Har sikla på disse skattene i flere uker, og nå er de søren meg på salg, også. De er sååå fine, skal jeg ta meg råd til å kjøpe én av tingene? Æææh, jeg vil, jeg, vil, JEG VIL! I alle fall jakka...og begge skopara♥
Ett par uker tilbake var jeg så heldig å få jobbe med foto-studenten Sofie Sund igjen. Tema for shooten var "alternative fashion", som betyr at bildene skal se tilfeldige, amatør-aktig og litt sære ut, og man velger gjerne ikke de mest flatterende bildene. Var så gøy å få leke med en gigantisk sparegris, drikke melk fra sugerør og sitte med sko i sofaen, haha! Skikkelig enmanns-party!

Livet er ikke et mesterskap, du behøver ikke å være best for å fortjene gullmedalje. Du trenger bare å være snill med de rundt deg. Om du glemmer å smile til bussjåføren en dag, er du likevel god nok. Gjør ditt beste på skolen, men klarte du ikke å levere den knallbra oppgaven din til fristen, har du fortsatt gjort en bra jobb. Forsøk å hold kroppen din frisk og sprek, men det er greit om du dropper onsdagstreninga til fordel for netflix og kakao. Du er ikke nødt til å yte 100% i absolutt alt du gjør, og du må ikke være best i alt. Summen av alt du er og gjør i løpet av ei uke, gjør deg fortjent til gullmedaljen!
Vær grei med deg sjøl denne uka, ros deg selv for det du får til★
Jeg er tilbake- denne gangen på norsk! Jeg er nå inn i min 11. måned som ferdig utdanna og arbeidsledig, og det har vært sjukt flaut for meg å svare på standard-spørsmålet "Hva driver du med for tiden, da, Eva?" man alltid får når man hilser på noen man ikke har sett på en stund. Folk på min alder som holder på med en bachelor/master, som har jobba tre jobber for å finansiere jorda-rundt-reisa de akkurat er kommet hjem fra, eller som har startet en egen bedrift og jobber knallhardt for å oppnå drømmen sin.
"Nei, duu, jeg gjør ingenting, jeg." Ikke rart om de tror jeg er lat, eller at det skyldes det tøffe jobbmarkedet. Som jeg skreiv i forrige post, må jeg bli flinkere til å bare si sannheten. For sannheten er jo at jeg gjør jo slett ikke ingenting! Jeg investerer tid og masse arbeid i det aller viktikste man kan bruke tid og arbeid på- nemlig meg selv og min helse. Jeg jobber også knallhardt, kanskje ikke med de samme tingene som de fleste andre ungdom, akkurat nå, men likevel like krevende og viktig for min fremtid. Når jeg er ferdig med "prosjekt Eva", skal jeg også fortsette å virkeliggjøre drømmene mine, og jobber jeg like hardt som jeg har jobba det siste året, kommer de til å bli oppfylt!
Nå til den litt mer materialistiske delen av innlegget: Kule ting jeg vil ha til den kommende selskapssesongen.
1. Clark kjole fra Ganni. Så enkel, så flatterende, nydelige detaljer, den perfekte little black dress til julaften.
2. Glitterskygger fra Coloured Raine i fargene Secrets og Oh, me? som gjør at øynene skinner litt ekstra til fest.
3. Bahama Mama neglelakk fra Essie i en deilig plommefarge.
4. Humphrey cape fra Ganni. Jeg elsker at dette er et plagg man kan ta på for å elevere et ellers cleant antrekk eller kombinere med noe mer maksimalistisk, for å kjøre den helt ut. Har så mange bluser/kjoler med paljetter og perler, men et cape kan man enkelt ta av når det lir utpå kvelden, uten at antrekket blir ukomplett.
5. Retro Matte Liquid Lipcolor i fargen Oh, lady fra MAC. Går man for en mer naturlig øyesminke, kan man kjøre på med en matt flytende leppestift i samme fine plommefarge som neglelakken.
6. Ankelboots fra Missguided i presset fløyel. Fargen, teksturen og utforminga på disse bootsa er dødskul! Igjen-et tilbehør som vil løfte et ellers minimalistisk antrekk.
7. Skin parfyme fra CLEAN. Jeg synes det er så mange parfymer der ute som lukter altfor sterkt av blomster og andre stramme lukter; Denne parfymen gjør at du dufter lett og friskt.
I used to always mask my true emotions with a smile. At first, I found it so easy, I was good at it. I was fooling everyone. After a while, it got harder, and I got sicker.
Then the excuses came: "I'm sick today, so I'm not coming to school". When I got back to school a couple days later, and they asked if I had had a cold, I just responded with a nod. I struggled to finishin projects before the deadline, and I wondered why I didn't get any help. Why didn't they let me get a few extra days?.
"Sorry, something urgent came up, so I can't come tonight after all". Bailing dates or group projects at the last minute, and lying about why, made me feel like such a bad person. My friends and co-students putting off time for me and depending on my help. But then again, when they stopped asking me, and I felt they were getting irritated with me, I got mad. "They have no right to be irritated, they don't understand what it's like, they don't know what I'm going through."
THAT'S JUST IT, PEOPLE! I just realized this quite recently; How the heck can I expect help and understanding, when they don't know how I'm doing? How can they know that I'm not up to coming to their birthday party, when I go around smiling like I just smelled a fucking unicorn fart all the time?
I'm not saying I have to stop smiling all together, just because I don't want people to think that I'm no longer dealing with a depression. I have a lot of happy moments, and of course I should express that with laughter!
