Da var det igjen blitt mandag, og med det, ny uke. Skal helt ærlig innrømme at jeg ikke helt holder styring på dagene i sommerferien, kunne like så godt vært mandag som fredag for min del. Meeen, med det sagt så prøver jeg faktisk å gjør en ekstra liten innsats på mandager, spesielt når det gjelder trening. Føler jeg er generelt flinkere til både å trene, og spise sunt hele uken, hvis jeg først begynner med det.

Så med det sagt var nr.1 på dagens agenda å komme seg på Barry's Bootcamp. Elsker elsker elsker (og hater litt), Barrys. Ble helt hekta på å trene der i London, så i sommer har jeg fortsatt med det her hjemme, og gjør det ca 4 ganger i uken. Er helt super og ekstrem effektiv trening, merker stor forskjell på kroppen etter jeg har begynt med det. Anyways, nå bærer dagen videre til Victoria hvor sushikveld venter. 

Håper dere alle har hatt en fin mandag! Del gjerne deres tips til å få en fin start på uken. 



 

 




Mer fra LA

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.

Hello from LA

Greetings fra LA! Endelig er jeg reunited med min BFF Eline igjen, vi landet begge i LA i går, og siden det har tiden flydd. Dagen i dag gikk til lunsj på Il Pastaio i Beverly Hills og drinks på 60 Beverly Rooftopen.

Snaps from the day

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.

Lunch @ Harrods

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

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 back!

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.



 




Boat life

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.




Home decor

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. 








A blast from the past

So a little to late but here it is, my last Miami post. I all ready miss it so much; it must have been one of my favorite vacations of all time. The weather, the people everything! The last days where so good, our final night ended up being spent all at the club story and then straight off to the airport. Not the most pleasant flight, but so worth it though! Looking back at all the photos makes it so bitter sweet. But one thing is for sure. I'm going back in not long. 










Sunday fun day

Hello sweethearts,

Still having a blast in Miami. After a couple nights of high alcohol consumption we decided to have a chill day and just take it easy. We stared off by just chilling by the pool, followed by lunch and shopping in the groove. Later we drove over to Wynwood which is an area with graffiti on all the buildings, really cool. We ended the day by going to dinner in Midtown in a restaurant called Gigis, the food was to die for! Unfortunately my camera had ran out of battery by that time.










Miami

 

Spring break continues... Finally reunited with my Love, Alex, nothing beats Miami with her! Got here on Friday and so far we have mostly been eating, drinking and enjoying the sun. heheheh... Very productive! A bunch of our good friends from Paris are also here, so it's like a little Paris reunion when we go out. So much fun. 


Trying to do the impossible... Have had so many laughs with this funny one. The fact that it took her 30 minutes to fill up gas is just indescribable.... Our life is a joke. 




London calling

The great thing about Paris is that London is just a train ride away. Take a little nap and 2 hours later you are in London. This weekend the girls and I decided we needed a fun party weekend outside Paris, so we jumped on eurostar, and swosh we where in England. 

The first night, we met up with all of Farah and Tamam?s friends from Saudi. I always joke about how much I love Saudi people, but I genuinely think they are the nicest people I have ever met, love them! Dinner was set at Farah?s favorite, Sumosan, before we headed over to District, to see Kid Ink.

The Parisian weekend

Hi cupcakes, 

Who else is having the Monday blues? This weekend was so nice, I just didn't feel like starting all over again. But you know, you kind of have to... Taking Victoria under my wing and taking her all over Paris to get a typical weekend, we got a lot done. 





Jacket (last season), Sweater (last season), Skirt (in stores now) - Zara, booties - BCBG, bag - Chanel

Started off by taking her to Trocadero for lunch and some tower pics. They are more or less unenviable for a tourist... I feel like I have passes my fair share, but Vic needed some. 



Both Friday and Saturday was spent in good company. All the girls and guys got together and went to La Villa. Had such a blast, with Old and new friends.  



 

Sunday the ultimate hangover day was spent at brunch near home. Pasta, pizza and dessert was on the menu. By the time we finished the rain was poring down and we just headed straight back to bed. 




