My scent

Finding a scent that represents me wasn't an easy job. 
It took me a lot of years, but finally in 2013 I found Gucci Guilty Intense and this has been my signature scent since then.
I love to use it as an everyday perfume to make the start of my day feel a little bit glamorous (even if it sounds silly :P )
I also love to wear it when I go out and on special occasions because it feels just right.
Guilty Intense is elegant, delicate and so feminine.
I love it and that is why I wanted to share one of my little secrets with you.
If you are looking for a intense perfume this is the one ;)

Easter is here, time to reflect, time to take a minute from daily life to do things we otherwise do not have time to.

What are you doing this easter?

We are going to the mountains next week and I am really looking forward to spend time with the kids and with the love of my life <3
Is going to be some skiing, lots of good food, good laughs, good memories, and of course lots of chocolate and candy!
I can't wait :)

Well, wether you are going to the mountains, staying in the city, go skiing or traveling I hope you get some time to relax, experience things that make your life richer and spend time with people you care about, because in the end that is what matters.
Have a great easter time!

Wednesday Blues

I haven't been in the best mood lately, 
there is a lot in my mind and a lot that worries me and sometimes doesn't help to hear that is going to be OK, but even when you are deep down, you have to do something to get up again. Sometimes takes a lot of time an effort and even the smallest and easiest things feels  thousand times harder to do, but you just have to keep fighting and I know that, I can't just give up, even when sometimes it feels like it.

So yesterday I pulled myself out of bed and went for a run, the day was beautiful, the sun was shining, the snow is melting and I could hear the birds singing again... and you know what? that helped. For a moment I kind of saw the light again and I felt blessed. I thought that things could be worse. 
It is hard for me to open myself and share, but this time I did it, it took me a while, but I did it and I realized that I am not alone this time <3


Focus in something that can actually help you feel better, go for a run or a walk, train at home, sit down in a park and look at life, turn the radio on and keep away the silence for a moment. Sometimes you just need to get your thoughts away from your problems.

After a training session make yourself a pick-me-up smoothie:

coconut milk, banana, frozen strawberries topped with Chia seeds and almonds.

And take one day at a time.

I heart avocado

Yes, I love it.
You can eat it at breakfast, lunch, dinner and with snacks. 
It has that healthy fat that your body needs, contains around 20 vitamins and minerals and it tastes so goooood!!!

I usually take some avocados with me and eat it as lunch at the office.

And who doesn't love guacamole!

 And for dinner cook some spaghetti, add pesto, broccoli and avocado,
grate som parmesan cheese and you have a tasty green on green on green dinner :P

  In this post I added avocado to a salmon salad.

Enjoy and have a nice sunday!

I can't have enough of this Chia seed puddings :)
It is so easy to make and tastes so good and creamy, yum!

Coconut milk and chia seeds, then refrigerate over night 
and you have a delicious breakfast.
I topped mine with grapes, blueberries and almonds.
So good AND healthy!

 After a visit to the gym try this pick-me-up smoothie:

Banana, frozen strawberries, fresh pressed orange juice.

Have a nice evening everyone!

In my Shower... and Other Hair Care Products

Hello guys!
Today I want to share with you the hair products I use for healthy and strong hair :)

Like a lot of you, I have been trying many different products among the years, but these are the ones I swear by now.

Last year I discovered Korres Hair line products and I love them. 
The ones I am using now is Almond and linseed shampoo and Sunflower & mountain tea. The conditioner is also Almond and linseed.
(They smell so good)

I try to apply a mask at least twice a week.
I bought the one from Pantene in my trip to Tenerife. It was really cheap and it leaves my hair smooth and hydrated.

I love the hair mask from Moroccan Oil
This one is enriched with argan oil and it smells so good too!

I use my Elixir from Kerastase on the hair ends before bed 
and the days when my hair gets a bit static from wool sweaters or so.

I use my shampoo BC Bonacure from Schwarzkopf Professional from time to time. 
This one cleanses my scalp deeply from the use of sprays, dry shampoo and other hair products.

My Batiste Dry Shampoo is a lifesaver,
it gives volume and is amazing to wear when I don't have half an hour to fix my hair. 

Joico Dry oil Spray is perfect to make your hair shine... the perfect last touch :D

Hope you like this post guys!
Have a nice day :)

Is it Spring, yet?

The snow has disappeared and Oslo is gray again.
I have been dreaming with traveling somewhere sunny and warm... I really miss the sun, so today we went to take some solarium, it helps a little... at least so that my sun powder don't have to do all the job by itself.
 I'm soon feeling transparent here guys, help! :P

I was contemplating the beautiful orquideas I got for my birthday.
Aren't these pretty? :)
Nice with some color in such a gray day ;)

I'm looking forward to spring and summer.
It's going to feel so good to skip the thick bombers, coats and boots.


Have a nice Saturday everyone!!

The winter is back

My day started really early today,
I got a fresh smoothie and a car covered by snow.

Yes, just when all of us Oslo citizens, thought that it was time for spring 
Chione decides to extend our winter just a little bit more ;)
I hope all of you are enjoying the snow because it seems that we are going to see a lot of it at least until next friday!

After work I went to do some exercise and then I headed back home to a delicious meal.
Lucky me :)

(and vanilla and belgian chocolate ice cream for dessert :D )

By the way!
Today was the launch of Caroline's shoe collection for Bianco.
Check her blog here :)

Have a great night!

A visit to Victoria's Secret

Victoria's Secret finally opened in Oslo.
The first boutique opened in Oslo City shopping mall last year.
This second one opened its doors in Karl Johan, 
Oslo's main shopping street.
So of course I had to go and check it out ;)
It is a small boutique like the ones you find in bigger airports.
It sells mainly accessories; 
perfumes, body lotions, bags, panties, etc.

Perfect gifts:

Love this little purse. Perfect for summer!

You can also find a lot of fun underwear like this ones:


Super cute travel accessories

And so many pretty bags <3

If you are near Karl Johan you have to check it out.
So many pretty things!

Have a great evening :)
