MORNING AND MIDNIGHT

When the spring is just around the corner, and you try to cut sugar as much as you can, let me give you an advice and share this delicious recipe. Specially if you are chocolate addicted, you gonna love it! I am that kind of person that could eat sweet things for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Pancakes, cookies, cakes, chocolate whatever… I am sugar addicted that’s for sure. But how to deal with that kind of issue knowing that this little white ‘poison’ is not good for your health and of course for your weight loss. Let me share with you this yummy, organic, vegan chocolate spread recipe, where I used only healthy ingredients. It is super simple and for proportions you can just use any size cup. So to start with, you will need to decide what kind of nuts you like. I went for almonds this time (hazelnuts are good as well). Thus: 1 cup of almonds, 1/3 cup maple syrup, 1/4 cup raw cacao, 1/4 cup water, 2 table spoons of pure coconut oil, pinch of salt. After you have all ingredients, you just use a hand blender, which gonna take some time, but after all, trust me you gonna love it! Perfect for breakfast or as midnight snack.

HELLO PARIS





Sometimes, routine and crazy lifestyle these days can empty our brains without even realising it. For me, life is not just the matter of eating, sleeping, going to work or whatever. I just realised that I cannot remember when was the last time I red a nice book, or let my brain to relax. And this is not good, that just kills my creativity and I believe most of us would feel the same way. So, what to do when you feel like you are stuck and cannot even dream. Well, go to Paris! That’s right… if you have a creative mind, you will ‘blossom’ like a flower again, of just seeing all the beautiful museums, architecture and people, I mean stylish people. That is just a big source of inspiration! I am currently on trend forecasting trip in Paris, and enjoying every single minute of it. It just makes me happy, feel creative and I am taking a full luggage of new ideas with me.

And if you are not into architecture or art, there are so many other things to enjoy. Just getting the spirit of Parisian life style is always nice. And let me tell you, the food, the wine and french pastries are on top. My gym shoes are already waiting for me when I am back in Copenhagen.

The city is the best place to shop and I personally love to search for a small vintage shops, so I know I can get some very unique pieces with a smell of Paris. And that is the best thing to do if you want to run away from tourists and enjoy small but beautiful things.

DIY

Turn your old loafers into new, just by adding some simple details. You can choose any accessories, from fur pieces, lace ribbon or velvet. Just use your imagination and be creative. The only tool I used for this project was a glue gun, but maybe you can just use some clips in case you want to play with different accessories. That was the most easy and fast DIY project I have ever made, so if you like it go for it!

SWEET HEARTS

Good morning sweet hearts, you might think I am all into Valentines day mood, which is getting closer. Well I just feel like wearing more prints recently, reminding me of warm summer days. I kind of missed light feminine fabrics, with some romantic prints, despite the fact that it is still winter and I am freezing like crazy all the time. But if you are spending your days, in a cozy and warm office at work, you can definitely combine it with a nice blazer or cardigan on top. Style it with black pants or a skirt to pop it out and you are ready for day!

FEW SHADES OF BLUE

Choosing the right color can have a great impact on your outfit. Specially now, in the winter, when we need some extra sun light, most of us might feel tired and exhausted. The right color can make you look more fresh and feel happy during this cold and hard period. I was wearing black most of the time recently, and I can feel I am quite tired of it. So, I went for one color theme and chose some bluish tones. You can definitely mix few (same color) pieces in one outfit, but just make sure that they differ in fabric composition. Different garments in the same color theme can really make a statement. And don’t forget some accessories, to make it more eye catching. Find the color matching your skin tone or eyes, and try playing with your wardrobe.

WITH LOVE


Few days til Christmas, and we are running around, shopping and finding last presents for our loved ones. Surprisingly, I was able to buy it all “on time” this year, since I do it very last minute normally. So, what about some wrapping ideas? Every year, I go for some different themes, and I love to add little details from the nature. This year I wanted to keep a very light blue tones, combining it with some decorative paper. And of course fir branches gives that wintery Christmas sense. It is simple, Scandinavian and made with love!
