Self Reflection

Thought I would show my face on my blog again...

…because I can’t remember last time I did. And this might come as a shock to some of you at home, and to you who is interested in my style. Because this is a drastic change from the girl who left Norway to who I am now.

Who would have thought 3 years ago that I would stop abusing my hair with 1 bottle of hairspray monthly and over teasing it?

Now I hardly use anything. A little dry shampoo/dust it every now and then, a tiny spray of hairspray for hold. A little anti-frizzy spray to tame the crazy effect the english weather has on my hair. Oh, and absolutely no teasing anymore.

Who would have thought that? I certainly wouldn't.

Who would have thought 1 year ago that I would stop using fake lashes, tons of eyeshadow and a fat eyeliner?

Now I hardly use eyeliner any mire. In fact, I have only used eyeliner twice since the start of october. That’s over a month ago. I haven’t used fake lashes since the summer. Although I miss it sometimes, it is not something I want to wear every day anymore. And guess what, I have gotten more confident about my eyes.

 I don't feel like they are to small anymore.

I have in fact gotten more comfortable with my make-up free face due to more natural make-up. I feel more free, that I am more me than ever. That I have finally found myself, rescued myself from drowning in cosmetic and styles that doesn’t represent me.

I can still do gyaru inspired make-up if I want to, but it isn’t a style that define me any more. I love it. And I love my eyes. I also love having a soft and heathy hair. After all that teenage abuse it really deserve me growing up and becoming more mature.

Skull, feathers & heels~

From Tuesday when the weather was clear and sunny, today we can hardly see anything around us. We can see the mist traveling past the houses, its kinda weird but finny. At least we got two days with sun, so I don’t mind much. I got to wear my favorite denim shorts (the only one!) and my favorite tee, love how they look together.

Inspired by my lovely friend, Lele, I decided to try out a new hairdo – and wow how comfortable it is to wear! I absolutely adore how cute and chic it is, and how easy it is to make as long as you have a hair-donut to help you.

Leopard in the sun~

Sunny weather means that I can go outdoors and take outfit pictures, and its so much more fun! I have found two spots to use. Typical of me to find them right before I leave home. And, did I mention sunny weather? YES, it finally came yesterday. Must be the first time I wore my bikini and tanned for over a month.

That says it all about how bad the weather it has been.

Yesterday I decided to dress up some, and combined my asymmetrical skirt with a cropped top. Love how it turned out! Also tied a scarf around my hair, and putt my hair up in a high ponytail.

Dogs & Outdoors

Due to the lack of dressing up there has been more or less none outfit post coming from me this summer. The reason behind is because I am working as a cleaner for almost 5 weeks how, and have been set on dressing practical for work. I don’t want to wear my beloved shirts and ruin them at work. And I don’t think it’s properly to dress up in high-waisted shorts.

But today I was sick and tired of being practical so I wore jeans at work, and it went just fine! After work I decided to doll up a little in order to stay awake, and go outside to get some fresh air. I took my beloved camera with me and went walking around the lot snapping pictures and hunting for the perfect “photo set”. This place of course requires that there hasn’t been raining during the day. But at least I’m back~

And gosh – I love wearing my lovely dog print shirt from the 5×5 collection of Bik Bok.

Ethnic and graphic patterns

I still haven’t found the perfect spot for outfit pictures. The room isn’t fully organized yet and there’s stuff all around so it havent been quite easy to find one. I also forgot to recharge my SLR camera earlier, so these are taken with my old digital camera – hence the poor quality (in contrast to usual).

Anyways, pretty satisfied with my hair and make-up today~!

Originally wore a headband with feathers too, but I had to take it of before I got a headache. You can see pics of it on my Instagram :) Also, it’s been a while since last time I wore this dress. I wanted to be a bit ethnic and do a crazy combination with the pattern of the dress and the thighs which is kind of similar.

Going to bed early tonight, because I’m working from 7AM tomorrow! Have to get up early….Hng!

TeamLife and other animals~

Yesterday when I got ready to meet with a friend I felt a little summer-ish and sporty! So I opted for caps and shorts. Haven’t been wearing any of my capses in a while. I also put in almost every animal rings I have… One dragon, one owl, one elephant and one with leopard print. Almost felt like a zoo.

Anyways, I went out eating with a friend at a place we both love. We have been talking about it forever, so it was about time we did it. I am starting to notice that there is many things I’ll miss in this towm, and many people. Its going to be weird to NOT live here, which I have been for the last 3 years.

Silver Elephant

Yesterday I meet up with two old friends I havent seen in a while.

It was great, it’s lovely how it’s just like old times when we get to gether. First we ordered coffee at a café, I of course got my favorite chilli coffee. Then we went wandering around shopping, two of us doing so without buying because we were broke, and one of us shopping clothes for a music festival they both are going to attend to. Then one went home and I went eating and wandering around the city with the other. It was lovely!

So, basically I’m not broke, I just don’t want to buy anything just to get more to pack… But I just couldn’t stop myself when we came across a 2 for 1 sale at a store with lovely rings. So I got the two in the picture above for 80NOK. Love the silver elephant~
