all the places.

 
- Hello World. Hope life's treating you all well.
I'm in working mood almost everyday in the gym, as a yoga teacher, with functions, in café, restaurant and hotel. Yes, that's where I work. I get easily bored in one place here in Halmstad cause it's such a small town and I know Halmstad way too well.
Hopefully I don't get stuck here too long. But first I just gotta get my drive's licence that I've been pushing forward a bit... hehe.
But it is in progress right now. I'm actually sitting and reading the book (must be the most boring book in the world history) right now.
 
Back to reading now. Take care everyone!
 

INTERNATIONAL ZUMBA INSTRUCTOR - COPENHAGEN.

I'm starting the day with some photos from the International Zumba Instructor education weekend in Copenhagen with Amazing Steve Boedt.
It was nearly 3 weeks ago I was there. The time really flies away..!
 
Drinking tea at work, trying to keep myself warm in this oh so gray and cold autumn weather.

HEALTHY WILD BERRY SORBET.

 
 
- Do you have any way to ripen bananas and craving for ice cream or sorbet?
Put the bananas in the freezer for a night / few hours and then mix it all up with your choice of frozen berries or fruit.

If you'd like to, you can ad a bit of honey.

Too easy & too good to me true!
 

RELAXING WEEKEND.

 
- Finally some time to relax. Been sleeping 8h last night and today too.
Walked in the forrest, picking mushrooms and taking photos with mum yesterday.
Had a lovely veg / mushroom soup dinner with my yogi friend Suzana and mum and went to my old friend's housewarming party last night. Today I had a delicious Kapha porridge for brekky, tea bag foot-spa and it's now time to go and vote for a better Sweden.
 
These last couple of weeks been hectic. And then I mean waaaay too hectic. The weekend can't get better!
Sunday, good day!
 

A RAINY EVENING IN COPENHAGEN.

 
- Hi world. I found these photos of my lovely danish friend Jeppe when I was in Copenhagen a couple of weeks ago.
The weather was showing clear signs that the summer was far away from us and the autumn here to stay.
But it didn't matter. We were enjoying a beer & a hot cup of tea together, catching up on the 3 years we haven't seen each other.
Reconnecting and reunions, love it!
 
Thanks for a cozy evening J.

HEALTHY HOMEMADE CHAI TEA.

-
We're coming into cold and gray times in the noth so to keep yourself energized and healthy I've been playing in the kitchen with all kinds of recipes.
Lately I've been longing for that popular vegan chai tea that it the No #1 thing people drink during winter in Melbourne.

"One soy chai tea / latte, please."
 
Yepp, you'll hear that sentence everywhere all the time. Especially if you work in a café!
I got pretty tired of that after a while when people always ordered it while I was working. But did I get tired of that amazing smell and taste? NEVER!

 
Here's how I did it at home a while ago..
And each of these spices is packed full of nutrition and anti-inflammatory properties, so you can drink up guilt-free. Use organic ingredients whenever possible.
 
Ingredients:

    24 ounces unsweetened almond or soy milk
    1 teaspoon ground cardamom
    ¾ teaspoon ground cinnamon
    ½ teaspoon ground allspice
    ½ teaspoon finely grated fresh ginger
    ¼ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    1 small pinch coarse ground black pepper

Optional sweeteners:
    1 tablespoon raw honey
 
Recipe: Combine all of the ingredients (except sweeteners) in a small pot over medium heat and whisk to combine. Heat over medium-low heat 5-7 minutes until the flavors have come together; serve immediately. Sweeten to taste.

Chai Tea Variation: Add 1 organic unflavored black or green teabag to each hot serving. Steep for 5 minutes; discard teabag before serving.

Chai Latte Variation: Add 1-2 shots of organic espresso or strong organic coffee to each serving.

choco bake / busy times.

Ph: Photo and cake by me. Healthy chocolate cake, -no sugar, salt or trans fat.
 
