We are already half way through June, blessed with several weeks of beautiful weather which have enchanted Oslo, everything has blossomed to life.

I have not made to many plans for this Summer, as I´ve decided to work a lot until January, planning a new long trip from beginning of January until whenever, cant wait to share more of this with you lovelies.

I have a few plans for the next months, but I just take the weeks as the come, there is a lot happening in Oslo the next months, so its just fun to take each weeks as they happen, with the occasional planned happenings.


Hiking at our cabin 

Exploring Oslo´s nature spots & vegan eateries.


Visiting Larvik in some of my free weekends.

Going to Spain with the family


Mountain/car trip to the Vest of Norway, going on a few different hikes. 

I love to plan a lot, with plans constantly changing as I change my mind. My mind is a tornado of ideas and thoughts, so this next months I´m trying to tell my self to slow down the planning, just be more present & take the opportunities as they come at me. 






With spring comes the beautiful yellow dandelions, they pop up everywhere and most people dont think much of them. I´m here to change your opinion on that. The dandelion is a super great plant that has real health benefits, especially the root of the flower.

The dandelion root is a great, to mention a few amazing uses for it; detoxifier of our digestive system, liver, gallbladder & its also a powerful antioxidant. The amazing thing is that you can just go out and pick it yourself, so its a complete free super food right outside of your door.

The best way to use the root, is to dry it, pick it into tiny small pieces and boil it. I decided to add in a few other amazing elements to my elixir, to get a kick ass super healthy daily booster.

turmeric root, ginger root, black pepper & chilli. 


I add the black pepper because it makes it much easier for the body to absorb the health benefits of turmeric, it increases the observation with app 2000%, which is insanely high, so no point leaving it out.  



Chop the turmeric, ginger and dandelion root into small pieces, add it into the pot with water.

Crush the black peppers or use a pepper cracker.

Chop the fresh chilli, just add after your liking of spice, I like it pretty spicy so Ill add a reasonable amount.

Let it all boil and then simmer for a while, 1-2h.

Let it cool down before you strain it with a cloth, to get all the pieces out. I´m leaving it to cool all day, as I´m busy for the rest of the day.


To make sure we dont waist any part of the brew, try to blend all the little pieces with some new water in a blender, drain it again, so hopefully you can still get some final juice out of the ingredients.

Your end result will look like this 




I´m  a dedicated podcast listener, specially  self-improvement / self-growth & spirituality, and on the other side of the scale; true crime podcasts. I mostly listen to podcast when I commute, as I find it a great way to keep occupied with something useful while travelling, instead of just scrolling through Facebook/Instagram looking at non-useful content.


My absolute favourite spiritual and self-growth podcast at this current time, is “Highest Self” podcast. The host is a female called Sahara Rose, who talk about many interesting aspects of spirituality and how to become your highest self, and she also interviews interesting people.


Check out the website clicking the image under, to find out more about Sahara, the podcast and her messages to us.

I use Podcast Player from Castbox; you find it in your app store/play store and it is free.






Donating your time and energy to a group or organisation that works for things you believe in is a great way to give back. Giving money is obviously a great contribution, and most organisations would not be able to do their amazing work without money from people. However your time is also a precious thing to contribute.

I signed up as a volunteer for Norway´s largest animal rights groups, NOAH.
I´m joining them whenever I can and I find this is a great way to really give back and support the animal rights, which is one thing I´m extremly passionate about.. It is also a beautiful way to connect with like-minded people, share ideas, visions and passions.

Check out NOAH`S work by clicking on the image above, and if you dont support a animal welfare group yet, become a contributor too. ♥






Hi lovelies, just wanna check in to let you know that Bali/ Nusa is amazing, but most of my time is dedicated to the learning of the yogi system & lifestyle, so I´ve decided to not feel any pressure on updating the blog frequently. Whenever I have time and I feel like it I will do a little update. In the meantime I´ll focus 100% on this life changing journey that I´m on. This is the best decision I´ve made, next to moving to Australia five years ago.

Much love from paradise



I used to do regular “summaries” of the months as they passed and realised I havent done that for quite some time. Doing a summary of the winter therefore seemed more fitting, as it is finally over, and it has been a bit of a wild one I have to say.



The absolute worst and toughest part this winter was going through a break-up, especially when you choose to break-up with a person you actually still want to be together with. But our goals and needs became to different and to difficult for us o to please. Life is a strange puzzle, and sometimes you have to accept that the pieces you so desperately want to fit is not fitting, even though it might look like they do. Maybe we just need some time apart, who knows.


