Hello Everyone! My name is Guro Stuan. I’m a Norwegian currently studying Business Administration at the University of Bath in England. I’m currently living in London, however I’m going on exchange to Tokyo in the fall! I’ll stay there for one semester until I return to England & Bath to finish my degree! After that…who knows?! Nothing is certain, but I’m very interested in the prospect of wedding planning!

One of my New Year’s resolution for 2012 was to start a blog for all of my loved ones across the North Sea. I enjoy traveling, excessive shopping, elderflower pressé, trips to Paris and being with friends and family. If you want to get to know me further have a look at 98 Random Facts About Me.

Life is so short, it should be lived to the fullest every day!

  1. I just wanted to pop by and say I really dig your style!

  2. Hi, I saw your post with the photos and thought you were a model! Gorgeous sense of style…now I want to go shopping at Zara and buy that silvery blazer :). Why study business admin??? Have you ever checked out Looklet.com? I got addicted to the site.

  3. adamleone01 said:

    Nice little urban blog! And great fashion sense! not sure I should be admitting that being a man!

  4. Thank you so much guys! Why I study Business Administration? Simple. How else will I afford all the gorgeous shoes this world has to offer? On top of that, it is actually a bit interesting from time to time! I have never been to looklet.com, will check it out soon! X

    • Hey Guro,

      I admire your style and taste..

      I couldn’t agree more with “How else will I afford all the gorgeous shoes this world has to offer?”..


      -May ART be with you.

    • What do you use your degree for? What do you do for work? If I can ask…

      • Well currently I am still studying. At the moment, as part of my degree, I am doing a placement in London within IMS Health which is the worlds largest consultancy firm for the healthcare and pharmaceutical industry. X

  5. Love your pics – really love the shoes!

  6. your blog is awesome and so is your style : )

  19. Hey Guro, I really like the layout of your blog, the shoes were an excellent choice. 🙂

    Hi Guro! One of my resolutions for 2012 was to start a new blog as well and I hope to draw inspiration from you! I lived in london as well and I miss it so much! Looking forward to seeing for londontown posts!! Besos! NkS

  24. HI Guro. I used to live near Lancaster Road tube when I first lived in London – a long time ago. There are several mews fairly close to Paddington, and I lived in a flat in one of those for a while. Great to be so close to Hyde Park, especially in spring!

  25. Your blog is great, and I have added it to my “follow” list.

  26. I LOVE the shoes!

    Hello Guro Stuan!

    “Life is so short, it should be lived to the fullest every day!”

    Well, yes, for sure. Somehow (and it has taken me forever to realise this) there can be no other way. You have a lovely site and I look forward to perusing through your content; rich and clean. Lovely. Take it easy.

  28. Guro
    Fab blog!
    Your titles are so fun & catchy – love it!
    I have a great friend who lives near Bath, seems like all the cool kids converse around there!


  29. Hi Guro, I like your blog — Ray

  30. Love your style and your blog is really lovely!

  31. Am loving what I see on your blog so far 🙂

  32. Your blog is so up my alley. wish I had all day to shop, dress sharp and visit the hot spots (not that I’m saying you do). You have great taste and you obviously like food that tastes great!

  33. I like your blog!!! 😉

  34. Oh I just love the posts about travel and restaurants in that area – and definitely your sense of style too. Nicely done 🙂

  35. Following!!!! perhaps i can live vicariously through you because i miss London SOOO much! Where abouts are you in this photo above??

  36. I enjoy reading your blog. Your pictures are great!

  37. You should seriously consider using your Bath MBA skills to open a shoe factory 🙂

  38. Guro,
    I must say, you have a very elegant sense of style. Shoes, chocolate, tea, Paris, I love it all.

  39. nativesunphotography said:

    I like your pictures and it is so interesting you live in Norway, I live in Canada.

