Wow, I just bought five new books!

Yeah well, I guess we will come back to that Leg Avenue collection later... Because I just have to share with you my five new purchases from eBay (well actually eight but the latter are two necklaces with images of Anne Boleyn and Marie-Antoinette as well as a pocket mirror with an image of Queen Elizabeth I on)! I sat up way too long last night, that resulting in five more books for my bookshelf (which is actually filled up), and for me to read. The books bought were The Queen of Subtleties: A Novel of Anne Boleyn, The Secret Diary of Anne Boleyn, The Hidden Diary of Marie Antoinette: A Novel, Portrait of an Unknown Woman, as well as Dirty Blonde - the Diaries of Courtney Love. I love historical fiction, I love it above all genres! And most of all I love historical fiction of the Tudor era. That era has it all - sex, power, conflicts and pretty dresses!

Yes, I have taken the pictures from xD

Shoes by Ellie

Okay, I just have to warn you guys that I am crazy about shoes. Shoes are an obsession, an addiction to me. Whenever I see a pair of shoes that I think are pretty and which doesn't cost too much, I buy them. 95% of the time I really do, which of course leaves me poorer and poorer... Because it is not only shoes I shop, I shop almost everything I want! I have been like that for a while, but after I turned 18, it got worse because I was now also able to shop from eBay. eBay, wow. What can I say, I think I have been shopping there for over $330 or something in only two-three months, and I have also been shopping at Etsy. But really, it has been totally worth it! Maybe I will show you some pictures of what I've been buying over the internet, but what I really was supposed to blog about in this entry was shoes. Shoes by Ellie. They have sooo many awesome shoes! I just hate the fact that they don't sell them themselves from their site, but sells their shoes through other sites (with different prices). I think it would have been way better if they sold the shoes themselves. Bah. And well, my problem is not really that the shoes are a bit pricey, but the high shipping costs. As mentioned before, I live in Norway, and if I am to pay for both shipping and the shoes, the price is just too much for me. Too bad, eh? But I have to admit that I still ordered a pair of adorable Sailor-shoes from three months ago, but I still haven't recieved them! I have to send a second mail requesting my shoes (and that pair of stockings). It has taken too long. Anyway, here are some pictures of Ellie-shoes that I'm dying after!
By the way, these shoes are "normal" Ellie-shoes, but tomorrow I think I'll post an entry about "Leg Avenue 09", a collection of really awesome shoes by Ellie shoes.

And oh, those with the anchor is the pair I have ordered, but not yet recieved, and I actually have a pair of glitter shoes, but those are Mary-Janes, and not just simple pumps which I also want!

A new blog about dresses and shoes, music and books, queens and rockstars!

Wow, I cannot believe that I finally did it! I've been planning for a long time now to start blogging in English on You see, I'm actually Norwegian, and been running a Norwegian blog on, but I thought to myself that I wanted to try something different, something exciting and fun! I decided that I would start blogging in English about stuff that I fancy and am interested in like fashion, history, music and so on. Well, duh, like I haven't been doing that on my Norwegian blog, but the thing is, you see, that this is not going to be a personal blog. Or, of course it's personal when I blog about my musical taste, my obsessions and so on, BUT I will not pour out all my feelings and inner thoughts to you on this blog. So I know, it's going to be a little superficial blog perhaps, but interesting and fun nevertheless! I guess some cues are baroque, Marie-Antoinette and other dead queens and ladies, alternative rock, Tudor England, ruffles and laces, books, Courtney Love, vintage, cupcakes, and lots of lots of SHOES and DRESSES!
