Copenhagen Fashion Week SS19
2018-08-10 09:29:54.137.jpeg

Get ready for some photo spamming, I have so soo much to share from Copenhagen Fashion Week. This is the second time I am attending Cphfw, and it just keeps on getting better and better. I attended almost all of the shows, and I got to see some of my favorites like Stine Goya and Ganni. Me, Andrea and Dina travelled down the night before the madness began, Rune and Nnenna came the day after. It was amazing being there with so many of my closest friends, and even though it was the warmest it has ever been in Copenhagen, we still managed to have so much fun. As always, airport attire is just as important as any other outfit during fashion week, so here is what I wore while traveling:

Wearing Acne Studios blazer, FWSS t-shirt, Isabel Marant jeans, Balenciaga sneakers and Truss bag.

The first show of Copenhagen Fashion Week was Birgitte Herskind, which was held at the Nimb Hotel rooftop. She showcased some amazing showpiece bathing suits and matched them with cowboy hats and boots. I need every piece of swimwear from this collection right now! The next show was Blanche. We got to see familiar silhouettes with fun twists in classic colors.

After Blanche, I ran over to the next show which was the Mykke Hofmann presentation. After that me and some friends sat down at Sticks’n’Sushi for a quick bite. My favorite is the Pink Alaska, which is salmon with philadelphia.

Like a kid in a candy store! Deeply regretting not purchasing more earrings here, but I went for the red hoops in the photo to the right. After some quick shopping it was time to head over to Résumé. The show was inspired by Clueless, and I loved it! The colors and the patterns are so me. The location was fun as well.

The next day started with breakfast at Atelier September with Andrea, Dina and Silje. We then jumped in a cab and headed over to the J.Lindeberg show. The collection was sporty, but at the same time classic with a twist. My favorite look was the classic suit, where the pants were cut to knee length and combined with high socks and chunky sneakers. We then went to the Morten Ussing show which was beautiful as always.

After a quick change we drove out to the Holzweiler show, which actually is a Norwegian brand. The location was so nice, and the collection really represented Norway in a good way! The following show was Stine Goya, who is one of my favorite designers. I was so lucky to be seated front row, so I got to really see the collection up close. Captured is one of my favorite looks, it is soo me!

After the Stine Goya show, we went home to freshen up before heading to the Glossier event. We were so fortunate to be gifted some of the Glossier products that have been such a big hype lately, and I must say that I have used the lip balm everyday since. After Glossier, me and Rune went to the Samsøe Samsøe dinner, which was so much fun.

The next day started with Hofmann Copenhagen, and it turned out to be one of the best shows during fashion week. The styling was incredible, and they played with prints in such a fun and cool way. I need to get me some sports glasses asap. Following up was the Munthe show, and right after that the By Malene Birger show.

Then it was time for Designers Remix, and after that was Lovechild 1979. We then headed out to the off schedule show called “Brøgger” which was really inspiring and colorful. Unfortunately I didn’t take any photos there, but you can see a clip in my Youtube video from Copenhagen Fashion Week at the bottom of this post.

Then it was time for the show that I was most excited to see, Ganni. I love how Ganni is becoming more and more edgy. The show was so cool featuring some classic rock songs and an amazing location. The mountain boots is one of the biggest trends this season, and it seems like it will last until the next season as well. After the Ganni show, I went back to the hotel for a quick change and then out to dinner with some of my friends. We had the best nachos at Café Norden before heading to the last show of Cphfw, Saks Potts.

An Instagrammers Guide to: Palma
C5EE9F81-38DF-4AAD-B807-D92066C2F9B3.jpeg

I enjoy traveling. That is why I decided to start this series called "An Instagrammers Guide to". I often find, when searching for information on new destinations, that guides that are not too "touristy" are impossible to track down. I would not go to the length of calling my guides not touristy, because in fact: they are. BUT (!!) I will say this: My guides are made for people who want to enjoy a city or destination from all perspectives. 

This is the third guide in the "An Instagrammers Guide to"-series. Click here to read about London, and here to read about Stockholm.

Where to eat

Cappuccino
Type of restaurant/pricing: Breakfast & Lunch, mid range.
Location: San Miquel, Passeig Marítim & Palau March.

"I got a recommendation by a lovely girl on Instagram about this café-group called Cappuccino. They have multiple locations all over Palma, but also in other big cities. They serve everything from Avocado toast, pizzas, salads, freshly pressed juices and delicious coffees. Me and my sister loved sitting here while listening to accordion, people watching and relaxing out feet from all the walking around". 

Amorino
Type of restaurant/pricing: Italian gelato, mid range. 
Location: Plaça de Weyler, 11, 07001 Palma

"I must admit that I have a sweet-tooth, and whenever I am in a city where Amorino is located, I always make sure to drop by. There is nothing better then a fruity italian gelato shaped like a rose with a macaroon on top. I always go for the raspberry and the chocolate flavor, because I am boring like that". 

