Airwaves

Hey guys!

Airwaves is less than one week away!!  Starting to feel the butterflies in my stomach. This is (almost) better than Christmas.  What I love about his festival is that you get to discover new icelandic bands (or bands you didn´t know about yet) as well as all the great foreign artists that participate. 1860 is one of my must see bands this year. They are an icelandic band and their songs give me the chills everytime I listen to them. For those of you that don´t have a bracelet to the festival,  check out the Iceland Airwaves off venue program, I think they will be playing a couple of venues.



 
 
I would love to get some comments from you guys, are any of you going to Airwaves? what are your must see artists?
 
Happy Thursday!

Wise words

Hey guys,

Some wise words from the late Marilyn Monroe to accompany you in to the new week. She was such an amazing actress, and from what I´ve read and heard she was an amazing person as well.





 
 
Have a great week!

Weekend inspiration


Hey guys!
Can´t believe the weekend is here again.
Not that I am complainig though, always nice to get a little break. Here are a couple of things that have gotten me through the workweek.





Words of wisdom from Henri Matisse



 


Find Yours.

Found this video from an ad campaign by Expedia. They launched a video competition with the theme Find Yours. The videos had to focus on how you find yourself through travel, your wake up call, your understanding or your anthem for example. This video is called Find your goodbye, and it is very heartfelt... I almost cried. Job well done Expedia!


 
 
 
 
 
 
Caspar David Friedrich
Caspar David Friedrich is one of my favourite artists. I was introduced to his art while studying art history a couple of years back. His work seems appropriate for this time of year as it always reminds me of wintertime.
 
 
 
           
 
 
 
 
 
Pink!
 
October is breast cancer awareness month,  so pink seems like an appropriate colour to wear. I would not object to wearing this every single day of the month. So pretty!

And the hair to match !

topshop lust list


Hi guys,
 
Like I have mentioned I seriously love love love Topshop. Unfortunatly their website doesn´t ship to little Iceland. Fortunatly I have an amazing friend that lives in Denmark and she lets me send my orders to her. As a result I have been spending quite some time "window" shopping these past few weeks. Here are a couple of things that made it to the top of my list. As you can probably tell by these items I am really into gothic details at the moment:  if it is made of velvet, mesh, lace or has crosses on it - count me in!



WHIMSICAL lace up boots
 
 
 
 
 
MESH lace trim dress
 
 


VELVET cut out body 
 
 
CAT´S  eyes t- shirt
 
 
VELVET cross choker necklace
 
 DIP dye embellished shorts
 
 
JEWEL  photo t - shirt 
 
 
 
 
Gorgeous, not?
 
I think I might be a (top)shopaholic
 
 
Have a great day everyone

wanted: Carrie Bradshaw shoes


Hi guys,

I found these cute heels at ASOS the other day. I am a huge fan of Sex and the city and these remind me a bit of the shoes Carrie wore in one episode. Needless to say, I´ve added them to my wishlist.


 
If you like them too, you can find them here
 
 
happy shopping!

Landscape

Hey!

Found these amazing landscape photographs online the other day. These are all taken in Iceland by a photographer named Andre Ermolaev and the photos are taken from a plane or helicopter. Simply stunning!
We also had the some very beautiful northern lights lighting up the sky last night - unfortunatly I was not able to take any photos as my camera battery was empty.

 


 
 
 
 
 Looks more like art than natural landscapes. All photos in this post belong to Andre Ermolaev
and I strongly suggest that you check out his work in the link here above.
Happy Monday!

Weekend

 Hey guys,
It´s finally Friday!!!

Have had a busy week - no classes but my schedule has been packed to the brim with  group meetings for school assignements and as much reading as I can manage as I am a little bit behind with the course reading. I am looking forward to a lovely, relaxing weekend with family before the next crazy school week starts. Here´s what Im going to do :
  
 
Bake

This weekend I am going to attempt to find the time to make these adorable mini cheesecakes. I got the recipe from one of my favourite food blogger, Eva. She is icelandic and has such a passion for food which shines through the blog. All the recipes are in icelandic ( but you can probably use  google translate if you want to make these)

 Theatre

It has been a tradition of the women in my family to regularly go to the theatre. This Saturday I am going with my mom and sister to ther theatre to see a play called Á sama tíma að ári ( Same time next year). So excited!



 
Airwaves

Having some fun planning my airwaves schedule, here is my playlist with must see bands .... I just need to start planning my outfits - only three weeks to go !!!

Weekend road trip part 2

Hey guys,

A little while ago I did a post with photos from when I went to the sheep round up in Grindavík . Since the round up was delayed for one day we ended up going sightseeing and came back the next day for the round up. We didn´t stay for long to see the round up, since the weather was horrible. It rained non stop so even though we (and everyone there) were dressed appropriatly in rain coats and pants, after 15 minutes everyone was wet to the bone.

Iceland goes GAGA

Hey guys,

Lady Gaga has landed! In Iceland !
She will be attending a ceremony at Harpa concert and conference hall to receive an award from the Lennon/Ono fund. Here  I found a quote from Yoko explaining why she chose Lady Gaga for this award, where she is described as  " one of the biggest living artists of our time. She is not only an artist, she is also an activist, using her art to bring better communication to the world. She is being acknowledged for her activism, and how her album Born This Way has widely changed the mental map of the world. And how it has made us deal with the future world, which happens to be here already."
Not to shabby, eh ? Congrats Lady Gaga!
The ceremony is being held in honour of John Lennon´s memory,on his birthday which is today: the 9th of Oktober. Among other recipients of the award from the Lennon/ ono fund are: Rachel Corrie and Christopher Hitchens. Tonight the Imagine peace tower in Viðey will be lit and will stay lit until December 8th. If you are interested you can see a live feed from the lighting of the peace tower here










 
 
Have a peaceful day everyone !

Airwaves´12 : Daughter



Hi guys,
It´s 22 days until Airwaves and the countdown continues:
I really want to see  Daughter during the festival. Elena Tonra is Daugther. I love her mellow, soothing sound and the songs are so beautifully haunting or as the Iceland Airwaves website says: "She talks about unrequited love, lost hope and death… in the prettiest way imaginable."



 
 
Daughter is playing at 21.30 at Fríkirkjan Saturday the 3rd of November
 
 
Are any of you out there going to the festival?
What are your must see artists?

Adventures in travel


 
 
 
 
 
Hey guys,
I hope everyone had a great weekend. I did, had an amazing Saturday night with friends. I made the snickers bars ( posted the recipe last friday). Very yummy but very messy so I didn´t take any photos. We put them in the freezer and they turned into tasty snickers ice cream bars.
I have a crazy week of school work ahead of me, a lot to do and very little time.  Still there is light at the end of the tunnel, I am very excited about my trip to Ireland next march! Just booked the hostel last week and I couldn´t be more excited! It´s been a while since I´ve been somewhere new and I love travelling above everything else in life, especially when I get to visit a new country.
This is extra exciting for me because I have dreamt of going to Ireland for some time now.
Threw in some travel themed photos I´ve collected from here and there throughout the web.  
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 


Where do you dream of going?

Have a great week!
