Right now I'm sitting on the plane, studying. I've got that french test on friday. I was kind of supposed to have it last week but since I went to Sweden for work, I got to do it on this Friday instead. So, now I'm doing french, math and science, cause I have a science test on Friday as well. Not fun.. Then I may be working on thursday afternoon and friday after the test, from like 12 pm. So we'll see. Oh and by the way, when I'm finished with all of these tests and stuff, hopefully this weekend, I'll get to give you guys an update about the Beckmans show which was AMAZING by the way, and I'll do some outfits of the day that I've been wearing the last couple of days this and last week.
So I'll see you soon then.
Good morning sunshines!!
I'm here in the hotel with Em and we're getting ready for today!! Wiieeee!!!
We're doing a show today for a Swedish designer school called Beckman. I've done their shows in the past as well and it's seriously the funniest thing you can do. No kidding. Their creations are craaazzy, fun, creative, ugly, beautiful, weird all at the same time but in the end the show always ends up being a great success and it's so much fun for us all.
ANYWAYS Em's yelling at me to get her the damn iPad, haha. Just a sec sweatheart! Haha, she hates me. Never mind, I have to give her the iPad before she hits me so I have to go!
I'll try to update during the day,
I'm still in Italy!! Yay!
I talked to my agency and suggested I stayed here for two more days and worked some more instead of going back to the US for two days and then going back again, and they were like "Yeeaaah, great idea"!
So I'm still here. And I love it!
Sorry for bad update, I've just kind of been busy.
Finally I managed to upload the pictures! Well, here's some of the stuff I've bought here in Italy.
And tomorrow I'm flying back to the U.S which kind of sucks. But I get to go to Sweden on friday again! It's kind of unnecessary to fly back home... Maybe I could stay here two more days and then fly directly to Sweden? Cause that would be so awesome.
A white, sheer blouse with a zipper in the back
Detailing all the way around at the bottom
A lace printed top
Of course, showing the lace pattern
Wonderful white, very light (not heavy) blazer
My favorite. Beautiful crochet west with tassels.
That's all you guys! Hope you like it, comment below.
Oh, and would like me to do like "How to style" editions featuring these or any else type of garment?
I can't believe I'm on vacation (well sort of..) and have to study for that stupid french test next week, plus prepare an english presentation for monday. It really sucks. And you know what the worst part is? It's the most beautiful ever today. The best during the entire week. And I'm inside. Maybe I should just not care about school for the moment? No, I can't. But I have to got to the gym as well... And go pick up my yoga mat and DVD that I bought last week.
Oh well. Life's unfair..
Oggi ho lavorato e fatto il shopping!
Get any of that? Well sorry, that's what my life's like everyday with five different languages on my mind all the time. French, Italian, English, Croatian and Swedish (I lived in Sweden for three years when I was 10).
Oh my god, I love italy so much! Today it was soo hot. It felt like 200° in the sun or something.. Anyhoo (?) after I finished the show (catwalk) I went to a casting and when I was done there I went shopping, just like I said in my first, italian sentence. I speak Italian so I'm not having such a hard time down here.
Finally I'm gonna show you my hotel! I'm staying at this wonderful place called "Carlton Hotel Baglioni". It's a five star hotel and it's really amazing. I'm so happy I got to stay here for this trip. So it's in Milano, obviously and since the internet's really not being my friends right now, it takes like a million years to upload one picture, I'm just gonna pick the ones from their site.
Again, the spa
The gym where I work out!
Dining place (?)
Again, this place is so nice, you have no idea. I'm so happy I got a suite! Still can't believe it though, haha. Anyways, gonna go enjoy my last free day here!
So today i will be doing the youtube beauty tag: "This or That". Since I don't do youtube beauty videos, I decided I might as well do it right here. Okay? Let's start.
First section is:
Blush or bronzer? - Blush definitely blush. I think blush gives your face some great color and by only blush and some mascara you can get really far!
