portraits of me!

hi birdies! hope you’re having an awesome sunday. i’m out hiking today (writing this on saturday night but that’s the plan at least). it’s super nice and sunny in the bay area right now.
lately, i’ve gotten a few different types of portraits of me. wanna see?

first one is this fantastic colorful portrait of me by my internet fren deniz! it’s inspired by this photo of me from hawaii. love it!!

also, my friend selena took some pictures of me at a photo event a few weeks ago. here are a few that turned out well:

do you like them? i really do! it was time for some new ones for like facebook, linkedin and the blog. the old ones with yellow background are super pretty, but almost 2 years old. this feels more accurate. also very appropriate in my favorite outfit!

 

porträtt jag fått på sistone! ett superdrömmigt målat av min *internetkompis* deniz. fin va?? och så några porträttbilder av min duktiga vän selena. vad tycker ni?
gla söndag vettja!

cute, glossy, floral, and matte.

beauty & stuff.

i have some new stuff! some gifts, and some are just from me to me.

beauty & stuff.

first, THIS cute koala case for makeup that siri gave me for my birthday! if you didn’t know, the koala is my spirit emoji animal. a perfect gift, since my old marc by marc makeup case started becoming a little too small.

beauty & stuff.

another birthday gift from siri—what’s hiding in dat glossier packaging?

beauty & stuff.

their new super glossy clear lipgloss! saw it on their instagram a while back and totally heart eye emojied over it. thank you siri!

beauty & stuff.

this one was from me to me, just like last year when i bought the warm cotton scent by clean for myself for my birthday. i just ran out—perfect timing exactly a year later for my birthday.

beauty & stuff.

i was debating on buying another warm cotton by clean in order to have a *signature scent*, but decided on ralph lauren love instead. it smells like teenage throwback and floral without being heavy. love!

beauty & stuff.

last but not least—a primer! i never really used primer before, but after getting to try out the photo finish from smashbox in a sample, i had to buy it. love the matte quality of it.

also, for you who wondered, the foundation and brush from this post work totally great. recommend!

 

nytt! lite presenter och lite från mig till mig. från siri fick jag bland annat denna gulliga koalanecessär och läppglans som jag önskat mig från glossier i födelsepresent. så perfekt! tack siri <3
och så tog min förra parfym som jag köpte till mig själv på min förra födelsedag slut, så här e min nya! ralph lauren love som doftar tonår och blommor utan att vara det minsta tung. älskaren.
plus en primer! photo finish från smashbox. har aldrig riktigt använt primer innan men den är bäst känns det ändå som jag kan säga??

unicorn lipstick and diamond higlighter.

hope you’re having a lovely and sunny sunday out there, wherever you are. i have more birthday pics to show you of course, but first i thought i’d show you some new super cute makeup i got!

winky lux.

just look at this cute packaging!

winky lux.

this brand is called winky lux and i had never heard about them until my friend posted a video on instagram stories.

winky lux.

just look! magic clear lipstick with a flower inside. woooow.

winky lux.

it applies clear, and then it reacts with the pH levels of your lips and gives you a slight color depending on that?? very weird, kinda cute, mostly magic.

winky lux.

when ordering it, they also gave me this extra lil gift? diamond powder!

winky lux.

aka highligter. which is something i don’t use that frequetnly. but maybe i should more often?

winky lux.

that’s all from my makeup update this time (but will probably be more in the future since i’ve acquired a few other different things lately. next time bye happy sunday!!

 

kolla fint nytt smink jag har! magiskt läppstift från winky lux som är genomskinligt först men som reagerar och byter färg beroende på läpparnas ph-nivå??? sjukt va. och så en gullig highlighter jag fick med. så fina förpackningar?? gla söndag gullisar!

pastries, portraits, and pasta.

oakland adventures.

let’s take a lil look at what my saturday looked like. i was out adventuring all day long. it started out in my room like this.

oakland adventures.

i dressed up in my favorite outfit for the time being: adidas crop top, weekday skirt, and nike air max ultra si.

oakland adventures.

and my new off-white bag for the first time ever! was very excited.

oakland adventures.

and then i hopped over to the other side of the bay from san francisco to oakland!

oakland adventures.

to this event, with the brilliant name pastries and portraits. it was basically what it sounds like—bottomless pastries and a photo session (will share the pics of me later when i get them!).

oakland adventures.

it was my friend selena who had arranged it. here she is with michella who was helping out too. v kickass ladies.

oakland adventures.

after that, i texted my friend tare who was like “oh you’re in oakland?? stay there and i’ll pick you up!” and i was like OK SURE??, and without knowing what the plan was, he picked me up and drove off.

oakland adventures.

we went to grand lake kitchen for food (this right here was a baked pasta) and michelada. YUM.

oakland adventures.

after dinner, we walked around oakland and said hi to a few of his friends. so nice catching up with this handsome one, hadn’t seen him in a while!

oakland adventures.

the evening light was so nice over there. (also, you can really see my eye color here!!)

oakland adventures.

and that’s that from my saturday in oakland! a great day *praying hands emoji* thank u life!!

 

ta en titt på min lördag vettja! jag hade min favvooutfit för tillfället som består av adidasmagtröja, weekendkjol, nike airmax thea ultra si och min nya juvel, väskan från off-white. jag stack över bay bridge till oakland och minglade på min vän selenas foto- och bakelseevent. så bra koncept! ska visa några porträttbilder hon tog på mig sen när jag får dem. sen mötte jag upp med min snygga kompis tare och drack öl, käkade middag och prommade runt i oakland och hängde. så bra dag.

the most precious gift from me to me.

as you maybe know, my birthday is saturday next week, and besides celebrating it a LOT (several days in a row), i also make sure to treat myself to some pretty birthday gifts. this year, i think i gave myself the prettiest gift ever. let’s look.

off-white c/o virgil abloh shoulder bag.

so there was a box from net-a-porter that arrived at my door. wonder what’s inside…

off-white c/o virgil abloh shoulder bag.

