Red alert inspo !!

I don´t know about you but I always associate Christmas with the color RED. I am trying to be a little bit more daring these days and stop myself from wearing my conventional black outfit for work. I found some inspo pictures for you guys on Pinterest. Much love xx


Do these things to get through any situation!

Do these things to get through any situation!

I consider myself to be a positive and cheerful person, most of the time anyway. Things however are never always happy go lucky all of the time. For me I try and stay focused on my tasks ahead and I was thinking about how to deal with a situation I was faced. I wrote down a few steps that I take when I feel like I am stuck, if something is not going the way I had planned or just things that I practice. Analyze: Try to take a step back from whatever situation you are in. Try to look at it from all angles and see if you can do something differently or if you need to walk away from the project all together. That can require an enormous strength in itself. Personal time: I have written about this in an earlier blogpost and I still stick to it. I set my alarm an hour before I have to leave my house for work but if not an hour then give yourself 15 minutes. It gives me time and space for myself and it is absolutely my favorite time of the day. Set goals: If I have a task that seems impossible or too big to handle, I chop them down into smaller goals and mini tasks. I write them down on a piece of paper and each time I finish a task I tick it of the list. It makes me feel like I am one step closer to the finish line. Stop Comparing: Stop comparing yourself with others. We are all so different with different set of goals , thank god. You can look up to others with qualities that you admire but remember you have your own set of qualities, potential and goals. Forgive: I am still…


Scandinavian Christmas Crush

Scandinavian Christmas Crush

December is here already and I haven´t  had any time to decorate yet.  I am not much for over doing it when it comes to decorating for Christmas and I like things to be clutter free and low key.  After waking up super early this morning and drooling over pictures on pinterest during my morning coffee, I think I found my inspiration for Christmas this year. I wanted to share the pictures with you in case you might find if useful for your Christmas decoration. Have a lovely day 🙂


Holiday Gift Guide

Holiday Gift Guide

Some people can be quite tricky when it comes to giving them presents. They either seem to buy the thing they need almost instantly or dont have any clue what they want.  I often end up giving them something generic and boring. This year I decided to do some detective work and try to find something within a wide price range and would be creative and fun to give. The jacket from 66 north has been on my wishlist since last year – actually I first saw it in red and black but I don´t think they make it in that color anymore. Makeup is always a classy gift and perfect for  a friend. I have been using the lip balm from the blue lagoon forever and there is no turning back I also carry the face mist from collagenvorur.is in my bag at all time – a product that I can highly recommend. The Becca primer and foundation is on my wishlist as well as the sunflower clock from Vitra – one can always dream. Manuka Doctor Eye Oil, Available at Deisymakeup. Blue Lagoon Scented Lava, Available at Blue Lagoon. 66 North Tindur Puffered Jacket, Available at 66North. Nikki Williams Key Ring, Available at Mai. Rifle Paper Co. Diary, Available at Petit.is. Frederik Bagger Glasses, Available at Snúran. Vitra Sunflower Clock, Available at penninn. Aurum Earrings, Available at Aurum.  Becca Back Light Priming Filter, Available at Hagkaup. Bobbi Brown Satin & Caviar Shadow & Long-Wear gel eyeliner pallette, Available at Hagkaup. Atelo Face Mist, Available at collagenvorur.is. Blue Lagoon Lip Balm, Available at Blue Lagoon.  RIVSALT, Available at rvkdesign.is.   Hope this list gives you some inspiration on what to give your loved ones. Have a lovely day 🙂
