Pink Panther

Pink Panther

I found some of my favorite items for you to be inspired by.  All items from shops around Reykjavík. I love the elegant pink colors and both looks are very easy and simple that can either be worn with  black or blue jeans. I somehow always thought that the pink colors didn’t suit my pale Scandinavian skin tone but boy was I wrong, especially with the the darker shade of pink. If you don´t feel like going all pink than you can try to spice up your outfit by adding a splash of color. 1 Lindex 2.195 2 Comma 9.990 3 Gallería Reykjavík 145.000 4 Comma 16.194 5 Lindex 11.995 6 Hagkaup ( Lancome ) 8.689 7 Húrra Reykjavík 18.990 8 Zara 11.995

Dark Religion

Dark Religion

Kyrja has quickly become a basic fixture on the Icelandic fashion scene, gaining recognition for her designs that blur the borders of femininity and androgyny. With her regal and dark vision, designer Sif creates gorgeous clean cut silhouettes that are a must-have in every fashionable closet. The essence of Kyrja feels almost religious which goes perfectly with the name of the brand, which translates the act of chanting. The juxtaposition of Kyrja is that the minimalistic and harsh cut of the clothing belies their soft feel. Designer Sif studied fashion design far from her homeland in the Italian city of Milano. While finishing her studies, Sif took on a full-time internship at Italian fashion house Vivetta. This was an ambitious move, which meant she was working during her final school exams, but it offered a huge boon to her learning experience. After Italy, the young designer shifted her focus towards London. She moved to the UK in late 2011 where she interned for the lingerie company Luolou loves you then later at prominent men’s fashion label Agi & Sam. A few months after her move, the first ideas of Kyrja were born, though the ball really started rolling when she moved into her first proper studio. Kyrja’s first collection was for fall/winter ‘13. Designer Sif doesn’t know the exact moment she first became interested in fashion, but vividly remembers planning trips to Paris with her grandmother at the age of thirteen to stake out the fashion design school she had her young heart set on. She tells us, “around 15 or 16 year old, my mother taught me how to sew a high waisted skirt in the mood of the 1950’s and I knew that there was no turning back. I was hooked on that feeling of being able to…


5 tips for you

5 tips for you

Now that we are a few days into  2017 and everybody is starting their yearly health craze and trying to honor their new year’s resolution,  I thought it would be fitting to share with you my morning routine. This is something that I have done almost every morning (during weekdays ) for the last couple of years. My mornings are the most relaxing,  calm and frankly my  favorite time of the day. Wake up an hour before you have to. Who doesn’t recognize snoozing in the morning and having to rush out with a mascara applied to one eye and your sweater worn backwards? Well I have certainly been there and just by setting my alarm and hour earlier makes the morning so much more relaxed and less stressful. Don’t jump out of bed. Give yourself a few minutes after your alarm goes off, to open your eyes and lay in bed for a few minutes. We don’t always have to rush everything. Just be careful that you don’t fall straight back to sleep. Decide on what to wear the next day, before you go to bed. This makes your mornings a lot easier, believe me. I have almost created a capsule wardrobe  that consists of everything black and then I pop it up with jewelry. Drink a glass of water before your coffee. I struggle a little bit with this myself. I tend to go straight to coffee. This however is a great way to start the day and get your body up and running. Do stretches / Yoga. It doesn’t have to be a full 15 min planking and 2 x 20 jumping jacks. Just stretch your body which ever way comes natural to you, it can be as easy as putting your hands up in the air and…
