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.

As you all know by now I´m a advocate for purchasing everything vintage, our planet has reached a  tipping point of being cluttered by more than anyone need of anything materialistic. Supporting vintage trade will hopefully slow the production of new things down, it is taking time, but every little effort helps.

Wearing vintage I receive far more compliments when I don´t. Probably 8/10 times wearing vintage I´m given a compliment compared to when I´m not wearing anything vintage it happens not even half as many times. I love clothes and my style is very important part of the person I am, so receiving compliments for my vintage clothes gives me a lot of joy.

This lovely piece of wool cardigan was bought at a vintage & antique market in London, we stumbled up on while discovering new areas. It only cost my 10 pound, which it was so worth. You may find the most beautiful pieces when you are not looking for them.

My whole life I´ve had a body weight that according to the statistics are underweight. I often felt underweight and ugly-skinny when I was young. No curves and visible bones made me feel uncomfortable in my own body, I didn´t want to exercise to much, scared of becoming even skinnier and look even less feminine than what I already did. Thankfully with age, I did gain a little bit I learnt that exercise is ok even though you are skinny and I finally grew some feminine curves as well. I´m still very skinny, and the combination of a really high metabolism and my healthy eating is not making it easier to gain weight. I´m overall very happy with my body structure today, there is still people who might comment on it, or think “that girl got some eating issues”, which I do not have. I LOVE FOOD, but I love mostly healthy food, I am trying to gain some more muscle mass and weight, as I currently feel I could need a few more kilos, but it is not an easy challenge.

We all got our issues.

 

We all have different body issues, different weights, proportions & shapes, which we deal with in different ways. Remember the most important is that you treat your body in a healthy way & do not measure yourself after how others look.

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.


EXPEDITION HAPPINESS

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.

 


THE LAST SHAMAN

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.

I´m turning 26 tomorrow, me personally do not think turning 26 is that much big of a deal, A year older, with a little more baggage, life experience slightly changed goals with a plan that this year will be a much better year than last year. This year becoming better than last year, does not really have anything to do with my age, but I guess I can start working on it even more from tomorrow on? Hoping 26 will be a more enjoyable and purposeful year, discovering more of who I am, what I want & places I wanna go see. I´m a restless soul, wanting to see and live to many places, help more people & animals and find my place in this fucked up world.

I´m still in search of the answer to life, I dont think 26 will be the year I find the answer, though I might get a step closer.

“In oneself lies the whole world
and if you know how to look and learn,
the door is there and the key in your hand.
Nobody on earth can give you either
the key or the door to open.
Except yourself”

Yesterday we had a little family gathering for my mothers birthday and for my birthday, which is next week. I was in charge of the food & dessert, I decided for baked vegetable risotto and carrot cake. I´m not a big cake person, but if there is one cake I do love, it is carrot cake. I found a vegan recipe on a Norwegian veggie food blog Vegetarbloggen.no

She is so inspiring when it comes to finding new ideas for food & desserts, with weekly updates. The carrot cake was an success, it tasted amazing. I followed the recipe, just changing the normal sugar with brown sugar, as I think it has a nicer flavour and a tiny bit healthier. I try to avoid sugar as much as possible,  but it is ok to make exceptions sometimes.

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?

ENJOY

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.

YES CHOCOLATE CAN ABSOLUTELEY BE VEGAN & DELICIOUS 

if there is one thing I´m pretty sick of hearing is that ” ah pore you, you cant eat chocolate anymore!?” First of all, the main ingredients in chocolate comes from the cocoa bean, which is a plant. Yes a plant. So making chocolate without diary products is super easy. Second of all, I can eat any chocolate I please, but I choose not too. It is not because I can´t. Being vegan is thankfully becoming easier and cheaper, as the demand is rising, so finding amazing delicious chocolate is not an issue anymore.


My two favourite brands that I´ve tried so far, is the brand called Loving Earth, which is so creamy and delicious not to forget the packaging is just so pretty. Second is a Norwegian brand called Berits, which have a coconut one and raspberry one, both so tasty.

The best part, you dont even have to be vegan to love these chocolates

Sharing coffees and wine with  likeminded souls is always good remedy for anything. Taking photos, stalking insanely handsome surfers on Instagram, being single together. Seeing the world a little differently than most & choosing paths out of the ordinary.  Following our hearts instead of following the “smart choices”, which society expects of us.

 

Why be ordinary when you can go for extraordinary?

Breathe in……. and out. Through your nostrils.
Doing yoga is not only good for your body strength and flexibility but it is also strengthening your mind and soul. I started a yoga challenge right after the break up, which have really helped me find new strength and move forward during very difficult times. Doing yoga everyday, following the program makes the exercise much easier to complete, because you feel like you owe it to the yoga teacher to show up on your math every day. It might sound strange, as I´m “just” following a 30 day challenge via youtube, so she cant actually see me or know if I´m doing my practise. But somehow yoga practise really makes you feel a real connection and commitment, especially when you start noticing the difference in your body and mind.