    • Thank you! However, I don’t live in Norway at the moment. I live in London! But when I am finished with my consultancy placement here (which will be at the end of July) then I will go back to Norway so I can show you what Norway is like. Its fabulous! X

      • nativesunphotography said:

        I like the pictures of other places, I like to see how other people live because I cannot go there. What kind of camera do you use?

      • I use a Canon EOS 400D. I would definitely recommend it, it’s very good if you don’t want a camera which is too big! X

      • nativesunphotography said:

        I use a Olympus E-520. Keep in touch, if you ever in Canada come visit me 🙂

  40. Nice blog you have here.

  41. Hi Guro Stuan,

    Good luck in your studies, and your new ventures in life.

    And so is your blog. 🙂

  43. Hi – i’ve just nominated you for ‘Beautiful Blogger Award’ – it’s posted on my blog. thank you for your lovely blog. x

  45. like you I have an obsession for shoes. And why not – Shoes are like Art – to be enjoyed and wondered. Nice blog thanks.

  46. Just dropped by to say hello. Have been to Bath just once, a life time and a half ago 😆

  47. Love the Louboutins!

  48. Chocolate and Raspberries have always been my favorite. Your take on things is refreshing and original. I even took your Chicago (the Musical) Report and expanded on it on my Word Press website. http://wp.me/pT8Qm-4EK

  49. Wow, you’re an active blogger! I love your blog ❤

  50. Hi Guro! Love your style! Beautiful pictures!

  53. rechellefriend said:

    Beautiful! What a great reason to start a blog 🙂

  54. Love your Chocolates and Raspberries. My 1st post was Cherries, Chocolate and Wine. Have a wonderful day in merry, ole England!

  55. I’m so glad you’re loving my city (NY) which I no longer live in, but will alway be mine. Hope you get to try some of the amazing restaurants. Congrats on the half marathon.

  56. Love those shoes. Cool site.

  57. I like your blog!

  58. i just stopped by to check out your blog and I love it!

  59. Your shoes make me swoon!

  60. Having taken a look at your blog (which is quite lovely) I am curious as to why a beautiful, world-traveling, intelligent, style-setting individual like you would visit the blog of a homespun grandfatherly type like moi, whose universe consists of a 35 foot recreational vehicle in Northern CA and a casita in Baja Sur. But thanks for checking in on me occasionally, and I will be sure to reciprocate. You are easy on this old geezer’s eyes (American slang for “you’re beautiful”). Carry on living life to the fullest and sharing with us.

    Back to what I’m more comfortable in : English!!! Haha.
    I would love to go to New York one day so I’m sure to read your ‘review’ on the city in much detail. But before then I’d loooove to visit the infamous Norwegian fjords. So any posts on the fjords would be hugely appreciated. No pressure 😉

    I noticed you didn’t have many items on interior accessories on your blog, this is what my blog is about. It would be nice to blog communicate when we have similar items.
    Keep up your gorgeous blog site. Pamelaxx

  161. Guro, I just wanted to pop in and thank you. You have been one of the most consistent “likers” of posts on my blog and I wanted to let you know I’ve noticed and appreciate your support. Maybe in another life I could ask you for some fashion sense because you surely have it but as a kitchen-hound living in sub-tropical Florida I spend most of my days in shorts, tank tops and (gasp!) Crocs and socks, lol! 🙂

  162. Hello there!
    Very glad you visited my blog and with a “like” even… I notice your blog very nice, compliments. I think i’ll give a look to your new posts from time to time, hopeful you can rivisit mine too… hugs… tony

  165. Thank you for reading — and liking — something I posted today. I’m honored.

    And congratulations on your recent marathon. I’ve ridden a bike thousands of miles, but I can’t imagine ever even trying to run a marathon.


  166. Aside from the fact that I love your outlook on life, my other favourite thing about your blog is the title… Every time i read it it makes me hungry for some Chocolate and some Rasberries!

    And thanks for liking some of my posts, it’s really weird – but really flattering! – thinking that someone is actually reading it, you know?


