Parents are always giving advice like parents do, but sometimes those advice are actually really good. A while ago I started noting down things mum and dad would throw at me during our conversations:
Don’t forget the importance of sufficient and regular sleep. Our body is endlessly working to repair itself and sleep is self-healing, helping your body regenerate.
Only when you possess self-awareness can you recognise your boundaries. And the stronger you mark your these boundaries, the closer others may get to you.
In order to get the benefit of a freshly squeezed juice you must drink it right after it is made, because after 15 minutes it starts to oxidise and the vitamins will be lost.
Anger is a powerful, positive and strengthening energy. We need anger to be able to mark our boundaries, showing what we find acceptable and what not. To be able to control your anger and use it constructively gives you an enormous power.
Practice self-respect and self-love. This involves listening to your inner voice and valuing your good and strong sides but also being aware of those less good sides.
One of the most frustrating things you can do is try to change others. The only one you can change is yourself and through that you might be able to change your surrounding.
Cats have it all – admiration, an endless sleep, and company only when they want it.
This gorgeous boy gets a lot of mentions here on my blog and I think it’s about time that I introduced you properly. Adrian is one of my closest friends here in London and we both require our daily dose of each others company. Adrian makes me laugh non-stop hence why I enjoy my time with him so much. He can be incredibly deep, always reflecting on life and you couldn’t find a more loyal friend – no one dares mess with me with this Lion by my side. He is also Swedish and an interior designer in the making with a past in modeling. You can follow his London adventures on Instagram by searching for Addefied.
All packed and ready to go… speak to you from London. x
So I find myself longing for my life in London, longing for the city itself and my favourite places awaiting me such as Holland Park. I’ve left too many precious things behind, specifically someone very special and can’t wait to be back tomorrow night. It has been great being home in sunny Stockholm with the family and presenting the My City Stockholm episode, but I will be flying back on clouds tomorrow evening. I’ve heard it’s been raining non-stop in London and I’ve just checked the weather and it seems like the rain will continue for another week. Why are we so scared of a little rain? I’ve decided from now on to dress right for the weather and enjoy my life as if its sunny :)
When the sun shines over London there’s no where else I’d rather be, especially thanks to my amazing friends that go slightly mad in the sun and make my life so much fun. This was a very special day, not only because I was spending it with these lovelies but because a couple of hours earlier I had met someone very special for the very first time. You never know what the day ahead will bring and how a meeting can change so much.
If you haven’t already heard of Sarah Chapman then you are in for a treat. This renouned facialist has become one of the most talked about names in the beauty industry. I was introduced to her award winning skin care range about 6 months ago when I first tried her amazing Dynamic Defence daily moisturiser and Overnight facial. A few weeks ago the lovely Laura from Talented Talkers got in touch with me, asking me whether I would be interested in reviewing Sarah Chapman’s Instant Miracle Mask. I was very excited about the offer since I have heard so many good things about this mask. I’ve used 3 sachet to make sure I could properly review this product for you.
Usability and tips: The mask comes in 4 sachets and a shaker which you use for mixing the powder with water before applying it to your face. I opted for cool Evian water rather than tap water only because it gave the whole experience a more luxurious feel. You have to be quick to apply as the mask sets within minutes. The first thing you’ll notice is how much there is in each sachet and the mistake I made the first time around was applying a thin layer, trust me the thicker the layer the better as this mask sets into rubber. When you apply a generous amount the peel off becomes so much easier and less messy. Try to get an even coverage all over your face and neck and if any mask remains then use that for the decolletage or the back of your hands. The mask contains brown sea algae, vitamin C and hyaluronic acid and is designed to lift, smooth and help rejuvenate your skin, leaving it looking and feeling healthier.
Results: I tried this mask 3 times before writing this review, simply because I wanted it to be as honest as possible like every other review you’ll see on here. The application is a bit tricky but it’s most definitely worth it. Both myself and my friend Luna saw instant results with our skin feeling and looking softer and more radiant. I even noticed a difference in uneven colouring left by old pimples. The mask is pretty pricey for 4 applications but this is the ultimate red carpet mask and perfect for those special occasions. This mask has been added to my golden products list and I can truly recommend it.
QVC has an introductory offer on now for Sarah Chapman which you can find HERE.
As you may know already my friend Andy has been ill with Cancer and while he is on his way to recovery, the road has been a bumpy one. A couple of days ago I found out that a very dear friend of mine has breast Cancer. We are trying to deal with it together but it’s difficult time. She will be ok, I have no doubt about that but I wish I could spare her the period ahead. When did the C word become a reality capable of effecting our loved ones? I like to remind you all again that 1 in 3 will at some point be affected by Cancer, and the only way we can beat this diseases is trough supporting the research that can help prevent, diagnose and treat it.

At least 37 people have been killed and as many as 850 injured after a powerful earthquake struck southwest Iran on Tuesday. The International Red Cross and Red Crescent Society have already deployed 75 rescue and assessment teams in the affected area. The immediate rescue operations have been completed and the focus is now on providing relief to the thousands of people who live in the affected area. Many of us take these humanitarian organizations for granted, forgetting that they are voluntary relief movements and not government agencies. They rely on our donations to be able to carry out the fantastic work that they do. I just made a donation and encourage you to do the same; it’s easy and only take a couple of minutes of your time. You may donate either to the National Society in your country, or to the IFRC directly. Click HERE to get involved.
