Holiday in Haiti

17.04.2017, kl.22:15 × 1 Comment

Hallo fra Haiti!

Nok en gang er jeg på besøk i et av mine favoritt land, Haiti. Dette er faktisk den femte gangen jeg er her, og jeg elsker det bare mer og mer for hver gang. Til de som lurer, så er jeg på besøk hos vennene mine fra Paris. Noen av mine beste venner fra studiene mine der er fra Haiti, og nå som de har flyttet hjem prøver jeg å se og besøke de så ofte som mulig. 

Jeg kom hit fra Miami fredag morgen og da dro vi rett til Beach huset. Helgen tilbrakte vi like mye til vanns som til lands.

Hei hei. Tiden flyr når man koser seg, og om vi koste oss i LA. Her har dere er lite bildedryss med noen snaps jeg tok mens vi var der, ble ikke så mye tid til bilder, men fikk mast meg til at Eline tok noen (mission impossible). Vennene våres som vi bodde hos bor midt i Beverly Hills, så alt av butikker og restauranter var i gåavstand, noe som var super praktisk. Dagene gikk for det meste til å besøke digge restauranter, dra ut og litt shopping, vi var alltid en stor gjeng som gjorde alt sammen så var super hygg.

Snaps from the day

28.03.2017, kl.18:30 × 2comments

I dag begynte endelig min spring break, woho! ​Etter skolen dro jeg for å møte min super søte venn Fahad, vi spiste frokost og koste oss i solen, før jeg måtte hjem å pakke. Hadde prøve i Business Law i dag tidlig, så ble ikke mye pakking i går kveld... Jeg rakk heldigvis å få med meg det meste (tror jeg), før jeg måtte forte meg til flyplassen. Nå sitter jeg på flyet hjem til Oslo, men der blir jeg i under 12 timer før det bærer videre. Men først skal jeg hjem å plage min little sis.

Sunny weekend

27.03.2017, kl.14:16 × 1 Comment

Endelig er våren kommet til London også. Jeg er blitt så bortskjemt med flott vær og skinnende sol av å bo i Miami i to år, så det å flytte til London var litt av en turn around. Men etter en litt treg vinter med mye regn ser det ut til at våren er kommet til London, Thank God! Både lørdag og søndag ble brukt på å nyte det fine været mest mulig. Var en relativt lat helg for meg, gikk tur rundt i byen, møtte venner for lunsj og shoppet litt begge dagene. Alt i alt veldig hyggelig.

Lunch @ Harrods

23.03.2017, kl.16:22 × 8comments

OMG long time no see, kan ikke huske sist gang jeg blogget... Nå som jeg har flyttet til London tenkte jeg det kunne vært gøy å komme i gang igjen, så da setter jeg i gang på nytt. Merker jeg er litt ute av blogg-modus etter den ble lagt på hyllen for et par år siden, så dette kan bli spennende. Dere må gjerne kommentere hvilke type innlegg dere ønsker, men tenker det blir veldig likt som før; hverdag, mote, sminke reiser, etc. You know, the important things in life. 

I dag var jeg ferdig tidlig på skolen, så da dro jeg og en venninne på Harrods. Om dere er I London og solen tilfeldigvis skulle skinne, anbefaler jeg dere å ta dere turen opp til 4etg på The Observatory. Super koselig liten terrasse de har der oppe, perfekt for lunsj og te.

The weekend

19.10.2015, kl.22:06 × 1 Comment

Håper alle hadde en flott helg med det nødvendige av morsomheter og avslapning for å føle seg klare til ny uke. Jeg har hatt en haug med lekser den siste uken, så ble en nokså rolig helg på meg. Fredag gikk til kinokveld med Eline. Hadde planlagt å se Sicario, men sene og trege som vi alltid er var vi på plass i salen 30 min for sent. Så da ble det Bridge of Spies i stede, den var overaskende bra, så anbefaler den når den kommer ut i Norge. Lørdag dro jeg på poolparty til min gode venn Caro. Vi hadde tenkt oss på båten hennes og var en stor gjeng, men dessverre dukket ikke kapteinen som var leid inn, så da ble det poolparty. Nå er det ny uke og masse som skal gjøres. Skal være flink til å blogge denne uken, så stay tuned. For mer updates kan dere følge meg på snapchat LEAREIFF

Hope everyone had a great weekend! After having loads of homework I had a somewhat calm one. Movie night on Friday, and a poolparty at my friend Caro's house on Saturday.

I'm finally back home in Miami, and it feels so good. Eline and I got here on Friday, since then we have been running around getting the apartment in shape, catching up with friends and getting back on track with everything that needs to be done.

