It’s been beautiful round here during the last couple of weeks: the leaves have started to turn and are slowly tumbling towards the ground, trees are heaving with apples and plums and the smaller shrubs are brimming with bright red berries, waiting to feed hungry birds during colder days to come. It might be that my […]
I’ve never been one for New Year’s resolutions that require you to turn your life upside down in January. Because January is a b**** of a month. It’s cold, it’s grey and everything seems to be tainted by a slightly depressing post Christmas hangover. January is the month of December’s credit card bill, it’s the […]
Ever wondered how the other half are leading their spiritual, gluten free, organically-fed life? Have a look at Sienna Miller’s physical space. And be prepared to laugh. Namasté, my lovelies! Thank you, Xandi, for posting this in the first place!
Yoga is serious business. It’s one of the fastest growing sports (if you want to call it a sport), people all around the world love it, and they have done so for at least 4,000 years. And of course I am paying good money for a course that will hopefully see me coming out as […]
In my quest to look somewhat presentable despite wearing leggings and lycra for most of the week (you can call me a sartorially challenged yogi), I came across London based yoga wear brand Wellicious. What I love about Wellicious is that they are eco friendly, that they use natural, ultra comfortable fabrics AND that they […]

In case you were wondering if I had disappeared in a thick cloud of gloomy homesickness, moping about in the Nordic landscape – I haven’t. I have just been busy. Way too busy to mope.
Everything closes in Sweden over the summer. Everything, including yoga studios. I have managed to find and attend a handful of yoga classes over the last month, and all of them have left lasting impressions on me. Not always for the best reasons. If the past couple of weeks have taught me one thing, it’s […]
There is a German catchphrase for times in which nothing goes to plan: “Es ist der Wurm drin.” The worm indeed does appear to be in it. Somehow, I feel like I am carrying a gigantic post-it note on my back that invites the universe to kick my arse. The sale of our flat here […]
I have been a bit surprised by just how incredibly well my body has responded to the month-long course of supplements I tried last month. One reason to where the sudden glow came from is certainly down to the quality of the product. Skinade is much praised and acclaimed for, and my own experience hasn’t […]
