Late Birthday gift

Last Saturday,  I invited my siblings, my workout buddies and my friends to celebrate my birthday with me.

AS part of being grown up, we have busy schedules, so not everyone was able to go.

We celebrated my birthday at Fangene på Fortet, such a cool place guys. We were there for about 1 hour and 30 minutes. We then went home to my place and ate pizza and the highlight of the day, ube cake!

Ube is not really normally something they eat here in Norway. It is quite unusual if I may say, but they loved it! I mean who wouldn’t 😛

When everyone left, I met up with my best friend and she gave me her birthday gift for me! We did spend time in the city roaming around and stuff. She wasn’t able to come because she had work that finished around 4 PM 🙁

She gave me Rituals gift box. The packaging is so pretty and I am quite a sucker for sakura products! I really can’t wait to use them 😀

Birthday gift: Louis Vuitton

Half a year ago I decided to buy myself a Louis Vuitton bag for my 28th birthday, I have been saving a bit for it.

A few days before my birthday however I decided against buying a bag, and to buy shoes instead! I have been looking at the Run Away sneakers for days and have fallen in love with it.

 

On my birthday, the first errand I did for the day was go to Louis Vuitton. I was so disappointed when I didn’t see the shoes in the color I wanted in display. Luckily, they had it at the back 😊 so I bought them, tried them on first of course. Louis Vuitton shoes run big. I am a 39 and had to buy a 38! That’s a whole size down. 38,5 was too big, my heel kept popping out!

 

So here are my new sneakers!

 

The insoles of shoe makes it a high heel-ish type of sneakers. The insoles can be removed for those who prefer it. The shoes are a bit heavy to hold, but it’s not noticable while walking. I used them yesterday with stockings and felt like my heel would slip out at times, otherwise they were very comfortable to walk with.

 

I used them today as well with socks, and they were a much better fit! Here with my Gymshark tights 🙈Oh

 

Do you have these sneakers as well? What do you think?

Birthday gift : Gymshark

From my previous post I mentioned that I bought myself my own birthday gifts. I bought myself two pairs of workout tights from Gymshark. I have been on the look out for new workout tights, haven’t bought any new one’s since last last year.

 

I keep on seeing Gymshark on my feed, and they look and feels good to wear. So at one point during my search for new tights I just said ”f*ck it, I will try Gymshark”!

 

Finding which tights to choose was quite hard because they have a lot of different types and a lot of different colors and styles to choose from. I have been set on buying tights with a high waist. This is because high waist tights keeps my stomach warm, it hides my tummy, and it doesn’t flash people when I do squats (yes, I squat)

 

After spending days on Gymsharks website. I finally found two tights for me! I chose the Vital Seamless Leggings in Purple and the Dreamy Leggings 2.0 in Dusty Pink.

I was so excited when I opened the mail and I tried it on ASAP!

Did they look good on me as it does my IG friends or the models? Nope. Not at all! They are however very comfortable and the Dreamy Leggings 2.0 is so practical with the two deep pockets on both tighs.

 

Here is the Vital leggings on me

 

I worked out with it today, and I loved the feeling of it. It is one of the most comfortable tights I own so far!

 

Here is the Dreamy 2.0

 

One thing I didn’t like about the Dreamy 2.0 is that if you wear underwear that is not a thong or seamless, people will know! The texture btw is very smooth and lovely to the touch.

The Gymshark tights can be a tad bit expensive, luckily I am still a student and they have student discounts 😁

 

Will I buy more of these or other Gymshark products in the future? Probably 🙈

 

By the way  I was contemplating on whether I should post photos of myself wearing the thights, because I don’t look skinny fit or fit. I saw photos of Gymsharkwomen or #gymshark on instagram and they all show women who are superfit and has flat tummys. Then I realized that maybe there are some who maybe has the same body as I, and maybe showing my photos would help or can help a little.

Happy Birthday to me!

Yesterday  I turned 28! 2 more years until I turn 30! I feel old

I didn’t have a big celebration, I just celebrated it with my family. I was actually very happy because of the weather. You see on Sunday it was snowing a lot! Like everything was white, so I was very happy when there were no snow on sight and very sunny yesterday.

I did not get any birthday gifts from friends or family, because you never really get gifts the older you get and because whenever they ask I don’t really know? I did buy myself my own gifts! That I can write about in a different blog post 🙂

 

For my birthday this year we did hot pot at home! I bought the ingredients before I went home to my moms house. I bought the things I thought would be good and that everyone would enjoy.

We all enjoyed the hot pot! the fish balls and dumplings were so good. One of the highlights of my celebration though was the ube cake!We don’t eat ube cake as often because 1. it’s expensive.

 

We were a total of 7 people who celebrated with me btw, and let me tell you. That ube cake was gone after a few minutes! It was very delicious though. The right amount of sweetness if you ask me.

 

 

Turim Luxe Hotel

I stayed at Turim Luxe Hotel which I booked through Booking.com. My journey to the hotel, because I followed Google Maps was a long walk. I think I walked about 20 minutes, but I found out later on that there was a much shorter way to the public transportation system.

Upon entering the room, you are greeted with music! Which is nice I think. The bathroom was clean and filled with the necessities I need.

The bed was big! and very comfortable! I haven’t had a bed all too myself in a very long time, and let me tell you it is great!

 

Over all I was pretty much contented with my stay. I didn’t use services such as breakfast or anything.

If I visit Lisbon again, I would definitely stay at this hotel again

Portugal 2019

At the end of February I went to Portugal, alone. Last year, I told myself to try to visit a new country when I plan on travelling. So this year I decided to go to Portugal for two different reasons. First reason was it is a new country I can scratch off my scratch-off map. The second reason was because there is a Louis Vuitton stamp that is exclusive to Lisboa. Yes! I am that much of an addicted collector that I visit a new country for a Louis Vuitton stamp.

 

I was in Lisbon from February 26 up until February 28. I wasn’t able to do everything I planned to do, but I was contented with what I was able to see and do.

 

I would want to visit Lisbon next time and stay there for a little bit longer, and I would want to travel with someone else.
