Chop chop

Jeg skal vre rlig og si at det ikke er bare, bare med en liten en p vei midt i leilighetssalg og husjakt i en helt annen del av landet. Derfor var det helt ubeskrivelig deilig starte dagen hos Slve p Spagetti i dag. Det er kanskje ikke s lett se akkurat her, men hret har ikke bare blitt kortere, det er lysere ogs. Skikkelig vrhr med andre ord. N skal jeg sren meg blafre med hret resten av dagen!

Book time med Slve her.

I'll be honest and tell you guys that it's not easy with a little one on the way in the middle of selling our apartment and looking for houses in a whole other city. That's why it felt so damn nice to visit my hairdresser, Slve, today. Maybe it's not that easy to see, but my hair actually went both blonder and shorter. I love it! Now I'll throw my hair around the rest of the day.

The May list



Jeg har hoppet over et par lister, men n er den tilbake!

1. WEAR MORE EARTH COLOURS |So I guess most of us know a couple of shades that fit our skin tones extra well. For me that is earthy colours like beige and powdery pink. Still I end up wearing way to much black. This month I have got to start thinking about what actually suits me again.
2. FIND SOME RAD EARRINGS |
I'm in love with the pierced earring trend going on right now and I'm dying to find a pair of golden beauties to welcome the spring with. Maybe one of these?
3. END THE PARKA SEARCH |This one is a lot more difficult than it sounds (trust me). Please let me know if you know of any, I want one so bad!
4. TRUST MY GUTT |
With all the stylish people all around the world wide web it's easy to get lost. Especially during spring and summer I think. I always look back at my outfits during hot days not knowing what I was thinking (it is kind of fun, though). So I'm definitely going to trust my gutt a bit more this spring!
5. EXPERIMENT WITH MY NAILS |
I won't go all crazy, but I think it so cute with just a little black sticker or something on a pale pink nail. Never wear it myself, but I'm definitely going to try. Just need to get better on the patience thing, I always ruin my nails while waiting for them to dry. Found a few excellent tips on afterdrk though (check it out, I've already bookmarked it).
6. FIND A SUMMER SCENT |
I was so in love with my Black Saffron scent from Byredo, but now I need something new. I think the pregnancy has made my nose all crazy. Any nice scents to recommend? PS! I'm a sucker for nice bottles too.
7. PRACTICE BRAIDS |
There's so many nice messy braids around, and I wan't them too. Check out my hair board on Pinterest to see more styles I'm going to practice this month.
8. MAKE MATERNITY OUTFITS EXCITING |So I've reached the point where I think it's really boring not to be able to wear anything I'd like. I see those gorgeous crop tops and pieces I can't wear instead of the opportunities. That has got to end!

Happy weekend

Endelig helg igjen! Og jeg gleder meg skikkelig til endelig f tatt en ordentlig titt i Porter Magazine. Jeg fikk aldri tak i det frste, s dette blir spennende. Net-a-porter leverer jo aldri fra seg noe drlig virker det som, s jeg regner med at jeg har en skikkelig kosestund i vente. Noen av dere som har lest det? Uansett, nyyt fredagen!

-
Finally weekend again! And I can't wait to finally take a closer look on Porter Magazine. I never got a hold of the first one, so this is going to be exciting. But then again, net-a-porter never seem to deliver a bad product, so I bet I have a great time ahead of me. Have you read it yet? Anyway, enjoy your Friday sweeties!

In today's bag



Det er virkelig sommerstemning her i grden, og det merkes p innholdet i vesken ogs. Fuktighet er, som jeg har nevnt tidligere, enda viktigere. Solbriller ogs!

ULTRA RESTORATIVE CREME | Jeg har brukt Exuviance (alt fra rens til foundation) i over en mned n, og jeg har aldri vrt s fornyd med huden fr. Og dette kommer fra ei som ikke har hatt tro p den slags i det hele tatt. Denne kremen har jeg alltid med i vesken, og under sminken, for snne som meg som sliter med litt trr hud og nsker mer fukt og glans.
LIP GLOSS| Lip gloss minner meg egentlig veldig om videregende, men jeg synes det er s fint n nr solen skinner. Denne har forstrrende effekt p leppene, men gjr de litt trre, s det kan vre lurt med en vanlig lypsyl i bakhnd.
CREME BLUSH| Jeg elsker blush! Dessverre har den en tendens til forsvinne utover dagen, s da har jeg med denne som jeg smrer p kinnbena.
SUNGLASSES| Solbriller er med overalt. Disse er fra Prada.
HAND CREAM| Denne hndkremen er helt fantastisk. Et av mine favorittprodukter ret gjennom!

-
I'm having the best summer feeling these days, and you can even feel it in my bag. Moisturizers is, as I've mentioned earlier, even more important. Sunglasses too!

ULTRA RESTORATIVE CREME| I've been using Exuviance (everything from cleanser to foundation) for over a month now, and I've never been happier with my skin. This comes from someone who never believed in stuff like this. This cream I bring everywhere (and wear under my makeup), because it's perfect if you're struggeling with dry skin, like me, and keep dreaming of that perfect glow.
LIP GLOSS| Lip gloss kind of reminds me of high school, but I think it looks so good when the sun is shining. This one has a plumping effect, but it makes my lips kind of dry after a while, so I recommend bringing a lip balm too.
CREME BLUSH| I love blush! Unfortunately it tend to disappear during the day, so I bring this one that I apply to my cheek bones.
SUNGLASSES| Can't go a day without sunglasses.
HAND CREAM| This hand cream is simply amazing. One of my favourite products all year around.

