EVERYDAY HAPPINESS

It’s Monday and I feel so good! I handed in one exam last Monday, and was at another exam Friday, and now I only have 2 more left, but now there’s more time for relaxing and Christmas. I’ve had a lovely past week, how about you?

And I’m looking forward to the upcoming as well. Today I’m going to spend time with a good friend, on this week it’s also time for Christmas in Tivoli with mine and my boyfriend’s families, and I am thinking time for a lot more relaxing and being in the Christmas spirit!


I’ve been journalling and reflecting about the past year and what I have learned, and also about some of the things I want to pursue for the New Year. Ps, I’m trying to get more into the Bullet Journal thing, and Emma has made a lovely blogpost about it (Danish) if there’s others who are interested!

I received this beautiful bronzing powder as an early Christmas present from the sweet girls from Miild, and it really helps my skin to look more glowy rather than pale and white during the winter time, I love it!

I’ve been drinking matcha latte’s and snacking while preparing for the exams <3

 

This Sunday was oh so lovely! (Especially after 10 hours of work at Saturday). First I slept for a long time which was so lovely, then I found a winner for the competition about a giftcard to Bleschu, and I felt beyond grateful for how many wonderful people who had participated in the competition! Then I participated in a lovely workshop held by sweet Carolina, where I learned a lot about the skin. And not long after that my mom, grandma and littlesister came by with Christmas cakes (æbleskiver) and for a cup of tea <3

EVERYDAY HAPPINESS

Monday and the last week filled with everyday happiness (and a lot of exam preparations), nonetheless it was still very lovely with lots of matcha latte’s, tea, cozy indoor time, tea with my mom and Christmas coziness with my friends!

I’ve been practicing yoga at home in my living room because I just seem to be a bit too lazy to get myself outside in the cold weather…

I’ve written gratitude lists and also full moon reflections about the past years on December 3rd

I’ve used some of all my lovely natural products! I also received the most beautiful bronzing powder, from the sweet girls from Miild, as an early Christmas present – which I’m so grateful for <3

I’ve been doing some more yoga in my new Yogamii yoga clothing (which I was gifted), and I still have a discount code for you for their clothing. Use the code “Camilla15” and get 15% off on all items on Yogamii’s website.

I’ve been drinking lots of matcha latte’s and tea this week. Btw, I spilled matcha latte all over my plant after taking this photo (but I guess if it’s healthy for my, then it’s probably also good for the plant 😉 )

How was your week? And are you up to any exciting things this week?

Monday and time to look back on some of the happy moments from the past week!

On Tuesday I was out with Cathrine filming yoga videos all day – keep an eye out, exciting things are coming!

I received my Gua Sha from greenbeautysupplies and have been using it to give myself a facial massage every morning, and I love that little self-care ritual <3

I’m telling myself that this (dates, peanutbutter and peanuts) is a healthy snack, however, considering the amount of these that I’m eating, it probably ain’t that healthy any longer, but I just can’t help myself they are seriously soooo good!

I finally threw out my old, torn apart phone case where I kept all my cards in and invested in a beautiful cork wallet where I can now keep all my cards

How was your week?

Then it became Monday and time to look back at some of the everyday happiness moments from the past week! I haven’t gotten pictures of everything, because I also had some lovely time with a chai latte with a friend, a chai latte with my mom (yes, chai latte is just lovely at this time of the year if you ask me), and I spend Friday night home at my parents house just chilling and relaxing – lovely week.

I’ve been drinking plenty of water from this giant glass, and I’m also trying to add lemons and cucumbers into my water as well these days

I’ve had some relaxing evenings with candles, crystals and journalling <3

I made a little insta post to encourage people to remember their own reusable bags whenever they are out to minimise the amount of plastic bags we use – take care of the Planet through this very simple action <3

I’ve had a meeting with Cathrine and catched up after I’ve returned home from Thailand and she has returned home from her yoga retreat at Bali

Most of my Sunday was spent on the couch relaxing and drinking tea, but I also took a little trip to LØS Market in Copenhagen to stock up on a few things (I am in love with that place!)

How was your week?

EVERYDAY HAPPINESS

Så blev det mandag og tid til at kigge tilbage på sidste uges glæder. Jeg har ikke vildt mange billeder, da en del af ugen også blev tilbragt i Thailand, hvor vi først kom hjem fra sent torsdag aften og jeg har været på arbejde både lørdag og søndag.

