Prep Me Up

Ok, so here I am again. Sick. While my nose is running, my soar throat is avoiding everything that needs me speaking and my body temperature feels like a sauna – the sun is teasing me from my bedroom window. Screw you! On the good side, the sun brings the preppy side of me out style wise. Sometimes preppy is really simple, classy and chic. A bit like the outfit above I would like to wear if I weren’t stuck here in bed.

I know, I already promised those who follows me on Instagram an outfit from weeks back. I also cut my hair short. To be continued in other words.

Okei, da var jeg her igjen da. Syk og atter syk. Mens nesen renner, den såre halsen min prøver å unngå all form for oralaktivitet og kroppstemperaturen min nærmer seg en badstue, så velger selvfølgelig solen å misunne meg gjennom soveromsvinduet. Dumme sol! På den positive siden så bringer solen frem den preppy siden av meg stilmessig. Jeg liker jo stort alt som er preppy når været tillater det. Noen ganger er preppy bare veldig enkelt, klassisk og chic. Litt som på antrekket over, som jeg helst skulle hatt på meg om jeg ikke var sengeliggende.

Forresten, jeg vet jeg allerede har lovet følgerne mine på Instagram et dagens antrekk fra noen uker tilbake. Og jo, jeg har klippet håret mitt kort. Fortsettelse følger alltid, med andre ord.

I Just Came To Say Hello

Hello! Long time no blogging. I’m not going to give you a speech about what I’ve been “busy” doing lately. I’ve simply haven’t had my computer with me at all times, hence lack, uhm…no blogging.

I recently welcomed rainy fall with my new favorite blouse with dog print. And with fall comes new adventures. I’ve started my journalism studies in Oslo now and so far I’m satisfied. Life is more routines, but I like it. Routines mean more time to nourish fashion which I will be sharing with you here of course.

Hello! Lenge siden sist! Dere skal slippe å få en preken om hvor “opptatt” jeg har vært i det siste. Regel rett har jeg bare ikke hatt min egen pc tilgjengelig den siste tiden, dermed lite, eh…ingen blogging i det siste.

Regnet kom først, deretter kom høsten i år. Jeg har forsøkt å ønske høsten velkommen med min nye favorittbluse dekket i hundemønster. Med høsten kommer også nye eventyr. Jeg har da endelig begynt på journalistikkstudier i Oslo og trives så langt. Studielivet gir mer rutiner merkelig nok, og rutiner betyr mer tid til å dyrke moteinteressen som jeg selvsagt vil dele mer med dere her fremover.

Another Day

Wednesday, April 6th, 2011

Photo: Private

My day off from work has been spent catching up with Emilie, writing, picking up my phone new and repaired after the screen broke the other day, reading for my upcoming exam and treating myself with Vogue during the breaks. Boring, but productive days. That’s how we roll nowadays!

Min fridag har blitt brukt på kaffe og litt skravling med Emilie, etterfulgt av skriving på opptaksprøve, hentet den kjære mobilen min etter den ble sendt på akutt reparasjon etter at skjermen falt i grusen og knuste i helgen (fylla har faktisk ikke skylda, helt sant), lest til førstkommende eksamen og skjemmet meg bort med litt Vogue i pausene. Det var jo på halv pris av alle ting! Kjedelige, men produktive dager om dagen, men sånn får det bli en stund fremover nå.

Come Back Kid

I’m finally back in business after being absent on the everyday life and social scene for over a week due to illness. It’s been b-o-o-o-ring, on the contrary it’s much more fun doing daily chores now, for example working out. I’m celebrating my come back with one of my top 3 favorite color combinations: navy, red, denim and gold. The colors go perfectly with my beloved Marc by Marc Jacobs clutch in canvas which I tend to forget now and then.

Etter å ha vært værende grønnsakstilstand på sofaen/sengen i over en uke og ekstremt fraværende fra alt annet enn lett underholdende dramaserier på tv, feberfantasier og joggis er det fint å være tilbake til normalen igjen. Den kjedelige, men ack, deilige hverdagen. Returen til det sosiale samfunnet ble feiret med en av mine topp 3 favoritt farvekombinasjoner: marineblått, rødt, denim og gull. Farvene passer perfekt til min elskede Marc by Marc Jacobs-clutch som jeg har en tendens til å glemme og ikke gi den i nærheten av den oppmerksomheten den fortjener. Skjerpings!

