Today it was only kinda hot, which was nice as we've had about 28-30 degrees celsius here everyday for the past two weeks. I figured it was a perfect day to wear my new dress I made last week. It's comfortable and just fancy enough to make you feel like you at least made an effort. I paired it with a brown belt at the waist, my mom's old sailor shoes and my nana's old cross-body bag.

Until next time! // Charlotta

Little white dress

I've been really loving smock dresses lately. I only have one and it's black so I don't feel like wearing it on hot summer days. I've been wanting to get or make a white or some other pastel coloured smock dress. So I decided to go fabric shopping yesterday. I found this beautiful white lace and I instantly knew I had to get it. I also got quite a thin white fabric to go under the lace as it's pretty sheer on its own.
I sewed all last night and this morning because I was so exited to get it done and now that it's done I absolutely love it. It's a more complicated project than I've dared to make before since it's made up of two layered fabrics. I think I pulled it off pretty well though.
It's a really versatile dress, I think I can wear it for everyday causal occasions such as meeting friends but also to more formal occasions.
Until next time! // Charlotta

A little wishlist

1. Pink dress from Asos. I saw Zoella wearing this dress and I fell in love with it. It's just so perfect to me. The silhouette, the colour, the details of the hearts, it's all so lovely.

2. Gentle facial exfoliator from Beauté Pacifique. I tried a small sample of this exfoliator not long ago and I really liked it. I have really really (REALLY) sensitive skin and I usually can't use products like this so I was suprised when this product actually felt good and didn't make my skin go bonkers. 

3. Fringed bad from Missguided.  This bag has everything I want in a bad. It's just the right size, it has a detachable, longer strap and it has fringes. I feel that this is the kind of bag that goes with everything and that you could carry with you every day. 

4. Hat from Romwe. A perfect hat to keep your head and face protected from the sun on hot summer days.

5. Shoes from Missguided. I think these shoes are so adorable and just fancy enough to spice up an otherwise casual outfit. They're also available in black, but I like the white ones better. They look really comfy as well.

June favourites

Here comes my first "monthly favourites" entry! I'm a bit late with this but better late than never, right?

1. Light nail polish. I haven't really been into light pastely nail polishes before, but lately I've been loving them. I think they look awesome with a tan. In this picture I've put my current faves; Essie's "Navigate her" and Rimmel London's "Mary Mary quite contrary".

2. Wild rose by Avril Lavigne. I absolutely love this scent! It's fresh, girly and light and just perfect for summer. Try it out, you won't be dissapointed. 

3. Paper walls by John Ajvide Lindqvist. I've been a fan of John Ajvide Lindqvist for quite a long time. He's an amazing swedish horror author with such a unique way of writing. I've read almost all of his books and loved them all. He always come up with such horrifying plots that are unlike anything else I've ever read.   I read his books in swedish because that's my first language and I want to read his books in their original language, but I think his books are awailable in english and other languages as well. (:

4. I love...coconut & cream exfoliating shower smoothie. I've tried the coconut & cream shower gel from the brand "I love cosmetics" before and loved the scent of it. I needed an exfoliator for summer because my skin gets really dry when I'm in the sun and I decided to get this one since I loved the shower gel so much. This is great to use after sunbathing or shaving. It removes all the dead skin cells and makes your skin feel super soft. 

Music favourite: Iwan Rheon. I first discovered this wonderful man wacthing Game of Thrones. He plays the sadistic bastard (hehe, see what I did there?) Ramsay Bolton/Snow. I fell in love with the way he portrayed the character and made him funny and likeable even while cutting of fingers and penises. Then I discovered that he also had a music career and that his music was just to my liking. He has a beautiful voice and it goes so well with the kind of music he makes. I'll paste my favourite song of his, "Changing Times", below, make sure you listen to it! 

Until next time! // Charlotta

I'm thinking about making this "My week in pictures" a weekly thing. I'll publish about six photos from the past week every friday, so you can see what I've been up to. My life really isn't that exiting, so the photos won't be that exiting, but maybe it'll amuse someone. 
1. I wore a cozy outfit 2. I watched Return of The King and bawled my eyes out 3. I made stuff
4. I made cupcakes, they tasted delicious 5. I wacthed Misfits in bed with my cat 6. I did my nails
