The no update- update

The no update- update

What does this mean? If there is an update about no update then there is an update??????
Simply put: I won’t upload a “real” post this week because I just started with the youtube videoes (you can find the youtube channel at this blog) and therefore I am busy busy busy with making great content for you lovely people! ❤

The “first” video is up on the channel. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XrYIfMuBN9o) It is just an introduction for what is coming, but it has nontheless started. This doesn’t mean I will stop on the blog here- I will keep posting so don’t worry 🙂

Yup, that was it for this time! Is there anything you want me to make videoes about, just write to me and I’d love to do it (unless it’s dangerous or will hurt someone of course)


Until next time: I hope you all have a happy life, one day at a time :* ❤



Love yourself!

Love yourself!

Loving yourself is one of my hardest challenges. I have tried so many things for 6 years now, and I am FINALLY at a point in my life where I can say that I love myself (At least most of the time. This makes me really happy to say)

Therefore this post will be about exactly the same. Loving yourself. (Because you’re worth it!)

My favorite reasons on why you should love yourself

  • Self love attracts love
  • It motivates youself-love-greatest-motivationv.jpg
  • Helps you make healthier decisionse4c4be0dffed47d673d99aa933eae774
  • Can make you look and feel younger
  • You instantly seem more attractive
  • Reduces stress



Ways to achieve this:

  • Stop comparing yourself to othersstop-comparing-comic2
  • Know your strengths and weaknessestrue-success-lies-in-knowing-your-weaknesses-and-playing-to-your-strengths-quote-1.jpg
  • Take care of your bodydownload
  • Do something you love everydaydownload
  • Speak kindly to yourself and DO NOT call yourself names. No it doesn’t help at all to call yourself ugly or stupid.f198036a314263fd6e6f284651a1821c
  • Know that you are not “perfect” and no one isyou-were-born-to-be-real-not-to-be-perfect-quote-1.jpg
  • Compliment yourself on a daily basisCompliment-Yourself-Daily
  • Learn to say no (or yes)download (1)
  • Laugh everyday

What ways do you usually use to remind yourself that you love you?

I hope you set it as your priority to love yourself, because when we love ourself life always seem brighter! 🙂

Until next time, I hope you all have a happy life, one day at a time!


Ps: remember: I love you guys

My birthday

My birthday

So, my birthday was the 19’th of march and I was so blessed that I was able to share it with my mother and my aunt (who went all the way from Denmark, and Norway to visit me)

Normally (In Denmark) we wake the birthday child up with song and gifts, but this time we did it a little different. When I woke up, I climbed down from my bed, went into theirs and laid down in between them where they started singing for me. Afterwards I got presents (yay) And I got these from my aunt and mother: (And also a lot of gift cards)

Then we went up and prepared for the big feast. My aunt made Lasagna (because hers is the beeeeest!) I made the cake, and my mother entertained Eva and helped us when we needed it.

My French family made the table and we sat down (for a loooong time, man there was a lot of food and cake) I even got some presents from the family here. ( the first one was the card, and the origami mouse and picture was from Eva- and YES the last one is filled chocolate in animal shapes!!!!!)

I then took my mother and my aunt with me on a walk to one of my favorite stores (4 kilometres away) where we saw these two cuties!


All In all I had a great birthday and felt really loved (and tired) when the day was over!


Until next time, I wish you a happy life, one day at a time! 🙂 ❤


Friday fantasies

Friday fantasies

Hello bello everyone (said with the cutest minion accent)

I hope you’ve all had a great time since last update! I would’ve posted this yesterday (because thursdays thoughts sounds more like this post-but hey friday fantasies sounds exotic)

This week has been a rollercoaster, a fun and busy roller coaster. Monday (the 6’th) was Eva’s birthday and since she wanted a cream puff cake, and cream puffs (is this the right word? Tell me if you know the exact english word (or the word for them in your native language) in danish it is “flødebolle”) then I sat my self up to make both. And I think they turned out great! They look homemade, but well-they are!


