3 tip of the week

Avene Thermal Spring Water Avene Thermal Spring Water

Okey, I know this week just started but I will share my 3 tip of this week with you anyway. Couple weeks ago I saw this product on youtube. I cant remember witch channel but I think it was Vogues. Someone was recommending it and I thought I should try. Ive been using Avene cold cream for many years now. Not really on regular basis, most in wintertime when my skin is really dry. So my thought was its worth a try. I started with a purchase of the small bottle just to see how my face would react since I have such a sensitive skin. I brought it with my on our latest trip to Istanbul, I use it on the flight for the first time just to keep my face hydrated during the flight. I was surprised, I loved it and so did my face. I felt so soft and my skin did not breakout. I used it in the morning when I washed my face and didn’t need any moisturizing cream after. During the day I would use it whenever I felt I needed some refreshment. A small amount goes long way so be careful otherwise you will look oily.

I repurchase a big bottle when I got back home from our trip and I use it now on daily. I would definitely recommend you to try this. Start with a small bottle and see how you skin reacts. The other thing with this product is the good price. The big bottle cost around 100sek which is around 8 dollars. You can find in most pharmacy but the price is even better online.

Im well known for being totally obsessed with my nails. I love to color them (everyday if I can) and I take care of them as much as I can. But stupid me one day (around 3 months ago) decided to get them fixed and have gel polish. I was on my way home when I saw a nail salon and had this brilliant idea I would go there and just do it right away. I think I had gel like 3 times before and I remember I liked how it was done but never done it since then cuz I like to color them myself. Anyway, it was done so bad, the polish was so thick my nails underneath was hurting. I don’t think I realized how ugly they were until I saw a picture of them 2 days after. Im not kidding when I say they were like 0.5cm thick if not more. I felt so trashy. I was hiding my hands. So I decided to get them removed. I looked up a good nail studio and the girl there said she never saw anything like that. She was really kind and hone (is that the right name) them down. But this time she hone them so much that I almost did not have any nail left. I have never experienced a pain like that before. I couldn’t sleep during the night since the pain was so high. I could defiantly not paint my nails since they were so fragile, every movement hurt. For couple of weeks I thought my nails would never repar again I would never be able to paint them again. My life was over!

I did some research and read that TRIND Nail Repair had some really good reviews. I went to the store desperate and got me one. Ive been using it 2.5 month now and I can say that it changed my life. My nails are slowly getting their life back. They are getting thicker, more glossier, longer and overall they start to look and feel healthy again. This nail repair did really help me and I’ve been using it as a nail polish as well since I think it looks good.

Kullaberg National Park, Sweden. Sometimes I forget how beautiful Sweden truly is. Maybe because I leaved here my hole life that I don’t longer see the beauty or at least don’t appreciate it as much now when I’m older and travel more. What a shame! On Saturday we decided to make a little trip to Kullaberg.

Kullaberg is a national park in Skåne with breathtaking view of steep cliffs rising from the sea and rocky outcrops. Its so peaceful and beautiful. If you ever pass by north western Skåne you have to visit it. Don’t forget to bring a picnic basket with you and take comfortable shoes.

Weekend with celebrities

Hi,

Did you have a good weekend? – We sure did. Friday we had some meetings in Copenhagen and did not have any plants for the evening but somehow we found out that  was playing at Tivoli and I got so excited so I forced Fredrik to go with me, actually he really likes Burhan G so he wanted to see him as well.

We had a nice dinner at Nimb restaurant before the show. I LOVE Nimb I think is the most beautiful hotel/restaurant in Copenhagen and I never get disappointed. Later Burhan G started playing the atmosphere was on top. I know some (most) of his songs are a bit cheesy but I don’t mind I actually love almost every of his songs. I do actually prefer to hear him in smaller concert (we did that last year) since I feel I gets much more personal. But anyway I got to hear him and sing along so I was happy.

 

Saturday – we had some meetings, did some workout and ended the day playing with Sean and his friends.

Sunday – Watched Sean play football, drew by Daniel Fross https://brilleglas.nu and we got to customize our own glasses. Im so happy with how mine looks and they are exactly how I picture them in my head. I will do a blogpost about them since they need some attention own their own.

And then it was time for us to see Justin Timberlake. WOW what a performance!! We had VIP tickets that included dinner but since we ran late we missed the dinner at got there 30 minutes before he started his show. It was a great Dj playing as warmup and Royal Arena was on FIRE and I never seen so many drunk people on a Sunday before a concert. Justin did a great performance, the lights, his dance moves, the stage, our seats everything was really good but I did miss something. I cant put a finger on what I was I was missing but Frederik said the same. 2 thinks a think disturbed me little bit was the sound was to loud (I know is loud on a concert but I’ve seen other performance and never did I feel that is was this loud). Second thing that I think disturbed me was that is was so much happening on the stage that I sometimes did know where to look and I missed out some things because I was looking at the lights when he was doing some crazy dance moves. Overall it was great and I’m very happy I got to see him and if he ever comes to Copenhagen again I’m looking forward so see him again.

Excited much?

Not the best picture since is quite difficult to get a good pic with all the lights but I hope you get the point.

Love,

Fredrik & Andréa 

Silver is better than nothing

 

We are so proud of you #VATRENI

 

So, the World Cup 2018 is now over and Croatia lost against France in the final. Im so sad but happy at the same time that our small country Croatia got this far and won the second place. I think they showed many people that everything is possible when you believe in yourself and have the right attitude. Well done boys!! You truly stole our heart and I can say I will never ever forget this World Cup. Congratulations to France who did a great job as well.

I have to say I really think its good for me that the World Cup has ended because I was starting to get little bit obsessed. I been watching all the games (I did miss one actually), and its been tuff to keep up with everything else in life.

What have been going on the last week? -We been celebrating Frederiks since he had his birthday 11 July (the day Croatia was playing against England, don’t worry I did not miss that) We been working a lot on two new projects we have going on which I’m very excited about. I cant tell you anything quite yet, but I sure will very soon. Other then that I hurt my knee very bad so I cant walk right now, hopefully it will get better soon because we have a trip this coming up later this week.

I will soon check in again with a big post of our latest trip to Italy.

 

Love,

Andréa & Frederik

 

I need my days to be longer

…or do I just need to be more productive?

Good morning buy the way – Long time no see.

Its been I while since we been blogging and I can honestly say I have been missing it (ok, cant say I was a big blogger before). But I miss to write and share some things with you.

So much has happened over the last few months. And I just had really hard time to find some timeoff to sit down and write it all down. Its not easy when you have a full-time job, you need to workout, clean, do the laundry and everything else you need to do to make your daily life work, but thats no excuse. Anyway, we been to Marbella, Spain for one week. My lovely brother was turning 30 years and we surprised him with a trip to Marbella. Then we got home for one week before we flew to Venice for couple of days and then to Milan for 4 days before we got back home. Frederik was home for 3 days before he flew to Barcelona. Hard to keep up right?

I have so many pictures I want to share with you and I will try to do it tonight after the game. Im so exited; Croatia – Denmark, who do you think will win? I really hope Croatia wins but I know Frederik wont be happy if that happens. 🙂

Enjoy your Saturday

Love,

 Andréa & Frederik

Jan Klein

Jan Klein is a danish artist I’ve been knowing for couple of years now. I adore everything he is doing and for years, his art has hung on our walls. When I saw this beautiful chair he had created I fell in love. How can something be so beautiful (?) Its the perfect art piece we needed in our home, and now we have it. I can honestly say I can look at it and I feel happy, I know it sound kind of crazy but I guess thats what art should bring you, HAPPINESS.
