Pretty bows.

Pretty bows
A few days ago I bought these ever so pretty bows from Bianco, that I thought I'd show you. I'm thinking of going back and buying more colours, perhaps.
Black bow
Purple bow

On another note, I was tagged by the lovely Honey Bunny in Wonderland.

What is your current obsession?
Even if I wish it wasn't, studying for my exam in June. Other than that, working out.

What is your weirdest obsession?
I have different things I obsess about at different times, then the obsession just dies. Right now, as silly as it sounds, the future.

What are you wearing today?
A gingham dress, white cardigan and some lace tights.

What's for dinner?
Pasta, I suppose. Preferably with pesto if I succeed making it on my own.

What's the last thing you bought?
Some food.

What are you listening to right now?
The sound of cars outside my window.

What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
Ben and Jerry's half baked or fossil fuel.

What do you think about the person who tagged you?
She's wonderful, with an impressive sense of style which is never boring.

If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you like it to be?
Maybe somewhere in the south of France, or in Italy - on the countryside. It would be a wonderful getaway.

What's your must have piece for summer?
A pretty boater hat or a sunhat. Or any hat that would suit me.

If you could go anywhere in the world for next hour, where would you go?

Which language do you want to learn?
I want to know Hebrew better, then I also want to learn French, Italian, and Dutch. And I'd like to brush up on my Russian.

What's your favorite quote?
I'm not much of a quotes-person, sadly.

Who do you want to meet right now?
My boyfriend.

What is your favorite color?
Green. In clothing, reds, dark blues, white, black, green, and also soft pastel colours.

What is your favorite piece of clothing in your own closet?
My prettiest dresses.

What is your dream job?
Maybe something within fashion, or photography, which is so far from the direction I am actually going in.

What's your favourite magazine?

If you had $100 now, what would you spend it on?
Facial treatment, or spa.

Favorite designer?
Marc Jacobs. Sonia Rykiel, Chloé, By Malene Birger...

What do you consider a fashion faux pas?
Jean skirts. I seriously cannot stand them.

Do you admire anyone's style?
Not so much celebrities (although Zooey Deschanel is an exception) since I am more inspired by bloggers with wonderful style.

Describe your personal style?
Feminine, vintage or retro and girly.

What are you going to do after this?
Make dinner.

What are your favourite movies?
Amelie, Garden State, Leon, the Pianist, the Notebook, the Darjeeling Limited, the Royal Tennenbaums, Big Fish, Atonement, Marie Antoinette, the Painted Veil, Les Chansons d'Amour, Les Choristes, Annie, Catch me if you can, V for Vendetta, Closer, Schindler's List, Memoirs of a Geisha, Breakfast at Tiffany's, Forrest Gump, Alice in Wonderland...

What's your favourite fruit?
Banana, blueberry, orange.

What inspires you?
To put it short, everything around me. Nature, the weather, magazines, films, people, blogs...

The rules : 1. Respond and rework; answer the question on your blog, replace one question that you dislike with a question of your invention, add more one question of your own. 2. Tag eight other people.

I'm tagging the following people:
Flossy Blossom
Lost in a spotless mind
A new chapter... pretty green tea
Le parapluie déteste la pluie
Tia Cherie
Cookies make the world go round
Eda's planet
The story of a matchstickgirl

De var kjempesøte, har siklet litt på den lilla med prikker selv:)
Sv. Kremen er en aftersun fra Hawaiian Tropic, pluss to lipglosser med solfaktor fra samme merke. Pleier å kjøpe solkremer fra Hawaiian Tropic når jeg er i Syden, liker de veldig godt:)

Parapluie said...

Oh, I love the bows and I can't wait to do the tag :)

Rain said...

Hi Ariella!

Love your style!

I noticed your from Norway. I have to say I watched the Eurovision SOngfestival, and Norway totally rocks! He's indeed everyone's favourite, and my favourite too! Hope he wins!

Ellie said...

Fabulous headbands!
As for the bunnies; apparantly it's quite normal for people to get close enough to pet them. We didn't get quite that close though. Everyone was shocked that we didn't get to pet them.

Mo said...

love those bows, love the tag and love green too ;-)

Shen-Shen said...

Looove the bows! And I'm a huge fan of "Catch Me If You Can" !

Emily said...

Your new bows are very pretty. I recently bought a bow headband, too. I'll have to remember to show it on my blog soon.

Homemade pesto is one of my favorite foods! Mmm :)

Hello miss! I went over to MAC and I tried on the lady danger shade and was soooo in love.

Christine said...

Bows! So adorable. I enjoyed reading your tag, too! I wish I could be obsessed with working out or being healthy..but my laziness just kind of kills it haha.

Mo said...

it's just a notebook, you're supposed to keep track of the lovers you liked i guess ;-) it's kinda weird but fun.

you're assuming right, i have 5 papers to hand in before june and my master dissertation to work's no vacation :(

Imogen said...

I love these and good choice of colours. Its always good to have black and I really like polka dot myself. Your hair pieces are always beautiful, I like it how you make some of them.

Thank you for tagging me. I've never been tagged before so that was a very nice surprise for me:) I'll do the tag in my next post.

Hello Ariella!! I love your bows! I love those girly things!btw, I like a lot the pink shoes in your previous post, where are they from? Ive been looking online for shoes in that sytle but it isnt easy to find, I want one in white. I liked it when you wrote about your dream job: "aybe something within fashion, or photography, which is so far from the direction I am actually going in" cause thats exactly what happens to me, but anyways. Have a nice weekend, it is rainning here!! Kisses!

As I love everything that can be worn in head, I'm now running to Bianco to see if I can still found one of those!
