What are you looking forward to this week?
It’s week 4 of 2016 and there’s a bunch of things I’m looking forwards to: eat sushi for dinner tonight, read this book (the first for 2017), wear my favorite red lipstick every single day, make a proper running playlist, try a new yoga class and some inspiring YouTube training videos, paint my nails a fun color so that I don’t bite them and get myself some fancy new boots (maybe).
What was the last blog you started reading?
Will you be cooking something good this week?
I’m planing to make a recipe from the 30-something I’ve still to cook from Jamie’s 15 minute meals (cooking though a cookbook: 75% complete – yay!) and as many fancy salads as I can fit into a week. Here’s the delicious fish sandwich I cooked yesterday.
Say one thing you really want to do that you’ll take the time for this week!
I volunteered to make New Year’s cake to celebrate with my Greek friends in Trondheim. It’ll take me a big part of Thursday’s afternoon, but baking makes me really happy.
What is the word to hold on to this week?
. I’ve been going through a phase again, that I’m over-analysing everything. This week I want to focus on doing and being effective, instead of passively over-thinking things.
What did you do last night?
A friend came over and we baked this cake for her birthday. It’s the best apple cake you’ll ever have. Then, we watched Easy A on my new projector. Emma Stone is my favorite. Can’t wait to see La La Land.

If there’s one thing that can lift away any dark thought, that’s cooking for someone else. That makes me so happy. Can you feel a pattern in this post. Life lately has been all about food.
What did you have for breakfast today?
What I always have for breakfast when I’m home. That is a porridge with Jamie Oliver’s granola dust and a banana. I also had a cappuccino.
When do you wake up in the morning?
It all depends on the time I go to bed the previous night. This morning I wanted to go for a run, so I was up around 7.
What is your everyday look?
Lulu Lemon black leggings or my favorite Diesel jeans, a cheap H&M t-shirt and a wool cardigan or sweater on top. I’ve acquired quite a collection of cardigans and sweaters in many colors and I love every single one of them. I also wear my favorite Nike running shoes (that would be Lunarglide). I currently have 3 pairs, two black and a white one. When it comes to make up, I wear Clinique’s Line Smoothing concealer over Kiehl’s Ultra Facial cream. For blush I’m using Stila Convertible Color in Peony, that I apply with my fingers. I also dab a bit of MAC’s Groundwork paint pot on my eyelids and blend it with my fingers. I use a tiny bit of loose powder and whatever mascara I have on hand. If I’m in the mood for red lips, I go for Sephora Cream Lipstain in Always Red, otherwise I use Nuxe Reve de Miel. It takes me less than 10 minutes, but I look so much more polished.
