Grey worship aside, a little -bold- print never hurt a cloudy day, especially when it’s reminiscent of safari surroundings (a travel must). Newly acquired Isabel Marant for H&M fringed babies don’t even need a reason to go out and play, so there you have the under 5 min dress up. Wild at heart and animal print clad, cause a girl has to start from somewhere (closet being the nearest).
Well, it’s official. Me and the LG G2 are sticking together. 3 fancy covers arrived just today (one in metallic pink, one in lilac and one girlishly dotted) so we both will be working on our wardrobes.
We are still getting to know each other but the more time time we spend together (is there more than 24/7?) the more we like each other. I have progressed into grouping my contacts so as to use a different led light color notification for each (mom you’re pink), I have wallpapered every app and personalized -almost- everything. I really am hands on with the quick memo feature, scribbling down notes or playing tic tac toe (mostly work that is) and enjoy endless (LG battery I love you) e- window shopping and magazine flipping (also work) on the full HD 5.2” display.
So in addition to the previous “I’m lovin’it” post declaration, I’m also keepin’ it. And lovin’ it at the same time.

Veni, vidi, visa.
I came, I saw, I shopped. And it was an utter achievement to grab these babies in between war like chaos and life threatening pushing around (the display cartons were literally falling on us) at the H&M press event.
If you’re considering getting them, they are really really really great, a wardrobe staple for sure AND pretty classic (don’t know if they’re worth risking your life over like I did though), they run true to size and cost 199 euros.
Why, do I need an excuse? The beach is there, deserted, quiet, full of little seashell treasures, the occasional dogs-walking-by and the dedicated water sports guys (a nice view altogether). The sea is serene, tranquil and more beautiful than ever. You just look at it and you become it. Saves you a whole lot of meditation time (I also have an app for that but that’s a different AND irrelevant story).
I just wish I had the guts to take a dip.
For all of us indecisive creatures, who take our time (eternity and a day) to choose between the simplest of things, one plain color is never enough. Because we love them all. And want them all. So I wanna wear black, but I also wanna wear white. And although I adore some mix n matchin’, I sometimes wanna go with something minimal-ish. Hence the mariniére alternative, the bicolor sweater (and hooray, boots too!)
Bought in Stockholm, a couple of (many) years back, these bubblegum pink Reebok Freestyle Hi sneakers (Jane Fondas favorites) are seriously one of the best purchases I’ve ever made. And boy, have I done many.
I remember how the cool Swedish crowd used to sport them, in their tight jeans and biker jackets, all casual comfy and super stylish, each one of them owning a different shade (which I envied respectively). I was this close to buying them in a fab lemon color combo but the unicorn-loving girl inside me won (as usual) and here we are.
Maybe my life would have turned out differently If I had.
If I were a color, I would be fuchsia. A vibrant, look-at-me shade, saying I’ve grown since pink but screaming fun. I would fancy up with intricate headbands and rows of necklaces or I would play it cool matched with black boots, killer biker jackets and Ray Bans. I would enjoy milkshakes at Drive Ins and tasteful miniature cakes at parties. I would eat take out on china and serve champagne with pizza. And I would be the happiest of them all.
If fuchsia was a girl, it would be me.
Raindrops and chill. I say we embrace the cloudy, melancholy filled weather with long, knit cardigans (fringing at the ends a happy bonus) and very hot, very dense and definitely very dark chocolate. I personally plan to invest in MORE grey everything and camouflage it under asphalt, charcoal, gunmetal (I can go on naming all 50 shades), just to justify new purchases of the exact same color. Then, dressed in a muted, cozy palette I’m gonna throw on my patent killer heels and dance the winter away.
And immediately after change into Uggs faster than you can say Jack Robinson.
What spends more time on my fingers than my favorite ring, is the one thing I DO remember to always take with me and is more useful than my brain (at most occasions)?
Meet cell phone extraordinaire, brand new and super powerful, LG G2.
Needless to say, it was love at first sight. Simply knock on to open a full HD 5.2 inches display, the LG G2 takes Instagram-ing and social media surfing to a whole other level (once you go this big, you can never go back), photo taking and sharing that good and easy you kind of never want to use your camera again and has so many features it drives a blonde girl crazy (in a good, endorphin filled way).
And although I eagerly embrace technology, it’s LG G2s sleek design that makes me want to show it around and boast about the true to nature colors, quick notes ON the screen (I’m turning into Picasso faster than I thought) and cool shooting modes and apps.
Show it off yes, but don’t expect me sharing this gem with anyone else. Ok, maybe you can navigate through guest mode. Life is good and I am feeling hospitable.

If you’re not plaid-ing it, you’re doing it wrong. I am so check print bombarded, I’m even dreaming about it; it’s a sweet dream let me tell you, with my hands on the Celine version. If you haven’t yet indulged, there’s still time. Go get your tartan injection now. No need to worry about the where, either; boyfriends’ closet is surely nearby.
And borrow a pair of jeans while you’re at it.
