The best little goofball I know is turning 7 years old today! The best thing about him is that he still acts like a little puppy - he is never growing up and gives us tons of laughs all the time!
He got to choose his own treat - which does he go for?
Well after some hide and seek he ended up getting both in the end. I can´t resist those eyes <3

Chilling on the sofa after my body balance class before going to bed. Body balance is such a good way to end the day. It´s a mix of yoga, pilates and stretching. Working on your core strength, balance and breathing. By the end of the class both my body and mind is completely calm and it´s such a good feeling. Well, I´m off to bed to catch up on some much needed sleep!
I don´t understand why people hate Valentines day. But I can understand why they hate the pressure of gifts and spending money. Personally I love Valentines day, everything has it´s own day these days - even the toothbrush - so why hate the day for spreading love? I loved it when I was single and I love it when I am in a relationship. We luckily do not have the pressure of gifts but of course I love getting a card and flowers - I am a girl after all! I am lucky that my boyfriend surprises me with flowers now and then during the whole year so why not make one of those days Valentines day? As for gifts we usually giving each other adventures that we can experience together instead of material stuff. Not only for valentines day, but any occasion like birthdays and christmas. Other than the flowers there is no romance in this house today. I´m sitting on the sofa alone after the pole class as Martin took an extra shift at work. Well, thats a lie.. I am giving the dog love all the time even if he isn´t alway too keen!
I loved the class today btw. Seems everyone else it out to dinner or something cause I got a pole for my self for the whole 70 minutes today! Absolutely loved it - kind of died a little after! Not used to dance the entire class as we usually are 16 people on 8 poles and have to share. Anyway, I hope everyone has given some love today from a boyfriend, colleague, friend or family member. The smallest compliment can make somebody´s day! And if you hate Valentines day and mean that we need to remember to spread love the whole year round: tomorrow is your start! You now have 364 days to make the world a more lovable place till next Valentines day ;)
All this pole dancing is leaving me wanting loads of new sports bras! You can´t really dance in a tee as you need your body friction on the pole to be able to do most of the moves. Of course I could get a few tank tops but I usually prefer tees when doing my strength and cardio outside the dance studio. When living in LA i discovered this new Australian brand called Lorna Jane that I came to love. It´s so cute and different from brands like Nike and Adidas. Don´t get me wrong, I LOVE Nike and Adidas but when it comes to sports bras Lorna Jane is way more fun! Too bad it´s hard to get hold of here in Norway. They have a tiny selection on Zalando - unfortunately they do not have the styles on my wishlist:
I just love the mix of fabrics, texures and shapes!

Today it´s time to put that blue party wig on for the first time in a month + 1 week and give a propper cheers to my friend Pål´s birthday! My dry month is over and I am proud that I managed to go one week more than I originally planned! It´s been a lot easier than I thought and I will definitely give it an other go later on! What I´ve missed the most is having a glass of wine or a beer with dinner, not really the going out part. Although it´s also been nice to see that I could go for a night out without drinking - best part is to be able to drive back home after! I will definitely repeat having a sober night now and then depending on who I´m with and where we go :) Luckily I feel much better today but anyway I will take it easy tonight as I don´t really want to have a fallback. Hoping we will have as much fun tonight as we did for New Years!
It´s really hard coming up with something interesting to write when you´ve been sleeping for two whole days. Being quite bored I started testing snap filters. Got quite exited when it turned out one filter even worked on the girl on my hoodie! What a Friday this turned out to be! Kind of wondering if the filters will work on the dog but he will never sitt still long enough for me to try.. go figure..! Wishing everyone a great weekend!
I been in bed with the flu today. Event though the dog is happy to not be home alone I think he is completely bored from me sleeping the whole day. At one moment he started barking at me for attention and ran round in circles on the livingroom floor. He is the cutest weirdo at times! Fingers crossed I feel better tomorrow!
Please don´t mind the mess in the background! ;)
I´ve got the flu. Getting through work today was a complete struggle as every inch of my body is aching and I´ve been freezing cold. Been sleeping since I got home and I think Maestro (the dog) hates me a little. He is just sitting there staring at me and I feel so guilty for not having the strength to go for a walk. He has got to wait till Martin is back from work. Hopefully I am feeling better tomorrow, but I kind of doubt it. I´m the worst at being ill - so impatient. It´s such a waste.
When I was at my coldest I actually found a fire at work! Best workplace!
It´s so annoying. When I finally get in to a good routine with my workouts I get a cold. My throat is so damn soar and my body feels week. Had a short climbing session this evening but all I wanted was to get back to the sofa with a warm cup of green tea with honey. Hate feeling like this. Best get an early night and hopefully I feel better and ready for a new day tomorrow morning!
