Good evening, lovely readers ♥
Hope you’re enjoying your Friday night?? I got some very good news just now. James decided to postpone his trip to L.A, which means he is on his way to me right now!! Weeee :D We’re going out for dinner, and even though it’s barely 30 minutes until he is here, it feels like an eternity! Know the feeling?
The weather has been absolutely rubbish today which would normally be a negative thing, but I am so excited about wearing darker colours again that I actually don’t mind. Not to mention jeans, I haven’t worn jeans (except for in Norway) since May I think…
Anyway, I just wanted to pop by and say hi, seeing as I’m being a good blogger again and all ;D Hope you’re all having a very nice Friday night! xx
Many of my autumnal cravings were rather pricey, so I thought I’d share some of the best bargains from the high street as well :)
Military jacket – HERE // Gold shorts – HERE // Burgundy Jumper – HERE // Jumper (coming soon) – HERE
This autumn it is all about military details, burgundy and black, studs, brocade, knits, leather, baroque, gold, and bold statement accessories.
1 – Military burgundy knitted cardigan – HERE
2 – Studded shorts – HERE

5 – Baroque peplum top – HERE

As for accessories I have developed a love relationship to Etsy. If you’re not familiar with Etsy, it’s a place where individual artists/designers can sell their products. This is treasure hunting on its best!! :D
Anything you like? :)
This summer I have been a really naughty raw-foodist, meaning I haven’t really been eating very clean. When one of James’ friends came to visit I felt really bad about it as he follows a very clean diet that is free of both gluten and dairy and packed with extra nutrients. So, I’m leaping into it again, and I’m starting out with a raw dairy free ice cream :)
The ice cream is done in a giffy and it’s super delicious! All you need is a few pealed chopped and frozen bananas (throw them in the freezer before you go to bed), a spoon of cacao powder and a bit of erythritol to sweeten it up. Toss it all in to the blender and whisk it up to a heavenly chocolate creamy smooth deliciousness. Yummy!! I sprinkled it with a bit of cacao nibs for the fun of it, but you can leave it as it is or sprinkle with nuts or what ever rocks your boat. If you’re not that into chocolate, you can replace the cacao with vanilla, berries, or honey and nuts.
I enjoyed the ice cream together with ipad-Vogue and a nail polish session in some of the new furniture we got from New York last week (you know the furniture I’ve been whining about for months) ;D I am so happy to finally have it all in place!! As I was taking these pictures a little fur ball came and wanted to be included, so we worked on the command “stay”, and he did so well!!! You can see his eyes are set on the treat waiting for him hahaha :D Such a good boy!
He looks like innosence himself in this picture. Just minutes before this photo was taken he did a fur ball bomb jump into the water bowl which he then flipped around and dragged across the floor with the happiest little naughty expression. Puppy power reigns again.
Hope you’re enojoying your Thursday, sweets!! ♥
In March 2011 I had my last dye/bleach treatment, and decided to let my own hair colour grow hoping to create some kind of a natural looking blonde ombre. To my big surprise my hair has turned out to be much lighter than I thought so there’s not as much ombre going on as I was hoping for. I guess this is a good thing in the end as I am delighted to know that I don’t have to bleach my hair after all. Can’t believe I even started…
Anyway, the cut I am sporting at the moment needs to go. It is so boring and I puke of the sight of it in the morning. Not to mention the super dry ends from salt water and sun. I have been traumatized from visits to hair dressers in the past so I am hesitant on going, but I accept the fact that it needs to happen now.. So I’m thinking layers, long and whispy bangs, volume and lots of natural texture. I’m booking my appointment today. #scared
To have pictures to show the hair dresser makes me feel better as there will be less room for misunderstandings, and these are the ones I will be showing (after several intense moisture treatments to trick the hair dresser into thinking he doesn’t have to chop off as much of the ends as he might have done otherwise…..).
Are you planning on getting a new and fresh hair style for this autumn?
The oversized camouflage jacket seems to be popping up everywhere at the moment. I’m not quite sure what I think of it yet as it’s not really what I would normally go for, I do however think it looks amazing on Lucy Williams!
My favourite (which is the same one as Lucy is wearing) can be found HERE.
What do you think, hot or not?
Even though summer lasts a bit longer here in Monaco, I can’t help but crave some autumnal pieces after having spent the whole day browsing new ins at my favourite online stores. I’m thinking black, forest green and burgandy tones with oversized jewellery this season. Throw in some jaqcuard, baroque, leather and gold – and it can’t get much better!