Cannes

18.08.2015, kl.20:36 × 1 Comment

If I had to choose my favorite vacation ever, this years trip to Cannes would probably take the win.

If you follow me on Snapchat  Leareiff* or on Instagram you might have picked up that I had an amazing holiday. Me and my two BFF's, Eline and Mari packed our bags and spent 9 amazing days by the French Riviera, half way through the trip, we where also joined by Elines cousin Thilde. The amount of laughs we shared must be equivalent to a stomach workout of 1000 situps a day, I feel as if I came home with a six-pack.

It's a bit hard to squeeze our days there into a post that would be organized and feature day by day. I had the intention of taking loads of pictures for the blog, but carried away with all of our fun, the camera got left behind(this always happens to me). But we did take a lot of photos with our phones to document this and that, so I will try to give you guys a recap and glimpse into our trip.

 

Most of our days where spent soaking up the sun at Bâoli beach on the Crossete. We tried some other beach clubs but this was by far my favorite. Their location on the beach is perfect, the food and snacks are good and it has great ambiance. We started most of the days with lunch there, then headed down to the beach.






Besides staying on the beach during the day in Cannes, we also visited Mala beach. A super nice and a bit secluded beach about 50 min drive from Cannes. There we met up with some of my friends from my time in Paris. We had a great lunch then headed to their boat for some swimming, tanning and waterskiing. I was so thrilled when I got to waterski again, it's been for ever since last time. From there we went to their house in Monaco and had dinner in Monte Carlo followed by going out.













Our days mostly consisted of going to lunch, the beach, dinner and then out. When it came to dinner we tried a few random places by our selves and went to some dinners with our friends. If you are looking for a great place to dine and drink before you head to the club, I would recommend L'ecrin and Bâoli. The both of them are right next to another, but L'ecrin is situated by the water and has a more lounge vibe, while Bâoli plays good music throughout you dinner and then turns into a club.

We went out almost every night. Accept from our night out in Monaco we either went to Gotha or Bâoli. Gotha is huge, but it was always a good time. We where there when Axwell and when Buster Rhimes played, which was a great deal of fun. Bâoli was our go to place and I have so many good memories there.

I'm back!

10.08.2015, kl.14:24 × 0 Comments

If you know me, you know I have claimed that quite a few times... 

The past years I have been a binge blogger, writing a few words and posting some fun photos, always with the intention of blogging full time again. But that's never been the case. Living in Paris and Miami, traveling around, and frequently going back to Norway I have been a bit to busy too sit down and blog about it.

For those of you who have been wondering what I have been doing with my time, I'll give you a short recap. After a year in paris,  I randomly moved to Miami, Why? It's summer all day everyday, being from Norway that is enough reason to move. Then I tried being an adult for a short time and bought myself an apartment (being and adult was boring). That's pretty much where the adult actions and responsible decision making comes to an end. I decided to make it a year of fun,  My best friend, Eline came to Miami and moved in, and ever since no day has been dull. 

This summer I've been in Norway spending time with friends and family, I went on a little girls trip to Cannes (You'll hear more about that in the next post). Now the vacay is coming to an end, and in about a week we head back to Miami.

Yet another day in Greece

11.06.2014, kl.17:18 × 1 Comment

Today has been pretty much like all the other days here in Greece; very peaceful and relaxing. But I decided to have a bit of fun on the beach, so I dragged my bother out on a boat with me so I could water ski. I used to do it all the time a couple years back and I just love it. Jumping over the waves and the water splash in your face is such a lovely fun feeling.

I'm having such a lovely and relaxing time here in Greece. I work my days around what time I want to eat and tan, and that is just it. I feel like my inner Nemo is coming out, and I'm having a blast snorkeling in the water. Later today I think I might take up and old hobby of mine, water-skiing. Miss it so much, so I really want to do that while I'm here!

Earlybird in Greece

Woke up super early this morning (9... sorry I'm in Vacation mode). Starred my day off at the gym and then headed to the breakfast. I guess my time on the treadmill was a bit of a waste after I satisfied my self with Nutella crepes, oh well. After sometime on the beach the clouds came so now I'm headed to the spa for some treatments.

I'm so in vacation mode, its like eat, sleep drink and just adding tan and swim. After a couple hours on the beach I was ready for dinner. The hotel had several different restaurants, but we decided to go with the buffet today. And let me tell you, I think I ate my weight in deserts and carbs. Gym time tomorrow morning!

