Some photos from a fun shopping night at one of my favourite stores, Kate Spade New York! ūüôā The brand offers such a delightful assortment of¬†vibrant, colourful things – from purses and wallets to dresses, jewellery, and stationery.

I love the new rose print collection! It is a classic print that easily goes with a black skirt or black trousers – perfect for spring. Here are my favourites:

Tale as old as time

Yesterday, Eirik and I saw Beauty & the Beast at Colosseum. The cinema was decorated with themed objects like floating roses and the workers even dressed up as characters from the movie.

The showing was sold out, so the theatre was quite packed. This did not make the experience any less enjoyable, though, because the seats were very comfortable and the only thing that can be improved is to have drink holders and wider armrests.

I watched the movie in 3D and really would have preferred to have done without, since the movie was so beautifully done that the 3D effects became superfluous.

Emma Watson was truly perfect for the role of Belle! I liked that the character was portrayed as a strong, intelligent woman without losing touch of her femininity. Belle is the heroine every woman should aspire to be: beautiful and smart.

Have a great weekend, dear readers!

Taco Fridays in Norway

For many Americans, tacos are not quite what come to mind for dinner on Friday night. Rather, tacos are eaten on Taco Tuesdays, typically by college students and usually from a fast food chain like Taco Bell. Norwegians approach tacos differently: on Fridays, they enjoy “Fredagstaco” (Taco Friday), a meal that serves as a way to unwind after a long work week and enjoy the company of family and friends.¬†Being invited to taco night is a good chance for foreigners to get a glimpse of the local culture. It is a meal that easily suites everyone because each person can choose what to put on the taco.

 

Though Norwegian tacos closely resemble those found in America, they are viewed quite differently. Norwegians regard taco night as a special family meal, separate from their usual diet of pizza, potatoes, and meatballs. Getting tacos from a fast food place on any other day would cause quite a stir!

What do you like to put in tacos? Let me know in the comments below!
