Take control over your Instagram feed

Hi guys! Sorry, I haven’t posted for a couple of weeks, I’ve been drowning in work and my schedule suddenly just blew up. But I’m back now!

 

Let’s get deep for a minute. We are all living in an Instagram world, like it or not. I think the world of social media, specifically Instagram comes with a lot of good and a lot of bad things. We all know all the good stuff, but when it comes to the bad we tend to skip that part. We have both the pressure to keep up and to be perfect. Instagram is here for us to show of our world as we want people to see it. We rarely share the bad and the ugly and instead, we share the glory our lives have to offer. I think that life is 50% awesome and 50% just ordinary days. However, on social media, we easily make it out to be 100% of perfect days, food, drinks, and great skin.

 

But enough about that. I wanted to share with you guys, regardless of what you’re posting about, how to build the perfect feed. There goes «perfect» again. «Perfect» has many faces. What I’m talking about now is how to maybe make things a little bit easier for you guys, and also make it possible to visualize how your feed is going to look.

 

 

I love productivity and apps that make my life just a tiny bit easier. None of us need more stress in our lives – and especially not from social media.

 

The UMUM app is awesome, I love it! I use it a lot for work, to both schedule and plan our Instagram posts. It helps me choose the right pictures for our feed, and it gives me a visual overview that helps me when shooting pictures to ensure location, lighting and colors are perfect!

Friends. Sun. Rosé. What more can you ask for?

 

I spent a lot of time with friends and family this summer, that’s precisely how summer is supposed to be. (Sounded really grown up there, huh?)

 

My grandparents have this amazing place by a lake only a couple of minutes from my house. I’ve spent so much time there ever since I was a baby. It’s fair to say that it is one of my absolute favorite places in the entire world, and I have traveled a bit. There’s no place like home (or your family’s summer cabin.)

 

We had company from some of our good friends, Thea and Christian this time. Let me put it this way; there was lots of sun and lots of rosé.

 



Best summer in years

 

Want me to tell you a fun fact? Well, it’s not really that fun, but at least it’s a fact. Norwegian summers are really unreliable, it could give you wind, wind, wind and gray weather, but you can also be really lucky! This summer is the best Norwegian summer in years. Let me put it this way; 30 °C some places. Now it’s definitely the time to stay home, for us Norwegians at least.

 

I want to provide you with my vacation recommendation for Norway. If you’re visiting Norway either as a foreign tourist or as a tourist in your own country, of course the fjords and our capital Oslo are great choices. Still, my belief is that these map points are must see places though, and not necessarily the nicest summer places to visit. Instead let’s do the Norwegian summer cities this year. Don’t forget our beautiful coastline.

 

That’s summer bliss.

 



New and blonder me, more fun?

As I’m writing this post, my first post on my new blog, I’m actually back to my natural hair color again. Change happens fast. Status, still blond, just not that blonde.

 

 

I guess everyone goes through stages where you feel like you want to reinvent yourself or stages of needing something new. Let me put it this way, super blonde is definitely more fun until you find excuses as to why it’s better to be your original self.

 

This is not a deep blog post about how my blonde or super blonde hair changed my life. It didn’t. (Is it allowed with a lol emoji? I’ll try to resist using emojis. OCD.) Haha. (Okay, haha didn’t quite do it as well as emojis does.)

 

My life the past years have been either stuck in an office, or at home stuck in my home office, or at work, stuck with all the mess from my office in a large bag. That’s not a bad thing, and I’m actually super lucky with a lot of things happening every day and at the end of the day, I do what I love. Sometimes, it’s just a lot and you need some variation. So then this blog thing happened again. You see, I used to blog a lot, about everything and nothing. Now I’m sure a LOL is in order. Why did I stop blogging? The large bag with all the mess from my home office got in the way.

 

I have decided one thing. I can do it all! I love this creative platform that is your own. A place where I can share a bit more than on Instagram. A place where I can be even more creative on my own terms, creating stories, videos and try to inspire others.

 

This new place of mine is a site where I will share my travels, not so much every day life but more my favorite shopping spots, life hacks, and favorite places.

 

I promise I’ll keep it up this time! Are you in?
