December was such a lovely month, it was great to spend time at home in Norway charging my batteries. Here are some things to look back at & cherish from this winter;

I turned 30, which was not as bad as I thought it would be!

I got those cool balloons from Søstrene Grene btw, they have a great selection of part supplies but also just other random bits & bobs to brigthen your life.

Walking around beautiful Stavanger and looking at all the cute & colourful doll-houses along the harbour. If you haven’t been there I highly recommend it, especially the old town located right next to the city centre with a collection of 18th- and 19th-century white wooden houses. A very idyllic place!

Spent many evenings cozying up on the couch watching Netflix & eating Christmassy treats…

Speaking of treats, I made these super delicious gluten & dairyfree gingerbread bisquits! It was my first time trying to make them from scratch and I’m so proud that they turned out so great, especially since it’s quite hard doing glutenfree baking.. I used this recipe which unfortunately is in Norwegian but there are probably similar ones in English out there.

I received these prints from my dear Instagram friend @oh_corrin which I can’t wait to hang up on the wall.

And I was so lucky to win this super cute DONUT WORRY pin made by the talented Jesiiii on a giveaway hosted by my sweet friend Sprinkledlife.

As it has been very cold I have basically been living in these soft knitted slippers from H&M & woollen jumpers like this one from Oysho..

Other than that I much enjoyed spending some quality time with family & friends, eating good food, exchanging gifts and being merry! Oh and I have been obsessed with pinecones lately..anyone else?

  1. Those houses are so colorful! I wish we had houses like that in California. Your gift wrapping is perfect! I’m a sucker for nicely wrapper gifts :)

  2. Thank you Diana, the colourful houses is one of the things I love about Scandinavia.. It’s so nice to walk around different neighbourhoods to spot different combinations. And I’m the same about nicely wrapped gifts.. I was particularly happy with the way this turned out :-)
