margiela p bilde 4. Vet ikke hvor lenge det har vrt p nskelisten, men n finner jeg det ingen steder. Any ideas?

-

I totally fell for this one. And I'm hoping that it's possible to get a small computer in there. I signed the mail list and will wait in excitement until it's available online. And I seriously can't get over that bracelet from Maison Martin Margiela on picture 4. I don't know how long it's been on my wishlist, but now I can't find it anywhere. Any ideas?

Yves Rocher Couleurs Nature

Jeg er s heldig f teste produkter fra Yves Rocher og i frste omgang har jeg testet et par leppestifter. Leppestift er egentlig ikke helt mi greie. Da jeg har en tendens til grise det utover ganske umiddelbart. Greia med leppestiftene fra Couleurs Nature er at de er fuktighetsgivende og fles mer ut som en lypsyl. Helt klart et stort pluss for min del. I tillegg synes jeg de var akkurat passe glossy og veldig lette pfre. Fargene er utrolige klare og den rde er virkelig den mest delikate rde leppestiften jeg har prvd. Men minus for at de lukter veldig leppestift.

-

I get to test products from Yves Rocher and I feel so lucky. First I've testet a couple of lipsticks. Lipsticks it's not really my thing because I tend to make a mess of it right away. The thing about the lipsticks from Couleurs Nature is that they're moisturizing and feels more like lip balm. Definitely a big plus for me. Also I think they have just the right amount of shine and they're very easy to apply. The colors are very clear and the red one is really the most delicate red lipstick I've ever tried. But a minus for smelling too much like that classic lipstick scent.

New in

Asos hadde 50% p utvalgte varer i 48 timer og da kunne jeg ikke la vre klikke hjem denne genseren. Det blir jo s mye lettere nr man slipper tenke p moms og alt det der. Veldig uvant med rdt igjen merker jeg, men forandring er flott!

-

Asos offered 50% on selected items for 48 hours and I just had to order this sweater. It's just so much easier when you don't have to worry about taxes and all that. Very weird to wear red again, but change is good!

Zara TRF

Jeg elsker disse to bildene fra september-lookbooken til Zara TRF. De slr faktisk bildene til Zara Woman som jeg vanligvis er veldig fan av. Det er rett og slett hsten beskrevet med klr.

-

I love these two photos from Zara TRF's September lookbook. Actually they beat the pictures from Zara Woman. The ones I'm usually a big fan of. It's fall described with clothes.

Bukse fra COS, vintage t-skjorte, gammel jakke, clutch fra ASOS og belte fra H&M.

Jeg prvde meg p en ny vri i dag. Favorittbeltet mitt som smykke. Svigersstrene rister p hodet, men jeg synes det var bde gy og kult.

-

I tried something new today. My favourite belt as a necklace. My sisters in law are shaking their heads, but I think it was both fun and cool.

Oversized, grovt og feminint. Ganske s perfekt med andre ord. Jeg likte ogs sokkene i sandalene overraskende godt, men tror jeg lar den ideen bli igjen p catwalken.

-

Oversized, coarse and feminin. Quite perfect in other word. I also liked those socks in the sandals, but I think I'll let that idea stay on the catwalk.

Jeg er egentlig ikke sur alts. Selv om det ser veldig snn ut. Hehe. Skremmende at dette er det blideste bildet fr kameraet gikk tom for batteri.

-

I'm actually not mad, guys. Although it sure looks that way. Hehe. Not good that this is the happiest picture before my camera went out of battery.
