Everyday Saviours

IMG_0581p IMG_0583p IMG_0585p

I’m away from the place I live in for a couple of days and I’m really happy that I took with me only what I really need.

But there are items that I carry in my bag every single day no matter where I am and sometimes they are literally saviours, so I decided to share them with you.

Water. I drink a lot of water, I just feel that my organism  needs water and there is definitely a difference in my skin condition when I drink less. It’s very important to stay hydrated.

Snacks. I get hungry every 3-4 hours, but like really hungry. Nothing can replace a good lunch but sometimes we need a little energy between meals. This one here isn’t the healthiest bar but I picked it because it has a lot of nuts inside, love nuts.
If there there isn’t a chance to wash my hands before eating, I always use antibacterial gel.

Lip balm. As a lip balm addict, I often carry at least 3 with me. I may not use lipstick for hours but my lips need to be nourished and I try to apply lip balm whenever I can. Here you see the Burt’s Bees Rejuvenating Lip Balm with Açaí berry that has Vitamins A, C, D and E, antioxidants and omega oils.

Concealer. We all use it for touch-ups during the day, gotta hide those dark circles. The one today is by Bourjois and it’s their 123 Perfect CC Eye Cream that I reviewed several months ago here.

Blotting papers. If you have oily or combination skin, you know the struggle. I like the Essence All about matt! papers because they don’t have so much powder that can go all over your clothes but they get the job done. The packaging is travel friendly and they’re super cheap (should have taken more from Germany).

What are your everyday saviours?


Weekend Trip: The Photo Post #2

Happy weekend everyone!

In June I posted some pictures from different trips that me and my boyfriend took around Norway. This time I’m showing you only one place because it’s magical! If you ever come to Norway, be sure to visit the Geirangerfjorden.

Was I convincing?

The Goodreads Tag


I think this is a pretty old tag but I still see people doing it, I love reading so I decided to do it too.

What was the last book you marked as read?
“I think therefore I play” by Andrea Pirlo. I love biographies and I love football so when the book is about one of the greatest players of our time, I had to read it and I loved it. Also, there are some great quotes, pretty short book unfortunately.

What are you currently reading?
“The art of racing in the rain” by Gareth Stein.

What was the last book that you marked as to read?
I think it was “Twelve Years a Slave” by Solomon Northup. I constantly add new books to ‘to-read’.

What do you plan to read next?
That’s quite a dilemma, I’m torn between some ‘delicious’ books by Anthony Capella and “Stillness and speed” by Dennis Bergkamp (another biographical read).

Do you use the star rating system?
Most of the time, yes.

Do you have a wishlist?
No, because I use ‘to read’ as a wishlist.

What book do you want to buy next?
I use Kindle because I can carry it everywhere with me and it’s absolutely loaded, yet I keep adding more and more books so you never know.

Do you have any favourite quotes?
Tons! I write them down right after I read them and it’s impossible to put them all here but here are several:

“A book is a loaded gun in the house next door…Who knows who might be the target of the well-read man?” 
― Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451

“Every true love and friendship is a story of unexpected transformation. If we are the same person before and after we loved, that means we haven’t loved enough.” 

― Elif Shafak, The Forty Rules of Love

“My contention is that your blessings derive from your positive contributions. But they must come from the heart. Not because of what you expect in return. Otherwise what you contributed was a loan, not a gift.”

― Gil Scott-Heron, The Last Holiday

and many many more…

Who are your favourite authors?
Impossible to answer this one, there are so many outstanding authors. The only thing I can say is that there is one who makes me very emotional and I’m crying and laughing and crying when I read something from him no matter if it’s a book or song lyrics and it’s Tiziano Ferro.

Have you joined any groups?
No, actually I’m active on Goodreads only for myself. I mean, it’s kind of keeping an archive for myself, checking reviews and so on but I don’t even have friends there, I haven’t even added my boyfriend I think.

It would be pretty interesting for me to see what you like to read so if you feel for it, just do this tag! :-)






Weekend Trip: The Photo Post

I live in Norway and we’re not lucky to always have the sun shining, blue sky and more than +10C, so whenever we have a warm weekend, me and my boyfriend are trying to spend it out roadtripping. Here are some of the photos that I’ve taken during our weekend trips that hopefully will inspire you to go somewhere out in nature, breathe fresh air and enjoy life! :-)

Happy weekend!
