Yoga Mad

November 9, 2012
yogatowel-2

I started my Bikram Yoga boot camp over a month ago, and I have never felt more revitalized, relaxed and toned. I’m always really cold, so I love anything that involves heat. You either hate or love Bikram Yoga – the heat it seriously intense and overwhelming. It’s constantly testing, and changes for every session. Some days I can do a full backward bend without any issues, and other times, it makes me feel sick and dizzy.

One thing I quickly realized I needed to invest in, was a lightweight, long towel with grips. When you sweat so much, you need to keep your balance, and this towel definitely does the trick with it’s double sided anti-slip and high absorbency elements .

Packing

I’m currently up to my neck in boxes in the middle of moving. Worst weekend to move as it’s a heat wave in London and I just want to be lazing about in the park!

I’ll return to the blog next week when I’m done as all my clothes, shoes, bags and accessories are currently boxed up (slighty stressed out). I also wish it looked a bit more organised and pretty as in the picture above!

Hope you’re all having a wonderful weekend and (hopefully) enjoying the sunshine!

NEW YORK FINDS

September 5, 2012
anthropologiecups

When in New York – I always stop by Anthropologie and Dean & Deluca – one is an incredible lifestyle shop and the other a grocery/deli boutique, both of which have lots of pretty things for the kitchen! I picked up these monogrammed mugs from Anthropologie and some striped tea towels from Dean & Deluca Continue Reading

Nike Free Run

September 3, 2012
nikefreerun-3

I picked up these Nike Free Run 5.0 trainers in New York a few weeks ago. You might remember they were on my wish list a while back (well, in lime green). Unfortunately I couldn’t hunt those specific ones down, but I already had something like these ones on my mind. Lime green, maybe not so versatile? I opted for the safer choice; black, white and a touch of pink. Love them!

They’re so comfortable and look great with a more dressed up outfit, such as skinny jeans and a silk skirt – or even with a dress or skirt (seen on so many stylish girls in NYC).

You can customize your own ones here (my colour-way is on there as well).

This Is Your Time

June 27, 2012
AMQ-62

I set up my blog last December and have since then shared with you my many purchases, cravings, outfits and snapshots on-the-go. I am fortunate enough to have gained a lot of global readers in this short space of time, which I am incredibly grateful for.

My question to you today would be – is there anything else you would like to see more of, less of? I will of course continue to share with you my shopping escapades, but this blog isn’t just about shopping; it’s style insight, trends and personal interpretations. So, if you have any specific requests, please let me know in the comments field, and I will try my best to oblige!

Oh, and I really appreciate comments, so if you like something, hate something – let me know in the comments ❤ field! I love sharing with you. I would love it if you could share with me as well.

A Midsummer Wedding

June 20, 2012
wedding

I’m back in Norway with my family, helping preparing for my sister’s big day on the 23rd June. She’s getting married at our summer house by the sea – and the setting and style won’t be far off from the pictures collated above. Whimsical, bohemian and romantic.

For this reason I won’t be online everyday, so please bear with me this week!

Wish List: Urban Outfitters Zig Zag Rug

June 19, 2012
urbanoutfitters

High up on wish list is this zig zag rug from Urban Outfitters (£65). I love mixing graphic prints with softer and more vibrant elements, colourful prints and ‘shabby chic’ furniture.

I definitely swear by ‘contrasting elements’, my fashion motto if you like. This is very much the same when it comes to how I like interior. My flat is a bundle of contrasts; restored furniture, mixed with travel finds, and modern steel – this gorgeous rug will fit straight in. Whether my other half agrees, is a different matter…

KITCHEN ESSENTIALS

planet-organic1

I was recommended Planet Organic by my nutritionist a few weeks ago, so I popped in to the Westbourne Grove branch today to buy a few bits she suggested. I was impressed by the store – it had a a fresh groceries and deli section, a manageable shopping area (I can’t handle too many choices when I food shop), and even a café in the corner. Definitely one of my new favorite food shops! Continue Reading

Boxing Kit

April 2, 2012
Boxing-kit

The part I loved most of my Personal Training sessions was the boxing. The perfect way to release stress and aggravation – both of which comes from city life. Boxing is also a really effective, and fun way to tone up your body.

I am done with my PT sessions for now, but decided to buy this boxing kit from Amazon – Adidas Response Boxing Gloves & Focus Pads – to  continue parts of the training at home (with some help from my boyfriend with the focus pads). Continue Reading

Wist List: Skull Candy

March 20, 2012
skulls

I’m really craving the scull motive at the moment – be it in jewellery, or even interior. How amazing is this pink skull head? I remember seeing a similar one in black at Urban Outfitters a while back, but have yet to come across one in pink. It would look amazing mounted on my white shelves, along with my books and candles. Serious craving. Give me a shout if you know where to find one!

I’ve been dreaming for sun and beach since October (I guess living in Australia and Barcelona for over 4 years has spoilt me). On that note I wouldn’t mind jetting off to St.Barths any time soon, but for now, 10 days in Marbella at Easter will have to do. I CAN’T WAIT. Continue Reading

I spent the weekend in Norway with my family at our summer house by the sea. Just the relaxation I needed, going for long walks, reading books, NO COMPUTERS (well, not as much as usual). However, you know me, even in the most remote places, I manage to buy something from somewhere! Continue Reading
