Took an amazing, refreshing walk on the beach with my parents the other day. Here in Sweden we are very lucky and enjoying some kind of Indian summer. Temperatures this high in this time of the year are quite unusual. Tomorrow if the weather forecast is right we can expect another lovely sunny day. So the question is what to do with a beautiful day like that?
Wish you all a great weekend, beautiful weather and hope you all take time to do something special! :) XOXO Nicky ♡
I have been absent the last couple of day I know, but in my defense I had some problems with my laptop. We installed Lion on my Mac because my husband thought I should upgrade, but it turn into a mess. I don’t even know why I agreed to do this since I was pretty happy with Snow Leopard. Anyway the problem is solved for now and I’m back!
Today I’m posting a picture of a beautiful flower-arrangement I shot in a boutique a while ago. I love the vase and the flowers are stunning, don’t you think? Now I’m going to update myself on what’s going on in the “blog world” and check out some of my favorite blogs. I hope you are having a great day and that you have been missing me like crazy! :D :)
It´s been a while since I was in Copenhagen which is a shame really because It is one of my favorite cities in the world! It’s really close to where I live so I have no excuse not to go. I love the flowers, the pastries, the design and the convenience of being able to hope on the train and after a short 20 minutes ride getting off in a different country. No passport, no language, no fuss, no problem! :) It´s truly wonderful to get away for a micro vacation for a few ours and take in all the creativeness and energy of this great city. I think its time for a visit, I need new inspiration! :)
A few pictures from the other day. Lately I have a unusually need to be out in nature. I lose myselfin the colors, the sounds and smells. Nature has excellent life force energy, it helps me to restore my batteries, to focus, to reduce stress and improve my ever changing mood. I live in the city and although it’s nice to take a walk in the park, it’s not the same as walking in the misty dark woods. There is something primitive and organic about the woods, It’s a place where I can be quiet in silence and actually hear the voice of reason and purpose. I should do this more often!!
I love this book by Courtney Love, well actually is not really a book. It is more like a collage, a collection of old photographs, journal entries, letters, poetry, handwritten song lyrics and notes. Love writes in her introduction: "I have always said that I would never write a book, and I really haven't." It's true—"diaries". I find it honest, intimate and bold! This “book” feels very unedited even if it is edited. Some people will probably find it provocative, dark maybe even distasteful, as some of the highlights include a suicide-note-like apology letter. There are some great pictures in it too and in my opinion it should be perceived as artwork rather than a coffee-table book. Dirty Blond is not for everyone but personally I find it inspirational and moving. I really like the visual layout and inspired to do something similar myself, a scrapbook that reflects my own triumphs, demons, dreams, past and persona. I'm endingthis post with a quote by another great blond :)
“Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it's better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.”
Just got back from the gym and boy was it tuff, I feel exhausted. Have a busy day today, needs tons of energy! I better make a protein shake to "wake me up" and to keep me full until lunch. Ok, got to go! :) Leaves you with some nice autumn pictures from the other day.
I was at a Kids Birthday Party today :) fun for me :D ;P Anyway I wanted to show you the whole outfit but nobody took my picture since everybody was preoccupied with the children...as one should be at a kids party I guess :) I don't have any children on my own so my outfit wasn't exactly baby friendly, but I felt fabulous in it and that´s what counts right ? :) ;) I had on the pats I was telling you about before and it looks like this but I have it in black. A feminine blouse and this coat. And on the pictures you can see some other details from todays look.
Today I went to the dentist for a clean. Believe it or not, but I like going to the dentist. I have a great doctor I never feel a thing he is doing and love that clean-teeth-feeling afterwards. I also got some teeth whitening gel, I had my teeth whitened about 7 month ago and I need a touch up.
On my way home I found these killer pants but had no cash on me. I don’t believe in credit cards, I’m a cash kind of girl ;) It doesn’t make any sense to me to pay someone to spend MY money. I can also not see delaying payment as a good way of managing money. Credit cards are only convenient when I travel. Anyway I’m heeding back tomorrow to get the pants. So that’s what’s up with me. How about you? :)