Hang With Me

Wednesday, October 27th, 2010

October has been a quiet month for Natalieology so far. Life has gotten the best of me and I’ve been occupied with everything else than fashion in an inspiring sense. I hope the rest of October and November will bring back that inspiration and lust for fashion, not that fashion never is a part of my everyday, but some days or weeks other less shallow and superficial parts of life catch my attention more. ;)

Until next time, I’m looking forward to get my beloved Canon G11 back from the workshop. We have been apart for too long now. I might cover it with a cute bow like this when we reunite.

I want to go shopping for new underwear. The cold weather makes us cover ourselves up in clothes and the more reason to wear pretty underwear below.

I must curl my hair. Just because the length is right.

Hittil i oktober har vært en stille måned for Natalieology, dessverre. Jeg har gitt fra meg det aller beste jeg har å tilby til andre arenaer i livet og i grunnen vært fornøyd med det. Jeg har prioritert givende relasjoner, jobb og andre ting som har gjort meg lykkelig i det siste fremfor butikkåpninger og pressevisninger. Vi håper de få dagene gjenværende dagene av oktober og november bringer frem større doser inspirasjon og lyst i form av mote, for den er aldri fraværende, enkelte dager eller uker havner bare litt andre ting og saker med mer substans høyere opp i prioriteringslisten.

Inntil videre gleder jeg meg til å få tilbake mitt elskede Canon G11-kamera tilbake fra verkstedet så jeg kan pynte det opp med en mini-slufse. Sløyfemanien fortsetter om jeg får shoppet meg nytt undertøy, for når kulden sniker innpå oss og kleslagene blir tykkere, er det desto viktigere med noe nytt, fint og godt på innsiden. Glem livløst og døll hår i vinter, jeg skal krølle mitt så mye jeg kan bare fordi hårlengden min er perfekt for det akkurat nå.

Patching Up

Thursday, September 30th, 2010

Excuse me for hiding myself. It’s been another long day and luckily another weekend ahead. Casual and comfortable outfits are key when days pass by like this. I love the contrast of short knitted tops combined with high waist trousers. Chic and comfy, just the way I like it at the moment. And yeah, I love the patches on the sweater. Patches are the cutest and most nostalgic details in my book.

Unnskyld meg for at jeg gjemmer bort trynet for i dag. Det har vært nok en lang og energikrevende dag, og en ny helg venter i morgen. Det er der enkle og komfertable antrekk kommer inn i bildet så bevegelsene gjennom dagen flyter som den skal. Jeg elsker kontraster og en kort strikket genser kombinert med bukser med høyt liv er ingen unntak. Chic og behagelig, akkurat sånn jeg foretrekker det just nu. Dessuten er jeg smålig betatt av albuelappene på genseren min. Nostalgi og en dose awwness for min del.

Today Is The Day

Sunday, September 12th, 2010

Today I want to…

..read books

…play around with the camera

..hang around on a bench

..wear dark red lipstick

..inhale the smell of a fresh cigarette

..wear a dove on my head

Photos: weheartit.com

..and be with the person who fills my tummy with butterflies and makes it tickle all over. Heck. I think I just might do all of it! ;)

I dag vil jeg lese bøker, leke rundt med kameraet, henge på en benk, smøre leppene med dyprød leppestift,  kjenne lukten av en nytent røyk, gå rundt med en due på hodet og sist, men ikke minst, tilbringe tid med en som gir meg sommerfugler i magen. Fader heller, tror jeg like gjerne gjør alt jeg!

Shoe News

Sunday, September 5th, 2010

Sorry my absence on the world wide web lately. Spent most of my hours of the day at work, meeting up with people before, under and after work, catching up on all sorts of reading and planning other practical stuff that life often demands of us.  My internet hours have in other words consisted of half an hour or two in bed before sleep or checking e-mail and Facebook on my cellphone. Enough of the “I so have a life outside my blog” stuff. My work place is filled of fall news in the shoe department. Here’s a few of my favorites of the boots. I’ve already bought a pair yesterday. Guess which one?

Beklager fraværet fra det store internettet i det siste. Har tilbrakt mesteparten av tiden min på jobb og andre viktigheter som sosialisering (uten alkohol i bildet, såklart. Det er jo september alt!), har innimellom forsøkt å  tilfredsstille hjernen gjennom diverse lesestoff etter en lang pause fra slike aktiviteter i sommer og ordnet praktiske småting som livet både byr på og krever av oss. Har med andre ord kun hatt tid til å ta igjen internett en halvtime eller to før sengetid eller sjekking av nødvendigheter som mail og Facebook på mobilen. Nok med jeg har et liv utenfor bloggen-prat, det har i det siste ramlet inn mange fine høstnyheter på jobb. Her er noen av favorittene mine. Kjøpte meg et nytt par i går, dere kan jo gjette hvilket?!

