Birthday wishes

YEES soon it’s my birthday and I will turn 23! More precise the 9th of December.

Every year when my birthday is approaching my family is asking for my birthday wishes, and because I am a December girl, most years I make a combined Birthday/Christmas wish list. Every year I find it hard to make a wish list. It’s not like when I was a child anymore, where I crossed over every toy I wished for in the Fætter BR (Danish toy store) Catalogue. Now, I can’t come up with any wishes, and I kind of feel like I have what I need. Or that the things I want, I don’t want right now. For example, I really want some beautiful furniture, interior, and tableware for the living room and kitchen, but not now. I want to start wish for these things when I have settled and live in a place, where I will live for many years.

I managed to find some wishes this year. Foundation and protein powder, because I am out of these things. Books, because I am interested in communication, PR, branding and marketing. and I want to be become smarter and improve in these areas. Workout tights, because the ones I have are worn out and almost see-through when I am doing squats. The first pair is from Skins (A200), the second from Adidas (Response tights), and the third from Nike (Epic running tights). I hope to get one of these pairs.

Do you have any Christmas wishes already? Inspiration and ideas are very welcome in the comment section.

Good night!


ASOS Velvet 2

Velvet is everywhere right now. Shoes, bags, dresses, blazers, and trousers. Plus, I have even seen underwear, hoodies and joggers made out out of velvet online. Velvet reminds me a little bit about my childhood, because I think I had a velvet (Christmas?) dress as a little girl. Also, I associate velvet with a tablecloth used at parties.

Here comes a funny little story. The first time I really noticed velvet this year was at the fitness competition in which I competed. A girl had a bikini made out of velvet, which I thought was really pretty and special, because she was the only one. From that day on I started to notice velvet quite often. I have come to like this fabric for clothing, but to a certain point, because sometimes velvet can make the clothing look cheap, I think. Below are my favourite pieces from (search for ‘velvet’).

Winter boots.


Tadaaa, my very first collage made in Photoshop. I am really trying to learn how to use Photoshop at the moment, and this one was actually quite simpel and easy. I had a small Photoshop course at my Uni once (one-two years ago) but afterwards I forgot what I learned as I didn’t have the program on my computer to practise at home. I could attend extra courses now but I will try to learn it by myself. It should be possible with help from the books I borrowed from the library, the endless amount of youtube tutorials that exist, and my multimedia designer friends. More collages coming up!

My collage consists of my favourite winter boots this season. It’s pretty obvious what kind of boots i like. Yes, the Chelsea boots. The over-the-knee boots is also trending right now, and this trend, I find, is actual really practical unlike some other fashion trends. The advantage of wearing over-the-knee boots would be not getting snow inside your shoe, which would be harder to avoid in a pair of Chelsea boots. I like these boots when they are tight with a heel.

Healthy vs. unhealthy cookies.

I am bringing cookies to a girl’s night tomorrow,  and I decided to bake two very different kind of cookies. Nutella cookies for the sweet tooth and banana oatmeal cookies for a healthy choice. Both really easy and doesn’t require much preparation. Also, I just bought a new oven, which I was exited to try out.




20 g Coconut Flour

70 g Oatmeal

3 Ripe Bananas




70 g Sugar

185 g Flour

120 g Nutella

2 Eggs

Family dinner.


I had my family over for dinner last Monday, and I decided to make baked salmon with honey, ginger and garlic spices. Unfortunately, I have no pictures of the salmon, because we were so hungry, that I forgot to bring out the camera. It was delicious! Salmon is my favorite fish, and I can’t believe I didn’t like it once. Actually, I didn’t like any seafood at all, but well, luckily that changed.

For the main dish, I also made two rucola pesto and mozzarella bread, and a salad. It was hard to make the bread as I realized, I didn’t have a rolling pen halfway through the making, which is also the reason the dough is a too thick and messes up the braided look a little bit. Most importantly, my family told me the bread tasted well. I am still on my healthy competition diet, so no bread (or dessert) for me this time.

We had strawberries, grapes, small Nutella bread, and Malaysian fried banana cake for dessert.





Healthy nuts every day.


I love nuts. They are an easy healthy snack, and nuts covered with chocolate are just too delicious. For obvious reasons, I am not allowed to eat the ones with chocolate at the moment, but I eat raw nuts on top of my oatmeal every morning and as an evening snack. I like to have a whole collection of different nuts in my kitchen, so I have some different variants to choose from. This is my top five favourite nuts, but I must say it is extremely hard to decide which I like better than the other.

1. Macadamia nuts. Macadamia nuts are the best! They are very expensive though, which is the reason why I am not really buying them that often. They are for special occasions.

2. Pecans. I have been eating these for the past couple of days, and I am not getting tired of them at all. I definitely need to buy more.

3. Pine nuts. These are especially good when they are roasted on the pan. Perfect for topping or in a salad.

4. Brazil nuts. These nuts are huge, but easy to chop into smaller pieces more appropriate for topping.

5. Cashews. These nuts have a kind of buttery taste, which is why I like them better roasted, as it gives them a soft crunch instead.

I use almonds quite often because they are cheaper than many of the nuts listed above.

These are my top five favourite nuts, but there are lots of other nuts to choose from if you don’t share the same taste as me, for example hazelnuts, peanuts, chestnuts, pistachios, and walnuts.


Morning oats with almonds and blueberries.


Skyr (Icelandic dairy product, similar to strained yogurt) with brazil nuts and blueberries.


Indian food 1

When you have been following a strict diet plan for four weeks without any cheat meals you start to crave something else than what’s on your plan. So far, I haven’t found it very difficult to follow a diet plan because it has become a habit to eat healthy and weight all my food. BUT I am craving Indian food. Seriously Indian food!? I didn’t eat a lot of it before, except when I was on exchange in Vietnam last year, but now I want to eat it every day haha. I have self-discipline enough to keep it to looking at delicious Pinterest photos and scrolling through the recipes, but still, it’s strange. I would have imagined the craving for nutella, cake and candy would come first.


I first heard about proats, which is protein oats, from my fitness teammate. She had this for breakfast, and this morning I felt like trying it myself.

Right now, I am in a good rhythm where I get up, eat my cooked oatmeal and drink a cup of coffee. There is no better way to start the day, and my day starts like this everyday.

This morning, I chose to mix my double choco protein powder with my oats and water. It was seriously good, giving the oats some chocolate taste. Topped with almonds and blueberries.



Mexican lunch.

MEXICAN TORTILLAS with meat, salad, tomatoes, avocado, and cucumber. Aaaand hot salsa of course. This is my favourite food! The pills are Omega 3 supplements. All this together with a banana and a proten shake is a perfect post workout/pre work lunch. Now I will be completely full until dinner time.
