Summer 2014

You’d actually be surprised. The room isn’t all that big. It used to be a guest room and could only just fit a 2 person bed. The advantage of a walk-in closet is that you don’t have doors so the shelves don’t have to be very deep. Anything that is hanging can just ‘stick out’ without having to worry about doors not being able to close. And when you build the closet all the way to the ceiling you can make really efficient use of space!

These pictures pretty much sums up our vacation this year. (We went to Denmark, Norway and Sweden by car) Being a native Norwegian myself I never thought I would be so surprised and flabbergasted by the beauty of my own country. I have never in my life seen such beautiful places with amazing sunsets and nature.

Pictured (from top left to right):
1. Sunset in Høle (a small village 40 min outside Stavanger).
2. The Pulpit Rock (Preikestolen) The hike is about 4 hours all together but oh so worth it.
3. Me in a huge candy store in Svinesund, Sweden. Bought myself about 2 kg worth of candy there, haha.
4. View from a little mountain at a camp site in Norway called Oddane Sand.
5. Solastranden (Sola beach). Located between Stavanger and Sandnes.
6. On our drive over the mountains from Stavanger to my hometown we came accross snow.
7. Oddane Sand.
8. My boyfriend on a small mountain at Oddane Sand.
9. The beach at Oddane Sand.

Pink Lace Up DIY Isabel Marant Shorts

I’ve been wanting to make these shorts for a while (actually ever since they came down the runway during the Spring/Summer show in 2011). I finally came around to do it, and here is the result! Let me know what you think!

Silver eyelets (you need 6)

Pink Denim Shorts

Pink Laces (about 1 meter / 3.5 feet)

Hole Puncher for Fabric (usually it already comes with the eyelets)
