Darker, Bolder & Warmer

The october issue of Happie Nuts is seriously warming and inspire me. Finally the fashion has started to take route towards colder days, showing more of warmer and thicker fabrics. It still shows a lot of short shorts and skirts, tops without arms and ect.

What this issue also shows is bolder and bigger patterns, more contrast between black and white. More use of contrast between high waist and edgy cuts contra girly details. The colors have gotten  deeper and darker, and the shoes has gotten bolder. I guess Lady Gaga is right, a girl is as hot as the shoes she choses.

I love the before/after pages, which really shows how the fashion has changes. Even the hairstyles has changes, less curls more waves. Its seems to be more in with center separation and no fringe or a side fringe.

When it comes to make-up it looks to me that grey and brown colored eyeshadow still rules, but the whole look is slightly lighter than before.

Happie Nuts issues always inspire me a lot~

Details On The Brain

I recently blogged about time passing by like a storm, but today has been a slow day. Every time I felt like I had worked for hours I would look at the clock and see that only 5-10 minutes had passed by. Still, when the school closed and working hours where over, time had yet again managed to do a sneaky jump. So weird, and very very playful, time is.

Still, I had a quite slow morning. Spent the first hours just slowly preparing to wake up, eating break fast and reading k-pop news. No, I don’t read the news paper or check the news on internet as I drink my morning coffee. It’s k-pop all the way through my zips, baby. Okay, some J-rock every now and then. Then I go on trying to decide what to wear, and it was quite hard this morning because I wanted to wear my green jeans no matter what.

These are my “Problem Jeans”, or at least what I decided to label them. I hardly wear them, but I can’t throw them away because in my eyes they’re awesome. With the right coloured t-shirt, or with that perfect lose jumper. The only problem has been that I don’t have any of those, until now.

This is one of my newest purchases once again, went with Lele to H&M one day and just couldn’t leave without this. Because it was leopard patterned, grey and is made of such comfy textile is pure joy to wear it. Oh, and it’s loose so it match up with my problem jeans easily! Two pieces of comfy clothes going hand-in-hand. About time!

This outfit is the perfect example of how much of a detail freak I am. I have white nail polish, earrings and there’s a white chain on my necklace. Which there’s also a green one + that hair pin with a green bow matching with my jeans. At last I’m wearing a pair of grey nerd glasses who matches my top and the gray pair of shoes I wore today. Detail freak, I tell you.

It's Kinda Dangerous

Time seems to have the habit of  suddenly taking double jumps over hours now and then. Sometimes its all right, other times it’s the last drop before it all falls over the edge. For me, this time, it was a happy fact that I had managed to concentrate on work so much I didn’t notice minutes flying by. Due to my recently fuss over not being able to concentrate enough, this is something that made my day a whole lot better.

Oh well, did I ever mention that I’ve fallen hard for the colour, or non-colour some eyes, WITHE. Yes, white is Love. I never predicted that I would do so, it’s the worst colour ever when you think about cleaning, it’s the easiest to ruin, and it’s just so weird. Grey and white seem to be my favorite colours to dress in these days. No wonder my last buys has been either one or both of those colours.

Yes, that is one of my newest purchases. With my addiction to harem pants how could I let a chance like that pass by? Grey harem pants with leopard pattern is now one of the treasures in my closet. As much as I am addicted to white, I’m equally addicted to leopard patters. It’s just my thing. You know, someone collects Mario stuff, others hello kitty, I collect nerd classes and stuff with leopard print. Preferably fashion items of course.

Oh, I just love the back of this top and the cute little text “Love Target”. These two pieces of clothing’s is definitely one of my best buys from Galstar. It’s kinda dangerous getting hooked on clothes you can purchase over internet. It took me 5 min from deciding to buy, check out and pay for those pants. I never will regret it.

19th of April – Military or Geek?

