Let’s Just Talk About.. #2

.. How much I love this Instagram Profile! Her feed is dreamy.

.. Smiling. I’m trying to smile to anyone I meet when I’m out walking. Because it makes me happy, when I’m greeted with a smile from a stranger. It warms! The people I smile at rarely smiles back! I get it, we live in a massive city and everyone has their stresses , but they either look away, whilst this lunatic(ME) smiles like a massive twat!(Also me)  Maybe it’s just us small village people who smiles to each other and says hi? What do you think? 🙂

.. How damn good bread and cheese is? Seriously.. If I could choose just one thing to eat for the rest of my life, I think I would pick bread and cheese.. Who’s with me?!

.. Why it always takes 5 days of trying to get more toothpaste out, when the tube is empty. Guess who need to buy toothpaste?

.. How sassy this top* is?! Perfect for Valentines or any other day.

.. Speaking of Valentines.. I wouldn’t mind this mug set for Valentines. Obviously I’m the real boss, my boyfriend needs to know that too 😉

.. Fastelavn and embarrassing costumes! I mean.. Look at this ⇓

I think I’m around 13 years old, dressed up as a choppy trucker with one hand, which is sticking out from my pocket. Creative much?!

.. How soon they’ll make a workout machine, which you’ll be able to use in your sleep – so you won’t even notice that you’re excising!

.. Hotdogs.. Just because you should always talk about hotdogs!

.. And also! Seriously! Which was first.. The chicken or the egg? I need answers.

What’s In My Carry On..

Have been living abroad for the past 5+ years I’ve been travelling back and forth to Denmark quite a few times. Admittedly it hasn’t been easy for me to learn how to pack my cabin  bag optimal. I always packed either to little or to much clothes, forgot something important or brought something unnecessary.

giphy1

In the light of things, like me going to Edinburgh and only being able to bring a carry on, I think I finally cracked the code to how to pack the cabin bag, also I thought I would give you my best tips and advise on how and what to pack in your hand luggage. If you’re one of the lucky ones going or a weekend break away or are you planning your summer holiday, only bringing your cabin back, then I hope this guide will help make your trip a lot more comfortable:

dh
it’s a good idea to plan your outfits in advance. It may sound a little silly, but it works for me. I check the weather forecast and then go through my closet where I mainly pick an outfit for each day. Some bottoms can be used more than once so you can for example bring 2-3 blouses for the same skirt/pair of jeans/shorts or a simple dress can make an whole outfit. Then I always pack an extra outfit because knowing me, I might spill or something.
When I was younger, my problem was often that on holidays I dragged 20 kg of clothes with me and eventually only been been wearing half of it. If you coordinate your outfits from home, you can quickly get an idea of ​​how much clothes you really actually need.

Next of, you must comply with all the rules for what to bring of toiletries. You have a one liter bag, where each single bottle maximum can contain 100 ml, which is not a lot. However, I would recommend checking out what is really required to put in the bag. Lip balms and lipstick doesn’t need to go I normally just keep mine in my jacket pocket. Shampoo and toothpaste I would normally buy when I arrive as must citys now a days has a Poundland or similar, where you buy such stuff for nothing and you’ll save the extra weight for something else.
Additionally it’s possible to get Doves deodorants or in miniature size and it will last approximately 8-10 days depending on how much you use. So that comes in handy.  I personally just bring a roll on which always has the right size. When it comes to perfumes it’s a lot worse. It’s possible to get perfumes up to 50 ml, but the bottles do still take up a lot of space in your one liter bag. I don’t have great advise coming to that, other than I usually just throw a few perfume samples into the bag. When I travel on the shorter trips, I almost never have my beloved face cleaner, but instead I use cleaning wipes (make sure you find some decent ones, otherwise you can easily break ) and it doesn’t have to go in the small bag but can just stay in your carry on trolley.

ǀ Suitcase (Old Primark) ǀ Bra* ǀ Pants* ǀ

When packing your hand luggage can you for your own sake, put the things, you’ll need to take out going trough security, on top – including your laptop, tablet, toiletries and here’s a little tip! DO NOT put your undies on top! There’s nothing worse than your panties trying to escape your suitcase in front of EVERYONE 🙂

Have a safe trip!

18 Goals For 2018 #4

Last 5 goals for this year. Some have been heavier ones and mentally challenging and some quiet easy. But one thing’s for sure. It’s been so good for me to set these goals. Have you set any goals? Have you succeeded so far or given up?

