Easter is finally here and it couldn’t have come any sooner! I’ve been busting my ass off lately, traveling here and there, planes and trains and cars and busses and what not. I really need some time off, sunny days filled with good food and drink, walkies with Sammy, dosing off in front of our new favourite series- Hotel Beau Séjour- and painting around the house. I’m finally selling after the holidays and I need all the help I can get from a fresh coat of paint and newly washed windows. I was about to write “if you feel like helping out”, but then I realised what I need most is some people detox. Haha! Too much socializing in my line of work, they end up eating you alive!
There hasn´t been much sign of spring in Oslo yet, but yesterday I could smell it for the first time, through my bedroom window, as I´m lying in bed down with a cold.
Spring always gets me in the mood for a change and since change is all I´ve been through lately, now I´ll concentrate on the harmless changes, like a seasonal wardrobe and the likes. Continue reading
My love story with the fabulous Louboutin shoes began 4 years ago when I was interpreting in a 3 months’ long human trafficking case in Bergen. I would pass by a luxury store on my way “home” to the hotel every single day and drool on a particular pair-beige Oxfords with laces. Until I had to buy them one day, and they’re still my most outrageous treat, to this day! 😉 Continue reading
Well Christmas is not here yet and I hope it never comes. My life is a complete mess for the time being, but dreaming of clothes is therapy, right?!
So if I were invited to a New Year´s Party, I would be wearing this:
Sequin dress- Tom Ford
This whole trip to Copenhagen was a spontaneous thing to attend Pizzie´s 50th birthday party yesterday. It was a genuine experience, like few others in my life. I have to start by stating I´m no party person, I seldom dance, I´m a bit shy when it comes to conversation with new people, I don´t drink that much and I don´t smoke, either. I enjoy sitting on a couch and find a couple of persons to chit chat with, while drinking bubbles. 😉
I discovered this gem the other day and just had to share it with you! 😉 I love supporting artisan handcraft and this is the perfect opportunity- an online store solely with African products! KISUA means “well-dressed person” is Swahili and intends to promote the finest designers of the African continent for an international buyers´ market.
If you haven´t heard of them yet, listen here and listen good! 😉 I love this brand since it manages to merge continental style with Scandinavian simplicity in a way that makes me want all their shoes! I particularly like their sandals, which is why I chose to write about them in the first place.
ATP ATELIER – All Tomorrow’s Parties, was founded in 2010 by old friends Jonas Clason and Maj-La Pizzelli. They first met in the late 80’s at legendary Swedish fashion brand and retail stores Gul & Blå. Although they admired each other´s sense of style, they worked in different arenas for 20 years and then met again when the time was just right.