The September Issue

Tuesday, August 17th, 2010

Photo: Private

Have you remember to buy the September Issue yet, ya’all?! The best Vogue issue there is of the year. I’m reading my way through the UK version for a start. Can’t remember the last time I just spent my day at the coffee shop enjoying a fresh brewed cup of latte with a hint of mint or cinnamon sirup and reading newspapers and magazines. Today I finally had a day off to do such before I was joined with good company and we continued strolling the streets of Oslo when the sun peaked through the skies talking about everything and nothing. It was nice not running from place to place and being a busy bee all day through for once. And yeah, notice how my Balenciaga Blueberry match the dishes, the blueberry muffin and the Vogue cover. Such a blue thread and so not planned. Promise!

Har dere husket å kjøpe septemberutgaven av Vogue enda?! Den beste utgaven i hele året. Tykk som en bibel og klar for å forberede oss til nok en høstsesong. Først ut er den britiske utgaven, personlige favoritten min av alle Vogue-blader.  Og jammen meg har jeg ikke fått kost meg allerede med store deler av bladet da jeg endelig hadde en dag fri fra alle forpliktelser hvor jeg bare kunne nyte en kopp latte med en dæsj mint sirup og godt overfladisk lesestoff (hej, vi snakker Vogue og VG, jeg vet jeg er en smule klisjé) på Waynes Coffee før jeg ble joinet med godt selskap. Da solen bestemte seg for å vise seg noen få øyeblikk fortsatte vi ferden rundt Frogners gater og snakket om alt som var å snakke om. Rett før vi skulle gå over et fotgjengerfelt på Majorstuen ble vi vitne til en naken og hårete mannestump i det han bøyde seg for å plukke opp noe fra bakken. Yummy! Barbeint var han også. Må bare elske Oslo by og avslappede tirsdager.

G11

I know it’s my excuse every time this blog goes into quiet and boring modus, but this week has been busy busy busy. Actually, I started early this week replying no thanks to social invitations. Enough said! It’s reaching the end of the week soon and for me the adventures are just beginning. I’m attending Hovefestivalen next week and I’m already leaving on Sunday to our rented house. Festival fashion is so inspiring and one of my favorites during the summer, so I’ll definitely try to update you as often as I can and I promise I’ll report back with festival outfits of my own and spotted ones. It’s going to be easy peasy now that I picked up my brand spankin’ new Canon G11 camera today. Thank you, daddy!

See You When I See You

I’m taking the weekend off with a get a way to Oslofjorden with a few friends. Hello cabin and boat life, hi chillaxin’ and drinking and hopefully hey sun! I thought you might miss me during these days, so here’s my face x 4. Enjoy your weekend! ;)

Set Sail To Oslo

Friday, June 4th, 2010

Photo: Private

The sailor jumpsuit is on and it’s officially summer for me! Had my last exam today and I’m leaving Stockholm for Oslo for the summer tonight. It’s funny how you wait for this day to come and then when it arrives it feels…strange. Right now I’m actually hesitant when it comes to leaving Stockholm, but on the other side I’m looking much forward to return to the Oslo life. Pros and cons. Ship’o'hoi! See you in Oslo!

Undisclosed Desires

Friday, May 7th, 2010

Photo: Private

While I know the beach season is arriving too closely, morning work outs are for me more therapy and the best way to start a morning off. Too bad I usually sleep through my three snooze alarms. This morning was an exception and while I was assuming that I had to drag my feet after me to complete the morning run, the feet and legs were dragging me instead. Oh boy, it felt great! While I was running the thoughts were running along in my head and I was reflecting over my coming essay in the last course of this year. Did you guess that all those great ideas were popping through my head like a popcorn in a microwave? Well, guess again. The ideas for the research and writing of the essay weren’t flowing like the beats on my iPod, but every other thought of writing was.

Writing is what I want to do the rest of my life. Write private personal entries about my feelings, thoughts, closures, relations and my come and go existent love life, write about music, fashion, photography, art, culture and everything else that catches my interest, finish writing on my secret book and I even like writing essays for school. Geek? Pretentious? Fine by me! I will save you the headache and pass writing poems though.

