Busiest Time Of My Life

I know that December is always a busy month for basically everybody, but I really feel like December this year is totally crazy, even though I've finished shopping for Christmas presents and my exam is over, I still have a ton of stuff I need to finish before 2014 begins. And that's why my kitchen table looks like this at the moment....

So this is 1 final project in the making + 4 assignments that are due in February + some other small assignments you know kinda thrown in there......, but since I'm occupied until then with, Christmas, New year, School, being seconded to another pharmacy for a week, family and a fiancé in another country. 
I kinda have to finish it all now. 
That's why you guys have to excuse me if I'm really lousy on the posting in here, until I get my business straight the next 3 weeks! 
Wish you all a less chaotic evening than mine :)

Online Window Shopping

I'm home with a stomachache, so I'm sitting here with my hot water bottle and doing some online window shopping! It's all from H&M and because this is the month of no money I found these pieces in the sales section. Both affordable and of course they would fit right into my closet ;) But the actual shopping have to wait until after new-year.


H&M



Winter Jacket

I totally forgot to show my new winter jacket!
It's a Pajar Cougar down parka, with fur trim and lining on the hood. I got it as a birthday gift from my parents and I LOVE IT. It's super nice and warm, I'm always one of those girls that are cold, but with this on I'm never cold. It's also water and wind proof so it will keep me warm and dry all winter long.
Pictures with it on coming some time later :)

Christmas Shopping?

Hi guys! I have been so busy the last two weeks. I had an exam that is finally over! I'm not gonna know the result until mid March tho, so that's a bummer! But anyways... The last couple of days I was supposed to be Christmas shopping and of course i found a gift or two, but it can't come as a surprise that I bought something for myself, even tho I told myself NO shopping until AFTER December. Apparently I'm not so well disciplined huh?
I found a nice black bag from H&M, this is gonna get me through the winter months and a Pieces clutch too, but I only bought that one because it was on sale and I don't have one in that color. I found a belt in Pieces too and thought and it was perfect for the holidays with all the sparkle going on, but that was not enough sparkle because to top it off I bought Ciatés Antique Brooch. I'm really loving this nail polish right now, it's perfect for any occasion giving life to your nails, without being too much.


So now I'm done with my Christmas shopping and I have managed to empty my bank account, December is just lovely. Oh that reminds me, I love the way our town is all covered in tiny lights and Christmas decorations, makes it much nicer even tho it's dark outside. Gets you right in the Christmas spirit :)

Trip to Lisbon

So here is the post I thought i had posted but actually I had only saved!

I promised to tell you guys about my trip to Lisbon, the gift that my BF, Mado gave to me on my 23rd birthday. After celebrating my birthday the day before, we got up early and went to Kastrup, Copenhagen Airport and we were on our way to Lisbon.

After a small amount of sleep, one overlay, overexcitment and a 5 something hour flight, we were both ready to go relax at our hotel when we landed. But as unlucky as I am, my suitcase hadn't arrived, it was stuck i Munich, with all my clothes and eveything else i had packed for the trip. So there was nothing to do but go to the hotel without it. When we arrived i was amazed! There, in the centre of Lisbon was a castle ruin, and part of that ruin is rebuild as a hotel, this is where Mado had made our reservation. Imagine staying in the ruins of an old european castle. It was a beautiful place and very unique.
Lisbon is a beautiful old city going all the way to the water, with small cozy cafes and restaurant. There is lots to see and you get a good work out too with walking up and down some of the steep streets.
We weren't out much the first day, exhausted as we were.

The next morning we got woken up by approximatly 10 peacocks having a blast in the hotel garden, right outside our blacony, peacocks are really beautiful birds, but they don't sound as the look, they make an awful lot of noise! We ate breakfast in the garden, surounded by theese beautiful, majestic birds it was an experience I will never forget. We walked around Lisbon and decided to visit the ruins of the castle. There was a beautiful view from the castle walls showing almost the entire city of  Lisbon, we decided to take a picture there. Mado set up the camera and when he came closer to me he said he had one more gift for me.
It was a pair of binoculars, he told me to try them out, so i looked out at the city. And that's when he put a ring right in my line of vision.

So suddenly i was engaged, it was crazy, telling my parents, telling my friends and family (Half of them thought it was a joke?!) It was the most amazing day in my life and i know i have yet many more to come, with this amazing man, that is now my fiancé! 
The rest of our days in Lisbon was a blur, we went all kinds of different places, saw a lot of things, ate A LOT of delicious food and generally spend a lot of time in 7th heaven.... Sometimes when i think back, i still can't believe that he actually proposed.


