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?

EVERYDAY HAPPINESS

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?

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?
/How was your past week?

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!

Gratitude Makes You Healthier

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.

Use Gratitude to get the Life You Want

Jeg har efterhånden erfaret, både fra mig selv og hørt fra andre, at hvis man udviser og føler taknemmelighed overfor de ting man har i sit liv, og de ting man gerne vil have i sit liv, så får man mere af det man gerne vil have. Jeg tror fuldt og fast på at vi skaber vores liv med vores tanker. Vi er selv med til at påvirke hvordan vores liv skal være, og blive.

Hvis du går og er sur og trist hele tiden, og tænker på hvor uretfærdigt det er at du aldrig får eller opnår de ting du gerne vil – jamen, så sker det simpelthen heller ikke. Man må gøre sig et bevidst valg, og ændre sin tankegang.

Prøv dag for dag at tænke mere positivt, udvis mere taknemmelighed, vær glad for livet, vær glad for de mennesker du har i dit liv. Sæt pris på alt! Og når du støder ind i problemer, så se det ikke som verdens undergang, se det som noget der er med til at lære dig noget nyt, og som noget der får dig til at blive stærkere, når du kommer ud på den anden side.
Med det sagt, så vil jeg bare ønske jer alle en fantastisk dag!

I have recognised from myself, and heard from others, that if you show and feel gratitude towards the things that you have in your life, and the things that you want in your life, then you’ll get more of it. I truly believe that we create our own lifes with our thoughts. We are a part of creating how our lifes are, and what it will become.

If you go around and are sad and angry all the time, and think about how unfair your life is, and how you never get or achieve the things that you want – well, then it simply just won’t happen. You need to make a conscious choice, and change your thoughts.

Try day by day to think more positive, show more gratitude, be happy for life, and for the people in your life. Appreciate everything! And when you bump into troubles on your way, do not look at them as the end of the world, look at them as something which are going to teach you something new, and something which will make you stronger once you get out on the other side.
That being said, I wish you all a wonderful day and hope that you will be truly happy!

The importance of being grateful

Skærmbillede 2016-05-11 kl. 13.58.44I 2012 opdagede the bogen ‘The Secret‘ af Rhonda Byrne i London. Og den ændrede mit liv fuldstændig. I bogen forklares konceptet om hvordan man kun kan tiltrække de ting man gerne vil have, ved at være taknemmelig for hvad man allerede har, samt at være taknemmelig for de ting man endnu ikke har, men som man gerne vil have. Denne her tankegang var fuldstændig revolutionerende for mig, og i starten tænkte jeg at det hele var lidt for holistisk for spirituelt for mig – men efter at have prøvet det, og set resultaterne, må jeg erkende at det virker. Jeg praktiserede taknemmelighed dagligt i det år og jeg fik opnået alle de ting jeg gerne ville, det var så vildt! (heriblandt at vinde guld til danmarksmesterskaberne i Show Dance med mit hold, og at få verdens bedste kæreste). Efter et par år glemte jeg dog mere og mere at praktisere det hver dag, indtil jeg for nylig fandt ‘the Five-minute Journal’ som jeg også har skrevet om her. Igen fik jeg fokus på vigtigheden af at være taknemmelig.

I dag samlede jeg så bogen ‘the Magic‘ op (som stort set er den samme som ‘the Secret’), og tog med mig ned i parken for at læse i solskinnet. Igen blev jeg fuldstændig fascineret af tankegangen – og jeg vil nu begynde at praktisere det at være taknemmelig meget mere igen, for jeg har før set og oplevet på egen hånd hvordan mine ønsker går i opfyldelse! Og der er SÅ mange ting jeg gerne vil opleve op opnå, så nu skal jeg bare igang igen.

På den note, vil jeg også sige TAK TAK TAK til alle der læser med herinde. Jeg ved godt at jeg ikke har synderligt mange læsere, men det betyder alverdens meget at der bare er nogle få som følger med, og som jeg håber(!) at jeg kan sprede lidt tankevækkende stof og glæde ud til.

In 2012 I discovered the book ‘the Secret‘ by Rhonda Byrne in London. And it changed my whole life. In the book the concept, about how you can only attract what you want by feeling grateful for what you already have, is explained. And how you can only attract what you want by feeling grateful for what you still do not have yet. This thought was completely revolutionary for me, and in the beginning I thought it was all a bit too spirituel for me – but after having tried it and seen the results, I must acknowledge that it actually works. I practiced gratitude daily for that year, and the things I accomplished and got was amazing! (fx I won gold at the Danish championsship in Show Dance with my team and I got the worlds best boyfriend). After a couple of years I somehow forgot to practice it daily, until I recently discovered ‘the Five-minute Journal’ which I also wrote about here. Once again my focus turned towards being grateful. 

