AHHH I love this fresh autumn weather we are starting to see here in Sydney, rainy windy stormy days, which makes me Europe-sick.. Hopefully we will get some more nice storms before we move. Wild weather is just so magical and relaxing. During stormy days we often head down to the beaches and watch the surfers and the wild ocean play. Even better when the weather is to crazy for the surfers to be out. It is magical, fresh and so beautiful. Love it when I can layer up, and wear my grandmothers vintage Burberry trench from the 60s.

Hope you are having a great weekend a head, I´m pretty booked out this weekend, work, bbq with some dear friends, much uni work that I would like to finish before a insanely busy week next week and hopefully some time to relax; at least my Friday night is spent on the sofa with a glass of red and some relaxing music.

MUCH LOVE

Happy international woman´s day all amazing women out there

Today is the International Woman´s day, which means we should channel some extra time and energy towards empowering woman. This year´s campaign theme is #beboldforchange

Together we can all make small and big changes, being proud and bold feminists, and I don´t mean a feminist who step on top of men or feminist who believe woman are more worth than man. I mean a feminist who fight for their rights and fight for equality between men and woman.

I am a proud feminist who love having a man in my life, I also believe I am worthy on my own, and so are every woman out there. I´ve been lucky in my life, I´ve had everything I ever needed, I always had the opportunity to work and study and live an amazing life filled with opportunity. Unfortunately there are so many woman and men out there, who have not had or will never have a privileged life like mine.

As a woman, a feminist an individual and compassionate person I chose to share this message today, to help the #beboldforchange movement and to dedicate this post to all woman out there.

I have maybe not made a big change, but every little change is important, If you feel like doing something as well, share the message, join an event, tell all the woman in your life how important they are and find a trustworthy organisation and donate. I chose UN Woman organisation. You can donate to them HERE

I´m finishing the day with dinner and wine with some of the amazing woman I´ve had the great privilege of calling friends here in Sydney. They are amazing.

Hi gorgeous people, hope your week is starting off well?

I got a bit of a cold / flue this weekend, so have had a slow Monday, getting better. I usually do not get sick or ill, so thankfully it is a quick road to recovery, without any nasty pills or medications.

Over to something a bit more fun, cause I´m the blogger of the week, for the online magazine that I blog for ; Femelle.no. They have put together a really nice interview / personal portrait about me,  So you can read the full interview with me, sorry it is only in Norwegian this time around.

I`M A BIRTHDAY GIRL

A quick hello from me today, on my 25th birthday, can´t believe I´m turning 25, half way to 50!? I still feel young wild and pretty free, so don´t think there is any chance Ill start feeling the pressure to all of a sudden have everything in place. Having everything in place sounds like a pretty boring life anyway, so no thanks.

HURRAY

I´ve had a pretty easy going day so far, yummy breakfast, working on some upcoming assessments, exercise and now Jens is treating me (us) to a great dinner at this place I´ve wanted to go to for a long time. Then next week will be girlfriend dinner.
Just how I wanted to celebrate;

no fuss no gifts, just quality time food and wine

Have a lovely day or night everyone, I´m going to enjoy an amazing birthday meal with my favourite person.

I´m making a to do plan/ list for the week and next week, The Lumineers playing in the background, homemade bean patties cooking for dinner and my mind is set on positive thoughts.

How you use your mindset changes everything, so when I´m having a hard day, feeling  stressed or out of place; I always turn my mindset around. If you think positive, your life changes accordingly. Mindset is everything. Stay positive even when you don´t feel like it, thats when amazing things happens.

Remember mindset is everything, you can achieve so much with positive thinking

Amazing start to the week for me, I had internship all day, I´m working (interning) for a small boutique label called Jacinta James, the nicest people to work and be surrounded by. Interning for a small label is such an advantage, you really get to see all sides of running a business up close and real. You get to use and develop skills for several areas, and my absolute favourite; working with a small amazing team, building a small unique and sustainable business.

As it is my birthday this coming Wednesday I was so lucky to get chocolate and beautiful sunflowers from them today. Could not have had a better start to this week.
So grateful.

Hope your week is starting off great as well

 

I´m feeling the urge to move, explore and venture new places. My hearth is beating fast for  new adventure. A little change. A big change. I´m restless, impatient and hungry for more. Seeking change and surprise, more challenge and less routine.
My soul dies if standing still for to long.

A week ago I was invited to come sailing in the harbour with a friend, which I said yes to. All though I did not  realise that we were actually going into a regatta or a sail boat race. Which to me would be slightly less appealing than a relaxing sail trip in the harbour. We had some really strong winds, some really step side turns, or whatever it is called, and there were more than a brief second I was reminded why I really dont like sailing that much. I was scared shitless to say it that way. No joke.

I`M I CHALLENGING MYSELF ?

It also reminded me about how important it is to live a bit on the danger side, challenge yourself. I´m I challenging myself enough? It somehow seems a bit forgotten about from time to time. The adrenaline and relief I felt after the race, was amazing. A feeling I do not experience often enough. A feeling I want to feel more often.


The experience resulted in a beautiful sunset which made it even more worth the fear and the screaming.


Enjoy your Sunday everyone, we just got home, met up with friends, having dinner at our favourite burger place; Soul Burger ( best vegan burgers in the world)
