“School girl jumper” inspired top, super long bell-sleeved blouse and velvety details – all in the same look. Isn’t this one a good example of how the runaway trends are translated into the everyday fashion we get in the fast fashions around the world?.
Lindex has been offering a variety of trendy pieces in larger sizes as it expanded their fashion concepts to “all sized” collections. The “Fall Fashion Heroes” for instance bring feminine trendy pieces up to size 54, making it possible for full figured ladies as myself to have more options when it comes to affordable fashion.
This autumn, with the “Fall Fashion Heroes” campaign, Lindex integrates larger sizes in all its fashion concepts. Now most of the pieces are offered in sizes up to 54. Their Generous concept, their former plus size line, is no longer available then.
It means Lindex is ahead in the curve of fashion and society development by taking the initiative of more inclusion and diversity. Among a few friends I raised the discussion in order to hear some opinions and it was said that to size up to 54 is not to go plus size at all, but I partly disagree.
It’s finally time that I can hare with you something I’ve been hardly keeping for myself (ok, some close people know it too) 😉
I am participating on the new edition of Masterchefs Norway. How exciting? I am so thrilled to see myself on TV together will all the amazing people in my group. The show premiers on Monday the 5th of september on TV3, in Norway. But here you can WATCH the episodes ONLINE! Yay!
It all happened so fast.
Lindex is setting examples for the fast fashion brands around the world. They are including larger sizes in their regular lines, offering now the same clothes for sizes XS to XL. It makes so much more sense. We all should be able to have the same choices of clothes. Many brands nowadays approach a concept of fashion democracy, positive self image and diversity, but many of them are not even close to actually apply the speech to their strategy/services.
Yes it’s true! I’ll be a mother of such a blessed boy. I feel lucky and very happy at the moment. So I would like to share with you here. Note: this is a detailed and honest post.
To summarize, it goes like this … Considering that by now you already know how babies are made, right? AHAHAHA. I am married and we have planned a baby for 2017. So until last February/March I was on birthcontrol and regularly having my period. I was in Brazil, in full swing, traveling back and forth, working hard and being very productive. During that time I haven’t felt any sick, just felt a lot of stomach acidity but did not know it was a symptom of pregnancy.
I got a bit suspicious when I did not have my period in March / April. I also had other symptoms, that I only recognize as symptoms now after confirming the pregnancy. Such as intestine not working regularly as usual, sensations similar to gases and, of course, bump bigger than usual, although I was eating healthy and being active as well – until I noticed a certain deflating in the rest of the body.
Then I tested when I arrived back in Oslo, wanted to do with my husband, my home. The pregnancy test was positive for 2 to 3 weeks. We were super happy! The next step was to go to my doctor – who suggested an ultrasound. This is where it all turns crazy!
It was early may and we booked the ultrasound. There the doctor talks to us, we begin the procedure, then he asks me “- Would you like to know the gender?”. Then I go like “Maaan! Advanced medicine here. You able to find the gender already in three weeks?” And he says, first things first, it’s a boy! and all in fine with him. By this this time, hubby and I were crying… Awwnn a boy?
Then the doctor adds that there is more to it? As if I could handle more, right? My heartbeats were very high and I was kind of afraid he would say I got twins!! He said that in fact it is only one baby, but my calculations were very wrong, like, really very wrong. It turned out our baby was bigger than 3 weeks (I really did not noticed it when I saw his picture in the ultrasound screen, since it was my first time seeing an ultrasound in life!).
So we found out that I had just turned 6 months far in my pregnancy! Maaaan, 6 months!!! Now I’m in the 32nd week and my buy is due to the middle of August.
What a blessing in our lives!! I’m still walking on clouds. This was actually the best thing that ever happened in my life.
I’m not the romantic type but in this situation I cannot help myself to get all emotional … I feel so good, so fullfilled. Every move he makes (and they are many) I am amazed. I never felt so complete. And I heard that after delivering the baby and the first look on his face in the most amazing time of your life, then you feel like a super-woman.
I’ve been reading a lot, learning a lot. I did all the tests so I know all is fine with him. He grows as expected, moves a lot too. I feel more tired than usual but still do quite a lot. I want to be active as much as I can, then a bit more
This “three months pregnancy” made me to realize that life takes its path despite of your plans. And in the end it all tends to work out for the best. Looking back I can see how things were developing in a type of preparation for my pregnancy, without me even realizing. Everything worked well, even when I thought it was going wrong.
The last six months were the most productive, fun and active that I ever had. If I knew was pregnant, I would not have accepted many invitations of new projects and would have been frustrated. Like I told you, I’m feeling the luckiest woman in the world.
From this post on I start to share more details on my (short) journey to become a mother. I want to thank all the messages of love and positivity I received when I gave the news in one of my live videos on Facebook.
