Tomboy blues


Bad hair days mean that your whole day will turn out pretty bad, for me at least. I did not want to get out of my pyjamas in the morning at all, honestly this outfit is as close as sleepwear as possible. I think pairing this baggy sweater with the loose fitting, yet structured pants gives you this sense of very put together and almost business-y(!) and at the same time does not take away any of the comfort. My oxfords gave me this feeling of a slightly preppy school-boy feel.

It’s a great transitional outfit as spring is coming and it’s rather chilly in the mornings, yet gets unbearably warm in the after noon (at least here in Greece). The sweater is warm enough, and you can always take it off and have a basic piece under it, the pants because they are cropped allow a slight breeze to cool you off.

Outfit: 

Sweater / Zara
Shirt / Bik Bok
Pants / Cos
Shoes / H&M
Necklace / Weekday




My friends are coming in 4 days and I am beyond excited. Cannot wait to take them to all my favourite places and kind of make new memories in this city.
I think I’m coming down with a cold, again, and I cannot believe it. I legitimately never get sick, especially in Oslo, and here I swear I’ve been sick since I got here. It has become very frustrating! Especially the fact that it’s warm outside!
I should go cover myself under some blankets
Have a nice weekend!

Hair mist love


Hair mists, honestly, sound like the most useless thing ever. Yet, they have become my latest obsession.
I currently have two and use them every day. I find that I care about the smell of my hair over even wearing perfume and such. Plus these two products have other interesting results excluding their strong and long lasting smell.

I bought this one last year while I was in Sarajevo, just because L’Occitane was having a sale going on and even though I picked up a few things this hair mist product looked especially appealing.
On the back it says : “Helps to style, softly hold hair in place and leaves it feeling supple and soft. It helps enhance the wake of the Eau de Toilette and to remove unpleasant odors (cigarette smoke, cooking odors)”
Definitely does everything. The smell stays on your hair for days, and you can even smell it in the shower while washing your hair. If you live in a country where people are allowed to smoke inside cafe’s and restaurants this is a life saver.
The smell, is kind of overpowering, definitely on the strong side. It smells like roses, not the toned down-fake-roses, it smells like fresh cut roses. The real smell. I especially love it, it always gives me a sense of power and self confidence when I can smell it on my hair.
Do not expect it to be as strong as hairspray but sometimes you just need something a lot lighter. Also it gives a certain shine and healthy glow to your hair!
I love how it matches my perfume (roses by Chloe) so I feel like I smell like flower garden after rain, when I combine those products together.



The next one I bought just last week, it smells like a mixture of Jasmine and Bergamot, I love both smells, especially jasmine, and I know that bergamot oil is really beneficial. It’s bottle looks more “perfumy” than my roses one, I could definitely use it as a perfume, as the smell is extremely light and flowery.


I especially like spraying it my hair once I get out of the shower because then the smell lasts forever and also makes my hair kinda soft and fluffy. I’d say this one is a more of multi purpose little bottle, I’ve also tried it as a body oil and it works really nicely! It’s also so nice to combine the tow products, then I end up smelling like a garden in early spring, mmm


Probably a must have for the next few months, they’re so great for cheering me up as well!

See you next time!