Victoria comes to Paris

Today my weekend got even better than it normally is in Paris. My best friend from Norway, Victoria came to visit me. So this weekend I will be taking on the job as tour guide and entertainer. In return I ordered her to take pictures for the blog. Haha. She has no choice. She joined me to class, which was so fun. She could finally see everything I had been talking about in APU. Afterwards we headed to the St Germain to take a stroll and eat some macaroons at Ladurée.   Now we are getting ready for a night out. Have a lovely Friday guys, it is after all my second favourite F-word






















Looking back at 2013 and into 2014

I would like to start this post by writing how proud I am of myself and my achievements in 2013. I see so many people be hard on themself, set to high standards for them self and with every year, forget the good they have done, and choose to focus on improving them self in the New Year. Yes, there is always room for improvement, but do not forget to look back, and give yourself a pat on the shoulder. And do not forget; only compete with yourself, improve your self and do better than you have already done. Comparing yourself with others is always a fail. 2013 was a year I took so many leaps, did so many new things and took a huge step into the adult world (even though I still feel like 90% of me is still a child). I moved to another country, I started living on my own and I began college. Yey me! I have made incredible friends, and I feel as if I have grown into a wiser and better person. Not to bad in just one year. In 2014, , I want to continue the growth I have shown in 2013. I wish to travel even more, learn about new cultures, do even better in school, and improve my French. I hope to learn how to be a tad more structured and wise with my time, this will be the year I go from efficient to super efficient. Last but not least, I want to have even more fun, laugh more and enjoy every minute of every day. I wish each and every one of you a fantastic new year. I hope you all achieve your goals, live your dreams and find happiness. This year has though me that life is precious its not a given but a gift. So enjoy it, love it and live it! Lots of love! banner_about_aup_1 bilde-13-800x800 Desktop53-800x600 IMG_3018-800x800 IMG_3266-800x936 IMG_3422-800x800 IMG_4092-800x800 IMG_0386-800x533 IMG_2857-800x800 IMG_0211-800x1200 IMG_0140-800x533 IMG_3617-800x800 IMG_3421-800x800 5d9c8262a13211e2a2f822000a9e0707_7 Desktop99-800x577 Desktop105-800x600 Desktop107-800x600 IMG_0045-800x800 IMG_1864-800x1200 DSC06723-800x533 IMG_0118 IMG_0114 DSC01965-800x1203 DSC02008-800x1210 DSC01919-800x531 Desktop144IMG_0155DSCN0004111IMG_0119DSCN0058IMG_0037bilde (18) IMG_2958Desktop143IMG_2799IMG_5053IMG_2711IMG_0365   IMG_7268IMG_0350IMG_0661IMG_5747DSCN9983IMG_5781IMG_6813IMG_6096 Desktop156 IMG_7251 IMG_7887 IMG_7946 IMG_0044 DSCN0111Wow, I have to say; a lot really did happen in 2013




Last day in Paris

I truly can't believe it's Christmas already. Time goes by so quickly, I'm already done with my first semester in college. Yesterday I had my last day in my magnificent city. It started off with a goodbye meal for two of the things I hold close to my heart, my bestie Beatrize (obesely), and our shared love, L'avenue. We enjoyed pancakes, hot chocolate and each others company before she left back to Spain.   IMG_8730DSCN0084DSCN0083DSCN0086DSCN0089DSCN0100Then I headed off with Farah. I was supposed to do some Christmas shopping in Hermes, but they where sold out off the item I was looking for (bummer). We had lunch, walked around and finally had to part as well. The taught of not seeing her for a month while she is in Saudi and Dubai and me in Norway makes me so sad.DSCN0106DSCN0107DSCN0111




2 down, 2 to go

Exam-week has officially begun. I've been "lucky" enough to have my exams all in just two days. So today I woke with the attitude, yes we can, skipped over to Starbucks for my mandatory coffee and started with English (this was the first day in almost a month I had to get up before 8). I thought I needed some self pampering in the two hour break I had before marketing, so I skipped over to the hairdresser, for a cut and a volumes blow dry, let me tell you the head massage was much needed! Then it was time for the well anticipated marketing exam. And if I hadn't justified my hard work all ready, I went to my self proclaimed after-exam lunch, at L'avenue. The greatest friends, supporters and listeners met me there, Farah and Bea. So bravo to me, I finished half of my exams for my first semester in uni, I'm definitely a big girl now! IMG_8684IMG_8685




Over the weekend

Time flies by sooo fast, I can't believe it. This was my last weekend in Paris before I go home for Christmas break. Already a semester in college done with, it feels like yesterday I had fist day jitters. Next week will be occupied with finals everyday, and on Friday I get to go home to Norway and the fam then spend the holidays with them.  IMG_8525 IMG_8533What is Christmas shopping in Paris without Lafayette? Nothing. Even dough you get pushed in every direction, claustrophobic and fear pick pockets in the massive crowd, it can't be missed.  IMG_8602IMG_8618Today Alex and her roommate introduced us to South-American food. Arepas, it's so good. We all literally rolled out of the restaurant.




