Hi Tuesday! Did you see my lack of eye make-up and wrinkled face on my stories today? I’m rambling more and more in front of the camera, and think it’s nice to show you a bit more of who I am. I have some issues about my skin from long time back, so it’s not like I’m putting it all out there. But with more acceptance comes more confidence too.
I was not to talk about skin, but embroidery. A while ago Sofia wrote about bag-all and Jennifer, which resulted in me starting to follow Jennifer’s blog. So I brought a couple of tees from home to get my own text on them! Great idea, right? I had many text ideas, and didn’t make up my mind before I was standing in front of the embroidery machine today. First was a pink tee which got love me not in red, I love it. Quite a statement though… And next had to be gold who are you without them on black. Yes, who are you really without them?
Some very deeply wanted dark blue converse for my daughter, and actually a “converse bag” from bag-all for her too. She will be so excited, she’s not used to get things like this on an “every day”. With things like this I mean things that she could live without, like an extra pair of shoes. But yes. I wanted to say yes this time. Well, she won’t know until I get back home 😉
And the only thing I knew I where to buy here was shoes for myself. Maybe sneakers, but I’m not a sneakers person anymore, really, haven’t been in years. I love old worn leather shoes. So I ended up with leather, but I’m still confused about my own choice to get white! It was a type of Dr. Martens I have not seen before (but I’m not very up to date on anything). They look like the original ones, those I walk with almost all winter. But these are one third of the weight and look slightly different, they are so comfortable that I’ll probably get along with them. Maybe even love them, I just have to be able to see myself with white shoes first.
Ok ok ok… I’ve spent too much today. I compensate by eating and drinking very little coffee outside. I make food and coffee in the apartment almost all the time, which is nice for my wallet. That made it possible to buy my first Nygårdsanna shirt, right? I know this will be one of those garments that I will use year after year, so much that people will notice, and my daughter will let me know she’s tired of it. I even got an easter-goodie-bag, and it was so so so cute, and I love the pattern. Will keep it forever.
Blue doesn’t get prettier than this one. Some day I will put it on and show you!
At bag-all I also bought this padded bag for my camera for times when I just want to throw it quick in to a regular bag, and not my rather big camera bag. Very practical and needed, I usually put a scarf around it and it drives me mad!
And this Rupi Kaur book, of course. I think I’ve “read it all” on the internet, but this one is a must have. Not sneak on the internet if you are not thinking to buy it – the writers, musicians, painters, everybody who work with their creativity, deserves to sell to keep up their amazing work.
Gosh, can’t believe I show myself in so little clothes, ha ha, this is as undressed as you will get me! 😉 I was trying on the two embroidery tees and my Nygårdsanna shirt, that’s why. I’m not a singlet person either, I always wear some kind of sleeve. The skin thing again. Which I’ll might talk about later. Now I have about 40 hours to decide which of these three I’ll wear under my blazer when I’ll meet three fabulous and inspiring women Thursday night. I’ll bring my camera (in my new padded mini-bag obvs) and show you later who these people are… Well, let me tell you one of them is Sofia. Can’t wait to meet her again!
