There is something about turqoise sea water that makes me feel calm and complete. One on my all time favourite music videos is Sade – No Ordinary Love. No other video has left such an impact on me ever since with originality. When I saw it as a child back then, I fell in love with it. With its melancholy, with the tragedy of how a mermaid, unhappy in love, feels powerless, with the beautiful underwater world, with an underwater kiss and with genius simplicity how it was created – with a strong fan blowing the silk light plants and her hair and the rainbow-shiny bubbles. And that wedding outfit with feather top and pants and a see-through skirt on top (very stylish!). I liked how she spends time sawing the dress… and then she looks so out-of-place on a roof top grieving. She doesnt fit into this world and never will. I wonder if that water bottle she opens makes her feel ”like she is home”… –> Watch:
So, ever since that video, I have always liked the images of mermaids.

Recently I found this website with AMAZING galleries of mermaids:
Welcome to Hannah’s underwater world where you can view stunning photos and video footage of her international mermaid adventures. Hannah travels the world to exotic locations being filmed and photographed as a mermaid swimming in coral reefs with dolphins, whales sea lions and turtles.
Seriously, how beautiful are these ? (Pic credit to Hannah and respective photographers)
And then I thought, since I am finally going on vacation where there will be sea and a pool everyday, I can finally realize my long-planned wish…
That was really fun to shoot!! :)
If you have been scrolling through this blog you will easily observe that one on my favourite colors is turquoise. Remember my turquoise post? :)
Well, my vacation has officially started this week and here what my inspiration for the next few weeks looks like. Enjoy!!
(All the pic sources are found in Pinterest. Images not owned by me.)
What a better way to start off vacation than meet up with girlfriends and go shopping. Me and Annmarie of Bisou Nordic went to Liu Jo showroom. Amazing staff allowed us to glance at collection of Spring 2013 and style some outfits. Laughter, girlfriends, sushi for lunch, shoes and bags, presents (!) and smiles… Didn’t I say that the day was perfect?!
… and then we had a lunch…
Beautiful Annmarie, see her post here
It was really fun to style the clothes with accessories. Here are my outfits.
1. The barbie look
I am absolutely in love with each piece of clothing in this look. The platform sneaker shoe, the “chanel” -like stitched jacket, the apricot pink jeans with chrystals and of course the bag. Adorable!!
2. The Audrey look
Very cute little black dress, lace cardigan, ballerinas and a bag to die for!
3. The updated rock chic
Or maybe this one is my favourite? Imagine, the most amazing suede turquoise heels and soft suede jacket embellished with chrystals. I had to try it on. The chrystals matched my golden ring so well. I HAVE TO BUY IT!!
4. The romantic look
This is something I would wear for a date! Lovely pastel colors. I really like the bag, it is actually a back-pack. Amazingly feminine, isn’t it? And then there was this another awesome suede jacket.
Everything was so beautiful and elegant and of very good quality. I think the brand manager has a dream job, I couldn’t probably do it. I would be constantly counting what will I buy from then next salary….
Right now I want EVERYTHING
