EVERYDAY HAPPINESS

It’s Monday and you know what that means – time to look back at some everyday happiness from the past week!

I’ve been fuelling myself with my favourite green smoothie almost daily!

I’ve been practicing yoga at home, and at Cathrine’s yoga class Thursday evening at Yogacentralen <3

My boyfriend and I have booked a trip to Alicante, Spain, this Summer and I’m looking so much forward to it! If you have good suggestions for things/places to see, where to eat, sustainable shops etc. then please share them with me! I would love to know since I’ve never been there before

Okay so this isn’t from the past week but this upcoming week, but I just thought I wanted to announce it again. Emma, Johanne and I are going to hold a speech (Danish) about how you can live more sustainable at Fredensborg Bibliotek April 12th 7pm – if you are nearby, come and join!

Saturday some of my best friends from high school came over for brunch and birthday celebration, and it was so good to see them again <3

I started Sunday out with picking up trash at Amager Strandpark with Clean Up Copenhagen and these 3 lovely women! We had the most beautiful sunny weather! Where should we hold the next TRASH & TALK event?

After picking up trash at Amager, I went straight to The Organic Club at Vesterbro for the Sustain Yearly pick-up party. It was so great, so many lovely women, the new magazine, ice tea, the sun was shinning and I spend the next couple of hours talking with Ida in the sunshine – what a lovely day!

Sweet Johanne & Emma at the pick-up party

The beautiful magazine <3 I’m so grateful for having written something in such a beautiful magazine which is all about how you can live a more sustainable life. And a big congrats to lovely Sustain Daily for making this magazine and for spreading sustainable inspiration to so many people!

Monday and time to look back at some everyday happiness from the past week!

How was your past week?

Monday called for work, but I really love my work, and I love that it is something I’m able to do from wherever I am – it’s so freeing.

I’ve been adding lots of healthy fats into my everyday diet lately after recommendation from Carolina

I went to the Botanical Garden with one of my best friends to take some pictures and get some tropical feeling into our bodies while it was minus degrees and snowing outside – always a good idea!

After going out into the snow again after having been to the Botanical Gardens we went straight to get some warm drinks <3

Speaking of the Botanical Garden, my own little “Botanical Garden” is also growing at home, and I love how much my Monstera is growing

Saturday called for work and my boyfriend’s mothers birthday, and Sunday called for pure relaxation with selfcare and serie-marathon with my boyfriend. You have to watch the serie “Manhunt: Unabomber”, it’s based on true events and it is so good and fascinating!

Monday and time to look back at some everyday happiness from the past week! It’s the little things that make up our lives, so let’s try to appreciate them and be grateful for all the small things in life <3

How was your past week? 

I finally got my newly painted shelf up! So far I only have 2 plants on it, but I’m waiting for another one from my friend, and then I hope they grow long and big and hang all the way down from the shelf <3

I baked Carolina’s spelt buns, and I have also tried several different new things and changes in my diet and overall lifestyle after having a health consultation with Carolina <3

I received this beautiful “turtle bag” which I bought through Ilovegreen. I really like the concept of the turtle bag it’s made from organic natural fibres and it’s biodegradable. Turtle bags was made to protect the oceans, but as it says in the name also turtles. Many turtles mistake plastic bags in the ocean for jellyfish and eat them, and ends up getting plastic inside them and several die. That’s just so sad. Bring your own bag and ditch the plastic bags.

I’ve been fuelling myself with lots of this green smoothie! I try to drink one every single day to get lots of green and fibers in my body <3

Sunday I spent my morning in spa with my mom. I love this. A combination of taking good care of your body, relaxing and talking and spending time with my mom <3 After that we were completely relaxed and ate some lunch and then home where I pretty much fell asleep on the couch – perfect Sunday, if you ask me.

Monday and time to look back at some of the lovely things from the past week – everyday happiness.
I’ve been to school, studying, photographing Copenhagen with one of my best friends, relaxing and taking time for selfcare, studying with one of my other best friends, watched Atlantis with my boyfriend and been to my cousins birthday – lovely week.

