Shooting day

In May I was lucky to join a lovely photoshoot in Malmo together with David Pahmp and Sofa Boman (check out their work here and here)Β They were both so nice and we were so lucky the sun was shining all day so we could make some summery photos. Β David is really professional and makes sure the best photos will come out of the shoot. During this day my lovely friend helped me out with the styling. See some of the results below.

Sunny terrace days

Finally the sun is out, YAY! Last weekend I was in MalmΓΆ sitting on a terrace enjoying the first sunny moments in Sweden. It’s so funny but actually ridiculous how the sun affects our mood. I felt instantly way more happy and had more energy than before. I think I need to get used to this dark winters in Sweden, or maybe escape the winters and be here over the summer..

I think enjoying the sun with a rose wine and some good food is one of my favourite activities. It just makes me happy and feel alive.

PS: PIZZA IS LIFE <3

Copenhagen with my Mom

Follow my blog with Bloglovin

Last weekend I went to Copenhagen with my mom. She was visiting me in Sweden for the first time, so I was really excited to show her around all the nice places. We’ve been strolling around the beautiful city. Luckily no rain….. cause seriously can someone please order some sun for Scandinavia? Thank you!

We had amazing cheesecake at Bertels Salon. Check it out here. It’s in the middle of the centre and easily to find when walking from the central station toward Nyhavn. Close to all the shops. Oh and we saw this cute little doggie in front of a windows. My mom thought he was fake, but eventually he moved a bit and I could convince her it was real haha. Does anyone know what dog breed this is?

Get my bag here!

I fell in love with Samsoe & Samoe. I already knew this brand a little bit, but when I entered the big store in Copenhagen… damn. I wanted to buy everything. It’s so classy, feminine and minimalistic. I just love that style. I guess it’s a Danish brand? That’s why they have this big store in Copenhagen. I want to go back soon to buy some stuff. Right now my bank account didn’t allow me to do so πŸ™‚

Last but not least, for some reason I always end my city trip in Copenhagen at this place. Cock’s & Cows, weird name I know, but it stands for Cocktails…. Yes I know what you were thinking before. They have several locations around the city.Β 

Next weekend I am going to Stockholm, YAY. Just so you know… I am ordering some sun for that weekend…

Birthday Girl

Today I turn 25. I may only be a day older than yesterday, but now I can say I’ve lived a quarter of a century, and what a life it’s been so far. It seems so common to fear growing up and getting old, but I relish every moment of it. For every year that I’ve been able to walk this Earth, I’ve grown wiser, stronger, and, most of all, happier. Although it may not appear so in the photos I share, my life is far from perfect. Behind the fancy pictures is a real person, with a life full of ups and downs.
As a child I went through times of great pain, and to this day I have struggles that I don’t show the world. Through all of it, though, I am thankful. I am thankful for every experience, even the failures, the pain, the heartbreaks, and the tears, because these experiences are what helped me to understand the most important things in life. At the heart of it all, what matters most? To love, and to be loved. To connect with other souls, and experience the joys and sorrows of life together.
I am incredibly grateful to have wonderful people in my life. They have seen me through all the lows, and they push me to new highs. They give me energy and make me smile every day. Make sure you surround yourself with positive people who you know will stand by you through everything life may throw at you. These people are the ones who listen when you tell them your dreams, and they take it as a matter of course that you can make those dreams reality. My dreams are big, and I won’t waste a precious moment not working to achieve them.
I have a lot of plans for this year, and I feel ready. Ready to accomplish big things. Ready to love and be loved. Ready for the highs, and the lows. Ready to live and learn, through whatever life has to offer me. Thank you all for coming on this journey with me so far, and I am so excited to share the next chapter of my life with you all!

Love xx, Nina

In August I’ve moved to Sweden to obtain my Master’s degree in Entrepreneurship. I was a bit nervous for this adventures, but since I’ve arrived I am having the time of my life! Sweden is such a beautiful country and all the people are so nice. I’ve made so many new friends πŸ™‚ We discovered many nice places like: Tugg Burgers (best burger place in town), Lomma Beach, Ishiri (Lunch place) and more.

In the meantime I am trying to focus on blogging, but the program is quite intense. Luckily I finally planned my next trip, October 14th -> Stockholm!

Tiny Tea review

A few months ago Your Tea contacted me if would try out their tea. I’ve always been very curious about their Tiny Tea. You see many pictures on Instagram of people showing their results with a before and after pic. I was not sure if it really works, but since I was trying to lose some weight and get fitter I wanted to give it a try.

First I’ve checked the ingredients, since I am super obsessed with healthy living and I don’t want to put any garbage into my body. I’ve did some research about the ingredients, which are mostly Chinese herbs. I’ve had very good experiences before with acupuncture and a Chinese herbal cure.

Tiny Tea contains:Β Jue Ming Zi, He Ye, Shan Zha, Lai Fu Zi, Chen Pi, Mai Ya. (Google will do the work for you)

Basically you can’t expect miracles, since this is just a Tea and it contains just a little bit of the herbs.

But, I have to say that for it worked really wel.

Since Januari I’ve been trying to eat clean and work out more. My weight in January 2016 was 123 lb (56 kg). Since March I’ve been drinking Tiny Tea almost everyday. Today May 26th 2016 my weight it 110 lb (50 kg).

That means that I’ve lost 12 pounds (6 kg) in 5 months. For some people that might not be so much, but for me it’s really a big thing. I feel healthy, fit and energetic. That’s the most important, I think.

So just to be clear. Tiny Tea did help me lose some extra weight. Especially the last few pounds were the hardest. It did prevent bloating, this made me feel better instantly. But don’t expect miracles. All this was achieved by combining good nutrition, workouts and drinking the tea regularly. Find your own balance!

For those who are curious about my workout routine. I follow a dance class once a week and practice some workouts at home almost every day! Check out Rebecca Louise on YouTube, she really has great workouts that don’tΒ take too much time.

XOXO, Nina