Ritzi
Type of restaurant/pricing: Italian, high range. 
Location: Carrer de Sant Joan, 6, 07012 Palma

"Where the pasta is good and the service is not. If you plan on going here I would defiantly book a table in advance and make sure it's on the lower level inside of the restaurant. The atmosphere is not so good on the second floor. The pasta on the other hand, is amazing". 

Bon Vent
Type of restaurant/pricing: Beach bar, low range. 
Location: Can Pastilla beach.

"One day, me and my sister wanted to try out a new lunch spot near the beach since we had often just eaten at the closest restaurant we could find. We walked quite far down the beach and suddenly stumbled upon Bon Vent. The vibe there was just so amazing, it was like St. Tropez with a touch of California vibes mixed with the atmosphere of a Mexican beach café. The nachos I ordered was so sooo good, with an unexpected drizzle of honey! We came back one more time during our trip, because how could we not?".

S'Olivera tapas & restaurant
Type of restaurant/pricing: Café, mid range. 
Location: Carrer San Francisco de Sales, 54, 07004 Palma

"Another place that don't have good food, it does not have good service either. But as an Instagram obsessed individual like ourselves, we appreciate the decoration, and the tiles on the floor and the tables". 

Koa & Ombu
Type of restaurant/pricing: Fusion, high range.
Location: Carrer de Sant Joan, 3, 07012 Palma & Passeig del Born, 5-7, 07012 Palma.

Oysho
Type/Brands: 
Location: Passeig del Born, 2, 07012 Palma

"I know Oysho is a well-known store, but they do have some cute swimwear for a really really good price. I bought one white swimsuit here with tortoise-shell details which I have used so so much. I also bought a super cool crop-top (and I don't really like crop-tops!), because they do have som cute clothing as well".

Where to stay

HM Alma Beach
Cost: Mid range.
Location: Can Pastilla.

"The area around HM Alma Beach is not really that nice, so me and my sister were quite surprised when we walked into the lobby at the hotel. The whole hotel gave me "Bali" vibes. Everything was made out of straw, the hotel pools were super nice and the staff were so sweet. This hotel really gets you value for your money, and I would definitely stay again if I were going to Palma in the near future. The bus to the city centre took about 10 minutes and cost 1,5 euros". 

Puro Hotel Palma
Cost: High range.
Location: Palma city.

Another outfit from my trip to Palma de Mallorca. Me and my sister decided to take the bus in to town and eat dinner there. We shared two amazing pasta dishes, and after that we just enjoyed the buzzing city.

Cropped on Top
Facetune_10-06-2018-00-54-07.jpeg

Another one of my outfits that I wore in Palma while I was there. This one I wore when we were going to an Italian restaurant in the city centre. I have always found crop tops to be hard to style. Sometimes they can be just too much.. This one is quite "edgy" in its color and pattern, but since it shows quite a lot of skin, I decided to combine it with a midi skirt to balance it out. I also put on some tennis shoes to ease down the quite feminine look.

The Tourist

Advertisement (as in the products were gifted)

When going on holiday, there is a few highly important essentials that one needs to bring, in order to be able to relax. Especially if one is going on a beach holiday. There is nothing worse then forgetting sunscreen as an example. A holiday filled with sunburns and staying in the shadow, is not a pleasant one if you ask me. That is why I brought some of my current favorite products to use in the sun on my holiday to Palma. 

860E80FB-E8A8-4A09-BCBB-823F7118B4DB.jpeg

1. Zara beachbag - Bought this in Palma. It's incredibly light which makes it perfect to stuff with beach essentials. It's not big enough to hold a towel, but all other stuff you would want to bring to the beach will fit. I love the colors, and that you can wear it both to the beach and when going to the city for some shopping. 

2. Replay sandals - The comfiest sandals I brought to Palma. Not only is the color super amazing, but the fit is perfect and the leather is so soft. The design is also a little bit different to any sandal I have ever seen before, which is great because with such a light shoe, it's hard to stand out design wise.

Wearing: Bathingsuit by Bikbok, bag by Zara, sunglasses from Sunbuddies, silk scarf from Sandro and necklace by Mango.

3. Biotherm Crème Solaire spf 30 - I used this every single day on my face in Palma, and I didn't break out once, which one can tend to do with sunscreen. It soaks quickly into the skin, leaving it fresh and plump. 

4. Guerlain Terracotta Sun Protect spf 30 - I used this one completely up on my trip. Not only is the scent amazing, but it's so light on the skin and I do really love the idea of a tan enhancer in a sunscreen. I would prefer if the tube was a little bit bigger, so one wouldn't have to bring multiple bottles when going on a two week holiday for example. 

5. Guerlain Terracotta Rêve d'Eté - This is a "skin tint" of some sorts, that gives your skin a fresh summer tanned look without covering anything up. This also contains the tan enhancer which is why I used it under the Biotherm sunscreen every day. I also mixed this into my foundation during the evenings, to make it lighter on the skin and darker in color. 