A day in winter wonder land

Who has the christmas spirit running through their veins...? ME ME ME! Anyone else? That being said I decided to enjoy myself at winter wonderland here in Paris, for the third time. It never gets old or boring, does it? My beautiful Alex and I went, we shopped presies, ate chocolate, went down the slide (yes my inner child still lives) and took a whole lot of pictures.IMG_0044 Hohohoooo, who has been good this year? IMG_0046  IMG_0063 IMG_0068 IMG_0073  IMG_0078 IMG_0080 IMG_8487IMG_0081 IMG_8475 IMG_0075




One of those mornings

p>Today is one of those mornings I just can't seem to get out of bed. I went to my early english class, only to go back to bed. Now I'm trying to drag myself out of it for the second time today. I still have a marketing class to attend. Tonight the girls and I are going to the first homeparty here, in Paris. We usually go to clubs, so that will be interesting. Sometimes I miss the homepartys back in Norway with all my friends and classmates. 

Farvell enn så lenge

The typical Saturday

The past week has been filled with loads of homework and mid-terms. Now I only have one left, which feels wonderful. Other than that I do not feel  I have any significant updates for you guys. Reuniting with my girls in Paris was phenomenal and this weekend has been only sleepovers. In two weeks, we are headed for London, which I'm super thrilled about! Today Caro and I had our standard Saturday brunch together and stayed in bed all day chilling.IMG_6849Jeans, scarf & sweater  - Zara, shoes - Uggs, glasess - Ray Ban, hat - BikBokIMG_6869After way to many hours in bed walked the 2 min walk over to place Victor Hugo and had a pasta brunch with a delish desert. A meal in Paris with out dessert is usually nonexistent in my case...IMG_6886IMG_6877




O-town weekend

This weekend I took a break from my hectic, fun and fab life in Paris, and traded it in for some good old family time in Norway. I went home to Oslo to spend some time with my lovely mommy who isn?t feeling to well. I?ve been able to hang out with my brother, go for walks with my mom and enjoy the lovely weather my hometown graced me with, during my stay. IMG_6812IMG_6814

A Sunday Saturday

All day I have been imagining that it's Sunday. Caro and I woke up in a trance after last night. The only thing we managed to do was eat, eat and eat some more junk... We even managed to miss our massage appointment. Finally, by seven o'clock I hopped in the shower and we were able to crawl down to Ladurée and meet Farah. Now we are trying to plan a trip to Geneva in the near future, before we head out for the night.bbbIMG_0623For all my Norwegian readers, this image makes me think of one thing "like barn leker best IMG_0624IMG_0629

The end of the weekend

Hey dolls. Hope you all enjoyed your weekend, I certainly did. With the loveliest girls as company, how could I not? I have still not had time to feel homesick, considering we are like a little, loving and always laughing family. I spend today recovering from the past nights out on the town. Morning coffee, afternoon walking in Champ-de-Mars and girls night. Tomorrow is the first official day of school (exciting exciting!). IMG_0442 IMG_0459 Desktop153 IMG_5781 My fab girls from last night, Gabs and Farah <3photo




Last day of vacay

It has been beyond nice to get my Mandy and some Norwegian blood down her. When you have someone familiar you feel so much safer and happier then when you're just surrounded by strangers. The other day we decided to stroll the city streets, with no agenda, just walking where ever the wind would blow.IMG_7101-682x1024IMG_7129-1024x682Im beyond thrilled we found a frozen yogurt place 2 minutes away form school. I don't even need to think about what I'm having for lunch now!IMG_7201-756x1024IMG_7155IMG_7137-1024x682IMG_7159IMG_7268We ended what turned out as hours of walking around, at the Cafe de Flore. Have you seen a cuter little cafe? I think it's right up there on the list with the cutes ones.




Hidden oasis

Outfit pictures from yesterday, how charming is this hidden oasis we stumbled upon walking the streets of Paris. In the middle of large buildings and busy streets, this charming side street accrued.   IMG_0288 IMG_0301 Loved combining my unique Moxy batman t-shirt with feminine floral lace shorts. IMG_0316

B-day dinner at marly

Yesterday was such a good birthday, but also a very different one. Instead of being surrounded by all darlings, I was in a city where I can count all the people I know on one hand. You would think it felt lonely, but far from it. Thanks to the bellowed internet I got so many texts from everyone I miss back home, and was just showered in the sweetest texts and birthday messages. Everyone was texting me through the day and checking up on me. In a weird way, I kind of felt more love coming my way then a typical birthday. It is funny how change and distance puts things in perspective and make you so appreciative of what and whom you have! And do not get me wrong I was not alone throughout the day. After coffee with Taylor and her roommate and shopping I met up with Hilary. We had a lovely birthday dinner at Cafe Marly. I have to add, the view is so pretty from their terrace. The pictures do not even do it justice. When in Paris, go there and watch the sun go down, then the louvre lights turn on.DSCN9993IMG_5603DSCN0005I was wearing my new jumpsuit from Zara that I'm dying to show you a better picture of! The shoes and blazer is also from Zara, I don't believe I have to tell you where the bag is from.  DSCN0004Desktop150




