Can we make spring arrive a little bit faster please???

  
Yesterday was the coldest registered day in Trondheim the last 52 years with -24,3 degrees celsius!!!

Norwegian Forest White by Cathrine Kullberg

  
Cathrine Kullberg had great success whit her first models of Norwegian Forest, and has just launched her new model that is colored white, which looks stunning! The material is plywood and the texture of the surface is unlike any lamp I have ever seen. And I definitely like what I see!!!    

A Dream Within A Dream by Edgar Allan Poe


Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
Thus much let me avow-
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream;
Yet if hope has flown away
In a night, or in a day,
In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.

I stand amid the roar
Of a surf-tormented shore,
And I hold within my hand
Grains of the golden sand-
How few! yet how they creep
Through my fingers to the deep,
While I weep- while I weep!
O God! can I not grasp
Them with a tighter clasp?
O God! can I not save
One from the pitiless wave?
Is all that we see or seem
But a dream within a dream?

The Brothel by the norwegian artist Susanne Sundfør is pure perfection in my ears... Words can´t describe how I feel about this song, it is truly a masterpiece!

Leeds Metropolitan University

  

Today I got accepted at Leeds Met... I AM SO INCREDIBLY HAPPY!!! This is what I have been working for so hard, and finally all the effort paid off. Tonight I´ll go to bed with a BIG smile on my face:) 

Burberry Prorsum: London Fashion Week 2010

I have a confession to make...

     

... I have a serious addiction to jewelry! The pictures shows a small selection of my things, and that contains everything from vintage pearls to plastic bracelets. The thing is that I just can´t get enough of it, and I think that a nice watch or a necklace can bring an outfit to an even higher dimension. My jewelry is definitely a very important part of me and my style.

Valentine Cupcakes

 
I hope that every single one of you have had a wonderful Valentines Day!

Sadly my boyfriend is on a golf trip in Spain... but I have been very lucky this weekend because I have had my friend Sissel visiting me from Bergen. We´ve just had a relaxing weekend enjoying each others company, and today she baked cupcakes that I decorated :)

I hope some day I will find the time to learn how to play the piano, and when I do I would also want to dress up in a sequined ball gown like this girl. It looks kind off nice, doesn´t it?

More nails

 

I´ve had these nails for about 2-3 weeks now, and I have refilled them once. The quality of these nails are much better than the system I used last time. It is better to work with the gel and acrylic powder and they are much stronger to. I enjoy doing my nails and I feel much more of a woman when I have beautiful nails :) The kit I used is by Kiss and the price is 269 NOK ( bought it at Cubus)

M + E


       
As mentioned earlier I don´t have any paintings on my walls, only a wall sticker. But I do have photos of the people I love, and frames from here and there... and everywhere! :)
The letters M and E symbolizes my boyfriend and me (It is the first letter in our names). I bought these at http://www.corneliashus.no/ which is my favorite interior shop here in Trondheim! When it comes to the frames I cannot remember where all of them are from (some of them are gifts), but mostly from the shops Black & White and Kremmerhuset. I have been collecting frames for a while you see. The sign is also from Kremmerhuset, and I think it´s just so cute. I love animals and flowers so I just had to buy this one! 

Magdalena Frackowiac by Josh Olins

      

The cover girl Magdalena Frackowiac wears these beautiful gowns from the Victor & Rolf collection for the cover story of Dazed and Confused. The title of this collection is "The Amsterdam Chainsaw Massacre", funny title isn´t it? ;) Styling done by Katie Shillingford and photos by the skilled Josh Olins.
I love the way Victor & Rolf has been working with the layers in the dresses, and the sculptural look of it. It looks kind of "broken" but yet very beautiful at the same time. It´s a bold design and it looks just so good on pictures... I love it!
