I’ve decided to do a 30×30 challenge in October. That means for 30 days I’ll wear 30 pieces of clothing including shoes. Bags, scarves and other accessories not included. Here’s what I’ve chosen, I hope me and photographer Kari can have a photo shoot soon where I will show some of the outfits. We have a plan for tomorrow if weather allouds. We’re back to normal now after a lovely September with very little rain.
Blaser – Penn&Ink, scarf – Becksondergaard, tee- Minimum, jeans – Fiveunits
Jeg har gitt meg selv en 30 x 30 utfordring i oktober, dvs at jeg kun skal bruke disse 30 plaggene og skoene i 30 dager. Vesker, skjerf og annet tilbehør er ikke med i de 30 plaggene. Jeg håper på at fotograf Kari og jeg kan få fotografert noen av antrekkene i morgen om været tillater det. Regnet har kommet tilbake etter en nydelig September. Jeg har tenkt godt igjennom hva jeg skal bruke på min 30 x 30 utfordring. Her er det jeg har plukket ut.
You might think it’s a lot of jackets and cardis, yes it is, but in October I need to wear a layer also indoors. And I’m going to try live without my navy blazer this month, I think it needs a rest. Wish me luck.
Kanskje du synes det er mange jakker og cardigans, jeg kunne helt sikkert klart meg med færre, men som dere vet så bruker vi jo ofte to lag inne også i den mørke årstiden. Jeg gjør i alle fall det, skikkelig frysepinn.
Blazer – Claire, scarf – bought at Fellini, tee- Minimum
I see I have quite a few new clothes this autumn, this is due to both that I’ve lost weight since last year and also that I’m phasing out black from my wardrobe. No new pants, but that’s because I “inherited” both the Fiveunits jeans from one of my very best friends.
Jeg har kjøpt en god del nye klær nå i høst, det er delvis fordi jeg har gått ned i vekt siden i fjor høst og delvis fordi jeg holder på å fase svart ut av garderoben min. Så mye tror jeg ikke jeg pleier å kjøpe til en sesong, eller….. Nå er jo de nøytrale høstklærne egentlig helårsklær for oss i vårt klima. Ingen nye bukser forresten, men det er fordi jeg har arvet noen par av en av mine beste venninner.
Any one want to join this challenge??
Until next time

I recently discovered the ponytail trick myself, and I think this is a really good way to get more wear out of a tee. The tee will look more interesting too and it will create a more defined waist. I’ve tried it now with 2 of my tees, one loose and one more fitted, both looks good after doing the ponytail trick.
For ikke lenge siden oppdaget jeg dette trikset, en fin måte å få en helt vanlig T-skjorte til å se litt mer interessant ut. Jeg har prøvd dette med to av T-skjortene mine, en som er litt vid og en som er mer ettersittende og begge ble fine da jeg brukte hestehaletrikset.
So do you have a tee which would look better more fitted for some outfits?? Here’s the way to do it. Take a rubber band or a hair tie and make a pony tail inside out.A normal white tee Turn it inside out, make a ponytail Put on a rubber band or a hair tie Finished
I think this is a good way to wear a tee. You can also find similar tees in the shops now, twisted front sweaters and tees are very much in fashion. Now you can create the look for free. Try out where to put the ponytail for best result.
Jeg synes dette er en genial måte å bruke en T skjorte på, du får en definert midje og et mer feminint utrykk på selv den mest maskuline T-skjorte. Det er veldig in nå med topper som har vridde detaljer, nå kan du lage din egen vri helt gratis. Prøv deg litt fram hvor du plasserer hestehalen.
Until next time

Recently I spent almost a week in London. I love London and have been there many times, my eldest son lives there so it’s natural for me to visit London quite often. This time we travelled with some of our best friends. Boys had ordered tickets to Wembley to see a football match (soccer as you Americans call it) and us girls had a bra fitting appointment at John Lewis and Afternoon tea booking in a very posh restaurant.
So lets talk bras, for me to discover that I need a new bra is really a night mare. Even if I go to the special stores in Bergen or in Oslo I often have to leave with no bra, or if I should be lucky to find one that fits it’s never one I think is pretty or the color I would like, I just have to settle with something half good. I’ve always wanted a T-shirt bra for instance, but I always end up with the ones with seams that shows under a T-shirt. I’ve been told they don’t make T-shirt bras in big cups so I had kind of given up on that. Until now, it took the lovely fitter in John Lewis lingerie department about ten minutes to find me not only a bra that fitted, but also the T-shirt bra which I dreamed about. It seems like the producer Fantasie has finally managed to make a T-shirt bra for us busty girls, halleluja. I went out from John Lewis with 3 of the same bra in different colors, so now I hope I don’t have to go bra shopping anytime soon. I can highly recommend the Lingerie department at John Lewis, I visit every time I go to London. You can book an appointment online, it’s a popular service so be sure to book a couple of weeks before you go to London. They don’t charge you anything for the fitting and the bras are 3-400 NOK cheaper than the same bra in Norway.
This is the one I bought, Fantasie Rebecca
Afternoon tea at Hotel Cafe Royal in Regent street was a luxury me and my friend had dreamed about for some years. The room was golden and very posh. We had a waiter we didn’t understand as his eastern european accent was quite strong and he talked real fast, so we just nodded and pretended to understand. So what is afternoon tea? Someone might think it’s just a cup of tea, but oh no it’s som much more than that. First it’s a selection of deliocious sandwiches, and when sandwiches are eaten it is served a selection of pasteries and also scones, clutted cream and jam. It’s actually a lot of food.
Shopping, well I had a couple of things on my list, bras ofcourse and a scarf in my colors. I searched long and hard for the scarf, but eventually I found not only one but two scarf in the market hall in Covent garden. 2 light weight soft scarves for £5 ($7, NOK 50) I also bought 2 square silk scarves for £10. I’m sure I will show these scarves in several blogposts later. I also bought a coat at Zara in a Mahogany color. I just love Covent Garden, I always have to visit when in London. It’s something about the atmosphere in Covent garden I just love. This time we found the loveliest floorist shop just as we entered Covent garden, I could have spent hour there. Don’t remember the name unfortunately. I also got my first tatoo in Covent garden, fortunately it’s gone now.
When in London you have to visit pubs, our local was the Sherlock Holmes close to Trafalgar square.
We had crispy duck in Chinatown, Southern fried chicken in Covent Garden and Indian in Soho and when my darling and our friends went home Monday I stayed a couple of days with my son and daughter in law, and of course with my little cutiepie Mia who’s now one month old. I cuddled her for three days before I had to go home. My daughter in laws parents were also visiting from China, it was like living in a Chinese restaurant where several delicious dishes was served three times a day. My daughter in laws lovely mum sure is a good cook.
Until next time
