Etsy Buys

Hi lovelies! I’ve talked a lot about my love for Etsy lately, but I know that it can be hard to navigate on the site to find exactly what you want. So I thought I’d show you some of my latest buys, with links. I got some really cute ribbons, which I just love to have around the house. Whether I’m making a homemade birthday card, doing some scrap booking, or just want to decorate something, they always come in handy. So here we go!

I still have a few packages that I’m waiting for, but I love everything so far. How cute is the ‘I love you’ ribbon? I decorated Fride’s birthday present with it, and it made all the difference in the world.

Right now Amalie and her son just left, and I have to jump out of my easter attire, which consists of sweats, no makeup and a bun on my head. I’m going out to dinner with fab friends in the sunny weather, I can’t wait! I hope you’re all having a lovely day♥

Violet

.

Hi lovelies! Today is so sunny that I woke up at 8am, an hour before the alarm clock went off. Anyone who knows me know that that never happens, haha, so I’ve had a huge smile on my face all day. Today I’ve spent time at the family breakfast and played with my nephew, and now my bestie Amalie and her son are coming over to play some more. I’m planning to teach her 5-years old some of my soccer tricks, and I can’t wait. As you probably understand, I’m not exactly dressing up during these lazy easter days, but I did spend some time doing my nails last night. I decided to go crazy and go for something else than my usual red. Living on the edge right here! I ended up with two different shades of violet, and I really like the result. The lightest one, which is my favorite, is called Go Ginza. The darkest one is called Bond With Whomever. Both from Essie.

.

Now it’s playtime, before I have a dinner date with Ivan and his girlfriend later. I love this holiday!! I hope you’re all having a wonderful day♥

Jen’s Pirate Booty

My new dress from Jen’s Pirate Booty is seriously girliness heaven! It’s so light and flowy, with the cutest details. I’ll definitely be strolling around in this in California and the American deserts this summer, but I just had to show you a little peek before that.

I’ve spent the day doing ‘extreme makeover house-edition’ work. Seriously, it’s going to look sooo different here when we’re done! Almost all our furniture were white, and now we’re bringing more textures and natural elements into the house. I can’t wait to show you the result! Now I’m off to spend the rest of the day with my grandmother, nephew and the rest of my amazing family. Oh, and by the way, I just have to tell you about the huge scare I went through last night. You know my new leopard printed Adidas by Stella McCartney coat I showed you yesterday? So I was wearing it when driving my boyfriend to his friends last night, in his new BMW X5 with leather seats. It’s such a cool car, and I’m so careful when driving it. When I got home and got out of the car, I noticed that my jacket was a bit stuck to the seat. When I turned around, the black leather seat had turned into a leopard printed seat!! I’m not even joking, the leopard print was all over the seat, and it was s-t-u-c-k!! I completely panicked, and ended up scrubbing the seat with boiling hot water for an hour in the dark and pouring rain. Luckily it came off after a lot of scrubbing. I just noticed that the inside of my leather camera strap is suddenly leopard printed too after carrying it on my shoulder for like two minutes yesterday, what’s up with that?? So I just want to warn you, I don’t recommend that coat at all after all. In fact I think I have to send it back. Haha, I just had to tell you about it, can you imagine how stressed out I was?!

I hope you’re all enjoying the easter holiday♥

Magic Hour

Good morning girlies! I just wanted to pop in and wish you all a wonderful day before I’m off for my power walk. The easter holiday kicks off today for me, and I’m so excited to just spend some quiet days with my family and friends. My grandma is flying in today, and I can’t wait for all the lovely family dinners, easter egg eating and then some more easter egg eating. Even though I’m not up in the mountains like everyone else, easter in the city is pretty freakin’ fantastic too.

I just enjoyed a long and yummy breakfast while reading fashion magazines with Friends in the background. No matter how many times I see the episodes, they crack me up every time. I love that little magic hour in the mornings, there’s no better way to start off the day!

.

I’ve updated my kitchenware a bit lately, and I have a feeling you guys love interior just as much as I do, so I thought I’d show you. First up, this glass coffee cup, isn’t it cute? I found it at Kremmerhuset.

.

This stone plate is so cool! I got it in three different sizes, and they all work just as well as serving trays as they do as regular plates. I got them at Zara Home.

.

.

This fun straw for my lemon water is from Etsy.. I’ve received so many of my latest Etsy buys now, and I thought I’d make a little post on them. I love that store so much!

.

Have a wonderful day you guys♥

This week’s wish list is filled with feminine, girly, incredibly pretty pieces as always, and of course; Lots of lace. I’ve gotten several requests to show you some lace dresses, as I’m such a sucker for them, so here you have a few options :) I think I have to click number 4 home, imagine how pretty it will look this summer with tan skin, hair loosely up and some cute sandals. Summer can’t arrive fast enough!! Other than that, I’m dedicating my whole evening to home spa. Since I drank more than a few glasses of wine both on Saturday and last night, I don’t exactly feel very fresh right now. A full body scrub, shaving, a coconut oil hair mask, new nail polish and of course a face mask is on the menu, and I can’t wait to get started. Have a lovely evening you guys♥

Stella McCartney

Hi girlies! I just got back from a long power walk, which was extra fun today because of my new coat. I’ve been looking for a light coat for my power walks which covers the bum but is still cute, and last week I found the perfect one; This dream of a jacket from Adidas by Stella McCartney. And the best thing? It was 70% off!! I was so excited to test it that I forgot all about my hangover from last night’s wine with the girls, and headed right for the mountains.

