To balance out all the posts about the fabulous things, this post is the first in the category ” Things that make you go hmm….”.
How many naked and pregnant celebrities does the world have to see?! The first one was truly fabulous and stirred up the opinions of the crowd. The cover of a pregnant Demi Moore was a huge succes to Vanity Fair and the photography was taken by the one and only Anne Leibovitz. Actually I’m a little embarrassed to even mention Anne Leibovitz in a post that is not about the usual fabulous things. But let me stress – I am a huge fan and admirer of Leibovitz and none of the non-fabulous writings in this post, is pinned on her! I will make amends in a later post dedicated to Leibovitz.

Anyways, since then we have seen Cindy Crawford, Claudia Schiffer, Christina Aguilera, Nia Long – just to mention a few! And latest in line to show of her belly is Jessica Simpson. What happened to creativity and innovative new ideas?! It is beginning to resemble the moon landings! The first one was really exiting and had everybody’s attention. The second time the audience dropped and the third time even less people saw the landing because it was pretty much the same all over again. After a while NASA stopped to broadcast the moon landings because the people wanted to see progress and they expected to see something new. And I have to say, it is time for the magazines to do as NASA – stop showing the same and the same again and again! We cannot take anymore pictures of women with huge bellies! Please find a new way to display the pregnant women if you are that eager to show pregnancies. We beg you!!!

I don’t have much to say about this fabulous commercial directed by amazing Bruno Aveillan (whom we already know from Lanvin, Jaguar, Louis Vuitton etc..) You have to see it for yourself and indulge in this fantastic and historical universe!! Remember to check out the fabulous website as well.
If I was going on my sweet sixteen, I would probably think Justin Bieber was fabulous. Maybe, it is because I’ve surpassed the 16th year with 20 plus a year or two, that it wasn’t Bieber I was drooling all over, while watching one of this week’s events. My favorite talk show host, Ellen DeGeneres, celebrated Justin Bieber on his birthday and had invited him and his manager, Scooter Braun as guests on the show. Scooter was there to deliver his birthday gift to Bieber, THE fabulous Karma from Danish Henrik Fisker who also is behind designs like the BMW Z8 and fabulous Aston MartinDB9 and V8 Vantage.
The hybrid of a 403 HP gasoline engine that only produces electricity to the battery, this 2.6 ton heavy car can reach 60 mph in 6.3 seconds. The gasoline engine is optional as it can be deactivated on the drivers display. However in Denmark, we hope for an optional edition where the gasoline engine by default is deactivated, as it otherwise isn’t likely to be approved by Danish Tax services as an electric vehicle. In Denmark that will in terms of price make a huge difference. As an electric car, the Fisker Karma will be priced app DKK 829.00 ($148.000) and as a hybrid car a staggering DKK 2.200.000 ($391.100). The Fisker Karma has a unique exterior design and is of course available with the most luxurious interior as well and you can choose from a range of tree and leather cabins. OR you could also go with the EcoChic version where all interior is made from 100% recyclable non animal materials and you can enjoy the ride with good caution to the environment. So if you live in Denmark, the slogan of the commercial “Designed to get you hot, not the planet” will be the selling argument because unless you have a bank account with DKK 2.2 mill in spendable cash, you should get this car for the fabulous design and sustainable thoughts behind it – not the rush you normally would feel from the kickdown!
I don’t about you but I can definitely see myself cruising in this baby. But I think theFisker Karmais totally wasted on an 18 year old kid who’s biggest fans are girls with nail polish, fashion and boys on their mind….by second thought that was not a valid argument. Let me rephrase that, I think that the Fisker Karma is totally wasted on an 18 year old boy whose biggest fans still ride their bicycles. No, that was not a good either… I think, that the Fisker Karma is totally wasted on an 18 year old boy whose biggest fans are girls who still haven’t got their driver’s license. There, that must be my best argument. Truth is, I’m so jealous – I want that car….! Congratulations to Justin Bieber…you lucky brat!
So today I’m heading towards Jutland to celebrate my gorgeous friend’s 40 years birthday along with 40 fabulous women. But that is not really what this post is about – more about the weekend on Monday.
No this post is about fashion and a bad observation in the train this morning. Sitting across a woman who is dressed very fashionable in a Montclair winter jacket, russian fur hat and shiny black tights, some very cool boots that I couldn’t recognize brandwise – and on her arm a fabulous Miu Miu handbag. Now here comes the part that makes you go hmmm…! The lady was at least 70+!! Pardon me – I love fashion and I it is great to see that older women has an interest in fashion but come on?! Who wears pleather pants when they are retired and grandparents??? Let me rephrase that, WHO wears pleather pants?!?
My point is fashion is fabulous but dress your age lady – the rest of us has to look at it!!
I actually took a picture of her in the train but I’m to afraid to post it. Dressed like that she’s probably on Facebook, hipstagram and Twitter as well and dating some hardcore bodybuilder… You will have to imagine this one for yourself which probably will be a much more pleasant experience that won’t burn your eyes like it did to mine. However it did make me laugh… So I guess, there is a good flipside to the bad!!
Just a little note in the name of Valentine’s day. Of course, it is wonderful that people all around the world celebrate and cheer Valentine’s day with their loved ones. But on the other hand, love should be a something you give or receive every day – all year! Even if you are single…like me! By that I don’t mean that you should buy or get flowers, chocolate or gifts every day. But give a little love every day to people you either know, want to get to know or don’t know!! A little love can be disguised in a smile, a helping hand to the old lady who lives in your building, tell your best friend that you are happy that he or she is in your life, let the guy in the park know that you think his dog is cute – whatever! Just do something else that will make another person smile. I promise you that it will also make you smile, even more. Remember the unexpected gift of love is always better than commercial love!
Spread love and the world is fabulous
– happy Valentine’s day!
I love my friends! They are truly fabulous and I am so blessed to have so wonderful people in my life. Do you ever think about how lucky you are to have the friends you have? Do you ever stop to consider why they care and why they chose you to be their friend?
I hope that my friends chose to be friends with me because they see me as honest, trustworthy and hopefully, just a little bit fun to hang out with! I hope they know, that I anytime will listen to their problems without prejudice but with empathy and compassion, and that I will fight for them and their causes. But most of all, I hope that they know I’ll be there whenever and whereever they need me . My friends are my family!
