Sweet dreams.


Marni for H&M

I am sure that the Marni Collection for H&M is going to be so much more exciting than the one Versace did. That was seriously not my cup of tea.  

Ohh, and bonuspoints for designing a mens collection aswell!



These fierce wellingons from Colors of California are for sure on my wishlist atm! Woah!

I have to admit, when it comes to makeup.. I´m not faithful, at all. 
So out with the old, and in with the new! :)

This time I´m changing into the award winning Emporio Armani products. 

- The Designer foundation (SPF20), no. 5,5/Natural Beige.
- The Fluid Sheer Illuminator, no. 2/Shimmering Beige.
- Concealer, no. 3/Pale Beach.

(If I´m not entirely wrong, the only way to get a hold on these products in Norway is at Steen og Strøm in Oslo)

Are you true to makeup brands or do u experiment? Just curious.




Me and my sweet friend Rubi, at Makeup Stores 15th anniversary show at Bar Tjuvholmen. 

Great show with beautiful makeup, hair and dresses, and the Burlesque entertainers were amazing! :) 
Shame on me for not taking any pictures.. I sure need a new camera. 

What I was wearing: 
White T // Bik Bok
Blazer // Zara
Choker // Lindex
"Leather" trousers // Bik Bok 
Watch // Bonett

Mugtailes and Hidden Animals

Take a look at these incedibly cute cups! 

I ordered these a while back from Cornelias Hus, which is one of my favourite interiourshops. It is situated in Trondheim, but you can also order their products online.
Teatime! :) 



This illustration by Esra Røise takes my breath away!


Galaxy dazzeled

Someone would find this quite silly, which I completely understand. However, when I get a new phone I always feel like "messing" it up a bit, because I always find the look of the phone somewhat boring.
I went to Panduro and purchased some stickers that looked like studs (it´s the same as used in scrapbooking etc.), and decorated my phone with them. 
Cool, isn´t it?
The only drawback with the stickers was that they got "worn" quite fast, as they where made of plastic, so they became white. (Perhaps it is possible to find better ones in metal?)



Hi guys!
It´s been quite a while now since I have posted anything on The Life of Marlen. 
This summer my camera got stolen, my smarphone broke, and on top of that I didn´t have any access to the internet in periods of the summer due to my job. However, this also gave me the chance to think through how I want me blog to be, and changes that can make it more interesting for you guys. I hope that there are still someone out there that are interested to follow me in the future, I think we´ll have a blast! :)

I´ll start of by recommending a blog that I´ve fallen in love with reasonately.
Love aesthetics is really wort checking out if you are into the small details that makes an outfit amazing. This girl is beautifull, creative and innovative at the same time, but still she keeps it sort of classic. I love the way she dresses, her view on fashoion and the gorgeous pictures she shares with us.
