I will not take "but" for an answer!

Lettie from http://happyhippiehome.blogspot.com/ asked in Norwegian: "Hvilken bok var din favoritt bok som barn og hvilken bok er din favoritt som voksen? / Which book was your favorite as a child and which book is your favorite as an adult?"
Jeg hadde desverre ingen favoritt-bok som barn, men som voksen er min favoritt Mouthing the Words av Camilla Gibb. / I didn't have a favorite book as a child, but as a grown up it is Mouthing the Words by Camilla Gibb.
"Hva slags musikk likte du som liten og hva slags musikk liker du nå? // What kind of music did you like as a child and what kind of music do you like now?"
Det tidligste jeg husker Disney Klassikere; spesielt Løvenes Konge og Pocahontas. Og etter det er det selvfølgelig Backstreet Boys, Britney Spears, Anastacia, Atomic Kittens, Nelly Furtado, Jessica Simpson, Robyn og Emilia. Jeg hørte også på det foreldrene mine hørte på; som for eksempel Maggie Rielly, Bertine Zetlitz og Bonnie Tyler. Nå foretrekker jeg indie-pop, indie-rock og litt elektronika-pop og favorittene er Eva and the Heartmaker, Robyn, Adele, Rilo Kiley, Rachael Yamagata, Ani Difranco, I Blame Coco, Jason Mraz, Lykke Li, Maria Mena, Tegan and Sara, Maria Taylor, Tori Amos, Our Lady Peace, Alanis Morissette, Zeromancer, Lifehouse, Kate Voegele og Chris Daughtry. Min lite oppdaterte spotify-playlist er delt her! // The earliest I can remember is Disney Classics; especially The Lion King and Pocahontas.

Stine asked: "Could you link to where you found your laced green high heels from Asos? "
Hmm, I don’t have any green heels that I can remember, but if you’re talking about my gray Asos platforms they are unfortunately sold out. I don’t know if they’ll be taking them into stock again, I’m sorry. Last time I checked they only had one pair left, and that was months ago.
Bealerr from http://odmarkandthekelpies.blogspot.com/ asked: "What's your job, besides blogging?"
I don’t have a 9 to 5 job, but I'm a freelancing student and blogger.
"When you were younger, did you have a drastically different dress sense, or has your style been constant?"
Haha, anything but constant! I've been through it all, completely style-schizophrenic - much like I feel my style is now. I have been a tomboy, hipster, goth, sporty, black-metal, super girly, over-the-top, minimalistic, vintage, blending-in-teen and what-not. I've always kind of worn what I liked or wanted though - not what everyone else was wearing. Here I'm about eight, and it seems that at least my spirit has been consistent.
"Anonymous asked: When did you finally realize that you were gay?"
Are you my ex? No, just kidding. I "finally" realized I was gay when I met my lover, Ida, at the age of nineteen. I just knew for sure. I fell in love, fast and hard.
"Dana Lee from http://closetofmystery.blogspot.com/ asked: What do like to do in your spare time?"
I loooove traveling. I also love to cook, watch TV-series, sing in the shower, watch the rain fall outside of my window, look at my new books - but never feel like reading them. I listen to music, take beautiful pictures, re-arrange my closet, plan great adventures, dream of being rich and imagine life on a tropical island. Oh, and shopping.
Anonymous asked: "How did you get so famous?"
Haha, I didn’t know I was? I did not just ask myself that question, for your information!
Anonymous asked: "What do you like the most about Norway?"
I’ve probably said this a thousand times before, but I really do love our nature. Our scenery is just breathtaking, especially by the coast up north. We have the amazing northern lights, also known as the Aurora Borealis; which can only be described as magic. This is a picture of my home-town taken from an airplane this May.
"What inspires you atm?"
At the moment, I’m actually quite uninspired. I feel like I’m stuck in this little hole and I really want to get out. I'm really moody, if you didn't know, and the weather affects me more than I like to admit. When it rains, my days really are gray - but when it's sunny, things are better. Generally I'm inspired by romance - whether it is in a movie, a state of mind, a piece of clothing, a picture or just the feeling. If you mean just style-wise, in this moment and season: I'm inspired by maximum lengths, lace and colors. And nature will always inspire me. Always."Also, could you please share your fav makeup products?"
Oh my, tough question! I really suck at anything related to make-up, and when I say I use a concealer from H&M – I’m not kidding. I’m clueless, so if you could share YOUR favorite make-up products, I’d be thrilled! That said; what I have in my little make-up bag is lipsticks from The Body Shop, blush from NARS, foundation from CosmoBeauty, mascara from Elisabeth Arden and Max Factor, lipstick from IsaDora, Zanzuel powder and a random eyeliner.
"Last but not least, how do you achieve to be such a beautiful person inside out?!"
Aaaw, thank you – you’re such a sweetheart! I don’t think I am such a beautiful person inside out, I feel like I have a lot more flaws than the average person – but through blogging I prefer to share my good sides, just like everyone else. I feel like it would be really uninspiring and sad to just focus on my bad habits; like that I always just throw my clothes on the floor and leave them there for days or that I'm really bad at keeping in touch with my family up north. What you read and see is what I choose to share, and of course – no one wants to share their bad sides all the time. I do however think that being beautiful on the inside has a lot to do with humility, kindness and respect, which is what I would advise everyone out there to embrace.

  2. It's so nice to get to know you better! U're one of the few bloggers who don't just do outfit post, but open up to the world, may it even be partly, in the mean time.

  3. Love this. I was like, "me too!!" or " Great!!" all the time.
    And again, perfect selection of pictures.

  4. Great to know you a little more! Also I applaud you for not hiding in the closet about your sexuality. Many people would be completely scared to let anyone know, especially on the internet.

    The picture of Norway is gorgeous! Makes me want to visit just from that picture! :)