Hope you’re having a lovely weekend ☀
We are having a couple of friends visiting us from London so we’ve spent the last few days with wine, good food and lots of laughter.
Linus has obviously been the center of attention at all times – which he loves!! :D In fact, the other day there were as many as 12 people who stopped to take photos of him while we were having lunch at Bouchon. He is such a little model striking the cutest little poses!
Right now James and our friends are at the beach, while Linus and I are staying in. Linus has an educational game with treats hidden inside to figure out (as well as figuring out where he is allowed to wee and not), while I have some work to do. I’ve missed blogging so much, and I can’t wait to get back in with lots of updates. It’s strange, but I’ve missed you guys so much!! :D
What are you guys up to this lovely Saturday? Lots of love :*
Hi lovely readers,
We got the most beautiful flower delivery on the door yesterday, and it’s amazing what a huge difference it makes. We had two made for the lounge, one for the hallway and three for the bedrooms. The furniture from New York is coming today (it’s downstairs right now!!), so we wanted to have that little extra for when it’s all done. I can’t tell you have excited I am right now!! We’ve been waiting for months, but the longest wait must have been the last few days knowing that it has arrived at the port.
As I was taking these photos, someone thought it was a very fun to try to catch the skirt with his teeth…. #naughty puppy :)
The furniture is being carried out of the lift now, so I should probably go and help unpacking rather than be playing on the computer ;) I will give you an update once it’s all in place.
Have a lovely day, sweets! <3
Linus is very happy about the response he got on his post – paws up! :D
Today Linus and I are spending the day reorganising. We’re trying to make room for all James’ stuff in my dressing room as we’ve decide to use his dressing room for suitcases, coats and jackets, and a space for guests to hang their clothes. I’m half way through and the whole room is just a huge mess of hangers, clothes, boxes and shelves!
I found an ottoman which I just fell instantly in love with for the dressing room (link!) so I measured it up and created a mini wooden table of approximately same size to see how it would fit. I think it will turn out pretty good :) The rest of the furniture we ordered from New York has arrived in Marseille, so hopefully we will have it by tomorrow! So very excited!!!
Reorganising can be quite exhausting…. ;)
Hope you are all having a lovely Wednesday!! <3
My name is Linus and I am a 9 weeks old Norwegian Pomeranian puppy who just moved to Monaco. I was born and raised at the awesome Bella Klein mansion, where the best Pomeranians in Europe come from!
I might be small, but don’t be fooled – I have the courage and a heart of a giant!
You might think that small dogs are plain stupid and yappy, but Pomeranians are in fact one of the smartest breeds so if brought up right we can be pretty spectacular. I already know “sit” and “shake hands”, and I’m slowly starting to get the hang of the whole “stay concept” as well. Just imagine what I can do by the time I’m a grown up. One of my mates at Bella Klein, Toby, knows lots of cool tricks – just check out this video.
I can also run really quickly and I love to play “fetch the toy” with Mummy and Daddy. They say I’m the cutest little boy in the world and they are constantly giving me lots of attention. I guess I’m quite spoiled :) Daddy who pretends to be all smart and sophisticated has become a real softie. Puppy power!! :D
I am allowed anywhere in the house I want to go as long as I try my best not to chew things (or at least try not to be caught chewing things). Most the time though I prefer to hang out in my dog lounge which is comfortable and under the ac and by a tv (although I cant always choose the channel – I prefer animal planet and Daddy keeps watching the news and things with explosions).
So far I have tried cars, planes and a stupid string tied to my harness. I hated the string and made my feelings very clear about it, so hopefully I don’t have to see anymore of it. Puppy power!! :D
Anyway, I just wanted to introduce myself as I’m sure you’ll see quite a lot of me here on Mummys blog in the future.
Lots of fluffy puppy licking, Linus.
