20130609-204213.jpgBlazer & tank top: Gina tricot (old), trousers: h&m, heels: Zara, sunnies: topshop, bracelet: Cheap Monday, necklaces: D&G and vintage, bag: & other stories. This is what I wore when my friends took me out for my birthday dinner last Friday! All white again, this time even whiter ;) haha. Also got this new bag from & other stories when I was in Copenhagen! I was in the hunt for a holographic bag, so I got super excited when I found this one! They had a bigger one as well but I thought that one was a bit too big for my taste :) so this one was perfect! Love that it has a little leather waistband, hello practical and chic! Also had my holographic Cheap Monday bracelet on, so it was all white with holographic touches :), what do you think of the outfit? :) thoughts? Also so pleased with how my hair turned out! I’m a brunette all over again with sun kissed ends ;) wooho!



My makeup favourites at the moment!

The pink “Mindy” lipstick from Make up Store, real flashy colour, very bold but also fun! And real easy to apply which I find their red lipstick unfortunately isn’t.. It’s very powdery.. But the pink one, thumbs up!

Also Bare Minerals concealer and powder foundation, win win! And their blusher colour “the one” the perfect pink and slightly red rouge, absolutely love it!!

watch: Kapten & Son, find it here

For a while now I have been looking for a watch for myself, something classic, minimalistc but still with some edge, and I finally found the one! I received this beauty from Kapten & Son the other day and I am in love! You know me I absolutely adore black so therefore I fell for the ‘Campus All Black‘ with silver detailing. I’m telling you this beauty made sure I was on time throughout London Fashion Week. P.S how cute is the packaging?! Not to mention the Captain style letter that goes with it

Stay tuned for some outfit pics and Kapten time!

 For now, Be Kapten! ;)

The Primrose Hill Fantasy

I’m back from my London holiday, been planning for my official move back to London after being in Sweden for about two years, so in the end of this month it is happening, London round two! Can’t wait! Anyways, before dealing with flat hunting and everything that comes with a move, me and my boyfriend thought we’d take a week off together to chill out in London, and so we did, was real nice!

Here’s a few pics from a day we spent in Primrose Hill, my fave neighborhood in London actually,if you haven’t been, you have to go! It has a beautiful green hill where you can get one of the greatest views over London from + super cosy pubs and stores, also if ur VERY lucky you might run into some of the local celebs like Kate Moss or Jude Law, this time I sadly didn’t see either, but did run into the british retail queen, Mary Portas, who gave me a cheeky smile, hello excitement! haha!

Btw, got these new jeans from my man, yeah! Love em! my faves at the moment, wooho.


Cause you live in shades of cool


Just on holiday in London at the moment! Here’s an outfit from last week! New skirt wooho! Also I’m so addicted of this top from Weekday! Been wearing it pretty much everyday over here, can’t seem to get it off of me! Recommended if ur in need of a “nicer” casual black top!
