Challenge Day 4- No smoothie as time ran out preparing children for school

Ok so today was just one of those days when things don’t work out according to plan. No smoothie for me! It was preparing my daughter, making her breakfast, ensuring she made it to her “fritids” and walking slowly as she has a little splinter in her foot. But you know what. That’s absolutely fine. I’ll pick this smoothie challenge up again tomorrow!

Live life now, enjoy every minute of every day and do something today that makes you truly happy: contact an old friend, call someone in your family, cook a nice meal, treat yourself to something you’ve been looking for, for a while, find a good movie, go for a run… the list could be made a lot lot longer. Just do it! ✅

Make-up Laura Mercier for a quick morning fix!

I like make up. There are so many brands available and new products are coming out in the market regularly. Right now I look for items that are multi- use and quick- as I need to be fast in the mornings. Last year I fell in love with Laura Mercier. Unfortunately these products don’t seem to be as easily available in Copenhagen as in London. Hopefully that’ll change soon!

Right now I use the tinted moisturiser which is illuminating. And it also contains spf 20, which is perfect now as it’s so sunny here. I also adore their eye pens that stick. Very easy and quick to use. Just these products make a big difference- especially when you look a bit tired. Something I truly recommend!

iPhones and to be present society has changed

Observing on my train journey how 80% of people in my carriage are using their iPhone or Androids, makes me think. What did we do before these gadgets? I remember my first Nokia mobile phone. It was the size of a brick! I still have it. Most likely a collector item today.

I think the world we live in is great in terms of communication. I’ve lived abroad and away from family and friends a lot. However distance doesn’t matter or feel as difficult when you can call using Viber, WhatsApp, FaceTime messenger. It truly changes things. At least for me. I will however stick to my third challenge of being more present and disconnect for a week. Tell myself that I won’t check work messages, or scroll internet between certain set hours. Maybe a bit contradictory as I am now working on getting this blog looking nice and attracting readers! But… I still think it’s a good thing to do!

Challenge Day 2- Smoothie challenge towards a healthier lifestyle

So on Day 2 of my Smoothie challenge. Again another very simple one:

1 cup of oat milk

1 ripe banana

1 tbs of chia seeds

1 hint of honey

Add this all to your mixer and blend! Or add this all to your blender and mix- whatever way you prefer.

Then promise me that you will enjoy this healthy start to your day. Live life- every minute of every day. Life is special, life is precious.
