Secondhand belt and african dress | Lindex sandals
This was my second time to visit Tanzania, and I believe it won’t be my last. I’m in love with this country, with it’s hospitality, friendliness and warm hearts. Not least do they have amazing nature and culture there, that I feel lucky to have gotten the opportunity to learn more about. I’ve been living in village areas in Tanzania and Kenya, seen Lake Victoria, traveled on safari through Serengeti, and had some days in Arusha, one of the larger cities in Tanzania, and in Nairobi – the capitol city of Kenya. I have so many stories to tell, and fond memories that I keep close to my heart.
I purchased this african dress two years ago, the last time I visited Tanzania. I’m very fund of it. It’s also perfect to wear there as the light cotton makes it feel less hot, and the dress is in an appropriate length. This picture was shot inside Serengeti national park, by the hippo pool.
Fun with such a great response for the KappAhl giveaway. I’ve randomly picked two winners, by using a random number generator. The winners are Ida H., who get to choose a set of underwear, and Chalotte who will recieve a goodiebag. Congratulations! You will recieve a mail during the following days with details.
These pictures were shot after biking 8 kilometers on a rocky road in the savanna, with a gorgeous view at the Devils gate in Nairobi. After that we went hiking up and down mountains, and climbed in waterfalls to see the devils bedroom. I’ll show more pictures from that later. It was an amazing experience. In the first picture I’m very excited to have come out of it all alive. Haha. Hello gym!
Photos by me
In Nairobi there are beautiful flowers to be seen everywhere, on the ground, in the trees, in bushes. The tree outside of where we stay is such a stunner. All the pictures in this post are from that tree. First one looking up from the ground, and third portraying the leaves lying underneath it. Sadly I won’t get to see this again, as we leave for Kisumu today. I’m looking forward to new adventures though.
As I told you, I’m hosting a giveaway in collaboration with KappAhl, where one of you will get a set of underwear by your own choice designed by the author of Fifty Shades of Grey (as seen on these photos). Another one of you will recieve a goodiebag. All you need is to comment on this post before sunday, answering this question:
What is the name of the author behind Fifty Shades of Grey?
I will pick a random winner from the comment field. Don’t forget to leave your e-mail address and name, so that we can get in touch with you if you are picked out :)
Unknown headscarf | H&M man tee | Gina Tricot skirt | Secondhand purse | Lindex sandals
With a major sunburn on my forehead it was a good occasion to bring out my head scarf. I love the colors of it. I was also flaming red on my shoulders and around my neck, so I wore the tee I had with a narrow neckline. Apart from food poisoning and sunburn, Nairobi is great so far. There are a lot of things to see and experience here, and the warm climate is perfect for a summer-loving person like me. Friday we’re heading over to Kisumu, which I look forward to. I’ve never seen Lake Victoria before, which is the largest lake in Africa.

I’m in Nairobi, for the second time. This time to study intercultural communication. The last few weeks I’ve been working my ass off with assignments and travel preparations. A couple of days ago I was finally done, packed my bag and came here with my class.
Yesterday we went to Kibera, the second largest slum in Africa, where more than a million people live in extreme poverty. Though the people live under such circumstanses I also experienced a lot of joy and laughter there. But there was also sadness.
I’ve been changing the last year, and been feeling a lot on how this blog can’t continue to just be about fashion anymore, as that don’t completely reflect who I am. I was for a long time concidering to quit. But I figured that I find a lot of value in sharing. So it is time to share something different. Therefore I will more often present to you another one of my passions, which is photography, in addition to fashion. I hope you will enjoy that as well.
KappAhl Fifty Shades of Grey underwear line
I’ve been asked to be ambassador of the new cooperation between Kapp Ahl and the author of Fifty Shades of Grey. Together they have come up with a new line of sexy underwear that will be launched in stores tomorrow.
I will be hosting a give-away on the blog, where one of my readers will recieve an optional set from the line, but more on that later.
Cubus necklaces | H&M suede jacket
Close-up of two 2013 favorites, shot some time during spring. The suede jacket is a treasure from 2009, but I started wearing it for real this year. The necklaces have followed many of my outfits this year. I’m kind of addicted to how good they look together, and want to wear them with everything. So typical me, to overwear something for a period of time, neglecting to rotate with the other stuff I have.
Carlings leather jacket | Monki neon top | H&M jumpsuit | Secondhand belt | Zara boots | Pieces purse
An old look I’m pretty sure never got posted here. Sometimes a hint of neon is what you need to brighten up an all black look. It’s not the first and probably not the last picture I take here, in front of the cathedral in Kristiansand. I love the texture of the walls, with its moss green spots, and the old dark brown doors that can be found on all sides of the building. I’m in general a huge fan of any old building with history to it.

Wooowoowow. These bags are too cool for words. Haha. They look like cartoon bags in photos, but are real. And I need one. Add to Christmas wishlist – check!

Three shades of denim today, just for fun. And a looot of wind, and funny faces, with hair flying everywhere. The wind suddenly came out of nowhere. I like this shot though, and the energy in it.
I have tons of stuff to do these days. My head is spinning with all the things I need to remember and do. I’m making notes everywhere, frightened to forget something. And when I’m finally done I’m basically on the first plane to Kenya, where I’m spending three weeks before heading to Tanzania one week. Suddenly it’s christmas. Haha. I love living a hectic life, but I try to take pauses to just really appreciate everything going on in my life, trying to make the days memorable.
…on this day I had shorter blonder hair. I had recently moved, from my job, studies and friends, in seek of something new. I lived in Oslo, near the royal park, where these pictures were shot. I had no idea what the future would bring, if I were to get a new job, or if I’d make any new friends, but I knew that was in the right place. It all worked out. I have a lot of good memories from the year that passed, and some bad, but somehow I’ve grown a lot. Now I’m back, in Kristiansand with my family and friends to finish my studies. And I feel like I’m in the right place again, for now. That’s what’s so exciting about life. It constantly changes, our needs change. We don’t know what’s coming behind the next turn, whether if it’s something good, or bad. But in the end it always somehow works out.

I’ve had bomber cravings for a year now, starting with the one from Carin Wester that was all over the internet. This fall the bombers are everywhere to be found. Right before investing in one of them, I cleaned my closet, and found one from my early teens that I had forgotten. My affordable favorites from this year are the ones from Monki, Cubus (bottom row) and Vivikes.

H&M hat and skirt | Gina Tricot knit | Cheap Monday boots | Pieces purse
Basically I do the oposite of the usual. Instead of wearing similar outfits, and change accessory and shoes, I wear the same accessory and shoes, and change my outfits around them. Haha. I still keep my shoes and purses in boxes and bags after moving. Most of them are summer shoes though. As I live in this place temporary I haven’t bothered to unpack yet. Yeah yeah, nothing wrong about that though. But I feel like breaking the habit soon. Another thing I live in these days are chunky turtle neck knits. They are too comfy and warm not to choose.
