Unmistakably Nordic in flavor, Sofia Talvik somehow still conforms to American interpretations of her own original music, a North Sea siren blending sparkle and melancholy, creating a special niche of folk music.
So I just told you I love food… Well I also love shoes. And any girl who loves shoes knows it’s more like an addiction. There are ladies who loves handbags. Me, I buy one that I love after many hours looking for the perfect one and wear it till it falls apart (quite literally).
But shoes… They’re quite a different story. I guess I could say I’m a shoe collector with no intention of being one. I see them and I think I shouldn’t. I think I have too many already. And yet they call out to me. Their tiny voices saying “buy me, buy me”.
So today with 15 minutes to spare between work and party I found these great not too high heeled boots on sale (of course).
I asked if they had a return policy – no.
I asked if I could have them reserved until tomorrow – no.
(At this point I felt I’d done all I could to turn them down.)
What was left to do but to buy them?
In a weak moment I heard myself saying” I’ll take them”, while picturing my overfull wardrobe at home, and at the same time picturing someone else walking away in these boots on sale in my size…
Walking to the party with the bag in my hand, I kept thinking how my husband would sigh over me buying yet another pair of shoes I don’t need. So when I called him later from the bar and told him about that new pair of shoes that would clutter our apartment I dreaded the worst but he said… “Honey, I love you and all your shoes”.
And I guess that’s a story of true love, whether you apply it to the shoes or the wife buying them.
“I fell under the charm from this sublime artist equipped with a voice with angel and a true artistic universe”
I found this wonderful quote on a Belgian/French blog called With Music In My Mind. The blogger recently discovered my music and wrote such a wonderful piece about it that I had to post it here on my website. You can read the entire blog here: http://withmusicinmymind.blogspot.com/2008/09/coup-de-foudre-sofia-talvik-nouvel.html
I don’t think so, but this upcoming monday the hair stylist that is known for making celebs like Simpson, Kate Moss, Alicia Keyes and others look their best is going to work his miracles on my not so fab, scandinavian hair. I’m not going to make this into a beauty blog (not yet anyways) but I’m quite excited to see just how glamourous I can get with the help from Michael Kanyon. And if you want to see the results too, just turn on The Voice TV (eh I don’t know when yet but probably monday night or something)…
