About

Thank you so much for visiting my blog!

About the Blog:
I’ve had a Norwegian blog for a couple of years now (LINK) and I used to love sharing my pictures and life events to family, friends, and everyone who were willing to listen. But since January my enthusiasm for blogging – and some of my enthusiasm for life in general – seems to have completely disappeared. So now I’ve finally decided to make a change. I’m starting over with a new platform and my very own domain, and I’m making some positive changes in my day-to-day life while I’m at it. I’ll be sharing my journey to becoming a better cook with new and exciting recipes (and I’d love any suggestions you might have) and my progress towards getting in shape with fun workouts. In addition I also love fashion and accessories and will be posting anything from outfits to my latest nail polish obsessions.

And you’ll of course get some insight in my everyday life, since I often use my blog to keep my friends and family (who live on the other side of the world) updated on what I’m up to. As a starting goal I am also planning on updating the blog at least twice daily – once in the morning and once in the evening.

  1. I was in Norway (and Sweden/Finland/Estonia) last summer and aside from my home (west coast of Canada) it was the most beautiful place I’ve ever been! Not to mention so many beautiful people there. I’ve never been to Georgia though🙂 Great blog!

      • It was a bit of a pilgrimage (to the birthplace of metal music!). We mostly saw Bergen and Oslo and spent lots of time on boats and trains. I’ve recommended it to everyone since!
