HEY BABES,
I had the guts to dye my hair peachy-pinky, but I realised I couldn't bare with the commitment it is with a hair colour like that. You really need to think about what colours you wear and I've been there, done that. Not for me. Not anymore. I just want my hair to look and feel natural, and looking back at photos of me with dark, ginger, black and red hair, I really do feel that blonde is the most me.

So, I played it safe. Sorry for all the hype. My hairdresser and I came to the conclusion that darker roots (ombre) is the best way to go, so I could still stay blonde. This way, when my roots grow out they will blend in and I won't have to go back and dye my roots every 5-6 weeks. This way I can stay away from hair-dye for a while and let my hair grow strong again.

I couldn't take any better photos than these without last times mistake showing and it doesn't make me feel good so.. you'll just have to hold on until I take more selfies. However, I'm really happy with my hair now and I'm really excited to see if my roots actually grow out discretely or if we failed to judge the colour.

Now I'm heading out for some drinks by the river with some friends! Have a lovely weekend you guys! Speak soon! x

Hey beauties, how's the Christmas hustle going? Need some time off?
Could do with a bit of money to book a night/weekend/week away? If so, GR8!

If you click the link below you'll get $44 AUD off your first AirBnb booking! (£25 GBP / 280 SEK) The perfect reason to book a weekend away. My mum and younger brother are coming down to Australia first week of January and we're heading down Great Ocean Road to spend 2 days at the beach. Hotels are ridiculously expensive during the holiday season so I'm so glad we found an airbnb! Cam and I always stay at airbnb's when we go travelling overseas or just want a weekend away.

CLICK THIS LINK TO REDEEM YOUR MONEY

I'm not sponsored by airbnb or anything, I just really think airbnb is so much better than hotels. If you don't know what airbnb is, it's people renting out their apartments/houses/rooms, and you get so much more for you money. You can book a house with a garden, a cosy cottage, a penthouse apartment etc. It's not dodgy at all and everything is super safe. Haven't had any issues at all!

Feel free to share the link with your friends and family! Because let's be honest, who doesn't need some time off after/during the hectic holiday season?

Anyhow, it's Thursday and our pizza is on it's way. Have a lovely weekend you guys! Speak to you soon. ♡

It’s a tired morning. Not so much sleepy, but I just didn’t want to leave the bed this morning. A cool breeze made its way in through the window despite the high today is going to be 37. I jumped into my mustard coloured linen loungewear and snoozed for another 20. It’s so hard to commit to getting up when you’ve got a warm, sleeping humanbeing next to you that doesn’t have to get up until you’ve left.

With my coffee cup now empty it’s time for me to leave for work. An afternoon with friend by the pool is awaiting after a few hours of work. Speak later babes x

Hey guys, how are we? Yesterday morning we were meant to go for a gym session, but when I woke up my nose was a bit runny, so while Cam was at the gym, I had my morning coffee in the pool instead. Gotta take advantage of that 8AM vitamin D.

On that note, can we just take a moment and realise it's December, and almost Christmas, and this is what I do at 8AM on my day off. I'm not putting on my woolly socks, boiling a hot cup of tea, making porridge with heaps of cinnamon while listening to Frank Sinatra. To then cozy up under the blanket on the couch, choosing what Christmas movie to watch while I add stuff to my Christmas Gifts list. And that, is, freaking, me, out.

When you're in cold, miserable Europe you sit there and scroll down your instagram feed to see friends celebrating Christmas on the beach (there's always someone, right?) and you think to yourself OMG DREAM. Trust me, the summer over here is the dream, it's goals, but CHRISTMAS!? Christmas is not Christmas without my best friend (HI CAROLINE) and her homemade ginger biscuits, my mum's overdecorated house with a Christmas tree that's hitting the ceiling, the stupidly busy streets of London with store attendants treating every single person walking through their doors as tourists. I never knew I was such a Christmas patriot until now. I walk past shop windows with Christmas trees and decorations every day, but they just make me laugh. Because as I walk past them I acknowledge my outfit in the reflection, and I'm wearing shorts and a t-shirt, not a feather stuffed bomber jacket and scarf and gloves. It doesn't add up.

Oh well, at least I'll get to spend it with the love of my life, and that's what matters. What makes Christmas for you? I'm super interested so please let me know in the comments below! xx

brunette? strawberry blond?

I need your help. I'm in for a bit of a decision. Because of an unfortunate reason I cannot continue being blond (actually very sad about that), or more accurately, I cannot continue bleaching my hair. And since it's not by choice I'm having a rough time deciding what colour I wanna go for. (Obviously not green nor grey, but it was fun playing around with the colours this morning). I'm leaning towards the second picture, strawberry blond, or any of the three at the bottom. What do you think? I'm afraid if I go dark my roots will appear lighter, which will make my hair look really thin. But maybe the peachy strawberry blond will still need bleaching?

