Take A Walk On The Wild Side…

Fashion, Lifestyle

ORANGE IS THE NEW BLACK…

Seems like autumn came early to London this year. No summer lasts forever, but a summer dress lasts a little longer when you pair it with a warm knit. I’m really trying to enjoy this time when you can still warm your face in the sun, because I know that in about two months I’ll be wearing my military thermal pyjamas and I’ll chatter my teeth and I’ll google ‘how to stay warm,’ and I’ll get great ideas like, ‘How do I adopt a husky?’ Let’s see what kind of adventure this next season will bring. I’m ready to take a walk on the wild side ; )

QUOTE OF THE DAY 

“Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking and don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart… you’ll know when you find it.” – Steve Jobs

NOTHING STAYS THE SAME…

And just like that the weather changed. Londoners strutted around in their bikinis one day and zipped up their winter jackets the next day. I’m so not ready to say goodbye to this summer, but that’s how the story goes; every summer ends every single year.

HOW GIRLS CAN HELP BUILD THE EMPIRE

Yesterday I heard about this 18-year old girl who’s training to become a captain on the Thames. Someday she wants to be the captain of an ocean liner. How cool is that! It made me think of this book called HOW GIRLS CAN HELP BUILD THE EMPIRE. It’s from 1912 and asks questions like, “Perhaps you don’t see how a mere girl can be of use to the Great British Empire?” Great question, right? But we can all rest assured because, “Girls can even be brave enough to shoot tigers, if they can keep cool.”  ; )

What I think about when I shop on sale…

Fashion, Lifestyle

YES OR NO?

Can I live without it?

Is it more than 10£?

Can I wear it in the wintertime?

Is it me?

Is it worth it?

Am I worth it?

Yeah, I’m worth it.

Is there enough space for it on the boat? (I frequently forget to ask myself that last question in the heat of the moment but hey, nobody’s perfect!)

WE NEED TO TALK ABOUT THAT GANNI SKIRT

Dear Law Of Attraction,

I’ve visualised wearing this skirt all summer. I’ve walked the streets as if I already own it. There’s space for it in my closet and I’m sending it one positive thought after another, because it would look really good with my blue bathing suit. (Please, see attached photo.)
Please, dear Law Of Attraction, my patience is about to run out. What more do I have to do? (Except paying for it of course, which is totally out of the question since we’re trying to save up for solar panels.)
Waiting in anticipation for your response dear Law Of Attraction.
Kind Regards

Cathrine

The Love Boat

“I’M NOT THAT KIND OF HIPPIE”

Husker dere den sangen fra TV-serien The Love Boat? Det var egentlig det jeg ville kalle båten den gangen vi kjøpte den, The Love Boat, men vi bestemte oss for å beholde båtens originale navn, Butterfly. I begynnelsen følte jeg ikke at jeg var den typen dame i det hele tatt, som kunne bo i en båt so het Butterfly. “Jeg er ikke den type hippie,” tenkte jeg. Men man kan venne seg til mye…

Do you remember that song from the TV-series, The Love Boat? That’s actually what I wanted to call the boat when we bought it, The Love Boat, but we decided to keep the original name, Butterfly. In the beginning I felt like I wasn’t that kind of woman at all, who could live on a boat called Butterfly. “I’m not that kind of hippie,” I thought. But then you change…
