And I'm ready for anything..

Happy New Year! Or soon to be, that is. I will be spending it with my friends and some champagne.
Hope everyone has a great night, and a great new year!

Home, we're coming home again..

I suppose there's no doubt about who my style icon is. I love this outfit that she wore for a screening of Factory Girl when the movie was released. I've been dying for that sweater ever since..
Anywho, sorry about the abscence, but it is Christmas after all, and I seem to be all over the place these days. Also, I've decided to go back to Trondheim after Christmas instead of going back to Berkeley. I love California, but Trondheim is home.

Hope everyone's Christmas has been amazing!

2000 miles

Re-discovered this Christmas song the other day, and I love it. Even though Christmas Eve is over, I believe that Christmas lasts at least until New Years!

"I can hear people singing, it must be Christmas time"

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas

I went from this (Union Square in San Francisco) to back home where things aren't this big, but nevertheless just as beautiful and with snow. I am happy right now.

Money doesn't talk, it swears - Bob Dylan

I love harem pants, I love sequins which makes this the perfect combo! I will definetely be using these alot during Christmas. I went Christmas shopping in San Francisco today. San Fran is such a beautiful city, especially before Christmas. I will post some pictures later.

Sequined harem pants from H&M.

Slightly bad quality on the pictures, but oh well.. Me and my friend Randy walked through the streetfair in Telegraph today. I love streetfairs. Then we came across a booth selling these pendants, which had written the word "peace" i different languages. Since I'm from Norway I had to get one that said peace in Norwegian and English.
Now I'm on my last week of school before Christmas; tons to do, but I'm sort of enjoying myself, and preparing to go home.

lørdag 12. desember 2009

It's all coming back..

This is what I need right now; my own space, some peace and quiet, and the opportunity to do whatever I feel like. I am looking forward to going home for a while and relax, but I am coming back here, and it would be nice to come back to some sort of home. The apartment I have right now are waaaay too small for me and my roomie, so I suppose it is a living situation we need to figure out. I miss the feeling of loving to be home. Nevertheless, I am super busy with finals anyway, so I am basically living at school anyway. Maybe I should just bring a sleeping bag and move in here?!

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend. Peace.

This game called life

Russian beauty, that's what she is.

Sorry people, but all I can focus on these days are finals, and the fact that I'm soon going home. I love Berkeley, but right now I am so tired that I can barely function. I think that Christmas will be good for me.

mandag 7. desember 2009

Go to the land where the heaven aglow, go to the land of the troll and the snow..

I feel like this these days. And will continue with that until I go home.. A bit homesick and exams are a rather bad combination. But still, soon done, and then I'll go home for Christmas :D I am constantly listening to Christmas music right now, and kinda like to have exams (I know, I am a masochist), because it means that I have tons of stuff to do until I go home. Don't get me wrong; I love Berkeley, but there's no place like home, of course.


lørdag 5. desember 2009

And I sing to you that nothing really matters, and all you do is stand and cry..

Just got back from the movies (which can be pretty cold), so I wore simple jeans, my faux fur, and fringe boots. I've basically been like a zombie all day; I was out yesterday. I was supposed to go to a pre-party, and then go home, but that rarely ends up as planned.. So suddenly I was out and about, meeting people I haden't seen since the beginning of the semester, hanging out with friends, and having a great time. If only every day could be like that, but from no on I will have to concentrate on school, and then I am suddenly on a plane back home.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

This Too Shall Pass

I love, love, love this new necklace! I adore statement jewlery, so I kinda couldn't resist buying this one. I think this was my outfit on Tuesday. Can't really remember which day's which anymore, I basically do the same thing everyday; school, reading, writing.. Well, this weekend I will not even do anything close to school (hopefully). Thank God it's soon Christmas, cause I'm getting tired.
Wearing; necklace, thights, and tank top from H&M, denim shirt from BikBok, Scull ring from Topshop, bracelet from Forever21.

And We Are Not Saved

This was right before I ran out to get some lunch on Sunday, and I was originally supposed to show you guys my cute top. I like the bow. I am starting to take way more outfit posts than I used to, what do you guys think? Is that a good thing?
And no worries, the headline for the post is not about me going suicidal or thinking that the world will go under, it's simply a book I am reading for one of my classes here at Berkeley. It is really interesting, about the Civil Rights Movement and how it wasn't as successful as one would think.
I am so tired today, so I think I will go and buy a coffee, then start on my research paper. A few more assignments now, and then I am on my way home for Christmas!! At this point I am enjoying the small things, so that coffee will taste pretty damned good right about now.

mandag 30. november 2009

We are, we are the saints, we signed our life away. Doesn't matter what you think, we're gonna do it anyway.

