Yes, I travel. I study abroad. I see new places. But home will always be home. Questions about how life could be if different choices were made keep popping up in my head. Yet, I do not find myself missing out on anything. People do not really change. Those who were there every time I […]
They call it the mini version of Amsterdam. Narrow streets, charming channels and historical architecture. It amazes me how well kept some buildings and memories are. Events and occurrences from so many hundreds of years ago still live on through stories and monuments. It makes me wonder how stories and memories of our generation will […]
Cloudy. That pretty much sums up the weather on an average day in the Netherlands. At least to my experience. I know the sun is up there somewhere, hiding behind all these ridiculously cloudy clouds. Maybe, If I am really lucky, I can spot a glimpse of a few sun rays. And what a unique […]
I got a bike by now. So I can actually go places other than school and the city centre.
Yes, all of a sudden I live my life in Rotterdam in The Netherlands. And I will be living here for the next three years if everything goes as planned. Two months have passed already, and I have yet to find myself a bike. I’ve been told it’s a sinn to live in The Netherlands […]
Funny story; I have previously expressed my difficulties with having my hair cut or changed in any way. It’s just terrifying. Luxury problem, I know. So, while visiting the Erasmus University I have also attended a few “events” at the University’s fashion seminar. One of them was the Toni&Guy (hairdressing brand, in case you didn’t […]
I have to say, I wish it was a bit warmer and less windy. But besides from that, I did not expect this city to be this nice. It’s beautiful. Last time I was by myself in a foreign city I was in Milan for fashion week last year. Milan was nice, sure. Fashion week […]
Macarons. Those delicate sweet little things. My mind brought back memories of poor results from the past instantly as I decided to give it another try. Maybe I have finally learned just how much gentle care and preciseness those delicate little things demand. I know they are just sweets and it’s not really that big […]
Happy sunny sunday, Greeting the lovely 13 degree weather with clothes of comfort and lightness. This is the kind of weather that makes you happy for absolutely no other reason than just that. Happy weather, happy mind. And so I hope the season of drowning in sweathers and heavy coats and ichy scarves is over […]

Jenny Skavlan is the sewing expert and Second-hand clothing hero here in Norway. And just the other day I was browsing through her page for some inspiration and came across the easiest way to create a summer blouse. I did not execute the project as well as I should have. But in 30 minutes this […]
..No I’m kidding. Though it feels like it. I have pretty much had the same hair color and hair length all my life. I am the girl who dreads going to the hairdresser even just for a trim. Leaving my hair in someone else’s hands with scissors is the scariest thing. So when I even […]
I am thrilled and so excited to be back on my sewing machine! If you’re anything like me you probably know how awful it feels to trow away old clothes. A few years back a friend and I got really into designing and sewing dresses. Design is fun and all, but then second-hand started to […]
Imagine a group of people. There’s a girl who clearly raises her voice when she talks. She needs more than one person’s attention at a time. She likes to talk about herself and her accomplishments and hates when someone outshines her. She is used to being center of attention and can’t handle it when she’s […]
Among the most difficult questions you can ask me starts with “what is your favorite..?”. I guess most people asume that nearly everyone has a favorite color, a favorite food or a favorite drink. A favorite anything. At least a preference. Yes of course I have a preference, but I will rarly say anything is […]
