Bodycare, Inspo Sunday
Coucou Last weekend I watched the documentary "What the Health?" on Netflix . It honestly made me paranoid, lol. It is definitely worth a watch and will make you think twice about what you consume! I am starting to wonder whether or not it is time …

Today is my boyfriends birthday along with one of my best friends! Yesterday was my mothers birthday and the day before, another one of my best friends and my grandmother also celebrated their birthdays. All Libras and all some of my favorite people in this world β™Ž

Libras are diplomatic and objective and therefore have the ability to listen to different points of view with great patience. They are very good mediators and will always encourage fair solutions. Also, they are very charming and tactful which makes it less difficult for them to give negative feedback, communicate well and say the right things to preserve a good relationship. Libras believe in a true forever love. If experiencing trouble in a relationship Libras are very good at recreating the romantic circumstances. Also, they are very clever and intelligent and can always come up with fair and logical solutions to problems. As Libras have to weigh all points of view before coming to a conclusion they are likely to be very indecisive. They are also quite vain and think a lot about their appearances. Often they are said to have a lazy nature and a sweet tooth πŸŽ‚

I am an Aquarius and the love of my life a Libra. Along with us Yoko Ono and John Lennon and Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt β™Žβ™’

The two zodiac signs are very compatible and therefore I thought I would share some information on the compatibility between the two with you guys! πŸ’

The Libra and the Aquarius are said to always have a good time. The two zodiac signs are outgoing, spread positive energy which also attracts them towards each other. In a relationship between the two it is most likely that they will be best friends and that their love for each other will keep growing. The Aquarius and the Libra supplement each other well. The Libra tends to be flighty where as the fast thinking Aquarius, who does not think about things too much, can help the Libra make decisions.

"Compatibility of Libra Man and Aquarius Woman
The love compatibility between the Libra man and the Aquarius woman will be very romantic and sparkling. At times Libra man may spoil her mood with his changing temperaments and Aquarius woman may also irritate him with her adamant behavior. However, Libra man's cheerful and lively attitude may pull an Aquarius woman towards him and she may also mesmerize him with her looks and intelligence. The tie of a Libra man and an Aquarius woman will be strong and intimate.

Compatibility of Libra Woman and Aquarius Man
The warmth, passion and romance are clearly mentioned in the love compatibility chart of a Libra woman and an Aquarius man. He will be stimulated by the charming and dynamic personality of a Libra woman. Aquarius man will adore her and take her to the world of love and freedom provided that he is happy and contended at that time. Both will influence each other in achieving success and maintaining a good relationship. Apart from little disturbances, both will have superb chemistry between each other."
Read more here.

This information is of course very generalizing as we are all individual and a lot of other aspects determine who we are and what we are like 😊

You are a Libra if your birthday is between 23rd September and 23rd October. If you wish to see what the birthstones of September and October are see my previous post here πŸ’Ž


Thank you so much for reading and happy Sunday night!

Mug from A.U Maison

Coffee is healthy! It is full of antioxidants and beneficial nutrients which are good for our body β˜•

The caffeine in coffee can improve energy level, our mood and some aspects of our brain function. As with everything an overuse is never a good idea.

Coffee contains several important nutrients such as Potassium and Magnesium. Potassium, for example, is good for bone and muscle maintenance. Magnesium is a mineral that supports hundreds of chemical reactions in your body.

It is also said that coffee might be the biggest source to antioxidants for "Westerners" which often do not get enough of fruit and vegetables!

If you do not like coffee a great alternative is Matcha tea which is also packed with antioxidants and contains caffeine as well 🍡

Personally I could not live without coffee. I need one coffee in the morning and one after I have had my lunch. Sometimes even more. As a rule I do not drink coffee after 5 pm on days where I have to sleep relatively early β˜•

Recently I went to La Closerie des Lilas in Montparnasse, Paris' 6th arrondissement (which is btw a great area for dining in real Parisian style πŸ—Ό).

La Closerie des Lilas is a piano bar with great atmosphere and to-die-for interior design! πŸ‘Œ The food is amazing as well 😜

It might be a restaurant on the more pricey side but definitely worth every penny 😍

The adresse is: 171 Boulevard du Montparnasse, 75006 Paris which is right across the RER B (metro train) stop Port Royal.

See their (French) website here ✌

An apple a day keeps the doctor away, lol! 🍎

Apple cider vinegar has several health benefits. I usually put about 2 tablespoons in a big glass of water and drink it as the first thing in the morning.

