FINITO!


It's nothing special, it's just me being goddamn happy for ending THREE of the assignments on school AND making lots of stuff for my photographies! One assignment I've worked on a looong time, is a drawing I drew on the tablet. Heck of a job (I'm not that much of a professional) and now I'm FINALLY finished! It feels sooo good!

Other things I've gotten is some white paper (bigbigbig, from a roll of paper on school - shhh, don't tell anyone!) that fits perfectly to some bakcground (I'm a bit tired and has been all day so I'm a bit slow on the words, so I've forgotten about half my vocabullary today. So I -yet again- can't remember what it's called. Not even in norweian, haha). I'm also testing out a lot of different lighting and have some cool ideas for a shoot that I hope soon will be. I just have to get the background ready, which will be a drawed-on "testing image" from TV. I don't know why, but it's something about those colours that makes my thoughts spin (eheh, it MIGHT be because of the music video I talked about last time -the korean one). So now I've been sketching a lot in my ALL NEW sketching-book and hopefully I'll get some time on school to make it, cause it's too big to work on at home.

So Indie Yeah!


I've been thinking a lot about the style Indie lately. A friend of mine says he's going Indie, and I'm really curious on what Indie really involves. Cause I can't get it into my head what it is! When people say Indie, I immediately think India and Buddhism. But it couldn't be more far from the truth, haha. I know that Indie stands for "Independent", but it just doesn't make sense anyway.

Cause, when you see a gangster, rocker, emo, punker etc. you immediately know what his or hers style is by a first glance, but when do you know you've seen a Indie? Since the style is meant to be independent, it's not really a style. But since everybody is dressing that way it's a style, but then it's not something independent anymore... Tricky stuff, really.

Now please don't get me wrong. I love Indie-styling. I want to be one myself... sort of... other than I don't want to be in any style though. Haha, I still don't fully get it. I like those that know how to think for themself when it comes to clothing. Those who don't follow the stream and can't go into any group of style. But that's Indie now as I've seem to understand. And then the group of non-grouped party suddenly got a name on their style after all. It really doesn't make sence to me. I get what a Indie is, but I don't get why there should be any labeling on them since there's nothing to label...

Speaking of indie: Check out this Korean Indie band! They're awesome, and I can listen to this song on repeat all day long. Too bad I can't find them anywhere, so I don't need to youtube them every time.

...And yeah also...

..I'm not going to bed yet obviously... I've seen a lot to this sweedish site, Bloglovin', and I'm just wondering what it is... So I am not sure what I am doing now, since I don't really get this thing, like everything else, but they told me to enter this html-code here and something exciting will happen. I guess...We'll see...?

Watch my blog with bloglovin

By the Way...


...uuuh, yeah, I'm really not that intelligent (I probably spelled that word wrong too). Sooooo uuuuh, I sorta found out today that it is I that have to do some magic so people actually can write back some comments on my blog. I thought it was just blogger.com who was stupid, but it was actually me. Soooo for you guys (I'm guessing nobody and that I am sitting here all by myself writing to myself, haha) who wanted to write me a comment but couldn't because you weren't a member of whatever or whatever, now you (hopefully) can! By clicking the "anonymous"-button at the (hopefully) bottom of the comment-page you can actually comment! I think. Sooo go ahead and try it! I want to know if I've done it right or not! It will probably just be my best friend commenting or something, but that's okay, I love you anyway (I HAVE NOT SEEN BOXXY - WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT, YOU BASTARD!). Soooo, good night okay? And if you want to, you can write your name at the end of the comment so I know if it is my best friend or if it actually is someone else reading this. Haha, I'm kinda pathetic sometimes. I'm going to bed now. I think it's for the best.

Yeah, and uhm, the picture I'm posting is supposed to be a scary TV with the freakiest childrens show on norwegian television EVER (it's called Pompel and Pilt. Yeah, even the name of the show creeps you out). I made the TV by the way. It's a school assignment. Good night and sleep thight!

