new spring nails
Made new nails today, just something simple but still fun with color! I've never had my nails done by anyone else but me, why go to a professional when I have myself? ;) So much cheaper haha! Anyhow, it's so nice with flowers in Rebecca's apartment, it brings some colour and a feeling of spring in here!
The sun has been shining in Stockholm the whole day and I've been out walking! I hope to get some more freckles on my nose and cheeks soon!
bts from today
Two pictures from this morning. Today it was just me, MUA Alexander and the model Wilma. Sometimes, especially when it runs smoothly and you already know exactly what you want, a small team is the best. I would say that I prefer smaller teams, it's fun with big ones to when you have a lot going on, but today was perfect with only the three of us. I've been on my feet since 07:00 this morning. I'm pretty tired now, as usual after having a photoshoot, so no I won't be partying tonight I think.
Enough about that, today it's my mothers birthday! Happy birthday mom! I hope you have a wonderful day in Malmö with daddy! I'll see you on monday!
I have my last photoshoot tomorrow, the last one concerning my exam work! I've been preparing for it the whole day, walking all over town instead of taking the subway. Right now I'm cleaning the apartment and then I'm off to my last errand. After that I'll finally get to have the rest of the evening to myself!
Tingeling Tingeling, two pictures from last year in may at a fantasy masquerade! I had a hard time getting the flowers of my face, I had them glued to my face with eyelash glue haha! Today I have a few errands to run and later I'm meeting a friend for the Swedish fika!
1992's crop top
I just love this 90's crop top from the movie Singles, which is from 1992 by the way. I saw it the other day when I couldn't fall asleep! I went to the gym this morning and later I had a walk and lunch/fika with a friend at a really nice place I can't remember the name of... but it's outside of the city at Djurgården. Anyway, I'm about to cook me some dinner. I'll probably watch an episode of Game Of Thrones and work with my exam work tonight. So much to do in so little time... wäääääää.
ben & jerry's
The cue for the annual free ice cream at Ben & Jerry's was crazy long so Gustaf, Niklas and I decided to go and buy ice cream instead, Ben & Jerry's of course, at a Supermarket and share. Above you can see the problem we had with finding spoons to eat with haha... but we got it all down in our tummies anyway! Well well enough about ice cream, I'm soon off to Gamla Stan to look at the Swedish Hockey finale (I think?!)! Växjö Lakers, my hometown team, plays in the finale so it's pretty exciting! (Edit: I'm not that into Hockey as you may have noticed... it was one of, maybe, 7 seven games, they have 3-5 more to play!)
Had a lunch meeting today with my friend and MUA Alexsandra. We ate at Vidgårda and I had a veggie burger, so yummy. Although, I would prefer a halloumi burger instead of the ones they are serving now, would have been so much better! However, a great day today with both sunshine, wind and little rain. A little bit of everything, typical April weather here in Sweden!
Two "really nice" pictures of me at Espresso House.... haha
stockholm spring time
Been out walking a lot the last couple of days, and the spring that I've been longing for is finally here! Beautiful Stockholm!
Sorry guys for a late update, and I totally forgot to take a photo of the two new beauties from Monki. I actually went to the gym earlier today and after that I had a nice cup of coffee with a friend, which I just got home from. So you'll have to settle with this picture I drew the other day. I should probably call it "big mouth", or something like that...
lace and lingerie
photo creds to tumblr or something
I have a little obsession, at the moment, concerning lace lingerie, but only the comfy ones. Monki have so many beautiful bras at the moment that I love, totally. I bought 2 new super comfy and lovely bras from Monki just the other day, I'll show you tomorrow which ones!
I've been walking back and forth to Södermalm today in this wonderful weather, oh well a little wind and only a touch of sunshine, but still warm!
homemade almond milk
A video I made last week on how to make your own almond milk! So delicious and totally raw, vegan and gluten free! Watch in HD, and well... sorry for bad WB, I just didn't have the energy to get it all right in Premiere, I'm not totally fimiliar with that program... yet!
back and forth
Traveling back to the big city of... Sweden today, haha... all of this going back and forth is making me tired! I hope to get my own place soon...
