Hello Cornwall

It’s our third day here in Cornwall and it has been absolutely beautiful. The weather is amazing and so is the view from the house we are staying in with some friends.

After a boat trip to Falmouth we will be back in St Mawes tonight to celebrate New Year’s. We haven’t planned too much. We will just cook dinner, have drinks, and play some games. Sometimes it’s those chilled out New Year’s Eves that are the best.

What have you guys got planned for tonight?

The most southern point of Norway

Last weekend I had an amazing time on a cabin trip to the most southern point of Norway, Lindesnes , where you get the most beautiful view. At this spot Norway’s first lighthouse was lit in 1665. The lighthouse that you see in the pictures was built in 1915 and you can walk all the way up there to have a view of the whole area.

The name Lindesnes is Old Norwegian and means “Where the land sinks into the sea” and on stormy autumn days it actually looks like that because of the high waves.

Why autumn is the perfect beach season

My favourite season has always been summer but then there is something about autumn that makes everything look more beautiful. I like the orange leaves and the golden light when the sun sets in the evening. Now is the best time to take long walks and inhale the fresh air before it gets really freezing and dark. The best place to be is the beach around this time, especially in good weather conditions.

Beach walk

But why is this season such a good time for long beach walks?

1. Healing powers of sea air:
If you look back in time, you can see that doctors have been prescribing patients trips to health resorts by the sea for centuries.    So there must be something curing in the air around the sea. It might be the sea salt or simply the fact that being on a beautiful beach makes you happy and therefore feel better in general.

2. Boost your immune system:
Especially during this season the strong wind, salty air and the sun still being around for several hours per day, is a challenge for the body. Your immune system is growing stronger in these conditions – and in almost non-polluted sorrundings.

3. Sun equals Vitamin D
Being in the sun a lot makes your body produce vitamn D, which is said to keep you in a good mood and make your bones stay strong and healthy. Usually we lack Vitamin D in winter and that can make you feel depressed and tired. So we better soak up the sun for as long as we can before the dark season comes around.

Basics

You don’t need to buy many clothes….if you get the right basics. It’s easy to make an outfit look good for any occasion if you mix and match with the right shoes, jewellery and accessories. This season I love grey, white and black with silver, gold or pearl jewellery.

In these photos I’m wearing a blazer from H&M, a top from Selected Femme, skinny jeans from Bik Bok and high heels from Buffalo London.

My necklace is from Topshop and my bracelets are from Primark.

Happy weekend

It doesn’t happen very often but today I was up so early that I could watch the sunrise. Had breakfast outside and watched the beautiful colours on the sky.

My today’s breakfast consisted of vanilla yoghurt, musli, banana slices and frozen berries.

Now it’s raining unfortunately. I guess I will curl up on the sofa and watch my favourite programmes.

What are you up to today? Have a lovely weekend everyone! x

Golden hour

The sun has started to set earlier now here in Norway. And in a few weeks, after a summer of long days and bright nights, it will get dark earlier than in most other parts of the world.

I watched the sun set on a small island nearby last night, soaking up the sun before the dark season comes.

Stormy weather

Yesterday I took a walk along the sea by the lighthouse in Randaberg. It was really windy and for the first time this year I had to wear a scarf again.

Of course I’m a little sad that summer is over. But at the same time I think it’s nice being by the sea in this kind of weather when the wind is sweeping through your hair and the air smells of salt water.

Sea and music

Yesterday I spent all day at Lydbølger, a festival at Bore Beach. It is the second time it takes place here in Norway and includes surfing, kite surfing, yoga and many different bands. Nice idea and also a nice wordplay, it means “sound waves”. We were really lucky to have such sunny weather.

Now I’m off to more beach and sun cause I’m flying to Spain :)

Sunset lovers

Hanging out on balconies with beautiful views seems to become a tradition. After having dinner in town we had drinks on our friends’ balcony, watched the sunset and the thunderstorm that approached later. I still haven’t got used to living right by the sea but of course I absolutely love it.
