Hope you all had a wonderful easter!
I have been working most of the easter, been out with friends and ended the last days up the mountain with my family. The weather was perfect to go out skiing!

I would love to know what you all did this easter ! 🙂

Happy April everyone! It´s time for a new favorites post! I found it hard to find products for this month actually. I think it´s because I still love and use the products from last month, so I haven´t got my head around to buy new stuff for this month. But I have a few favorites that I want to share anyway, and I have to say that I really do love what I picked out this time! Also, I like to mention that all the products I feature on my blog is always cruelty free and vegan!
So without further ado, here is my March beauty favorites:


Kora Organics Age Defying AHA Facial Exfoliation
I had to start with my absolute favorite product for this month!
It´s from my holy grail brand, Kora Organics. I promise you, this exfoliation is just amazing for a fresh looking skin.

So you just put this amazing thing on fresh cleansed and dried face and let it sit for 5 minutes. I usually brush my teeth while I wait. After 5 minutes you wet your fingers and massage the exfoliation into your face. Then you wash it all off with a damp bamboo cloth and finish it off either with a facial or your favorite moisturizer.
This exfoliation makes you feel like you are on a spa. And it get rid off all the nasty dirt from your pores.
I absolutely love this one for a glowy and smooth skin. Use it once or twice a week for the best results!

BTW, you can now get 10% off your first purchase on Kora Organics website trough this link HERE.


 SOAP WALLA Deodorant Cream
I have never tried this brand before, nor do I have tried cream deodorant before. But I have fallen in love with it, and I will never buy a regular one again!
The ones you buy at the drugstore has so much harsh and harmful chemicals in the ingredients list, and their smell is too intense for my liking. But this one has a nice fresh citrus smell, and the ingredients is super high quality wich is the reason it got my attention right away. I know you will love it as well!

Georganics Oil Pulling Mouthwash
I have tried oil pulling once, and I never wanted to do it ever again. Back then I used coconut oil, and I just could not stand the taste or the texture. But when I came across this one with spearmint flavor I thought I would try it again.
Oil pulling has many health benefits such as whitening the teeth, can improve gut health, boost immune system, kill bad breath and so on.
Anyhow, I really liked this mouthwash better than I though I would. It´s not as tick as the coconut oil are and I can do this for way longer. My teeth feel way better after I started using it!

Pro tip: Do this first thing in the morning, before you brush your teeth or drink anything. Don´t swallow it. Swish it around in your mouth for about 10-20 minutes. Spit it out in the trash, not in the sink.


Kora Organics Daily hand cream
Another favorites from Kora Organics!
This hand cream is an essential for me. I must have it with me everywhere. Since I am a receptionist I feel like people naturally will look at my hands, therefore is this hand cream an amazing drink for my hands.
The weather here in Norway this month has not been the warmest for sure, so my hands used to get really dry very easily, but this cream has helped tremendously.
So if you are looking for a good hand cream that is not sticky, hydrating, wants to leave them soft, smooth and renewed. This is the one you need!



Organic Caster Oil

This month I have been obsessed with this oil. I just got my second bottle of it, that´s how much I have been using it.
I use it everyday on my body. Usually right after I have dry brushed my skin and taken a shower.
By doing this over time it will keep your skin looking young and glowing. It also helps with cellulite!

This oil is very tick and sticky, I know some of you don´t like that, but I personally think that makes it hydrate my skin even more in a deeper level.
I also have been using it in my hair as a hair mask over night and on my eyebrows to strengthen the scalp and the hairs.
You can also make a homemade body scrub with sea salt, coconut oil and castor oil, wich I promise will make your skin super soft like a baby´s skin!

 

So that is all of my beauty favorites for this month! Let me know what you think in the comments! 🙂

FEBRUARY BEAUTY FAVORITES 2017

 

Nice cream, my absolutely favorite breakfast.

There is honestly nothing better way to start the day than with a delicious creamy nice cream. Oh, it´s so heavenly!
The ingredients are very simple, since I´m all about simplicity with my busy schedule. But that does not mean it´s not tasty. This is also guilt free, vegan and very delicious. And with the raw granola it gives it a nice crunch!

INGREDIENTS

Chocolate date sauce

  • 5 dates
  •  1/2 cup coconut water
  •  2 tbsp raw cacao powder

Nice Cream

  • 3-4 Frozen bananas
  •  1 cup Frozen Strawberries
  •  2-3 tbsp of Coconut water

 

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Blend all the ingredients for the date sauce in a separate blender. And adjust the ingredients if you feel like to. If you like it more sweeter, use more dates. Or if you want it ticker, simply just adjust the coconut water.
  2. When your done with the sauce add the frozen banana, frozen strawberries in a food processor and blend. Use little coconut water to begin with, adjust the amount to how you want the nice cream to be.
  3. When your done making everything, it´s just putting it all together either in a bowl or in a glass as I did. I did sprinkled with some raw granola that I will post the recipe to later if you are interested. Also a good tip is to put some chocolate date sauce in the glass and put in the freezer to set while you continue with the nice cream.

 

I hope you like this recipe, I really enjoyed making it. Let me know if you try it!




Happy Monday everyone!
I have been up at the mountain since Saturday, and came back from the cabin a few hours ago.
We have just been relaxing and taking it easy this weekend. Since I´ve been working night shifts from last Sunday until Thursday, it´s been really nice to charge up some new energy before I´m going to work night shifts again tomorrow. But I am so dead right now, I don´t know how many times I´ve been fallen a sleep while writing this post, haha. I think it´s time for me to find the bed now! I will come back stronger again tomorrow. Hope you enjoy these few pictures that I took. I have more to come. xx


My favorite time of the day is when the sun sets.
We had a lovely walk by the beach today, and finished off with this gorgeous sunset!