Todays Outfit

This is what happens when I've got a holiday from school. I get bored and start sewing stuff and take pictures of what I'm wearing (not that I don't do it anyway, but whatever).
So today I'm wearing a top and my all home made collar and tiebow (which as said before I am very proud of by the way) and a recently sale-bought sequened skirt which I like very much and must use more often AND my vintage London-shoes.
Other than that I haven't been doing all that much. I wen't around looking for jobs. And I got an offer on maybe working in Stenkjer outside of Trondheim for three years as an photographer. But for me who thinks that Trondheim (which is a BIT larger city than Steinkjer) is a small city to live in, then that offer doesn't seem all that shiny. Unfortunately. But I'm gonna think of it though... God, it is so unsatisfying when going from plans to London to living in a little city which I don't know is that much of a city at all. It's not that I don't like the place. It's just so small compared to my dreams of living in London...

Anyways. Looking for the summer! High heels and nice weather! AND a trip to spain! I can't wait!

Collar Satisfaction


I'm so proud I could jump high right now! But I won't since the whole house would shake and my entire neighbourhood would wake up by the heavy-weight-girl-jump. I'm just kidding... It's my night-humor kicking in I guess... But yes, I am anyway very proud at the moment, because, my friend, I've actually managed to make myself an own collar! I just got so much inspiration from the romantic, sweedish blog Metrobloggen, that I had to make something romantic and cute! But not only am I proud of making that one collar on my own, I've also made some really cute (I don't like to brag that much, but hell, I never do anything like this normally) tiebow earrings and a big tiebow to wear everywhere (though that didn't really hit it off. I have an idea of trying once more on making that right). Sooooo, uhm, yeah... I'm proud and happy and a bit tired since it's way past bedtime, so good night everybody! I promise I'll write again very soon!

Porti-Porti-Folio


IT'S PORTIFOLIOTIME! (I figured it'd been best with some large printing there)
I must admit that my confidense in the picture part is quite lacking. Even though it is what I'm supposed to work with when I grow up, it's still so hard to make it good enough to enter the good schools. I wanted to go to a London school, but I've dropped that dream for now and will try again on moving there when the moneysucking school-time is over. But my really big problem right now is how to make the best portifolio and the best pictures. And let me tell ya, it's hard for me who haven't got anyone to teach me or guide me! Everything is based on ME and I'm shaky enough as it is when it comes to selfconfidense.

One of the schools I'm trying at ("Fotofagskolen" in Trondheim) wants to have a series of pictures and I'm dying of fright on doing it all wrong and bad and horrible and end up being a massmurderer for delivering heart attack on those poor judges that sees them (yes I AM that dramatic people). So I'm sitting here, thinking of how a series of photos are meant to be. I have some magazines that shows the idea, but it's so hard to make my own serie!

Weeeell, so just to comfort my haunted soul, here's some shoes I like very very much. I think I'll never get past my shoe-addiction! (And why won't anyone hire me so I can work up some money? And where's my dear uncle? You know, the one that's as rich as scrooge and gives me tons and tons of money in his will because I'm the only one left in his family? Why can't I have one of those?)

Dolce Vuitton?


I am having a task on school in about two weeks, where I'm supposed to make a costume. But since I'm in such an artistic class, I was thinking of something not quite costume-ish, but still a bit too far fetched to wear in my daily life. And in my mind I had the thought of making a Dolce and Gabbana-dress I've seen that I really liked. So I started searching for it on Style.com . I looked and I searched, but there was NO Dolce-dress to find! I really wrenched my brain out (probably a TOTALLY wrong sentence) to figure out what I did wrong, because I knew I'd seen it not that many seasons ago! And then I looked at some pics of the dress which I'd saved from an earlier round of searching, and suddenly it dawned on me... I weren't looking at the Dolce and Gabbana-collections... I were looking at Louis Vuitoon! No wonder I didn't find anything!

So that's my little story for today... I'm tired and do really look forward to go to bed and do really NOT look forward to get up again from my big, unnaturally comfortable bed in six hours. Good night everybody!



(Btw: It's the Dolce and Gabbana Spring 2008-collection)

Soon-to-be Photoshoot

Tomorrow I'll FINALLY have my longed-for photoshoot with a stylist AND a new lense! The stylist couldn't make it though, but I've got some of her ideas via email, so I know about what it is she was thinking of. I got the idea so clear in my head! Can't wait! So I'm warming up by looking for strange clothes in my closet. And you are lucky enough to have a look at what I found. Hehe
