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 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?

Hi lovelies, it has been a long time since I´ve done monthly updates, as it has been a lot of travelling, moving and life changing events, I fell out of rhythm with that. All though August ended with grief and heartbreak, I still want to focus on the positives, life is to short. I also believe you are allowed to be sad and happy at the same time.

 


FAVOURITES FROM JULY


 

– I got to see my grandmother at home a few times before she ended up in the hospital –

 

 

– The Stavern Festival with all my lovely friends –

 

 

– Visit from Australia & going to Holland –

 


FAVOURITES FROM AUGUST


 

– Two amazing mountain trips with great hikes –

 

 

– Volunteering during Oslo Runway –

 

 

– The last time I went to see my grandmother in the hospital. I did not expect it to be the last, but that is life. Unpredictable. So I have to treasure that moment –

Hi lovely people, it has been a really difficult past couple of days… My amazing grandmother have been struggling with cancer for a few years, and this summer she got really sick, very sudden. It has been a tough two months, of her being in the hospital, not getting any better. Saturday evening her body gave up and she passed away. Thankfully my grandpa was there with her. It is going to be a tough time, after being so much away the last years, I was so happy to finally be home, ready to spend more precious time with her.. It is hard to accept, someone you had such a close relationship with, all the memories, and now there will not be anymore.

I´m so sad, and I´m not yet ready to accept the reality, all though I have to be happy that she is no longer suffering, cause being stuck in a hospital bed is no life worth living.

 

Thank you for all the love and comfort.
Thank you for all the joy and laughs.
Thank you for all support.
Thank you for all the trips.
Thank you for all the love.

……….

 

I´ll try to keep updating a few times a week as usual, all though I´m taking a day at a time. We are also moving into Oslo this weekend, so it is a lot happening at the same time.

Hope you are having a lovely start to your weekend? We have been back and forth to Oslo this week again, as we are in the middle of applying for jobs, interviews and apartment hunting.
This trip from Wednesday to Thursday were a combination of all three, also including helping out during Vanessa Rudjord x ByMagMaLou´s runway show, which was a lot of fun, and I received a nice little
goodie-bag as a thanks for helping out.

 

 

………

 

 

We also saw three apartments, one that we liked a lot, so we are making up our mind this weekend if we are going for it. We still dont have jobs, it is a bit of a risk moving in already, but it is also becoming a bit exhausting going back and forth from Larvik several times a week. This apartment was just perfect. I also have a few interviews which is making it more exiting going forward. Back in Larvik again for the weekend, joining a family party and catching up with some friends, just enjoying the calm small city life, cant complain with a view like this.

I´m in on my way to Oslo again, dropping of my aussie friend then Jens and I got a few appointments today, then working for a local Oslo brand tomorrow morning, for their fashion show in corporation with the “Fashion week” here in Oslo. Fun to take part of the show, and slowly get into the industry here in Norway. It is slowly going towards autumn, new season and new opportunities. Crazy how fast the summer went?! All though I cant complain as I´ve had holiday since I finished my studies three months ago.

……….

I´ve really been loving the denim look this summer, a bit different than what I usually go for, but it is always fun to try new things right? Denim and blue hues also suit the summer time, especially when you spend time on the coast. I´ve also had all my clothes shipped to Holland, then from Holland to Norway, so my choice of clothes have been narrowed down.

Hi lovelies, we had such a busy but great weekend, with Jens´s dad and girlfriend visiting us from Holland, it was a very short visit this time around. Jens´s dad were so kind to offer to drive all our belongings over to Norway, as it arrived in Holland due to cheaper shipping costs from Sydney. We have not moved to Oslo yet, so since it was such a brief visit, we decided to stay around Larvik, showing them local places.

 

……..

 

Tomorrow I have a friend / x-work mate from Sydney arriving, so another two days of sightseeing and fun coming up for us. Also some more exiting things coming up this week, which I´ll give you an update on later on.

It has been two great weeks in Holland, creating better relations with family in-law and dutch friends. Moving home to Europe will make it much easier for us to build our relationship with everyone on this side of the planet. Holland is only a short flight away for us now, and so is the rest of Europe;

NEW ADVENTURES & DIFFERENT CULTURES

Visiting many different little cities and towns the past few weeks I´ve come to really adore the dutch canals, one of the characteristics of Holland.
