A good hair day

corinfixcorrihaarTomorrow I´m going to Greece, so I decided to color my brows and lashes, as they usually turn white in the sun, and lucky for me, my good friend and hairdresser, Corinne had time to cut and highlight my hair too. So now I´m coiffed and ready for the hot Greek sun, with hair SPF off course.

PS. The weather in Oslo is so hot, I keep having to change clothes, have a cold shower and head out again. So here I´m wearing a souvenir T-Shirt from somewhere in New Orleans (slightly customized gift from mum) Levi´s cut-offs, Acne Sandals (my blisters almost cover my heels) And thin braided belt from Lindex

Photo Shoot

A few weeks ago we did a shoot in the botanical garden in Oslo, it was a beautiful and fun filled day. This time its a long post, so I hope you like it.

I also want to say that even if I don´t always answer (I´m trying to get better) I really  do love the comments, and if you are like me, I used to be afraid to comment, don´t be, you can do it anonymously. The reason why I am saying this is that I see how many of you that checks out my blog every day, and I would love to hear from you, good or bad!

Anyways, here is the fun photo shoot, oh and I promise that as soon as any of the shoots are out on the newsstands I´ll post them!styleMe @ workviSkip Skip Skip tKirsti checked out the light, I took the opportunity to strike a pose.

Weekend Heat

This weekend was insanely hot in Oslo, so we decided to check out the temperature on the Oslo nightlife. First we went to Emil & Samuel, and then we went on to enjoy some lovely refreshing frozen margaritas at B&M Tjuvholmen. mglenaMe and Lena

I was wearing a second hand top and jumpsuit, and shoes from Aldo, and my RayBans. Check out Lenas cool shoes! megIts all about the pout (and the shoulders)IMG_0731.JPGJulies jacket was from Zara, lucky girl got it on sale...partyLena, Julie and HelleIMG_0722.JPGSweetie Stine from Polhem PR

Yesterday...

marieI did an extensive jeans guide, and this time I even photographed it... But lovely Marie from Team(pictured)made my job very easy. So surprisingly photo/make-up/styling/writing isn´t such hard work after all. Maybe I shall start modeling too, and make a one woman magazine...

MAG Fashion series teaser

Last January Photographer Isabel Watson, Linda Wickman (on make-up and hair) and me (styling) went to Miami to do a few fashion series for MAG magazine in Norway... This is from the July fashion editorial we did. I love this picture, the lighting and mood. New MAG is out any day now...sandy

Today

I thought I´d be a good girl and post my outfit before I actually left the house. My morning face was not ready to be photographed, but my new shoes were!todayThe T-Shirt and jeans (which, if you were wondering, are awesome) are both from H&MacneAnd the new lovelies are from Acne, sale... I am a lucky girl..

Last weeks photo shoot

Last week I had a couple of photo shoots, and one of them was with new model Hanna from Team. I think Hanna is one of the most beautiful girls I have ever seen, so we were mesmerized when she started doing her thing. Such a gem, really nice to work with. Am awaiting the result in excitement...ikliOk, this is the best I can do for a outfit post, belt second hand, singlet- flat mates, shorts weekday, shoes from styling from Bronx, (model was wearing mine, as her feet hurt)

ELLE party

megogsamiraMe and Samira from Spalt PR I was so lucky I got to borrow next seasons American Retro dress, from the lovely girls at Mildh Press, thank you! I actually can´t remember where my shoes are from, I had no time to go home and change, so I bought them on my way down there. They were on sale though so it was a bargain, eh... And off course my favorite bag, that followes me everywhere is from Diesel.pressekontakternaThe pretty girls from Pressekontakterna light up the terracekathrineBeautiful Kathrine from Mildh Press (my partner in crime) and I had to sit close to try and keep warm on the freezing rooftop.. marcjacobsThey had put this tree of glasses in the middle of the dance floor, so who was I to turn down trying on next seasons sunnies? I believe these ones are from Marc Jacobs, sweet!

Sthlm...Last week

So a few of us fashion journalists and stylists got to go to Stockholm last week, to have a look at the new collection from La Redoute. The collections was clean and in true spirit of Brand. There was a also some special pieces designed by Alexis Mabille, who unfortunately couldn't make it ...

