Kvinnemagasinet FemelleVåre bloggere


Kjenner bloggen henger i en tynn trå. “Do it with passion or don´t do it at all”. Nå henger den en plass i midten. En del av meg har lyst til å gi alt og gjøre bloggen akkurat slik jeg har sett for meg, men jeg ser at det har jeg verken tid eller kapasitet til, og jeg som hater gjøre ting halvveis.. Vel, jeg får være i tenkeboksen litt til. I mellomtiden vil jeg vise dere de nye innkjøpene jeg gjorde i dag.

Skjermbilde 2013-11-23 kl. 19.52.27Buksen er fra merket Dr.Denim og kjøpt på UrbanOutfitters. Den er ikke helt lik den på bilde, men litt høyere i livet. Skoene og kjolen er fra Zara. Sistnevnte er heller ikke helt lik som på bildet, men har en blondekant oppe med brystet og stroppene går i kryss bak på ryggen. Den minner meg litt om en nattkjole, men den er så fin og enkel og kan pyntes både opp og ned. Jeg håper å kunne bruke den på bursdagen min med stort statementsmykke, pelsjakke og høye heler. Viss jeg vil tone den ned litt, kan jeg bruke en strikkegenser over og noen knesokker kombinert med disse skoene.

Om ikke så lenge skal jeg på kino og se “gravity”. Det er ikke en typisk film jeg ville gått og sett på kino, men når roomien min og kompisen hans skulle, så fristet det å bli med. Den har fått 8,5 på Imdb i tillegg, så da må den jo være bra :-) God helg videre til dere snille, faste følgerne mine!

 





Her kommer et innlegg fra i går! Jeg er så heldig som har blitt sponset av CaseApp nok en gang med nytt deksel. Det blir gøy å komme hjem å få tatt det på mobilen, så jeg skal skrive mer om det da.

Og så over til teksten på dekselet “Can´t keep calm, I´m a fashion student” no kidding! Jeg har sagt det før og sier det igjen, den som tror motestudenter lever det gode livet med mye shopping, uteliv og ingen lekser kan komme her å se på meg som går rundt i stilongsen, uten sminke, med floker i håret og bestemor sine hjemmestrikkede sokker på å få bekreftelse på at det ikke er noe FAB life. Shopping blir det jo alltid litt av, men det er mest fordi jeg er nødt til å belønne meg selv i ny og ne, og jeg kan telle på en hånd hvor mange ganger jeg har vært ute på byen.

I morgen skal vi begynne på et nytt prosjekt, jeg skal lage en zine (et lite magasin). Hvor lenge har jeg på det spør du? Svaret er 2 dager. Men det er veldig spennende da, ingen tvil om det. Så jeg skal ikke klage, jeg har bare lyst å skrive et anonymt brev til lærerne om at det er lov å ta ting litt med ro, but not up in here. Jaja, jo mer vi gjør jo mer lærer jeg. That´s the spirit? Jeg ser i vertfall fryktelig frem til å komme hjem på ferie til mine kjære, ligge på sofaen og spise masse sjokolade, vafler og drikke julebrus. Og ikke minst å komme tilbake til verdens beste jobb.

Hi girls. So much stuff going on at school right now. I´m making my own zine (a small magazine) in only two days. Jesus. Well, everyone has to do it so. I know I will learn a lot from it, and since I could see myself work in a magazine I see this as an great opportunity to get some basic knowledge. But I´m really looking forward to get home for Christmas, and hang out with my friends and family – and also to get back to my job that I love so much. I should probably double check my spelling, but I´m in a hurry. Talk to you later xxx

 

Hola chicas! Ane hadde en skoleoppgave der hun skulle intvervjue en person, og da ble det meg! hehe :-) Jeg har også blitt spurt om å gjøre en annet invervju med en journalist student i neste uke. Det er veldig gøy å se at flere synes det jeg driver med er interessant.

 

Karen knew she wanted to study fashion at an early age, and even though she was too young to start her education right away, she explored other options to maintain her interest: “I started working at a local clothing store at the age of 16, which gave me a lot of great experiences she says.

When upper secondary school came to an end, Karen was dreaming of London Collage of fashion (LCF) – “one of the foremast centres of fashion education in the world.” (London Collage of Fashion home page) But fashion school was pricy, so she decided to make sure this was what she wanted: “After I finished school I did fashion management, marketing, business English and entrepreneurship, a short course in NYC.” A taster of what life as a fashion student would be like, and to assure herself LCF was her final goal: “Travelling to NYC was my confirmation, I knew I wanted to study fashion in London!

