A new year has started and at this time of year I always feel like anything is possible, that any of my dreams may come true! That’s why I like to take the first couple of weeks of January to contemplate my goals and dreams for the new year, to ensure that my life is heading in the right direction. Some great things happen by chance, but most life-changing and amazing things happen because you’ve planned for them and worked towards them over a longer period of time.
While my mind is currently on my goals of 2016, the last couple of weeks were a totally different story. I flew home to Bergen on December 22nd and had fun days of hanging out with my boyfriend, meeting up with friends for coffees, lunches and dinners to catch up and exchange gifts, and spent Christmas eve and the following days with my family in Stanghelle. We also attended the annual Romjulsfest aka after Christmas party, in my home town, which was great fun. New year’s eve was celebrated in quiet surroundings in Bergen, and on January 3rd I caught the train back to Oslo.
Yesterday was my birthday — hurrah! — and I spent it chilling at home, exhausted from all the activities over the holidays and feeling good about being in my own flat. As much as I love to travel and be social, it always feels wonderful to come back home to my own place where I can truly relax. And do some much needed laundry.
But enough with the chilling and relaxation — today I’m back in action, planning great things for my life and my blog in the new year. I hope you follow along and that I’ll hopefully inspire you to make some of your own goals and dreams come true in the new year, be they linked to fashion, DIY or otherwise!
And while you’re at it, feel inspired to wear some bling! Today’s outfit I wore to the after Christmas party in Stanghelle: I teamed my brightly turquoise sequin skirt with a jade silk top and navy tights, accentuated by gold jewellery. I felt ever so classy, wearing these luxurious fabrics together!
PS // See how I styled a striped navy sequin skirt with a moto jacket and how I wore a jade green top with a black velvet pencil skirt pre Christmas. I can never have too much silk and sequins in my life!
