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!
Orofluido hairoil, Cocopanda sells it for 49 sek at the moment if you buy something else from theirs site too!
Correcting Concealer, 2g, price: all between 239 to 379 sek!
My fav concealer from bareMinerals', really light, smooth/creamy and with really good covering!
yesterday, lyrics party
Me, Nirvana - Smells Like Teen Spirit, yes dip die and all haha, and Felicia (Barbie Girl)
Felicia (Barbie Girl), Kamila (Dancing Queen) and Denise (Take Me To Church).
Bad idea to party when you have a sore throat, it was burning when I woke up and I couldn't speak!
party in gamleby tonight
One year ago. Tonight it's a party, yey! My voice is even worse than yesterday but I'll party anyway! The theme for tonight party is song lyrics and titles, I'm not sure yet what I'll be, but something I don't usually dress in for sure!
If this was true... an assignment we got last tuesday, almost done! So much to do, and I'm about to loose my voice. If I do, I won't be able to do my internship presentation on monday or tuesday! I hope it get's better! I don't know what happens tonight, the party with YH5 is tomorrow!
This is what I've been doing today, shooting makeup, illustrations and candy! I have some retouching to do tomorrow though. But I had so much fun shooting it, despite that I'm sick and getting sicker by the hour, but I'll fight it through! I hope it won't last for so long!
i love my avocados
I made this quick picture a few days ago. Afterwards I would change the white background paper to black instead.
It's "fettisdagen" (fat-tuesday) today! 47 days left until easter and today there's a tradition in Sweden to eat Semlor. But I didn't have any pictures of those beauties so cinnamon buns will have to do for now. I don't think I'll have the chance to eat any today either... because I'm in Gamleby...!
back in gamleby
I'm back in Gamleby, 2 weeks of lessons. Yes, I am sharing a room with these two beautiful Malmö girls! We live in a really small space but I'm so happy it's with these two beauties I'll be spending my time here. I've missed them so much! We had our first lesson today and I've already had my first photoshoot haha, I'll show you tomorrow! It's nothing special just for our presentation tomorrow!
video, befor and after hair cut
Despite my goal to reach 100 cm long hair I decided to cut it off, 20-25 centimeters of my hair fell to the flor yesterday!!!! A big step and I'm so happy with my decision. The hair is finally even and there's no dull or dry hair in the ends anymore! The video is only 2 minutes long, I hope you'll enjoy the video and that you like my swedish accent haha! Watch in HD! Kisses!
superfood: chia pudding
My breakfast this morning after an early morning run! So cold but totally worth it!
Chia pudding with raspberries and blueberries:
2-3 tablespoons of Chia seeds
2 deciliters of ex: Soy milk, Almond Milk, Cashew Milk etc.
Blend the Chia seeds and your choice of milk, I used GoGreen unsweetened Soy Milk. Let it swell for 15 minutes, stir and put it in the fridge over the night. Garnish with granola, berries or whatever you like! There you have it, a delicious easy peasy breakfast, and soooooo crazy healthy, Chia seeds is the shit! 2 tablespoons chia seeds contains more Omega-3 than a salmon fillet! AND so much more, Google it!
hemp intensive hand butter
Hemp Intensive Hand Butter from The Body Shop, 140sek.
This keeps my hands soft and smooth all year around, especially since I both get eczema easy on my fingers and have nail psoriasis. But as long as I keep my hands hydrated nothing of these things shows. I've had this type of hand créme before but the one in a tube instead of this one thats in a jar, it's slightly different but I've been keen to try this one out too. So far I like it a lot, the smell of marijuana is somewhat milder than the other version, which is a pro. I don't want people to belive that I smoke weed everyday hahahaha... "It's just my hand butter okey?!"
i love my salad
One thing that I do love and can't live without is salad. And the only dressing I like consist of citron, oil, herb salt and pepper. Oh and avocado may be the best thing ever. Crazy healthy too. I'm about to go out and shop some stuff in the city.
The weather has been crazy beautiful these last days, it's so sunny and the sky is finally blue. I can feel myself get happier by just looking outside. I feel so down when it's cloudy, I appreciate a rainy day more than a cloudy one. Mostly because the rain is pretty beautiful and also nourishing to the earth. It's so cosy to se the rain run down the windows and cuddle inside with a cup of tea and people you love. And isn't a wet window often one of the first targets to photographers? So there must be some beauty to it.
new in from top shop
New in from Top Shop, found these on sale last week, instead of paying 649 sek I paid 200 sek for these. Such a great price. I'll use them a lot as soon as it gets a little warmer outside. So yes I am longing for spring and summer so that I can get a chance to wear them! Oh and the weather is truly beautiful today. A clear blue sky and a warm sun! I'm about to go out and enjoy it very soon!
the last one
Today I'm working with the pictures I shot last saturday, it looks amazing, I am soooo happy with it! I had a really lazy morning today, got out of bed around 9:30 and went to the gym shortly after 11. I did "long distance cardio" today for 2 hours, I'm feeling so good in my body now, so soft and comfortable! Back to work now Ellen, no more laziness for today!
fresh and new
instagram @ stylebyellen
I decided to swing my instagram account around to something fresh and light. I was so uninspired by my account and it looked kinda sad, oh well sad to me anyway. I just want to post things in my feed that keeps me inspired and that looks beautiful with everything else in the feed. Oh but I didn't delete any of my earlier posts, so those are still there. I try to post a new picture everyday, as I do here in my blog!