My point here is: We all need to stop being afraid to be transparent! Don't be scared to cry, don't be scared to tell people the truth, even strangers. Migrane=tomato, depression=tomato. You don't have to tell everyone everything, as long as you just tell it like it is. Stop wearing that fake mask and be transparent.
That said, we should also wear clothes in transparent materials more often! A little off season, but still- looks damn cool right? Peace out
I'll definitely start going to those markets more often. But first- some closet cleaning!
Quite literally [except, they´re not really roses]. I love how the result from the photoshoot turned out! Sofie Sund is so talented, and I'd love to get a chance to work with her again.
Most of all, I'm really happy about throwing myself into this challenge. Might seem like a small deal, it's just ONE picture, and the whole thing was over in just 15 minutes, but I was doing something I wasn't at all comfortable with, with someone I've never met. That IS a big deal to me. And I've been exposing myself to these kinds of situations a lot, lately. I'm proud of myself, and I'm starting to get more and more comfortable in those uncomfortable situations. That feels good!
A list of a few of my everyday essentials. Hope you enjoy it!
1. Mickey Mouse watch from Disney [ASOS]
I don't think it's very polite or practical to check your phone every time you need to know the time, so I swear to always wearing a wrist watch. I got inspired to get this one, when I read about professor Robert Langdon from Dan Brown's novels [DaVinci Code, Inferno++]. I think it's so cool that such a conservatively dressed 50 year old professor is wearing a Mickey watch, so I wanted to be just as awesome and got one myself!
2. Mickey Mouse cap from Disney [H&M]
Believe it or not, sometimes I just feel like wearing basics. But I always need to put some sort of fun element into my outfit. Lately, I've been wearing this silly Mikey Mouse cap, and even though my outfit has been basic and fairly boring, I always get smiles and curious looks because of this hat.
3. Shower Fresh perfume from CLEAN
When I was a teenager, I often got perfumes for my birthday or Christmas. That resulted in a drawer full of unused perfumes, because they ALL smelled like sweet, nauseating perfume. Four years ago, I got an assignment at school, where we were supposed to design create a ball gown inspired by a perfume. I went to a store and picked out the bottle I found the most attractive. I picked the CLEAN Skin, and ever since I've been wearing the CLEAN perfumes, because they don't smell like perfume. They smell like you just stepped out of the shower, they smell fresh!
4. Pink sunnies from ASOS
Sunnies are a must in the bag, all year long, not just for summer. They protect your precious eyes, and they make you look damn cool. I'm so tired of the classic wayfarers and pilots, that everyone's wearing, so I found these pretty things at asos.com. Aren't they sweet?
5. Instax mini 8 from Fujifilm [Platekompaniet]
I love how perfectly imperfect these cute li'l pics turn out, and they're a great way to decorate the walls at home. Just the camera itself looks cool up on that shelf or in your hands on a photoshoot with your friends.
6. Notebook from a shop in Paris
Probably the most important tool for a blogger [except for maybe the computer :P] and for a thinker and list maker like myself. I also like keeping a sketch book in my bag, for whenever I get some more visual ideas I need to get down on paper.
7. Wooden comb from BodyShop
A wooden, large tooth comb will bring much less damage to your hair while untangling it.
8. Sky Blue nailpolish from Gina Tricot
I'm not a very talented nail artist, but just a cute solid color can be just as pretty...
9. Minimalistic silver rings from Gina Tricot
Accompanying that nail polish with some simple and classy rings, will make those paws look fab!
10. Bed Head After-Party cream from TIGI
Gives my dry hair some moisture and leaves is feeling silky smooth and looking shiny. And the smell! OMG❀
11. Soft & Gentle highlighter from MAC
This thing is magic! Lifts your cheek bones and gives your face a nice glow. Spray a little Prep+Prime+Fix water mist from MAC on your brush before applying highlighter and you'll be ready for a photoshoot or a night out.
12. Eyebrow dye kit from Depend [Cubus]
My brows are so light they used to look invisible before I started dying them. Dying them once a month, spares me a lot of time in the mornings.
13. Tri Brow color from Makeup Store
Because of the dye, I don't reeeally need this kit, but to make my brows completely on point, I need this to frame and fill them in perfectly.
14. Nail file from Depend [H&M]
There are times I don't really like wearing anything on my nails. This nail file makes them look healthy and shiny, and I really like filing my nails. It's so calming, in a way.
15. Elephant purse from Zara [Children]
Like the hat, this really brings so much fun to basic black outfit. Just got it, and I can't wait to wear it!
This is a very general list, would you enjoy reading about my makeup essentials++?
This man's designs manages to cover everything I love; Volume, shape, texture, color, cleanness and fun. I also love that he chose to go simple on the styling and went all out on one accessory- the earrings. They make such an impact, without taking focus away from his gorgeous designs.
The hot pink coat, the look with a grey wrap in the front and the bottom left look are truly pure perfection☆ Actually they all are, but those are my favorites.
What do you think? YAY or NAY?
I'm feeling so inspired by the shoot today, so the theme of today's pinterest sunday is floral. We're going towards fall, but remember the amazing summer we've had this year, that smell of flowers, the bouquet you bought yourself at the market, those yellow flower fields you saw out the window on your road trip. All those great moments; Preserve them in your mind and prepare yourself for an other season which will contain just as many good moments as the last one.
AND- HAVE A GREAT WEEK♥
