Over the love




Hey guys,

There is a new song out with the wonderful Florence Welch. Absolutely one of my favorite artists. 
The song is called Over the love and will be featured in the soundtrack for the upcoming film, The Great Gatsby.




Love it! 
Florence can do no wrong.


Have a great day

wish wish wish

 


Hey guys , 

These two just made it to my ever growing wishlist. The Zara shirt reminds me of the beautiful shirts seen on the runway at Dries Van Noten for this summer and the shoes are perfect as I am on the lookout for new flats and I really really love these silver shoes. They have such a luxurious feel. 
Please be mine. 
Pretty please?

Music on a monday Jessie Ware



Hey guys, 

This song has been keeping me relatively sane during exam season. I can only study while listening to music, or at least I feel that helps me. So Jessie´s upbeat sound has been on repeat for the past few days to motivate me and thanks to her exam prep is going pretty well!





Have a great week

Photography

Hey guys,

Photography is a big hobby of mine. I love how you can capture any moment just with the click of a button. Just like magic. I even have a really nice camera which I sadly I haven´t used that much lately. I guess as soon as I got an Iphone I started using that to take all my photos. Still I think it is a whole  other feeling with a real camera in your hands. One of my New Year´s resolutions was to take more photos, so I guess there is nothing left to do but take the camera for a walk!


Just for fun, here are a couple of my favourite photos that I´ve taken through the years












* all the photos in this blog post are my own. If you intend to use them in any way, please link back to this blog.

Music on a Monday: Sumargestur





Hi guys,


Feel this song is appropriate since we are finally getting a glimpse of spring here in Iceland, it´s still cold but it is so nice to have the sun. This song is called Sumargestur or Summers guest and is sung by Ásgeir Trausti, one of the hottest names in music right now here in  Iceland. 






Have a great week

weekend dressing : Sparkles


Hey guys, 

This is my fantasy outfit for tonight. Tonight I´m going to a friend´s birthday party and this sequin skirt would be perfect.  We still have freezing temperatures here in Reykjavík so the (faux) fur will be a lifesaver when it comes to hitting the town. 











Have a great weekend!

Foodie Friday: The little Paris Kitchen

Hey guys,

Stumbled upon a really cute show while watching television with my mother the other night:  The little Paris kitchen with Rachel Khoo. I haven´t exactly been quiet about my love for the city and this show is almost like it´s tailor made for me as it combines my love for Paris and my love for food. Rachel Khoo is the perfect host, a warm and inviting person and it is clear that she enjoys what she does.
Here below is a clip from the show where she is making quiche Lorraine. 







Rachel also has a cookbook out, with the same name as the television series. I can´t wait to get my hands on this one and start cooking. 




 If you are interested in the book, you can find it here

Caspar David Friedrich


Hi guys,
While in high school I took a couple classes in art history. 
I have always been a great admirer of art and learning more about some of my favorite works of art sparked my interest in learning more. One of my favorite artists  is Caspar David Friedrich. Something in his dark works of art spoke to me when I was younger. Here are some of my favorite paintings of his ....

dressed up in Shakespeare



Hey guys, 

I am a big fan of English literature and an even bigger fan of Shakespeare. I would absolutely not mind having these tops in my wardrobe. 





" Deny thy father and Refuse thy name. Or, if thou wilt not be but sworn my love or i´ll find someone cuter"  A clever spin on the famous line from Romeo and Juliet. 




Another Romeo and Juliet inspired t - shirt.
Find it here 




The top one is my favourite, but I think it is sold out. So the second is a quite nice consolation 


Have a great day!

Buffalo


Hi guys,

The Buffalo shoes were all the rage when I was 7 years old. I remember that almost everyone had a pair, myself included. Having said that, I would still have to say that I count them among my wardrobe disasters. 
 I was a bit surprised to see that now they are back in!
 Well they say fashion always comes back. I just think it´s funny that the styles that were in when I was a child have finally made their comeback, however tacky they might have been. 
Does this mean I´m getting old?

weekend dressing: Rocky road

Hi guys, 
This is my dream outfit this weekend. The grey dress looks so comfy and I love the twist on the front. The rings keep the look a little raw while the brown color of the shoes and the bag  go well with the grey of the dress. Simple and pretty. 







All Topshop




Have a great weekend

I really like Dolce and Gabbana´s ad campaigns. Many of them  really show that the designer duo must value family. Here are some of my favorites...

The Carrie diaries

Hey guys!
I am such a huge fan of Sex and the city.I have watched the entire series over and over again and love following along on the adventures of Carrie and her friends. So you can imagine how excited I was to get to see the new series about Carrie´s life before New York. So far I have only seen a few episodes but they are very promising. Anna Sophia Robb is perfect as the young Carrie Bradshaw.






Of course part of the fun of watching this show are all the amazing outfits...








Have a great day!
