TOP:BIKBOK//PANTS:LINDEX//SHOES:ALEXANDER WANG//BAG:GUCCI//SUNNIES:RAYBAN

 

Simple girl, simple style. This top from Bik Bok is everything. I bought a very similar one months ago, but when I came home I realized it had some spots on it that I wasn’t able to remove, and the receipt was in the trash can decades ago… Why do I never learn. I almost threw a party when I found a almost identical one at BikBok in Norway. Oh happy day! With a top like this you just put on whatever simple things you may prefer, and your outfit is still rockin! Off-shoulder, beautiful details and long arms. What is it not to love?



Fallen in love with pink

The weather in Trondheim has been really great these last few days. Today I woke up to rain and gray skies, but it is totally okay when its been really great like this for a few days. Can’t expect more up here in the north! Because of the weather I own thousands of jackets, cuz I feel I always need to wear one. At least that’s what I tell myself. I have fallen in love with pink again this season. A color that I haven’t been wearing too much as I don’t think that it suits me very well. After going a bit blonder however, I think that it suit me more. This rough jacket in a cute pink color caught my attention and had to go with me back home!

Put on your positive pants

Put on my happy pants! They are continuously being used both as everyday wear and, if I put on some heels, as casual wear. I think they draw enough attention themselves so I like to pair them with a simple white tee. To keep that 90’s vibe I also like to use a bit oversized t-shirt. If you are lucky to get your hands on them I recommend to get them at least a size too small, they become really big after just a few min on. I have to get mine tailored, or wash them every hour :p

Let’s try something new!

I’m a coward, or wait, am I just a bit reasonable? This is not gonna be a post discussing whether I am the one or the other. The fact is that I don’t want to inject anything in my body, or use strong chemicals to change parts of my body. I have stretched my limits to eyelash extensions and an occasional hair coloring now and then, even that also freaks me out.

 

I’ve torn the internet after more gentle ways to whiten my teeth after way too much tea drinking, and after seeing charcoal products popping up everywhere I was super happy when this product showed up. It seems like charcoal is the new shit, and in Bangkok they used it for everything; charcoal burgers, bread, hairdressers, ice cream, toothpaste, soap, yeah, you name it. And now, I was ready to try COCO by Skintechnology. I mashed my toothbrush into the small little jar with black powder, laughed my way through how strange it looked, and was super expectant to see the result afterwards. Then the big question, did it work? To be totally honest I didn’t see much of a result. Who am I kidding, my mouth was super black! Okay, Ida you are never gonna become a stand up comedian… But seriously, I did not see too much of a difference. However, this product is not the same as a regular teeth whitening product, and will naturally not give the same results. Which is exactly why I decided to try. I am gonna try it several times and hopefully over time I will notice a difference. That would have saved my problem!

But now over to something that definitely worked straight away! Instaplumper by Skintechnologies. I think I’ll cover it with OMG. OMG it hurts, OMG it WORKS! Yes, cuz to be honest you could really feel your lips get an effect from this product. The package already prepared me for it on beforehand, and the superwoman as I am, I stripped on the plastic patches. Ready to get pouchy perfect lips. The package also said that you had to leave the plastic there for 15-60 min, but superwoman only lasted for 5…

But this you guys, this product absolutely works! As they say, no pain no gain #yolo. I could really se a big difference, and this is the first plumping product I’ve ever tried with such good results. The effect lasted for around 1 hour. Next time I’m gonna try to leave it on for a longer time and see if the effect is gonna stick even longer. You know what, I’m gonna let the pictures speak for themselves. And NO, I’m not trying to make a duck face here, this is actually the effect!

Flared

Obsessing over flares. I feel that I’m either a year late, or 20 years late. Whatever, I like it and I’m not gonna stop wearing them anytime soon. Matching these jeans with my new top from Zara. Love the structured trend that we are seeing a lot of lately. It do create some serious skills though! I tried to flatten out this look by going for a simple pair of jeans that are a bit «bottom heavy». And also, how cute are my shoes? I Imagine they are something Twiggy could have wore in the 60’s.

