Welcome to Mali - My Universe!... A blogger/vlogger from Norway.
I will change the photos. These are test photos!
There are no rules! I´m not following the mainstream!
I love colors! It`s almost psychedelic at times!
More to come!

I got my swag on!



It`s never too late to...
This is a person with real swag.

Just be yourself. If I can do it - so can you!

Did I ever care about other people`s opinion?
Hell to the no. Is that an option?
Here I am on the stage in my fantasy-word again...like so many times before...
The T-pain effect is out of control. But the T-pain - effect must be brought back, it`s about TIME!
It ended on a wrong "note" though.WHO CARES!! As long as I CARE! It should be more about you and less about what other people think.This sounds like shit to a lot of people. (To everybody, actually, But hey! Maybe THAT`S ECACTLY my thing...(ok, you can try to make this sh*t yourself and see how long you`re gonna last trying to figure out the T-pain effect (I made this shit in less than an hour...just saying.)
In the end you only have yourself.

February favorites...


Welcome back to another blog post.

I have a category called "Mali loves..." where the idea was to talk about stuff/items that I love.  A lot of people talk about all the crap they love as monthly favorites. And then they show and tell. I have no shampoo or favorite...dildo to show you (Sorry! I am more on the Tech - side.) Here are my February favorites:

1. Twitter. Yes! I am on twitter every day now and my following is like 2000000...200 and something but I don`t really care about numbers. ( I only care about the fabulous numbers in my bank account.) I just like Twitter because not a lot of idiots hang out there...and I just can`t deal with idiots. (Like Donald Trump is not an idiot.)

Me: https://twitter.com/MalisUniverse

2. Soundcloud. This is the best place for underground music. Not so famous yet - musician. Not so famous EVER - musician, but in my opinion; they make the best music. They are not slaves of the music industry. Here we can listen to music created by people like you and me. Be your own boss!

The kind of music that I listen to and use as vlog - music. Happy, go lucky - kind of music. (Swedish people rule.):



3. Sony Vegas Pro. I am now stuck with a Windows PC and I 95% hate this situation. The 5% is just the fact that I NEED it. I need SOMETHING! Why I do not have my Mac right now is a whole different story, a pretty long one. I don`t have the time nor the energy to talk about that right now. It takes a lot of energy and efford to talk about not having a Mac. It is a sad situation and my soul just needs time to heal. (It is not going to last very long, though. A PC, to me, is always a cry for help during desperate times.) Now, let me talk about this Windows software that I CAN APPRECIATE.

Sony Vegas is simple, yet advanced enough to call it an editing software. Unlike MANY other "freebies"out there (that you even have to buy (with a closer look) you don`t always realize that it also has that annoying watermark when you export the video.) Actually, Vegas is pretty good.
I have used Adobe Premiere and it does NOT do the job any better. It is heavy, confusing, "advanced" without being advanced. The 100 + control panels that you have to navigate through makes it really advanced-looking and confusing to work with. I uninstalled Premiere within 1 hour, just looking at the software. I have used it in the past, but I din`t remember how bad it was. Last time I used it was in my Windows-days. Windows, popups and virus-days. I didn`t know any better back then. I have evolved now (So sad to see that windows has not evolved.) But Vegas I can appreciate. It has only a few simple control panels and you just kinda "drag and drop" effects and plugins on to the timeline. And an outdated version of the software works perfectly fine too (like mine. After a few google-clicks I landed on version 13. 13 is a great number. Nothing like Friday the 13th). Can`t believe I am saying this about a Windows software! I usually use Final Cut Pro (Apple.)

Here I am using it for the very first time:
How I look is a completely different story. I do not have the time nor the....aahh!

I will blog every day AND a podcast from Christmas!


I always say this; I will say it again. I will blog every day. Every freaking day! Every DAMN day! It always turns out to be a big, fat LIE! But like I ALSO say all the time "I will TRY this time!"


You see the enthusiasm in my eyes. I love to create. Ever since I was a child I wanted to be in front of the camera (and behind it. Actually; I want to be inside the camera!) People said to me "Get a real job!". I`m like...uh? job? Wash the floors in the supermarked? To earn som bucks? I did that a few years. It was sadder than a Norwegian TV program about a cruise ship in the fjords, minute by minute. (Don`t remember the title of the program. It was just very long and minute by minute just nothing really happened, just fjords...well, some people are into that also.) If it is boring I simply don`t do it. Just like Grumpy Cat used to say (Grumpy Cat died, by the way! Had some kind of disease at the age of 7.) "I tried that once - hated it".Well, I`m from Norway so...(I will not say anything more about this subject in case somebody gets offended.) They have solutions and options for people like me there. Enough said about that! I am more the vlogger/blogger - type anyway. So I am pretty satisfied just waking up every day doing what I love - for the rest of my life. Some things in life are the way they are for a reason. It is always because you somehow created it yourself. Even though things could have been a little different, I have to be proud of my own design. But I am going to edit my own design, one day at a time. Like I have already edited my design for the past 10 years, ever since I realized that my life is actually a design. Get it if you can!

