Lift-off

Ix27m back to pay my old life of early flights and 48hr trips a visit this weekend ! Ix27m right now sitting at the airport waiting to board my flight to Italy for the FIRENZE4EVER event. This was quite a spontaneous move by me since I just made these travel plans about 30hrs ago. YOLO ! Lol anyway, Ix27m looking forward to meeting old friends again and to having some Italian pizza and coffee - gahh the coffee !! Ix27ll blog again later - smack ! Tumnagel

Blackie

Those of you who follow me on Instagram have already noticed this change; about six months later Ix27m back to my natural hair color. My ombré hair color is now gone and so is some of the length. Ix27m really happy about the change. I often get bored with my hair but I think this style will last for some time now. Tumnagel

Oops.. !

Soo.. my first fashion happening this year was that my boyfriend tumble dried both my favorite pairs of black jeans so they shrunk on the length. The thought of ankle short jeans isnx27t that bad, I love it actually so Ix27m keeping both for spring, but the fact that I donx27t have one pair of regular length black jeans now is whatx27s bothering me. So my first fashion hunt of 2013 begins NOW. Ix27m thinking of trying out jeans from Dr Denim or J Brand this time. Or do you have any suggestions of skinny black jeans I should go for ? Tumnagel

Brand new.

Happy 2013 everyone ! 2012 has been an incredible year for me in so many ways; I moved back home to Sweden, moved in with the love of my life, got a job at the buying office at H&M, I turned 25, I traveled to Dubai, Paris twice, Italy twice and Malaga with the most amazing family, three of my good friends had babies so you could kind of say that I became an auntie as well :-) Ix27ve been truly blessed really. But at the same time, 2012 has been a very heavy year for me. This hopefully and probably came to an end just yesterday, but I still need to deal with it. I hope I will be able to tell you more about this in the future, when things are better. But for now, I would just like to say THANK YOU to all of you who have been following my blog this year. I love blogging here and all of your feedback even though I have had to take several breaks lately. I hope you will stick around to see what 2013 has to bring through my point of view. Mwah !

DIY

Good morning ! What are you guys up to this beautiful Sunday ? Personally, Ix27m relaxing in the couch watching Discovery channel and sipping on some glögg (a Swedish Christmas drink thatx27s somewhat assimilated with mulled wine). I would normally spend a day like this off shopping decorations or furniture for our home or on DIY projects so thought Ix27d share one with you guys; My great love for copper and other different metals as home decor continues - I thought Ix27d share with you guys a DIY project that Ix27ve been keeping myself busy with lately. I bought some simple vases and flower pots in different shapes, colors and sizes from IKEA for example and color sprayed them in white and different shades of copper, silver and gold. I even used the same method for candle holders and a wall clock. Check out my results ! Tumnagel

THE GREAT GATSBY PARTY

Oh I almost forgot ! Last night we had our annual Christmas party with work and the theme for the night was this. Donx27t you just love the idea ? I wore a dress from H&M, headpiece from Panduro and Christian Louboutin pumps. Tumnagel

CROSSFIT

Tomorrow Ix27m going for my first session of crossfit training ever ! I am super excited but on the other hand.. Ix27m in my worst shape ever so Ix27m kind of nervous about how hard itx27s going to be. If I love it Ix27m going to do it for the next six months and just bust my ass until Ix27m back into shape. Perhaps Ix27ll make a training diary on my Instagram.. (btw Ix27m @sabaoffduty there !) Ix27m expecting the first two months to be HELL ! Ix27ll probably have to force myself to go there in the beginning but I am determined to make it. Has anyone of you ever tried crossfit ? Or are you trying to get into shape ? I love to hear about other peoplex27s training stories. Tumnagel

Current crush

This dress, here worn by Jessica Biel (sorry about her cropped face - it wasnx27t me), is one of the most excuisite creations Ix27ve laid eyes on lately. I am loving the mix of textures - lace and feathers.. The buttoned up collar and long sleeve. And the fact that itx27s white ! I donx27t know who the designer is but I would guess Givenchy ? Tumnagel

