Summer shoes ♥

Noen av de nye skoene mine, med trykk på "noen av". Jeg må desverre innrømme, kjære venner, at jeg nok en gang har hatt et tilbakefall av shopoholisme. Men pytt, fine sko da, sant? Jeg elsker at platåskoene er så rare at de er fantastiske, selv om de er skikkelige ankel-knusere og en gang sendte meg rett på trynet midt i gata ... jeg blødde, og greier!

Some of my new shoes, the key words being "some of". I regret to inform you, my friends, that I have indeed had yet another fallback of shopoholism. But hey, nice shoes, right? I love the quirkyness of the platforms, although they are proper ankle-breakers and once sent me flying on my face in the street ... there was blood!

Summer ball 2011

Look at us, all dolled up and smart looking for the summer ball. The ball had a 1940's theme this year and it was so lovely to see everyone who took the challenge and dressed up with a historical feel. I had this smooth plan of making finger-waves in Rolf's hair, but he was too busy for such nonsense so I had to make do with styling my own hair.

The ball was amazing, but right now I can't quite describe how much I love the summer holidays!

Sjekk den superkule ukulela mi! Kjøpte den for 200kr og jeg kan tilogmed spille litt på den! Misunnelig? Tenkte meg det ...

Check out my amazing ukulele! I got it for £20 and I can kind of play it too! Envious? Thought so ...

Harry Potter ♥

Once again, I am lost for words to describe how unbelievably excited I am! Have I mentioned that I'm staying in London for three weeks longer than I need to this summer, merely because I can't miss the last world premiere at Leicester Square, and the 3D release at the IMAX?

Well, I am!

ALSO, take a look here - where J.K. Rowling will announce details of her new project "Pottermore" in 5 days' time!

Dette må være favoritt-bildet mitt for tiden ... det er så fint at jeg ikke helt klarer å komme over det.

This must be my favourite photo at the moment ... it's so beautiful i can't quite get over it.

Beauty by gel

Hei, venner! Savner dere trynet mitt?

Vel, her har dere det, sånn i tilfelle. Mesterlig fotografert av meg selv og prydet, for første gang på veldig veldig lenge med ordentlig sminke! Jeg driter gjerne fullstendig i sånt når jeg blir for stresset - og la oss bare si at jeg ikke kan huske sist jeg ikke hadde en eneste ting å være stresset over. Jeg har oppdaget dette nye produktet fra Maybelline, en gelè-liner i ei lita krukke komplett med kost i pakken når du kjøper den. Den gir ikke den mest definerte streken med mindre du er ekstremt stødig på hånda, men den varer overraskende lenge uten å renne eller sprekke.

Hi, friends! Did you miss my face?

Well here it is, just in case. Masterly photographed by yours truly and adorned, for the first time in what feels like years with proper makeup! I have a habit of letting myself go pretty badly whenever I feel too stressed - and let's just say that I can't remember the last time I didn't have a thing to be stressed about. I have taken a liking to this new product from Maybelline, a gel liner in a pot complete with brush in the pack when you buy it. It doesn't give the crispest line unless you keep an extremely steady hand whilst applying it, but it lasts for a surprisingly long time without smudging or cracking.

Rainy days

Elsker du ikke regnet, når det ikke har regnet på lenge? Forrige uke var så kvelende varm at jeg trodde jeg skulle dø, men som den gamle regla går med slike kvelende uker så kollapset den til slutt å ble til en svær regnsky. Greit for meg (:

Jeg elsker spesielt lyden av regnet!

Don't you just love the rain when it hasn't rained in a while? The last week was so stuffing hot I thought I might die, but as it goes with all those stuffy weeks they somehow break down into a massive raincloud in the end. Works for me (:

I love the sound of the rain in particular!