Now over to something else...

Who doesn`t want to hear a podcast that should have been posted a month ago? Who wants to go back to Christmas in late January? (Me, me, me! - NOT!) Well, here is my December-podcast. I forgot to post it during Christmas. I was too busy doing un-Christmassy things.


It is in Norwegian, though. (If you do not understand Norwegian. I do expect to get some new international readers / fans eventually! But a song in the end is in English. It is weird. (With super-weird dance moves.) You may want to jump to that part!

I never blog anymore (that`s gotta change!)...

Hi, how are ya?


Welcome BACCCK to my blog! I just tried a Jeffree Star - opening. He just broke up with his boyfriend. (His boyfriend wasn`t into men after all? That was my nr 1 thought.) I followed Jeffree back in the day when he made his super-weird underground-electronica-music with really BAD lyrics (I`m telling you; BAD!) But the sound is very...me. Believe it or not, I do like this sound...


But after he blew up as a make up guru (he could never have blown up with these kinds of lyrics anyway! So I get it.) I lost interest. I have no interest in make up. But I sometimes watch his videos just to see what he`s up to. He does have an over the top - style/personality. Who else do I follow? I follow ASMR - artists (Look up "Asmr", I don`t have the time or energy to explain this right now), Tarot-readers and my favorite vloggers like Casey Neistat. But I want to stop watching others and rather create something. Nr 1 goal since FOREVER!

I almost never blog anymore. I counted how many blog posts I wrote in 2019 and it was like 5! So I can not call myself a blogger. I CAN NOT call myself a vlogger either. I made like 2 vlogs last year! I posted them on YouTube (not here) and it was just as weird as usual...

If you are super-interested; here it is (and yes indeed, I talk in English, since I want to be an INTERNATIONAL "superstar", but I guess I`m just super-weird...super weird and I can`t help myself. And the self-help-books didn`t have a strategy to help me either...so I gotta be proud of it ;-) :



From one of my two channels, called The Mali Show

What else do I want to say before I sign out?


Yes! new year`s resolutions for the revolutionary year of 2020:

Nr 1: Blog more, vlog more, become more selfish and arrogant! (YES! I know it sounds bad! But sometimes it can be a good thing.) Take more pictures of myself, like "professionally", with the DSLR camera in selfie mode...if I can manage to do so. This time I have a tripod and I do not have to use four books from the selfhelp section as a tripod. I am my own photograph, my own judge...and my own jury (This actually sounds worse and worse! :-O) Dreams should sound BAD, they should even scare you, if it ain`t scary enough it is not a dream (stolen from a quote, but the quote was beautyfully written, mine just sounded desperate. Not far from the reality, that is my life, you may say.)

Nr 2:  Learn to drink coffee without sugar in it!

Nr 3: Try to wear a red lipstick sometimes.

Social media kills (my) creativity!


So that is the reason why I am on a long break from it. I do NOT see the point in looking at other people`s lives. What about creating a life for yourself? I am not huge on social media, and that`s not a goal that I`m aiming for. I just want to create. That is NOT too much to ask the universe for. "How can I serve you today?"

What about creating your dream life? Your dream world. Stop living inside your little bubble. Get out of the bubble! The dream is outside of the bubble. A dream is reachable. When you reach. The only difference between realizing a dream and not realizing a dream is that "doing"-part. DO IT!
Do not procrastinate any longer! I did that for many years....(*sitting right now while typing this with my feet on the table and sipping on that hot beverage with a straw*.) But I finally got it! I finally GOT IT!
Just added a random photo from my photo library. I don`t always look this good, though! #irony

Now, let me talk a little bit about "What I am going to do" while procrastinating a little more;
I will return with more blog-worthy content in the future. Starting to actually DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT will be the game-changer for me.

The thing is; CREATE something before you share it with the world! To be honest; I do not want to read about your dinner-situation, and how you ate that steak, or your boyfriend-situation. I can`t count how many times I have clicked away!