DSC_0416

.. Learn one new recipe a month!
I love cooking but I rarely find the time, having to juggle work, more work, gym and socializing. I also live with 4 other people with sort of limit my time in the kitchen. Cooking is basically the most important skill a man or woman should possess in order to actually survive, okay okay you can just buy food, but does that not come with other side-effects? Also it allows you to save up money, you’ll eat the food you love just the way you want it and it will impress your certain someone with lovely meals shared under candlelight. That went a bit of track sozz! 🙂 What I was saying is I do bloody love cooking and I like to experiment in the kitchen, but I don’t often have the time to get creative. This year I want to cook more, it will ad to my savings and my health and I want to learn one new recipe a month. If you have any good dishes please share in the comments! 

.. I wanna learn from my mistakes and learn how to not fear failure!
Have you also made it a habit to look at all the things you didn’t manage to finish and tell yourself of for not finishing? Me too! And you might even stay later, like me, to finish it. I wanna do the opposite! Before leaving work or anything else, I instead want to look at all the things I actually managed to do and give my self some recognition. #stressnothankyou! Therefore I taught myself a little word of big importance. A small word which requires some getting use to in order to use it in your every day life. A little word that has helped me a lot. Being able to say “Whatever” or “fuck it” is not always easy, especially when being depressed or stressed in your everyday life, but it can be your turning point to learn to say those words and you’ll feel such a relief. I have been under a lot of pressure and stressed about both small and big things, and something that really has helped me is to say “fuck it all”. It taught me that I’m only a human being and taught me to control my inner critic, which is really my worst enemy. It told me to be better, run faster, be more effective and basically being a squid with only two arms. Impossible right? But I learned from that and I hope you will too. You’re not alone!

.. Be better at using ALL of the items I already have.
Be better at using my wardrobe to the fullest. My everyday wardrobe often rotates week after week and I often end up in the same sort of outfit. Which means I have too many items hanging in my closet, which rarely gets used. This I will change in 2018. I admit I like buying new things, no way out of that one. It’s both fun and exciting and something I really enjoy. But I rather put my money on a awesome travel destination or on a really quality item, which I can use for longer than a bottled water, trends that’ll past faster than a cheese in my house (and cheese disappear really fast at mine) and other unnecessary things. I still want to fell smart and fashionable though and I’ll always be in to fashion and beauty, but I would like to buy less and use what I already have more.  I also wanna get invited a party where I can wear a floor-length dress, a la this* and this. (Okay might be a tough one! Someone please invite me! :p) Which granted does require a certain kind of party. 

.. Spoil myself with flowers once a month and be more social.
I love LOVE flowers and as I mentioned here and on several occasions I really think they bring life and joy to a room. So to help my self and my boyfriend out, I’ll buy myself a bouquet of flowers once a month. I also wanna go out more with friends, doesn’t need to be anything fancy but just really spending time with them. 

.. Stick to all my new goals and new habits!
I want to make this positive changes permanent. This one is sort of self explanatory, so I’ll stop rambling 🙂


 

But mainly my biggest wish is that all my nearest and dearest, and you guys, are all in good health and happy. If only that thing will go right, then I don’t need anything else 🙂

Friday Gratefulness //7


It’s time for the first Friday Gratefulness of the year. You’ve previously heard me talking about May, June, July and all the other summer and spring months like I’m in love with them. I am! Actually I normally chat about how lovely I think the current month is, but that doesn’t go for January. Sorry Jan! But you make my heart heavy and my skin dry and see-through soooo.. I’m not really a fan!

You can re-read
Friday Gratefulness // 1 here

Friday Gratefulness // 3 here
Friday Gratefulness // 4 here

Friday Gratefulness // 6 here

This post however is about positivity and what I’m grateful for, so let’s mention one great thing about January.. Okay not great. Let’s say good then. January is one of the quieter months, forgetting all the goal setting, gym sessions etc. But it is a slow and quiet month where it’s okay to just stay inside and binge-watch Netflix all day and eat chocolate. Friends is on Netflix now! Hallelujah! 🙂 So that’s exactly what I’ve done except for the chocolate, which doesn’t work well with my gym sessions. How do you feel about January?

I’m so grateful for starting a whole new year, with loads of new opportunities that I’m trying to create for myself. I’m so so grateful I have the option to do so. Let’s all make sure we make this the best year yet and every year thereafter! You deserve it.

18 Goals For 2018! #3

8 goals ud 18, skriv 5 i dette post.

26937455_10215044575724983_422531225_o

You can read about the first 8 here and here.

