The end is near...

So I am in my last week at film school and things are at their most craziest! Unfortunately my stress levels did show their true colors today (I blame the actors that keep cancelling on me at the last minute...ARGH!) while I was getting ready to shoot an interview for my mockumentary and it was not pretty, especially for the poor boyfriend that had to take it on the chin. But don't worry, I made up for it with a delicious spaghetti bolognase and a big fat kiss to say sorry:) More shooting tomorrow but I will try to concur my stress this time as I really don't like myself like that.

I am leaving back to Iceland in 12 days!...Shiiit! Time goes to fast when you're busy as a mofo, jeez! I really don't think the thought of going home is really sinking in just yet but I am predicting that I will wake up sometime next week in the middle of the night in a stress frenzy, worried about getting everything ready and done for the big move again...Ohh well, at least I'll be ready for it;)

I've been shopping a bit lately and I'd like to share the love:

I've been looking for the perfect blazer for ages and I finally found it in Dotti. I nearly didn't see at it was hiding in some corner, not the best selling strategy ever as this is a very popular type of jacket but I managed to snatch it up.

Oxford Flats - Again something I've been looking for and finally found on an unplanned browse in the city the other day and they only had two pairs left and one was in my size...which never happens! Happy days:)

The perfect leopard shirt from Mink Pink.

I've also bought a lot of makeup and skin care products and I will give reviews on them in my next blog.

I'd like to end this blog with the stupidest quote I've heard...ever!

"Whenever I watch TV and see those poor starving kids all over the world, I can't help but cry. I mean I'd love to be skinny like that but not with all those flies and death and stuff"
- Mariah Carey

Hope you are all having a good week...xx

Twin Cat Vintage

I would like to give an honorable mention to one of my favorite, if not my favorite eBay vintage clothing store. Twin Cat Vintage summarises everything I love about stylish vintage gems.
And that's not all. As you can see from the photos above, Twin cat Vintage not only sells beautiful clothes but also takes gorgeous pictures using their stunning models, wearing mostly the clothes that are being sold. It is always a joy for me to check out their listings to look at the TCV eye candy, as I like to call it;)
And the gorgeous girl that started it all is such an inspiration to me because one of my ultimate dreams (after becoming a successful director...hehe) is to one day own a successful vintage online clothing store and then branch out into a real life store on some main street in a fabulously trendy city, Ohh Yeah!
Plus I loves cats so there you go;)

.::Home is where the heart is::.

Sorry for the lack of posts recently I have just been stressed out from having too much on my plate this month. I blame the mandatory 3D animation class that I have to attend every Saturday for 6 hours straight...yes, you heard right 6 friggin hours!!! I have really come in touch with my inner nerd in this course and I'm doing better that I thought I would which is scaring me a bit.
My year at SAE Institute is nearly finished (time flies!) and I'm now working on my last major production. I was going for a music video which appeals to me the most at this stage but ended up having this other great idea and doing something completely out of my comfort zone.
And the winner is: A fictional documentary or mockumentary, if using the correct term.
I know, not everyones cup of tea but I have written it about a very interesting subject and hopefully I will keep the viewers in suspense they whole way through. I'm at the stage now of finding actors and polishing up my script but hopefully I will be ready to shoot next week, fingers crossed because there is not a lot of time left...AAAA!

And on that note I am pleased to report to everyone back home in Iceland that I have finally got myself together and booked the trip back home...yayy! Last weekend was all about planning and booking the whole thing and I am very relieved to not have to worry about it anymore.
So it will be bye for now to Australia on the 8th of September and hello Singapore for 2 days. Then off to London for 6 days to do the tourist thing, shopping and visiting my dad. And finally we will be arriving back to our beloved economic-crisis-land on the 16th of September., I don't mean that. I am really looking forward to seeing my family and friends, economic crisis or not. So exited to be travelling again soon:)

My birthday is coming up this weekend and surprisingly I haven't got a lot planned which is totally out of character for me. Normally I would be planning to have a huge party but it's just not appealing to me this year. Cake, drinks and clubbing will be my birthday of choice and hopefully everyone will have a great time.

I've bought a lot of new stuff recently which I will be sharing with you very soon:)

Hopefully everyone is having a great week! xxx