I crave real content. And real content takes time. And you procrastinate in the meanwhile. If you`re not willing to put in the work and time needed, you will never get there.

Procrastination when it comes to the real deal. The deal of your lifetime. Your main goal in life, will never take you far in this game. Like I said; the only difference between sitting on our butts and fulfilling our heart`s desires is that "doing"- part. I always wanted to create something FAST. Fast, but not great content at all. This has always been my biggest mistake! 

Yes, procrastination is my new favorite word. It is a process to get it out of my system for good.

Of course I`m going to write whatever I want!


We live in a free world. At least I do. Because I simply decided to. Freedom is a state of the mind. (Ain`t nobody gonna stop me! *singing with soulful church voice*) So I decided to re-publish all of my old blog posts again. (Oh, no she didn`t!) I took a break from blogging. I didn`t feel my old blogging style. Which is understandable; we all need change, we all want to evolve. But that does not mean that you should just delete everything. If you don`t learn from the past, you cannot avoid making mistakes in the future. So, I decided to keep my internet-past so that I can look back and say "I did my best! But now I rise like a Phoenix!"

What do I really mean by that? Well...do I have to say more?...


So, I am BACK! 

My content from now on is going to be more about: Nature (let nature take it`s course, honey! Okay, that was a joke!)

Minimalism. We have too much crap. We collect too much and we become hoarders AND prisoners in our own lives.

And of course...

"Mali`s Food channel" - watch Mali do Mukbangs 24/7!  - NOT!

In the meanwhile I will be blowing dust off of my camera. I have not touched a camera in 6 months.
The struggle is REAL! But we have to continue doing what we are supposed to be doing in this life time. Without complaining so much. There is only one you and only YOU can do what you came here to do.

Here is my Norwegian radio channel, and today`s episode (I truly believe that I am doing a good job escaping from my weird internet-past with this podcast - NOT!)...



And since English speaking fans all over the world (#irony) don`t understand my Norwegian podcast, here`s a video just to give you an idea. (I don`t blame you if you want to skip this video. I made it as cringe worthy as possible)...



But at least I was insanely happy while creating it. All creators know how it feels; to be completely trapped inside your inner world. "Like no-one`s watching".
But now I`m writing a letter to my mother; telling her that I have changed. "Dear mom, I am now that average 36 year old woman that you`ve wanted me to be all this time. I just started to read that gardening book you gave me last Christmas". Because we all creators MUST listen to that inner voice telling us to quit doing what we love the most. Because society will never understand us, that`s why.



Okay, that was a joke. But If you like my sense of humor; the "What the h*ll is going on here?" - feeling - be sure to return to my page! Next time won´t be any different!

You have to feel it!

Due to my own privacy I have unpublished my old blog posts. Why do I choose to put it that way?
Well, I just want people to see me for WHO I AM! My older projects, videos etc. represented a time when I just created to create. And some of it I like, even though most of it doesn´t represent the person that I feel that I am  - inside, anymore. BUT the posts still exist! (In my unpublished posts - folder) I just want to make better content in the future. Right now I am working on it. I don`t feel the old style that I used to have anymore. And because of privacy (I don´t want people to think that this is my blogging-style when I want to evolve from that old style.) Can you relate? Sometimes we just want to evolve.


I know I have said this over and over again ; I will become better at this! I will change! But to do so you have to FEEL the change coming. You have to really FEEL IT! It is something that happens with time. I know this sounds like it is some serious topic, to be a blogger, and many people laugh at bloggers. Laugh at creative people, people with an idea, because they don´t have an idea themselves. I use blogs as a tool to share. It is a tool. For me it has been the best tool. I have successfully made people feel ashamed! (I`m so sorry, I just had to put that in. I guess my blogging-style isn`t changing after all! lol) Ashamed like; What the h*ll is wrong with this person? She is acting like she is 15 years old. We all know she is in her mid-thirties! With all my weird videos that are supposed to be humor videos. But some people just don`t get the humor. Some people may think that just to have a humor like mine says a lot about a person. But it could ALSO say a lot about how creative and fun this person really is. It could ALSO inspire other women in their mid-thirties who have a unfulfilling lifestyle. Because there is no age, really. Age is just a number. WHY do we all assume that women in their mid-thirties are supposed to do chores, buy a gardening book and work in the garden? We are human and we come in all forms and shapes, also when it comes to personalities. Perhaps gardening work isn`t why I came to this planet earth, but I have to tell you guys; I can do that TOO! In fact; you would LOVE to SEE MY garden! (If I decided to plant some seeds. My red roses would take over the whole freaking area. Trust me!) Because there`s NO limit to what you can do in your life.