New York gave Karen the confirmation she needed, but what would she recommend other teens? “I started a blog, which gave me a lot of motivation and helped me to focus on what I was aiming at – my blog is still a motivator today.“

She also tells me that: “LCF has a lot of short courses here in London; closer to home and not for more than a week or so. Perfect if you don’t want to be away for too long.” Karen does the pre-course at LCF, as she was not certain of what degree she wanted. She speaks highly about the school and the pre course: “It is expensive, and a lot of work, but defiantly worth it!” She explains that you make your portfolio doing the pre course, as well as you get a taste of all the different courses the school has to offer: “You get a very general knowledge in terms of the different degrees you can study further.” Karen believes that a degree is a must, no matter the profession. “It is always better to have a degree, as you can always use it for something if not the exact title.”

As the interview comes to an end, I ask if she would recommend others to study abroad, and if so, why? “Studying abroad gives you a great advantage in terms of: a good degree, becoming independent, practice another language. Today we have so many opportunities to study what and where we want – a chance we shouldn’t miss out on. I’m so glad I chose to follow my dream, being a fashion student is just the beginning. I can’t wait to continue my education.”

Nå er jeg klar over at mesteparten av leserne mine er jenter, så om du er slik “jentejente” som meg, er det bare til å vise denne listen til kjæresten eller foreldrene dine. Jeg har tatt utgangspunkt i 1500 kr, så alt koster under det.

I know that most of my readers are girls, so if you´re a “girlygirl” like me, you can hand this in to your parents or boyfriend . Everything underneath costs from about 25 – 150 pounds.

I Cos posen lå denne myke kjolen. Jeg håper å kunne kombinere den med hatt og noe lignende disse skoene. Jeg har cravet på denne hatten en stund, men jeg er så treig når det kommer til nettshopping.

I bought this black dress yeserday. It´s super comfy. I hope to wear it with this hat in the future, and som killer boots.

Jeg tok turen bort til Covent Garden etter å ha sittet på biblioteket noen timer. Jeg var fast bestemt på å handle med meg bursdagsgaven fra mamma og pappa. Men tror dere ikke den var solgt ut? I all frustrasjon dro jeg bort på Westfield for å se om de hadde flere igjen på M.K butikken der, og det hadde di heldigvis. Denne skal jeg gjemme bakerst i skapet så jeg ikke drar den fram før jeg skal, til tross for at fristelsen er stor. Noen som tørr å gjette hva det er? Jeg var også innom Cos å handlet meg noe nytt. Dere skal få se bilder av hva som er inni den posen senere i kveld.

I bought my birthday present from mom and dad, even tough my birthday isn´t until the 21 of December. I couldn´t stand the idea of it being sold out, so I´ll have to hide it in my closet until then. What do you think is inside it? I also bought something new from Cos. I´ll show you that one later tonight. Now I´m off to school!

Da nærmer festsesongen seg med stormskritt, og jeg prøver som alltid å være ute i god tid (til tross for det aldri har gått tidligere). Jeg lagde et likt innlegg i fjor, men da forsvant både mine 3 favoritter, i tillegg som nyttårskjolen min først kom etter nytt år. I fjor hadde jeg faktisk på meg to forskjellige kjoler oppå hverandre for at den skulle se ut som jeg ville, haha for et styr. Men denne gangen har jeg heldigvis muligheten til å kunne gå på Topshop, RiverIsland osv for å prøve selv. Jeg har allerede funnet nyttårskjolen (skal handle den i neste uke), men jeg har enda ikke funnet en til bursdagen min. Jeg synes alle kjolene under er nydelige, så om jeg ikke finner en til i butikken før jeg reiser hjem, blir det nok en av disse.

Ps: Jeg har vært oppe til 2 i natt for å forhåndsskrevet noen innlegg som jeg kan poste i løp av neste uke, slik at det ikke blir reprise av denne :-)

So the party season is right around the corner, and as always I´m trying to start early so the one I want doesn´t get sold out. It happened to me last year, but now I´m lucky enough to live in London so I can go from store to store to try on beautiful dresses. I imagine a lot of you want to buy your new year dress online so you don´t wear the same one from H&M that 3 of your friends have. I´m also looking for a dress to wear to my b.day party, so if I don´t find one in the store, I will probably buy one of these.