Random MIX

Sorry for the poor blogging guys... But being home for 2 weeks is kinda like my vacation, in a vacation... If you get what I mean...? I try to make the most of every day, and spend as much time with all of my loves, that I won't be seeing for a while. Therefor the blog is not on my mind as much as it is when I'm in my regular routine.Desktop148Last night I was just browsing through weheartit and pintrest, and I came across these pictures of me. They are from my previous, Norwegian blog. I thought it would be fun showing you, in case you just started reading recently. (You can notice I do not have much to blog about when we are just doing a flashback post...)




Love HBO

If someone knows how to put together an event, it's HBO. They have an eye for details, and every event is always so well done. Yesterday they were screening the premiere of The White Queen. I love costume dramas that take place in historical events. So this series is right up my alley.IMG_0085We were invited to one of the oldest buildings in Oslo, greeted with flower bands and champagne. They then led us into a restored room from the medieval times, where the show was shown. Afterwards, it was time for some food, mingling and some more cocktails to sip on.IMG_0101Jacket - BCBG max azria, jeans - H&M, topp - Forever21, shoes - Zara, bag - BalenciagaIMG_0113 IMG_0119




More fun from the weekend

So here are some more fun photos from the weekend Mari visited me in Paris. The nice thing about having someone come and see me, is the I forces you to try new things and play around in the city all day. Obvious you can't sit around half the day, and do nothing.IMG_0037One of the maybe most fun things we did, was renting a bike and spin around the city. We had so many laughs, joked around all day. It was just a blast. They have these bikes all over Paris. So if you are visiting and have some spare time, give it a go! You will love it!IMG_0080IMG_0082IMG_5255IMG_5271After saying our goodbyes to the bikes, we strolled over to the Jardin des Tuileries. The grounds are so beautiful and to get an even better view we took the ferris wheel. I always tell people, if you do not want the 2 hours line at the Eiffel tower, give the wheel a go. No line, cheap and amazing views!IMG_2964My darling <3DSCN0058IMG_5246IMG_5244By pure coincidence we wandered into Pierre Hermé. A luxury macron brand. Forget Laudrée, this is the real deal. The macrons where sooo tasty, and their strawberry/orange sorbet, was the best I've ever tasted. That is coming from someone that takes pride in being a sorbet lover and expert. 




L'avenue lunch

One of my top five places to wine and dine in Paris is, L'avenue. especially during the summer months, when you can sit outside and enjoy the food, fashion and fabulousness that surrounds the restaurant. It's a hotspot for celebrities and a favorite of the chic Parisians. More or less every time I visit Paris I visit L'avenue. Lucky for me, now I can eat there all the time! I would highly recommend a pitstop there. Either for lunch or dinner.DSCN9982DSCN9983 This time around I chose the spicy chicken springrools, soooo delish!DSCN9985




Last nights look

Where do I begin...? Last night was such a blast. Seeing Mari again was the best feeling ever. When it comes to our little adventure out on the town, I will sadly have to leave that out of the blog. I will say though that it was unforgettable... As almost all of the clubs in Paris are closed in August (not the best month to visit if you fancy going clubbing), we had to try out a new one. VIP room, it was good, not great, but I believe that is the lack of most partypeople in the city this month. Regardless, we had an epic night.Desktop147

Dress - Nelly, jacket - Mango, shoes - Zara, bag - ChanelDSCN0046DSCN0044Now we are headed out for the best hangover cure, shopping and coffee. Maris volunteered to be my blog manager today. So no more strangers taking a picture of me. I think that calls for a hurray!

Have a lovely day!




