Hello!

Thought I'd post some photos of my current interior favourites and home details. I'm a huge candle fan and I love to create a warm atmosphere to my home. I hope you will find some inspirations through my photos. xx

Below 'The Knot of Friendship' designed by Josef Frank. The 'Clover' candles are designed by Sara Szyber and both available at Svenskt Tenn

These beautiful tall candles add some warmth on a casual evening or when it's time for celebration! By Orrefors Sweden, designed by Lena Bergstrom, 'Carat' is available online click here

Long Corridors can also be made cosy! Adding paintings everywhere may make a home feel smaller and less spacious. I found these gorgeous tea light holders from Swedish interior store MIO click here

P.S. Christmas decorations don't have to look tacky. I decorated the edges of our windows with some thin-lined gold tinsel to add a sparkly touch to our home.

Last but not least I have to say, that I'm a huge fan of antique furniture. I feel that pieces of old furniture each carry a fascinating story of their own. I always keep my eyes open for finds like these. They also add a cosy touch to a newly built apartment.

Bathroom / I'm not a huge fan of Missoni Home print but I wanted to add some trendiness into our bathroom with a colourful hand towel.

This combo is my ultimate favourite at the moment, Gold details on a missoni inspired tray. Golden candles from Skultuna & Svenkst Tenn <3​

​​​I Hope you enjoyed my interior post and found some inspiration for your home! xxx Lotta

Yesterday when we booked flights to Bangkok in January I realised that our engagement anniversary is coming up. New years eve 2016 was the night of the proposal and everything was so magical. The proposal happened in Bangkok after a spontaneous night of us wondering around the city. Here are a few photos taken on the romantic night! (ps, to think that I was already 5 months pregnant in the photo above)

​Mojito's at the Lebua Hotel 

First photo after the engagement. Everything felt surreal and I was over the moon. I remember waking up the next morning and feeling like the happiest woman on earth and I couldn't stop smiling. Nothing has changed- I still feel like the luckiest woman ever.


Here is a photo of my gorgeous ring. I'm not a super blingy person but I wanted my ring to have some character and a 'vintage-feel'. I also wished for a custom-made ring so it would have a more personal meaning. This ring was handcrafted by Finnish goldsmith Jouni Salo at my favourite jeweller in Helsinki, A. Tillander.

Ciao!

Here's a recipe for a delicious homemade Granola. Granola's which are available at food stores often taste artificial and contain lots of excess sugar. This recipe is healthy and a perfect idea for breakfast or as a snack on the go.

Ingredients:

Oats 8dl

Nuts of your choice (almonds, cashews) 5dl

Cinnamon 1 tbsp

Raw honey 3/4dl

Coconut oil 3 tbsp


Preparation

Heat oven to 160 degrees

Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl (oats, nuts, cinnamon)

Warm the coconut oil and honey on a stove until they mix (low temp)

Pour the warm honey and oil into the bowl together with the dry ingredients and mix

Place the granola mix onto a baking tray and bake in the oven for around 30 mins

When the Granola mix is in the oven stir it every now and then (around 4 times)

Bake the granola until golden. Remove from oven an let the granola cool down


The granola lasts upto 2-3 weeks. It's a good idea to prepare lots and fill this delicious granola into a few plastic containers in your kitchen.


I also added some dehydrated fruits into the granola mix. I dried some apple and mango slices. For this, you will need a food dehydrator and the dehydration process takes upto 5-6 hours, so the best way to prepare them is overnight. I really recommend it because you can dry your own vegetables and fruits the healthy way :)

Journey to fit 

Hi everyone. Now is a good time to start blogging since my journey begins. Giving birth has brought my lovely daughter into the world and I wouldn't change her for anything in the world, I love her to bits. During giving birth I also realised how amazing a womans body is and how much power and strength is within.

This takes me to my goal. "Journey to fit". I'm proud to announce that Just Strong Clothing is supporting me on my path and I've been chosen to represent the brand as a brand ambassador. As a person I live to inspire people, this brings me loads of positive energy. Just Strong is a brand which encourages women in achieving their goals. Check out www.juststrongclothing.com for new workout gear and get discount with my code LROOS10.

Below is a photo of me now, 4 months after giving birth. I'm one in millions of women who have given birth, I've experienced it all, the good the bad and the tough parts of the process. Now it's time to flip my body back to it's full potential and strength. TOGETHER WE WILL SUCCEED: Who's with me?!

But.. how?

My main checklist to success:

Balanced diet and tasty + healthy daily meals

Healthy snacks between meals

Drinking lots of water

Trying to get enough sleep and rest (as a mother it can be tricky sometimes)

invest in a good protein to use after workouts

Make sure you also have a good BCAA, which helps you gain energy and recover faster before and during the workout.

Routines / keeping track of meals and workouts (a notebook helps me)

Cardio & gym workouts + balance between 

Recovery: rest days, stretching & yoga


PS. I'm so excited to try Women's Best new BCAA! They come in many many yummy flavours. As a mum I can get really tired during the day and sometimes I make it to the gym later in the evening so this really helps me get that extra kick. Almonds are also a favourite snack I have them all around my home :) Anything can be unhealthy if over-consumed so don't overdo it though :)

STAY FIT GUYS! Till next time

Lotta
