Sharing coffees and wine with  likeminded souls is always good remedy for anything. Taking photos, stalking insanely handsome surfers on Instagram, being single together. Seeing the world a little differently than most & choosing paths out of the ordinary.  Following our hearts instead of following the “smart choices”, which society expects of us.

 

Why be ordinary when you can go for extraordinary?

I´m pretty sure I´ve become really bad at dealing with winters, but one thing I do LOVE about real winters are going into the mountains, driving through the most amazing landscape. It is fairy-tale like, magical and mysterious. This weekend a group of my friends and I spent our time drinking to many glasses of wine, watching the snow playing up all crazy around us, doing a very short cross country trip, just to feel the cold wind on or cheeks. Followed by more wine, burning wood and slow-mood at my friends cabin.

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

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.

Happy Sunday from a very hungover and tired lady. It is mostly being spent on the sofa, drinking tea and eating dried fruits, already looking forward to next weekend with a little less alcohol involved and more fresh air.

……..

 

Christmas is just around the corner, which means all sort of big and small green trees, christmas flowers, and decorations are available to purchase. I´m personally not a christmas person, so our apartment will not be covered in much christmas decorations. However I do love to bring some nature inside, and have some green around the house. So far I have decided to not buy any tree or plants, but simply create it myself.

It is super easy, just go for a walk in a bit of a forest area, bring a knife or scissor and pick some nice straws, branches, with both green and autumn coloured leafs. If you just leave them without water, the plants will not go rotten, just simply dry up and you can keep it for a long time. I´ve already had it for two weeks and it still looks great.


Budget friendly and it adds personal touch to your decorations

I was also lucky to come across a neighbour who had being trimming some trees, and all the leftover branches were laying in a pile, for anyone to take home. So there we got a very improvised little odd christmas tree.

Hi lovelies, I´m just dropping in to share my thought on Black Friday, coming up tomorrow. Black Friday is not good for anything. Is only making people crazy, ruining the meaning of clothes or other material things, and our view on what we should pay for things vs what is right to pay, to ensure fair wages for everyone along the supplier chain.

Our belongings are unfortunately being made to not last, so events like Black Friday creates a even bigger hype around consume and throw, it is time we turned the negative trends around and demand quality over quantity.

Good Sunday to everyone, this Sunday is spent very relaxed mostly at home, listening to good music and drinking tea.
We had a short trip down to the city to join a clothing swap event organised by an environmental group. I got rid of some old clothes that were never in use, and I got a few “new” things. Good to get out of the house for a bit, and support groups that are working for an improved environment.

♥♥♥


I have four songs playing on repeat right now, I can listen to these songs over and over without getting sick of them, also the artist. Produce real quality music.

“But there’s no comin’ home
There’s no comin’ home
With a name like mine
I still think of you
But everyone knows
Yeah everyone knows
If you can, let it go

I seen more places than I can name
And over time they all start to look the same
But it ain’t that truth we chase
No, it’s the promise of a better place”

Hope everyone is having a good Monday? I just got back to Oslo a few hours ago, after a weekend at our little cabin in the mountains. How great you feel after a few days surrounded by nature, the sound of nothing and fresh air. You can really tell the difference when you breath the air in Oslo or another big city compared to mountain air.

It is meditation for your lungs and also for your mind

We are going into the last month of autumn, the darkest and most miserable one. I have to admit I´m starting to feel the heaviness of shorter days and dropped temperatures. October was not to bad over all, so Ill try staying motived as November slowly surrounds me.


 

Walking dogs at the dog shelter have been a really great little positive happening.

 

Having good friends to talk to & social happenings with them

 

Beautiful weather, I have to say being back in Norway I´m really appreciating those blissful days with rays of sun gently stroking my face.