MMM x HM

Did you guys purchase anything from the Maison Martin Margiela x H&M collection ? I could have gone for the leather jacket, the duvet coat and the plexi glass ankle booties, but I had to brace myself. Ix27ve made a promise to myself that Ix27m going to finish buying all my Christmas gifts before I shop anymore this year. But I allowed myself to get this book from the collaboration.. Ix27d rather call it a literal investment, than shopping. Tumnagel

Nothing new

Another day, another struggle.. Luckily itx27s Saturday though. Ix27ve been fighting a terrible cold all week long and itx27s only been getting worse so today I stayed in bed, resting for as long as I needed. I left the house in my tracksuit to get my nails manicured, I headed back home, prepared for tomorrowx27s brunch (my friends from Italy are joining us tomorrow) and then I went back to sleep. Sometimes all you need is your bed.. Tumnagel

2.11.12

Such a lovely dinner yesterday ! I havenx27t been laughing as much as I did last night in a very long time.. My tummy got a great workout. And best of all - they love Stockholm ! They even mentioned that they could see themselves live here.. Thatx27s a pretty good grade, wouldnx27t you say ? Ps. I know many of you have a lot of questions (sorry I just checked my blog email) about working in or breaking into fashion and some of you even about working at H&M so Ix27m going to put one blog post together about this. Just to let you know though.. I donx27t have a step by step guideline on how to make it into the business. My best advice is to just work hard to reach your goals. Do your research, stay focused and love what you do ! Tumnagel

Cocktails and coffee

Ix27m so happy right now ! One of my best friends, Yigit, and my new found friend Nicolò are in Stockholm for a long weekend. I picked them up at the airport last night and tonight wex27re going to Pontus! for dinner. I havenx27t met Yigit since menx27s fashion week in Milan when he was working at Ermenegildo Zegna and me at Diesel. Hex27s now at Gucci and Ix27m at H&M so thatx27s just one of the thousands of things wex27ll be catching up on these next days.. Having lived in different countries, many of my closest friends donx27t live close to me, some not even live in Sweden. So when I finally get to see them again my heart skips a beat and we become like over excited 14 year olds - but with cocktails. But now back to my cup of coffee and to being a grown up going to work, which is pretty damn awesome too. Tumnagel

HEY !

I finally decided to get myself together and start writing in my blog again. I love doing it ! I just need to keep that flow of inspiration coming.. Chin up !

I currently work at H&M head office as a buyer assistant but prior to this amazing job I used to live in Italy and in Australia where I was both studying and working.

You might also come across some posts about food or training along the way. Ix27m happy to answer any questions you might have so please feel free to just ask. If not, I hope youx27ll enjoy my blog !

NEW JOB !

Idag har varit en riktigt spännande dag. Jag började nämligen jobba på H&Ms huvudkontor i Stockholm ! Jag sitter numera där och jobbar på inköpskontoret som inköpsassistent på damsidan, kul va ? Jag är helt slut efter en intensiv dag med massa nya intryck, men jag längtar redan till imorgon när jag ska tillbaka dig - det är en grym känsla, måste jag säga. Nu tillbaka till kvällsmyset i soffan ! Today has been a really exciting day. I started my new job at H&Mx27s head office in Stockholm ! Ix27m now working at the buying office as an Online Buyer Assistant on the ladies division. Ix27m completely exhausted after an intense day of many new impressions, but I still canx27t wait to be back tomorrow morning - thatx27s an amazing feeling, I must say. Now back to Tumnagel

SURGERY

This morning Ix27m having a surgery and Ix27m super nervous ! A while back I realized that my sight has gone really bad on one eye so now Ix27m having it fixed. Ix27ve been told that Ix27m going to suffer from a horrible pain the first day and Ix27ll have to use antibiotics the first week so please wish me a quick recovery ! Ix27ll be quite sensitive to sunlight right afterwards so I brought my Dior shades to literally tone everything down for me.. Itx27s my turn next so Ix27m out ! Tumnagel

