Today's outfit: Roland Garros



Today, I did something I have never done before. Look at the thing on my head. I have never wore one before. By never, I mean never in my entire life. This is totally outside my comfort zone. Stick with me, I'll tell you why.

Dead or Alive?



As surprising as it may sound, some people actually say they can't tell if I'm tired or not. I'm not sure whether it's a compliment or not, but to straight this out, here's the entire checklist to see if I'm more dead than alive.

My new darlings



Look at those darlings I bought during lunch today. I saw them, tried them and, ooooooh lord, I so kept them!

Pyjamas love



Let's have a little talk about night-wears that turns into day-wears (in reality with a little effort, it's not like you sleep in your pyjamas and then just slip into your heels and voila ready to go). But anyways, I have a vision of a little more romantic me that every morning wakes up in cute little pyjamas with my hair in a cute mess.

Black diamond super deal



Today I went out. I had like 2 hours off during the afternoon and I wasn't really searching for anything, but the shopping fairy was with me and showed me the way to the best buys. So much fun! Finally I made some really good deals.

Let's talk about skin care

As I had a few requests on the products I use, I'm going to give you the entire list and with that, my daily routine.

As a teenager I had acne. Not a massive problem, but an annoying one. My solution to that problem was to poke, squeeze and wash it with strong and cheap alcoholic products and I kept wondering why the problem lasted. (Really, they should hand out "the being a teenager manual" in every school. Oh, I forgot, we have Google now!).

Today's outfit



The sunniest day in Sweden so far. I celebrated with getting dressed as if it was 0 degrees Celsius. Blouse from Custommade, navy cardigan from Lindex, black blazer from Karen Millen, Armani watch, beret from H&M, jeans from Replay, and shoes from Vagabond.

Let's talk about Make-up

When I studied to become an make up artist about 10 years ago we learned to to the foundation all cover up. No matter if it was a bridal make up, party, day, night or transvestite make up, you covered the entire face in thick foundation and loose powder.

Diet version hair routine



Sometimes i just get so tired of my hair routine. Just to look a little descent takes so much effort! I have fine hair, wool-like with some curls. It gets quite dry and often very fluffy puffy, 100% annoying. Usually I wash it, blow it and brush it. It takes about 40 minutes and 40 minutes of my morning is 40 minutes I rather use for sleeping. Actually, when the alarm clock sets off in the morning I'm more dead then alive.

Thinkspiration





I walk. A lot. Approximately a billion hours a day. When you walk a billion hours a day you have a lot of time to spend on thinking. On one of those walks I started to think about what I think about. Mostly it was observations of what I saw around me.

Today's outfit: Boheme in town?

Boot cut jeans à la ABBA (thank you Jenny, love them all though I find it quite hard breathing but really who needs air? So 2011), vacation-bought top in Paris, Cavalli heels, Gucci sunglasses, Bianco bag,  and vintage necklace.

Bad everything day? There is a cure


Some days are just meant to be bad hair days, bad skin days, make up disaster days and the clothes just don't seem to fit and if it has gone real bad you could end up starting a nuclear war, by mistake. Today was one of those days (so far no war, thank God I kept calm) and to  make you and me prevent those future days, here is a checklist for you to print and save.

Monday celebration


Went by a flower shop to get these darlings for someone dear. Just wanted to show a little appreciation and why not do it on a Monday?

Foundations test: The verdict



So, remember I was asked by my skin therapist earlier this week to try on a few foundations from different brands? Such a fun mission! She brought me make up from three different brands. Nimue, Pür and Palina easy going minerals.

Choosing outfit of the day

When I'm choosing the outfit of the day I'm most of the time very stressed and I select one is that it looks good but still feels good.

The routine is I run with the kids to school and then head back to my home-office. The only time I meet people during the day is at lunchtime and maybe during the power walks on my way to and from school.

I'd like for my life to be a little more eccentric and sometimes it is, but most about the time it's just not. Still, I want to feel chic, but on a no time effort. So I have come to realize the secret is about having a smashing hot, colorful part of the closet only for this purpose.

So maybe in the morning, I would put on those tight skinny pants, blouse, blazer, and heels, but hey, it just doesn't happen. In panic, I look for my favorite jeans, put them on, with a camisole in lace and a colorful cardigan and scarf. On my feet, sneakers in white or navy. This is how I do it most of the time so I made a part of my closet to fit this style.

I bought several nice cardigans in happy colors. Several camisoles in different fabrics. Lace and silk are favorites!!! Then as I don't have time to choose among a billion accessories I focus on buying scarfs. Voilà, trendy happy closet!

Here are some snapshots from that one part of the closet. So many colors, yet they do so good together!!!

Le T-shirt parfait



I'm going to a Springsteen concert this Saturday. To make myself feel better about this (sorry Bruce but you are not my cup of tea when it comes to music), I bought myself a Bob Dylan t-shirt.
