Karina creates beautiful clothes made with the softest fabrics. Undorn's showroom with summer dresses, party dresses and wedding dresses is located in Hegdehaugsveien 27B.

Vi hadde en fantastisk tur til Bora Bora. Først fløy Jørgen og jeg til Tahiti fra Auckland til New Zealand, og brukte noen dager på øyen Mo'orea. Mo'orea er bare en kort fergetur unna Tahiti. I Mo'orea svømte jeg med delfiner for første gang. Det var en fantastisk opplevelse! Dessuten fikk vi mate og klappe ville rokker i sjøen. De kom opp til oss for å få litt kos:)
Etter oppholdet i Mo'orea fløy vi videre til Bora Bora. I Bora bodde vi bodde hos en venn. Bora Bora er en øy hvor alt du trenger er sol, sjø og en dykkemaske. Det er paradis på jord. Vi kjørte rundt øya, svømte, og snorklet i sjøen. I tillegg besøkte vi luksuriøse resorts utenfor hovedøya. Hotellene hadde kanoer og SUP brett til utlån. Vi nøt spa-området og massasjebehandlinger.
Jeg følte meg avslappet i Bora Bora. Selv om det er en av verdens dyreste øyer, opplevde jeg de enkle gledene i livet. Et eksempel var å kjøre båt med lokalbefolkningen ut til atollen eller "motu" som lokalbef...
Frankand Island is a pearl in The Great Barrier Reef. It is a remote Island, and there is only one tour company operating to bring a very small group of tourists out to the island every day. We were lucky to be invited along to document the Island fun. On the way out to the Island, we rode a boat past crocodiles resting in the mangrove trees and arrived at stunning Frankland Island. Once there, we got free lunch of fresh seafood, meat, bread and salad.
It was time to snorkel in the reef! We saw a sea snake, big purple "Ariel" clams closing when you took your finger close to it, purple star fish, nemo fish and other colourful fish in all large and small colours of the rainbow. The guide took us out to a spot with wonderful snorkelling on one side of the island. It was the best snorkelling I did in Cairns. There we got to snorkel up close to a large sea turtle and I was beyond happy for this turtle encounter. It was so slow and peaceful, and I have been unlucky seeing turt...
Sunset over Cape Reigna, the most northernly point of New Zealand
My New Zealand route was:
Day 1 Auckland – Day 2 Waiheke Island beaches and vineries by public bus – Day 3 bus to Pahia (Bay of Islands) – Day 4 day trip with Great Sights to hole in the rock and dolphin swimming – Day 5 day trip to Cape Reigna – Day 6 Morning bus trip directly to Rotorua followed by an evening bath in hot springs at The Polynesian Spa – Day 7 trip to the Rainbow Springs Nature Park to see kiwi chicks (one of the only places in New Zealand where you can) then Te Pui to see the volcanic geysirs and Maori dance and song show. I loved the dances and traditional Maori clothing. Evening bus to Auckland – Day 8 Waiheke Island to finish touring the beautiful vineries.
I like to travel cheaply and stay at hostels that cost $20 dollars per night, and book cheap bus routes to get from A to B. On the last eve, I splurged on a hotel night to end the holiday with a taste of luxury :)
A trip to Kuranda Koala Garden and Bird World Kuranda seen in pictures. I absolutely love getting up close and personal with animals, especially at wildlife sanctuaries where the Aussie creatures have more space to live in, and the caretakers love their animals and take care of them like their own. A special thanks to Mike for giving us an in-depth tour of the koalas and letting us hold snakes and koalas and describing the animals in detail to us. First time interacting and holding such large birds too! They fly to you and sit in your hand and eat or on your hat or shoulders haha!
We were picked up in Cairns to drive to the animal sanctuary (http://www.wildlifehabitat.com.au) Rainforestation (http://www.rainforest.com.au) in Kuranda. The animal keepers were so kind and lovely, giving us a guided tour with information about all the animals including the kengurus, wallabies, crocodiles, koalas, dingus, cassowary, Tasmanian devil. I had a moment up close and personal holding a crocodile and a koala. I love the beautiful koalas and how soft their fur is. They live off only one kind of eucalyptus.
After learning about the animals and petting the wallabies, we went on an army duck tour inside the rainforest(http://www.rainforest.com.au) learning about all the different rainforest plants, including a heart shaped poisonous plant, saw the bright blue butterfly (https://australianbutterflies.com) and The Cairns Green Butterfly. We also spotted some wildlife in the jungle tour on the lake in the army duck. After greeting the animals, we had a delicious buffet in...
I Have Never Met A Girl Who Is Happy With Her Stomach
I opened a brand new Australian Vouge, and much to my sadness saw an in-depth article about different procedures and descriptions of plastic surgery. Since when do we need all this to be beautiful? Receiving a lot of free clothing and products in the mail every week, I can truly say that stuff and money doesn’t give happiness. It’s the sunset walk, the time spent with your love ones and the hobbies you love.
Apart from clashing expensive products on our faces every day, isn’t it enough to just be who we are, smile, wear our favourite jeans or dresses and tie back our hair that needed to be cut three months ago in a sloppy pony tail? I think it is enough. The boys and girls who fall in love with you truly don’t like your make-up or care if you wear any. They like your smile, and don’t mind if your boobs are small, saggy, if you have strech marks on your thighs, or warts on your feet.
Love and respect yourself for you, and take care...
I have lived a few different places in my life: India (7 months), Canada (1 year), Trondheim (1 year), Oslo (forever), Bergen (5 years), Reykjavik (4 years), Rome (7 months), Brazil (4 months), Brisbane (6 months) and Sydney (Kirribilli, Newtown and the Northern Beaches 1.5 years), Cairns (still counting), but I have to say, living in the Northern Beaches is the most beautiful place I have ever lived. Life there was relaxed. I lived five minutes from the beach, and every day after work and the weekend was a holiday. People walking their dogs along the boardwalks of Dee Why and Manly, the empty pristine beaches at Curl Curl and Freshwater. Not to mention the adorable shops in Freshwater. The Bondi to Coogee walk is also perfect. The perfect surf waves. I will never forget the warm and beautiful summer of 17' on the Northern Beaches.
I samarbeid med GANT Norge har jeg fått vise frem noen plagg fra kolleksjonen deres. Jeg har alltid synes plaggene til GANT er tidløse og elegante, og det er en glede å få jobbe med klesmerket. Jeg elsker fargene og stoffene fra kolleksjonen, spesielt korallfargene og silkestoffene på de to kjolene nedenfor. Den marineblå vår- og høstjakken har et nydelig snitt. Den blå sjorten og jakken er klassiske og har god kvalitet. Under ser dere noen bilder av klærne jeg fikk velge ut fra http://no.gant.com. Bildene er helt uretusjerte fordi det er vakkert å vise bilder med litt imperfeksjoner, da det naturlige lyset ofte er kjempefint.
Følg gjerne @gant1949 på Instagram for spennende oppdateringer på deres kommende kolleksjoner:)
I was lucky to work with GANT Norge, and got to choose these beautiful pieces of clothing from their collection. I love the classic blue shirt and navy blue jacket from GANT Norge, two timeless pieces. The dresses are made of silk and have the...