This week my brother and I where talking about taking a trip to Greece together. Since I'm moving to Miami and going to spend a lot of time in the states, I wanted a last European vacation before I leave the continent and head across the pond. So this morning we jumped on a plane headed to Corfu in Greece. It's only been a couple hours since we arrived, but I'm loving it so far. We decided to stay at a 5 star resort so we could just relax and spend a lot of time at the hotel. The coming days I plan to spend focusing on my vitamin D intake (aka, getting a nice tan), working out and going to the spa.

Found this dress and hat, while I found myself on a accidental shopping spree today... Woppseee. I'm completely in love with the combination, I find it so casual cool. Thought I might do a haul-video later today. Crossed my mind I haven't done one in a super duper long time, so why not...?

Had the most fab day with my girls today. Spent the day tanning, eating, drinking and enjoying the nice weather here in Norway. Nice and sunny weather in Norway is a rare thing. So I am quite happy that Norway blessed me with nice weather this week before I head off to Miami.

Girls trip to Sørlandet

This week Eline, Mari and I have gone to the south of Norway, to relax at Eline's beach house. We had a little road trip driving down yesterday. It's funny, having been away from Norway for a year I now find it even more beautiful and really appreciate the beauty that surrounds me. Later on I´m gonna go for a swim after a nice seafood lunch. Stay tuned.




Loui enjoying the great weather.

So for those of you who didn't already know, this summer I'm moving to Miami. It is so much to be excited about, but right now, the only thing I can think about is how much I'm looking forward to decorating my apartment. To makes the days go faster I spend countless hours on Pintrest and sites such as One Kings Lane, to find ideas and inspiration. I all ready have a pretty good idea of how I want it to look. Here are some of my inspiration photos.

Paris Q&A answers

18.05.2014, kl.23:56 × 0 Comments

Loooong overdue I have decided to answer all of the questions from the Q&A about Paris. But now that I have finished a year in Paris, I can fully answer them all. They are mostly in Norwegian, so I'll reply in Norwegian as well. 

Hva studerer du og er det vanskelig? Vil du si at man er nødt til å være veldig god i engelsk for å klare det? Hvor vokste du opp og kan du fortelle litt om familien din?:)

beundrer deg!: Jeg studerte International business administartion. Noe som var vanskeligere en jeg hadde trodd, spesielt økonomi fagene, men det er fult mulig å gjøre det bra. Du må legge all fokus på fagene, så om engelsken din er svak, kan det bli vanskelig. Når det kommer til familien min er det ikke så mye å si, de var veldig greie å støttet meg i å studere i utlandet, men jeg savnet inderlig søsknene mine!

Har du lært deg noe fransk? Eventuelt kunne du noe fra før? Nei og nei, jeg gikk på Amerikansk skole og snakket engelsk med alle vennene mine.

Jeg ser at du shopper en del, og spiser ute på dyre restauranter og kafeer, hvordan har du råd til det? Jeg hadde et budsjett som de aller aller fleste har, så er det bare hvordan man prioriterer pengene sine ut ifra hvor mye man har å rutte med. Jeg spiste en del ute, men vil ikke si jeg shoppet veldig mye. 

Hva er snittet for å komme inn på AUP? var det vanskelig og finne leilighet? hva går studiet ditt ut på? har du spart opp mye, eller lever du av studielånet? Snittet for å komme inn er 4, men om du sliter med å oppnå det på VGS blir det vanskelig når du begynner på AUP. AUP hjelper deg meg leilighet om du ber om det. Når det kommer til penger hadde jeg litt sparepenger i tillegg til at jeg fikk en del hjelp hjemmefra. Også får man jo fra lånekassen. 

Får norske jenter mye oppmerksomhet i Paris? Blonde jenter litt ekstra kanskje, men vil ikke si jeg følte meg spesielt spesiell fordi jeg var Norsk. Alle vennene mine kom fra forskjellige land så alle var utenlandske. 

Har du noen bra uteplasser å anbefale som du liker og synes er bra i paris? hva har man på seg ute på byen i paris i forhold til Norge? Av utesteder vil jeg anbefale 79, La Villa, Matignon og Titty Twister. Jeg gikk alltid med kjole eller pyntet topp, og man MÅ gå i heler, ellers kommer du ikke inn. 

Hvordan er utelivet og guttene i Paris i forhold til i Oslo? Det kan ikke sammenlignes en gang. Når det gjelder utelivet er det ikke særlig bra om du ikke har bord, men om du har det er det veldig gøy. Man danser ikke på noe dansegulv, men du er på bordet ditt. Alle guttene jeg ble kjent med og var med er oppdratt til å være mye mer gentleman enn det guttene er her hjemme i Norge. 

