Livetolinda, over and out. Thank you and bye! x

Hi all,

Blog wise October got quiet. November was a silent month.
December is the month that ends the year, and December 2012 ends this blog, too.

Lately I've been super b-u-s-y.
Busy in manymany great ways.

I've travelled Europe, been to tons of (music) gigs (have to be precise - my dad asked if I'd become a singer or a thief as I go to gigs so much these days), met lovely people, received amazing opportunities and used some of my spare time on dreaming of a complete bachelors thesis as well as planning my upcoming year which will hopefully include adventures I've dreamt of for years. After I finish my thesis that is. Gotta finish my thesis. Thesis. Thesis. Thesis.

Anyway, gratitude is and has been at the tops!

Thank you all, every single one of you, for following Livetolinda for the couple of years it was up and running. Blogging has been a lot of fun and I hope you've had a great time following my journey.

I wish a lot of love, happiness and health to all my readers and pop-by'ers.
Remember to smile and you will shine!

thank you, kiitos, takk, tack, merci, gracias, gracie, danke.


ps. i keep updating Instagram once in a while. quite a lot actually. you can find me as livetolinda.

And here comes the tourist part of our work trip to Thessaloniki.
We had most of Sunday off for some proper hard core tour-ist shait; tourbusses n stuff, yeea! 

 my fav store in Thessaloniki. obvs.

do you want to go to the seaside...

tourbus peeps.

 met up with our summer exchange student, Marily, who stayed with my family in Finland last summer!

a lot of love for greek salads and cheese.


It was summer in Greece. Now back in Oslo and it looks like this:

I'm not too worried though. It's quite nice to drown into wool and I can finally find a proper excuse to wear my Onepiece again in our cold basement apartment.
though summer, i'm looking forward to your warmth!

salads and wine. red wine. i'm growing up. aging.

smoothies are back!

We finally got ourselves a blender. Though it is pretty bad and therefore takes 15min to get all the ingredients mashed.. Oh well, despite the quality - I'm just happy that we actually now have that machine.

Currently enjoying a pineapple-mango smoothie with a twist of chili and ginger. +various supers of course!

Yesterday's lunch was rather tasty, too.
I've become a huuuge fan of cheeses. Especially goat cheese, which is nr1 atm.

Bestestestest Ellu came to pick me up from the airport last Thursday when I went to Finland.
After staying in Helsinki for the night and a bit of Friday, I headed off to Turku to my friend's wedding.

We had a nice Friday morning wake-up at 6am when Elli -dog decided to sleep between us in bed.
She let us sleep until 9am after which her rolling around in bed woke us up for good..

No high fives...

We went to the center to some extremely terrible outlet sale, met Essu for lunch and headed off to organic food shop 'Ruohonjuuri' for raw cake (YU-HUM!) and to stock up on 'cheap' superfoods.
Compared to the prices in Norway - Ruohonjuuri is rather affordable.

And enjoying the sunny weather before leaving to Turku!

...and got to Turku! Wedding time!
