Pastel Spring Pixie

This morning I had some Yoga time in the sunshine through our living room window and painted my toe nails in pastels.
Yoga in the morning is a great exercise, and if you’d like to get started, you can use this great coupon for Patagonia gear to help you save.
Someone played the piano in our courtyard that someone has thrown out.
The latest issue of Dashing Magazine has been published this week.
I love the whole magazine and read it today for breakfast.
You can see above some of the shots of the hair and make up I have done for the Spring issue.
Now I am really in Spring mood. The sun tingels and looking at all these pretty pastels get’s me really excited. For Spring.

The 40s style just suits everybody, don’t you think? Slap some red lippie on, curl your hair and paint your nails.

Just in time for a fantastic 40s night out with my girlfriends.
Ellos features a range of nice, simple basic clothing- Scandinavian style.

The nightmare about the green dress

Here is to another fashionable wedding : Full of very well dressed guests! See more here.
I had a dream last night. My mum forced me to get married out of the blue, and not enough she wanted the whole event in her backyard, and she invited her friends only. I said: ” But Mum, I haven’t got anything to wear just now.” She handed me a dress and said: “Sure you do!” – “But it’s green…”, I desperately tried to make my point. “Don’t be so fussy” she said, pushing me out in front of the guests. I was wearing flip-flops and a green dress. My future husbands family she sat down in a corner away from the other guests. None of my friends were attending,
The whole thing couldn’t have been further from what I wish my wedding to be like one day. Stupid nightmares!!!
We have a saying in Germany that if you want your dreams to become true, you shouldn’t share them with anyone.
I don’t want this to become true at all, so I thought I better share it with the whole world, just to be safe.
Happy wedding planning everyone!

+ Vichy thermal water spray (amazing to set make up and refresh the skin)
+ big (round) sunglasses
+ a well fitting bikini/swimwear this one is by Lepel via lingerieplease they were kind enough to sent me a set to review and I LOVE IT.
+ a good book , (“A Woman’s Book of Yoga”, brilliant!)
+ non greasy sunscreen 30+ for the face
+ a hat

Thank you sunshine! I had the best time. See you soon.

Love Liv

when a fashion editor is getting married…

I just found these stunning photos of a true high fashion wedding.
And yes, this is a real wedding.
The lilac haired bride is fashion editor Katie Shillingford and her gorgeous husband is Alex Dromgoole.


When a fashion editor is getting married her wedding looks like straight out of a magazine.

Liv as wedding guest

Via My-Wardrobe.com
this dress is by Acne, shoes by Sam Edelman

In the unlikely event of Liv attending Dave’s brothers wedding in Australia in August this is what I would wear.
With smoky eyes and nude lips.
Sadly I am stuck with loads of work in London and couldn’t get the time off, so he will have to go on his own.
I can only dream- If I were going to attend, let’s say my work for August will be getting cancelled and I will be able to take holidays, at the same time I will be able to get a free flight and I will have only 1 day to get my outfit together online and uhm, while we are at it, I wouldn’t have to pay for my outfit either….
…Then I would prob. wear the outfit above. All found at My-Wardrobe.com

I would love to make it happen. Weddings are so magical.
I only need to find the time to go. The fabulous evening dress I can do myself.

catching up with u!

photos by Clare-Louise for Tiarama, Dresses, Make Up & Hair by Liv Lundelius

I have been busy lately.
So I really feel I have to catch up with you guys.
I have recently worked a great photo-shoot for the great accessories label TIARAMA.
I have done Make-Up, Hair and the dresses for the shoot.
The talented founder Suzanne does all her unique pieces by hand and for her latest pieces she organized a fantastic photo-shoot with a magical team including the incredible photographer was Clare Louise.
We headed out far into the English country side to shoot in an amazing old mansion that was half refurbished half falling apart.
Thanks again to the whole team!

time for new shoes…

Posted on: Thursday, June 2, 2011

I have been in “need” of fabulous new shoes.
Being a busy bee at the moment and the whole day on my feet I should better go for trainers or some sort of healthy shoe.
I usually don’t like compromises either.
But hey, I have to grow up or at least sometimes make a grown-up decision.
Just in case you are in the same boat, I have a shoe hybrid recommendation for you.

