YEY! It’s here again! Imagine FX has the prince of Persia as their theme for this month.

Workshops that interested me:

  • Capture a dynamic close-up (the cover picture)
  • Unveiling the secrets of fabric
  • Production design for games
  • Creature design for film and tv

I will be a little geek now! Have a pleasant evening!

My evening food today is Norwegian strawberries with vanilla kesam (think it’s called sour cream in english).Got the adorable panda fingerfood picks from my fiance. He bought them in Hong Kong.

I can honestly say, with my hand on my heart, that this is much better then candy! πŸ˜€ It tastes great, looks delicioso and you feel great after you have eaten it! No bad feelings people, just be happy and enjoy! πŸ˜‰

Have a nice evening! I’m full!

An simple fruit salad with strawberries, banana, watermelon, milk, honey and cinnamon… A healthy, cold and yummy snack after a work out πŸ™‚

Now I am going to start a new category in my blog: Maria’s food πŸ™‚

I’ve been very lazy when it comes to making dinner from scratch, and now I really want to be a good cook in the kitchen. I’ve been baking alot and I feel very comfortable when I bake, it’s my comfort-zone. But I have always hated making dinner because of the specific timeing, the varm oil flying all over the room, burning myself, buying lots of ingredients(that I never use again) and I am mostly a dessert yunkie πŸ˜‰

I’ll be posting both dinners and desserts. And I will keep my focus on healthy alternative dinners and desserts.

This is what is for dinner today:

Chicken sticks with sesame seeds, ovenbaked vegetables, thai rice and garlic sauce..

I’ve been following Marta Dahlig for 3 years now and I think her artwork is amazing! Her beautiful, curvy and realistic women are truely a great inspiration when I sit down and draw women. Hope (and wish and pray and BEG) to be half as good as her πŸ˜‰ Dive into pure beauty, look at her deviant page at



One of her most famous pieces.. The seven deadly sins, this is just one of them, VANITY

I love cities that dares to show of street art on the walls of buildings. If only street artists in Oslo was allowed to let their creativity loose on a boring wall all over Oslo, I personally will be smiling wider when I walk out the door πŸ™‚

Here are some pictures of some street art and some cute buildings.

Why can’t all cities of the world be as colorful as this street?! I bet we all would be a little happier πŸ˜‰

Came back from Stavanger today and had a great time with my father! We went to Prekestolen and it took 1 hour and 20 minutes up the mountain and the decent took 1 hour and 40 minutes.. The decent was the hardest part :S Up at the Prekestolen I just said “Oh my God, I’m so scared” all the time πŸ˜› Prekestolen is a massive cliff 600 meters over Lysefjorden and they say it could fall at any time! Found out later that it is hanging safe on the mountain after all..The next day we took a fjord cruise in Lysefjorden. Norways nature allways amaze me ❀

Here are some pictures from my little mini vacation ^^

Notice the doll on the mountain wall?

Yes, ahem… It was a cold and wet experience up a mountain in the rain.. So yeah.. I’m not looking fresh exactly πŸ˜›

I’m just scared in this picture πŸ˜›

Summer is here! And I am so looking forward to lazy days in the park, swimming, hanging out with my great friends, working out outside(!), clubbing, barbeque, travelling and lots of ice cream!!!

And now I am off to Stavanger! Going to walk up to Prekestolen with my dad!

So this is my semester project all done and delivered. Take a look and tell me what you think πŸ™‚
