Noah`s way of protesting me leaving. He does this everytime I`ve packed my suitcase.
It`s not the best quality on the pictures, but it`s so nice to have something to look at now that I`m back in cold winter-Norway.
I’m in the final stage of composing my essay on the female struggle in 19th century America. Soon, I’ll be done and the holidays can finally begin! Can’t wait! Until then I’ll probably be chugging down yet another diet coke.
When I went shopping the other day, I was looking for a nice top that I could use on Christmas but also on other occasions, as it`s such a waste for me to buy beautiful dresses that`ll only be worn once a year. In addition, I`m also one of those who freeze all the time. I`ve often been seen covered by a blanket on a summer`s day! Which is why I prefer using a pair of nice pants or a skirt combined with a nice top on special occasions. As you already know I did find one beautiful, budget friendly, blue sequin top with a 3/4 sleeve; which got me thinking about different ways of wearing it, with an emphasis on everyday use. So I found a similiar looking top on Polyvore and played around for a little while and here`s the result.
Special occasion; this is how I intend to use the top on Christmas Eve Going out for dinnerA comfy everyday look, that can be used both at work and university

What are your goals for this Christmas?
The other day I had some leftover melted chocolate from making Homemade Bounty bars; and thought it would be a shame to throw it out. I took a good look into my cupboards and that`s when I found a container with walnuts. Enter idea. Why not mix the walnut with the chocolate and then sprinkle some sea salt? It turned out amazing! the texture of the walnut combined with the sweet chocolate, and the addition of sea salt. Oh my, that`s good! It`s the easiest thing to do; it really is a frugal, budget-friendly treat. And to make things even better. I could use the tin container the walnut was originally in, to keep the treats. I`ll actually be taking these with me tomorrow, when I`m leaving the country. With the tin container having a plastic lid, it`ll be easy to handle and they won`t get damaged in my cabin luggage.
Melt chocolate/or use already melted, mix with walnuts, spread it out on a tray or a pan. sprinkle sea salt. put it in the fridge for a couple of hours. Then break it up in suitable pieces. Voila! bon appetit!
and if you`re wondering, yes, “valnøtter” is Norwegian for walnuts!
