october favourites





For a while I've been looking for a colouring book, yes a colouring book. I swear I can never find one. Ive been wanted to step up my colouring game for a while now. Im not the most confident when it comes to colors, so it usually ends with me ruining a drawing I've spent ages on..
I was browsing through the bookstore as I always do when I'm in the city, I came across this little gem, Secret garden colouring book by Johanna Basford. Johanna Basford is and amazing artist who creates intricate illustrations. (Honestly I can't stop flipping through the book cause its so pretty.)  Throughout her book you'll find little hidden animals in her drawings, mazes, and some unfinished patters that is left for you to complete. (more of her work Johanna Basford)

Right before I went to The Philippines back in July  I bought myself a goPro, wanting to document everything on my trip. Honestly I felt a bit awkward walking around with a camera on a stick, (I got a lot of weird looks).. Having never used on, I spent most of my trip figuring out how it works. I did get a couple of clips of me snorkeling (for the first time)..
Now that I've had some time to play around with it, I get what an awesome camera it is and the endless possibilities. all month I've been outside taking time-lapse of the sunrise/sunset, of the clouds moving across the sky, its really cool to watch (I feel like the discovery channel or something)

The gopro camera is such a nifty little thing to have with you on holiday. Its small, waterproof and it shoots in HD what more could you want? The image quality is pretty good with its fisheye lens, you never have to worry about not being in frame. With different features like video, time-lapse, photo, Wi-fi, and so on. Great shot on land or in the sea. I just wish it had a viewfinder and the battery would last longer.

So tell me what have you been liking in october?

autumn




Well hello there, sorry for the absence. Work has been hectic and the weather has been absolute shit!
Classic norwegian west-coast weather; sour, wet and windy.
The only thing you can do is to get your comfiest sweats out, make yourself a big cup of tea, crack on some candles, curl up with a blanket and a good movie (or book) and call it a day.





Atumn movies:
  • The lake house
  • Practical magic
  • 500 days of summer
  • Scream
  • Pocahontas
  • Casper (the movie) and Casper meets Wendy
  • The shining
  • Ghostbusters
  • A nightmare on elm street
  • The Blair witch project
What kind of movies do you like to watch during autumn?

Went out on the fjord as the sun was setting.

My first meeting with Aurora Borealis





canon eos 450d /ef 18-55mm

With the temperature dropping down to 0 degrees at night, making it perfect for stargazing. 
So I decided to go outside, (having just recently learned how to shoot at night) to see what I could get. Suddenly I noticed a green tint on the pictures I took, wondering what it could be. I never expected to see green lights dancing above me. Ive heard its possible to get a glimpse of aurora borealis where I live, but I've never seen it. Until tonight, I honestly couldn't believe it. I just got to tick off a major thing on my bucket list. (not gonna lie, it brought a little tear to my eye) As I've said before, there is nothing as magical and enchanting as a starry night. 

How about you, ever seen northern lights?
