Two Choker Tops that I Love

If you have asked me half a year ago, what I think about a fabric choker, I would answer you that I don’t quite get this trend. Why would anyone make a hole in a top, instead of leaving it be as a turtleneck? But then I tried one on, and it grew on me. I absolutely fell in love with it and how it looks on me. I really like the fact that it looks different and the part on your neck has a unique accessory look. The scarfs are one of my favourite accessories, that means I am very used of keeping some fabric on my neck. Therefore a choker top fabric gives me that comfy feeling that I like.

How did this choker trend from the 90s became so popular nowadays? For the past year, a lot of trends from the 90s came back, such as overalls, high waisted jeans and jumpers. Trends go around and come around only with new fabrics and details. The choker trend started on the runways in 2016 and then celebrities took it over and this highly influenced people to try it on themselves. This accessory is an easy way to adapt 90s trend to any outfit and that is probably why this trend grew on people so quickly. Nowadays, it is no longer considered as a 90s “cool girl” look. It became a key item and a distinct accessory.

I haven’t tried any choker necklaces just yet, guess I am a bit slow on things. I like to try and “taste” things in my own pace, without rushing or going with the flow. Chokers seem to slowly fade away, since the long necklaces take over their place. However, lately I have been thinking about of getting one shiny choker for summer, to make an outfit more interesting. What do you think about chokers?

Summertime Colours and Smiles

FullSizeRender-23

 

Can you think of a day

You would be content with it all…

Does it include love?

Your passion, peace, activities or a hug?

 

Summertime colours and smiles,

Bring some joy and healthy shine,

To your face and your mind,

To your soul as well, how nice…

Sunshine helps to keep it alive,

Spread the love around,

Because there is no time to hide,

The stage is yours,

Your life is your show.

Live it to the fullest!

My favourite parks in Oslo, Norway

What can be better than finding a beautiful park in the middle of the city? Here, I will share my personal favourite parks in Oslo, Norway.

The first is definitely Royal Palace Park, which is probably the most central park in Oslo. It is not that big, but such a peaceful and green park! The main street is just down the hill, which makes it a great location for some relaxation! There are many beautiful plants, fountains and ducks swimming in the pond. You can imagine yourself as a royal while walking around, if you have a bright imagination. This park is especially beautiful in the evening, as the sun is slowly settling down between the trees. It is such a magnificent sight!

Number second would be Frogner park with Vigeland Sculpture Park inside of it, which is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Oslo. It is situated in the area called Majorstuen. There are plenty of tourists in Vigeland Sculpture Park on summertime, to see all wonderful naked sculptures and roses blooming in all shapes and colours. While Frogner Park is a popular place among the locals, where people like to walk their dogs, go for a run or just enjoy their time – sunbathing, grilling, being with their friends or family. It is very nice to walk around the park and discover simple hidden nature beauties. I love waterfalls, small or big, it doesn’t matter. This park has it, and I am so glad for it! It is actually the largest park in the central parts of Oslo.

There are no roses in the park yet, but I will definitely take some photos once the roses will start blooming in all kinds of beautiful colours. ๐Ÿ™‚

Last but not least, there is a place called Sognsvann. I am not sure if it is considered as a park, but I look at it as one. There is a lake with a walking/running path that goes around the whole lake, which is around 3 kilometres long. Also there is an area which is great for sunbathing, fishing, grilling and picnics. You can also go for a swim or work out on the grass. People really love this place for work outs and runs. However, at warm days the place is packed with people sunbathing and grilling. If you don’t like to be in the mass, you can walk a bit by the lake and find a small, private space besides the water. Enjoy nature in your own way. This lake is not situated in the city centre, so you have either to take the metro or drive the car. There are plenty of parking spots, completely for free! Doesn’t this sound amazing?

If you are really into different plants and trees, then you should also visit Botanical Garden in the area called Tรธyen. I used to work in this place and I can definitely say that it is a beautiful park worth a visit. Also a popular place for wedding photoshoots. Would you like to take a picture by the palm tree while in Oslo? Then this is the place you want to visit!

Take a walk in the park and smell the fresh air. Because sometimes that is all You need!โ™ก

Rain is essential for life

IMG_7867

Water has so many benefits for all of us.

It is so good for You, yes You,

Your body thanks You, yes You.

Drink water without looking to the sides,

And you will feel energy drifting inside.

But what about plants, those beautiful plants?

I hope you like spring, when the nature wakes up.

Rain is essential for life.

Nature needs sun and the water as well.

So next time it`s raining and you are missing the sun,

Step back to the side and think of the rain

As healing and essential,

Healthy and refreshing.

Appreciate the rain,

Without it nature would be done.

Fluffy Listener

Model: Teddy

When I describe You the features,

Could You tell me the name?

I want a listener who will listen,

And won’t judge in any way.

A listener who will look into my eyes with pure sparkle and joy,

And won’t interrupt me,

Simply smile all the way.

I told You the features,

Do You have now a name?

Could it be humans best friend, a fluffy joy,

Whose whole world falls apart when You leave?
