“Zoë, it`s to early to start thinking about swimsuits”.
“Oh, what`s that? I can`t hear you over the sound of all these amazingly adorable swimsuits!”
(As always click the image to be directed to the site).
As you might have noticed, a few weeks ago I posted a few selfies with a choker.
So as I am now totally feeling this whole vibe, I`ve realized that I need more of them! So I have put together a wish list, but it`s so hard to chose! Please feel free to tell me your favorites, and also if you hate any of them of course.

As you know, a few days back I ordered some new make-up from my beloved “makeupmekka”. I was especially excited for the liquid lipstick (or super matte lipcream as they call it). And alas I have had the chance to try it out. Here is how it looks!
PS: The lighting here is terrible, so it was really hard to get pictures without a major glare and for some reason the colors are different from my phone to the computer, so don`t hate.
First, one of the whole look.
The color is darker and more purple irl, but as you can see the lipstick is super matte and not to chappy at all. I for one am 100 % here for it and will probably order more variations. This one was the “Hangover” color.
What do you think?
So for me personally, I wan’t 2017 to be about changes and personal growth. And I felt like a just needed a symbolic change for starters. And while I would say this is at all a big change, I am quite happy with it. Basically, I got my eyebrows done and dyed my hair black (it used to be brown), and I’m just so happy with it because a) I love the look and b) I just love the thought of change being possible and accesible. Obviously I am aiming a lot higher than just small stuff like this, but I do very much appreciate that fesh, clean-slate feeling!
Yes, I took a selfie (actually more like 15) in the library. No shame.

For real guys, I cannot be the only one that loves this look!

Even the worlds most adorable person, Zooey Deschanel, doesn`t look like a child with them at all.

So try out this style!
Heads up though, as with everything, pigtails work for some and not for others. Cute pigtails are great and cool and all that. But for some people in doesn`t work, some may even look to young.
Tip: Either go very low and causual with a frizzy look (if your hair is moderately long at least) or staighten your hair and go with a very high, tight look. Don`t make it too natural (I know, I sound horrible now), because that does actually make the wrong accosiations.
As I am sitting in my mothers office completely taken over by caffeine and the excitement of only having four more days of school left before christmas break, I just really want to share that feeling with you guys! So here goes.
Advice of the day:
Watch this amazing Nat Chat that I was telling you about a few posts back. Christmas is a time were everybody should just be happy and relaxed and filled with holiday spirit and bliss. Yet, more often than not, we stress even MORE than usually. We stress about getting our christmas shopping done (I have not started yet, as usual around this time a year), about the infamous christmas cleaning, whether or not it will snow (like Natalia says in the video, don`t stress about the things you can`t control. We can not control this), what we are going to wear on christmas eve, what are kids are going to wear (do any of my readers have kids?). As the most stressed person in the world, there is no way I can tell you to stress down without being a hypocrite, so I`ll let NT do that for me. All I can say, is that this video has actually been of great help for me. And if there is hope for me, there is definitely hope for you.
Motivation of the day:
Christmas break is as I mentioned, right around the corner! That means that in a few days (are maybe even already depending on your schools or workplace system!) you will officially have permission to get up everyday at 1 pm in, lounge around in your quite checkered pyjamas and robe, and just lay on the couch for hours on end watching nostalgic christmas specials from Disney eating chocolate and marzipan. And in a few more days, you can stuff your face with the people you love AND get presents! How great is that? And even if you don`t celebrate christmas, you will most likely still have the holiday, which is great in it self! And let`s not forget that a new year is approaching. Finally we will all have (somewhat) clean slates and new possibilities waiting for us 🙂
Fashion tip of the day:
If you`re going to be wearing PJ`s for a week (many of us are, don`t be ashamed) at least wear some cute, instagram worthy PJ`s. Also, pair them with super comfertable slippers. It`s really the only outfit that can get away with it anyways. Every christmas my grandmother gets my a pair of high slippers (kind of boot-like), and they`re so comfy! Also, they have small gripper thingies in rubber on the soles so you won`t sleep because my grandmother is highly concerned with the level of clumsyness that I inhabit. Back to the point. Wear cute pyjamas. And don`t be afraid to wear some accesories with it, so your make-up and style your hair. Ao what if it seems “fake”, it looks and feels awesome! Personly, I am not the type to wear pyjamas for longer than two hours after I get up, but if I do, I really love the dolled up pyjamas look. Is that a thing? I don`t even know. Well it is now. #dolleduppjs2016
Lately, I have been looking at these amazing boots from Jeffrey Campbell. The only problem is that all of them are so incredibly cool that I do not know which pair to go for. So I must once again ask for your help. Which of these should I go for?
The first once are these grey, that seem perfect for work and everyday, especially with leggings and black pants. You can buy them here.
These beige ones remind me of one of my Candies which I love! And they seem very office-y. I don`t know, correct me if I am wrong. You can buy them here.
I love black. We all do. So these speak for them selves. You can buy them here.
6th class me would throw herself at these, and present day me is struggeling not to as well. Spikes are so cool! You can buy them here.
Like I said, I LOVE glitter, and it being in right now is the best that has happened! Unfortunately though, they do not have these in my size right now, but you can still vote on if I should wait for them. You can buy them here.
Okay, those are the options. Please vote! I seriously appreciate your help!