For optimal benefits you should use the non-filtered type which contains the "mother" which has protein, enzymes and good bacteria in it.

Vinegar contains acetic acid and research shows that it can help control our blood pressure and fat build-up. Vinegar can also help kill bacteria. Also, it contains antioxidants and has antibiotic properties which can aid in healing and restoring your skin and hair, YASSS!

ACV can even be used instead of shampoo! Most shampoos contain sulfates which strip your hair for all natural oils and can disturb the pH level in your scalp. To use as a shampoo you mis 1 part ACV with 1 part water and leave in hair for around 2 minutes to rinse πŸ’†

Never drink it as a "shot" but always dilute it in water or add to your food such as in salad dressings etc.

Get your apple cider vinegar here or here 🍎✌

It has been way too long since my last blog post and I started missing blogging a lot so here goes!

This Sunday I wish to share a really great restaurant with you guys. If you are ever visiting Paris and love seafood I really recommend going to this restaurant 🌊

A few weeks ago a good friend of mine was in Paris for a visit. She used to live here a few years ago and knows the city really well. She told me about this restaurant and thought we should go there. I adore seafood so was obviously up for it 😜

The restaurant is called l'Îlot and is located at 4 rue de la Corderie in Paris' 3rd arrondissement. L'Îlot means "little island", quite a cute name, right? πŸ˜ƒ

We had oysters, whelks (a sort of sea snail) and ceviche and it was SO yummy 😍 The best thing about the restaurant is that it is not very expensive! See their (French) website here.

Thank you so much for reading and happy Sunday!

A few weeks ago I did a little beauty shopping on beautyhero.dk, which sell Mario Badescu products, and in my local Exuviance vendor in Copenhagen. Honestly having a little anxiety here as I believe they do not sell Exuviance in France 😳 lol. Not that they do not have PLENTY of skin care brands here which are amazing but I just really love what the products from Exuviance do to my skin! 😍



From beautyhero.dk I got a citrus body cleanser which is honestly LIFE!!! My skin feels so soft, fresh and clean after. The scent is also amazing πŸ’› It is said to be one of Martha Stewarts favorites and that 75 year old woman looks bomb! πŸ‘Œ Get the body cleanser here.



Next product I got from beautyhero.dk was this summer shine body lotion which I loooove the scent of! The body lotion is full of vitamin A which is an antioxidant which prevent harms from the free radicals - those things which make us look old, lol. It has these small shimmer particles in it and makes your skin look so well hydrated and full of glow. I am a sucker for everything that sparkles and if you are too I recommend you to get this one ✨ find it here.



Third thing from beautyhero.dk was this facial spray with aloe vera, herbs and rosewater which are all calming to your skin. The facial spray is so good in the summer heat for instant freshness πŸ˜‚ Besides that is smells of roses 🌹😍 if you are interested you can find the facial spray here.



Last thing from beautyhero.dk was this silver powder from Mario Badescu which is supposed to remove blackheads really well. I have not tried it yet but am very excited to! As my skin type is normal/combination skin my T-zone is unfortunately full of blackheads 😏 get it here,



From Exuviance I got my all time favorite night cream. I can honestly not rave enough about this! It is so amazing and does wonders to my skin πŸ’πŸ‘ it is full of antioxidants and moisturizes so well. Find it here.



I also got this amazing toner from Exuviance which helps soothe the redness in my skin because of the chamomile it contains. It is also very hydrating. The Soothing Toning Lotion is perfect for sensitive skin and dry skin ✌ AND it is alcohol free! Find the toner here.

Always make sure to check if the products are suitable for your skin type before purchasing. Read everything you need to know about skin types and skin conditions and what the difference is in my previous posts here.

It has been a hot minute since my last blog post so I thought it was about time to write one now!

I have since my last post passed six exams, packed down my life in Copenhagen and moved to Paris where I have been for a little over a week now. I love Paris and having the chance to live here is amazing. I live in the 17th Arrondissement which is very beautiful and full of artisanal shops, great boulangeries, lovely cafΓ©s and restaurants and NOT full of tourists, lol.



The 17th Arrondissement is neighbor to the charming 18th Arrondissement, Montmartre. One of my first days here in Paris I went to Montmartre which is always full of people and with a magnifique view over the rest of the city.



In Montmartre you can find the beautiful cathedral SacrΓ© Coeur (sacred heart), and for those who do not know the cathedral I recommend a visit inside it as well as outside!



