I sincerely apologise for not posting anything in a while, and I totally understand if no one is actually still reading my posts, but I've been busy studying for my exams, but guess what I had the last one yesterday. Now, I just need all of you to pray that I've passed all of them so I can actually start enjoying my summer holidays! This actually means that I've most likely finished my fourth semester of uni! 2 years down, 3 to go! 🙈

Anyway, back to what this post is actually about. I don't know if any of you are like me and hate to throw out food. But every time I do, I feel really bad. Not only because hunger is a problem in a great part of the world, but also because when we throw out food we are worsening global warming! It's not good for anyone to throw out food, but as I live on my own, I often find it hard to eat everything before it goes bad. Therefore, I've decided not to buy any groceries for as long as possible (the other day I did however buy toothpaste and toothbrushes, but that's it) so for almost three weeks I have not bought any groceries at all! I know you're probably thinking that isn't possible, but tell me how many of you have canned food, pasta, rice, flour and so much more stored at your place? Well guess what so do I 🙋🏼As a matter of fact, my freezer is stored up with food too. Bread, buns, scones, dinner, vegetables, ice cream and so on, and unfortunately, I tend to think 'oh it's been there for too long, I better throw it out'. But not now! Now I'm actually trying to go through all the dishes I have and eat the bread and vegetables etc. Before I buy anything new! Because guess what you do not need fresh food to eat healthy, both vegetables and fruits come in frozen variations and are good for example smoothies. It's also easy to fry green beans from the freezer and they taste amazing! And those same beans can also be used for a curry dish if you by any chance have some canned coconut milk. I did. And so I made a curry dish with that the other day and added beans, canned corn, an onion (because they last for a very long time if stored correctly), garlic and so on! I even added lentils and chickpeas that I also had in the cupboard, and now, I have dinner for like a week! I do understand if you don't want to eat the same thing for a week, so instead, freeze it down in small portions if you have a freezer or invite people over for dinner! You can serve it with rice if you want (if you by any chance have that stored too) or you can just eat it like that. I've talked to both my mum and a friend about it and they don't understand how I can live that long without grocery shopping. But think about the stashes of food you have? Beans, chickpeas etc do not need to be stored in a cold place and can practically last forever and they are healthy. You can easily eat that with pasta or rice and then add some vegetables from the freezer. Now, I know that all of it is not the most interesting and I can't wait to have bananas and apples and eggs, milk etc. at my place again. But it's only for a while that I'm doing this. I think that the thing I run out of first will be toilet paper! And no I'm not going to find a substitute for that ;) but hey the good thing is that while you do this you also save some money, although afterwards I think I'll just end up spending that money on new groceries as I'll have to buy practically everything. But perhaps I'll end up eating something I'd otherwise have thrown out! And then there's definitely no excuses as to why you should not do it too! Think of the environment !

Jeg undskylder oprigtigt for ikke at skrive noget i et stykke tid, og jeg forstår helt hvis ingen rent faktisk læser mine indlæg, men jeg har haft travlt med at læse op til mine eksamener, men gæt hvad jeg var oppe til den sidste i går. Nu har jeg derfor bare brug for at i beder til, at jeg har bestået dem alle, så jeg rent faktisk kan begynde at nyde min sommerferie! Gæt hvad det betyder, at jeg højst sandsynligt har afsluttet mit fjerde semester af uni! 2 år er færdigt! Dog er der 3 tilbage! 🙈

