Bring me a higher love

James Vincent Mc Morrow.. Now I did a post about this guy before. It was about his rendition of Wicked Game, only the best song EVER. And now I stumbled upon this beautiful, heart felled version of the 80's classic by Steve Winwood.. And it's all I need tonight. And it's everything I want to hear when I fall asleep in a minute. xx 

"Higher Love"

Think about it, there must be higher love
Down in the heart and in the stars above,
Without it, life is wasted time.
Look inside your heart, I'll look inside mine

Things look so bad everywhere
In this whole world, what's fair?
We walk blind and we try to see
Falling behind in what could be.

Bring me a higher love
Bring me a higher love,
Bring me a higher love
Where's this higher love, I've been thinking of?

Worlds are turning and we're just hanging on
Facing our fear, standing out there alone
Oh a yearning, and it's real for me
There must be someone who's feeling for me

Things look so bad everywhere
In this whole world, what's fair?
We walk blind and we try to see
Falling behind in what could be

Bring me a higher love
Bring me a higher love,
Bring me a higher love
Where's this higher love, I've been thinking of?

I will wait for it, I'm not too late for it
Until then, I'll sing my song
To cheer the night along

I could light the night up with my soul on fire
I could make the sun shine from pure desire
Let me feel the love come over me
Let me feel how strong it can be

Bring me a higher love
Bring me a higher love, oh
Bring me a higher love
I could rise above for this higher love.

Stone washed

See, I'm not much of a 'D(o) I(t) Y(ourself) - er.. But sometimes I see something, be it on Instagram, Facebook or one of the many (many) blogs I follow, and I just HAVE TO MAKE IT. Now I don't remember where I saw this, but I do remember falling in love with the combination of a denim shirt (preferably designed for a man, so you get that nice nonchalant over sized look) and cute girly stones and buttons (okay, and studs). The trick is easy: find a shirt (heck steal it from your man), run down to the old lady's knitting store, and get busy.

Make sure the shirt has a spacious and thick collar

Fabric glue works like a charm

The finished look

Look at me, all sparkly and happy because I can DO IT MYSELF. C ya ladies!

Doing the necessary: Top 10

So.. When Summer is being the bitch that she is lately, standing you up like usual, there are only so many things you can do to get even. Just think... You would've never had the time to do ALL THIS in one day, had today been a day of sunshine and outdoors fun:  

1. Watch 90's teen shows in your zebra sweatpants 

2. Read every issue of CODE and deciding on your personal style.. if you were a man.

3. Paint your nails. With glitter that wont come off. Like EVER.

4. Listen to Fleetwood Mac Landslide on repeat. In your old chair. Feeling good about not wearing make-up
(And then regret it when you see the picture)

5. Let the cat lick your nose

6. Re-frame all your pictures 

7. Wonder why you need all this stuff. And wonder if you should expand your bathroom so you can fit in more.

8. Pick flowers from the garden and pretend Robert Pattinson gave them to you.

9. Figure out how to make rice taste better

10. Work out. (Well.. that was a lie)

My best friend lives in Toronto and her name is Chantelle. We met when I was working in Canada for H&M in 2005 and have the most awesome friendship in to world. We traveled to many countries together and always have the best time, meet the coolest people and cry when it's time to say goodbye (well okay..I do, she is one tough cookie..!). Now Chantelle is one cool kid, so when she was rocking the pink hair back in '05, I was in awe and secretly hoped to have the guts to do that one day. So here we are, 2012. AND I FUCKING DID IT. So Tizzle, this one is for you. xx

Chantelle & Me, back in tha day.

This dye is awesome, I used the Cerise. Can't wait to try out the Lilac!

It's a semi-permanent dye, so it fades out in a pretty way. This is after the first washing

After the second washing. I like

A lesson in western

H&M shirt | Fashionology Collar tips | Charmins Ring | Tom Ford glasses | Chanel vintage loafers

So there used to be a time when dueling was for the gentlemen. You stole my women..?? Meet me at sunset! Can't decide which ego is bigger? Take 10 steps and draw you gun. That kinda stuff. Dueling was something early modern Europeans created, and really got it's allure by that thing called Chivalry, the medieval institution of knighthood. Now pistol dueling flowed straight out of this tradition, used by the Mid Western American men due to the absence of common law. Maybe not with a charming sword, but still pretty bad ass if you ask me. Oh well..whatever dudes... I just like the clothes!  xx

Fringe summer

Zara top | Ibana fringe jacket | Bershka pants | Flossy Ibiza espadrilles

Oh how we long for days at the beach and long summer nights.. Even though the sun says 'What's up' every now and then, this years summer season is often mistaken for fall. Or winter.. But I have good faith! And a wardrobe to match that faith! So COME ON sun, stay with me for a little while?

The necklace

Handmade Necklace by HippyChickIbiza 

Got this gorgeous necklace when I was in Ibiza. You gotta love an Island where they sell handmade treasures right along side the beach! I can't stop looking at this thing.. The stones, the colors, the pompons.. It's so unique! Makes every basic outfit a looker. Are you a fan of big necklaces?? Xx

Ladies love..

H&M pants | Jazzies Ibiza bracelet | Fashionology nl skull bracelet | Massimo Dutti watch

Is it true that girls dress for girls..? And if so, do the men in our lives then even notice when we wear a floral pant in stead of jeans? Or have our hair cut? Or change our nail color? Probably not. So ladies, this is for you: I wore my floral pants for the first time this week, I painted my nails bright baby pink, my Zara obsession grew with giant leaps of love, I got new Starbucks attire, I'm addicted to pale pinks and lilac on my lips, skulls are my good luck charms and I now sleep with the most delicious silk and lavender filled velvet on my eyes. Thanks for noticing! ;) xx
