Oh how I just can not wait to go to STOCKHOLM. Can't wait to be overjoyed with the refreshment of getting my hands on quality garments, one that can not be found in Iceland.
LOVE ALWAYS MY LOVELY FOOLS
Oh and hey, if you know a good vintage store in Stockholm, let me know!

I'd steal those kids outfits any day, don't you agree?

Finally I found the right skin care regime! So here is what I do. I put a thin layer of pure aloe vera gel under everything. Then every night about half an hour before I go to sleep I lather on vaseline. I don't take to much, because it's really sticky, and I rub it really, really well, deep into the skin. My skin is very red. I am just always really red on the cheeks and nose and chin. I don't know why, if it has to do with the sun or what. But aloe vera really does the trick. Now that I think of it, this is something I should of realized a long time ago.

Fall is my favorite. It's a new season, some of us start school again, we get back to work while still enjoying the memories of the summer. It's a fresh start. For everything. I just about love fall shopping and it is entirely inevitable to not shop for the fall. Weather is changing, it's getting colder and it's just not a place for a bikini and a pair of sandals. Me and my darling mother are going to Stockholm October 13th, just when the weather starts to hit it's coldest. I am so excited to visit Stockholm. Not only is it a beautiful place to be at, but the shopping is amazing! I love it when I am about to travel to a far away land, I plan every. little. thing. I have already decided what I need to buy and what I am going to let myself buy. It is so seeing trends and all the new stuff in stores. Although I hate to follow trends, I have to say I am loving them!
I just love how flawy and airy her outfit is. And how she buttons her shirt all the way up and leaves the necklace under the collar. Wow that is an amazing touch aaaaand her shoes look so much like my masalas!
And Karen Walker does it again. I love, love, love, love it! The first one is the best, I love the short suit thing she has going on over there. I am telling you, the prints, the colors, the combinations are gorgeous.
Again, loose, flowy and gorgeous shoes.
This is the most perfect example of the layering that shows up fall after fall after fall. She has wool, chambray and flannel all in one look and it looks so easily achievable.
Layering. Flow. Polka dots.
Another good example of layering. Love it, love it, love it. I love how well the pattern and the colors go together, it's like they were made for each other. And talk about being jealous women in the front in black with turquoise necklace.
Colors in: SHERBET. Enough said.
Love Always guys.
P.S. I am sincerely sorry how often I used the word 'love' in this post.

Loving my new camper sandals!
Although summer is over and the weather is cold, I'll be able to use them tons.
I'll just add some thick wool socks.
Today is a tragedy for so many. Ten years ago, the most horrifying crime in all humanity was committed. This day will never be forgotten. I let myself remember it by remembering all the heroes and people who truly sacrificed their lives for others. Many were lost but if we were to think of one good thing that day it would be that it brought us all together.
This is my favorite coverage of them all. If I can have a favorite one. I love the perspective and innocence.

Wow, it has been one heck of a summer! My posts have been a bit on the downlow but I am pleased how many views I am getting hence my lack of update. I have been up to many great things, camping trips, bbq's, trips to the beach (yeeeah Iceland has a beach), eating delicious food, Gay Pride festivities, downtown shopping, hazing at my new school, a school trip for the freshmen that was beyond amazing and just chillin' with ma family. Good news, last week I got a new camera!! Which means tons of photos will be taken for the blog. I used to use a point and shoot but it just had such crappy quality and I rarely liked the pictures I took. Now I got an Alpha Nex-3 Sony camera with a 16mm lens and it's just a page turned in my life. Such good quality in dim light and bright areas. I'm no photography fanatic so the Alpha Nex kind of outweighed the thought of a DSLR and I couldn't be happier. With no further ado I will show you guys some photos!
Me after my first day of school! I don't really like my face expression, it's like I am a balloon-head! But I loved the colors so I allowed myself to let it be. Let it be.
My little brother down by the sea. I swear to god that is my favorite place here in my town. We biked for 5 minutes and got to this beautiful place just by the freeway there is only a wall of grass in between that totally soundproofs the spot. It is was so peaceful and serene.
Oh and yeah, the sun does shine in Iceland.
My brothah taking a photo of me being such a pro with the camera!
My brother, my sweet joy.
Tomatoes, homemade croutons, garlic, coriander, more garlic.
My mom does wonders in the kitchen.
Me being proud of my brand new bike-basket!
Bike-basket, is that a word?
ME. Although it looks like my breast is falling out hahah! It is not, just shadows playing with ya.
My new Camper Malasas! SOOOOO GORGEOUS! I have a thing, a fetish for Camper shoes. I absolutely must show you them on my feet sometime!
I wore them to my first college party.
Wow I am loving my life, I am in college now.
So hard to believe!
Some awesome photo I stumbled upon. Love the color coordination.
It really does brighten a room!
Rumi Neely's beyond gorgeous photo of Central Park from her hotel window!
I have been listening a lot to an Icelandic band called GusGus. Kudos if you have heard of it! Their songwriting is so amazing. Something I have never experienced, I get inspired when listening to their music. This feeling of nostalgia dawns on me, like I realize life is short and despite me being 15 years I should start doing everything I've ever wanted to do in my life because it might be over soon and the chance might be gone to fulfill something I was looking for. It also brings this horrible feeling like my life is over and I look back and realize my life was a waste, I wasted it doing nothing. They must be one hell of a band if ALL THIS comes from listening to their music. I definitely recommend this song called within you. Listen below. I am basically ordering you to listen, it is so good.
I have decided it is just a good inspiration. I am going to start to smile more, and act on my instincts more, say yes more, compliment others more. Not because I am afraid my life will end tomorrow, just for increasing the quality of my life and others.
Oh and I am forgetting the big news! I am going to Stockholm october 13th!!!!! I'd love to hear from all of you guys who have been there or even better, live there! Tell me where to go, where to shop, where to eat, what to do, what to see. I'd love to hear.
Oh an guys I hope you enjoy New York fashion week! Even though it's through the computer or with your bare eyes, I truly hope you enjoy it.
Love you guys!
