Christmas is almost here it is crazy – there are only two weeks left of 2017 can you believe it? This year was a crazy one and I am still trying to reflect on everything that went on, what I am thankful for and what I can do better. I will write a post about it soon. I got all the Christmas presents early this year which is defiantly something that I am going to try and do in the future. This December has been relaxing and stress-free and I have just been enjoying spending time with my family and friends and keeping up with Christmas traditions here and there.

December is here already and I haven´t had any time to decorate yet. I am not much for over doing it when it comes to decorating for Christmas and I like things to be clutter free and low key. After waking up super early this morning and drooling over pictures on pinterest during my morning coffee, I think I found my inspiration for Christmas this year. I wanted to share the pictures with you in case you might find if useful for your Christmas decoration. Have a lovely day 🙂
Some people can be quite tricky when it comes to giving them presents. They either seem to buy the thing they need almost instantly or dont have any clue what they want. I often end up giving them something generic and boring. This year I decided to do some detective work and try to find something within a wide price range and would be creative and fun to give. The jacket from 66 north has been on my wishlist since last year – actually I first saw it in red and black but I don´t think they make it in that color anymore. Makeup is always a classy gift and perfect for a friend. I have been using the lip balm from the blue lagoon forever and there is no turning back I also carry the face mist from collagenvorur.is in my bag at all time – a product that I can highly recommend. The Becca primer and foundation is on my wishlist as well as the sunflower clock from Vitra – one can always dream. Manuka Doctor Eye Oil, Available at Deisymakeup. Blue Lagoon Scented Lava, Available at Blue Lagoon. 66 North Tindur Puffered Jacket, Available at 66North. Nikki Williams Key Ring, Available at Mai. Rifle Paper Co. Diary, Available at Petit.is. Frederik Bagger Glasses, Available at Snúran. Vitra Sunflower Clock, Available at penninn. Aurum Earrings, Available at Aurum. Becca Back Light Priming Filter, Available at Hagkaup. Bobbi Brown Satin & Caviar Shadow & Long-Wear gel eyeliner pallette, Available at Hagkaup. Atelo Face Mist, Available at collagenvorur.is. Blue Lagoon Lip Balm, Available at Blue Lagoon. RIVSALT, Available at rvkdesign.is. Hope this list gives you some inspiration on what to give your loved ones. Have a lovely day 🙂
I have been trying to refrain from listening to Christmas songs or decorating my flat too early. I recently joined a choir and for the past weeks we have been singing Christmas songs – preparing for our concert in December. Although I have been able to put of the Christmas spirit until the 1 of December – I now cant help it. I prepared a little wishlist of items that I want for Christmas. This carpet from Mundu Mig would fit beautifully in my kitchen. Crazy cool shoes from Maia. Potential Christmas outfit available at Vila. This Estee Lauder double stick foundation has been on my wishlist for a long time, I might have to treat myself to it as an early Christmas gift from me to me. You can buy it at most drugstores. Being a fan of everything Stina Goye, this coat would be fantastic to wear during the festivities – available at Geysir. Nice lingerie is a must for Christmas, this set is available at Yeoman. Everything in the Skinboss product line is all Organic and absolutely amazing. I have been so lucky to try out the products and I can 100 % recommend it to anyone. It is a great gift for your mom, dad or a friend. Available at most drugstores. Urð is an old Icelandic word meaning earth or ground. I got given this soap as a gift the other day and it smells fantastic ( without it being overwhelming ) and looks pretty cool. The soap is made from sea salt which gently exfoliates the skin and natural oils which leave the skin feeling soft and nourished. Available at URÐ. I hope you are all feeling happy and like some of us, getting into the Christmas mood. Don´t forget to follow us on instagram: reykjavikfashion…
The wishbone chair has been on my wishlist for about five years now. There never seems to be the right time to save up for one – or four 🙂 The chair has an interesting story designed by Hans J. Wegner, it has been in continuous production since 1950 and although now modern technology is able to speed up the process of making a chair, back then it was all done by hand and it took approximately three weeks to produce one single chair. Originally the chair didnt come in any colors but today you can choose from more than 150 unique combinations. I however am pretty old school in that I think I would want to stick to the original version. Here are some photos to inspire you and you might spot a chair in a color that perfectly suits your decor. Have a lovely day lovelies and dont forget to follow us on instagram: @reykjavikfashion
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.

This bag has been on the top of my wish-list for quite some time. Granted its from last year and there are newer bags out there but I love how elegant it is and can be dressed up and down. I would probably wear it with a chain – and like it in the color blue 🙂 . I found some street style pictures and I am just going to let them do all the talking. Do you reckon you can get this bag here in Iceland? Follow us on Instagram: reykjavikfashion Have a lovely day 🙂
I recently got sent the images for Sostrene Grenes fall line. I really like a lot of the things that the brand comes out with but everything I want is usually sold out by the time that I move myself into gear. This time around I am going to try and get there in time. I really love the flower pots so fingers crossed !!! Keep your eyes out for this line its supposed to be in stores from the 7th of September, so we have to wait a little 🙂 Make sure to follow us on Instagram: reykjavikfashion This post is not sponsored!
I sometimes get emails from photographers, writers and other talented people showing me their work. 99 percent of the time I put their contact info in my address book hoping to be able to collaborate with them at some point down the line. Its insane to see how many talented people are out there and I hope all of you guys keep sending me your stuff (email@example.com) you never know what great things can come out of working togheter. One of these talented people is Olga. Olga is photographer who sent me her pictures from a photoshoot she did at Oddsson – I wanted to show you these amazing pictures.

There are so many beautiful old houses in Reykjavik, especially in the downtown area. I live in what they call the “old west-side” of Reykjavik and in that area you can find many of the old town houses. Many of these houses have clearly drawn inspiration from Scandinavian designs and I just recently spotted that my dream house has been put on sale. I put a few pictures here and if you want to get more information have a look here.
