My dream panel of bloggers

I was recently inspired by a company called Eventbrite, which is a ticket selling platform for event planners. I wanted to share what my dream panel would be if I were ever to hold a blogger conference.

Who would be on my panel?

It`s hard to choose as there are obviously so many amazing bloggers out there. Obviously I had to narrow it down and I figured that four is a good number. You get in some variation, but it`s not chaos. You know? So these are my choices.

Sophie Elise- http://sophieelise.blogg.no/

This is the biggest blogger in Norway. At just age 22 she is a known household name all over the country and she makes a really good living of her blog and is frequently seen in nation vide commercials as well as on our reality show “the bloggers” (bloggerne). The reason I would love to have her at my panel is that I would love to ask her more about her political views, as she supports a different party than me, yet has many views I agree on. She is also known for having had a lot of plastic surgery and I would really want to ask her about what made her do it and if it`s made her any happier. Also if she has any advice for others who are considering getting something done and what questions she thinks you should ask yourself before going through with it.

Aleali (Uh-lay-lee) May– http://www.alealimay.com/

This image consultant and model is not just incredibly gorgeous and stylish, she is also a young successful entrepreneur and local LA celebrity. Since her blog is purely style based with pictures and descriptions, I have so many topics and questions that need answers from her. Like, what is it like going to Columbia business school?  Was styling Kedrick Lamar or Wiz Khalifa the most fun? What is racial identity like when you`re half african-american and half Filipino? But what I would most like to get out of having her on the panel, is spreading the idea that it`s not only possible to have a style that`s both high-end and street, it`s can also be 100 % amazing. Talk about best of both world.

When I first got asked to do this post, the first person I was sure I was going to include in my panel, was Jasmine. I have read her blog ever since I joined WP, and I am continually impressed by her. At only fourteen she is such a good writer and deep thinker, and her blog is basically what I tried to do when I was her age and failed at. And her style is A+! I would love to have her at my panel because “the young perspective” in so many situations means under 35, but really there is a whole group of people who are not being heard and are seeing the world in a totally different way that we should listen more to. Young teenagers have the curiosity and innocence of children, but also some life experience, knowledge and  vocabulary that makes them able to present their views.

 Krystal- http://thistimetomorrow.com

There are two things in life I`ll never get enough of (okay there are many, but here`s two of them), clothes and travels. Krystals blog is full of inspiration regarding both of these subjects. This is the go to blog for outfit ideas, travelling reviews and boosting about the 90s generation. Obviously all of these topics would be discussed, but even more important. East Coast vs West Coast! When will this ever not be a relevant and heated topic? Well, never, that`s when. Krystal has a lot of experience from both. Tell us all the inside secrets, Krystal! Also, she worked for google for five years! I`m sorry for rambling guys, but I can`t help that she`s both stylish and impossibly interesting. After watching “the interns”, we all want to no if working at google really is like that. Anyone who denies is is definitely lying.

What would I ask them?

I`ve already talked about some things that I want to know about them individually, but obviously the whole point of a panel is to get different views on the same topic. And to get to know interesting people and public figures of course. So here are some of the main questions I`d ask them.

  • If you could only wear one designer for the rest of your life, who and why?
  • Do you believe that you can change the world through blogging? How?
  • What do you love most about your city?
  • Do you believe in pink?
  • What makes you unique as a blogger?
  • Where should our main focus be in the womens rights issue?
  • Subscribe and comment? haha

Where would it take place?

Probably at some really cool mall in London where all the under aged fashionistas would come in rain soaked and fan girl.

 

So there you go. That is my fantasy blog panel. Check out Eventbrite and the services they offer – it’s pretty cool!

You can go here to see what events they have going on in your area and here to set up your own! 🙂

And if you want to see my dream panel come to life or see me at someone else`s, then you can click  here, here or here to make me famous. Hahaha.

Norwegian Christmas Traditions

I am currently resting while eating some marzipan after successfully (I hope) making my first nutroast. Which was time-consuming, yet easy. Another first today will be first fake christmas tree, as my mother is super allergic. I`ll let you know how that turns out later.

not

(My gorgeous nutter from another mother. I know, it looks like a breadloaf. That`s the vegan butterdough around it.)

But to this post. Norwegian Christmas Traditions.

Tomorrow is the 24, which is when all the Christmas activities will take place here in Norway, and although a lot of the traditions are the same as in America and the rest of the world, it does have a few differences, so i thought I`d take you through the day.

First, we of course wake up to check our stockings. For me personally, usually containing sweets, a soda and a movie.

We then watch the movies “Three Nuts to Cinderella” (a czech classic that they air on our national channel every year. Super fun twist on the classic fairytale involving magical nuts containing important outfits” and “The Journey to the Christmas Star” (basically: princess get`s lost looking for star, loses memory and joins travelling theater, travels to castle, finds star for king, is revealed as princess when lost queen returns, norwegian classic). After this we usually watch as many other christmas movies as we have time for. Most importantly Mickey and Jiminy Crickets respective films.

czech

(Bow down to our new rulers. I`ll follow Cinderella into battle any day tbh).

Family comes to celebrate and we have some special christmas roast (or ribs idk) (none for me obvs) and pork patties (again, none for me). Then a desert called “riskrem”. Basically cold porridge whipped with cream and served with red sauce (strawberry sauce). In this dessert there is an almond. However finds (almost eats) the almond gets a present. If you find the almond you typically hide it in your mouth until people can`t physically eat more and have to give up their search. Pokerface is key.

