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!

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!

Tourist in Barcelona

Good morning guys! The two last days I have been doing a lot of tourists stuff with my parents here in Barcelona. It has been a lot of fun and I’m so glad that I went to these places, because these places is so beautiful I have no words! I’m a little nerd when it comes to old history in Europe I have to admit, haha! I love old architecture, it’s just something so unique about it!

Palau de la musica catalan

Palau de la musica is a concert hall in Barcelona designed by the architect Lluis Domènech i Montaner between 1904 and 1908. If you go to Barcelona you should visit this place. The whole building is so beautiful, with a lot of details. They still use this hall to have concerts, and it has been many of the biggest artists in history that has performed on this stage.

Parc Guell

The Park Güell is a public park system composed of gardens and architectonic elements located on Carmel Hill. This parc is so cozy and beautiful! It is a very green parc with some really cool architecture. Also you get a beutiful view over the city. Even if you don’t want to pay to enter, the area around the parc is so nice. The perfect place to just go for a walk, listening to birds and enjoying the view. Love this parc!

Tourist bus

We also took a city tour bus. It was really nice. I do recommend you to take one tour too if you come here. I always like to take one of these city tour by bus when I visit big cities. It gives me a good overview of the city I feel. On this trip we did see some miraculous buildings.

I hope you all are had a great week, and yes, finally it’s Friday! Enjoy!

10 reasons why I love fall

So the summer is over, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t be excited for the following season. Even though I love a warm summer day, being able to just wear a little dress and some sandals, I do somehow really love the fall. I have always done that. Under you find 10 reason why I welcome fall with open arms.

1: The beautiful colors

The colors of the trees, it’s the most beautiful mix of red, orange, green, brown and yellow. A nice sunny autumn day with a blue sky is simply the best.

2: It’s finally sweater weather!

I love a comfy sweater during the colder months. Finding the perfect one for your wardrobe isn’t a problem, the stores has plenty of all types. Right now I have a timeless cashmere sweater on my wish list.

3: Enjoying hot drinks without sweating

One fun fact about me, I’m a huge tea drinker! I love all kinds of teas. And one of my favorite thing is to sit inside enjoying a cup of delicious tea while it’s cold outside.

4: Fall- scented candles

Time to switch the summer smells, with something else. I’m obsessed with candles, it just make a home so much more cozy and personal. Typically fall scents would be vanilla, cinnamon, Chai, pumpkin etc. Honestly I really want a Jo Malone candle, but they definitely are more on the luxurious side.

5. Playing in the leaves 

Being a child again and dancing in the leaves when enjoying a walk with someone you care about. Spending time in nature and appreciate it has for sure a therapeutic effect.

6. Soup season

I love making food, and even more I love enjoying a good meal. In the colder months, I prefer warm food over cold. One of my favorite meals for fall is a warm soup served with some bread. The options of recipes are endless! It’s a soup for all diets and tastes. I personally eat mostly plant based, so I prefer a vegan or vegetarian option. A favorite is sweet potato soup or Thai soup with noddles, yum!

7. Good series back on tv with new seasons!

When the summer is over, finally the new seasons come back on the screen. Honestly, I’m not the biggest tv slave, but one series that I’m obsessed about is Suits. If you havn’t seen it yet, lucky you, I wish I could see it all again for the first time!

8. Flannel PJ’s

Have a nice flannel PJ that you can snuggle in and stay cozy at home is a must!

9. Red wine season

Enjoying a glass (or two, haha) with a good red wine with family, good friends or the person you love, is one of my favorite ways to spend a Saturday night during the fall. It can be together with a great meal or just by it self. Amarone is one of my favorite wines.

10. Closer to Christmas!

When the fall is here we know the Christmas is not so far away. Christmas is that one month during the year with most traditions, and I love it! For me Christmas is a colorful time, well spent with people you love, delicious food, music and following all the traditions. And of course, Christmas shopping!

I hope you found some reason to love fall too.
