So I made this amazing galette last week, but it didn’t turn out as pretty as today, which is why I had to wait to share the recipe with you. I found it here and I only dropped the salt caramel, although I had more than a week to find the time to make it, but either I didn’t have enough butter, a clean pan or the disposition for it, ’cause it never materialized.
There are few things I love more than my mother country in summer. The poppy fields, lounging with bubbles in a beer garden, visiting my grandma in the countryside and eating all kinds of fruit straight from the source, coffee breaks with my friends, dinners with my family, the sweet scent of linden and honeysuckle, children playing in the parks, to name a few.
I’m not very good at wearing jewellery, from time to time I have periods when I crave it and then long time lapses before I can be bothered again. But I’m like a magpie, I love to collect everything shiny and glitzy, to soothe my eyes on them. As I wrote a couple of days ago, I’ve just discovered a shop with lots of cool vintage stuff and a clean profile-VAAR, meaning spring in Norwegian. And I simply adore their jewellery!

If you still have a couple of days of holiday left and you don’t know where to go, you should see Oslo in the fall, before the snow sets in. It’s so pretty! Walking around with Sam today, before parting with him for another week, I decided to take my camera with me, risking to look like a hobo with a fancy lens, and capture the neighbourhood’s bonhomie.

I hope Christmas finds you well and the holiday spirit lifts you up. Thought I share some lovely pictures from the winters past, since this one is grey and wet.
Sunday equals brunch and what better way to start your day than with an all American feast? We met my friend Kristin, her American husband and their two kids at Café Fedora in Frogner and had one of the yummiest brunches of all times! The long way there with an over-excited Sammy toggling along was worth it, even though the café itself is no big deal in terms of decor or cosiness (which score a lot of points with me). The service is friendly (Sam even got some bacon!), the coffee is good and the food is authentic, or so they say since I haven´t been to the US yet. 😉
I´m working on a two days case on this island in the middle of Norway and I find myself hoping it was summer and that I had a whole week off to explore it like I should! (not that I have a driving license, but still!) Hitra is just stunning! The nature is unlike everything I´ve ever seen before (I might be exaggerating, but you should know it´s not intentional, I´m generally a grateful tourist!), the houses are cutie cute and I´ve seen both fish, sea urchins, a sea star and a deer! All that in just 1,5 days! 😉 Continue reading
These amazing nature photographs are taken by Lucia Bujor for the Facebook group called “273 places you have to see before you leave Romania”. They picture a fairytale-like landscape in Muntele Mic, Caransebes, when trees, grass, creaks and fences are covered in rime, just before winter sets in. I don´t know about you, but as much as I love white palm trees beaches, my heart skips a beat when I see images from home. Enjoy and let next year´s trip go to Romania!
ViSSEVASSE is run by Dorthe Mathiesen and Karsten Noel, two big names in fashion, scenography and graphics from Denmark. Their posters envision cities og landmarks in a nordic style, simple and alluring, reminiscent of the art deco era. You can purchase these beauties online, or you can try your local interior design store. I know I will!;-)
I love the Scandinavian approach to bedrooms, but I need to turn our bedroom into something more than just a place to sleep. I need some fresh flowers, some more storage and another night table. What do you think of those?
