Hi guys! I can’t believe its Friday again, times fly by! I hope you all had a great week and I’m sure most of you are excited for this coming weekend. Do you have any fun plans? let me know! They say the weather will be sunny in Bergen these days, so I will take advantage of that for sure. We are not spoiled with sunny weather in this city let me tell you. That’s why I want to do the most out of it when the sun is shinning! Below are some of my plans for this weekend. Maybe it can inspire you.

❤ Go hiking in the sunshine! Breath the fresh air and enjoy the nature. Nature is my happy place for sure!

❤ Enjoy the Friday with friends and tasteful food. And popcorn! I have had this crazy cravings for popcorn for a long time, so tomorrow I will go to the cinema and buy popcorn to take home, haha! The popcorn at the cinema is just so much better than any other popcorn, don’t you think?

❤ Work on my interval running. I got a program from a friend that I now try to manage to get through. I love having goals that I have to push myself to achieve.

❤ On Sunday I will try out a new recipe that I’m excited about. If it becomes a success, I will share it, after all sharing is caring, right?

I wish you all a wonderful weekend, make it a great one!

Give yourself some extra love!

It doesn’t need to be a special day to give your self some extra love! Any day of the week is a good day. Today I will do 3 things to pamper myself a little extra, just because I deserve it. Join me, you deserve it too!

1. Wash your face and put on a sheet mask. I love sheet masks! If it’s a a good one, you will notice a different on your skin.

2. Eat or drink something healthy today. It could be a giant salad for lunch, a green juice or a superfood smoothie (or anything else that you want, as long as it includes greens)!

3. Meditate. Lay down on the floor, close your eyes and just breath in and out slowly for at least 5 minutes. If you find it hard, look for a guided meditation on Youtube, its plenty of them!

Hope this will boost your mood a little extra!

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!

You are a badass

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”

2019, personal growth

20190103_132110

Hi guys! I hope you all had a great new year celebration. I spent the new years eve with my family, so nice since I was away from them all Christmas. So weird to think that we just started a new year! I feel that this is a period that many of us do reflect over our lives, what we have achieved so far, how we feel and so on. For me 2018 was a year were I learned a lot about myself in so many ways, and about friendships and people around me.

I don’t have any specific new year’s resolutions for this year. I choose to focus on the small things I can do every day that will give me a little bit more joy and happiness on a daily basis. I truly believe that if we do small things every day that makes us happy or fill us with positivity, it will make a huge difference in our life.

Under is a list over what I want to do more of or start doing this year to become the best and happiest version of myself!

Getting back on track with my healthy habits: If it’s one thing I’m really interested in it must be health and lifestyle. For me to feel energized, motivated and good about myself, I need to take care of my body from the inside out. When I eat lots of greens, fresh juices, plant based meals and drink enough water, I truly feel a positive difference in my body and mind! I will also get back to a good workout routine. This year I want to mix up my workout with doing a mix of weight lifting, running, hiking, yoga, pilates and dancing. Workout for me should be fun, keep me active and give me a functional body.

Spending more quality time with people that I want to keep in my life: Be aware of who you spend your time with. Sometimes you have to be selfish to “protect” your positivity and your own happiness. Who you surround yourself with will have a huge impact on your energy level. For me it’s important that I can be myself, be honest  and be accepted for who I am. I want to surround myself with people who makes me feel good in their company. Since I spent much time of 2018 away from my home, I will make it a priority to spend more quality time with my beloved ones this year.

 

Be more creative: I always feel good when I’m using my creative side, it fills me with positivity. This includes everything from trying out new recipes in the kitchen or finding new outfits or playing around with new makeup looks. Or maybe try something new as a DIY project, like making some home decoration etc.

Staying organized: This is a must for me to feel my best. I’m one of those persons that loves to have a to do list, and gets very satisfied when I can cross out each thing on that list! I like to keep things around me clean and organized. We just had a huge clean- out of our closet just before new years, and it felt so good, haha!

Self love: Practice self love is so important and can make a huge different in your everyday happiness. Taking care of yourself like you would take care of a person you love. Smile to yourself and tell yourself nice things. Be your own best friend!

This was my list of things that I’m gonna focus on this year to make me the best version of myself. I hope it gave you some thoughts around these things or some inspiration to do more things of what makes you happy.

Good bye 2018

Hi guys! Long time no see. First of all, I hope you all had a magical Christmas with your beloved ones. I haven’t been blogging for a long time, but I decided to do so, so I could brainstorm and decide how I want my blog to be in the future. This will not be an everyday blog about my life, let’s face it, my everyday is not like a Hollywood glamours life with a lot of drama that would keep you interested in knowing everything. My goals with this blog is to spread motivation and inspiration. I will try to update my blog 1 -2 times a week. You will find anything from healthy recipes, training, beauty, fashion or mindfulness. I want this blog to have positive vibes (non existent perfection), that you can find inspiring or even learn new stuff!

Well, let’s do a little update about my last period. So much have been going on. As you might see on the photo I have cut my hair short, like a long bob (after 10 years of having long hair)!! But I’m really happy with it, it feels so nice and fresh! I finished my practice in Barcelona and moved back home to Bergen, finally! But just after one week at home I did pack my stuff again and joined my boyfriend and his family to spend the Holiday in Sweden with them. It have been so nice! Too much food, a lot of candy, wine almost every day, jacuzzi under the stars, family time, relaxing and just enjoying the festive season. The weather was perfect, frozty like a winter wonderland with the most magical sunsets (see the photos).

I can’t believe we are so close to end of this year. Are you ready to leave 2018 behind? Honestly, for me this have been the toughest year in my life in many ways and I feel so ready to put this year behind me. I do have personal goals for the next year to come, like working on my personal development. More on that in a future post.

I want to run this of by wishing you a very happy new year! Enjoy the last days of this year and let’s welcome the new year with open arms, positive mindset and lots of love!

xoxo
