Sunshine and Sushi | Outfit

What I'm Wearing:
Knit Cardigan from H&M
Necklace from Pieces
White Top from Vero Moda
Belt from a secondhand store
Black Pants from H&M
Boots from Pieces

Last week I was off work for a couple of days and spent them in Malmö, it was such a blessing, being able to relax and spend precious time with dear friends and family, That's really one of the top things I love to spend time on. On my way home from Malmö I met with a friend, and that's always a good opportunity to dress up! In my opinion the knit cardigan and necklace really dress up this, dark pants and white top, outfit.

And seriously who can say no to sushi?

Foodie Weekend

I love food and I love company, so that's what I spent my weekend with.
It's my last free weekend, before I completely move to Malmö, cooking with friends and enjoying that delicious food. We decided on an indian classic butter chicken  which was spicy and aromatic. Of course we couldn't end our evening without desserts, so macaroons it was!

At some point I will share the recipe for the butter chicken we ate, which was delicious!
The macaroons was cheating though, came straight out of a box, very easy haha!

My Graduation Day

I finally pulled myself together and got the pictures from my graduation day, and they are so good. You can see that the atmosphere is good, everybody is happy and the sun is shining - we were super lucky with the weather, 30 minutes after we went inside it started raining.
Of course we were all excited to finish the education, but it was also an emotional day since we knew we were never gonna be at school, all of us together, again. We enjoyed the time together with good food.

I was actually wearing a very casual outfit, since all my clothes were in Malmö so the only thing that is actually mine in this outfit are the jeans, the top and the pumps are my sister's.

So happy to have finished the education and being able to move on and I can't wait for next week to pass so I can completely move to Malmö and spend some precious time with my fiancé!

Happy Monday everybody!

Oatmeal & Coconut Cookies | Recipe

Some days I wanna pamper myself, with food! So i like to bake something and what better than healthy oatmeal and coconut cookies?

This batch will make about 18 cookies, you will need:

- 2 Eggs
- 200 g Sugar
- 200 g Unsalted butter (room temperature)
- 2 tbsp Honey
- 1 handful of linseed
- 5 handfuls of oatmeal
- 2 handfuls of shredded coconut
- 1/2 tsp Soda
- A pinch of salt
- 200 g Flour

Mix everything together in the order listed and put a tablespoonful of batter approximately 4-5 cm apart on a baking sheet. Bake them for 20-30 mins (depends on your oven so keep and eye on them) at 200 degrees Celsius. To make sure they are done stick a wooden toothpick in the center of a cookie and if there is no batter on the toothpick they are ready. They should be golden brown and just slightly crispy at the edges.

And they come out beautiful ready to enjoy with a lovely cup of tea.
The tea I'm drinking is a Green tea with Jasmine from a little shop called "The Tea Embassy" placed in Germany, Hamburg. Right in the central train station, it's the most cozy little tea shop! Check it out if you are a tea lover and happen to be in Hamburg.

Bon Appétit! :)

Casual Knit | Outfit

Hi guys!
I hope you all are having a lovely Tuesday, I'm home sick, apparently having a couple of days off is not healthy for me since I get sick every time I haven't worked for a small period of time (talk about being a workaholic huh?), really hope I can go back to work tomorrow!

What I'm Wearing
H&M Knit Sweater
H&M Gray Jeans
Pieces Booties
H&M Bag

Anyway... Last week when I was in Malmö I went out for a coffee with a friend, the weather was kinda hard to figure out, it's was sunny but windy and I opted for a light knit sweater jeans and a scarf, the sweater was light enough that it didn't get too hot even when the sun was out, nice and casual and almost 100% H&M.

I've already started wearing fall colors and I can't wait to take full use of my fall wardrobe, it's so nice wrapping yourself up in beautiful layers with different textures!

Pai Skincare | Review

Hi guys!
Remember my obsession with Pai Skincare? Well.... I bought some of them and here's my favorites :)

1. Camellia & Rose Hydrating Cleansers
This comes with a muslin cloth if you buy 100 or 200 ml and its the most gentle and refreshing cleanser i have ever used on my skin, it leaves the skin exfoliated, fresh and clean. And the good feeling clean without being dried out, i feel like most other cleansers leave the skin "too clean", which in the end makes the skin dry and flaky. But this one deep cleans without drying out thanks to all the lovely oils.
It's extremely good as make-up remover too, especially eye-make-up, it just melts away!

2. Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil
This oil is a lifesaver for my acne scars and dry spots, it's so light but gives the skin so much, I fell a difference every time I use it. On hot summer days where creams are too heavy and make the skin feel like it's choking, I opt for this and a gentle toner and that's all i need. It adsorbs quickly into the skin and leaves it moisturized.

3. Bergamot Lip Balm
This 100 % organic lip balm is sooo good, it's smells heavenly and then it really lasts long, haven't even made a dent in it yet, using this once a day is enough to keep my lips hydrated, it melts into the lips, soothing. Very versatile too, I use it on dry spots on my hands sometimes when I've forgotten my hand cream (happens a lot!).

What I really love is how they are a 100% transparent about what's in their products, how much of it is organic and what's not. They don't try to hide nasty stuff behind pretty names, everything is in plain English for everybody to understand.

Buying these gorgeous products has been a really good investment. Of course they all live up to my hippie standards, all natural, certified organic and perfect for sensitive skin! I feel a difference in my skin and also in my mind, since I can use these products with a good conscience knowing they are clean and healthy. What more can you ask for?

I will definitely repurchase these products and can recommend all of them (also for acne-prone skin) :)
