My favourite products

I got introduced to NuSkin about 4 years ago and I was a natural sceptic as everyone are to new things. I didn’t really use any products on my skin and at the time I thought it was a waste og money and time. I’ve always been very lucky to have good skin, but after trying these amazing products from Nu Skin I found out that it is in-fact possible to get even better skin. How about that?! So in this post i want to share with you my favourite products and why I love them <3 So here they are:

Exfoliant scrub: I love that this scrub has small grains in it – a lot of the scrubs I’ve tried over the years doesn’t have enough grains and I feel like I’m just rubbing a think cream on my face – which obviously doesn’t do anything for my skin at all. I use this probably 2-3 times a week to make sure my skin is ready to absorb all the good ingredients from the other products.

Creamy moisturising mask : it gives my skin so much moisture, and my skin glows after using it. I normally leave it on for at least 2 hours or I put it on before bedtime and wash it off the day after.

Marine mud mask: This product should be mandatory if you live in a city with loads of pollution (like Oslo or London). It draws out everything that clogges up your pores, and it leaves your skin super soft and clean. You can even see how the mask is working when it has dried, as the dirt in your skin will show on the surface of the face mask! How amazing is that?

Sole solution: I’ve probably used this product the longest, and that’s because it really helps my sore feet after a long day at work. I walk quite a lot and we all know how that affects the way our feet looks at the end of the day! I normally put it on my feet after a shower and then I put socks on to make sure I don’t leave footprints all over my house! Sole solution also works for dry elbows and knees, and it’s also a miracle worker on eczema

Celltrex ultra recovery fluid: I tried this product for the first time right after Christmas, as it was a christmas present from Siri and my dad, and I have to say that this product is much better than I ever expected! I’ve never used a serum before, as I never saw the point, but this product changed the way I think about these small bottles with liquid gold. I used to have scares on my chin and between my eyebrows from spots when I was a teenager, but these scares are as almost gone and I don’t use as much makeup (concealer) as I used to - I have nothing to conceal anymore!

Whitening toothpaste: Last, but not least I want to write about our amazing whitening toothpaste. This products has changed the way I look at my teeth and it was really made my teeth whiter. It doesn’t contain any bad chemicals + it contains fluoriode! Double win

So here you have my favourite products! I hope it was informative and I'm looking forward to sharing more of my stories with you :) xx

Super Foods and supplements

Since I stopped eating meat in September I've eaten a lot healthier! When you can eat whatever you want, it's so easy to just pick up a frozen pizza with pepperoni or some other kind of ready meal. When you have certain restrictions you have to get more creative - which is loads of fun! I have found a few favorite recipes that I will show you later, but today I want to talk about super foods and nutrition supplements.

There are loads of foods you are "supposed" to eat every day to get enough nutrition, foods like avocado, broccoli, flax seeds ect, but sometimes it's hard to eat enough of these foods! Because even though you eat a salad for lunch, you're probably not eating enough - you need to eat quite a lot of salad for it to count as 1 of your 5 a day.

When you don't eat meat it's so hard to get enough vitamin B12, as that vitamin normally only comes from eating animal protein. Vitamin B12 is a vitamin that comes from the soil where grass and vegetables grow, but when you buy a carrot from the supermarket it's so scrubbed down that you won't get any soil on it (thank god), which means no vitamin B12 (vegetables don't absorb any of the vitamin B12 either). As a vegetarian (and a non-dairy eater), it's important for me to take supplements to stay healthy and strong. But as I said, it's very hard to get enough vitamins and minerals in general, as there are almost no vitamins and minerals in meat and processed foods. I take a supplement called LifePAK+ and I also take omega 3, both from Nu Skin (Pharmanex). They give me all the vitamins and minerals I need, including B12.

Because, after all, staying healthy throughout life begins with eating right.

Courgette spaghetti - recipe will come later

Under is a list of the vitamins and minerals which helps your body stay young and healthy!

Vitamin C – an effective antioxidant, vitamin C also supports the production of collagen in your skin. Collagen is the protein responsible for making your skin young-looking.
-       Foods: Guavas, bell peppers, kale, kiwi, broccoli
Vitamin E – is another antioxidant that helps fight free radicals in your body. Free radicals are one of the major causes of premature ski ageing
-       Foods: Almonds, avocado, spinach, shrimp, sunflower seeds
Coenzyme Q10 – is able to slow down the oxidation process in the skin, fighting the signs of aging.
-       Foods: Coldwater tuna, coldwater salmon, coldwater herring, beef, chicken.
Omega 3 – has been shown to help reduce the apperance of both acne and wrinkles. It also helps repair the skin
            -     Foods: Flax seed, chia seeds, walnuts, edamame beans, anchovies

Marine Mud Mask

Looking good, right?

Today I want to share a little secret with you guys! Or I'm not sure if you can call it a secret, but it's good anyway. Have you ever felt like your skin look tired and you can't control those horrible black spots on your nose? Well, I have, and I also have found the solution! It's an amazing face mask with Glacial Marine Mud. It contains sea botanicals which draws out any dirt you have in your skin, leaving it healthy and better looking. It also works as a mini-scrub, meaning it removes dead skin cells. I always reach for this face mask if I'm starting to get a spot on my face (or body..), and it almost always disappears before it's even appears! Want to hear more? Comment on this post and I'll get back to you :)

A new project

Hello and happy Wednesday. We're halfway to the weekend already, and it's only 50 days till Christmas! How crazy is that?
Anyway, I wanted to tell you guys about a new project I'm starting up with. 3 years ago my step mum brought home a lot of skincare products from a company called Nu Skin. All of us were a bit skeptical to these new products from this unknown brand, but we wanted to give it a try. I fell in love with a few of the products and I continued to use them every day (day cream, eyelash serum, face mask ect). Now, 3 years later, I want to take this one step further and I've decided to try out more products and write about it here on the blog. The first product I want to write about is a genius machine called Galvanic Spa, so keep an eye out for the next post.

We're going on holiday!

Mykonos - Greece

Look at this amazing place. On a rainy day like today I'm dreaming about going here. Waking up with the sunshine on your face, go to the beach for a morning swim before the world wakes up and after that a delicious breakfast in a little café in the narrow streets of this beautiful island. I'm looking for places to go, and Mykonos in Greece have been a favorite for a long time. I want to go NOW!
(All the pictures are from pinterest)


Hello lovely people. The previous Saturday I was out and about with my boyfriend, and this is what I wore. Amazing dress from Laundry Boutique (found here), and my new favorite boots.  Last week I finally got the boots of my dreams, and I absolutely love them. They will be worn on many occasions this autumn/winter, and already this week I'll take some outfit photos. I hope you have an amazing day and I'll pop by later with some last minute holiday inspiration!

On the hunt for the perfect boots

New season means new clothes. I'm lucky enough to work with fashion every day, and I'm always on Pinterest and other medias to find inspiration. Right now I'm hunting for the perfect pairs of boots for fall, and I'm head over heels in love with this pair! Perfect shape, perfect color combination and perfect hight. Autumn is, for me, the best fashion season - I love layering. You will definitely see me in an outfit like this, probably more than just once, the next few months.
