Just a minute ... April.

I used to live five minutes from a merry-go-round.

Taken with my ActionSampler. 
Full set here.

Reading...  Ahem... "I hardly ever read these days. This really pisses me off. I blame the internet. I also blame that the days only have 24 hours in them and I blame the fact that I am human and have to sleep at some point." - Tammy. Ditto.

Drinking... only one cup of coffee a day.

Loving... being able to finally wear the shoes I bought in New York last September. 

Wanting... another tattoo.

Smiling... a lot. Life's pretty awesome at the moment.

Imaginary Tea Party

My birthday party last year was epic (we celebrated my birthday for nearly 24 hours nonstop) and I knew I wouldn't be able to top it this year so I decided to keep things simple... Hmmm... "simple"...  I couldn't help but invite all of you to an imaginary party - I guess that's what simple means to me. Your photos have exceeded all my expectations and I've been thinking a lot about how to express my gratitude, it felt like 'thank you' wasn't enough... I feel lucky and fortunate to have you in my life. I never thought blogging would have such an impact on my life and it took me a long time to acknowledge it. What was supposed to be a place where I could express my creativity became a place where I daily receive buckets of love. I know no other way to say it right than saying it in my mothertongue... 


So here's what we did to celebrate my birthday:

• a magic concert... 
• then Frode took me to an amazing bar I had never heard of: a little hidden gem inspired by the 1920s.
• after-party and I started losing track of time...

• brunch at Villa Paradiso: panna cotta and four cortado for me.
• the weather was rad so we decided to take a walk along the river.
• eventually I went to one of my favourite spots in Oslo, I sat alone by the fjord and realized how lucky I am and how much has happened since last year.
• back home, my mom called me from France: "I just can't believe my daughter's turning 28". 

Me neither.

[Oh Hello Oslo] Dan Colen at Astrup Fearnley Museum of Modern Art

"Based on elements from mass media and experiences from contemporary life with a subcultural language, he creates a personal remix that highlights beautiful and magical aspects of undervalued, everyday life. His artistic production encompasses photographs, painting and sculptures, and includes, among other things, Disney motifs and chewing gum on canvas."
