new in: timberland


After about a month of hinting that I really wanted these shoes from Timberland I got them for 
christmas from my dad! They are perfect for all the snow that we have here in Iceland but since
I am leaving for LA next week, I will pray for some rain there so I can use them there.

The perfect nail polish for Christmas and New Years Eve, red with glitters.
 Can it get any better than that? It looks really good by itself but I tried to put
one coat over another nail polish by OPI so it looks a bit darker but with glitters.

the second day of christmas

SHIRT: VERO MODA     SKIRT: H&M     SHOES: TOPSHOP

Yesterday was the second day of christmas, and as we know it the last one that we celebrate.
I wore my new shirt from Vero Moda that I am absolutely in love with and paired it with red
lips, a classic black skirt from H&M and my favorite new Topshop heels. This christmas has
been amazing and I am so lucky to have my wonderful family around me. In one week from 
today I will be on a plane to LA where I will stay for 3 months away from my family and 
friends. It will be so hard to be away but still it will be an amazing experience and I can't wait
to share it with you!

christmas day


DRESS: DONNA KARAN     SHOES: TOPSHOP

Yesterday I spent the day in my PJ's with my family like we usually do on christmas day. 
In the evening we went to a dinner party which was really nice, we had traditional icelandic
christmas food and watched old videos. I wore this Donna Karan dress which belongs to my
mother but I am absolutely in love with it. It's so light and I love the back of it.

new in: ray ban


Remember when I blogged about wanting these ray ban wayfarers (here).. Well yesterday
I finally got my pair from my boyfriend! I searched everywhere for them when we were in 
LA this year but they were sold out everywhere and i didn't want the small type since they
didn't really fit me that well. These are also brown but not black, I think that it is much prettier!

christmas eve

DRESS: ASOS     SHOES: TOPSHOP

I had an amazing christmas eve with my wonderful family! I wore my new Asos dress
which you can't see very well since the picture is quite bad but i paired it with my new
sky hight Topshop shoes and a black skinny belt. My christmas eve was very traditional
but weird since it was our first christmas without my grandmother that passed away this
year but i know she was there with us! I always eat at my mothers house and open my
presents there and then I go to my dad's house and open some presents there and have 
dessert. I got some amazing gifts this year and I can't wait to show you some of them later!
Hope everyone had an amazing christmas eve!

five things

I GOT THIS BEAUTIFUL NECKLACE ON
MY GRADUATION LAST WEEKEND, IT'S
FROM THE SAME DESIGNER AS MY FAVE
RING AND NECKLACE!

NOT THAT IT GETS EVEN CLOSER TO THE DAY
THAT I MOVE OUT, I FIND IT SO MUCH FUN TO 
GET SOMETHING FOR THE HOME! I GOT THIS
CANDLESTICK FROM IITTALA AS WELL.

ONE OF MY FAVORITE NECKLACES
THAT I GOT FROM MY DAD A COUPLE
OF YEARS AGO ON MY BIRTHDAY!

I RECENTLY DISCOVERED THAT ROYAL
BLUE AND MY RED HAIR GO VERY WELL 
TOGETHER..

CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS MAKES 
EVERYTHING SO MUCH MORE COZY!

i can't believe that tomorrow is christmas! in the beginning of the month i was so
excited but now i just don't feel like it's christmas already.. i can't wait to spend the
holidays with my wonderful family and friends! eating good food, listening to christmas
songs, watching movies and opening presents..

SHIRT: VERO MODA

i have the habit of browsing the zara online store way to often, and the other day while browsing
i saw the most amazing shirt with black details and collar but since there are only 13 days until the
big trip to LA i am trying to save up so i decided to skip buying it since it was kind of expensive. 
but today at the mall while shopping for the last christmas presents i found this shirt in vero moda 
and i couldn't resist. it was so much more affordable! i also got a bag from lindex that i will show 
you soon..

outfit: graduation

DRESS: ASOS     SHOES: TOPSHOP

as promised, here is a picture of my outfit for saturday! i couldn't have wished for a
better day with wonderful family and friends, i am truly blessed to have such amazing
people around me.. they made this day a thousand times better than i imagined. 
i'll show you more photos later and some of the beautiful things i got.

