If I ever feel like I have nothing to do, which I think most of us feel sometimes, I tend to search for inspiration and make mood boards. It keeps my creativity level high and it cheers me up. Well well, I'm on my way to meet up Alexsandra. We're about to buy the last props, or whatever you like to call it, for the photoshoot we, me and my wonderful team, have tomorrow! I hope you have a great friday guys, I'm taking it easy! Can't be hungover or tired at any photoshoot... pretty unprofessional if I was haha!
let's run away
I bought this beautiful notebook when I lived in New York. It's from Urban Outfitters and I use it both as my inspiration and project book. It's so fun to write by hand and look at inspiration pictures in real life and not on a computer screen, iPad, iPhone or whatever. So if you like to get inspired this is a great and fun way! Also, it's so much easier to bring a notebook on meetings, cafés, travels etc, a laptop is quite heavy at sometimes, unnecessary and excessive! This book is what I'll bring to my meeting with Alexsandra, my MUA, today!
Justin Cronin The Passage
// Flickan från ingenstans, 39,5 sek, Akademibokhandeln //
I bought this book today on the finale book sale at Akademibokhandeln. It's pretty thick, a little over 900 pages! The plot sounded intriguing, or the little text I read on the back of the book made me interested. I always read the back. Well... to be honest, the front or the title of the book has to be intriguing too, otherwise I wouldn't read the back of any book haha... yes I'm judgmental, and I tend to judge the book by its cover, or title! But I guess I'm not the only one! Am I right?
This book is called "The Passage" in English, has anyone of you read it?

An outfit from last year. I'd really like it to be warm outside so that I don't need to look like the michelin man haha... I experience the weather so cold, especially since it's really windy. It's just that one moment everything is fine I'm walking in glorious sunshine, but all of a sudden I really have to walk hard against the wind to get anywhere, it's horrible! Well it may seem like a tiny issue, but for me who walks everywhere it's pretty damn exhausting and irritating! I try to walk along with the wind, but at some point I have to turn around and walk back... burrr the wind makes it so cold :(
fed up trailer
An amaaaazing documentary about food and the dark side of America's food companies, AND the lies about 0% fat and sugar. Really worth watching!
I've been super tired today, and I've been craving chocolate... but I had to settle with these pictures haha! You'll find my recipe for these chocolate truffles HERE! The shoot went well yesterday, I'll look at the pictures when I get back to Växjö and my new screen from NEC! I have to concentrate all of my energy into the next shoot which is now on saturday!
// Almost exactly one year ago, shooting Kamila in Gamleby, pictures here! //
I have a photoshoot today between 13:00 and 19:00. I can't tell you much about it since it's for my exam. Rebecca is helping me to set the light and she's soon here to grab some lunch before we're off to the studio! Wish me luck!

Today I've been writing on my CV, or updating it, and planning for tomorrow's photoshoot as much as I can. Nervous and excited, as always! I guess it's good to be a little nervous though! As of right know I'm planning what to cook for dinner, it's probably going to be chickpeas patties, yum yum! I'm not sure what I'm doing tonight, I'll take it easy though, I really can't be hungover during a photoshoot, puh! I hope you guys have a great friday night!
Pictures from last summer!
I got so powerful summer feelings today when I walked to eat lunch, in the city, with a friend of mine. 14 degrees C and glorious sunshine. I can't wait until the spring is here for real (at least 15 degrees C everyday...!). Anyway, it's Kamiljas birthday today, whioo congratzzz girrrrl! So I'm soon off to Södermalm to celebrate her with a couple of friends!
the perfect trench
Monki, 700 sek, don't forget the 10% student discount!
I found the perfect trench coat two days ago at Monki! I've wanted a trench coat for so many years, and I haven't found the perfect one until now! I didn't want a winter coat since I want to use it during the spring, cold summer days and autumns. So this one is really light, smooth and so beautiful. It fits me just the way I want! I'll show you pictures of my own as soon as I have the time to shoot any. I bought the first coat, the light one! Love it!
hitting the gym
I haven't been in the gym for 1 month, traveled to Gamleby for 2 weeks of lessons and then cut of a part of my finger. I'm feeling a little ashamed so I thought it was time to hit it today since my finger doesn't hurt as much as it did a few days ago! Wish me luck guys!
today and tonight
Picture from Södra Teatern. I've been shopping stuff for the shoot on saturday, and some clothes for me from Monki. I think the spring sale started today, or maybe not spring but a sale anyways! So check it out peeps! Tonight I' having Kamilja over for dinner, so I'll better prepare now!
Hung out with Kamilja today, we took the ferry from Slussen to Djurgården and saw a exhibition at Liljevalchs that's called Liljevalchs Vårsalong. A pretty big collection of carefully selected artists. A lot of fun and beautiful work, but there's always something you just don't get haha! Anyway, the first picture is of Kamilja surrounded by a whispering cloud! The second one, a beautiful little table and my shadow! We walked to a really cosy cafe called StureKatten after the exhibiton for a cup of coffe. A perfekt sunday!
a walk and talk
It's been such wonderful weather today. So I decided to walk, instead of taking the subway, to the lunch I had with Per, Jenny and Johan. Chinese, dumplings and other yummy stuff. We later ended up at some sort of weird bingo event with transvestites, a male police stripper etc. at Södra Teatern. Pretty funny, but we mostly enjoyed the view, of Stockholm that is, and some of us even a beer. I have nothing special planned for this evening, I'll see whats happening!
a coffee with
I'm having a coffee with Fexxan' right now (check out her blog, she just started blogging again!), close to Östermalmstorg. We're working with our exams, searching for jobs etc, and laughing! I hope you guys have a great friday and a lovely evening!
exotic matte lipstick
Another matte lipstick from Kicks, this time a dark pink called Exotic. It's nice to have different colours to choose between. I have a couple of both cold and warm colors in the purple-red-pink section. Those are the colours I've embraced so far. I don't really like colours like blue, green or yellow on my lips (so far, you never know!), it's too unnatural for me!
