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!

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.

img_3799

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!

OOTD: Old Chevy Truck

Hello lovelies! Hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday. This weekend has been an absolute rush and I am so glad we got an extra hour of sleep today because we set back the time. From Friday to Saturday me and my mom had a little girls trip to Sweden, always nice to have some quality time with one of the most special persons in my life. When we came back Saturday evening I rushed straight to the city to meet up with some friends and go to a stand-up gig, it was so much fun. Then I went straight from the comedy to a Halloween party in the appartment of one of my uni friends. Since I was in such a rush my costume ended up being the oh so original ‘mouse ears and whiskers’, but hey, at least I could make Mean Girls references all night.

Today is my mothers birthday, so we are going out for dinner in about an hour. I hope she gets the best birthday ever, this wonderful woman who is my number one supporter in everything I do. Anyway, here’s todays birthday dinner outfit, shot in front of my dads old Chevy. Excuse them dusty wheels.

Shirt – CUBUS | Jeans – CARLINGS | Shoes – PAVEMENT | Scarf – H&M | Bag – NELLY

Went for a very simple and comfy outfit, as per usual. This scarf is so comfortable and warm, I probably wear it every day. A must for Fall. Can’t believe it’s the last day of October tomorrow. Time is going by so fast and I am not keeping up, haha. Just ready for Exams to be over and Christmas to arrive.

What are you up to this Sunday?

OOTD: The Perfect Coat

Hello, I hope you are all having a lovely start to the week!

To me, it is a week full of studying. I feel like I have so much work to do and I don’t really know where to start. I have been reading and making notes about ‘Motivation and Emotion’ since about 11 am though, so I feel like I’ve been a little bit productive. Anyways, you probably didn’t click this post to hear me complain about uni. Here is my outfit of the day:

img_3100

| Coat – URBAN | Turtleneck – My mothers closet | Jeans – BIKBOK | Shoes – PAVEMENT | Bag – MICHAEL KORS |

I am wearing my coat from Urban(not Urban Outfitters) which was kind of an impulsive buy from my side last year, and I am so happy I bought it. I got a tip from a friend that they had up to 50% off all their coats, so I just had to have one – what a bargainnn. I have worn it ever since. It is quite thick so you can wear it throughout the winter, but it is also perfect for fall. And I absolutely love the color(is grey a color, haha?)

img_3195

img_3199

My Michael Kors bag is the only designer bag I own. I bought it 3 years ago in New York. I have a really ambivalent relationship with this bag. Some days I love it, some days I’m not so fond of it. I think I grew a bit tired when every other girl in high school wore it too. And I don’t like to look the same as everyone, haha. But I do like this bag. I’m really glad I went for the color that I did, though, it’s such a classic and will never really go out of style. It is also a nice medium sized bag that fits a lot.

For the first time since I got it I am not wearing my Kylie lipstick, haha. I still really wanted to wear it, as it would match everything perfectly, but I decided to be brave and switch things up a bit. Therefore I went for the NYX lingerie in the shade ‘Embellishment’ instead. And yes, my hair is in a bun, don’t we all have those days? Haha.

Now I’m gonna treat myself to a beetroot-burger, say whaat? I think it’s gonna taste really good actually. Hope you are all having a wonderful evening. ♥

Fall Favorites Tag

Hello you lovely bunch, it’s me. Yes, I am still alive. These last few days had just been extremely hectic. I’ve had school + I’ve been working Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Plus, I have also tried to have a life and socialize with my friends. I’m feeling a bit dissapointed in myself for not having posted anything these past days, but I just have not found the time. Also, Fall has come here in Norway, meaning shorter days and it’s getting a lot darker. I’m struggling to find a time of the day where I’m not busy and the sun is still out so that I can take good pictures for you guys.

Anyways, let’s not get all bummed out. Fall is also one of the most beautiful times of the year and even though there’s a lot of dark hours in the day I’m really enjoying all the beautiful colors of the leaves falling to the ground. Dearest Ruth/the10thstreet, who’s blog I absolutely adore, tagged me to do the ‘fall favorites tag’, so I thought I’d let you know some of my fall faves as well as showing some pictures of Fridays outfit.

img_2710

Favorite candle: Oh, I wish I knew the answer to that, but I’m not really much of a candle person yet. I really want to surround myself with cosy candles that smell nice and I also think they give that little extra autumnal feeling to the room, I just have never been the person to buy candles. I will have to do something about that.

Favorite lip product: First of all I always need to have my Body Shop lip conditioner with me at all times. But my absolute fave lip product this Fall is by far my Kylie lip kit in the shade ‘ginger’. It is the product that I am wearing in the pictures(and that I’ve probably worn almost every day). It’s seriously an amazing lipstick+liner.

img_2703

Favorite nail polish: ESSIE – ‘smoking hot’

Favorite clothing item: My grey wollen coat – it’s a lifesaver on cold days and it also makes you look like a real fashionista – will feature an outfit with it in a blog post very soon!

Favorite shoes: I always love some plain ankle boots in Fall.

Favorite accessory: A big scarf and some mittens, preferably in a color that pops, ex red or orange to give some color to my usually very grey/monochrome outfits.

Halloween or Thanksgiving? We don’t celebrate Thanksgiving here in Norway, and Halloween isn’t such a big thing here either. But I’d have to go with Halloween. I’m not crazy about this day of the year, but I do think it’s fun with Halloween makeup looks and costumes.

Favorite drink: A standard hot chocolate, always.

img_2709

Favorite part of Fall: All the amazing colors on the trees and how the air is so fresh and a little bit colder, without it beein freezing outside.
(“Fun” fact though: We had snow yesterday. SNOW. In October. Ya, I’m outta here.)

img_2720

These are the accessories of my Friday outfit. Two simple silver necklaces plus a black, floral choker(which broke few seconds after this picture was taken, such a bummer).

Hope you are all having a wonderful Sunday. One question: I’ve been thinking about making a vlog from my trip to Copenhagen this Summer as I did a lot of filming, would this be any interesting? Let me know, please.

Also, I’m tagging MermaidmoonChild and Mercy to do this Fall favorites tag!

Empire State of Mind

These past days I’ve found myself with such an extreme wanderlust. I just want to leave all my responsibilites behind and go out in the world to explore. Mainly big cities. I’ve always preferred a city vacation rather than lying on the beach in some place that looks excactly like any other charter location, with the same bars and the same people.

In the cities you can find so many aspects that fascinate you. I love different city motives, like interesting architecture, funny people and the raving city life in general. These days it’s excactly 3 years since my family and I went to New York, and oh, am I longing back. It’s such a big city and I feel like I didn’t even explore half of it. It is definitely on the top list of cities I want to go back to.

Sitting here having a walk down memory lane and dreaming of going back I thought I’d share some of my favorite pictures that I took from our trip with you.

//TOP OF THE ROCK/ROCKEFELLER CENTER:

I actually preferred this to the Empire State Building, just because Empire State is so crowded. The view from Empire State Building is a must as well, though.

//BATTERY PARK

img_5985

img_5987

To me, even though I loved New York, the city tends to get a little bit overwhelming and suffocating due to the high buildings and the city air. Therefore it was really nice to enjoy the fresh sea air at the dock of Battery Park.

The High Line is basically a park built on an elevated section of an disused railroad in New York. This was one of my favorite walks that we had. I love how concrete and bricks were mixed with green leaves and flowers.

Hope you enjoyed this little artsy photo post. If yo couldn’t tell, I love trying to capture the life in abig city in a picture.

What are your favorite cities that you want to travel back to the most?
