I've had the best weekend in a very long time! My older brother surprised me with a last minute trip to Paris this Thursday, and we have had a great long-weekend! We've done a lot of shopping, walking around, eating everywhere, and in general just had a lot of fun. I love being with my brother! And especially when we're far away, have so much time, no work and nothing to worry/think about. A...

I've moved!!

I no longer live in the chic, calm and expencive 17th anymore.. It's kinda sad, actually. I had just gotten used to the area (and my beautiful rooftop view...).. But it's nice to switch place as well, I get to see more of Paris on a deeper level this way.. I now live in one of the hippest streets in central Paris: Rue Montmartre. It's close to Chatelet and Les Halles, so it's really central. An...

New in, Paris

As I've told you, I had my best friend visiting me last week. And with a best friend visiting, girly things tend to happen.. We did a lot of shopping! I mostly stuck to the window shopping, due to my low budget, but I did also buy a few very nice things. I've made a little video to show you the news. Hope you like it, enjoy!

Henri Cartier-Bresson at Pompidou

Last Monday I finally got to see the HCB exhibition, and it was so absolutely worth the wait! It's amazing what he has been through, and how good his photos and videos are considering the time and the equipiment he had to work with. I don't think it is possible for me to describe the exhibit, you have to go see it yourself. And I recommend you to take with you some suvernirs from the exhibition...

I know I write a lot about the parks here in Paris, but, seriously, that's one of the nicest things of being here! There are so many beautiful parks and jardins (gardens) here. I fall in love with a new one every day. The girls and I were having a picninc in Parc de Bercy after the street food festival at Wanderlust. We had the picninc in the lively part of the park, where there were people pla...

Hi guys! I'm sorry for my absence, but I've had a busy but fantastic week in Paris with Henriette. She came over this Tuesday and is going to stay here until Saturday morning. And sweet as she is, she brought some Norwegian goodies: Some Norwegian milk chocolat, my beloveed Norwegian brown cheese and a "ostehvel" (some sort of cheese grater), an easter egg from my mom, and last but not least, ...

This weekend there was a street food festival at Wanderlust (near gare d'Austerlitz and gare de Lyon) in Paris. It was a really cool festival! A lot of people, music, good mood and great food. We got there a bit late, so there weren't much food left.. But there were cakes!! Yummy! Nikon d90 + AF NIKKOR 50mm, f/1,4D - Edited in Photoshop There are so much happening in Paris all the...

Le Cimetire du Pre-Lachaise

Suyin, Tomoyo and I was having a little sightseeing last monday (have to be a little tourist while I'm here as well), we met up at Pre-Lachaise and (obiously) the first thing we did was to walk through the cemetery of Pre-Lachaise. This is a huge, beautiful cemetery located in the 20th arrondissement. It's hard to navigate inside of this huge graveyard, but if you really want to you can follo...

The picture is borrowed from Strange-library This might look like a cute, little book shop from the outside, but, wow, it so much more to it than that. Once you've walked in, it's like you've entered a totally different world. A world of books. It's a huge, 5 or 6 floor book shop with all kinds of genres. Absolutely a must see for book- and litterature lovers! And they also have an entire floo...

Photographers meetup

So, on monday I was at a meetup with a photography group. It was really cool. We just sat down at restaurant La Pantfoulia in the heart of the Marais, and talked with each other about photos, videos, subjects, studio photographing, lightening, equipment, everything. And I got to talk with some really interesting people, who I'm sure I'm gonna stay in touch with. A really inspiring evening! I'm ...

Krav Maga

I totally forgot to tell you about the Krav Maga initiation class I went to on Saturday! It was really cool! As I told you earlier, I haven't tried any other self defence classes, but I absolutely think Krav Maga is something for me. What is Krav Maga, you ask? Well, It's actually the hand to hand combat system of the Israeli Military. Its simple, straight forward method and realistic approach ...

Hey, sweethearts♥ Have you ever been to Le Centre Pompidou? I was there yesterday, and it was such an expirience. This is a huge museum in the middle of central Paris. The first Sunday every month are several museums in Paris open for everyone. And when something is free, it gets crowdy.. If you don't like crowdy, go to Pompidou! This is a huge museum and I didn't wait in line at any time...

Good afternoon, you all! Yesterday evening I was at "the Peacock Palace" at Aux Ecuries du Roy, at a multicultural exhibition kind of thing. Aux Ecuries du Roy is a very cool restaurant/bar with a medieval theme; Walls made of stone and beams of wood. Really cool! Anyways, the evening program was filled up with comedy sketches, experimental music, music clips & video art, and african music and ...

Chineese picnic at Rueil-Malmaison

Yesterday night Ziying invited me to a Chineese dinner at her appartement. But because she had some problems with her landlord, we had to take the food to go. We packed up the food, plates and cutlery, brought some blankets and a bottle of wine, and had a really nice Chinese picnic along La Seine in Rueil-Malmaison. It was really lovely. She is such a good cook! I actually met Ziying at the pho...

Alternative concert at FIPradio

Bonjour mes amis! Yesterday night I was at a consert at la Maison de la Radio, and it was great! There were two different performances, first up there was Elysian Fields with a more jazzy, rocked, alternative kind of style. It's hard to describe the genre, but it was lovely. The band had a wide range of instruments and talents, and I have to mention the saxophone player: He was fantastic! A gre...

E: Hi beatiful visiters♥ Yesterday I was at an exhibition at Fondation d'Entreprise Ricard. It was the artist Nel Beloufa who had an exhibit with movies, photos and weird sculptures of recycled/reused stuff, wich was about exploiting space, challenging proportions and making weird structures that you couldn't quite understand the context to. It was for example some booby traps that were ...