I love you, you are my everything <3

.....

Okay okay, how did I react???
Well, first i didn't believe it and my first words was no no no...(I'm really embarrassing to have around you know?) Because I was really not getting it, oblivious as I am! Then came all the hugs and kisses as it dawned on me what was happening, but he actually had to ask me: "So what is the answer?" and of course it was YES! A million times YES! Forever...

Confused!

Hi guys!
Okay so this is one of those days where I'm very confused, it's so bad that I go to work even though I'm off, workaholic much? -_-, But hey I have to look at the bright side of it right, at least I got up early and have the whole day to do stuff!! And there's a ton of stuff to do, I have a birthday to attend in the weekend and it's in Sweden so I need to pack and get everything ready. Besides that I like to leave the house clean, so theres laundry and all that stuff that needs to be done. But most importantly, my PC is dying so I need to fix it! It's getting formatting and reinstalled as I'm typing (I'm using my school PC in the meantime), I've been having problems with it for a while now so it was time....! Bye bye software errors!
Another thing that is off my plate is my project proposal, it was submitted Friday and hopefully I will get some feedback before I go to school again in January. Oh and I have started on my Christmas presents, finally, but I'm having a hard time finding something for my parents, because they never need anything, if I ask my mom: "What should I buy you?", she will say: "Oh, I don't really want anything you can just give one of those little hand sanitizers that will be fine..." Like come on mom what's exciting about that!!! I don't even wanna mention what my dad will say, for the last 15 years it has been "I don't want anything big, just a Mercedes, that would make me happy"... I have no chance.
So I have to figure something out that they need but don't know about haha!
So now I will go do all my little chores.
Talk to you later ;)

Basics | Jeans

I went shopping in my lunchbreak, the weather was soo lovely and I had time, since its my study-day. Of course it's raining now, since it's Denmark, you can never trust the weather!
Anyways... I was in some serious need of jeans, basic jeans, basic colors. For some reason I never buy just normal jeans with no detailing, so today it was jeans hunting day!
I found 3 pairs of jeans in H&M for 179 DKK each. Great deal, the only color I'm missing is grey for the fall.

But i can't go shopping and not look at other things you know. I saw this cute scarf on sale in Vero Moda and I mean 40 DKK come on, when will i ever get that deal again! After that i looked in Pieces and found some beautiful earrings. Couldn't resist.

So now NO SHOPPING allowed until after December, Ugh, Christmas presents are killing me really. I love getting presents you know, but when there's a time limit I get stressed! I really have to get started, but there's no time. Hopefully one day during the next few weeks I will get it done.
I really hope no one stresses like i do about this, it's on the verge of crazy hahaaha..
So no more rambeling from me, take care <3

Time Flies By So Fast

I can't keep a track of time! Its already November and I didn't do half of the things I had to in October (trying not to sound stressed at all!). Today I've spend some time with one of my girlfriends I haven't seen for a while, it's been lots of fun, shopping, good food and girl talk! I'm so happy to be feeling better the last couple of days because I've had a sore throat, no voice and feeling drowsy from Monday to Wednesday. I even stayed home from work for 2 days which I never do, but kind of hard to talk with customers when having no voice. 
On my list of things I need to do, and which is urgent is buying Christmas presents, finishing the base of my project which is due this Monday and getting mentally ready for an exam start December. That reminds me that I still have a thing or two to tell you guys, about my birthday... I'll get around to that ASAP! 
Right now I'm in the train on my way home, you got to love public transportation, there isn't room to stand, not even talking about sitting and I thought I could eat my sushi. Well that's what happens...
Hope you had a lovely weekend so far!
XO

Birthday Suprise From My BF


Hello, how are you all doing?
I'm doing good, real good :D So the past 2 weeks have been amazing! As you know I spend my birthday with my BF. He had told me to pack shorts and bikinis, which doesn't go with the season...! So of course when I got there Wednesday afternoon I was really curious about what he had planned (my birthday was Thursday). We invited his parents over so we could all celebrate together, and it was really nice, his mom had baked a delicious cake for me and everything, which was super sweet of her. Plus they all had presents for me, I got everything I had wished for and more because when it came on my BF's present it was so much more than I expected, he was the last one to give me my present and what he gave me was a piece of paper with a bow on. When I opened the paper it was 2 plane tickets to Lisbon, Portugal! That was probably the most exciting birthday present I had ever gotten! Mini vacation for 5 days with the one I love, I couldn't ask for more.
But his surprises didn't stop there, what happened in those 5 days I really have to make a post by it self.  I'm overwhelmed and  so happy it's impossible to explain. I really wish for everyone to experience having moments like this, with loved ones, just being happy.

