Happy Wednesday, little Saturday. Hope you are all having a nice week so far.
When I was reading for my exams I tried out a few new recipes and one I really loved was the cauliflower fried rice recipe. It is so simple to make, it is healthy and filling, definitely a winner! I made a vegetarian version, but feel free to add whatever you like; chicken, shrimps, beef or pork.

What you need for one person:
- 1/3 of an Onion
- small head of cauliflower
- Preferred amount of Broccoli
- 2/3 eggs
- spices (salt, pepper, or whatever you prefer)
- Any other vegetable of choice.. (corn, carrots, peas, sugar snaps... etc)

It is really a mix of what you got in the fridge. You start with making the cauliflower rice, either in a food processor or store bought. Drain it a bit and set to the side. Cut the vegetables of choice is similar sized pieces and fry them in some coconut oil in a pan, add the rice and stir. Just before finish add a couple of eggs and the pieces. You have another protein source you can use less eggs, but if eggs are the main protein source add at least 2/3. I prefer adding "hard" vegetables and not tomatoes or vegetables like that as they give a lot of sauce.

It is really the perfect student food, it keeps you full and it is a cheap meal (and you can use all of your leftovers).

Definitely worth a try! XX

Currently sat at home working on my masters dissertation, which I have for the last couple of days. To be honest it is not too bad, I find my topic very interesting and the view at home is amazing. However, I do enjoy family time as well, thats the main reason why I am back. It is all about finding the balance between work and fun. I am really enjoying the summer so far!

Good evening sweeties! Hope you all had a nice day. It is so relaxing being back in Norway, although I do find it a bit too relaxing. Life in London is so busy compared to here, both in a good way and not. But I like the busy life, I like always having something to do and see, I like the relaxed and social lifestyle. Drinks after work, meeting friends in the park and just enjoying the city. That is something I really miss about the lifestyle in Norway. However, I guess its all about the different culture. In Norway we enjoy spending time at home and if we go out it is normally a big night. In England it is part of the social life to go out for after work drinks or meet up for a casual drink and some food. Or just in general spend more time outside of home, which I think is a good thing. But of course it is nice to have some relaxing days at home and I must admit the living standard in England is very mixed! Everything from small old flats, to big great flats or houses. I currently live in a shared flat, which is ok but not great. I do however live in a great neighbourhood, Notting Hill, so I am really lucky. It is nice to be back in Norway but I am very excited to come back to London, my home, to see friends and someone special.

Happy Wednesday! It has been such a nice day in Norway today, finally some proper summer weather. Been enjoying it all day. It is so nice to come back to Norway during the summer; to see family most of all but also just to relax for a bit. I am staying for 3 weeks this time and I am really hoping this weather will continue.

I cannot believe I have been in London for 4 years now. I have finished a bachelor degree, I have finished my exams for my masters and the only thing left is the masters dissertation. The dissertation is probably the biggest job, 12 000 words, but at least it is about a topic I am interested in; competition in the pharmaceutical industry and how it affect us as consumers. It sounds pretty boring, but it is interesting to see how the big companies can control how us as consumers can get medicines and even the price of the medications. It is a very hot topic at the moment, so I look forward to start writing it for real. It is due in September, so I still got some months left, both to work and enjoy. I do not have any specific plans this summer, only a few short trips at the end of July. It will however be a nice summer, I am happy and I am surrounded by some amazing people. I am lucky.

Wow, time flies! A new school year has passed and another year in London. It has been a great year, probably the best year in London so far. I am truly happy, I love what I am doing and I have some amazing people around me.

A lot has happened since last time I wrote. I have finished my exams, I have been traveling quite a bit; Norway, America and around England. I have grown a lot and feel more confident about where my life is going. I have met someone great and really enjoying life. I still have my masters dissertation to finish before I can say this school year is over, but I am excited about writing it. I will tell more about all of this in another post!

I am excited to start blogging again!

Hope you all had a nice weekend! Mine was busy but very nice, done a lot of fun things.

One of the highlights was however Winter Wonderland, which has finally opened. It is such a nice and cosy tradition. Christmassy and everyone is happy!
Did a few rides and went for some drinks at one of the German bars.
My favourite ride is probably the swings that takes you high up! The view is just amazing. Definitely worth it even though it is very cold!

Winter wonderland is open until the 2nd of January 2017
Opening hours: 10 AM - 10 PM
Closest station: Marble Arch.

It is definitely worth a visit, even if you do not like rides. There is plenty to do and such a cosy park + it is free!

Wednesday, midweek and my two worst days at university is over. Got some really exciting plans the next few days! Looking forward to it.

Today I will go watch the 'Fantastic Beasts' at the electric cinema in Notting Hill (I will write a different post about the place) and I am super excited. I love Harry Potter and I have been looking forward to this movie for a long time. Back to the world of fantasy!

I just love living in Notting Hill! So many cute cafes, restaurants and houses. It is also so easy to get around, Hyde Park is close and I just got everything I need here. London is amazing.

Hei lovelies! It is Tuesday, last full week of November 2016 and perfect timing for a London tip. I thought I would tips about the a restaurant/bar today.

London has several roof tops and tall buildings, which of course comes with an amazing view of London.
'Duck and Waffle' is one of them. This bar/restaurant is based not far from Liverpool Street and has an amazing view. It is a perfect place for after work drinks, day or evening drinks. The amazing thing is that it is open 24/7! So whether you want to see the sunrise, sunset or just enjoy yourself with a few friends it is the perfect place. It is basically a first come first serve basis in the bar, which means as long as there's space you can come. You cannot reserve a table, but there's more or less always space even though it is not a huge bar. The restaurant however you probably have to book for, especially if you want to go for lunch or dinner, for breakfast there's normally space. The food is tasty, I went for dinner and tried a few things like the fish and some sides. I have however heard the waffles are amazing, which is serves either sweet or with duck etc. Fascinating menu!

The main reason why I would recommend this place is however because of the view and the cool interior. Definitely worth a visit! Prices are a bit stiff, but I guess you pay for the view.

Price: $$$$$

Location:
110 Bishopsgate, Heron Tower, 110 Bishopsgate, 38th Floor, London EC2N 4AY

Nearest tube station:
Liverpool Street Tube Station
