After several hours of work this week, I’m all about the cozy sunday; I cannot explain how tired i am but at the same time how proud i am of myself and people around me.
I have been working at nights with my brother at the agency; and it is always nice to have deep conversations with him.
Not many people actually know who i am 100 percent, and because of all my experiences in life through my short age my heart and brain have a lot of wisdom; believe it or not.
Our conversation was based of not being scared of new experiences and judgment from others, the only one who stops dreams, challenges and new experiences in life is yourself. Of course we are scared of the unknown; but my conclusion is that if we let our fears take over we won’t be able to reach our goals and experience amazing life stories. I can keep this post going for ages, trying to explain this… but i think you already know this.
You got this…
THE WORLD IS YOURS!
For those who worried about my absence, I’m still here but I have been very busy with meetings, shootings and more work; as well as keeping up with my friends and family.
Other than that I finally got the chance to look for a new skirt since the new season has already kicked in and I’m very happy with this one. The flowers, the fabric and the detailing on it were the things that caught my eye and it fits my current style perfectly.
It’s time to lighten up, ladies. Summer is usually the time of the year to go blonder or add some sun-kissed strands to your mane. I decided to compile my comprehensive guide to highlighting your hair. Below you will find my tips for keeping your highlights looking natural, your hair healthy, and your beauty budget in check.
Before I begin, let me just say that my No. 1 tip is to leave it to a professional. If you want professional-looking highlights, you’re going to have to pay for them. That said, I have a few suggestions to keep in mind before, during, and after your visit to the salon. Here’s how to keep your color bright and your roots in check…
Stretch Your Budget
Since I would only recommend having a professional handle your highlights, the key to wallet-friendly color is stretching the time between trips to the salon. Four to eight weeks is the standard amount of time between salon visits, but even that is a big window. The highlights that require the least amount of upkeep start only a shade or two darker than your natural hair color and fade into a lighter color toward the tips of your tresses. Depending on how light you want to go, you might want to try either a dirty-blonde-to-honey-blonde or honey-blonde-to-beach-blonde gradient. Lastly, ask your hairstylist to use a toning gloss to seal in the color and make it last longer. This (along with a color care shampoo and conditioner at home) will prevent your color from looking dull as the weeks go by.
Maintain Healthy Hair
Lightening your hair automatically puts it in more fragile territory. So when I’m at the salon getting my color done, I always ask for a deep conditioning treatment as well. It makes a big difference in keeping my hair looking healthy. If you have color treated hair, it is also a good idea to avoid styling products that have a lot of alcohol in them, like many hair sprays. Alcohol will dry out your stresses and leach out the color. I also recommend using use a heat-protecting product when you’re blowing out, curling, or straightening your hair.

Since i had the day off and the weather was nice, i felt for having a very simple outfit which was a very good choice; it was very hot outside and to be honest, even if i love jeans…wearing them now is pretty much suicide.
Also i have been having comments of being a “fashionista” – Really bro?- I hate when people use that term on me. Why you probably wonder? Well, it’s because i just don’t like it. Even if i create my own outfits, very different to other girls in Oslo, and i don’t follow trends; i just don’t feel like that word is meant to be for me.
I want to be free and not being put in a bubble; i do more than fashion :D. But of course i appreciate a lot that people like the way i wear my clothes! <3 So big love.. yo’!
Did you sang? 😛
Even though I come of as a strong believer..
It hasn’t always been like that.
As a matter of fact I have even got to a point where I lost believe in every single human being.
It has been the past year that I’ve learned to trust on myself and those around me, who stands by on the bad and good life experiences.
Not only have I become a believer..
I also became a dreamer.
In the past I kept every dream to my wildest fantasies but nowadays I don’t and i won’t hide them ; I’m embracing every single dream into the fullest.
There may be some who will never believe in me and my capabilities or who knows may not want me to succeed.
And even though I’m not near to close to what I would like to accomplish I know I’ll get me there.