I am so thorn between two different styles lately. I am really hooked on military colours and elements. Like Khaki green, I can’t put it down in words how much I love this colour! White, Grey and Black is also great colours to dress in, and lately I’ve been starting to like brown. I don’t need to describe military elements do I? Buttons, shoulder pads, thorn jeans and more~

But then we have my love for this geeky school girl/boy look. Which I’ve always have been taking in elements of in my style. Like nerd glasses, I just can’t live without them. Or suspenders which is a great detail over t-shirts or other tops. And of course the look you get when you put whatever you’re wearing above down in your jeans or pants. So I squealed a bit when I downloaded May’s issue of Popteen and found a lot of this geeky look~

Ah, so cuuute~ I’m beginning to realize that I need jeans shorts WITH suspenders. I need more shorts which actually fit my body form a bit better. Well, it isn’t summer yet so I could probably prioritize jeans before shorts.

So now the big question is: can you dress geeky & military inspired at the same time? Can I work both of the style, or will it split my wardrobe and give me style issues again?

4th of April – Love Na Na Na Na~

I don’t believe its meant for me to have time to live a normal life this week. I’ve lost so much time on my project by being sick, and now I’m gonna lose the whole next weekend to~ It’s a happy event, my student organisation is going on a trip, mostly to celebrate ourselves, so I don’t mind. Still, I’m feeling the stress coming.

Well, just to stress down a bit I made myself a cup of tea and downloaded some new fashion magazines. Found some lovely inspiration~ Fell in love with a new magazine, Blenda. Also got the hold on Scawaii hair arrangement book, and what did I see? Lots and lots if braiding styles. Who would have known? Coincidence? I found it funny. Guess I have to learn some new styles!

2nd of April – Tomboy ME

Oh noes! I was supposed to make this update before midnight, but then I totally forgot about it. I’m not even a little busy, this is a totally boring saturday because I’m a bit feverish. I’ve tried to read a book but I just keep on falling asleep, and I’ve tried to work on my school project but it’s kinda hard staying focused. It’s much easier to watch music videos and spam twitter aparently~

So yeah, I’m sorry to everyone that has to endure me spamming their twitter feed with complains and weird feverish humor. My humor when sick is totally stuuuupido. Anyways, I’m sick but still good enough that I feel like I have to do stuff. It’s kinda annoying. And since I’ve kept falling asleep friday seems so long a go but it was yesterday. Which is kinda annoying too.

I was supposed to blog about how much I love braiding my hair even more now that I got my undercut back~ It stands out even more now when it’s short again.

I really like the diversity this haircut gives me, and that it’s still a bit unique after almost a year. Of course, there’s a lot of people with undercuts, sidecuts and so on. But I’ve hardly seen people with undercut and a straight fringe like mine. Also, I used to change hair style rapidly before so it’s kinda surprising that I’ve settled with this now. It definitely has to be because of the diversity of it.

I really should have had some black letter boots, similar to military boots to this outfit. It would definitely made it 100%. Still loved this outfit and its tomboy look~ I find it a bit difficult to match up this top to other pants than these. I really need more versions of harem pants~ Some in different colours, and I want some in patterns to~

LOL, fever is babbling too much I’m gonna stop nao~

15th of March – With Fur on the head!

Well, it’s another busy week but I’m back at school and it feels a bit good. It’s project collaboration week with the first year students and IRL clients~! Although I’m satisfied with being back at school I kinda miss my internship place. I forgot to tell you, but they were so kind and gave me this bracelet as a thanks for the help. I wish the period was longer than two weeks, I could have learned so much more by being there longer~

Moving on, I’ve been waiting for days for this order to arrive that was shipped on Monday last week. My previous experiences told me that I would have it before the weekend but no, I was disappointed again and again when I checked my post box. Not today, it had finally arrived~!

I am totally satisfied with my purchase once again, Galstar has so many awesome clothes that just fit my style good. And look, white and grey? The colors I love the most at the moment. I also once again really surprised how soft and comfortable the textiles are~ Here’s how they look on:

Luuuuuve them~ Now, I really need to purchase some short singles. At least to match up with the grey top, which I am so looking forward to matching up with my harem pants. Well, need to check my budget? But honestly I’m doing fine, went over 400 NOK in ++++ last month. Which I’m really surprised by because I purchased a lot (clothes, yoga mat, step counter, make-up +).

