Weekend picks: manageable plants, Anna Nooshin, Nadia Aboulhosn and career advice

Untitled

Pink hair + pink grapefruits.

Sunday is the best and worst day. It’s super relaxing but also stressful as the next week is on it’s verge. Actually I don’t know why I find it stressful as I normally enjoy mondays and all the week energy that comes with it but I wouldn’t mind Sunday being like 30 hours instead of 24…

Anyways, here are some of the things I’ve been inspired by this week.

Interior wisely, I’m all for the afternoon lights bouncing off white walls, manageable plants and industrial details. And the occasional pop of pink of course.

Career Girl Daily is a great site for lazy afternoons, scrolling on your phone in the sofa. The articles are short and easy to digest but with an underlying positive message for women that it’s all about just doing your thing and working hard. While looking the part obviously (quote from someone currently sitting in chub rub-pants with a pink pyjama and newly washed hair in a scrunched up towel on the head, writing about looking like a businesswomen).

Anna Nooshin

I really like the H&M Life blog/magazine. I think it’s a good mix of interviews with interesting people, inspiring photo shoots and nice styling ideas on different trends.

The black dress/knee high boots outfit above and this neon-y shift dress-combo = perfect.

Nadia Aboulhosn is still the nr 1 blog queen I think. She’s personal, smart and so good at styling, I find it loads more inspiring to see clothes on her figure then on regular models as it resembles my own body. And I love the confidence she exuberates.

If you have any other nice tips on what inspired you this week or great sites, tell me all about in in the comment field!

don’t buy sony vaio

.

vaio


– beauty without intelligence is a masterpiece drawed on a napkin

as many of you already know – my computer crashed about a week ago. this feels very sad – especially since it’s only 2 years old. the computer is a vaio-model from sony and i was very excited when i got it. it was beautiful.. and that’s about it. the battery broke 2 months after usage. i hadn’t done anything in particular to it, it just ceased being portable.

i thought it was just bad luck and bought a new battery. then, just a little more than a year later, the screen starts to blink and some day later the computer crashes.

so my point to fellow bloggers and inspiration-hunters is: don’t go for sony. in fact: sony vaio sucks. i am very disppointed. truth is that i’ve realized that vaio is just like so many other design-products: only beautiful. and as we’ve heard before – beauty without intelligence is a masterpiece drawed on a napkin.

är väldigt missnöjd med sony vaio. min bärbara dators batteri gick sönder efter två månader och drygt ett år senare börjar skärmen flimra och slutar fungera helt. vaio är med andra ord precis som så många design-prylar: enbart vacker. bojkotta sony vaio.

vet inte vad jag ska göra nu.. måste fixa en ny dator och vet inte vilket märke jag ska välja eller någonting.. :/