Happy morning

God morning cupcakes. Just stopping by to share some happy moments, and spread the feeling. I've been waiting for this day ever since Ella and Fanny had to go home. Today my happy camper Mari, is finally coming to see me. I've had so many lonely days in Paris the last weeks. I've managed, but it sucks being here all by myself. So this visit has been highly anticipated. This weekend will be so much fun! I'm going to be Mari's Paris guide. Take her to the best restaurants, clubs and show her all my beloved Paris has to offer.bilde (18)




Evening in St Germain

This evening I had a dinner date with the lovely Hilary, who is also starting at AUP. She lives in the super cute St Germain area, so we met up there. We strolled, until we found an equally as cute restaurant. We ended up at Les Deux Magots, where I had a delish plate of grilled shrimp, and sipped on a glass of Chardonnay. I do not know if it's the summer effect or if I've just changed. Lately, all I eat is seafood. Loving it!IMG_2931 IMG_2936 IMG_2943 IMG_2950

As the sun went down, we took a little walk in the neighborhood. Through the tiny streets filled with tiny restaurants. We stopped at Grom for some gelato. It's supposedly one of the best places in Paris to enjoy a scoop (or in my case two). All I can say is; I totally agree! If you fancy popping by, you can find it at 81 Rue de Sein

Casual Sunday

Hi lovebugs. Hope you´re having a nice and chill Sunday. It is after all the day to lie around and do nothing. On the contrary, though, today I got up and outside and did something. For days,  a significant problem has been that none of the other students from AUP, are in Paris yet. So here I am in this big, wonderful but also overwhelming city alone. Luckily, through the school Facebook page I got in touch with a Londoner, working in Paris. So we got together and met up for Sunday brunch. Finally some human contact, with a native English speaker. The only other place I do not feel judged speaking English is Starbucks.IMG_2912After a nice brunch I decided to take a stroll through the park surrounding the Eiffel Tower, and enjoy the nice weather.  IMG_2923IMG_2914IMG_2909IMG_2905




01.08.13

Day 4 in Paris alone now. Even though it is not the most fun being all alone, it has been ok. Starting to get tired of my solo dates at Starbucks every day, but I'm getting by. Luckily I'm meeting up with some of the girls from AUP tomorrow, and this weekend I'm meeting one of the boys. Other than that my days have not been that productive. It is soooo hot here, trying to stay inside. But you know me, I always find the energy to go shopping. IMG_5139 IMG_5146 Not the best outfit pic, but hens I'm alone. It was either taking  a picture in the mirror at Zara, or asking a stranger. I rather go with the first option!IMG_5154 What do you guys think about these shoes by the way? Ever since I saw the Isabel Marant shoes I have hated them. But now, I have to admit they are growing on me. It's evolved more into a love/hate relationship. IMG_5159 IMG_5160




Adios

A couple of days before I left my darling Norway I gathered all of my friends for a farewell party. It was such a bitter sweet night. On one side, it was so nice to see all of my friends together, and everyone was there. On the other hand, in the back of my mind I was thinking of why we where all gathered that night. To say goodbye....   Anyway, thank you all for coming. I will truly miss each and every one of you!IMG_0155I love this picture so much. It's the imperfection of it that makes it so perfect.Desktop144 I will say though, the day after was not so pleasant. Note to my self. NEVER have a party two days before your moving, and not packed. I spent my whole last day in Norway packing and cleaning. Not ideal activities while suffering from a severe hangover... Well well, lesson learnd.




Wine and dine

On saturday,  I took Ella to my fave Place to wine&dine in Paris, the restaurant in Hotel Costes. I love the Parisian garden feel it has, and the vibe is always so good. Not to mention the food, it's impeccable. It is the perfect pitstop if your going out after, seeing that everyone is always dressed up there.IMG_5108 IMG_5118 In the mood for seafood, I went with the king crayfish, so delish. I would recommend the mashed-potatoes as a side, the best I've ever tasted! The only downside  is the French menu. It can make it hard to know what your ordering. Poor Ella thought she was ordering steak, as in meat. Instead, she was served a steak of tuna. Hahaha. At least it gave us a good laugh!IMG_2791 Dress from Zara and bag Chanel IMG_2749 After dinner we decided to take a walk and se Paris by night. The city is just as beautiful at night time as in the day time. it truly lives up t the name, city of lights.  IMG_2799 IMG_2805




Hello there Paris

This is my new blog about my new adventure, my move to Paris. I decided to not only make a lifestyle change but also give my blog one as well. So from now on I will blog from LEAREIFF.COM not femelle. And I will do so in English. During my move over the weekend i brought my lovely friends Ella and Fanny. I thank good every time i say that. Because this move would not have happened without these two happy helpers. Bringing my whole wardrobe, setting up an apartment, buying lifesavers at the store. I was clueless. So thank you so much my darlings. IMG_2711 IMG_5073 IMG_5068 IMG_2726 Some snapshots from our first days. We spent them 50/50 in moving-mode and the rest in shopping&eating mode. Live, eat, sleep, move and shop was our schedule. IMG_2812 IMG_2819 IMG_5127 Of course we had to lunch at Ladurée. It's mandatory when in Paris. And who doesn't love a sugar kick from macrons?