What do you think? Strawberry blond or darker?

please help me

After a whole day, lazily spent in bed, I was dying to head up to the gym. I pushed myself hard and I absolutely killed my butt and my thighs. With shaky legs I glance out the rooftop windows, I can barely see the skyline., that's how much it's raining. I couldn't help but to jump in the pool. There's nothing better than to be under water when it's raining. The pool was warm, steam was oozing from the surface. I dove under the water, having the splattering drops above me was magical. The sweat from the gym suddenly washed off and I had reached a whole new level of relaxation. Cannot describe the feeling.

"Getting serious about a media, publishing, overseas or spiritual project is likely now as, starting this month, putting your work or 'brand Taurus' out there and getting noticed will be a labour of love. Money needs a make-over, but with close work and love relationships happier and luckier than they've been in over a decade, financial freedom is in your sights."

What are your thoughts on horoscope? Do you read them? I get mine once a month from Vogue, and that's the only one I'm reading. Not every month but a bit here and there. And my horoscope this month is freaking me out!

I'm struggling a lot with my instagram at the moment. I'm trying to find a way to stand out, and gain more traffic. I've been sitting on 1150 followers for the last 6 months and I want nothing more than to grow and to reach more people.

My blog is also taking a bit of a hit at the moment because of the visa that I cannot put down for a second. I really want to lodge it this month so every spare moment goes to printing, scanning or putting together photos. I cannot wait until March next year when I'll be a fashion student and my blog will be blooming.

To not mention the money situation I'm facing at the moment. I recently realised it's CHRISTMAS this month and I come from a very giving family, so "I've got a $7000 visa to pay for, sorry no gifts this year" is just a sentence you'll never hear coming out of my mouth. I know it's a legit excuse but I cannot not buy my family Christmas gifts. So I definitely cannot wait for the financial freedom mentioned in my horoscope. That would be very nice. Thank you very much.

Hopefully not being a complete moron, or a selfish bitch, I ask kindly;
If you do like my blog, or have a suggestion of a post, topic or whatever, don't be afraid to get in touch. Comment down below or reach out to me on instagram, email or my facebook page. Never miss a post from me by liking my facebook page and please do share with friends if you think they'd find me interesting. You've no idea how much I'd appreciate it. I just feel like I'm in a stupid stand still at the moment and I need some motivation to keep going. Would mean the world to me.

Thank you, Love you. x

Hey guys, how are we?
I had quite a lovely weekend I have to say. We had a couple of friends joining us for our Thursday night: pizza & wine, which was lovely. Hung up on the roof for a bit before the sky opened up and it started to pour.

We started our Friday with a Scandi breakfast, and most of the day was spent organising photos, as mentioned in earlier post. But a quiet day in was finished off with a date night at Gold Class. Went to see "Murder on the Orient Express", an Agatha Christie movie. It was really beautifully made, maybe a bit slow for my liking.. And as predicted, the reclining, super comfortable chair, the tangy rosé and the dark salon made it really hard for me to stay awake. But once you go Gold Class, you can't go back. I'm still thinking about that armchair...

Saturday was kickstarted at the gym, and then we spent the early afternoon at the food market, getting meat and veg for the week. The later afternoon was spent on the roof by the pool. Still can't get enough of our rooftop.

Today's Sunday and we just had dinner in front of the tele. Swam a few lengths in the pool as soon as I got home from work before. It's only been mid 20s today but the air is still humid and sticky. Absolutely nothing better than to dive into the water, for just 10 min or so. Oh so lovely.

Anyhow, just realised Love Actually is on tv, need to make a cup of tea before the commercial break is over. Speak soon lovelies. xx

... having to prove myself and our relationship to the government

I feel confident and in peace with everything I have to do regarding the visa, and to be honest; I don't hate working on it. I've always loved writing so I don't mind writing about our life, how much we love each other and how we first met. It's kind of.. fun. Having to dig for photos of us and from trips and holidays together. I actually don't mind. Putting together collages of pictures and flight tickets as well as airbnb confirmations. If I manage to make it look as good as I picture it in my head I'll show you guys.

I'm right now in the process of trying to reach out to my bank in England, to see if they've kept a record of all my addresses I stayed at in London. Anyone who's lived in London knows the accumulated number of addresses over 4 years of living there is hitting at least 7 to 10. The leases are short and the housemates can be a horrid pain. (Less fun and exciting to dig up, that I can admit.) I also need to give a specified list of all jobs I've held since 2007, and all the countries I've visited. When, where and how long I was there for, dated all the way back to good old 2007. Again, less fun..

Tonight we're heading out for a proper date night - dinner and gold class cinema. Gold Class is like a VIP Cinema where you can order food and drinks from your seat, which itself is a comfortable, reclining armchair. (I'll try my best not to fall asleep.) Until it's time to leave, I'll continue organising our photos.

Hope you have a fun, or relaxed weekend ahead of you. I'll speak to you soon. xx