I love this lace top, even though I sort of forget to use it. But I remembered on Saturday! I am still head over hills in love with pink lipstick, so I can rarely resist the urge to use it these days. Even though it's getting colder here, it's kind of funny, because it is just like fall at home. Which actually makes me appreciate the wheather the way it is right now. I like tucking myself into my scarf and go out and enjoy the sunshine and the beautiful colors that surrounds me.

The first duty of a revolutionary is to get away with it - Abbie Hoffman

So it's not quite similar to Sienna Miller's, but I am still pretty happy. I do like the military trend that is going on these days, so a winter coat in this style isn't half bad at all..

I am using my Sunday to write, read, and drink coffee. Not too fun, but it has to be done, I suppose.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Excuse me while I kiss the sky..

I've always had a thing about heavy jewlery. I just do not believe that less is more. So when I saw this gold necklace at Forever 21, I decided that I needed it to top the large pile of jewlery I already have. I was only studying today (plus yoga and a girls-night, of course), so I wore something as simple as an oversized tee and shiny thights.
Wearing; oversized tee from BikBok, necklace from Forever21, bikerjacket H&M, scarf Michael Kors.

Give thanks..

See, here's the problem; as long as I can pose, the picture is okay. It is in the second I actually has to stand still and smile to the camera, my entire face looks weird and stuff. But nevertheless, today was Thanksgiving, and this is the dress I wore. I love the party-vibe it has. It wasn't so cold outside today, so I could actually wear it with a blazer and a scarf. I like Thanksgiving.. All you basically do is eat and be grateful - two tasks I do very well!
Wearing; Dress from H&M, blazer from Gina Tricot, scarf from Michael Kors
Happy holiday's!!

Baby, it's cold outside..

I am sick, and basically full of drugs (prescripted ones; no worries), which explaines the pictures. And I realized that I will never be a model (because I am not skinny obviously), but also because I do NOT photograph well. Not good at all.. Anyway, the point here is that this is the AMAZING Michael Kors scarf I bought the other day. It is awesome; you can wear it as a scarf and as a hat as well. I love it. To be honest, I usually wear it only as a scarf, but when things get colder I might use the hat-thing as well.

mandag 23. november 2009

All my bags are packed, I'm ready to go..

...cause I'm leaving on a jetplane, don't know when I'll be back again. Okey, I know when I'll be back; Sunday. I am going to Florida for Thanksgiving, and I am not bringing my computer, so I won't be able to post anything this week. But I'll post when I come home on Sunday - promise. Now I have to pack. I have no idea what to bring!

Oh, and I will show you guys what's in the Michael Kors bag later. Let's just say there's no point in bringing the item to Florida.

Could it be you found another game to play..

Here I come, thinking that California is a warm place. I was WRONG! Apparently, there is a difference between North California and South, and since I am in the north, I basically went to where it's cold. If I had known that, I might have chosen a different place. Okay, maybe not.. I'm just complaining a bit, even though I have no reason. If I was back in Norway I would probably be way colder than I am here. After all, today I am actually wearing my leather jacket. However, I do have to wear my faux fur every now and then, especially at night time. Which I really do not mind. Red lips and faux fur was a part of my outfit yesterday.
Oh, and I am going to Florida next week for Thanksgiving! And I can't wait. It's supposed to be warmer there, so I might be able to wear some summer clothes, yet again. Joy.

torsdag 19. november 2009

That's the way it oughta be..

It's getting cold here! And I am in California! It makes no sense.. And it's sad. But, if I can find a military coat like Sienna's here, my winter just might be saved! Of course, I have my faux fur coat I bought at H&M earlier this fall as well (look at previous posts), but nevertheless; I need another coat too. I wouldn't exactly say no to the amazing Vivienne Westwood boots either.

Raindrops falling from heaven..

Since I actually managed (for once) to just come inside before the rain started, I will reward myself by drinking tea, reading the new ELLE, painting my fingernails white, and dancing around to Led Zeppelin in my new lace thights from H&M... at least I will do that until I realize that I have a huge assignment to write, and that I really should snap to it. But I'm kinda a last-minute-person anyway, so I have a feeling that the only thing I will be reading tonight is ELLE.

Hope everyone has a great night! Peace..

Living reflections from a dream..

