My workspace/bedroom/livingroom

It's snowing in Oslo...

...And it's REALLY cold outside! I don't think I have enough warm clothes. I started using wool underwear already in october, and even many layers of wool with my grandma's lambleather coat isn't enough! How would you combine vintage clothing with cold weather (we're talking 10-15 Celcius minus)? What did people do in the old days?

Jake the snake!

lørdag 13. november 2010


Hi! I'm sorry I haven't been posting anything lately. It has been so many changes and so much to do at school and work. I think I'm starting to get a hold of it now, so hopefully you will see more of me from now on! I have this weekend off and today my dog, Ludmilla, and I went for a long walk, and I've spend the rest of the day puzzling with my own sewing projects. In the pictures I'm wearing a woolen headscarf from a charity shop, a modified woolish top from the same shop, trousers from Zara and wool socks from H&M. Oh, and I coloured my hair even darker and took out the nosering!

The perfect formal dress

Dress bought at UFF. Woolen gabardine and pleated skirt. Probably from the 1940's. It had shoulder pads, but I took them out.

The blue dress with the all too tight waist!

I bought this dress at the Birkelunden market this summer. It fits me perfectly, except from that the waistband has no give, so if I eat more than, lets say, a pea, it is really uncomfortable! The dress is probably from the 1940's.

My skincare and makeup routines

This is me with no makeup. I'm originally blonde, and that shows on my eyebrows!

I use the seaweed skincare range and Nutriganics day cream from The Body Shop, and I use them twice a day usually. I try to not go to bed with makeup on.

The lightest matte foundation from Makeup Store...

All in One Face Base 01 powder and brush from The Body Shop...

It looks kind of scary with just the foundation and powder

Blush from Mac, and I don't remember where the brush is from.

I smile when I put the blush on and put it at the apple cheeks, and a little on the nose and under my chin.

Eyebrow shadow and brush from The Body Shop.

I usually dye my brows with permanent colour in addition to the eyebrow shadow, since my brows are very light and I don't have so much eyebrow hair.

Eyeshadow pallette from Estée Lauder.

I put the lightest on first, all over the lid up to the eyebrow and the dark one right under the eyebone.

Waterproof black liquid eyeliner from Isa Dora...

I like to draw the line a little bit beyond the outer corner of the eye, like they did in the 1950's.

Mascaras from Helena Rubinstein. The one with leopard print is definetly the best, but it's almost empty, so I use both.

And then to the lips: I use lipliner from The body Shop, and I put it all over the lips to make the lipstick last longer. The lipstick is from Mac (Matte Viva Glam 1), an edition where all the money goes to Mac's Aids fond.

The hair was washed and rolled up in curlers two nights ago and I hadn't done anything but brushing it since then.

Small Victory Roll on the side...

Hair clip from H&M that looks very old.
