If there is one thing I never can get enough off, it is nature. Beautiful untouched, wild nature. I´m so lucky to be surrounded by so much beautiful nature and have the opportunities to go and discover more.  I´ve left Sydney´s and its amazing coastline behind, I cant wait to spend some more time around mountains and lakes here in Norway. I love that I can live only a short subway ride away from the city and have all this nature around me.

Finding a state of mindfulness is different for everyone, being in and around nature always gets me to a state of mindfulness. Our nature are an endless journey of magical moments.

HOPE YOU FIND YOUR STATE OF MINDFULNESS SURROUNDING YOURSELF WITH BEAUTY LIKE THIS & DONT TAKE IT FOR GRANTED.

Weekend is over again, almost a shame how quickly they pass by. I´m working this afternoon, so spending my morning doing yoga and updating the blog.
This weekend was a quite one, starting with a beautiful walk Saturday morning, then spending a few hours in the city. There is a “ECO WEEK OSLO ” happening, so there was a huge farmers market down by the harbour. All the different stands, had food and drink samples for everyone to try, and you could purchase their specialty products for a good price.


 – Saturday walk around Østensjø –

– Attending the farm markets in collaboration with the ECO WEEK OSLO –

– Baker Hansen ( a Norwegian bakery/cafe chain) has started using oatmylk instead of soy, so I´m sooo exited about that. Oatmylk is just hundre times better than soy, and it is also healthier. –

 


Sunday was a combination of cleaning the apartment and getting out of the house. We walked down to Nordstrand beach area, only a 35 min walk from us, brought some fire wood, veggie sausages and enjoyed a few hours outside. The weather were so so this weekend, but still good to get out. Love that we have so many green spots around us.


 

– Having a little bbq at the beach, with the tastiest veggie sausages I´ve ever tried, you get them at coop stores around Norway. –

 

 

 

Hope you have a good week ahead, I´m working, doing internship, catching up with a friend, going home to help my grandad for a day and then Jens and I have our good friends Zoe and Mauro coming to visit us. They are also moving back to Europe from Sydney, so we are so exited to see them again.

Happy weekend lovelies, hope you have some nice plans this Saturday?

It´s a food festival going on in Oslo, with tastings of Norwegian produced products and several events around the city, we are going to check it out a bit later, but first I wanted to share a great DIY project that I just finished with my mum.

 

HOMEGROWN DRIED HERBS

My mum has a lovely garden with loads of pretty flowers, but more interesting, a huge herb garden. With; oregano, thyme, mint, parsley, lavender and a few others as well.
Drying herbs is easy, you pick a huge bunch, better do it before it gets to cold, so end of August beginning og September is a good time. Either lay them flat on a tray or hang them up, best to keep them in a dry place. They need a few weeks to dry, so be patient.

 

When they are dry enough, you just pull the leafs of the stick/branch. So you only get the herb leafs, then crush them a bit, so it realises more of the flavour and it will also be easier to use it in everyday cooking. I always keep old glass jars, which is perfect storage for the dried herbs, it looks nice, so it is also a really nice little gift idea.

I´ve been home for a couple of days, enjoying family time, fresh ocean breeze and some forrest hiking…
Going home often allows for a more laid back style, as I´m mostly around the house, with the family or out enjoying nature. I arrived back in Oslo today, so I got to take some quick outfit photos, as I thought its nice to also show a more casual laid back look. Often outfit posts, are planned and styled up, which I actually love, but I believe it is good to show both sides of the story, as people dont always have plenty of time or energy to dress up, you can also look cool with a laid back outfit.

Hi lovelies, weekend is here again. I´m going home this weekend, spending some time with my family.
Now that I´m settled, and I got more space, I´ve taken my sewing machine out, and started on some projects. Only small once, as sewing is my least favourite part of the design process. Having that said, I do like visualising, creating & making. So when I get in the mood, it is really nice. Also seeing the result is great.


 

This week I´ve taken the sleeves off a linen blouse, which made it it a bit more cool. (it is a summer blouse, so wont wear it until next year) Then I found some pieces of a cool vintage fabric that I have, and a knitted top (used to be part of a dress) and made it into a new top. I love combing different textured fabrics and colours. So this top is really my style. As the back of it is short / open it will be cool with a high waisted skirt or pants.

Hope your week is going all right? We have almost been living in Oslo for two weeks now, so are getting into routines. I thought I should give you a small update on what is going and will happen the next coming months.


 

We are renting a really nice “half basement” apartment close to Ekeberg. As we came to Norway with basically nothing, we decided to rent a furnished place for the beginning, as we dont know yet what is going to happen next.

 

 

I´m starting working for local owned boutique called Kiman Woman, which distributes many Scandinavian labels, like; IBEN, DAY and Baum & Pferdgarten and many more.

 

 

I´m starting a design / marketing internship with a small Oslo label called By MagMaLou, I love working with small labels, especially a local one as well. It is great getting back into a good work habit.

 

 

 Living a bit out of the city, surrounded by several great walking areas makes me so happy. Looking forward to discover my new area.

 

Signing up for yoga is next on the list, when I get my weekly work schedule organised.

Enjoy the rest of your week guys x

 

 

Hi lovelies

Hope you are having a good week? We are getting settled in Oslo, so all little things need to be done and we both had our first days at new jobs, getting used to new routines, work and autumn weather…

 

…………

 

All though summer and light clothes are great, I do love it when the crisp autumn air strikes, and you can find all your woollen sweaters and over sized jackets and scarfs. Layer up with all you got.

Homemade knits are the best, and just before my grandmother got really sick she finished a new jumper for me. Those homemade knitted jumpers are gold worth, and I love the soft wool on my skin, knowing it has been made by one of my favourite people. This was the last thing she knitted, before passing. So it will have some extra value to me.

 

 

 

I love wearing simple accessories with knits, usually always my favourite watch in golden tones, a necklace sitting around the collar bone or at chest hight.

Hi lovelies, hope your week is going all right? We´ve almost been in Oslo a week already, and we are both starting work next week which is very exiting. As I´m having a bit off a though time, it feels good that things are falling into place and I know my grandma would have been very proud.

 

 

………..

 

 

This week I met up with a good friend of mine, Charlotte. Who have just moved back to Oslo after living in Paris for a while. She and I share the same interest in blogging, social media and fashion. So it is great to meet up, talk and help each other take photos for our blogs and social media. So much more fun when you have a friend with the same interest.

Autumn is defiantly here, and I´m exiting to experience my first nordic autumn in five years. Going into a new season, I like setting some goals for the coming months. Setting goals makes your everyday life a bit more exiting and helps you stay on top of everything.

 

 

Spend time exploring Oslo, all though Oslo is pretty much the same as the last time I lived here. I have a different perspective on life and new interests. So exploring sides of Oslo that meets my interests is high on the list. 

……..

As always, exercise is important. the last few months have been very out of rhythm, so it is a goal to get back into good exercise habits again. 

……..

Spend more time with my family. 

……..

Keep my focus on work and internship, growing and challenge myself. 

 

What are your goals for this coming season?