.. Drink less sugary drinks and more water!
I hate the fact that my skin looks like an teenager who just got in to puberty. I’m 25 years old now and personally think it should have changed by now. But admittedly nothing changes if I don’t change, so instead of drinking sugary drinks (stupid empty calories ) I’ll stick to water which does taste good and on the plus side is free! Also, drinking more water will actually improve my skin a lot more. 

.. Spend my money wisely and start saving!
I had a tendency to just buy and buy whenever I saw something I liked, whether it be clothes, bags or coffees. Mainly because I had the idea that saving money would’nt make any sense as you can take your savings with you in your grave. Sinister I know, but I think that’s what I thought or maybe the fact that I was raised with the you have to earn your money to get the stuff you like and unfortunately I like a lot of things haha. On the other hand though, how will I ever go on a nice holiday if I keep on spending my money, or buy a house or anything else. I was stupid and it took me 25 years and a hella lot of talks with my parents, grandparents and boyfriend, to realize. But sometimes I think you just need to get to that conclusion yourself, because that’s when it actually sticks to your brain. Does any of this even make sense? I’m not sure 🙂. Anyhow I started saving up for my NYC trip because that’s expensive. All I had to do, was giving up that cup of coffee that I bought every day and drink the coffee that’s a work, and is free. So far this one is working out quite well and if do go and buy the coffee, I’ll punish my self by removing those £3 from my NYC savings account. Learn the hard way or not at all kinda thing. 

..  Be more organised!
I feel like my life sometimes feel chaotic, do you know what I mean? I set up a bunch of plans with friends, plan to go here and there and everywhere, then someone cancels or it just doesn’t seem to happen. That’s why this year I bought a calendar in order to start organizing and making plans that will happen. I know something always comes up but I won’t be able to remember everything unless I write it down.  Such as making to do lists as will definitely help me in my everyday life but also in regards to planing posts on my Instagram and here on the blog – because I’m planing on creating loads more content this year without lowering the quality.  So far I find that this actually helps me a lot more than everything being digital and also a sense of relief when you can tick it off manually. Oh the joy 🙂 So yeah. I want to get more organised overall, like even my wardrobe is like a big chaotic pile which I find doesn’t really help me at all.

.. Change bad habbits!
The biggest thing that keeps me from reaching my goals is the desire to relax and do something fun instead of working hard, and thinking I deserve it. Granted your body and brain needs rest and you should rest but I have to stop feeling self pity making up excuse as of why I need the rest. Once I get used to postponing or coming up with excuses it will get more and more difficult to snap myself out of the vicious circle. So I will need to put in a lot of work to change this bad habit. This is only one of my bad habits, there’s plenty haha. 

.. Love myself!
So a lot of my goals actually adds to this, because my goals are set for me to be better. Not just my physical appearance but also my mental state of mind and actually I already feel a lot better by working out, saving money(less stress) and organizing my life and plans. I’ve always had a lot of insecurities on my appearances but also the feeling of never being good enough. I used to be anorexic now I’m battling the opposite and my weight and my looks will probably always be an insecurity, but I’m now 25 years old and decided I don’t wanna live my life being sad about not looking like this or not feeling good enough. I always make up excuses for my self before anyone else can say anything (most people probably wont say anything as well). Excuses like “Sorry for looking shit today, I’m just tired or I’m not feeling well or I’m not wearing make-up” any of those goes to be honest. I don’t believe there’s one person in the world who doesn’t have just one thing they wanna change about them self. But instead of wanting to change things(except for my weight, I do need to lose weight for my health’s sake) I want to turn the negative energy into something else and start loving myself for who I really am, because I am, like you, good enough. And most of all, I am human and human makes mistakes and learn from them.

On Wednesday We Wear Pink #7

Its wednesday
And we all now what that means here on the blog. Lately I’ve been finding myself gravitating towards pink sweaters of all hues – from baby pink to deep hot pink. But one specific item has been wandering my mind for a little while now, the Ganni sweater! How dreamy is it ? As it turns out, it is also super pretty and quite trendy. In my opinion pink never ever goes out of fashion!

17 january

 

I would love to wear this look here in the winter months, as I personally think it will add a little colour to my life (or any life). Don’t you reckon? I would pair it with a white shirt underneath to avoid the massive contrast of going from a pink jumper directly to a pair of skinny black jeans. Alongside these sassy heeled boots, I would add simple accessories I.E. black cat eye glasses and a nice black bag.