/Then it became Monday and time to look back at the past week’s small happy moments. I do not have many pictures from the past week since I was still in Thailand, and first got home late Thursday evening and both Saturday and Sunday I was at work.

I Thailand købte jeg den fineste lille elefant ved den Store Buddha, hvor pengene gik til et nyt byggeprojekt lavet af den buddhistiske organisation, samt en fin træ kam lavet af en mand i Phuket Old Town

/In Thailand I bought a little elephant near the Big Buddha, where the money went into a new building project made by  the Buddhistic organisation, and a lovely tree comb made by a man in Phuket Old Town

Da jeg kom hjem fra ferie blev jeg ovenud begejstret for de mange fine nye blade der var kommet på min plante!

/When I returned home from holiday I got overly excited about the new leaves on my plant!

Efter at have fået en skuffende kanelsnegl i Thailand havde jeg sagt til min kæreste at når vi kom hjem skulle vi altså ud og hygge os og have fat i en rigtig kanelsnegl, disse skønne kanelsnegle blev indtaget på Espresso House sammen med en skøn kop chai latte på havremælk <3

/After a disappointing cinnamon bun in Thailand I had told my boyfriend that when we got home we needed to go out and get a real good cinnamon bun. So we went to Espresso House and got these lovely cinnamon buns and a lovely chai latte on oat milk <3 

Og vi er i sandhed kommet hjem til noget rigtigt vådt efterårsvejr, men jeg klager ikke. På flyturen hjem fra Thailand mellemlandede vi i Rusland hvor der var -3 grader(!), så det danske vejr er jo ingenting i forhold til derovre.

/And we have truly returned to some wet fall weather, but I’m not complaining. On our flight back home from Thailand we had a transfer flight in Russia where there was -3 degrees(!), so I’ve nothing to complain about here.

Hvordan var din forgangne uge?

Inspirering people

SURROUND YOURSELF WITH INSPIRERING PEOPLE

I dag mødtes jeg med sødeste Ida og Carolina. Ida kender jeg jo allerede, men det var første gang jeg mødte Carolina. Men Ida kendte jeg heller ikke for lidt over et halvt år siden. I går mødtes jeg med Emelie, og for noget tid siden var det Anna jeg mødtes med for første gang.

Hvad der ligger til fælles for alle disse nye venskaber, er at det er mennesker jeg har fundet gennem Instagram. Min mor og søster synes at det at mødes med nogle gennem Instagram er noget spøjst noget, men jeg synes virkelig det er fantastisk. Det er den nemmeste måde at finde mennesker med samme interesserer som dig på, og hvem ved – måske du får et fantastisk nyt venskab ud af det!

Jeg kan kun anbefale det. Og jeg ville lige give et stort skud ud til alle de seje og inspirerende kvinder som jeg først har mødt gennem Instagram og derefter i virkeligheden.

Bare lige en hurtig aftentanke og lidt taknemmelighed over alle de skønne nye mennesker jeg har mødt! Hav en fantastisk aften.

English:
Today I met with sweet Ida and Carolina. Ida I already knew, but it was the first time I met Carolina. But I didn’t know Ida half a year ago. Yesterday I met up with Emelie, and some while ago it was the first time I met Anna.

What all these meetings have in common is that they are all people whom I’ve met through Instagram. My mom and sister think it’s a bit weird meeting people through Instagram, but I think it’s amazing. It’s the easiest way to find people with the same interests as you, and who knows – you might get a new fantastic friendship out of it!

I can only recommend it. And I just want to give a big shoutout to all the cool and inspirering women I’ve met first through Instagram and then in real life.

Just a little evening thought and feeling extremely grateful for all the wonderful new people I’ve met! Have a lovely evening.

Så er det mandag, og tid til endnu en omgang af den forgangne uges små og store glæder!

/It’s Monday again and time for another round of the past week’s small and big joys!

Jeg var inde og se dokumentaren River Blue i  Empire Bio til et arrangement som Sustain Daily afholdte. Efterfølgende var der lidt bæredygtig tøj debat og after party hos Res Res lige overfor biografen.