So, I went to Jimmy Choo, but I basically refused to stand in a line, so I bought shoes at Forever21 instead. Not the same, I know. But nevertheless, these shoes are awesome, PLUS I got some clothes from Jimmy Choo as well. So I am pretty happy. I will post the Choo's later.

onsdag 11. november 2009

I got a nasty habit called rock n' roll..

This is an awful picture, but the point was the jacket. I bought it on sale at Urban Outfitters a couple of days ago, and it is seriously my new favorite jacket. I've regretted not bying the Acne jacket for a long time now, and even though this is not the Acne jacket, it has the same features.

Now, I have a problem. On saturday is the launch of Jimmy Choo for H&M, and I AM BROKE!! But I neeeeed something from this collection. I mean, seriously. But then again.. The next designer for H&M is Sonia Rykel, so maybe I should rather save up some money for that. .....but I still need Choo...

The Ultimate Glam

I love this sequined hat-thing. I bought it like a month ago, but I haven't worn it until today. Weird, I know. I guess I'm wearing it today because it's Sunday, which really is a sad day, and I am writing a midterm, so I figured out that some sequins might spark up my day. Also, I am more of the skinny jeans type of person, but the wide jeans you see in the picture is one of my favourites. I always use those to feel the hippie vibe.
I left Norway just when the Rachel Zoe Project started airing, so I've been watching all the episodes online the past week. I love that woman, she is amazing! Not to mention the great sense of style she has. Maybe my sunday outfit is a bit inspired by her?

fredag 6. november 2009

Strike up the band..

This Marchesa dress is amazing! And Katy Perry is stunning.. I'm in love (with the dress, that is).

I'm no fan of Leona Lewis, but I am a huge fan of Vivienne Westwood! This dress is gorgeous..
I love the MTV Awards, simply because there are so many amazing outfits. I never really see the award show, but I always watch the pictures.

Crazy times..

Sorry for the lack of updates, but I am in the middle of a midterm period again, which is wearing me out. In addition, there is about 100 other things that are wearing me out as well, and the funny thing is that it's not bothering me at all. I have this way of just saying "I'm done", and then I actually am done. So at this point I am actually quite positive.. Who knew I had it in me?!

In the streets of San Francisco..

Me and Elise, trying to capture everything that was going on in the background. Mission definetly NOT accomplished.
My fascination for buddha's continues..

You know you're in Haight Ashbury when there's a store called "Earthsong"

My frien Elise and I were bored on Friday, so we decided to spend the day in San Fran. We went to Golden Gate Park which, I must say, was one interesting experience. I had walked about five meters into the park, and managed to be asked if I wanted to buy some "herbs" 4 times. That's San Fran for you.. I also realized that the hippies I was so looking forward to see, has been replaced by junkies. But nevertheless, some of the spirit is still there. Unless I got unintentionally high (which is very possible, given the amount of pot in the air) and imagined it.

fredag 23. oktober 2009

Home is where your heart is..

Another thing I am not sick of yet: fringes. I love fringes. The vest is from Cubus, and the bag is from H&M. I have come to the realization that shopping will not be a possibility for me this month, because I am broke. Super broke. But then again, midterms and other assignments are coming up again, so I probably wouldn't have had any time for shopping anyway.
The headline is from The Sounds, a Swedish band. They are so great. And they are playing in San Francisco TONGIHT! And I reeeeally wanna go. Guess I'll see what I can do.
Hope everyone has a great weekend :)

torsdag 15. oktober 2009

The rest is still unwritten..

I found those harem pants on Ebay, now here's the question; to buy, or not to buy? I really want them, but considering the fact that I am actually pretty broke, I might have to drop it...
Going to L.A tomorrow! Hopefully, that is.. We don't really know, cause our travel plan got a bit messed up, but most likely, we are going! I will post pictures, if anyone is interested in that :)
The past day's I've been doing school, and been a bit miserable (due to the rain that came a bit shocking on me for a couple days ago), but nevertheless; today's a new day, and I hope it will be good (it's a bit to early to tell). And more importantly; I hope this weekend will be good!

Love's the funeral of heart..

I bought myself a new lacebody, which I am very happy with! I still love lace, as I'm sure I've already mentioned a thousand times.. Anyhow, another thing I'm starting to adore is pink lipstick. I've always loved my red one, but pink seems to be a bit more versitile right now.
Oh, and next weekend I am going to L.A! Hope it will be fun.. Me and a friend on a bus full of boys (apparently, we're going with a frat.....), but it should be pretty fun anyway! Hope L.A is a nice place.. I think I might go and search for Tommy Lee. Yup, good thinking..
Hope everyone had a nice weekend!
