The Body Shop Ethiopian Honey Nourishing Mask

Vädret är ju så fruktansvärt kallt och otrevligt här i Stockholm idag, det är inte lätt att ställa om vädermässigt när man spenderat senaste 16 åren på Malta :) men jag försöker genom att ta vara på alla bra saker som jag kunde sakna på Malta. Det som är allra skönast är ju att det är så varmt och mysigt inomhus. Ingen fukt, inga kalla golv osv. Idag testade jag därför en ansiktsmask som heter The Body Shop Ethiopian Honey Nourishing Mask. Måste säga att den har en lite funky doft som de kanske kunde gjort något åt, men det kan ju vara som med Elizabeth Ardens 8 hour cream, att vissa älskar doften och andra avskyr den. Någon som testat? Förutom doften tycker jag att den känns allmänt uppiggande, vilket är ungefär vad jag behövde en dag som denna.

Mint for spring

Oh my God how windy Malta is today…almost flew away at one point during my power walk. Anyway, I spent the morning in Mosta fixing my nails 😉 I’m very happy with the colour and length, and they generally needed some proper TLC. The colour is mint + 2 of the nails are gold. Very spring, pastel happy colours!

Tonight I have the first lesson of my 16 week design course. Wish me luck.

Hope you all have a happy weekend x

Detox juicin’

So yesterday we had a Netflix and wine kind of evening, and a little too late my driving instructor texted me asking if I could do an extra lesson today, as I really need the final ‘touches’ before doing the test…I said yes and now I kind of wish I didn’t. Not because of the wine but it’s Friday and I had some other plans as well. It’s funny how the mind works tho…I really really want to get this whole thing over and done with, it’s been like a year of practising on and off (my instructor has days where he just don’t ‘go to work‘, which means I sometimes have weeks of not driving) but as much as I want it, every lesson is accompanied with a dose of anxiety.

On another note, today I’m applying for a course in interior & design. Will keep you posted, I’m sure it’ll be fun, I always wanted to do something ‘real’ with my creativity, but never really found the right thing. Malta is sometimes a little limited, so fingers crossed about this one!

My morning detox juice, doesn’t it look so tempting! Love it – carrot, apples and lots of ginger!

June?

This is so weird, I don't think I ever wore a jacket of any kind in June? In Malta that is. The air was hotter in early spring actually. Like, we did the photoshoot for Sprachcaffe in April and it was hot. Hmm..

I don't mind a little cool air anyway coz  that horrible 40+ heat is not any better, we've already booked tickets for Sweden in August ;)

Weekend break @ Comino

We had such a great time, it was like being plugged into an energy charger :) Aiden had the time of his life with all the other kids and they played tennis, jumped in the pool and enjoyed the food etc. Same for us, and we went hiking around the whole island (which doesn't really take that long haha) and the weather was great, hot enough. It felt like we were far away from home but door to door from our house to the hotel incl car and boat trip, it took no more than 1½ hr. 

Blue Lagoon is amazingly beautiful, especially early morning before boats and people start to show up, it's so calm and serene. Sometimes that's all you need; sea, blue sky, sun and a bit of quiet. No laptops, internet access, barely mobile recepetion. Very peaceful and well needed.

I guess the pics speak for themselves ;)

Today

Had a nice day today, really hot for sure. Jonas had the day off so we went up north for lunch near Golden Sands. We've been having a 'low' for a few days for reasons I don't feel like bringing up, but if I have to see anything good in all this, it would be realising that how other people behave and how they decide to live their lives shouldn't effect us in any way, we're strong as we are. Alone together so to speak. I know it's pointless writing a post with a sort of half hearted message, but it's for selfish reasons, just feel like getting things off my chest.

Tomorrow morning we're off to Comino :) will be fun, and I got a perfect set from Vichy to help me pack light ;)

Lunch at Golden Sands (it looks cloudy and chilly on the pic but it was the total opposite) and beer/coffees at Presidents Garden with Teta and Nate

Lindt Dark Chocolate a Touch of Sea Salt

lindt-chocolate

This one is soo good. I love the mix of dark chocolate and sea salt, unfortunately we cannot find it here in Malta, so we try to stock up when we go abroad hehe. Actually what was even better was Jonas mum's home-made dark chocolate fudge with sea salt, she sent us a box for Christmas and it was meant to be for everyone but we ate them all in like 3 days ;o)

Dark chocolate has a lot of health benefits so don't feel bad:)

 

Election Day 2 – Day off

Morning. Well Labour won big yesterday and I don't know if this is good or bad, but it does go hand in hand with the new worldly philosophy of Change! So, we have to embrace it and pray for the best ;o)

Schools as well as everything else is closed today but I'm meeting up with Bea & Nevada for a coffee somewhere open. The sliding double windows at my parents penthouse are usually good enough to keep out noise but last night I thought there was a party in the bedroom, crazy Labour people stayed out late, let's put it that way...

Enjoy your week, fingers crossed that this beautiful weather only goes away for a little while and then comes back Big time!