BUT you have to feel it.

Me and my first drone!


Hi, I just came here to document me and my first drone. Me and Dji Spark. Love at first sight...







The connection is REAL. But WHY have I not flown the drone yet?
 It is COLD outside! I will use it a lot during spring / summer.

Here is some music for you...

Mali loves headphones!


Yes, that`s right! I am into the really huge ones. And I feel stupid whenever I wear the smaller sizes on the top of my head. It is a sign of lower intelligence! Okay, I`m just kidding! But it IS a sign of weakness. Because the sound is weak. In this blog category I write about what I love because that is what the category is called. "Mali Loves..." Like I am "somebody". Somebody that you should FOLLOW! (Click! Click! Click! on all the social media buttons in the upper right corner and become freaking hypnotized!) Okay, I am going to relax now...and tell you about some of the objects that I love. And yes, the bossa nova song that I made this Christmas is on autoplay. I am completely aware of that. Bossa nova is also one of my favorite things. I especially love to play this genre of music when I do my live streams. Facebook live stream is also a favorite hobby. (Do I need a life? Well, honey...just read this article and when you`re finished, we`ll discuss who needs a life? You or me? Just sayin`!)

(Instagram photo taken with my mobile camera and edited in Photoshop.)




But Christmas is too much for me, I have to be honest with you....




I pretend that it is summer all year! I LOVE to have a HOT Christmas! This year and EVERY YEAR, baby! ;-)

Did I have more to say this time? I don`t think so. Maybe I will come back for more soon!

So, until we "meet" again. Like two energies just merging together as one....

Thank you for being a tourist passing through Mali`s Universe. Thank you for being a witness of all the stories going on inside my mind. Simultaneously! ;-)



Now, let`s go back to the question; do I need to get a life? Get my sh*t together? What if I told you that I AM THE SH*T!?? And that I am INDEED LIVING! I have no more questions. I am just going to end this awesome blog post today -  with these famous words...

Mali Loves: Big dreamers



Welcome to the category that I don`t know what to do about - other than telling you what I LOVE.
(Rather than telling you what I hate because as we all know; there is too much hate in this world.)

For a very long period I was very uninspired. I was NOT creative and I actually almost felt like I hit rock bottom. WHY? Because creativity and inspiration comes in waves. Sometimes the wave is GONE. And out of the blue it suddenly comes back. And sometimes when it hits you, it hits you hard and FAST. Like a tsunami. But I don`t really get so distracted from everyday issues in life because my mind operates as a blank canvas, so that I can create something on it. Even if I went through some difficult times, I just always knew that it was a phase. I am not saying that I always wake up with a smile on my face. What I am saying is; I always wake up with a mindset / an operative system that has a screen with a popup window on it that says: "What are you going to create today?". I have never in my life (not even as a child, and all the problems that comes with being this way) managed to distance myself from my own dream - which is to one day to live a life of total BLISS - doing what I love EVERY DAY - for the rest of my life. Some people may think: "She wants to be a stubborn kid for the rest of her life!". But I say : "Oh yes, if that is what I want, then that is what I want. (It is a good thing to know what you want!) And it would be a lot easier that way. "I am just going to lay on this couch right here! Bring me pizza, woncha? Let`s film a Mukbang video together!" We could (whoever you are, and that would be so much fun, trust me!), but we all came here with a higher purpose in life. And by only laying on that couch "Mukbanging" for our lives we would not even be TRYING to live a life of our highest potential. Not only would you underestimate who you really are as a soul in this life, you would also get really overweight. But I know that there is something called "Feeders". They believe that their highest potential in their lives is to feed their woman or their man into becoming really obese. I always feel like you should support ANY DREAM. As long as you are not hurting yourself or others.

Am I the only one who wants go to Burger King right now? (There is one across from where I live. (Okay, I am sidetracking myself, I am so sorry!)

People may say: "You`re only a dreamer!" But I say...


 So what else have we learned today?


   Mali loves to photoshop herself into motivational photos. To make you feel better about your life (or worse!)

 ✩  Mali loves this modern term called "Mukbang" and she also does believe SHE will NEVER become overweighed because of it. (Just because you will!) Because her higher self told her so.

 ✩  Mali loves to support ANY DREAM, as long as we don`t interfere in someone else`s dream. (This is a good one! If you interfere with my dream it`s over for you! And the whole point of this blog post! Okay, I`m kinda half-kidding here - not. I just don`t like interference. Do you?)

