FEELGOOD

Although London is nowhere as cold as Oslo, today was definitely chilly. The annual family Christmas shopping took place this weekend, and so a compulsory walk around Camden Town was necessary this Sunday afternoon. We had our lunch at Lock 17 bar (I think it is called) - BBQ Burgers and Chips, mmm










































Slouching in the sofa. I must have skipped the 'stand/sit up straight' lecture most people have in their childhood. Too busy shopping acid printed trousers and tops with comments like VIP (very important princess) on maybe?

PLAIN SILVER RINGS


These three rings I dug out from an old jewelry box at home. However, they are merely substitutes for what I really want. Thin silver, or maybe even gold (?) rings, one for each finger!

WAY HECTIC TIMES

Taking a quick break from uni work to post some pictures from yesterday, (sorry only brought my Iphone!) whilst listening to the brand new Skrillex remix of Levels, originally by Avicii - my definite favorite song. You really do not wanna know how many of the DJ's out here I have begged to play it and how over-the-top happy I get on the dance floor when they finally cave - now that it is officially released they seem less reluctant to play it.  I urge you to go check it out on Youtube asap if you haven't yet heard it!
This outfit is from the well deserved trip to the pub last night. I love the Christmassy homy feeling going on in there. I am wearing snakeprint trousers I got back in Norway a couple of months back, vintage belt, blouse and blazer and Acne coat. 
These two pictures somehow remind me of my 'how I met your mother' dream - to have my very own hangout in a pub somewhere... at least it is partly fulfilled, for now.

I LIVE IN LONDON NOW.


Having tea (hot chocolate in my case, always hot chocolate, it seems to be the only thing I drink) at the Vintage Emporiums Cafe. It is an absolute if you're ever around Liverpool Street Station, or wondering around Brick Lane. To be fair, the whole area is worth a visit if you ask me. My recommendation to you! This is the world of second hand and vintage lovers that are not necessarily looking for special designers, but an amazing selection of clothes (both good and not so good) at bargain prizes. Look out for signs of popup vintage markets! 
This was the first time I proudly got to parade around in my new knit jumper that my mother made me! Throughout the day she kept enthusiastically pointing out all the different types of knit, always letting me know that my one was much harder to make. Apparently I always find the hardest patterns, or maybe that was it: There was no pattern. Just Zoe's ol' imagination and vague description of what she wants.

OLAF RYES PLASS

Out on a farewell dinner. In just two short weeks I am moving London. My feelings at the moment are a cocktail of the absolute terrifying sort, with a twist of rising excitement.  Anyway, enough about that. We decided that for this particular occasion my favorite restaurant Vila Paradiso would be perfect! It really is fantastic.