Some dreams have come true while I had least expected it and so quickly.
Believe in your dreams and put new challenges in your life! And be with people who wants you to be successful and want to succeed together with you <3 .
Hello you back!
Too quite over here! You already know the reason. Blogging have become extremely hard to do to the side of my work. But I’m happy to do what i do, and to actually say that I’m super proud of myself.
I’ll be working long hours with amazing people every day; and to see my photography being used in several places makes my heart and soul very happy. I cannot say that i’m a photographer, or that I’m expert when it comes to retouching; but my soul and brain are creative; which makes learning faster.
I have looked after some schools to start a career into what i’m doing now; let’s see how it goes.
Otherwise, since i work so much, simplicity and i have become very good friends. Here you have me with a shirt dress and some sneakers, to complete the look i have wrapped a sweater around my waist… but of course i didn’t take a picture of it. *Goldfish memory*0 kommentarer
It is really wonderful to have my dear friend Mårten back, not only because of his skills with the camera; also because i love hanging out with him. We have known each other since i went to high school, which is pretty much a really long time ago, crazy how time flies away. We got this little session of pictures since i have fixed my hair.
You already know that i always use basic colors. What i did here was to put simple details to make my outfit a little bit more interesting. The white sandals and the bag make this outfit totally different to what you are used to see, since i use a lot of sneakers.
Back to my hair, yes… it is lighter!, i never thought doing this kind of change, but i’m really happy that i did it. My eyes look lighter and more yellow-ish and my face looks less hard than with the black/red hair. Next week i will book a new appointment with Alex, to make the ends colder and lighter than the roots. I’m so looking forward to it.0 kommentarer
-In my next life I want to live my life backwards. You start out dead and get that out of the way. Then you wake up in an old people’s home feeling better every day. You get kicked out for being too healthy, go collect your pension, and then when you start work, you get a gold watch and a party on your first day. You work for 40 years until you’re young enough to enjoy your retirement. You party, drink alchohol and are generally promiscuous, then you are ready for high school. You then go to primary school, you become a kid, you play. You have no responsibilities, you become a baby until you are born. And then you spend your last 9 months floating in luxurious spa-like conditions with central heating and room service on tap, larger quarters every day and then Voila! You finish off as an orgasm.-0 kommentarer
Slowly but safely i’m putting colors into my outfits, for me it is important to feel comfortable as well as having something i would call the “fierce” feeling…Yes, that feeling you have when you know that you have a great outfit that makes you feel like a queen. If you by this point are laughing about it; let’s be honest! You know that feeling. 😉
This time i used this white skirt with green details that i absolutely fell in love by the first time i saw it; also since i use a lot of sneakers i styled it together with a green pair NB, a crop sweater and a black coat, since i felt like it completed the whole outfit.
Btw my best friend Mårten is coming back home to Oslo on Thursday, and i’m so happy to finally have him back. I’m so looking forward to hear all his stories about his trip around the world. Woop woop!
Here you have me, sitting in my cupcake pj’s and contemplating my room. I’m trying to learn new techniques when it comes to my photography since my work have started to become more and more serious when it comes to that. I almost feel like i want to go back to school and get some education in Art, Photography and design; but i feel a little bit confused as well; i don’t know if that would give me the dream job i’m looking for.
I have a big creativity and ideas, but when i’m feeling pushed into hard work or stressed out, my imagination and creativity just shots down. Maybe there is a way of learn how to handle it; i don’t know.
Photography for me is the way of putting out my feelings, traumas and love out without saying a single word, which i really love.
What’s your dream? Do you want to collaborate with me?
Tell that dream secretly on Instagram (GAMBITSKY) or Just email me!
After being extremely busy with work and several events; i have finally the pleasure to introduce you to an another of the stories of Amsterdam. This story is About My Sneaker Match; a concept created in Amsterdam By Niels Pourchez and his lovely lady Ginney Noa.
