Esay like Sunday morning


Good Morning,

I woke up before 7am this morning. I love to wake up early on the weekends have a good brakfast read a book and after that start my day with a sweaty workout. Thats the perfect Sunday for me nothing makes me feel as bad as waking up on Sundays with a hangover. I hate it! Im not a big drinker so when I go out to have a drink or two I still get a hangover and my brain wont cooperate with me all day, is like a punishment.

I have my oatmeal with, blueberries, banana, peanut butter, almond milk and hot lemon/ginger tea for breakfast, yummy! We don’t have any big plans for the day, is too cold for us to go out so I guess we will make some dinner later, watch a movie and head off to bed since I have a early wake up call tomorrow. Now I need to eat my breakfast and go to the gym.

Have a lovely Sunday





La Colombe d’Or – Saint Paul de Vence



Colombe d’Or is a world famous  hotel and restaurant located in beautiful little village Saint Paul de Vence. This place is so historical and beautiful I don’t even think I can describe it but I will try.

We did not say at the hotel but we got the chance to have dinner one night at the beautiful restaurant. Since I love art this was a like a dream come true. It can be very difficult to get a table for dinner in summertime and since we only stayed for couple of days Frederik told me we couldn’t get a table it was all full booked. I was so disappointed. I honestly did not care about the food I just wanted to see the art since I have been reading about and I was so excited. But Frederik lied, he had booked a table for us and just wanted surprise me. We got a table outside in the beautiful garden and everything was just perfect it was so many beautiful details  and faraway from being rigid, just how I like it. The meny was handwritten in french with lots of colors and even if I don’t understand french and specially not when its handwritten I did not care. My thought was everything here must be good. And it was! Expensive but delicious and worth every penny.

I had to take a break and get myself together this was way to exciting for me





“No, Im not leaving I want to stay here forever!”


I have been looking for this book so long and I knew they sold it at the restaurant but I wasn’t sure if they still had it. So when we got to our table this book was there. Frederik knew how much I wanted it and he wanted to surprise me AGAIN. Can you guess how happy I was? Believe it or not but I was crying and I still love this book and I take good care of it. Is not too expensive but good things don’t have to be expensive to be loved 🙂 

If you ever have the opportunity to come here please do. You don’t have to eat dinner you can have lunch just make sure to book. If you would like to know more about this lovely place visit: la-colombe-dor History or read this article from:  T-magazine NY times

Saint-Paul-de-Vence weekend getaway


View from our hotel room 





If you are like me and like to have things planned in good time and love to have something to look forward to then the time has come for you start think about your summer vacation or perhaps you are just need a weekend to get away from your everyday life. We all know that the price is lower when you book your flight and hotel in time so don’t wait.

Last summer me and Frederik decided we wanted to visit South of France. We do that every year since Frederik has lived there and he loves it. But Frederik is not a planner he is very spontaneous and if he decides he wants to go somewhere he can be at the airport in 30 minutes and pay 5 times more for the ticket or the hotel. As you probably understand this does NOT work for me. I don’t want to pay 5 times more just because he can’t plan something in advance. And also want and need to know so that I have the time to wax my legs, clean my house, pack my outfits, wash my hair… you know everything that us girls need to do before a vacation.

Anyway, after checking the flights (last minute) we decided we could take our car and drive to South of France, since we were not in a hurry and did not know when we needed to return back home this sounded like a good plan. Although this probably cost us more we had such a good time and got to see so many beautiful places one of them was Saint-Paul-de-Vence.

Saint- Paul-de-Vence is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to. This little village has it all; small shops, restaurants, galleries, beautiful nature and amazing views from every angle.




How I would like my lunch to look like every day

Even the lemons were sweaty 


And me; very happy to be here

I highly recommend you to visit Saint-Paul-de-Vence. You wont get disappointed I can promise you that. Everyone we recommend this place to has been totally in love with it. If you go here I would not recommend you to stay longer then 4 days in summertime. It gets very hot, the village is very small and its very quiet. So for relaxation my opinion is that 3-4 days is enough.

I was thinking to write about the world famous restaurant La Colombe d`Or in this post as well, but I think I will save it for my next post since that place deserves to have attention on its own. I have so many pictures from the restaurants I would like to show you so stay tuned.


If you have any questions or you would like to know something else please let us know.

Everyone that knows me also know that I’m a real face mask junkie. I love to try out new face mask and I also love to make my own homemade mask. After years of experience I learned that my own homemade usually works best for me. I also learned that the price doesn’t have to be high for a good mask. My favorites are usually made in Korea, I think Korean people are one of the best in the world when it comes to skincare.

Anyway, when I was at the airport last time I was in London I felt my skin really needed a hydration boost (after my birthday weekend). I walked to Boots and I saw Soap & Glory, my first thought was I liked the package of these products, very retro. I look at the price and got surprised, the price wasn’t high at all so my thought was “will this really be useful?”. They had 3 for 2 so as I started to look after a face mask I read the mask was made in Korea and I thought this is worth a try. I picked 2 face mask and cleansing wipes totally I think I payed less then 15£.

On the airplane I had all three seats for myself, this was a perfect time for me to get comfortable. I removed my makeup with my new wipes and put on one of the masks… Wow, I felt how it was cooling down my face at the same time it was a burning and tickling feeling (in a good way). I think I had the mask on for 40 minutes on the description it says 15-20 minutes but the sheet mask was still so wet that I decided I wanted keep it on for longer. Best of all is when you remove the mask  you don’t have to wash it off you just let it dry.

Couple days ago I tried my second mask and it was as good as the first one. I felt I got the hydration and the glow I was looking for so I was very pleased. I will for sure buy some new products from Soap & Glow to try out next time i found them.


Here are the cleansing wipes I also bought that I like very much. Even if I only use wipes when I’m in bad hurry or Im too tired to do my nighttime skincare routine. Guess I’ve been tired often since I’m have two wipes left 😉





Delicious and healthy chocolate balls


It feels like I’m only writing about food these days but I just had to share this delicious recipe with you. Im really trying to stay away from sweets and I find it so difficult since I love chocolate, ice-cream, cakes and everything else that don’t help me lose any calories. I love to bake (hate to cook) so when I find a recipe like this that is easy and more healthy then my regular chocolate balls with butter and sugar I feel like I already lost some weight 😉

4 tbs cocoa powder
200 g fresh dates (around 20-25)
10 tbs coconut oil
1 dl coffee
1/2 dl coconut flakes
7 dl oatmeal

Around 2 dl coconut flakes

Add the dates (without the “heart”), coconut oil, cocoa and coffee in a bowl  and mix it with a mixer to a smooth cream. Pour the oatmeal and the coconut flakes and mix with a spoon. Roll to balls and the topping you prefer, I like coconut and chose it here.

Done and ready to eat!
