Today is the DAY!

   Today I will put in my dreads!! I have been watching videos on YouTube about maintenance and other issues that can arise from my having dreads. For me, this is about wanting to mark a transition in my life. The last time I felt this way I got a tattoo of a turtle on my back because it was the end of an phase or era. Now, that I have come to this point in my life I feel that something needs to be done to show that I have reached another milestone in my life. I'm not worried about negative connotations associated with having this hairstyle. If there would be a problem it will remain with those who have one.

Cute Skirt!

Christabelle Buckle Mini Skirt $179.00
Despite the fact that I am so tired that I almost can't control my fingers I had to post some new things on the blog. Another really cute J.Crew creation...I don't do mini skirts anymore. I would though wear this with leggings if it was possible. The question is, Is it possible to wear leggings with this skirt. I don't know.

Anyway....I love it!

Office Outfit

I would totally wear this to work tomorrow...perfect for Monday Madness...


I will probably wear jeans and a sweater!

Wedding Dress

If I was going to be married tomorrow, in the mood I am in now...I would wear this:
 J.Crew Silk Chiffon Thea Gown $700.00
Tomorrow is Valentines Day and I am in a romantic mood. I have been married twice and have never had a wedding. I think I would like to have a Happily Ever After party but a wedding is too much stress for me to deal with at least for now. Still....it would be nice to have a reason to buy a really beautiful white flowing dress.

New Hair Style 2

Lisa Bonet
As promised I have put up a new picture of the dread-goddess Lisa! I am so excited that I have decided to take this step. My consultation will be on Wednesday and over a bottle of wine I will learn about the different options for my hair and maintenance. I feel like dreadlocks are the natural step but since I am a working professional I need to have them nice and tidy from the beginning. I don't have time to have wild hair..that is kinda the problem now. No, not really..the problem is that I always wear my hair in a bun and its just boring. I am tired of being boring!!!

Enjoy the picture!

Happy Sunday!

Goodies

I was web window shopping and I found this totally cute necklace from J.Crew!

Factory Enamel Critter Charm Necklace $19.50
We love elephants in this house! 

New Hair Style

Ok!!
 I have decided that I want to have dreadlocks so.....on Wednesday I am having my first consultation! I have always wanted dreads but never had the guts to do it..until now...THE TIME HAS COME!!

I will post a new picture everyday of my dreadlock idol....LISA BONET!!

She is probably one of the most beautiful women in the world...I just love her!!

So...here is Lisa Bonet dreadlock diva picture number one!!


Lisa Bonet
I do realize the danger of using pictures of Lisa Bonet as an example for what I want my hair to be like. First, of all once I get dreads I still won't look like Lisa Bonet but I love her style and somehow dreads will bring me closer to my authentic self than my hair now. I have always been extreme about my hair. It has been super short to crazy extensions long but with dreads+extension I think it will be closer to what I imagine I look like in reality.

Happy Friday BABIES!!

Today's Outfit!

Everyday I read blogs where people are showing off their fabulous outfit and I say...hej just because I bought my shirt at Intersport for 99kr doesn't mean that it isn't super cute!! Anyway, the jacket is from H&M...I bought it last autumn!

Happy Friday!

Confession

Someone asked me if this blog was a "fashion blog" and my answer was an emphatic NO!! I love fashion but I am a mere spectator. Let me be perfectly honest with you..I am totally not fashion forward. I don't wear heels or makeup or spend more than 10 seconds on my hair. I am a recovering TOMBOY and hate skirts unless they go all the way down to my ankles. I wear a few sizes too big which is isn't flattering to my figure but I do love pretty things. I have a real appreciation for simplicity and that is why I am a huge fan of J.Crew and Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair!!

Two major favorites of mine!!

Tonight I want to show you what I would like to wear to work tomorrow if I had it in my closet:

J Crews Vintage Cotton Cowlneck Tee $29.99

Me...write a fashion blog...I don't think so...

Learning to Trust and other things

I love my job!! I love to sell!! I love the feeling of my heart pounding outta my chest from nerves when I do something new. It hurts but it's a growing pain and it's a way I know that I am actually alive. Today I made a great sales call. I finally understand my product and all my arguments, which I believe in have come together into a cohesive structured sales pitch. I wish people understood how great it feels to sell something you not only believe in but have
developed as well. Can't wait for tomorrow!!!

Philips Wake Up The Town - Karolina's story (Arctic Experiment)



I have been following the PHILIPS LIGHT EXPERIMENT campaign on YOUTUBE and think that it is so interesting how they use real people's lives as a way to promote their product. You see Karolina wake up and then watch her as her day unfolds.


Great!!

Kee Kee vs JLO

  I LOVE THE BEANIE PUFF!!


I am probably so totally late talking about this but I had seen women/ girls/ children walking around Stockholm with this hat and I was forced to get one.

Apparently there is a store on Östermalm that sells them. I can't remember the name so this isn't very informative. I did not find mine on Östermalm but I am never the less just as cute!!!   I purchased my hat at Hollis in Barkaby and it wasn't that much cheaper than the Östermalm version.

Thank you very much!

I apologize for the late report and to anyone against wearing animal fur. I can tell you that no cute cuddly animal was harmed in the manufacturing of my hat, although the fur is real!

Conscious Collection-Sustainable Style at H&M

H&M Press Photo




I love H&M!! My first visit to their store was actually in New York, probably one hundred years ago! Anyway, I am a huge fan so when I read that they where launching a Conscious Collection I got really happy because I knew that it would be in my price range. I have always wanted to buy more clothes that are environmentally friendly but its usually so expensive to do that it is not really an option.

The Conscious Collection will hit all H&M stores mid April and will be a recurring collection that will be featured at different times during the year.
