Personal Style 

As much as we all love to dress up from head to toe – high heels, curly hair, lashes,  a full face of makeup – there is something so special about jumping into the clothes that are just YOU. I’ve been thinking a lot about personal style and allthough I am a person that loves to wear all different kinds of styles there’s always a style that just represents the plain and natural me.

In this post I’ve tried to put together an outfit that represents my personal style. This is me, all chill, no make up, and my hair tied in a messy bun, because why not? The photos are shot on the most beautiful location that I know, near the sea at our cabin in the south of Norway. I’ve been spending my summers at this place since the age of one and there’s something so special about coming back every year to this place that no matter what, will always stay the same.

Outfit Details:
Body – BikBok | Jeans – Levi’s | Watch – Daniel Wellington | Shoes – Converse(slightly bitten off at the heel thanks to my very kind dog)

What do you feel represents your personal style? And do you have a place that always feels like home to you?

Tomorrow I travel to Nice, France, and I am super excited! Make sure to follow all my social media linked below if you want to keep up with my trip and get some outfit sneak peeks!

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!

My outfit:
Jacket – Gina Tricot | Top – Brandy Melville | Skirt – H&M | Shoes – Converse

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?

Christmas Recap

Hello everyone! How has your Holidays been? My four days off of work were definitely very relaxing and I managed to re-gain a lot of lost energy. Since I’ve been a bit MIA during the Christmas times, due to work and being with family and friends, I thought I’d bring you a little Christmas recap to let you guys tag along to what I’ve been up to the days up to and after Christmas, so let’s go! PS: There’s going to be a lot of iPhone photos, so bare with me on the quality this time!

December 20th

Remember I talked about the Christmas market? I finally got to visit it together with my friend, Ida. We decided to have a full on wintery and Christmassy day and started it all off with some fun at the skating rink.

Up next, lots of Christmas goodies. I went for churros with cinnamon and sugar and Ida went for a Belgian waffle with chocolate. For drinks I got a cup of hot Chocolate(with cream!!) and Ida had Gløgg(Norwegian version of Mulled Wine).

Then of course, even though we’re both super scared of heights, we had to go on the Ferris wheel. Worst and best decision of the day. It was all idyllic and fun until we reached the top and the wheel stopped cause they were letting mote people on. We seriously froze in fear, it was so high up!!! The view was so and so as it was a very foggy day, but we could indeed see how high up we were!

Spent the morning decorating the tree and the entire house for Christmas, as is the Christmas tradition in most Norwegian homes. I enjoyed this s much, really brings me back to being a kid and being all excited for Christmas. I actually think I enjoy it even more now really, haha!

This is my self-made Christmas sweater, I’m cool like that.

December 24th

The big day. In Norway we celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve, meaning presents, food and dressing up all on this special evening.

My gorgeous glittery dress that I wore. Love the open back!

The evening was amazing and I just want to relive it over and over again. I didn’t take any photos of the meal that day, but I’ll show you a reconstruction(as I of course had leftovers the next day), to let you in on what we eat on Christmas Eve in Norway!

Dinner is either pork, lamb or fish mostly, depending on where in the country you’re from. In my family we eat pork. The main dish being ribs and then next to it, sausages and meatballs(they’re not really meatballs, just couldn’t find a better English word), potatoes, of course, and then two types of sauerkraut and mustard.

For dessert: rice cream/risalamande/riskrem with raspberry sauce! This is literally the best thing in the world. Get at it if you ever have the chance.

December 25th

The next day was spent in my PJ’s and slippers digging into all the leftovers and wathcing Vampire Diaries. It was not a productive day AT ALL. Exactly how Christmas Day is supposed to be!

The last days have been more back to normal. And back to work, ugh. Been really spoilt with my dad making us so many amazing dishes for dinner, including his soon to be world famous pizza. Just look at this piece of art:

One word: HEAVEN.