Dette er virkelig sommeren hvor alt skal skje p en gang! En gang mot slutten av sommeren kommer babygutten vr, men fr det flytter vi. Det har ikke vrt den letteste avgjrelsen, men n gleder vi oss skikkelig. Vi vender nemlig nesene tilbake til hjembyen vr, lesund! Det er helt vilt tenke p og det er s mye jeg kommer til savne med Oslo. Likevel er jeg sikker p at det kommer til bli fantastisk endelig vre nrmere familien igjen. I tillegg skal det bli skikkelig deilig med hus og hage! Juhu!

Det blir ogs temmelig store forandringer p bloggen i lpet av sommeren og jeg bare gleder meg til ha dere med p alt, bde her og p Instagram. Instagram blir nok en liten reserveblogg nr flyttingen str p som verst tenker jeg. Flg meg p @sarastrandno!

This is like the summer when everything is happening all at once! In the end of the summer our little baby boy will arrive, but before that we're moving. It hasn't been an easy decision, but now we can't wait. Because we're actually heading back to our hometown, lesund! It's crazy to think about and there's so much I'm going to miss about Oslo. Still I'm sure it's going to be amazing to be near our families again. And of course to finally switch out the apartment with a house!

There's also going to be some big changes for the blog and I can't wait to have you with me in all of this, both here and on Instagram. I guess Instagram will be my blog number two when we're to busy moving. Follow me at @sarastrandno.

Sunglasses for brekfast

Det er ikke noe problem karre seg ut av senga grytidlig p morgenen nr det er solbriller og kos med Stylemag og Krogh Optikk som str p frokostmenyen. For er det en ting jeg synes er skikkelig gy p tilbehrsfronten, s er det solbriller. Og selv om jeg ofte ender opp med et par klassikere fra Ray-Ban, s er det nr det kommer til solbriller at jeg har de mest crazy fargene og fasongene garderoben.

Jeg har imidlertid hatt en godt ye for Prada en stund, og det er definitivt disse som blir med til Lanzarote p lrdag. Ingenting er som et par kule solbriller, sommerkjole og deilig lesestoff p stranden!

-
It's no problem getting out of bed early in the morning when it's eyewear and breakfast with Stylemag and Krogh Optikk on the menu. Because if there's one thing I think is fun when it comes to accessories, it's sunglasses. And even though I often end up with a pair classics from Ray-Ban, it's when it comes to sunglasses I have the most crazy colours and shapes in my wardrobe.

However, I've been watching the sunglasses from Prada for a while, and it's definitely the one on the picture that comes along to Lanzarote this Saturday. There's nothing like a pair of cool sunnies, a summer dress and magazines on the beach!

Morning coffee

Er det en ting jeg er glad jeg ikke blir kvalm av til tross for graviditeten, s er det kaffe. Dagen har liksom ikke begynt ordentlig uten en varm kopp. Vanligvis gr det i traktekaffe, men her om dagen fikk jeg teste et par nye smaker fra Nescaf som var overraskende gode, s i dag ble det Caf Vanilla. Min favoritt s langt! Jeg er generelt veldig glad kaffe som er tilsatt litt smak (stjunkie), og det skummet er jo himmelsk.

Hvis dere vil smake, s husk bli med i konkurransen om en tur til New York. Bare stem p din favoritt, s er du med i trekningen om en tur for to og flere andre fine premier.

-
If there's one thing I'm glad I don't feel sick of even though I'm pregnant, it's coffee. I mean, the day doesn't really start until you've had a warm mug. The other day I recieved some new flavours from Nescaf that tastes surprisingly good, so today I went for Caf Vanilla. My favourite so far! I'm generally a big fan of adding flavours to coffee (everything sweet), and that creamy frothy thing they got going on is amazing. Noen av dere som har smakt dem?

If you give it a try, remember to enter the contest where you can win a trip to New York. Simply vote for your favourite, and you're in.

Me time at Spagetti

Hurra, jeg er brunette igjen! I dag var jeg nemlig innom Slve, favorittfrisr nummer 1. Han har byttet salong siden sist jeg var hos han (jeg fulgte selvflgelig etter), s i dag var jeg hos Spagetti i Bogstadveien for frste gang. Salongen var en skikkelig positiv overraskelse, og jeg gleder meg til neste gang allerede! Jeg har jo ikke vrt hos frisren p over nesten fire mneder i frykt for kaste opp i frisrstolen. Den rakkeren i magen alts! Resultatet fr dere se i morgen, men det ligger en liten sniktitt p Instagram allerede.

For bestille time med Slve kan dere klikke her eller ringe salongen p 22 46 38 94.

I'm a brunette again! Today I visited Slve, my hairdressen number one. He's switched salons since my last visit (I followed of course), so today I visited Spaggeti in Bogstadveien for the first time. The salon was a really nice surprise and I had just a good time. I mean, it's been almost four months because of my fear of throwing up in the chair. This little baby like to cause a little drama! Anyway, you can see the result tomorrow, but there's a sneak peek on Instagram already.

The January list so far



Januarlisten er liksom min vri p nyttrsforsett. Bare med mindre og mer kortsiktige ml. Likevel viste de seg vre vanskeligere n enn jeg hadde sett for meg. Her kommer en liten oppdatering!

