The week has come to an end, I´m sorry there has not been that many outfit posts so far on the blog, but Ill get better. The last few weeks has really just been work, work, work & study, study, study. I´m at the end of my trimester, so are working my way through my four finals for this term. I´m also doing my detox until Wednesday, so no big plans the coming days. Anyway, we had a friends birthday Thursday, so it was good to get my head off finals and work for a few hours.


Wearing a beautiful knit that I got second, it is really warm, but stil elegant. So perfect for a late night dinner when it´s still a bit chilli out..

Mentioned earlier this week, I said Jens and I was going to do a detox week, as we thought we did not have any important happenings or events to attend this week, with most of our friends out of town. I got my shopping list and week meny ready on Monday, then; we completely forgot about a friends birthday this Thursday. As he invited us out for a B-day dinner, we had to postpone our detox, starting tomorrow.

The shopping is done, meals for tomorrow is prepped and I´m ready for a fresh week, but first we will enjoy a few glasses of red tonight.

The Detox plan:

what we can eat/drink:

All vegetables and fruits – fresh uncocked

Beans, Lentils and chick peas

water and herbal teas

2 tablespoons of coconut yoghurt every day

Free range organic eggs – cooked is fine

herbs and spices (himalaya salt in moderation)

nuts and seeds unsalted


The detox plan I used for inspiration is here: http://www.bodyandsoul.com.au/diet/diets/the-7-day-detox-plan/news-story/cfb1850be6010553eba661bb9cbcb938

We are making our own twist to it, swapping the yoghurt for coconut yoghurt to avoid any dairy. Second Jens is not having any meat (I dont eat meat), making it as green as possible.

Can´t belive it is already 4 weeks since I left my family at the airport in Singapore.. Back in Sydney and life is back to normal, studies, work, friends everyday life, also a little more grateful for having a family that does not make me feel bad for my decisions.

 Over the past three years, I´ve really come to  appreciate little things, I have to make myself happy before I can make anyone around me happy, and you should not follow the road that you know is expected of you. My road was supposedly; Work, figure out what you wanna study, study, go on a little backpacker trip, cause travel is good for you, come back and live a normal life, work, buy a house, get married..

I´m happy I chose the unexpected road.

– Ginger, apple cider vinegar and lemon is my “secret weapon” to a perfect start of every day –

It is Monday again, yoga is done, uni assessments are being worked on and Jens suggested we´d do a detox week. As I´m usually the big health freak in this relationship, I thought it would be a great idea, and I have not done one in to long. As we both live very healthy already, we decided to do one that is not based on juicing, but a combo of juice/smoothies – raw salads/vegetables and nuts/seeds. No alcohol during the seven days detox is probably going to be the hardest for us, as we both love red wine on a weekly basis.. We are starting on Wednesday, have a few things in the fridge we need to finish first. In the meantime I´m enjoying my lemon-ginger kick with some inspirational reading (sorry book is in Norwegian) The book is a great inspiration, it gives you positive energy, makes you appreciate every little thing and keep you working towards what you want.

– Stay positive –

I´m a believer in clean living, especially when it comes to what we put in and on our body. The outside of our bodies are just as important as the inside, we should therefore always keep that in mind when buying health and beauty products. I rarely buy any beauty or health products, cause I just really dont like spending time in front of the mirror, I prefer as natural as possible and doing it myself. I think the more natural the better, and if you combine healthy food and “healthy” skincare you have already come a long way. So I wanna share my simple recipe for a shower body scrub; It is cheap, it is natural and 100% real and no extra packing when you do it yourself. It is made up of three ingredients, ingredients that I always have in the house. The scrub is for all over the body, even the face – as long as you are gentle while scrubbing your face.

Benefits:

Coconut oil is really moisturizing for your skin, gives glow and no scary additives. Himalaya salt is full of minerals and it detoxifies your skin. Matcha is full of antioxidants and it is anti-ageing.

– organic coconut oil – organic  pink himalaya salt  – organic real matcha  –

– You will only need 1-2 teaspoons of the matcha –

– You want the paste to be dry, so make sure you go slow when adding the coconut oil –

We are starting to have spring arrive in store; at work. And there are so many pretty things, cant wait to walk around with bare legs again. As for those who belive Australia is warm all year round, it is depending on where you are. Sydney – is not. winter is from June – end of August and it dips bellow 10 degrees, even from May you would not really wear summer clothing anymore. So it is not bare leg weather these days. Hopefully mid September I´ll be back on the beach.

– Have a fabulous weekend everyone, Ill be working and dreaming of spring to arrive –

I usually never wear pants or jeans, as I just dont find it comfortable and because I just love dressing feminine. However if I do buy pants, it is rarely denim jeans and they need to be a bit different to get my attention, I finally found a pair I just love. They make you look super good, they are so comfortable, not to expensive, barely stretch and easy to wash.

The brand is called refuge denim, and it is an Australian label.

Almost three weeks have gone by – I have simply not found energy or time to do my weekly exercise, always starting my Monday mornings doing yoga down by the beach. I got home after work yesterday, got onto finishing an assessment that was due, uploaded it 1155 pm and told myself ; “Tomorrow you get your lazy but out of bed early and get back on it.”

 – Feeling grateful for being able to take in all this beauty –
