First of May

Ah! 1st of May. My favourite month. The start of the new season. Spring. It’s the time when flowers bloom, grass turns greener and days gets brighter. But today, it actually snowed a little bit here in Oslo. But it didn’t last long. It was mostly like wet snow. And rain. But I guess it’s […]

Time for Comfort

Autumn. It’s getting chilly outside. Cold crisp wind starts to blow and the beautiful colours of falling leaves rustling on the ground.

Chiffon Cupcakes, Strawberries and Dancing on Clouds

When I was a child, I used to imagine and wonder how it is dancing on clouds. Hopping from one fluffy white pouf of cloud to another. I used to dream that I am an angel with white satiny soft wings with feathers so big that it tickles my cheeks while I prance and dance […]

Last Days of Summer (Part 1)

A few more days and we’re almost in the middle of the month of August. Oslo weather is very unpredictable now. One day it rains and the next is sunny. Just yesterday I was on my way to work, I looked outside the window and saw that it was raining. I’ve put on my rain […]
