A day @Moods of Norway

Did some shopping today. Not this dress as it didn´t fit properly over the shoulders. But a pair of jeans!

When is the last time I actually bought a pair of jeans?? I have worn a pair a friend gave me for ages now, so to have bought a pair myself is a great feeling.

I have truly fallen in love with the brand Moods of Norway. This is inside the fitting room. The picture on the wall is actually something we could have at our cabin. So truly Norway in every detail.

Even I who is a true International Woman feels that this store is like being home.

Olympic Feature: Maria Sharapova

In these Olympic times I know I´ll talk about the games a lot, so why not give my favorite female tennis athlete Maria Sharapova a special feature.

Of all the sports broadcasted in these London 2012 games, the tennis tournament is the most interesting of them all.

I especially like a good ace or a good serve. 

Maria Sharapova is good that way. She is featured in Russian Harper´s Bazaar. Indeed not only a sports icon, but also a fashion icon.

Tennis Sunday

I hope that you are enjoying this Sunday. You might spend Sunday in the same way – watching the Olympics.

Currently I´m watching tennis. A sport I have grown to like. What I like about the Olympics is the opportunity to get familiarized with unknown sports. Not that I didn´t know about tennis, but other smaller sports that deserves more attention.

I wish you a great & Olympic Fashion Sunday. 

Norway won it´s first bronze medal yesterday. That´s why a little festive dress should be on the Fashion menu today.
