Short as in Scandinavia or long as in the tropics, summers are the best. But sometimes not the best for our hair or skin. I have been using a lot of time searching and testing products that will help me to dimish the damages on my hair and skin that may have been caused by sea and the sun. That’s how it goes, you can’t avoid the fun things in life just because they may do some bad to hair and skin. But you can certainly get help from good products to fix it afterwards. Here I share my current favourites.
Bright and bold red is the colour of this season. The fiery tone just made a fashionable comeback and will light up your outfits. It can be in accessories or statement pieces, the power red is taking over. Here I selected my favourite and super affordable items to help you fill up your wishlist. Just click to get them.
I couldn’t name how much I have been learning about life with a baby in the last year. Although we hear a lot of advice, good practices and all sorts of opinions, the ones I value most come from the people that have been learning in the everyday life. Nothing like the routine to make us realize what is actually good or not. For this reason, I want to share with you some products me Mikkèl have been enjoying a lot lately.
This is the first time ever I wear a piece of clothes from Africa. To have it on and to look into the mirror caused me such a good feeling as if I felt a stronger connection with my style and my history. I want to invite you to love the work of this brand as much as I do. From the way they produce their clothes, to their history, you will want to be part of it. Check this out.
Romantic, edgy with Parisian vibes. That’s how I would define this look if you asked me. It is so good to see how this brand has been bringing younger and updated styles for the plus size market. I am proud to work with them and feeling so cute and trendy in this look. There is more you can do with the key piece in the look: the floral print plus size skirt. Check this out.
We woke up to an extraordinary sunny day in Oslo. It was really amazing. With a short summer you learn how the happiness of a simple sunny day. Before we got out of the door, the rain started pouring, washing off our plans of a full day at the beach. Not to worry, we got better things to do. Check this out.
It feels kind of surreal to think how fast things move. It also feels very crazy to try to make sense of all the love one can feel for a baby. Some weeks ago we had a naming day ceremony and party to celebrate baby Mikkèl and it was one of the most beautiful things ever. Here are pictures and some images of our little celebration.
Sometimes life is just simply about giving things a try. To experiment. To dare. To forget all the rules and ideas of ideal behaviour and just simply try. It is really just simple and requires just a try. That’s what I did and it felt good, really good. Let me tell you why.
Sometimes unexpected things turn out to be the best. It applies to diverse situations, from being friends with someone you didn’t expect to be or even to clothes you would not think to match well together. This is what happened to me some days ago.
It’s summer, the sun shines brightly in Oslo. It’s hard to describe with words the beauty of Norway in this time of the year. Ok, this country is pretty any time of the year. But during summer there are no lenses that can capture the real colours we see around here. Whether you spend summer in the city or somewhere in the west coast, every corner has a charm that makes us fall in love with this place. And I am so glad to be back to one of my favourite areas in town.
Pin up dress is a classic, this vintage looking piece is cool by itself. It’s a winner look. But for me? When I got this dress I immediately thought of how it could be worn it in a more modern way. Here is how we can do it.
Stop and take a deep breath. Shut down your thoughts for 5 minutes. It’s hard, isn’t? Ok, try 2 minutes then. I am serious. I just tried it now and guess what?
It has been a while I was looking for a shirt like this. Lightweight, comfortable, with the light blue stripes and embroidered flowers trendy look. Had to wait for a little to get one that would fit me, but guess what? Good things come for those who wait. hahahaha
One of my favourite parts of the summer is the special sales. Seriously. It’s possible to score so many gems for lower prices. Here is a selection of my favourite pieces with reduced price tags.
I love when fashion trends take the sports road and bring to us comfortable and modern looking pieces. Recently I found this sweater and have been wearing it almost every day. Isn’t summer you ask? Yes, it is. But it European summer can get quite chilly sometimes. So this lightweight sweater is a good one for this season. The colours, the texture and the shape… I love all about it. Especially in this outfit that I wore the other day. How would you wear it? Do you like the pieces I teamed up? Would you?
