I truly hope your month has been a safe one and even due to social distancing and the worldwide lockdown, that’s it’s been a good month.

We have had so many DIY projects going on this month and a lot of gardening! I can’t imagine not having a garden anymore, it’s highly addictive! 🥴 I love to work on the garden and I bought a few peonies and some other beautiful flowers to get some colorful flowers in the garden.

Unfortunately we have had some very rough days at the end of this month, my fiancé lost a very loved member of his family, and we miss her dearly. We are still in a state of shock.

Christmas wishes? Uh… Damn

This year has been intense to say the least.. It’s also made me focus on everything else than the season we are in, which is winter and soon to be Christmas holidays 🤯 ..

I honestly haven’t been decorating, I haven’t been buying many presents and I definitely haven’t been interested in much lately -other than my physiotherapy that is.. But I really need to change that! I need some good old holiday cheer, and what better way, than to start writing a damn wish list and to decorate a little? ❄️

Some of my wishes this year.

  • Daniel Wellington watch – Petite Melrose
  • Glam Glow – Thirstymud
  • NYX jumbo eye pencil – Iced mocha + frenchfries + Yogurt
  • Maxi scarf – soft and pref in grey / pink tones
  • CLEAN perfume – Skin (An old time favorite!)

So do you guys have some amazing Christmas wish lists? Maybe some great inspiration I could borrow? The wishes I have aren’t too expensive and I honestly can’t say I wished for much this year.

The watch is quite beautiful, one of those watches that will look amazing whilst wearing a dress and some nice boots!

I am loving the jumbo eye pencils from NYX and I use them a lot, it’s a way of creating an easy and pretty eye makeup, without too much hassle!

Glam Glow Thirstymud is an amazing face mask / cream, that will hydrate dry and damaged winter skin! All you do after use, is just to wipe it off with some tissues, and let the remaining products stay on your skin. It really works wonders on my skin!

I found this cheap-ish scarf and I found it quite beautiful, it is a neutral grey/pink/white mix of tones, and it’s ultra soft. I found it in a grocery store called “Bilka”, which I never really seem to find anything remotely pretty in, but this scarf is actually pretty cute! I’m in a need of a good scarf lately, cause I honestly don’t have many good ones left to choose from anymore.. Most are thrown out due to wear and tear, and now I’m on the hunt for a new one!

The CLEAN perfumes series are always a win! I love the neutral scented perfumes, they aren’t heavy, they don’t give you a migraine and they cling to your skin, as it was your own personal scent, and I love that about them, they are just super subtle and especially the one called “Skin”. Working with a lot of people as I do, you want to wear something subtle, some people do tend to develop migraines and some can even be allergic to strong perfumes, these ones from CLEAN have never let me down, I have never encountered anyone of the patients that I work with, to have had a bad reaction to that specific perfume.

My biggest wish this year, is that year 2020 will be a good one, a healthy and happy one.

I hope to move into our dream home, I hope to start an extra addition to our family and I hope to finish my education with excellent grades!

Life is all up’s and down’s, it’s a bumpy ride, but it’s ours to live, to grow and to master, only you alone set the limits and only you can push your limits to become a greater you!

That is what year 2019 has taught me.

Thank you to all who has read along on my ramblings, right now it’s 06:44 – early morning, I am currently a bit poorly, with a middle ear infection and a cold, so I woke up to a banging headache and had to take some mild painkillers to be able to go back to sleep, those are finally working now, so I will crawl back into bed, with my sleeping fiancé, whom is also poorly with a bad cold and a sore throat and a bad cough -poor guy!

– He actually woke up, saw me writing my blog and asked very interested “Oh babe what are you writing?” And I told him, he found it cute, cause it’s been a while since I wrote much, this year has been tough on me. He approved of my little Christmas list.

How awesome is it, to have someone sleeping next to you, who wakes up, and reads some of the things you write, and then says “Oh that’s really cute” and drifts off again? He is such a good man, I’m lucky. Even though life has been tough this year, it has also been good to me, with his support, I can do anything!

Today in pictures

My mood brightens and my worries seems to fade, by simply just walking through the forest.

I adore taking pictures of the nature around me, and most of my life I’ve lived in this cute little town, where the forest is very close by, and I can take a long walk, clear my head and just unwind.

Today was one of those days, where I really needed to take a step back, and think of something else, just for a little while. With the sale of our apartment, the purchase of the house we are in love with, the approval from the bank and the lawyer who needs to look into everything – I am finding myself a teeny tiny bit stressed. My inbox is getting spammed with important emails, and I find myself checking up on it constantly.

– I ain’t complaining though! 😱 I am blessed that I at the “young” age of 31, are able to purchase such a house with my partner / better half. I am also insanely lucky to find a house that we both really like and in an area that’s very appealing. But my mind is going a 100 miles an hour, and I am so excited and nervous at the same time..

