I’m back from a lovely weekend in Copenhagen and I thought I’d drop you a couple of lines. I was there on a girls’ trip with Heidi and I had the best of times- we walked around, stopped by a couple of vintage shops, had a glass of wine in the sun, bicycled around the city, ordered a smørrebrød for lunch, went to an exhibition at the Contemporary Museum and chilled by the harbour with a beer.
Back home to a frozen Oslo and minus 18, I can´t help but wishing I lived somewhere else entirely. I woke up this morning and had to literally race to the kitchen to make the fire, or else I wouldn´t be able to walk around without the duvet wrapped around me.
Anyways. Back to Rome. What a city! Maybe this is the way to see it, after all, not chase after experiences, like I probably did last time, but let go of all expectations and see where it takes you, what it has in store for you. I love being able to walk around with hasty steps, like I have a purpose, music in my ears, let my eyes linger on a building, smile at the sight of a balcony overgrown with plants, reminisce something from another lifetime, then suppress it with the reluctance of swallowing cough syrup.
No, I´m not in Mykonos right now, although I wish I were. It´s my number one destination for the time being. 😉 I want to lounge on a sun bed, say good-bye to bills and stress and just be. Eat Greek salad and drink some fizzy white wine while reading a good book or improving my instagram account. 😉
I´ve always known it was a very beautiful island, but the party vibe kind of scared me off. But now I´m ready to kick back and just not care if there´s a party somewhere, as long as I get my fair share of peace of mind. 😉
Cameron Bloom uses Instagram to document this unique friendship between her son and this bird he rescued as a baby. Although free to fly, the bird returns to their house to be with the family, especially on wet nights. 😉 Enjoy! Continue reading
There´s something about new year that makes you want to improve, grow, change. It also applies to the outside world- freshen up your home, get a couple of new plants, change your hair style, have a mani-pedi. I love collecting beauty and what better excuse to do so than New Year´s Eve promotion codes!
Today I acquired these prints from Hilde Mork´s web store and I can´t wait to get them! The first goes in the bedroom and the second one in the living room. Or maybe the kitchen. What do you reckon? I love the faded colors, the greys and the fact that they´re both understated. Any New Year´s purchases on your part?;-)
We´re organizing a trip to Romania with some friends of ours since I want to show them a glimpse of my mother country and at the same time discover some more of it myself. We´re planning it in May, since it´s her birthday, but also because spring is awesome everywhere, and even more so back home. A week´s time flies fast and we want to make sure we get to see as much as possible, but still enjoy it at a nice pace. We´re hoping to get to see Bucharest, Sinaia, Brasov and Cluj-Napoca. If the latter proves to be too far, we´ll choose Sibiu instead. What do you think? Any suggestions?
Summer is over and I get to wear my new APC wool coat, yippi yey! I got the cat back from our friends and Sammy is a cutie, as always, so life is good. I try to enjoy my afternoons, when I´m not working out with my Personal Trainer (for now, because I dread it so much I´ll be making him a voodoo doll soon enough!), cooking curries and soups and trying to stay away from sweets. 😉 Otherwise I´m getting back to reading, it seems I need to be in the right state of mind to be able to enjoy it and what better than a comfy blanket, a cup of tea and a scented candle to set the mood right. We´re already planning our next year´s trips, so stay tuned! Meanwhile I walk down on memory lane now and then and today it was Santorini. 😉 Enjoy!
Thought I´d throw in a couple of pictures of my adopted country in good weather, since it started snowing today and it got me into a seriously bad mood. To think I was sure the spring was already here! I´m so good at deceiving myself!;-)