6. Decléor Aroma Sun Expert Protective Hydrating Milk spa 30 - Another spf 30 that I brought with me on my trip. This one is also super light and soaks quickly into the skin, so one could say that it does what it promises (as in the hydrating milk part). One thing I prefer with this one is that a small amount goes a long way. This one looks barely touched, but I used the Guerlain one up completely on my 10-days long trip. 

What I Did in Palma
66A2995C-29CF-4C11-A7C7-00F591D37E94.jpeg

Went to Palma de Mallorca with my little sister Siril from the 5th of June to the 14th of June. We spent the 10 days relaxing, shopping and catching up on each others lives. We stayed at HM Alma Beah in Can Pastilla, which is a small beach town just outside of Palma. We got to enjoy the good qualities of a beach vacation, but also haveing the buzzing city just a 10 minute busride away. 

D457C093-300D-4E97-BFBB-C79913F3B58E.JPG

We were really surprised when we arrived to the hotel, and greater than we expected it to be. The hotel had a kind of Bali beach vibes over it, with the bamboo tables and chairs, the straw lamps and the aztec patterned cushions. There were also three sunbathing areas, which we made great use out of, as one does on holiday.

We explored the city of Palma quite a few times, and discovered some amazing food and shopping spots that I will write about later in my "An Instagrammers Guide to:" series. I just love all of the rustic architecture, and that the old town is protected and well preserved. There is just something about that feeling you get when walking around in cobblestone streets, with old buildings with big windows covered in colorful window shutters.

EE3712EF-D698-4B60-AE2E-8BE098C7D940.jpeg

I also did some shopping while I was there. I have a major crush on everything that has something to do with the sea these days, so I got a hold of a few jewelry pieces that I have been wearing ever since I got them. Also regretting not getting this amazing white leather jacket from Bimba y Lola with a heart cutout on the back. Super cute. 

04EBC795-7754-4DB8-8DFD-8436D43B38ED.jpeg

Then it was time to head back home. Had a short and sweet, hello and goodbye with my boyfriend at the airport in Palma, since he was going there right after me. Then me and my sister ate McDonalds (haha classy) and went on the plane, read Vogue and slept for the rest of the day..

Also made a super short video of a few clips I recorded while in Palma. Hopefully you like it, and if you want me to do more YouTube videos then please let me know! 

Running to the Sea
Facetune_24-05-2018-00-16-11.jpeg

I love those spontaneous summer nights. Those were you just tell your friend "Hey let´s go there and do this". Summer really creates the opportunity for new memories, without any limitations. I now have had vacation since the 8th of May, and It´s starting to sink in that I really don't have any more exams, any more deadlines hanging over my shoulders and making me stressed out. Until fall that is. Now I can finally enjoy life a little, and feel like I'm free. I can go on restaurants with my boyfriend, I can go shopping with friends, I can travel with my sister and I can focus on my Instagram and blog which is something I really, really enjoy doing.

My Summer Scents
4FF30818-1F83-45E2-986B-641B3442F80D.jpeg

Advertisement - These perfumes were gifted to me.

I have always loved perfume. I look at it like sort of an everyday luxury, something that adds that last touch to any outfit, and really sets the mood for the rest of the day. Perfumes can accentuate what your attire is trying front, an example could be if you are wearing a bright red dress and you want to channel confidence. The right perfume would add just that last touch to your look, but also your mood. One could say that the right perfume is a confidence booster of some sorts. 

Since I do love perfume a lot, I tend to vary which one I wear. This also reflects upon the current season we find ourselves in. Summer scents and winter scents for me would be quite different. I have gathered up three of my current favorite scents that I will wear this summer. All of them representing a different type of mood, look and feel. 

DF86912F-96D5-4FC7-BAF0-ADE25585E41F.jpeg

Dolce & Gabbana The One - Via Vita Exclusive

I fell in love with this perfume the first time I smelled it. It smelled like something familiar, a smell that I couldn't really point my finger at. One of the main notes in it is the Madonna lilly, but it also has notes of bergamot, mandarin, lychee, peach, jasmine and vanilla. It's not overly floral smelling which I like. It is the perfect combination of sensual and cute, and it is a very modern scent. Out of the three, this is the one I reach toward the most. It fits perfect with my more colorful outfits, or outfits with a lot of patterns. One could say that the perfume is quite playful, so that is why I like to combine it with my more playful and fun attire. 

712F3F8D-8034-4298-8934-36BC4DF69FBB.jpeg

Le Labo Santal 33 - Via Sanatorium (in Oslo)

The most recent perfume in my collection. I have been wanting this perfume for quite some time now, but one haven't been able to buy it here in Norway.. Until now. The perfume is based on sandalwood, but it also has notes of iris, violet and cardamom. Everything in it is handmade, from the flower picking to the blending of the perfume in the labs. One of the main reasons I love it so much is that it smells like nothing I have ever smelled before. It's very unique and really sets the mood. I would wear, and plan on wearing this with more muted outfits. Like for example today I wore it with a white skirt, a big white shirt and some black sandals. I wore minimal make-up and accessories. The whole outfit felt very clean, and that is what I get from this perfume as well. 

