Enjoy the rest of your holiday beautiful people.

We are flying to Brisbane in a few hours, two nights in Brisbane, then making our way out to an Island called Moreton Island. Moreton is an all sand dune Island, with great snorkelling and outdoor activity opportunities. We can´t wait to get out of the city, enjoy some relaxing, nature, games and good food and drinks. The New Years long weekend is always expensive, so instead of going for a really nice resort / hotel, we are doing something called glamping, glamorous camping. So you are sleeping in a big tent, with your own private bathroom with hot shower, a nice queen size bed, an veranda and just a few meters from the beach. New adventures ahead.

 

 

Hope you are doing something enjoyable over the holidays

Happy holiday´s everyone, hope you are enjoying time with your loved once.

I´m not really fussed about Christmas, especially when I´m in a hot climate, as you do not get any Christmas feeling at all! I do like the idea of spending time together and be generous and kind, all though it should always be a goal to be generous and kind to others, no matter the season or event.

NEW YEARS RESOLUTIONS?

On the other hand I love celebrating the new year, Our tradition is celebrating in the mountains of Norway, with my high school friend group, as we still have a really close and amazing friend group. All though this year Jens & I are missing out, we still have to set some goals for the new year coming. 2017 will bring a lot of changes and challenges, so I know it will be a very interesting year ahead.

MY GOALS

Finish my degree with final work I will be proud of

Manage the move to Norway, especially as my partner is not Norwegian, and do not speak the language yet

Re-adapt to the Norwegian culture and lifestyle and find good work

Keep blogging about a sustainable lifestyle journey

Continue to share, spread and care for the global warming and unethical challenges we are facing, hopefully inspire more people to make changes to their life

What are you looking forward to in the new year?

Happy Friday everyone

If you are after some sweet treats this holiday, that are 100% cruelty free and super delicious, you have to check out this amazing chocolate truffle recipe

I made them the other day, and I just cant´t get enough, a little sweet treat to start the day, that is both healthy, sweet and nutritious? Or for a little boost later in the day, when your body is screaming for some energy.

I´m just making a lovely carrot cake, with a recipe from the same page, make sure to test that one too, if you love carrot cake. Recipe HERE

 

 

 

Hi Lovelies, hope you are doing well?

A few friends at work and I decided to have our own little Christmas Party, not that it feels like Christmas here in summery Sydney at all! But don´t really take the time to go out together, so finally we made it happen.

I think glitter, velvet,  fringes, sparkles and especially sequins, my favourite; is very much allowed around the festive season.

The secret of living well & longer is:

Eat half,

Walk double,

Laugh  triple

And love without measure


My lovely co-workers

“A world where people only look after themselves is not a good world to live in”

If everyone would just care a little bit more and give a little bit more, we would come a long way. I believe that my effort in supporting others does make a difference, maybe you can´t see it right away, but its worth it, every little effort you make.


I want to share with you the brand I´m an ambassador for, as I think their message is worthy of sharing, a proof that you can run a business that does good.

I met Kathy, the founder of Moeloco flipflops two years back, just when she started up her business, I loved her generosity and her willingness to be an entrepreneur with a goal to make a difference to the world. Since then I´ve followed Moeloco on their journey, and when Kathy asked if I would like to be an ambassador for them, I saw it as an honour. I´m so grateful to be apart of making small changes to peoples life´s, hopefully inspire more people to see the importance of caring and giving.

Moeloco is so much more than just a pair of flipflops, it is hard work, love, honesty, commitment and the list goes on. Kathy is proving that giving back to less fortunate communities should not be an addition, but a major part of a business. Please take the time to read more about them at Moeloco & follow them on Instagram HERE.

The Team behind Moeloco have been working hard to reach a 1000 shoes for India, now before Christmas. So if you are still looking for a little gift for someone, a pair of Moeloco´s are a great gift, not expensive and you don´t just buy another little thing that does not do good for anyone, you give a child a pair of quality shoes, you give them hope.

Together we can all make an impact

Hope you are having a good Sunday, I usually don´t get very political involved, but I simply had to share my feelings and thoughts on Aleppo, its breaking my heart.

My social media, news pages & tv have been filled with horrible images of suffering innocent people in Aleppo. Last night I cried, I felt so incredible sad and helpless. Just imagining what people have to suffer through, injustice, hate and inhuman treatment. Why was I so lucky in my life? Why do I deserve to be so incredible safe and happy, living in Australia by choice, born in the world´s best country Norway. Why me, and not those innocent people? Luck, I was lucky. Hundreds of people were less lucky, and they still manage to find so much happiness, compassion and gratefulness in their life´s. But right at this moment, so many people have lost all hope, they´ve lost everything and everyone. Their life is a living hell, a hell that no one should have to experience.

I´m going to feel so incredible sad for these people until their life´s are being valued at the same level as mine. I will also send love and compassion, donate what I can afford, share on social media, try to make a difference. Hopefully you will do the same.

“You cant make someone love you more than someone can make you love them” 

Let´s share some love, kindness & generosity towards them who really need it, we can all make small or big differences in someones little life.

Hi lovelies!

Hope you are having a good week so far, maybe a few more days of work or exams before you start the holidays?

I want to share with you a super easy breakfast smoothie, packed with all goodness giving your body a great start to the day. As we all know a good breakfast is so important to prepare your body and mind for a good productive and active day.

My breakfast smoothie is quite rich and deep in flavour as I´m using a few key spices, spices that have some really health benefits.

Cardamom – rich of vitamins, dietary fibre & proteins

Turmeric –  Fights off bacteria and infections, preventing alzheimers and cancer, a great spice for flavour and for health

matcha – full of antioxidants, loaded with energy and  it detoxify´s the body, which is just a few benefits

Oats – packed with fibres and proteins, minerals and vitamins

Chia Seeds – omega, protein and fibres – a must for you on a vegetarian or  vegan diet.

Berries or fruit of your choice – I usually go for blueberries or raspberries

On days I don´t have to rush off anywhere Ill make it into a smoothie bowl, topping it with fruit, seeds and what I have available. On a busy morning I´ll drink it straight from the jar, its super great as a on the go breakfast.


Have a lovely day everyone

Blessed are the weird people; The poets, misfits, writers, mystics, painters, troubadours, for they teach us to see the world through different eyes” – Jacob Nordby

I just love this quote, to me it says you should let yourself be you, don´t be afraid to look, act or say it different. Together we can all teach each other about this life we live, lets dare to be different, dare to see the world through different eyes. Dare to stand up for yourself. Everyone will face huge challenges in their lives,  sometimes alone and sometimes with someone else; at the end of the day you have to be the hero of your own life.
