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

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?

It’s Monday and time to look back at the past week which consisted of a lot of homeworks and exam preparation, but also time to relax and drink lots of tea and matcha latte’s!

Last week I wrote a blog post about Apple Cider Vinegar hair rinse to make the transition period from conventional shampoo to shampoo bar easier – and I’m still loving how soft my hair gets after I use it in the shower!

Speaking of Apple Cider Vinegar, I’ve also tried to make my own ACV toner for my face which I’m currently using every evening and I really like it so far – update will come later!

I’ve started to look more into Bullet Journals and writing down and tracking lots of things, if you have a good bullet journal ‘theme’, then please share it with me!

This is how I’ve spend most of my days the past week – cozy socks and matcha latte and reading homeworks!

I visited LØS market to stuck up on a few things, and don’t “zero waste” grocery shopping just look amazing? I’m completely in love with it!

I’ve also been eating hella-healthy the past week, after having been so inspired by the book WomanCode which I’m currently reading. I’m feeling amazing after having followed some of the flo-living guidelines in the book (fx keeping your blood sugar stable by eating regularly), and I’ve been so inspired that my lunch and dinner have looked like the above plate for most of the past few days!

How was your past week? And are you up to anything great for 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?

Monday and that means time to look back at some of all the everyday happiness I’ve found in the past week!

I’ve been so grateful for my and my boyfriend’s apartment – it is truly a lovely place and just HOME, I love it <3

I’ve started using a shampoo bar, and if you’ve been following along in here, you also know that I was just about to quit it after having tried it the first time – read more about that right here!

I’ve been drinking matcha lattes with sweet Cirkeline at the most lovely café in Copenhagen called Yellow Rose which has a vegetarian/vegan menu <3

and I have of course been drinking ton of tea as always, especially nettle and rooibos tea these days are my absolute favourite!

In the weekend I was half a day at work at Saturday and then directly home to my parents and littlesister, to celebrate my sister’s birthday. And on Sunday it was time for work all day again.

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!)

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?

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

Så er det mandag, og tid til at kigge tilbage på den forgangne uges små glæder!

/Then it became Monday again and it’s time for another round of the past weeks small joys!

Jeg har læst lektier, masser af lektier – uni er startet igen for real

/I’ve read homeworks, lots of homeworks – uni has begun again for real

På grund af overstående grund, har jeg desværre heller ikke været så meget ude da jeg har siddet indendøre og læst lektier – men jeg fik set en smuk himmel denne dag!

/Due to the above reason I’ve unfortunately not had much time to spend time outside since I’ve been inside reading homeworks – but I did get to see this beautiful sky!

Som i kan se har jeg drukket masser af matcha latte’s og spist lækkert chokolade* mhmmm…

/As you can see I’ve been drinking lots of matcha latte’s and eaten delicious chocolate* mhmm… 

Jeg har delt nogle af mine favoritter til en rigtig selvforkælelsesdag. Har du haft sådan en dag for nylig?

/I shared some of my favourites for a real selfcare day. Have you had such a day recently?

Jeg var forbi til et fint event sammen med Cathrine afholdt af Wilfa & Aarstiderne ude på Fasangården. Her mødte jeg blandt andet de søde piger Emma og Mia fra Sustain Daily

WATCHING YOURSELF CHANGE

Forleden faldt jeg over dette billede af mig, som min søde kæreste delte på sin Instagram for 100 år siden, og jeg er bare et HELT andet menneske i dag end jeg var på det billede, både udvendig og indvendig.

Dette fik mig til at tænke på hvordan jeg har udviklet mig og ændret holdninger, meninger og værdier igennem livet. Jeg synes det er smukt at se ens egen udvikling, og ikke mindst utroligt sjovt.

For bare få år siden afblegede jeg mit hår flere gange om året hos frisøren, jeg var på A-vitamin kuren for at gøre noget ved bumserne, jeg drak og festede ofte, jeg brugte en serum for at få længere øjenvipper og mine livsværdier var bare helt anderledes end de er i dag.

Men det er ikke kun de fysiske forskelle der har ændret sig, det er også de indre.

I dag vil jeg gerne leve så naturligt som overhovedet muligt, fordi at jeg nu synes at naturlig skønhed er det smukkeste – og fordi at jeg mere tror på at skønhed kommer indefra, både i form af hvad vi spiser, men også i form af hvordan vi er som person, og om vi behandler andre mennesker ordentligt.

Kan du genkende dette ved dig selv? Vi ændrer os jo allesammen som mennesker, og det gør vi igennem hele livet – og det er smukt. Hvordan har du selv forandret dig igennem livet?

The other day I came across this picture of me, which my sweet boyfriend shared on Instagram ages ago, and I am SUCH a different person today, both when it comes to the outside and the inside.

That made me think of how we develop and change opinions, thoughts and values all throughout life. I think it is so beautiful to watch your own self development, and also very fun.

Just a few years ago I bleached my hair several times a year at the hairdresser, I took the A-vitamin pill to get rid of my pimples, I drank and went to a lot of parties, I used a serum to get longer eyelashes and my values in life have changed completely.

But it is not just the physical differences which have changed, but also those inside.

Today I want to live as naturally as possible, because today I think that natural beauty is the prettiest – and because I believe that beauty comes from the inside, both in terms of what we eat and put into our bodies, but also how we are as a person, and in how we treat others. 

Can you recognize yourself? We all change as humans, and we do that throughout all of our lives – and that is beautiful. How have you changed through your life?
