I know my blog is very boring at the moment – but so is my life as well. You see I have my oral Chinese exam today (wish me luck!). I also have a written Chinese exam, a review and an essay to write before I head home, so the two last weeks have been all about reading, practicing and researching.
Speaking about home, just one week left till I can breathe Norwegian air again, I certainly can´t wait!
Wish you all a good day and good luck to those who have exams!

My latest style crush – Cate Underwood! In my eyes she´s almost like a superwoman – gave birth to her son when she was 18 years old. The same year she started as a photographer. In the young age of only 23 years, this Ukrainian beauty has achieve a lot. She is now a well known fashion photographer and model and her client list includes Italian Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, Mauro Grifoni amongst some. And that´s not all – her personal style is also amazing!
Google her for lots of inspiration.
A few days ago I was strolling down the streets, on my way to the uni. Feeling quiet happy and peaceful when suddenly… The handles on my handbag broke. First I was in chock. Then I felt relief – my Mac survived. But then, when I realised that I actually had to carry my bag without handles for 20 minutes, I got so angry.
When I finally got to the uni (after 20 horrible minutes) I couldn´t feel my hands anymore (okey, just imagine a girl in a rush, carrying an over-stuffed bag like it was her most precious thing. Must have been such a silly sight!). I was so irritated that I simply said: “Enough is enough!” And ordered a rucksack from Weekday…
I feel like I´m 14 years old again when wearing it (haven´t been using a rucksack since then), but my back loves me right now. Health and safety first, right? No?
However, I like the simple design and the fact that I can stuff tons of things in it.
To be honest, I initially wanted a rucksack from Sandqvist but as I´m a poor student as we speak, that was not an option. The one from Weekday was a good alternative though!
What do you think about rucksacks? Cool, practical, ugly or impractical?

Simply just something appealing to look at.. Happy weekend guys!
Psst! Weekend tip: Empty jars and boxes does´nt necessarily have to end up in the bin! Turn them into beautiful storage decoration and add a personal twist to your home. Good for your wallet, the environment and your mood. Happy Friday!

Another chic French lady (what a surprise) that I find very inspiring. Her name is Marine Vacht and works as an actress and a model. I would describe her style as typical “Parisian chic” – we´re talking jeans, blazers, oversized shirts, ballerina flats and an “undone” make-up look for everyday. Delicate, simple, silk dresses at the red carpet. Just up my street! Google her for the classic, understated and chic style inspiration you only get from French ladies.
Three amazing sunsets, seen through my bedroom window. Who knew gloomy London could show such a varied palette? Oh London, you never stop surprising me.
In a true Sunday manner I´m giving you a hot Sunday brunch/dinner tip: The Riding Horse Café.
Placed not far from Oxford street (the street you really want to avoid these days!), but still hidden from all the noise this place is an ideal spot to opt for during weekends.
I reckon you would´nt find the restaurant if you´re not familiar with it, which makes it a little less busy.
With its cool and “warm” interior you get this really comfy and relaxed vibe.
The waitors are very service minded and the food is amazing! I went there at the evening and opted for a proper cheese burger with fries and a cocktail, but I´ve heard that they are supposed to have a brilliant brunch menu as well (we´re talking Eggs Benedict, French Toast, Bircher Muesli, Proper British Breakfast, Smoothies served in glass milk bottles – I mean have cute is that?). Will definitely go back for brunch another time.
As it is quiet close the tube station this is the perfect spot to visit and fuel up your tummie before a gallery visit or a shopping stroll. Worth a visit.
Ps. Sorry for the bad quality photos. My camera hasn´t been very cooperative lately.
Ok, guys. Before I start talking about this amazing photographer, I have to apologise for my latest absence. I know I keep coming up with excuses all the time, but it is really intense at the moment: I have lots of deadlines at the uni, photo shoots, three personal projects, research for an upcoming essay needs to be done and I have two exams in Chinese/Mandarin in only two weeks (please give me strength for those!). I´m sure you understand that I have to prioritise the uni before the blog.
However, what I wanted with this post was not to talk about myself but this young, talented photographer from Chicago called Kyle Thompson. At the age of nineteen he became interested in photography but was prevented from working and talking with other people because of his anxiety. He therefore started taking self portraits in the woods instead.
He could spend hours in the woods and in abandoned houses making surreal and bizarre self portraits.
After taking hundreds of photos, he postet the 50 best of them on Reddit, and got discovered. He is now working full time with photography.
The fact that he has no formal education in photography makes his work even more astonishing! That once again proves that some people are just born to work with art.
What do you think about his photography? I love it!
