Gordon is an unexpected friend, not until the last day of the first term did I get to know him. How? He came with me to my first Brazilian ever. Unexpected friend, unexpected event, but what you can expect from him is a LAUGH! He just needs to push his lips together and I burst out laughing. He is smart, funny and well.. attractive (that hair!!). See for yourselves:
We’re so FABULOUS!
You might have heard her name, you might have seen her. But you don’t know her, the way I do. The most generous, kind-hearted, diplomatic friend you can have. Exudes beauty and kindness. I am lucky to have her in this stressful environment when you can kind of loose yourself a little. She is there. There because she wants to, because we can talk sporadically on the phone, laugh outrageously til we pee a little or have stomach pains. There is one other person who make me laugh like that, by just being him.
I don’t think she knows how much she means to me, so this is my pursuit to be emotional and open about my feeling, (this will make (my part time HUR-KÄNNS-DET therapist) happy).
I just launch this thing with Modegallerian where I can recommend shopping tips for customers and also for my potential readers to get my sense of style. This will hopefully increase my blog statistics, cause I have noticed a drop since I stopped blogging. But some keep coming back and I don’t want to disappoint you with no new content. So Today is a day for you. Expect 3 new posts today =) just for you

Some of you might know, some are just shocked. I changed my hair, I got extensions. It was a while ago, but I have been superbusy so I haven’t posted here in a while. In an audacious attempt to revive the blog I am going to bombard you with amazing outfit pictures. I will try my best to update every other day. xx

In Sweden, Eurovision is a big deal. We all gather around the television, preferably 6+ people, drink, eat and sing along. It’s a bonding and social experience. Since this is my first time away from home for Eurovision I started to come to a devastating realization people in other countries don’t give a shit about Eurovision. We searched for bars that featured the main event of the week , stupid us, we reasoned if they show every minor football game, they are most likely to show Eurovision. (reasonably no?) NO! We had to find a Swedish bar to see Eurovision and the three of us (Gordon&Iris) were the only attentive audience…
Please people, tell me you see the similarities in these two winners. Both female Scandinavians having the same approach in their artistry (aka dance weird on stage…)
The winning concept:
Be female, be barefoot on stage, wear flowy dress, be slightly awkward but utterly adorable = Winner of Eurovision.
Loreen 2012 for Sweden
Emmelie de Forest 2013 for Denmark.
This outfit post is important for two reasons, first it’s been a while since I posted an outfit picture (actually it’s been a while since I posted anything on the blog really..) But secondly and more importantly it’s the first time I have used Photoshop to edit my pictures. I am super proud and excited. I know it’s not perfect as of now, but image… !!! SO COOL!
Jumper-Weekday, Skirt-Nowhere, Shoes-Dr.Martens, Sunnies-H&M.
I bought this Nowhere skirt during Christmas but it’s been too cold to wear. I can’t wait for it to be warm enough in London to go around with legs bare. You wouldn’t believe because of my skin color that I feel like I need to tan, but trust me. If you haven’t met the sun in over 6 month, it doesn’t really matter who you are, you are pale. That vitamin D is crucial to making skin look healthy and beautiful.
Did I mention I love MAC? No? Because I have never used it before. I was completely oblivious t the magic the lip pen create. I bought the matte red lipstick and the Cherry lip pencil to create this look. See the whole outfit later.
In the sprit of the black and white theme I have going here, I want to post something that every fashionista can look forward to!
I have a true love for all that is new, cause it brings a level of excitement and anticipation of the future. This upcoming artist makes me boom box burst (or more like vinyl record in his case). I bought his debut album on the day of. He’s been noticed by Vogue, featured in GQ’s “Most Stylish Men of the Week” and Elle’s “Bright Young Things”. There is a lot of pressure for the 23-year-old New Zealand musician Willy Moon, but I’m sure he won’t disappoint.
Due to the theme of my latest project I felt a slight obligation to expose my inspiration, my muse and a personal favorite; Janelle Monroe. She does music like no other current female musician, with very little skin exposure to promote narrow-minded-marketing-sex-sells-strategies, she utilizes her uniqueness, phenomenal dancing skills and stellar fashion sense. Also, the fact that she can sing and songwrite is a positive, even though we all know it is not a necessity to make it in the music industry nowadays.
One of the most pleasurable moments is seeing your work in front of your eyes, in motion. To debut my first styling video I set up a Youtube account for future projects, events and tutorials. I am going to inhibit myself before I promise too much, keep in mind I am limited with time (time flies by so fast in London) and will try to juggle all the balls at the same time to the best of my abilities. Nonetheless I really enjoyed this shoot and wanted to share it with you, do me a favour and share it with someone too.
Monochrome is the key trend at the moment and there was no question in my mind that I had to make a shoot asap.
The fact is, I am a make-it-work, think-fast-on-my-feet kind of person, so when the modeling agency unprofessionally canceled my two models less than 24 hours before the shoot, I had to think of a solution. Fast. The best thing I could do at this point is to multi-task, meaning I was a substitute model and the fashion director of the shoot. It was the first time I was put into that kind of situation and I managed quite well if I can say so myself. However I will try my best to avoid being a model, I’m the girl behind the camera, making magic happen.

Things change all the time nowadays. It is not news that I wake up 05:14 almost every morning. Don’t ask me why 05:14, but it gives me consistency. However I can’t help to feel tired, especially when things constantly change and things pile up and the only thing that remains the same is I’m still one person. My biggest wish is to duplicate myself, for many reasons, but probably the biggest reason to be back home in your arms. And that is my wish for today.
Everyone, whether into fashion or not, knows that accessories are the it items to pull off an outfit. Look how these fashionistas use accessories to show off at London fashion week.
