My first post!

Finally I decided to get my blog started. I’ve been reading others blogs for years and now, thanks to some inspiring, already well established bloggers who encouraged me to start my own. If I only knew the time it would take to design my site the way I wanted I wouldn’t have hesitated a moment to ask someone to do it for me, well, I didn’t and I’m not a web designer! Even if it’s not rocket science this probably tells you a little bit of who I am, quite persistence when I’m working on something but luckily for me and my surroundings this it not the only thing that describes me. I have many interests, fashion is among them, food, travel and beautiful things in life as well and this is what my blog’s gonna be about. 

So now when it’s up I want to have some fun, hopefully with great images, outfits, tips and inspiration for anyone out there and I would be so grateful if you wanna come along with me either if it’s because you find it inspiring or just simply because you know me and do it for supportive reasons (mum?) that’s great as well. If it’s the right format for you or not, you decide, but if you would be so kind to give me a little of your time and maybe feedback in one way or another, I hope not to disappoint. I already started a series of streetstyle images on facebook a while ago that some of you might have seen but here’s finally the forum I want to be in.

And there’s one more thing, my language, please don’t judge me too hard on it, English is not my mother language and even if I handle it well I sometimes get lost in translation of my own words and thoughts as if listening to my own thoughts in Norwegian isn’t confusing enough.

I had a late Sunday dinner in London’s China town today, practically outside my doorstep. Since I just got home from a one week off in Turkey under the sun and have huge problems admitting that 56 degrees down there does not equal 18 degrees in windy London I’m still wearing shorts.

After staring into every store I passed in Turkey for a leather hat I gave it up and the only bargain I left home with except fantastic memories was this silver ring, it’s gonna be perfect with the camel colors I’m gonna wear this coming season.

As for other things I’m wearing, knitted jumper from Monki, vintage Levi’s shorts, court shoes COS, watch Tagheuer and bag Alexander Wang
