End of Year

Happy New Year!

I always look through my year on this day and here is My 2010, a fabulous year looking back at it, so many things happened in my life, lots of opportunities and I decided to start my blog this summer which I’m so happy I did. I’m very grateful to you guys following me and hope you will in the coming year as well, if it weren’t for you there wouldn’t be much of a point to it right. I wish you all a wonderful New Year ahead and may all your ambitions and dreams come through. HAPPY NEW YEAR!

My 2010

- Kicked of with skiing trips to my home city Narvik and I had the best easter I can remember.

- I’ve always loved Goat Cheese salad but I think I broke a new record this year.

- Lots of modeling work came up, some off course more enjoyable then others.

- The year of shoes for me, I know, I’m slightly hocked up on Acne shoes but this year I found others as well.

- Summer and traveling, I’ve never been on the road before as much as this year, a romantic trip to a greek Island where I discovered the 5th highest ranked beach in the world, Myrtos, I spent most of my time below the waves. Turkey, a trip with my mum and brother, wonderfully relaxing and we had so much fun. Barcelona, one of my favorite cities in the world, lazy days by the pool and on the beach, followed by late dinners mostly outdoor on L’Acedemia or Sagardi. Laos, a country I visit often, always find peace when I’m there, the people are so lovely and warm and the best food in the world. Shopping weekend to Bangkok, almost drowned cause of the rain. Several trips to Paris, among them a beautiful wedding. The summer in London was also great this year and I soaked it up on outdoor restaurants and parks.

- I wore Chanel Vague a lot on my nails this year.

- My mum visited me under London Fashion Week, when I logged in to Style.com one morning I found an image of us of the front, snapped by Tommy Ton, what an honor.

- This year the lack of wardrobe space has sometimes my our home look more like a messy store, no images on the walls, just clothes.

- I turned one year older this year and handled it much better this time around.

- Halloween turned into a real trick or treat as I discovered I’d mixed up the dates for the party a little bit too late.

- I’ve met so many wonderful people this year who have become great friends, Johanna, a beautiful Swede is one of them.

- The best investment I’ve ever done was not my Chanel bag or shoe or dress, but my new Nikon D90, never been more happy with anything I’ve bought.

- After a modeling job that ruined my hair early this summer I spent the rest of the year to get it back into shape, thanks to Sergio’s magical hands and his Prosciutto and Pharma cheese I’m there.

- I got offered a great job at Flingly and few weeks after I discovered I was nominated to Vixen Blog Awards, felt as if December was really my month despite the darkness.

- Christmas eventually arrived and I was lucky to catch a flight out of London, I enjoyed it in the same procedure as every year, countryside, family, food, Askepott, gifts, late nights and laughs. The last few days of this year I spent in Oslo and have never been so cold as far as I remember, but it was great and the perfect ending of this year.

- This evening will be celebrated out in the London night, just need to prebook the taxis, I’ve always forgot it earlier on New Year’s eve so lets say I’ve learned, at least we get wiser every year.

Have a good one!

Bye bye Norway, I’m back in London after a wonderful Christmas holiday with family and friends and it’s not over yet. I just realized it’s New Year eve tomorrow and haven’t got a clue what to wear, I never really plan it but I wouldn’t mind having this dress that I spotted at Ada Zanditon’s presentation during LFW in September, haven’t been able to forget about it ever since.

Bjørg

I got this beautiful silver bracelet this Christmas, from Bjørg, a designer from north of Norway, a present from my mum and I love it!

Oslo

Having a great time in Oslo but oh so cold, in fact today I thought I was going to freeze to death at Aker Brygge, a hostile place on a cold day like this but the rest of the city felt much”warmer”. After stopping by the castle around tea time we warmed up over a soup at Lorry. Tonight, dinner made by my mum and then a trip out on the town.

I found this coat in my mother’s closet today and I love it, a shearling fur from Sylvie Schimmel, I want to pack it with me in my luggage for London but I would need to work harder on that one.

Airports

Spending hours alone at an airport where the net is down must be the most boring and waisted time for a blogger, luckily I found an emergency solution. Tomorrow I hope to see Oslo from it’s best side, the minus degrees are following me though but at least the days are longer.

Oki, I’m heading south again, next stop Oslo! Bye bye Narvik

Countryside

Oh what I love Christmas and hope you’re enjoying it yourself and having a lovely time wherever you are.

In a few days I will head down to Oslo but as for now I will soak up the silence and fresh air in the north, today we have  willow grouse on the menu, the best food in Norwegian cuisine.

Merry Christmas again!

Home Sweet Home

A view of my hometown, shortly after this image was taken today it turned completely dark outside, you only get 20 min of daylight this time of year and this is as close to sunshine as we get, only a glimpse of it in the horizont.

Now heading out to our family place on the countryside, think I’m gonna jump into our outdoor jacuzzi tonight, did I mention it’s -15?

Happy Christmas Everyone!

Candies

After surfing through Alexander Wang’s spring collection with my mum today we agreed, one of these pair of shoes will be on my feet this spring and the other pair on her’s.

Gotta run out to meet friends for drinks, have a lovely eve!

Crawings

Gosh I love these sequined leggings from Isabel Marant, if you want to see some other alternatives for them I’ve posted it on Flingly.

Shine

Taken on Saturday eve on the way to hit the club, this shiny top is from Zara, love it, a real high street keeper an paired it with pink lips and a black skirt.

Ok, time to hit the bed, the fresh air up here knocks me completely out, sweet dreams!

Norway

Bad updates today, in fact I’ve been traveling since 6 this morning, was so lucky my flight took off and now I’ve finally reached my destination after a 4 hour bumpy journey in a car from Tromsø to Narvik. At the moment I’m wrapped up in a fur blanket and UGG’s trying to warm up while working, I’ll be back.

Help

Over the years I have developed packing phobia, always delayed to the absolute last minute and it doesn’t make it easier that my trips are never one round trip, but always tend to travel half around the globe.

Love

I want to wear flared black pants and a colorful top like this paired with my future green coat straight away but I don’t have any of them right now. What I should do is to focusing on my billion-things-to-do-list and hopefully if I’m lucky my flight will take off tomorrow.
