Summer Nights

Where: Sørenga, Oslo

An area by the seaside of Oslo, with lots of bathing space, restaurants and city life. We chose to retreat to the calmer side in the shadows of the dock because the weather was especially hot this day.

I’ve recently been growing more and more fond of my own city. Maybe it’s the summer weather? Anyway I’ve been exploring more places that I don’t usually hang out at. I’ve also been walking around by myself, exploring and enjoying the peaceful seaside of the city. Oslo has been amazing these last few days, I really hope the weather stays like this all summer. A girl can dream, right?

Do I shop my outfits any other places than BikBok? Apparently not, haha.

How has your summer been so far? Is it hot in your country?

OOTD: Sunny Days in Oslo

I’m back! It’s been forever and I’m so so sorry. There’s really no excuse, but the fact that I think I’ve just been uninspired and tired. But summer is finally here and I will use it to my advantage to get up some lovely posts for you guys!

On Friday, me and my sister had a lovely dinner at Olivia Tjuvholmen, which is an Italian restaurant in Oslo. I have very good experiences with the food there and it’s not very expensive, which makes it an easy option on a sunny day!

The weather has been amazing the last few days! Only sunny days and it’s been extremely hot. Too bad I’m stuck inside studying for my exams all day. But, in a week it will all be over and I’ll finally have a well deserved summer vacay!

How’s your week been? Have you had sunny weather as well?

Colorful Walls

Where: a parking lot near Grønland in Oslo, which I discovered the other day is now a building area. Thought I’d use these “old” photos to reminisce about this little grafitti wall with its bright colors.

My Getaway Weekend

Sometimes we just need to hit the pause button on life and enjoy ourselves a little getaway from reality. This weekend I visited one of my best friends who lives and studies in beautiful Trondheim, the city of the wooden houses.

You’ll find Trondheim located almost in the middle of Norway, around 500 km north of the capital, Oslo, where I live. Being one of the most popular student cities in Norway, Trondheim is always full of life and adventure. To capture everything we did on this amazing weekend would be nearly impossible, but I would like to take you along on the walk we had on Saturday, in beautiful and sunny, though very windy weather.

Walking along Nidelva, which runs through Trondheim, you’ll see small and big wooden houses in various colors all along the riverside.

Nidarosdomen(The Nidaros Cathedral), place of the burial of St. Olav, and a unique Middle Age building. The cathedral is so massive you can’t even capture the entire building in one shot.

On the last two photos, Solsiden(the sunny side), best known for its long strip of restaurants and bars, filled with lights and life during Trondheims nightlife.

Such a wonderful and amazing city that I cannot recommend enough. Already looking forward to my next visit!

Exploring the Streets of Oslo

I just love living in the city. The raving city life, all the people buzzing around, the tiny cafes on every street corner and the diversity of people and buildings all in one place. On Sunday, me and my friend Elise, decided to explore. We wanted to take some cool pictures and we knew excactly where we could get them.

We went to Grünerløkka in Oslo. Sundays are always market days at Grünerløkka, which means the streets are full of life and there’s always something to look at. Not to mention, the street art around the area of BLÅ is just amazing. This whole area is so urban and exiting.

This last wall painting is my favorite. I see it everytime I take the tram home from the city. Shows how amazing a childs imagination is in such a sweet way.

This one became a post with more pictures and less words, because sometimes I just feel the pictures tell the entire story for themselves. Quite true that a picture says more than a thousand words.

Today in Pictures

You know those days when you’ve actually got a full schedule and it just feels so good to be both productive and social? Today was one of those days. First I did some revision in school before I met up with my friend, Elise, in the city. We had planned to go for a little shopping trip, and allthough it was actually her that wanted to buy some stuff I kinda ended up splurging a bit myself – no worries, you’ll get a haul! After busting our wallets shopping we had a nice sit down at a cafe and got to catch up a little bit. Later in the evening me and my family went to my uncles new appartment for a real pizza party. We seriously ordered so much pizza and I’m beyond full right now. Not to mention, he had cake.

I brought my camera along today in hopes of maybe doing an outfit shoot, but we lost ourselves completely in the shopping and totally forgot. BUT I have planned a photoshoot with Elise on Sunday and we’ve discussed fun locations and everything, so look forward to that! Even though there weren’t any outfit pictures, I thought I’d share some pictures from my day with you.

I got so excited when I saw that they had put up Christmas lights in the streets. But to my major dissapointment they didn’t light up when it became dark… What even.

All in all, such a lovely day. Keep your eyes peeled – both a haul and an awesome outfit photoshoot coming your way this weekend!