Wish You all a lovely weekend , I have work tomorrow and it's already way too late for me to be up!
Good night <3

In the meantime, anyone starting to stress about Christmas presents? Because I'm really starting to think I don't have time enough with all the business going on around here! I like to have my presents bought and wrapped before December, not so sure that's going to happen this year though, tooooo damn busy. Now i have homework to do... Hope you all had an AMAZING weekend, talk to you soon :D

Update

Hi guys...I just wanted to do a quick update before I go to bed! I've had an amazing week, with so many surprises, joy and love that I can't describe. I've been in Lisbon, Portugal for the past 5 days, and while there something exciting happened (I'll tell you all about it later!). I came home yesterday, at 3 A.M. and had to get up and work at 7 A.M. this morning. I'm beat! So I hope you all understand that I really want to go to bed, and sleep, like NOW! 

....ZzzZzzzZzZzzz....

Hopefully tomorrow I'll have the time and energy to tell you about it all.
Have a good night

In Love With Fall

 Today i wanted something casual and comfy so i paired ripped jeans with a poncho and  converse shoes.

What I'm Wearing:
No name Poncho (from a random supermarket)
Sisters Point Jeans
Converse All Stars Shoes
H&M White Basic Long-sleeved T-shirt  


So as everyone of you probably noticed, it's fall, it's starting to get cold, the leaves are changing colors to beautiful reds, oranges and yellows.. I love this season where everything changes and becomes colorful in a whole different way than in the spring and summer. I love the sunny September blues skies, and low temperatures which makes you want to cozy up with a blanket, a cup of hot chocolate and a good movie. It’s also the perfect time to wear lovely sweaters, fluffy scarves, hats, gloves and sexy boots! Fall is most definitely the season I love the most, it's definitely my season - Since I’m born in October... Actually it's my birthday in 2 days and I can't wait! It's better than Christmas and New Years all together because I’m going to spend it with the most amazing person my BF, it's going to be great. I'm super curious as to what he has planned because he’s told me to pack all kinds of clothes that I have no idea how I should be able to use with the cold weather we are having right now, so can't wait to see what the surprise is.
Today I’m trying to finish the base of my assignment so I can get it out of the way. I hate stressing about it but it’s hanging over my head like one of those pianos in the cartoons, and I’m really afraid that 1 week before deadline that piano is going to come crashing down. But I’ve told myself, NO STRESS, It’s not allowed and I have to remember to enjoy myself. That’s why this weekend I’ve been to a going away party for a friend that is moving to the states, which is so surreal, but hey we got to embrace the opportunities life throws at us :) and the next day I went to Legoland – Which is a Lego theme park, you know like kids Lego building blocks, where there are rides and all kinds of fun – I went there with a group of friends and it was nice to let everything go, have fun and kinda be a kid again lol…Tonight I have movie night with my colleagues, we are going to watch “Kvinden I Buret”, which is a Danish movie, the English title is “The Keeper of Lost Causes” and I’m really looking forward to it. Now I’m gonna go back to my assignment and hope (cross your fingers) that I will finish the base today!

Have a great Tuesday

Long Time No See


Me Being Silly :)
Sorry for being M.I.A. the past week but I've just been so busy! I've had meetings and courses after work a lot of days. For instance we got the brand Eucerin in our pharmacy and had an evening course yesterday to get to know the products. It was so nice to eat some good food, learn about the products and of course get a little present.. That's always the best part haha!
But during the weekend my sisters moved in with me, so we have been making room for their stuff and just hanging out, having fun and talking, which have been really nice. But on top of all that I have a BIG assignment, that counts as one of my final exams, and I have a deadline November 3rd. for the main goals of the assignment! Stress!! So sorry if I'm not updating so regularly, I will try to be better about it, if I can.

 Have an amazing Tuesday evening

Fall Soundtrack 2013



Good morning!! Did you all sleep well? I did, just put on my favourite song lately. When I hear this song I get so much energy I can't explain it. I wanna dance, sing, jump, scream, act crazy… All those things at the same time. I've been listening to this song every morning for the past weak since the release and it never fails. I jump put of bed, hahah!
Have a great Tuesday :)

Relaxing Day + Weekend!


How are you guys? I'm great :D I've had a great time with great company the last couple of days, and of course I did a little shopping too!
 Thursday I went out to visit one of my closest girlfriends, known her forever. We went around town a little, looked at a couple of shops, and found this amazing deal:

They were 70 % off ,I really couldn't resist especially when I don't have any boots that color at all. We both bought a pair. So now I'm 100% fall ready - Um, except I still need a jacket haha!
After that we went to a little sushi restaurant and got some amazing sushi, yum, could eat some right now! But we had a cozy evening, it's so nice to catch up and just have some girl time.

