HI LOVELIES! Please remind me to get these jeans in every color – I LOVE THEM. The most comfy jeans ever, and probably the first jeans I have ever felt comfortable in. Theyre a little small in size, I bought 27 (i usually wear 25-26 in for example Rag & Bone) and these fit perfectly. I spent most of this day in a meeting, and now I’m just watching Pretty Little Liars in bed under a warm blanket .. A perfect end to this day. ♥

Nytt make up-merke er på vei til Norge!

Nå skal Make Up Revolution endelig lanseres i Norge! Det er et sminkemerke som er blitt veldig anerkjent i England og har blitt en hit for både make up artister og kvinnen i gata. Merket er omtalt i flere motemagasiner og fått gode kritikker.  Jeg skal på lanseringsfesten i neste uke og gleder meg til å teste ut sminken! Du kan enkelt shoppe sminken i nettbutikken deres, http://www.makeuprevolution.no. Jeg skrev jo litt mer om sminke back in the day, ettersom jeg har gått på makeupartist-skolen i Oslo for ganske mange år siden, så det blir gøy å teste sminken på lanseringsfesten til neste uke. Da kommer det en liten post med tips og triks! Ble du nysgjerrig på dette sminkemerket? Da er du heldig, for her kan du vinne et make up-kit fra MUR. Skriver du “JA! Jeg vil teste ut Make Up Revolution» sammen med din epostadresse – i kommentarfeltet, trekker jeg vinner 29. oktober. Lykke til!

I woke up to the sad news that Oscar De La Renta has passed. He sure was the king of evening wear, and has dressed so many great people through the years.

Oscar was born in 1932 in the Dominican Republic and left the island to study art at the The Academy of San Fernando in Madrid when he was 18. During his time in Spain he landed an apprenticeship with Cristóbal Balenciaga. Oscar de la Renta has since said to André Leon Talley: ‘When Balenciaga came to Madrid, I was terrified. I hardly spoke. I just learned by looking and observing. He was like God to me.’ He has also been a couture assistant for Lanvin, and in 1963 he designes haute-couture gowns for Elizabeth Ardens costum-made clothing line. In 1965 his Oscar de la Renta label was launched.

Oscar de la Renta is best known for his striking couture-like ready-to-wear red carpet gowns and eveningwear. In the 1960s he told Palm Beach Daily News: ‘I design clothes for women to wear. I am not interested in shock tactics. I just want to make beautiful clothes.’ And that he did. His work was known as inspiring, romantic and timeless.
