Christmas baking

Now it's almost Christmas! Everything have to be perfect!

In Norway there's an old rule that you're supposed to make seven different kind of Christmas cakes. Very few people follow this rule, but my family is a bit old fashion that way, so I thought I'd show you some of the things we've made this Christmas:

Even though it's pretty cold and wet in Oslo right now, I simply can't not wear my dresses! Put on several pairs of tights, a big scarf and some water-proof boots and you're ready for the harsh Norwegian winter. Photo shoot from the dressing-rooms after gym-class!

Fashion vs Decoration

Been extremely busy lately.. The Christmas rush has totally begun... And besides, Christmas is the one season where fashion is not the number one subject on my mind. I have to admit, during December I prefer looking at house decorations over shoes, make-up, skin products and clothes. Do you agree? Here are some of the things from the white company that I've had on my mind for the last couple of weeks. You got to admit that I do have a point.

A very young Kate Moss

I found this on youtube one day, and I've been waiting for the perfect time to post it, like right now! This is a young Kate Moss doing an audition for L'Oreal. Wasn't she the cutest??

Poem of the day

Writer's block

Sometimes I can't find inspiration
for writing my paper or text
my head is all blank in frustration
not knowing what word will come next

I'm typing and nothing comes out there
but meaningless words in a row
just letters, a comma, what nightmare
to watch my stiff fingertips bow

They say I'm afraid of beginning
and not doing perfectly well
that I might not be the one winning
sends my motivation to hell

Then when I was doing some thinking
of how I could get this to mend
I thought of an old proverb saying
"A good start is half-way to end"

So give me the very first sentence
and I know I'll finish it all
it's only this writer's block's defense
that needs to be broken and fall

I want....

It's finally December, and Christmas is approaching quickly! Do you know what you want from Santa this year? Here are some of the things I dream about for the moment:

I love this outfit from Alexander Wang's spring 2009 ready-to-wear collection. The shirt, the pants, the shoes.. I want it all!

A must have for my skin, the ecological Green Apple Peel.

This is a very special but awsome dress from Fifth Avenue Shoe Repair fall 2008 collection. (Source: http://www.jargol.com/blog/items/fifth-avenue-shoe-repair-fall-2008/)

I've already made a post about this one, but here I go again. If anything deserves to be posted in my blog twice, it must be Penhaligon's Bluebell.

Me want: Miu Miu boots! (source: http://elenita.no/)

Haha, and at last I want world peace..