10th of March – A Night Of Nothing~

Tonight when I got home after work I decided to just have a whole night of doing absolutely nothing~ So I’ve spent my night drinking tea, spamming twitter and downloading magazines. So yeah, been going through some new editions of Jelly, Happie Nuts and Popteen to find some inspiration~

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

So here’s a bunch~ So, according to my plan I was supposed to be in bed for 10 minutes ago. I don’t what to be so tired at work tomorrow as I was today. Anyways, it’s the last day of my internship tomorrow, and it’s a bit sad. No, it’s really sad! I’ve enjoyed these two weeks a lot~ I really like the place I’ve been at. Knowing the office, it’s CakeFriday, so it won’t be that bad~ G’nite~

Been listening to this every night~ Ryeowook’s voice is pure love!

15th of February – Badest Female Seoul City Ever Had

Right now there’s two women in my life that rocks my world. They are both unique in fashion style, and how they portray themselves as artists. In my opinion, Korea don’t need any of Lady Gaga, Ke$sha or Rihanna. They got Narsha, and they got the fantastic females of 2ne1, and the badest of them, CL~

CL <3

Narsha <3

Just super strong, sexy and inspirational females. I’m addicted to CL’s make-up style, and I love to do my eyeliner like her. I think she’s the reason why I keep cutting my bangs like that. And she’s definitely the reason why I want biker jackets and awesome coloured clothes. I’ve fallen in love with Narsha’s style quite recently and haven’t tried to put any of her style into mine. But I really want to try, because I love how she uses the eyeliner to create an illusion of where her global line is, and it make’s here eyes BIG~~

She’s so pretty in this Video. My friend think she’s Lady Gaga’s lovechild, I say that Narsha is way above Lady G. Inspired by the queen maybe, but she’s quite different from her. I loooove her make-up~

I haven’t watched this video until now, and guess what ~ I love it~! Park Bom is really gorgeous in dark-colored hair, btw. Cl and Minzy is so fucking energetic in this video its having a really positive effect on my mood. Yes, I  loove Cl in this <3

4th of February – Epicness & Nervous Shopping

Oh, I feel like I should be updating my blog with something utterly amazing right now. IDK what that thing could be, it’s just the feeling I got. Oh it could be the amazing party SOFAT had yesterday. I was sober the whole night and had a lot of fun. I can’t for the life of my get why I didn’t bring my camera with me. Or why I didn’t take a picture of my outfit at least. Or my make-up. I LOVED both of them. And apparently some people at the party did to.

I got a lot of compliments about my style and some also mentioned my blog. I am flattered really~! So maybe that’s why I’m sitting here feeling that I should give something in return for such amazing words I got last night? One thing is for sure, compared to yesterday this friday feels pretty empty. It actually feels like sunday in my head and I don’t like it at all..

Lol, I am THIS close to updating more inspiration pictures, but I am not going to. That’s what I created tumblr for! Duh. So what to fill this entry with? Gosh, I need to start taking pictures! Know I know, I have for some time now wanted to buy some tops from GALSTAR’s rakuten shop but I never manage to choose colour or which piece to buy first. Because, I can’t purchase them all at once, it would  be expensive. And even if I could afford it I kinda want to try it out first.

I like it in khaki, but I love how the print is metallic on the black one!

The white one is sold out, and the other two will be soon~

I originally wanted the navy one but it’s sold out, which really doesn’t bother me because navy just doesn’t seem like my color.

Then I wanted it in white, but it seem less like Union Jack than the rest. Gray or Black?

This one I saw today, and I fell in love with the design! Maybe white?

I love the open back on this one~ Think I like it in grey the most…

Now that I’ve made a summary of it I see that maybe I should buy the item that’s almost sold out. I really want it, I just have to dare purchasing it. It’s so scary shopping from a site for the first time! It’s also funny how almost everything I want in either black, white or grey. I think I’ve fallen in love with those colours. I’m not about bright colors any more. Just contrast and patters!
