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.
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!

A successful day of drawing, eating hotdogs, admiring flowers, painting my nails and well enjoying the company of the people I love the most.
The past weekend I have spent up at the mountains. Living in Norway has somewhat made me immune to the beauty of our nature. The last days it all came back to me. I can definitely say that I enjoy and appreciate what nature has to offer. Blueberries, raspberries, fishing, hiking and beautiful mountainsides draped with astonishing waterfalls violently pushing thousands of liters into the river every day.
I should probably mention, as it might confuse, that what I am wearing in the first picture is hardly ideal for long fishing trips. Our serious fishing day was Saturday and I will assure you that I was covered in rain clothes as the pouring rain made us look more like drowning cats than anything else.
Out on a walk in my Isabel Marant sneakers. The background for this particular purchase was my need for a pair of comfortable walking shoes now that I am heading to London for uni. A somewhat sensible person might dismiss my arguments supporting the comfort of the shoes the minute they discover they have a built in wedge heel. The beauty, if one would ask me, is that the heel is unnoticeable which in my book equals awesome! But I guess it might not in your book, so in the lack of better words: Shut it.
Sooo, as you have probably understood - I caved. Which means that I bought the Isabel Marant dress. I figured it can double as a day as well as a boogie-all-night dress, or something of the sort anyway!

Out and about on a lovely Saturday. A second trip to a local shop, and I once again tried to convince myself that the flannel dress by Isabel Marant is perfect for Autumn. At this point the only thing of interest is to see how long I can fight it of. Before I again come to my senses - and cave.
I know I look more than a little uncomfortable on the Skateboard - and that is quite right. But how cool is it, really? Brilliant!
