Happy Monday they say..

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

And yes, it sort of is, but on the other hand today is that kind of Monday everybody always complains about. To be honest I never have a “Monday feeling”, but today my body screams Monday. I feel exhausted and my plan right now is to give Olivia a diaper change and then head on over to the store to buy some therapy food. Have a good day!

Maybe I should’ve gotten a pedicure

Jeans from h&m // Sunglasses HERE // Shirt from h&m // Bag from Alexander Wang // Shoes from h&m

The other day I met up with my friend Maren for lunch wearing this. She helped me take these photos and immediately when she started zooming in on my feet I thought “oh crap, now they’re going to see my un pedicured toes.” I mean, it’s not so bad, as you can tell by the fact that I posted these photos, but I must admit feet aren’t the prettiest. Though, shoes ARE, hence again the photos. I’m in love.

In just a few Olivia and I are about to watch Frozen. For her, but mostly my, pleasure 😀

I could have sworn I hit publish on this

Dress and skirt from h&m // Crop top from Mango // Sunglasses from Quay // Shoes from converse

6 hours ago, but obviously I didn’t.

This is by far my favorite dress this summer. I love the print and the fact that it opens all the way down and can be used in different ways makes it perfect. Paired with the most popular skirt this season, this is an outfit where you can’t go wrong.

Have a wonderful Saturday now.

How to: braided updo

A DIFFERENT TAKE ON THE TOP BUN

Start off by combing out your hair really well. Like I’ve said before, braiding with tangles in your hair is just a mess.
Lean forward with all of your hair pointed to the ground.
Now we’re going to start braiding. Begin from the neck and take three strands of hair. Then you’re really just making a regular braid from your neck and to the top of your head, but the tricky part if you haven’t done it before can be the fact that you’re leaning forwards and up side down things can sometimes be a little confusing. Just try and concentrate and it should all work out well. If not then practice makes perfect. Remember to work in hair all the way up to the top so that the braid will “stick” to the head.
Next, (you can also stand up now) take a rubber band and make a ponytail. From here you braid that ponytail all the way down and then you just twirl it around its center to make a bun. Fasten it with as many bobby pins as you need, and you’re ready to go.
