This is the...

dress I should have been wearing tonight.
I bought it over a month ago. They didn't have my size, but I bought one a size smaller, hoping I'd be able to fit it - mission incomplete, not failed, cause 2011 will be the year you'll see this dress on me!!

What I'll be wearing tonight is to be revealed tomorrow...

2010 was a year...

of buying clothes.
Compared to how little money I've had available for buying clothes, I must say that I've bought some good things.
My 2010 most worn

My 2010 fave tee

I'm pretty busy...

with either work or friends/family gatherings at the moment, but on monday I peeked in a few shops before work to see if the phenomenon called SALE would tempt me... it really didn't!
I found a scarf, which was a new thing, so it wasn't on sale, but it was so voluminous and only 100DKK... couldn't let that one go.

I think that the reason I weren't tempted by the sale is that they haven't reduced their dresses yet. Who can blame them? No one in their right mind would do that when people might still be shopping for a New Years Eve outfit... so I'm waiting patiently!

I do find it...

strange to see Spring clothes online already, but none the less H&M have done it.

These two dresses were awfully cute and would look soo nice with a nice tan.

Yesterday really confirmed...

my love for books as the majority of the presents I received were books.
It's not a pasttime of mine I've expressed too much in here, but most people who know me wouldn't be too surprised. What they would have found a lil surprising was the lack of clothes being unwrapped, but this year was all about the books.

The bag is from Urban Outfitters and it was sooo difficult to choose which one to get, cause they have sooo many pretty ones right now. The item from Bodyshop is their new line Rainforest, which is without silicones, colourants and parabens. The chocolate Moose was my mother's win in the almond-present... a Danish tradition... wiki it if you're confused... ok, I'll do it for you..."An almond present (Danish: mandelgave, Norwegian: mandelgåva or mandelgave, Icelandic: möndlugjöf, Swedish: mandelgåva) is a small present traditionally given in some Nordic countries to the person who gets the whole almond put in the rice pudding served for Christmas.

The tradition may originate from the somewhat similar king cake tradition on Epiphany, observed in e.g. France."

I was on a...

lookout for cute rings and found these.

The top ones are Asos and the bottom are Topshop.
The Bunnyears are really fun and the bird-on-stone is so pretty!!

Being creative...

and making food at the same time is a favorite pasttime of mine.
A couple of days ago I made the dough for some cookies and today I shaped, baked and decorated them.

Now, I have to say that they were not half as pretty as the ones I was inspired by but they were pretty ok for a first try ever.
Will be looking for squirt bottles and other pastry making appliances during the upcoming sales.

Today I got...

sick and tired of the cold weather preventing me from wearing skirts and dresses, so I took advantage of not having any plans, and put on a skirt.

shirt Zara the rest H&M

If I had...

a house of my own, this would be in my livingroom!

Today is the...

third sunday of advent, and my present was from...

Love how it's wrapped.
This is the pretty necklace that was inside.
I love the metallic feel it has.
So simple, without being boring.

lørdag den 11. december 2010

The day I...

dressed comfy sporty.

dress H&M, cardi Mango, leggings H&M, socks H&M, scarf H&M

The shoes are another pair from my recent H&M package.
They have an odd shape, and I've been trying to figure out what it reminded me of... skating boots, right?

I have...

the best friends. Look what I got yesterday!!

It's gonna be a good weekend!!

When it comes to...

musical movies I'm no expert. I believe I've only seen Nine and the masterpiece (yeah, I said it) Moulin Rouge. I'm not an expert in the art of burlesque dancing either, but I'm pretty sure a certain miss Dita von Teese would be bored by the movie Burlesque. I wouldn't say I was bored, cause it did have it's moments, but the writing on this movie was pure clichés.

The cast was a good bunch. Cher has won a few awards for her past movies and is an ok actress, Cam G is uhhhhhh, nice!, Stanley Tucci can be my best friend anytime - this role is exactly the same as the one he had in The Devil Wears Prada.
Miss Aguilera did an ok job. I was relieved to see that she was not gonna pull a Mariah Carey in Glitter, but that she did have some acting skills... as long as she doesn't quit her dayjob.
My favorite song in the movie

Overall I'll give it 2 out of 5 stars.

Let me just...

start by saying that this is not what I initially wanted to wear tonight.
You see, I'm going to a premiere on Burlesque with a friend, and seeing that Burlesque is quite the feminine kinda movie I wanted to wear a dress or atleast a skirt, but it is too freaking cold for that!

t-shirt Zara, blazer Zara, necklace H&M, bracelets Cos, pants H&M

The shoes are one of the pairs from the latest H&M package I showed you.

Decorated window displays...

is a favorite of mine when I'm in big cities.
In CPH there's Magasin and Illum, and this year Illum's was pretty fun.
The whole family gathered for Christmas...

'Punk Sausage von Bach'



I went on a one-day trip to Copenhagen with my sister and mom.
We initially went to see Tivoli all lit up in Christmas Lights, but ofcourse we went shopping too. For all my foreign readers, Tivoli is an amusement park... I'm using the word Park very lightly here, cause it is in no way to be compared to American amusement parks!

It was soo cold, and the hobo-esque heating methods came in very useful and appreciated!

Traditional Danish Christmas food...

is indeed very brown, and doesn't look too appealing to somebody unaware of the great taste.
Yesterday we had the kind of dish that makes the whole apartment smell like Christmas (the smell was still there this morning), and it was soo good.

