Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Yesterday we were the happy winners of the award Newcomer of the Year 2014.
How ironic isn’t it that the newcomers had to open the show? We were nothing but a big blur when accepting our prize. Our hearts thumped, and the nervousness made our legs jelly. Tsutsumi was so shy she hid behind the bouquet the entire speech while I concentrated on not to fall while walking. We were caught in a so called blackout, cause it was so surreal. However, we managed to thank our readers something we find very important!
Newcomer of the Year is a prize with a bit of everything so in many ways was this an incredible price which we are very grateful to receive. One year of blogging have given us many memories and there are so much more to experience!

The jury speech to the lucky winners was really sweet! Here is the translated version;
“Newcomer of the Year is the new shooting star to the blog heaven and is the blog that despite starting in 2013 first got it’s big debut last year. This blog is also nominated for Instagram of the Year – the place where it all started. With inspiring images, international appeal and large dimples – the chances are big that these sweet sisters will characterise the blog world in the future.”
Thank you so much to all of you who voted and rooted for us. You truly motivate us to be better! Thank you Vixen for awarding us and for the lovely statuette. Thank you Khiet from Nikita for doing our hair for the awards. Thank you Chioma for the original hashtag #teamalexogtsu and being a proud lil mama. Thank You!
Two weeks ago, Alexandra and I got invited to Gaute’s birthday held at his restaurant Piscoteket. We have never visited the newly opened restaurant before, so we looked very forward to try out the food & check out the place. We were in great company during our stay and enjoyed ourselves to the max!
If you don’t recall the name, it’s the same restaurant that was in charge of the Alexander Wang x HM dinner. The three-course dinner was on point with a mixture of authentic Peruvian and Asian flavors. All in all, a very cool and intimate evening with lots of laughs and great food!

Saturday was packed starting off with breakfast, several lectures about social media and blog marketing, how to set goals and gain success. It really gave us a motivation boost which we really needed! After that we went onto zip lining while the other groups went snow scooting and dog sledding. When playing Tarzan lookalike was over, we went over to the spa to relax and get comfortable in the steam bath. The resort is a perfect place for some time off and we recommend a visit to this place if you’re visiting Geilo.
Then it was duked for pre-drinks, fabulous dinner entertainment and party to 5 in the morning!
