On Repeat

OwlleTickyTicky

FRIDAY VIBE. Let me introduce you to a new category on the blog: On Repeat, where I share with you new music discoveries, earworms or oldies that I can’t live without. Wanna hear my confession? Hi, I’m Lydia and I’m an overlistener. If a song catches my ear and I love it, there is no way I can only listen to it once… or twice. Or twenty times. It regularly drives people around me nuts. Can’t help it though. If it sticks, it sticks. Surely, I can’t be the only one with this “problem”?! Anyone?

Owlle is from France and her song Ticky Ticky has everything a pop song needs: a dash of eighties electro beats and a damn catchy chorus. Very catchy. Yet again got a severe case of overlistening. And guess what? I absolutely don’t mind. Perfect song for the weekend!

Bye Bye Summer

DSC_4885

THROWBACK. While going through my picture archives from last summer, I found these images that I never got to post. I guess I never did, because they don’t really show an outfit or are that special. But they capture the perfect laid-back summer cabin mood when no one has a worry in the world. We shot them during midsummer in Finland and looking at these images makes me instantly want to take the next plane to Helsinki, hop in a car and drive off to a summer cottage. Luckily this is exactly what’s gonna happen next week. I only need a little bit more patience. Yay to that!

Culture Calendar London – September

DSC_3150-1-2

AUTUMN APPROACHING. A new month, a new culture calendar. Since chilling in parks with friends is starting to get chilly, here is some inspiration to keep you entertained and culturally in the loop while autumn approaches. Also during September, London has so many great things to offer, which you shouldn’t miss out on. Unfortunately, I will not be able to enjoy most of this month’s events as I am off to Finland for most of it.

Lipstick Love

LL1

LIPSTICK SHADES. You have probably noticed my recent obsession with lipsticks. It’s not that my love for bold lips is any news, but there was a time when I preferred a light gloss in neutral shades, because it needs a lot less maintenance throughout the day. But somehow I rediscovered the beauty of a strong lip and make that extra effort to put some lipstick on. I like to keep my daily makeup routine very simple and natural. Usually, I only use a light powder, black mascara and a bronzer to define my cheekbones. But often an extra pop of lip colour can really make all the difference and helps to look more put together.

A Stripey Affair

SILK BLOUSES. Let’s talk summer essentials. I know, I know, it’s August already and therefore probably the last month of summer – at least here in the UK. But it’s not quite too late yet. Summers are certainly all about colours and light fabrics, or so they say. Whereas I fully agree with wearing light materials, I have to admit that I am somewhat insubordinate to¬† the peer pressure of wearing cheery bright colours at all times during the warm months. I mean, is it so terrible to wear black and neutrals during summers? I love my black, my neutral colours, and sure, also the occasional pop of colour. Who else is absolutely over people asking ‘Aren’t you terribly hot in this dark outfit’?