I hope you found one that you liked!

Kisses

On Thursday I thought to my self that this week hadn´t been as bad as expected, but then I realized the amount of work I had left, and reminded me that I am and will probably always be a “last minute” person. So I used the whole Friday on doing homework. I´ve always had two rules that I´ve lived by. Rule number one – always say yes to cake, and rule number two – never do homework after 8. I find the last one very difficult now since I´m usually not home until 7? and start cooking and working after that. And I still have to go to school today tough, (who are you and what have you done to Karen?) haha. I think this is the first weekend since we moved here that I haven´t got any specific plans for the weekend, and it feels good!

So over to my new buy. We had class in Oxford street on Thursday, and suddenly they gave us a 3 hour break before our new class, so what did we do? Went shopping and brunching of course. I could see this coming, and I didn´t want to spend any more money so I promised my friend that I would only join her in one store, well one store was enough for me to buy something. I saw these gorgeous shoes on Elin Kling the other day, and then I found these look alikes to only 280 kr. Since they were so cheap, they couldn´t do me any harm, and just look at them. Shoes are one of the things I don´t care about the brand, if they look good and feel good, that´s enough for me. But hey, if you threw a pair of Louboutins after me I wouldn´t cry, haha.

As you know, my parents were visiting this weekend, and we had so much fun. On Saturday we ate breakfast in Notting Hill before we went to Covent Garden. I found a new purse that I want to wish for my birthday, but I couldn´t find it online or at Selfridges so I´m probably visiting the same store next week so they don´t sell it to anyone else, hehe. Later that day my mom and I went to see the musical “We will rock you”. My dad is having a cold, so he couldn´t join us. Me and my mom had seen it one time before, but that was 6 years ago so we couldn´t remember anything, but it was fantastic and we liked every part of it. I recommend it to anyone who wants to see a musical, and the price wasn´t so bad either, we paid 37 pounds each.

On Sunday we met up once more in Notting Hill for breakfast and to walk around the neighbourhood. There was a lot of vintage boutiques, I was very tempted to buy a watch with black snakeskin band, what is it with me and black snakeskin? But I would rather spend more money on one that last longer. Afterwards we went to Westfield (a big mall) and then we had dinner. This beef was just as good as it looks on the picture. I regret that I ever took this picture, because now it makes me feel hungry every time I look at it, haha. The night got spent by walking over Tower bridge and having take away sushi.

I´ve got to do so much stuff yesterday. First I went jogging, then I meet up with my parents to eat breakfast in Holland Park, then we went to see Hard Rock cafe before we took a walk in Hyde Park. It´s the first time I´ve been there, but it reminded me a bit off Central Park. Unfortunately I had to go to school while they were exploring more off London. Luckily it wasn´t too hard saying goodbye since I´m seeing them in a month!

In other words, I didn´t get to do any homework, so by this week I have to do two presentation, write one essays, fill 19 a4 pages with business (some design and media), and another 6 a3 sheets. Oh lord. I guess you won´t bee seeing me much this week. I´m sorry, but I think you realize what´s most important. Anywho, thank you all for being such amazing readers, and visiting everyday even though I don´t blog as often as I should and would. I´m way better on Instagram, so if you want more updates follow “karenamalie”.

On Thursday me and some other friends spent hours looking for a halloween costume. I finally found a catwoman costume that I wanted, but after trying it on I saw that it was a onepiece, and me + drinking, or just in general = a lot of peeing, haha. So that was a lost battle. Very useful information, I know. In other words, I needed to find a new one. I was so tiered and hungry at the same time, so I just grabbed this one with me without trying it on. It didn´t take long until I realized that it was a bit to long for my taste. It´s not that I like everything short, but I suddenly felt like a none beside Ane, haha.

It couldn´t have been a better timing to have two upcoming designers as friends. They were fixing the problem like it was nothing. But unfortunately we got really late, and it was midnight before we knew it. We were all really tiered of walking around London and stressing with the costumes, so we were like fuck it, we´re gonna watch a movie, haha. It´s probably one of the best decisions I´ve made though, considering it takes almost one hour with bus to the nightclubs, and we were having school today. I can wear the costume next year, and the year after that. I was trying to look like Sandy from Grease, if you couldn´t already tell. Now I´m off to meet my parents. Have a good weekend guys!
