Opening party!

As you may have seen on Facebook, Gael opened last week for a soft opening and yesterday was the big day when everything went official.

Everybody was so excited and everything went just as expected! 
We were welcomed with a glass of champagne and a fantastic atmosphere. 

At Frognerveien 9 you can expect the best quality, amazing taste and homemade food at breakfast, lunch and dinner.
 Go to to find the menu.  

Thank you for a nice evening Gael
I know there is a lot more to come ;)

Confident me?

 That awkward day when you think that you are on time, everything is ok, you are driving on your way to work and... 
remember that you forgot to put on deodorant! 
Not nice at all :/

Suddenly I didn't have enough time to drive back home and so early in the morning there is no place to buy deodorant.

Well, I can inform you guys, that my day went ok anyway.
People did sit beside me at lunch and nobody made faces or even notice that I wasn't wearing that very important thing that make us feel a little bit more confident in our everyday life.

After picking up my son at the kinder garden I drove straight home and took a shower! 
It wasn't that I actually needed it, but maybe I did need it in a psychological way.
It was just uncomfortable to know that I missed that big step in my after shower routine.

I get it if you think that this was way too much information about my day, but this was actually something that made me think about that little things that make us the people we are.
I could never behave normally without wearing deodorant or underwear or without brushing my teeth.

There is so many things that impact in how confident or not confident I can feel. Even when the whole world doesn't know about it.

It was funny though and is not the first time it happens and unfortunately will not be the last either.

Deo Pure from Biotherm
Superdefense SPF 20 face cream from Clinique
Lait Corporel Anti-drying Body Milk from Biotherm
Gucci Guilty Intense Eau de Parfum
Osis+ Glamination Prime Prep Spray from Schwarzkopf
"Perfeccionador de rizos" from Garnier 

Have a great weekend!

Strike a pose

Snapchat has become one of my favorite apps so far.
I like that it's so easy to use and that you can keep in touch with people while you see what they are doing. 
It's a really fun way to communicate. 
I love that it has so many cool filters. I have never laughed as much as I did today with all the fun faces, but I like the cute ones best. 

This à la Victoria's Secrets and the Coachella one are the sweetest. 


A lot of people has asked me to face swap but I find it so creepy!!! That is the only one I haven't tried yet.
If you still don't have Snapchat I really recommend you to download it. I assure you that it will make you laugh, I mean tomato face, 
come on ;)

Keep up the good work #Snapchatteam

Have a nice evening everyone!

I Love Food

I am always trying to eat healthy and I am always trying new things, new flavors, new places.
Food is some of the things I love the most in the world.
I know I have told you before, but I am really lucky because my boyfriend loves to cook and does it really well too.
Here is one of the healthy salads we ate some days ago :)
Easy and fast to make:

Salad, avocado, cherry tomatos, asparagus, cheese, pomegranate and chicken.

I don't usually buy take away food, but sometimes I go to this place in Grünerløkka called East Kitchen. 
Totally recommended!

I discovered dim sum in Tenerife, so yummy!

And I am also a fan of dessert :)
Macarons are just so delicious

 I know that the summer is coming and that means bikini season, 
but to stop eating is not a solution.
Enjoy life, enjoy eating but everything in moderation.

Now that the days are warmer and the sun comes visiting, go for a walk or a run.
Leave the car at home and use your bicycle, or just walk.
I assure you that you will discover new places and see things different than when you drive ;)

Have a nice evening :)

The interior is fresh and cool and here I bring you a sneak peak so you can have an idea of how this playful and innovative concept is going to look like.

Funny and elegant pictures with bright colors invade the walls and welcome you to enjoy a delicious culinary experience.

You can come for a nice glass of wine or a good beer ;)

The youthful decoration is just so unique!
A pearl in Oslo.

Finally tea time!

There is a beautiful day outside. 
Cloud free sky and the sun is shining for us.
It seems that the spring is finally here! Everything is starting to look green and beautiful.

This morning I got to enjoy a nice cup of tea from my new teapot :)
I got this teapot from Christian for my birthday in february, but the heater was sold out at the time and then the shop just forgot the order, but after some e-mails and 2 months of waiting, I can finally use it and brew some tea :)

I love to put some mint leaves in my tea. 
I have a mint plant in my window and I use it a lot. 
Is always nice with some mint flavor in your salad, tea, milkshake or just to decorate your desserts.


Hope you enjoy this sunny sunday!

All that glitters is not gold...

...No, it can also be shoes!
I am in love with this booties. I bought them on sale and they were such a good deal :)
Now that the snow is gone I can finally use them and I have received so many compliments.

They are one of my favorite shoes and they are actually very comfy and that is more than I can ask for! So I can definitely say that my hunting season was goooood ;)  

Gold leather booties from Zara - last season.
Acne Jeans

See you around ;)

Finally here!

I bought these beautiful glasses in december last year and the first time I got them, they came  with the wrong lenses, because the factory made a mistake.
The second time the lenses didn't fit either, but after 4 months I finally have them in my hands and they are just perfect.
Simple and elegant :)

I love them!

I have been watching "Suits" and I just finished watching season 4.
I wonder what Netflix have for me now :)
Have a great wednesday evening!

Give me some sugar

Sometimes sugar is all you need to cheer up a gray tuesday ;)
Yes, spring is playing hard to get and as my boyfriend says we are going through the first autumn of the year, because if you didn't know in Oslo we have two autums, the one after winter and the one before winter :P

#Throwback to this saturday when Christian and I walk down town to pick up my glasses and ended (without glasses) at Café Christiania after we ate some delicious churros with cinnamon sugar... yummy!

Hot chocolate is always a good idea :)

Hope you had a nice tuesday and don't forget your raincoat tomorrow!

The popsicle of the year?

Hi again everyone!

Some weeks ago Camilla and Caroline launched their latest product,
this popsicle who goes by the name of "Frost" and I believe it will be the hit of the season, anyway for us girls.
It has everything you can ask for: good taste, no sugar, few calories, it's trendy and at a good price.
If you haven't tried it yet, you just have to go and try one. 
I have just tried Forest Fruit by Camilla Pihl because Caroline's was sold out :(

This is what I will be cooling down with this summer.

I wonder if they will be launching something with chia anytime soon. I would totally consume it in a daily basis :)

Good luck with "Frost" Camilla and Caroline!!

I'll be here enjoying my popsicle while I wait for summer.
Is it here yet?

See you next year Easter bunny!

Easter is long gone but I wanted to show you some pictures of ours days in the mountain.

We had a blast. 
Both adults and children got easter eggs full with chocolate and candy from the easter bunny and we ate all of it!

It was really nice to be with the family and just have time, you know. Not have to do something or be somewhere. Just be there and enjoy.
It was quality time. The kids were so happy playing in the snow, making jumps and castles.

We had a lot of fun in the snow :) Here is me sledging.

Our beautiful dinner table. 
We ate raclette.

Me (and my coke) waiting for my son to be called up stage to receive his trophy and diploma for his first ski competition. 
All kids got trophies :)

See you next year Easter Bunny.
Thank you so much for so many sweets we ate. 
Now I have to train all of it away, summer is not that far away, you know ;)

Big hugs everyone!