the christmas dress

DRESS: ASOS     SHOES: TOPSHOP

When i ordered my graduation dress i couldn't decide between two dresses. I thought about it
for days but for some reason I just couldn't decide which one i wanted so I ended with buying 
both of them! When I finally got them I tried on the blue one first and just fell in love with it so
I decided to wear that one since it was much more appropriate for a graduation. So I decided to 
wear the other one for christmas and I am thinking about pairing it with these topshop heels or
my jeffrey campbell foxy heels.. I can't believe that there are only five days until christmas! It
is my absolute favorite holiday of all!

yesterday was such a great day, the best one yet! it was my graduation day and i had
the best day with my family and friends.. it started out with a very very early morning 
of getting ready and then a long day at school that finished with the ceremony and then 
i had a graduation party for my closest family and friends. it was very cosy, there was
soup&bread, chocolate covered strawberry's and white wine, couldn't get any better 
than that! i am so lucky to have such an amazing family and friends that take such good
care of me and make me so happy.. i wanted to show you my dress and my shoes for

the big city

(photo via andres wijk - here)

i seriously can't believe, that after waiting for a year and a half.. that it is almost time! in 19 days.. 
yes just 19 days, we are going to los angeles! this is the first time that i am going away from my 
family for such a long time so i am so nervous and sad but excited at the same time. it will be so 
hard to be away from my family and friends, but at the long run this will be an amazing experience
that i will never forget. it's the perfect location.. sun, celebrities, rodeo drive, h&m and starbucks.

ps. just two days until my graduation, can't wait to show you my dress!

five things


EVER SINCE I BOUGHT THE RED LIPSTICK I SHOWED YOU A
COUPLE OF DAYS AGO I'VE BECOME OBSESSED! I LOVE THIS
HOT PINK LIPSTICK FROM THE BODY SHOP.

EVEN TOUGHT IT'S NOT QUITE BIKINI SEASON HERE IN ICELAND
I'M SO EXCITED FOR LA NEXT MONTH.. IT HASN'T BEEN THIS COLD
IN ICELAND IN ABOUT 50 YEARS! WE ARE TALKING ABOUT -15°C.

THE CUTEST TOP I BOUGHT IN FOREVER21 IN BOSTON LAST
YEAR.. IT WAS IN THE BACK OF MY CLOSET AND I FOUND IT
TODAY AND CAN'T WAIT TO WEAR IT!

A FEATHERED NECKLACE FROM LONDON.. LOVE THE COLOR AND
HOW IT MAKES THE MOST BORING OUTFIT SO MUCH MORE STYLISH!

EARRINGS FROM FRIIS&COMPANY BOUGHT LAST CHRISTMAS

after 3 and a half years of hard work i am finally free! today i finished my last test and all i 
have to do now is wait until december 17th for my graduation.. i decided today that i wanted 
to finish organizing my room so i could just relax the next couple of days! i love organizing 
because it just makes you feel so much better and it is always fun to find random things.. like
these earrings and necklace above.

red lips


COAT: MY MOM'S     FAUX FUR: H&M     LIPSTICK: MAYBELLINE FATAL RED

here are some really bad photos of yesterday's outfit.. i didn't stop to take any photos of it
at the concert because it was so crowded there. the concert was so beautiful and made me 
even more excited about christmas.. i loved listening to all the icelandic christmas songs with
my family! tonight i am going to spend all my time studying, first test tomorrow!

fatal red

MAYBELLINE FATAL RED

yesterday i went to the most beautiful christmas concert i've ever been to! it was so amazing
that i had goos bumps the entire time. i wore a black coat with my faux fur from h&m and a
sleek pony tail but i felt as something was missing so i went and bought this red lipstick! i've
never been a big fan of them, i've always thought that they just weren't for me but yesterday i
really wanted one and i don't regret it! i think that every girl should have a red lipstick in their
make-up bag.. it really makes the most boring outfit stand out!
