FASHION, OUTFITS

Despite the low resolution, lack of variation and just generally horrible quality; mirror pics are my love and my life. I document almost every outfit I wear, wether it's proper going out-glam or a wet rain poncho at a festival. If there is a mirror you will find me in front of it, posing (with my right side facing the mirror, legs a shoulder with apart and shoulders pushed back.) Is this a hobby I can list on my CV?

I thought running a blog was going to be so easy, and captivate me like it has many times in the past. I used to always think about taking photos, write posts in my head and just live my life always with the blog in the back of my head, despite never having an established following. But this time around, I keep forgetting that I even run a blog. I don't notice the Nouw app on my phone, I never come ut with ideas, I never feel like a blogger.

I dont think this means that I lost my creativity as a content creator, though. I can still come up with cool ideas for posts, videos, editorials and other things, but I no longer stray from my IRL life to create content for the internet. I am more confident being my real world self, and I enjoy life more that I did before, and as a consequence I am less present when I'm online.

To be present in both realities at once, i think you need a group of friends who are all about the same thing, posting to Instagram or blogging or vlogging or whatever. You have to hang out with the same friends on the web too. My friends aren't like that, and so neither am I.

I still love Instagram, though. A lot of my spare time is spent taking pics of outfits for Instagram. But I always take them myself, in the mirror, at home. By myself. I don't disrupt the balance or flow of a social setting to have someone spend five minutes trying to take my picture the right way. I enjoy the company, the food, the entertainment, an rather forget about social media life for a time.

I definitely think this for me new approach to the internet is more adult, and way healthier for me. I can enjoy the moment and spend time with my friends (or with myself and a book) and not have to think about how to translate the experience to an online space. So, if I someday cut my Candy Crush addiction (haha neverrr), I might be able to call myself an Internet healthy individual. Who would've thought.

Ok, to get the obvious out of the way: this girl gets it all for free. She has a perfectedly sclupted body and face that can make any outfit look good, something proven by the fact that she makes the best dressed lists by simply stepping out in jeans and a t-shirt. But, apart from being the re-inventor of the casual chic look, she also has an amazing sense of style.

To steal Kendall's effortlessly high fashion look , there is actually one very simple rule to follow. Kendall masters to perfection the art of splitting every look into parts (top, bottoms, jacket, shoes), and experimenting with the combinations of elements. There is always at least one comfortable and casual element to keep the look grounded, but also at least one to make it look super high fashion. And there you have it.
To be as Kendall as possible, try combining jeans, heals, and a cropped tee, and be on the lookout for flared pants.

My lovely, lovely man and my amazing (very single) best friend ❀

I went for a simple outfit, and ended up completing it by stealing my bff's hat.

Yesterday was so much fun. A couple of friends, my bf and I went to my best friend's house for a chill night of wine and fun, and had a great time. We skipped going out for once and around eleven-ish we just went to my place instead, and stayed there for the rest of the night - perfect for me, who hate going out. I mean, I like meeting friends on the town and so on, but it's too messy and chaotic for me to endure every single weekend. I also like drinking at home because I'm cheap AF and just want to chill at home with a bottle of wine and a coffee w/ scotch, not pay a fortune for drinks that don't even get me buzzed. There, I said it. And I'm pretty sure you al agree.

I hope everyone had a fun weekend, and that you all said or did at least one stupid thing. Dear to live a little, it's good for you πŸ†

Me and my bestie went on a little road trip yesterday, and drove from here to Hamar, which is an hour away. The only agend was to buy a bra, and to visit my boyfriend at work (which is always great because he works at an indian street food place, so I get free food). As always when the two of us get together to go somewhere or do whatever, it resulted in a lot of singing, junk food and traffic chaos, and all in all it was a perfect day. I mean, a day of car fun and karaoke topped with free Indian food and kisses from the hot guy at Tika Tika? Top that.

Yesterday we had our graduation prom! We're not graduating until June, but because we are russ in may (a month long graduation party, which is doubtlessly going to kill me) we usually have a winter prom as our formal party. The party was held at the nicest hotel in town, and we had an absolutely amazing time. We were served a beautiful venison dinner, with an unlimited supply of potatoes, of which I ate at least ten before luckily discovering that my dress made my food baby-belly completely disappear. The dress I wore is actually from Shein, and only cost me around $30, but looked so glamorous. I had to keep my boobs up with 3 different types of tape, though (that's the D-cup life), but somehow that worked for 5 hours, and by the time I had to take them off the party had almost dissolved and I only danced for a couple more songs before I went home myself (YMCA, Bohemian Rhapsody and Breaking Free from HSM to be exact, it was l-i-t).

Annoying, yes, but at the same time I love the numerous malfunctions you go through on a night like this. Before we were even seated I was putting the nine nails in Nine Inch Nails, and by 23:00 I had 6 left. That's the beauty of it all though. Runny makeup, dance sweat, rips, baby hairs and wine stains (thank God I'm a white wine chick, I covered half my dress in the shit and it didn't show at all) .

I was also crowned genius of the year, which to me is the most prestigious prom award. The jury's statement went something like: "This girl is not the typical straight-A student. In the weekends she is out getting blackout wasted, and she can tell you the craziest drunk stories, but on mondays she is back in school, ready to show off her knowledge in history, philosophy, literature and more." Winning was a shock, especially since I nominated another friend of mine and was so sure she'd win that I made sure she was present during the awards, but holy fuck I was so happy I almost cried.

It felt so nice to have my intellectual side acknowledged by my piers in this kind of setting, where I'm normally just the too much whisky-girl. It made me so happy and proud. I love being smart and I always work to make myself smarter (Sunday-Thursday, at least), I love reading, learning, growing.

For everyone else going to prom in these days; I hope you have an amazing time. Let loose and have fun, and do not care more about your looks than your mood!

I didn't want to post this too soon after my port on Facetasm, but HOLY SHIT. This is hands down the best fashion show/collection since the first FENTY x Puma season, and it even comes from an eco-aware designer! I'm so in love I don't even know what so say - so I'll just leave you the link to the Vogue commentary and complete slideshow so that you can enjoy the full magic.