Anyway, tilbage til hvad dette indlæg egentlig handler om. Jeg ved ikke, om nogen af ​​jer er ligesom mig og hader madspild. Men hver gang jeg smider mad ud, har jeg det virkelig dårligt. Ikke kun fordi sult er et problem i en stor del af verden, men også fordi, at når vi smider mad ud er vi med til at øge CO2- udslippet! Det er derfor ikke godt for nogen at vi smider så meget mad ud som vi nu gør. Men eftersom at jeg bor alene, finder jeg det ofte svært at spise alt før det bliver dårligt. Derfor har jeg besluttet mig for ikke at handle ind så længe som det nu er muligt (den anden dag købte jeg dog tandpasta og tandbørster, men det er det) så i næsten tre uger ( i morgen) har jeg ikke købt nogen dagligvarer! Jeg ved, at du sikkert tænker på, at det ikke er muligt, men fortæl mig, hvor mange af jer som ikke har pasta, ris, mel og en masse andet opbevaret derhjemme? Det har jeg nemlig 🙋🏼 Faktisk er min fryser fyld op med mad også. Rugbrød, boller, scones, retter til aftensmad, grøntsager, is osv, og desværre har jeg en tendens til at tænke 'åh det har ligger der for længe, ​​jeg må hellere smide det ud'. Men det skal stoppe nu! Nu forsøger jeg faktisk at komme igennem alle de retter jeg har og spise brød og grøntsager osv. Før jeg køber noget nyt! For faktisk har man ikke brug for friske råvarer for at kunne spise sundt. Både grøntsager og frugter findes jo på frost, og er gode til for eksempel smoothies. Det er også nemt at stege grønne bønner fra fryseren og de smager fantastisk! Og de samme bønner kan også bruges til en karry ret, især hvis du tilfældigt også har en dåse kokosmælk. Det havde jeg fx. Og så lavede jeg en karry ret af det med bønner, dåsemajs, et løg (fordi de holder i meget lang tid, hvis de opbevares korrekt), hvidløg og så videre! Jeg tilføjede endda linser og kikærter, som jeg også havde i skabet, og jeg har aftensmad til en uge! Forstår godt hvis du ikke vil spise det samme i en uge, men så kan det fryses ned i små portioner (evt i plastikposer som man oftes også har liggende). Dog hvis du ikke har en fryser kan du invitere folk til middag! Du kan servere det med ris hvis du vil (hvis du tilfældigvis har det i et af dine skabe), eller du kan bare spise det som det er. Jeg har talt med både min mor og en veninde om det, og de forstår ikke, hvordan jeg kan leve så længe uden at handle. Men tænk på alle de lager af mad du/i har liggende? Bønner, kikærter osv. behøves ikke opbevares på et koldt sted og kan næsten holde i en evighed, og så de sunde. Du kan nemt spise det med pasta eller ris og tilføje nogle grøntsager fra fryseren. Nu ved jeg godt, at alt det ikke er det mest interessante, og jeg kan ikke vente med at have bananer og æbler og æg, mælk osv herhjemme igen. Men det er jo kun for et stykke tid, at jeg gør dette. Jeg tror, ​​at det jeg løber tør for først bliver toiletpapir! Og nej, jeg kommer ikke til at finde en erstatning for det;) men hey det gode er at imens det står på sparer du samtidig penge, selvom jeg er sikker på jeg ender med bare at bruge det flere penge næste gang jeg handler ind. Men måske ender jeg med at spise noget, jeg ellers ville have smidt ud! Og så er der absolut ingen undskyldninger til, hvorfor du ikke bør gøre det også! Tænk på det gode du gør ved miljøet ;)

It's so stupid, but I started watching the entire show of Prison Break while I'm supposed to study for my exams! From Saturday the 3rd of June till the 10th of June I have four exams, yet I can't get enough of this show. So I'm warning you do not start watching it if you have exams coming up too.
I actually began with the sequel thinking it was short (only nine episodes in total) which meant it wouldn't have me stuck to the telly for too long. I was wrong! Some of my friends from Uni were talking about the sequel and since I had already watched some episodes from the original show and I knew what would happen I thought why not give the sequel a go? The bad thing though is that now I'm addicted!
I started watching season one less than two weeks ago and then I finished the series Tuesday night. Yesterday, I rewatched all the episodes from the sequel finishing off with the last episode as it was released last night. And now I'm at episode nine of season one again! 🙈 I know I shouldn't watch it again, and especially not now when I have exams coming up, but I can't stop.
I have completely fallen in love with the show and the characters, especially Michael and Sara. And I don't know how to let it all go! I don't remember when I've last fallen so much in love with a show. I fell in love with Skam too, but that was different. And these characters won't leave my mind!

If you haven't given the show a go already do it, I'm almost positive you won't regret it because let's face it Wentworth Miller is very easy on the eye. And that's practically enough reason to watch the show !

To those of you who have exams coming up, good luck and if you don't go watch this trailer to the original show.

