Why use colors when you can go all black? That is the question. Or that is what happens when you pack mostly summer clothes and the warmest items in your wardrobe end up being all black. I do love black though, its versatility is limitless. -ish. Once you black you never go back, etcetera.
My lack of updates is due to a mix of work and the fact that we are are in the final days of our “moving out of my childhood home”-phase. Spent most of the day throwing away things that I will regret throwing away, like my russ costume and an old class photo. Sentimentality has no place in a world where your storage space is limited and you don’t have a place of your own on this side of the earth. It is obviously time to say goodbye to the old and embrace the new. Wherever that might lead to.

I’m having a great time. (Un)Fortunately the summer house we live in don’t have any wi-fi, so there’s little time for blogging or facebooking or anything. Real vacation in other words. Gotland is as beautiful as I’d hoped and more, and the sunsets here just might rival those in Hawaii.
On the road again

After 12 hours on the bus and train I finally reached a very cold and rain-filled Västerås yesterday. Today we’ll continue our travels to Gotland in the hopes that we might find Hawaii-like weather there, as mainland Sweden is currently swept in a very cold blanket of rain and grey clouds. Right now it wouldn’t surprise me if it started to snow. So Gotland it is, I read on the train that it is supposed to be the 4th best summer vacation spot in Sweden. Go figure.
Do any of you have intimate knowledge about Visby and its surroundings ? Tips ?

On the bus
.. and then it was time to move again, explore new turf and meet other friends. Right now I’ve managed to drag what might pose as my body on certain occasions all the way down to the bus and am currently lodged in a seat headed for Oslo and then Sweden. The bus is filled with sleepy old people, the smell of cold coffee and a girl talking way too loudly on her cell phone. I want to smack the latter but realize that it might not be appropriate, even though I feel the circumstances justify the means.
I am going to watch last Sunday’s episode of Game of Thrones again, to shut her out and to relive the wonder that is George R. R. Martin and HBO. (no I will never stop talking about that show).
Have a nice day !

Inspired by the Bieber fever that was rushing through Oslo I wore my new favorite hoodie from 5preview to be all #swag and such. The Biebster visited Oslo to host a special concert at the Opera house for thousands of Norwegian beliebers. In other words: Oslo was crazy insane for a couple of days with screaming and teary-eyed fans everywhere. Fun ! I have the same mentality or philosophy – or whatever you want to call it – towards Beliebers as I have towards football fans; if you can’t beat them, join them. And the boy is talented, there is just no questioning that. One day I’ll marry him off to my little sister, and force him to teach me how to play the drums/guitar/piano/basketball. It will be great. Or awesome. Or both. Or maybe just #swag.
Dinner at LilleAsia
Summer in the air
I’m back in Kristiansand again for a couple of days, after a weekend that should have been a lot longer in Oslo. You never really do get time to meet every single person you want to meet, and do everything you want to do. Even though all I really did in the capital city was eat ice cream and sleep on the grass in various parks while working on that tan. Today at least I am going to drink my share of coffee and get some work done before I travel to Sweden this weekend to visit more friends.
Good luck with your exams/final days of work/summer vacation/ice cream eating. This summer is going to be a good one, I can feel it !
Fashion Hawaiian style
So… Høyer Egertorget invited a handful of very sweet and very talented fashion bloggers (and me) to a night of macaroons, cava, sushi and a styling contest yesterday at their Karl Johan location. We got 20-ish minutes to style an outfit out of at least 3 different brands in the Høyer collection, and then pose like the bloggers we are for the photographer. All the pictures are up on the Høyer-blog now, and the one who gets the most facebook-likes will win an Alexander Wang bag.
So if you want me to walk around with that smashing little thing called Kirsten by Alexander Wang on my arm, you need to head over to the blog and vote for me. Or vote for someone else. I think we all looked pretty above average-y.

When Tuesday feels like Sunday
JACKET 5preview TOP brandy melville SHORTS h&m BOOTS diesel BAG mulberry
Yesterday was spent dancing and singing with Kanye West and Jay-Z at Telenor Arena, followed by more dancing (and some singing) at Jaeger to the DJ set of legendary producer Mike Dean. Today was spent cleaning up the mess that was my tired body and exhausted mind. Breakfast at Grünerløkka with Maja dressed in my most comfortable clothes, followed by window-shopping around town was and is really the perfect cure.
It really did feel like a Sunday, as we dragged our bodies through town seeing familiar faces on every street corner and taking breaks at the coffee shops every once in a while because walking is tiresome. The sun was shining most of the time, the birds were chirping and the coffee (and the bacon at Nighthawk Diner) kept me going. But now that energy has slowly evaporated and I am left feeling dead tired, so without further ado: good night !

“The more successfully a city mingles everyday diversity of uses and users in its everyday streets, the more successfully, casually (and economically) its people thereby enliven and support well-located parks that can thus give back grace and delight to their neighborhoods instead of vacuity. ” - Jane Jacobs
Yes, this is in fact an outfit post, been a while since the last one. I really like these shorts. That’s really all I have to say. Good night !
Raspberries and strawberries
Why use ice cubes when you can use frozen raspberries ? Yesterday was spent in the sun at Maja‘s and then in Torshovdalen, with BBQ, strawberries, chips and raspberry water as given essentials. Oslo is treating me wonderfully (hence the non-existent updates on the blog), and hopefully it will continue to do so for the next few days as I continue to eat grilled food, drink countless amounts of water, get sunburnt and watch Jay-Z and Kanye West live tomorrow evening.
Enjoy the sun, and keep away from your computer this week, it’s summer !