EB47BBEA-5B4C-4DBB-AD81-4C7E9B4E5BED.jpeg

Giorgio Armani Sì Passione

Let's talk about that red dress I mentioned in the beginning. This is the perfume you wear with that dress. It's sensual but not too overpowering. You can actually wear it both daytime and nighttime I personally think. It has notes of pear, vanilla, rose, jasmin etc. It's very feminine and powerful. I wear this when I am going out for dinner, to evening events and whenever I get more dressed up. You can use this perfume to become more dressed up without adding any more elements to your outfit. 

If you are looking for a new perfume I highly recommend these three. All three were gifted, but all of the opinions are my own. I would never write about something I don't like, and I hope you guys see that.

Me and Andrea went out to take some photos this Sunday and stumbled upon this Magnolia tree which I have never actually seen here in Norway. It was truly stunning, and smelled divine. It was also the perfect photo location... hehe. The photos turned out to be some of my favorite photos I have ever "created". I love how my red outfit clashes with the pink flowers.

24H in Cannes

ADVERTISEMENT - Sponsored trip by Nelly.Com

Woke up at 03:00 in my apartment in Oslo to get ready to catch the bus down to the city centre, to meet up with the other travelers. At 05:00 I was finally on the bus to the airport, next stop; Stockholm. When we landed in Stockholm, we checked in to the Nelly Charter airplane, with destination Nice. The plane was of course all decked out with the Nelly Charter logo which made this trip even more surreal for me.. 

Facetune_04-05-2018-21-06-12.jpeg

Decided to travel comfy and cute, and went for my trusty Acne Studios Manhattan sneakers, a straw hat from Lindex and a straw bag from Chêne. The clothes are all from Nelly, you can find the pants here, the shirt here and the blazer is sold out.. At 15:00 we finally arrived to the secret destination, which turned out to be the Palais Bulles. I have been wanting to go here ever since Dior showed their cruise collection at this location in 2016. The place is truly unique and breathtaking. If you ever get the chance to go there, I will highly recommend it. Especially for the great Instagram photo opportunities.. haha.

Then it was finally time for lunch, after a long day of traveling. I changed into my new dotted jumpsuit from Nelly which you can find here.  I tucked in the "sleeves" and covered the cleavage with a scarf to make the jumpsuit more edgy. I paired it with these amazing kitten heels from Nelly, which looks so much more expensive then they were! You can find them here. Lastly, I threw on my Adax bumbag, my Monki sunglasses and my trusty Zara belt which literally goes with all of my looks.

Then it was time for lunch. We were served a Hawaiian poke bowl with coconut marinated salmon, avocado, edamame and a bunch of other delicious ingredients. It was so so tasty. After lunch it was time to head back to Cannes to check in to our hotel. 

03A05005-7732-47DD-990A-4849C85E7438.jpeg

We checked into Hotel Martinez at the Croisette in Cannes. Such a stunning hotel! We had to hurry up and get ready to go back to the Palais Bulles, because we were to have dinner and drinks there as well. We were served this amazing fish with a cheese covered rice or something.. haha it was so tasty. We also had some chocolaty dessert before heading to the dance floor. My chosen attire for the evening was this belted dress from Nelly which you can find here. Paired it up with my Acne sneakers once again, my Acne bucket hat and an & Other Stories handbag.

The next morning I woke up at 07:45, and went down for some petit déjeuner before check-out at 09:00. Then it was time to head back to the airport to fly to Stockholm, and then to Oslo. For my airport attire on the way home I wore my COS bucket hat, my Zara belt once more and the Acne sneakers (which I am pretty sure you are tired of hearing about now?). All of the clothes are from Nelly.com. You can find the sweater here, the pants here, the denim jacket here and the sunglasses here.

My task was to put together an outfit that was my version of casual elegance, which honestly describes my everyday style perfectly. I chose a tailored pant, a classic jacket and a simple bag as my elegant inputs to this outfit. Then to soften the look up, and make it more casual and my style, I decided to combine it with some bright yellow sneakers, a sporty top and a bucket hat. I also added some star shaped hoops, that made the look more playful.

The Past and The Present

About 1-2 years ago, you could only see me wearing black, white and grey. I don't really know why I did that, but I just really liked having a minimalistic style. These days I am much more comfortable with color and almost wear colorful outfits every single day. It was quite a process going from neutural to color. If you are thinking about adding more color into your wardrobe I highly recommend taking one step at a time, adding pieces of color slowly. Maybe start with some colorful shoes or a bag, even a cute blouse? And remember, colorful pieces can be classic too! My intention wasn't really to take up this subject in this post, but oh well..

The other day, I kind of had a blast form the past.. Clothing wise. I decided to dress up in black and white from head to toe, which I never do anymore. I also went a little bit out of my comfort zone and put on some white tights, and I loved it! 

