Gift ideas 2018

Christmas is around the corner, I’m done with most of my presents, so I can enjoy the rest of the advent socializing and baking. I want to make biscotti and espresso cookies, the traditional Romanian babka, lemon curd, Christmas chutney and sugarcoated almonds. What can’t you do without for the holidays?

Great Party

Last week was very intense and, as it usually happens with me when things pile up, it left me half dead. So this week I’ve been napping 2-3 hours a day on the days I could and otherwise gone through the motions with either a headache or a yawn. But hey, freelance life, getting on top of my finances and weekend studies, who said it was going to be easy?

Anyways, here I am, all the sashimi stash waiting in the kitchen, beer in the fridge and the man on his way home, how could I complain? Besides it’s Friday and tomorrow I’m hosting a party, God knows we all need a party from time to time, if not for the drinks, at least for the heels! 😉figmascarponetartsqdrizzle Continue reading

Vintage Jewelry I want

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! 383741-e46ab0ceabc24d6aa55966e7ec21757a Continue reading

Changes around the Apartment

Those of you who know me, or have followed my blog for a while, have gathered that I’m a lazy part-time diva, not handy at all and with an insatiable appetite for luxurious interiors. And now I’m in a terrible mess, with getting divorced and all and when it doesn’t kill me, it tears me apart.

That being said, I work for 5 and refuse to succumb to the dreary realities of life and in the end I’ll be all right. One lovely day, as they say in Norwegian. 😉

In the meantime, if I am to sell the apartment, it’ll need some changes. I’m going to straighten it up a bit, if you know what I mean. I need an electrician and all sorts of other stuff, but I won’t bore you with any of it, it’s the interior I enjoy buying.Skjermbilde 2016-11-21 12.35.51.png Continue reading

Second love

For all of you, lovers of vintage and mid-century design, I have a secret to share: Second Love from Bergen! ❤ It´s the kind of stylish, refined shop I´d run myself, if I was that much into sales and people, a perfect mix of high-end designer wear, Norwegian 70´s classics and hand-crafted products. IMG_8093 Continue reading

Rainy Bergen

One of the good things about being a freelancer, besides taking a nap and baking cupcakes at noon once in a blue moon, is that I get to travel to places I haven´t been before or, even better, places I love already! ❤IMG_8073.jpg Continue reading

Shopping in Copenhagen

Shopping in Copenhagen is definitely more fun than in Oslo! I had a tight budget this time, but that didn´t stop me from scoring a few scoops nonetheless! 😉 It´s tight budgets that set creativity loose, right?

I loved this place- Studio Travel Vintage, which I stumbled upon in the heart of Copenhagen, in a desperate attempt to locate last year´s gem, that had unfortunately closed its doors in the meantime. I´m sucker for high-end vintage, minimalist presentation and good service and this place had all of the above! I´d rather pay twice as much as in a regular store if somebody does the selection beforehand, so I don´t have to spend hours hunting for treasures. The choice was easy here, they had many cashmere sweaters and I found a lovely V-neck one in black, that will probably be a favourite for years and years.  IMG_7606 Continue reading
