We celebrate Christmas Eve, so on Christmas Day we had a leftover lunch on the balcony.


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.


The circle of friends is expanding

My BF and I have a close circle of friends consisting of a couple that’s getting married this summer, a guy who we’ve both known since we were teenagers and this last one who has been single for quite some time, but who recently introduced us to his girlfriend! This might not seem like a big deal, but trust me, it is. He has often said that the day he introduces us to a girl then it’s serious. Like introducing a girl to one’s parents-serious!

We’ve started this tradition that we all celebrate New Years Eve together, and this New years Eve, we were talking about how the table might look like in 2 and 10 years from now. Our hope is that two years from now we’ll need two more seats for the two guys’ girlfriends, and 10 years from now, a really long table to fit our hopefully expanded families:-)

So now I’m on the subway, on my way downtown to meet up with them and my BF for a meal and some pints at our favourite Irish pub. Isn’t nice when your close friends finds their special one? I think it’s awesome!

Waiting for the Subway

I’m back! I know I’ve been away for a couple of weeks, but once my exam was finished, Christmas had arrived. So instead of fussing about and writing random posts, I decided to have myself a merry little Christmas. But fear not! The blog was not forgotten. I brought my camera with me and took a lot of pictures that I’m going to share with you. I also have a delicious chocolate cupcake recipe to share! At this very moment I’m on the subway, on the way home, with my second new MacBook pro in the last 24 hours… I’ll tell you all about it later.

Making the most of one piece of clothing

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 ImageGoing out for dinnerImageA comfy everyday look, that can be used both at work and universityImage

What do you think? How would you make the most of one item of clothing?