Facetune_05-03-2018-15-31-28.jpeg

I combined the white tights with my new Acne Studios Manhattan sneakers, and my new coat and bag from the H&M Studio Collection. I topped it off with my trusty old Acne Studios beanie which I got on sale in January. Really one of the best purchases I have done lately.

I can't wait for spring to come, so I can wear this coat open with a dress or a pair of blue denim jeans underneath it. Also, I was supposed to save these sneakers for spring and summer, but if you know me, you know I just couldn't resist taking them out of my closet.

Copenhagen Fashion Week: Day 1 & 2

Finally time to write to you about Copenhagen Fashion Week. It was my first time attending, which ment that I had to do a lot of work before I could actually go there. In the end I managed to get invited to 20 shows! But, since Copenhagen Fashion Week is so big, and the distances between the shows were quite long, I didn't manage to make it there on time to all of the shows..

Arriving to Copenhagen was such a dream. Imagine leaving from -6 celsius and snow in Norway to plus 6 degrees celsius in Copenhagen with no snow under our feet! It really felt like spring. We went and checked into out hotel, before we had to hurry to the first show which was Blanche; an up-and-coming brand that makes interesting basics with sporty details. 

We were really hungry after the show, because we had not eaten since the airport in Oslo. We decided to go to Café Norden which is quite a touristy place but they have the best nachos ever! Just look at the photo below, my mouth is watering just by thinking of eating that right now. After we finished the nachos, we decided to walk to the next show, which took like 30-40 minutes.. It was very exhausting, but also refreshing to get some "exercise" into our day. 

After the Oh! by Kopenhagen Fur show, we went to dinner with our friends Julie and Sonia, were we had delicious authentic italian pizza. Then we went to sleep.. 

The next day started of with us checking out of the hotel, and into Skt. Petri which was the official fashion week hotel. We checked into a beautiful suite which included a bedroom, a living room, a bathroom and a separate toilet. It was so nice to have a big space for our belongings, since it was in fact fashion week, and we were three staying in the room. Just imagine the mess, with everyone changing multiple times a day into different outfits. 

FE00A5AA-8F2D-45E8-BCEE-BA02B4F4E7B3.jpeg

Right after check-in we had to rush over to the first show of the day which was the J.Lindeberg show. It was a really sporty collection, mainly consisting of black and white clothing, but also surprising colors like blue, orange and yellow. 

Wearing: H&M blouse, Rodebjer dress, Acne Studios beanie, H&M tights, Just Female bag and MSGM shoes. 

After the J.Lindeberg show, I was supposed to go to the Martin Asbjørn show, but we didn't manage to grab a taxi quick enough so we missed the show.. We drove back to the hotel, before I headed over to the Anne Vest show. She showcased a lot of colorful fur jackets with interesting details. Unfortunately I only took videos and no photos.. After the Anne Vest show, I went back to the hotel to change, before we got in a cab to try to make it to the Freya Dalsjø show.

Wearing: By Malene Birger pants and blazer, Marimekko shirt, Decadent bag, Komono sunglasses and H&M earrings. 

The Freya Dalsjø show was defiantly the show I was most excited to see during Copenhagen Fashion Week. I love her take on tailoring, making it super edgy and cool! Next show up was the By Malene Birger presentation. I really adore By Malene Birger, and I constantly wear her pieces. The black suit I wore for the show, had a green shimmery sheen to it, making it an interesting take on tailoring, which I do think both Freya Dalsjø and By Malene Birger have in common. 

The last two shows of the day ended up being Holzweiler and Bitte Kai Rand for us. Holzweiler really represented the Norwegian culture in their show with warm coats and hats, accessorized with snow boots and backpacks. After the Bitte Kai Rand show, we headed back to out hotel where we got ready to go to an event, but decided last minute that we would rather eat McDonalds and relax. As one do during fashion week, or maybe its only us? haha.

Oslo Runway: Day 2

Day 2 of Oslo Runway started of with the Veronica B. Vallenes show which was held at the National Museum here in Oslo. We got to see a lot of tailored silhouettes with interesting details. My favorite look from the show is the on under here featuring a shirt with an extremely long collar, a beautiful leather skirt and black trousers.

The next show we went to was actually a presentation by the accessories brand Cala Jade. It was held at the beautiful Vigeland museum which features a lot of sculptures of human bodies. The models was standing on podiums acting as a part of the museum collection, showcasing the new handbags. I really like the direction Cala Jade is heading towards. The bags featured interesting prints in surprising colors as well as the most amazing acrylic chain I have ever seen on a bag! Really really cool actually. You can see this chain on the blue bag that one of the models is wearing over her shoulders. 

Next up was Elisabeth Stray Pedersen which is always a favorite of mine. She held her show at her new factory at Økern here in Oslo. This gave the show a more raw feel to it, making me feel like the clothes was tailored perfectly to the models right before they came out. She showcased the most amazing wool coats and jackets in quite boxy shapes and some in surprising colors. I defiantly need all of them. Almost all of the models wore white tights which I have been loving lately to wear myself, as well as some amazing clear boots that I need in my life asap, where can I get them? Anyone?