These heels are comfortable, but they are making your legs look loooong.
Might be good for dance-loving-brides(-maids) as well?
I got my new heels from very.co.uk because of my moving chaos situation I haven’t found the time to go shopping lately.
(hooray for online shopping!)

collage with images from here and there

It seems like there is a huge 70’s come back this season, as you might have noticed.
The seventies represent HAIR for me.
Hair was a lifestyle and women as well as men just let it grow.
My dad in fact still has his waist long seventies hair and my mum never allowed me to cut it at all.
Ah well, with the result that I cut it off as soon as moved out.
By now I am wiser and I will let it grow again (who knows for how long?)
At least to the length, that I can pull off all this cool plaits and stunning up-do’s.
(By the way: I am doing bridal hair as well!)

and finally….SPRING!

Freja Beha Erichsen by Rafael Stahelin for Vogue Korea September 2010

Spring arrived in London:
WINTER IS OVER
I can smell it, I can hear it and I can see it, most important I can feel it.
I am no longer freezing.
I want sunglasses and fruit smoothies and bbq’s. I want white.
I want a garden, or at least a balcony of roof terrace.
It is a super busy spring for me with a few exciting shoots coming up, full time job and moving house as well.
I haven’t had a day off in quite a while and it will stay like this a bit longer.
But I am happy. The sun is out and I am learning inspiring things every day.

What makes you happy right now?

Blushless dresses available here

My dresses have been on a trip as well…
While I have been in Australia, my dresses have been on the catwalk in Ireland.
Ireland’s Wedding Magazine “The Wedding Journal” is hosting weddings shows in different locations.
They have been so kind and just sent me a few photos of the presentation.
Babysteps for my label. Tiny steps.
I always knew that fashion design is not the easiest business, but without a partner it’s almost impossible.
Something needs to happen, I am looking for advice.
Life surprises me all the time with good things as well as not so good ones.

me – in australia…

All the Marc Jacobs campaigns photograhed by Juergen Teller are so inspiring…
I will be back at the 22nd of January 2011, with loads of new inspiration a deep tan and tons of energy.

L’amour Fou & Happy Christmas

Posted on: Thursday, December 23, 2010

It’s Christmas time. Time for big love stories. Time for movies.
Time for fashion inspiration.
The documentary about Yves Saint Laurent tells the story about
the love of his life Pierre Bergé.
It’s always good to have a creative partner in crime.
They have been a couple for 50 (!) years building their business,
sharing their creativity and supporting each other with love.
A documentary I am really looking forward to watching.
May you all have a wonderful Christmas time!
And here comes the trailer:

more orange lips, new year, new career

photos of Alice + Olivia Spring 2011 Ready-to-Wear via thefashionspot.com

I am still trying to ignore the winter and snow outside.
That’s why I am digging orange lips right now they remind me to focus on the upcoming holiday.
If you like the orange “let’s-escape-winter-look” as well, you can find a make-up tutorial for this look here.
Through my new day job beside Blushless I decided to listen to my passion and the direction that life is pushing me through.
That means I am about to start a new career as make up artist.
It’s not a completely new field for me but I will built a brand new portfolio and keep learning.

A truly Blushless Bride

Posted on: Tuesday, December 7, 2010


A wonderful bride just sent me photos of her wedding in her Blushless dress.
They make a such a stunning couple and it always makes me happy to see my dresses on real people.
Unfortunately some of their guests didn’t agree with publishing photos of them in the web, that’s why I can share just a small selection of this truly fun German summer wedding. But this photo is my favorite anyway.
Thank you Sandy for sharing! And all the best for the future.