 ✩  Mali loves to talk about her self as a third person. (And repeats her name 100 times per day!) And that is annoying to the reader. Mali is going to stop doing that in future blog posts.


Thank you for being a tourist passing through Mali`s Universe. Thank you for being a witness of all the stories going on inside my mind. Simultaneously! ;-)

To risk being seen....



Whenever you feel like giving up, just get back in the saddle. Underneath the scratches there is a beautiful picture. Show everybody your true authentic self. It is scary, I know. But risk being seen anyway! It is worth it in the end. But I do not believe in endings. Endings are just the beginning of something new. (Just like the "Death" - card in Tarot.) I decided to create one myself...



"Death" can mean so much. The death of a situation. It is when you thought you had died but came back to life again. Kind of like; "Mu-h-h-h-haaa, you moron! You thought that I wasn`t gonna make it?" So get back in the saddle! The white horse is waiting for you. Or it may be a unicorn. There is no limit inside of your own imagination to what you can do. The only difference between you sitting on you butt all day and living your dream life is the "doing" - part. Which is the hardest part. To get where you want to be in life you have to go through a healing phase or a wake-up-call (both simultaneously.) It is never too late to wake up to who you really are. If you are lost and feel like a failure or a victim. The scratches are only on the surface. Your soul always wants to push it`s way through to you. Your ego. Which is fear - based. "What are people going to think?" and "Can I really risk doing this; what I really want in life?" The reason why you are not happy in your life is your own fault. Because you don´t listen to your inner voice, your soul essence, you are hurting. And the day you know this truth, you also know that you can choose to do something about it. And start to listen. It is a risk, you may be ridiculed, but in the end you are the last one laughing.







Thank you for being a tourist passing through Mali`s Universe. Thank you for being a witness of all the stories going on inside my mind. Simultaneously! ;-)

The weird videos just keep coming...


Why do I make these weird videos? The answer is very simple: I can`t help myself. This is who I truly am. Videos that include singing and dancing are my favorite videos. I don`t dance in this video. I wish I did, but I will have to do that in my next video ;-) But I will try to give you a preview of my homemade songs that are not finished yet.

I promised myself to never record a weird video ever again. But that is easier said than done. Once a live streamer - always a live streamer. "The Mali Show". I wish it was easier! I wish I could just be average. But I guess we all have a crazy neighbor, right? Oh, won`t you be my neighbor?! That can actually be a great idea for a future video.

...but now; what you have ALL been waiting for...Right?! The still images:



(Okay, maybe this was NOT how it happened. Or was it? Honestly; I don`t remember. Difficult to remember what happens when the REC - button turns red. It`s like a psychedelic trip (without the mushrooms. I only drink tea! WITHOUT mushrooms!)




Video (Don`t get your hopes up! The photos look way cooler, I know!):


I know my blog is weird, and in the beginning you will ask questions like; "What`s wrong (what the h*ell is wrong) with this person?" Believe me; I`ve asked myself this question so many times! But what I`ve come to realize is; (The more you get used to my blog and the way I do things) you start to wonder, and I`m sorry for bragging here): "What the h*ll are the other bloggers doing?" Because that is the first thing I think about when I enter an average and so-called "normal" blog."Why do they want to blog about their living room?" I don`t get it.  - Unless they have a trippy, psychedelic livingroom with unicorn wallpaper. (I would kinda wanna see that!) Bloggers shouldn`t have to be boring. You should want your readers to leave the blog more confused (in a good way) than they were last time they came to visit. You will get that feeling after visiting my freaky and weird blog. YES! That I know - for a fact! (But don`t worry, you`ll never become more confused than me.) But I try not to be so boring. On my blog a LOT is happening, without actually happening at all. It is just ALL in the energy. But I dislike the word "blog". I actually want to call this area that you have just entered a "universe". A "Website" is also a word that sounds and feels weird to me. (Yes, a word can make you feel things. It feels so technical. Or mechanical.)

Do you know what? I`m just going to leave now and grab a cup of coffee. But thank you for visiting my garden. Inside my universe. I always enjoy some company. ;-)

Thank you for being that lost tourist that I had to save from an accidental mushroom trip. When I TOLD YOU that you shouldn`t eat the red mushrooms. But you did it anyway! You didn`t joke when you told me you were a little freaky...(Okay, that was a joke!) Thank you for being a witness of all the stories going on inside my mind. Simultaneously! ;-)