Then we, unlike in america, open presents. The peak is obviously reached at this point. So we just drink coffee and eat christmas cookies. Very excited to have vegan ones this year!

So those are our traditions. What are yours?

I got a makeup Christmas calendar!

So as you might know, I am a 17 year old high school student, so I still live at home. Which means that every year I get a Christmas calendar to count down the holidays with a small gift a day. Usually I get stuff like lip-glosses and lollipops (which are both things I love), but this year the game stepped way up! So, obviously I December first was a while ago, but I didn’t really care, my mom is always a little late with the calendar, so I think it’s funny. What’s even better is that for every day that goes by I`ll have one more item to look forward to. Which means that today I got eight gifts! And the items? You guessed it. Makeup! Specifically from MakeupMekka which is my number one favorite makeup company for many reasons! Primarily that they have amazing and super pigmented (and smooth/comfortable af) products and don’t test on animals J

Anyways, here is a picture of the amazing stuff I got!

Rundown:

Pro Water Resistant Kohl Pencil- black

Beautyblender/Blending Sponge Pink

Moisturizing Balm Chubby Stick- Natural Knockout (just tried it, so smooth, so shiny, I`m in love!)

Glow Girl Face and Body Liquid Highlighter 

Smooth and Creamy HD Lipstick- Naughty Nordic

Shine Trio Cream Highlighter/Blush/Bronzer (actually already had this, but shh, don`t tell)

All Natural Soothing and Protective Lipbalm

Lipstick Wheel- Fabulous Five

That angelic feel that comes with new makup.

 

Where do you prefer to get your makeup from?

 

 

Three of the day #8

It literally feels like forever since I`ve posted a “three of the day”, and I`m not sure why, since I really love writing them. I guess maybe at some point I felt that it was ridiculous for me to give others advice when my life is 100 % not together. But my new philosophy is that anyone, literally anyone, has something to offer and can be at least a small kind of guru. And even if you find what I`m writing pointless and unhelpful, I at least hope that you can pick up some positive vibes from it. I personally place vibes very highly, whether it comes to people, movies, artwork or places. Even when I write poems or speeches, I always just go with my instincts and try to follow a certain vibe. I definitely feel like humans haven`t lost the instincts that we see in the animal world, we`ve just stopped listening to it, and I think vibes is an undergroup of this. Like bad vibes to protect you from people you should avoid, positive vibes to give you energy to go about life`s boring or difficult tasks and a sense of purpose, and of course a general feel of all kinds of vibes to create beauty in art, fashion, words and everyday life. Sorry for that painfully long intro, but alas here are “three of the day”.

Advice of the day:

You know how where always advised to not put on too warm clothes in fall and beginning of winter, because when the real cold kicks in, we won`t be able to take are warmth game up that necessary notch to keep us from being in cold wind hell? No? Well, at least we get that tip here in Norway. And it is totally smart! Well, I personally feel like this tip is transferable to Christmas. Christmas is just pure fun, right? So therefore it is super easy to just dive right in. Listening to every Christmas song imaginable, gorging yourself in marzipan, Christmas tree shaped chocolate and holiday specials from Disney. The thing is though, that if you go full blown anti-Grinch from December first, then I almost guarantee that the real Christmas will not feel as special as it could have been, and it will actually be pretty anti-climactic (aka one of the worst feelings ever). However, I also believe in building the Christmas spirit. I mean, from the 22nd it is basically Christmas, and I will refuse to watch any movie without at least one Christmas tree or snow globe. And of course December is the Christmas month. But just take it slow. Instead of watching five Christmas movies every Saturday and Sunday, watch like two a week. Of course I`m not going to give you a detailed plan on how to do Christmas (I`m a narcissist, not a self proclaimed dictator), I just hope that you can “take it slow and let the good times roll”. (Sorry, die hard American Pie fan over here).

Motovation of the day!

Pretty much sums it up for my part!

Fashion tip of the day:

Oversized sweaters! In particular oversized knitted sweaters. It`s winter, which means it is about time to break out those comfortable and warm, yet also super stylish (at least for the most part) giant sweaters! I mean, if warm, big, super cute clothes are wrong, than I don’t wanna be right. Just don’t ever pair it with big, flowy pants or a long, wide skirt. I will die and come back to haunt you. It would be horrible to make any fashion mistakes with this type of piece when there are literally so many different ways to wear it, and so few ways to mess up. Variations include (but are definitely not limited to): pairing it with jeans, leggings, skirt with tights, shorts with tights, tall boots, ankle boots, flats, sneakers, big statement jewelry, with belt (incredible must try), no belt. Note: If you are the one to pull it off, shorts with thin tights (pantyhose) and knee highs or legwarmers is basically mandatory due to unexplained awesomeness and incredible aesthetics.

So that concludes the “Three of The Day” for today. Vibe: Winter, Christmas and exploration.

Snow! (and Christmas?)

Okay, so here in oh so cold Norway it’s been snowing pretty much constantly since Thursday. I swear every morning I wake up and think that it must be christmas break!

Here is a picture to validate my feelings.

snow
It’s no longer my garden, it’s the North Pole.

Anyways, I thought I might do a couple of Christmas posts, you know to share this jolly Christmas spirit of mine. What do you think? Is it to early? I know we haven’t even gotten to Thanksgiving yet, and trust me, I’m ALL about Thanksgiving, but I figured I might as well take advatage of this weird mode while it lasts. Well, up to you.

Anyways. Is there snow where you live and where would that be?