Next show for me was supposed to be Admir Batlak, but I missed it which I am so so sad about.. I had to go straight from ESP to a styling event hosted by Redken, Adam&Eva, Oslo Runway and Maud & Fram. It was the first time in a very long time that someone had fixed and styled my hair. Fun fact: I actually can't do anything with my hair, I am soo horrible at hairstyling that I barely can put it in a ponytail. So let's just say that it was really nice to have someone style it.

I actually got to borrow some clothes from Maud that were being showed later that evening. I picked out an amazing checked coat, some flared trousers and a white blouse. I styled it over an H&M blouse that I was already wearing before I got to the event. Then we went to the Maud & Fram show which was held at Christiania theater. After that, we headed to Grand Café to eat dinner with the same people and brands that hosted the styling event. All in all, a perfect end to Oslo Runway.

Oslo Runway: Day 1

Before I start writing about day one of Oslo Runway, I just have to write a tiny bit about Costume Awards that was the night before. Decided to go there very last minute and had to throw together an outfit super quickly. Actually bought the blouse I was wearing this same day on sale at Acne! Had been eyeing it for soo long, so when it was on 60% I just had to get it. 

For those of you that don't know what Costume Awards is, it's an award show honoring the people in the fashion and beauty industry in Norway. Costume is one of the biggest fashion magazines here in Norway, who are hosting the show. It really is a great place to meet new people in the industry, so I am so glad I decided to go. 

Wearing: Acne blouse, H&M blouse underneath, Zara pants, & Other Stories bag, MSGM via Zalando shoes and H&M hoops. 

Then it was time for Oslo Runway. Our fashion week here in Norway is called Oslo Runway, and this year it lasted from the 26th of January to the 28th of January. The first day started of with the Michael Olestad show, which was held at the beautiful "Kunstnernes hus", directly translated to the house of the artists. It was a fantastic show with live music and interesting tailoring. Some of the models even had money bills attached to their jewelry which was quite a fun detail.

Next show up was Iben, which is a show I am always looking forward to during fashion week. Before we went inside, we took some photos outside of our outfits. These two photos of me and Nina under here are taken by Emil Jarengrim (@streetstylebyemil).

Wearing: Komono sunglasses, Isabel Marant Etoile windbreaker, Iben trousers, & Other Stories bag and Doc Martens shoes. 

The show was held at Grünerløkka here in Oslo. I personally think that this location was one of the best during Oslo Runway, it really had an international feel over it. On the runway, we saw a lot of orange, denim, wool, corduroy and checked patterns. The styling was, as always, on point. 

Left photo: Filippa Hägg, me, Nina Sandbech, Tess Hell and Katarina Petrovic. 

Next show up was supposed to be Line of Oslo for me, but unfortunately our taxi driver didn't find the location, so we missed the show.. So while people were inside looking at the show, we were outside taking outfit photos again haha.

Wearing: Lindex sunglasses, H&M hoops, Marimekko shirt, Stand collar, H&M coat, Line of Oslo jeans, Decadent bag, Lindex tights and Veja sneakers. 

The next show was By Timo, which is a show I always look forward to. Elisa, one of the girls from By Timo, is the most kind person I have met in this industry. As always, By Timo showed gorgeous dresses, but this time with some more edgy details like a sharp collar, a low waisted beaded skirt (which I would gladly be married in) and pattern mixing. I wore a By Timo dress to the show, but to make it more my style, I styled it with colored tights, sneakers, a fun bag and a beanie. 

Wearing: Acne beanie, By Timo dress, Marimekko bag and Nike sneakers. With me on the photo, also in By Timo is Filippa Hägg. 

The next and last shows were Tom Wood and FWSS. I didn't really get to see that much from the Tom Wood show, since I stood quite far behind in the crowd. It was filled with denim as usual, but this year the added interesting takes on corduroy and purple. FWSS really surprised me actually. I feel like they are becoming more and more edgy. They showed the most amazing checked coat/dress that I need to get when it comes out. We also saw a lot of beautiful silky pieces, all styled with sneakers or winter boots. I also have to mention the sneakers that are made in collaboration with Diemme.. They are so soo good! Defiantly worth to take a look at.

The Beauty Edit

Advertisement (as in a few products where gifted)

I am very much into beauty, in fact I once thought that I would end up as a stylist/make-up artists doing both beauty and fashion. However there are so many talented people doing beauty these days. I love watching YouTube and learn about new techniques and products; YouTube was in fact where I learnt a lot of what I know today about make-up and beauty. 

Even though I am not the best in the business or an educated make-up artist, I do think that I have some knowledge about the topic, and that I have found some pretty amazing beauty products that work for me! Please do keep in mind that my skin type is normal to combination, where I get oily in the T-zone. 