BRUNCH

Vi hade så himla kul på min födelsedagsbrunch i söndags. Vädret var fint, sällskapet bäst och maten var gudomlig (tack älsklingen och lillebrorsan !). Fick även massa fina presenter.. bl.a Clean Warm Cotton parfymen som jag hade checkat in och skitsnygga champagneglas. På kvällen satt vi alla och titta på Spanien-Italien i vårt vardagsrum och senare på kvällen gick några av oss ut. Så igår var jag sisådär pigg och tog det mest lugnt. Idag spelade Lenny Kravitz på Gröna Lund så dit bar det självklart av efter jobbet. Letade även efter en ny resväska där emellan också.. behöver en mellanstor. Har bara cabinväska och en megastor. Förklarar senare varför jag behöver den just nu :-) --- We had such a good time at my birthday brunch on Sunday. The weather was nice, the company was the best and the food was exquisite (thanks bf and little brother !). I also got some really nice gifts.. Among other I got the Clean Warm Cotton perfume I had been checking out and stunning champagne glasses. Later on we all watched the European soccer championship game between Spain and Italy. And even later, some of us went out for drinks so I wasnx27t so keen on doing much. Tonight Lenny Kravitz was playing live at an amusement park nearby so thatx27s where I headed after work. I went looking for a new suitcase before as well.. I need a middle sized one. I only have a cabin bag and a super big one. Ix27ll later explain why I need one just now :-) Tumnagel

For we are young and free

Det är som att Stockholm blir till en helt annan stad när solen tittar fram ! Allt det vackra blir tusen gånger vackrare, alla människor blir så mycket gladare, man ser mer folk på stan och man kan inte låta bli att le. Kan inte Stockholm vara så här jämt, varje dag, året om ? Ikväll blir det studentmottagning följt av häng i stan med världens bästa Lisen som är på besök från Helsingborg. Och imorrn... Kl. 00.07 fyller jag 25 ! Längtat !! Åldrarna 23 och 24 har verkligen känts fjuttiga.. Nu fyller jag quinna ! Haha --- Itx27s like Stockholm turns into a whole nother city as soon as the sun is out ! All the beauty here gets even more beautiful, everyone around become so much happier, people are out more and you just canx27t help but smile about it. Canx27t Stockholm stay like this all the time, everyday, all year long ? Tonight Ix27m going to a graduation party and then to meet with sweetheart Lisen whox27s visiting from Helsingborg. And tomorrow... at 12.07 am Ix27m turning 25 ! Ix27ve been longing for it so !! The ages 23 and 24 have just felt so.. I donx27t know the English word for it, but letx27s just say rather youngish. Tomorrow Ix27m turning more ladylike ! Haha Tumnagel

Ombré

Jag lovade ju att jag skulle visa bild på vad jag gjort med mitt hår i fredags natt men jag totaldeckade vid 18 i lördags och vaknade inte förrän kl 10 dagen efter så det fick vänta lite. Jag har i alla fall gjort en ombre på mitt hår, dvs färgat topparna ljusare. Lite så det ser ut som en lång mörk utväxt upptil. Jag har typ drömt om att göra det så länge nu så det var dags. Like ? Jag älskar det ! Jag ska till och med färga det lite ljusare :-) Man kan ju gå till en frisör och fixa det men jag tog saken i egna händer och gjorde det själv. Eller pojkvännen fick ju faktiskt hjälpa till så det blev gjort samtidigt överallt men ni hajjar :-P Kanske gör ett DIY inlägg efteråt ! --- I promised I was gonna show you guys some pics of what I had done with my hair but I passed out on the couch at 6pm on Saturday and didnx27t get out of bed until 10am the day after. I was exhausted ! Anyway, I did an ombre on my hair ! Ix27ve been dreaming about ombre for so long now, it was about time I got it done. Like ? I love it ! Ix27m actually dying it even lighter soon :-) You could go to a hairdresser and get it done but I did it myself and Ix27m happy with the result. Or actually.. bf helped me out so Ix27d get it all the dye applied at the same time, but you get my point :-) I might do a DIY post later on ! Tumnagel