1. WEAR MORE LIPSTICK |I actually do wear more lipstick now than I did before, but still I keep forgetting to put it on. However, my current favorite is Grand Rouge (34. Rouge Bordeaux) from Yves Rocher.
2. INVEST IN PIECES THAT LAST |
So the only thing I've bought exept grocaries and underwear so far, is snow boots. Not a fashion shoe, just good quality snow boots that I know will last for years. Perfect for playing in the snow with my daughter!
3. DON'T HASITATE |
I'm totally failing this one. I actually left that snow boot I talked about in the store, only to go back and buy it in another store (luckily it was on sale there).
4. WEAR MORE JEWELRY |
Yes, failing this one too. I just forget to put in on in the morning. Any ideas on how to get better on this one?
5. TRY NEW COLOURS |
I have the plans ready on this one. There's actually a few light blue items in my closet right now. The weather makes it difficult though, so still going for my darkest and warmest clothes.
6. BLOG MORE |
Well, there's at least one post per day, which is better than it was during December.
7. GET HOLD OF A SMALLER CAMERA |Still no camera in sight, do you have one to recommend?

-
The January list is kind of my version of the New Years resolution. Just smaller and more short term. Still, it turned out to be quite a bit harder than I imagined. Here's how it's going so far.

The January list



Det er noe helt spesielt med januar. For selv ingenting egentlig er forandret, er det en mned full av hp, drmmer og nye ml. Jeg bruker egentlig aldri skrive nyttrsforsett, men i r har jeg kommet p en ny vri. Nemlig mnedsforsett. Nyttrsforsettene blir jo gjerne glemt like fort som de blir skriblet ned, men om jeg skriver en liste hver mned med litt mindre ml derimot, da m jeg handle ganske kjapt. Her kommer alts den frste fasjonable listen i r! Kanskje dere har noen flere nsker til bloggen?

1. WEAR MORE LIPSTICK |This one is already going very well. I always love lipstick on others, so why not wear it myself. It looks so chic! Especially during winter.
2. INVEST IN PIECES THAT LAST |
I haven't been shoppping at all lately, and it's going to stay that way. If I'm buying something, it's going to be quality and something I really want.
3. DON'T HASITATE |
Ok, so I tend to spend a week researching and hasitating before buying something. That way items often get sold out before I make a move. This month I'm going to trust my instincts.
4. WEAR MORE JEWELRY |
I'm suddently addicted to gold, and I would love to stack up with some more rings. Especially after I started following a brand called The Hatters on Instagram.
5. TRY NEW COLOURS |
No, I won't go all crazy, but I really miss something else than black, white and grey in my closet.
6. BLOG MORE |
This is a good one, I hope? I'll try my best to create more and better content for you guys. Even though outfit posts is kind of difficult with the weather and holiday right now.
7. GET HOLD OF A SMALLER CAMERA |
Unfortunately my 7d had an accident and need some service. So it's time to invest in a smaller camera. I need one anyway, so it sould be fun with a camera that's easy to bring everywhere.

-
It's something special about January. Even though nohting really has changed, it's a month full of hope, dreams and new goals. Usually I don't make any New Years resolutions, but this year I've thought of something new. Monthly resolutions. Because let's be honest, we all tend to forget the New Years resolutions just as fast as we write them down. If I write a smaller and easier list every month however, I have to act fast. So here it goes, the first fashionable list this year! Do you have any wishes or ideas blog wise?

Happy New Year

Godt nyttr kjre dere! Hper dere har en herlig feiring.Vi feirer med gode venner, og jeg gleder meg allerede til vekke Mina igjen, s hun fr se rakettene nr klokken slr tolv. Det er s koselig!

-
Happy New Year dear ones! I hope you're having a blast. We're celebrating with good friends, and I can't wait to wake up my daughter again at midnight, so she can see the firework. It's the best part!

Best blog moments 2013


I kicked of the new year with a trip to London with Ghd.

Together with H&M and a few other bloggers, I hosted trade night with our readers. Such a fun night!


I spent a lot of time in lesund with my family. Home is where the heart is!


The balcony finally got ready for spring and I loved spending the mornings out there.


My obsession for denim on denim continued.



I was featured in a lot of magazines like Who What Wear, The Zoe Report, Grazia, Costume and Elle to mention some. Can't even explain how fun that is. I'm so greatful!


I went to La Gacilly in France with Yves Rocher, honestly the best trip this year.


I mean, look at this place!


I went for it and started my own digital content agency, We Don't Do Print, together with my partner in crime. And those hot summer days at work were the best!


I finally passed 10 000 followers on Insagram, and felt so honored and thankful that you guys like my lifestyle photos.


This lunch break photo was actually one of my most popular photos in 2013.

I went to Stockholm three times this year, and the second time it was all fun and enjoyment with my best friend. The best weekend!


I started blogging for Side2.



When fall arrived I did a collaboration with Diesel and Fashiolista.

I also want to take this opportunity to thank you. For reading, commenting and being you! I can't wait to start a new blog year.

Christmas essentials



Jeg er endelig p plass i lesund, og selv om "hjemme" er i Oslo, er det ingen annen plass jeg kunne tenke meg feire jul. N er det bare fnne frem koseklrne, julefilmer og alt som hrer julen til!

1.BOOK | If there's time, I always love to relax with a good book or magazines.
2.MUG| A good mug is essential, because I always drink a loot of good coffee and other hot drinks during Christmas.
3.CHOCOLATE| Well, no Christmas without chocolate.
4.BEANIE| Even though it's not snow this year, I always feel like wearing big beanies and knitted pieces.
5.THE HOLIDAY | This is one of my aboslute favorite Christmas movies. Mr. Napkin Head <3
6.HEADPHONES| For when listening to Michael Bubls Christmas songs.
7.RED LIPS | This is really essential. And nice if you don't bother putting on a lot of other makeup.
8.COMFY SWEATER| I'm definitely staying in my cozy clothes tonight.
9.CANDLE | I love candles during winter, especially during Christmas. Sets the perfect mood!
10.GLITTER|
Glitter on the tree, glitter on the nails, glitter everywhere!

