Birthday Girl

March 10, 2018


Yesterday it was my birthday, and by far, it was the best one yet. I woke up to beautiful flowers ( from my husband) while later all my amazing friends in Oslo surprised me with balloons and sushi dinner at my place. It was the sweetest gesture, I was so very touched and once again, I was reminded how lucky I am to have them in my life. I am keeping the balloons all through the weekend, and probably as long as they will last, after all why not, waking up and walking in the living room makes me feel amazing while they are still there. Birthday weekend! A huge thank you to my most amazing friends, Elisabeth, Line, Emilie and Linda, and to my sweet husband for successfully keeping this a secret and arranging the surprise. I feel like the luckiest girl alive 🙂

I have been under the weather the last few days and with so many things to be finished before Stockholm design week I can feel the pressure of time already. If I haven’t answered your email yet please forgive me, I am trying to prioritize but work almost always gets first in line. Being the stylist, photographer, editor and PR manager for my company all in one person can be quite overwhelming somedays. If I haven’t mentioned it I really should hire an assistant, and the days that I have little time I feel it the most. I do realize that I cannot do everything however, taking some hours off during the day the best medicine. Lighting a candle ( new favorite from Diptyque the 34 collection which was created for their 50th anniversary ), is one of my go to relaxing methods, there will always be candles lit in my apartment regardless of the season. In fact one of my everyday routines is right after I get up from bed to go around and light some key position candles in the apartment , mainly bedroom windowsill , kitchen table and bathroom. Do try it, not just for the feeling of hygge, but you will immediately notice your mood change. 

I have a very busy week ahead along with preparation for Stockholm design fair, if any of your attend and recognize me do say hi!

At home with some of my favorite essentials

October 10, 2017


Since getting a bed in the bedroom (sneak peek of the bedroom)I feel the whole apartment has finally come together, it feels much more like home now than it did when I first moved in July. I love spending time in here now, and since I have been a little bit sick last few weeks I have been working from bed much more than I would normally do. I don’t have a speaker in Oslo for my bedroom so the new portable Beoplay P2 has become my best companion ( mine is in color Sand ). It doesnt have any controls on it, but tap it twice to pause any song ( double tap again to resume ) and shake it sideways to skip a song are all the controls I need 🙂  It also has a microphone so when I get calls I dont even need to pick up my phone! I always take it with me when I travel too, it is lightweight and then I can listen to music or podcasts or audio books while in my hotel room, its a win win. The sound is great as well for such a small speaker, it is now firmly on my essentials list.
To make the bedroom a little cosy, I like having a candle on the windowsill next to the bed (the bedroom has two big windows), and with some books and magazines, a mirror and a lamp the scene is almost complete.

On the window you might have noticed some products, they are from the Nuori face care line, the Perfecting face oil on the left and the Supreme moisture mask on the right. If you don’t know about Nuori already, apart from their super minimalistic design, what distinguishes them from other skincare is that their products are always fresh. Mine were mixed right before they were delivered and their ingredients are 100% natural. A lot of brands claim this to be true, but Nuori actually delivers, read more about it here if you want and I promise you , you will be converted. 

Last but not least my top favorite brand Aesop launched a new perfume! ( They are currently launching a new website , I will link to it as soon as it is up! ). When it comes to how it smells, you should really visit one of their stores, it is a little too masculine for me but I love how it smells on my other half 🙂

Salted Laccino

June 20, 2017


I have been trying to find a name for my favorite childhood drink that I still drink every morning to this date and I think finally I thought of one that seems very appropriate! I present you with Salted Laccino! It is really not complicated at all just warm up some milk,  add a pinch of sea salt and stir! My grandmother who lived in her farm would make it for me when I was really young, which is probably why I grew up thinking this is the way to drink your milk in the morning. She would get fresh goat milk and bring it to boil, adding a little bit of salt at the end. The way I prepare it is even easier, I just add milk and sea salt in the Nespresso frother and a few seconds later my morning drink is ready. During winter ( or a cold day ) I will have some sort of porridge while during warm days I will possibly skip the salted laccino and make a cold brew with milk instead. I am not big on breakfast, I prefer instead eating something an hour or two later. Again something I have been doing since I was very young, possibly because I would wake up so late to go to school, that I only had time for a rushed milk and then I would eat during breaks. Old habits die hard 🙂
