For my birthday

Det er s gy med bursdag alts! Spesielt etter at facebook kom. Jeg har sikkert sjekka profilen en gang i timen fordi det er s koselig lese veggmeldingene. Men i tillegg til koselige hilsener har jeg alts ftt kjempefine gaver. Kan jammen ikke klage.

-

Birthday is so fun! Especially after facebook arrived. I've checken my profile like every hour because I enjoy reading the posts. But I got really nice gifts too. Sure can't complain.

When it's cold outside

Just realized that I love everything that Columbine puts together.

Got this invitation from Gina Tricot the other day, so fun with physical invitations once in a while.

Loving this tea from Yogi Tea.

Det er s deilig sitte inne i varmen nr vinden uler utenfor. Spesielt nr man har nyeste utgave av Styleby og te.

-

It's so nice to sit inside when the wind is howling outside. Especially if you have the last issue of Style and tea.

Byruken er over og jeg er klar for byrfest i ny blomsterbukse. God helg, dere!

-

The agency week at my school is over and I'm ready for party in my new flower trousers. Have a nice weekend, guys! 

H&M fitting room

Kolleksjonen Monochrome er tilgjengelig i 20 H&M-butikker verden over. Og H&M i Karl Johan er en av de heldige butikken som har ftt den inn. Jeg mtte selvflgelig stikke innom en tur, men endte opp med alt annet enn ting fra kolleksjonen.

-

The Monochrome collection is available in 20 H&M stores on word basis. And H&M in Karl Johan is one of the lucky stores to house it. I had to stop buy to check it out, but ended up with only buying stuff that wasn't from the collection. 

Colour

Via. Columbine Smille

Jeg nsker meg kule farger som kler hstmrket. Altfor mye svart og pudder om dagen!

-

I wish for some cool colours that fits the fall. Way too much black and powder these days!

Featured on Grazia.it

Det er s gy se seg selv p andre nettsteder at det grenser til kvalmt. Dere kan se og lese artikkelen her, men den er p italiensk. Google translate for spesielt interesserte med andre ord.

-

It's so much fun to see pictures of yourself on other web sites that it's almost sickening. You can read the article here, but it's in italian. So google translate if you're that curious.  

Pretty please

Jeg kvitta meg med store mengder slev nr jeg sjekket nyhetene til Asos i dag. De solbrillene kommer til bli liggende p netthinna en stund. Perfekt tilbehr de dagene man fler seg litt for alvorlig i tyet.

-

I got rid of a huge amount of drool when I checked out Asos' news today. I'll never forget those sunglasses, that's for sure. A perfect fashion accessory if you feel that your outfit is a bit too serious.

Lucy Chadwick for Zara

Jeg er forelsket i denne filmen. I dama, i interiret hennes og i den burgunder strikkegenseren. Utrolig inspirerende og fin liten film!

-

I'm in love with this movie. In the women, in her interior and in the burgundy sweater. A really inspiring and beautiful little movie! 

Jenny Skavlan for Bik Bok

Jeg dro innom Bik Bok p vei hjem og til tross for fullstendig kaos fikk jeg snappet til meg en skinnkrage (takket vre Ane) og et trkle. Store deler av kolleksjonen blir et par hakk for st for min del, men skinnkragen er helt r. Og trklet havner p hodet! Noen av dere som har vrt p Pre-launch i dag?

-

I stopped by Bik Bok on my way home and although it was really caotic I got my hands on a leather collar (thanks to Ane) and a shawl. A lot of the collection is a but too cute for my taste, but the leather collar rocks. And the shawl goes on the head!

Flower power

Blomstertrykkene er p vei ut i butikkene og trenden kommer definitivt til prege sommeren 2012. I alle fall min. Drmmen er selvflgelig en skjorte fra Stella McCartney, men jeg satser p finne noen kule trykk i kjedebutikkene etterhvert. Jeg s i alle fall litt blomster i Zaras siste lookbook. Klare for store blomster fra topp til t?

-

The flower prints are hitting the stores and the trend is definitely going to set it's mark on the summer of 2012. At least mine. My dream is to get a hold of a shirt from Stella McCartnet, but I'm counting on the high street stores to make some cool prints. At least Zara's latest lookbook shows some flowers. Ready for big flowers from top to toe?

