This time last week I would have been home after flying back from Oslo! After 2 weeks of waiting, I was finally going to Norway! I guess as I mentioned briefly on another post, it was just a spur of the moment decision to go at all, but i'm glad I thought this way and did it! The trip was to make up for the fact that I can't go to the Couture Gals meetup in March as i'm going on a mini holiday with some of my non Gal friends. I really wish I was going to the meetup but my holiday has been booked since October last year so I can't cancel!

I met Monica, Mimi and her boyfriend Jan-Henrik at the airport. They were so kind to pick me up! And they let me stay with them in their apartment!! You guys are so sweet, thank you so so much! Monica and Ingvild said they are going to come to London in summer, so I really want to take them clubbing! After arriving at their CHIC apartment, JH drove us to a mall that Monica showed me part of. It interlinks with the bus and train terminals which is cool! It was quite late so not much was open, but we did manage to get some food at Burger King (the first of many visits) and also got some fruits from a small supermarket type place.
Before going to get ice cream we were in another smaller mall and bumped into a guy called Liam, who is going to the Couture Gals meeting in March! He is so tall! And younger than me! It's like this guy at work who is 17 or something and towers over me! He wrote a blog entry here about our mini encounter and said that i'm like a Gal celeb! That's the first time someone has said that which is cool...but also a dangerous tag to have lol! Thank you though!!
|Liam, Ingvild and Me!|
We went to this small Japanese style store which was like Tokyo Toys here in London...just more expensive haha. Obviously nothing caught my eye. Here is a photo of their outside display from the ground floor:
Actually, I say that I wasn't going to shop in Oslo but I did find some cute sneakers in one store! Unfortunately they only had the size before and after mine, which sucked! Too big and too small were not great >.< Oh well! I guess I saved money haha. I did buy a bottle of Vanilla perfume from the Body Shop the following day though...I couldn't resist! And the price was basically the same as if I had bought in the UK so :D yay! I was shocked to find that there are 7-Elevens in Norway!! I thought it was only Japan and USA that had them, but clearly i'm wrong! Here are some cheesy photos of me and Ingvild by 7-Eleven haha:
|Another one! haha|
Here are some more of my lovely tourist photos:

Monica found us and we went to a chinese place for some food. We sat there for a few hours just talking, it was great! Then we moved onto Burger King (trip #2) and got some ice cream and sat there for an hour or so talking and watching/listening to Para Para ;p Ingvild had to get the bus at 9 so we went to her bus terminal with her to wait. After she left, me and Monica went BACK to BK for a burger haha (trip #3!!!) All we do is eat, listen to loud music and talk! haha. On the way home, the sugar and BK additives definitely kicked in and we were chatting some random stuff! (typical of me and Monica) and we came up with new names for the stations, as well as a new Black Metal Band haha. Oh..we're so crazy!
|Our new band - Hells Fire! ;D|
After we got in, we read some egg and Ranzuki magazines and then went to sleep. The next day, Monica had another job interview (I HOPE YOU GET IT BB!) and we went to the mall, where I waited for her in...yep, BK! :D After the interview we went to MacDonalds (we needed a change of scenery), camwhored, and I also printed some photos off from my camera. I really want to start doing this to document my stuff on a hard copy for people to look at!
|We just call it Oasis lol!|
|With newly printed photos! And a smile...haha|
|I brought some of these back 8D|
It was then time for us to head home and to then head to the airport! I think Monica's bf might think i've made her a bit too crazy! Sorry!! Monica brought Mimi with her to the airport to say goodbye! Such a cute dog, omg. Thank you so much Moinica, JH, Ingvild and Mimi for a fabulous time in Norway, for letting me stay with you guys and picking/driving me to the airport and for letting me hang out with you guys!
