Hey all!

It was a sunny Sunday today, but instead of making plans on my only day off, I decided to have a much-needed time to rest at home. Even my Instagram hasn't really been updated much lately, but I'm taking as many work shifts as I can before I leave for Australia. In other words, I haven't done much that is share-worthy or fun to read about, but I reckon it will all be worth it later.

I'm just dropping by to say "hi", and I hope you all have had a good Sunday so far!

I also wanted to share some pictures of Friday's outfit. I'm absolutely loving this flare sleeved blouse that makes me feel like a princess when I'm roaming the streets of Oslo. Even in regular black jeans!

Hey all!

As you can read in the title, I have FINALLY made a change to my hair!

After receiving a collaboration request from NATURIGIN, I went straight onto their homepage to read more about their hair care products, as well as the hair colours they've got to offer. What caught my attention was their all-natural and organic products, which are cruelty free and doesn't contain chemical ingredients that can potentially damage your hair and scalp. However, I was sceptical as to whether or not any of the hair colours would work on me. Especially when even their scale of what result to expect based on different hair colours didn't even include people with black hair. That made my decision of which colour to try out even harder. I just knew that I wanted brown hair, and so I picked a blonde hair colour, hoping it would show at least some result on my hair.

I went for the shade Light Ash Blonde 8.1 (HERE)

Due to my long, dark, and Asian virgin locks, I honestly didn't expect anything at all. I have learned that Asian hair is especially hard to work with because it can't absorb hair dye very well compared to blondes or brunettes.

But what can I say? You can see for yourselves from the pictures I've provided, and see a significant difference from how my hair used to look like - dark, sparse and lifeless. Now, my hair looks more voluminous and is definitely softer and fuller, not to mention the fact that the colour I envisioned really showed!

Naturigin

The process is rather straight forward. You mix the colouring cream and the activator which is included in the box, shake it, and apply it evenly on you hair. Then you wait for 30 minutes and "rinse it off". I'd say just take a full shower honestly.

After dyeing my hair and blow drying it, it feels like I just stepped out of a hair salon. My hair felt smooth and lucious, and I can't stop touching it.

PS. If you have long hair like me, I would recommend to use two boxes of hair dye to achieve the best result.

I'm really excited about this new hair colour of mine, and would definitely recommend this brand if you want to try at-home hair colouring! For my Norwegian readers, NATURIGIN hair products can be purchased at VITA and Apotek1.

Have a lovely day! xx

Last Saturday I took a day off work to catch up with my good friend Camila (@Gambitsky) now that she's back in Oslo after roughly a month of being abroad. We decided to meet up at the botanical gardens to take some pictures, before we went to grab dinner and desserts afterwards.

Once again, I'm wearing one of my mom's vintage clothing. This is the skirt that she used to wear often during her young adult days. I remember seeing her wear this skirt when I was a little child, adoring how beautiful she looked in it, and hoping that one day I would be able to wear it too. Wearing my mom's preloved vintage clothing makes it feel much more special and unique, especially knowing that it's one of a kind.

Have a great Sunday!

Last week I went on a little shopping spree before work with my mom, and found the cutest pair of denim jeans at ZARA. I didn't even hesitate for a second to purchase the jeans after seeing the cute details on it. I'm absolutely loving the fringe and little stitching detail that says "overdressed". SO cute!

As for the off-the-shoulder ruffle top, I've worn it a couple of times before, and I always get questions of where I got it from. I have always had a thing for my mom's vintage wardrobe after seeing countless of pictures from her younger days. Especially after knowing that she has kept her favourite garments all these years. This top is one of them, and it's gorgeous!

After my last collaboration with SheIn, I was so happy with the denim jacket I got that we decided to do another one! If you haven't seen that post already, you can read it HERE.

The kimono

Once again, I was looking for a floral dress, but I always ending up choosing another tropical substitute. So till this day, I'm still without a summer dress, but I just had to have this kimono when I found it on their page. It's elegant and the pop of colours on this garment compliments the black in my outfit so well, making simple look dressy.

If only I was actually in a tropical country or on an island in this kimono..

I haven't been blogging as much lately, but nowadays I work pretty much everyday. Sundays are the only days I've got off, so I have pretty tight routines that kind of takes over my days already. I do have a lot of blog topic ideas in mind, but it's just the actual execution that is the problem at the moment.

Location scouting, outfit styling, props, shooting... You name it. It's a long process requires needs time.

But I don't have time. *cries*

And while we're at it, I'm actually headed to work soon, so this is just a little greeting and update from me. I'll sneak in a couple of posts here and there when the time allows it.

Oh, and the lovely sparkle I'm wearing on my ears is from LUNAMIÈRE!

Speak soon! xo

My style is more dressy and feminine than casual and laid back, so the summer season is without a doubt my favourite season. A positive, double-digit celsius degree on the weather scale means that I get to dress up in lighter clothes than thick winter jackets and big scarves. In other words, I feel more fresh and presentable during summer.

Flower power

Probably as everyone else, I've been having a thing or two for floral prints lately. It's summer after all, so anything tropical is definitely season-appropriate. I have therefore been looking for a summer dress of some sort, with all the leaves and the flowers and the trees.

But oh my, this jumpsuit!

I fell in love as soon as I saw it.

I love wearing clothing that speaks for itself, without needing to add accessories as a contribution to complete my outfit. It's perfect for days when I don't have the time or energy to overthink and style an outfit, so prints and patterns can just do the job for me. Today is also that kind of day.

With that being said, I'll have to run to the police station to renew my passport. I'm actually planning to move to Australia by the end of next month, so I better get things done as soon as possible to prevent any delays in my plans.

Have a beautiful day!

Love, Elizabeth
