Ice cream flamingos!

My dear Ulrika gave me these pretty little things for Chistmas and I love'em! Aren't they adorable?! She said that she thought of me when she found them. Now isn't it very neat that someone would think about you when they see flamingos, hearts and mint-green? I sure think so!

Lovely, why aren't you mine?

Photo quality is absolutely rubbish (mobile camera) but I had to show this hat! Isn't she lovely? (Stevie pun intended...). She, yeah I decided that it's a she, and I were meant for eachother but sometimes life just doesn't agree. *Sigh* she was so beautiful...

Da real thang!

Just a little something to make one forget about that deep November darkness.

"Blurryness" and newish shoes

This picture wasn't that great to start with so I decided to play around a bit with light and such. Well, it still didn't turn out that great but my main goal was to accentuate the green and the red... As for the shoes, they aren't new at all but I just rediscovered them in my mum's basement. I must have used them like twice or so but now I kind of like them! You know "man's loafers meet old woman's sole (chunky and useful i.e.)", neat right?!

Summer pink

I've kind of been living in these pink shorts all summer, again "the ice cream colour" - attraction. When I bought them they were a bit longer but I had to cut them off in order to not look like a middle aged golf playing man, well you get my point. Note how I'm enjoying my last days of REAL summer sun in the first picture, *sigh*.

New shoes, kind of...

It's bloody September! Ain't that depressing? I guess spending September here would be perfectly fine but no, I have to go back to that dark and cold place... Ok, note to myself: more positive energy and start seeing beauty in the most simple things.
Speaking about simple happiness, I ordered these shoes a while ago but started using them last week. Quite like them actually. I was also very happy that they fit! My feet are "in-betweeners", not always a 4 but neither always a 5, so that's all good. (Do ignore multi-coloured feet).

Shoes - ASOS

When angels sing

I really think we need a tune, a lovely one on top of that. The way Michael sings "Destiny"... MAGIC.

Birthday of a King

I know it's late but it's still the 29th here. Went to the beach briefly today, the sound of the waves are so soothing just like your voice. Happy birthday Michael. Miss you a lot.

Another day in Stockholm

Boots were another thing I hadn't worn for months. Quite depressing actually. I do love wearing long sleeves and I adore tights in all colours but I'm not sure if I love summer more... I've realized that my most precious memories are of sunny spring and summer days.

Weekend in Stockholm

My best friend got married during the weekend so I went to Stockholm for a few days. The wedding was loads of fun and my friend looked stunning! Unfortunately my dear b-friend accidentally erased all the pictures on my camera half-way through celebrations... I tried taking more pictures but don't really have any good ones. Will have to hunt down photos from my friends instead.
While the wedding was lovely the weather was less enjoyable. It's supposed to be warm in August even if you're in Sweden! My first time wearing tights in months. So now I've got a lovely cold... Well, I probably shouldn't complain since I did have a great weekend.

Yellow shell

Found this romper in a vintage shop in May and although I really like it I've only used it once. So the other day I set myself on yellow romper mood and used my b-friend's bike as an accessory. As long as I'm not on the bike it's all good. I tried getting on it the other day but since I can't even reach the peddles I thought: " No, I do not want to end up looking like a Big Bird-mess lying flat-faced on the curb...". And even though everyone's emphasising the arrival of autumn I just don't feel like walking around in a jacket and boots when it's 30 degrees (celsius) outside. No summer, I'm not done with you yet.

More magic...

Faints, cries, smiles, feels hot and bothered (ehem), all at once...

Night gown?

I really like my new mint green (yes, again) top but have realised it looks a bit like a night gown... Well, I don't mind really because some night gowns are so pretty you wonder who'd ever want to sleep in them? This one might not be one of those super pretty ones but I sure wouldn't want to sleep in it either. I'll just continue wearing it and perhaps look like I just got out of bed and forgot to get changed...