How was your past week?

This week my friend and I went to a certain part of Copenhagen to take pictures and enjoy the city. It was freezing cold, but still beautiful!

I also took time to just be still, do some selfcare, drink some tea and relax. I really try my best that whenever I start to feel overwhelmed with things to do – instead of doing more, I try to take some time to relax and calm down. And once I’m calm and relaxed again I can usually handle much more and without feeling any kind of stress <3

  chai latte

Saturday I had a lovely study day with one of my best friends – just reading a lot, drinking chai latte, talking and eating lunch <3

green smoothies

Later that Saturday I came home and my boyfriend and I made some green smoothies, cuddled up on the couch with a blanket and watched the ‘Atlantis’ movie – lovely evening!

The past week has been filled with lots of studying, great time with one of my best friends, coming home to valentines day to find that my boyfriend had bought me flowers and chocolate (so sweet, but I might have hinted it a bit too much, cause that is the first time in 5 years that that happens, nevertheless I’m so grateful and I love him so much) and I’ve been on a lovely yoga retreat with Cathrine on Samsø over the weekend <3

As you might have seen on Instagram, I’ve started tongue scraping and it’s incredibly satisfying once you first begin

I’ve also tried to make my very own face cream, and it turned out really well, it’s so thick and moisturising, perfect for dry winter skin!

I spend the weekend in this beautiful place (Mellem-Rummet) at Samsø on a yoga retreat held by Cathrine, and a lot of kind and loving people. We ate lots of delicious, healthy vegan food, practiced yoga, relaxed, drank herbal teas and just had time to just be. So lovely!

It’s Monday and time to look back at the happy moments from the past week!

How was your past week?

green smoothie

After having returned home from holiday I’m so happy to be back to green smoothies, green teas, matcha lattes and lots of healthy food! I simply just love and enjoy filling my body with good, nourishing food!

I’ve started school again, and luckily I have some pretty interesting courses, fx one about consumer culture and buying behaviours – highly interesting

self care

I’ve been reading a loot of homeworks and had classes, but I’ve of course also found time for some relaxing self-care time. Always remember to take time to stress down and relax – otherwise you’ll run out of energy and will not be able to do any of all of the things you want to <3

I’ve also been listening to some lovely podcasts (Emma Martiny’s and Connie Chapman’s), and been reflecting and journalling

This past week was wonderful! I finally finished my last exam, and was able to just relax and as you read this I’m in France on a skin trip with my boyfriend and his family!

This week has for sure been lovely. As mentioned, I finished my last exam at my 1st semester of my Master, I finally found a delicious green smoothie recipe and have been drinking these A LOT (you’ll know if you follow me on Instagram), I went to see the movie Wonder with my mom and cried like so many times. I can really recommend it, it was so sweet and really shows how we are all battling with our own problems, and how we should never judge a person based on how they look, or how we might think their lives are, we should instead be nice and open and try to get to know other people. I wish all school children could watch this movie!

Friday I participated in Sustain Daily’s event for their kickstarter campaign for their new Magazine Sustain Yearly, which you can support here! Saturday morning I went to the airport and travelled to France. But, even though I might be in France for the next week, I’ve still planned some blogposts which are coming up for you!

How was your past week?

Just look at this cutiepie! I already miss her (my grandparents are taking care of her while we’re away on holiday, so I know she’s being spoiled and getting lots of love <3 )

I’ve been drinking macacao (cacao with maca, it’s good and stabilises hormones!)

I’ve been journalling and reflecting

I’ve been drinking 4 green smoothies in 4 days, and I intend to continue this lovely habit once I’m back home again from my skin trip! Ps, you can find the recipe on my Instagram, or wait till tomorrow where I’ll share it here on my blog

The beautiful Sustain Yearly magazine! Ps, I might have written an article in it, so I know I’m biased, but I LOVED the 1st edition, and I can’t wait to get my hands on the 2nd issue. Go support the magazine here!