Hope you enjoyed this little recap. I probably won’t be seing you until next year now, so I hope you all have a very lovely day tomorrow, stay safe and have a HAPPY NEW YEAR!

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!

Remember to check out my Instagram, I would love to see your accounts as well!

10 Fun Facts About Me

I got tagged by the lovely brynncamilla to write 10 facts about me. You should all go check out her facts as well, they’re really fun to read. As I’ve been thinking a lot about making some sort of ‘get to know me’ post, I thought this could be a good start. Here we go:

I. I’m around 5’7, or 172 cm.

I always think it’s a bit fun to hear bloggers actual heigth, because you can never really tell from a picture sometimes.

II. I once sailed with a ship to Shetland.

This was with my folk high school(the school I attended the year after I finished high school). We sailed from Bergen, Norway to the Shetland Islands of Scotland with a huge three-masted sailing vessel, and we were working as a crew on the ship. What an experience.

This leads me to the next fact:

III. I’m freaking scared of heights.

I’m the kind of person that never takes any roller coasters, nor climbs big mountains because whenever I get to high up I can feel my entire body going into a unison NOPE. But this folk high school year was a year for me to really challenge myself and one of the things that I thought of during the entire sailing trip was to climb up to the highest plateau of the mast, which was about 30 meters I think. And you know what? I did it. It was freaking scary and one of my best friends had to climb behind me the entire way, but the feeling I got when I was on top – felt like I had conquered the world, haha.

And the people were walking beneath me like tiny ants.

IV. My family has 5 animals.

As you already may know, I have a dog. But we also have 2 bunnies and 2 horses. I love animals. I have always been surrounded by a lot of animals and can’t really imagine a life without them.

V. I have extremely good memory.

Ok, don’t get freaked out, but I’m the kind of person who will always remember a persons name, or their birthday or what someone told me 2 years ago. I’m also really good at learning lyrics/poems etc by heart. I get so creeped out by my own memory sometimes that I pretend I don’t remember to not seem like a stalker, haha. When it comes to remember doing stuff, like cleaning or doing my homework I’m terrible though.

VI. I can speak 3 languages(or 5 if you will).

First one is of course Norwegian, my first language. All Norwegians also have to learn English in school from about the age of 6, and I would be as brave as to say that I’m close to being as fluent in English as I am in Norwegian. At least, I feel like you guys understand what I write, haha. Schools in Norway also demand that you learn a third language for 3-5 years, and I chose German. I actually learnt German for 6 years in school as I also took a ‘German in-depth’ class my last year of high school. I’m terrified of speaking German though, as there’s so much grammar to remember. And at last, I do understand both spoken and written Swedish and Danish as they are so similar to my own language, and if my life depended on it I could probably speak some phrases on these languages as well.

VII. I might have a slight touch of Misophonia.

Misophonia- ‘selective sound sensitivity syndrome’ is basically when you get annoyed by sounds like the noise of someone eating or coughing etc. These are my biggest pet peeves and I’m so sorry because you can’t actually get mad at someone for ex. sneezing, but sometimes I do.

VIII. I once got kicked in the face by a horse.

Maybe not a fun fact, I guess. Long story short, one of my horses got scared and I was in the wrong place at the wrong time and got hit mostly in my stomach/hip but also in my face. I must have the best guardian angels ever because I got away with no internal injuries, just a lot of bruises. I got a trip in an ambulance though. I’m the kind of person that never gets in any accidents, so fingers crossed this was the first and also the last.

IX. I’m a nerd.

Who would have guessed? Ok, you’ve probably already figured. I’m such a nerd and I love it. I read the first Harry Potter book at the age of 7 and I love Harry Potter, reading, writing, learning new facts. I also never had that much against school. It has come a little bit with the years though.

X. I’m a procrastinator.

If it’s procrastinatable, I procrastinate. And I have procrastinated writing my psychology essay since this morning, soo, kinda have to do that now.

Hope this post wasn’t too much me-talk and that you found at least some of these facts a bit fun!
