Donna Karan Gold

I want this perfume so bad!
To me there hasn't really been any perfume that could compete with Guerlian's insolence until now. This perfume is different, but so unique. I just love it <3 I've asked around for it everywhere, but they don't get it until Christmas. I'll look for it in England when I go there in a few weeks...

I'm not a very big fan of MisShapes, but here are a few favourites :)

Northern design online is a charming netshop where you can get Scandinavian designer clothing. If you're one of those people who miss unique clothes and are looking for something that's not mainstream, then visit this small online boutique. At Sally-B you can find hand knit sweaters from Gudrun & Gudrun and fun print dresses from Ivana Helsinki. My personal favourite has to be the new Danish brand, Nümph. I would kill for a pair of check elvirial knickers. They look fantastic <3

Hairy thoughts

So lately the only thing that's been on my mind is hair. I think the reason why I've become so obsessed is because I was so unhappy when I got my new haircut recently. I hate the fringe, it's too short and now I'm unhappy with the colour too. It's just too blonde. I used to bleach it at home so the highlights look fat and uneven. Then I just gave up on it and now I have really dark roots. I'm saving my hair for a while now, but in November I'm getting a new colour. For a while I considered colouring my hair in a really dark chocolate brown colour like I used to have it a few years ago... but then I have to colour it all the time to keep it looking shiny and fresh... not into that. I want a slightly darker colour -something between blonde and brunette. A warm colour. So I browsed trough some MK photos and I just love the colour she used to have a while back. If I can get something that looks a little similar to this that would be great <3

Our van!

Okay, so this doesn't have anything to do with fashion... but I still feel like sharing <3 Recently me and some friends bought a van for our graduation celebration. It's called RUSS and is a long tradition here in Norway. Our school colour is red -which explains the colour of the van. We are traveling in this to all the different RUSS events taking place all over the country in May '08. We're so excited!

I got a thing for purple

It's a mysterious colour. Purple is associated with both nobility and spirituality. Purple has a special place in nature: lavender, orchid, lilac, and violet flowers are often delicate and considered precious. It's said that a purple room can boost a child's imagination or an artist's creativity. The opposites of hot red and cool blue combine to create this intriguing colour. Because purple is derived from the mixing of a strong warm and strong cool color it has both warm and cool properties. Deep or bright purples suggest riches while lighter purples are more romantic and delicate. Use redder purples for a warmer color scheme or the bluer purples to cool down. Green and purple can be a striking combination in deep or bright jewel tones or use lighter shades for a cheerful, springlike feel. Pink and purple has feminine appeal.
If you get it right you'll make quite an impression.

Purple has been everywhere on the fall runway. At DKNY Chanel Iman was wearing a very cute purple mini and short jacket with a sequined top. At Versace my favourite model, Hilary Rhoda, was wearing a beautiful purple gown and Tracy Reese had some cute outfits -one of them being this one with dotted stockings.

While I was browsing Facehunter the other day I found some pictures of these beautiful people. My favourite picture has to be the girl in the purple dress who's holding an orchid... how cool is that? Pictures from facehunter -of course.


I'm not a big fan of wearing purple with black because I think it looks too dark and Gothic. Instead of wearing black try something like a really nice pair of dark denim jeans and a cropped jacket. This really cute top from French Connection has an interesting print and by adding mustard coloured accessories this outfit really comes together. The high sandal wedges from Topshop are fantastic! Instead of wearing pumps these will give you a sporty and urban look :) Product details can be found here.

A deep eggplant purple with neutral tans or beige is an earthy, conservative color combination with a touch of the mystery that purple provides. You can also add a few pink accessories to get a more trendy look -like this scarf and one of the bangles. Product details can be found here.

Ideally this warm purple colour would go better with a warmer metallic -like gold or bronze- but I actually think this grey mini and silver accessories go well with it. A pair of bright purple tights will bring that little extra to your outfit. product details can be found here.

Another nice way to add colour to your outfit are these wonderful purple skinny jeans from Topshop. Dress it down with grey and silver details. This way you'll get a fun, yet sophisticated, outfit. Product details can be found here.