Last night I went out for a drink with my flatmate. The terrace of MusΓ©e national de l'histoire de l'immigration has turned in to a big "beach bar" for the summer and looked so beautiful in the sunset. Besides that the museum, I have been told, is definitely worth a visit so I am planning to go there sometime in the near future. The museum is located in the 12th Arrondissement, see their website here.


Thank you so much for reading and bon week-end from Paris!

My skin has been breaking out like crazy these last couple of weeks and it is really bothering me! 😠 I know that they are caused by stress which is always comforting. Like that, I know they will disappear again when the stressful times of having exams and preparing to move to France at the same time are over.

Whenever I have breakouts all I do is wait for them to disappear again and just make sure to cleanse skin well and apply a face mask maybe twice a week. At the moment I am loving this one from Nuxe. Besides using the Nuxe mask I LOVE LOVE LOVE a good sheet mask. I am crazy about this one from Sephora and this one from Dr. Jart+.

In my daily routine I use this Purifying Cleansing Gel from Exuviance, this Soothing Toning Lotion from Exuviance, this Drops of Youth Concentrate from The Body Shop as my serum, this Baume Yeux Divin from l'Occitane, this Enriched Moisturizing Creme from Beauté Pacifique as my day creme and this Evening Restorative Complex from Exuviance as my night creme. As my day cream does not have high SPF I mix a little bit of this sunscreen SPF 30 from Derma into it 😁

My skin type is normal/combination, read about it here. As I have a tendency to a little redness and sensitivity I use the Soothing Toning Lotion from Exuviance linked above to soothe skin and prevent redness ✌

When it comes to occasional breakouts all you have to do is to be patient and consistent in your daily skin care routine. Beauty (literally, lol) comes from within and having a healthy diet and making sure your body is in balance is everything when it comes to having a beautiful skin. Skin care products can only assist and make good better but first you need to take care of the inside. Worst thing to do is to pack concealer and foundation on top so try to avoid that as much as you can!

I am doing my best to not stress overly much and make sure to take a little time off when I can at the moment. I always make sure to get as much sleep as possible even though I am really busy at the moment.

In the next few weeks there probably wont be a lot of activity on my blog but I will make up for it once exams are over and I am settled in France πŸ˜œπŸ‡«πŸ‡·


Thank you so much for reading and enjoy your Sunday!

A month has passed and so has me trying out living vegan, lol.

One of the positive things about trying out veganism has been that I have been consuming way more greens than I used to and I ate LOADS before. I even think I have lost a little weight during this month. I never weigh myself as I believe that scales are the root of all evil, lol. Only thing I get from weighing myself is being disappointed or even depressed if the numbers do not tell me what I want them to tell. Stopping to weigh myself has given me much more confidence and made me love my body for what it is even more 😁 Little side note, lol.

I did not eat very much meat before but avoiding things like eggs has definitely been a little challenging. Trying to figure out how to substitute with other protein rich foods has been a little hard. I have been eating a lot of kale, spinach, chia seeds, chickpeas and portobello mushrooms. But hey, it has been good for my creativity in the kitchen, lol.

The first week or two I was quite bloated but afterwards it has been fine. I have not missed animal based products during this period at all ✌ Even though, there have been a few downsides to being vegan for me. My nails have been chapped the last two weeks or so and that is even though I have taken calcium supplements and been eating loads of broccoli. Besides that it has been hard finding something to eat while going out for dinner. I do not enjoy being that complicated person who needs special treatment.

Being vegan is said to make your skin clearer but for me it has not. It looks pretty much the same as before 😝

I think that for me (as of right now at least) going vegan for good is not going to happen. It has been a fun experience but I enjoy cheese, seafood, eggs etc. too much to go vegan for good. I need to do my groceries today which I think will be a strange feeling, lol. Definitely putting eggs, milk, natural yogurt (skyr) and salmon in to my cart πŸ’

I think for me being flexitarian is the optimal solution. I think I pretty much was to begin with haha 😜

If you are not following Lee Litumbe on Instagram already you need to go do it ASAP! Find her profile spritedpursuit here. She has the most beautiful feed and I want her to take me wherever she goes, lol! She also has a travel blog, find it here.

Last but not least she just recently launched a webshop with beautiful artisan products from Senegal. There she collaborates with local vendors. Visit the webshop here. I kind of need these earrings and this tote in my life, lol.

Not only does she visit beautiful places but she is absolutely stunning herself 😁