Lip gloss or lipstick? - I'm not really a lip gloss girl and I never have been even though I literally have like a million of them. Why do I have that many? Anyways, I love lipstick, especially matt finishes.
Eyeliner or mascara? - Now I'm going through a time where I only do eyeliner on my upper waterline and then a dark brown one on my waterline. I think it strangely enough make's me look more awake and I don't do any mascara cause then I just feel it's too harsh. BUT I absolutely love mascara as well and for summertime, I even prefer it cause it just make's you look so natural. So for now: eyeliner, in the long run: mascara.
Foundation or concealer? - I never ever use foundation (except for when I'm working but then I don't put it on myself...) since I have clear skin and I only use concealer to hide my really bad and dark under eye circles.
Neutral or color eyeshadow? - Neutral. 100 % neutral.
Pressed or loose eyeshadows? - Pressed. Thank God for pressed.
Brushes or sponges? - I love both but I'm still gonna say brushes cause they're easier to work with. But actually I love my fingers the most.
OPI or China Glaze? - I'm gonna go with OPI just because of their bigger brushes.
Long or short? - Somewhere in between, not too long or not too short. Medium, kind of.
Acrylic or natural? - Always natural. I hate acrylics, they look really fake, they hurt and they destroy your nails terribly.
Brights or darks? - Brights. Somehow I just can't pull of darks...
Flower or no flower? - Well I'm not a girly girl, so no flower please.
Perfume or body splash? - This is a really tricky one. I love body splash for like neutral days when I'm only going to the gym or the grocery store, but for everyday and when I work I love using perfume cause it lasts longer, so yeah I'm gonna go with perfume this time.
Lotion or body butter? - I love body butter, even though it's like greasy and nasty. Especially the coconut one. LOVE
Body wash or soap? - Body wash all the way. I can't use soap, it just keeps slipping out of my hands, I can't control it and it's driving me crazy!
Lush or other bath company? - I love lush, but I buy my stuff everywhere.
Jeans or sweat pants? - My favorite garment are jeans. I love them to death and I can where them at home as well as in school, to work or to church (a little nice then though..haha) but for lying around at home I do though prefer sweats.
Long sleeve or short sleeve? - Both.
Dresses or skirts? - Dresses, they're nicer and easier to wear and they are just so easy to style!
Stripes or plaid? - Stripes never go out of style.
Flip flops or sandals? - Uhm, I'm gonna go with flip flops for daily use and sandals for night time.
Scarves or hats? - I wear scarves more but I love hats more...
Studs or dangly earrings? - Studs but I love feather earrings as well.
Necklaces or bracelets? - I wear the same necklace every single day, so I'm gonna go with bracelets since I can change them more.
Heels or flats? - Well since I'm so freaking tall I look ridiculous wearing heels, but I do love flats, and converse/sneakers are my favorite pare of shoes of all time.
Cowboy boots or riding boots? - Riding boots just because they're more classy and lady-ish.
Jacket or hoodie? - I love wearing a hoodie underneath my for example denim jacket.
Forever 21 or Charlotte Russe? - Forever 21 my friend, Forever 21.
Abercrombie or Hollister? - Abercrombie...
Saks 5th or Nordstrom? - Both
Curly or straight? - My hair's naturally curly but I love it when it's straight also. I'm gonna go with curly cause it gives anyone's hair some more volume and texture, and it's not just hanging dead down.
Bun or ponytail? - Uhm.. Bun but I love braiding a high ponytail.
Bobby pins or butterfly clips? - Bobby pins all the way, butterflies just look weird.
Hairspray or gel? - Hairspray. I hate gel.
Long or short? - Definitely 100000000 % LONG.
Light or dark? - Love brown hair.
Side sweep bangs or full bangs? - I don't have bangs, but on others, full bangs cause they're a little more unusual and in my opinion prettier.
Up or down? - Both
Rain or shine? - I absolutely hate rain, so shiiiiiiine.
Summer or winter? - Summer all the way baby!
Fall or spring? - I hate cold so obviously spring!