Most people would make caramelized potatoes, but I'm not a fan of those so I just cook the potatoes with the skin on (ofcourse they're thoroughly cleaned first) and that's my version.
The dish is roast pork, red cabbage, potatoes and brown sauce.

Uhh, look...

what was waiting for me when I got home today.
I ordered some from H&M's sale with a friend last week, which arrived today.

I have no idea why the picture wont be horisontal, but it refuses.

The other night...

the Boyfriend and I had dinner at his mom's house with two of his brothers. We ended up going to the cinema to watch Unstoppable, which was your usual 'need for speed'-type of movie - yeah, I know same plot same ending. There was one thing I liked about this one actually, which was that the fatal tragedy the 'heroes' were suppose to prevent wasn't caused by terrorists or bad people with bad intentions, but merely a lazy-ass dude not doing his job right!

I got this Gun-Britt conditioner from Boyfriend's mom, which will be put to the test in my crazeee hair.

torsdag den 2. december 2010

It has been...

quite a trend for the past year to have animal rings, so I found some on different sites.
This Swan Ring is from Topshop at £6.50

This Kissing Birds Ring from Urban Outfitters at £6

The Horse Ring from Urban Outfitters at £10

Then I found this set stone encrusted flying pig from Asos at £8... I can't decide wether this one is a joke or not. Who'd want a flying pig with diamonds and a pink shirt on for a ring?

Most people may know...

Kelly Osbourne as the out of control, screaming teenager she was on her family's show The Osbournes on Mtv a few years back.

Well, forget about her, and let me introduce you to the Kelly Osbourne of 2010

She's shed quite a few pound, quit the drugs and aquired a wardrope I'm pretty jealoux of!
Next step is getting rid of her tattoos.

The Boyfriend had to...

go downtown to buy some pants and stuff and I went with him. I was unleashed in H&M for 5 minutes and came out with this totebag, which apparently is from the Lanvin-thing, which I didn't realize 'til I came home.

I also bought these lip gloss, because one said Red and the other said Gold on their label, which I assumed would be their actual color or that they would atleast have a hint of red or gold in them. I was dissapointed when I found out that the labels indicated the color of the casing... like you couldn't see which color it was?? Very misguiding!
Then I tried them on and they have an overly sweet smell to them. I know the Boyfriend will refuse to kiss me while wearing them!!
I guess they'll be used as part of a christmas decoration...

Ok, I've now had the lip gloss on for a while and my lips are actually starting to itch...!!!
Not recommendable!!

After a long walk...

in the freezing cold, we headed home for a hot cup of chocolate with whipped cream.
I got this cute christmas cup from my sister last year, and I know it'll be overly used this December. Love the candy cane handle!

Today was also the first day of advent.
We've always received a present from our parents on the four sundays prior to Christmas, and eventhough we're far from kids anymore, we still get them - which is to be enjoyed, cause as soon as they get grandchildren we'll soon be forgotten.
Todays present was the traditional 'scratch-a-square-a-day-and-you-might-win-money'-calender. A very loved thing in our family, although we've never won much. The other thing is the substitute for the ever-so-boring chocolate calender we always got as kids. Such an upgrade: marzipan balls covered with chocolate and a sugar shell. Loves!!

I'm a lil sleepy...

from our walk on the beach today.
They're building some kind of promenade in the richer part of the city, and we took a walk out there today to see how far it had got.

With the snow covering most, it wasn't easy to see the progress, but since it's not slated to be done till 2011, I guess there's no need to rush.
So we went up in the newly made park, where I've only driven by, but never walked, before.
It looked very nice, and I'll definitely be stopping by when spring emerges.

in a blanket.

Made a batch of these as I'll be home alone all weekend and working mostly.
On such weekends I prefer to have these in the fridge, ready for a quick warm up and then washed down with mustard. Yeah, you read it right - I looove mustard. Right now I'm going thru a Whiskey mustard a friend gave me a while ago, and it is soo good!
(for the too-literate-for-my-own-good reader I have to mention that I don't actually drink the mustard, I just use the phrase 'wash it down' to imply that I eat a whole lot of mustard with the piggies.)

I think the picture...

says it all...

We finally got snow. After hearing everybody else in our tiny country complain, for quite a few days, about the white blanket of snow covering everything, we've experienced a bit of it today.
Now I surely hope that it will continue all day, then I will gladly go out and shovel the sidewalks and courtyard throughout the day.

There are two...

reasons I'm not buying these pretty shoes from H&M:

1. Saving my money for CPH

2. They have a 12cm/4.7in heels.

I wish I could, but I cant.

torsdag den 25. november 2010

A movie I'm...

looking forward to watch is Love and Other Drugs with Anne Hathaway and Jake Gyllenhaal. Here's Jake talking about it on Letterman.

And the trailer.

It has a pinch of sappiness to it, but other than that it seems fun... and sexy.

I got this mail...

about H&M just updating their New In with party clothes and went to check it out.
This red shirt is real pretty, and is a missed color in my closet.

One of the dresses was this one, which looks chic, except from the middle sewline, but it could be covered up with the following belt.

These bracelets would complement the dress too.

I'm not often into the whole 'having a lil indoor jacket over a dress', but this one would probably look great over the...

classic long dress, which was also found in black, but I thought this color to be more interesting.

Overall some good pieces, but I'm saving money for my CPH trip in December, where I might also be able to try these pieces on.
