The other day when I was busy doing my evening skin care routine, what Axel asked me came as a surprise. “Sweetie, how can you always be happy and so positive?” My answer to him “I choose to be happy.” You know, living a happy life sure does sound good, but the thing is, it is not always as easy as it is said. There are always issues or something that leaves us with worries. And I, for instance often can’t seem to get my head around everything. Though, as I am growing older, the easier it gets to find out what makes me happy or not. I realize that I am more aware of my surroundings, the people I spend my time with and anything that affects my emotions.
To tell you the truth, I was never a happy kind of person. It is a choice I made. My past and the mistakes that I made bothered me so much. I could worry for days. On top of this, I would get so pissed about smalls things that happened in my life. Choosing to be happy meant letting go of my fears and concerns. Worrying too much did not change anything. I started to turn all my experiences into life lessons. And instead of approaching life with negativity, I looked at the bright and good things. My shoulders felt lighter than ever before. I suddenly did not have to worry about the things I could have done differently.
I can’t put it in words how jolly I am when I take the time to be grateful for what I have. Moreover, I do appreciate the woman I’ve become today. It is a simple act that has a positive impact. Once in a while, I like to spend time alone, to be kind to myself and celebrate the small wins. I’m currently putting an effort to be genuinely kind to the people I meet and engage with on a daily basis. It is something that leaves me glowing in the inside. Talking and bonding with other women brightens me up. Through sharing our stories, we inspire, encourage and motivate each other. It makes me even happier.
Do you have ways that help you stay happy and positive? Would love to hear your thoughts.
Thank you for reading and talk to you super soon
I was super excited when Axel mentioned to me that he was going for a motorcycle trip with his colleagues the other day. I knew exactly what I wanted to do. Treat myself to a solo dinner at the harbour. You might have read on this post, that I the like idea of spending time alone once in a while. I personally think it is important to regularly treat myself to these moments. Life can be chaotic at times, and we need to take a little break, to nurture and take care of ourselves.
I quickly made pasta for dinner, packed everything on my bike and took off to the harbour. It was a super gorgeous evening with lots of sunshine, and I could not be more happier.
Outfit of the evening
My pick was a super light blush dress with the most delicate lace. My chosen accessory for my outfit was this Cherry Blush IPhone cover, which I recently got as gift from Richmond and Finch. I am currently obsessed with all things blush tones. What’s not to love about this colour? I like that, blush colour is super soft and goes with almost everything.
As I was going through Richmond and Finch, I had a hard time deciding between this Cherry blush and Pink rose cover. I liked both covers but my final decision was based on the fact that I love the cherry blossoms. To me this iPhone cover embodies nature in a very unique way. It has a fine-looking rose gold details that makes is super chic. The cover also has a smooth matte finish that makes it easy to hold.

Hello, summer and Hello, everyone! One thing I love about this summer season is the cheerful mood that’s around every corner in the city. There are people everywhere, cafés are popped up and so many outdoor activities at the moment. Despite the unpredictable weather this year, I still feel excited about this summer holidays. Axel and I have no plans for travelling, but instead, we will be camping in different places here in Denmark. I’m looking forward, as there are so many attractive cities in this country that I would like to see and get to know.
Aalborg is such a beautiful city that is full of charming spots. You already know from this post , that I love biking and taking walks. I feel like life is all good when I am on top of my bike biking around discovering the city’s neighbourhood.
On this day, I spent the rest of the afternoon and evening in a quiet spot that I found a few kilometres away from the city centre. It was a perfect place and all I what I needed. I might sound like a loner, but I do value and enjoy to have peaceful moments all by myself. It’s a great way for me to breathe and reflect. Normally, my days are full of a long to do list and many worries. So, these quiet moments allow me to rest my mind with no interruptions. I tend to feel recharged both mentally and emotionally.
For my outfit, I decided to wear shades of blue. I added more colour by using this bandana as a neck scarf and these Zara loafers that I got from the short trip to Gothenburg, Sweden.
Hope you like these pictures that I shot myself.
Thank you for reading, and talk to you super soon, again.
Happy Monday and great week, ahead!

Aahhhh!!! Another blogger event that I attended last week. I am always excited whenever I get invited to this kind of events. While it is fun to be part of, they give me the opportunity to build a relationship with brands, get to know other bloggers, and expand my network. I also find it an excellent way to create awareness for my little blog.
For this particular event, I got to discover Carre Jewellery brand which has a beautiful and amazing collection on jewellery. In my opinion, some of the jewellery has an antique touch with fine-looking coloured stone. I’m the type of woman who likes minimal jewellery, but I must admit that I fell in love with their collection. The small details are a perfect finish to each piece, which makes them so unique and feminine. The great thing about Carré Jewellery is that they do not limit you. You can play around and create different looks. You can also mix and match for a more sophisticated look that can suit any personality.
It was a great evening and event filled with great moments. Karma Sushi delivered top quality sushi. My most favourite are the Karma Crunch and the Sizzling Tuna that tasted so amazing.
For my outfit, I opted for this flowy and asymmetrical off-shoulder dress with florals. I am obsessed with the fact that it exposes my shoulders and it comes with a belt to cinch my waist. Alternately, I can wear it without the belt and use it as a scarf or as an accessory for by handbag, which I can’t wait to try.
Thank you, Aalborg Bloggers x Carre Jewellery for a great event and evening.
And, Thank you for reading my post. I hope you enjoy the pictures.
Talk to you super soon