One really great thing about this winter is that I´ve been doing more skiing than I ever can remember, which have been a great escape. I love being in nature, especially the mountains.


A puzzle that worked out really well, was that I was so lucky to move into my friend Frida´s apartment. This have been so good for me. I love spending time with her, and we just have so much crazy fun together and really understand each other, with good and bad.


This winter I finally made the decision to follow one of many dreams, with many more to follow when this one is achieved. Deciding to take my yoga to the next level, I´m flying to Indonesia in two weeks, completing the first level of becoming a certified yoga instructor. Living in a word where it is to easy to just do what is expected of you, and follow the main stream, I cant explain how good it feels to choose a different way of living.







One thing that I´ve really come to appreciate and not take for granted the last six months, is not to be ashamed of failure. Most people live their life afraid of failing, so therefore they do not dare taking the chances where they dont have a clear view of the outcome. We are so scared of failing, that we miss out on great opportunities that could lead us on a path to higher grounds, even if dont reach the peak of success we will learn from it till the next time we have an opportunity.


Before I finally managed to make the decision that I wanted to become a certified yoga teacher, I was only thinking about all the postures I could not manage and how I was failing at not being good enough. I have never been naturally flexible, I have never been really strong or good at anatomy but I do LOVE yoga and all the great benefits of it. Thankfully I changed my mindset around, I simply allow myself to fail, not be good enough. Because I will try again and again, until I will manage to do it. I will work hard for it, because if i dont dare to fail I will never know how far I can reach.


My friend Frida and I have been practising different “difficult” yoga postures, Feathered Peacock being the most difficult one, we still are not able to do it properly, but we are not giving up on it. When we finally manage to do it perfectly, we will find a new and more difficult one to practise.  




A new week has just begun, maybe you have a heavy start to it, or maybe you are easing into it like I´m lucky enough to do. I´ve come to really enjoy Mondays, cause I most of the time start work around 1pm, so I have really fresh productive Monday mornings, with tea in bed, yoga, a little bit of house organisation and anything else that I should have done before heading to work.

I´m starting the day off with both music and podcast and this is my top 4 songs right now…

ODESZA – Kusangi


MOGLI – Wanderer

When my heart shuts down I don’t speak Cause behind the muffled beating I am weak The earth is ripped with cracks Beneath my feet One word more they become crater’s

Oh the wind in my hair It sings my song To be a Wanderer and to go home Oh the wind in my hair It sings my song To be a Wanderer To be a Wanderer and to go home


STU LARSEN – Far away from here


LORD HURON – The night we met

Hope your Monday turn out to be a great one, if not try making it great. Start with positive vibes & a positive mind, it will get you a long way.








I had a really nice birthday celebration last night, a few friends yummy food & wine in a small low key bar/restaurant. It was just how I like it. A few days a go I was in need of some inspiration and motivation, often feeling a bit different than the norm I do need to boost my system with alternative thinking from likeminded people. Searching for some input I came a cross two documentary´s on Netflix, both really hit me they way I had hoped, sparking my system.


A travel documentary about a young couple finding their path, inspiration and searching for a higher meaning in life, while travelling in a selfmade living bus.

Nature. Loneliness. Mindfulness. Culture. Togetherness. Happiness.



Following a extremely depressed person, who is on the verge of killing himself. Travelling alone to Peru, seeking up ancient wisdom and medicine healers to to try make one last effort to cure his depression. It is a really honest, raw and inspiring story.

Depressing. Raw. Honest. Eye-opening. Alternative.




Happy Friday to everyone,  all though most of us love weekends, do not forget to enjoy everyday. Life is to short to just live for the weekends. With that said, I do hope you have a wonderful weekend ahead? Either if you have to work, are going away, are already on holiday or maybe even returning from holiday?


I´m on the bus home, to have family time and birthday celebrations. My mum´s birthday was yesterday, and my birthday is Thursday next week, so we are having a small family gathering on Saturday. I´m not to fussed about celebrating my birthday to be honest, especially 26, dont really need a big party for that.  However I do like having some quality time with the family, eating good food and playing cards.

We are making a yummy baked veggie risotto, with bruschetta and other delicious sides and the best part, carrot cake for dessert. I personally are not a big cake eater, but I do love carrot cakes, so making this vegan version for the first time, I´m pretty exited about the result.
