My newest edition to my bones-collection is this claw necklace from fashionology.nl. Bought a silver claw ring as well, but it slipped of my finger while I was driving around in the boat one day and is now the property of some mermaid in the archipelago outside Søgne. Bummer. Thinking about adding two more rings to the collection as well as getting a new claw ring when I get some money again. The silver deer horn ring (which is quite awesome) and the silver finger armor ring are top 2 at the moment, but what do you think?

Tomorrow is our day off in Örebro, which means no running and hopefully some shopping. I’m going ACNE-hunting, because I’ve heard they’ve got some sort of outlet somewhere around here. Other than that Örebro is just plain boring shopping-wise, which sucks basically. Hopefully Switzerland will calm my need for shopping, and I know it will if I get the chance to visit Zurich. Really getting both depressed, uninspired and cranky from dressing up in nothing but sports wear. The weather is fantastic right now btw, has been raining dogs and cats the last two days, but today offered 27 degrees in the sun, and tomorrow will be even better. Ready – set – go tan!

Like the retro idea and the combination of illustrations and photo, always a win in my opinion, especially if done as neat as it has been done in these pictures. And of course the Donnie Darko rabbit-head. That movie is beyond amazing, and the effect of the head with the pink sweater is simply freakshow-esque.
Aside from running orienteering, which I am , btw, doing poorly (it took me 25 minutes to my first post today, I was practically running in circles around the post. Was so angry with myself I was basically shaking), I have spent the last few days gathering info, sending emails and planned a trip to Copenhagen Fashion Week together with Maria. Our trip to Fashion Week by Berns in Stockholm last February was such a huge success that I have no doubts in my mind that this trip will be fan-freakin-tastic ;) Fashion shows, garden parties, bicycling, Danish beer (well, maybe cider, but I hate cider) and serious lack of sleep will be an absolutely perfect way for me to end my vacation. Ready – set – go insomnia and that cold I nourish all through the winter season.
In other news I have developed a sleeping pattern that by other people might be known as … normal. *gasp* I go to bed before 23.00 and wake up at the very latest around 9.00. Seriously. If I keep this up I might just continue with this nonsense for the rest of the year. Normally I am a night person, and experience shows that I work better in the hours between 22.00 and 04.00. If I am too sleepy to stay up at those late night hours when everything is quite at last, what will happen to me? Will I become stereotypical nobody with an A4-job and everything? Let’s hope not, for all of ours sake.
What about you, a fellow member of the night people or a morning person ?
I am currently located on a hotel room in Örebro, Sweden, getting ready to move all my stuff into the cabin we have rented. O-ringen – one of the largest orienteering gatherings in the world – starts tomorrow, which means that it’s time to start what I call my summer boot camp. Two weeks of competing, running-running-running, first here and then in Lausanne/Pays de Neuchatel. And then Fashion Week starts. I should be in good shape to run around in high heels then, hopefully.
But anyways, I have a question: can any of you give some shopping tips for Örebro? Because all I can find at the moment is BikBok and Carlings, and that really does not excite me in any way.

Put together a mood-board for myself for the late summer/early autumn. What colors will inspire me, and what items I will most likely want to use out of everything that is cluttered together in my closet. A great asset to have when I’m packing for fashion week. Hoping to visit both Copenhagen Fashion Week and Fashion Week by Berns in Stockholm this year, as well as Oslo Fashion Week, which means that I can wear just about whatever I feel like.
That’s one of the things I like about fashion week, it’s dress to impress, and although it might be a taboo to say it out loud, I don’t mind. Now, I’m not one of those who have this extravagant style, so I certainly wont be the most noticeable, but I like to try to out-do myself a little bit, pushing the boundaries one step at a time.
In the middle of the anti-social bubble I’ve been living in these shoes arrived, reminding me that I do have a blog and a life outside this island I am stranded on. Sometimes it is so easy to forget about that when you have enough books to read, haven’t even looked at your mascara in a week, and lose your phone about 6 times a day (really can’t figure out how I do it, I don’t move around that much, my moving pattern consist of the living room, my room and the garden).
Leaving for Sweden on Friday, to spend a week in Örebro before jumping on a plane to Switzerland. This has really been how summer vacation should be; so much free time that when school and work finally starts again, you can’t wait to do something and work your ass of. I certainly will.
Since the last time I talked with you guys I have filled my days with good friends, card games, alcohol, movies and nights with long conversations while listening to latin music (thanks to Ingeborg) and The Doors. (Has anyone seen When You’re Strange yet? AH. Jim Morrison-orgasm I tell you). A typical summer holiday in other words. Spent the last two days being sick, throwing up the contents of the world and divided my time between my bed and my toilet. Hilarity does not ensue.
After much consideration I have selected a TOP 5 of the blogs you told me to read (that I asked for in any case). Was expecting ruthless self-promotion, and realized that I am not really against that when some of the blogs being promoted actually are quite a good read.
1. The Haute Pursuit – followed her blog for awhile, then stopped. Glad to be reminded that she still exists. Those damn Asians and their perfectly “too cool for school”-style. I want to be one of them.
2. 5 inch and up – I love the way she combines primark and miu miu, and the fact that her photos are to die for.
3. The notebook doodles – because it’s beautiful and pretty and makes me want to start drawing again. Instantly. Which I will. Right now actually.
4. if you seek style – another blog I followed some time ago, then forgot all about. Beautiful girl, simple but amazing style.
5. tiny art director – cute little website about a father and his daughter and drawing. Spent two days browsing through the archives. Must-read.
Aaaaand I’m back in Oslo. For 24 hours and just to attend a funeral so it’s not really the happiest of occasions, but I realized as the bus was driving through Sandvika and then passed the Opera that I have missed the city. Can’t wait for August to come around so I can move back. Spent the entire bus trip being stared at by a tourist from Senegal who was practically jumping up and down in his seat because he was so pleased about being in Norway. He couldn’t speak Norwegian (obviously, who outside Norway can), English and his French was so heavily accented that a conversation was very hard, but he kept me entertained with his excitement for just about everything.
This years must-see movie: When You’re Strange. My love for everything The Doors and Jim Morrison is one of the greater, and for years and years The Doors have been a part of my Top 3 favorite bands (together with The Who and Coldplay). Jim Morrison is the epitome of the Fallen Rockstar, with drugs, politics and rock’n'roll, leaving his mark alongside Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix and for that matter Jeff Buckley and Kurt Cobain.
The new movie features never before seen photos and film and is narrated by another favorite Mr. Johnny Depp. Can’t wait to see this, and there’s no doubt in my mind about whether I will like it or not. Love Jim always. The misunderstood geniuses are always the most complex and interesting characters, it is so cliché, but true. Random fact: Jim allegedly had and IQ of 149.
It’s raining again in Kristiansand, and that means staying inside to play games, read and spend time on the computer. Personally I’ve checked my bloglovin’ fourteen times and realized that I need to find some new blogs to read. And that’s where you come in, dear readers. Can you recommend to me one (or ten) of your favorite blogs? Don’t bother with the most popular ones, chances are I’ve read them to death already.
This blog belongs to Maren, a 23-year-old quasi-intellectual girl from Kristiansand, Norway. She has got a Bachelor of Arts in English Literature from the University of Oslo, and is now living in Honolulu, Hawaii where she is working on a MA in Communication at Hawaii Pacific University. She likes books. [more?]
In 2004 I started to write down what books I read in order to keep track of them all. Since 2006 I have gathered them here instead of in my notebook and they serve as a reminder of how I should read more and compete to beat my old “record”. You can find the complete list here.