Adidas by Stella McCartney coat: Here (70% off)

They still have it left in a small, which is the size I have. As you can see it’s a pretty oversized model. Isn’t it cute?♥

Sweet Simplicity

Ballerinas + bag: Ecco // Jeans: Asos // Top + hat: Zara

Hi beautiful people! Today has been such a lovely day, so we of course had to spend a little time outside in the middle of packing up and cleaning the house. My outfit today was really simple, and I almost got some Parisienne vibes from the ballerinas, the stripes and the overall simplicity. By the way, have you remembered to join in on Ecco’s ‘Share a Compliment‘ campaign here? Send a compliment to someone you love, admire, or you just feel deserve it by using their compliment creator app, such a nice idea!

Now I’m off to hang out with my girlfriends for the rest of the night, have a good one angels♥

Strawberry Smoothie

Hi angels! My boyfriend and I have had such a productive day so far. With loud music blasting all over the house we’ve packed down most of our furniture. No, we’re not moving, we’re getting a house makeover!! The new furniture arrived yesterday, and I seriously couldn’t be more excited. It will be very different, and give the whole house a new feel. I will of course show you tons of pics when everything is set up, but for now, I thought I’d share our lunch. My favorite smoothie recipe is so simple, and so yummy!!

.

All I use is one banana, a bag of frozen strawberries and a tiny bit of apple juice. The less apple juice you use, the more it tastes and feels like sorbet ice cream. I’m not even kidding, this is so close to sorbet ice cream!

.

.

Obviously, all you need to do is put everything in a mixer, and voila..

.

The freshest and yummiest smoothie I know!

.

Now we’re gonna continue packing the house down, before a big cleaning is on the menu for us. I hope you’re all having a wonderful day♥

My Brow Secret

Hi girlies :) I hope you’re all enjoying the easter holiday, lots of you are probably enjoying life up in the mountains right now? I’m so jealous, I wish our cabin was closer, it’s like a nine hour drive. Plus it’s by the ocean, so it’s not very easter-ish anyway, haha. Speaking of, my brother just bought a cabin today! This one is way closer than the other one, so I’m really excited to have a place to hang out this summer without doing the long drive. But anywho, I thought I’d share a little tips with you guys, and it’s all about the brows. I got these genius little brow razors sent to me last week, and I’m already addicted!

.

I hate having lots of little white hairs around my brows. It’s only natural, but they annoy the hell out of me. There’s no way I’m letting a normal razor anywhere near my brows, it’s way too painful to tweeze everything, and I’m not a big fan of getting my brows done professionally, as I always think they end up way too small. This brow razor is my big savior, it’s so genius! You just carefully brush it over areas with lots of hair in a downward motion, and the razor cuts them right off. I was a bit scared to cut myself at first, but it wasn’t a problem at all. I don’t think I’ve ever been happier with my brows than I am now!

.

I’m not quite sure where you can buy these, but different beauty stores should have them. They get a big thumbs up and a warm recommendation from me!

Other than that, I thought I’d start some research for our trip to the US this summer. Everything in Las Vegas, Grand Canyon and Moab is booked, but we still need to plan our time in California. If you have any tips I would really appreciate them! We of course want to check out Los Angeles, but if there’s any other areas around there we should check out, or any hotels we should stay at, please share! Have a great night you guys♥

Flower Power

Nothing makes me happier than being surrounded by beautiful flowers in fresh colors. I’ve been blessed with a boyfriend who I love more than anything and who I think is absolutely perfect, except for one thing.. No matter how many hints I give him about how happy I would be if he bought me flowers once in a while, it just doesn’t fly, haha. He’s bought me flowers a few times, but I’ve done some serious hinting every time, some would probably call it orders. So anyhow, the point was, I’m forced to buy all the flowers myself, and my boyfriend doesn’t even notice them. Anyone sharing my pain out there, or is it just me?

Today on my way home I stopped by a flower store, and really splurged on gorgeous flowers. I brought some cash from the pop up shop, so I sort of feel like my readers got me flowers, yay! I’m trying to get other flowers than roses, which is what I almost always get. This time these incredibly pretty cymbidiums came with me home, yellow because of easter of course. Yes, I had to google how to spell the name, hah.

.

.

I also got some pink branch carnations. I just love pink flowers!

.

.

I also have a bunch of roses that have stayed pretty for almost three weeks..

.

And of course several orchids..

.

From now on you can just call me the crazy flower lady. Seriously, I can’t get enough! I also have the prettiest blue hydrangea, but it has definitely seen its best days. Those things are freakin’ impossible to keep alive!!

Do you have a favorite flower? I would love some tips for my next flower frenzy♥
