As my seventeenth year of life is slowly coming to an end, it is time to think about which items I'd like to have for my birthday. I feel very privileged that I have the opportunity to wish for material goods that I might not really need, but I'm very happy to receive. If you are as privileged as me and you might need some birthday-wishes-inspiration, here is my wishlist so far this year.
Today I'd like to share with you an amazing trip I had together with my classmates a few months ago. At our highschool you get two field trips to foregien countries in your three years of school. One in your second year, and one in your last- and third year. As I'm currently in my second year, we got the great opportunity to go on a field trip this spring together with two of our teachers.
It all began with choosing the country/city we'd like to travel to. We could pretty much decide on every big city in all of the countries in Europe. I felt we were very privileged, because we had so many destinations to choose from, whereas most of the other second year classes had to choose between very few choices. After some voting we ended up choosing Rome, Italy as our field trip destination. Originally we had to use the trip as a part of an assignment, which the other classes also had to, but our two teachers choose not to use the trip for our assignment, which we were very content with. But even though we didn't have to do the assignment in conjunction with the trip, we still had a program for everyday, visiting all the famous landmarks in Rome.
We had five days in Rome and the first day was a travel day. It was a pretty tiresome day, because I had to get up at 3:30 AM to be in the airport at 6 AM. Everyone was tired but excited, and we made it through the airport security and into the plane. Even though we were tired, the plane ride was actually quite fun, as we were surrounded by each other and it felt like we had a great little community. We landed in Rome on a cloudy day, and went to our hotel. Our hotel only had two stars but I was very pleasantly surprised with the rooms. We lived in a great area in the city where we could just walk to Colosseum, Forum Romanum, The Spanish Steps and so on. We also saw the Vertican which was colossal and very beautiful. Of course we also tried a lot of delicious foods, such as pizza, pasta and "gelato" which is the Italian translation for "ice cream".
Of course we also went into the city in the evening to have fun, which we did and resulted in almost everyone being hungover every morning, but it was totally worth it.
I was very satisfied with visiting Rome, and especially together with my classmates. The funny thing is that none of us wanted to go home at the end of the five day trip, and I'll remember it forever and what a good trip it was.
We also took loads of pictures and videos over there, and here a some of the pictures I took of beautiful Rome.
Ah, the struggle af having to stop spending money all the time. It's hard when you're a huge shopaholic. Well I might just be dreaming about these items or I might buy them, who knows what my bank account will allow me to.

As you might saw in one of my recent blogposts, I've become a little obsessed with ear piercings. Not much time after that recent blogpost, I actually went to my local jeweler and got two new ear piercings above my old ones in each ear. Just two weeks after that, I decided to get another ear piercing at the top of my ear. It was not very painfull and I'm really glad that I got my ears pierced again. Now I'm just waiting to be able to put in some other earrings in my new piercings.
A new year means time for change, so now that I'm the only child left, living together at my parents house, it is time to make one of my gossip-girl dreams come true.
I'm in the process of re-doing my brothers old room, which is right next to mine, and make it into my new walk in closet and sewing/designing room.
So far I've put on a new wooden floor, and today I'm painting which is going to light up the room.
I'm really excited for the transformation and I can't wait to show you the final result!
Here is some progress pictures (though I forgot to take some pictures of how it looked before, with the old carpet and furniture, but it wasn't very pretty anyways).
As we all know, the start of a new year means crazy dieting and exercise for some people. While a lot of people already has given up on their "get healthy"- new years resolution, I'd like to show you a recipe that might help you keep on track with your resolutions. If you have a sweet tooth, but want to minimize your sugar intake, this recipe is perfect for you! It's all natural ingrediens and guilt free!
Here is what you'll need:
- Two frozen bananas
- 3 tablespoons raw cacaopowder
The day before:
Peel, and cut your two bananas into thin slices. Put the slices in a bag and put the bag in the freezer over night. You can also freeze your bananas several days before you're going to use them, I always keep a bag of sliced bananas in my freezer, just in case I want to make this recipe.
The day after:
Take your frozen banana slices out of the freezer. Boil some water. Put the frozen bananas in a food processer or a very strong blender with the cacao powder and some of the boiling water. You can add more boiling water if it is too hard to blend, but don't add to much, or else the product will become liquid.
After you have blended it for a few minutes, it should have a creamy and not liquid texture, and should look like delicious chocolate ice-cream.