/I went to see the documentary River Blue in Empire Bio which was an event hosted by Sustain Daily. Afterwards there was a little debate about sustainable clothing production and an after party at Res Res.

Jeg har vidst allerede nævnt et par gange, at jeg er vilde med de her sunde snickers. Forleden prøvede jeg at lave dem til små snickers kugler, dog uden chokolade ovenpå, og de var stadig mega gode!

/I think I’ve already mentioned how much I love these healthy snickers. The other day I tried to make some small snickers ball, but without chocolate on top, and they were still so good!

Jeg snuppede en Asthanga yoga klasse i DoYoga’s fine studie på Vesterbrogade – og det var skønt!

/I went for an Asthanga yoga class in DoYoga’s lovely studio at Vesterbrogade – and it was wonderful!

Jeg havde også besøg af sødeste Ida til te og croissant, snak og en god lang gå tur <3

/ I also got a visit from sweet Ida for a cup of tea and a croissant, some talking and a long good walk <3 

Jeg ved godt jeg er late-to-the-game, men jeg har først lige opdaget figner – og jeg er vild med dem!

/I know that I’m late-to-the-game, but I’ve just discovered figs – and I love them!

Søndag blev brugt på en masse forberedelse til den kommende uge (vasket tøj, meal prep, handlet ind og læst lidt lektier), men blev også brugt på ren afslapning, lidt hjemme yoga og masser af te <3

/ Sunday was spend with a lot of preparation for this week (washed clothes, meal prepping, bought groceries and read some homeworks), but it was also spend relaxing, some yoga at home and lots of tea <3


Hvordan var din uge?

EVERYDAY HAPPINESS

Det er ved at være noget tid siden at jeg sidst lavede en udgivelse af ‘everyday happiness’ (eller hverdagsglæde), men det vil jeg begynde på igen, for det er simpelthen noget jeg elsker at følge med i hos andre bloggere, og så kan jeg glædes over hverdagens glæder igen. Denne omgang indeholder også lidt mere af mine nye rutiner som jeg er blevet ualmindeligt glad for at have implementeret, og som måske kan inspirere nogle af jer derude!

It has been some times since I last posted an ‘everyday happiness’ post, but I want to start doing it again, because I love following these blog posts from other bloggers, and then I get to experience the joy of the experiences once again. This round also contains some of my new routines which I’m so happy about having implemented in my life, and which might inspire some of you guys!

Jeg har genfundet min glæde for wellness og selvforkælelse, og at passe rigtig godt på min krop både i form af ydre og indre pleje. Her har jeg for nyligt opdaget rasul ler gennem Carolina, og så er jeg blevet magisk fascineret af krystaller igen (noget jeg nok altid har været, men ikke helt har ville kendes ved i en lang periode. Men må indrømme, jeg har været trofast WITCH-blad fan i mine unge år, og alt hvad der har med magi og spiritualitet at gøre, er jeg bare virkelig betaget af).

I’ve rebound my joy for wellness and selfcare, and I’m taking good care of my body both internally and externally. I have recently discovered morrocan soap clay through Carolina, and I’ve also become magically fascinated by crystals again (something I think I’ve always been, but wouldn’t recognize for a long time. But I gotta admit it, I’ve been a WITCH-magazine fan throughout all of my younger years, and I’m completely fascinated with everything that has to do with magic and spirituality).

Derudover er jeg blevet helt igennem vild med yoga og meditation! Det er noget jeg har leget lidt med fra tid til anden igennem mange år, men nu kan jeg virkelig mærke at jeg er blevet elle vild med det. Også rimelig perfekt, når jeg nu skal til at være Personlig Assistent for fantastiske Cathrine, som netop har afholdt det fineste yoga retreat på Samsø!

I have also become completely in love with yoga and meditation! It’s something I have been flirting with throughout many years but haven’t gotten into something serious with, but now I can truly feel that I have fell completely in love with it. And what a timing, since I’m going to be a Personal Assistent for amazing Cathrine, who has just held a beautiful yoga retreat at Samsø!

Jeg er også blevet almægtig glad for gåture ude i den fantastiske natur, gerne med et inspirerende podcast i ørerne (for tiden er jeg elle vild med Awaken Radio af Connie Chapman, Sustain Daily Podcastet og The Melissa Ambrosini Show af Melissa Ambrosini).

