today I turn 30


Today, October 28, I turn 30 years old and tomorrow morning Sølve and I are off to Paris with two close friends. They love food and champagne just as much as we do. It's going to be the most perfect start of my 30s!

In the photo above I'm wearing the birthday gifts from my darling friend L; an elegant black top (or very short dress ;-) and a beret, both from the stylish Tiger of Sweden. Thank you sooo much, L. You are the best!

By the way, the silver pillow was a gift from my friend the 10 cent designer when she and her husband visited Bergen in August. So fab!

Below are some of my Paris inspirations; some guide books, a handy map book that Jolayne gave us when we met her in Paris in December 2007, Pia Jane Bijkerk's beautiful Paris: Made by Hand and the photo book My Paris Equation of Happiness by Mariana Newlands.

Happy weekend all!

PS: I'll give you a report on this list later.

  27. Grattis i efterskott. Jag har länge haft en teori om att par som fyller år nära varandra är de som håller i längden, ni är ytterligare ett exempel på att det stämmer. God tur!