-
I'm finally in lesund again, and even though our home is in Oslo, there's no other place I would want to celebrate Christmas. Now it's time to take out those big woolen socks, Christmas movies and everything that feels like Christmas!

In my Tuesday bag

Etter en skikkelig helaften med Side2 og alle de herlige bloggerne i gr kveld, er det ekstra deilig med en rolig formiddag i dag. N skal jeg og lillegull p kafdate og trttetrynet kamufleres med min nye knallrosa leppestift-favoritt. Rosa lepper blir se p bloggen om ikke lenge, med andre ord!

-
After an amazing evening with
Side2and all the lovely bloggers there yesterday, it's really nice with a slow morning today. However it's time to hide this tired face with my new pink (!) lipstick and hit the town. Pink lips are coming up on the blog, in other words!

Today's essentials

I dag er det jlerier som gjelder, for to av de flotteste folka jeg kjenner skal gifte seg. I kveld blir det hla i taket med andre ord!

ILLUMINATOR - I don't use this one every day, but a little extra glow is a must today.
RINGS - Stacking up my golden rings.
BLUSH - Going for pink cheek bones to my navy dress.
HEELS - Don't know if I dare to bring these out on the ice, but one can hope.
PERFUME - A few splashes of this one, and I'm ready to go.

-
Jewelry, high heels and nice makeup is the only right thing to go for today, as two of the dearest people in my life are getting married in only two hours. Can't wait!

Birthday girl



Er det noe man aldri blir for gammel til, s er det glede seg til bursdag. Jeg ble overrasket p kontoret med lunsj og kake, og n har jeg ftt besk fra Sunnmre. Tid for skikkelig familiekos i heimen med andre ord. Pfyll i sminkehyllen er veldig gy det ogs, spesielt nr pfyllet er Taboo fra Chanel, highlighter fra Bobbi Brown og ny parfyme. Greit, parfymen var fra meg til meg, men det er lov. Tusen, tusen takk for alle bursdagshilsener p Instagram ogs, dere er s gode!

-
There's something you'll never be too old for, and looking forward to you birthday is one of them. My colleagues surprised me with lunch and cake, and now it's family time at my place. New stuff in the bathroom shelf is really nice too, especially when it's Taboo from Chanel, highlighter from Bobbi Brown and a new perfume. Ok, the perfume is from me to me, but that's allowed. Thank you so much for your birthday wishes on Instagram too, you're the best!

Weekend jewelry

Det er ikke lenge siden jeg ikke brukte gull i det hele tatt. Enten det var snakk om smykker eller veskedetaljer. N er det plutselig det jeg vanligvis tar p meg. Favorittene for yeblikket er det dere ser over, og de har vrt p meg hele helgen. N mangler jeg bare en gullklokke!

BRACELET - Love thin bracelets you don't even notice until you take a closer look.
BANGLE - Finally a bracelet without a chain that fits my wrist.
THIN RING - Simple, but different.
RING (similar here) - A classic.
PEARL EARRING- My latest obsession, pearls.
PIERCING INSPIRED EARRING (similar here)- And piercing inspired jewelry of course.

-
A while ago I didn't wear gold at all. Not jewelry, not bag details or anything. Now I'm going for gold all over and these are my current favorites, been wearing them all weekend. The only thing missing is a golden watch!


My Instaweek

@sarastrandno
Denne uken passerte jeg 9000 flgere p Instagram, og jeg m bare takke alle dere som flger meg. Det er skikkelig gy og jeg setter veldig stor pris p det. Jeg trenger imidertid flere profiler snike p, s om dere har et tips eller to blir jeg veldig glad om dere legger igjen en kommentar. Enten det er mote, mat, interir eller hva som helst!

-
This week I passed 9000 followers on Instagram, and I just have to thank you guys for following me. It's so fun and I really appreciate eigh one of you. However, I need more profiles to stop buy, so please leave a comment if you know any inspiring people. Fashion, food, interior or anything!

My airport fix

Det virker som det bare blir flere og flere turer innom flyplasser i lpet av et r. Noe jeg synes er helt greit. Det er noe magisk med stemningen der. Selv om grunnen til at man reiser ikke alltid er like koselig.

1.CONCEALER | I guess we all feel a bit tired after sitting on a plane for a while, but a dash of concealer under the eyes always make me feel fresh again.
2. GLAM SHINE | I wrote about this one a few days ago, and berry lips make a travel face look so much better.
3. MAGAZINE | No airport stay without magazines. They turn the waiting into a pleasure.
4. PHONE | A charged phone is key for a good stay at the airport if you ask me.
5. BLUSH | This cream blush is the best blush I've ever tried and it's perfect for a quick fix at the airport.
6. MOISTURIZER | My skin tend to get a bit dry after a while on the airport and up in the air, so I always keep some kind of moisturizer in my travel bag.
7. FLATS | No heels when travelling

-
It feels like I'm heading for the airport more and more frequent each year. Which I kind of like, because I've always been fascinated by that place. It's just something magical about the atmosphere at airports. Even though the reason for travelling isn't always as nice.

Home office

Til tross for nye kontorer, er det utrolig deilig med hjemmekontor en dag i blant. Spesielt p en mandag. Skulle bare nske jeg ikke bakte s mange kokoskjeks i gr, for n sitter jeg igjen med mageknip og skremmende f kjeks igjen i kakeboksen.

