WOW! How fast did November go? Don´t know with you guys, but I cant believe it is almost the end of 2016. Looking back at November that that passed so quickly, I must say it has been a good month.

Staying active, I´ve been able to get at least three days of exercise every week, not slacking off, like I often tend to do. So I´m just in a really great state right now. I don´t pay for a yoga studio or gym, since the temperature in Sydney is always pretty good for outdoor fitness.

Jens and I went on a little trip to Jervis Bay, something I really needed, just getting away from the busy city and get my mind of uni, assessments, work, just life in general


My final design outcome for my brand development at uni, wow this have been so much fun, and hard work! I just really love the look I designed, the amazing work from my maker and just getting used to the whole process of ides, design, source, working with industry, branding and so on.


Hope your November was amazing too! Anything specially that you found to stand out in your life?

“One Small Positive Thought In The Morning, Can Change Your Whole Day”

2016-11-19-10-03-17-1 2016-11-19-10-03-20-1 2016-11-19-10-03-18-1

We just got back to Sydney after a great weekend spent in Jervis Bay, away from traffic, city noise and stress surroundings. My body has been filed up with new energy and motivation for the next coming weeks.

Have a great Monday lovelies, hope you managed to fill up your bodies as well

Hi lovelies, hope you are having a great weekend, don´t let life get in the way of your dreams.

If someone told me four years ago that I would be studying fashion design and branding on the other side of the planet ( Australia), living in a hostel for over a year, working on a lime farm picking limes, get a phone call about my grandmothers sudden death, not being able to see her one last time or be on Australian TV, feel extreme sadness, happiness, loneliness, excitement among so many other life changing experiences; I don´t know if I would have believed it.

Our lives are so short that it´s not worth living the life expected of you, dream crazy and let the unexpected happen.

I want to continue being crazy;

Living my life the way I dream it,

And not the way other people want it to be.

Dream Crazy & Live Big

Hi sweethearts, hope you are all having a wonderful day.

The magazine I blog for; Femelle.no is running a competition, announcing “This Years Femelle Blogger 2016”. It would be amazing if you took your time to give me, Ginger Gypsy a vote HERE, if you think I deserve it. I´ve been a Femelle blogger for 4-5 months now, so there are many other bloggers that has been a part of the network much longer, that also deserve to win. Still worth a shot, as I´m super happy to be apart of the network and will continue to be.


If you give me a vote I will be really grateful

Thank you beautiful x

It´s the time of year that these beautiful tree´s are flowering deep purple flowers around Sydney.

It means Summer is upon us, more light in the evenings and good energies in the air and it does make you feel great. Seeing the nature flower reminds me of how fragile it is, being constantly abused by humans. Take a step back look around you, stop abusing, start appreciating and slow down your lifestyle.


Before we can change our current life patterns,


The soul tests us to see if we have learned from them.


If we can recognise the underlying needs that allowed that pattern to repeat,


Then we can transition into the next phase of our life.


A phrase of awareness to enlighten your life, just as it enlightened my life.


 Phrase borrowed from @sustainable_human /instagram

Can I justify it? I´m not sure. But I decide to let go and live in the moment I´m in right now, not hold on to worries or mistakes of the past.


One thing that I´ve been feeling awful about is my previous purchases of new leather goods. I do not buy any leather goods new anymore, secondhand though, I do. I do still use my leather goods that I did not buy secondhand, simple because what is done is done, I rather live in this current moment, and look forward.

I can criticise myself as much as I like, make myself feel bad for decisions I have made, but it will not change the past anyway.

The beauty of life is that we will always make mistakes and you got to choose if you will learn from them or not. I choose to learn from the things that I see as mistakes in my life. We all have our own demons to deal with, yours different than mine. Hopefully you can manage to let go of the worries of the past and live in the moment.


Lets Live In The Moment

How happy I was waking up Friday morning, to find a package full of treasures waiting for me.

My amazing grandparents, decided to surprise me, with some great Norwegian treats. Living abroad, there is nothing better than receiving Norwegian goodies and speak Norwegian once in a while, if you have lived abroad or do, you know what I mean. We often dont appreciate what we do have until we do not have it anymore, my time away has really made me so happy for this life I got and my amazing country.

Hello October!

New month, warmer days, new challenges & new opportunities.

  Before getting started on October I was inspired by fellow Femelle blogger Nenna Echem, doing a recap of her top 5 September moments, which is a great way to remind yourself of some good moments that has passed, preparing for new once to arrive.

Hope everyone are ready for what ever October may bring





Ubud has to be experienced, it is just so beautiful


Uni started 3 weeks ago and it is so great to be back feeling really motived this time!



After the holiday I started doing meditation again, a minimum of 5 days a week, I´ve also got back into my really good yoga routines, twice a week.



I AM ENOUGH, how often do you tell yourself that? I for sure do not say it enough, or think it enough. We all struggle to be better, the constant pressure we put on ourself. The constant comparisons we make, everyday. I´ve started watching/reading and listening to really great and inspirational people the last few weeks, it makes you take a step back and look at yourself and see your life from a new angle. I got so much to learn in this life, cause the truth is we never stop learning or growing, today I decided to tell myself every day that I AM ENOUGH. cause it the truth, I am.

Now it is your turn to, tell yourself everyday, no matter if it is a good day or a bad one, YOU ARE ENOUGH!!! cause the more you believe in yourself, the more you will achieve. Write it down, say it out loud, tell other friends to practise the same, be proud of yourself, everyday. Watch this video for some weekend inspiration, to get you motived.