7 necklaces for 129 sek right now at HM
Found this lovely package with 7 necklaces at HM the other day. Really beautiful and cheap necklaces. We'll see how much of a quality there is. Still worth it though, because of the amazing price of course! Pictures with inspiration from my beautiful colleague, Pouline, you'll find a link to her blog in the very top of this one!
Dark Spirit matte lipstick from Kicks, 99 sek. I'm a little bit hung up on lipsticks at the moment. I'm getting used to it and starting to like it a lot! Someone told me once, wearing lipstick doesn't have anything to do what kind of lips you have, it's about feeling comfortable in it. AND the only way to get comfortable is by using it more often! I hope you have a wonderful afternoon! I'm about to take a walk in this beautiful weather!
Last wednesday I happen to be on blogg.ses' homepage and style page, featured as "today's style". Always fun to be on blogg.se's site. Today I'm doing nothing much. Trying to figure out some stuff concerning my upcoming photoshoots! Wish me luck guys!
It's been such wonderful weather in Stockholm today! Sunny and 16 degrees C! I had this jeans jacket on from Levi's, black jeans and a mint green knit sweater! It looks like it's gonna be sunny the next week too! The spring is finally here! A happy girl here I'll tell ya!
maria nila stockholm
Now when I have coloured hair I use these two products when I'm showering. Shampoo and Conditioner from maria nila stockholm. Produced in Sweden and vegan. I'm not the one who should give tips about what products to use on colored hair, since this is the second time I've colored the ends of my hair. But so far I like these products, and I give these a big plus for being vegan and produced in Sweden! You'll find the products here! Oh well, not to forget, I bought them from Kamila who think she got eczema from the shampoo. I have really sensitive skin too but I haven't had any problems with these! So I stumbled up on them so to speak, since Kamila couldn't return them to the store she sold them to me!
I'm about to go out and take a long walk in my favourite shoes. I've had a crazy headache since yesterday morning that won't go away. I hope this walk will help, because I don't like eating ibuprofen and such just for a headache. Well, enough said about that, tonight I'm not sure what I'm doing (hopefully something fun, yey, haha), but I hope you guys have a great friday!
Two more pictures of me with flowers. I haven't been feeling so well today so I've just been unpacking all my stuff! Two beautiful things happend yesterday that made my day! As you all know I did hurt my left index finger two days ago, and it still hurts bad. So it was a bit complicated to carry all my stuff yesterday! But an older gentlemen helped me with my huge luggage out from the train, so greatful! When I later reached the subway all of the escalators was standing still, and to my amazement another gentlemen offered to take my luggage down the staircase! I didn't even ask! Swedes in Stockholm know how to do it too! So greatful for all the help I got from strangers yesterday!
invasion of monki
// Shirt, Monki // Pants, Monki // Shoes, DinSko // Sunglasses, TopShop // Watch ?? // Necklace, Monki //
It's ridiculous how much I love Monki's clothes... I should live in a Monki store haha! I'm traveling to Stockholm today, by train of course! I hope I'm able to work on the train, I'm a little scared to feel "carsick" though... anyway, I hope you have a great wednesday!
vogue coco chanel
The book i found at Akademibokhandeln, 69sek. So fun to have fashion and photobooks at home even though this isn't one of the greatest you could have. I have a couple of books now, the best is of course the one Mikael and Therese gave me by/about Richard Avedon! By the way, I cut off a piece of my left index finger today, it's unbeliveble how much it hurts, I cut pretty deep though... my fingerprint will never be the same again haha!
I'm sketching weird stuff with my promarkers at the moment. Hahaha... I like her lips but her eyes creeps me out.... anyway. I had a lovely lunch with Nadja today. We talked for hours and went looking for some stuff in the city after that. I found a book on sale at Akademibokhandeln, I'll show you guys which book I bought tomorrow!
with summer in my mind
// Everything from Monki, except the hair color which is from Revlon, color purple red //
Thought that I should give you guys better pictures on my new hair color. I know dip dye isn't the shit anymore, but what do I care? It's still fun and an easy way to make a change to your hair without going to the hairdresser and spend a f*& load of money! And this purple red really suits me, so much better than the pink hair I had 1,5 years ago! What more can I say? I love it and the color feels so right on me!
the whole magazine, vegan beauty
// Our magazine assignment with the guest teacher Albin. I made this Vegan Beauty magazine, and got, what I can recall, only good response! //
What I know of, the makeup isn’t vegan, I just wish it would be!
Hey guys! I totally forgot to blog this yesterday. So much happend, and I just tried to really enjoy my last evening in Gamleby with Kamila and Felicia. Kamila went home yesterday, Felicia's staying 2 more weeks in Gamleby to work and I got back in Växjö 2 hours ago. I'm working with my inspiration book at the moment. I got so inspired! Felicia and I stayed up late yesterday talking about pictures, photography, and we went really deep in our pictures and creativity. Exactly what I needed. So sad that Kamila couldn't stay to join us in that deep talk, but there will be many more chances!
I'll show you guys the whole "magazine" tomorrow!
Denise went home yesterday so we had a little goodbye dinner here in Gamleby, with the classic pancakes!
