 hspace{10mm}

Jeg er så glad i adventstiden, og nå er den endelig her. I går hadde jeg en utrolig koslig kveld med noen venninner og vi lagde dette pepperkakehuset. Jeg er så stolt over resultatet, det ble jo fantastisk! Gjør at jeg får lyst til å lage et jeg kan ha her hjemme også. Nå skal vi snart starte med litt julepynting her i huset, men tenkte å vise dere litt bilder fra gårsdagen først. Noen andre som planlegger å lage pepperkakehus før jul?

I love the weeks before christmas, and now it’s officially here. Last night was spent with some friends and we made this gingerbread house. I’m so proud of the result, it turned out amazing! Makes me want to make one to have at home as well. Now it’s almost time to start doing the first decorating of the house, but I thought I’d shower you in some pictures from last night first. Anyone else planning on making a gingerbread house before christmas?

CHRISTMAS DRESS – CHECK!

IMG_0017

For meg er det i dag juletiden offisielt starter. Julemusikk listen er klar, drar snart av gårde på julegateåpning, og det ligger enda litt snø i veiene. Kvelden skal nytes med pepperkaker og julefilm! Har også fikset meg julekjole, og det ble denne svarte fra Vila. Hva synes dere?

To me, christmas officially starts today. The christmas playlist is ready, I’m soon off a christmas street opening, and there’s still some snow here and there. I also got myself a christmas dress, and I ended with this black one from Vila. What do you think?

VILA

IMG_9965

Jeg har lett etter en kakigrønn oversized genser så lenge nå, og endelig fant jeg en på Vila for noen dager siden. Så behagelig, og perfekt for bare boots eller hvis man ønsker å style den sammen med jeans eller et skjørt. Og se – snøen har kommet! Den smelter nok snart, men er så hyggelig å se litt hvitt på bakken. Perfekt timing for å krype inn i en varm strikkegenser, eller hva?

I’ve been looking for an oversized kaki knit for so long now, and finally I found one at Vila the other day. So comfy, and perfect with just boots or if you want to style it with jeans or a skirt. And look – he snow has arrived! It’s going to melt shortly, but it’s nice to see some white on the ground. What better time to snuggle up in a big knit sweater?

I’VE TESTED SONY XPERIA Z3

Now I’ve had my new Sony phone for over a month, so I thought it was about time to tell you all what I think of it! I decided to give it a shot after my iPhone broke, so here you have my review of Sony’s newest phone.

IMG_9943

The design

I really like the design on this phone, and especially this color. It’s quite large, I think it’s just in the middle of iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, but it really doesn’t matter much. I thought I didn’t want a big phone, but you get used to it very quickly. And it’s also much better for watching series, taking pictures, reading and playing games.
The design is classy, and timeless. On top of that it’s waterproof, so you can swim in a pool with it or use it in the rain and it won’t get damaged at all.

It also exists in a compact version which is smaller, but still a slight bit bigger than iPhone 5s (still smaller than iPhone 6).

The battery

This is what excites me the most. I use my phone probably more than average, and I had to charge my iPhone at night and two times during the day at least. This one on the other hand is absolutely incredible, and the battery lasts for a bit more than 24 hours with my use. I charge it during the night, and then I don’t have to even think about charging it during the entire day and night. And if something happens and the battery is low, I can put it in a mode so that the phone will last for a couple of hours more, and I will still have access to calls and messages.

The camera

I don’t know if it’s better than all the others, but it’s definitely crazy good. What I love the most is all the different options you have when taking pictures, and my favorite – blurry background. This is perfect for me who loves taking pictures of details, and with this I can make a noisy background disappear in blur. You also have lots of different effects, settings, panorama, and other. Plus the pictures come out in high quality, and the camera actually has 20,7 megapixels!

I used this phone a lot when I was at EMA, and the videorecording is out of this world. I wish I could show you, but I have no idea how to post a video here. Anyway, the film is good, but what shocked me the most was the sound. All the noise was gone, and the vocals from the preforming artist is completely clear. I was so happy when I came back to the hotel and looked at the result!

The Android system

Yes, it took a bit getting used to, but not as long as I would have thought. The Play store has pretty much all the same apps as the AppStore, and I get everything I need just as easily. The reason I didn’t change from iPhone earlier was because it was such a simple phone, and android looked too complicated. Now I’m completely used to the new system (I still learn something new from time to time), and it’s just as easy as it was with iPhone – if not easier. The emojis are also so much cuter, they look like small disformed potatoes, haha. I think they’re so adorable, even though they’ll look a bit different on another phone.

The sound

For watching self recorded films I think the sound is good, but for listening to music or watching a movie I don’t think the volume gets quite high enough, which is actually a bit annoying. To me it doesn’t matter too much because I mostly use speakers, but when using headphones it sometimes annoy me that I can have higher sound. I like having high enough sound to not hear everyone around when walking in the city or on the plane, so those are the times I would wish it was possible to turn it up a bit more.

CONCLUSION 

I can for once say with all of my heart that I love my phone. On a dice I would give it a 6, only thing that might could have pulled it down is the volume, and that it’s not compatible with the apple products I have from before. Such as airplay and the standard apple headset. It works with the headset of course, but as far as I’ve seen the microphone on these headsets doesn’t work with the sony phone. But then again, after looking a bit I’ve found a lot of good replacements. I would really recommend this phone to everyone who uses their phone a lot.

 To me my phone is a tool, and Sony Xperia Z3 is the perfect tool.

Det er virkelig nærmest umulig å ta bilder nå, og jeg beklager det. Det var en feil med objektivet mitt, som gjør at jeg nå er tilbake til det gamle kameraet og med zoomlinse. Ganske ubrukelig til min daglige bruk, så jeg håper dere kan tilgi det også håper jeg å få ordnet kameraet mitt så snart som mulig!

 hspace{10mm}

It’s close to impossible to take pictures now, and I’m sorry for that. My new lense had some issues, so I’m back to my old camera with a zoomlense while I wait for it to be repaired. Quite useless for my daily use, so I hope you can forgive me and I’m hoping my lense will be fixed soon!

Pics from my phone

Jeg har ikke hatt noe julefølelse på minst tre år, så da den plutselig kom krypene på for noen dager siden var det bare å gripe tak. Da tjuvstartes julen her i huset, med pepperkakebaking en uke før juletiden egentlig skal begynne!

Ikke mye som er mer julestemning enn å pynte pepperkaker?

 hspace{10mm}

I haven’t felt the christmas spirit for at least three years, so when it came a couple days ago I decided to enjoy it. That means head starting christmas with making gingerbread cookies a week early!

Not much is more christmas than decorating gingerbread cookies, right?

ART

_MG_1130
Dagen idag var planlagt veldig rolig, og det ble godt gjennomført. Startet dagen med å sove lenge, før turen gikk til Henie Onstad senteret med familien for å se utstillingen til Christoffer Nilsen. Personlig synes jeg det var veldig spesielt, men på en måte var det fremdeles kult!

Noen som har sett kunsten hans?

 hspace{10mm}

Today the plan was to take it real slow, and that plan became reality. A long night sleep, and went to an art exhibition to see Christoffer Nilsen’s work. Personally, I think it was very special, but still sort of really cool!

Have you seen any of his work?