-
Even though we have new offices, it?s so sweet with home office once in a while. Especially on a Monday. I just wish I didn?t make that many coconut cookies yesterday, because now I?ve got stomach ache and one almost empty cookie box.

In my Saturday clutch

Lrdag med familietid og bytur betyr minimalt innhold i vesken. Bare det aller ndvendigste!

1. Clutch fromComme des Garons.
2. Iphone case fromVicotoria?s Secret(similarhere).
3. Wayfarers fromRay-Ban
4. Lip gloss fromClarins

-
Saturday city stroll with the family, means only bringing the essentials!

My favorite shops in Stockholm


I?ve been to Stockholm a few times now, but I don?t know every street and shop just yet. Still I?ve got some favorite shops during my stays there. And even more after recommendations from you guys. The first stop is my newest favorite& Other Stories. Here you can find anything from nice shoes to cosmetics. I found the best face cream there for example. The shop is located in Stockholm?s most popular, and my favorite, shopping street, Biblioteksgatan.


Not far from & Other Stories there?s a small street with three more favorites.Whyred,Stella McCartneyogBLK Denim(Mster Samuelsgatan). And almost just around the corner there?s the newPradastore(Birger Jarlsgatan 11) which is definitely worth a visit.

Also I always stop byFace Stockholm(they have some of the best facial masks),Sturegallerian(stureplan 4),hlns City(Klarabergsgatan 50) andNK(Hamngatan 18-20). Can?t wait until my next trip to Stockholm!

Stockholm next


I morgen tidlig drar jeg p en etterlengtet venninnetur til Stockholm. Vi har ikke lagt en eneste plan (ok, en handleliste), annet enn at vi skal kose oss.S legg gjerne igjen en kommentar hvis dere har noen tips til butikker vi m innom, kafeer og restauranter verdt beske eller hva som helst.

-
I?m leaving for a weekend trip to Stockholm with my best friend tomorrow. We have no plan (just a tiny shopping list), other than enjoying ourselves. So you?re very welcome to leave a comment if you know the city better and have tips when it comes to shops, coffee shops and restaurants or really anything.

Instagram er min lille lommeblogg og det er s gy at mange av dere er der ogs. N trenger jeg imidlertid litt pfyll, s legg gjerne igjen link til din profil. Meg finner dere p@sarastrandno.

Instagram works like a little pocket blog for me and it?s so fun to find you guys in there too. However, I need more refreshing content, so you?re very welcome to leave a link to your profile. You find me at@sarastrandno.

Changes

Det er ikke det at jeg ikke liker hye hler, men sneakers er bare s utrolig deilig av og til. Jeg bruker de til alt fra jeans til kjoler. N begynner det sakte, men sikkert bli litt kaldere ute ogs, og jeg trengte et par som var litt varmere og mer fornuftig. Forandring fryder! At de har litt leopardprint er selvflgelig ikke feil det heller.

Og nr vi frst snakker om forandringer. Det er ikke bare p bena det blir forandringer. Jeg er kjempestolt av vre en av de nye bloggerne p Side2! Bloggen vil ha samme innhold og samme adresse, den vil bare f en litt annen innpakning etterhvert. Jeg gleder meg veldig!

-

It's not that I'm not a fan of heels, it's just that sneakers are so good to wear sometimes. I wear them with everything from jeans to dresses. It's slowly becoming a bit colder out too, and I needed a pair that's a bit warmer and reasonable. Change is good! And of course, the leopard print is not wrong at all.

And when we're talking about changes. It's not only my legs that's heading for new times. I'm proud to announce that I'm one of the new bloggers at Norwegian Side2. And because of that my blog will look a bit different after a while. Same content and same address, just another wrapping. I can't wait!

Happy Sunday

Som mange andre jenter har jeg en veldig svak for magasiner med fine cover, og stsaker. Og etter en travel uke, s m jeg innrmme at det var ganske s deilig vkne til regnvr i dag. For det betyr kosedag inne med film og baking. Oppskrift p mini cannolis finner dere her. Nam nam! Hper dere har en herlig sndagen dere ogs.

-

As most girls I'm a sucker for magazines with pretty covers, and sweets. And after a busy week I have to admit that it was kind of nice waking up to discover that it's raining. Because that means cozy family time inside with baking and a movie. You can find the recipe on mini cannoli's here. Yummy! Wish you a great Sunday too!

Happy Sunday

Jeg har ftt fullstendig dilla p bananpannekaker. Det er virkelig den perfekte frokosten! Masse nring i tillegg til at det smaker kjempegodt. Spesielt etter en tur i blbrskogen. N trenger bare trne litt ny lakk, s er det tid for badedag med mini. Nyt sndagen og bananpannekakene!

2 moste bananer

2 egg

3 ss grovt mel

1 ts sukker

1 ts bakepulver

3 ss havregryn 

Miks alt sammen i en bolle og stek p middels varme. Den rren gir ca. 6-7 pannekaker.

-

I'm so hooked on banana pancakes. It's really the perfect breakfast! A lot of energy and a great taste. Especially after you've been out picking blueberries yourself. Now my toe nails just need a little polish and we're ready to hit the beach. Enjoy your Sunday! The best day of the week.

Lately on Instagram

I lesund pser regnet ned enda, s det er ikke s lett f tatt antrekksbilder for yeblikket. Dere kan imidlertid flge med p Instagram (@sarastrandno) for litt hyppigere oppdateringer og sm bilder som ikke blir publisert her p bloggen. Takk til alle som hjalp til med velge neglelakk i dag forresten. Flertallet vinner selvflgelig, s det ble den bl! Jeg kan vise dere senere.

