Bang my head against the wall

Outfit credits: Blind Youth tee, UNIF twerk jeans, H&M hoodie, Gina Tricot long knit cardigan, Dr Martens boots, New Look sheer heart socks.

I'm currently torn between wanting to look like I escaped a Sia music video and Helena from Orphan Black. 

I've been drooling over the UNIF twerk jeans since they came out (even though I can't twerk to save my life), and after months and months and months I finally have them. I got them of the Nasty Gal mid-season sale. It's too cold to wear them out most days here, still, but I wear them at home all the time. 

Also love this tee from Blind Youth. I pretty much only wear black vintage tees these days, and it's hard to come by newly fabricated ones that has like a "vintage look", which sucks when you find one with a cool print. This though, has that look. It's sort of off-black and quality fabric that makes it fall nicely so it looks far more worn than it is (UNIF tees are like that too). Also this print is awesome af. 

And also, I'm kinda sorry about the past weeks short of blogging. As I wrote, some shit happened, and while it wasn't anything I couldn't deal with, it left me momentarily unmotivated to engage in anything. But nothing that spending time with mom and dad, and some good music couldn't get me through. And motivation for blogging came right back with the twerk jeans. So it's all good (almost).

Hi







(Selfies from last week.)

So, I just wanted to let you know that I've got some personal stuff going on right now, and as blogging has been on the low this week, it will probably continue to be so for a while longer. I've been feeling bad about neglecting it, so I just wanted to let you know that I just need some time, and that I'll be back soon! 

Lot's of love,

New in



New Look flat caged sandals and embellished block heels. 



These are some things that I got in Dublin that I don't think I'll get around using in an outfit post anytime soon, but that I wanted to show you nonetheless. 

It's too cold and wet to wear open shoes in Sweden at the moment, but I just can't help myself with shoes, you know. The flats are available at the website, but I couldn't find the heels. They were on sale in the store, so I guess they might be sold out online. But you should check their sale still, because there's a lot of great shoes, both heels and flats to great prices (just ordered another pair myself, haha). 

And these necklaces was actually the only jewelry that I got. I do love me some chunky statement silver necklaces. The bigger one on the right is by far my fav. It was love at first sight. The one to the left I got on sale for only 99 cents(€). 

I hope to get around to do outfit posts regularly again soon, but I'm still trying to get back into my everyday routine after the holidays and having been away. I've been doing some redecorating. I got mostly interior-designy things for christmas, and bought some new things myself. I painted a wall and got some plants, a lamp and I'm getting a new carpet any day now. After clothes/shoes/etc, interior design is my fav thing to shop for. I was thinking I could do some posts about it. Should I write more about interior design? Would you like that? I feel so uninspired to wear "creative" outfits during the winter months, so maybe it would be nice to mix it up with something.

Picture Diary / 29 dec - 2 jan / Dublin



As you could read in my previous post I've been in Dublin for the past few days. I was with my younger sister Sara (the blonde one), and our friend Louise (the dark haired one). It was our first time in Ireland. We did a lot of shopping and some sightseeing, and basically just walked around a lot. We celebrated New Year's Eve at Hard Rock Café and were a bit disappointed by the ridiculously small amount of fireworks at midnight (in Sweden it's usually completely crazy). We visited the National Botanical Gardens on January 1st. I love glasshouses so much you have no idea. They remind me of the cage for the Pteranodons in Jurassic Park III. Anyway, we had a good time, and I look forward to showing you some of the things I got in new outfit posts soon! And you can find more pictures from our trip on my picture diary instagram account @magdalenafromspace

2014 recap



I'm kicking off the new year abroad, in Dublin with my sister and a friend. But here's a short recap of my 2014. Above is most of my favorite outfits of the year, and below is the same questions I answered last year, I figured it would be fun.


How have your 2014 been?
Well, it's been part hell to be honest. The final semester of collage is not fun. But I've learned to not dwell on bad memories/experiences after it's over and done, so apart from some struggles I've allowed myself to be happy. And there's been lots of good memories too. 


Did you do something you've never done before?
I graduated with a bachelor from collage. Hope I never have to do that again. 


A particular date you will never forget?
ArtRave on September 30th.


What was your greatest success in 2014?
Graduated collage and reached almost 18k fans on lookbook.


Best buy?
My vintage chelsea boots (the ones I wear in seven of the pictures above), and my vintage fake fur coat maybe as well. 


What did you spend the most money on?
UNIF


Did something make you really happy?
Passing my bachelor's thesis. So much shit went down around that, so I cried in relief when I got the e-mail saying I had passed. 


Which songs will remind you of 2014?
All the songs from Sia's 1000 Forms of Fear


Who did you spend the most time with?
Apart from my family, definitely Malvina, my partner in crime. 


Where did you travel during 2014?
Greece, Germany, Copenhagen, Gothenburg, Stockholm and Ireland.


What did you do on your birthday?
I learned how to crochet and my grandma's and then we went out and had steak and froyo (not at the same time). 


Something that could have made your year better?
Well, if the final term of collage hadn't been shit, it would have been great.


Any advice for yourself for 2015?
Live in the present and don't be afraid.


Any New Year's resolutions?
Only secret ones!

So apparently the first half of my year was all about my bachelor, and the second half was pretty much just been me recovering from that experience. Obviously there's been other things to, but some things are just to personal for me to want to share on the internet. You get it.

Anyway, happy new year and I hope your 2014 was good and that your 2015 will be!

And may all your Christmases be -

Blessed be the day when I for the first time get to properly credit the queen Vivienne Westwood in my outfit post. This was my outfit from Christmas Eve (in Sweden we basically only celebrate on the 24th). Hope you all had a merry one! 

Lots of love,

I did my hair again, per usual. I didn't want bright pink for christmas and for going away over New Year's (we're going to Dublin), so I didn't re-dye it after bleaching my roots. And I had my sister properly shave an undercut on me. I really like it. I like how I can put it up now without millions of hair pins. Funny though, I had more people stare at me like I was some kind of alien yesterday, when I went out like this for the first time, than I ever had when I had pink hair.
