THE YEAR THAT WAS


These photos are from a summer trip to a nearby town we took when Dag was five weeks old. It was pretty much the only really hot day of summer last year.  It never made it into a post then though. Feels like forever ago... but then again I wonder how the hell it can be such a long time since that day already, and summer in general. Which only can mean it should be summer again in no time!



Before life goes all back to normal here again after the festivities, days off, munching, gift unwrapping and learning to write a number three at the end of dates instead of two I thought we'd throw in my annual best of-blog post giveaway!

So, what was your favorite post here of 2012?
Link it to me in the comments! You can of course also say why you liked it best.

The winner will receive a small surprise gift (which as usual is also a surprise to me at this point as I haven't come up with the price yet) and will be drawn randomly a week form now; on Thursday the 10th.

The competition is open to everyone, anywhere. But if you're not a follower at all and just pick out the first post here on the main page in order to win just whatever or promote you handbags or women's wholesale clothing or what you folks usually try to sneakily advertise miss Fortuna might have another round, just sayin'. Make sure you are reachable to me trough your comment. I say this every time and there's always someone with a hidden profile or anonymous comment... but then again, your loss in that case, someone else's lucky day :)

I really loved all your pregnancy posts - you did an amazing job on looking absolutely gorgeous the whole time! It would be hard to pick the best of all these lovely looks, so here go the stripes (stripes are always a good thing, right?):

I remember really enjoying your "A few minutes in the sunshine!" post and showing it to my boyfriend. He then asked me, "you really want to be a momma, don´t you?" and I answered: "only if you take such nice photos of me and the baby". Sadly we have just moved to Germany, so the nugget will have to wait at least a couple of years till we have everything settled down.
Happy new year, lady!

I loved the ideas behind the post where you demonstrated how wearing a scarf and a beret in slightly different ways created different looks. Genius!

The first thought, which came to me than you said:"your favorite post of 2012" I remembered "SKELETONS" post with Frida's spirit. I was revising your 2012 posts. And I chose this one:

Here you look such a perfect couple (even if it's not the reality). Ulrika, you look gorgeous as a mother :]. I wish you all the best in your life ♥

I'm quite new here, so I probably haven't even read all of them yet. But I remember the first post I read when I found your blog, it was this one: http://freelancersfashion.blogspot.fi/2012/12/four-things-right-now-sunday-evening.html
And with that, I was definately caught, so I have to say that one then! I also love all your hair tutorials! :) Have a great weekend!

I read mostly for your wonderful outfits and posts about burlesque and am torn between the Mansfield dress post: http://freelancersfashion.blogspot.fi/2012/12/the-mansfield-dress.html# because it just seems wonderful in every way [burgundy, 3/4 sleeves, v-neck, heavy knit, etc] and the Oldtimer Knit post: http://freelancersfashion.blogspot.fi/2012/12/the-oldtimer-knit-burgundy-and-grey.html which I think has to win because I'm obsessed with burgundy and charcoal gray.

I've loved watching your country home come together, just as I loved watching the Helsinki flat renovations. I really loved this tour of the flat:http://freelancersfashion.blogspot.ca/2011/08/two-other-rooms.html
