It’s summer, the sun shines brightly in Oslo. It’s hard to describe with words the beauty of Norway in this time of the year. Ok, this country is pretty any time of the year. But during summer there are no lenses that can capture the real colours we see around here. Whether you spend summer in the city or somewhere in the west coast, every corner has a charm that makes us fall in love with this place. And I am so glad to be back to one of my favourite areas in town.
As you may know by now, I am a passionate fan of Oslo. I’ve been living here for 4 years now after been coming and going so much forth and back from Rio. My first official home was at the St Hanshaugen/Bislett area. It is a lively central area, with a lot of young people, diversity, good cafés, restaurants and mostly, the St Hanshaugen park.
The park is where people in old times used to celebrate the summer Solstice (St. Hans in Norwegian). The park was planted by the city in the years 1876-86; it has a pavilion, and a reflecting pool covering a reservoir. The neighbourhood St. Hanshaugen is located west and south of the park. (via wikepedia).
My favourite coffee place is Java. If you are a coffee lover like me, you must try their coffee. It is a bit expensive comparing to the average but the environment, the pretty shop and the quality make it all worth it.
This is a good area to be in, especially now that a lot of people are travelling and it feels like we got the city only for us. I love to just go out and walk around, get some nice food at Coop down at Lille Bislett and sit in the sun to watch kids play basketball at the courts behind the Bislett Stadium.
That’s what we have done yesterday. I was wearing my new kimono from Zizzi. It was pretty print, made of soft viscose and has a delicate shine. I loved it. I’m so wearing it with jeans and heels. What if I try with just a pretty lingerie inside? Planning to get sexy back ahahhahahaha.
