As a child, I was always communicating through the written word and drawings. I could get lost in a drawing, sitting hour after hour while listenings to Michael Jacksons on repeat. As a matter of fact, during my college years I only got an A in my art class. My grammar has never been really up to speed, maybe because theoretics of building a correct sentence bored my to death.
As a matter of fact, the older I got the more self-conscious I got because teachers and friends where pointing out my grammar errors. There’s nothing wrong in pointing out errors, but since I wasn’t secure enough in my voice I felt less of a writer since I couldn’t even put together a sentence according to rules.
The demons continued to grow when I moved back to Sweden, after pursuing a degree in communication and journalism I was sure the PR-agencies would find my profile somewhat interesting – little did I know that I would soon find out to I had been focusing on improving my english to the point that my Swedish was now worse than ever. I was literately writing Swedish according to American standard, which really means writing backwards. Since I’m trilanguage, I both speak and write (apparently not well enough) Farsi (Persian, or Irani if you like.. ) so I’m used throwing sentences and even mixing all languages in one sentence.
Unfortunately, now I’ve realised that it has gone too far. Too far meaning that I’ve let myself get censored – and I’ve done it all alone. In the same time I’ve built a blog that revolves my outlook on life both in terms of style and lifestyle. Maybe there’s no coincidence I love standing in behind the camera, the camera allows me to capture things the way I see it and tell a narrative through my eyes. And no one can really say it’s wrong, because there’s nothing really wrong with how we choose to capture as we see it.
I could never imagined that my photos would get the feedback that it has, to even be able to be a brand ambassador for a camera brand still blows my mind. But with time, I now see the bigger pictureas each piece of puzzle has fallen to place. It’s not about following the rules, its not about painting inside the lines. Its about expressing whatever your soul urges to express. After all, for me… life is one big expression of our souls urges. Either we listen and follow that inner voice and our bliss. Or wake up and come to the conclusion that you have been keeping your eyes shut all along.

I’m not really the person who’s known for wearing colors, (haha duuuh?!) so i though it was about time to add a colorful addition to my collection of coats.
I stumbles upon this beautiful coat and fell in love instantly, the shape is timeless yet with a modern touch – hence its gonna be wearable season after season. I also like that its a bit shorter than my other coats but covers my tush (I have no plans in freezing my ass off literally this winter).
Secondly, I’ve found a model of trousers that I really lik – allow me to introduce kick flares. A great edition if you’re vertically challenged and curvy as me.They’re more fun that a pair of regular black trousers, perfect when you what something more to happen.
What coat color are you craving this season? And what do you think about these trousers? Tell me below!
I have a very special relationship with my hair, it communicates my mood – it also sometimes dictates my mood with impossible hair boners. I am all for changes, drastic ones too. If I feel too attached to my hair it needs to go, maybe its the feeling of something having control over me that takes over (haha who know hair could have that power, but, yeaahh).
Long beautiful hair is wonderful, you know that moment when you see a woman with luxurious hair that sways (and isn’t hair extension, not that’s anything wrong with that but we’re talking about the real deal here) as she walks by. However, there’s something more magnetic about those with short hair (sorry I know my hair is short, but bear with me now) that I fin more interesting and intriguing.
Maybe its because femininity is associated with long hair, and having short hair makes it boyish the publics eye? But for me, a female who can carry femininity in short hair communicates something bolder. It says “I am not my hair, I can be just as feminine without it”, and I’m drawn and inspired by those strong females because that state of mind is not only communicated through out their hair but also through out their personalities and actions they take.
For instance, I was browsing through Pintrest and was drawn to the designer Alessandra Colombo instantly (and let’s not talk about her style, I mean ahhhhh yes!) Another person who caught my attention was Miroslava Duma when she went from long hair to short and bad ass (with all do respect Mira hehe) , she’s been a source of inspiration for many years now (not only in terms of style but also as a entrepreneur). Thirdly, the last person I need to talk about is Garance Doré. I have been admiring her work (yes, everything from the illustrations, the photographies, her writing and can’t wait to get my hands on her recently published book) for so many years but when she cut off her hair I went ”yaaaasssss!!”.
Maybe I’m drawn to these types because they standing out from the masses, I’ve always had something for rebellious personalities. Those who dare to go their own way and not afraid to communicate it through their style. When I cut my hair the first time I was afraid, but that fear made me realise that it had to go. My inspiration for the first do? This lady! Her style is amazing and bad to the bone (in the most positive way). Speaking of bad to the bone, a forever source of inspiration both in sense of style and writer – she’s a fresh breath of air and I love who she has a serious passion for fashion with a humorous outlook. I’m talking about Leandra Medin of course, aka Man Repeller.
Moral of the story is, we’re being bombarded with ideals of how to look, dress and act but there’s nothing more beautiful watching a woman being the unfiltered version of who she is – both on the inside as well as on the outside. So here’s to you ladies, who go your own way – who dare to stand out from the crowd. You’re my source of inspiration, both in the sense of developing a personal style (eehh and apparently sticking to short hair), personality and as women.

Takin inspiration from this summers most popular skirt, yet in a longer and fall appropriate matter – the button up skirt is back (as it ever was gone) in full swing. I’m daydreaming of combining different textures, (faux) leather and knitted off-shoulder sweater.
Speaking of off-shoulders, a great piece to which in my opinion can be über feminin and flattering – more necklines, please. What better than to topp it with a pair of beautiful earrings? Arrrggghhh! (Can you tell I’m excited? Haha!)

”I have often said that I wish I had invented blue jeans: the most spectacular, the most practical, the most relaxed and nonchalant. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity – all I hope for in my clothes.”

I am always on a perpetual jeans quest, however finding the perfect fit can sometimes be complicated. Especially if you’re not a fan of trying clothes at the store (yet love shopping. Complicated, I know.)
I’ve been raiding the wave of skinny jeans for years occasionally changed to boyfriend jeans when needed a break. I am all for mixing it up but always knew that there a pair of jeans that needs to be found.
So what is the epitome of a perfect jeans? Besides from fitting you body type perfectly, its versatile in its style so you can wear them to whatever, whenever. And voila! Here you have them, and I am planning to show you how versatile they actually are. Best of all, besides from being everything I’ve looked after a pair of jeans… they’re very affordable.
