~ Back from London! ~

In august, I was lucky enough to get a ticket to one of Kate Bush's concerts! :D Thursday morning, last week, my mother and I left for London. The first night we saw the Lion King musical, which gave me chills all down on my legs :3 Other than that, we've mostly been walking. In parks and streets, looking around, finding transport and places to eat and shop :) Our feet and backs have been hurting quite a bit this weekend, and I'm still pretty tired! Sitting in double-decker buses was some of the best experiences, haha ^^

St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel was beautiful.

So was this chandelier at Camden Market!

And we found Platform 9 3/4! <3

London is really overwhelming, but not quite how I expected.

I already have small symptoms of anxiety, and in the big crowds in London, not to mention the halls and lifts at the metros, it only got worse. There were SO many people! There are over 3 million more people just in London than in the whole of Norway! And that is not including the tourists :o And there were endless amounts of clothes and 'rubbish' in stores as big as villages! I am already scared of overpopulation and overconsumption in this world, and honestly, now I'm horrified. Watching, and partially participating in a nasty shopping orgie, actually made me flinch and tremble several times. I did buy new clothes, and I must admit I am ashamed of myself... 

One of the places I spent money, was at the Camden Market. Here we met some familiar characters from Lewis Carroll's most beloved literary work :D.

'Everyone' has told me to go to Camden Market and I looked soo much forward to it, but it was not what I had expected it to be like at all either. It was indeed full of different stuff, quite a lot of nice stuff too, but it was too much of the same everywhere - and it was mostly bad quality products. I don't know why, but I had imagined it to be a lot more secondhand and thrifted treasures there... </3

It was nice to escape the stress, noices and crowds on a long and lovely walk in Kensington Gardens :)

One of the things I really like about London is that there are a lot of big trees there! Not only in the parks, but just about anywhere :)

There were so many squirrels, and I squeed a lot! :D

We walked along to find Princess Diana's Memorial Fountain, where we bathed our sore feet, and it felt soo good! It was really magical :)

Then we found the Peter Pan statue, and I squeed a little more :)

I got a beautiful shot of Queen Victoria outside Kensington Palace :)

The Elfin Oak was so cute! :)

Time flies, and suddenly we were back in Norway :)

We only stayed until sunday so we didn't get to do as much as we wanted, but Kate Bush was magical I am probably going back some time next year, hopefully with someone I have more common interests with :)

- Have you been to London? :)

~ Celebrating 100 entries with Q&A ~

This is my 100th blog entry,
and in that context I decided to challenge myself by challenging you.

I am inviting YOU, whoever you are, to ask me questions! :D

I have thought about it before, but never dared making an invitation like this in fear of no one asking me anything. :3

So I have to admit that doing this is terrifying! But here we go:

If there is anything you would like to know about me, my blog, my life or anything else, but you've never found the right time to ask, you can do it now :)

I would also like to take the opportunity to ask you, dear readers, what you would like to see more of on this blog, and if you have some constructive criticism.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Last but not least, I want to thank you so much for all the wonderful comments and love you grant me. I truly appreciate it! Bless you <3

~ Mabon, Autumn Equinox 2014 ~

It's my favourite season again, and autumn equinox is here! It's time for celebrating and harvesting the fruits of Earth. I went out to the forest to see what nature might give me, not just objects, but also experiences. I had a relaxing, healing time, and I actually did recieve a few gifts from Mother Earth :) 

Look how strange, and rather disgusting - melted mushrooms!
And they were filled with nasty maggots too :o
*pokes with stick, and runs away in terror*

Look at these tiny strangies! :D

There are so many wonderful treasures in nature, especially now! Maybe there is no specific use for them, but it gives the experience extra magic, and makes it feel special :) I am very grateful, and I wish you all a wonderful night of Mabon!

<3

~ Mushroom hunt ~

I had a wonderful time in the forest today :) Last weekend I really wanted to go out to the forest to hunt mushrooms, and today I finally did.

I don't have the knowledge acquired to pick them for food, but I've always appreciated beautiful things! For as long as I can remember I've been utterly fascinated by mushrooms, and I guess I have to write more about some other time :) For now, I'll show you some of the foresty treasures I've seen today :)

Half a fairy ring right outside my house! :D

Very strange mushroom :o

A beautiful fly agaric :) It was more red than in the photo.

The light was beautiful!

Creature :p

Tall ones.

Tiny ones.

Big ones.

- Have you been out hunting mushrooms?
Do you recognize or know the name of any of them? :)

~ Outlander ~

I recently started watching the new series Outlander, and I'm in love! 

It's full of happy, scottish music, the amazing scottish highlands, woman in dresses, men in kilts, pagan traditions and time travel! :D

Claire looks like such a fairy, and Jamie is the dream man. And with the beautiful costumes it is just the perfect series for me :)

Now all I want to do is dress in knits and plaid of greys, blues and browns, and go out to the forest to do witchy stuff, like dance and gather herbs and mushrooms :3

- Have you seen it? :)

~ Gjallarstadir vikingmarked 2014 ~

This weekend I went to Gjallarstadir vikingmarked :) It is a nice and intimate little festival, but at the same time it's surprisingly big! It is the last historical festival of the year, and you can clearly see that the autumn has come upon us :)

The weather and temperatures are still summer-y, and I am so happy my favourite season has arrived :) 

- Did you do anything interesting this weekend? :)

~ Vegan carrot cake ~

For the Green Festival last weekend, I made a delicious vegan carrot cake :D I don't really have any cooking or baking skills, but this summer I've practised a little and made this carrot cake three times, so now I'm getting the hang of it ;) This photo is from the second time, when I attended Frøydis' birthday :)

The recipe is based on this one from Vegetarbloggen.

Ingredients

1 dl flaxseed
2 dl water
3 carrots or more
2 dl walnuts
2,5 dl sugar, sukrin or similar
1, 5 dl canola oil
1 table spoon of lemonjuice
1 tea spoon of vanillapowder, -extract or similar
3 dl flour
2 tea spoons of baking powder
2 tea spoons of cinnamon
1/2 tea spoon of salt

Preheat the owen at 180 degrees. Add the water to the flaxseeds. Cut the walnuts in a little food processor. Mix all the dry ingrediens together.  Cut the flaxseed mix in a little food processor. Add all the wet ingrediens to the flaxseed mix. Add the dry mix to the wet mix. Peel and grate the carrots and add to the mix. Put greaseproof paper in a cake tin mold, and pour the mix into it. Bake for about 45 minutes. Cool before you add the icing and some grated carrots, and tadaa :D 

I havent yet found the perfect icing, but I've experienced with tofu, soygurt, vanilla powder, lemonjuice and powdered sugar. Maybe a cashew cream would be perfect? I dare you to experiment yourself :D

- What is your favourite cake? :)

~ Green Festival, Hellviktangen 2014 ~

Last weekend I went to the second annual Green Festival at Hellviktangen, arranged by the Norwegian Green Party. I went with the Norwegian Vegan Society, and I had made carrot cake for the occation. :D It was great success, and in the end of the day, we were sold out of all our cakes, and we had got seven new members!

Can you see my carrot cake? ;)

Ingrid performed some of her lovely songs <3 (The Mermaid is my favourite :)

- Have you been to a green festival of some sort? :)
