An icon has past way
I was really chocked today to find out that Alexander McQueen took his life this morning!! It feels so unreal that someone so young, so successfull and loved by so many chose to take his life.. but I guess that we have seen that quite a lot over the past year with young actors and celebreties taking their own lives...
It's so sad - so hard to understand.
Alexander McQueen - you will be missed!
Step into my wardrobe
HM is a very smart company. They have succeded with a budget concept in a world where budget concepts are something that is pretty un-cool and a bit tabu.
Now they have launched a new product on their site and it's called Step into my wardrobe and here you can dress a model with different clothes and get ideas with new outfits to put on. Great for us girls with big wardrobes and nothing to put on...
Whyred on sale
There are still lots of great buys out there. Swedish brand Whyred have at the moment got 70% on their whole aw2009 collection. It's almost to good to be true..
How about these four items: jacket - 1050 SEK (100 euro), dress - 750 SEK (75 euro), shoes - 900 SEK (90 euro) and jeans 450 SEK (about 45 euros)
There is lots to be found out there so keep looking!
A friend of mine told me about this new product called NeuLash. It's suppose to help your eyelashes grow thicker, longer and more healthy - it even works on eyebrows, which is great for a person like me whose eyebrows and lashes over the past years for some reason has gotten really fragile and breaks all the time and falls off really easily..
So here we go - NeuLash
Who’s It For
neuLash is ophthalmologist safety-tested and is ideal for women and men, brittle, weak, thin, or short eyelashes, contact lens wearers, those who have eyelash extensions, or those who have undergone radiation treatment. neuLash can also be used to improve the appearance of sparse, thin eyebrows. Clinical studies have found neuLash to be safe and gentle to eyes, yet extremely powerful in its stimulating and rejuvenating properties.
How To Use
Directions: Apply neuLash to the base of the upper eyelashes using the applicator brush. The eye should be completely clean of any make-up or eye creams. Start from the inner corner of the eye outwards, directly on the base of your eyelashes. neuLash is to be used once daily in the evening before bedtime.
Okay - wish me luck. I'm really excited and pray that I'm one of the 98% of people who have tested the product that it works on.

Skin Deep Stockholm
YES! Finally you are mine.. Ok, some of you might think that I have a obsession with Mr Marc, I promise I don't but he is one of may favourites on the block.
In Stockholm there is a lovely shop called Skin Deep on Humlegårdsgatan. Right now they have got 50-70% off and you can find LOVELY things from Marc Jacobs, Matthew Williamson, See by Chloé, DvF, Theory and many many many more, so enjoy... some goodies from the aw2009 collection is still to be found!
Marc by Marc Jacobs - my best bargain
Many of us get great kicks from doing a great bargain in these times of sales. I've done lots of great buys at this year's sale (most of it in NYC - most of my savings vanished for some odd reason..) BUT this my friends, THIS is my best bargain by far. A cardi from Marc by Marc Jacobs that I found at Bloomingdales for the lovely price of 61 dollars. It was originally 278 dollar.. that's what I call a great buy!
A Single Man
Always when you are in New York - ask yourself what would Carrie Bradshaw do.. Well not exactly, but it's always more fun to do it in style..
One of my favourite things to do when I'm in New York is to go to the movies, but not any movie. It has to be at the theater up by Bergdorf & Goodman called Paris. They always have a fantastic choice of movies, not just the normal Hollywood productions, but the more sophisticated choices. Last time I saw The Reader, this time (last week) it was The Single Man by Tom Ford.
Yes, you are right, THE Tom Ford, the designer. This is his first movie ever and it's good, really good. With actors such as Colin Firth, Julianne Moore and Matthew Goode, the movie is wonderful, very emotional and beautiful. It's about love, friendship and a broken heart when loosing someone near.
So a big plus for this movie and keep an eye open for it at a movie theater near you!
White Slab Palace in New York - a Scandinavian with style
On the corner of Allan St and Delancye St on the East sida of New York lives a quite new Scandinavian to the neighbourhood.
When I'm in New York i always try and find new favourits on the restaurant and bar scene (which isn't very hard in a city like NYC.) Last week I found this lovley place on the east side owned by some Swedes and in a quite odd neighbourhood is a lovley place to bumb into.
Great food (try the good world burger.. it's the shit) and nice service. Just don't forget that cash is king in this joint. No cards accepted, but they do have an atm mashine so don't worry, you won't have to do the dishes if you forget the cash.

Do I dare to say goodbye??..
I have had this blog for almost 3 years now and it's been my little baby that I have feed with postes and comments over the years. The only thing is that the internet has exploded with blogs and I don't really feel like there is a need for me anymore, I've done my part, I've inspired a few and hopefully written something worth reading every now and again.
But right now, I don't feel inspired or the need to write.. I don't want to give up my baby completely, but I haven't been a good mother to fashionholic the last year and she deserves something better, so for now.. goodbye..
