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

[[Jacket-Gift//Shirt-BikBok5x5//Jeans-Weekday//Shoes-Ebay/MaxStar]]

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 5x5 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~

Being green~

[[Cardigan-H&M//Shirt-H&M//Shorts-GT//LipsticK:VeryViolet-Cubus]]

As I promised myself, I dressed up properly today! I also snapped some shorts. After watching some episodes of Criminal minds...Meaning that I haven't done what I'm really supposed to do - Packing.

Anyways, after sitting and pondering on what to wear I suddenly decided I wanted to be green. Like, really green. So one of my beloved old cardigan finally got used again. I think I've had the cardigan and that shirt for about 4-5 years. Really. The shirt has been my favorite for ages, the cardigan has been both hated and loved. I haven't always had a clue on what to do with it...

but now I got a lovely mint green shorts that fits it. Yay~

And to avoid becoming to green, I decided to wear my violet lipstick as a contrast. I fixed my nails to, choosing to do a little twist on the colors. Lately I've just had one color at a time. Need to go back to what I love - duo colors! Scary to see how much the mint green nail polish fits the shorts.

Only problem left - which shoes to wear?!! Need to figure that one out, as I am going out to eat with a friend later.

A look back at April and May…

Finally made a collage of my outfits for April and May.

Its been two pretty much outfit-less blogging months. I have no idea what happened... I went from 3-5 to just 1 outfit post per month. And I have no one from june! I need to do something with that!

I like what I see tho, less black and more colours~! and many different hairstyles, but I am totally loving the side pony tail. I am going to be working it in many different ways this summer.

Now I need to get started on packing. I need to figure out how to pack all of my stuff and get it north to my parents. But I have no clue how!

Purple bohem~

It was quite hot outside yesterday in contrast to how low the temperature have been so far in May. Usually we're spoiled with even hotter temperatures. Not this year. Anyways, since it has been all sunny and nice I got quite inspired by my friends idea of how to do the boho style. Meaning, more colors and such. I like that idea, I havent been all crazy for all the boho'ness in the stores so far. But with colors, it might work.

I finally got to wear the t-shirt with such lovely pastel colored print with my light purple shorts! Been thinking about that for ages. And I am so happy to wear my favorite khaki green jacket.

But, of course its chillier outside today. My typical luck with my birthday (May17th) and any birthday plans I make. Oh well, friends, gifts and good mood is going to make up for that tonight~! I think it's the first time I seriously have celebrated my birthday with an actual party in T-town on the night before. I am so looking forward to it.
