The Enchanted Forest

I came back home from London a week ago. It was an amazing ten days filled with exploring, wandering, shopping, eating, drinking, city life, wildlife – adventure! Now that I am home though I am taking my time to enjoy the beautiful autumn, Sweden is an amazing place to experience this season πŸ™‚

Trollskogen – The Enchanted Forest

Knits goes nicely with the moss

Autumn girl

I love autumn and I love the clothes and the fashion that comes with it πŸ™‚ Today I decided to embrace the new season even if the temps were a little bit above average.

Morning breakfast by the river

Knit on knit on knit… you get the idea πŸ˜‰

New bikini!

Bought a new bikini the other day, because FINALLY I was able to find one that was to my liking in my own town! πŸ˜€ When it comes to swimwear, I just absolutely love that retro feel with high waists and polkadots and whatnot! πŸ˜‰


This one “Gisele” from Monki is absolutely to die for, I got the one to the left. Obviously πŸ˜‰

However I still have a crush on the cherry one that I blogged about a few months ago… I have also found new crushes over at Modcloth – it’s dangerous for my economy to visit that site at all, really… They also seem really good at providing plus sized models (at least for the bathingsuits). Anyhow, here are two of my new crushes:


Lovely green checked bathingsuit!


Or what about this awesome gardenia patterned one? Sigh..

Are you a fan of the retro swimwear or would you rather stick to the more modern style? And if you’re a guy, what do you think of girls skipping the skimpy bikinis in favour of a high waist model? Yay or Nay?

I for one, say YAY! πŸ˜‰
Goodnight β™₯

Shooting In Backlight

Today I had some time to myself and I was really in the mood of fetching my camera and get out in the sunlight to see if I could get some nice pictures. The only problem is that I couldn’t really remember anymore how to shoot with strong backlight from the sun without ending up with bright surroundings and a dark motif. Solution? Google. Oh, how I love you sometimes Google..

I surfed around and checked out different tips and instructions and then I went out to try out my new found knowledge. After a while I decided I had enough pictures and went inside to edit them (if you’re looking for a good online-photoeditor I can recommend iPiccy and FotoFlexer).

And here is the result of today’s little outing πŸ™‚


I love how the sun brings so much life to my garden πŸ˜€


My white skirt is so bright it almost hurts one’s eyes πŸ˜‰


Black & White


I live in a tiny paradise filled with green grass, secret trails and forgetmenots β™₯


Yeah.. I had a bit of fun with this picture πŸ˜› but I think it looks a bit fun and flirty πŸ˜‰


Goodbye! πŸ˜›

So what did you think? And do you have any tips & tricks that you want to share with me?

Me + Music = True

It’s been a weird day weather wise. I woke up with the sun shining in my eyes and then a few hours later it started to rain, then it turned into a light drizzle and now the rain has stopped and the sun his shyly hiding behind some thin clouds. I’m just starting to wonder if summer is ever going to show up? I think the little (huuuge) may-bug on my window pane is thinking the same thing… he’s been sitting in one spot the whole day (probably hiding from the rain).

As my post the other day might’ve indicated I really love music and I’m always on the hunt for new great music. So I thought I’d share with you some music that I’ve recently discovered πŸ™‚ I’m also throwing in some pics of my outfit today, I bought a new shirt last week and I’m in love with it!


Katie Costello – Cassette Tape


John Butler Trio – Groovin’ Slowly


I love this new loosely knitted sweater, perfect for the summer. Also I like how the lipstick sorta makes it all pop πŸ™‚

Do you like to discover new music and if you do, how do you find new music? Did you enjoy these two songs?

Motley Crew

Today was a lot of fun at the daycare and I even drew a portrait of one of the children! I might show it here if I get the parents permission, meanwhile here is a photo from this weekend πŸ˜›


Talented Milton saw this opportunity we did not force him in any way to capture this motley crew πŸ˜‰

 

Never think “I have to fall asleep” – it won’t work πŸ˜‰

Moccasins and Polkadots

Been away this weekend and I’ve had a lot of fun, meeting friends and family that I haven’t seen in a while. I managed to snap some photos of what I wore with my new phone (that I absolutely love!).


Borrowed my cousin Tabita’s new dress one day and went a bit of indian-style with feathers in my hair and moccasins on my feet. πŸ˜‰


And this is what I wore today, a very different style but I am in love with both of the outfits. πŸ˜›

I know I haven’t blogged for weeks but I think I’m in the mood for blogging again now πŸ˜€ Though I won’t have as much time as I did before because I’ve begun working at a daycare recently (which I absolutely love doing!!), so I will blog when I have the time and when I feel like I have something to say or show and yeah.. πŸ™‚

Now I’m heading off to bed since I start early tomorrow morning. Gotta get my sleep if I’m to take care of a bunch of three-year olds! πŸ˜‰

 

I’m baaaack (for now ;))