Oh I almost forgot! The shoot went great yesterday, I'm so happy with the pictures and the team was fantastic!
a shoot tonight
I have a shoot this evening, I'm so nervous but also really excited! So right know I'm getting ready and waiting for my MUA to arrive! Wish me luck!
My favorite shirt bought in New York, 58 or 68 dollars at Urban Outfitters, not sure about the price anymore haha! I got up so early today, 06:30, so f-ing tired right now. But I had fun assisting a shot, my last day on my internship with Fredrik Wannerstedt, it's sad that's it's already over! Besides two weeks of lessons in Gamleby between the 16th and 27th february I am all about my exam work the rest of my education at Gamleby School of Photography!
faux fur jacket
// Jacket, Weekday // Shirt, Urban Outfitters //
I love my new jacket from Weekday with faux fur on the front! Oh I just long for my mom to cut my hair. I'm gonna cut it pretty short this time, well.. short for me anyway. It's gonna be hard but I don't want my blonde dry hair anymore... I only want my natural colors, so about 2 years of hair growth shall fall to the floor next weekend! :000
halloumi cheese burger
Yesterday's lunch. Halloumi cheese burger with mashed avocado, a tomato slice, fried onion, salad and feta cheese. Yum yum and really easy to do. We had the potatoes in the oven for 20-25 minutes at 200 C. Sometimes you're worth a little luxury on a tuesday lunch! I got home from the gym two hours ago. Had pasta for lunch today and at the moment I'm just waiting for my hair to dry so that it won't freeze on my way to the city. I'm looking for water based paint, which you "can" have in your face and hair and still wash away without any difficulties.
brazil nut, the body shop
The scent I talked about yesterday. I don't know how to describe it, but it's a mild and slightly sweet fragrance with natural extract of Brazil Nuts. You can buy and read more about it HERE. I'm off duty today so I'm gonna chill with a friend and just take it easy. I'll probably go to the gym later I think. It was so hard to get out of bed this morning, so I had to skip the morning workout. I hope you guys have a nice tuesday as well!
black and white skin
When you don't have a lot to do you can always practise your black and white skin editing skills. Sounds like fun huh? Well, there's a lot of less fun things you could do. I'm about to take the subway into city from the office and buy a scent from The Body Shop, found another one that I like and it's a bit different from the one I already have. I'll show you tomorrow!
dinner cats dinner
For exactly one year ago Dad, Mom, my Brother and I drove to the Alps. To be more exact, Champoluc in Italy. It was my dad's 60ths birthday and he wanted to celebrate it with friends during a ski trip, he had always said "When I turn 60 I shall stand on a mountaintop in the Alps", and so he did. We had the absolut best weather on he's birthday too! Anyway, during that trip and our stay we had a 4 course dinner to enjoy every evening, this is what I ate all the 7 nights. There was only one dish I didn't like!
Anyway, I went to the golden housewarming yesterday, it was so much fun seeing so many familiar faces all at once! I didn't wear anything special, I just dressed in all the glitter I have here in Stockholm. However, tonight I'm cooking dinner with Kamilja who's taking care of a cat while the cats owner's away. I'm looking forward to meet the little fella!
from yesterdays shoot
A picture from yesterday, haha... not a good pic of my outfit. Anyway, I had flowy pants, kimono, a top and my lovely Dr Martens, everything in black of course. Well my pants did shimmer a little! I love those pants! I'm still deciding if I'm going to a party tonight or not, I'm in despair... noooo I'm not, I just gotta decide haha!
Sorry for late update guys. Assisted a photoshoot and shot some behind the scenes, I hope to show you soon. And now I'm just chillin' at home, went to the gym earlier so I'm pretty tired! I hope you have a great friday night whatever you might end up doing.
My place today, been retouching skin and clothes. Had my workout this morning so that I could hang with a friend this afternoon instead. I should start working out in the morning more often, it's much nicer and leaves the rest of the day free!
// Pictures from instagram, @stylebyellen //
Giving my blue eyes a little appreciation, it's one of the few things, on yourself, you can't see (no kidding?!) and is often the most beautiful part of a person. If you fall in love with someone's eyes you probably never fall out of love, because the eyes will never grow old! The second picture, well let's just say it's a part of my project to sneak in some color in Rebecca's black and white apartment he he, but fruits are beautiful and a yummy snack so I'll buy more soon... and that's how you kill two birds with one stone!