Chocolate or vanilla? - Vanilla, I easily feel sick after I eat chocolate. It's just.. to much...
East coast or west coast? - I'm a California girl so west coast all the way.
Sorry for such a bad updating the last couple of days, but I've been really busy all day, I've worked from 8 am to 10 pm and I like just got back to the hotel, didn't wash my hair or anything... well never mind I'll do it tomorrow after gym. Oh yeah! Tomorrow and on saturday I'm off work which means I'm going to the gym and (dumdumdum) blogging!! yaaay!.
Oh and I really want to buy a yoga dvd and like a yoga mat so that I can do some yoga every day if I have time (i will try to find some). And then I'm gonna take pictures of what I've been shopping this past week I've been here in lovely Milano, I'll show pictures of the gym I go to (random, I know), my hotel room, favorites of the month of april and also I thought I could do some beauty tags from youtube, but instead i'll do it here on my blog! What do you think? Maybe I'll just do a short one right now? Maybe not, I'm really tired..
Anyways I gotta get my beauty sleep now!
If you follow me on twitter, you know I finished the shoot really early this morning. So after I just went back to my hotel because it's like raining outside so I didn't feel like walking around in the city, shopping and getting all wet. ugh. Anyways, this gives me some time to study for my text next week and also I can take some pictures of the shopping I did yesterday and show it if you'd like! Also, since I have nothing else to do, I'll take some pictures of my hotel room and show you cause it's just so nice!
Well gotta study now!
I'm here in Milano, the weather's great and right now I'm sitting at a cafe, enjoying the sun with a granitá.
I'm so happy to be here. My shooting starts tomorrow so I have the entire day for shopping, sightseeing and eating the great italian food!
Well fellows, gotta go now and do some shopping!!
Here's a picture I took of my granitá. It's basiclly just like crushed ice with some color and it has a little bit of a watermelon taste to it. Oh and then of course the strawberry on the top.
Guess what, guess what, guess what?? I'm landing in 30 minutes! 30 big ones. Oh my gosh, i'm so excited!! I got a bit of a sleep on the plane so I'm like all hyper and such now... Anyways, Milano here I come!!!!!
Okey, wow! I am gonna have such a blast being here! lalalalalala
Here's an answer to a question I got like seriously five seconds ago. Or well maybe it's not so much of a question but anyways:
Question: How long is your flight?
Answer:Well dear, this particular one is a little faster cause it's some kind of special thingy, but it will take about eleven hours for me to fly from Los Angeles to Milano. But since I've already been on the plane for eight hours, there are only three more to go!
So I'm on the plane, listening to my music when I suddenly feel someone taping my shoulder. I turn around and there is Usher smiling at me!
Just kidding. Wish it would be that way though... Kind of cool meeting him.
Anyways, I always get of topic when i'm writing. Oh right, so I have this big stupid test next week in french. I have ti know EVERYTHING we've been learning during my entire school time (is that what you call it? never mind..)! And I'm a sophomore in high school, i've been studying french since sixth grade so counting that first year, it's like five years of knowledge my teacher has to incorporate in one test. Oh boy, it's gonna be a big fat test next week. I better start studying right away.
Here, I thought I would show you this picture I took last night at the LA airport. It was like crowded everywhere. There are always like a million passengers traveling at the same time, every day. Or well at least every time I travel there.
So yeah, since I haven't shown any pictures at all, here's one, not so much fun but still..
Guess where I am right now?
Well... I'm on a plane on my way to Italy! Yaay! I'm going there for a photoshoot this week, can't tell you what unfortunately :(
Also, Usama Bin Ladin (spelling?) is DEAD? I mean what?
It's good in one way, but is it really okey to be happy for someone elses death? Is it right to stand outside the White House, cheering with the American flag?
Tell me what you think about it. It's just such a difficult subject...
This is my first official post on this blog. I've had a lot of blogs before but now I somehow decided to settle down (great choice of word, haha) with this one. I have absolutely no idea what this blog will be about, I guess i'm just gonna write whatever I feel like writing.