My present for her was a homemad elephant and it also looked homemade but SO cute. (And it got friends with my own, smaller elephant (Oscar is his name) very fast))

No matter we ended up with a VERY happy 11 year old girl, and are looking forward to this weekend where there will be birthday sleepover for her friends. 17204522_10209667641075541_578220029_n

Next week will be my birthday (oh god I’m turning 20) and my Mother and Aunt will come visit me. I’m really looking forward to both the visit, the food and well, the fact that I got older but still look great :’)

one year older

After that I will have to get my presents ready for both of my parents, they have their birthdays not long after mine. And at that time, I NEED to show you what I am thinking about (but everything has it’s time)

If you would like the recipe for the “flødeboller” the cake or the elephants- just ask and I would love to show and tell you!

I hope you all have a happy life, one day at a time. 🙂


Hello from The mountainside

Hello from The mountainside

Just a short Update for everyone. I am right now on vacation with my french family (The family I’m au pairing for)

We are skiing and sledding in The Sun, surrounded by The snow (and occasionally mountain goats).

 I personally Can not skii so I’m just a happy watcher. Do Any of you guys enjoy skiing??

Greetings from The french mountains! And I hope you all have a happy life, one Day at a time!

Stuff you should probably throw away, but don’t

Stuff you should probably throw away, but don’t

Okay I admit it! I’m a huuuuge hoarder. I really dislike throwing things out and always think: but what if I suddenly have to use this? (And I already know, I am NOT going to use that worn out and dirty sock)

So for you (and also myself) here is a list of stuff you should probably throw away, but don’t


  • Your pretty disgusting and worn out shoes38aefa122c359e89307bc076609c2a3d
    I love shoes and I really bond with some of them- therefore I find it extra hard to throw out my favorite shoes even though they are dirty and filled with holes. But what’s got to go, got to go.
  • The clothes you NEVER wear.
    You keep them in the closet because they look cute and hey-they were on sale when you bought them. You haven’t worn it once and deep down you know you are not going to. Ever. If it hurts too much to get rid of consider upcycling them into something else you actually might use, or give them to charity (or just a friend)
  • Ruined underwear.
    Holes and weird stains? Yes? No. Throw it out please. For everyone’s sake.
  • Your toothbrush.
    Okay this one is pretty basic. Do you switch your toothbrush out with a new one every 3 month? No well here’s a fact for you then: Over time, toothbrushes gather as much bacteria as a toilet brush. Yup. You’re welcome.
  • Old birthday cards.
    Or cards alike (you can keep those with sentimental value of course- but just in case you have 25 birthdays from classmates from when you were 10 (which actually don’t say anything else than happy birthday) please. Throw them out. They only take up space (trust me I know-I had two boxes of old cards that I couldn’t get myself to throw out. Oh all the space I got when they went out)
  • Dead flowers.064f52065228eadade50519ae3814fd8
    Okay hands up. I really don’t have green fingers, I wish I had, but I don’t. So once in a while I end up with a dead flower. What do I do- let it stay, It kind of looks like a living plant. Okay they have to get out or they will end up infested with unwelcome bugs and insects. Then it’s suddenly not so fun anymore. Just throw them out please.
  • Ruined, dried up or expired beauty products.
    They end up being a party for bacteria and who wants to put bacteria infested stuff on their skin. No one is my guess.
  • Broken electronic that cannot be saved.
    This speaks for itself. Why keep things that you have no use for and no connection to?
  • Expired food.
    Another one that speaks for itself. No one wants to find a lumpy milk or a rotten banana in their house. Hopefully.
  • Broken umbrellas.broken-umbrella
    They are not going to work again, just throw them out.
  • Games with missing pieces
    The chances are, you are never going to find those pieces again, just let them go and either get a new game (if you love it) or think about if you actually use it, if you don’t just throw it out.


Do you still have some of these things in your house?

Or do you have anything that you think deserves a spot on the list?

Just comment underneath and I’ll love to read it!


Until next time: I wish you a happy life, one day at a time! 🙂