When I don’t write I like reading everything, where the inspiration often lies. So when I came home from my run and enjoyed my second cup of coffee, breakfast and the latest issues of Norwegian Elle and SVA Magazine, it was a pleasure opening them both. Probably my favorite magazines so far this month because of the texts, interviews and that tiny depth I often miss in many other fashion magazine. The great editorials and materialistic parts are a bonus, although it often is the opposite because fashion is superficial, but actually not that shallow as we tend to think.

Anyone actually bother to read all this? I guess not. Text doesn’t belong to fashion blogs, que?

Spring Time

Monday, April 26th, 2010

Photo: Private

Lately I’ve been wearing glasses, made new friends, drunk too much cava, been to places I shouldn’t had visit, made a home video at 4 am on the way to the after-party, laughed my ass off, came home with souvenirs from the streets, “walked of shame” to the store on Sunday morning to buy ice cream, started drinking again and fell asleep after a couple of gin and tonics  and missed the summer opening of my favorite Sunday party concept. In other words, it’s officially spring! Choo-choo, I’m back on the fun train!

Passion + Obsession

Sunday, April 4th, 2010

Photo: weheartit.com

Love is passion, obsession, someone you can’t live without. If you don’t start with that, what are you going to end up with? Fall head over heels. I say find someone you can love like crazy and who’ll love you the same way back. And how do you find him? Forget your head and listen to your heart. I’m not hearing any heart. Run the risk, if you get hurt, you’ll come back. Because, the truth is there is no sense living your life without this. To make the journey and not fall deeply in love – well, you haven’t lived a life at all. You have to try. Because if you haven’t tried, you haven’t lived. (William Parrish from Meet Joe Black)

I hope everyone is having a fabulous Easter. Personally, I went to work a few hours yesterday, besides from that I’ve tried enjoying a few days off everything. No school work, less internet, no specific plans that include a time schedule, no lunch/dinner plans, no stress. Just living life on the carefree side and enjoying it with people I adore.

My recent posts were dull already before I went on a Easter break. I know. Sometimes my mind just wanders off in the dust of busy days and I go all absent. I just hate blogging just to blog. Then I could just start blogging about my dinner already, and we know those posts are b to oring. Zero depth, soul or inspiration. If I want food inspiration I watch the tv-show Halv Åtta Hos Mig. I’ll get the bloglovin’ feeling back before I know it, because exactly like love, my interest for fashion (that is what this blog mainly is about) is all about passion, obsession, something I can’t live without.

Piece Of Chaos

Welcome to my clothing chaos! I’m moving my things from my apartment today at the same time I’m trying to pack for two more nights at an empty apartment, plus for the home trip to Oslo on Thursday. Desperately I’m trying to make the numbers sum up in this big chaos. During this moving process I realized I actually have a enough of everything. This is just a part of my wardrobe since there’s actually more at home in Norway and this part doesn’t have any problem filling up my living room at the moment. Like these headbands, I think I’ve used one of them since I moved to Stockholm. Hallo, space occupiers! I don’t think I need to go shopping for years now. At least I’ll try to resist.

Life Is Short

Oslo is treating me very well. It’s almost like I don’t get what I’m doing in Stockholm when I’m home nowadays, but I know when I’m back in Stockholm tomorrow morning I’ll fall in love with the coolest city in Scandinavia all over again.

The internet at home has been absent the last few days, so have my head and mind. I might have left them on the dance floor or in the sambucca shots out on Saturday night. Exam on Wednesday and thousands other things to fix when I get back in Sweden, so I’m enjoying the smell of coffee and cigarettes in the morning as long as I still can. Only coffee for me (for the record) and who thought I’d enjoy the smell of cigarettes? All the things love does to you. My head will be back with you on the blogsphere before you know it!

One Day In My Life

Thursday, March 11th, 2010

Photo: Private

Not much interesting going on here. This has been some what my view from the kitchen all day: Paris fashion literature, the best latte made by Natalie, water to compensate for the big amounts of coffee, chocolate filled buns from Deli De Luca, markers in cool colors, post-its and other student fun items. Hihi. I decided to take the train home to Oslo yesterday to continue reading for my exam next week away from Stockholm, and mostly to get some love and nurturing from my mom and loved ones. Missed them!

Now I have to continue my reading about the picture of Paris before it was established as the fashion capital of the world, then I’m running off for a few hours at work. Yes, I’m so lucky who get to work almost every time I’m back home. No sarcasm intended there. I love my job and my friends here. I heart Oslo!
