Happy Reykjavik Gay Pride 2017

Happy Reykjavik Gay Pride 2017

One of my favorite events of the year in Gay Pride. I love the festivities, color and overall how everyone is so happy to come together and celebrate love and respect for each other. Reykjavik Pride brings thousands of people together and it lasts for little under a week. The parade starts today at 2PM from Hverfisgata by Ingólfsstræti to Hljómskálagarður Park. See you there 🙂    


Interior: A glimpse of Stockholm

Interior: A glimpse of Stockholm

At Sturegatan in Stockholm you will find this amazingly beautiful flat for sale. I am a total sucker for Scandinavian interior, everything seems to be so clean, crisp and bright. I love the use of windows in this flat especially the one that separates the bedroom and the bathroom. I will let the pictures speak for themselves. For more info look here.   Make sure to follow us on Instagram: Reykjavikfashion Hope you are having a great week 🙂


Beauty: Want to get the Summer Glow?

Beauty: Want to get the Summer Glow?

I have been waiting for the summer to start here in Iceland but it seems like this country only has three seasons: winter,spring and fall. We have been lucky in the last week though with a few sunny days but I haven´t had any success in getting that that sun-kissed look. My skin is really pale and takes forever getting any color. I also have a sun allergy so I have to be extra careful in the sun anyway. Now with the Tradesmen’s Weekend (Verslunarmanna helgi) coming up, and many of us are going out camping – we need something to boost our natural glow – don´t you think !?! I had been wanting to try out the Marc Inbane products and last week I was lucky enough to get my hands on the products. I must admit I was a little bit vary because I have tried self tanner before and I almost always end up either looking like an orange or with spots or streaks all over – not a sexy look 🙂 I wanted to tell you my method when using Marc Inbane: I start by using the Black Exfoliate scrub, this is key!!!  The scrub removes all dead skin and is deeply hydrating, which helps your the spray tan last longer and get more even. I recommend this scrub even if you are not planning to do the spray tan. My skin feels more even, smooth and hydrated but it tends to get very dry especially after a bath or shower. Now for the spray tan part: Start by shaking the bottle, some people prefer spraying on to the glove first and then apply to the skin but I prefer spraying onto the skin and even out by using the glove. The glove is also great to…


OPI x Iceland

OPI x Iceland

OPI is launching their new line tomorrow and guess what… this time around they are focusing on Iceland and the colors of Icelandic nature.  The line is sporting some pretty cool shades – my personal favorite is OPI One Heckla Of A Color! (its actually Hekla but I guess they put the c in to help with the pronunciation). Check it out !!!     If you want to want to know more be sure to check out their facebook page!!

Join us - Slutwalk 2017

Join us – Slutwalk 2017

The Slut Walk will be held for the seventh time tomorrow with over a thousand people participating in solidarity for victims of sexual assault.  The slut walk is an international movement where the main goal is to call for an end of rape culture, victim blaming and slut shaming. Some people dress “slutty” for this walk , others wear statement t-shirts. The point is that you should be able to dress however you want – whenever you want!! Nobody wants to be raped, no one is asking for it – however you choose to dress is not an invitation to be assaulted in any way.  I urge for everyone to take part in this important movement support this cause and stand by the victims by showing zero tolerance towards slut shaming and sexual abuse. The Slut Walk starts at 14.00 pm going from Hallgrímskirkja down to Skólavörðustígur towards Austurvöllur. I hope to see you there marching in your sluttiest outfit ( or whatever you fancy wearing ) !! Follow us on Instagram: Reykjavikfashion #Druslugangan #hofumhatt

Marshall and Me

My parents invited me for lunch the other day at The Marshall House. The building at Grandi hosts the art gallery Kling & Bang , The Modern art museum, a restaurant and of course the fantastic workshop and exhibition space with works by Ólafur Elíasson. I took a few photos, I will let the pictures speak for themselves.     I will be doing a post about the roadtrip I took to the Westfjords soon so stay tuned !!

