två initialer att bära runt halsen.

härom veckan fick jag äntligen ett paket på posten som jag väntat superlänge på. typ åtta veckor! vi kan väl kika.

billy!

ett vitt litet smyckespaket.

billy!

från billy!

billy!

jaha vad har vi här då.

billy!

tada! finaste tunna långa halsbandet i silver, och med två egna små initialer på tagsen som jag valt själv.

billy!

kan ni gissa? de representerar ju mina bästa platser på jorden, new york och san francisco såklart. (s:et kan få dubbla som stockholm också, i guess).

billy!

så långt och fint, och passar bra ihop med mitt andra silverhalsband jag bär varje dag, det av kalifornien som siri gav mig en gång.

billy!

man kan dra fram och bara ha en tagg hängandes framme om det är en sån dag där ett ställe känns extra mycket i hjärtat.

billy!

eller båda lika mycket. tack billy! älskart.

 

look what i finally got after weeks of waiting. this beautiful custom necklace from billy! it has two tags with the initials N and S that i chose myself. can you guess what they stand for? that’s right — my two most beloved places in the world — new york and san francisco. 

att ha på sig i sommar.

här e ett kollage av några nya sommargrejor som jag ska ha på mig i sommar! lite bas-mörkt och så lite färgklick.

kamouflagebyxor och randig tischa från forever21. (orelaterat: obs att jag skrev typ 70% av detta inlägg på engelska innan jag ba hallå what. ändå sjukt. eller bara dåligt minne)

och gul glad bikini!! för poolfester, soliga parkdagar och en resa som infaller om en månad ungefär, där det kommer vara svinvarmt och gissningsvis bikiniväder. får berätta mer ser men verkligen ultimatpepp. bikinin är från h&m förresten!

och detta som damp ner i brevlådan härom dagen som typ är den somrigaste accessoaren: ett tredagarsband till festivalen outside lands som infaller om två veckor ungefär. festival alltså, känns som jag inte varit på en sedan jag var tonåring (vilket jag typ har, men aldrig en i usa!).

läppstiftet e en gullig present från siri! skimrig ljusrosa i gullig pastellig fruktförpackning.

det var det! så pepp på all sol jag ska lapa framöver.

 

new summer essentials! camo pants and striped tee from forever21, happy yellow bikini from h&m, a three day band to the festival outside lands and a cute lipstick that siri got me.
happy summering!

shoppat i new york.

var ju tvungen att shoppa lite när jag var i new york såklart. blev inga massiva köp, men lite plock iallafall!

new york shopping.

jag gick till bästa bookmarc som är marc jacobs bok- och pappersaffär i west village. väldigt liten men jag älskar den!

new york shopping.

köpte det här fina bokmärket i tunn metall som man liksom hänger över boksidan. somrigt!

new york shopping.

och så detta fina tokyo-anteckningsblock. samlar på mig så himla många tomma block. kanske får ge bort i present.

new york shopping.

på vintagebutiken beacon’s closet i williamsburg hittade jag den här melerade tröjan.

new york shopping.

och dessa fladdriga byxor! en bit ifrån min vanliga stil men varför inte liksom. tycker dom var fina.

new york shopping.

typiskt mig dock när jag shoppar “vintage” och så är det bara topshop och banana republic… nåväl. bra från ett konsumtionsperspektiv iallafall inte köpa nytt-nytt, även om riktigt vintage vore finare.

new york shopping.

och så vita converse! helt nya alltså, från converse store. för det måste man ha på sommaren såklart.

det var allt! lagom ändå, speciellt när man bara reser med handbagage, eller hur?

 

some stuff i bought in new york! i went to the super pretty bookmarc store, marc jacob’s stationery store, and got a cute bookmark in the shape of sunglasses and a tokyo notebook. at beacon’s closet i got a melange shirt and super flowy pants. oh and new white converse from the converse store!

