Hi lovelies and almost happy new year to everyone

We are flying off to London tomorrow morning, we have a pretty busy schedule, doing some vintage browsing and shopping followed by dinner and musical tomorrow.  31st will be some sightseeing, then followed by a Great Gatsby themed  New Years Eve party, which I think will be an unforgettable evening.

Ill hopefully update you during our stay or when we get back home, as it is only for 4 days.

Hi lovelies, I´m back in Oslo, working for a few days after a few nice days spent with family. I love being home enjoy my childhood home and just doing nothing really. Christmas is not a holiday I´m very found off, but I do like being together, having days off and the christmas lights are pretty nice now during dark days. I just wanted to give a quick summary of a few of my favourite gifts, as I did receive a few, thankfully almost just things I needed or actually did really want.

As I´m trying to lead a more non materialistic lifestyle, I do still think it is ok to want things to a certain extent.  All though I personally believe most things will not make you much happier.

A FEW FAVOURITES

Happy sparkling holidays from this gypsy in the north.

Hope everyone are having good time with family, friends or others they may be spending time with. I´m home in Larvik for a few days, then going back to Oslo for a few days working before flying off to London celebrating the new year.

I had a sparkling christmas eve, wearing an a amazing vintage sequin dress, there is not enough happenings to wear such a dress, so I love it when I can go all in.

Enjoy your holidays and look after each other

The winter season is months and months of wearing knitwear, most of the time jumpers, but why not also wear knitted skirts and dresses? I´m a skirt & dress girl, I rarely wear pants so wearing skirt during winter is bound to happen. Being back in Norway, the winters are a bit colder than what I´m used to, so I need to wear warmer stockings and also adding some warm wool skirts or dresses to the wardrobe helps.

 

……

 

This season I inherited many warm skirt from my grandmother, including this homemade knitted skirt, which is absolutely gorgeous.

Finding a good quality wool skirt can be difficult, I´ve seen the best options at vintage & OP shops. You get something unique, most likely a really good quality if you choose the once you see look old and you save the environment a little.

Hi lovelies, christmas is in less than a week´s time, and many people are probably still out looking for gifts for friends and family. My family and I have decided not to give many gifts this year, and I have only wished for things I really need and some contribution to experiences I want to experience. I know many people believe that giving money for christmas is a no go, but if all you really want is to save up for something special, or you wanna pay down your debts, why not?

 

Giving experiences, think environment, buy something used and wrap it all up in reusable pretty boxes for a zero waist christmas experience.

 

Happy mindful, waist-free christmas everyone

Just checking in to say happy weekend to everyone, hope you are having a good one.

 

I´m home this weekend, celebrating my grandpas birthday, I got yesterday off and working late Monday, so I got a nice long weekend at home, which is great. Friday I did yoga at my mums work  as they have their own personal gym at the office, then having dinner at my grandpas place. Today we are having dinner out, good to spend some quality time together and with my gorgeous cat Mango.

The last week has been pretty cold, windy and it has been snowing as well, so I´ve joined the “parkas community”. I always prefer wearing nice coats and jackets, but sometimes you just have to give in for keeping warm and comfortable.  I had a good winter parkas from Fjellreven, but I were wanting something even bigger and longer. I found the perfect one from a Scandinavian brand called Samsøe Samsøe, no leather details and no down.

PERFECT

I sold my old jacket, and invested in a new one, as I would not see the point in having two almost identical jackets for the same use, so someone esle can be happy with my old jacket is perfect.

Hi lovelies, it is Monday. Almost half way through December and all though I dont really care to much for christmas, I am going to spend my days off with my family in Larvik. I´m working until the 23rd, so I do not have much time this year preparing food and I dont wanna put to much pressure on my mum either.

I therefor did some research, as it is going to be 3 days of family time and food, I wanted to eat something a bit different than usual. I did some research and found the perfect answer to my food dilemma.

The vegan christmas food box from www.veganermat.no
(only available here in Norway)

It covers everything you need for a tasty, easy and cruelty free christmas dinner & brunch. Perfect if you are after a little different food this christmas or you simply wanna add some more healthy plant based food to your dinner table.

LAST ORDERING DATE IS TODAY 11.12.17 SO DONT MISS OUT ON AN EPIC FEAST

Christmas is just around the corner, the time of year when people spend ridiculous amounts of money on things most people do not need. It starts with the christmas calendar, one gift for each day counting down to christmas eve. I personally is not a tradition type of person, and specially traditions involving buying is something I try to not participate in.

 

I´ve decided to not do any christmas calendar this year, simply because I prefer spending that money on important things, rather give to charity, spend money on experiences together with your partner our family/ friends.

Hi lovelies, winter is here, and it is still a long time to go until spring time. Winter here in the north is very long, dark and from time to time moody, way worse than I actually could remember.
Therefore I see the importance of setting goals, which will help keep my motivation up and somehow pull me through during moody periods.

 

I´ve decided that winter time requires less goals than the other seasons, as the season is much more challenging for you, so instead of focusing on to many goals, focus on a few and really work towards them.


MY GOALS

 

Do yoga three times a week, sign up for yoga classes at a yoga studio after christmas & meditate 3 times a week.

On my days off  really listen to my body giving it the nurture it needs & get at to see some day light and breath fresh air, even if it is only for a little bit.

Save a decided amount of money, as I do have a goal for the next year, that I´m not going to share until I´m sure I will be able to do it.

 

 


If you like me, find the winter long and daunting set yourself some goals including one that is at the end of the winter, it can be rewarding yourself to something you really want to to, see or need. Then  you have something to work towards and you can see yourself getting closer to the goal, especially on difficult days.