My camping packing list

My camping packing list

I am going on a four day camping trip ending with a country wedding in the Westfjords. I have been looking forward to it all summer and that is partly because I haven’t really had the chance to explore the Westfjords and partly because this will be my first country wedding. I have been thinking about what to pack for the trip all week, unfortunately the Icelandic weather isn’t that predictable so you have to be prepared for any weather. I thought I would share with you a few of the things that I am bringing with me on the trip. Inflatable airbed: Sekkur.is Backpack: Hrím Sunnies: Lindex Hat: Lindex Dress: Geysir Water Bottle: Hrím Poncho: Icewear Rainboots: Geysir I will keep you in the loop on Instagram: Reykjavikfashion so keep an eye out. I will write a post about the trip when we get back next week 🙂 Have a good one lovelies !!


Instagram Crush

Instagram Crush

This weekend was a relaxing one – spent mostly on the sofa with the computer on my lap – browsing the world wide web. I came across an Instagram account: Micha Gianneli. She is so stunning and you can tell that she is really into posting well produced photos. She is one of the biggest influencers in Australia and her Instagram account is visually gorgeous, you can see she puts a lot of thought into the overall look. I will let the pictures speak for themselves 🙂 Remember to follow us on Instagram: reykjavikfashion Happy chappy Monday 🙂


My Seven Day Challenge

My Seven Day Challenge

  I decided to push myself a little bit, I wanted to try and challenge myself by doing new things everyday. So I set myself a seven-day-challenge. Nothing radical but I will definitely take somethings with me and try to create some healthy habits. MONDAY I wanted to start the week out by doing a little exercise, and believe me I am way way out of shape. A friend of mine was up for being my running partner and we decided to run 3 km around the Laugardalur area. She was so patient with my as I had to stop and walk A LOT during our workout.  Doing some kind of an exercise is good for the brain, it stimulates you and gives you energy it also boosts your self-confidence. You don´t have to go running or do anything major, just by taking the steps instead of the elevator each day , can do wonders. TUESDAY Being creative can sometimes be hard and believe me  I know, so Tuesday was all about creating something new. I had been wanting to learn how to use a sewing machine and I decided to go for it. It is OK to start out small, I had a pair of leggings that I wanted to fix, hole in the crouch is not a good look. Next time I will challenge myself to a bigger project. WEDNESDAY Weather you are a creative writer, musician , have acting skills or none of the above, it can be good to challenge yourself a bit in the creative area. Some people like to write down their thoughts , for me , my creative outlet is my piano. I can sometimes forget all about the time when I start playing. When I play I feel like I can let…


That´s what friends are for!

That´s what friends are for!

I had a good friend from Denmark visit me early this summer. We had a blast together, went to Secret Solstice music festival , reminisced and laughed A LOT !! I have been really lucky in life, had the chance to live abroad both in Denmark and the UK for the most part of my teens and early twenties. I met many people, some of them are still my friends today others I keep in my memory bank- we just somehow drifted away.  Friends are like snowflakes – if you pee on them they disappear. TRUE , yes it is true 🙂 A friendship is something that needs nourishment, it is a two way street. I have never had to “brake up” with a friend, some people come into your life when you need them and then they go away just as quickly as they appeared. Friendships can also be poisonous , drag you down. You might not even notice it at times – you might feel bad about yourself and you either draw people towards you who are in the same way or you might drawn to people who also are having a bad moment. I think we all go through bad times and good – thats only normal. The hard bit is to recognize what steps to take when you do. I was having a hard time doing Reykjavik Fashion and Design, I didn’t feel supported and almost felt like it was a waste of time. My danish friend helped me, gave me a good pep talk, a pad on the back when I needed it – but was also the one who said ” Björg, get back on the horse – move forward – I believe in you. ” It gave me energy, strengthened me and gave…