Hvordan valgte du Paris i stedet for USA? Hvilke alternativer stod det mellom i USA? Jeg hadde lyst til å være i Europa, pluss veldig mange av de norske som drar til USA ender opp bare å henge med Norske, det ville jeg ikke. Jeg hadde ikke noe konkret alternativ i USA.

Hvor liker du deg best i USA? Jeg vurderer nemlig å ta et år i USA og studere, men har aldri vært der før. Kan du være så snill og bare skrive litt om de forskjellige delstatene? Jeg prøver å tenke praktisk og ikke leve i ?fjortis?-boblen om å bo akkurat der det høres mest fantastisk ut, skjønner du hva jeg mener? F.eks. har jeg hørt at det er veldig vanskelig å komme seg rundt i LA uten å ha egen bil. I tillegg kunne jeg tenke meg å bo på østkysten fordi det er kortere til Norge. Hva synes du om byene i Florida, hvilke er best for en ung student? Hva med Miami? I de aller fleste byen i USA må du ha bil, uten om NYC. Jeg skal selv flytte til Miami, det er en fantastisk by. Og ikke så veldig stereotype Amerikansk. 

Hva er slektsforholdet ditt som gjør at du er halvt amerikansk? Faren min er derifra. 

Hva er forskjellen på franskmenn og amerikanske menn? De kommer fra helt forskjellige kulturer, så en hel del.

Playdate @ Versailles

15.05.2014, kl.00:46 × 6comments

So on tuesday Alex and I made it a point to visit the castle of Versailles. I am after all leaving Paris on Friday, and having spent a year in the city, without visiting the land mark would be a bit of a shame. The both of us thought it would be a a hit&run, in and out just looking the the most known things. In contrary we found ourselves playing in the gardens and rowing the boats in the lake for quite some time, and jittering and laughing away. Time flew by and even before we had entered the castle we had been there for hours. I highly recommend you all to put aside a day to spend in this beautiful place, the ambiance of the whole estate is just magnificent. After all, Alex and I both loved it!

Sunday walks in Paris

11.05.2014, kl.20:44 × 2comments

Last night was my last night clubbing in Paris (so bitter sweet). Today I woke up with a itch to get out and rome the city for one last sunday walk and just absorb its feel. 

3 minutes into our walk along the Seine it started PORING down, like there was no tomorrow. Luckily Alex brought her umbrella, and after I got to play around with my inner Mary Poppins.

After lunch the weather and the mood shifted completely, and Paris showed itself from it's most beautiful side, with not only one but two rainbows and sun shining.

Madrid post part 2

09.05.2014, kl.17:46 × 4comments

Like always I'm a bit late posting but here you have the second post from madrid. The trip was such a nice distraction from what we had waiting for us back in Paris, exam prep... The last day we didn't do much, we went to the park, shopping and to an amazing brunch. At night we went to a super cool bar called Ramses. I would highly recommend you go there on a sunday afternon. It's the perfect place to cure a hangover with even more drinks and tapas.

A day at the tennis

05.05.2014, kl.17:30 × 1 Comment

So our original purpose of taking this trip was to attend the tennis tournament my friend Beatrize's friend was sponsoring with his (super cool) sunglass company Mr. Boho. It was such a good day, with great friends, weather and watching the games. Even though we where hanging a bit after the night before, that ended a 6 am, we managed to have a amazing time. When we got back to the hotel on the other hand, we all nearly passed out, sooo tired.

Off to Madrid

02.05.2014, kl.23:14 × 5comments

At this moment I'm at the airport headed to Madrid with my girls. (I was when i wrote this post earlier). Paris will have to do with out me this weekend, while we take over the Spanish capital. The purpose of the trip is to attend a tennis match + soak up some sun and alcohol (of course, the little alcoholics that we are) . Last time I went to Madrid with Alex and her brother we had so much fun, so the city has a lot to live up to this time. I'm sure that with all my amazing friends it will be a blast.

My bestie Alex getting ready for departure. Funny story, she was in charge of booking tickets and planing our trip to the airport. First she managed to spell my email incorrect, so I never received my confirmation code. After mixing up and forgetting our flights departure time, it turned out she had also booked my ticket under the wrong name (...). Mental note to text trip, don't leave Alex in charge. Haha! 

You can get her pretty bag HERE


Two excited girls off to the airport.

I have had such a nice and relaxing Easter break in Paris. But now it's time to go back to school mode and put in an extra effort the last month. It's so surreal to think that I don't even have four weeks left in AUP. To those who where wondering, yes I'm leaving Paris. But I'll say more about that in another post. Anyways, this weekend my friends from Norway have come to visit, I'm so excited to show them around Paris and take them to all my fave places.
