Hi beautiful people


I´ve had a really hectic week so far and its not slowing down until Wednesday next week. I´m in week three of twelve at this trimester, so next week is the first assessment week. There´s a lot of work to be done this term. I´m one step from finishing my Branded Fashion Design degree, so this trimester we are getting a pre-taste of what the last term is going to look like. Currently working on a brand proposal for my label, as we have to develop a brand, both visual and physical. The physical part is having our designs made, with all the appropriate features, industry standards, all though this term we only have to make 1 look. When I´m working on all the visual that has to be done, I need a good study rhythm and a good spot to work.

The days I´m not at uni, I make my kitchen into a study desk, this works great, as I can “build” a standing desk. I concentrate so much better standing up, and also it is so much better for your blod circulation and for your posture and back. Sitting long days on a chair is the worst. If you have not tried the “standing technique” before, it will probably feel a bit odd the first couple of times, but I really encourage you to test it out, and if you get tired, take short breaks of sitting down and doing stretch-exercises. It has made my study hours so much more productive.

Enjoy the rest of your week guys, hopefully you got less things to do!

When you have those moments;”The Big City Life” has gotten to you, and you just need to escape, it is like that sometimes. Sydney is a big city, though the heart of the city is actually not that big. Living here for over 3 years, I think I know the city by heart, I could not get lost anymore. This is one of the many things I like about Sydney, a few other things are; all the amazing beaches and coastal walks we got so close by, all the little suburbs away from the CBD that has great little shops, cafes and parks. A third is the fact that the weather is over all really good, and we still get 4 seasons here, which I love! You can not enjoy sunny days if you never have any rainy and cold once.

Yesterday was one of those “I´m over the city days” so we went out to Watson´s Bay, just enjoyed being in a different area, watch the ocean and the city from a distanse and get some fresh air. Beautiful day.

Hello October!

New month, warmer days, new challenges & new opportunities.

  Before getting started on October I was inspired by fellow Femelle blogger Nenna Echem, doing a recap of her top 5 September moments, which is a great way to remind yourself of some good moments that has passed, preparing for new once to arrive.

Hope everyone are ready for what ever October may bring





Ubud has to be experienced, it is just so beautiful


Uni started 3 weeks ago and it is so great to be back feeling really motived this time!



After the holiday I started doing meditation again, a minimum of 5 days a week, I´ve also got back into my really good yoga routines, twice a week.



I AM ENOUGH, how often do you tell yourself that? I for sure do not say it enough, or think it enough. We all struggle to be better, the constant pressure we put on ourself. The constant comparisons we make, everyday. I´ve started watching/reading and listening to really great and inspirational people the last few weeks, it makes you take a step back and look at yourself and see your life from a new angle. I got so much to learn in this life, cause the truth is we never stop learning or growing, today I decided to tell myself every day that I AM ENOUGH. cause it the truth, I am.

Now it is your turn to, tell yourself everyday, no matter if it is a good day or a bad one, YOU ARE ENOUGH!!! cause the more you believe in yourself, the more you will achieve. Write it down, say it out loud, tell other friends to practise the same, be proud of yourself, everyday. Watch this video for some weekend inspiration, to get you motived.


Days are becoming longer, so we are finally getting to enjoy the afternoon sun again, take advantage of a few extra hours of light. Outside exercise, walking in the park and my favourite of them all, going down by the beach when the crowds of people are gone, and just watch the ocean and the colours of the sky slowly change. Those moments are never the same, they are all so magical. It is to easy to take these happenings for granted and forget to enjoy the moments, so next time you are doing something you do every week, or you do once in a while; really enjoy, remind yourself how amazing it is and see it with “new eyes”.

My passion for style and dressing always comes back to thinking sustainable and make conscious choices, still keeping my taste and fashion style the way I love it. My top/dress is a vintage dress, the pearls I bought from a local seller in Bali, skirt has been in my wardrobe for about 6 years and the shoes I recently bought as my boyfriend complained I never wore sneakers.

Cooking is one of many favourite activities, it makes me really relaxed and happy. Most of my diet is a vegan or vegetarian diet, which is really easy and always full of flavour! I really want to share my food lifestyle with you guys, hopefully encouraging more people to pick up on a diet more plant-based, than meat-based. Get inspired. Cook more. Stay healthy, fit and on budget.

Living on a student budget, you cant always go for your first choice, I find it hard to compromise, but it just have to be done. I love pasta, almost to much, so this dish is a simple pasta dish full of flavour, and it is easy to do on a budget. I chose normal pasta this time, as it allows me to buy more veggies on the weekly budget.

Chick Pea – Zesty – Pesto – Pasta





Cut the garlic, the chilli and the broccoli into really small pieces. Drain and clean the chick peas. Cut the tomato´s into small squares, and mix it with a bit of olive oil and the fresh parsley.


Lightly fry the broccoli, chilli, garlic and the chick peas with olive oil. Add the herbs you prefer, I used Italian mixed herbs, himalaya salt and pepper. Last you add the pesto and the lemon. Depending on how much pesto flavour and zest you prefer, add it as you tast.


drizzle some extra olive oil over the pasta, add the cooked ingredients, topping it with the fresh tomato-parsley mix and fresh spinach.




Happy weekend to everyone!

I already posted about these pants a few months back, about how much I love them, how extremely comfy they are and the amazing fit, to not forget colour! I usually wear pants /jeans maybe 1 out of 7 days. So finding a pair that I love that much is rare, so Ill probably wear them to death, good summer is just around the corner here.


Hope your day is magical and unexpected, I´m off to wine & game night with friends here in Sydney.

Here comes the final recap of the Bali trip, posting about it kind of eases the transition from holiday mode back to normal life again. Especially on a rainy day like today.

Our last destination for this trip was the tropical area of Ubud. For many Ubud is a holistic sanctuary and real escape from the troubles of life. You find healthy food everywhere, yoga and meditation places and holistic retreats. A great destination for people who are seeking to find piece of mind, answers to life questions or a change of perspective.

We staid in a little home stay 10-15 min from the main food/shopping area, which is a perfect distanse away from everything. Being in Ubud you really want to feel the jungle and the tropical, it is good to escape busy-ness and find peace for a few days, or weeks.

You should while staying there, visit rice fields, the monkey forrest, if you seek some challenge do one of the sunrise climbs and visit a few of the amazing arts and craft shops around.

Today is International Day of Peace, which means what exactly?

There are millions of people out there who will not have any sense of peace on this particular day, cause their lives are filled with poverty, war, abuse or anything else that does not creates peace.

My life however is so far from any of those scenarios, I can´t even imagine how it feels. So what does this day mean to me?

It gives me the feeling of real gratefulness, towards everything in my life, even the bad things, cause the bad things maybe more than all the great things, shapes you as a person. Grateful for feeling safe, being able to to be who I am and what I want. Being able to use the peace in my life, making someone else´s life a better life. It also makes me sad for everyone who never will experience peace, and my thoughts and good energy will be dedicated to these people, hopefully you will do the same, as we can slowly make a better and more peaceful life for others.


A second thing we can all do, is support a case or someone/ a business that is making a difference to improving the lives of others. I´ve been luck to have an ambassador role for a company called Moeloco, Moeloco makes flip flips with meaningful messages, where every pair sold will give a child in poverty a pair of new shoes.


This outfit was on my last day in Bali, It suited perfectly as some of the holiday did not turn out as great. We had some difficulty along the way, so I decided that wearing this happy positive dress on our last day was a symbol of changing attitude and perspective. Leaving the frustration and negativity behind, working on self-growth, being open for new ideas, other peoples perspectives and move away from bad habits.