:o

off-white c/o virgil abloh shoulder bag.

YES. it’s true!!!! the binder clip leather shoulder bag from off-white!! (it’s like i’m still surprised although i gave it to myself.)

off-white c/o virgil abloh shoulder bag.

it has the characteristic diagonal stripes and that yellow off-white strap.

off-white c/o virgil abloh shoulder bag.

and the binder clip of course.

off-white c/o virgil abloh shoulder bag.

super industrial details. imagine this with crop top and short skirt, leather jacket, puma creepers. SO very excited to hit the streets with this new baby this spring.

off-white c/o virgil abloh shoulder bag.

happy early birthday, vicky! -thank you, vicky!!! you shouldn’t have. <333333

 

jag har köpt världens kanske finaste förskotts-födelsedagspresent till mig själv — binder clip-väskan från off-white herregud kan typ ej andas den e så fin!!! :'(

grattis vicky tack vicky <333333

bunnies, city views, and early birthday gifts.

hangout with patty.

my saturday started at cafe st jorge, a little portugese place in the mission that i’ve been wanting to try out for a bit. so i texted patty to meet me there for lunch.

hangout with patty.

they serve cute breakfast sliders with egg and portugese cheese.

hangout with patty.

after lunch, we saw two real bunnies in someone’s garden! just like that, without surveillance. they were so soft and fantastic!!!! is this because easter or what??

hangout with patty.

then we went up to clarendon heights which is in the twin peaks area. patty lives there now! look at this viewwww. massive buena vista park in the middle and downtown behind.

hangout with patty.

we took some pictures and then headed back downtown to walk around 10000 stores.

early birthday gifts.

i got two early birthday gifts! one from sephora and one from myself.

early birthday gifts.

the one from me was this lipstick from milk makeup. i usually don’t wear color on my lips because i don’t feel super comfortable in it, but this one (in the hue c.re.a.m. nude) was perfect with not too strong of a color.

early birthday gifts.

the gift from sephora was this little duo.

early birthday gifts.

a combo blush in a warm reddish pink.

early birthday gifts.

and a lip tint (you know the kind of lip color that applies like a lipgloss but that dries immediately) in a similar warm old rose color. thank you sephora!

 

i lördags hängde jag med patty. vi var på cafe st jorge som är ett portugisiskt brunchställe jag velat testa länge. sen såg vi två mjuka kaniner aka påskarar som vi klappade länge länge. en vända upp till fina twin peaks där hon bor och så tillbaka downtown för att kryssa runt massa butiker. från sephora fick jag med mig två tidiga födelsedagspresenter, ett läppstift från mig själv från milk och så en rouge samt läpptint från sephora. tack tack!

new makeup.

first one is this little friend from chanel.

new makeup.

once, i got a few drops of this one in a small tester pack from a magazine, and it was actually perfect. how often does that happen? like never, right?

new makeup.

so i decided t go for it. it’s called le teint ultra tenue in color 30, beige.

new makeup.

while i was at it, i thought i could treat myself with a nice foundation brush too, right? i decided on this one—the lock-it brush from kat von d beauty.

new makeup.

in her characteristic gothic style, of course. long and pointy and black and shiny.

new makeup.

with her monogram at the top.

the swedish organization svenska digitala nomader made an interview with me. check it out here! it’s in swedish, but you can probably google translate it if you’re interested in knowing a little bit about me, my job, and some of the places i’ve lived and worked in.

i got a comment that i should review the glossier boy brow pomade that i wrote about in this post. i don’t have much to say than praising it! it makes my brows look a little denser and more groomed, without looking over-done. ↑ here’s a little boomerang how it looks on (cause i naturally have kind of weak eyebrows).

remember my super lovely friends jens and axel (to the left in this picture)? they’re both designers and have recently come up with this ruler, especially designed for designers and creators who work both in the physical and digital world. their kickstarter is still running for a few more days, but they’ve already reached over 500% funding! so proud. check out the project here.

the fantastic stina (who visited sf and hung out with me last year is in this year’s let’s dance (sweden’s version of dancing with the stars)!!! and she’s KILLING it. if you’re in sweden, you probably know it’s every friday on tv4. if you’re outside of sweden, maybe you can somehow try to access it on tv4play (not giving any advice to break the law here though). otherwise, just check out and follow her majestic instagram account.

Superskaparna-1920x1277

and another one of my friends who’s in a swedish tv show right now is anna maría (to the right in the yellow shirt)! she’s one of the three finalists in the DIY competition show superskaparna. much proud!! watch it on sjuan every tuesday or on tv4play. go anna maría!

 

mao

lite gott och blandat om mig och några av mina duktiga kompisar! en intervju med mig, jag i glossiers ögonbrynspomada, jens och axels linjal-kickstarter, stina i let’s dance och anna maría i superskaparna! asså så många bra folk i samma inlägg va.

glad nike air max day! japp, det är en riktig dag och den infaller idag. jag firar på detta vis såklart, med nya air max thea ultra si i fina havrefärgen, med de finaste repskosnörena och tjocka blanka sömmar. e så pepp på att ta ut dem på torra sf-gator denna vår.