-

The rain has been pouring down here for days now, so it's not that easy to capture any of my outfits. However you can follow me on Instagram (@sarastrandno) for more updates and small photos that won't be published on the blog. Thanks for helping me decide on the nail polish dilemma today btw. I went for the blue one! I'll show you later.

Happy weekend

I kveld reiser jeg til lesund og blir i hele tre uker, s n er det siste sommerkos p balkongen p en stund. Jeg synes det er s fresht dekorere vannglassene litt nr det er varmt ute. Man skal jo drikke en hel del vann, s hvorfor ikke gjre det litt ekstra fristende? Elsker isbitene som Camilla viste her, men i dag brukte jeg pepperkakeformer til trykke ut vannmelon. Veldig fresht, og kjempegodt! Anbefaler ta en ekstra titt p moteserien i siste Stylemag forresten, love it.

Tonight I'm leaving for my hometown and staying for three weeks, so this is the last summer day on the balcony for a while. I think it's so nice to decorate the water glasses a little bit during summer. After all you're going to drink a lot of water, so why don't make it a little more tempting? I love the ice cubes that Camilla showed on her blog a while ago, but today I used shapes to slice the watermelon. Super fresh and it tastes great too!

One night

I dag skal jeg og kjresten unne oss en natt p hotell og jeg gleder meg skikkelig! Dette er med i clutchen.

CLUTCH - Selected Femme (similar here)

SUNSCREEN - Chanel

WALLET - Tiger of Sweden (similar here)

SUNGLASSES - Carrera

LIPSTICK - The Body Shop

-

Me and my boyfriend is going to spend the night at a hotel here in Oslo tonight and I can't wait! This is what I'll carry in my clutch.

Happy Sunday!

Ingenting er som starte sndagen med kaffe og en skikkelig sukkerbombe. Er det helg, s er det helg. Hvis dere nsker lage amerikanske pannekaker selv, s finner dere oppskriften under her. Ha en herlig sndag!

-50 g smr

- 2,5 melk

- 2 egg

- 3 dl hvetemel

- 2 ts bakepulver 

- 1 ss sukker

- 1/2 ts salt

Smelt smret og hell det i melken. Deretter visper du i eggene. Dette skal helles over i en strre bolle etterp, s en skl gr fint. Bland hvetemel, bakepulver, salt og sukker i en bolle. S kan du helle i vsken mens du rrer. Jeg bruker mikser. La rren st ca. 10 minutter for f den beste konsistensen. Nr du steker pannekakene, beregn ca. to spiseskeer per pannekake.

-

There's nothing like kicking off a Sunday with coffee and a huge sugar bomb. I mean, the weekend is for enjoying. Wish you a great Sunday!

La Gacilly vol.2

N skulle jeg jo egentlig ha vrt tilbake i Norge, men det som skulle vre en mellomlanding i Paris ble til en natt i Paris. Jeg har aldri opplevd s drlig service som med Air France, men heldigvis har vi hatt en helt herlig tur fr alt styret. I tillegg fikk jeg og Josefine brukt sinetrynet og vist litt girl power. Det er jo aldri feil!

La Gacilly og Yves Rocher har i alle fall gitt oss minner for livet og det vrt s deilig vre p tur. Jeg, Cathrine og Elise hadde den koseligste natten med bare tre timer svn, men likevel ble den hvite blazeren med ut i Paris gater i natt. Det er noe helt spesielt med kunne sitte p en liten restaurant midt i gaten og nyte fransk mat. Likevel er det p tide prve komme seg hjem igjen en gang til.

-

So now I should have been back in Norway, but what was supposed to be a short stop in Paris turned into a night in Paris. I've never experienced worse service than we did with Air France, but luckily we have been having the best time before all that. But then again me and Josefine got to show off our angry face and demonstrate a little girl power. Which is never wrong!

La Gacilly and Yves Rocher gave us so nice memories and it's been a great trip. So even though me, Cathrine and Elise only slept for like three hours the white blazer came along for a walk in the streets of Paris tonight. It's something magical about sitting in a small restaurant in the middle of the street eating delicious food. But now we'll try to get back home again.

La Gacilly vol.1

I La Gacilly er det strlende sol og det er virkelig vakkert her. Det er blomster og deilige dufter overalt og man kan se sm sjarmerende hus rundt hvert hjrne.

-

In La Gacilly the sun is shining and I'm just back from the spa. I also went for a swim in the pool and almost fell asleep at the balcony afterwardst. It's really so beautiful here and we're having a great time!

Happy weekend

P mandag reiser jeg til Frankrike, s n lader jeg opp med deilig helgefrokost og Vogue Paris p iPaden. Det strste problemet blir nok pakkingen, som vanlig. I det siste har jeg faktisk endt opp med ta med meg altfor lite, men denne gangen skal jeg planlegge litt bedre. Kanskje det hadde vrt interessant med et innlegg om pakking til mindre reiser?

-

On Monday I'm leaving for France, so now I'm charging the batteries with a nice weekend breakfast and Vogue Paris on the iPad. My biggest problem will be the packing, for sure. Lately I've actually packed too little when travelling, but this time I'll plan it better. Maybe I'll make a post about packing for smaller trips? Would that be interesting?

Summer on the balcony

Det er s utrolig deilig kunne sitte ute nyte en kopp kaffe og magasiner igjen! Og gleden var stor da jeg oppdaget at jeg hadde et ulest Costume i postkassen i tillegg til siste The Edit fra Net-A-Porter. Perfekt etter en dag i skogen! Hva har dere brukt fridagen til?

