I cant' believe how fast December went by this year. When I was a kid December was torture. Absolute torture. And now Christmas Eve is over already. It was great, though. I really got into the christmas spirit for once and made cranberry jam with honey, orange and cinnamon for my family while listening to Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Ballet. I got homemade chocolate chip cookies, a moomin cup and a six month subscription to MONOCLE from my wonderful boyfriend and also lots of great books and not to mention two other Moomin cups from friends! I'm so happy. Christmas is great. Happy holidays!

My second design project isn't due until January, so I'm more or less in vacation mode already. Don't know if that's such a good idea considering my project will be extremely time consuming once I'm started. We're supposed to explore the borderlines between fashion and art. Intense.
Anyways, I've spent the day with Karima, taken a trip aroundt town in the rain, hung out at new bookstore which had a 25 % sale on books and (and bought tooooo many of them), goofed around with my new TRIA markers and listened to Robert Plant and Allison Krauss while drinking coffee. The MUJI cinnamon and mandaring scented candle burning merrily, reminding me that christmas isn't far away. I just got my salary so I've been splurging a bit. On books, mostly. But also on a pink bow tie and my favorite YSL pinkpinkpink lipstick. Winter is wonderful.

Hmmm. A whole month since last post, but I've been working on my first design task . Add two jobs on top of that and the result is one exhausted little girl. Pwehhh. But now I'm all done.
Yay. Tonight we're having a massive 90s party in the apartment. I'm overexited. I'll be wearing a black dress with chinese markings and a cream colored pleather jacket with a high colar - and of course soak my hair in gel and have on small blue sunglasses on the tip of my nose. Matrix style. All of our friends are bringing their old Buffalos and stuff like that. And I found all my old posters (why did I keep them, really?) of Spice Girls, All Saints and Backstreet Boys in my mom's attic. Sweeet. There'll be slow dance to Mariah Carey's "Hero" and drinking to "California Love". Damn right.
Vacation is only a few weeks away and I counted just 16 whole days left at school. Wow. I have an interview in about an hour so I have to run soon. Here are some of my favorite pictures right now. Nice and simple.

Fall in Norway is pretty much amazing. No doubt. This week has been good, even though I've been missing my boyfriend quite a bit (he's visiting his best friend in Vancouver). Sigh. Thursday was spent doing some spontanious dancing at a birthday party held at a new bar in Oslo called Fisk & Vilt (roughly translated into Fish & Game (the sign was donated by a closing fish dealer)). Lots of good friends and nice music. Britney remixes and cheap cava. Nice. Yesterday we went out to The Villa after a very intimate pre-party (just me and Iselin drinking rum and coke and doing some couch dancing while playing air-keytar). We met up with some friends and since our other friend, Jon (love you, sweetie), was tending the bar we got a very nice price on drinks. Dangerous. We went over to Fisk & Vilt and danced some more. Then we went home and ate pizza. Mmmmm. Today, Karima and I took a walk in the gorgeous weather (the colors were amazing) and saw a great gallery exhibition by Kohei Yoshiyuki called "The Park". Then we went home, cleaned the entire house and baked apple and cinnamon cupcakes. Yum. My plan for tonight is doing nothing but stuffing my face with cupcakes and drinking ginger and honey tea.