Too good

Jeg har hatt en skikkelig deilig fridag! Og det gjr seg fr to intense uker med byrkonkurranse p skolen. Dagen startet med noen etterlengtede timer sammen med verdens beste Birgitte, men det var visst ikke nok. For flotte Polliani har hatt en konkurranse sammen med Ebay og jeg er den heldige vinner av 200 euro til shopping p Ebay.no. Bare sjekk her! Himmeelsk!

-

I've had a great day off! And that's nice before two intense weeks with agency competitions at school. The day started with some really cosy hours with the world's greatest Birgitte, but that's wasn't enough. Gorgeous Polliani arranged a competition with Ebay and I'm the winner of 200 EUR to spend at Ebay.no. Check it out here! Heaven!

I gr var jeg i overraskelsesfest til kjre Eli (som dere kanskje har sett har tatt et par antrekksbilder). Det var iskaldt og da er svart en sikker vinner. En veldig enkel farge bruke om man vil holde seg varm med ull og lag p lag.

-

Yesterday I went to a surprise party for dear Eli (as you might have seen she has taken a few outfit pictures). It was really cold and then black's a winner. An easy colour to use if you want to keep warm with wool and layering.  

Beaded bags

Via/Style.com

Jeg har alltid vrt veldig glad i perlede mnster og er fortsatt p jakt etter et vennearmbnd med perler. N ser jeg ogs at to av veskene som er listet som topp 10 p Style.com er dekorerte med perleinspirert mnstre. Jeg er solgt! Fendien er virkelig helt r.

-

I've always loved beaded patterns and I'm still looking for a friendship bracelet with pearls. Two of the bags listed as top ten at Style.com is also decorated with pearl inspired patterns. I'm sold! The Fendi is soo amazing.

H&M SS12

Via/Trine's Wardrobe

H&M blir bare bedre og bedre. Og det er s gy se s mye fint fra kjedebutikkene etter ha siklet p lookbooks med altfor dyre ting. Gleder meg til lette stoffer, masse oransje og morsomme sko!

-

H&M keeps getting better. And it's so much fun to see cool collections from the high street  brands after drooling on lookbooks with way too expensive stuff. Looking forward to light fabrics, lots of orange and funny shoes!

New patent boots

Endelig et par nye ankelsko i samlingen! Jeg har fullstendig dilla p lakk om dagen, s disse er jo helt perfekte. De er fra Jenny by Ara og finnes i 2. etasje hos Grndsens Skotimagazin.

-

Finally a pair of new ankel boots in my collection! I'm loving patent these days, so these are just perfect. They're from Jenny by Ara. 

Yesterday's mix

Fuzzy sweater from H&M, turtleneck from Bik Bok and necklace from Glitter.

Denne pologenseren kjpte jeg p Bik Bok til femti kroner og den er allerede en klar hstfavoritt. Burgunder er en utrolig lett farge bruke, men likevel gjr den mye ut av seg.

-

I bought this turtleneck at Bik Bok for only fifty NOK and it's already a fall favorite. Burgundy is a really easy colour to match and decorative in the same time.

Sneakers

My favorites/1. Ash 2. Nike 3. New Balance

Sneakers er veldig i vinden om dagen og jeg merker at jeg omfavner den trenden med glede. Det er jo ikke noe som er s bra som kunne vre trendy uten sitte fast i brosteinen. Likevel er det en del som kan g feil. P samme mte som med capsblgen som herjer i bloggverdenen om dagen. Sneakersene fra Isabel Marant for eksempel, skjnner jeg ingenting av. Spesielt ikke den svre puten foran. Ja eller nei til bryte rene antrekk med sneakers?

-

Sneakers is very cool these days and I'm loving it. It's nothing like being trendy and not getting stuck in cobblestones. Still there's a lot of things that can go wrong. Like the trend where all fashion bloggers wear caps. The sneakers from Isabel Marant, for example. I really don't get it. Especially not that big pillow in front. Yes or no to split a clean outfit with sneakers?

Good night

Avslutter en mrk hstdag med deilig kveldsmat, te, blogglesing og Styleby. Sov godt!

-

Ending a cold evening with delicious food, tea, blog reading and Styleby. Sleep tight!

Jeg klarte glemme sette minnekortet inn i kameraet fr jeg dro til skolen i dag. Og siden det blir mrkt klokka fem er det ikke like lett f tatt antrekksbilder. Men her fr dere i alle fall se de nye armbndene som jeg kjpte i gr.

-

I forgot to put the memory card in my camera before going to school today. And since it's dark at like five o'clock it's not that easy to take outfit pictures. But at least you get a look of the new bracelets that I bought yesterday.