It's been forever since I finished my one month with Sugar Bear Hair. I've been wanting to write for a long time, but my priorities have simply been elsewhere.
I'm well aware that a month with the product might not be enough to show an actual change. And I can tell you that I so no changes, however, my friend told me she saw a change in the growth of her nails. I know it takes approximately six months for your nails to grow out, but if Sugar Bear Hair worked as she said, I would be able to see a growth in my nails within only a month. Hence, I did not see a growth in my nails or my hair. And although, I know I'd have to take the product for a longer time to see a shine in my hair, I'm quite sceptical about whether this would work either. I didn't notice my hair should have grown longer either.
So even if I should probably take the product for at least three months to see any change I've decided to stop completely. The reason for this is because they are quite expensive and even though they do taste good, I'm not sure they are worth it. It was fun to try though :)


Det føles som en evighed siden jeg stoppede min måned med Sugar Bear Hair.
Jeg er godt klar over at en måned ikke er nok til at se resultater, men eftersom en af mine veninder nævnte, at hun lagde mærke til at hendes negle voksede hurtigere end normalt, krydsede jeg fingre for at dette også ville ske hos mig. Dog uden held. Ej mere har jeg set nogen forskel når det kommer til hårvækst og glans i håret, men igen er jeg godt klar over, at en måned ikke er nok til at se en rigtig forandring. Dog må jeg være ærlig og sige, at jeg ikke har tænkt mig at fortsætte. For selvom de smager godt, så bliver det simpelhen for dyrt på sigt. Og da jeg ikke kan garantere en forskel er det for mig at se spild af penge. Selvom det dog var fint nok at prøve ;)

Since 2013, my guilty pleasure has been one direction 🙈I know! I'm totally reliving my teenage years! But the reason has mostly been because of a certain mr Styles! And guess what. He has released his first single as a solo artist called Sign of the Time and let me tell you I'm hooked! Not because it's his song, but because it reminds me of something I can't explain. Like an old memory of something good. I don't know what it is, but it had me listening to it non-stop. It's so much better than I expected and I'm so ready for solo Harry to take on the charts. I can't wait for his album later this year and his new movie. Because let's face it, he's more of my guilty pleasure than 1D ! 🤣 However, I've also been listening to Zayn's music and Niall's single. I guess they are just all finding themselves in their own music and that shows. They all have a lot of potential as solo artists, and I'm glad we finally get to hear them on their own!
If you haven't heard the song already go listen to it here:

And if you've already listened to it go listen to it again and again so that Harry can finally get his number one spot on Spotify that he deserves 👌🏻

Yesterday, I was supposed to do a lot of homework. I didn't. Well, I did end up reading more than thirty pages of our latest novel in class, but that was it. Instead, I got caught up with the new Netflix series #13reasonswhy.

It is based on a book that some of you may have heard of, and some of you may not. I had heard of the book before, but haven't read it. However, I do believe that the series stays fairly close to the book, although the year of the plot has changed from the book to the series.

Now, I'd love to give away the plot and show you the trailer to the series, but I won't. I didn't watch the trailer beforehand, and I'm sure it made the experience even better as I had no idea what was going to happen (Apart from the most obvious things).

I'll tell you some things about the series, though. But without giving away too much. It evolves around a bunch of High School kids. Some which you come to love and others which you come to hate. The plot starts off with this seventeen-year-old guy named Clay (the male protagonist) who finds a lot of tapes on his doorstep. 13 tapes in total. These tapes all have a very important message, and they explain the title of the series 13 Reasons Why. If you absolutely don't know what the series is about then I have to prepare you, it touches some very serious stuff. I will not recommend people under the age of fifteen to watch this. But if you are above 15 and are looking for a new series to watch, you should definitely give this a go. I will warn you, however, you'll get addicted, but it's quite short. (I finished in a day).


To make everything better, I enjoyed the series with tea, cantaloupe and some chocolate. What better way to spend your Sunday? Or Monday for that matter ;)

Hope you'll enjoy it as much as I did.

As I mentioned in this post, I did some shopping in Berlin. Here are some pictures of the things I bought.

