When did you start blogging and what motivated you to start blogging?

What a great question! I started blogging many years ago but this blog is about 3 years old (don’t quote me on that lol) but over the years I was really never consistent to be honest because I used to doubt myself and what I had to offer. What got my started was really the need to share something meaningful and connect with people. Share some love and some light with others. I finally feel like I got the hang of it now because it comes naturally which is awesome because I love connecting with you all!

How do you usually start your mornings?

 I love my sleep and I don’t like waking up but once I do I am happy as a girl can be. I don’t like to say that I am not a morning person but I am not a morning person. Haha:-) Anyways I start my mornings with a little prayer when ever I remember and think positive thoughts for the day. Then wash my face and brush my teeth. I am not a breakfast person but I do push myself to eat it because it the most important meal of the day. Haha. There is no secret to my morning routines other than getting up and getting things done. What I do hope is to be one of those people who loves early mornings, early runs and morning meditations so let’s hope that all it takes is good habits that I can work towards!

What is your go to method to make you happy/optimistic when your having a bad day?

If I am having a bad day the people around me know. I wear my feelings do to being HSP. When I have bad days I just really keep to myself and find a way to get back on track. So I try to do what ever that usually puts me in a good mood. I listen to music, I sing, take walks, workout and really try to find the silver lining in my situation or mood. Trying to find a away to be in a gratitude state of mind. It’s hard to stay down when you are counting your blessings you know! But with all that said I am really a happy and bubbly person most of the time! Haha:-)

What inspires you?

People inspire me. People who support people. People who make their on path and live their own kind of life. People who care for the planet and animals and people who like to see others win. They inspire me to be better, to do better and to know better.

Have you ever had any pets?

This answer may surprise you guys but I have had a dog named Rocky balboa and a rabbit named Leonardo DiCaprio (don’t ask lol). Now we have of course our family dog which is Rex and I have two turtles named Donatello & Leonardo ( Leo and Doni for short) after ninja turtles:-). I really don’t know if I am ever going to get more pets but if I do I think maybe a cat. I don’t know.

What is your favorite thing about living in Norway?

You guys had a lot of questions about Norway!! There is so many things I could write down but I think Norway deserves it’s on blog post so watch out for this space! But my favorite thing must be that we live in a free and peaceful country. When I see what is happening around the world I just get so thankful for a country as beautiful as Norway.

Hello, beautiful people!I hope you all got an amazing start on this new week! Today I wanted to talk you guys about temporary tattoo designsMy favorite thing about temporary tattoos is that it gives me a fun way to express myself without having to deal with my two biggest fears: needles and the fear of permanent marking on my body. Even though I think real tattoo’s can be gorgeously done! Temporary tattoo designs are a less painful and inexpensive way to sport body art!

So when my packed arrived from puretatts.com you can just guess how exited I was! Pure tatts are perfect for the beach, parties, festivals and concerts. Anywhere you and your skin might be seen having fun. Just apply, glimmer and go! I am rocking the good Karma collection and for me personally I like a simple look but can’t wait to try them with different outfits and styles! Be more daring! The best part is that with every puretatts purchase, you are supporting their charity of the month as 10% of their proceeds are donated. Pure tatts last 4-6 days, are safe, non toxic and easy to apply. Just add water and to remove : Apply baby oil or olive oil to skin and rub gently with a cloth. Do not apply to sensitive skin, near eyes or if allergic to adhesive.


HOW TO APPLY

Clean and dry the skin

Cut out the tattoo precisely

Remove the clear sheet

Place the tattoo face down on oil free skin

Dab with a wet paper towel for about 30 seconds

Slowly remove the paper

You are done! Enjoy the good vibes.

 

I’M SURE YOU’VE HEARD THIS ADVICE BEFORE!

May 2, 2016

Hello, darlings! Monday is here and I am ready for a new week and a brand new month! As I am feeling inspired and motivated more than ever these days I felt like writing down a list of few of the things I like to get done this month. I’m sure you’ve heard this advice before. Write your goals down. If they’re not written down, they’re just dreams. When you write things down, it sets off a chain of events that will change your life. I am a firm believer of writing them down. 

1. It forces you to clearly define what your goals are. It forces clarity. 2. It frees up room in your mind to take your thinking to the next level. 3. It incorporates all three learning techniques and stimulates creativity. 4. It’s a nice way of staying motivated and accountable to the goals you set for yourself. Below is some of the goals I have set for myself to accomplish this month. Do you write your goals down?


MY GOALS FOR THE MONTH OF MAY.

Be in bed by 11:00 PM and out of bed by 09:00 AM.

YOU BECOME WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT.

