May Haul

As some of you might be able to tell, this is my first video in a long long time. Hens I was a bit uncomfortable and "nervous". So maybe  bit to much babling away, but here is the video anyways, room for improvement! 

 




30.05.2014

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...?

Dress from Zara and hat from H&M.






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. 








Paris Q&A answers

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

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

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

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

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

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.
