It feels like yesterday

dancing in the wind

traveling to Oslo
spending time alone
is sacred and emotional
at a time

time to listen to my own thoughts
feels good
leaving my loved ones
is just sad

do you ever feel that way?


first stop Grand Central Hotel
my second time staying at Grand Central

I simpley love this hotel
first time booked via Elle Decoration
this time, chosen by myself
so happy Grand Central wants to cooperate
I stay and tell
about the hotel

the hotel is a mix of old and modern
rooms with high ceiling and eclectic art by artist Ariel McMillion
with a view to the opera
good & fresh breakfast
magazines to read
just overall a good vibe


se you soon sweet Oslo

my tray got a makeover
golden shiny

s m i l e

you need a tray
spray gold paint
gold paint + brush

1// cleen the tray
2// spray paint. I used a darker shade of gold.
3// let it dry
4// paint with a lighter shade of gold with a dry brush. That way the structure shows.

new tray and I´m happy