April 27, 2016

All that remains in the present are the voice, the presence, and the importance of fulfilling my mission. I don’t regret difficulties I experienced; I think they helped me to become the person I am today, I feel the way a warrior must feel after years of training; he doesn’t remember the details of everything he learned, but he knows how to strike when the time is right. I can choose either to be a victim of the world or an adventurer in search of treasure. It’s all a question of how I view my life. We will only understand the miracle of life fully when we allow the unexpected to happen. Every day, God gives us the sun–and also one moment in which we have the ability to change everything that makes us unhappy.

Every day, we try to pretend that we haven’t perceived that moment, that it doesn’t exist–that today is the same as yesterday and will be the same as tomorrow. But if people really pay attention to their everyday lives, they will discover that magic moment. It may arrive in the instant when we are doing something mundane, like putting our front-door key in the lock; it may lie hidden in the quiet that follows the lunch hour or in the thousand and one things that all seem the same to us. But that moment exists–a moment when all the power of the stars becomes a part of us and enables us to perform miracles.

Try to find pleasure in the speed that you’re not used to. Changing the way you do routine things allows a new person to grow inside of you. But when all is said and done, you’re the one who must decide how you handle it. We must never stop dreaming. Dreams provide nourishment for the soul, just as a meal does for the body. But if you believe yourself worthy of the thing you fought so hard to get, then you become an instrument of God, you help the soul of the world, and you understand why you are here. Everything, absolutely everything on this earth makes sense, and even the smallest things are worthy of our consideration.

In the beginning there was only a small amount of injustice abroad in the world, but everyone who came afterwards added their portion, always thinking it was very small and unimportant, and look where we have ended up today. What is a personal calling? It is God’s blessing, it is the path that God chose for you here on Earth. Whenever we do something that fills us with enthusiasm, we are following our legend. However, we don’t all have the courage to confront our own dream.

In life, a person can take one of two attitudes: to build or to plant. The builders might take years over their tasks, but one day, they finish what they’re doing. Then they find that they’re hemmed in by their own walls. Life loses its meaning when the building stops. Then there are those who plant. They endure storms and all the vicissitudes of the seasons, and they rarely rest. But unlike a building, a garden never stops growing. And while it requires the gardener’s constant attention, it also allows life for the gardener to be a great adventure. Gardeners always recognize each other, because they know that in the history of each plant lies the growth of the whole world. In order to have faith in your own path, a warrior does not need to prove that someone else’s path is wrong.

THE BEAUTY BENIFITS OF TURMERIC

April 20, 2016
Have you ever tried to make your own turmeric face mask before? In this post I am going to share with you one of my skin care secrets that will help your skin look beautiful again. After adding the natural ingredient to my daily skin care routine all of my skin problems have slowly faded away.

If you are like me and regularly make your own skin care treatments, try adding a bit of turmeric to your favorite face mask recipe next time, or you can make your own turmeric face mask! Turmeric mask will help clear and smooth your skin, minimize your pores and make your skin appear fuller and plumper. It works for me and I believe in sharing is caring! So what is turmeric? Turmeric, commonly known as ‘haldi’ in India, is a spice derived from the roots of the curcuma longa plant. Being native to South Asia, this spice has been used in Indian cuisines from centuries. Turmeric is also prescribed in Indian medicine for various skincare issues, like puffiness, wrinkles and eczema. Besides this, it is used for cuts and burns due to its antiseptic effect and ability to promote healing.

Turmeric has been used as a beauty product for centuries. It is an inexpensive and natural way of treating several skin problems and getting a flawless skin. It keeps skin soft and smooth, makes it glow, tackles acne and helps bust hyper-pigmentation. People with oily skin or acne scars who use turmeric on a regular basis can expect a noticeable improvement in the quality of their skin. Turmeric is an antioxidant that fends off free radicals that cause premature aging.

Turmeric is an anti-inflammatory and antibacterial agent. Its anti-inflammatory properties help to reduce redness from blemishes and rosacea, and the antibacterial properties disinfect the skin and combat acne. It also reduces the appearance of dark circles  and it can also help to correct an uneven skin tone. Many people who use turmeric skin treatments stop using foundation altogether. If you’re apprehensive about trying turmeric treatment, please do your own research first and of course, as with any home remedy, you should consult your doctor before using this treatment.

How to Make a Turmeric Face Mask:

Heat up a teaspoon of raw honey in the microwave for 10-15 seconds.

In a dish, combine the honey with a teaspoon of turmeric and a teaspoon of milk or Greek yogurt.

Wash your face, pull your hair back and apply the mask to your face using your fingers or a spoon. Be careful applying the mask, as turmeric can stain.

Let the mask dry and harden for about 20 to 30 minutes.

Rinse the mask off with warm water.
