I have been dreaming about this dress for a while..


This BEAUTIFUL dress, is so pretty! The dress is from Meghan Fabulous, and is called The Ryan Dress. The colours, the pattern, the design.... perfect! As you probelly have noticed by now, I absolutly love butterflies. (When I paint something, I almost everytime paint butterflies)

The price is unfortantly to high for me, but if you somehow have 1350 dollars to much in your bank account- you could allways make one of my dreams come true for my birthday on friday ;-)

You can buy the dress here

Have you got a dress you have been dreaming about?

And yes, I'm 19 years old on Friday, 27 march!

3 easy hair styles for spring/summer-09

I am sure a lot of you are wondering what hairstyles are popular this spring/summer? I am too! So I have been searching around for some inspiration pictures, just to get an ide of what's coming up!

My hair is damadged from trying to become a blond, so now I really should need a new haircut! Today I am thinking of going to the hairdresses to colour my grownout hair.. It's not looking really nice at the moment!

So, here is your hair inspiration! I hope one or two of the hairstyles will give you an inspiration for your own hair!

Floral hair decoration



Straight, curled, short or long - floral decoration on your hair is beautiful. It will bring you hair, face and clothes to life!

Tip:
You can buy cheap hairclips with exotic flowers and colours at for example, H&M.


Super straight hair



You will need a hair straightner and a good heat protector for your hair! There are a lot of great products to choose between, ask your hairdresser or someone at the Drugstore for recommandation!

Tip:
For leaving all you flyaways away + adding shine, I would say you should deffently try Biosilk!
Rub your hands together with a very small amount, and go trew your hair with it. This will keep flyaways away and make your hair smooth and silky straight!

Do not put serum in your roots, this will make it look greasy and that's not really the style you are going for.. I'm sorry to say, but to much of the good stuff will do the same. (But again, you will have your bottle for ages!!)


The center hair parts with body and bounce


Perfect for the natural look, bohem, school, beach +

This is the new straighten hair look, it's really simple to do! Section your hair at the middle and hair strengthen it. After straightening it, focus on creating some movement from the mid-lengst to the end with the straightner.

Tip:
To see how you can do it yourself, watch the video here


The half-up & Half-down



The perfect mix between wearing your hair back from your face but still wearing it “out.”

This hairstyle is popular because it shows off your neck - without necessarily showing off your ears.

Tip:
This hairstyle is perfect for the hippie dresses!



Which hairstyle is your favorite? What styles are you going for this season?
I would love to see a picture of your hairstyles, for more inspiration!

Should I keep on posting outfits?

Outfits from Topshop's webpage



Everytime I am in England, I normally go to Topshop to have a look at their clothes. Unfortantly, today I am sitting at school and I am not in England.. So I think it's great that Topshop has a website for us who are just looking! I recomman you to have a look, press here.

They have lots of cool shoes and accessories! These are two of the dresses I liked, I will post the other ones later on.

Get an organized wardrobe!

Orginization is the best way to get a tidy wardrobe. There are a lot of great ideas for making a organized wardrobe, Ikea has one of them!



This is a great organized wardrobe from Ikea. You can buy the wardrobe in pieces, so you get the perfect storage for your clothes, shoes and accessories.

There are a lot of different ways you can get your wardrobe organised. You don't have to buy a new wardrobe(!). I hope some of this tips will help you on the way!

Drawers
A great ide for putting your accessories;
belts, scarfs, braclets, hairbands or maybe socks and singlets!



Hangers
You can easly find a simple wardrobe, that's only a hanger. The only one I can think of that's international, is from Ikea. With this kind of hanger you can hang all your pretty dresses, skirts, jackets and shirts on. It is also great for hanging your jeans and belts on!

Boxes
A great idea to put all your small thing in! You can do like me - put your underwear and all small accessories in them.
Instead of having all your shoes haning around in the house, you can save the shoebox when you buy yourself a new pair of shoes.. Rapp nice giftpaper around the shoebox, and take a picture of the shoes and glue it the front. This way you will have all your shoes organised!


Inspiration picked up from Google..