I’ve also become truly happy with walking outside in the amazing nature, and especially with an inspirering podcast in my ears (at the moment I’m listening to Awaken Radio by Connie Chapman, Sustain Daily podcast (Danish) and The Melissa Ambrosini Show by Melissa Ambrosini).

Jeg er sørme også begyndt at juice lidt igen, men jeg mangler opskrift inspiration! Jeg kører nemlig i den samme (dog lækre) opskrift bestående af gulerødder, æbler og ingefær. Så hvis du har en god en, gerne en grøn en af slagsen, så giv endelig lyd!

I’ve also fell in love with juicing a bit again, but I need some new recipe inspiration! I’ve become stuck with the same old (yet delicious) recipe consisting of carrots, apples and ginger. So if you have a good one, especially a green one, please just comment! 

Hvis du ikke allerede har bemærket det, er jeg blevet ret fascineret af det der ayurveda (indisk lægevidenskabs filosofi). Min nyeste bog indenfor den genre er denne fine “et pukka liv” skrevet af Sebastian Pole som er grundlæggeren af te-firmaet Pukka. Den er fyldt med god viden, tips og tricks!

If you haven’t already noticed it, I have become quiet fascinated with ayurveda (Indian medicine philosophy). My recent read in this genre is this pretty book “A pukka life” written by Sebastian Pole which is the founder of the tea-company Pukka. It’s filled with awesome knowledge, tips and tricks!

Og så en af de største glæder! I fredags afholdte jeg mit første TRASH & TALK event med Clean Up Copenhagen. Vi var kun 3 personer, men vi fik samlet masser af skrald sammen, og så blev vi mødt af en masse mennesker der smilede, gav os thumbs up og kom over og roste os for vores arbejde. SÅ fedt! Så, hvis du vil med til det næste event, så hold øje med Clean Up Copenhagen’s Facebook side!

And now time for one of the biggest joys! This Friday I held my first TRASH & TALK event with Clean Up Copehagen. We were only 3 persons, but we collected a lot of trash, and we were met by so many kind people who smiled at us, gave us thumbs up and came over and said that we did a great thing. So awesome! So, if you want to join the next event, just keep an eye out for Clean Up Copenhagen’s Facebook page

WRITE DOWN WHAT YOU ARE GRATEFUL FOR

Jeg ville lige komme med en lille opfordring. Prøv at sæt dig ned i dag og skriv 10 ting (eller flere) ned, som du er taknemmelig for. Og luk så lige øjnene hver gang du har skrevet en ting ned, og føl taknemmeligheden. Hvis du begynder at gøre dette til en daglig vane, så vil du hurtigt indse hvor positiv en virkning det kan have på dit liv.
Hav en skøn weekend!

I just wanted to come with a little suggestion. Try sitting down today and write 10 things (or more) down, which you are grateful for. Then close your eyes when you’ve written a thing down, and really feel grateful. If you start making this a daily habit, you’ll quickly see what a positive impact it will have on your life.
Have a wonderful weekend!

Jeg blev kontaktet af en mindre visuel story-telling forretning her forleden, kaldet Tremendousness. Firmaet prøver at lave komplekse ting mere forståelige for folk ved hjælp af deres video. De spurgte mig om jeg ikke ville se deres video angående taknemmelighed. Det gjorde jeg så, og jeg synes at videoen er så fin, og forklarer super enkelt, hvor stor en positiv virkning at det at have en taknemmelig attitude, kan gøre dig sundere og gladere. Så jeg synes helt klart at I skal tjekke den ud, den varer kun lige 2 minutter. Udover taknemmelighedsemnet så laver de videoer om alt muligt, så det er bestemt værd at tjekke ud hvis man hurtigt vil blive lidt klogere på forskellige emner.

I was contacted by a smaller visual story-telling company here the other day, called Tremendousness. The company tries to make complex things more understandable for people through their videos. They asked me if I wanted to check out there video about Gratitude. I did, and I truly think it is a great little video, which very easily explains you, how much of a positive impact having a grateful attitude, can have on your overall health and happiness. So I definitely think you should check it out, it only last 2 minutes. Beside the video about Gratitude, they make videos about all different kind of subjects, which you can easily learn more about.