-

It's so nice that the weather finally allows us up north to enjoy a cup of coffee and magazines outside again! And luckily I found the latest Costume in my mailbox when we got home yesterday in addition to one unread The Edit from Net-A-Porter. Perfect after a day in the woods!

Cookies and lookbooks

Forrige uke var det presseuke her i Oslo, s i kveld har jeg kost med meg kaffe, kjeks og lookbooks. Denne er fra COS og det er uten tvil mye glede seg til!

-

Last week was press week here in Oslo, so tonight I've been enjoying coffee, cookies and lookbooks. This one is from COS and there's so much nice stuff coming up! But first there's summer.

 

Lunch at home

Det fles som evigheter siden sist jeg hadde hjemmekontor, s i dag har jeg virkelig kost meg med lunsjpause helt alene. Sjekk ut oppskriften p smoothien hos Mija forresten, den var skikkelig god!

-

It feels like forever since I worked at home, so today I really enjoyed having lunch all by myself. You should check out the recipe for this dish at Mija's btw, really good!

Happy Easter Holiday!

Pskeferie, ny kopp, hjemmelagde kjeks og kvalitetstid med mini. Det blir ikke stort bedre! Jeg har tatt ferie og n er beina godt plassert p bordet. Hper dere ogs koser dere masse dere ogs!

-

Easter Holiday, new mug, homemade cookies and quality time with my daughter. It doesn't get much better than that! I've taken a few days off and my legs are placed on the table. Hope you're having a great time too, wherever you are!

Morning glory

God morgen fra skrivepulten! I gr kveld satte jeg meg ned og laget nye print til ha p veggen, s i dag var det ekstra koselig starte dagen her. Ha en herlig sndag!

-

Thank God for Sunday's! Today we've been out in the sun all day, baked and just relaxed. Now it's time for coffee, muffins and Costume. Have a great Sunday evening!

Reading | Tomboy Style

Jeg var innom bokhandelen og plukket opp boken Tomboy Style i dag, s n blir det skikkelig kosestund i sofakroken. S utrolig mange inspirerende bilder og jeg elsker jo den litt guttete stilen!

-

I stopped by the bookstore to pick up the book Tomboy Style today, so now I'm in for a super cozy evening. So many inspiring photos and let's be honest, I love the tomboy style!

Her kommer et lite bildedryss fra grsdagens byttekveld med H&M. Silje fra KK har p seg en av kveldens mest ettertraktede plagg, nemlig en jakke fra See by Chloé som en av mine herlige lesere hadde med. En annen leser srget for at jeg kom hjem med drmmekpen i kamel, s dette var en skikkelig vellykket kveld. Veldig gy at alle fikk byttet til seg s mye fint og utrolig gy mte noen av dere leserne ogs!

-

Here's a few photos from last night's trade night with H&M. Silje is wearing on of the most desired items, a coat from See by Chloé which one of my readers brought. Another reader made sure I walked home with my dream coat in camel, so this night was definitely a success. So fun to meet some of my readers too!

Coffee break

Vi er midt i oppussing av rommet til den minste frkna i huset, s etter en dag p Ikea og jobbing gjr det ekstra godt med ferske tulipaner og helgestemning p stuebordet. Nyt lrdagskvelden!

We're in the middle of redecorating our daughter's bedroom, so after a long day of shopping and working it's extra nice with new tulips and that weekend feel on the table. Enjoy your Saturday night!

Her kommer et lite bildedryss fra grsdagens superlunsj med Stella. Vi fikk blant annet se p Stellas nye bilag, Stil. Og for en nerd som meg, s synes jeg det var kjempegy med det lille formatet. Jeg liker nr folk gjr noe annerledes og selv om bilaget er lite, s er det morsomt innhold i tillegg til at det fr plass i den minste veska uten gi senebetennelse. Jeg gleder meg til flere snne!

-

Here's some pictures from yesterday's lunch with the Norwegian magazine Stella. Awesome food, awesome hotel, awesome new mini magazine and awesome people. 

What I wore.

Lifestyle | Parga vol.3

I dag har vi hatt vr aller siste dag i Parga og selv om det skal bli deilig komme hjem, s er det kjempetrist. Heldigvis venter nye eventyr allerede p tirsdag, og jeg kan love dere at det blir hakket mer fasjonabelt enn famileferie.

-

Today we spent our last day in Parga and although it will be nice to come home, it's super sad. Luckily there's new adventures around the corner, because on Tuesday I'm going on a far more fashionable trip than family holiday. That I can say!

Lifestyle | Parga vol.2

N er det bare fire dager igjen i varmen, s de m nytes til det fulle. Enda mer is, enda mer bading og enda mer kos!

-

It's only four days left until we go home, so we have to make the best of it. More ice cream, more bathing and more of all the stuff we like!

Lifestyle | By the pool

I dag har vi hatt noen herlige timer p stranden fr vi avsluttet badedagen med bassenget. Kom over Elle Collections i det ene supermarkedet her nede ogs, s har kost meg med massevis av inspirasjon-pfyll. Selvflgelig fra visningene og alt rundt, men ogs kjempefin art direction.

VINN ANTREKK FRA VILA!

-

Today we had some great hours at the beach before we finished the day by the pool. I also found the Elle Collections in one of the supermarkets today, so I had a blast. Awesome art direction and lots of inspiration!

Lifestyle | Parga vol.1

Ferie er helt himmelsk. Og Parga lever definitivt opp til forventningene! Det blir litt mindre oppdateringer her inne enn til vanlig, men dere kan selvflgelig flge meg p Instagram (sarastrandno)!

