Last sunny day in Chicago

Været i Chicago har så mange personligheter at det er helt umulig å holde følge. Forrige uke var det snø, men på fredag var det varmt og vår igjen, var utrolig herlig, men nå er det regn og kaldt igjen:( Fikk heldigvis kost meg i godværet me...

Workout Wednesday

Tror jeg blir i dårligere form hver gang jeg trener, føles ihvertfall sånn. Tvang meg selv ut av sofakroken og inn på treningssenteret. Ble benkpress, litt vekter, og tredemølle. Følte meg selvfølgelig mye bedre etter jeg hadde trent, og var hø...

Almost time to leave

Ferdig pakket og lever siste uken ut av kofferten, utrolig trist. Snart begynner en ny hverdag i Norge, men har heldigvis fremdeles litt tid igjen før jeg må dra. Blir tøft å si adjø, men hjelper med gode venner hjemme. Tok en pause fra pakking, og dro til Lincoln Square ...

Sunday workout

Er i så utrolig dårlig form, så prøver å presse inn nødtreninger før jeg skal hjem til Norge hvor alle løper i fjellet uansett vær, og pensjonister løper i ring rundt meg. Her i Chicago er det derimot ingen bakker eller fjell, helt ...

Winter Wonderland

Har brukt de siste dagene på å pakke, og kvitte meg med ting jeg ikke trenger. Utrolig mye man samler på ett par år. Heldigvis ferdig med det verste og begynt å pakke kofferten hjem. Har ikke vært hjemme i Norge siden sommeren 2015, så er litt merkelig, o...

St.Patricks

Saturday they celebrated St.Patricks by turning the Chicago river green. St.Patricks is a big party day in the US and in Chicago, so there was a lot of drunk adults and definitely not old enough teenagers downtown celebrating. I had a more sober day, as I had to go to the doctor and get antibioti...

Downtown Chicago

Paige fikk besøk av lillebroren forrige uke, så dro downtown på sightseeing.  Er lett å glemme hvor stor Chicago er, siden jeg ikke bor downtown, men blir fort påminnet når man leker turist.//Paige's little brother is visiting, so we went downtown for a l...

Bokanbefaling

Våknet rund kl to i natt av intens øreverk, hallo ørebetennelse 👍 Prøvde å distrahere meg selv med å lese, mens jeg ventet på at smertestillende skulle ta effekt. Funket veldig bra, ettersom boken plutselig ble mye mer interessant enn forventet...

Campus and coffee

Tusen takk penicillin! Har fått stemmen min tilbake, og nesten helt frisk. Er fremdeles ganske slapp, men det kan også være fordi jeg ikke har trent på godt over en uke nå itillegg til sykdom. Besøkte North Park campus og Paige på Mandag, kaffe og kaninkos er en ganske god Mandag. Chicago været ...

Har flyttet noen blogginnlegg fra den gamle bloggen over hit, men ser naa ut som om alle er skrevet samme dagen, som selvfolgelig ikke er saken hvis noen lurer:) Blir spennende aa se o...

Influensa sesong

Trying to smile cause at least the weather was nice yesterday, even tough I felt like 💩 I've been sick the last couple of days, and trying to trick my body in to feeling better with lots of green juices and fruit, but it didn't help, so had to suck it up and go to the doctor today. The pe...

Coffee break ☕

  I checked out a local coffee place, and tried Raspberry Mocha for the first time, it was amazing and pretty much everything I didn't know I wanted in a coffee ☕ Not so amazing however was their Chipotle chicken salad, it tasted how I imagine chicken in a sauce of cow ma...

Bunny love

Today I was lucky enough to get some more love from the world's cutest bunny. Animals really help my mood and always improve it,  it's hard not to when they're so darn cute😍 L      #chicago #usa #ootd #wiw #sminke #beauty #pets #dagensantrekk #booties #...

Sunny Saturdays

My Saturday started with a morning lifting session in Lincoln Square. After my workout and running some errands, I went to Panera for much needed girltime and carbs. The rest of the day was spent outside on campus enjoying the surprisingly warm February weather .   The ...

Valentines and bunnies❤❤

Yesterday was my last day of work since the OPT work visa I am here in the States on has reached its end date. I was sad that it was my last day at work, but it helped that it was also Valentine?s day, and I was meeting my lovely boyfriend for dinner after work. On the way to dinner, my Lyft d...

Fall in Lincoln Park

Miles Davis & Francine Turk

Not long ago, I went to the art opening of Francine Turk on behalf of Felix Magazine. Francine, the artist had been given access to Miles Davis? private journal and created a whole collection of paintings inspired by them. The paintings were beautiful, and it was like a sneak peek into his privat...

Black on black

Another lunchbreak spent exploring the Lincoln Park neigbourhood yesterday. This random white corner window with the flowerbed in the middle of the brown buildings is a favorite. I don?t why, but the white and flowers remind me of Greece and vacation. Green everywhere! Another fa...

Pink layers

Tuesday?s lunch was spent walking around Lincoln Park. It?s still warm, but the leaves have started falling. Not ready to say goodbye to green and lush Chicago yet. I also wore another one of my old roommate?s shirts, thanks Elise! I?m pretty much incapable of wearing shoes that aren?t...

Chicago Art Institute

Sunday, I went to the Chicago Art Institute, and then to Lincoln Square with Paige. They had a surprising amount of Monets in their collection. Even one he?d painted in Norway. Go Norway! They were all gorgeous. The coolest painting was the one below though, because it looked diff...

Late summer beach days

It feels like this week has flown by. It?s been mostly work and the gym, but it?s finally Friday and just one more day of work after this before I can sleep in, YAY. I work Tuesday-Saturdays, so Sunday and Monday are my days off. Here?s some pics from yesterday. I usually spend part of ...

Friday

Friday was a long day. My outfit started out like this.... For lunch I went to Starbucks so I could use their wifi to call home to Norway.  And while I waited for my aunt to me available for the call, I sat outside and took pictures while I inhaled my food, cause I'm shameless like t...

Gym and errands

Yesterday?s lunchbreak was spent at the gym. It?s perfect that it?s right next to work, and that it?s much less people during that hour so I could get to the weight rack. It was fairly quick, just sets of squats, straight-legged deadlifts and shoulderpress. All done at the same station. Afte...

Downtown Chicago with Paige

On Monday Paige and I took a trip downtown to run errands and enjoy the weather until it started raining?. L #lipgloss #loreal #sminke #beauty #chicago #usa #citylife #rompers #summer #chicagoblogger #mote #style #styleblogger #ootd

Color time!

Hair change day! Smoothie on my way to the hairdresser after a work. A year since last time I got it colored?. Ootd Bye bye haircolor. Before. Ew. After. Happy client   And on my lips: Revlon Colorstain in the color; 005 Parisian. It doesn?t really live it up to ...

Pink love

  Some girls wear their boyfriend?s shirt, I wear my old rommate?s. Thank you Elise for having too much clothes to bring them all back to Norway. And for loving pink. The best thing about this shirt is definitely the back. The windy city always makes it look like I have my own p...