Ashish ss10

I know that this collection isn't "new" but gosh do I want all of it! The fanny packs, or bum bags as I prefer to call them for obvious reasons *giggles*, are just what I've been looking for since last year. I want me a bum bag!

The last months obsession

Smokey's beautiful voice is pure bliss!
Just had to add my darling Michael's version of "(Come 'Round Here) I'm the One You Need", can you be anything but amazed?!

Red heart, mint green

Yup, this weekend I wore my diaper denim shorts again. It's so nice to wear shorts that aren't that tight and won't make your legs look like roastbeef (wrapped in string) once you sit down... Borrowed J's tee because as I've mentioned before I'm liking candy colours right now although I don't wear it as often as I'd like. The red heart-brooch is a x-mas gift that my niece made me. Love hand-made gifts!

I really wouldn't mind...

I strangled Valentino (he strangled Valentino)
U've been mine ever since (U've been his ever since)
If anybody asks u (If anybody asks u)
Come on, baby get up!
Get up!

("Private Joy", Prince)

- Well yes please, duh! I'd never let him strangle my dear Valentino though, he's too precious and I'm so happy he's back on the track again. Makes MotoGP worth watching again...

I watched this documentry by David LaChapelle yesterday and it was amazing. The small kids are just beautiful. I always loved LaChapelle's work but didn't know that he did films too.

Bohemian weekend

Was wearing this on Sunday but did swap my wedges for good ol' flip-flops once it was time to head to the beach. I bought this top back in May when I was in NY and I adore it! Thin and with long sleeves - love. Might've been wearing it a lil' too much though...
Since frying in the sun isn't really my sense of fun I decided to join my friend and b-friend when they decided to go jump off a cliff, into the water that is... Apart from the painful super wedgie I got it was fun and very liberating! Felt like a kid and it reminded me of my tomboy years, miss those days. Never knew ageing would be so depressing...

Spanish glory

What a well deserved victory! This world cup I've been supporting Spain as if I was Spanish myself. Not too unnatural considering my own country even failed to qualify, at least I'm in the right country... Bring back the Swedish glory of 1994! Anyway Spain plays beautiful football, simple as that.

Here are some of my crappy pics I took of the celebrations earlier in the week:

Thought I'd just throw this picture in for all the Torres - admirers like myself...

Craving shoes

I'm trying to find white shoes for my best friend's wedding next month (she wants all the bridesmaids to wear white shoes) so I was browsing on Office's website and found these lovelies! I know, none of them are my idea of "wedding shoes" nor are they white but I love'em! Adore the 70's platform shape of the heels and lately I've been drawn to icecream colours just like these (the loafers), reminds me of 80's tracksuits... I need to really sort myself out and start earning more money because luck ain't my friend...

In Central Park

This is also a photo from back in May but thought I'd post it anyway. Quite like my new 10$ - shorts although they tend to look like a diaper sometimes, hmm... Looks like I'm doing some advertisement for Gap here. Had to find my mum something and Gap felt kind of safe I guess.

The smile that lights up any darkness

One year of sadness...

Can you believe that it's been a year already? Time flies and I just want to slow it down and make it go backwards. The world has been a darker place since you left us Michael. I miss your light. I miss the old days so so much, days of your new songs and videos being played on MTV. It sure feels like time causes more pain than it heals like so many suggest. I'm sending all my blessings and love to your children, may they grow up and be exactly like their beautiful daddy.
Thank you for your love and magic. Thank you for everything Michael.

Some NY

It's been a month since my last post but if you don't count my exams I've had a lot of fun in that period of time. For x-mas my sister got me a trip to New York and a few weeks ago we finally went there! It was my first time in the States and we had a lovely time although I did spend way too much money but I guess it was worth it. I'll just post a few pictures for now.

Morning coffee from Starbucks of course...

Some traditional tourist time.

I bought the brown boots I'm wearing in the previous picture at this flee market, among other things. Love flee markets (though they should come up with another name for it, lol)!
