F2 wedding
F2 ties the knot

 

On October 3, 2009, my husband Fil and I got married. This Saturday we’re taking our honeymoon. We’ll be spending the following three weeks traveling through France and Spain: Paris, the Pyrenees, Barcelona and Costa Brava. Do I sound excited yet? Well, I’m excited! I’m really excited!

Some of my favorite bloggers have agreed to do guest posts for me in my absence, you’ll be in good hands. I’m really looking forward to sharing them with you and hope you enjoy their company as much as I do. I read a lot of blogs, at least as much as time allows, and over time some have stuck with me.

I found myself returning again and again.

It’s been a long time coming but I’ve also updated my blogroll to reflect those blogs dearest to me.
In time I hope to feature more of the bloggers on my blogroll, you deserve to know who they are and what makes them so fantastic. Here’s a sneak peak of what’s to come:

Anika of by Anika – A self-worth activist and budding designer. Her beauty and love crosses the Atlantic and shines on my life. I think she single-handedly makes Oslo awesome.

Arash of Arash Mazinani – He blogs for both men and women. Not one to shy away from hot topics, he gets the conversation going across several continents.

Gracey of Fashion for Giants – Her smile radiates through her camera, over the internet and out of my monitor and lights up my day. I can’t help but want to smile back. In fact, I’m pretty sure I do.

Sarah of Cloud of Secrets – Do you ever want to be transported elsewhere? Whether it’s a land of textures or colors, Sarah takes my imagination out to a happier place. And she does it while still maintaining a beautiful, human connection.

I intend to feature these following bloggers after I return because I just can’t keep them a secret:

Casee Marie of The Girl Who Stole the Eiffel Tower – She’s intelligent and captivating, I can’t just scan anything she writes, I have to read the entire post. Every time.

Kristy Eléna of Kristy Eléna – Not just Sunglass Hut’s Blogger of the Year, she’s the heart and brains behind Full Time Fabulous, a community fostering inspiration and support to fashion bloggers.

Lee of Lee Oliveira – A street style photographer whose photos make me want to dress up and wander the streets of Sydney until he “accidentally” spots me! His photos capture much more than the outfit, it’s always a pleasure to be shown how he sees others through his lens.

Ofelia of My Intended Life – I dare you to peruse her blog and not feel compelled to move to south Florida, or at least go visit. Colors and wonderful aromas lift from the pictures of the fresh fruit and vegetables from her local farmers market, her thrift store treasures on display beckoning us all to look twice around us, hidden gems are everywhere.

Sacramento of Mis Papelicos – Sacramento is the sky-diver of fashion; she’s bold and romantic and lady-like and creative. This woman loves her world and her world loves her back. Don’t you want to live in it? I do.

Check back every few days to see who will make an appearance. In the meantime, I will see you again in three weeks, my friends. Happy spring!

{ style tip: }

On my wedding day I only had to do two things: look good and say “I do”. Some things don’t have to be complicated. The same applies for getting dressed.

I almost penned today “Midriff Tuesday” after putting on my clothes. The boxy top sat about four inches above the waist of these black pants. (No one needs to see that unless I’m at the beach.) Enter the long tank top to save the day. Over the years, I have amassed a nice variety of tank tops, both plain and lacy, for such occasions. The black and neutral ones are staples in my wardrobe. If you can only have two, those are the ones to start with. You’ll be glad you did.

    Happy Honeymoon, Fabienne and Filip! It’s up to you to transport *us* elsewhere by showing us photos from your trip when you return. I could use a vicarious European vacation.

    I need to work on my collection of nice tanks and camis. My main problem is that I prefer decent-looking trim (like yours) along with v-necklines, and that combo can be hard to come by.
