Off to London!

Yep the time has come... only ten months two weeks and five days since i left it, i am getting ready to jet off back to the good ol' U of K! but fear not Bergen, i'm only going for a holiday and will be back before you know it ;)

The Boyfriend and I are spending a week in London, doing touristy things, seeing family (his first time!!),hanging out with my best friends and most importantly eating lots of yummy yummy food, and then sadly he has to come back home while i skip off to Leicester my home town to see friends, take my theory test and generally get very drunk.

Lots of plans for blog posts but i'll see how much time i actually get to put them into action ;) expect a slew of pictures when i get back.

I got the sunshine award!

Yay i woke up and found that Hot Pink Combat Boots had given me the sunshine award! Thank you!!!

sunshine_award by Selina Boullin

I have to say it was the perfect time to receive it as i was on my way to the hell that is the dentist and from there the day only got worse! think money troubles, constant pain and a lot of tears but today is a new day and the sun is shining, so i shall stop my moaning and get down to business!

The rules for the Sunshine Award are: 
1. Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them.
2. Tell us something about yourself.
3. Nominate 10 other bloggers.
4. And let them know you awarded them!

1. Done! see beginning of post.
2. Some things about me....
 I once wore pink everyday for about a year, i don't mean like head to toe in pink but at least something on my body was pink everyday. I was that cool!
I am incredibly messy but actually quite organised and dream of one day having a craft room (yes i do intend to be one of THOSE people, who spend far to much and long in craft shops buying stuff they don't need-lets face it, i already am) and in my craft room with be a wall made of shelves and drawers all different sizes for me to organise my buttons and ribbons etc. again cool much!?
I was a vegetarian for 22 years until i decided to stop last summer and start eating chicken, my sister was a vegetarian for 15 years until she decided to stop a couple of years ago and now she really enjoys steak! goes to prove that children brought up vegetarians are not being brainwashed by their parents into hating meat.

3. nominate people! I hate to admit my uncoolness but i really don't know ten people on blogger who might actually re blog this! i tend to be a bit of a fan girl and just silently stalk cooler peoples pages but i will give it ago anyway.

1. Out with the new, in with the old
2. What Katie's Baking
3. Full measure of happiness
4. A Bicycle Built For Two
5. Jenna Laughs
6. From Freeways to Fjords
7. The Beara Necessities
8. Frozen in Finland
9. S C H A D E N F R E U D E (my little sister)
10. The Veritableshiz

4. Let them know... on it!

Hope everyone is having a wonderful wednesday :)

Craft Fair Bergen

So as it turns out i didn't go to the gig afterall.

The sun was shining when i met Ida, who looked wondeful and summery in her all blue summer dress and turquoise accessories.


After we had a cool beer,and an alcoholic ice cream sundae for me (because who cares about weight loss when it is so sunny out!?) we decided to just wander around town.

We visited craft shops to find wool for a project of mine and had a lot of fun dreaming up new projects, jewelry making, sweet making, dress making etc...

As i made my way back to the byban i noticed a large white marque over at festplassen and asked Ida if she knew what it was, apparently and so fittingly it was a craft fair. It felt only right to go and have a nosey.


Inside there were tons of beautiful handmade objects for me to drool over, from beautiful kitchen wear to some pretty interesting fashion pieces, but the thing that caught my eye the most were these little beauties...

Pink and Cupcakey! it's like they were meant for me!!

Unfortunately the price was a little out of my range so i had to leave them behind *le sob* but i did take the lady who made them's card so fingers crossed i can get me a pair when i have a job.
The stall didn't only have jewelry but also cards, books and pillows with her illustrations on. I especially liked this pillow

monroe pillow

The artists name is Annlaug Auestad and she has a blog and a website which i suggest you visit so you can see more of her wonderful work.

Also if you too like Ida enjoy turquoise accesories you should head over to The Beara Necessities, as she is holding an awesome giveaway where you could win this...
and all you have to do is leave her a comment about why YOU like summer! simple pimple!

I have been thinking about doing some reviews/blog posts about some awesome places in Bergen for a while, but i never get round to taking pictures while i am there or if i do i tend to start a post and not finish it. However tonight as i sit at my computer wired from the coffee martini i recently enjoyed at one of my favorite bars, i thought what better time to tell my lovely blogger friends about it.

"Ujevnt" or uneven in its English translation is located in the center of Bergen, from the outside you can't really tell that a wonderful and cosy a bar is hidden beyond. In fact i walked past the bar many times for months on my way to university and only ever noted that they had very yellow plastic 70's style stools in the windows, it wasn't until i stepped inside one day that i truly realised what a great place it is.¨
