Happy Happy B-day!

Have been celebrating this pretty birthday lady all day long. Champagne in the sun with good friends is not a bad combination.

Happy B-day, darling. Age is just a number!

You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt; as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear; as young as your hope, as old as your despair.  ~Douglas MacArthur

Thomas Wylde Ibiza bag

My mother keeps reminding me about how amazing this bag is. I think she has mentioned a million times that she regret she didn't buy it when she had the opportunity. It´s two seasons old, and probably impossible to get. It would be so nice to long 70s summer dresses. Perhaps Nicole Richie is tired of hers? EBay here I come!

Outfit

Yesterday´s out and about outfit. YSL sunglasses, Ralph Lauren poncho, Jeans from Free People, Sweater from COS, and the shoes I got from Benedicte Ferner, but I can´t read the name of the brand, so if anyone knows..?

Wish list!

I was browsing Net-a-porter, and all though I have a lot of shoes, a woman just can´t have enough... With any of these a plain white T and pants will do, pain, simple but oh so chic..

YSL, Missoni, Louboutin, Reed Kakoff

Coloured nails?

I got this beautiful soft orange varnish from Revlon at the super marked when I was in the states, havn´t seen it here though(Norway) , but I absolutely recommend it for this spring... Love love love the colour! I´ve already used it in shoots.

...And am gutted that I forgot to buy the dirty yellow one from American Apparel, it looks so good on tanned skin.. Hey, next time..

so silly...

The Easter is over and now its back to work. I have some really exiting projects going on (and we also have some REALLY exciting news regarding the blog!!). I got the best Easter egg ever and I was also so lucky to get the Proenza Schouler bracelet and the Isabel Marant necklace in my Easter egg, in addition to half the candy store. Yay!

I also bought some funny silly Bands to my 4 year old Niece and she was so kind to give half the package to me. We like to call them friendsshipbands. The name speaks for itself, yes they are silly but I like them anyway!

Gisele in Paris Vogue

Am in love with this gorgeous editorial in Paris Vogue April. Gisele is my all time favorite model, and these pics shows why! The styling is delicate and effortless, and I´m loving that they used the same Vivienne Westwood boots in every shot.. It´s about time I get me a pair of these timeless badboys.. .

Outfit

Last outfit post from Texas this time around.. We went to the Butterfly museum to celebrate my mums birthday!

I am wearing my "brand new" vintage Celine wedges with a COS dress and necklace.. I have to show you some of the butterflies too, they were stunning and flying around everywhere..

Chanel Slippers

I got myself a little Chanel fix when we were at Moss Vintage in Austin... They look a little grandmothery, but I think they´ll look cute with shorts and skirts, and am hoping the weather stays nice and lovely in old Oslo, so I get to wear them!

Happy Easter!

Sunny Mulberry moment!

While I am at Easter holiday in the mountains (with no snow!!) I can only dream of the Coachella festival. These pictures from the Mulberry barbeque and pool party yesterday makes me lust even more. To celebrate and showcase the Autumn Winter 2011 season, guests were invited to pop along to the Gene Autry House at The Parker Hotel to view the collection, before taking some time out from Coachella festivities to laze around the Gene Autry Pool. Of course the guests were carrying their Mulberry´s while partying and sipping to berry mojitoes. I can´t wait to take my new white Alexa out for a summer stroll.

A splash of colours

I am always ending up with some new Essie colours when I am out travelling (don´t know why I never buy Essie in Norway?). Renate also told me about the "matte about you" polish that can be used as a top coat on all nail colours. Tried it on one nail in the store and I love the effect it gives. You should definitely try it!

Lunch Hour Outfit

A quick outfit post from my lunch today. Wearing GAP tank, T by Wang skirt and YSL shoes.. Now, I feel I´ve lost all my tan, so I´m rushing down to the pool to do some last minute power tanning! Have a good one!

Outfit

We were looking for  Ranch with horses for the last photo-shoot and found the most beautiful place. I have never seen anything so wonderful. We were met be the sweetest and most hospitable people that showed us around at the Ranch and were more than happy to let us borrow the horses for the shoot. I´ll never forget this place and wish we would never leave. We´ll make a new blog-post with pictures from the Ranch.

And of course I had to wear a cowboy-outfit..he he..

Wearing; cowboyboots; Vintage, shorts; Only, sweater; Ralph Lauren and cowboy hat from the local gas station.

Moss Vintage

When we were in Austin over the weekend we visited Moss vintage on South Lamar. It didn´t look like a vintage store, and all the pieces was in such good shape... And, as everything here, the prices were pretty awesome too!! Both of us came home with some goodies, we´ll show them a little later..

New in!

I nearly had a heart attack when I saw this Ralph Lauren poncho on sale, the earring were made by a local Austin Jewelry designer, Rima Hyena,  the shoes are Lines Chloe´s and the fabulous shorts are from Jofama. Today is a sad day, it´s our last shoot.. But, it´s going to involve horses and ranches so we are super excited! Have a wonderful day!!!

Outfit

When in Texas, dress like Texans do... Actually, I havn´t seen any girls dressing like this yet, so I´m hoping to start a trend.

This is from our shoot yesterday, it was so sunny and perfect! Today we have a Bikini shoot by the pool, so another day in paradise.. Still have to pinch myself and remember that I´m so lucky to have this job! Ok, gotta work, will post more later!

The perfect location

We had an amazing day today! Driving around in our super cute little rental KIA searching for the perfect location and found the perfect places. The model was amazing and we were so happy with the result. Finished today's shoot in the sunset!

Friendship bands

We all ended up buying handmade friendship bands at the Sunday market. Love how the fresh colours brightens up an outfit!

I remember I used to make these myself. Maybe I have to refresh my skills?

Sunday market

Line and photographer Renate.

Dreamcatchers and a beaded longhorn.

I am totally obsessed with longhorns. Need to bring one home!

Today we went to a Sunday market. We were kind of disappointed that we didn't find the perfect vintage boots with silver hardware. Crossing our fingers that the perfect pair might show in Austin. Ended up buying some Indian feathers, earrings and handmade bracelets. Had the best enchiladas, fajitas, burritos and tacos for dinner at a Mexican restaurant!

Now I am sitting at the hotel room, eating popcorn while getting some work done. So happy with the hotel room (we have our own micro oven! How amazing is that when you are a totally popcorn freak?). Tomorrow we are going on location spotting..

Out and about

After a hot sunny working day at the port we we went out for dinner and ate delicious seafood. Finished off with drinks at Mona Lisa bar. Today we are heading to a Sunday market and hopefully we will find some cool vintage cowboy-boots or other Texas stuff!

Bijoux

I love the Affordable Luxury, Linn Lømo and Dyrberg/Kern accessoires I pulled from This is Pr before we left for Texas, and can´t wait to style them on the model. Today we have the casting and location scouting. Tomorrow we plan to start shooting, it´s going to be so much fun, am super excited!

Montrose

We are enjoying ourselves so much over here! The weather is warm and sunny and spring is in the air...Unfortunantly our camera died, so these are the only pics we have from yesterday, but today our camera is fully loaded..! Promise a full update soon.