My Sneaker Match was inspired by creativity and the will of inspire others with their vision on creativity.
In life every single person is creating his or her own identity by making choices. You create an identity by styling yourself as well as molding your own personality.
– The thing is that behind each outfit there is a story. We don’t share these stories by words but with the brands we wear. These unknown stories were the beginning of my inspiration to create something- Says Niels.
Niels fell in love with Ginney Noa for a time ago. – She is strictly the most amazing and creative woman he has ever met with a lot of ambitions. From that moment he knew that they were the perfect team to create a concept that they would find themselves in.
After putting all their ideas together they created MY SNEAKER MATCH.
Since both of them work in the fashion industry, they have knowledge of styling as well as photography which make them a great team to create new styles, presenting different kind of people with different kind of personalities . Keeping still their distinguish concept.
On my sneaker match you will find an experience of stories. These stories consist of unique outfits of different kind of brands and exclusive sneakers. My sneaker Match will mark the details and show you how to create a great outfit to tell your own story.
-They also want to be inspired and inspire other with stories from other countries outside the Netherlands . The start of their journey will be this summer in the U.S.
The Website will be up again soon, but if you want to see more about My Sneaker Match make sure to check out Ginneys Blogg (HERE) and Niels Instagram (HERE)

Time is flying by so fast that I can’t even keep track of the days anymore.
The days are so hectic that i can’t even sleep for more than 4 hours.
For the moment I’m listening to Antony & the Johnsons, and writing here.. letting my mind and soul get some freedom for a while. I’m overwhelmed by the fact that i haven’t had time to be by my own, to let everything be and everything letting me be. Don’t missundestand me, i love what i do and i love being around people . But by this time, i’m just feeling that i really need to get some rest and let my mind, my body and soul get some egoboost.
My style have been changing the past few weeks as well, i’m trying out to use bright colors, skirts and crop tops.. which is very different since i usually always use jeans.
Maybe i will also cut my hair short and bright it up a little bit.. I don’t know.
I’m feeling for a big change. Let’s wait to see how it turns out.
For exactly 4 years ago i was standing on the same spot, walking around in my pretty dress and saying Good Bye to my high school fellows. This time it was the turn for this young lady!
Her Name is Juliette Alexa, the youngest of us four. I love all of my siblings with all my heart, but though; Juliette and I had always a very strong connection to each other since we remember.
Juliette is known at home for her strong character, honesty and love to us.
6 years ago I promised her to style her for her big day, and there i was! I couldn’t be any prouder of her. After seeing her cry on her books and being without sleep because all of the school work she had to do; there she was… Standing with her pretty pink dress, her boyfriend and friends.
Exited to take off her heals and put the sneakers on to start dancing; to celebrate her amazing day.
All of our graduations have been a big step for everyone of us since the rest of our family isn’t in Sweden, and after broken promises from the closest persons we know. We learned to deal with some feelings and just support each other; to grow, no matter what or who is getting on our way.
We see us like strong lionesses getting into our goals and dreams with other lions that care about us and wishes to grow together with us.
I’m really happy to see how far we have come, in a foreign country and language that we didn’t understand at all. Today we speak 4 different kind of languages, we follow all of our dreams as well as we have the freedom to express ourselves.
Congratulations Juliette and to all of you who just graduated. Now it is time to discover the world!
Thank you to our wonderful, beautiful and amazing Mother for being there all the time <3 .
By this time I’m sitting on my way to Sweden! Wohooo!
I have been missing my family and those swedish meatballs; unfortunately i will be there just for 1 day to style my sister, a collaboration plus two meetings and then i travel back home to Norway since i have a lot to do. And to be honest, even if my family live in Sweden, i really don’t like to be there for several days. I just don’t feel like it is a home for me, even if i had lived there as well.
Nevermind, i’m gonna kiss my mami and my siblings a lot and enjoy my little time there.
See you soon again! <3
