Breakfast Smoothie

I rarely indulge in a breakfast smoothie during the week and often grab a porridge on my way from the tube to work, so I take any occasion to indulge a little extra like now, during my Easter holiday in Denmark!

Not only are the breakfast smoothies easy on the eye, they’re also a great source of vitamins and nutrition – what’s not to like?DSC_1947

For the longest time I swore to Chanel’s makeup remover, but I do like to change things up once in a while so when I came across Ahava makeup remover I had to give it a try – and I loved it. Even more so than the one from Chanel – plus it was more affordable! However, after a few bottles of the Ahava makeup remover, it was time for a new product and I ended up choosing this one from Clinique that cleans lashes, lids and also lips. Interesting, I thought! The main criteria for a makeup remover for me is that I don’t wake up with any leftover mascara under my eyes the next day. Both Chanel and Ahava were perfect at that, however with this one I do find a tiny bit of of mascara leftover. This one also has an oily consistency – I personally prefer watery – but it’s very gentle to the eye area and with a little bit of product it easily removes mascara and lipstick. I really like the fact that the product lets you use it for both eyes and lips and is very gentle to your skin! Have you tried this product? Which eye makeup remover do you use?

Boyfriend jeans are one of those fashion items that never go out of style. At the same time, they are an item that can be hard to style. The great thing about boyfriend jeans is that, while they have a relaxing fit, they can easily be taken from day to night and add a bit of edge to your outfit and make your elegant and classic look more fun and trendy. Wear them with heels, flats or booties – boyfriend jeans are a versatile modern classic perfect for spring time. Here are three ways to style boyfriend jeans!

Look 1 – Relaxed & Edgy

A relaxed and informal look perfect for the lazy days where you still want to look and feel good. A leather jacket is a must in every woman’s wardrobe, if you ask me, and in order to keep the look, which consists of two other masculine elements {Converse and boyfriend jeans} from becoming too butch, I would add a feminine, colourful statement necklace. Think: Alexa Chung

Look 2 – Elegant & Effortless

A tailored suit jacket worn with a loose blouse and boyfriend jeans along with dainty heels is a great look for evening that will have you looking and feeling chic, without over-doing it. Perfect for a first date or informal dinner with friends. The mixture of prints {stripes and animal} gives the look a fun feel, while the blazer and the heels take it from day to evening in an instant! Think: Jennifer Aniston

Look 3 – Sporty & Timeless

A classic jeans and a t-shirt that is trendy and timeless all at the same time. Pairing your boyfriend jeans with a pair of tan booties and an army jacket gives you a sporty and classic look that’s effortless and put together. Perfect for a Sunday stroll grabbing brunch from your favorite café! Think: Diane Kruger

When I was a kid I didn’t like cake – a sentiment that’s very far away from me today. If I could, I would eat cake for breakfast, lunch and dinner, but in a constant quest for a healthy lifestyle, I try to keep my sweet tooth on the leash. I enjoy baking and cooking, which makes it hard not to over-indulge, which is why I try to experiment with desserts that are low carb and without added sugar. The latest recipe I’ve experimented with is for these delicious low carb rum balls. The consistency turned out to be near perfection and while it’s based on dried fruit, the taste of the rum is dominant, without overpowering the other flavours.

When it comes to desserts, people are often scared when you talk about sugar-free, natural or raw alternatives. I therefore don’t like to call my ”alternatives” alternatives – for me, they’re the real deal, in a better version. While they taste as good as traditional rum balls, they are light and will not drag your energy level down and you can enjoy them without feeling guilty. What’s not to like?