// Pictures from Portugal //
I'm so in the mood for traveling outside of Sweden, but instead I'm just heading back to Stockholm tomorrow afternoon. I'll actually miss being home in Växjö!
easter food and look
// Shirt and Trousers, Monki // Necklaces, HM, not the heart though! //
I shot some photos yesterday when the food started to take place in the kitchen, and that is just half of it haha... so much good food!
// Cus I'm the nerd you always thought I was //
Yes, I got it a few days ago! And I'm playing it on my MacBook! Today we're traveling to Öland for Easter celebration! Oh I'm craving for herring so bad right now! Anyway, we're just staying for one night. My brother's in Rome with his girlfriend Alma, not jealous at all... so it's just me and my parents plus a lot of other friends! Happy Easter and I hope you get to enjoy loads of candy!
colours and glitter
Got my hands, and the kitchen haha, dirty today, well not really... more like glittery and colorful! Anyway all of this is for my exam work and I am not done with it yet, not even close... I have some more editing to do, even a photoshoot left... and some more colouring!
NEC 27" SpectraView Reference 272 Display
My new screen and where I'll be spending my time this week. It's a NEC 27" SpectraView Reference 272 Display, bought at Scandinavian Photo. It's a pricey display, 19.850sek. However, I didn't pay that... because I had a student discount so I bought it for 17.666sek, I'm so poor right know. BUT totally worth it, and I really needed a screen made for retouchers etc.
Mom and I had a little lunch/fika at Ör's Lantcafé today! Such a cosy, beautiful and old café outside Växjö in Ör. I think I was around 8-9 years old the last time I was there (I remember how I bought a beautiful old package of paper dolls, I still have them somewhere!). I promised myself to visit more frequently in the future... more than 10 years between every visit is not acceptable haha! Sorry for many pictures, but I just had to show you this beautiful café!!
redhead girl and flowers
Oh what I missed this girl. My redhead! I haven't seen her since January!!! She's been living life in Costa Rica and California, jealous much? You bet! I'm so happy so see her again. We have a few plans this week, so excited! Right now I'm writing the last sentences on my project plan before sending it in for some guidance! After that I'll finally get to retouch my photos and listen to some jazz! Oh yeah!
behind the scenes, last shoot
// Pictures by damnsure@instagram, Tony Ottosson the stylist of this shoot! //
A few behind the scenes from the shoot I had this weekend. I can't show you guys much more until my whole exam work is done, in the beginning of may! Today I'm traveling to Växjö, I'm so excited to go home and have a week with my family. I really need it. I'm also a little ecstatic to finally get to sit down with all of the pictures and start to retouch them! I hope you have a great monday!
banana pancakes in stockholm
Rebecca and I just had banana pancakes, a ton of 'em! I'm so full right know. My tummy hurts pretty bad. As usual, I hate to say that... well I fell asleep around 06:00 this morning. I really really hope for a good nights sleep tonight! I haven't had my beauty sleep in days. This has never happened to me before, not to this extent anyway :(.
THE PERFECT HEALTY BANANA PANCAKE
To make yummy banana pancakes you need 2 ingredients. Bananas and eggs! For 1,5 bananas you need 2 eggs, if you have really small bananas it should be 1 banana 1 egg. Anyway, mix the humongous amount of ingredients together in a bowl with a hand blender. Then you just need a pan and butter or oil! It's as simple as that! Remember to make small pancakes since they tend to break if you make them to big! Enjoy with whipped cream, berries like raspberry, blueberry, strawberry etc, syrup, fruits, nuts, honey, cottage cheese or whatever you like!
// Alexsandra, the MUA //
Had a photoshoot today, left home 10:30 and just got home. I'm so happy with the pictures, and my team was wonderful! I'll probably fall of my chair at any moment, only got 4 h of sleep tonight... don't understand why I can't fall asleep :(
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?
// Top, Zara // Jeans, Lee // Shoes, Nowhere // Sunglasses, Asos //
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!
