Today as I was riding on the bus home from work in my big shades, drinking everything around me, I could not help but think of a famous Karl Lagerfeld quote. He was asked why he always wears dark glasses despite the time he said: “Sunglasses are like eyeshadow. They make everything look younger and prettier.” ...and for once, everything around me had youth and beauty..... seriously thinking of rocking shades all day everyday!! Continue reading

Imagine falling in love and being in love. Imagine that feeling.Imagine the laughter the joy the butterflies. Imagine holding on to it, and not letting it go. Imagine the sweat, the tears the work. Imagine it consuming all your senses. Imagine it taking over and clouding your judgements. Imagine dissapointment, Imagine Heartbreak, Imagine pain real pain. Imagine sleepless nights and being unable to eat. Nothing lasts forever and Love is no exception, as painful as it is when it ends, it is always nice tolook at what was, and be glad that we loved with all our hearts, all the... Continue reading

Last week ARTE - a television station I think originally from France but works totgether with Germany, in commemoration of the Parisian fashion week, had features with the heads of different fashion houses and fashionable movies. Truthfully speaking, I have never paid much attention to Proenza Schouler. True they are very popular and their collections are really worth writting home about, but I have my loves and I kinda fixate on them. Still, after watching the two men behind Proenza Schouler, learning about their background, how they came into the fashion world, and just watching how it was for them... Continue reading

Being at the Arlanda Airport with a lot of time to kill and a few Kroner to spend, I got myself the February Issue of the UK Vogue. With Mrs. Beckham (Who I just adore) on the cover. Flipping through the pages, I ran into this story: Chic? I think so... workable - yes! for short haul flights... I remember my flight to Barbados. I ran into a friend of mine who was seeing her boyfriend off at the airport. She asked me if I always dressed up while flying, considering I was going to be on a 9 hour... Continue reading

I just woke up to a sunny room, at 7:30 a.m. That's a huge deal!! it means the days are noticably getting longer and spring is finally creeping upon us. Oh spring! how long we have waited for you!! Let's bring out the summer wear and PARTY!! My inspiration for this summer comes hugely from the Balmain ss2010 ready to wear collection, mostly because I was rocking cropped pants, vests and blazers last summer...but ofcourse the maxi Dresses are also going to get huge air play. Incase you missed the collection, here is a sneak preview courtesy of style.com Practiacal.... Continue reading

ANTM is my guilty pleasure. Most of the time when watching it with Le dude' He will always comment on how ordinary looking the girls are and how I (god bless him for the flatterry) could easily be better. I always disagree because not only do these girls have that special something that makes them stand out, they can go from zero to FIERCE infront of the camera...not that we all didnt already know. Anyway, this episode they did the underwatershots! the transformation of this girl is just AMAZING!! plus I love this picture, I would love to do something... Continue reading

Everybody is talking about this cover: Picture courtesy of huffingtonpost.com If you want to learn more about Lea, The more feminine of the two on the cover go here. The cover is very Kate moss, and after everything I have heard, Lea might just be the next big thing after the wonder that is Kate throws in her towel. Plus it doesn't get any more hardcore than that :-)) (That's my 2 cents in the matter... I wish we could all just relax!!) Continue reading