Today I picked up the book ‘the Magic’ (which is almost the same as ‘the Secret’), and I took it with my to the park and read in it in the sunshine. Once again I got completely fascinated by the philosophy behind it – and I now want to start practicing gratitude a lot more, because I have already seen the results that I can get and achieve by myself. And there are SO many things that I want to achieve and experience, so now I just need to get started.

On that note I just want to say THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to all who read my blog. I know that I do not have many readers, but it means so much that just a few people are reading what I am writing. And I really hope that I provide you with some thoughtful material and some posts which can bring you more health and happiness in your life.

Be Grateful

Skærmbillede 2016-04-19 kl. 19.36.54Ved at være mere taknemmelig for de små og store ting i livet, ændrer hele ens liv sig. Det gør en mere positiv og det får dig til at værdsætte alt i livet. Jeg kan bestemt anbefale at begynde at blive mere opmærksom og udøve at være mere taknemmelig for sit liv. Ligesom de smukke blomster her som jeg så på min aften tur hertil aften, intet mindre end fantastisk.
Tak for dette smukke og fantastiske liv!

I have found that being grateful for the small and the big things in life is what changes my whole life. It makes me more positive and makes me appreciate all things in life. I can definitely recommend to start being more aware and being more grateful for life. Just like these beautiful flowers I just saw on my evening walk, simply amazing. 
Thanks for this beautiful and fantastic life!

The Five-Minute Journal

Skærmbillede 2016-04-13 kl. 10.47.03Jeg opdagede denne fantastiske bog, The Five-Minute Journal, gennem min nye favorit youtuber Mimi Ikonn. Mimis mand, Alex Ikonn, har lavet denne bog sammen med deres ven UJ Ramdas. Jeg har elsket taknemlighedsbøger lige siden jeg opdagede The Secret tilbage i 2012, men har ikke haft en i et par år nu. Men udseendet på denne bog og det at det var en taknemlighedsbog, fik mig til at købe den lige med det samme. Så jeg modtog den i morges, og jeg elsker den allerede.

I discovered this wonderful book, The Five-Minute Journal, through my new favourite youtuber Mimi Ikonn. Mimi’s husband, Alex Ikonn, made this journal together with their friend UJ Ramdas. I have loved gratitude journals since I discovered The Secret back in 2012, but I haven’t had one for years. But the look of this one and the fact that it is a gratitude journal, made me buy it right away. So I just got it this morning, and I already love it.

Skærmbillede 2016-04-13 kl. 10.46.44Pointen med en taknemlighedsbog er at du hver dag skriver ting som du er taknemmelige for, og det får dig til at fokusere på hvad du gerne vil have i dit liv og det bringer flere positive tanker ind i dit liv, som dermed kan ændre dit liv til at blive fyldt med mere glæde. Jeg kan virkelig anbefale at føre en taknemlighedsbog, og det behøves ikke være en bog du køber – du kan også bare tage en tilfældig notesbog eller et stykke papir og så hver dag skrive minimum 3 ting ned som du er taknemmelig for.

Through a gratitude journal, you write things every single day that you are grateful for, and it makes you focus on what you want in your life and it brings more positive thoughts into your life and can thereby change your life to be filled with more happiness. I can truly recommend keeping a gratitude journal, it does not have to be something that you buy – you can just have a random notebook or a blog of paper and write 3 things every single day that you are grateful for. 

Skærmbillede 2016-04-13 kl. 10.47.34Udover The Five-Minute Journal, så har de også lavet The Productivity Planner. Den idé er jeg også helt vild med, og den bog bestilte jeg også straks, og jeg kan ikke vente med at modtage den! Jeg laver et indlæg om den når jeg har fået den.

Besides The Five-Minute Journal, they have also created The Productivity Planner. I also love that idea, and I have ordered that book as well, and I cannot wait to get it! I will make another blog post about that when I get it. 

Har I prøvet at føre en taknemmelighedsbog? Hvis ikke, er det så noget I ville kunne finde på?

Have you ever tried keeping a gratitude journal? If not, is it something that you would want to do?