Sthlm part deux

Tomorrow, I get to fly off to Stockholm again. This time it is to see the new collection for La Redoute. Last time, they had some impressive shoes, so it´s very interesting to see how they have evolved.  I cannot wait, maybe there will be some Swedish shopping time too after... I already know the shops I must get to too, it´s Weekday, Beyond Retro, TopShop, American Apparel and maybe Urban Outfitters. Just looking, hehe . Yei, must get a few hours sleep now, before the fun begins...tiah_eckhardt_smagazine_The lovely picture is from S Magazine. Photo: Warwick Saint, Styling: Christina Chin, Model: Tiah Eckhardt

But she is a true pro and didn´t complain once.heleneI borrowed this beautiful jacket from Gina Tricot, the new collection, as our poor needed to be warmed up in between takes.

Bedtime!

I have a shoot in the morning, with Helene from Team as the model, whom I suspect will soon reach model superstardom. So I´ve warned you... Watch this space..

I have forgotten to post the shoot I did with her last week, will do tomorrow, now I have to get my beauty sleep, before the shoot day, fun fun fun!

Gina Tricot Press Day!

ginatricotToday I had the pleasure of joining Midlh Press to get a sneak preview of Gina Tricots upcoming collection. I found some really nice pieces and was happy to supply styling for my shoot tomorrow.

And I got enjoyed a coffee and chat with my fashionable colleagues. 

meg9I was wearing my moss green suede harem pant, from a salvation army shop in Stockholm (I am living in them these days), Opening Ceremony shoes, TopShop t-shirt and Lindex belt.

Here are some of my instant favorites..vest1jakke2This feels like silk and is 299 NOK!! Fabric falls beautifully.ginaI am kind of sick of studs, but some that are not really studs, more like pearls I like. Take this one for example. Stunning! beltIt´s a beltloryogkatrineLovely Lory and Katrine from Mildh Press were hosts, they have to deal with my ditsyness on a nearly daily basis, poor girls.sarahog-karolineBoth Sarah from Carousel and Fashion Editor of Woman Magazine, Karoline looked stunning!

 

New MAG!

mag06_001Beautiful Leighton Meester graces the new cover of MAG. I did the fashion pages in this issue, including styling a slick swimsuit fashion story shot by Isabel Watson, with Linda Wickman on Make-up and Hair and lovely long legged model Carrie from Wilhelmina Miami. I also did a six page bikini and swimsuit special, plus lots of fashion news and trends.

MAG is as usual full of good reading, so enjoy ! 

Outfit

meg111 vest11 sko11I have pretty much forgotten to have my picture taken while out and about as of late.. (Still find it a bit awkward..) But here is a picture my boyfriend took of me on Friday, while I was picking out some styling at Polhem PR.

Except from the jeans that are from Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair everything else is pretty cheap. The shoes are from DinSko, I fell in love with them at a shoot I did in Miami. The vest is from Urban Outfitters and the basic T-shirt is from Mango The huge hat is not mine, I had to try it on for obvious reasons...

Dream necklace

I figured this wonderful necklace deserved its own post as it is so stunning. I am getting Madonna "Like a prayer" goose bumps from it. Am so into the peace signs and Madonna crosses these days. I think it was the shoulder pads and MC Hammer pants doing. Anyways, AllSaints sends to Norway too, so I´m ordering..

New Kate for Topshop

bilde-21My interest for this collection has drifted slightly, because it has grown so large. But I have to say I kind of fell in love with this fringed vest. It would look awesome over a simple white worn tee. Good thing I am going to Stockholm next week, it needs to be hanging in my wardrobe..  

Freudian @ Freudian

Last week I was lucky enough to join the sweet girls at pressekontaktarna for lunch, and after we took some time out to have a look see at one of my favorite Oslo stores, Freudian Kicks.meg8In borrowed rags.

I was wearing a comfortable outfit, the shoes are DonDonna, The jeans BikBok, the jacket is my flatmate Janickes, and the scarf is my boyfriends

The week before, Freudian Kicks launched their new hand sown collection Freudian Kicks by Freudian Kicks, and I got to try on a few of the goodies..shortsI loved these shorts, sorry about the blurry pics.
