Wishes for 2013.

Merry Xmas

Xmas nails are on. Let's eat, drink, and be merry! 

Winter manicure

 The other day, when I walked around in town with Tina, we stopped by an art's & craf's store. My eyes fell for this gorgeous little can of glitter, and my mind immediately thought - oh, I need to try a nail design with this!

I think it turned out to be a fun, winter, glitter nail. 
And, of course, it look sooooo much more pretty in real life! 

White & clear nail polish and some sort of glitter

 Start off with a nice, white manicure :)

 Paint a coat with the clear polish and then apply your glitter

 Repeat on the other hand

To seal the deal, I applied two coats of Essie's "Good to go"

Aaaand voilà!

Spent the day with my lovely friend, Tina. We drank lattes, talked and laughed, walked around in a snowy Stockholm and did some christmas shopping. 

Psst... it's only 12 days left to christmas!

Happy B-day to me!

I have grown to be a little bit of a nail polish addict... Seriosly guys, I LOVE painting my nails. 
It's like I have 10 little mini canvases that I get to fill with colors! 

It's such  a creative process that I really enjoy and that I actually find kinda relaxing, wich is nice. 

And so, here we have my latest nail polish purchases. 
All from my favorite brand, Essie.

I am a tiny bit obsessed with the british union jack flag, so when I saw these my heart melted a bit.

I have now had this manicure a whole week and it hasn't started to chip or anything! 
Wearing American Apparel "Hassid" and ""Supernova".

8-ball pool

I suck at 8-ball pool, but damn it's fun!

Allie, trying to style a bit for fun...
...and then the surprise when you actually succeed!

Super excited for the glitter ones!

... I am speachless. 

This beautiful handmade sculpture is designed by the amazing John Foster. 
With it's uniqueness, shapes, colors and the way it sparkles on the walls - I am in L-O-V-E!



This is so me. This is how my apartment should look like. I LOVE light chains!


This is how I sum up my life these days - 
work, coffee, work, coffee, a little fun, coffee, work, nail art.

outline / border

For a couple of weeks ago I saw this new, cool nail design that I just had to try myself! 
Naturally my end results didn't really get as sharp but it turned out pretty decent, I think. I just have to practice to get the lines thin and sharp. Almost there.

My old D60 and my new D700. 
We shall not even attempt to compare these cameras, haha.

Orange Sunset Latte

Today I got the privilege to be the first customer in Sweden to be served with Caffè Ritazza's latest creation, the Orange Sunset Latte. And I must say, I was pleasantly surprised! When I first heard the combination of oranges - coffee, it curdled in my head. But I was proven wrong, because it was absolutely delicious! 

The coffee drink premieres monday, the 1st of October, and I am definitely going back for more. That's for sure.

Missoni for Lindex

I have been a huge fan of Missoni for several years now. And so it has been a little dream of mine to own something from their brand. So when I found out that Lindex was going to do a collaboration with Missoni my heart stopped for a bit.

I am now a proud owner of this gorgeous scarf that can multitask as a blanket in the couch.