  167. Thank you for dropping by my blog and taking time to look around. Thank you for the likes also. 🙂

  171. Hi! Thx for liking my TOMS Giveaway post. My sister lives in Bath! 🙂

  172. Hello! I’m so happy you stopped by my blog, and I am very happy to be inspired by yours. Have a great day!

  173. Most of your outfits are amazing! I wanted to like a few but couldnt locate a button possibly cause I am a newbie and still learning 🙂

  174. Beautiful warm pic and I would like to say that I have problems from today to get into your site and I don’t know why ???

  175. Hi Guro,

    Thanks so much for checking out my blog! You have a great blog and I am super excited to start reading it. I love your style. Great inspiration!!

    Thought I would just tell you a bit about my wedding planning. I did a 6 month internship with a wedding planner a few summers ago and really got thrown into the grunt work of the business. I then actually went back to school for an event management certificate, which helped me to learn so much about all sides of the business. But in all honesty it really came down to meeting the right people. It is all about networking and going out and meeting people. Meet lots of people in the industry is really the best advice I can give you! Let me know if you ever want more advice all about it!

    Can’t wait to keep reading your blog!

    • Hi Jill,

      I hope you are well.

      I was wondering how you went about getting the first wedding planning internship? I am extremely intrigued and interested in the industry. I am currently doing a very good degree within business, however, I am a very creative person so ideally I would like to combine my business with my creative side. If you get what I mean? Have you worked with any companies in London who you think I could potentially ask? Or do you have any contacts in England?

      I appreciate greatly any help you can give me!


      • Hi Guro,
        I understand the wanting to combine the business and creativity. It is so much fun to have a creative outlet and also get paid for it! To get my wedding planning internship, since I live in Denver, I literally found a website that had all the event planners in Denver and started calling them and telling them what I was looking for. I called about 40 different planners and go a few interviews, but ended up interning with the first person I called. It was great experience and will really let you know if the business is for you or not. Unfortunately, I have not worked or don’t know of any companies in England. I have only worked for planners in Colorado. Sorry I am not much help there. Please do let me know if you have more questions about anything!

  176. Greetings, Guru. Thanks for visiting my blog (God’s Healing Plants) and for your support and encouragement. You have a great blog yourself. Blessings.

  177. Hi Guru! Happy news I’m sending some blog awards/nominations you’re way! Hope it’s your kinda thing, enjoy http://girlinafoodfrenzy.com/awards-acccolades-appreciation-in-the-blogosphere/

    Look forward to reading your future posts!

  206. Beautiful lady, lovely hat and pretty dress. Love it.

  207. Hi Guro,

    What an awesome blog you have!!! 🙂

  208. Hey Guro,

    Looking at your posts, an observation and a of couple questions come to mind.

    You have a very distinct stylistic voice. It’s a very skillful dance between sensible, daring, and bold. I’m not really into fashion, but I am an artist and I see artisistic expression in what you do. I was just wondering where it comes from. Is there a particular thing that got you into fashion? Is it just the love? And have you ever thought about being a stylist or designer (if that’s not what you already do)?

    P.S. I’d also be interested to see your take on men’s fashion if the opportunity ever presents itself (and if any of the men in your life are brazen enough to step in front of the camera once they’ve been “Ken-dolled” up). 🙂

    At any rate, great blog! See you in the ‘sphere.’

  209. Hello there,

    Thank you for a lovely comment! To be honest with you there is nothing in particular that got me into fashion. That said, fashion is very important to be as I feel it is the only way I express my creativity. I can’t draw or paint or do anything else creative to save my own life! However, I feel I can at least display a decent fashion sense! I have never thought of being a stylist or a designer and even though I love fashion, a career within the industry has never been appealing to me.

    My take on men’s fashion is very simplistic, but I’ll see if I can’t persuade any of the men in my life to pose! Would be good entertainment for me!

    Have a lovely evening!


  210. I love all the fashion tips and of course the shoes….I nominated you for the versatile blogger award. http://kolpona.com/2012/04/22/passing-the-love-along/