Tips;
Make your own personal hanger! Buy wood-hangers and paint them in which colour you like. Glue on stickers, glitter or diamonds for a more elegant look. Tie a silk ribbon around the hanger and volĂ  - you have your own homemade hanger!

Later, I will tell you how you can get your earrings organised! It's creative, can be used as a picture on the wall (I won't tell you more yet!).


Thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a nice day!

Hair permanent - curls

Sometimes, curly hair can be really beautiful. For an expample, this girl on the picture!

I have friend that has naturally curly hair, but she allways straightens it - I'm trying to make her show off her nice curls!



I have hear that taking a curl-permanent (or whatever kind of permanent), damadges your hair alot. I would like to have big curls, so my hair gets more volum! But if it damadges alot, I surly should keep myself away from trying! (My hair has never been so bad, as it's now!)

Have you ever tried a permanent? Did it damadge your hair alot? How long did it last?

Get Serena's hairstyle from Gossip Girl

I love watching Gossip Girl! I recommand everyone to watch it, if your interested in fashion and hair - you can catch up with lots of inspiration! Watch all the episodes of Gossip Girl, here.

I have a love from Serena's hair, so I though I do a post to show you how you can get this hairlook too! If you know any other ways, please let me know!

If you have any ideas, please let me know! I try to make the design like you want it, as you are my readers =)

What do you think about the new design? Do you like the old one better?

Bikini/swimsuits from Victoria Secret



I'm thinking of ordering a bikini from Victoria's Sectret! They have so nice stuff there, it's amazing - specially the bikinis and swimsuits. I love their designs, it's not like buying one from H&M and seeing someone wearing the same as you at the beach!

Do you know about other websites, that sell special & pretty bikinis/swimsuits?

I really want to get a swimsuit sometime. They can look really nice and sexy, but have their negative sights too - You can't really tan in it, without getting the horrible white-vs.-brown skin lines. However, I think it looks more flattering on a skinny tummy, then it would on mine! So I guess that's why I have never got one.




What do you think about swimsuits? Do you know any tricks to hide your tummy from looking like pregnant?

What do you think about this hairstyle?


I think it would look really pretty for summer! If I will have short hair again, I think I will try something similar to this style!

If you have long hair;
Are you scared of cutting your long hair short? I am!

To you with short hair;
Do you miss having long hair?

MAC eyeshadow for green eyes

At the airport in Oslo, on my way to Germany, I had to stop and take a look at the MAC products in the taxfree! I talked to this nice makeup artist, that helped me find the products I was searching for.



I have eyes that look like a mix between green-blue and gray, so I never really know what colour I should choose. (However, I have found out that brown and gold are good matches!)

I wanted an eyeshadow for daily basis, but also for parties. She gave me some recomandations, but said Vex was the one she would have gone for.

(Later update with picture using Vex as day/party-makeup)

Vex is an eyeshadow-colour in beige that is great for green eyes, because it has pink and green pearls that makes your eyes even more outstanding! Wearing Vex under other eyeshadows can look really good, because it has this special frosty-shimmer to it.

Sadly, the Vex is only a limited edition! So if you really like this colour, I recommand you to get two or more of it ;-)

What colours do you think look good for green eyes?

Update from Germany trip

Hi guys! Sorry I haven't replied you comments, but I have been busy the last days.

On sunday I came home from my stay in Germany, I had a lovely time there! It's sad being home again, I want to go back right away!

I have bought some makeup and cosmetics from MAC and The Body Shop, that I will try and write about it later. I have to pack my bags out first!
Matthias
helped me find lots coconut-creams, as Matthias and Oliver knows I love the smell of it! I also got the mascara from Helena Rubenstein with the leopard patter!



Some of the stuff I got from MAC:
Eyeshadows, fluidline in Blacktrack, brush cleanser + a brush

The Body Shop products:
Eyeshadow, blending brush, hair cure, hair serum, showergel + lipgloss

As I love Germany so much, I'm thinking of going there as an Au Pair after my summerholiday!! If you know someone who seeks for an Ai Pair around Stuttgart/Boeblingen/Sindelfingen, please let me know! I have already heard from three familys who are interested, so I think this will be a great experience!
