It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Yes, I know, where have I been? I just realized it’s 10 days since I last posted anything on this blog and I’m so sorry. The last weeks have been very hectic. I had two exams which happened to be on the day after each other and I was panicking trying to get through everything I had to read. I think they went well, though. Other than that, I’ve just had a lot on my mind and I must admit I’ve been feeling a little bit down. But now, with only one exam left to go it’s time to put on the blogging shoes again and tell you about my favorite day that I had last week.

On Saturday, after my two exams were well over with, me and one of my best friends decided we had to treat ourselves to a little celebration, including dinner and a movie. For dinner we went to a thai restaurant in Oslo called YaYa’s. And if you’re ever in Oslo and in the mood for some delicious thai, this is the place! The food is amazing and the restaurant is so creatively decorated with lots of colors and fun furniture. We both had the Chicken Cashew wook, Yayasssssss. For movie we had both been longing to see “Fantastic Beasts and where to find them” in the cinemas. I know there’s split opinions as to the movie, but I absolutely loved it. I loved being back in the wizarding world and the entire movie felt so magical with such a well thought out balance between comedy, romance and darkness. 10/10 recommend from me.

Saturday was also the day they put up all the Christmas lights and trees in the city and in celebration of that they held the most amazing fireworks show! We didn’t know about it beforehand and was taken by surprise when suddenly the entire sky was filled with lights and colors – so beautiful!

On the last picture you can see the gates to the “Christmas street/market” which I am dying to visit, and when I do, there will be a post. Promise!

I had to use pictures of my phone as I didn’t bring my camera into the city, so I hope you can bear with the quality. Other than that I want to announce that I am jumping onto the Blogmas-train, and I really hope I’ll be able to put up a Christmassy post every day through December! I’ve got a lot of ideas – so keep your eyes peeled, lovelies!

  3. As soon as I saw your featured photo my eyes lit up – those lights are so pretty! I’m so sorry to hear you’ve been feeling down 😔 it’s hard to stay upbeat all the time but hopefully when you’re all done with your exams you can do lots of fun, festive things and feel a little better! Thai food is so yummy, I could literally eat it everyday! Just looking at that photo is making me super hungry aha. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is definitely on my cinema list… so far, I’ve only heard good things about it luckily and this post has made me even more excited to see it! It seems like such a cosy film for winter. Your fireworks photos are great – in fact, all of your photos are! I can imagine Oslo to be so, so beautiful this time of the year! And yayyyy so happy you are doing Blogmas too ☺️ another lovely post as always! 💜 xxx

  4. I only recently found out how much I like Thai food, I love sparkly lights (Christmas or no Christmas), great film-I saw it just the other day! What a nice post to read and your pictures are beautiful. I only ever use my phone camera now and even if I did use a fancy camera I still wouldn’t know what I was doing ha! Doesn’t stop me capturing some great moments though!
    Really liked reading this post 🙂

  7. Oh noo, I hate when it’s a presentation! I love my written exams where I can just hide in a corner and do my exam alone, haha! Good luck though, it’s gonna go really well! ✨✨ And yes, so excited for all the Christmas lights and markets! xx
