I had a really nice birthday celebration last night, a few friends yummy food & wine in a small low key bar/restaurant. It was just how I like it. A few days a go I was in need of some inspiration and motivation, often feeling a bit different than the norm I do need to boost my system with alternative thinking from likeminded people. Searching for some input I came a cross two documentary´s on Netflix, both really hit me they way I had hoped, sparking my system.


A travel documentary about a young couple finding their path, inspiration and searching for a higher meaning in life, while travelling in a selfmade living bus.

Nature. Loneliness. Mindfulness. Culture. Togetherness. Happiness.



Following a extremely depressed person, who is on the verge of killing himself. Travelling alone to Peru, seeking up ancient wisdom and medicine healers to to try make one last effort to cure his depression. It is a really honest, raw and inspiring story.

Depressing. Raw. Honest. Eye-opening. Alternative.




Happy Friday to everyone,  all though most of us love weekends, do not forget to enjoy everyday. Life is to short to just live for the weekends. With that said, I do hope you have a wonderful weekend ahead? Either if you have to work, are going away, are already on holiday or maybe even returning from holiday?


I´m on the bus home, to have family time and birthday celebrations. My mum´s birthday was yesterday, and my birthday is Thursday next week, so we are having a small family gathering on Saturday. I´m not to fussed about celebrating my birthday to be honest, especially 26, dont really need a big party for that.  However I do like having some quality time with the family, eating good food and playing cards.

We are making a yummy baked veggie risotto, with bruschetta and other delicious sides and the best part, carrot cake for dessert. I personally are not a big cake eater, but I do love carrot cakes, so making this vegan version for the first time, I´m pretty exited about the result.







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.






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.


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”
