Ancient Flair

Good morning, day or evening, depending on time zone. Starting off my day listening to Emre Aydin “Son Defa.”  Strolled through Oslo yesterday, have a super athletic brother who challenges me to become more athletic. Finally figured out a great system to maintain a better habit, a scheduled workout hour several times per week. Walking is better than sitting on a chair is my motto.

Read in the latest issue of InStyle Germany, that wearing clothing pieces having a certain ancient flair is okay. I love ancient buildings with a passion. Serving you both white and “ancient” menswear from the Dolce & Gabbana SS 14 collection this sunny Saturday, time for a late breakfast. What do you think of the collection? dolce-and-gabbana-ss-2014-men-fashion-show-runway-01-zoom dolce-and-gabbana-ss-2014-men-fashion-show-runway-21-zoom dolce-and-gabbana-ss-2014-men-fashion-show-runway-22-zoom dolce-and-gabbana-ss-2014-men-fashion-show-runway-23-zoom dolce-and-gabbana-ss-2014-men-fashion-show-runway-53-zoom Images via: dolcegabbana.com

Friday Thoughts

Hope you all are having a great Friday. Wish to especially say thanks for the support on Google+, I really enjoy each comment and like.

Ever since the Kremlin went into Crimea, have I set aside time daily to learn every aspect of the conflict. I don´t shy away from uncomfortable videos, seen them all, even the viewers discretion is advised ones. Thoughts I have following from a distance, one is that Ukraine has the right to get closer to Europe on their own terms. I am not the biggest European Union supporter, in my personal opinion Ukraine being a part of Europe geographically, means Ukraine is Europe already. A membership in the EU is not necessary, the map is enough to include Ukraine into an European sphere.

Two, throughout the process I now see the government struggles Russian citizens are faced with. I´ve known, but not known really how the government controls everyday life. I have a fondness for Russian culture, I regard the Ukrainian crisis on a political level, whenever I criticize I only criticize the political level. The crisis is a border dispute, Ukraine has every right to protect its borders (in the same way if Russia is threatened). I really hope for the best, both Russia and Ukraine benefits in solving the issues. may 30 2014Cookies I am on VK, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest & Bloglovin

The Versace

Been waiting, for another Angelina Jolie LA “Mr. and Mrs. Smith” movie premiere fashion moment. Telepathically, my wish was granted this week, on the Hollywood premiere of “Maleficent.”

She wore a Versace rubberized silk gown accessorized with Stella McCartney cuffs, the kind of dress I´d love to opt for. A Versace number thinking outside the box.”Maleficent” opens in theaters today.

Blog Tour: Sweet Confections

SC Ebook Final Web LargeSome time ago, Danyelle Ferguson e-mailed me a copy of her book “Sweet Confections” for review purposes (read more in the book blurb section). “Sweet Confections” is a straightforward and easy read, flows naturally. Rachel Marconi, the main character takes us on a romantic journey of twists and turns. Torn between her past and future, she is keeping herself busy in her “Sweet Confections” bakery. The visual of tasty eclairs and other delicious treats, drool moments.

A few recipes were included in the copy I received, I baked the peanut butter chocolate chunk cookies to understand Rachel better. Her everyday life. Enclosed an image below with the result, the desire to bake awakened while reading. Running a bakery seems hectic, Rachel had a great companion in her bakery partner Kristen. “Sweet Confections” is a wonderful summer read on the beach, in the park (don´t forget a basket filled with cookies) or at some cosy cafe. The unpredictable and unpolished nature of the book, makes it a perfect summer companion. Appropriate for teens and adults

Book Blurb

According to Rachel Marconi chocolate heals all wounds. That and throwing darts at pictures of her ex-boyfriend. Burned by yet another bad relationship, Rachel decides to reprioritize her life, putting her dream to compete on a Food Network Challenge on the top of her list and dating at the bottom crossed out in red sharpie.

But what’s a girl to do when a certain sexy guy keeps asking her out? Cue in Graydon Green, a former pro hockey player turned restaurant owner. After a lot of persistent and humorous teasing, he finally convinces Rachel to commit to a date. Just when things begin to warm up, threatening notes directed at Rachel arrive. When her bakery is vandalized, Graydon’s protective streak goes on red alert. Is it her obsessive ex-boyfriend stalking her? Or maybe a challenger trying to sabotage the competition? Either way, Rachel is definitely going to need more chocolate – perhaps drizzled over ice cream and devil’s food cake.

Rosie

Picked up the latest issue of Vogue Germany, before heading to Tjuvholmen to relax. Tjuvholmen is my favorite relax spot in Oslo. There has emerged an opportunity to take an ocean dive into Oslofjorden, tried the ocean last summer and it was such a refreshing experience. Speaking of swimming, I admired an editorial featuring swimming caps in Vogue Germany. Guess swimming caps are in season. How are you today?

Casual Day, Everyday

Kim + Kanye

Going to take the Mac outside in the backyard this evening. Can´t stay inside when the sun says otherwise, I usually provide some cover for my laptop.  Have some catching up to do, had to revise today´s schedule. The feeling you get staring at the computer thinking “there is something I should´ve taken care of,” and the clue is right in front of you 😉 Exactly what happened.

Congrats to Kim Kardashian and Kanye West on getting married, the two of them looked fantastic. Prefer Kim a tad more natural and sporting dark hair, perfect. David Bisbal is in my ears these days. Any Spanish musician you like? article-2640611-1E3EFF1700000578-686_964x728 Image via: dailymail.co.uk
