Enjoy your weekend cupcakes :)

Normally I would have saved this for my 'Tuesday tunes' but I'll make an exception since it is Robyn and therefore naturally a Friday kind of tune! 

Music: Robyn 'Indestructible' / Pictures: from the video
See the video premier here.

The storyline in this movie is a pretty simple one:
A son trying to learn more about his dying father by 
reliving stories and myths his father told him about himself.

But in this simple story there is hidden great truth.

It tells us that true love is worth fighting for.
It tells us about the power of imagination.
It tells us about the value of letting your love stay true to themselves and how you should not strive to change them.
It tells us how we should not judge people even if we cannot always understand them and even if their ways are not the same as our own. 
It tells us about the value of family.
It tells us that death does not always have to be ugly.
And it tells us that we should stay true to your dreams.

At least that is what it told me... 

And if none of that impress you - there is always Marion Cotillard!

Have a great Friday cupcakes :)

fun facts

  1. MSN kontoen min er blitt hacket! Så utroooolig gøy! Så da er det bare å komme i gang med å bytte ut brukernavn og passord på alle tenkelige og utenkelige steder hvor jeg er registert...
  2. Jeg er 165 cm lav på strømpelesten
  3. Fisk > Kjøtt
  1. My msn account got hacked! Fun times! So now I better get started on changing my username and password to every thinkable and unthinkable place I am registered...
  2. I am 165 cm tall. Or maybe that does not qualifies as 'tall'  at all but rather '165 cm low'?
  3. Fish > Meat

As a side note, did you ever have someone trash talk you behind your back?
And if so, did it just drive you nuts or were you able to rise above it?

And why is it that the '3 girls together scenario' can become such a nightmare for many people? Is it really that much harder for girls to come out and talk about whatever problem they might have with someone to their face?

If you ever experienced anything like that I am sure you will be able to appreciate this song, it has such great lyrics and a carefree vibe. And she is right you know, we should all strive to not give a damn what people are going on about behind our backs! I mean, if they don't have the spine to come out and say it to your face they are not really worth the time of day - am I right?

Have a lovely Tuesday everyone :)

God morgen! Ny uke - nye muligheter, sant?
Denne uken skal jeg bare nyte den første vinteruken i hovedstaden, sånn før det begynner å snø og gatene blir fylt med slaps! Lørdag er det ut å spise pizza på Villa Paradiso med jentene og feire fine Ulla som blir 30 år!

Hvilke planer har du for uken som kommer?

~ ~ ~

Good morning! New week - new possibilities, am I right?
This week I am going to enjoy the first week of winter in Oslo, before the snow starts falling and the streets get filled with wet snow-slush! On Saturday I am going out with the girls to eat the best pizza in town and drink cava on Villa Paradiso to celebrate my lovely friend Ulla that is turning 30!

What are your plans for the upcoming week?

on the brink of winter

I dag hadde vi vår første vinterdag I Oslobyen hvor frosten 
varte langt utover de små morgentimene på tross av sola.

We had our first day of winter in Oslo today where the
frost lasted beyond the early morning hours despite the sun.

friday favorites

“It is more fun to talk with someone who doesn't use long, difficult words 
but rather short, easy words like "What about lunch?"”

“If ever there is tomorrow when we're not together.. 
There is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. But the most important thing is, even if we're apart.. I'll always be with you.”

“If you want to make a song more hummy, add a few tiddely poms.”

“Don't underestimate the value of doing nothing, of just going along, 
listening to all the things you can't hear, and not bothering.”

“You can't stay in your corner of the forest waiting for others to come to you. You have to go to them sometimes.”

“Pooh looked at his two paws. He knew that one of them was the right, and he knew that when you had decided which one of them was the right, then the other was the left, but he never could remember how to begin”

swapidee swap

A while back I read about the Fall Swapidee Swap over at 'The Claw' 
and since I never participated in any of these blog swaps I figured it would be fun to try and signed up!

Yesterday I got my package from the lovely Sol and here is what was in it:
  1. Lovely colorful sweets! Very yummy! (And it's always fun to try sweets from other countries, don't you think?) The chocolate is handmade and had the most awesome flavors like 'birds eye chili' and 'pineapple pistachio' - how cool is that? 
  2. Venus Tea and a notebook.
  3. Risotto and a huge chunk of fresh parmesan. Guess she figured out what a food-o-holic I am!
  4. A bar of soap, a decorative tulip and a small glass heart.
Thank you so much to Sol for a very nice package 
and to Sherri for hosting the swap!

lovely linen

I have a huge crush on the new H&M Home collection 'Lovely Linen' 
and couldn't resist ordering a few things I think will fit perfectly in my home.

Did you see it yet? What do you think?
