My little Micra!

I got my drivers license in 2015 at the age of 24. Prior to that, driving cars didn’t interest me. My uncle and my aunt gave me the driving package for my 18th birthday. I actually completed everything required except for passing the driving test itself. Shifting gears are my weakness, and embarassing as it is I failed a few times.

I never felt the burden of not owning a car or having a license until I started working with my current job. As I lived outside Oslo, I had to find ways to go to and from work on my own whenever I got shifts where there were no means of public transportation.

One day, I got the motivation to just get my drivers lisence. I just needed to re-take the written exam and take the driving exam again. So bought packages from prøve.no to practice with the questions and took the written exam. I passed, and I called my driving teacher who told me to book a practical exam before August 12. Why before that? The roads wouldn’t be as busy since the school year haven’t started yet.

I booked the earliest practical exam which was like a week after. The driving teacher wanted me to take automatic and not manual. Probably because he knows I still suck at driving manually. I practiced for a week non-stop. I did pass my practical exam 😁😁😁

Anyways, fast forward to March 2016. A day before my 25th birthday. I bought my first ever car, a Nissan Micra. It was from 2008, but it had a lot of life left.

Having a car made work life much more easier, I didn’t have any more restrictions on my shifts.

Funny thing btw, my car has received some damages, none of which were caused by me. A neighbor crashed into my car while it was parked. An aunt crashed my car somewhere when she borrowed it. The damages where light, not big bulks or anything.

I have gone to countless trips to Sweden, went on a road trip to Denmark with my car and visited family.

However, tomorrow I will be saying goodbye to it. When I started living in the city, I didn’t have any more use for my car. Also it’s quite expensive to own one. I went to have it’s annual service done last year, I had to pay 17000 NOK! That’s a lot of money.

So today, I cleaned my car and took it to a car wash. Poor things been covered in leaves and pollen.

New In: Alma Bb

So I went to Louis Vuitton today! I woke up to a text that my bag came in 😊

Funny thing, when I was inside the store I realized that I forgot my card with me 🤦🏻‍♀️ so embarassing, so I went back home and then back to the store with my card with me. Luckily, they understood but still embarassing.

I came back from the store not too long ago and without further ado, here is my wonderful Alma BB in Indigo.

I’ve been eyeing the Alma BB for quite some time now. The color I wanted, black and pink, is sold out. Indigo was the second color I wanted. The rose ballerine has crossed my mind, but I feel like it is too delicate and can get dirty fast.

I opted for the Alma in epi because I feel like it is a bit more discreet than it’s mono and damier counterparts.

I love that there is a hook on the handles specifically for the straps! I feel like this bag is going to be my go to bag in the future 🙈

Have a nice day ahead 💕

One down, three to go

I just finished my first exam for the semester and it did not go well. I will surely pass, but not get the best grade. I have myself only to blame though 😔

My brain went on a vacation as soon as our classes ended! Also I have been sleeping a lot. It is so hot here in Norway, and combine it with pollen allergy, so there you have sleepiness!

Yesterday, I went out. The weather was incredibly nice and I think I wasn’t home until 6PM 😅

Took these beauties out 💕

Ideal of Sweden

I finally received the new phone cover I ordered from Ideal of Sweden.

I had previously owned a plastic cover with marbled print, but the print started to chip away.

I’ve been seeing ads for Ideal of Sweden on Facebook and instagram. It took a while before I decided to order it. It wasn’t until I saw the Hannalicious Collection that I decided to pull the trigger. I finally found the cover I wanted 😊

So here is my new phone case. The Hannalicious Collection in Magical Mint

Study day!

I had some free time today after going to work to pick up some notes I forgot yesterday.

I decided to use my new to me Chanel flats today 😊

The flats are very nice to look a, but after wearing them for 3 hours, I got a blister. It sucks!

I stayed at Slottsparken for a while eating soft serve and reading a page of my Japanese book 😅

My brain went on vacation after our last Japanese class. Oh well!

Poland: Warsaw Royal Castle

I planned on going to the Royal Castle in Warsaw on a Sunday because I knew the entrance tickets were free 🙂 I think I got there around 1PM. The queue to go inside the castle was long! I think I stood in line for more than half an hour. It was hot and my back started to ache. The queue to get the tickets were not as long. It went quite fast actually.

I kind of rushed my visit to the castle. That was because I was running out of time and still had two more places I planned to visit.

Here are some photos from the Castle

Poland: Neon Museum

On my second day in Warsaw, I went to the Neon Museum. It was closer to the hostel, than my other itinerary. It took me about half an hour to walk there, and I was walking with eveything I had with me.

The museum is really small and I think the ticket cost 10 PLN, I forgot.

The Neon Museum or Neon Muzeum contains neon signs from the Cold War Era. The neon lights are highly dangerous so touching them is prohibited. We weren’t allowed to take photos with a professional camera, only with our phones.

It is amazing seeing preserved neon lights from a different era. I have noticed that there are some Norwegian words that are similar to Polish which is nice.

I found a sign with a name on! Kat 😛

Nah, just kidding it is actually Kato.

Louis Vuitton Haul from Poland

When I was in Warsaw, I went to one of my favorite stores, Louis Vuitton. I have since early 2017 grown an addiction to buying LV’s!

Louis Vuitton Warsaw can be found at a department store called Vitkac. I went to the store at 11AM, basically when they just opened. I feel like it is best to go there when they just have opened, because there might be fewer shoppers. The store is two stories high. At the ground floor was the luggage, some womens bags, slgs, belts, scarves and jewelries. The second floor had menswear and shoes and some more bags.

Here are some of the things I got from Louis Vuitton Poland 🙂

I got myself a Toiletry 19 🙂 I have been eyeing it from time to time, but it was never in my priority list. I knew I wanted a toiletry case from Poland. However they didn’t have the one I wanted. I asked for the toiletry, but all they had were big ones. Luckily, the SA who helped suddenly said ” Oh, wait we have one right here, the last one”. or something like that. It’s really nice and I think it is the best size.

The second items I got from Poland was the wonderful Polish Stamp of Chopin.

Before going to Poland I had a few tags with me. Luckily I have some friends who sent me tags for my future travels, so I was able to bring their tags with me on my spontaneous trip.

So when I was in LV, I asked the SAs if they had any special stamps, apparently they did not they said they only had letters. While getting some help from the SA who helped me with the toiletry, I asked her about the stamp and she was like “Yes! We have it!”. So she arraged for the tags I had to be stamped. Turns out she was the manager  🙂 I left my tags at the store, since they were very busy. I went to the park and then when I came back after and hour or so, the tags were stamped.

Here is my tag.

Here are all the stamped tags I have 🙂

The stamp really looks like the statue of Chopin!

It is one of the coolest looking stamp I have in my collection and I am ever grateful to Magdalena of Louis Vuitton Warsaw 🙂 I actually went back after I left the store just to thank her <3
