Greased lightnin' - blue version

Finally I got my Christmas present from my my mum and her hubby. They had promised me a new vacuum cleaner for Christmas, I just had to find one I liked. It took a while until I found the perfect one. Earlier this week, while out shopping with my sister, I stumbled upon this tiny electic blue thing. I was so taken by the colour, I knew instantly I couldn't wait to go home and try it out. I'm playing Travolta's Greased lightnin' on the stereo while working my way trough my flat. Suddenly, vacuum cleaning is great fun!

Thanks, Mum and & Torkel! :)

But the shiny blue wonder isn't the only thing I've purchased this week. As I'm departing for Paris later today, leaving the ice and sludge hell that is Oslo, I needed new comfy shoes for strolling the streets of one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Alas;

These suede bike style shoes from Vagabond will be perfect with my trusty old Burberry trench. Not that I don't plan on trying out some gorgeous shoes in Paris, too. So in order to not scare the shoe store staff with horrid winter feet, I went and had a pedicure. I chose blue for that also, only a turguoise shade called "Surfing":

It was just an experiment to choose that colour now, but it'll be great for summer when I get a tan. I bought the whole bottle! :)

In other news, I've just been diagnosed with cancer for the third time. I'm waiting for the test results to know if it's the old one that has recurred, or a new one. Treatment will start next week when I return, and the docs know exactly what it is. They gave me leave of absence from the hospital. "Paris will do you good", my oncologist said. I wholeheartedly agree! Thank heavens for sensible doctors! And also, thank you so much all of you for your supportive comments on my last post.

So, see you around - next up will be images from Paris. Have a great weekend everyone!


  1. Lovely new vacuum- great colour and also loving the turquoise toes. Do hope you have the most wonderful time in Paris. You certainly deserve it. Looking forward to loads of pictures and lots of SHOES! XXX

  2. Love the shoes girl:)
    Hope you are doing better...

  3. I love a girl who picks a cleaning appliance based on color. :)

    Good luck with your continuing health issues....

  4. So sorry to hear about the cancer returning, Sniff :( It must be so disheartening to have to deal with this all over again. But try your very best to just enjoy the HELL out of Paris!! You so deserve it! Can't wait hear all about it when you return and live vicariously through your travels! XOXO!!!

  5. Oh my dear, Paris will do you good. I am so terribly sad to hear your news. I feel that you are such a fighter, and know you will continue on with your inner strength. Have you by chance ever heard of Kris Carr, My Crazy Sexy Life? If not, you have got to go to and fill up with her energy and advice.

  6. Oh Sniff this sucks. I hope you get your ass to Paris and soak up every second of goodness you can find. I will be praying for your triumphant return and the squashing of that dastardly cancer.