- Woha! Over a week of no update. I have totally forgotten that it have been such a long time ago.
Well, I guess I've been so busy with my jobs, heaps of staff meetings, international Zumba instructor education weekend in Copenhagen with famous Steve Boedt, training, drive lessons and all other "every-day-stuff".
 
I'm still crazy busy and don't have much time and energy for the best, working out and hanging out with friends.
But I'm still trying to sort out some stuff and can't wait to get a few things done from my check list.
Stay here with me!

 - Hello world. What a productive day I'm having today.
 
I was so tired last night after my friend's muay thai training that went late last night. Slept for 8h, cleaned the apartment, changed the sheets in my bed, did laundry x3, been reading my ayurveda book in the sun, watched the last half of the movie Boyhood.
Great movie! 8 wins and almost 3h long. Recommending it!
Then I went for my very first driving lesson and I'm now preparing dinner for tonight when mom's coming back to Sweden.
 
A high intense workout and girls night at M's place tonight!

- Good morning world.
05:45am was the time to leave my boyfriend Mr. Pillow and the bed. Work from 06:45am until 4pm today ain't gonna be easy. But I got a good lunch, fruit and a snack prepared and hopefully that's enough to survive.
In this Cold I just wanna eat and drink more to keep the energy up and the heat on.
 
Forgot that I had some more photos from the live show at Tillsammans this summer. One night some other friends from my old school were playing and the crowd was so happy and warm. A lovely evening.
Great gig guys!

- Oh man... a few weeks ago we had a big sushi dinner at home and that was the first time I had sushi this year!
As some know, I LOVE sushi and had it one a week back when I lived in Australia. And haven't had sushi since I was there until now. God, I missed it...
 
If anyone knows the best sushi place in Halmstad, then let me know!

- Oh what a busy week! Working out, working, cooking, baking with friends, cozy evenings, reading, meetings, started to work at my extra job, planning, dumpster diving ect.
 
Had my first yoga class for Actic Sports Club two days ago, and wow.. What a amazing feeling. I wanna have yoga classes everyday! This was and beautiful hour of breathing, connection and warm atmosphere. And everyone was so good, trying their best. Can't wait for next week's class!
 

t w o d a y s l e f t .

 
- Wohow, two day left until I start with my yoga classes at Actic Sports Club!
And am I ready? Not at all! Haha.. time to organize a playlist.
 

bad day in the rain.

 
- Oh, the weather is killing me, and so is my bike too... Har a really bad day yesterday..
Started good though. My yogi friend S came over for some banana cake, tea and chat in the morning. But when I was supposed to ride my bike 7lkm to work in pouring rain with the wind against me, my bike broke down and not a single soul who was driving past me stopped to help me!!! What's wrong with people here?

When something like that happened in Australia I didn't even need to look up for someone to help me. There was Always somebody coming and helping. And that's how it's supposed to be. Come one Sweden (or maybe it's just Halmstad?). Show some solicitude. Do you know we're all from the same planet and we should all help eachother and not only our Close friends and family...

Any way... On my way back home I realized that my wheel was flat. And more wind and rain, of cause...
Finally when I got back home I had a few minutes to refrec myself and get some cozy atmosphare in the apartment befor Sara & Mia came over for cooking night.
 
The dinner went well, much better than the bike ride! A vegeterian Masala with chickpeas and Indian Spices was our mission and it was so yummy!
 
That's all for me right now.
I was so over it all after the bad bike rides and didn't have any mental of fysycal energy so I ended up sleeping for 9.5h last night!
 

four girls, four souls, over 15 years.

 
- Four souls, four girls, from kindergarten & first year in school and here we still are today.

These crazy girls are some of my oldest friends in Sweden. It's been such a interesting experience to follow all of you through the years. Around 15 years of memories with you girls and I'm hoping for more..!
Who know, maybe we'll be chatting over coffee with or kids running around and fighting in the future? Haha..