Bohemian vibes

Have totally fallen in love with this outfit! The pattern, the fabric, the shape, yes everything. It gives me some bohemian vibes, which I always like. The pants have the perfect flare, and the high waist  create a perfect shape for this look. The top was originally long, but I cut it off to make it short enough to tuck into the pants. I wanted to highlight the highwaist of the pants, not hide it away! This cute little creation is btw from HM’s «golden» collection. I have neven seen it anywhere else than in Asia. And I didn’t find it online either. Have you guys seen this collection in Norway before? If you have tell me! I always had to have a peak at the exclusive department everytime I passed one of the bigger HM stores in Bangkok.

Because I’m happy

If I could have put on a song that was playing at the same time you were reading this post, it would have been «Happy – Farell Williams». Okay I’m a bit tacky at times, you should give my creative mind some extra space. Things like this might pop up then.. But it’s mail time! And for me, that means Happybox time. The theme of this box is nails and smile, okay that’s my imagination again, but the box comes with nail polish, a file and cuticle oil, and for the lips a super cute lipstick that I can’t wait to try and a whitening pen! And just to not forget the last product, an exfoliating cream. The Happybox couldn’t have arrived at a better time. I’m out of almost everything since I moved back from Thailand, and I only brought back my necessities. My brother, which I’m staying at this moment, is not as happy, as these happy products have won the war against his warriors; a toothbrush and a box with wax. But I saw his look on the whitening pen, I think I have to hide it before its gone…

Bergen

These last few days I’ve been in Bergen. Went back to do my last exam ever, can’t believe it! I’ve been living in this city 4,5 years, so it felt good to be back, even though it was just for a super small visit. Bergen is such a beautiful city, and really something for itself. All the cute streets and houses, the closeness to the mountains, and of course the picturesque «bryggen». As a tourist in Norway I would recommend this as your number one destination. No doubt! After two days with incredible intense studying, I helped Espen move out, as he is continuing his adventure in the US this summer. I’m slowly getting used to the Norwegian weather again, and the woolen clothes are back in the closet right where they belong at this time of the year. And hey, it’s first day of summer today!

Favorite smoothies

My all time favorite breakfast, lunch, snack, yes actually all meals, is smoothie bowls. This has lead to me trying out all kinds of combinations of ingredients. Nowadays, these two colorful bowls are my favorites; a spinach and pineapple based smoothie, and a raspberry and cherry based one. I prefer to make mine with frozen ingredients as that makes the smoothie thicker. Thats why I prefer smoothie bowls over regular smoothies; they are supposed to be thicker so that you can eat it with a spoon! The main ingredients you use for a smoothie are frozen berries, fruits and vegetables, and some liquid of your choice. I like to add freshly pressed juice to get some more flavor, but you can use everything from milk, to coconut water and regular water to get the flavor you like. Here comes my recipes:

 

Green Power Bowl:

Spinach

Pineapple

Mango

Lime juice

Ice cubes

 

Pink Berry Love:

Raspberries

Cherries

Strawberries

Orange juice

Ice cubes

 

 

Back to Norway

Im back in Norway! Back to finish my final exam EVER, and to finalize my master thesis. Can’t believe after 7 years of studying I’m finally done. Working life awaits, and I can’t wait to start on new challenges. I’m excited to share my new job with you, but I’ll keep it a secret for now. It was extremely sad to leave Bangkok, the city is a buzzing adventure from morning till night. But the most sad thing was to leave all my friends, and my boyfriend. Wish I could bring them all with me to Norway. Except of that, being back in Norway is great. I have never appreciated fresh air this much, and how easy the lifestyle here is. You never have to wait hours in lines, almost everything can be solved on the phone or online, and you can walk almost anywhere or just jump in the car and go wherever you want in a few minutes. That is something I really appreciate about being back. I guess it was a good experience for me to live in a country as far from Norway as you could get. A piece of my heart is left in Bangkok, and I’m sure this is a place I will return many times.
