BUT DON’T SETTLE FOR LESS…

Here’s a nice quote by Nelson Mandela: “There is no passion to be found playing small – in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.

Happy Birthday Norway!

RED, WHITE AND BLUE 

Gratulerer med dagen!

The French have The Bastille Day, Americans have 4th of July, the Irish have St.Patricks day and the Norwegians have their 17th of May. I’ve often been asked what’s up with the Norwegians and their flag? And the first things that come to my mind are A: Freedom and B: The party is where the flag is. Wish you all a happy 17th of May! PS: This is a day where you’re allowed to eat as many hot dogs and as much ice cream as your stomach can handle ; )

London’s most popular shoe

GUCCI DREAMS

Jeg ser disse skoene gå rundt med den ene damen etter det andre i gatene her i London og jeg har sååå lyst på. ‘Law of attraction’ sier at man tiltrekker seg det man tenker på, så kanskje disse plutselig går til døren min hvis bare jeg tenker hardt nok? ; ) Lov å håpe ; ) Kan kjøpes her.

These shoes are walking around with one lady after another here in London and I want them really baaadly. ‘Law of attraction’ says that you attract what you think about, so maybe these will walk to my door if I think hard enough? ; ) One is allowed to hope ; ) Can be bought here.

GANNI SKIRT AND ZARA SHOES

Jeg tenker på veldig mange viktige ting for tiden, som dette omslagsskjørtet fra Ganni. Kanskje jeg skal selge båten uten at kjæresten vet det og shoppe litt? (Sjekker bare om kjæresten leser bloggen min ; ) Shortsen kan kjøpes her.

I think about a lot of really important things these days, like this wrap skirt from Ganni. Maybe I should sell the boat without telling my boyfriend and just go shopping? (Just checking if he’s reading my blog ; ) The shorts can be bought here.

SLOW AND STEADY WINS THE RACE

HURRY SLOWLY 

For tiden øver jeg meg i kunsten å skyndte seg langsomt. Det ville jo være fantastisk hvis man kunne dele seg i to, tenke med tre hoder, skrive med fire armer og galloppere gjennom gatene som en god arbeidshest, eller som han faunen i Narnia, men det kan jeg ikke. Det jeg kan gjøre er å gå, steg for steg og passe på at jeg ikke snubler på veien.

I’m totally practising the art of hurrying slowly. It would be great to split in half, to think with two heads, write with four arms and gallop through the streets like a good workhorse or like that faun in Narnia, but I can’t, but I can walk, step by step and make sure that I don’t stumble on the way.

When you can’t go to CHANEL…

OH LA LA 

Er jeg den eneste som så CHANEL showet og kunne ønske jeg hadde den båten, La Pausa? Ikke misforstå, jeg elsker båten vår Butter. Hun har ført oss gjennom tykt og tynt og kommer nok til å gjøre det i noen år til, men en yacht, en dutch barge, et skip, oh la la, that’s the future! Jeg sparer til en større båt, så kan ikke handle CHANEL… får vel løpe tilbake til jobb da, så fremtiden kan skje fyllest.

Am I the only one who saw the CHANEL show and wish I had that boat, La Pausa? Don’t get me wrong, I totally love our narrowboat, Butter. She has taken us through thick and thin and probably will for a few more years, but a yacht, a big barge, a ship, oh la la, that’s the future! I’m saving up for a bigger boat so can’t shop CHANEL. Guess I better run back to work, to make my future happen.

Powerdays

GIRL POWER – POWER GIRL

Planen var at skoene skulle få snakke for seg selv i dag. Høyre fot sier GRL, venstre fot sier PWR og begge føttene skriker GRL PWR, men av en eller annen grunn fikk jeg aldri det bildet hvor benene ikke var i kryss. Girl power, power girl, potato, potato ; ) Håper dere har hatt en fiiin dag der ute.

I wanted to let my shoes speak for themselves in today’s post. Right foot says GRL, left foot says PWR and both feet scream GRL PWR, but for some reason I never got that picture where my legs weren’t crossed. Girl power, power girl, potato, potato ; ) Hope you’ve had a good day out there.

I JUST WANNA ROCK’N ROLL ALL NIGHT & GO SHOPPING EVERY DAY

Ser det ikke ut som om denne røde vesken bringer mye gøy med seg? Det var det første jeg tenkte da jeg så den. Jeg har tilmeldt meg nyhetsbrevet til & Other Stories og de har så mye lekkert! Helt klart det beste nyhetsbrevet jeg får i postkassen et par ganger i uken. Ble helt forelsket i denne røde vesken. Hjertet sier ja, men lommeboken sier nei. Har du lyst og råd så kan den kjøpes her. Og skal du til London for å shoppe så anbefales & Other Stories butikken ved Oxford Circus. Flust med fristelser…

Doesn’t it look like this bag comes with a lot of fun? That’s the first thing I thought when I saw it. I’ve signed up for the newsletter from & Other Stories and they have so many amazing things! Absolutely the best newsletter I get in my mailbox a couple of times per week. Fell completely in love with this red bag. My heart says yes, but my wallet says no. If you want it then you can find it here. Totally recommend the & Other Stories shop by Oxford Circus. Plenty of temptations…

MY OUTDOOR OFFICE

Noen ganger må en jente ta kontoret med utenfor. Dette været! Jeg skal ikke klage på forkjølelsen og jeg skal i hvert fall ikke klage over å jobbe på en Søndag, for når man jobber frilans, som jeg gjør, så er det faktisk noe av det beste som finnes – disse søndagene, i solen, utenfor med en kald lemonade og kosedressen kombinert med den dyreste jakken jeg har i skapet, som jeg kjøpte den gang jeg kom til London og drømte om hvordan fremtiden skulle bli. Not bad. Not bad at all.

Sometimes a girl needs to bring her office outside. This weather! I’m not going to complain about my cold and I’m certainly not going to complain about working on a Sunday, because when you work as a freelancer, like I do, this is one of the best parts – these Sundays, in the sun, outside with a cold lemonade and the cozy trousers and the most expensive jacket I have in the closet, which I bought when I came to London and dreamt about what the future would be like. Not bad. Not bad at all.
