Livid Jeans

Recently I did an interview for Norwegian magazine Campus with one of my old school mates who now is a jeans designer. Without any formal training he’s started his own brand from scratch – Livid Jeans. Very impressive! And so interesting to hear the story behind it. After having worked in a jeans store for … Continue reading

Mad Men!

My favourite TV-show is finally back! Season 5 of the brilliant Mad Men is on. Don Draper is starting his new life, after giving us all shock and marrying the clueless secretary at the end of season 4. I won’t spoil the content of the first episode, but generally thought it was good, however a … Continue reading

Clueless candy

I got really inspired by Topshop’s latest make-up-tutorial, which shows you how to do fun, fresh, easy make-up. Golden eyes and candy pink lips – definetely a good look for summer! I might order their “Clueless lipstick”, inspired by the 90s TV-show. My own candy kit – from left: Urban Outfitters nail polish in “Aztec”/ … Continue reading

Nixon at Hong Kong Flower Show

I just had to check out the flower show this weekend. As I recently told you, one of the highlights of ArtWalk was the photos of hilarious outfits at Hong Kong Flower Show. So naturally I was intrigued to see this spectacle for myself. It was sunny and crowded in Victoria Park, with mostly Chinese … Continue reading

Under the White influence

Last night, a Friday night, I was in bed with a fever, drinking Lemsip, writing job applications and generally feeling uninspired. The good old fashion blogs weren’t doing anything for me. No, to get my inspiration back I needed something real. Only some MIND BLOWING MUSIC would do. MIND BLOWING MUSIC, as in The White … Continue reading

Friday suggestion: The Shins

Just giving you a heads up that the new The Shins album, “Port of morrow”, is out! And it’s brilliant. It’s their first album since 2007’s “Wincing the night away” and it’s been too too long. That album really reminds me of student days, reading for exams in Manchester. This one is a good follow … Continue reading

Hanneli for Massimo Dutti

Norwegian beauty Hanneli Mustaparta is one of the world’s leading style bloggers. She writes for Vogue, has done adverts for Rag & Bone, and is on the front row next to Bryanboy and Elin Kling. Recently, she did this video for Massimo Dutti, shot by Hunter & Gatti in Marocco. Very nice! I’m a fan … Continue reading

Spring finds

Or, should I say, summer. Because here in Hong Kong there apparently are no seasons. It’s like straight from winter to summer. (Not that I’m complaining!!) So this week I’ve started rearranging my wardrobe. Away with the coats and big jumpers. Out comes the skirts, the florals, the sneakers. Yey! A few things to get … Continue reading

Clock Opera – “Man made”

UK band Clock Opera is out with a new sweet tune – and a pretty cool video to accompany it. Awkward storyline, but beautiful images and a cool model. Their new album, “Ways to forget”, is out on 23rd of April on Moshi Moshi/Island Records.