I honestly have no idea if this book is good, and I don't know the writer, but the backside of the book really caught my attention, and I could not help but buy it. However, I have to wait quite a long time before I get enough time to read it as we're reading quite a lot of books this semester. I'm in the middle of my seventh book, and we've only been going for two months. So with a lot of other readings too, I barely have time to read for pleasure. But I'll give you a heads up once I'm done with it (whenever that'll be). However, let me know if you'd like me to do a book review of the books I have read this year so far.

As you can see I've also bought some chocolate. Because let's face it l, I'm obsessed with everything sweet. And to my luck chocolate and sweets in general are so much cheaper in Germany. Perhaps it's a good thing I don't live there, if I did I think I'd grow fat.

A friend of mine recommended this mat lipgloss from Body Shop, and so far I really like it. And guess what, that too is cheaper in Germany.

I guess I've always had a love for nail polish, and I really like this brand called Sally Hansen, and just like practically everything else they are also cheaper in Germany which is why I bought three😬

I bought the phone case, cover thing (whatever you'll like to call it) at The Green Market. It almost matches one of my phone covers as that one is also pink. I just thought it'd be a great protecter for my phone whenever it's in my bag with keys and such.

That's all for now. I hope you enjoy your week.

I sincerely apologise for the silence on the blog lately. I've been busy with my studies and I went to Berlin last week to visit my sister. She's staying there all of March. She just wanted a holiday with her friend. The perks of being educated! I can't wait 'till I finish my studies in 3.5 years 🙈 well technically it's 3 years and a few months, but still, I have a long time left, unfortunately.
Anyway, I went to Berlin for four days, and it was such a good trip. Although, public transportation is very good in Berlin, it was really convenient that sis has a car! It made a lot of things much easier and saved us some time which was good considering I only had three full days there. We didn't do a whole lot while I was there, we just relaxed, had some nice food, went to the cinema (twice) and saw some markets. And of course we shopped. My sister however, shopped more than me, though normally it's the other way around.
By the way if you go to Berlin at the right time go to The Green Market. It's only held four times a year (one time for each season), but although it costs 3 euros it was totally worth it, though there were a bit too many people. It's very cozy, and it has a lot of different food tastings. You can read more about it here.

Here you can get a little glimpse of my trip.

These pictures were taken very close to where we were staying.

The cathedral.

By the way, I haven't been to Berlin for almost nine years, so it was nice finally being back. I feel like I'm unintentionally doing a Europe tour 🙈 I mean first, London, then Paris and now Berlin. But hey I only live once, gotta make the best out of it right?

I went to the cinema with a friend to watch Lion, yesterday, and let me tell you it was so good! I cried though, even if I tried holding back my tears. The leading role is so cute. He's this little boy, named Saroo who's just adorable, and him as an adult isn't bad to look at ;) I don't know if any of you have watched Slumdog Millionaire, but Saroo as an adult is the guy from Slumdog Millionaire, Dev Patel. I must admit getting older and growing a beard and letting his hair grow has really suited him. Adulthood looks good on him. So yeah he's fit, the boy is adorable and the whole plot is just amazing. It's based on a true story, I won't tell you what the movie is about though. You can watch the trailer below and get your own idea or instead trust my words and go watch it, you won't regret it. It's such a beautiful movie.
Have a lovely Sunday.

Finally it happened. I went to see the movie everyone's been talking about. I must say it was so not what I expected. Don't get me wrong, I really loved the movie. However, it does have some cliches. The movie is funny at times, but also very emotional. Due to the atmosphere in the cinema there was a time where I completely stopped breathing. I must say it had a lot more dance than me expected and I Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling are not the best singers, but that made it all the more real. I do think it holds an important message. Believe in yourself, have dreams and never stop trying. I do think that is an important message. Nothing comes easy but if you try hard enough you can make it! Don't forget to make dreams reality.

In case you haven't already wAtched the trailer here's the link. Btw the soundtrack is really good!!

Recently, I found a link to these foot pads that are supposed to reduce cellulite while detoxing your body and minimise headaches etc. And I kept thinking if it's that easy then how come everyone aren't using them. I mean if it has all these beneficial factors they would be good for everyone, right? Well as I suspected it's just a scam.
Don't let yourself get easily fooled and watch this video in case you don't believe me.