100% human.

hi my loves! first of all — thank you for all your greetings and congratulations on my visa, through blog comments, facebook messages, texts, phone calls, and irl. it means the world! <3333

another thing that has made me happy is the human rights campaign that everlane has right now, coinciding with pride (sf pride is this very weekend). they have for example painted a rainbowy mural here in sf, as you might have seen on my instagram. but everlane, if you don’t already know them, is a clothing company — so they have a collection for this campaign too.

everlane.

yesterday, this brown package showed up at my door.

everlane.

with the 100% human t-shirt + pin!! pretty as hell, but also doing good (for every sold piece, they donate to the human rights campaign. important ok? <3)

now i’m ready for the pride weekend. happy thursday, humans! <3

 

hallå kompisar! TACK för alla grattisrop angående mitt visum! det betyder så himlans mycket.
här e förresten min nya fina 100% human-tröja från fina everlane! passar fint nu till helgen då det är pride här i stan, och dessutom donerar dom till human rights campaign. både snyggt och godhjärtat. det gillar vi.

roses and neons.

let’s look at some clothes! new ones, even.

outfits.

here’s an outfit i wore a week or so ago when me and jens were out walking and looking at that crazy jungle house from the last post. i love my new crop top with roses! it’s from romwe (this online store that has super pretty and cheap stuff, but it took me pretty long to receive my stuff, and also one item was missing FYI).

outfits.

the skirt is from american apparel, and i bought it back in january in new york. american apparel is closing, as you might have noticed? so everything was like 40% + 40% off.

outfits.

also, i have new workout shoes! nike lunar epic low flyknit 2.

outfits.

look at those ultra-fast soles. zoom zoom.

outfits.

in neon-y pink and blue. love em! great upgrade after having worked out in these nike frees for like 2.5 years?!

outfits.

the best kind of investment.

 

lite nytt i klädväg på sistone: min nya crop top med rosor (älskaren!) från romwe som jag bar tillsammans med en mörkblå plisserad kjol från aa (ej superny men ändå). och så splitternya träningsskor! asså finally, efter 2,5 år med samma. bra uppgradering!

brooklyn murals and a manhattan-worthy manicure.

ok. as you know, i spent friday, saturday and sunday in new york. didn’t take as many pics with my dslr as i usually do, but some + phone pics of course! so let me tell you about my friday and saturday to start with.

manhattan / friday.

i flew overnight and landed like 6.30 in the morning. i was DEAD tired but had no time to waste. also had promised to do lunch with my old colleagues, so i headed straight into manhattan.

before meeting up with people, i had time to peek into the oculus, the new mall by world trade center that looks like a big white alien bird, or a whale skeleton or something. it’s very cool however.

manhattan / friday.

lily was my lunch date for the day! her and ahrim, who i also met up with, are two fantastic ladies i used to work with at droga5. we shared a pizza and a fantastic matcha mille-crepe cake from lady m. YUM

manhattan / friday.

after lunch, i met up with robert and we went for ice coffee at this cute place, the smile, in noho. we walked around for a bit but i was DESTROYED after my flight and went to sleep at like 7 pm. what a waste of a friday night in new york — i know — but i needed to crash.

brooklyn / saturday.

on saturday morning i was up and running again after having gotten some sleep. so i strolled through east williamsburg where i was staying and hopped on the subway to manhattan.

to do this! a fantastic manicure at paintbox in nolita. isn’t it pretty?? i’m in love. shellac in warm poppy red and metallic studs.

and then it was time to hop on out east to brooklyn again. greenpoint more specifically! i was meeting up with more friendsies.

brooklyn / saturday.

manya and reagan! we also worked at the ad agency together back in the fall and winter.

brooklyn / saturday.

we walked out by the river where you can see the pretty mural of the girl.

brooklyn / saturday.

and the industrial charming bar by the pier, and the water towers in the background. so new york.

brooklyn / saturday.

catchups with friends and just breathing the new york air. lordy lord. how i’ve missed it.

 

fredag och lördag i new york. mycket kramas och prata ikapp med gamla kompisar — lunchhäng med ahrim och lily, fika och shopping med robert och stros längs east river med manya och reagan. fixade dessutom världens finaste manikyr på paintbox i nolita! erkänn fint!

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.