It’s Monday and time to reflect at some everyday happiness which I experienced the past week. I’ve had a lovely past week filled with DIY projects, great talks, and watching a documentary together with my parents and much more! How was your past week?

The past week I made a cleaning spray consisting of only water and white vinegar, easy peasy!

I also made some homemade lip balms, which you can find the recipe for right here

I’ve been planning and reflecting a lot. I know 2018 is going to be one amazing year!

I’ve been eating deliciousy healthy food! I watched What the Health once again this week, this time with my parents <3

I had the most delicious hot chocolate on coconut milk at Souls, together with the most lovely, passionated talk about so many different things together with Cirkeline <3

After a visit to Souls, we went straight across the street and visited the most beautiful little store called The Organic Club, which both sells brand with a sustainable focus and secondhand clothing – loved it, definitely worth a visit!

This past week has been filled with exam preparation, a cup of chai latte with Emilie, a meeting with Cathrine, work, celebration of having been together with my boyfriend for 5 years, talk and a walk with Ida, seeing my mom for a café date, been to the most lovely and touching yoga event and celebrated my dad’s birthday!
But, I don’t really have much pictures from all of the above since I’ve just been enjoying it and not taken any pictures. So, here are some pictures from my Instagram from the past week.

It’s been months since I last saw Emilie, so it was lovely to catch up again and talk about how everything is going!

I love how loose leaf tea, but to be honest this is just a picture of the loose leaf tea in my kitchen. I still have sooooo many tea bags, because I’m a bit of a tea hoarder, but I’m trying not to buy new packages (pay attention to “try”) and finish what I have and from then on only strive for loose leaf tea

I posted this picture on Instagram and asked for you guys’ advice on which shampoo bars you used, and WOW I got so many good suggestion for different shampoo bars, also a suggestion for no-poo and using morrocan clay to wash the hair with. I’ll experiment with some different ones, but I was so happy to get all the lovely advice! (If you want to read all the lovely suggestions, then you can find the picture here)

Saturday I was at a yoga event with Cathrine and Karen Pallisgaard in collaboration with Børne Hjernecancer Fonden (a Danish organisation raising money for science in brain cancer for Children). This was one of the most beautiful and touching experiences I’ve ever had. I’m a very sensitive being, but I can usually “control” myself when I’m out amongst other people, but not today. We had 1 hour of yoga with Cathrine, then 1 hour of meditation and yoga nidra with Karen and then Anette from Børne Hjernecancer Fonden ended it all with telling about how her daughter got diagnosed with a brain tumor and died, and that was the reason for why she founded this organisation. It was so touching, and I truly think it’s such a beautiful organisation she has created.

Hello everyone! It’s been a while since these everyday happiness update. Since last time I’ve written an exam, celebrated Christmas, relaxed and celebrated new years eve! Did you have a good Christmas and new years eve? And are you ready for this new year? I sure am!

I got this lovely little book about positive psychology in a Christmas present, and it is such a nice, quick and easy read, I think I want to read more of those “tænkepauser” books, such a good way to get a quick introduction to an interesting topic.

On the last day of 2017 I spend the day with 150 other people practicing yoga and setting good intentions for the next year. I was so happy to be a part of this, a big thank you to Cathrine and Carrotstick for creating this lovely event in the most beautiful setting (Brøndsalen, Frederiksberg)!

I’ve begun using my new Atelier Aarhus calendar for 2018, and I just love to fill it with great plans!

I’ve been doing a lot of relaxing and selfcare. I got a giftcard to Matas for Christmas, so I decided to try out this little cupping glass from Sard Kopenhagen, which I’ve seen Tine and Tanja recommend.

I’m so happy about how our kitchen is turning more and more zero waste and filled with beautiful glasses. Just look at this spice collection! Am I the only one loving it?

Before the new year I also bought a new plant. My boyfriend thinks our living room is turning into a minor jungle. What can I say, I just LOVE green plants!