This long walk was just what I needed ❤️

Madness and mayhem

It’s been absolutely crazy this past week.. Or actually these past three weeks! 🤣 – And it will only get crazier…

We have had my three bonus kids / my better half’s three awesome kids, staying here for the past three weeks, and I’ve loved every minute of it! They are here every year for three weeks (we live in Denmark and the kids lives in the UK where my better half is from). We have missed them terribly this year, and it’s been so good to catch up with them and spoil them all rotten.

This year we have been staying for a week at my brothers house, at Lolland – which has been absolutely amazing! So much space and so many rooms, one for each of the kids even! That’s been pretty awesome, and it’s got us thinking.. We need a bigger place, we really do.

My bigsister always sends me a bunch of links to fantastic houses that’s for sale, most of them so expensive, that it would put you in debt for a lifetime! But at the end of week two, whilst having the kids over, my sister managed to send me yet another link, this time it was a house that’s affordable, with the rooms we need and a fairly big and private garden..

We were suspicious really.. Looking at the pictures, wondering which flaws would be the final deal-breaker, but as things progressed, the house just got even more interesting.

We called the estate agent up, and asked for a viewing, and we had a look at it. We weren’t disappointed.. It was as nice as on the pictures and very cozy, it had a feel to it! Best of all, it was huge…

Before we knew it, we made an offer, the offer was bargained with a little, but then accepted and our bank approved of the loan, oh my god I’m just speechless!

My mind is an absolute mess, with so many different emotions, and it comes in waves.. Happy, anxious, giddy, excited, drained, melancholic – the list goes on and on, but most of all, I’m relieved.. Finally a new chapter of our lives are starting, and we are on our way to become house owners!

We are about to sell the apartment now and hopefully it will be a quick sale, for the right price. I bought the place 8 years ago, and we love our little home, but it’s also time for something bigger and we are ready for our forever home now, and I believe that we might have found it ❤️

The following weeks, we will be having a professional photographer snapping pictures of our home, and it will shortly after be up for sale, it’s so surreal! 😱😄

Glam Glow

This is by far the best working brand I’ve tried to date, a perfect home spa experience, and worth every penny!

I’m one of those women who’s tried a LOT of face masks, and this is by far the best brand I’ve tried! Every product I’ve tried, have just been working and it’s also a pleasant experience – cause lets be honest, some face masks just plain hurts or dries into this impossible mess that you can’t wash off!

The Glam Glow supermud mask has a slight cooling effect, and is easy to rinse off when it’s dried. It leaves your skin feeling soft and clean. I can’t find a bad thing to say about this face mask, and normally I’m so disappointed with every new product I try – this has a Hollywood feel, and the price is fair too!

The Glam Glow Lip exfoliating treatment is a lip scrub, and I use it a lot, (mainly before applying long lasting lipsticks) and the container is huuuge, so you get a lot of scrub for your money! I’m again a bit speechless, because it actually works! It smells of mint (even tastes of mint lol!), and leaves your lips feeling baby soft, again not one bad word!

This product is for women on the go, it takes no time at all to apply and (for the mask) to dry, I’m impressed and will be repurchasing these products! I’m going to have to try the lip plumper that Glam Glow has made – I have high expectations now that I know these two products work so well!

New Years in pictures

The year 2017 was amazing, it was the year that I finally started my nurses assistant education, the year that I found out how it really felt like to be a nurses assistant and how busy it can be, but also rewarding!

It was the year that my amazing fiancé found work as a tiler and I am so insanely proud of him, he is such a strong man and such a wonderful dad and a fantastic fiancé

This year has been hard work, fun, exciting and down right busy! I found a job as an uneducated carer, so I’m basically working two jobs – one as an intern and one as uneducated, it’s hard, but it’s rewarding, I love helping and caring for people and I can’t wait to go to work again! I wouldn’t have it any other way.. My work is a part of who I am, and I am proud of that!

2017 has been a year of growth for me, a year where I’ve built up my confidence and where I have had so much love and support from my fiancé in almost everything I’ve done! I can’t thank him enough..

It’s also been the year where I’ve finally gotten my drivers license – something I’ve been putting off for forever, because I lived close to everything and never needed to drive. – But now I finally have it, and I’m driving! What’s even better is, I got my moms car to drive in all the time, since she hardly used it, I’m so thankful for that!

My little sister finished her masters degree in IT – I’m such a proud big sis, she is such a brainy girl and I know she will end up becoming someone great, she is just that type of girl. Determined and insanely smart

It’s also been a year of redecorating, where we redid the entire bedroom – newly painted and newly furnitured, now we just want a new bed, and a few bits and bobs, I really love that bedroom now!

2017 has also been all about spending time with my bonus babies, and I miss them dearly right now! They were here the summer of ’17, for three weeks, and I cried horribly when they had to go home! I felt miserable for weeks..

I truly hope that everyone had a wonderful and safe celebration of the new year and that 2018 will be an amazing year, mine can’t be anything but, cause I have them three wonderful bonus babies, my fiancé and my family by my side! I couldn’t wish for anything more from 2017, it’s been the best year I could have imagined!

See you online guys! x
