Practice gratitude

Happy Monday people! Today I will share a little mindful practice with you. Remember, that our thoughts will affect how we feel, the brain is so powerful! Some days or period in life will be hard, we will struggle and feel that everything is hopeless! But even on the worst days, it’s ALWAYS something to be grateful for. I have that one rule with myself, that regardless on how my day has been, I always pray to the universe and thank for at least 3 things that I’m grateful for that day. It ca be everything from a feeling blessed with supportive friends, good food or a sunny day, whatever made may day a little better. This is also a good way to reflect and be aware of the good things in your life!

Eco chic

Hi guys! Today I want to talk about a topic that we all know is out there, and that is very important, after all, it effects us all! It’s the environmental problems. Isn’t it sad to see how much damage we have caust our planet by the way we are living our lives? All the plastic that floats all over etc. It is hard for one person to “save the world”, but I truly believe that we all can do just a little bit better by making small changes in the right direction. Here on my blog I want to start shareing some of the more eco-friendly changes I do, and maybe I can inspire you to do the same! It’s not about doing it perfect, but it’s about each of us makeing a small change for the better!

First out is changing my normal makeup remover pads that are packed in plastic bags and only used once, to reusable makeup remover pads in cotton that you can wash in a little cotton bag with your clothes and use again and again. In the long run, you will save money as well. They sell them in some stores , you can check it out here.

If you need a little help to stay more positive and motivated, this book is for you. It’s a self-help book that is easy to read, filled with good stuff to help keep your mindset on track. The Author talks a lot about how your energy level and your way of thinking will affect your everyday life in a positive or negative direction. Here is some sayings from the book that I loved:

“Our thoughts become our words, our words become our beliefs, our beliefs become our actions, our actions become our habits, and our habits become our realities”

“Trust that the Universe loves the crap out of you, kick fear in the face, and head bravely into the unknown”

 “Forgiveness is all about taking care of you, not the person you need to forgive”

The perfect Christmas Calendar for him

Hi my loves! Have you guys started to think about Christmas presents and stuff, or is it just me? Last Christmas I made my boyfriend a Christmas calendar. He really liked it (as far as I know, haha!) Those things takes time to plan, buy and make, so it’s better to start early, right? This year I wont make any, since I’m in Barcelona and wont be home before the middle of December. Sorry my love. But, I want to share with you what I bought last year, so maybe you get some inspiration. It doesn’t need to cost a fortune! I did buy some small thing and some bigger things. After all, its the thoughts behind it that matters, not the price. Whatever fits your budget.

– He’s favorite chocolate or other candy!

– Socks.. we all need them, but we never buy them!

– A small bottle of bubbles (nice to get on the weekends)

– A “present card” with massage by you (of course)! Before this one, give him a massage oil as a gift.

Love this massage oil from Rituals.

– Some clothing, like a nice shirt!

– Plan out something you gonna do together, and write it as a note. For example, Christmas baking or decorating a gingerbread house, so much fun!

– A bottle of wine that you two can share and have a romantic evening with, with some candles and good food. Quality time is so important in a relationship.

– Lottery tickets. What I did was that I decided what he was gonna buy if he won. I had 4 different lottery tickets (one each week), and wrote one destination to travel to on each of them (with a printed photo of the places). sadly we didn’t win anything, hehe.

No doubt where I would have traveled, the Maldives!

– Find a candy bar or a chewing gum packet with a word that you can  use to write a nice little note.

– Get him a new coffee cup with photos of the two of you on it.

– Buy him a very nice and sexy lingerie for yourself and write a little note. Of course he’s gonna love to see you in it (and to take it off later on). Red is always a popular color among most men!

– Beauty products. If your boyfriend doesn’t use moisturizer, it’s a great way to introduce him to it, haha! Or buy him a nice smelling shower gel or  some hair products.

Guarana & Coffee Skin Energising Kit

From The Body shop for men.

– It can also be something as little notes where you tell him something beautiful or things that you promise to do (like cooking, cleaning the house that week etc). It doesn’t need to be things you spend a lot of money on.

Are you gonna make a Christmas calendar this year? I hope these tips gave you some ideas if you are. I can’t wait for December to start, so excited!!
