OOTD Sunday 24-03-2013

Another weekend bites the dust! Okay, this weekend was a mixed bag. I didn't get everything done I wanted to but I did accomplish a few things. Had a brilliant full attendance girls night out on Friday (pics still waiting to come out of my camera). Found an excellent landscape photography location on Saturday but the camera battery died just at the time. Went back to the spot on Sunday, took some good shots but apparently the photos which made me proud on the small camera screen weren't as mind-blowing on the laptop. UGH! So am planning to use Easter holidays for full day photo walks. God please no sub-zeros and overcast days during Easter #fingerscrossed!

But hey, I had a great time with my nomadic coffee lover twin who likes to wander around in freezing Stockholm and keeps up with my unlimited photo stops and change of lenses. She's such a sweetheart to never to say no :-) Here is an outfit pic from my talented friend behind the lens. We took this pic in Espresso House Gamla Stan as we desperately needed to grab a coffee mug to inject life into our cold numb fingers and this was the only cafe open after 19:00. How I wish Stockholm had some cafe night life too!

Hope you like my 'run of the mill' OOTD and wish you all a wonderful week ahead!

My first whack at Portrait photography!

I am very excited to share with you all my first attempt at portrait photography. These are a bunch of photos I took last weekend. Kids are just my favorite to photograph. Those big smiles, wispy hair and beautiful eyes are so beautiful to capture. Specials thanks and hugs to all those who let me photograph them and their cuties Would love to know what do you think about the photographs both aesthetically and technically.

OOTD - Monday blues vs Denim blues!

Some tips to beat Monday Blues from my diary :)
1) Greet people - Say Hello, Good Morning & Thanks you as much as you can.
2) Look Smart and Happy – Spruce up after a casual weekend, wear good clothes and radiate confidence.
3) Set up feel good Goals for the week.
4) Consider the rewards for goal attainment - A movie night or a dark chocolate on Saturday can well serve the purpose (at least for me it does ;))

Have an excellent week!

I cannot agree more! 

How does this photo communicates with you?


I Am Back!

Yes I am back! With a newly refurbished blog full of exciting stuff. It has been over a month since I last posted, so you must be wondering, where the hell did I disappear? I was out on a month long vacation back home. I spent a lot of time travelling, exploring places and discovering my new hobbies which influenced my decision to expand Plainjanesfashionrescue to something more than a fashion blog. How... you will soon find out! Well done is better than well said, isn't it ;)

"Style Hamster" is a street style blog full of styling ideas and beautiful expressions... and more to unfold in time to come! By the way what do you think about the new name and Taj Mahal snapped by me?