0744CBD5-6370-494F-B545-71DA23606806.jpeg

1. YSL Touche Éclat All-in-one Glow Foundation

I have actually been getting loads of compliments when wearing this foundation, where people are saying that my skin glows. What I like about this foundation is that even though I have oily skin, I can still wear it. I would say that it´s light to medium coverage, and actually smells super nice which is rare for foundations I personally think. I apply this with my Real Techniques beauty blender sponge, and it soaks into the skin seamlessly. 

2. Erborian CC Crème

I bought this CC cream in Paris in December, and I have used it pretty much every day since. It's white when it comes out of the tube, and turns to color when you blend it into your skin. It blends really nicely into the skin, so it doesn't look like you are wearing makeup. When I apply this, i usually spread a good amount around my face, before I blend it in with my hands to really warm up the product. Then I "patt" it into my skin with my trusty beauty blender. 

E3CF5F48-4CAD-4069-8B51-73F2C6EE9CD9.jpeg

3. YSL Touche Éclat Face Highlighter Pen

4. Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer

This concealer costs like 4 pounds in Boots in the UK, so I always stock up on it when I am over there. Not only is it super cheap, it also works wonders for the price! When I apply this, I use the applicator and put it under my eyes, on my forehead right between my brows and upwards, down the bridge of my nose, on my cupids bow and some on my chin. Then I also blend this out with the beauty blender. 

5. Nars Laguna Bronzer

I have been using this bronzer for as long as I can remember. Every time I am in a country where there is a Sephora, I stock up on this one. The color is perfect for contouring and for bronzing up the skin, or that is at least my personal opinion. Even though it has a few shimmer specks in the product, it doesn't show up on the skin. Remember skin isn't naturally matte, so why would one use only matte products?

6. Mac Mineralize Skinfinish Natural

7. Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector in C Pop

8. MaxFactor Creme Puff Blush

53BBCE5B-DAB1-46E3-9787-15CCD5487C0B.jpeg

9. YSL Couture Brow

Lately, I have been obsessed with only using colored browgel on my eyebrows. I think it gives more of a natural result, while also giving them more definition and color. I have quite bushy eyebrows, but they are also sparse meaning that they don't really look that full unless I color them or use some products. This one from YSL is super good, but the Maybelline one is defiantly a good dupe for it. 

10. Maybelline Brow Precise Fiber Filler

1EC500E1-CA3E-4850-A956-E60B780223FD.JPG

11. Mac Cosmetics Prep+Prime Fix+

12. Too Faced Shadow Insurance Eye Shadow Primer

This one is another product I have been using for years. One of the things I love about it is that it literally lasts for a year or two, not even joking. You need the tiniest amount, and the eyeshadow sticks all day, no creasing. 

13. YSL Top Secret Eye Perfecting Fluid

14. Huda Beuty Desert Dusk Eyeshadow Palette

I have been loving this palette lately. Bought it in Paris at Sephora, and I have been using it almost every day since. I am currently loving experimenting with colored eyeshadow, and especially orange, purple and pink. One would think that people would look weird at me for wearing those kinds of colors on my eyelids, but actually people have been stopping me asking for where my eyeshadow is from! 

15. YSL The Shock Mascara

16. Clinique High Impact Mascara

17. YSL Vinyl Couture Mascara

18. Maxfactor Clump Defy Mascara

As you can probably tell, I have a lot of different mascaras that I am loving lately. This one is the cheapest one, but it's just as good as the others. The perfect everyday mascara, that separates the lashes while also giving them length and volume. My lashes are quite stubborn, so I need a good mascara to keep them staying up all day, and this works wonders! 

E32C28DF-443A-4090-8BB5-0CCDADB8E448.jpeg

19. Clarins Eclat Minute Lip Comfort Oil

I really can't live without this lip oil. It soothes my winter dry lips, smells amazing and the applicator is so so soo soft. I don't really like the smell of the other, more colorful ones of the comfort oils. The one I have is the original one, and it's truly amazing. 

20. Guerlain Kiss Kiss Lipstick

21. YSL Tatouage Couture Liquid Matte Lipstain

22. Mac Cosmetics Lipstick in Mehr

23 & 24. Nars Audacious Lipsticks in the colors: Anita & Raquel

If I could only pick one lipstick, or one lipstick range that I could wear for the rest of my life, it would be the Nars Audacious lipsticks. They are quite matte, but at the same time so moisturizing and soft on the lips. I have three shades from the range (all the nude ones haha), but these two are my favorite! Defiantly worth a try, if you are a lipstick lover. 

25.  Balmain Silk Perfume

It's perfume for your hair, in the most amazing scent ever! What more can I say?

26. Balmain Texturising Salt Spray

27 & 28. NCP Olfactives perfumes

These are perfumes that you can mix and match with each other! There are a wide range of smells to choose from, some woody and some more floral. I think it's so much fun to try out new perfumes, and especially when you can mix them yourself to find that perfect scent that fits you.

I hope you got some new products that you want to try out, or some new tips and tricks to use with your already existing beauty range. If you have any questions, please let me know in the comments or send me a direct on Instagram or on my Facebook page! 