I gr inviterte Vixen og Laroche Chablis en liten gjeng bloggere til sjmat og vinsmaking hos Onda. En helt herlig sommerkveld med deilig drikke, mat og en gjeng flotte folk. Tusen takk! Det kommer en liten filmsnutt ogs i lpet av dagen, s det er bare og flge med.

-

Yesterday Vixen and Vinordia invited a small group of blogger to eat sea food and drink some wine at a great restaurant here in Oslo, Onda. It was a fabolous summer night with delicious drink, food and awesome people. Thank you so much! There's a film coming up too, so check in later. 

My morning

Mini var p miniferie, og jeg hadde den deiligste morgenen p det jeg kan huske. Det var helt magisk sove til jeg vknet av meg selv, spise frokosten p balkogen, bla i magasiner jeg egentlig hadde lest allerede og snike p Instagram.

-

Mini was on a mini holiday, and I had the most relaxing morning ever. It was just magical to sleep as long as I felt like, eat breakfast on the balcony, read magazines and sneak around on Instagram. 

Lifestyle | Sunday on the balcony

Photo/Private.

Wearing leather skirt from Selected Femme, second hand sweater, sunglasses from Lindex, necklace from Zara and watch from Tommy Hilfiger.

Sndagspause p balkongen med nye magasiner, kaffe og litt Instagramtid var veldig riktig i dag. Hper dere ogs har en fin sndag, til tross for at den er preget av minnemarkeringer og rrende ord.

-

A Sunday break at the balcony with new magazines, coffee and some Instagram time was so right today. Hope you're having a great Sunday too! 

Lifestyle | Reunion coffee

Wearing leather skirt from Selected Femme, sweater from Zara, bag from Decadent and sunnies from Giorgio Armani.

I dag hadde jeg en etterlengtet gjenforeningskaffe med Una som har vrt i L.A altfor lenge. Vi koste oss med iskaffe hos det som litt tilfeldig har blitt min stamkafé, Gastro Café p Steen & Strm. Virkelig god mat, s stikk innom der om dere er i nrheten. N er det p tide med litt mer usunnheter og sofa. nsker dere en super kveld!

-

Met up with my Friend Una for a reunion coffee today. She's been in L.A for way too long! We enjoyed ice coffee at the place that I usually go to these days, Gastro Café. Love the food! Hope you've had an awesome Tuesday too. Now it's time for some more unhealthy stuff and the couch. Wish you an awesome evening!

Lifestyle | At the beach

Wearing vintage Levi's shorts, tank top from Bik Bok, my dad's old Ray Bans and second hand military jacket. 

Har hatt en helt herlig dag p Lutvann i dag. Rakk akkurat hjem fr regnvret kom ogs. Kjempedeilig bare slenge p seg et casual antrekk og vre ute hele dagen.

-

Been having a great day at the beach today. So sweet to just put on a casual outfit and be out all day. 

Lifestyle | Morning glory

Konfekt Studio/Annabel/Elen

I dag startet jeg dagen med strlende sol og blotting av tfis, iskaffe, doughnut og fotoshoot med Det Nye. Knallstart med andre ord! Resultatet fr dere se i Det Nye 20. juli.

-

Today I started my day with brilliant sun, ice coffee, doughnut and photo shoot with the Norwegian magazine Det Nye. A great morning! 

Lifestyle | Lunch break

Photos.Private & Kaja Wang.

Wearing sweater from DC, pants from H&M, loafers from Zara, coat from Vila, sunglasses from Gucci and hair ring from Ebay. 

Jeg skriver for harde livet om dagen, ettersom jeg har valgt levere eksamen i tekst. Helst skulle jeg nok ha skrevet 24 timer i dgnet, men vret i Oslo skriker is og da er det ikke s mye annet gjre enn spise is. Litt pauser er viktig uansett!

-

I'm writing my ass off, as I chose to take the copywriter exam. I should write like 24 hours a day, but the weather screams ice cream. So there's so much to do, but eat ice cream. Taking breaks is important anyway!

 

Takket vre dere er jeg p andre plass i Costumes bloggkonkurranse! Husk stemme én gang om dagen, det er bra for magen.

Lifestyle | Working from home

Det var s gy med alle de positive tilbakemeldingene p forrige Lifestyleinnlegg at jeg fikk lyst lage et nytt allerede i dag. Hjemmeeksamen frer nemlig med seg ganske mye fint. Som litervis med kaffe, nylakkerte negler, komfortable klr, oppdatert Tumblr og rufsete hr.

-

I was so happy to see the positive response on the last Lifestyle post that I felt like making a new one already. I'm in the middle om my home exam and it's actually kind of nice. A lot of coffee, fresh polish on my nails, comfy clothes, updated Tumblr and shaggy hair.

Lifestyle | After school

Wearing loafers from Zara, cut off jeans from COS, coat from Vila, sunglasses from Gucci, top from H&M and bag from Armani Jeans.

Jeg tenkte at jeg skulle begynne med noe nytt her p bloggen. Nemlig en slags liten spalte ved navn Lifestyle, hvor dere selvflgelig skal f se hva jeg har p meg, men ogs litt annet. Hva tror dere om det? Frst ut er i alle fall After school. For i dag leverte jeg den frste eksamenen, noe som ble feiret med litt tapas og nye godbiter fra Zara.

-

I'm thinking about starting with something new on my blog. A little thing called Lifestyle, where you'll get to see what I'm wearing of course, but also other stuff.  So what do you think? First out is After school. Because today I finished the first exam, which I celebrated with tapas and some new stuff from Zara.