Friday my BF came, so I was busy all weekend spending time with him 
I really hope you all had an amazing weekend, don't let Monday get you ;)

Why I don't drink Milk?


I mentioned in a earlier post that I don't drink milk, and some have probably been wondering why??
The first thing that most people think is that I'm lactose intolerant, but I'm not, not that I know of anyway.
The reason is that I break out so bad when I drink milk, I get acne!

So approximately 3 years ago I started getting acne, at the age of 20 years old, I never really had it before, I had a zit here and there but never anything special, never anything that had any significance for me. But then I hit 20 and started having cystic acne (The kind that is under the skin and REALLY hurts!), so I went to the doctor because I didn't know what else to do, it was really bad I had it basically in my whole face. The doctor immediately gave me antibiotics and when I started taking them it really helped, is was gone, only the scars was left. The cure was for 3 months and after that I stopped, the problem was it came back, full tilt. Like I was never on the antibiotic cure.

So when that didn't work I tired all kinds of creams, lotions, everything that you can try.
One day I was watching videos on Youtube, and I saw a video about this guy who said something about he found out his breakouts came from milk, so he stopped drinking it. Then I thought, I can try that, it won't hurt me so let's give it a go. I didn't drink milk for a month and I could see a significant change, I couldn't believe it, so I started drinking milk again and it came back. When I told the doctor he didn't believe me -  He didn't straight out tell me I was lying, but he didn't believe me - but I completely stopped after that.

Now my skin has gotten soooo much better, I don't have acne, but I still get pimples. I've thought about stopping with dairy all together, so I'm giving that a try now, let's see if it will get even better. I'll give you an update on that later.

So I have no guarantee for that this works, or that is the reason to acne, but you can always give it a try.
Have  a great Thursday

Workout Routine

I live in a different world than most when it comes to working out and eating healthy, because I want to gain weight not lose it! And that’s why I mostly do muscle building exercises. I do a lot of different ones so here is part of my list…
  • Squats 100
  • Pushups – As many as I can do in 1 min
  • Plank 1 ½ min + Side Plank 2 x 1 min
  • Wall-Sit 2 min
  • Crunches 2 x 25
I started this routine with a extended squat challenge, but I never finished because I could see the muscles forming on my thighs and it was too much for me (Who wants man legs???), I do this 4-6 days a week depending on my schedule and my mood, and it actually works! I gained 2 Kg. Yaaayy :D So I hope for further progress, I’ll update you later on that.
Now I’m gonna do my workout, before eating dinner!  Talk to you guys later

Pretty Little Things


So I went out to buy a little thing for one of my friends and of course I ended up buying something for myself too, sales really are dangerous, they just suck you in! Anyway I found these pretty little earrings from Pilgrim and fell in love instantly!

So 2 pairs for me and a pair for my friend, I really hope she will like them. Well I'm gonna go do an assignment I need to finish for tomorrow.

Fall Shopping



Sooooo I went shopping after the First-Aid course Thursday, and there's really a lot of sales going on in the different shops right now! And we really liiiike that, ohhh yea!! So of course I bought a couple of things, even if they're from the late summer collection I think they will be perfect for my fall wardrobe. Can't wait to use some of these :D




Water


I Have made myself a goal to drink more water! I'm really bad a drinking any kind of fluid during the day. On a good day I drink 1 L, and the normal recommendations are 2 L, so that means I have to double up my intake of water. Which is really hard when you never really feel thirst and when you are busy, you just forget sometimes. Most days I come home from work, and realize the only fluid I have been drinking is my one cup of tea in the morning.

The reason I'm so focused on drinking enough fluid is because it's so important for our bodies. The body consists of up to 60% water, that's more than half! You loose some of that 60% every time you breathe, go to the bathroom, sweat etc. And if you don't replenish it, you will get dehydrated which means,  you can get sick more often, get obstipated, feel tired, get headaches more often and a lot more! So of course it's important to drink enough water, it's the most important basic need after breathing!

Now how do we start drinking more water? Because we all know it's easy to say that now I'm going to drink more water. But it's hard to actually do so. What I do is I take a container that I know can hold a certain amount of water, for instance a water bottle that can contain 0,5 L and then my goal is to drink 4 of those a day. It's much easier to drink more when you have a specific goal.

So now I'm going to go back to my 1,75 L of water I still need to drink today, it's almost as hard as having a second job, haha…
Have a great Sunday!