Stockholm Fashion Week: Day 2 and 3

Thumbnail photo by Joanna Totolici for Vogue.Com

Day 2 of Stockholm Fashion Week started off at a breakfast event with Reschia shoes in the beautiful Lydmar hotel. The suite where the event was held, was the most gorgeous hotel room I have ever been in! The interior was just how I would love to have my own apartment look like, with fishbone floors, vintage rugs, designer furniture and amazing art. 

Wearing: Stand jacket, Monki dress, Lindex tights, Decadent bag and Veja sneakers. 

After the Reschia event, we decided to go shopping since we had some time on our hands. As I have expressed earlier on this blog, I love love love & Other Stories, so of course we went in there to have a look. Found myself some amazing jeans, a wide-sleeved shirt, a pair of glitter socks and the most amazing round bag which you will get a look at later in this post. Also went into Zara for a quick look through the selection there, and found some some super cool checked pants that I will get lots of use out of. After our little shopping spree, we sat down at Wienercaféet, which is a cute little place to eat some swedish pastries and drink some coffee. 

3F219241-BD62-49FD-A8B2-FB02BFCA2B45.jpeg

Then it was time for shows again. First off was Swedish Fashion Talents which I must say was one of the most interesting shows! Particularly one brand called Rave Review who use materials from secondhand clothing to make new great creations. Right after that show, we went directly to the Stand show, who showed fun jackets and coats as usual. 

Later that day, Reschia hosted another event at the Lydmar Hotel. We had lots of fun getting to know other people in the industry. For the event, I decided to change outfits into my newest purchases. We then attended the Whyred show, which was one of my favorites. They showed the most amazing wide denim pants, some super cool dresses and an outstanding mens collection. 

Wearing: & Other Stories shirt and bag, Zara pants, Asos patent coat and Nike sneakers.

After the Whyred show, we took a taxi to Tako where we had booked a table. Tako is an asian fusion restaurant which is my favorite type of restaurant. I had tempura shrimp and tuna sushi with jalapeño and a tiny egg. 

Our flight was scheduled to leave on the third day of Stockholm Fashion Week, so we did not have a lot of time to go to shows, but we managed to see some. The first show of the day was Naim Josefi, following that we had to check out of our hotel, then grab a quick lunch. We then headed to a meeting with Vass PR in Stockholm before we had to run to the Stylein show. After that we headed to the airport where our flight was delayed for two hours.. 

That was it for my first time at Stockholm Fashion Week. Next up is Oslo Fashion Week (or Oslo Runway as we call it in Norway) and Copenhagen Fashion Week. Let me know if you want to know more about Fashion Week and my experiences around it!

Stockholm Fashion Week: Day 1
Advertisment 

Long time no see, I suppose I should say. This last month has been super crazy and busy, that I just have not found the time to sit down and produce blog-content that I will be happy about. Just one week after I started on my fourth semester at the University, I sat myself on a plane heading to Stockholm for Fashion Week. It is my first time attending any fashion week outside of Norway, so it was really a huge jump for me. Not only did it take a lot of e-mailing back and forth to get into any shows, but it also needed a lot of planning hence why I did not manage to blog very often in January.  

I was in Stockholm from the 21st of January to the 23rd. We arrived early in the morning to be able to catch the first opening shows. On the photo above, you can see me and Nnennas airport outfits. We decided to stay super comfy and casual, both wearing big warm jackets, super cozy pants and sneakers. 

Wearing: Isabel Marant coat, Diemme long sleeve, Second Female pants, MSGM via Zalando sneakers and ATP Atelier bucket bag.

We checked in at Comfort Hotel Xpress Stockholm (Sponsored stay), which is perfect if you want a cheap but also a central hotel in Stockholm. During fashion weeks, we do not really spend any time at the hotel, because there is always something happening, so we only need a place to change clothing and sleep.

Photo on the left by Joanna Totolici for Vogue.com. Wearing: Ganni knit, Iben skirt, H&M tights, ATP Atelier bag, Komono sunglasses and Nike sneakers. 

Started the day of at the Beckmans College of Design show, which was students showing their work. I think it is really interesting to see new and upcoming designers display their work, however I feel like for most design students these days it has become harder and harder to stand out from the crowd, and that really impacts their design. Instead of making something wearable, its all about making crazy and extravagant pieces that no-one can possibly wear. Hopefully these students made what they really wanted to make. The next show I went to was Johannes Adele and after that we visited the Glitter lounge at Grand Hotel, which was the most gorgeous suite with pink floors and cute jewelry all around.

On this day, we had brunch at Riche, which is the perfect spot to sit down in between shows. I have written about Riche in my "An Instagrammes Guide to: Stockholm" previously. I went for the eggs benedict, which tasted really delicious. After a rather quick lunch, we had to hurry back to the Grand Hotel where most of the shows were held, to watch Newhouse, followed by Busnel before heading to the Filippa K show. Ended the day at Max hamburger, because you know... it's fashion week haha.
