Oscar favourites

The Oscars Academy Awards  2012 were held last Sunday. Unfortunately I did not watch it, as I was at work. But here are some of the best dressed women of the Oscars this year, in my opinion  

Gwyneth Paltrow, a vision in a Tom Ford dress



Jessica Chastain in the most amazing
Alexander McQueen dress!


Penelope Cruz in Giorgio Armani

Judy Greer in Monique Lhullier







And here are a few of my favourites from the Vanity Fair after party
Diane Kruger 

Gorgeous Kate Bosworth in Prabal Gurung


My absolute favourites would have to be Gwyneth´s and Jessica´s fabulous dresses

Have a great day!

Music on a monday: Mumford and sons

Hey guys,
I have not been blogging as much as I would have wanted recently, but I have a perfectly good excuse. My laptop finally decided to give up on me, so until I get a new computer I hope you will be able to forgive my lack of posting.
I spent most of my weekend sick in bed, and working, which was fine ( except for the sick part). I am so excited, as it feels like spring is coming, went out for coffee sunday morning and you can feel the weather is getting warmer, which we Icelanders really deserve after this rough winter. Spring is in the air...finally.



Such a lovely song! 


Have a great week guys

Jewels

I love big chunky jewellery. Even though I usually dress quite ladylike, I like almost all jewellery that looks a bit different or slightly weird. Eyecatching jewellery. Things like body chains, hand harnesses, ear cuffs, big rings and flower headbands are quickly moving to the top of my most wanted list these days.





Dorothy Perkins body chain




I love this Topshop spike cross ring, just too scared I might poke someone´s eye out.




Topshop chain vest necklace
this would look so amazing with a black dress, like a rockstar outfit !!!



Topshop egyptian ring
For my inner hippy





Topshop pagan chain hair barette
I don´t think my hair is long enough for this amazing piece, but I still really really want it.



The weather yesterday started to look slightly like the beginnings of spring, sunny yet chilly which made me hopeful. This morning it had started snowing again. The weather here in Iceland is truly weird

Music on a monday:White nights

Hi guys
I had the most amazing weekend, and I hope you did too.
On Friday I had a French themed party with my friends, so much fun! We drank red wine and stuffed our faces with amazing cheeses, bread and chocolate cake. Then we headed downtown to dance the night away. Couldn´t have been better. This is gonna be a short week, which is nice. I have winter break at school at the end of the week, and it will be great to have some extra time on my hands to finish off schoolwork, and catch up with friends.



I really really love this song because it reminds me that the summer ist almost here again!!!

much love

Valentine´s day

Hi guys!

So yesterday was Valentine´s day. I hope all of you had an amazing day filled with love and happiness.
I had already decided not to make a big thing out of this day in particular, because I believe we don´t need a special day telling us to be nice and to show our love to the people around us, it should be like that every day. Still it is fun to have special days like this to break up the monotony of everyday life.
Valentine´s day is a lover´s day, but to me passionate love is not the most important love we experience in this life. The most important love of all is the love you have for yourself. It´s simple: If you don´t love yourself, who will?
Of course there are other loves that could never be replaced for anything else, for example there is no love like the love of a mother, a father, the love of a sibling or the love of a good friend. Solid companions that will always stand by you and love you, no matter what. ( I know, I am getting a bit corny here). So in the spirit of Valentine´s day I am giving a shoutout to my amazing  (and sometimes very annoying) family and the best friends a girl could wish for!

Music on a Monday : Whitney Houston

Hey guys

I haven´t felt like blogging lately therefore the blog has mostly  been down for the past weeks.
Last time I did a music on a monday post I dedicated it to great music industry legend Etta James, that recently passed away. Sadly this week´s monday song is dedicated to another amazing singer that has left us our ranks: Whitney Houston passed away this weekend, all to early at the age of 48.
I guess you can say she was a legend too.  There are so many great songs that came from her.
The one I´ve picked for this week is a song I will always connect to many of my happiest memories and best friends, near and far away.





-May she rest in peace
Have a good week everyone

All my love
-A
